When printing double-sided from Firefox 103, the second page comes out upside-down. A previous thread 'Two-sided printing rotating on wrong axis' reported this problem for Firefox 85 / 86, and said that it was fixed by updating to the current version. I have the current version, but am getting the same problem. I have tried manually setting instructions to flip on long side (portrait orientation), but that doesn't work. Help!

Just upgraded 100 → 103 : how to disable <Ctrl><W> now ?

Until FF100, I used to disable <Ctrl><W> (close tab) by modifying browser/omni.ja, commenting the following line out in chrome/browser/content/browser/browser.xhtml :

<key id="key_close" data-l10n-id="close-shortcut" command="cmd_close" modifiers="accel" reserved="true"/>

It worked until FF100, but doesn't work anymore in FF103 : commenting that line out seems to have no effect on <Ctrl><W>.

Does anybody know why ? Or does anybody know a way to disable <Ctrl><W> ?

Background : on French keyboards, the <W> key is right next to <X>, so when I try to do a cut/paste (<Ctrl><X> → <Ctrl><V>) I sometimes end up doing <Ctrl><W> by mistake, thus closing the tab. Re-opening the tab doesn't always do the trick, sometimes the latest work is lost.

I updated the windows 10 installation on my Toshiba satellite laptop yesterday, 07-31-2022 and when i opened Firefox after that, it was huge - I have to dial it down to about 70% on the zoom to have it display even somewhat normally. I don't find any current answers when I google the question, so I'm asking here as I don't know what else to try. I've attached a screenshot to show how large it is, even at 67% zoom.

thanks!

Firefox 103 screws with website zooming if you use the "Make text bigger" accessibility setting in Windows. 150% for example now zooms in a lot more with the accessibility setting in Windows set to 120%.

How do I undo this change so that 150% is 150% and not bigger than 150%? I had all my frequented websites set up how I liked it and now this comes along and messes it all up >:V at the moment it seems like 120% Firefox + 120% Accessibility is similar to what 150% in Firefox was like but it's not exactly the same. I've now gotta go futz with zoom levels for each web page I frequent again to find what looks most comfortable for each one.

Also this change greatly modifies consistency when it comes to the granularity of zooming. For example, what is 100% zoom when Accessibility is set to 120% so that I can avoid filtered scaling being applied to pictures? Why is the in-browser percentage indication not accurate with the level of zooming actually being applied?

The zoom level I choose is no longer the zoom level applied, there is now a multiplier in effect. So 50% isn't 50% anymore, 60% isn't 60% anymore, 70% isn't 70% anymore, 80% isn't 80% anymore, 90% isn't 90% anymore, 100% isn't 100% anymore, 110% isn't 110% anymore, 120% isn't 120% anymore, 130% isn't 130% anymore, 140% isn't 140% anymore etc.

A website that looked good at 133% can no longer be viewed at 133% if the Accessibility setting isn't also 133%.

Not a fan of whoever decided to implement this seemingly without a way to turn it off.

deploying firefox-add-ons via group policies doesn't work anymore after proxy-change

Hello,

I used to deploy add-ons via group policies - this worked like a charm: Firefox esr (91.11.0esr x64), ADMX-templates in Sysvol\PolicyDefinitions, Group Policies: User configuration, administrative templates, mozilla, firefox, add-ons --> install add-ons --> https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/1234567/goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi

A few months ago, we had to change our network-configuration. We were using a proxy before, but our proxy had direct access to the internet. Now our proxy forwards everything to another proxy. Since about that time, add-on-deployment via gpo doesn't work anymore. It could be something else, but i suspect the proxy-change.

I tried to deploy unc-paths, internal websites and different syntaxes; none of this works:

  • http://192.168.100.10/goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi
  • http://internalwebsite/goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi
  • https://192.168.100.10/goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi
  • https://internalwebsite/goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi
  • \\192.168.100.20\netshare\goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi
  • \\internalfileserver\netshare\goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi
  • file://///192.168.100.20/netshare/goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi
  • file://///internalfileserver/netshare/goodaddon-1.0.01.xpi

As you can see I tried using internal sites, so that no proxy would be needed. And I also added these sites to the allowed add-on-installation-sites (computer configuration, same group policy). The sites are all accessible; if I enter these addresses as url, firefox can access the xpi-file.

I know how to pack add-ons into the firefox-setup-file; that still works. But first of all, firefox is already installed on most of my clients. Second, after a fresh installation of firefox with this self-created package, all add-ons are installed, but not activated. And I would like to restrict activation/deactivation of add-ons via gpo.

  1. 1 Are there other ways to deploy add-ons in a domain-network (e.g. script-based)?
  2. 2 Are there any logs where I could find out what exactly goes wrong?
  3. 3 Are there any other syntaxes I could try (group policy urls)?
  4. 4 Can anyone guess what the problem is (why it is not working anymore)?

Help would be very much appreciated.

Best regards.

Hi all,

So I recently got a new laptop for work, so naturally installed the latest version of Firefox on it. I see in a previous version, they changed the way "Open file" works, so now instead of it downloading to your TEMP folder and opening the file and hiding where it is "saved", it now just SAVES the file to the Downloads folder and opens it.

This is a problem for me at work, as I essentially open 100s of files every day and my Downloads folder is just full of junk now that I would need to sort out from what is junk and what isn't. Is there a way to change this back to the way it was, or is there a way to make it so that when I tell Firefox to OPEN a file, that it saves it a different location from my default Downloads folder? This way I could simply schedule a task to auto delete files older than X days, without risking files that I actually want saved.

Thanks very much.

I am transferring a huge mass of emails from many accounts to a new machine. To start with, I have chosen to export the Local Folders. For that purpose I have installed the extension ImportExportTools NG and used all combinations I could think of like "Export Folder" or "Export Folder with subfolders". When trying to import them on the new system, I always get empty folders, or the message 'This "MBOX" file uses a different format from the Thunderbird folder format and it's possible that Thunderbird can't handle it properly'.

And sure enough, the resulting folder is corrupted with messages that can't be read.

First of all, I don't know if the files are really MBOX files, because they have no extension, and if not, how do I generate proper MBOX files? Secondly, if these are MBOX files, why can't ImportExportTools NG not handle the files it has just generated?

Alternatively, I could also copy the folders directly, but would that not mess up the internal database?

Hello Lovely Firefox Volunteers,

I hope this email finds you well. I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox, and other open source projects. Firefox is a fantastic internet browser!

Having said that, I was shocked and dismayed at what I encountered today. I was doing some tests for screen-reader usability on a website, and I came across the following:

Image 1 (attached): Advertisement of Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox

Image 2 (attached): No Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox are Available

The Firefox team is advertising screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, which don't seem to exist. I don't think the recommendation here should be: take down the advertisement for the Firefox native screen-reader add-ons/link to them, these seem to be really important for accessibility, and the Firefox team seems to acknowledge this. :)

There is some other missing piece - maybe there are Screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, and they aren't being linked to? Maybe the wrong tag is being used? (The auto tag that is used in the link is "screen reader"). Maybe there aren't any, and this is an area that needs some additional attention?

Anyway, I just thought I should bring this to your attention as making our internet accessible to people living with blindness and loss of sight is extremely important.

Sincerely, Katie

Hi!

I hardly use tabs, and I have a widescreen notebook. So one of the most important features a browser must have is not to waste vertical space.

Unfortunately, Firefefox has always tab bar open even if there is only one tab.

Fortunately, there is a css code to overcome this problem.

Unfortunately, it does not work with FF 103 anymore. It always shows a "+" sign.

How can I get rid of tab bar now?

Dimi

PS: This was my code, there are others too but also not working anymore:

 tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {
   display: none !important;
 }
 #tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;
 }

With the new v85 of Firefox... for Microsoft Print to PDF...

the defaults for print headers & footers has changed and is no longer available to edit or even view. It seems as though my settings remain in place for other printing options like my physical printer but even there the options are not editable or viewable.

There used to be a "page setup" option but I have not be able to find this anywhere anymore.

I'm assuming that it has to do with the bug fix for pdf printing but doesn't seem that it should be an intended outcome of the fix.

Any work arounds anyone knows about or has found?

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT
