Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Regards

Yum SSL Connection Problem

I am attempting a yum EOL upgrade on a 5 year old Centos 6.5 server. I have performed the same upgrade procedure on 4 other Centos 6.5 servers without any problems. "yum" is the Centos utility used to download and install system packages from Centos repositories. This is a Catch 22. Since yum on this server is after End-Of-Life for the operating system, yum is not working on this server. Since the current yum installation on this server is not working, I am not able to use yum to download any Centos 6.5 system packages. There are yum servers that are made available to support yum after the operating system End-Of-Life. This requires manually modifying the yum configuration files in yum.repos.d to point to the Centos 6.5 End-Of-Life yum repositories. I have made this change on a number of Centos 6.5 servers without any problems, but one very important server is failing to connect to the Centos 6.5 End-Of-Life repository. Since yum is not working on this server, I can not upgrade Firefox. When I attempt to manually upgrade Firefox with a Firefox RPM, the upgrade fails because of a large number of library dependencies. This makes upgrading Firefox on the server manually almost impossible. A simple solution would be to perform a full operating system upgrade on the computer, but that would wipe out all the files on the computer. My only option is to fix the yum EOL SSL connection problem with the version of Firefox installed on this computer. The SSL error is:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] problem making ssl connection Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

I have googled this error and attempted several suggested solutions, but none have worked. I went into about.config, and made the following changes:

In about:config, I tried setting:

security.tls.version.max;4

security.ssl3.rsa_aes_128_sha;false security.ssl3.rsa_aes_256_sha;false security.ssl3.rsa_des_ede3_sha;false

These changes are not helping. I did not make these changes on other Firefox installations for this yum EOL upgrade, and they are working fine.

I do not know what is unique about this particular server that is causing the SSL Connection problem with:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml

On all other servers, I can successfully connect with that server.

Again the yum connection error is:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] problem making ssl connection Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

If I attempt to connect to this server using Firefox on this server, the connection fails with the error:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to vault.centos.org. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

I would appreciate any suggestions that you could make to help with these connection problems. I do not know what is unique about this particular Centos 6.5 server configuration that could be causing this problem. Your help with this problem would be appreciated.

Hi, I really like using an extension frequently. However, every so often the extension's quick-access icon disappears from the Firefox Menu Bar. I am able to get it to re-appear by disabling it and re-enabling it, however, it's a tedious hassle doing it regularly. And I would prefer not to pin it to the Overflow Menu, as is available through the right-click dropdown from the Menu Bar, since it's an additional layer of obfuscation. How can I pin the extension properly to the Menu Bar?

After installing the beta FF 98.0b3 in order to work around the Webroot problem currently going on with v97, I've noticed that whenever I download something, the download popup window stays active until I click on something. I don't want to remove the download button because I want to monitor download progress, and at times, I DO want to look at specific downloads from time to time. But the fact that the window automatically pops up and stays there until I click on something is annoying.

I saw similar posts several years old about older versions which don't apply now.

So, is there a way to disable this thing without completely removing the download progress indicator from my toolbar?

Thanks again for the help!

In the latest Firefox update a very annoying new "feature" arrived. When you download something, an automatic drop down menu appears in the top toolbar and stays there until the file is being downloaded and closed after some seconds after the download is finished. You can click of course somewhere to make it vanish.

This is TOO ANNOYING. It also covers a portion of the main page. How can i disable this behavior and return to the old one where nothing appears automatically?

Background: I am on the Beta track, currently running 98.0b4 on Mac OSX 11.6.1, until kinks are worked out of Monterey.

Issue: One of the latest FF upgrades has killed my ability to login to Netflix. I get an orange popup field stating "Incorrect password. Please try again or you can reset your password." The password is fine, as I'm able to login using my backup browsers, Safari and Vivaldi. The issue persists when I try to log in using a private window that doesn't allow any add-ons, so I don't see that as the issue.

Firefox is still my preferred and default browser, so I'd like to see this resolved before.

Workaround is to switch apps away from Firefox and then back into it - then the search bar hides.b

This happens on my OnePlus 5 running Android 10. The same problem doesn't happen on my OnePlus 8 Pro running Android 11.

When I try to add something to my top sites I get the message

> Top site limit reached To add a new top site, remove one. Touch and hold the site and select remove.

However this doesn't make sense as I haven't chosen any of my top sites. I removed the defaults (Google, wikipedia) and the rest all show the remove from history option instead of remove. It seems like if you don't have 16 pinned then it fills in the rest based on history. In this case all 16 are filled in based on history and 0 are pinned. As far as I can tell it's fubar and I can't add anything to my top sites. Is there anything I can do?

Sometimes when starting Firefox ("developer edition", running on Ubuntu 20.04, Gnome shell, X11 windowing system) it appears 80% full screen -ish, but actually the window is full screen size - you just can't see it. It flashes really fast, and doesn't repaint correctly. It's very hard to get rid of it as you're never sure what you're clicking on.

Restarting it a few times and I get lucky and it works. I think this problem has gotten worse over the last few months.

I believe it might be something to do with the anti fingerprinting, but I'm not sure. It's making it unusable for several friends, but I'm a bit more stubborn so I'm looking for a fix.

How do I change the font size of Firefox's headers elements: menu, tabs, bookmark toolbar, bookmark manager without changing the font across Mac iOS or otherwise messing up the other settings?

I've searched this question and found one answer archived that did not really fix the problem. I'm looking for an extension or a setting integrated in FF, not a font size change in Mac iOS (Monterey) or one that changes the font in the browser pages.

Love FF and Mozilla and all the volunteers who make my entire work day so easy with great, secure, handsome products! I'm a devoted fan. Thank you!
