With "print on both sides" checked, the "backside" of each page is printed inverted top to bottom. I believe this began after the latest update. I'd like to revert to the old, more conventional, and (for me, at least) easier-to-use older system.

I'm going to say that for the last 3 versions of Firefox, I've had issues with many pages not loading images, not displaying the most current data, and every once in a long while (very infrequent) a page will just fail to completely load and I'll have to hit refresh so the wheels on the bus keep spinning.

Pages I have issues with: Yahoo Yahoo News Facebook CNN

The not loading images is the most frequent issue. Sometimes I'll need to reload a page a couple of times to see a pic. This is NOT on pages I have cached, but rather new pages I'm visiting.

The issue of not seeing new content is especially clear when approving new members or posts to a group within Facebook. This is a very regular occurance.

I just recently reloaded my computer from scratch (Mid Feb 2021), and this did NOT alleviate the issue, but rather it continued unabated.

The loading image issue looks like this.

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

Hello,

I usually had no problems deleting a single form entry that was once saved. As described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/control-whether-firefox-automatically-fills-forms#w_deleting-individual-form-entries

But now this doesn't work anymore. I can't delete the form entry. Nothing happens when I follow the instruction. I tried it on two different laptops. Right now I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-Bit). Is this a known issue of my Firefox version or has the method changed?

Thank you in advance! M.

I have selected 'use custom setting for history' option and checked last three option too. In setting of history setting I also ticked on 'browsing and downloading history'. So Firefox should clear my browsers history when I close it. but it doesn't. Please help me with this. I am using latest version of Firefox on windows10 if this does matter.

Every few days, my firefox homepage settings and options reset to factory defaults. I normally have about 8 pages that open EVERY time i create a new window and its frustrating to have to manually re-add them to the homepage every few days. Same thing with my toolbars - they reset every few days. my default pdf viewer also changes every few days. Bookmarks are still present - just the

I use the 'options' , 'homepage', 'use current pages' to set these up. I am running the latest version 85.0.1. I have seen other threads on this topic and so far none of those suggestions have helped.

Please help.

What a tragedy!

My notebook just crashed! But being an IT person, I was completely confident that everything being in the cloud! I have nothing to worry about! That was right except for Firefox! I logged in to my account turned on sync Password came back, my containers also came back! But bookmarks completely disappeared! NOTHING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!

I tried profile thing there was 2 profiles in the new installations! None have any bookmarks what a mess!! How did Firefox fail so miserably in such a basic thing! I'm speechless!

And what made things worse that there is absolutely no way to contact anyone at Firefox to ask, or at least to express how outragous and incompetent is not being able to retrieve bookmarks on a synced account! This stupid local or different installation concept!! Oh my god who came with such stupid idea! And why its only for bookmarks!

I'm sure there should be away, as my bookmarks also disappeared from all other devices mobile and desktops alltogether!!

Are there any smart solution for such very stupid premetive problem! As my bookmarks literally in hundreds!

My history sidebar doesn't show my most recently visited websites even when sorted by "Last Visited".

If I start to type the name of the website, they do appear there (so they are being recorded in history). But it doesn't matter what sites I visit, the last visited links don't change.

Does anyone know what might be causing this?
