Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

Since the last update to Firefox I have not been able to print using the system dialog. Only the new Firefox print screen comes up. How can I return to system printing dialog?

Also the ability to set print quality in the Firefox print screen does not exist. I can do copies, black or color, duplex printing, etc but not set the print quality like draft, text, photo, etc.

I also have many forms I've setup for printing and I can't access these.

Thanks, Pat

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

Recently, I noticed Firefox has a new printer dialogue box. When that dialogue box starting showing up, all of my two-sided print jobs are BACKWARDS. The back page is flipped 180 degrees from the front page. WRONG!

As a sanity check, I double-checked with Chrome and Opera. No problem. Double-sided print jobs print as usual (i.e., when you flip the page over in the horizontal direction, the print orientation remains correct).

HP1320 laser printer. Win 7 / 64 bit. HP printer driver.

Somehow, the new Firefox Browser printer dialogue overlay is overriding the HP printer driver. Please fix!

Today I kept getting the above error message when I tried to log on to Halifax online banking. I do not run a VPN. I cleared the Halifax cookies. I rebooted my router and I rebooted my laptop. I still get this error message. However I can log on OK if I use Chrome so this must be a Firefox issue. Any other suggestions?

Hello, I'm not sure if I chose the right topic above.

I'm trying to visit a site which is still using http. But Firefox is automatically redirecting to https, where of course it cannot resolve the site.

In settings, I have it set for "Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode". But still, Ff is redirecting.

I don't know. Maybe I should set for https only, and then enter an exception??

I have searched for a solution, but for every solution I find, when I look up how to do it, it says, before you try this, try that first. After about 5 rounds of that, I got too confused and gave up.

Oh, I also cleared the cache, but no help.

I've enabled all the extra info below. But let me know if you need any other specific info. Do you need the address of the website?

Thank you very much.

First, I am 78 and never used porn emails. For years, I did not receive porn emails. Some time ago, I started to get them in my spam box. You can't block them since they change their email address each day. Can't Mozilla in some way block them ? I could change my email address but so many friends and business have it.

After firefox update to 100.0 - i can't use any of my addons, and cant install new one. All my current updates appears in "disabled" status, and there's no "enable" button. I have many addons, so it's the global problem.

Also, i can't install any of updates from addons.mozilla.org, i get message "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". All addon xpi files are downloaded without problem using "save as", also, after clicking "install" on addons website i see download progress.

Please help to resolve this issue!
