Hello,

after an internet session I'm using the "Clear Recent History" (STRG+SHIFT+Delete) function. Sometimes this window doesn't close automatically, when I'm click the OK-Button.

Is this a BUG?

OK, sorry if I dont know all the technical jargon but here are a couple issues I have been having. Currently using FF88.0 on Windows 10 Home edition.

A few updates ago I noticed when I go to print a page from the internet (specifically eBay Order Details) it no longer prints the default auction picture as it appears on the screen but enlarges it up to the original download size. This make the shrink to fit option no longer work properly. So in order to get all of the information I need on one page of print I have to constantly change the size from 40-60% to make it work. Frustrating and time wasting.

Second issue: This one just started with the last update. I use a Rollo label printer and I had everything set up where it worked just fine. After the last update it prints half labels and I cant get it to adjust back properly. Huge issue and time waster.

On average I feel like this slows me down 15-30 minutes a day total.

I have firefox developer edition 88.0b9, I have disabled updates using policies.json(DisableAppUpdate: true), so the infamous "update to the latest version" popup with the green icon went away. But now it seems there's another form of those popups that firefox employs. And in the search bar this time. Why aren't they disabled by DisableAppUpdate? How can I disable them using about:config or something of the sort? Pretty sure I've got no malware or anything, always been careful about that kind of thing. Don't have many programs installed. Don't have any addons except an adblocker. All the buttons on that annoying popup lead to official mozilla resources: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ So what do I do with those popups? I have no intention of updating(I don't want any redesigns, any new functionaly, any other things that would disrupt me and change the stuff I'm used to). Only want to disable those popups. That's the entire reason I used policies.json - to disable those annoying popups. But now another form of them appears.

Hello,

I've been getting an error for some time now. Firefox tabs suddenly crash (usually media tabs with video, like Twitch or video conference sites) and I can't seem to find a solution. But most importantly, many videos or live streams show graphic artifacts. You can check it in the attached screenshot). I have tried many things to solve it, but none worked. This is what I tried:

  • Changing cables and monitors.
  • Disabling extensions and plugins.
  • Disabling hardware acceleration.
  • Installing Firefox from scratch.
  • Installing an old version.
  • Installing Nightly.
  • Removing the GPU. The issue persisted with a different video card and with integrated graphics. So the GPU is not the issue.
  • Trying using another OS. I thought my Windows install might have been corrupt, but it also happened in Ubuntu.
  • Trying other browsers. I tried Chrome (which resulted in the issue as well) and Edge (which surprisingly did fine, it's my only solution right now).

I would love to keep using Firefox but it's a pain to watch media like this. I don't know if the issue might be from the motherboard or another component. Between the crashes and this I can't use it normally.

I can try providing any details needed to solve the problem. Could you please help me? I don't know what else I can try.

I recently was looking through my autofill addresses when I noticed a name that should not be there. Someone I do not know in some state that I do not live in. I quickly changed my firefox password and various passwords that may have been compromised.

My question is, how worried should I be? How did they get my password or access to a PC with my account active on it. Then why would they be so daft to save their name and address as the autofill?

Is there any way I can check when it was made or pass this on to Mozilla support?

Hello,

this is a basic question however nugging me all the time. About 2 months ago I switched from using Chrome to Mozilla. However about once every 2 days my Mozilla freeze for about 20 sec and not responding. It is not about the amount of tabs/windows I am working on, it happens quite randomly. I do have gaming laptop with lots of CPU and RAM if you may ask. Is there any way to get rid of occasional crashing? Any IT hack much appreciated :)

There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.

Dear all,

I recently have a problem with the Bitwarden Addon (1.49.1) and Firefox (88.0) on Windows 10 with my Surface Pro 7.

When I activate the the addon the window pops up and when I then tap on something in the window, for example, the settings or the field for password entry, then the extension closes.

This happens only in touch mode, when I tap on the windows. When I use a mouse or a pen it doesn't close.

There are some workarounds like open the addon in new windows or opening the virtual keyboard from the tray. But it has worked very well for a long time. Also in other chromium based browser it works still.

I contacted the Bitwarden Support and they could reproduce the problem, but are not able to fix it, because it has something to do with the particular environment for the add-ons in Firefox.

Is there something in the settings, which coud fix the problem or is it possible that it will be fixed in another update?

Best regards,

Sascha

So I have several accounts logged-in in Gmail:

/u/0 <- my main one /u/1 /u/2 /u/3

... but in Youtube I always used my /u/1 account, I have all my playlists there, etc.. and I want to have my /u/1 logged-in there as the main one while I also have my /u/0 as the main one in Gmail. I come from Opera and I didn't have any problem doing this, I just log-in in the desired order in Gmail, and then I log-in in Youtube with the account that I want. But in Firefox it links my gmail with my youtube, so if I log-out my /u/0 in youtube, it also logs out from Gmail. So when I put the /u/1 on first place in youtube it alter the order in my Gmail and /u/1 becames the main one.

How can I set it up correctly in Firefox? it is not a Gmail/Youtube problem, but a Firefox problem, since I can do it as I want in other browsers.

Thanks.

Hello!

I don't like to use DuckDuckGo, therefore I changed the Default Search Engine which works quite well. In addition I removed DuckDuckGo from the Search Shortcuts.

Nevertheless when I open a new tab and just type in "d" the first suggestion from auto-complete is always DuckDuckGo. This is quite annoying since one of my favourite websites starts with "d" as well. Is there a possibility to force auto-complete to suggest a specific website when I tipe in "d" or at least prevent auto-complete from suggesting DuckDuckGo?

Thanks!
