Recently firefox has started printing everything in duplex (double sided). The print dialog that pops up when printing has the duplex box unchecked, so should print single sided.

In about:config print.printer_HP_LaserJet_4050_Series_PCL_5.print_duplex is set to 2. If I change this to 0 I get single sided printing for a random small amount of time, but at some point it reverts to 2 and duplex printing.

This does not occur in other browsers.

I have been using Firefox on a new computer since May 2018. I always had the setting for saving my browsing history turned on. Unfortunately, I have recently discovered that I can only view the history of the last 6 months (February 15 to today). Does this mean Firefox deleted the history from May 2018 to January 2020 unbeknown to me? Is it a matter of setting the places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages parameter in about:config to a certain level? I was able to set this parameter to a higher level now, but it did not help to recover the history. Is there any other way?

Firefox repeatedly opens empty tabs or windows after you click on a link

Your webpage https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-repeatedly-opens-empty-tabs-... accurately describes the problem, but the solutions offered don't fit.

I don't want to start a new session (I keep a great deal in tabs) and this isn't a problem with crash or unexpected close. It has nothing to do with content type. It has nothing to do with unwanted content. The pages are blank.

I'm writing because I have a particular website I want to visit and Firefox refuses it open it. I click on a link. I get a blank page. I copy the link to a new tab. I get a blank page. I shut down and restart Firefox I get a blank page. I rebooted the computer, I get a blank page. Sometimes it helps to press extra firmly on mouse buttons. Not today. Sometimes it helps to copy the link and use Paste and Go, not today.

At least this time the reload button is clickable -- not that clicking it does anything. There are times when the reload button is grayed out. There are times when the destination URL doesn't even show up in the URL bar.

This problem has been going on for many months, perhaps more than a year. Usually the work arounds work. Not today.

I get it that a problem is hard to fix if the software developers can't make it happen. I used to be a programmer. So I would be glad to try to help developers fix this problem.

Whenever I go to a web page that has twitter or instagram content, I have to right click and open the specific link in a new tab in order to see it, which is a pain in the butt.

I've opened the same web pages in Opera or Vivaldi, and there I can see the embedded content. Why can't I see embedded content like this in Firefox?
