Windows 10/Control Panel/Mouse has a system feature that will snap the mouse cursor to the dafault box in any dialog/dialogue box, so for example if you right click an image, and "Save to" the cursor will snap immediately to "Save" in the Win 10 dialog box.

For me this working fine until yesterday and has suddenly stopped working. Other browsers respect the Win 10 settings so it is something in firefox that is overriding Windows.

Can't see any obvious settings in about:config

Would be grateful for any help

[I have refreshed Firefox and am ready to do a complete re-install if necessary]

I often visit BBs and contribute questions and answers on them. While making an entry the page often suddenly jumps or scrolls up or down. I have positioned the page where I want it and these sudden scrolls are very distracting. I would like the page to scroll only one or two lines and ONLY when my typing reaches the very bottom of the window. Can this be accomplished? Is there a setting? Or what?

Specs are Alienware 18 running Windows 10 Enterprise, build 1909. I have updated drivers, my Synaptic settings don't include a virtual scroll option, but my Alienware FX program does, so I turned that off. No help there. I have gone into the registry and changed the Qword settings, my system is 64 bit, and messed with the task manager. Do I need to go back to and make it Dword? Nothing has really helped including using cmd prompt to switch off a setting. Any thoughts from anyone would be much appreciated.

I'm 99% sure this just started after my browser updated to 74.0.1 recently. I started noticing some pages going stale and had to shift-refresh them. Watching the developer panel FF was displaying a cached version of the page without making a request to the remote server. This is fine and all, EXCEPT the time had passed beyond what the cache-control 'max-age' & expires headers were set to, and the cache-control header included 'must-revalidate'.

These pages weren't just clicking back/forth either, they stayed stale even after clicking links to said pages.

Some of my add-ons were corrupted or become unavailable after 74.0.1 update, WHY??? I use a lot (indispensable to me!) the addon Save Page WE and now is not available despite it is listed and appear as active in addons list. Also, some addons started to behave weird, like Adguard which now show a annoying setup window on each new Firefox load. Also OneTab is not loading, the icon still in tool bar but it does nothing. Please, what happens? I know there are improves in each new update, but at what price??? Please stop that!

Half the time when I need to print websites to PDF, using print to pdf function, Firefox does not print the webpage properly. I know that I can probably go in the printing setting to change it for that page and that might fix the problem. But for my project, I need to do this nearly 150 websites everyday. So fiddling around with every other website and Firefox print setting is not an option. I have attached a sample print to PDF to show the problem. When I print, half the content is hidden. In contrast, whenever I use Google Chrome, I never have this issue. The default printing settings just work, every single time in Chrome. I don't want to switch to Chrome because I want to support the Mozilla/Firefox mission. But the minor issues in Firefox are frustrating.

Between the lack of a translation tool that can translate the webpage and the poor default printing setting, I am nearly ready to switch. Firefox developers, if you're reading this, please fix this printing issue. While you're at it, please add an inbuilt webpage translation tool. Nobody want to copy and past webpages to translate them. I really want to stick with Mozilla, but you have to improve these little features within the browser.

Actually never mind, cannot attach the pdf to show the issue in this forum. FANTASTIC (sarcasm)! Here is a sample screen shot instead. It shows what the print out looks like when "print to pdf" file is saved.

As stated in the title, for some reason firefox likes to freeze itself, other programs and sometimes whole windows by using up 100% of disk. As windows resource monitor shows, this happens when mozilla tries to write a lot of stuff to profile files simultaneously, which happens every half an hour or so. The only addon I am currently running is adblock+. The amount of tabs open doesn't seem to affect when this happens or for how long. Usually open tabs are social media, yt, wiki and google docs.

If you seach on a page (ctrl f) for a text in a page, and that text is found on the page, but is not currently inside of the viewing window, it does not result in a hit. If you scroll down so you can see the text, and search again, it will hit.

This only occurs on Linux (Elementary OS), FF v 74.0 x64.

Is this a known issue?

Everytime I need to go file browser or terminal console and change the file name and extension to the correct one prior to open the file.

Hello,

I've been encountering some weird problem with reopening Firefox tabs. When I close the application and reopen it, all the previously open tabs come back again. However, sometimes when I click on a reopened tab and the tab reloads for the first time after restarting Firefox, it would direct me to a search engine instead (sometimes Ecosia, sometimes Google. No, I don't have plugins for either.). I can navigate to the previously open website by clicking the "Go back one page" button on the top left, but I'm still curious on why the new tab would be redirected to a search engine in the first place. Could it be because the indexing of tab histories is a bit off?

The misbehaving tab could have been at any webpage when I shut down Firefox. I've seen tabs previously at Wikipedia pages, Gmail, or even PDF documents being redirected to Google after restart.

Device is Mac Catalina 15.3 (i.e. the buggy version that still crashes my mail app over an entire half freaking year).

Hi,

queston 1

in Firefox 74.0 under "Privacy & Security" > "Enhanced Tracking Protection" I selected "Custom" and checked/ticked all available entries: Cookies (All Cookies!), Tracking content, Cryptominers and Fingerprinters.

I had cleared all data (especially all cookies). Then I reloaded page. Although I did the settings above, Firefox still stored cookies. How is that possible?

I see the stored cookies with the help of extension called "Cookie Quick Manager": https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/cookie-quick-manager

question 2

is there any extension which blocks the "Allow cookie" permission requests of website, where you need to click on OK or Allow to make the popup disappearing?

Thanks !

Hello,

I have Firefox with two profiles, Personal and Work. I also have a VPN provided by the company which is setup on Windows 10 as a Public Network, on both profiles the network settings are the same and while the Personal has anti ads and privacy plugins, the Work doesn't have a single plugin.

My issue is that the Personal profile is able to use the VPN and access the work network while the Work profile is not. With both network settings matching, are there any settings in the About:config that i can check that would co-relate with the issue that i'm having?

Firefox on Linux/ Wayland/ Sway is haveing trouble scaling on multiple screens when the screens have different scaling ratios

My setup:

Firefox versions 70-74, developer version and stable; Ubuntu 19.10 with Wayland/ Sway; Internal Monitor 3000x2000 with scaling ratio 2.0 + External Monitor 1920x1080 with scaling ratio 1.0

Ever since version 70 I noticed that Firefox would on first start scale either according to the external or internal monitor, and be perfectly workable on that one. But when moving it to the other monitor/ opening a new window on the other monitor it would not scale properly, but render according to the scaling factor of the other monitor. So, e.g. when moving from the internal to the external screen it would only render to the top left quarter of the screen, while the application was actually being the right size. At the same time the input mapping was according to the actual window dimensions, and not according to the visual rendering of Firefox. This would also happen the other way round, with Firefox then only rendering the top left part of the web page to the entire screen.

You can see this well on the attached screenshot, but notice that sway is a tiling window manager, so Firefox should actually be exactly the same size as the terminal next to it. Firefox also renders like this when the scaling factor was changed at run time, so the issue seems to me that Firefox on Wayland checks the scaling factor on startup just once globally and does not realize when it was changed or that it can be different on different monitors.
