Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

I welcomed the Picture-in-Picture feature to the Mac, which allowed me to watch YouTube videos while performing other tasks.

Recently when I have clicked on the Picture-in-Picture icon, the view does the exact opposite of what I want to occur. I want a small window that I can move around and resize. Instead, the video goes Full Screen.

I've tried right-clicking on the icon and on the video, double-right-clicking, looking through Firefox settings, updating to the latest version, etc. -- but stiill don't know how to recover the Picture-in-Picture feature. How do I get that back? Thank you.

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

Hi - The last 2-3 Mac OS versions of FF (85.0.2, 86.0) are not allowing me to open Firefox>Preferences from the Firefox menu, the dashboard icon, or using Command-,

I'm only able to open the Preferences window by typing about:preferences in the address bar. If I keep a Preferences tab available, I'm able to navigate to that window using the aforementioned methods.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Ever since I installed the add-on Favicon Picker 2 that lets you change the bookmark icons, I can't open tabs any more. The second tab will open, but if you try to go to a site, the FIRST tab redirects to that site. Basically, I can only use one tab at a time. Is there any way I can keep this add-on and use tabs?

on your latest update 55.0 i have lost my home page icon and the size of the graphics are also oddly too large.

i hate updates! i don't want changes i can't correct or replace. i'm sure i'm not the only one to report this problem so i assume a fix will be out shortly.

updating for security is fine, but to update just for newness generally compromises my own preferences.

pls let me know when to expect a fix.

and your browse attach/file won't accept a .tiff file????

regards.

duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1177711

When Mozilla Fiefox upgraded a few days ,it stopped the "Add to Cart " Paypal buttons from working on my websites. www.rickysounds.co.uk and www.ricsrus.com. My customers have been emailing me and saying they have the same problem. trying to use the buttons generates a Paypal screen that says " THings don't appear to be working at the moment, Please try later.(tried to upload an image but it wont upload to this page.)

Google chrome and Safari work correctly so I reinstalled Mozilla Firefox 54 and this version works perfectly.

I tried to use my PC laptop and the latest FirefoxPC version has the same problems ,again IE on the laptop works perfectly.

I am losing business as a result of this problem so I would appreciate a fast resolution to the problem

This was asked in 2011, but the solutions are not compatible with the present 2017 version. I routinely Override the colors specified by the webpages going back and forth between "Only with High Contrast Themes" and "Always". I'd like to create either a custom hot-key (preferred) or a menu bar toggle button to go back and forth between these two choices. The option chosen needs to be compatible with the latest version of FireFox. Any suggestions?

Hi and hello!

I am on a Macbook Pro laptop from 2015

Whenever I attempt to view something off Netflix I keep getting error code F7121-3078 :(

Similarly, when I attempt to view Amazon Prime Video it says "We're experiencing a problem playing this video."

I followed instructions, I updated my mac itself to Catalina 10.15.3 and reinstalled Firefox so it should be 100% up to date.

still didn't work.

I read somewhere in this forum from a January post if I open Firefox in 32 bit mode after selecting command + i that it should work but I didn't have that option. I opted for the low resolution setting I saw and not only do the videos still not play but now it looks like I need glasses more than I really do :p I'll be changing that back asap.

What's the vibe check on this? Is there a resolution or a possible ETA of a resolution? Anything?

Any info would be grand!
