Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

While I appreciate the recent improvements to the Firefox Print interface and features, there are still lingering formatting issues that have existed for a very long time. The most common issue is that portions of content get cut off between pages. Here is one example:

https://www.nolas.com/home/#menus - click FOOD category near top - open Print (does not matter if "Save to PDF" or printer is selected) - default print settings

In the print preview (left side), printed page or saved PDF there are missing parts of text: - beginning of page 4 cuts off from "SHARE PLATES" to half-way through the first item's description. - top of page 8 (under "NOLA CLASSICS") one of the 6 items is missing entirely.

This issue remains even when using different scale factors.

Tested on current software: - Firefox 86.0.1 (new profile) - macOS 10.12 -through- 10.15

A few days ago Microsoft Print to PDF stopped working properly in Firefox 87.0 (64 bit) running in Windows 10. Microsoft Print to PDF functions properly in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Excel/Word/Outlook, etc.

As attached, in Firefox after pressing CTL-P (or select File>Print) the print preview window is displayed. When I click Print a PDF file is created. When I open that file I receive the attached error message advising that the file cannot be opened, etc.

I have executed many of the recommended solutions; none of resolved the issue. I refreshed Firefox; that did not resolve the issue. I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folder in APPDATA rebooted and reinstalled Firefox; that did not resolve the issue.

No recent software installations or upgrades, etc.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations, Bill

Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

Thunderbird 78.9.0 installed, but it happened also with some previous release (I don't remember the last one, but I install always when the announce for a new release arrives). Five different tests sending a mail to myself. Test 1: from Thunderbird I write a text (meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr), I select it and then I click on "Insert" and after on "Link", I copy the same txt as link to be connected. I receive a mail with only "meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr" as plain text, not colored Test 2: again from Thunderbird, without writing any text, I select "Insert" and then "Link" and then I insert the same text (meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr) as text and as link. I recevie a mail with "meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr <meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr>" Test 3: I write a mail from gmail web inserting the same text and link as above: I receive a correct mai with an operating link. Test 4 and 5, as test 1 and 2, but as text ai write a word, not the link itself. In both cases I receive a mail with the word colored and clicking with the right button I can copy the link, but there is not the open link choice. Thanks. Claudio

Firefox 8.6.0 upgrade disables Firefox browser I utilized "System Restore" through the process of elimination I determined that it is the 8.6.0 upgrade that is causing the problem. So, turned off the automatic upgrade option and installed any Windows 8.1 upgrades and my Firefox is working great. Now I have a "nag" screen that is constantly trying to upgrade Firefox browser might there be some way to disable this upgrade notice?

The Add to home screen button is not showing up in firefox mobile v87.0.0-rc.1 (Build #2015799099).

For the purpouse of this ticket, I'll be using the example a2hs website at https://mdn.github.io/pwa-examples/a2hs/ https://mdn.github.io/pwa-examples/a2hs/.

When opening the website in Chrome mobile, it has the option to Install the PWA as an application (picture 1), but in firefox there is no such option (picture 2). Also, the official guide suggests that there should be a "home icon with a +", which is not the case for me (picture 3).

The firefox application has permission to add homescreen shortcuts in the system (picture 4).

When connecting to debug via USB, I can see the serviceworker is running and the manifest was recognized (picture 5).

I've also tried reinstalling the mobile browser and removing all addons, to no effect.

I'm running Android 10 on a Poco X3 using MIUI 12.0.7.

I don't know else I may be missing.

best, Roberto.

FF profile choice problem on Linux Mint with Claws email

I have three FF profiles on my Linux Mint 19.3 system (work, not-work and one for e-tail). Somehow the problem only appeared after I added that last one. All profiles have the same syntax; I checked the files. Neither one is set to be the dominant one. Typically, I don't use more than one at a time.

I also use Claws mail. Whenever I get any mail with a link I want to check out, I just used to click on that link and it opened in a new tab in the FF browser profile that was currently open. Similarly, whenever I wanted to see the HTML version of a mail, I right-clicked on the html-icon and chose open. Again, it picked the open browser.

Now, though, whenever I pick either one of those options above, I get the "Choose User Profile" box. If I pick the profile that is currently open, I get an error telling me that it's already running.

Since I mostly read email when I use the no-work FF profile, I tried to add "firefox -P NotWork -no-remote --class NotWorkProfile" but that also resulted in the choose user profile box to open.

My current work-around is to copy the link and open it in a new tab, or pull the whole mail into the tab to see the HTML version. Quite annoying.

Is there any way to get it to ignore all other profiles but the currently open one? Thank you for anyone who has an idea. Let me know if there's anything else I may add to explain the situation.

[My apologies if this isn't the right forum; I'm also attempting to ask this question in the Linux Mint and Claws forums, if those exist.]

Showing all passwords in a list view as it was in the old password manager was really helpful. I tried to install this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3062276

But unfortunately with the newest Firefox 84 it is not working anymore. I get an error message.

Is there any other possibility to reactivate the old password manager? There are countless of people and threads on the internet wanting this feature back. Mozilla made a step backwards here unfortunately.

Thank you for your help!

I use keyword for search engines extensively and this is very very annoying!

How do I make it go away.

I use Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Mac os x Catalina 10.15.6
