I recently got a new phone and having an issue where, for example, if I open a link on someones Instagram story, the link opens in Chrome instead of Firefox even though Firefox is my default browser. On my old phone I didn't have this issue. Actually, links opened in the app instead of browser and somehow I can't figure out the settings in this new phone to work similarly. How can I get everything to work with Firefox instead of Chrome?

I don't know what kind of changes have been done but lately I have 2 major issues and am ready to change Firefox as my default browser. I can not print properly without having to change my default settings each time I want to print something and even then sometimes my page will print correctly. The second issue is trying to search something. I will type in my search using google. It will show the topic of my search in the bar however when I hit enter I get a blank page. If I try to use another search engine it sometimes will show results. This happens inconsistently and most times I have to stop what I'm doing & use another browser to print or search. Very frustrating. I do not have this issue using chrome or edge but honestly Firefox is the browser I prefer .... UNTIL RECENTLY. Please do something to correct this as I have checked the community page and have seen others with similar issues.

Witam, Mam problem. Jak mam uruchomionego Outlook i działa synchronizacja maili bez problemu. W momencie gdy uruchamiam firefox przestaje działać synchronizacja( wysyłanie i odbieranie maili). Jeżeli uruchomię ponownie outlook przy działającym juz firefox to problem znika. Według Microsoft problemem jest Firefox:

"Nie wykluczone że moduł zmieniający połączenie VPN wbudowane w FF realizuje jakieś niestandardowe tunelowanie informacji, co przeszkadza w nawiązywaniu synchronizacji poczty tego akurat klienta poczty."

Powyżej informacja od Microsoftu.

problem ten pojawił się na kilku komputerach jakieś 3-4 tygodnie temu. Dopiero teraz powiązałem fakt co powoduje problem z outlook.

Hello,

It got really hard to debug with Firefox Developer Edition devtools when inspector tab keeps disappearing while debugger point is hit.

Using HTMLElement link from console doesn't return Inspector

Pressing F12 and F12 again helps, but then again have to reach the break point which is frustrating.

Firefox 101.0b5 (64-bit) Windows 10 Pro 21H2 Build 19044.1645 CPU - i5-1145g7 RAM - 16gb

Any way to solve this apart reinstalling Firefox ? As well why the same bug can stay 8 years? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/980988

Thank you for your help! I was not sure which topic this falls under. Seems Gmail is refusing to interface with my Thunderbird. I usually only put my computer to sleep, but last night it shut down many programs. One was Thunderbird and now I cannot send or receive e-mails from my gmail. I am putting the correct password in. Gmail sent me an alert that someone tried to log in to my account. Seems now they are refusing to let me connect to download and send e-mails? I have retried password several times. Thanks again for the assistance! I am very appreciative! I can still read your response in Gmail.

I wanted to print out an order placed online but could only print part of it.

The order took up about 1.5 pages when displayed in Firefox, but I could only print the upper 2/3 of it. That’s all the Print Preview displayed. It was cut off at the bottom. There was no option to print the missing lower third or a second page.

I can scroll Firefox to display the lower part but Print Preview still shows only the upper part.

I can change FF’s scale to 80% in order to show the whole order on the screen, but Print Preview still only shows the upper part.

I can scale Print Preview to 70%, but then it’s difficult to read.

I don’t recall having this problem with earlier versions of Firefox.

How can I print my order on 2 pages so that I can read it?

On clicking on shortcut got "You have launched an older version etc" I didn't know I had more than one! Find I cannot get Tb any other way than downloading fresh copy. Have now lost all of calendar, and Tb now has "calendar" listed on left side, but no calendar present. How to get? Would it be a good idea to have the calendar stored somewhere separately so it can't be lost this way??

Im trying to make a advanced theme. Im at the point where CSS Combinators are not going to work for what I want to accomplish. My next step is running a js script through tampermonkey on chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml However I cant run extensions on Chrome:// pages I know Google Chrome has a flag to do this and was wondering if Firefox has one too. I know this causes security issues but I want to do it anyway

I suggest you open it individually. Thank you. It's a function that doesn't exist locally.

And to give you another suggestion, I would like to be able to register the extensions manually for Applications. There are times when Firefox doesn't detect it. The user If there's a file called zip, I wish I could save the zip file and enter it. Manual input function.

My location information is registered at the bottom of the Google search. So I suggest.

I hope Firefox can block all location information. I don't want my location to be searched.

Thank you.

Like the title says the 3 finger gesture to move between full screen images doesn't work with firefox 100.0 Macbook pro 16" 2019 running catalina 10.15.7. What happens is that full screen is exited and browser moves back to the previous page.

Only had this problem after updating firefox.

I've seen conversations from as far back as 10 years ago where people have had this problem but their fixes don't work.

This should work without an add on plug in or app. It should simply work.

Done all the usual things restarted finder, restarted computer, checked all the setting in computer preferences. Tried other browsers and it works with both google and safari.

I switched to firefox and spent a lot of time organizing and setting up only to have this problem. This is a feature I use often (every day) so it is a deal breaker even with all the time I've invested in switching.

Does anyone have an answer for me? How do I get the 3 finger gesture back on my MacBook?

Since the recent Updates, I am having pronlems using Firefox and getting mail with Thunderbird. Firefox will open endless Tabs. After deleting about 5 or 6 of them, I can sometimes use one but just as often cannot use FF at all. Thunderbird refuses to OPEN! If after many trys, I can get Thunderbird open, I have trouble getting mail or, I get many of the same messages. It is a real fight to get any use out of Firefox and Thunderbird. If I knew how, I would revert to previous versions. I am using WINDOWS on a PC and have used both Firefox and Thunderbird for many years with never a problem until this recent update. bribling@yahoo.com
