When I launch Firefox, it refuses to open My Yahoo, which is the home page I have been using for many years. My.yahoo.com is still entered in Settings as my home page. Even if I type the URL into a new tab, it will not load. I have now switched to Edge as my default browser and it is working just fine. I would like to go back to Firefox, but there is no way I can do that if it wont even let my use my preferred home page. This is the second time I have presented this problem. So far - no response. I can be reached at ... @yahoo.com.

My switch from the release version to ESR seemed to go well, but my history and many of my settings and data, including my pinned tabs and extensive notes used by add-ons, were gone. I managed to reconstruct most of them, but was distressed to find that when Fx updated my ESR version those settings were again gone.

I have again restored most of the lost settings (including the one not to automatically update!) but I know I can't defer Fx updates indefinitely, and I also expect I may want to return at some point to the release version--and I desperately don't want to have to reconstruct my settings any more (or at least more than one last time). I'm not concerned about the loss of my history

Since I'm prepared to note all my settings first, starting fresh seems like a viable solution. I just need to know how (unless you can suggest a better option). I'd be happy with either the release or ESR channel.

Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

Hi,

I had been using this addon: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../video-speed-control/] and I had no problems with it, until today when I went to increase the speed of a video I was watching, and it wouldn't work no matter what. Clicking to increase the video speed doesn't make the video go faster, as it should.

I uninstalled it and installed many other video speed controller addons, one by one, but none of them work at all either!

The video speed control had been working perfectly well up until now, and I hadn't modified any settings or anything else, that might cause it to stop working.

So how can I get this video speed control addon: [|https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-speed-control/] to work for me again? Help! I don't want to switch web browsers.

Thank you very much for your time and help, I really appreciate it!

I've been using site https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite for years to log in to AOL email for years and now, with Firefox v90, it takes over 2 minutes to load. It takes only a couple seconds with the Edge browser. I've tried troubleshooting mode, a refresh and a complete re-installation without any improvement. This never happened in previous versions of Firefox.

Any help is appreciated, Gary S.

It seems that after the last update, 7/19/2021, PayPal generated packing lists only print the left 2/3 of the packing list image. The right 1/3 is completely blank. The Address line on the top of the page and the cut here line on the bottom both print properly across the page.

Is this due to the latest update, perhaps a glitch? All the settings are set the same way as before the update.

All troubleshooting failed to fix this issue. The packing list prints properly in Msoft Edge.

The last Firefox update has messed with my printer settings and the entire page (width) doesn't print on 1 page anymore. It completely cuts it off and doesn't print it. This happens in multiple programs when I print so it seems like it has to be Firefox and not any of the multiple programs. I've looked at the FF settings but nothing is jumping out at me as needing to be adjusted. Any help is appreciated. Thx

When I try and print a page - say a receipt from an Amazon purchase, or a medical bill, or anything else!!! - firefox will not print the $$s on the right side of the page. It doesn't matter - when I select print - if I go to 70% (which i normally use) of if I go to 60% or 50%, the page prints, but the right side with the actual cost amount is missing. The full page DOES show in the print preview, but NOT on the printed page. Please help. I DO NOT like the new print window...may decide to - after many years - abandon Mozilla and Firefox. Lousy change several months ago in the Firefox print window and selection/option screen. It is REALLY aggravating and I, for one, do NOT like it. Please help me print the whole damned page. Thanks for the attention and a quick response. V/r, Dennis BTW, Win 10 Home, on a fast gaming desktop (works well), using Cox Communications as my cable provider for internet.

Hello Community, Upon updating Firefox today, some sites are cutting off the majority of the page and printing in the top-left corner. I've tried the following and none have helped:

Close and reopen Firefox Refresh Firefox Uninstall and reinstall Firefox Restart my computer Print from the system dialog Print from the Firefox dialog Cleared all add-ons Print from a different computer with a different FF account Print to a different printer Print to PDF

I've attached the PDF (after converting to JPG as required by this page) which was printed through Firefox which shows the issue. The same page prints normally in Edge and Chrome. I printed the same page yesterday without issue and when I did the test from another computer with a different FF account, it printed normally, the browser updated and had the problem so it's definitely something with the most recent FF update.

This may seem minor in scope since it only effects certain sites but it's a huge problem for me as I print quite a few pages from this site daily for order processing. Thank you to anyone who can help!

In Firefox 90.0.1 (64bit) Windows 10, the text in certain web pages, include the main news page of bbc.com has become completely invisible (no width but they are there).

I have disabled all extensions but the problem is still there. I have also tried turning off graphics acceleration but the problem still persisted.

However, if I start Firefox in Safe Mode then the problem goes away. How should I pin point the cause of the issue?
