Messages from Firefox

The latest Dialogues & Debates from Mozilla breaks down how tech is instrumental in demanding racial justice, but also its history of amplifying racism.

Up until 2 days ago, accessing aol mail via Firefox worked fine, with attachments to emails easily downloaded. Now I click on the attachment icon in the email, and nothing happens.

If I use Microsoft Internet Explorer (not my first choice of Browser), I can download attachments. So my assumption is that this is a Firefox issue.

I am using Windows 10.

Thanks to anybody for their suggestions.

My wife likes to print certain crossword puzzles every day. We've discovered that some sites won't open in Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit). We can't find a setting that fixes this and would appreciate help.

Here are the links we use:

https://www.puzzlesociety.com/los-angeles-times-sunday-crossword

https://www.puzzlesociety.com/netword/2020/06/28

We can download these puzzles in Google Chrome but they don't print properly that way.

Thanks!

Since Firefox updated, regardless of search engine I use, I am redirected to a different search engine or a random website that wont load. Example, if I use Google to search something, it sends me to Bing as soon as I hit enter. Sometimes it will send me to a site called searchwise.com. I have checked add ons, plug ins, etc., there is nothing in my computer that explains this. This is beyond frustrating and I am about to remove Firefox permanently.

Chrome has a better printing feature than Firefox.

it's impossible to print shipping lable through Firefox, no matter how you set, it keep on sepate into two pages lable.

I have to switch into Chrome everytime I print shipping lables of my store orders.

I have screenshot to demonstrate the trouble caused by Firefox.

My question is why Firefox can't make the printing feature same like Chrome? if you can't make the same, how to print small lables(like 10cm by 15cm) though Firefox?

I have Macualar Degeneration so I use the Windows magnifier all the time. They have added a "Read from here" feature where you click where you want it to start reading and it should read the text. When I click the voice says, "Disabled." I have checked in Options the setting for "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" and it was unchecked. I tried checking that and it made no difference. I opened a text document and the feature worked fine. In Microsoft apps, it works fine. In an OpenOffice text document it says "Cannot read from here" - it must not be compatible with OpenOffice. The fact that it says "Disabled" in Firefox makes me think that there's a setting that can be changed to enable it. I have iCloud Bookmarks, Instagram Photo Plus, Video Download Helper, extensions active and AdBlock Plus and Facebook Container disabled. What can I do to enable Read From Here in Firefox?

Winding up with multiple instances of firefox and session restore only restores one

I'm finding that I'm winding up with multiple instances of firefox running. I don't mean multiple windows but multiple sessions of firefox itself where each one has however many windows/tabs that I may have open managed under each instance. As an example, right now on one of my machines, I see two different two different instances when I attempt to Send Tab To Device (see Groot in attachment). This has lead to me losing session data as it seems that only one instance is managed by the restore feature. I don't consider that only one instance being restored a bug but maybe devs think different; I'm not questioning the session restore feature operation here. What I'm asking here is how to merge multiple instances down to one so that sessions restore will recover all my windows/tabs. How do I figure out which windows/tabs are with which instance? How do I know which instance will be restored?

Possible Feature Request: I don't know if multiple instances being started is self inflicted or a by product of some firefox operation encountered during use; I've not deliberately started separate instances. What would be cool is a feature that only allows one instance to be running at a time. This feature could warn if there is already a managed instance running if another attempts to start and help to prevent future possible lose of session data.

Hi. I have just been updated to version 78.0.1 (64-bit) I have a large number of .lnk files that drive my work. As of this update, Firefox no longer opens these files, instead it forces me to download the link file, and then click on the downloaded link file to instatiate it. Of course, this means that I cannot open the link file in Private mode. This is cluttering up my download folder, forcing the web page referenced into non-private mode, and causing cascading problems from there. What is the setting that will allow me to click on my bookmarked .lnk files (which in most cases open .html web pages) and open directly. If I can't do this then I'll have to migrate away from Firefox, which I absolutely do not want to do.

Thank you. Cyril

Suddenly, all my passwords got deleted from Firefox last week, and when I went to check, I found that a new version of Firefox had just been installed on my windows 10 desktop. I got the passwords back, but not only do most of them still not work, but even when I sign in manually, they don't work, so I have to reset them for each site (and usually I can reset it to exactly the same password I have been using all along, which is strange by itself). The next time I go to that site, again my password doesn't work, so I open up Chrome and get in with no problem. Thus, it is not just the saving of my passwords that isn't working in Firefox, it is that these sites are not recognizing my correct passwords when I type them in manually on Firefox. Has this happened to anyone else had this problem, and is there a solution? I have used Firefox for years and love it, but I can't continue to use it if it takes me forever to get into all these websites. Thanks.
