I upgraded to Quantum 69.0 64 bit a day or two ago. Today I have discovered that when I go to print a web page from FF, it does not list my home network printer as a choice. I tested other apps, e.g. Chrome and MS Word and Adobe Rdr, they all still show my home network printer in their printer list, and I was able to print to it from Chrome. I have powercycled my printer, and rebooted my WIN7 PC, no help. My home network printer lists as Canon MF4270 Daves Office. My email is daveryan.cincinnati@gmail.com

The search bar that used to be in the center of the page has suddenly moved to the top of the page in all new tabs: https://i.imgur.com/2f5VZjv.png

This started around noon today, and was not preceded by any updates or changes to Firefox or any of my addons, so far that I'm aware of.

How do I return the search bar to the center of the page?

Hi! I'm using Firefox on my Mac. Last update. My problem is simple: when I close Firefox, it doesn't remember the last size of the window. So, for example, I normally use it on the full dimension of the screen (but not in full size: I'll post a picture to explain, because I'm not good with words hahah). Instead, when I relaunch it, it opens like in small size (I'll post a picture of that, too). Is there something that I can do? Thx.

Bug voting is open. Your help file says "Click on the "(vote)" link that appears on the right of the "Importance" fields." I do not know what an importance field is. The word "importance" does not appear on the page. The word "vote" does not appear either. THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS LINK ARE NOT FOR REGULAR USERS: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=voting.html

Where is the vote button??? Here is the page where I want to vote: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1581664

As a beginner, I see nothing at the end of this page to be notified if responded. If I dont' get notified, I probably wont be able to find my way back here. Why so difficult for non-power users?!?

The Dashlane website indicates that Dashlane Password Manager is compatible with Firefox Browser but I am unable to find it in the extension list. Without Dashlane Firefox is useless to me since I have used it for years in Chrome and do not wish to attempt to import that information into another extension. Anyone know why it is missing?

Hi,

I use Firefox as my default browser.

Whenever I click on a link in an email it opens a new Firefox window instead of opening a new tab on a Firefox window that is already open.

My preference is for it to open a new tab on an already open Firefox window.

I have looked in the settings / preferences and can’t seem to find where to make this change.

Please can you advise the process / steps for me to make this to happen.

This was first reported here original post and verified by Mchall and me.

The issue arises with the following steps

   find a cell with text (not formula)
   place the cursor in the edit line (formula bar)
   backspace to remove all of the text
   type in new text
   hit enter

A new line, char(10) is inserted after the text. Confirmed with a find function.

It did this with Firefox but not Chrome. Reported in Google sheets forum title "Why are line breaks being added to cells randomly" Can't see how to add link here.

I've been through my settings and Firefox does allow me to save login info for other websites. It just refuses to allow me to save my login for Zoom.us. I thought this might be a website issue but no because I am able to save my Zoom.us login info using other browsers.

So how do I get Firefox to function correctly?

Thanks.
