The answers I found on the internet re firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting do not apply to my version of Firefox . There is no ADVANCED under Options/General.

When I get firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting, the ALLOW often does not work.

How can I get rid of this feature?

As I have a bunch of tabs open, whenever I restart my computer I don't wish to lose all my tabs. Yet every time I restart, I am unable to restore the tabs/windows that were previously open and I have to resort to searching through my history. Is this a bug with Firefox?

All the other "solutions" I've seen don't restore what has already been closed, but they are more preventative measures for the future. It should work the same way Chrome does. I haven't changed any default settings either and I wasn't browsing in private.

Ever since evolving past the 70's version, "Print to PDF" from Firefox has had sporadic problems. I have now three times "upgraded" to various 80's series releases and though sometimes Print to PDF works, it more often fails. Once again i have "downgraded" to a 70's release, and i do not experience flaws.

I have posted at least twice of the issue, yet no one is able, or has done anything, about it. Fine. But to keep getting that annoying "New version available" notification is as irritating as malware, especially since "upgrading" will cause the system to malfunction, and the choice to spend time by your programmers to eliminate a safe internal method to disable this is very confusing; why was the decision made to eliminate the option to turn that annoyance off, creating an annoyance when the only time one would turn upgrades off would be when there was a malfunction with a release?

I did find the external registry fix, which, compared to pre early 60's releases having the setting, was a waste of my time to find, but more importantly, added an outside element of a breach of security. I do not understand the reasoning in the development team's thought process.

A few pages have scrambled printer fonts, not all. Tried troubleshooting with Reset Firefox printer setting and Reset all Firefox printer settings not even thinking about a refresh!

How to I clear the parameters that determine how the printer fonts are controlled. Seems like something is corrupted. Does not scramble most pages. Simplify Pages prints the same page correctly. Same pages print fine in Edge. document attached on how firefox prints the page and how edge prints the same page. Can't be the printer driver.

I know I can Right-Click and choose from the pop-up menu to do it, but I keep forgetting.

Hello

Don't know if you can help with this problem: this week reCAPTCHA on sites where I need to find out when deliveries are expected keeps on and on asking me to verify squares with traffic lights, buses etc. etc. I use Firefox but have also tried with Safari and Edge problem is just the same. It seems to me that the makers of reCAPTCHA should be told to sort out their program as it is affecting a number of browsers. Could Mozilla/Firefox do this perhaps? Meanwhile, if I'm wrong about this and if anybody has a workaround please can you let me know.

With many thanks.

I cannot post any comment on Youtube on Mozilla Firefox. I can on Chrome and Edge. I use some add-ons (Screenshot below) but I'm pretty sure they don't interfere with it. I might have switched a parameter of Mozilla or I am blind and I cannot see where I should click to post a new comment on Youtube. I've put another screenshot of the comment section in which you can clearly see there is no option visible to post a new comment under a video..

Any idea or recommendation ?

Have a nice day tho.

Most of the time it is when I am using Facebook and have more than one tab open.

At the moment it's a waste of time having tabs as options because I can't use more than one at a time or else every single page comes up with this error... a web page is slowing down your browser

Does anyone have any bright ideas on how to get it to stop - I have search the net and changed and tweaked a few settings but nothing has made any difference at all.

When I attempt to login to a captcha protected account it won't stop with the verification. I have to answer the captcha picture puzzle 30 or more times. After this occurred on several different sites I finally tried Google. The captcha worked the first or second time.

What gives with this? I dislike using Google, but FF may leave me no choice.
