I recently upgraded from a Dell XPS laptop to a Dell XPS Inspiron laptop and had my old laptop cloned to the new one. There's been only one change noted when using the new laptop -- whenever I have Firefox open, and want to print the page displayed, the File menu no longer offers the option "Print Preview", which I used all the time on my old laptop. Any idea why it's disappeared, and how to get it back? Thanks.

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

It appears that Firefox 87.0b3 version has removed the Library - Pocket List menu item. Yet, through the about:config options, has retained the ability to activate the 'Save to Pocket' address bar icon.

This makes no sense as there is now no option to have a 'Pocket List' item selection. At least I couldn't find an option for this. That is without adding another extension.

Having the 'Save' option without the 'List' option is counter intuitive.

The Library-->Pocket List Menu item should be restored.

Thanks.

Hi - The last 2-3 Mac OS versions of FF (85.0.2, 86.0) are not allowing me to open Firefox>Preferences from the Firefox menu, the dashboard icon, or using Command-,

I'm only able to open the Preferences window by typing about:preferences in the address bar. If I keep a Preferences tab available, I'm able to navigate to that window using the aforementioned methods.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Saved a Login for Username X on Domain abc.com

But there is also a login for same Username X on a sub/folder/url at domain abc/admin/login

If I try to edit the saved loging to manually add ww.abc.com/admin/ ( user / password ) it says the user name already exists.

I want the username/saved login to be tied to the login page not only the domain?

Burned By An Update To 86.0!

Hello,

Just updated after a long time from 66.0.5 -> 72.0.2 -> 86.0. This is what FF wanted to do for some unexplained reason so I just let it.

Now when I open a new tab in an open window I get a white screen and nothing works. Entering a URL in the bar or pressing any of the buttons like home does nothing whatsoever. Just a blank white screen.

This is why I LOATHE updating anything! The odds of breaking something that was working perfectly is VERY high. Proved the point once again. I used to let FF update itself and then got burned by the Quantum update that trashed ALL of my open session windows. Turned auto-update OFF after that so that could manually grab and save a copy of the profile BEFORE any update happens.

So how do I fix this or is it a legitimate BUG that should be reported (and how to do same)?

Thanks, Steve

Today i turned on firefox running the latest ubuntu platform and had colored squares and dots all over the web pages. If I move the mouse or type the squares colored black, blue, aqua and green move with the mouse or typing all over the display like snow. I have gone over the troubleshooting steps, I have uninstalled and reloaded mozilla firefox. The only way I can stop this is to go to safe mode. I have downloaded two other browsers today and do not have this problem with the other two browsers, or with any of the software programs on the computer. Any ideas?

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

I find it really bad, if i post a bug and you just archive without even try to fix the problem! It makes me extremely angry! Bad behavior!

Please stop that and re-open the case.

Jan Ps. same system (Lenovo Thinkpad X300 with Xubuntu 16.04LTS 64bit (account A) )now running Firefox 85.0.1 64bit can now print, I can't find any mentioning in release notes to how previous version 75.0 and now this one is different and why this one now can print.

It would be nice to get this solved, since other people here has had this one too and it seems to jump between versions and OS(linux an windows).

I am afraid that I am very confused about the changes to this site. Are the FAQs the only way to learn about the changes, or is there some documentation I am not presently seeing?

In addition, what happened to my older account on this site?

And where exactly are all the other posts, like I would expect to be seeing as if it were a regular forum platform?

Maybe I am more than confused. Maybe I am completely lost. Yes, my own stupidity might be a major factor for this confusion I am guilty of!
