Question for community. Here in Seattle KOMO is the local ABC affiliate. Since the last Firefox upgrade videos like the one I am offerring here from their site will not load and I end up having to go to another browser. Even in safe mode videos will not load? Any thoughts?

When I want to save a newspaper article as a PDF file in Firefox, Firefox asks if I want to open it with Firefox. It's good. I then also save this file in a folder on the PC. Then I want to print this file too. With several pages as two sides, as a duplex print. For a few days now, the backs of the print, i.e. the even sides, have no longer been printed in advance, but instead are printed upside down. As it seems to be happening in the USA. In the USA, pages are not stapled on the side, but on the top. This is not good. Please change it so that it can be stapled on the page and then read like a book. Not always having to turn it upside down! Thank you, that is very important in Germany! Günther Grau

in one of the recent previous versions it was possible to print the webpage e.g. to pdf. when there was a lot of other info/characters on the preview, you could choose to simplify the page and a lot of text over text was gone, now it that not possible anymore; print web pages is gobbled up to that the basic web text is not readable anymore. Would it be possible to get this 'simplify page' back on the new print window? I have not a screenshot with that option to show, sorry for that. Thank you in advance. Theo

Print Preview 86.0 too small to see. Also other print features now very difficult

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

I did a system restore because I thought an update had messed up some things, specifically I could not sign in to a site I use regularly because I would get a black screen and a message stating that "Northern Tool" is not currently available in your country. I had been using a vpn but it was set for a U.S. city and both I and the website are in the U.S. also. After system restore for a time only 2 days prior, my Firefox was apparently removed from my computer and all history of it. Now I am having trouble re-installing and using sync to get back my saved stuff. This is all on another PC with Windows 7.

I am trying to print from a web page, and the print pop up screen changed to something weird today. This pop up screen is completely useless as it will either print gigantic or microscopic regardless of the settings. Is there a method for going back to what actually worked?

Firefox updated on my work machine concurrent to a machine self-restart and VPN update. The VPN update bricked my access to shared drives for my work network so I assumed the issue lie somewhere with lack of internet access and inability to connect to said network. Now the VPN is up and running with normal file access restored, but all my FireFox info is gone. I see on my desktop a file called Old FireFox data and begin googling the recovery process. I generated a new profile in FireFox and copied over all files from the old profile to the new including key4.db and logins.json to no avail.

There are no passwords, no login info, no cookies, no bookmarks, nothing is left. Also, I cannot copy any of these files. I can only move them for some reason. I've tried to back up these files, but they are move-only somehow.

Any advice?

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

I recently bought a new mac mini. it is running os 11.12.1 and is the new mac M1 chip. I downloaded the latest version of firefox, 85.0.2 It seems to work great..... but after a few days i have noticed that when i first wake up the computer in the morning AND after i wake it up after it's gone to sleep during the day the browser doesn't work correctly. Trackpad won't scroll. Typing won't type. Clicking on a tab dosen't open the tab..... UNTIL i click on another window of the browser, then when i go back to the first window it has opened the tab i clicked on. Very odd. If i quit firefox and open it again it works. But this is not ideal.

Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone have a solution??

Thanks, Miranda

Hello,

recently I moved a website to the "Block Popups from this site" list.

Now I only have the option to generally block all pop-ups or to allow them in general.

Is there any way to get that yellow bar back, telling me, that something has blocked and allows me to select which Popup is to be allowed and which is declined?

Thank you!

A white bar completely covers the top of the browser. It is if the menu bar has disappeared. If I try and click where the menu bar should be I click right through the window to the other open applications below.

This has happened a few times and the only way to remedy it is to reboot the machine.

Image attached.

Any idea what is happening?

I am running firefox on windows 10 Version 84.0.2 (64-bit) (latest available)
