Preview is opened as default when printing. I prefer to use the system printing. How can I discard Preview? The printing task now takes more than a minute to access the printer. It all started since Preview was introduced as default! Meanwhile Firefox i locked and I can't do anything in Firefox.

Firefox 88 - very slow to create print preview

When I try to print from Firefox 88 on my Mac Laptop running OSX 10.12.6 the new print preview window takes a very long time to load the preview before I can print. I could not find a work around.

I tried switching to the Classic print system via (print.tab_modal.enabled - False) Now I don't have the preview to deal with so I can print immediately like I used to. However, if I try to open a PDF in Preview from the Print Dialog window, it takes a very long time to load the preview which it did not do in earlier versions of Firefox.

I am surmising that one of the Firefox updates added the print preview function which doesn't work quite right on my Mac.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Andy

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

I'm not sure if this problem arose with the latest Firefox upgrade (I'm running MacOS 10.14.6 on an older MacbookPro) or has just appeared after a few days of use -- I think it's the latter. But I can no longer rearrange the sequence of tabs in a window, an absolutely essential feature. There's a contextual menu choice that gives me the option of moving a tab to the beginning, end or a new window, but that only helps in ~10% of situations. What gives??

The same extension is showing up for FF version 93.0 on windows.

Any clue on what could be the issue and how to fix it?

Hi, a few days ago after updating my IMAC, FireFox stopped recording browsing history. And I cannot access history anymore. Could you please help me to fix this problem as I have many important sites that I need to access. I have been using Firefox many years and never had this problem so I trusted my links were safe but now I lost them.

How do I make Firefox ignore the use-application-dns.net and always use my DNS server?

Hello!

I've set up an AdGuard Home server in my network. It provides the DNS-over-HTTPS service, I added it to my Firefox Network Settings configuration as https://adguard.example.com/dns-query and my machine has adguard.example.com in its /etc/hosts file.

The upstream AdGuard DNS server is my home router, which has several static DNS entries added for hosts in my network, e.g. foo.example.com pointing to 10.0.0.100.

During regular use, the domains resolve properly - when I navigate to http://foo.example.com everything works OK.

However when my machine is connected to VPN, the browser is unable to connect to http://foo.example.com, but it is still able to reach: http://10.0.0.100, regular internet as well as https://adguard.exaple.com (which is obtained from /etc/hosts).

This is on MacOS, using openconnect as a VPN client (and of course, the VPN connection changes the host DNS servers, this is what I'm trying to circumvent with Firefox' DoH feature).

I noticed one thing: with VPN, the use-application-dns.net resolves to something, without VPN it does not. I found this article, which mentions: "When any of these checks indicates a potential issue, Firefox will disable DoH for the remainder of the network session, unless the user has enabled the “DoH always” preference as mentioned above."

I have DoH explicitly enabled, the network.trr.mode is set to 2 (tried 3 as well, did not help). There's no such option as "DoH always" in the settings!

How do I make Firefox ignore the use-application-dns.net and always use my DNS server?

What is the last Firefox version that works with MAC Lion OS X 10.7.5?

I have a study program of that vintage that plugs into firefox and the version on the computer now is 3.0.10 (from year 2009 and the program does not work with it.

The program is compatible with Lion OS X 10.7.5 but the Firefox version is too old.

The version 3.0.10 on the computer does not work well with most sites or crashes. The intent is not to expect to browse, just be new enough for this program for its dedicated use.

All of a sudden I'm getting the Yahoo maiil ID changed to Google Mail with out any authorisation on my part ? I know Google owns Yahoo. I use Yahoo mail all the time and Yahoo is my ID for many applications so why has this happened ? If something like this can change unknowns to me does this mean that Google has control of my MAC and FireFox and its content .??

I am having trouble accessing a site that doesn't support https. For the longest time, I could access it just fine through http, but now, for some reason, it redirects to https, no matter what I do, which just gives me a cloudflare error.

I can access it in other browsers by just editing the address to http://xyz.com rather than https://xyz.com.

I'm aware others have encountered this issue, but the proposed solutions do not work for me at all.

I've tried: -Clearing my site security preferences file. -"Forgetting" the site through my history. -Disabling my addons -Disabling 'network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist' and 'browser.fixup.fallback-to-https' in my about:config. -Ensuring that https only mode is not on.

A Refresh DID fix it... only for it to break again pretty much immediately after I reloaded the site.

This is exceptionally annoying, as I have my Firefox configured how I want it, and I don't want to swap to another browser. Any solutions?
