Shrink-to-fit for printing does not work in Firefox 82.0.2

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

Previously I used: browser.urlbar.maxRichResults, but that doesn't seem to do anything after this recent update. I have to visit a lot of different sites for my job and a longer list in the address bar drop down makes that happen very quickly. Being limited to only 7 is going to severely cut down on my efficiency.

If I upload a file for an email attachment, google drive upload, etc when I first select "browse" for the file it opens File Explorer in the Desktop directory.

How do I change that to default to the directory I always work from, say for example C:\tmp.

I've seen numerous questions about this with answers that it opens the last directory used, which is true if I do it multiple times, but if I close Firefox and restart it, when I select "browse" it again defaults to the Desktop.

I've also seen answers saying it is controlled by the site being uploaded true. Again this is absolutely not true. I do everything from C:\tmp. Downloads, uploads, editing, searching, etc. And every time I upload a file after starting Firefox fresh after a reboot, again, it defaults to the Desktop even though I'm on the same site (gmail) I was when I last uploaded a file.

As far as the answers saying that was the last directory used, that is false. I do not use the desktop for anything. Not storing icons, not downloading files, not uploading files. I have never uploaded a file from Desktop in my life.

So can anyone answer this without saying 'last directory used' or 'controlled by the website'?

Hello,

I installed a proxy on Firefox. On the website facebook.com when I click on a button that open a new firefox window to connect my instagram account to my facebook page, it opens a white page with "about:blank" URL instead of the instagram registration page. What does it mean and what am I supposed to do to solve it?

Thank you.

Hello,

Our requirement is as below-

We have our client application which is chrome compatible application. As a integration process, we merged 4 sub component / applications in our existing client application. We now allowed users to connect these applications from chrome based client application by clicking on its Dashboard Icon. Once clicked, new chrome tab is getting opened and users can access that application.

The Problem here is - two of the applications were Firefox compatible applications due to which its UI appearance is not upto the mark in Chrome.

Could you please provide solution so that we can open those sub applications in new Firefox browser (from chrome browser)? We had checked firefox extension (add on) but its not useful as this will only open or convert current url in firefox browser.

Thanks .

Best regards, Anuprita Thakur.

Long time bug and annoyance for me. Firefox is my default browser for 10+ years.

When concentrating on reading a page, and slowly scrolling at the same time, the mouse cursor can drift off the scrollbar even though I have the mouse button held down. It is because I am focused on the page, the mouse can lose perfect vertical sliding action, so the cursor drifts into the page. Soon it can no longer hang on to the scrollbar and the page jumps back to the top.

Is there any fix that can stop this from happening ? The mouse cursor should stay on the scrollbar as long as I have the mouse button held down.

Reproduce: I enabled Arabic as default language for Firefox in MacOS.

Issue: Now, I have a mixture or Digits format between Arabic Numbers & Hindu-Arabic Numbers. As you can see even with Firefox version from About window: 81.0.2 ‏(٦٤ بتة)

and Developer Tools too, see attached screenshot.

Note for Translators, Arab Countries don't use same digits formats.

- Eastern Arab countries are using Hindu-Arabic Numbers (٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩) - Western Arab countries are using the Arabic Numbers (0123456789 which are universal in this era)

References:

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_numerals - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Arabic_numerals

Workaround: I switch back to English when needed. And usually keep another browser for development.

How It should be: I am from Algeria (a Western Arabic country) & an developer (hobby). I expect to set Arabic language with Arabic Numbers format (and It is already set in MacOS preferences)

Possible Correction: - Split Arabic Language locale into 2 (East & West) or Have a special settings for locale formats - I thing most programmer are using dev tool in English even Firefox in mother language. Not sure how to fix this. It is similar to CLI that are not translated to cursive and RTL scripts.

YouTube works in all other browsers. I have restarted Firefox, uninstalled it and reinstalled fresh, nothing seems to work. Disabling addons does nothing. When I go to watch a video, I press the play button, the video loads sluggishly, and when loading is finished, before the video starts, I get "An error occured. Please try again later. (Playback ID: _______)". Vimeo works fine, but some news sites have the same issue. I have also tried just signing out of YouTube, and that does not work either.

I downloaded my browsers from the developer sites. I have two Firefox icons on my workspace - one on the desktop and one in the taskbar. Although they appear to be the same icon, they each open two different versions of the Firefox browser. The desktop icon opens the 32-bit and the taskbar opens the 64-bit. I don't like the consistent overriding of my preferences when I open the 32-bit version I often open the browser to find my bookmark toolbar has been deleted. Over and over. Recovering my bookmarks bar is time-consuming and tiresome The 64-bit version has been consistent. I wanted to create a 64-bit desktop icon and have not found a way to do it. When I try to create a desktop shortcut for the 64bit Firefox (it only appears on the taskbar), I have mysteriously got Opera icons for each try. When I create a desktop shortcut from the open home page in the Firefox browser, the shortcut appears with the Startpage or the Opera icon. I learned that icons have their own folders.... so I found and opened one for Mozilla Firefox -but the folder has only three Opera icons and one Startpage icon. I have no idea how the taskbar 64-bit icon has kept its original Firefox appearance from the original install, nor how the 32-bit icon in the desktop has also maintained its appearance. I cannot find any other icon folders in any of the other Mozilla folders. Any suggestions short of starting over with uninstalling the lot and reinstalling?
