When I display a page with text it is really bad in firefox but not any other browser that I have. This just seems to have happened. I am on Windows10. Sometimes when the page loads the text is great, but only for a second and then goes bad - I think the term is pixily?

I've been an avid user of Firefox Monitor for the past few months, but recently over the last few days when I go to https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard and log in, I've been struggling to find the button that allows me to add new email addresses. I've searched the support article for Monitor for this information, but to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-monitor. So I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction?

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?

Currently, I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Fedora 31. Recently, it's started opening most, but not all links in a new window instead of the current one. Not on all sites, but most. As a pair of examples, it opens links to articles on gasbuddy.com in a new window but not on Slashdot, and until a few months ago, it only opened a new window if I right-clicked and selected New Window from the context menu. I'd like to get the old behavior back, as this is quite inconvenient.

I noticed when I try to click on a link to print something the printing dialogue will be kind of out of focus (hidden) so I can't do anything but press ESC to get out of it. When I scale the Firefox window to a smaller size it works as intended. On my 2560x1440 screen it works in all window sizes. Only on my 3840x2160 screen this happens when the window is maximized. Would be nice if somebody could fix this! Thank you! Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Win 10.

When I highlight specific text in the pdf viewer in Firefox for Windows and copy it the wrong part gets copied instead of the highlighted text. I copy the text 2 lines under the highlight. I have the problem only with specific pdf, for example with an ISO from breuth. When I use Adobe Acrobat, I don't have the problem. Maybe it is a software bug?

Right click on 'Other Bookmarks' gives inactive 'Cat' and 'Delete' options. How to solve that uncomfortable placing of the 'Other Bookmarks' so the place of the 'show more bookmarks' 2 arrows mark will get back to the right side on the browser ? Thanks in advance

I want to use HTTPS-Only mode, but Firefox enforces it on my private network as well as the public network. Because I do not have certificates for any of my private network hosts HTTPS-Only mode blocks all internal network traffic. The suggested temporary workaround is impractical. Is there a way for Firefox to check the hosts file for a local name/ip or is there another fix for this?

I normally choose my download location and if they're zip I'll delete them after extract.

The problem is currently I can't find any way to get where did I put my downloaded files if it's not there.

BUT!!! In order to know the files aren't there, Firefox has to know where did I put them.

I searched the home folder but nothing named `download` is in the folder.

I asked a question for what should I do https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1312757 but doesn't get anything remotely useful.
