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.

After the last update strange problem occours: when I print a web page in a normal A4 format, the printer prints a very little page, as a stamp, like an A8 format. I already tried to reset the printer settings in Firefox, but the same problem persists. What could be this strange inconvenience?

With Firefox 86.0.

In the preference page (about:preferences) we can specify default fonts, but the choices of fonts are not used when printing a web page if the page does not specify a font. (In my environment, although the default font is set to sans-serif, the serif font is used for printed pages.) Can we specify default fonts for printing? If not, I strongly think that Firefox should use the same font as the one for display (as long as the font is available for printing).

I cannot seem to retrieve any of my Firefox data. My bookmarks, plugins, login and password data are just gone. Years of data are gone. There is no "old profile data" and oddly enough none of the profiles have anything in them anyways. I have tried everything suggested and NOTHING has worked. Most people have no clue about the files and folders and definitely shouldn't be moving stuff around as most of the threads have suggested. What is a key3 or 4 file? Why should I have to move it? Where does one move it to? None of the threads on this topic are helpful and there's no way to just ask a person who works here? Considering this seems to happen to a lot of people it should be made much easier to do. I can't even import my old logins from Safari. Is years of my data just gone? If Im signed into my Firefox account shouldn't it be there, or what is the point of having one? I need a very easy solution to this extremely frustrating issue.

I just tried to print a list for the browser on Firefox and the new print options are useless. I use to be able to simplify, change background and have more options. This looks like the printing options on Microsoft Edge. I started using Firefox to get away from that. I mean if your going to mimic edge then why not use that browser instead??? Stop changing things. You update every 5 minutes and then it crashes, is to slow or just doesn't work. Slow the hell down and remember people like Firefox because it isn't like the big companies out there. It's a good browser. Leave it alone.

Menus do not appear, or are not clickable. tick boxes cannot be ticked, graphics are broken, logos do not appear correctly. I deleted and re-installed. restarted and nothing works....not a virus issue and have not done any update. I'm attaching a menu where the graphics (text boxes are gone), the amazon home page where the name on the logo is missing and a search engine bar that looks broken. Photos that are supposed to be cropped do not appear cropped anymore...etc. I'm trying to click on the box further down that allows me to be notified when someone answers the thread and cannot tick the box.

Yesterday Firefox, which I've used for years, suggested that I refresh. So I did. It created an "Old Firefox Data" folder. The newly refreshed Firefox had none of my bookmarks, etc., so I tried to add them by calling up the site and pressing Control+D, clicking on the star, etc. Nothing worked. Then I tried to add "Top Sites" to the opening page of the browser, putting in the name and URL. That didn't work either. Then I went to look at the suggestions on the Mozilla site as to what to do, either to allow the current version of Firefox to accept Top Sites & Bookmarks, or to reinsert the Old Firefox Data. I found the relevant pages but could make no sense of them. The recommendations are infinitely beyond my computer capacities, but even the simplest suggestions, like 'open the Old Firefox Data folder, highlight the items contained therein, right click, and press Copy' were unhelpful, since when I right-clicked, the menu that came up didn't include "Copy." Should I uninstall Firefox and download anew? I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox of approximately the same vintage. (Alas) I am also of a generation that remembers when electric typewriters were the big new thing, so I'm going to need very very simple instructions. . . . Many thanks, DKS

Hi, I can't play any videos with Firefox browser (facebook, youtube, email attachments..). I can play all these videos using other browsers (microsoft edge, chrome..) on the same laptop (Windows 10). I have tried several 'solutions' on the Firefox help forum such as deleting cookies, history etc but running out of patience and thinking of switching default browser. Any easy solutions would be appreciated.

I am writing an extension based on NewTab Override. I would like to know if there is a way to set the browser address bar to have no text when focused, and if so how to do that. So far I am using the code from NewTab Override that does: ``` browser.tabs.update(tabId, { url : url, loadReplace : true }, () => {}); ``` But I don't know any function or property to set for the address bar. I looked in the developer page for Mozilla Firefox but couldn't find anything.

So I love Firefox but recently have a serious issue. my homepage is google.com. it goes there but when i type in my search it redirects to yahoo. I looked up the problem on my phone and it gave me instructions to go into the firefox add-ons and delete the add-ons. However when i click add on it doesn't come up. I cannot get into my add ons. To sum it up, my google is redirected to yahoo even though my default search engine is google, and i cannot get into my add-on tab to delete a possible malicious add-on.

Do you really want to use HTML Gmail?

You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers. To get all of Gmail's features, including inbox categories, images and quick actions, please use the latest version of Gmail (recommended).

Take me to latest Gmail

I know that flag emojis are basically not rendered on Windows platforms. A two-letter-combination is shown instead (e.g. DE for Germany), which is a known issue. Since a few months however, Firefox started to show flag emojis. I assumed that Firefox itself did show the flag emoji independently from Windows (as opposed to Chrome, which never did show flag emojis on Windows). Since a few days however, Firefox stopped showing flag emojis and shows the two-letter-combination again.

Why does Firefox not show flag emojis anymore?

hi, I am using telerik reporting for reporting purposes on in my angular project. I have created two reports, one of them is in portrait mode and other is in landscape mode. Now , when I press print button , and print preview opens up, it is defaulted to portrait mode even if the report that I am printing is designed in landscape mode.

It can be seen in the following pictures. https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-03-01-07-48-32-b4df57.png https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-03-01-07-50-12-54a6d9.png

This might create confusion for the users. This is not desirable.

Is there a way to make it so that the print preview opens in the orientation in which my report is designed.

Note: It is working perfectly in google chrome.

Firefox will not stay logged in to some accounts online such as youtube where I will have to hit "log in" repeatedly and each time it opens the next page it's a crapshoot if it will show up as if I was logged in or not and if I click to something else it will log me out again. even when it shows a username like it's logged in, the customizable tool bars will be seen as if I'm not. This goes beyond youtube as even in areas where I'm trying to log in for business it does the same thing to the point it is impossible to use.

This started a while back but and I've just dealt with the problem because I couldn't find a fix. I've tried clearing the history/cookies/caches, nothing changed. I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox but it persists. No changes I've made with the settings has done anything.

To Mozilla Management_Please stop the constant updates>Why do we have to update constantly? ie: SteveKessler SteveKessler 11/20/14, 3:27 PM

We run a very nice internet business and 5 computers keep it running strong however we are continuing to update almost weekly. It has become a hassle to use Firefox. When we first started using Firefox years ago we might get an update 2 times a year now it appears to be 2 times a month. Please let us know why and if there is something we can do to change this. Updating and make unnecessary changes is very costly to our business and if it continues we may have to change browsers. We love Firefox but the updates must stop be so frequent. We do not have the time to keep updating nor do we want any computer updating without someone watching it. We do not want automated updates. On update was the worst when you made all the unnecessary changes. It took me all day to all 5 computers to look alike so everyone could use them no matter where they work. Please consider yourself a top browser and not a fly by night. This is a professional company so please act like it, walk like and turn this around. I am wondering if someone from Microsoft has started to help you?

SteveKessler SteveKessler Question owner 11/20/14, 4:22 PM

Two different answers to one question. I am asking why does Firefox constantly make updates? Why not leave everything alone? I understand if it is necessary but about 95% of the changes are b/c someone thinks they are helping. It is broken so please stop updating. If there needs to be an update due to hacker, i.e. then okay but all these other updates is not making it any better. People think if we make this change it will help others when all it does is make us keep updating and we do not use the new idea. We just want a fast browser without the gimmicks. Please consider that you already had a great browser and leave it alone.

SteveKessler SteveKessler Question owner 11/20/14, 6:56 PM

We're not interested in making changes when nothing is broken. You had Notice the word HAD the best browser on the internet! Now it is another browser competition for what? Just leave it alone. It does not need unnecessary upgrades. Making changes to make changes is not improvement. Keep it up and you will run off everyone. I know more about this than you think. Worked 35 years in this industry and know more than most will ever learn. I know if you keep changing just to change it will break down and you will not get the people back. You are not justifying the means and customers are very finicky. You are very close to losing it all. Too many people trying to show they know something without counting the cost.
