I save many items and documents as PDF files using the Microsoft Print to PDF option, rather than physically printing on my printer. This worked fine for quite some time. This option no longer works when I am using Firefox, but it still works if I use Chrome.

I would rather not have to switch to Chrome whenever I want to print something to a PDF file.

How can I resolve this?

Hi, I've been trying to get Widevine to install on Firefox for a few weeks (,month+ maybe?) but after all this time I'm left with the message Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly. I've already tried reinstalling stuff, safe mode, enabling and disabling DRM and all the other stuff to help so at this point I'd just want to do it myself. Can't find any Widevine download or really any way on how to install it manually though, which is where I need assistance on, again I've already resigned to the fact that Widevine autoinstalling through firefox is broken and I'd rather try and do it myself manually. Thank you.

OK. I use Buckeye Express as ISP. I have a Buckeye email address. There is a Buckeye URL address that allows me to see my email online. To sign out of my web buckeye account i go to a menu that has a Sign Out link. The address of the link is javascript:funSignout(). I can search the code on the webpage and find the link.

However when I click the link in the email program, the Sign out Window does not open in FireFox.

The sign out window has two buttons and a message: Do You Really Want to Sign Out? YES or NO. you have to click YES to sign out of my email address. I can get out of my email address by closing the FireFox Browser. Then I can go to the URL address and sign in to my email address again. If I do not close FireFox When I go back to Buckeye Mail, I am already signed in.

So the javascript window does not open in FireFox 86.0. If I use EDGE or CHROME, the window opens. I can click YES and sign out. I have enabled popup windows but the popup is generated by javascript on the website. But the window doesn't open. This is a relatively new problem. Firefox 86 (64 bit). Help

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Just yesterday some common redirect sites like adfocus and adfly stopped loading in nightly. example: http://adfoc.us/serve/?id=27122877684764

I'm guessing this was done fore security reasons as most people would fall for the fake downloads (or sometimes the entire page redirecting to a new tab when clicked anywhere on it), but it would be great if an option could be added to allow it to load like with: [hey cor-el ask for the link since I don't want this post to get removed :P]

since if you know what you are doing you do eventually work your way to the correct download even if it involves inspecting > deleting the invisible buttons covering the page...

There might already be something in about:config to do it so if so please let me know.

I've been having the problem of websites loading slowly on Firefox for a few days now. Firefox itself loads quickly, but opening Youtube for example takes a very long time.

I have this problem since I have a new internet line, yet this is most likely not the problem, since on chrome this problem does not occur.

As a solution I have cleaned firefox and even clean reinstalled it. However, the problem still occurs. I suspect that this is a problem related to my profile. Even opening it without addons does nothing.

Any ideas?

Hi all!

So, in my personal opinion, the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension is of course much better than sliced bread, and in fact, among the very best concepts ever implemented by sw developers. So good, that it's the reason why still use Firefox. I would never use Chrome, and I know for sure that all those who use it have zero idea just how much, and in what malicious ways, Google has built in settings that theoretically allow to keep your browsing r-e-l-a-t-i-v-e-l-y private (just so that Google can always claim "users CAN keep their browsing details = personal details private"). But the default in Chrome is always sniffin'. And more sniffin'. And more sniffin'. Think: That's Google's ENTIRE business purpose. And particularly for all products they make "free". Just think of gmail. LOL

So, now everyone believes my enthusiasm for Firefox and its extension Firefox Multi-Account Containers, right?

That allows me to post a suggestion for further improvement. And I DDG'ed much, where to give extension feedback, but sadly every feedback avenue is closed. You know. So, better here than nowhere:

IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTION FOR Firefox Multi-Account Containers

======================================

Current behavior: It auto-recognizes in which container to open a URL by looking at the domain part, only.

Current behavior also: It "forgets" the container entirely, when you reopen firefox with prior tabs, and you had consciously opened a particular page in a different container than the associated one.


Desired modification: A checkmark to toggle per container, if we really want container recognition by domain part only, or by a little more than that. See explanation below.

Desired behavior also: Firefox should reopen the browser with prior tabs LIKE THEY WERE, ie if a tab purposefully was in a different container before closing firefox, then obviously upon reopening firefox after bootup it should still be in that different container, and not be now totally UNassociated, aka in no container, like it currently is. - This point I find obvious, it requires no explanation.

The first modification would allow instances like these: - I have multiple, legit, email accounts, and open them in Roundcube, part of Cpanel of my webhosts. - Work email addresses open in "Work" container, Private email addresses in "Private" container, and so forth. - ALL Roundcube tabs (or whatever you might use) login at https://domain.com:2096/ but obviously with different usernames and pw's. - But currently Firefox cannot differentiate that, because it only looks at the domain part, domain.com

How about a checkmark allowing users to select one way or the other for a container? - unchecked: like now - checked: Firefox will differentiate the entire domain up to the first / aka, it will be able to differentiate subdomains, :2096 's (ports?), and similar stuff, because that's all BEFORE the first /

Could this suggestion please be made viral :) such that the extension developer(s) become aware of it?
