I would like to create what I call custom popups. If I go to a page, a popup will show my own notes. This may be a reminder about my personal history. It would have to be on my computer only and be triggered when I go to the site. I realize that the real url may be obscured by an app, and I don't know if that can be overcome.

I'm imagining when I go to a particular web page, I will see a reminder, or popup or note with my own comments.

This may already be available, but perhaps I don't know the right questions to ask.

I assume this would only be available on one browser on one computer.

Looking at a product on Amazon (that I've purchased before), it may tell me: "Works like a charm" or "Piece of *"

On a dating site it might remind me when I see one person: "Danger, Will Robinson" or "Try again after Christmas"

A business site might show a note: "Remind owner you met at Halloween bash" or "Express sympathy about loss of pet"

On the App Store it might remind me that an app: "Doesn't work for me" or "This is the one Janet recommends"

Perhaps on a saved document: "Sent on Aug 7 by Robert" or "Still doesn't have the right tone....look again in a week"

And when I am deciding which app to use on my computer: "Great graphic app when rushed, but not powerful" (I would never think that an app named "Moosepow" was for graphics.)

I may even be asking the wrong question. I want reminders that are automatic.

Hello!

I've been a Firefox user for quite some time now, thank you!

Currently, I'm working on a new website for my business and have a custom font that I'm trying to get compatible across all browsers. For some reason, I can't seem to get the right CSS to have it work on my Firefox browser, despite the trusty Internet assuring me it should be otherwise!

This is the CSS I'm using at the moment:

@font-face {

 font-family: 'Santana';
 src: url('santana.woff2') format('woff2'),
      url('santana.woff') format('woff'),
      url('santana.ttf') format('truetype');

}

I'm wondering how I might go about circumventing this issue so that the Santana script also shows on Firefox browsers.

Thank you!

Best, Rivka

Duplicate Firefox profiles problem, MacOS

I am trying to 'fork' my FF, duplicating my profile on to a stick, then modify each one so that my work related bookmarks, saved passwords, cookies, history etc are in one profile, and my social/general bookmarks, cookies, passwords etc are in the other. I have done this and using about:profiles can open the non-default (USB stick) profile in a new window, or set the non default profile as default, close, re-open FF into the alternate profile. All good so far. However this isnt working quite as I expected. If I switch to alternate profile, save a bookmark to the shortcut bar, then switch back to the other profile then after a second or two the bookmark I saved in the other profile appears on the shortcut bar?!? This happens whether I have opened alt profile in a new window, or have changed the default profile and restarted FF into the other profile. Is this because in both instances it is using the same local directory? The doesnt seem to be an option to choose a different local directory for the alt profile. This would be ideal if possible as it would ensure that there are no data crumbs left on my PC when using the USB stick profile which is important for my work security. Any help really appreciated.

I have my language settings to English, and English ONLY.

When I open multiple sites, or even try to log in and view my passwords ~ it constantly displays in Russian or some other language.

There is no helpful solution posted, and I have no idea to fix this. Again ~ only English is set in my personal settings.

Any advice?

After the recent Firefox update, my headers are magnified when I print. How can I reduce the setting so I don't have to download to Adobe before printing or switching to another browser altogether? Somewhat computer savvy, so I can go to about:config...just don't know what settings to look for and adjust. Thank you!

I'm trying to figure out how to disable your automatic news feed reader preview setting. Wading through your overly complicated and endless Support pages has taken more time than it would take to install a different browser and start from scratch. I like Firefox, but this is ridiciulous. I've gone through all the preferences a half-dozen times or more.

If I click the 3 bars in the upper right of the browser, I can find the extensions in the settings. I can enable them, but I can not figure out how to find the extensions in firefox. How do I pin them or use them?

A few days ago I started having issues with pages printing correctly. The page displays normal, but prints very zoomed in. I did not change any settings before this happened (but I did update recently). I have tinkered with different printing settings (fit to page/scale and others) to try to solve the problem, but I cant seem to solve it. I also used the troubleshooting page to reset print settings, which also did nothing. If I download the page and open it from my desktop everything works like normal, but it is a bit of a pain to do every time. I have tried multiple websites and two different printers, so it seems to be a browser related issue. How do I fix this?
