Printing presentation on line with correct page orientation

I often need to print or download pdf presentation files from online sources which I used to do on Safari (I use imac) On Safari, the pdf presentation automatically rotates on the print page, so then I can use "save as PDF" on portrait and everything looks good. (then I just rotate the file to landscape on Preview or PDFexpert to read the presentation).

When I try to do the same on Firefox, on the print page, the presentation does not rotate and remain landscape. The problem is, when I choose landscape to print, then the presentation is not centered on the page and skewed to one side so I get much wider margin on one side.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

I appreciate any advice or input!

I have a new MacBook Pro 2020 with MacOS Big Sur 11.0.1. I have made Firefox the default browser by going to the Apple menu and choosing System Preferences then choosing General. I have also made Firefox the default browser by going to the Firefox menu and choosing Preferences then General. On that screen it says that Firefox is not my default browser and there is a box to click on that says "Make Default". I click on it then click on "use Firefox", but when I click on links in my email Safari still opens. Any suggestions.

Cannot create Certificate Exception

On my home network, I run a Ubiquiti UniFi Network (Security Gateway, Switch and WiFi Access Points). I access the administrative functions with UniFi Controller software which accesses those functions via https://localhost:8443. The Gateway Roouter itself is at 10.0.0.1:443, but cannot be administered at this address.

When I try to access the website, I get the standard Firefox invalid security certificate warning as the certificate is self-signed (image 1). Once I Accept the Risk and Continue, I can successfully log into the site. But once I quit my Firefox session, whenever I launch Firefox and try to access the site, I am again given the same invalid security certificate.

Previously, I was able to create a certificate exception which bypassed that warning, but no longer.

When I go into Firefox's Preferences : Privacy & Security : Certificates : View Certificates page, I can see a Temporary exception (image 2), which presumably only lasts for the current session. I try to Add Exception, enter my localhost port number' (image 3), then click on Get Certificate. It tells me that I have valid, verified identification. There is no need to add an exception (image 4).

And yet, every time I visit the localhost website, I am prompted with the warning. Any ideas of what I might do avoid this warning every time I want to access it? Is there some way to allow this device (or even ALL devices) on my home network to be trusted?

Also attached are images of my UniFi Certificate.

Thank you for any assistance.

Hi all,

After month of using, the screenshot function of Firefox seems to have disappeared. Right click contextual menu does now show the option to take a screenshot and the [three dots] -> Take Screenshot menu action does nothing. Moreover, the icon of the function seems to be missing (see attached images). I run latest (83 64-bit) version on a new MacBook pro.

Thanks in advance, Alex

Hi- i'm a little confused about the "collections" feature on my pixel. is it supposed to carry over onto my computer? I'd love to access my collections on my desktop. I also recently upgraded my phone- my collections haven't transferred over to my new phone and that's also frustrating. I might just be an idiot but i can't seem to find any documentation on whether collections syncs between desktop and mobile; an indication that this is generally thought to be so obvious it needs no documentation.

Whenever I have to go to a videoconference hosted through the browser (like GoogleMeet or Theranest), Firefox asks me to choose a camera, but it doesn't allow me to choose the built-in FaceTime camera on my iMac. The only option it offers is EpocCam, which I have installed on my phone but never use. (I've attached a screenshot so you can see that I can't choose any other camera – it just doesn't give me the option!) I must have selected EpocCam once several months ago, but I cannot figure out how to get rid of it as an option on Firefox and I can't choose the built-in camera. I've searched for hours to find a solution but can't figure out how to deal with this. I don't have a similar problem on Safari, which is the only other browser I have installed at this point; and I don't want to migrate all my stuff to a new browser just because of this presumably easy-to-solve problem. Help!

Current preference settings are increased font size to 14pt and zoom 110%. Since I set those preferences some websites, mainly ones with form fields, come up as a boxed question mark. Also when I do an internet search is comes out crazy alien like text / weird code. See attached screen shot of a basic search for 'books'. I prefer using Firefox over Safari and would love to remedy this.

Using current version 83 on Mac OS 10.15.7.

Hello,

I'm posting because I found nothing on the internet about this.

When I want to drag and drop a file from Firefox (for example : an image) to my desktop, the file always get placed somewhere decided by Firefox instead of the place I wanted.

Example : I want to drag and drop an image from Firefox on the bottom left of my screen, and it gets placed on the top right.

This is really annoying because Firefox always decide a different place to put the file, and I always lose time looking for the file on my desktop.

This is the only application that I use that does this.

Is this possible to fix ?

Thank you for helping !

Recently, I have been blocked from visiting certain websites by Firefox, which are perfectly fine websites. I have to close out of Firefox and use Safari to connect to these websites. One of the websites is my City of San Bruno website: https://www.onlinebiller.com/sanbruno/index.html.

This is just one of several websites in which I'm told the website there is a potential security issue. Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue: I copy and pasted the warning below: "Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.onlinebiller.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? www.onlinebiller.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

I contacted the City of San Bruno and was told it's a browser problem. As I mentioned above I can connect to these sites through Safari with no problem.

Thank You for any explanation/assistance on how to connect to these websites using Firefox.

Friends, I use FF extensively and prefer not to change but it's been very annoying as of late.

Running v83. Even downgraded to v82 and it worked for some minutes but now it's back to same behavior. [struggle to download to 82 is here: https://rezamusic.yolasite.com/technical-tips.php]

If you google "squeeze lemon" for example -- on my Chrome it shows images and a list of drop down subjects "people also ask".

On Firefox, the pictures don't show -- and drop downs are frozen (don't work). Also on other sites that have a Captcha, Firefox just doesn't work. Seems same problem with 82. Help!

Images are from Chrome -- and last one from Firefox
