Hello,

I have some trouble adding an e-mail address to the monitor service. It seems that the e-mail bounce back. My e-mail provider is asking me if I can provided them with the e-mail sent by firefox, and the received answer, so they could check what is causing it. How could I get those information? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Cyril

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

I've been having trouble for a couple of months with Firefox. It's on both my desktop and my laptop with both Firefox and Firefox Developer. It seems to happen at random, but instead of being able to see words, all I can see is symbols like these (attached). If I copy/paste it into a word doc or a text file, I can read it just fine. It's only in the browser that I experience these issues.

Has anyone else had these issues? Is there an easy fix that I'm just not seeing?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Hey team, I would like to know if there is a way to "name" the firefox window? I have multiple theme windows (for instance, one is for all recipes, one is for all news pages, one is for all online classes) with multiple tabs open and would like to find a way to navigate between them in an easier way. Naming them would be lovely, so I could name the window "recipes" and find the right one easier in the dock.

Anyone knows a trick? If it doesn't exist, any way to hint to the developers that this would be helpful? :) It could be just me though :)

Thank you for your thoughts,

Kata

I have posed this question under "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems," and under "Other," and have not gotten a single response. So I am trying it again here.

This is a major glitch, and I am surprised that no one else is dealing with it too!

Is there anyone who works for Mozilla who monitors these forums who can help?
=========

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

This question is on behalf of my mother, who has been using firefox for years and has an extensive 'library' of bookmarks and tags and history that she relies on and doesn't want to lose. She either never has had, or has forgotten, a login password, and when prompted to request a new one, it appears that all her existing history would be wiped. How can she ensure that all the painstaking work to create bookmarks and folders and tagged history is not lost? How can she save this data so as to be sure to be able to access it? Thanks in advance for any tips!

I have tried the existing recommendations to delete item(s) beginning with print_ that had no effect. I copied prefs.js and removed all items beginning with print and replaced existing prefs file. Curiously that change worked at least twice before trying PDF print preview. After trying the preview the print function went back to taking 30 to 60 seconds to respond.

Print and print preview work fine in Chrome and Safari.

I have a macbook air and a new macbook pro. The macbook pro works well. I compared the config print items and found no obvious discrepancies. Both macbooks are on Firefox 84.0.2

My significant other blames Apple. I am convinced the problem lies with Firefox. Oh -- print screens are not worthwhile since we're talking a major time delay.

Printing from Firefox is really slow--2-3 minutes before the print menu appears, and then another minute before the printer actually goes to work. "Printing" to a .pdf file takes just a long before the file appears on the desktop.

The problem is uniform across all the websites I've tried it on.

I don't have the problem with Safari or Chrome.

Restarting Firefox with add-ons disabled makes no difference. Deleting the printer setting didn't help. Resetting all Firefox printer settings didn't help. Refreshing Firefox helped once, but only for the first print job after the refresh, then the problem reappeared.

This issue started fairly recently, maybe when Firefox v.84 appeared (?)

I'm using Firefox 84.0.2 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on a late 2012 iMac.

This problem does not show up in the family's MacBook Pros, which have the same version of Firefox, but newer OS versions.

I'm resistant to updating the OS, because too many of the apps I use regularly don't play nicely with the newer versions of macOS.

Help!

Thanks, Wimsey

When the computer awakes from sleep, I can't click on anything within a browser window. I can't move between tabs either. The Firefox menu works and can select items in there. Restarting the browser fixes it. I got in touch with Apple yesterday and they said they couldn't help me because this is a Firefox problem. So here I am.

I search for a folder, usually by topic. Perhaps I'm looking for Buicks and find several bookmarks. Now I want to find the folder that it's in to perhaps find more cars. The folder might be CARS, AUTO, VEHICLES or whatever.

How do I search for the FOLDER?

Looking for this solution, I find several answers, none work. The start at the end does not show the folder. There is no way I know of to search for a folder. Help?
