Redirect via onafterprint working in Chromium but not Firefox

I am trying to serve a print view and redirect the user to the page they came from right after printing (or cancelling). This works fine in Chromium with the following bit of JavaScript code:

  function printPageAndRedirectTo(redirectUrl) {
   window.addEventListener("afterprint", function () {
       window.location.href = redirectUrl;
   });
   window.print();

In Firefox, however, nothing happens at all. Debugging shows that the callback is called, but the href field remains unchanged.

This is mysterious to me. Any ideas what the reason might be?

Firefox version is 84.0.2, Chromium 87.0.4280.88 (both from the Arch Linux repositories).

Edit:

Here's a fiddle to illustrate. Redirect to Wikipedia works in Chromium but not in Firefox: https://jsfiddle.net/xnazLb6p/1/

Edit 2:

Another one to show that the problem here is redirecting from the event listener, not redirecting itself: https://jsfiddle.net/xnazLb6p/2/

Greetings, I am trying to fill out a PDF form using Firefox's built in PDF viewer and form editor. I'm running Linux (Ubuntu) with Firefox 84. I am able to successfully view and "Open" the PDF within the browser, and even edit the text properly. However, upon saving or printing, the text gets rendered with a massive font size nullifying the ability to edit in browser. I've been trying to find some online resources without success, and can't seem to find others reporting a similar case.

I've disabled all extensions and restarted Firefox, but did not notice any change in behavior. Any tips for debugging? Attached are two pics of the PDF form while editing, and then the rendered PDF after saving.

hi, I'm having problems with Firefox on my Mac - every time Firefox is shut down, I have to relog in and authenticate myself and all my settings have gone so I have to redo them again. I have tools that I use for work that use certain settings else they don't work so I have to redo them every time I reopen the browser or shut my machine down. anyone know why this might be the case?

I don't know if it's linked but when I started using this current machine last year and loaded everything on, Firefox is sitting under 'locations' rather than applications and I don't seem to able to install it anywhere else - see image attached.

Many thanks.

I have a question, that's actually pretty simple:

Is there any information from Firefox Relay about, if an alias is re-assigned to another user after they have been deleted by the first user? Or is Relay making sure, that every alias is only used once if deleted. Otherwise you could try and to recover services and passwords from other's peoples services after they got deleted.

thanks!

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "we need to restart to finish updating" <- this last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

Hi, I'm a developer and I have a progressive web app website. It is HTTPS only and is on the HSTS preload list.

In the top sites list the icon recently changed to offline though the site has never been down. It's been so for about a month.

Can anyone tell me why that is happening? It's important to me that any visitors see the correct icon displayed in top sites.

Thanks in advance Steve

Since the latest upgrade of FireFox 84, I have been having troubles with some websites like Disney + , Amazon Prime and playing videos from youtube Facebook and some other sites on both Windows and Linux. I believe I read that Firefor was going to stop using Adobe plugis or some kind of plugin. Like i said after it updated that is when the trouble started. MX19 (A LXDE distro based on antix which was originally a lightweight off shoot of Mepis) the build team do build new package when updates are released. I had to download and use Chrome (which I really hate) to watch these video and also use Doxy video service to talk to my Dr,s) Here is a typical screenshot TY
