I can no longer print from firefox. The final print always comes out 1/5 +- size and is unreadable. It doesnt matter what king of a document it is and if I go to chrome or edge it prints fine. This began occurring I believe after the last version.

Before I took my computer to a repair facility and had to reinstall Firefox, my recent activity bar had all the websites I use and wanted quick access to along one lovely line. Now I have a bunch of "suggested" crap Firefox must be getting paid for along my recent activity bar. I've never visited these pages and selecting the menu trying to dismiss them doesn't work. How do I eliminate the sponsored sites and get what I want along the recent activity bar?

Hello team,

I'm not sure what happened, but I was not able to open Firefox after restarting my PC. I currently run Windows 11 on a fully upgraded rig.

Up until today, I have been trouble free. Error 1: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I tried several options - and have been googling/trying several steps for a couple of hours (after each step, I restarted the PC):

1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Attempted to use Command Lines to open Firefox https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/CommandLineOptions 3. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile - when I did this the new profile would not display in the Profile Manager, but it would display in the Profiles folder under Appdata [I tried this multiple times] 4. Deleted the profiles.ini file

After deleting the .ini file Error 2: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." 1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile. After following the Profile Wizard, another error pops up: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved."

I am completely stumped. I hope you can help, Sean

My picture-in-picture remains in full screen, even if I double click with my mouse. When I click the ESC button it just closes completely. I have restarted both Firefox and my computer, but I keep getting the same problem. Not just in YouTube either, also on other websites.

Hello,

I believe this issue started ever since I upgraded my PC to Windows 11, and has persisted through a full reinstall. I continually get intermittent SSL errors of all types when visiting any websites. Simply refreshing the page temporarily resolves the issue, but I'd estimate 20% of the time when I try to load a webpage I get the error. This does not happen on any other browser, or Firefox on any other device on my network. Interestingly I believe this even happened on the same machine inside a Linux VM in VMware, but I'm not 100% I am remembering that right. So far, I have tried various fixes including resetting certificate authorities and changing Firefox to use the Windows certificate store in about:config, but nothing has worked so far. I'm all ears for any ideas.

Thanks!

Just now, I tried to use "Email Link..." under the File Menu and got a pop-up asking me to "Choose an application to open the mailto link." I have seen this before, several times, and usually fix it by going to Tools > Settings, under General > Applications, select "mailto" under Content Type, then select Gmail from the drop-down menu.

This time, however, Gmail is not presented as an option, in this pop-up. Clicking "Choose..." just opens up a Windows Explorer file-picker window.

I tried to fix this in Tools > Settings, under General > Applications. There, "mailto" just shows "Use other..." and if I click that, the "Select Helper Application" pop-up window is basically blank, with a message at the bottom saying "No applications were found for this file type."

I refreshed Firefox but it did not solve the problem.

I have tried to attached images but they will not upload.

I am running v100.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 11

Access to Google sites (Gmail, Google Search, Google Calendar) with Firefox (v. 100.0, 64-bit) is very irregular. I can sometimes open the pages, but can't, e.g., edit calendar entries. Often when I click a bookmark (in the Bookmarks Bar), or enter the URL for a Google site, nothing happens. Clicking other bookmarks opens the corresponding pages. Only Google sites seem to be affected. Is FF blocking Google?

Since the latest (5 May 2022) update to Firefox (to Firefox 100.0) my Gmail account does not work properly on my desktop running W11. Gmail frequently disconnects for varying periods, then reconnects, only to disconnect again almost immediately. Gmail will not let me open another account from within the current account. This does not happen on my Android phone where Gmail works properly. Neither does it happen when I run Gmail through Edge on my desktop. Hence I presume it results from an interaction between Firefox100.0 and Gmail. My wife has exactly the same problem using her Microsoft Surface Laptop under W10 since this latest update.

Hello,

I am learning to look at websites with help of the development tools and the inspector tab and I am trying to get into how the web works and how the different programming languages interact and so forth. When moving the mouse over parts of the website, the relating code is highlighted in the inspector tab. I am having an issue as follows:

The first image shows a part of the website code. The mouse cursor is on no specific position, I marked its position with a blue arrow.

In the second image the mouse is over the red "free options" button and in the inspector tab a div appears out of nowhere. It does not appear in the code unless the mouse is moved over the button and disappears as soon as the mouse leaves the button. I have never seen that before (maybe because I am a beginner) and have no clue what happens there.

Is that done with javascript? Or with php? Or with css? Or anything else? What happens there and how can the actual code change?

In the inventor tab, does the code have to do with the DOM rather then the sourcecode of the website is that right?

Please give me some light =)

I went into about:config and changed the following values in order to widen the scrollbar:

css. scrollbar-width was true changed to false idget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size.override was 0 changed to 100 widget.non-native-theme.enabled was true changed to false

Changing these values didn't widen my scrollbar. Without getting into coding, is there another way to make the scrollbar wider? (I changed them all back to the original settings when they didn't work.)

My Firefox has suddenly stopped working when websites have menus you need to scroll through on the right side. Example: websites where you are drilling down through filter options, or in Ancestry where you will typically open a record in the hints screen and scroll down through the detail. The right scroll navigation causes the whole page to scroll up and down; there's no way to navigate down in the sub-display. I have run FF in safe mode, and done a scorched-earth uninstall/reinstall and the problem persists even with no plug-ins restored. This is on a machine running Windows 11. The machine crashed right before this became a problem. Sites work in Edge without issue.

I had been using Firefox browser for awhile, but because of playback performance issue, I have to using another browser just for video playing, especially for 4K video.

Compared to Edge, Firefox seems taking more resources to playback the YouTube video and more heat. When look at the Task Manager, the Video Processing is 0%, and GPU is running significantly more resources on '3D'.
