So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

Having a problem with printing since moving to FF 86.0. Print is automatically set up for my Brother MFC-J895W (LAN connection) to print 2-sided and back-to-front, but is printing the 2nd page upside down. I've tried going into about:config and deleting the entry for "print.print", as well as editing the prefs.js and deleting everything that has "print_", but no help.

Print Preview 86.0 too small to see. Also other print features now very difficult

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

Looks like I need to rollback to Firefox version 84. Updated to version 86. However, printing from Reader View takes over twice the number of printed pages as Simplify Page function found in earlier version. The font in Reader View is much too large for efficient printing.

The two uploaded images print the same webpage article, but earlier Firefox version takes 16-pages, while version 86 takes over twice that many, 35-pages.

Are there about:config settings that can reduce font size in Reader View, or do I have to rollback to version 84?

downloading from a specific website doesn't follow the lastdir

I have experienced with a specific website where downloading images always prompts the save to the Downloads folder instead of staying in the folder where i need to set the downloads for.

meaning: a set of images when clicking on save, then selecting the destination folder and saving, works ok. But upon saving the next image from the gallery returns to the downloads folder.

Trying this from any other website, the last folder where the last image was saved is the one where the new image will be saved.

If from the website where im having this issue, i right-click then click on the image and select "view image" and click save, the browser.download.lastdir does work and the previously used folder shows up as the destination for download.

I have noticed for the past 3 or 4 updates Firefox refuses to update via Help |About. It tells me there is an update I click on the button on the about page to restart the browser yet the update never installs. The only way to update Firefox is to download the installer from Firefox website.

I have cleared cache and cookies and that has done nothing to solve this issue

We have a site that for some reason just started getting blocked by FireFox's Tracking content setting in private browsing mode. We have a Production build that still works but our QA build does not. For the life of my I can't figure out what changed that would have triggered Tracking content to start blocking the site. Basically the site will load but we only get a blank page.

Is there any way to debug what exactly the Tracking content filter is blocking?

Hey,

I've been having a problem for the past few weeks that has persisted across updates and across editions (stable, nightly, developer edition etc.). When trying to open a file picker either for uploading a file on a website or for using "save as..." in context menu nothing happens.

I've launched it via console to check for any possible errors and tried in safe mode but it just fails silently.

Another thing I've tried is running Firefox with "GTK_USE_PORTAL=1" and installing xdg-desktop-portal & xdg-desktop-portal-kde to make Firefox use KDialog but same problem.

Drag and drop still works fine and the issue is limited to Firefox, other browsers open file dialogs normally.

Thank you very much for your help in advance!
