Firefox has suddenly stopped sizing shipping labels when downloading them from Amazon and ebay. They print way too large. Changing the printer setting, size, etc does not help. It seems as though Firefox is converting them somehow. I have tried clearing the printer settings in Firefox also.

Hey :)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1265175 This no longer seems to work on my new mac (M1, FF 103.0.2)

Or maybe I did something wrong but I cannot figure it out.

Basically, I get no change whatsoever after creating the userChrome.css file and placing it in the appropriate "chrome" folder in my profile folder...

Please help me figure this out.

Best, Julien

Google Calendar and a few other websites do not render symbols correctly. Please see attached. What should be displayed instead of letters are symbols such as > or ^. I've tried updating FF (103.0.2), ran in Safe Mode, disabled extensions, and nothing has helped. I'd like to keep using FF instead of Safari (running MacOS Monterey 12.5.1), but this is annoying.

Any ideas?

Firefox unter ubuntu 22 hat keinen Zugriff auf die lokalen Dateien (z.B. /usr/share) Der 'open' auf '/usr' scheitert mit 'read'-Zugriffsrecht.

Ganz egal, was in '/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.firefox' respektive in '/etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.bin.firefox' spezifiziert wird, das Zugriffsrecht für '/usr' ist immer 'read'.

Wie kann man auf die Dateien unter '/usr/share' zugreifen?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Your advise to hold the F5 button and left click the screen refresh is not a fix to the fact that Firefox will not refresh itself most of the time on my Windows 10/64 machine. Chrome and Edge do not have this problem on my machine, and I prefer Firefox so I wish you'd fix the issue instead of offering workarounds.

Thank you,

Nick Langdon, Sacramento

So for the longest time I've had issues trying to load, "https://www.metrobyt-mobile.com" and all I get is:

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.metrobyt-mobile.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Works fine is all other browser, but Firefox. Even on a brand new laptop I bought I tried to load Metro site through Desktop Firefox and it always comes back with this issue. I've tried disabling everything that is recommended on the forum, but nothing helps, but as I stated, "Brand New Laptop." Which has a clean install of Windows with a clean install of Firefox in Incognito, no sign in, no extension, and still this is the only site that refuses to load for me. I've tried friends and family members Desktop to Laptops as well and same error.

So either Mozilla Firefox has an issue on all Desktops or I am seriously mission something. If it was a software conflict or something a clean Windows install shouldn't have this issue, but it does. I'm putting this out there to Mozilla to look into as to find out if it's an issue on my side, their side, or Metro PCS's side. Funny enough it works fine on the Mozilla Firefox App. I can run the app through Bluestacks and that loads fine on my desktop through an android emulator. It just seems to be Firefox on the Desktop side.

If I click on the little (i) Icon in the address bar it says, "Connection Failure." Clicking on that, "You are not securely connected to this site." If I clear the cookies I get a secure connection, but the just loads blank, no text or anything.

Prevent Firefox from remembering/displaying login names for sites which are set to not remember credentials

I regularly see suggested login names for sites such as my credit card companies. I highlight them, delete them, and days later, they are back again. I never want selected web site login pages to show suggested login names. How do I prevent Firefox from doing this.

I do wish to have user ID and passwords auto-filled for some sites. I am happy with some Forms data being remembered, such as name & address.

Suggestions ???

Hi,

I use firefox on both a work and home computer, as well as my phone (iOS). I have sync active on all three devices, yet the synced tabs only ever shows one device's tabs. On both computers, the iOS tabs are all that displays in synced tabs, and on iOS, only one of the two computer's tabs are shown, and often with the wrong name - I haven't found out what determines which computer's tabs shows in the synced tabs menu or which name is used, but it definitely isn't which computer was used more recently, for either requirement.

Under Windows 10, the Windows taskbar showed Firefox open windows. After migrating to Windows 11, the Windows taskbar shows all tabs opened, without grouping them by window.

I read this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1222298

but the suggested fix isn't shown in about:preferences

Is this a Windows 11 thing, or am I missing a Firefox solution?

i am using Firefox Snap version 103.0.2 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 22.04. Whenever I try logging in to twitter, It shows a blank screen after I press login button after entering the password (Image is attached). I can login to other browsers I have installed on my laptop.

I have tried removing cookies of Twitter.com several times and even reinstalled snap version but the issue is still there. Any fixes for this? I can't keep switching browsers just for using twitter.

I got a new computer running windows 11.

I installed Firefox as my default browser. I then noticed the address bar performing search which is annoying as hell and actually and interferes with productivity as I use search. Basically, I have to redo searches after the address bar. It is problematic. The one off search from address bar according to last survey only 26% of users like it. rest want it gone.

As for me, I have tried the solution of Keyword set to false and the browser url oneoff also set to false.

I saw another suggested item of turn off keyword search. However, that item does not have an off button or switch within Windows 11. Just check marks of the suggested keywords that developers installed into the field when downloaded. I unchecked all the items as that was the only change I could do. So, there is no keyword selected. I closed all browser windows and restarted Firefox.

The address bar search still occurs. This make the previous question and answer solution invalid as of August 12, 2022.

I consider this a BUG and a major development of Firefox browser failure. When I search, I am looking for generally wide range of results and alternative search options are better than specific one off search. Best example; What is difference between Clementines and Mandarins? As a one off search you get one set of results. When you use the proper search box of a search engine, you get totally different results that are more useful and less time consuming to know the full range of answers, history, physical traits as well as other items not considered in the address bar search. In the search engine box, you do get the address bar search items. However, they always are 6 to 20 down the list of preferred or most useful. However, the address bar search results do not have all the top 5 items from the search engine search. It is a matter of how the address bar does the search that is at issue. For whatever reason, the results are not as good as direct input. You will have to determine through investigation why that is. However, that is a year's worth of investigation if anyone would do it. In the mean time, this address bar search needs a simple button that does all the changes necessary to make it stop!

Additionally, I find multiple related search options that are given by search engines extremely helpful when looking for related type of searches. This is something that the address bar search can not do and was never designed or allowed to do. Thus, it causes loss of productivity.

As such and because it does cause loss of productivity, it is a BUG and by law, Mozilla must remove items or provide easy solution to stop productivity failure.

The current solution does not work. That means Mozilla must provide an update immediately to make this feature go away for those who find it annoying, useless or interference with productivity!
