Hi !

PROBLEM: This is a recent problem. I didn't have this issue before. When I open a pdf in firefox and print it, it prints 1/4 size (top left corner).

ATTEMPTS AT TROUBLESHOOTING - I've tried adjusting the scaling options on my printer, but still get the same results. - I've confirmed "printer_paper_data" is set to "1" for both Adobe PDF as well as a my printer, "Brother_HL_2270DW" - Made sure printers were set to shrink to fit = true

My settings are configured to open pdf documents in firefox.

i just downloaded the new version onto my macbook pro, and have lost all my bookmarks and other settings which is very annoying. It wants me to sync with another device but I DON'T WANT to do that !! how can I avoid this and restore my settings/bookmarks etc or barring that, dump the new version and go back to the old one which worked fine which hopefully still has all my settings ?

I've been using New Tab Override for quite some time to ensure that when I open a new tab, my Google home page opens with the tab.

Up until Firefox 80.0, the cursor would land on the Google search bar in the middle of the screen but now it lands in the URL field - most annoying.

Any ideas?

I have Firefox set to always open Google.com when a new tab is opened. Before yesterday's update (Aug 27, 2020) the cursor would appear in the Google search bar on opening a new tab, which is the way I want it. After the update, Google still opens as before, but the cursor is at the from of the address bar instead of the Google search bar. I've tried a couple of things to fix this with no luck. What should I do?

Since a sudden power outage, when I use firefox maximized (not f11) there's a white border around 3 of the 4 edges - not including the top. It's about 2mm thick, and only goes away if I press f11.

I've tried uninstalling, cleaning out all the old files and reinstalling firefox; I've tried disabling and re-enabling add-ons; I've tried changing my screen resolution to something else and switching back. All to no effect.

This has never happened before, and my monitor is at 100% resolution. Can anyone suggest what else I could try?

So nice that Firefox is now part of the cancel culture. Since that is now the case, I suggest you change your name, Firefox, to Firechicken. Fox is a sexist term for a particular type of woman. I'm sure you wouldn't want to put women into a particular category! I expect we'll see a the new name and logo any day now.

Your Last Update was a MESS! I never consented to automatic updates however, when my computer crashed because my power cord came out, I returned to my compute to an update screen. Who asked you? I would prefer to control my own updates. Needless to say, my regEdit had been 'messed with and all my shortcuts were removed. You may be well-meaning by I find your tactics despicable.

You used to be a thoughtful company but i guess the good ones can't maintain thine own integrity when folx like Google shows up and slams everybody against the wall with their snooping! I've been using your browser for a very long time because I thought you were more considerate than the likes of Microsoft and Chrome. Capitalism has 'eff'ed everybody up I guess; why should you be any different. PLEASE don't change my settings UNLESS I ASK YOU TO. I am not stupid and don't need you to make choices for me.

I have included a screen shot. The icon changes in the one representing the currently visited website after a second or so.

Many thanks in advance,

Hi. Since Firefox 79 the CSS on every Ebay website do not work. No issues on Chrome. See attached screenshots. This happens on either Windows and Ubuntu. Since Ebay is a sponsor of Firefox, i tried to report this issue to Ebay, but i could only find a chat with some (presumably) support chap from who knows where who did not understand the issue at all (typical with tech supports from India). I am not sure if this is an Ebay or Firefox issue, but since ***no*** Ebay website display correctly but only as a plain text page, i would like to ask to Firefox developers to look into the issue and see what can be done to resolve it. Regards, Eros
