Ever since you last changed Preview, it takes FOREVER for the darn page to load (be seen in Preview) and then FOREVER more to print. Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??

Doesn't help if I type the whole url. Urls with id 1394 and 1396 work. I have previously visited the page in question. The page works on other browsers.

Over the last 8 weeks or so, I have problems with Firefox displaying chess.com website. The problem is chess.com home page loads but the live play with 3D chess board page no longer displays the board fully (top edge cut off) & some other chess.com pages fail to load properly or fully (articles pages and opening analysis pages). I have cleared my browser history & tried reinstalling Firefox (& tried resetting my router) but with no effect. If I use an alternative browser chess.com site works fine & as a long time Firefox user I would prefer to continue with Firefox, but this issue means I will now access chess.com on an alternate browser! Any help gratefully received to help fix this, thanks, I look forward to a positive reply!

I'm so unhappy now I don't know where to begin.

I was having trouble loading a website (lowes.com), continually getting an "access denied" error message. It occurred to me that I'd read somewhere that if you told Firefox to "forget this site," it might solve the "access denied" problem. I didn't remember how to do this, though, so I searched online and found a site that said that adding the "Remove" button to the Toolbar and clicking it would solve the problem. I dutifully added the "Remove" button, then, before clicking it, I triple-checked that the "Forget the last Five minutes" was selected and not any longer period of time. After all, I didn't want to lose everything!

Well, I did.

I had literally hundreds of tabs that I was working on open — they're all gone. All of my history — years worth — is missing. More things may have been deleted, but, to be honest, I'm afraid to check.

What did I do wrong? Or is the "Remove" button buggy?

And while I believe that everything that's missing now is irretrievably lost, if anyone has a hack to recover anything, I would be so, so grateful if you'd let me know.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I wrote this post up once, hit "Submit," then, after an interminable period of time, the screen went to a blank page. My original post has never appeared. Is there perhaps something wrong with my Firefox (which has been perfectly fine up until now)?

I have a problem with enabling two-step authentication for my Mozilla account. There have been several questions regarding issues with two-step authentication, but none of them applies to my case, so I started another one.

When I try to enable 2SA, there are seemingly no problems. When I scan the QR code and enter the 6-digit security code, I don't get the "invalid two-step authentication code" message. I do get the 8 10-digit recovery codes. After I enter one of them I get a prompt saying "Two-step authentication enabled" (see attachment), but nothing else happens. It seems like the process is stuck here and isn't completed.

I have tried setting 2SA from my profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings) too, but when I logout and login again, it says Not Set.

I wouldn't normally use 2SA at all if it hasn't been made mandatory for logging into Add-ons (addons.mozilla.org). Now, I'm locked out of my Add-ons account and can't access my extensions!

As the subject says. I can still search for the firefox app and open it that way or I can start it from the START page that comes up when I hit the windows key on the keyboard. But I am not allowed to drag and drop it onto the taskbar as it says it's already there. It's sorta there I guess because FF is open right now while I type this and this open tab is indicated on the taskbar. If I were to close the FF window there would be no FF logo on the taskbar.

Right clicking the firefox app in the start list that comes up when I left click on the windows icon in the lower left or hit the windows key on my keypad gives me options to unpin FF from the start page or unpin it from the taskbar. I don't want to do that.

I did something to mess this up and I can't fix it. I want the FF logo back on my taskbar so when I power up the machine I can click on the logo in the taskbar to get to the browser with all my previously open tabs back.

The latest Windows 10 a Lenovo yoga laptop if it matters.

Thanks

Tried to sign into Firefox Reality today, wanted to send an email for verification, but I never got it. Tried signing into Firefox Android, same thing, no email received to login. So I logged into my Mozilla account using Chrome on my phone. Got in fine. I can see the recent login attempts in history.

So I try and add a secondary email, which first, wants me to verify my email, which I'm still not getting...

I have used this email for Mozilla since 2016, no problem. Looks like the last email from Mozilla I got was from 3/23/21. I wonder if they are blocking my domain unintentionally or something. I use my own domain for email - protonus.ws - and I fully control the email on it. Yes I checked my spam folder. Searched the server, last thing from Mozilla was 3/23. Anyone know who I can contact to see what's up?

Is anyone out there familiar with the "Mile Wide Back" addon? It allow you to go to the previous web site page or the next page with a left/right mouse click on the left page border. I'm hoping someone who knows it's history will have a workaround for a problem it has. Apparently, the developer is no longer available.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/milewideback-webext/?utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_source=firefox-browser

I've been using it for years. It was modified for quantum, but there is a problem. One of it's functions is to scroll thru tabs with a mouse wheel turn. I wouldn't want that feature even if it did work right, but it's broken.

One lone click of the mouse wheel on the left page border and it scrolls thru 6 tabs. Two clicks, 12+ tabs, etc. There's no option to disable that feature.

However, in it's pre-quantum version, there were about:config commands that could modify it's behavior.

I have another handy app, Volume2. You can set it up to change volume with a mouse wheel turn while touching the left border of any window. Up until recently, this feature superseded the Mile Wide Back function, but lately it stopped helping.

Since neither the apps have changed in over a year, I believe the change in behavior is due to Firefox 88,which was released around the same time this started happening.
