The former versions of Reader View looked pretty much like normal documents - without all the superfluous clutter that an original webpage article might contain. So, it could easily be printed OR copy/pasted into a new Word document, and then printed. However, in the new Reader View (v. 87 - 88), most of the photographs are retained. In fact, they are often duplicated, i.e., instead of having one head shot of the subject of an article, there will be TWO identical ones - along with many of the other original photos (also duplicated). So, we now have a Reader View that contains twice the number of photos than the original webpage article did!!

The consequence? I have to "copy" blocks of text; paste them into a document; return to the webpage; dodge the photo(s); and go to the text for another copy/paste cycle. Spin, Repeat, etc. This is SO tedious, especially when the previous Reader View retained, at most, only one photo at the beginning, followed by nothing else but text. This allowed for fast and easy printing or saving. Alas, this is no longer possible (and I have expanded/modified Print Preview as much as possible and followed every other "temporary" tweak suggested in the Support Community!)

Lastly, on v. 88, I still cannot see the former "Simplify Page" (which, if memory serves, did not do as thorough a job of minimizing a webpage.) For what it's worth, is there any way the previous version of Reader View can be resurrected, preferably with NO photos, on a permanent basis?? Thanks very much.

When accessing my own WordPress website with a Firefox browser I am getting a display that looks as if there is an additional layer on top of the display, and you need to do a Ctrl +F5 to get a normal display.

Going to some of the categories, you only get the page loader. I have checked with Chrome and Vivaldi, and it is working fine there.

My question – Is this a WordPress theme problem, or a Firefox issue?

I found in 87.0 and now 88.0 that even after uninstalling and installing a new version, there is after clicking Menu/Options a message on top of the window:

" ! Your browser is controlled by your organisation" This is not true, there is no organisation on this PC. After clicking the link here is a new window saying there is a application active that is called "Disable App Update". After clicking "documentation" on the left side there opens a list of applications to modify the operation of Firefox. When clicking the Disable App Udate there opens a application text with on top GitHub and activities from M.Kaply Show/ Home Button Policy Strange that it says Disable Firefox Updates. Is this application installed by you? Are you perhaps 'the organisation'? Please let me know if this is safe or not.

Enhanced Tracking prevents me from logging into Firefox. All attempts while on would lead to a "500 server error" that was noted and to be looked into. After a 24hr time frame of the same results, I disabled the 'purple shield' on the series of pages loaded in order to sign into help. That allowed me to successfully sign into help and 'close' the question about Firefox not retaining page zoom setting (privacy.resistFingerprinting TRUE was the culprit). Above was a statement, my question is why would by default Enhanced Tracking prevent mozilla.org support site from working?

Good morning everyone, for at least 6 months now I'm having a lot of problems viewing some sites with Firefox. I have not been able to find common points between these sites, I only noticed that many are made in Wordpress.

Anyway when I load these sites Firefox takes 3 to 5 minutes to display them. Sometimes the screen is white, other times the wheel turns. Any other browser, of course, plays the same sites immediately.

To complicate things I have to add that the same sites sometimes start loading normally again, and then stop loading. But not all of them. I mean that one starts working again, another one continues not to work and vice versa.

I've done dozens of tests without being able to solve the problem in any way. I list them:

1. Deactivated all the extensions, even uninstalled, loaded Firefox in safe mode and nothing to do. 2. Uninstalled Firefox completely (cleaning %appdata%, windows registry and program folders) and reinstalled clean, no go. 3. Installed various versions of Firefox Developer, 32 bit, ESR, normal, even portable, always without extensions and with standard configuration and nothing to do. 4. Unplugged the network cable and connected in thetering / wifi with the 4G of the cell phone and nothing to do. 5. Tried a neighbor's wifi and nothing to do. 6. Wiped the pc, registry, uninstalled any software that wasn't absolutely necessary and nothing to do. 7. Started Windows in safe mode and nothing to do. 8. Uninstalled Eset Antivirus (I have a friend who has the same antivirus anyway and he can see any site perfectly with Firefox), deactivated Windows Defender as well and nothing to do. 9. I've followed the advice of dozens of articles modifying about:config in various ways (always making a backup first) and nothing to do. 10. Checked the pc with 4 different antivirus, antirootkit, antimalware and it was perfectly clean.

At this point I don't know what to do except give up using Firefox after a decade, because the problem seems to increase, in the sense that the sites that I can't load are more and more.

If someone can help me to avoid it I am very grateful...

Firefox has recently started blocking my on-line banking website. I use Firefox DuckDuckGo as my default browser and it worked fine until 2 weeks ago. However, I can use GOOGLE or Microsoft Internet Explorer to do my on-line banking which I do not like to do. They don't require the 2 step security access code that I use to get with Firefox on my cell phone. HOW CAN I FIX THIS? Navy Federal Credit Union technical support it was a Firefox browser issue and they could not help. Can you help me?

I can see a lot of items in pop-up menu comparable to old Firefox version. I don't need a lot of them. They just embarrassed me. How could I remove them? I can not find an option to add/remove items to pop-up menu.

I can see that some items in this pop-up menu are not visible at different web sites.

I don't need following items: "Open Image in New tab" "copy image link" "email image" "save page to pocket"

How to remove them?

Thanks

I thought perhaps the cat had hit some keyboard shortcut (goodness it would be nice to be able to disable those!) and removed "Bookmark This Page" from the Bookmarks pull-down menu, but based on the number of people asking the same question, I now suspect that the latest Firefox update somehow removed it. I have seen MANY people asking about this, invariably answered with how to work around it being missing by using a tiny blob of an icon (which tiny meaningless blob among many, my not-so-young eyes are not certain - apparently it looks like a star). WE WANT IT BACK. Please put "Bookmark This Page" back where it belongs - in the pulldown menu called "Bookmarks". Or tell us how to put it there ourselves. Leave it in the teeny blob menu also if you like - maybe there's someone out there who actually likes it there. But please, for the love of usability, put that entry back on the list of things you can do from the Bookmarks pull-down menu! Not all of your users are 20-somethings with perfect eyesight!
