Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

As the feedback option via help is unavailable at the moment, I'd like to give feedback on ways to improve the new Print Preview dialogue box. After using it for a while, I quite like the general concept, however the design has some flaws that could make it more user friendly. This is my wishlist. It would be great for others to add their ideas but please avoid the negative option of going back to the old dialogue, as that has been expressed in many other threads.

1. Add Simplify Page - I think this is in progress 2. Condense the dialogue box, there is too much white space. If it was more compact, every option could be visible removing the need for the "More settings.." extra click. 3. Rework/expand the Pages options. Currently there is only "all" or "custom". Bring it into line with the Windows dialogue and offer "Page 1" and "Selection". Maybe also a drop down list. In essence, having to type the specific pages should be the last resort. 4. The ability to choose the printer's "Tray" is missing (or hidden too well). 5. When the user is trying to choose a scaling option eg 80% or 90%, if the number is entered and then "enter" pressed, suddenly the document starts to print. Often scaling takes some trial and error, and pressing "enter" should not send the document to the printer. 6. The Scaling option should be higher in the box. It is more frequently used than Orientation etc. 7. I would prefer (others may disagree) that the dialogue default to the settings on the printer, regardless of what was changed last time. Instead of being confident that the page will default to my normal printing settings (eg tray 2, greyscale, one-sided etc), now I have to check the printer settings for every print, because it has probably remembered one small change made for the previous print session.

Please add to the list if you have constructive suggestions, or disagree with mine, and hopefully the feedback will be picked up...

Hi all,

Have a new Dell XPS, using Chrome as my primary browser.. however its a pig on power consumption. I recently switched back to Windows, was a iOS user for last 10 years.. Remember the good Windows XP Firefox days...

I am unable to go back using the track pad, my gesture when I swipe with two fingers from left to right doesn't work... However this works just fine on MS Edge, or on Chrome. I am able to scroll up and down, and zoom in and out of text using my track pad, but my back gesture doesn't work... Has anyone had this issue before?

All the best, GB

The firefox browser does not prompt to select a valid user client authentication certificate (stored in the Windows cert store under Personal User certs) for access to sites. This means the browser can not be used for certificate based MFA.

Changing the browser to use system certs (security.enterprise_roots.enabled = True) does not help resolve the issue

In recent version Firefox blocks all popups in the private mode even on sites, where I have popups enabled in normal mode. I am pretty sure it is a new behavior. Popups can be enabled even in private mode, but it is not saved. In some earlier version Firefox in the private mode used to apply popup settings from both private and normal mode. Is there any way to get this behaviour back except downgrade ?

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!

In Twitter, when I use the Copy link to Tweet button and then try to paste the link to share in Gmail it fails to show (it is there, but invisible). If I copy the link into another document and then redo cut and paste into Gmail it works OK. It is Firefox specific and something to do with the ?s=20 part of the link... if I change the 20 to 21 then it works fine. And if I copy the link in Edge it works fine. Can anyone help? Thanks

Hi there, I'm using xero which works great in firefox except for the "projects" option. It works fine if I use another browser, but if I click on projects within xero while using firefox it simply doesn't load. I've done a log me in session with xero help and they tell me that everything is fine from their end so it must be a problem/block within firefox (surprise surprise - "not our problem"). It was working fine up until about 6 weeks ago. Anyone else come across this? It's a pain as firefox is my preferred browser but I have to use another browser to get full functionality out of xero. Thanks in advance!

Which version of Firefox do I have to revert to that will allow me to put tabs under the address bar and not have tabs the same colour as the menu bar? I had the current version of Firefox installed, but after doing a Windows reset to the 20H2 version of Windows 10, the even newer version seems to be less customisable.

Hi,

I wanted to check my historic but I couldn't access it. I first thought it had disappeared or something but it seems that the "show historic" button is actually hidden by my task bar. Or, in other words, the tab is too long.

I can't find anything in the setting to change it.

Thanks in advance if you know how to solve this problem.
