It seems that since the last update none of the available screen schemes / contrast schemes allow for me to see the input mask boxes. (Of course today with this support page there is an exception but....) I have wasted hours trying to read and adjust and end with only an attitude. HELP

Hi,

I recently created a new profile in Firefox as I regularly do, as a consequence I found that the "Page Setup" menu option has been removed in a past release.

I can't fathom why this has been removed, I "print" plenty of PDF's and like to customise the Headers/Footers based on what I'm "printing".

Searching for a fix suggests either installing a 3rd Party Add-on or "hacking" the "about:config". This is not user friendly in the slightest for something that has been around for literal decades.

Forcing a user to install an Add-on or even go through "about:config" and set "print.show_page_setup_menu" to true is bonkers!

Yes, bonkers!

Please restore the "Page Setup" option as default, please don't remove it or stealth hide it.

Sincerely,

Jay

Hello,

I am running Firefox v101.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux (Pop!_OS, installed as a flatpak). I am using the default system theme in dark mode, though switching to the Firefox dark theme or other themes does not change anything. When I allow the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, etc.) to be present, the browser tabs on the next line are aligned correctly, going all of the way to the left. When I uncheck the Menu Bar, however, a gap appears to the left of the tabs. I have not seen this behavior on Firefox in other environments (Debian, RHEL, Windows), and I'm wondering if there's a way I can remove that gap. I have attached screenshots showing how the tabs are aligned with and without the Menu Bar.

Thanks so much!

I have installed two dictionaries, "English (United Kingdom)", and "French". However, when I go to check a spelling, (right click/Languages over the suspect word), I am offered a third dictionary choice, "English (United States), which I do not want. I have removed the US dictionary and even the language pack but the menu item persists. I can find no way to get rid of it.

Please advise

Hello! Hoping someone can help with this new (to me) issue. I've searched and can't seem to find any articles/threads.

When I open the wifi menu on my laptop, I also see a media player featuring a video I watched three days ago (image attached). I've used my computer several times since then and didn't notice it. It also doesn't appear to be functional, as when I click play, nothing happens.

Is there a setting I'm missing to get this to go away and to prevent it from coming back again?

Thanks in advance!

Greetings, I've checked a few articles in Firefox to help with my question, but none of them are helping. (Here's the main article: http://example.com.) Here's the situation. Say I go to a website's Contact page and click the button to contact someone, a window appears and asks me what app I want to use to open the email. Gmail is my default email, and Firefox is my default browser, and I use Windows 10. When I open the window of options (see attached screenshot) to open the email, and I then click "Choose Other Application" (other than Firefox), I don't see the Gmail app anywhere. I then followed the directions in that link above to check my Windows settings, per its suggestion, which I did ... but in those settings, too, I got to a point where the directions no longer matched what I'm seeing on my screen. I didn't see the Gmail app anywhere. Could you let me know in simple layperson's terms how to open Gmail links in Firefox? I don't have a PhD in computer science, so please keep it very simple. Thanks in advance! Best wishes, Bill

Hello Community.

I've selected an option to open PDF's in Firefox for preview. And if I wanted to download the PDF after preview, I simply clicked the downloab button from the preview app/tab. The files were downloaded with default filename and to the downloads folder without prompts. But since a while ago the dialog where the save location must be selected and filename given for the file opens up after the click of the download button.

How can I change it back to the previous behaviour without having to input filename and select the file download directory?

I am using Ancestry.com - and Firefox keeps trying to autofill fields it has no business with or understanding of. While autofill is handy at times, it's a downright nuisance - making my research way more tedious because I have to continually erase its autofilled data as erroneous. Is there a simple and temporary way to stop autofill?

Various website that contain dynamic content are not being rendered by Firefox to display that content. This is happening with websites that provide transportation information and ticketing, including Amtrak and Peter Pan Bus Lines . It is also happening with a genealogical website, FamilyTreeDNA, on pages that should be displaying family tree information. Illustrations of two pages are attached. I have been able to access the information by using Opera on this same computer and operating system, and by using the same version of Firefox installed on a different computer with different operating system. I am not sufficiently proficient with website development to know or understand what type of dynamic content is being generated by these websites, or how Firefox interprets the content. My suspicion is that some Firefox setting has been enabled or disabled, but I do not know which one it would be.

Hi,

I am unable to use the screenshot feature since the update to 102.0 and I don't know why. So far it always worked. I have updated the screenshot item via customizing the toolbar, still it does not respond.

Have you got a solution that works?

Thank you.

I got an email awhile back stating Firefox was going to offer a VPN service, with a 30 free trial offer. MY question is does the Firefox VPN offer a split tunneling option like other VPN services offer? From what I understand, split tunneling is a feature where the VPN service will be active, or connected in one browser but then it would be disabled or disconnected in another browser. Can you please explain if I got that correct? Thank you.

I wanted to get an couple new addons to my firefox browser. But whenever I try to get one i get the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt' whether I save the file and install it in windows, or trey to install at the firefox addons page. I have done multiple re-installs of the latest browser, cleaned every file out of the system, even joined this community in case I have to get some kind of membership to get addons.

I am out of ideas to solve the problem, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet where the 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt'. problem I have is solved. Please help.

Hi I have a problem playing videos available on skynews.com.au where the white rotating dots within the black circle just keep rotating and loading does not occur. I assume this to be a result of a setting problem because it does not occur on another browser on my desktop computer.
