After the most recent update, v.103, any image-based PDF that I print out is extremely oversized despite appearing correctly in the print preview window. I have tested other browsers and did not have this issue. I have also reset my Firefox print preferences and my printers/drivers to ensure it's not that either. Does anyone know what could be causing this, besides an issue with the new update?

Why is Firefox limiting my file name to 3-5 characters instead of the full name as the original document? My Gmail Workspace account is a business account so I need to retain proper naming conventions and original names for files, but Firefox seems to be shortening the file names, and I'm having to completely rename. I can't find any information on how to override this if it's a setting or if anyone else is having the same problem.

I am running Firefox 103.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.4.

Thanks in advance.

Like in

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224759

my twitch tab stutters when i change from a different tab to the twitch tab. I don't have it everytime, it's really inconsistent. It appears that my video moves forward some seconds. Suggestions like in the link didn't helped for me.

I tried: - set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled back to true and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false set network.http.throttle.version to 1, restart,

 set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to true again and restart -> nope

- set network.http.throttle.version to 0 and restart -> nope.

I'm really helpful for any ideas. Thanks in advance!

I've got web-extension proxying requests to the local server via nativeMessaging.

If server response with 307 and location "moz-extension://{ext-id}/page.html" browser displays it well. But when I try to refresh the page, error "Access to the file was denied" is occurred. Refreshing in any other cases works well:

 - direct jump to "moz-extension://{ext-id}/page.html"
 - displaying "moz-extension://{ext-id}/page.html" with browser.tabs.update

Such behavior was in several previous versions too, not just in the last 103 and but I didn't tested if it was always like this.

If I doing something wrong or this is browser issue?

Hello,

Have recently lost the ability to print from Firefox. From the File Menu, from "3 lines" in the upper right, from ctrl-p. All result in spinning diagram and "Preparing Preview" and then just never getting further. Cannot think of any change I made in the last few days that would have caused this. Initially thought it was only when trying to print PDFs like a bank statement but now I see it is any web content I try to print.

Please help.

Thank you.

Why, with not very many active open windows, and just after opening, is FF using 175% of my CPU, not counting all the separate listings in my Activity Monitor. Plus it's using nearly all 16 GBs of my RAM. With every new update, I pray it will mean the browser will just work, and not use up all my computer's resources, but it just never does. Pretty soon, more & more of us will just give up on this browser, which used to work better, years ago, and has only gone downhill since.

I have just booted up my laptop and opened Firefox with three tabs viewing mostly text pages. Firefox has become unresponsive. Task manager shows Firefox running 19 sub tasks using nearly 1GB of Memory... see attached. This has occurred a few times recently, twice when filling online forms which meant having to start the form again from the beginning... infuriating. Is this an issue with the latest version?... I have a 'Congrats., you are using latest version' a couple of days ago. Thanks. Patrick

Hi Guys,

over the pas month i've been gettign an error where my windows 10 apps slowly stop working, so it will start with the news and interests (clicking on it just does not seem to work, then the search will not work again clicking on it will not work, then eventually the start menu will stop working.

now the reason i'm posting here is for weeks i've trying to pin down the cause and today after rebuilding my windows porfile again on friday its happened again (ps the only way to resolve this issue is to rebuild my windows profile as reinstalling windows apps and store do not work), and i've looked at programs and features and firefox updated itself today.

so my thoughts are its when firefox updates itself that my windows apps start to corrupt, so has anyone else experienced this and do any of you guys have any suggestions on how to stop this happening?

i hope this makes sense

Hello. I've had this problem for over a month now ever since I switched to Firefox from Chrome.

Problem: Every once in a while, Firefox will suddenly be really slow and not load a page. When it finally does load, all text on the website is in the first font alphabetically on my computer. (I tested this by adding/removing fonts on my computer to confirm it was doing this and not just loading a specific font. I have a lot of fonts because I'm a graphic designer, and it's always picking the first font I have when they are all listed in alphabetical order.) This problem can occur on any website.

When the problem occurs: I thought it might be occurring when the computer or Firefox was low on memory, because the problem happens a lot more often when I am working (and thus have lots of programs and tabs open) than just browsing. I started working with both Windows's Task Manager and Firefox's Task Manager open so that when the problem occurs I can check to see what is happening. Memory usage when the problem happens is kind of high, usually around 50-70%, with Firefox being the most or second-most memory-intensive task in Windows Task Manager. But no other programs on my computer are slowing down when Firefox is, and Firefox's Task Manager is not showing any one tab/add-on using more than "Medium" usage. (Although notably, the tab that is having the problem is not showing up in Firefox's Task Manager at all.)

What I have tried:

  • checking and unchecking "use hardware acceleration" settings in Firefox. (It doesn't seem to matter, the problem still happens)
  • changing the default font settings in Firefox
  • closing and reopening Firefox. (This does fix the problem temporarily. After reopening Firefox and restoring the session, all pages load normally. But the problem will happen again later on a different site.)
  • restarting the computer (I shut down every night and turn the computer back on the morning. This problem still happens almost every day and often multiple times a day.)
  • Having fewer tabs open. (That does seem to decrease the chances of the problem happening, but it does not decrease those chances to zero. The problem has occurred with as few as five total tabs open.)
  • Checking add-ons (I'm not using very many add-ons in the first place—uBlockOrigin, Don't Accept webP, I don't care about cookies, and AutoDelete Cookies.) All of them are showing no or low usage in Firefox's Task Manager.

I am running Windows 10, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9750H CPU @ 2.60GHz, with 16GB of RAM.

Has anyone else ever experienced this issue? Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm really sick of having to close and reopen Firefox in the middle of work.
