I have many tabs like 200-300. Firefox crashed today. I also have 4GB page file on top of that. Strange! After I restarted Firefox it was using only 6.8GB RAM. Perhaps memory leak. BTW if I have browser.cache.disk.enable set to false. Is page file still used?

Thanks for help.

https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

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

Now, this might have been resolved already or there is a easy solution and I just dont know. But, everytime I use my Laptop in Tablet Mode the OSK will appear for a second upon hitting a Box in which Text can be written. However, it will close after a second.

I already tried turning off ".osk.detect_physical_keyboard" and on again. it didnt change Anything. Nor did changing Settings in the WIndos Settings itself.

can anyone help me with this Issue? It is really annoying and doesnt make Firefox a good option as my standard browser.

Hi

I’ve been trying to access some sites for a couple of weeks or more (from the last update) and an unsafe connection is identified to me. The page has no possibility to send Mozilla any feedback. The paradox is that even the forum Mozillaitalia.org results with an unsafe connection.

What to do in order to be able to enter the sites in which I have always entered and which are now unsafe?

Thank you

A few days ago Microsoft Print to PDF stopped working properly in Firefox 87.0 (64 bit) running in Windows 10. Microsoft Print to PDF functions properly in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Excel/Word/Outlook, etc.

As attached, in Firefox after pressing CTL-P (or select File>Print) the print preview window is displayed. When I click Print a PDF file is created. When I open that file I receive the attached error message advising that the file cannot be opened, etc.

I have executed many of the recommended solutions; none of resolved the issue. I refreshed Firefox; that did not resolve the issue. I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folder in APPDATA rebooted and reinstalled Firefox; that did not resolve the issue.

No recent software installations or upgrades, etc.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations, Bill

deets: v87 via flatpak on debian(buster)

No matter where I save a file the lastdir is always "/run/user/1000/doc/*some random folder name, that changes each time*".

manually changing browser.download.lastDir causes the next attempt to save to go to the desired folder, but a second attempt reverts to /run/user/1000/doc/abcd123.

Has anyone any idea whats going on?

Ok. So i have never ever used MS Edge for logging into FireFox and Mozilla accounts. But low and behold, MSEdge now has these Login and PW's for these accounts.

I had brought up this observation, in the recent past, regarding how MSEdge aggregated all my logins and pw's from FireFox. And the response was for me to use a Master Password.

But this isnt the solution or the issue at hand.

The concern is why does Edge believe it is entitled to aggregate my FireFox PW's? And when does it do so? And how does it tap into the encrypted FF files? Yet, Edge has not aggregated the bookmarks in FF.

Something is not right nor ethical.

Interestingly, perhaps FireFox users that lose their logins and passwords in FireFox browser can tap into MSEdge to restore them? Seems like a reasonable solution.

My Navy Federal Credit Union did a major update to their system today 04/07/2021. After the update I was no longer prevented from logging on w/FF87.0 private window. Saw others having many problems similar to mine & you might mention to them that FF87.0 may now be more advanced than the various systems that they are not able to login to after the FF87.0 update. I was using MSEdge to access my blocked sites & almost went back to FF86.0.1.

Problems with Youtube full screen not working persist. Could be a spyware tool embedded by Google that is broken now. Not a big enough problem to force me to roll back version of FF. Saw many others were having online video problems since update. I don't have an answer for them.

Guessing as privacy protection increases our access problems will also increase as hacks, spies & adware try to battle back. Me? I like my privacy & thank Mozilla folks for their great work. God bless one & all. Stay safe.

Hi, Since we got a new printer at our workshop we have had problems with printer settings reset on both our label printer and our Normal printer.

We have set printer setting on windows and made sure they are correct.

Firefox changes our label printer settings back from lenght 50 to 296,9 and back to portrait. And when we use our label printer our normal printer changes back from landskape to potrait and from A4 to Letter. This problem started when we got a new printer, worked fine with our old printer.

It's been months now. I thought it was probably a known issue or a conflict with any of my extensions but I still haven't figured out a way to solve it.

Have tried re-installing the browser, I even switched to a new linux distro and everything was reset, I still have the issue.

The problem is - everything works but the ability to select/copy multiple blocks when using WordPress editor (tested it on three sites with the latest WordPress version where I write) does not work only when utilizing the mouse/cursor.

However, it works when using Brave or Google Chrome.

In either case, when I try to select multiple text blocks using CTRL+Shift+any arrow key on Firefox, it works no matter what. But, using the cursor/mouse, I can't achieve doing that...
