Every time I open firefox I am asked to enter the primary password for firefox Mozilla.

I hit cancel and everything seems to work fine. Why is this showing up? There is not an option to change the pw.

I use keeper as a pw manager. There isn't a mozilla firefox listed.

Any ideas on what to do?

Thanks,

Marty

It displays strange characters on pages including Yahoo mail. The attached screen shot shows a bank email, but it happens with other non-secure stuff too like general web pages. This has been happening with version 81.0 and the previous version. If I open the same page in Chrome, it will display the characters normally. I did see the strange characters appear in Chrome one time, but it happens in FF quite frequently.

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

Heya, as of the latest update 81.0.1 firefox will no longer play youtube videos for me. I've tried running in safe mode, to no avail, and I can watch videos with other browsers.

Anyone know how to fix this? The firefox support page seems fairly adamant that going to a previous version is a bad idea but will it work?

I'm using Firefox browser witn windows 10. When it come to configure the search in Options, I don't any choice. I want to use Google as search engine by default, but in Options, the list of search engines is empty, so the search bar is not working. How can I get search engines in my list, please?

Dear Support,

We are using IE on Windows for our main application and using ActiveX script to print directly to the printer and this is working fine. Now, we need to migrate the application to Ubuntu desktop and use the Firefox as web browser instead of IE but the ActiveX script is not working from Firefox. What is the similar feature in Firefox for Activex?

Shrink-to-fit for printing does not work in Firefox 82.0.2

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

Hello! The audio output of Firefox is always set to the speakers of my laptop. I can't hear videos or music via my headphones or another audio device (Steinberg UR 22 mkII). When I take other browsers or spotify, the audio output is allways on the plugged in devices. But with Firefox I only hear it through laptop speakers.

Why am I now having Bing show up as my default search engine when opening Firefox? I don't want Bing but can't find any way to remove it. My settings are such that Yahoo should show upon opening the browser and Google is set as my default search engine. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, check settings, etc. but I still get the damn Bing showing up as my home page and search engine. Any help would be appreciated.
