ff 81.0b5, last updated 03 sep 20. problem: after 9 reliable years, Canon ImageClass MF3240 printer suddenly started printing ALL blank pages when printing from FF. printer knows how many pages to print, just they are all blank. printer runs *normally* off Tbird, Notepad, Adobe Acrobat, etc., and also from another browser (Opera). yesterday i noticed for the first time that when i call for a print of a web page (FF), i get a really weird looking Print Preview page that i have never seen before. after choosing which pages i want to print (Custom), i click print and it spends a long time sending the print job to printer. then i get all blank pages. sometimes the Preview page on the display goes blank, too. sometimes i get a popup error message 'there was an error in printing' OWTTE. the directions in FF Help for printing are obviously written for the Print preview Page i WAS seeing before yesterday 03 Sep 20. they do NOT reflect the choices shown on the new, strange-looking Print Preview.

what i'v done so far re-start FF re-start FF in Safe re-start computer read Troubleshooting Info in about:support https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox -completed steps 1-9 "reset FF printer setting" completed steps 1-4 haven't yet had the nerve to "Reset ALL FF printer settings" (too scared to mess with the prefs.js file, so far)


any ideas? thanks

The world is not-so-slowly getting undermined by sophisticated technical attacks on our understanding of reality (pretty much any topic - take politics as an example). One of the newer technology is the ability to create, through sophisticated digital editing tools that utilize artificial intelligence, videos that simulate public figures doing or saying whatever the author wishes. There are DeepFake pornographic movies with popular actors and politicians. They run the gamut of ones imagination. Without specific tools to detect and block such products, we're all just sitting ducks in a rising tide of disinformation.

I would like to see a tool embedded in Firefox that detects and notifies the user/viewer of deepfake graphics: photo or video images.

There are of course issues. Performance is certainly one. This might be mitigated by having images buffered in the cloud where they could be analyzed with high performance hardware - then they could be downloaded to our smartphones and other devices. People with high end hardware could do this locally as an option.

I could go on, but I think I've summarized the need.

Here's a tool that Microsoft just released: https://techcrunch.com/2020/09/02/microsoft-launches-a-deepfake-detector-tool-ahead-of-us-election/

So, I have been looking for lots of solutions but none of them worked. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and want to install and update Firefox Dev automatically. I tried some ways:

  • By package manager:

First, I uninstalled the default Firefox, removed its ppa repo then added Firefox Dev ppa and installed. Opened up and it was still normal Firefox.

  • By downloading .deb file from Mozilla:

I could install by this way but every time has an update, Firefox will notify me "Firefox can't udpate to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox". I also have Chrome to be installed via .deb, it can update automatically. Why Firefox can't? It's very annoying that every time I open Firefox, it pops the notification up. It's impossible that every time Firefox has an update (which occurs regularly!) I have to go to homepage, download then install it manually. I can write a script to update Firefox but I want an official support from Mozilla.

Hi all,

I've been having problems with firefox lagging constantly. General browsing around feels laggy - and opening new tabs pretty much causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. During this time firefox causes the CPU to spike to 100% usage.

I've been using firefox for years on this computer with no issues. Hardware is pretty good (i7 5820k, 64GB of ram and an SSD).

So far I have tried:

  • Running in safe mode
  • Using a different profile
  • Downgrading to an older firefox
  • Changing allowed CPU cores from 8, to 4
  • Updated graphic card drivers to latest version

None of these work, and I'm getting a bit tired of the constant slow downs. Chrome works flawlessly, as does all my other software...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

PDFs are always downloaded and local copy opened instead of in-browser

Hello, at some point in the recent updates (with FF 80? I can't say as I have skipped a few updates over summer and only recently updated again to the most recent Beta), the way in which my Firefox browser handles PDFs has changed. After quite a bit of research and scouring through other threads I haven't been able to find a way to reverse it. I do hope there is...

-PREVIOUS BEHAVIOUR- 1) When I clicked on a link to randomsite.com/example.pdf, FF would open the PDF within the browser, either in the same tab or (if I requested it) in a new tab or window. The URL line would show "randomsite.com/example.pdf 2) The only exception was where a website had forced the PDF to be downloaded, in which case the dialogue asking me how I wanted to open the file would appear. In earlier days, in that case I had to pick Adobe or Preview or similar, more recently the dialogue also allowed me to open the file in Firefox. In that case, the URL line would show the local URL, i.e. "file:///Users/Michael/Downloads/example.pdf"

-CURRENT BEHAVIOUR- 1) What now happens is for any PDF I click on whatsoever, Firefox forces me to download it. Depending on what I put in about:preferences, I either get the dialog window asking me to make a choice, or it directly opens a new Firefox tab, but crucially it still downloads the file and shows me the local URL of it.

-WHAT I WOULD LIKE- A way to revert to the previous behavior where for 90% of PDFs, I never downloaded them but just viewed them in-browser. I look at a large number of different PDF files online every day for my work and I certainly don't want to download all of them and having to de-clutter my download folder all the time.

-WHAT I HAVE TRIED- - I went to "Applications" in about:preferences. I can set the relevant entries for PDF files to "Always ask" or to "Open in Firefox" but even with the latter set, it still downloads them and opens the local copy, rather than not saving a local copy in /Downloads/ at all. - I have checked in about:config and "pdfjs.disabled" is set to "false" as it should be

I don't think I have any extensions or add-ons related to PDFs, in any case I haven't installed any new ones recently.

Any clues appreciated, my overflowing Downloads folder is grateful.

Firefox Lockwise passwords (no reason at all) just disappears in the browser more often now and randomly. I have wasted countless hours researching possible solution via mozilla support and the Internet. The only ways I can recover them to my browser is from my Firefox Android. However. I must log out of sync in both PC & Android browser then sign back in. Tired of doing this. Now. Even more recently. Most my websites I sign into now does not work. The ID and password is correct but when I click sign in. Nothing happens. This newer problem is spreading to more and more my regular sites.. Do not bother to answer. I have used Firefox from the begining. I see the writing on the wall. Am now using EDGE. So far, so good.

I decided to use Firefox Developer Edition on my Linux machine (Fedora 32) as I migrate from Windows for Web Development, but I have hit a wall with it with Gnome Extensions. I get the following error when I attempt to modify or even view extensions.gnome.org content:

Although GNOME Shell integration extension is running, native host connector is not detected. Refer documentation for instructions about installing connector.

The only resolve I found for this is Chrome-based so I do not feel that is the issue I am having. The browser works fine other than this, at least from what I can tell. Is there a way to use the extensions? Should this issue be a precursor to things on Fedora that should keep me on Windows for the browser? Please advise, I want to make the full move to Linux soon.

on a Google meeting, that is, a meeting created in Google Calendar that generates those automated Google meeting URLs:

when I share my screen, I also want my mouse cursor to be shared, because it's very useful to use it as a laser pointer so the audience in the meeting knows which part of the screen they should be looking at.

I couldn't find any feature at all within Firefox or inside the Google meeting settings [as the meeting is happening] to turn on my mouse cursor sharing.

On Chrome the mouse cursor is shared by default when someone shares their screen, which is desired behaviour.

It's a local problem with Firefox because other co-workers who have identical computers to mine use Chrome and I always see their mouse cursor when they share their screens. I'm on Windows 10.
