Is there some way to pass POST data when navigating between containers? As someone who uses searX as their search engine, which uses POST requests to perform searches, it is very inconvenient that I cannot make searches when the site that I'm searching from is in one container and the search engine I'm using is set to open in a different container, as the data containing my search request does not actually get passed.

I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

why does firefox refuse to open because unsafe document etc, and when the same(within firefox) is entered into google surch, the respective page is available, can be opened and confirms that it is a safe page. No problem to open in edge. The various tipps do not help. antivirus is F-secure. cleaning cookies and cache did not help either.

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

Why does FF forget 'always do this' settings from session to session?

whenever FF opens/saves a particular file type, i set the 'Do this from now on' button for that file type or when i download a link that passes to a handler application, i click the 'always do this' button on the little toast dropdown. i do this because, shocker, i ALWAYS WANT FIREFOX TO DO THAT. but when i close the session, either manually or via reboot, when i launch back into FF, it asks me all over again for the same things.

now this crap has been a problem since time immemorial (since FF 26, IIRC) and it's always broken. when the hell is this going to be fixed, now that we have ONE MORE dialog that stupidly asks us to set a pref it has no intention of keeping?

somebody is gong to say 'make a new profile' or 'refresh FF', but none of that has ever worked and it doesn't work now because i've literally just setup six brand new machines and ALL OF THEM have this behaviour, ranging from Firefox, Firefox Nightly, Firefox Focus, right to Firefox Developer Edition. all of them fresh, right out of the box.

if anyone knows how to make this bloody behaviour stick, please let me know, otherwise the dev team needs to just remove the ask... or fix it and make the blasted thing do its job. >:(

I discovered this issue this evening, no idea how long it's been going on. I opened Task Manager to see if a program was running (not firefox) . Firefox WAS open, and I had one window open in firefox.. BUT next to Firefox, was (7) so I expanded. It showed 7 instances. With only 2 programs open, (firefox and task Manager) the amount of memory it was using was surprising.. Using 64 bit version of Firefox, 86.0

I tried "ending task" on the instances that were using 0% CPU, but I was only able to close 2-3 before ALL of them closed. I would then reopen and it would be 6, 7, or 8 instances I tried 3 times.

Can someone enlighten me as to why it is doing this?

Hello

I have installed the dictionary for another language and when I right click the menu is there, however if I try to change the language it disappears. If I click again it's gone.

I have tried that if I disable UBlock Origin, the menu comes up, but I am not able to change language anyway. If I refresh, the menu disappears again.
