Firefox 88 - very slow to create print preview

When I try to print from Firefox 88 on my Mac Laptop running OSX 10.12.6 the new print preview window takes a very long time to load the preview before I can print. I could not find a work around.

I tried switching to the Classic print system via (print.tab_modal.enabled - False) Now I don't have the preview to deal with so I can print immediately like I used to. However, if I try to open a PDF in Preview from the Print Dialog window, it takes a very long time to load the preview which it did not do in earlier versions of Firefox.

I am surmising that one of the Firefox updates added the print preview function which doesn't work quite right on my Mac.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Andy

So after 13 years, Mozilla has changed the shortcut for "Copy link" from A to L.

This is an INSANE move! Copying links isn't some obscure power command, it's a basic, everyday function that everyone needs to use. Who doesn't have to copy URL links from time to time?

Moving the key to L makes the shortcut so much more difficult to use now. You're required to move your left hand a long way, and look down at the keys. It takes forever and interrupts the flow of browsing the web. It's stupid. Why not change the key to C? Isn't that logical?

I wish I could give Mozilla feedback about this, but sadly I can't.

Can someone please tell me how to change this back WITHOUT installing an extension. If Mozilla have just suddenly changed this key without even giving users an option to change it back, that is terrible.

I've already tried toggling the "Enhanced Protection" switch off and on to no effect. I don't see any option for enabling/disabling permissions for audio/video in the address bar as appear on other sites offering video or audio. Thanks for any remedies.

Hey there,

for a while now we have problems loading our page https://risofort.press/ in firefox: the header will always load, the body of the main page and sub pages will infrequently load, and after having loaded once it will not reload for a long time (like, weeks). all of this works in other browsers. After contacting our host and trying some stuff like deactivating plugins to see if one them is causing it, I am realizing that perhaps it is the way our theme is loaded by firefox - a similiar issue was resolved here: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1320526#answer-1381654

However I can't figure out what part of our website is the one that is keeping the main area to be loaded, or become visible, rather.

Any thoughts on this very welcome, thank you! Will also pass this question on to the theme authors.

Thanks in advance, L.

It seems the folks there at Firefox central enjoy wrecking people's experience by frequently releasing new browsers that breaks what already in place. What the hell is wrong with you guys...?? Are you secretly employed by Microsoft and/or Google....?? Seriously, this is no way to run a browser company. It is, however, a great way to ruin one. Give us a break, and stop breaking our browsers. You ruin our experience, and you do it on a semi regular basis. It's all well and fine to release new stuff, with new features, but for the love of God if it's gonna break what we already have, at the very least offer us a way to keep what we have, and have it supported even in a minimal way, and branch off the new option. I get your fears, you fear that not enough people will opt for the new one like that, and you're probably right. That however, should tell you something.

We loyally support your project. That should be worth something. Thanks.

Firefox will not update, but continuaaly load unstoppable popups suggesting I download and install a new copy. This is "Firefox for Acer". One other question about this was answered "I assume that you can ask this at the Acer support forum as they should know this best." wgich means, I suppose, that the responder doesn't knowm but likes answering questions.

Does anyone know? Is this why Firefox fails to update? Will re-installing eliminate the problem? Is there any way to stop the popups?

Ghostery has started a totally annoying adblocking stats popup in the lower right corner of the screen. A previous thread here stated, Contact the developers. There is no way to do that that I could find. For now I have deleted Ghostery and and am happy to leave it deleted. But I would also be OK with having it back because I have an account.

Any ideas on this ?

FF keyboard shortcut "move tab to start" (ctrl + shift + home) does not work for me. I've tried using my regular FF profile (a dozen addons or so) and a VANILLA profile with no addons. The same is true for Ctrl+Shift+End shortcut.

i've also tried on two different keyboards.

so, is it me, is the documentation wrong or is this broken?

thanks

For several weeks, every time I open up Firefox I get this bar across the bottom saying:

"It looks like you haven't started Firefox in a while. Do you want to clean it up for a fresh, like-new experience? And by the way, welcome back! [Refresh Firefox]"

Where the [Refresh Firefox] is the button to make it happen.

First, I don't know what it means about not starting Firefox for a while. I open it every day.

Second, I don't want to refresh, and I don't want to be asked every day. How can I get rid of this question?

Thanks!
