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?

Running FF for Mac 85.0.2 but has issue in previous version. The history on the search bar is not updating. Previously, the list of sites would appear depending on how often they were accessed. i.e. most popular would be first on the list and the order would change depending on usage. That list no longer updates. There is still a list but it never changes. I have cleared forms and search history but the same list keeps coming back.

When I click on a story link, the initial video at the top of the story will load, but nothing below it. No pictures will load, nothing for links to Instagram, Twitter etc. All I see is a blank square, with "loading lines" scrolling through... I prefer Firefox, but use Safari now, because it doesn't have this loading problem. What can I do ro resolve this issue? Thanks....

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

Hi, after resetting my Firefox browser, every time I try to print something, I get this popup which is different than it used to be. In addition, the Color Mode dropdown doesn't work, as it will only print in color instead of selecting black & white. I would like to go back to the older popup which is shown in second image which works correctly and has more options.

Hi

When I try to print emails in the Outlook webpage it takes 1minute 30 secs for the print dialogue box to come up after you press the button.

I have followed both steps of Firefox help listed below:

Reset Firefox printer setting

Several printer issues can be resolved by resetting Firefox's printer settings:

   Type about:config in the address bar and press Return.
   A warning page may appear. Click Accept the Risk and Continue to go to the about:config page.
   In the Search field, type print_printer.
   Click the Delete Fx71aboutconfig-DeleteButton button to the right of the print_printer preference.
   Click the Firefox menu at the top of the screen and select Quit Firefox. 

When you start Firefox again, try printing the page that you had problems with previously. Note: In older versions of Firefox print.print_printer was the preference name. The old preference name may exist along with the new name. That old preference can be removed by clicking the Delete Fx71aboutconfig-DeleteButton button. Restart Firefox and print a page after performing the reset. That preference won't reappear. The newer preference will only be available.

Reset all Firefox printer settings

If the above steps did not work, you may want to reset all of Firefox's printer settings:

   Open your profile folder:
       From the Help menu, select Troubleshooting Information. The Troubleshooting Information tab will open.
       Under the Application Basics section next to Profile Folder, click Show in Finder. A window will open that contains your profile folder. 
   Note: If you are unable to open or use Firefox, follow the instructions in Finding your profile without opening Firefox.
   Click the Firefox menu at the top of the screen and select Quit Firefox.
   In your profile folder, copy the prefs.js file to another folder to make a backup of it.
   Open the original prefs.js file in a text editor (such as TextEdit).
   Remove all lines in the prefs.js file that start with print_ and save the file. 

In fact, actually I have two Prefs files: prefs.js and prefs-1.js. The printer I am using is listed in the second file prefs-1.js.

Any ideas please? Thanks

Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

Facebook Videos embeded in a Clients site using the either the FB provided code for iFrame or the JavaScript SDK methods will not display or play in Firefox on Mac OS ( Mac OS Mojave 10.14.16, & High Sierra 10.13.6 with Firefox 85.0 & 85.0.1 (64-bit) ).

Both Methods work without issue (or modification/disabling of plugins) in Safari or Chrome, and on Windows (WIN 7) and in iPad OS.

Please note it is not realistic, or reasonable to have website visitors disable Adblockers such as AdBlock plus and allowing all third party cookies - this is FACEBOOK we're talking about. Note: AdBlock plus is disabled on the test page - but the Clients site is a Shopify site, so must work for all typical visitors - a non-technical audience. However it is worth noting that Firefox is NOT my browser of choice for streaming media sites - Netflix. Hulu, etc, due to playback issues. However, YouTube embedding and videos and streams inside FB itself does seem to work
