I've been using PDFcreator for years. Just recently, when I print to PDF from Firefox, it has started producing PDFs that do not contain searchable text (ie where the text from the webpage becomes a raster image).

PDFcreator still works properly with all other software (including Chrome). Can anyone recommend a way I can make Firefox start behaving itself?

Thanks!

Win 10/FF I reinstalled FF after automatically downloading 73.0 and I had a terrible day on computer yesterday. SLOW. It was fine today, for some reason, so there are no issues I can detect. Because I have an old laptop, should I download the 32-bit version? I spent a lot of time restoring FF, even though I thought everything would rollover. Can I do the change w/o reinstalling everything???

Thank you.

I have just migrated to a new (Win 10 Pro) machine, and suddenly Zoom meetings don't start. On my old machine, I would go to a meeting and Zoom would start automatically within a few seconds. Now I have to download and run a one-time app for every meeting.

In Options > General > Applications, I have "zoommtg" associated with "Use Zoom meetings (default)". In Windows "assoc .zoommtg" reports ".zoommtg=ZoomLauncher", and "ftype ZoomLauncher" reports ZoomLauncher="C:\Users\me\AppData\Roaming\Zoom\bin\Zoom.exe" "--url=%1". This is all exactly the same as my old machine reports.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

I am unable to log in to ANY page requiring my password when using Firefox. Chrome works fine for me. I don't want to reset passwords as I just went thru and did those as a regular update. What has happened to Firefox that it won't let me use any of my sites I need to log in to?

I'm having similar issues to described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1090728

The search bar in the "Awesome bar" has stopped offering search suggestions, either from my search history or from Google itself. When I control-click in the search bar, "search suggestions" has a check next to it, and it is also ticked in the Preferences.

This started last week when i migrated to a new iMac.

I went through all of the troubleshooting steps described in the article above but still no suggestions in the address bar.

I'd like to continue using Firefox but this is a deal breaker. What can i do?

Having posted on the forum before, some of you know me and might know that I'm visually handicapped. Well I just moved over to Windows 10 this week and have been setting up my browser. Some of you know I like to "email links" to myself in others. Setting everything back up has been a chore but not overly difficult. There are some new quirks with Windows 10. That said, II was organizing the Overflow menu like I had it before, however, the first time I used the "email link' function was a little odd. At least at the time, it wasn't linked to the account I normally used, and I had to go through a set up process, that as you can see, defaulted this Mail program that is linked Microsoft (doesn't surprise me) and honestly, if I send using that program, and I sent things to two Gmail accounts as well as my personal IIP account, and I never get them. I could probably call Microsoft and they might rfix it, but it is Not the email acocunt I want to use to "email links" so I would like to disassociated that function with the Microsoft email and change the path to the email account that I normally use and that people are more familiar with. Is there anyway of doing this short of uninstalling Firefox and do a clean install again? Thank you.

I'm new in Firefox Developer Edition. I have a web app which has been developed by asp.net mvc and c#. There is a code to upload a file to a network path by clients on an internal server. While debugging the code, it works without any issue on Chrome but on Firefox D.E. I got access denied error while accessing the network path. (I spent 2 hrs to figure it out that the issue is being caused by Firefox D.E)

Does anyone face this issue before? is there any solution to fix it?

I got a notification mail that my question here got a reply.

I tried to open the forum thread to post another comment, but it took me a while to find the link in the mail. It is down in the small print (the footer).

Can it be made more prominent? Usually the topic title is also a link to the forum web page. Can the firefox forum email be changed like that?

PS: The "ask new question" link/button is also hard to find.

I've been using Firefox since few weeks ago and I really like this browser except one thing. My first language is Korean but I wanted to use Firefox in English so I changed the first language to English and Korean to the alternate language. Now, when I type something in English, some words will be automatically change into Korean even if it is a real English word and makes no sence in Korean.

For exemple,

When I type "digital" and press the spacebar, it changes to "아햣미" which means nothing but typed in the same way on my keyboard layout. Also, I cannot type "artificial" too. I thought this is because of the spell checking so I turend it off but it is still not fixed.

I need to download a Visio file with the file extension .vsdx from a program online where I must save the file to my computer. However, Firefox automatically labels the content type as a Firefox document, and adds htm at the end of the file. It does not matter if I change the document type to Visio, this continues to happen. It will even save the file as Firefox document, .vsdx.htm. Yes, I have checked my program defaults.

I really just need someone to help me change the code to make Firefox recognize that .vsdx is a forking Visio Drawing file, and not a Firefox document.

Thank you in advance.

This is a problem connected with SCROLLING. There are three standard ways of scrolling , while surfing and looking through site pages: 1. Use the Mouse roller 2. Use the left click press on the mouse, simultaneously press and move the scroll bar 3. There are two Scroll bar junctions - one at top and other at base. The mouse left click button may be clicked - either in steps or on a continued click... to make the page move ... in steps or on a continuous movement.

The QUESTION here is: While we have this Last No.3 above facility in UBUNTU-Mate, such facility is not seen in UBUNTU, XUBUNTU, LUBUNTU, KUBUNTU etc. WHY?

Can we not have the same facility in the other OS too?
