If I'm in Firefox and want to print an editable (to highlight) pdf page, I go to "Print" then choose either "Microsoft Print to PDF" or "Wondershare PDF element". What is displayed is never right. It may show the 1st page . . but not the rest; or nothing at all. I was going to try "Nitro Pro 12" but it appears that there is no way to install its "plug-in" now with Firefox.

    The end I want to get to is to have the ability, from within Firefox, to convert or "print" a pdf, that is editable, and will allow highlighting, from the webpage HTML.  It would be nice if it could be done, all at once right from the browser, without having to go through multiple steps - like taking a "screenshot" then uploading that image to some other site - which has also had unsatisfactory results (each "step" having the potential for some other unforeseen screw up or incompatibility).  I've spent a lot of time searching and can't find anything.
    Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there,

I am a long time Firefox User and occasional donor. I also work in Open Source for my day job.

I am just going to ask here for someone to point me to some documentation on bookmarks for Firefox. I cannot understand the logic of bookmarks that appear in 2 different bookmark folders at once when adding a bookmark to only 1 of them.

Also as of late, every time I open firefox, my bookmarks are rearranged or "missing," but a long hunt usually finds it sitting in the unsorted or other bookmarks folder - somehow.

The more i try to fix the issue, the more wonky it gets and I seem to have an ever growing lists of duplicates in unsorted/other bookmarks. I know that its officially Other Book marks now, but i see the old name still being used in the support pages and posts.

Can someone provide a simple, non-engineer, non-developer grandma can understand it place to fix this issue before i just move to another browser to save myself the now daily hunt for my lost bookmarks?

I have a persistent ad banner which appears only on Amazon and Ebay sites, and only in Firefox. It began just a few weeks ago, and for the first few days it was an ad for Ebates, but now it changed to advertise some epsystore.com I attached a screenshot of it. There is no plugin, no add-on which I did not install. I removed and reinstalled Firefox but it did not help. Has anyone seen this? Is there a way to get rid of this thing?

I'm experiencing a long-lived bug, or more possibly file corruption, that became important very recently. Due to another bug in Firefox 65 (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1249037), I need to change cookie permissions. In the preference panel under "Cookies and Site Data", the "Manage Permissions" button doesn't work, although being not gray. After clicking this button, the expected window is not shown visibly. However invisible window still blocks keyboard and mouse input to the original firefox window. Clicking away from the center of the screen or Esc would disengage and possibly close the invisible window. The consequence is that I can't see or change permissions from this window. I have been having this problem for several firefox updates so it's more like a corrupted file. Despite that, cookie permissions still function properly and can be updated through the icon on the address bar.

Although there are workarounds such as through the icon on the address bar, this is really inconvenient and makes it hardly possible to edit cross site or cross subdomain cookie permissions. How do I figure out what is wrong and correct it please? I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.

Since upgrading Windows 10 to latest 1809 Firefox has started to crash tabs when I go to e.g. Youtube, but even it will crash when I go to support.mozilla.org. So right now I'm using Chrome to even write to support question.

I have tried several things like: turning off addons turn off flash entirely reinstall nvidia drivers

None of it does something. At first I thought it has something to do with video but Twitch works, while Youtube doesn't, nor does Netflix. And some websites such as this support website doesn't work either without crashing the tab.

I've submitted the crash report and it can be found here https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/721551db-732a-4017-bfca-b291f0190211

I like to save maximum vertical space in my firefox due to 16/9 screens, to maximise content space. Most of the time, I use left-hand containers (in 16/9 horizontal space is rarely completely occupied) like the Tree-style tabs add-on (very good one, saved me from abandonning firefox when XUL was dropped) to manage my tabs and bookmarks.

In Firefox <65.0, a good trick was to use userChrome.css with a #TabsToolbar {visibility: collapse;} instruction. In Firefox 65.0, this still works but it makes the windows action buttons (minimise, reduce and close) disappear (not the case before).

How do you propose to unlink these button from the vertical-default tabs bar ? NB: they are still displayed when pressing the Alt key, but I'd like to have them permanently. NB: did try safe mode but it seems it doesn't take the userChrome.css as input, rendering the test inneficient

Configuration: firefox 65 on windows 10 / have yet to have a look on my Mint 19.1

Thank you

I like to test my web pages as much as possible at home before uploading to a server. I do this by setting up empty drive partitions for my various sites, so that 'root level" access will work similarly on a server or from the hard drive. So, for example, a line on a page like...

<script src="/scripts/siteScripts2.js"> </script>

or

<link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/fonts/fonts.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/spcPageStyles1.css" >

Will reference the files from the root level, as if it was on a server.This works all the time with Chrome and IE, even back to IE-8. So Mozilla Firefox must be blocking file references from local hard Drive root level. If there is a config variable or two I can set to allow it from firefox, I'd appreciate knowing about it. I'm satisfied testing with Chrome and IE, but FF is an important browser to test with.

Thanks in advance!

According to the official Firefox procedure shown online, in order to remove individual cookies, go to Options-Privacy-"Cookies and Site Data", Manage Data. All cookies are listed in that screen. Select the cookie to remove then click on the "Remove" button. After all individual cookies have been selected and 'Removed', finally, click on the "Save Changes" button and exit the screen.

The problem is, NO "Save Changes" button exists on the screen in Firefox 65. And, in fact, when I exit the screen and reboot Firefox - none of my changes to the list of cookies are actually done.

How to I really manage to permanently remove specific cookies ??

Pocket was OK for a while, but about a week or so ago it started taking the URL whenever I clicked on Bookmarks in the Firefox menu (on a Mac running 10.12.6). I keep my bookmarks organized in a folder structure, so this makes me go back to the Bookmarks menu and choose Edit This Bookmark. I changed the value given in the instructions to disable it to FALSE as instructed, and restarted Firefox just in case. BUT it still acts the same way, grabbing the Bookmarks. I don't WANT Pocket. If anyone can tell me how to get it to stop working I would really appreciate it. Thank you for any help.

Good evening !

After reinstalling Windows 10 1809 properly on my computer (total reset), Firefox is unable to access some websites and content such as Mozilla Support page or YouTube videos:

Some details :

- It does'nt happen with other web browsers (tested on Chrome, Edge and Opera). - Youtube homepage loads just fine, but the crash happens when I click on a video, no matter if I'm logged in or not. - Mozilla homepage works just fine, but support page is impossible to reach (I had to use Opera to write these lines) -I installed Microsoft Feature Pack (this one : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/mediafeaturepack), but no improvement. - I tryed to reset the USERAGENT but it was already by default. - I tryed to reinstall Firefox, no improvement. - I have tryed with and without Adobe Flash, no difference, problem is still here.

Here you can see the 7 last error codes found in about:crashes

I've already asked the question and gave my email address but now didn't see how to get to the forum. I started out having a problem hearing sound on facebook and youtube videos. Checked sound on pc - fine. Had a pc expert uninstall and reinstall firefox and the sound worked last night. This morning the sound on those videos is gone so I uninstalled and installed firefox again and now it says that facebook and youtube don't have safe connections!!!!! I didn't appreciate being offered the reimage app and then finding out it would cost me something after it went through my pc. I am being as nice as my frustration allows.
