Today, when I go to print out a web page, the format of the Print Preview window has changed and the"Simplify Page" option is missing. I use this feature all the time. Without it many pages are impossible to print. How can I restore this feature?

How can I roll back to the previous version of Firefox?

It just updated without my knowledge to version 76.0 and it broke Google Maps. I cannot "grab" the maps and moved them in any direction, an extremely very important feature. It's not Google, because I tried the identical maps using Opera, Chrome and Brave and it's working fine on all three of those browsers. Thanks for your help.

Sometime recently (as of 11/3/19) Firefox ceased to reliably print entire web pages. Instead it prints the first, last, and sometimes one middle page. The print preview function suffers the same error. Since the problem shows up in print preview I don't believe that it is related to the configuration of a specific printer. It doesn't seem to be a coding error in the web page as other browsers like IE, Chrome, and Opera render the page accurately. Because I don't print pages often, I can't tell with what version the problem showed up.

I am using "browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction" to force links that normally open in new windows, to instead open in new tabs. It all works fine, except when I click those links, Firefox switches to the new tabs immediately when I click them. I would like the tabs to open in new tabs but I do not want Firefox to immediately switch to them.

Please note that I have unchecked "When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately". Meaning, Firefox correctly does not switch to new tabs for normal links. However, it is switching to the new tabs for links that would normally open in new windows.

I am a home user with win 7 OS. In the DNS over HTTPS FAQ it says that

In addition, Firefox will check for certain functions that might be affected if DoH is enabled, including:

   Are parental controls enabled?
   Is the default DNS server filtering potentially malicious content?
   Is the device managed by an organization that might have a special DNS configuration? 

If any of these tests determine that DoH might interfere with the function, DoH will not be enabled. These tests will run every time the device connects to a different network.

Is there any way for me to find out if DOH is enabled or disabled by Firefox?

Hello, I have 3 websites:

http://history.typeheritage.com/ http://forums.typeheritage.com/ http://bazaar.typeheritage.com/

When viewed with Chrome, all are labeled "secure." When viewed with FF, the history and forums sites are not. Instead, they return the attached message.

Unless original work designed by me, all images on all sites are type specimens or trade journal articles from sources like design patents or university libraries (google books, haithi trust, internet archive, etc.).

Can someone figure out why this is happening and tell me how to fix it?

A thousand thanks for your help, Anna

Lately, I keep finding more and more websites that are able to prevent me from downloading their images. It seems this is becoming a huge problem now, and it's changing the entire experience of using the web.

And it seems to me that Mozilla are enabling developers to do this, trying to take away people's rights.

In the past, I could work around the problem (not that I should have to) by going to Tools > Page Info > Media. But even that method no longer works (eg go to www.bbc.co.uk - the large image in the top left is nowhere to be found in Media!) There are also sites which show PDFs that cannot be downloaded. That is just SO wrong!

The ability to save any image in a web page is a basic liberty of using the web, always has been. No website should be allowed to display images that can't be downloaded, it's just wrong. It's like someone making a magazine out of special paper to stop readers tearing pages out!

I've sent feedback about this through the Help menu, but no one ever listens.

Does anyone here have the ability to raise this issue with Mozilla? This needs to be FOUGHT against. They are helping large corporations to slowly strip away the basic rights of the public. Saving pictures may seem like only a small detail, but it ultimately leads to a 100% premium internet where no one can keep or save anything. Mozilla is taking the internet out of the hands of the public and putting it the hands of big businesses.

The issue of 'protecting copyright' is completely irrelevant. Any criminal operation determined to leech images would obviously have the ability to do this regardless. Plus, if companies don't want people to be able to download the high-res version of an image, they shouldn't put it online.

Ever since I installed the last update, 84, which caused a host of problems I will not go into, an unanticipated one was that I can non longer output to PDF as Firefox automatically changes it to Firefox HTML Files. I can view them in Acrobat, but the subtle difference makes it impossible for Word Perfect to recognise them if I need to import them back (as in when something gets lost and all I have is the PDF). Please, community, do NOT tell me all I need to do is use MS Word to fix this. This is NEVER going to happen, now or ever! Now that this made clear, what, if anything can I do? And why would Firefox have anything to DO with me converting WP files into PDF? Clearly there is some greedy little finger stuck somewhere, because the proof is in the long list of files I now have that are no longer PDF. I have opened them in Acrobat and saved them again, but they still show up as FIrefox HTML Files. Aaargh! Help, please! It's driving me mad!

The following code work in Firefox v54, but stopped working on Firefox v68.4.1 (possibly earlier version as well).

index.html: <body>

<object type="image/svg+xml" data="test.svg", id="test_svg_id">

   Your browser doesn't support SVG
</object>

<script type="text/javascript" src="test.js"></script>

</body>

javascript: function init() {

 console.log("init()");

// Get the overall SVG defined in the Index HMTL page var svg_object = document.getElementById("test_svg_id");

// Get the SVG document inside the Object tag var svg_document = svg_object.contentDocument; }

Any idea why contentDocument is always null?
