There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.

Every time I switch on my laptop, I found that it was heating up without opening anything. I open the task manager and I see that Firefox is running and using a huge amount of the CPU and apparently consuming a lot of the battery as well. Firefox is not there in my startup list. I have reinstalled and installed multiple times. I have tried changing toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. I have tried changing browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false.

If I do open Firefox now, without ending the task that is already running, and then close it later, it is still running in the background. Only way to stop this task running is to end task and I have to do it every time I switch on my Laptop.

I hope I have described the problem well, please let me know what other details I can provide. I am putting a screenshot of the task running as well. Thanks in advance

Until I updated to 88.0 64 bit, when I right clicked on a page there was a link to View Page Info right next to the View Page Source link. Now it is gone. I can get the info page back by right clicking the padlock icon, clicking the arrow, then clicking more info but that is a real PITA. How do I get the link back on page right click. I am 100% sure that this was not done intentionally. That would be very silly and absurd to do.

When I try to screenshot and download an image it screenshots multiple images instead. My OS is Windows 10 and I'm having this problem when trying to screenshot and download an image from Instagram. I right click on the image as I always have and it screenshots and saves multiple images instead. I never had this problem before updating to Firefox 88 and I've been using the screenshot feature for well over two years. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and I'm still having the same problem. The image I'm trying to save is the one on the upper right.

I can find no recent documentation on command line options for the Firefox Browser. All of the information on this appears to be out of date or just does not work any more (in the latest version June 2021). Is there any documentation on this anywhere that is correct for the current version of the browser? I am specifically trying to run firefox with command line options on Windows 10 but I do not see that that should make any difference. The only option I can get to work is starting firefox with a specific URL; even then I have to change the browser settings to get that to open a new window; because the browser settings override the command line option -new-window

Good day! We connected two-factor authentication to the account and ran into a problem.

especially on startup, i get two 'windows' open. that is, instances. it happens because sometimes i click on firefox and nothing happens. if i decide too soon that it is not going to load, i click again and it then loads twice, and i get the nonsense about firefox already running. if this cannot be fixed, i would like to select allow only one instance to run as VLC offers.

I would like to be able to have two rows of tabs so things did not get so cluttered, but only if it is something like f8 to switch. since dos was squeezed out, nobody is using the f keys anyway.  :(

Hello Firefex Support Staff,

My name is Gloria Hovde and I've been using Firefox for some time but could use help on a particular topic. I would like to be able to select multiple bookmarks at a time in order to move them to a folder. Online help suggest Ctrl-Shift and a number of other things to try but so far none work. When I hold these keys down, the first file automatically opens and I can't select any of the other bookmarks. I have about 30 bookmarks that I want to move to a specific folder but can't select multiple bookmarks without them opening.

If you could please find a way that I can select multiple bookmarks to move them to a folder it would help immensely.

Thank you!
