Greetings Firefox Support/CommunityL

While reconnecting one of my computers to my Firefox account I saw at the top of the Settings Page: "Your settings are being managed by your organization". Problem is that I don't belong to any organizations or enterprises having anything to do with my online life. I have been hacked in the past and am paranoid when I see something that doesn't make sense. When I click on the link (trusting that it is indeed from you), it takes me to your Enterprise Policy page showing the following:


Active Policy Name Policy Value

DNSOverHTTPS Enabled false Locked true

I always use secure DNS (DOH or DOT) on everything - network adapters, routers (except the ISP one whose default I can't figure out to circumvent) etc. but on the browser setting pages I am only given the option of having it off: the default, increased, and max protection options are greyed out and cannot be chosen. I guess that explains the policy values but who locked it? My only guess is that is use a Surfshark VPN and realize that in so doing I am using Surfshark's DNS servers but I believe I had this problem before using the VPN. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

PDF Print Scale Won't Go Above 100%

TL;DR: It lets me change the print scale to 101-200% for pdfs, but making it bigger doesn't actually change the preview image or resulting print, it just leaves it at 100%. As far as I can tell, making the pdf smaller than 100% works as it should and the print scale for websites works as it should for all possible sizes.


I wanted to print some labels and to do so I need to get the size exactly right, so I printed the page normally and measured the size of the page I printed and compared it to the size of the labels, 262 & 272 respectively. 272/262 = about 103.8% so I tried setting the scale to 103% and printed it again, but when I measured that page it was exactly the same as the 100% scale. Then I looked back and realized that although the preview reloaded whenever I raised the number the image didn't actually change, setting it to 200% looked the same as 100% and 150% and etc. I think this must be a bug, but so that's one part of this, but does anyone know of any workarounds in the meantime?

Whenever I try to open Firefox, it takes about 25 seconds to boot. This behavior can be observed both with all the extensions running and in safe mode. The link to the profiles are shared below.

With extensions: https://share.firefox.dev/3riMPQZ In safe mode: https://share.firefox.dev/3OadE31

I have been noticing this for a few months now. Firefox works just fine after wasting ~25 seconds initially. I have also reinstalled Firefox multiple times. Right after the installation, the boot-up can be very fast (less than 1 second). However, after using Firefox for a few hours, the problem comes back.

I am not well-versed in reading Firefox profiler reports. So, please help me figure out what's actually happening in those ~25 seconds.

Using latest version of Firefox - 116.0

Unfortunately recently I have been unable to drag files out of the 'Downloads' At the same time, I noticed I can no longer copy images from pages.

I will right click, copy image and it just does not go into my clipboard.

In terms of the Downloads, I'd always download audio or video files and drag them straight into Premiere Pro - I can no longer do this. I cannot drag it outside of Premiere either, so it's not an Adobe bug.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

The last Walmart questions are 2022, so again... When I click a link to Walmart, for a second I see the full site displayed correctly on my desktop monitor, then it shrinks to about half to the left side. Windows 10 up to date, Firefox 116.00. Enhanced tracking, whether on or off, doesn't matter. Walmart is the only site I have this issue with. Is it Walmart's fault?

Dear team, I request support to search and find my data syncronized in the mozilla firefox account, which has been lost unexpectedly and I don't know where it is. I am using ubuntu LTS 22, I have uninstalled the package and made a clean install, with the reason that all my browser data disappeared overnight, as if it was its first use, my session in the firefox account and all my data disappeared. After installing the clean copy, I opened my account to synchronize my data, bookmarks and history, themes and extensions, unfortunately none of this happened, I don't know where all my private data is, which I left available to synchronize and recover again, I request a copy of them to restore them and to return the flow through the synchronization function so that they appear again, contact me at this same email. Best regards, stay connected

I get no warning when auto updates begin installation. I get notified about 1/2 way through the process. The pc (Win 10 pro 64bit) slows to a crawl for 5-10 minutes, then the install finishes, & then it's another 5-10 minutes before the pc is usable.

I would really appreciate a "update is available" notification, which I would agree to at a convenient time. This is really getting to be problematic. Other browsers that do auto updates don't hose my pc.

Thank you!

I Did the windows fresh installation on my laptop and then I installed the fresh firefox on my laptop. After that try to sign in my previous Firefox account and try to sync my bookmarks and everything. but sync is not working.

I try to do the force sync from the settings as well but that is still not sync my old bookmarks and saved things before I format my laptop.

Any Idea or workaround to get this sorted ?

Hi, I’m having a problem with Firefox on Windows 11. Sometimes, when I browse the web, the text on some websites appears glitchy and distorted. Some letters are missing and some colors are wrong. I tried refreshing Firefox and it fixed the problem once, but then it came back. I also tried restarting my computer, clearing my cookies and cache, restarting Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode, updating my graphics driver, and disabling hardware acceleration. None of these worked. I’m using the default theme and I don’t have any extensions enabled. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

The following just started a week or so ago. When I start Windows 11 (latest version), Firefox (build 116.0 64 bit) automatically starts and the page that displays is attempting to access one of my Microsoft accounts. I tried toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart. but nothing changed. There is nothing in my Startup folder related to Firefox, and msconfig doesn't list anything as a startup process.

What's strange is that this just started happening. I've used Firefox as long as I can remember, and have never had this issue.

Short of uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, does anyone have any suggestion(s)? Thanks.

I run Firefox 115.0.3 on Windows 10, desktop. The main menu in Firefox has a "recent bookmark" listed and I would like to remove it from the menu. I thought it would be a simple matter of going into bookmark menu settings or the settings from the main menu, but it is not. When I was unable to resolve it, I did an internet search and was unable to find a straight forward answer. As one fix suggested, I tried turning off "history" to no avail. I've attached an image which shows "recent bookmarks" in the main menu of Firefox browser. I don't feel it is necessary to have recent bookmarks in the main menu when it is easily access from the bookmark icon. Perhaps I've overlooked an option in settings. Can someone please help resolve the issue.
