This question was already posted and badly answered in 2016. Now things have changed a lot and Firefox DO try to translate everything which is quite annoying to anyone knowing more than a single language. No extensions related. I need to completely disable that. My firefox is up to date: 118.0.1 (64-bit).

Thank you Arturo

I've been looking for help for a week now as to what happened to my ability to print from Firefox? Everything was fine until last week with the update. It's not my printer as I am able to print from other browsers. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Trying to clear saved printer setting per Troubleshooting advice. I even deleted it from my computer to try and get an earlier version but it keeps bringing me back to the latest version that does not work. The worst part was I was trying to back up my computer (restore point) to an earlier date my Webroot was not allowing me to do that I I could not get that turned off. I called the Geek squad who remoted in and made things worse. She somehow deleted my ONLY restore date there. So for a week I have been trying to find help. You are my last resort before I switch to another browser. I work from home so this is not convenient, as I print often. Switching browsers just to print is wasting time (I don't like the other browsers). HELP!

Hello,


I have been using FF on my laptop without any account (as i never needed to sync on other devies). Two days back, I have created a FF account so I can sync my credentials/history on another laptop. Since then my passwords are not loading and I have gone through lots of articles and tried all options. I have only one default profile and I can see the History and Bookmarks but lost passwords. The logins.json has only entries since I created the FF account. Please help me how to recover passwords? Many thaks in advance..

I used to be able to view all of my Firefox history but I noticed today that when I searched for old tabs, they wouldn't show up. When I went to view manage history to look, I found that there are only history tabs for Today, Yesterday, and Last 7 days. There is no more all history and I can't find anything older than 7 days ago. I looked at my privacy preferences and it's still set for Firefox to remember all history. Entering troubleshoot mode did nothing to fix the issue, either. How can I make it so Firefox remembers history older than 7 days? Why did it stop?

On my own computer, a Dell laptop running Windows 10, my Firefox 118 is customized to my satisfaction. In particular, in the upper right, from right to left, there are five icons: three lines for accessing a Firefox functions menu, a "puzzle piece" icon for accessing add-ons, a U-Block Origin icon for that ad blocker, a set of vertical lines that let me access some bookmarks and history settings, and a star that, when clicked, displays my whole bookmarks menu tree, showing a combination of individual URLs and URL folders that I saved there.

    Now I am trying to set up a new Dell laptop the same way. It's running Windows 11, and I cannot find a way to display that Firefox menu star. It's got the other star (the "save to favorites" star, farther to the left), but I cannot find a way to display that "show me my bookmarks" star. How do I get that icon to display?

Why can I not keep my Bookmark Folders in alphabetical order? Yes, I know I can see them alphabetically as an option in "Manage Bookmarks" but I am tired of scrolling up and down trying to find the proper folder to put my Bookmark into when I am saving a new Bookmark. This design or lack there of makes Firefox feel old and clunky.

EDIT: I've solved it by installing Kaspersky's extension. I have been troubled by an issue that every time I perform a search on some websites, the page will first freeze for ~10s, during which I can't click on anything on the page. However firefox itself is not totally freezed, like I can switch tabs without any issues, but if I click on the icons of extensions (such as my adblocker) it won't give me any response. After the freeze the page started to load normally. I have tried disabling all extensions, reinstalling firefox, updating to beta, and disabling security.tls.enable_0rtt_data, but none of these works. Other browsers on my device work normally, including Edge and Chrome. Websites that freeze during a search: Google, Bing, Musescore, Duckduckgo Websites that DO NOT freeze during a search: Github, Youtube, Twitter I have encountered this issue both on 117.0.1 and 118.0.

There are already a number of questions related to how to get rid of the stupid pop-up window asking to translate the web pages. I am fluent in 4 languages, I use them all on daily basis and for obvious reasons I cannot keep shifting any system preferences or anything else while switching between languages.

I tried copy the "about:config" which is supposed to prevent the automatic translation from being suggested. It doesn't work - the pop-up still comes. I have even rebooted the computer after. still the pop-up comes for random web pages.

Please for the next release of this otherwise magnificient (non-microsoft) browser fix this irritating feature.

it is not Firefox business to judge whether I understand the language on the pages or not. I want to be able to prevent all attempts at "user friendliness" from the browser.

Please advice when fixed.

When you open a link from the sidebar while holding ctrl, firefox opens it in a new tab and switches to it immediately; whereas when you click a link from a webpage with ctrl, it does not switch to the new tab (unless you hold shift as well, or check "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" in settings > general > tabs). I would like if firefox does not automatically switch to opened links from the sidebar (history, bookmark, etc.), when I open them with ctrl? (I know I can hold shift to do that, but I was wondering if there might be a preference in about:config to change the reverse this behaviour for sidebars)


Thanks, Ibr.
