I've recently switched back to Firefox from Edge and have run into a frustrating issue.

When I try to print documents from Firefox, the "Color Mode" in the print settings is grayed out so I can't select B&W.

This same problem exists both on my MacOS laptop + my Windows 11 desktop. Additionally, they are connected to different printers on different networks. It also occurs whether I'm trying to print a PDF or anything else in Firefox.

Based on this, it appears Firefox is the culprit here.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

For the recent past, the font size on FF tabs, url, bookmark bar, tabs and anything else to do with the actual FF program has a font so small that it is unreadable unless I use the W10 magnifier. I have spent hours, days and weeks trying everything I can find to increase the font size and nothing has worked. I am vision impaired and understand that everything cannot be adjusted to my needs BUT there are hundreds of postings on line by people with good vision complaining about the non adjustable font sizes. Does FF have any intentions on finding a fix for this? I am an avid user of FF but am at a point with my vision to where it is too problematic for me to continue using. If you cannot fix this issue then I must find a program that does not have this problem. It may very well be a conflict between FF and W10 but even that were the case, there are supposed to be a lot of intellingent individuals that should be able to remedy this situation. Please advise of your intentions as soon as possible in order that I may proceed with my plans. Sincerely, Ron Burnes

Selecting text on any page, there's no visual feedback of what is selected until mouse is released.

There's no feedback that selection starts when mouse button is pressed down, no visual feedback while moving the mouse with the button pressed and only upon releasing the button do I get to see the selection.

Selecting works fine in other browsers (chromium) and was working the other day before I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 22.04 (was using 20.04 before) wiping my previous Firefox. So this issue is on an almost vanilla Firefox version 104.0.2.

(Incidentally I can highlight that version number and only that version number in the about-box and I get continuous dynamic feedback of what part of the version number I highlight, but nowhere else in Firefox.)

None of this works.

1. There is no key: "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\HTTP\shell\open\command" in the registry.

2. Went through the registry and changed the values of the following keys: .htm, .html, .ttt, .htw, .htx and hxx and every entry to their reference to: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" then rebooted.

3. After each registry edit and reboot windows10 took a long time to come up with lots of disk activity. This tell me the windows changes all this back!

4. So, how do you fix this??????

Okay, I give up. So, Facebook is or has implemented this Turn on two-factor authentication or whatever it is. What this means for me at the moment is that I am unable to access my Facebook account as it is now forcing me to use this Two-factor authentication thingie, despite that I do not have a mobile phone. (yes, I know it's unusual in this day of age not to have one. I did have one at one time, but for the moment I have no interest in getting another one). I would rather use my laptop anyway.

Doesn't Firefox have a Two-factor Authentication thing that I can use with Facebook? Without a mobile phone using the Firefox browser on a computer or laptop?

Now, from what I can see, Facebook is offering 3 ways of doing this. #1) Authentication app, like Google Authenticator or Duo Mobile. #2) Text message (SMS). #3) Security Key. So, because I do not use or have a mobile phone, I was guessing that my option would only be #1 Authentication app, like Google Authenticator ... which I have never used before, and while reading up on it, I keep reading that I can only use it with the Google Chrome browser?!? If that wasn't bad enough, I typically use Microsoft Outlook, not Gmail. So, I am at a loss at this point.

Again, I do not have a mobile phone. Doesn't Firefox have a Two-factor Authentication thing that I can use with Facebook? Without a mobile phone using the Firefox browser on a computer or laptop?

Help please.

Down loaded update on Feb 2. What received was a virus with a 888 845 9852 number supposed to be Microsoft. I checked the number it was reported as spam. I called the number just for grins, Nancy wanted me to go to th help.info and turn over control to a “technician” so it could be repaired. In strong terms I explained to Nancy what she could do with her web site. I replaced HD and installed back up from external hard drive.

Hello. I have a problem with turning off google safesearch. I'm 28 years old so it's not a problem with google acc. I have same firefox on pc and on laptop. On pc and on smarthphone it's easily turning off and if i'm using edge or chrome on laptop it's also turned off, but if i'm using firefox exactly on google it's always turned on no matter what i'm do. Just in case, if i'm using for example bing search in firefox it's also turned off, likely it's always turned when i'm using google with combination in firefox. Methods that I already tried: 1) Turned off in computer settings (not worked) 2) Reinstalled browser (not worked) 3) Checked in my wifi settings (not worked) 4) Updated everything (not worked) Waiting for your help.

I recently had hard drive problems and during the ensuing melee, I discovered that Firefox has stored well over 100k files with the general name {xxx...}.final. Being the curious sort--and given that these boogers are taking up almost 1Gb--I looked at a few and they appear to be related to websites that I visited. I can see keeping some recent things around, but some of this goes back, literally, to the day I bought my PC. Um...that's a lot of files and a lot of space for places I visited once and will never go to again. Some of the websites no longer exist, so obviously those files are wasted space.

I am unable to find much about this on the web, either via Google or the help here. A few people have brought it up, but no one seems to know what to do. The help here goes nuts with the search term "final" and brings up a plethora of hits containing "finally" and so forth, but nothing useful. "}.final" isn't much help, either.

The path is C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile name>\storage\default

Questions: 1) Can some or all of this be deleted? 2) Is there a way to tell Firefox not to be so anal about keeping so many useless things?

Given the sheer quantity of these things, it would make future backup/restores easier if I could trim some of the fat, but I don't want to mess things up, either.

Thanks...

I do my Firefox updates manually. I am currently using version 108.0.2. When I click on "about", it says I should "Update to Partner Removal". It usually tells me to update to the next version that is available. What is Partner Removal? Is it a legitimate update? I can't find anything on the website regarding this. Why does it not tell me to update to version 109?

Thank you for your help.
