Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

I have changed the settings in about:config, and also with options in the tools menu on Firefox, and I am still having problems, specifically with Fox News, but also other sites that allow a video to automatically play and blast audio. It is very disconcerting that there doesn't seem to be a way to stop this from happening. Can you help? I am using Firefox 86.

I can't find a way to enlarge the font size in menu or bookmarks toolbar, or the drop down menu and the bookmarks themselves. It is ridiculously miniscule and I have to use a magnifier to see it - I have Fuchs Dystrophy so my eyesight varies from day to day, but 16-18 size is usually ok. Can anyone point the way if any please?

I welcomed the Picture-in-Picture feature to the Mac, which allowed me to watch YouTube videos while performing other tasks.

Recently when I have clicked on the Picture-in-Picture icon, the view does the exact opposite of what I want to occur. I want a small window that I can move around and resize. Instead, the video goes Full Screen.

I've tried right-clicking on the icon and on the video, double-right-clicking, looking through Firefox settings, updating to the latest version, etc. -- but stiill don't know how to recover the Picture-in-Picture feature. How do I get that back? Thank you.

Hi, The alternate search shortcuts are an excellent feature. Prior to a recent Firefox update, I was able to enter a search term and click once on one of the alternate search engine icons to perform the search with that engine.

Currently, I need to click the icon, e.g. Wikipedia, and confirm the request by pressing Enter or clicking the new item in the entry in the address bar drop-down, "Search with Wikipedia" (screenshot attached).

Is there an item in the about:config settings to revert this change and perform this search with a single click on the icon?

Thank you.

Hello,

I am looking for a way to hide my tab bar when there is only one tab open. I almost found the solution there: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1297983 But it is not exactly what i am looking for. This solution hides the tab but not the tab bar it self. I mean it leaves some black empty space because i use dark theme.

I kept looking for a solution to hide the container. I found this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1271391 The problem is: this solution hides all the time the tab bar. No maters how many tabs opened.

I experimented mixing these two solution. I have try:

  1. tabbrowser-tabs tab[first-visible-tab="true"][last-visible-tab="true"] + #mainwindow:not([tabsintitlebar="true"]) #TabsToolbar {
 visibility: collapse;

}

I tried the other way around, with "#mainwindow" first. I tried without the "+" sign. But none worked out.

Users have been complaining about update nags for several years, and when a solution is found via about:config, Mozilla typically puts a spanner in the works and deletes the relevant config items like 'app.update.silent', 'app.update.doorhanger... etc.

I just want to remove the popup, not the ability to update. I'll update when I'm good and ready, and I don't need a popup each and every day nagging me to do so.

If Mozilla must ape Chrome, then aping Chrome's non-nagging update policy would be a good move.

When I go to a web page which is a PDF, the web page used to load as a PDF. Now there are 2 tabs, one is blank and has an address which refers to the PDF location, and the other is a PDF saved to the Temp folder (eg. file:///C:/Users/USER/AppData/Local/Temp/some_PDF.pdf)

My preference is: www.some_website/some_PDF.pdf

This is because I save the tabs, and the next time I use Firefox, the temporary PDF is not loaded anymore. As well, I prefer 1 tab instead of 2.

Where is the setting to adjust?
