when i print, it's too small or too large. it doesn't seem to matter if I do everything that is suggested, it still doesn't print the correct size. Either half or more of the page is off or the print is too small. I usually have to make it down to 30% to fit the paper size in print preview. 30% is way too small. Help please. I've been putting up with this quite some time now and it's frustrating.

How do I fix this? Firefox won't start (it did a few days ago).

Version 87 running on Windows 10.

Error Msg: The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found.

There is a file: VCRUNTIME140.dll in the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder.

I reinstalled Firefox but that didn't help.

Hi, I accidentally DLed FF88 without checking the details w/r/t functionality.

Several of the changes severely compromise my ability to use FF for my job.

Examples are the 'view image' which is now gone from right-click and replaced with 'open image in new tab' --this disrupts my work flow. And 'save image to pocket' etc is not useful for me, but happens to be right where I normally click on another function.

Is there a relatively seamless way to undo the FF88 'upgrade' ? TIA

Up to some days ago I had the extremely handy option to look up a stored password in sync, by clicking on the firefox account button in the toolbar. In the menu that opened there was an option to view (add? manage?) stored accounts and passwords. Two clicks and that was it.

Today I tried to do the same thing, but instead of the usual menu options I was greeted with 5-6 options relating to the firefox account, and a zillion of my synced bookmarked pages from other devices. Where has the ultra-used (perhaps the single most used button on my browser, besides the back/forward ones and ctrl+h to open history) option of opening Lockwise gone to?

Please God, don't let this one be a "usability" improvement...

From the very start, for the last 25+ years, Right Click a link, and hit the letter W to open the link in a new window... Suddenly, with 88 Update, it is now the letter D. (while everything else in Windows is still W)

How do I get it back to [W] (Industry Standard is W)

Why did Mozilla change the letter to D?

I don't mind having to train myself to use D instead of W... I do mind that everything else still uses W, so I have to train myself to only use D in Firefox.

While youtube videos is flawless, facebook videos seem to play at 15fps. Audio plays flawlessly though.. It happens with both CentOS and RHEL. I'm using the flatpak version of firefox 88. Tried with safe mode, same issue. Tried with disabled hardware acceleration, same issue. Tried with both HWA disabled and Safe mode, same issue. It's a little weird that videos are flawless in brave browser..

Is there some obscure setting in about:config that I can fiddle with?

Many people who answer questions in Mozilla support at least give the appearance of having forgotten that most people with questions are probably those who need the a-b-c's of the answer s-p-e-l-l-e-d--o-u-t for them, including myself. I found the archived answer to my basic question but couldn't use it because it didn't go back to the very beginning and explicitly give every step of how to do whatever it was that was asked for.

I know I have to sign in to AMO. I just don't know how.

So HOW?

5 Time in raw Firefoxes crashed because i was too power hungry. first two time I close manually 3 and 4 time and ha dto manually kileld it. Then on 4th time sesstion restaure Fail. 5Th time I try manually retaurique using my historique it lag I quit, but the library and history stay open and FF never die I had to kill it manually and here I am now wih only one page opened and FF consumme all my ram.

I updated my assus last year I have up to 8GBram now and I am back to the problem when i had 4GB ram.

Remember when you could set up a "restaure session button" on your homepage, and it wasn't rgeyout. Yess at the time Emergency back up in case of crash weren't as reliable as they were 3 days ago. Rememebr when the ctrl +maj +N worked? (This why as muti tab bitch I always use 3 windows and this why I also don't want to uatomatic sessionrestaure even tho I walays end up restauring session at the begining or before closing it when I want a quick search or FF was triggered by another app.)

Remember when your sesson restaure TAB fail to load as it did to me twice this day, you could ctr+ T and then homepage and you were good?

I fear that the sessions resstaure and profiel system juste died on me !

Hello. Had installed Mozilla awhile back, then uninstalled it but could not remember why. After re-installing, the issue has come back and think it best to ask. I use Free Download Manager and the add-on is active and downloads OK. Problem comes when handling streaming videos. When an object I intend to download has a download button, FDM automatically picks and handles the download; however, when I right-click a streaming video and "Save Video As", Mozilla does not pick the download via FDM but switches to the traditional download method. Interestingly, same scenario in Chrome and Edge, the "save video as" via FDM works picks perfectly. Please help. Thanks

Hi,

I am an old-timer and one update per one or two years is enough. Are automatic updates at last disabled in firefox 88 ? I tried about:config but it is too much complicated, I am nearly retired.

Perhaps could you deliver forefix, the nice-to-have version of firefox that don't bother with updates.

Yesterday in installed 20H2 update for Windows 10 on my laptop. Now Firefox does not render colors correctly on some web sites. For exmple, Google maps displays the street map on a dark background, making it very difficult to interpret. Another examples is forecast.weather.gov. My Windows Colors Personalization settings are:

     Choose your color:  Light
     Transparency effects: off
     Choose your accent color:  Automatically pick an accent color from my background
     Show accent colors on the following surfaces: Title bars and window borders

Firefox Language and Appearance color settings:

     Text:  black
      Background: white
      Use system colors:  ticked "off"
      Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above: Always

I also tried various other setting combinations, with no improvement.

Chrome and Edge render these websites correctly using default setting.

My CPU usage suddenly began topping out when I would launch a Firefox session. I followed advice on-line to remedy the problem and created a new profile then deleted the old profile. As described in the on-line process I was following, when deleting the profile the option came up: "delete files and profile" or "just delete profile". I selected "just delete profile". How can I link the files from the deleted profile to the new one? Also, deleting the profile didn't improve the excessive CPU usage. I'm not very technical.

Thanks for any guidance on either or both issues. RF
