Firefox updated to 97.0 (64-bit) this morning for me and immediately ceased functioning. It could not even load about:addons or about:settings. Other browsers worked fine, and by processes of elimination I found it to be Webroot that was causing the dysfunction. I've already opened a support ticket with Webroot, but I wanted to make Mozilla aware of this conflict and to ask if there is anything that I can do to remedy this besides completely disabling my anti-virus/spyware to use Firefox?

Prior to FF97 a simply setting to "false" the about:config, print.tab_modal.enabled setting allowed FF to always use the system dialog box when printing. However, in FF97, this is no longer the case. How can I set FF97 to always use the system print dialog box??

I almost always use Preview printing on my Macs to avoid multiple pages of garbage so this is fairly important to me...and it might help to save a few trees...

Hi, how do we set Firefox 97 to use the os/system print dialog?

Before Firefox 97 we could change these settings in about:config:

print.tab_modal.enabled = false widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal = true

But they are both gone now.

There is now widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.print, which is an integer (2 by default).

But no matter what integer it is set to, we still don't get the os/system print dialog.

We are using Arch Linux, but we don't expect that to be of any importance -- after all, it worked before Firefox 97.

Thanks for your time :o)

I have for many years tried to have excel automatically open downloaded .csv files as I do this every day many times. Until today I have not been able to understand why, despite having asked for Firefox to automatically open .csv files with Excel, and therefore finding "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File" associated to "Use Excel (Default)" in the application association list in the General settings, Firefox continues to ask what to do with the .csv file type when downloading.

What I have discovered is that when using a search for associations in the General tab, csv gives no results! However searching for cel does for some reason list the "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File".

It seems to me that the file type three letter code for the Microsoft excel csv file is wrongly stated in the association list. Is my assumption right? If so how can I correct this please?

For information I have had this problem on more than one computer! I have just set this up on a brand new laptop when discovering this.

Images attached... Thank you.

I just updated from Firefox 96.0.3 to Firefox 97. When I try to print I get the Firefox preview, even though I have print.tab_modal.enabled set to false. Please fix it so that I can get the print system dialog without going via the Firefox preview. Note that I have now reverted to Firefox 96.0.3 and won't update from this unless the problem is fixed.

Firefox automatically updated last night, and once again defaults to its 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 -- which wastes a lot of time every time I want to print.

I can't find a setting to choose my system printer dialog box as default. the solutions from last year no longer work (about:config, then tab_mo, then print.tab_modal.enabled, set to false.

Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser because the Firefox dialog box sucks.

Hello,

I seem to be having a problem when playing any VR content in the latest default version of Firefox (97.0.1, 64-bit). When VR content is being displayed, I do not get a prompt to allow access to my VR headset in the address bar.

I have a first generation Oculus Rift CV1. In the Oculus software's settings, I have enabled Unknown Sources and selected it as my default OpenXR runtime (see attached image).

I would like to provide some suggestions as to what might be going wrong but I am unable to even hazard a guess. VR games and standalone applications work fine. It is almost as if Firefox doesn't recognise I have a VR-compatible device?

Thanks in advance for any support, -L

In the last Firefox update, you changed the printing user interface AGAIN. The print.tab_modal.enabled=false config option no longer works, and I can't easily re-scale my page when I print. Is there a new option which restores the original behavior or is there some other remedy that will let me print using the Windows System dialogue?

Good day Firefox When the Wordle puzzle was accessed via the powerlanguage.co.uk website, my Firefox browser gave me easy access via bookmark but, in recent days, the ownership and location of the puzzle has passed to the New York Times and my bookmark activation takes me to the NYT games/wordle page but the page is blank. I have now found that I can access the page and complete the puzzle using Microsoft Edge but I have no desire to use Edge. I have read a statement in the NYT that the puzzle will continue with free access so payment is not an obstacle. Is there likely a setting in Firefox which is preventing me access to the puzzle and, if so, are you able to suggest where I can access the setting. Thank you, John Price

I am a Firefox user for 5 years now and never had such bad experience before. Since 2022 February 8 my Firefox application keeps crashing all the time. The browser opens and I can open webpages as well, but shortly after opening the websites, most of the pages result in Firefoxing crashing. I have latest version of Firefox and I have checked in safe / troubleshooting mode as well, but it did not help, Firefox still crashes. I have submitted a lot of crash reports in the last two days, the latest one has this ID: bp-94f69edd-95cb-40e3-84de-33cb20220210.

Please let me know what to do, as currently I cannot use Firefox and without a fix I have change to another web browser. Please also note that the same webpages that crash under Firefox work without errors in other browsers.
