Hello,

 I'm a Windows 7 user. For the past 3 weeks my Firefox browser (83.0) has been slowing down and then speeding up while visiting sites. I tried Safe Mode, Refresh, and Reinstall but nothing seems to help. It's not being caused by anything on my computer (malware, viruses, etc) because I ran several scans using Malwarebytes Premium, CCleaner Premium, Microsoft Security Essentials, even Microsoft Safety Scanner and nothing turns up.
 Is there any other way to fix this issue on the browser?

I often need to print or download pdf presentation files from online sources which I used to do on Safari (I use imac) On Safari, the pdf presentation automatically rotates on the print page, so then I can use "save as PDF" on portrait and everything looks good. (then I just rotate the file to landscape on Preview or PDFexpert to read the presentation).

When I try to do the same on Firefox, on the print page, the presentation does not rotate and remain landscape. The problem is, when I choose landscape to print, then the presentation is not centered on the page and skewed to one side so I get much wider margin on one side.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

I appreciate any advice or input!

I have a new MacBook Pro 2020 with MacOS Big Sur 11.0.1. I have made Firefox the default browser by going to the Apple menu and choosing System Preferences then choosing General. I have also made Firefox the default browser by going to the Firefox menu and choosing Preferences then General. On that screen it says that Firefox is not my default browser and there is a box to click on that says "Make Default". I click on it then click on "use Firefox", but when I click on links in my email Safari still opens. Any suggestions.

I am unable to sync into my firefox account. It says, "The confirmation email we sent to *email address* was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data." According to other threads, one is to wait 24 hours before trying to log in again. It has been more than 24 hours, and I am still unable to access my account.

Hi:

Two questions:

1. I would like to block all cookies for all websites (at once, not one-by-one by website) and allow cookies only for websites identified as exceptions. I know how to enter the exception one-by-one, but could not figure out the rest. Is there a way to do this?

2. I entered 3 websites (one-by-one) to block them from storing cookies (in Manage exceptions). They show up on the list (under Manage Exceptions), but under Manage Data, these websites still stored cookies. Then I went to one of these websites and selected View Page Info>Permissions and selected blocking cookies. The website still stored cookies. How can one prevent websites that appear to be selected to block, to actually block storage of cookies? Either I am doing something incorrectly or this doesn't work.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm at my wits end. I've tried every fix I could find and Firefox is dramatically slower then Edge or Chrome. This happens with loading sites, like Amazon. Also, it often locks up/stops when typing (like right now) and it takes about 15 seconds for it to repond again.

First, I doubt it's a hardware or network issue, since it's happened on both my old archaic PC and now on my new PC (i9 CPU, Nvidia 2070 graphics card, 64gb RAM).

Here's some highlights of what I've tried so far: • Refreshing multiple times • Rebooting the PC • Doing all the Quick Tips on this website • Eliminating all extensions • Clearing all cookies and cash • ...

Also, I don't get any error codes. The tab icon just spins for a long time.

I'm hoping I'm missing something obvious, since I love Firefox.

Thanks and any help!

I didn't mind this bug in about a week ago, but it is sufficiently annoying enough. The firefox is deleting last letter consists of my locale, hangul, when I search it through address bar.

It occurs when searching more than 2 words. Precisely, conditions are two. 1. one or more space bar between two words. 2. the last word has more than one letter.

ex) ㄱ ㄴㄷ(enter) --(when searching through address bar)--> ㄱ ㄴ

It is resolved by adding space bar or move the cursor to the right of the letter. So you can't reproduce it with just copying that words. You need to search with korean locale keyboard to reproduce that bug. Anyway, it's still annoying doing things what I should not do with the previous version.

Pocket is a fantastic idea - another essential element to support democracy.

However, some of the news articles are from websites like the NY Times and Washington Post which require accessors to SUBSCRIBE before being allowed to view the reporting content.

Even when you use the 2-second delay to hit ctrl-a and ctrl-c (select-all and copy) shortcuts, it is a nuisance and often requires repeat attempts.

SO, can the "wonderful brainiacs" of Moz/Firefox find alternative sources of the same content to avoid those sites requiring forced subscriptions?

Hello,

I have been writing a .bat file, as well as experimenting with ShellBags in order to default Windows Explorer navigation pane settings and folder views / types to default.

Currently, I have the .bat file configured to remove the NavPane (HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\NavPane) and Sizer (HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\Sizer) registry folders / items (As these are automatically regenerated with default values by Windows), as well as myriad ShellBag items and Desktop.ini files. It then restarts Windows Explorer.

This .bat script, however, does not seem to default any customization made within Firefox's Save As window(s).

For example, if I right-click an image, then select Save Image As, and then proceed to drag the explorer panes to be excessively wide, then exit Firefox, upon running the .bat file, the excessively wide navigation / explorer panes remain excessively wide. They do not default.

Does Firefox store this pane customization information somewhere else? Can this be defaulted?

Thank you!

Whenever I click on Print Edit WE button the edit page opens but all the buttons are inactive and the PE button in the toolbar shows SUS for suspend. Nothing I do fixes it. I've removed and reinstalled the lastest version of PE from the add-on web page 3 or 4 times. A right click on the PE button drops down a menu but the one I need, Edit, puts PE into suspend mode. What could be causing this? I'm running FF 83.0, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro. Print Edit has always worked before. Does the latest version have a bug? Or does FF maybe have a bug?

I've been trying to figure out how to fix this and havent found anything in my google seartch settings, or firefox options or my PC's display settings, it might be right in front of me but I just cant figure it out.

On some pages, for example, when I do a google search on firefox, there is a ton of blank white space not used. Like it has a narrow page margin or something? I'm attaching a screenshot of what I mean. You can see half the screen is just white, how can I fix it so the display isnt so narrow? Not all pages have the blank space problem, for example outlook.com has no such issue.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to check this out.

I was closing the volume mixer after I no longer needed it and realized that Firefox was showing levels go up whenever I spoke into my microphone. I had been using it before to chat, but not on Firefox at all during the session at the time. No music or videos were playing in any of my tabs. After a while, it no longer picked it up, but I know for certain that there was no output of sound coming from my computer. I haven't been able to replicate it yet, but it does worry me.

Firefox - Add Colored tabs

I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore. I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer when I added my userChrome.css file. I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome.css file.

In Firefox address field type: about:support It shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default
