I am very challenged by the new print dialog box on Firefox. My biggest problem is that I can no longer find a way to simplify the page, an option I used frequently to save paper and ink. Also, printing in draft requires multiple steps and looks like it might not be an option in the future.

Has anyone figured out a way to get around these issues, especially to simplify the page?

The old print dialog worked really well for me; this new one, not so much!

For some reason, many (but not all) websites I go to in firefox open at the bottom of the page. I think the problem might be related to my mouse/scroll settings, but if so, I can't find a solution.

Is there possibly a registry setting which I can look at?

Thanks!

On normal firefox 88.0 (64-bit) this works OK

on firefox nightly 90.0a1 (2021-04-26) (64-bit) this is broken

Normal window behavior on all applications on Ubuntu the window will stay open yet get pushed to become behind all other open windows when you mouse middle button click on the windows top "Title Bar"

By default firefox will NOT display this "Title Bar" on standard normal firefox you enable showing that "Title Bar" by hamburger menu -> Customize Toolbar -> checkmark ON Title Bar ... well that menu is now gone from nightly as of last week however through other settings I am able to enable the "Title Bar" however this push to go behind behavior fails to happen ... please fix ... over the years this same feature similarily disappears for a few weeks only to get fixed again so I have hope it will get fixed .... Please put this feature into checklist when making changes to the code !!!!!

thanks for making firefox the BEST browser by far ... especially on Android

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.

I know the ID attribute value of the element I want to find but I can't find a way to go to it. Ctrl+F searches the parsed code/page, the "search HTML" textbox between the tabs and the HTML code doesn't seem to do anything even though I can see the string in the code, and I can't find the "magnifying glass icon on the far right of the Breadcrumbs row". How can I search for a string in the actual code?

Thanks in advance.

Chromebook, Firefox for Linux. Display issues: Titlebar, Borders

I'm using Firefox 88.0.1 for Linux on a Chromebook running OS Ver. 91.... which uses Linux 5.4.109-26059-gc7455b8ce0e0 right now - but started on Ver. 88 or something and… (read more)

I'm using Firefox 88.0.1 for Linux on a Chromebook running OS Ver. 91.... which uses Linux 5.4.109-26059-gc7455b8ce0e0 right now - but started on Ver. 88 or something and whatever version of Linix that used. Anybody know why I can't turn the title bar off and why the screen rendering generally looks a bit flaky? I'm guessing it has something to do with the display manager that Google use and that it's not responding any of the Firefox settings. I've tried all the easy stuff like the title bar check box and other settings in about::config

Any ideas?

I have the DuckDuckGo (DDG) shortcut icon on my Windows 10 taskbar. Firefox is my default browser. When I click on the DDG icon, DDG opens in Edge. What do I do to have DDG open in Firefox? I set DDG as the default search engine in Firefox but, for me, it's more straightforward to click on the DDG icon (and I want to get rid of Edge COMPLETELY).

So Firefox suddenly and without asking just changed its look into something absolutely... No words can describe level of my disgust, so I wont fill this post by angry ranting.

Is there a way to get the old look back? (preferably without any downloads needed, cos at remote desktops that is not always an option)

Please, don't force me to use Chrome. I hate that browser, but they at least had decency to create skin, which makes it look like Firefox. The normal one, not the new diarrhea all over the screen one.

In Firefox settings, Firefox new tab, and in these mozilla forums, my add-ons are disabled. Specifically Vimium, and I get this message when hovering over the Vimium icon: "Vimium is not running on this page.

Your browser does not run web extensions like Vimium on certain pages, usually for security reasons.

Unless your browser's developers change their policy, then unfortunately it is not possible to make Vimium (or any other web extension, for that matter) work on this page."

How can I enable this, and possibly all normally active add-ons in these pages?
