I want to import my mobile Safari bookmarks into Firefox on my desktop. I have read many articles on here but none of them have helped. I had hopes for this one(https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285031) but it was unclear whether the user was on a Mac or PC.

I have already installed iCloud for Windows and the iCloud Bookmarks add-on in Firefox. I have supposedly performed the sync operation already, but nothing seems to have transferred. I have neither the Safari bookmarks in Firefox, nor the Firefox bookmarks in Safari(which I do not want or care about as Safari will be deleted when I am done with all this) I don't see any options to adjust any kind of settings in either program.

I very much would like to get this iCloud thing to work. If that continues to be unsuccessful, is it possible to create an HTML file from the mobile Safari bookmarks and import THAT into Firefox?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Addon windows in the Overflow menu are limited or fixed in size and therefore some addon functions are inaccessible or hard to use. Usually I would just middle-click to scroll sideways but with some addons this is not possible (eg. LastPass only shows the "Upgrade to Premium" part and nothing else if it is in the Overflow menu). I love the minimalist black&white look of my current Firefox setup so having the red LastPass icon outside of the Overflow menu would ruin that. Other addons just look bad with all that extra white space, like Windscribe (which should have a very small Addon window).

Is there some way to change the size of the addon window or report this as a bug to have it behave like addons should?

Hi,

Due to some restrictions of features I’ve had to move from Chrome to Firefox at work. I often ship using the DHL Intraship portal. When trying to physically print the waybills they don’t print properly on the paper. They come out in different orientation and sizes than needed. I’m wondering if there’s a way to set the printer settings to the same configuration Chrome has?

Let me explain the differences.

On Chrome:

First off I will select the “Print Selected Documents” button. This opens what I assume is a PDF version of the documents in browser while giving me the option to print. The printer automatically sizes it and between the three pages detects which orientation and size needed. Please see screenshots below. I have censored some of the info.

Print Selected Documents Screen on Chrome: https://ibb.co/gJ6DJdt

PDF open in browser with print option that shows the pages in different orientation: https://ibb.co/Kj9vfJ1 https://ibb.co/7jGNnBS

Next up are the windows and settings in Firefox:

Print Selected Documents screen in Firefox: https://ibb.co/25zVKTQ

After clicking the button I don’t receive any print preview of the PDF and the orientation defaults to portrait instead of a mixture of portrait and landscape: https://ibb.co/MDJCR0W

If anyone knows how I can fix it the advice and help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much!

I have a web-based app which I use firefox to open. I use multiple tabs like for opening and printing pdf & having multiple modules from the web-based app. The issue is some users are clicking on the firefox icon even though firefox is open & it opens another session or window of Firefox. What I would like if someone clicks on the Firefox icon and it is already open to just display that session of firefox that is open & not open a new window/session. My issue is we have 5 and 6 different windows for the same web app & it's causing some issues. All links should open in a new Tab which they do now but if I can find a way to stop firefox opening twice it will solve my issue.

I have my favorite applications set as defaults in the autoplay extensions options. I have "do this every time" checked in the dialog box that pops up every time I try to open a file. It doesn't matter what the file extension is. PDF, MP4, and JPG files don't automatically open.

I posted a similar question before when I thought this only applied to MP4 files. Since then, I've noticed it applies to all files.

I would really appreciate some help getting this to work again. Jim Birke

Hello,

Sorry I am not English so I will try to be clear. I haven't found the answer to my question on the forum.

I have bookmarks in folders or with their icons in my "personal bar" under the adress bar. Previously, with my older computer, I had no problem, but now, I have automatically "autres marque-pages" (other bookmarks ?) that appears on the right of this bar, and it wasn't the case before. I don't understand why, only my personal bookmarks should appear.

I am attaching a picture of it.

Anyone has a clue ?

Thanks

An update of Firefox today left me with a toolbar with precious acreage devoted to the large, clumsy and unnecessary "Other Bookmarks" tab. I read on this help site the technical solutions, which are way over my head (it is not even remotely clear how to get an "address bar," much less enter software instructions in it!). For the rest of us dummies out there, can someone tell me if it is possible to get rid of this Other Bookmarks button? (I say it is unnecessary because clicking on the very compact right-pointing double arrow-heads always takes one to Other Bookmarks -- no need to waste toolbar space with the actual words!). I have not found any solution to this problem. In my view, it was a bad idea to "add" this feature--it should be removed in future updates!

Firefox recently - now seeing ver. 84.0.02 in Jan 2021 - when trying to print a page in Firefox Browser is really poor and very difficult to use. What stupid programmer or Mozilla exec decided to take away the option to easily re-size (or "simplify pages") and then easily select pages which pages to print? Stupid decision - very stupid. Makes me decide to change from Firefox and go elsewhere for a browser!!! NOW I have to, when I print, go through an extra step of selecting ":Print using the system dialog..." to easily select double sided printing and select only desired pages. AND I STILL CANNOT RECONFIGURE THE ZOOM TO REDUCE AMOUNT OF PAPER USED!. Really, really a bad decision. Change back...or tell me how to get rid if this new Print Option Menu and go back or I just quit Firefox....quit Mozilla. (OK - I just went exploring and fond 'size adjustment' and 'print on two sides' under the options. Still pretty shitty and I am so pissed off by now, I am changing my primary/default browser and taking Firefox off my desktop, iPhone, iPad and laptop. So no reply is needed. Just pass this on to Mozilla and let them see what such unannounced changes does to their customer base. Stay safe...2021 is not looking any better than the last shitty year.

Hello!

I recently purchased a new laptop that has biometric capabilities and was very excited to implement it into my Mozilla for an even more secure browser. Come to find out (so I think), that the touch ID can only be used for "sensitive" information like credit cards, etc. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, or I'm looking in the wrong place but what I would like to do is use touch ID on all of my autofills, even something as minor as a Webkinz account. I do know of the primary password, but obviously it's much faster and secure to use a fingerprint.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!
