firefox randomly inverts caps lock and numlock, and when that happens, also I can't delete tabs nor go to one tab to another unless I do three finger press the touchpad to delete a tab, also when you do create a new tab, it will open a whole new window

By inverting the caps/num lock I do mean that if they are active, then firefox get the input as if they weren't and viceversa

but if I do try to write into the numpad then the issue is not there, then if I do try to write again into firefox, the issues are not anymore present, the same happens when I do try to record the issue with obs, once that I do press record, then the issues will not be any more present

I did try a clean install, and the issues are still there, with and without addons, the issue seems to appear randomly, and always at the same time, I mean if the caps become reversed, then it will also prohibit me to gui delete a tab, to switch from one tab to another (but both do become highlighted by the gui), and opening each new tab into a new window

when I click on a PDF on a website, Firefox does what is specified under Settings/Applications for "Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)". I prefer to open the PDF in the Adobe Acrobat Reader, but apparently, the browser prefers to save PDF files. When I save my preferences "open with Adobe Acrobat Reader", it does that, but the next day, it tries to save the PDF again. This has been so for a long time. An overlooked bug or a feature?

Continuing to have issues with pinned tabs and, worse, Firefox crashing...like y'day with loss of all pinned tabs on powering up today?! Have posted issue several times with "FredMcD" being unable to help but who escalated the problem...with no response from Mozilla/Firefox! Needlessly spending a great deal of time restoring pinned tabs but sometimes cannot find them all. Does the "800 lbs" Mozilla care?

Hiya there,

I work in customer support myself and was using Auto Text Expander for firefox by "Pete". Yesterday this firefox update has caused me to lose all of my data, completely putting me back to square 1 and affecting my performance.

On top of that, for the first time since working here I had to create some account when I was already logged in, help

I need you to please restore my shortcuts as soon as possible!

I look forward to hearing back from you so I can get this sorted please!

Firefox ESR91.3 Silent Mode Print

We use Firefox in our small business to deliver web-based apps for visitor sign-in at schools. We specify Firefox ESR primarily because of the Silent Print feature and the fact it is much easier to enable in Firefox than other major browsers.

With the ESR 91 release we began getting reports from customers that our web-app was no printing the name tags to a locally connected label printer. The printer has been checked. Drivers are installed and updated. The target label printer is designated as the default for the Win-PC station.

The config of the Firefox print function has been verified so that it is targeting the right local device and has the relevant print settings correct.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = TRUE the sign-in process completes and no name tag is printed to the label printer.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = FALSE the sign-in process completes, the print dialog pops and upon clicking the PRINT button the name tag prints to the label printer.

What's up with the PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT setting? It used to work, when we were running ESR78. Silent printing has been our selling point to run Firefox on hundreds of PC/Win (and Mac) workstations across our customer sites. Without this feature enabled and working, our customers are going to start asking to move back to Chrome or Edge.

Hi, I realise this sort of thing is not exactly the end of the world but I'll ask anyway. In Proton, the background of the Settings page, about:config page and the Library window have changed to black [with white text]. Before, everything was white background with black text...is there any way at all to go back to that, without changing the Theme that I've been using for years? The Firefox colour settings change the Settings and about:config pages background to white but then you have the glaring white high contrast etc on every web page...and it still has a black background in the Library window, regardless of what colour settings I have there. I can change all this easily with some other theme or that Firefox Color addon [which is how I got the second picture below] but if that's the only option I would rather just put up with it as it is.

First pic is how it is now, second is how it always was before Proton and I want it to be again.

Thanks

A subfolder in one of my bookmark folders has disappeared from view on my Windows 10 device. It was there as recently as this past week (I use it frequently). It still shows (and contains bookmarks) when I look on my Android device under Desktop Bookmarks. Oddly enough, I decided to bookmark again one of the pages in the missing folder and the star next to the address indicated it's been bookmarked and the subfolder still shows up in the list when I attempted to bookmark it again. It also shows in the Bookmarks list when I go to Manage Bookmarks (as a subfolder where it has always been). Why is it not showing up when I try to access it from my bookmarks list when I click on the Show Your Bookmarks icon? It won't let me screen shot the dropdown menus.

I have a ton of unused tags that cannot be deleted. Apparently unused tags are supposed to be deleted automatically but for some reason they do not. These tags came from a Linux Firefox installation with the Linux distributions bookmarks.

Is there any way to manually delete them from Firefox?
