Using Ctrl-F to open the find bar, I type a word that I know is in the page, but it shows as red with 'phrase not found'. If I scroll down to where the word appears in the current view it will find it, but not if it is some way off screen (above or below). Does it only search in the viewable area? If so it seems a little pointless. Checked the site with Chrome and it has no issue finding words anywhere on a page.

To re-create go to https://hryanjones.com/guess-my-word/board.html?difficulty=normal scroll to the bottom of the page, copy a username (unique), scroll to the top, open the find bar and search for that name. Firefox does not find it. Not yet checked with other sites.

Does anyone know of a way to refresh a site that is in app mode? Currently ctrl+R, F5, and right clicking don't give me that option. It's really the only major thing that I feel is missing from this mode (and a feature that Edge and Chromium in general has), sometimes sites just don't work right and you need to refresh them but that can't be done without relaunching the app.

Recently, Firefox updated.

Since then, some apps (New York Times website for one) have their print function bypassed. Instead of allowing NYT (for example) to do the printing, Firefox downloads a PDF file instead. I don't WANT a download - I want to let the app I'm using to do the print. I don't want the text/PDF on my computer, I just want to print what's on their website.

This a bit of a long shot I know, but recently I finally updated Windows from 1903 to 20H2 [clean install]...since then every time I try to login to eBay on this Desktop pc I have to fill out at least 2, if not 3 or 4 of those annoying verification Captchas. I'm asking about it here because eBay support these days is more or less non-existent and this happens in Firefox and Edge...but not in Brave browser. This was happening on eBay about a year ago and when I enabled the 'Do not prompt for authentication if password is saved' option in FF Options-Network Settings it fixed it, but that's not working now. There was some other FF setting as well, and I was never sure which one actually stopped this behaviour....but I can't see anything else that might be relevant. Does anyone have any idea how to stop this happening?

ps: this is not happening on my laptop, which was also updated to Windows 20H2 the same day and has exactly the same FF version and settings [I think]. pps: there are hundreds of other eBay users with the same problem.

Pic 1 is FF, 2 is Edge

Hiya!

My Firefox has this weird problem where the autocomplete for website adresses / URLs only works for certain URLs. For example, if I enter "python" it will autocomplete to "python.org/" but when I enter "paypal" it will not complete to "paypal.com" although I have visited that site many times and the address even shows up below the address bar.

I've already tried to go to "about:config" and set "Browser.urlbar.default.behavior" to "33" like I read on another topic here in this forum but it didn't work (it is already set to "true").

Does anyone know what to do to remedy this? Thanks in advance!

I am signed in to Firefox. Yet every time I open another tab or anything related to the page a popup asking me to sign in displays (see image). When I try to sign out in the account it pops up. Yet it will not accept my password. I have changed the password and it will not accept the change. I have tried to delete the checked box for the "Primary Password" but, it will not allow when that box pops up and again will not accept my password. I have tried to delete and reinstall but of course it say I have already had a installation and pulls up previous data. I have tried to refresh, no better luck. Do I need to completely delete including the registry and reinstall. It is irritating and frustrating. Windows 10, current Firefox,Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.40 GHz, 64 bit

How can I fix the text file icons in the website when I unchecked the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts,instead of your selections above" box? The entire website was made of text file icons like, for example, the speaker icon was named "volume_up" and the swap languages (reversible arrows cycle) icon is weirdly named "swap_horiz". It wasn't like that back in 2019 when I first brought my computer and before the last major update to the browser. So, I'm wondering, what happened in between the major updates (2019 to 2020) that cause this issue?

Apparently it is possible to write a web page such that it pops up the printer dialogue on load. That is, something in the page automatically launches the print dialogue. Usually that is wanted/expected behavior. For example, you just clicked on a "Print" button on the page. In my case, there is one page I use a lot that tries to auto-print a PDF. But I have PDF's set to open outside of FireFox. So the PDF loads in Acrobat (expected behavior), and FireFox tries to print the HTML page that is open in FireFox. Also presumably expected behavior, but not wanted if it is the PDF I want to print. This has gotten annoying, and so I'm looking for a control that suppresses printing. Ten minutes of googleing and all I can find are articles for the control to suppress the dialogue for printing, and instead print directly to the default printer, ie silent printing. I don't want to suppress the dialog. I want to auto-cancel the print job. That is, I want to disallow a web page from invoking the print dialog at all, by overriding the print instruction. Such as setting could either be set for a specific page, set or globally; either would work for me. Is there a control for that?

When I upgraded to Firefox 83, I discovered that the screenshot function, which previously appeared with a simple right click, had disappeared. I did some reading, and have tried the 'page actions' drop-down' menu, and the 'about:config' modification, but neither, frankly, did a thing. So, what gives? And why me? instead of, say, you? And, oh yeah, a solution would be cool, too...

Hello, I've had the problem for a while now, and finally decided to do something about it. When I am visiting certain websites the fonts for the headlines are all messed up. I attached two images of the official website of berlin, one opened with firefox, one opened with safari. You can see that the font problem is primarily applying to headlines. Since this doesn't happen on every website, I was thinking this could be due to firefox not being able to handle one certain font. You will also notice, that firefox doesn't display german letters such as ä, ö and ü.

I have already tried playing around with the performance settings, and my language is set to german. I am thankful for every new idea.

Cheers

Using Firefox 83.0 on Windows 7 and Windows 10, no plugins or extensions installed.

  • I open a HTML page on server https://secure...
  • The page successfully loads lots of scripts and other resources from server https://deimos...
  • When using an XHR request to access an ODATA resource on https://deimos... the request is marked as "blocked" in DevTools, see screenshot
  • When hovering the "blocked" icon in the console, "blocked by DevTools" is displayed
  • The page works fine in Chromium based browsers (tested Edge, Chrome, Firefox)
  • The page works fine if it is hosted on https://deimos... instead of https://secure... (that's why I assume that it is some Cross-Origin issue)
  • The server provides Access-Control-* headers, see screenshot. The headers provided for the blocked XHR request are the same if I check them in the chromium based browsers.
  • There is no sign (like a pre-flight OPTIONS request) of the blocked request in the web server logs
  • Only requestr which use credentials are blocked. Other XHR-requests without credentials (like the one following the blocked request on the screenshot) seem to succeed.

I played around with the "Content-Security-Policy" meta tag in the document, with no success. For requests blocked by this policy, DevTools explicitly displayed the Content Security Policy as the reason for blocking the request.

I found lots of posts on the net concerning the Access-Control-Allow-Credentials header, also I found that for requests with credentials the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header must not return "*". IMHO those are correctly provided by my server.

Any idea of what is going wrong here? I can provide the link to access the page in a personal mail...

Kind regards Ted
