I am on macOS Mojave and since the last Firefox update, I have been experiencing problems when printing a PDF attachment in my email. When I open the attachment, it opens in html which is fine. Then when I click print, a new tab opens with the printer settings, etc. but Firefox also launches a new browser, not just a new tab in the same browser. I have tried to change the print settings, reset the print settings, etc. but it has not helped. I can print the same attachment in another browser, such as chrome or safari without any issues.

The attached image shows my browser in the background with the pdf and printer window open in one tab and then the newly launched browser in the foreground which is blank.

Hi there

Whenever I use the open/save dialog all the active "Finder extensions" spawn a child process even if they already have one running. I'm not sure this is a Firefox bug or a macos (api) bug. I have the Betterzip and Graphicconverter Extensions active. This seems to have started with version 92 and/or 93. In the beginning everything seems alright, but after a while the finder/system begins to beachball for 20-30 seconds. When I then try to quit firefox the whole system becomes unresponsive and I have to power-off with the switch.

This is with the latest macos 11.6 and FF 93.

Kind regards,

Dhark01

I am constantly unable to access websites. My data seems to clog up. I'm in my 70's and have no patience or training for sifting though numerous fixes and possible solutions. I've done my best with no improvement. My husband is having the same issues on his computer. All my previous efforts erase my sign ins and require me to constantly enter new sign in information for my common websites. I can use Safari and Chrome without these issues so unless I get some form of personalized help that doesn't require a great deal of technological skill, I'm leaving this browser greatly disappointed in the lack of support.

[If this question was previously answered, I am unable to find it.]

The Setup: I have dual displays: a 2021 iMac 27 inch (used as the start-up display of course) and a 2009 iMac 27inch. The Problem: Firefox windows change resolution when the window is moved between monitors. Windows from applications from Apple (Safari...! etc.) and other (e.g., Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Zoom, Adobe Elements) all retain their resolution when they are moved to the second display. Firefox does not, and windows are displayed at a significantly reduced resolution. I have been unable to alter any display settings or Firefox settings to eliminate the "blow-up" loss of resolution when the window is moved.

(Yes, the text and display can be improved using the text/display commands in Firefox, but this kludge adjustment means the window displays poorly when returned to the first monitor.)

I don't understand why Firefox resolution behaves this way when the windows in all the other applications I've listed it is unchanged, particularly Safari which is displaying HTML for the same graphics and text.

I am trying to validate push notifications on AMP pages on Firefox, however, the pop-up to allow push notification which appears when I click on Subscribe does not stay on and disappears in a second. I have observed the same behaviour on Android Firefox as well. Please help.

I'm pretty sure this is a Firefox Relay extension problem. I used the relay extension for my Weebly website. Now, when I go to sign in, it no longer recognizes my user name and says there has been an error - that my user name is incorrect. The situation has not changed when I turn off Relay Extension and restart Firefox. I used the relay address to sign in just for the heck of it, and that doesn't work either. I can log into my Weebly site with Safari though - which means that something went wrong with Firefox and not Weebly. I had also used Relay on my Craigslist account and my accounts were automatically shut down. At the time, I did not think it was due to the Relay, but now I wonder. I had to open a new account with a new email address in order to use Craigslist again. (I have an ongoing ad). Anyway, I think there might be something wrong with Relay.

Hello support

I'm having a bit of difficulty with download speeds in Firefox - I'm on a 1000Mbps connection, but Firefox 78.15.0esr can only download at 300-350Mpbs.

Chrome downloads at 700Mbps and Opera at 900Mbps.

Tested with fast.com and speedtest.net, multiple times/various servers, and Firefox speeds are consistently limited to 350Mbps.

Is there anything I can do to speed up Firefox downloads?

Thank you.

Illegible shrinking text. Why is my "unique" text so faint, that it is hard to read, but the border of the box, the question "How can we help?" is dark black, so very legible.

The not so subtle message is: we hate our users and their ideas, we want them to squint and struggle to use our programs, not we want yo to see the headings clearly, we warn you about up-dates and give you choices. Empty explanations, like a modern, up-to-date format, are just that empty. Nerds ≠ users. Both have value. WTF!!
