I notice that this problem was reported way back in 2021, but rather than being resolved it was archived ! Well I suppose that's one way of whittling down problems logged on your stack of problems.

I am using 103.0.1 on a Mac Mini running macOS Mojave.

Like you, I'm being lazy and rather than typing a complete explanation of my own, I've simple cut and pasted the description from your previous complainant.

This action is prevalent when I close the right-most tab and whammo, full screen which then causes me to have to mess around to get the window back to the size I WANT IT, and not full screen as your software would seem to want it !

        • Previous complaint ****

Using latest version of Firefox for Mac (although this problem happened with some previous versions as well).

When I have more than one tab open, and I click the X at the corner of a tab to close it, my Firefox window suddenly jumps to full screen. I have to drag the browser window from the edge to get it back to my original size. This behavior happens at other odd times as well, and the suddenly jumping to full screen gets really annoying. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this problem?

        • End of previous complaint ****

I suppose that one potential fix would be to ditch Firefox and revert to Safari, what do you reckon ? I wonder if Safari exhibits this extremely PERVERSE way of working ?

Best regards

Since the last couple days my printing from Firefox is having issues. For instance, if I try to print a label for my Etsy shop, it shows correctly in the print preview but when it prints it enlarges the label so big that you only see a quarter of it printed on the page. Also, if I try to print a pdf from a page, any images that are in the pdf are also getting blown up to the point they're not viewable but the type is correct. I've tried in other browsers and it's fine in all of them. I also tried to clear the saved print settings as was recommended in another thread but that didn't work. Only work around is to download the label or pdf and then print through my Acrobat reader.

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

When you visit a specific page on the site from the theme, after a few seconds, the computer freezes completely. Such that even the mouse stops moving. I checked several times - the problem is connected precisely with Firefox and with this page and nothing else. On the third hang, the firefox.exe file was even deleted and I reinstalled it with the transfer of the profile. Closing this page until it has time to boot has solved the problem of computer freezing. Is this observed in everyone? https://worldoftanks.ru/ru/news/special-offers/wot-12th-anniversary/

Downloading with Firefox stops repeatedly and is very annoying.

Sometimes first get the following message that Firefox "..nloads\CZ5EEAZM.exe.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of the server. " (see sattach creenshot)


After pressing repeat too many times, the file will finally be downloaded. Sometimes it doesn't work and Firefox crashes.

Question, who recognizes the problem and more importantly how do I solve it?
