While I appreciate the recent improvements to the Firefox Print interface and features, there are still lingering formatting issues that have existed for a very long time. The most common issue is that portions of content get cut off between pages. Here is one example:

https://www.nolas.com/home/#menus - click FOOD category near top - open Print (does not matter if "Save to PDF" or printer is selected) - default print settings

In the print preview (left side), printed page or saved PDF there are missing parts of text: - beginning of page 4 cuts off from "SHARE PLATES" to half-way through the first item's description. - top of page 8 (under "NOLA CLASSICS") one of the 6 items is missing entirely.

This issue remains even when using different scale factors.

Tested on current software: - Firefox 86.0.1 (new profile) - macOS 10.12 -through- 10.15

Showing all passwords in a list view as it was in the old password manager was really helpful. I tried to install this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3062276

But unfortunately with the newest Firefox 84 it is not working anymore. I get an error message.

Is there any other possibility to reactivate the old password manager? There are countless of people and threads on the internet wanting this feature back. Mozilla made a step backwards here unfortunately.

Thank you for your help!

Hi,

Due to issues with a windows update, my computer went through 2 clean installs recently. After the first one, I was able to download Firefox, log in, and sync all my previous extensions and bookmarks. However, after the second clean install, I just logged into Firefox and it did not bring up any of my previous bookmarks or extensions. Where did they go? How can I get them back?

Please help. Thanks,

Hi

I’ve been trying to access some sites for a couple of weeks or more (from the last update) and an unsafe connection is identified to me. The page has no possibility to send Mozilla any feedback. The paradox is that even the forum Mozillaitalia.org results with an unsafe connection.

What to do in order to be able to enter the sites in which I have always entered and which are now unsafe?

Thank you

A few days ago Microsoft Print to PDF stopped working properly in Firefox 87.0 (64 bit) running in Windows 10. Microsoft Print to PDF functions properly in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Excel/Word/Outlook, etc.

As attached, in Firefox after pressing CTL-P (or select File>Print) the print preview window is displayed. When I click Print a PDF file is created. When I open that file I receive the attached error message advising that the file cannot be opened, etc.

I have executed many of the recommended solutions; none of resolved the issue. I refreshed Firefox; that did not resolve the issue. I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folder in APPDATA rebooted and reinstalled Firefox; that did not resolve the issue.

No recent software installations or upgrades, etc.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations, Bill

Items in my Bookmarks toolbar (and the overflow bookmarks list) keep rearranging themselves. I put them back in order, then every time I open Firefox, they rearrange again. I've read through and tried everything suggested in the discussions and articles except the refresh, with I'd prefer not to do if it's not absolutely necessary. Nothing else suggested has worked. Any help will be appreciated. I believe this started after the last Firefox update. This is getting frustrating to the point I'm ready to stop using Firefox altogether. Thank you!

Hi!

Does WebRender gets disable by default in Firefox 87 Snap?

I use Firefox as an Ubuntu Snap. In Firefox 86 (snap version) I got WebRender enable by default, I check the about:support and run some benchmark to confirm that WebRender was enable and everything seems good! But now with this update I no longer have webrender enable by default, I test the apt package of firefox 87 and webrender is enable by default in Ubuntu 20.10.

Can someone please confirm that WebRender is disable by default on the snap version of FF 87 and why?

Thanks!!! <3 FF

Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

I am writing a program that requires me to detect when a shift key is pressed and do something. Something like

window.addEventListener('keydown', event => console.log(event), false); // expect to see an event logged to console when pushing the "shift" key

This works great on all browsers except Firefox. "alt" and "fn" keys are also not able to be detected on Firefox. Is there some sort of advanced security settings I can disable to let me capture these things?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

Have a new Dell XPS, using Chrome as my primary browser.. however its a pig on power consumption. I recently switched back to Windows, was a iOS user for last 10 years.. Remember the good Windows XP Firefox days...

I am unable to go back using the track pad, my gesture when I swipe with two fingers from left to right doesn't work... However this works just fine on MS Edge, or on Chrome. I am able to scroll up and down, and zoom in and out of text using my track pad, but my back gesture doesn't work... Has anyone had this issue before?

All the best, GB

Normally with LastPass you can get LastPass to open a protected web site in a new tab, then populate the login fields, typically user name and password or secondly you can open the website login page, and select the Last Pass icon, either directly from the website login field or from the LastPass icon on the Firefox bar and select 'fill'.

Now I sign into Lastpass (using the icon on the address bar), and the Lastpass dialogue box appears, instead of the dialogue box 'populating', it remains blank. Likewise for all the other options above.

LastPass support have suggested using different browsers. Embarrassingly, I reluctantly installed EDGE, and it works normally! I don't want to use EDGE!

Clearly something has changed?
