I have AVAST running on my computer in passive mode; I simply have not bothered to remove it, fearing screwing something up. Now, AVAST has stripped all my saved passwords from FIREFOX. Can I load these back into Firefox from my renegade AVAST?

Firefox just installed updates, now I just get the tabs pop-up list when I click the Firefox icon on the taskbar. (see image) I want to open tabs to full screen like before, not see the list. How do I change that? Also, it looks like there are 2 instances of Firefox open (double icons on taskbar), but I can't find the other one.

Hello, when I place a .lnk file for Firefox in my Autostart Folder and I restart my PC and log in a Firefox Window is open but some things don't work:

-Bookmark-Bar doesn't load properly. -Right Click/Addon Windows doesn't work. -Fullscreen Mode is weird.

I think it may have something to do with Firefox unable to read User-Files when I am not logged in?

I start using FireFox instead of Google Chrome, but looks like I have no choice but to go back to Chrome because of constant problems with printing. And I am not even talking about the problems with SSL that I have to download and install the certificates one by one for each websites I am using. I did search everywhere and saw that I am not the only one and this problem is a permanent resident of all forums. All other browsers are working perfectly well, and just the FireFox can't get the problem fixed for over 10 years now. I have tried all support remedies and nothing is working. Deleting, resetting, you name it I have done it. In some remote forum found about the print.paper.data value setting, changing it from 256 to 1. Right now it worked and I will see if it will come back tomorrow. When I reset the setting the print.paper.data setting disappears. So resetting was not the best choice.

Suddenly, my icon for Firefox on my Mac has a gray line about 80% down from the top. Just the icon, not the pages I reach. I very recently tried to download my FB file, which is sitting, zipped, on my desktop (I can't open it). So, perhaps they are connected --or not. Any idea?

I have a need to interrupt or stop the downloading of immaterial content from obnoxious and inconsiderate web sites without closing the Firefox session. A fix might include the immediate transfer to a link when selected. Animations, videos, and advertisements have ruined the browsing experience I have enjoyed since 1998.

Printer tech here, I was troubleshooting a Sharp printer and ran into a strange issue when printing from Firefox. Client has a MAC - OS 10.13 I'm sorry I don't know offhand what version of FF it was but I can tell you that I was told "this is the latest version" when I attempted to update it.

It prints some fonts (webpage headings only perhaps) in a double print/font that makes it appear a bit garbled and unattractive. I'm quite certain it is not a printer issue because the same page prints fine from Chrome and iexplore. This forum will not adequately upload my sample images so I have posted them here: Firefox erroneous printing: https://i.imgur.com/KZ2kTTw.jpg (captain obvious put the bad print in red blocks for you) Chrome printing: https://i.imgur.com/PYuGH6a.jpg iexplore printing: https://i.imgur.com/qzBDXHE.jpg (BTW support folks I uploaded all three images to imgur, thought through, typed and posted this message before the first image was able to upload here...You may wanna take a look at that)

My client showed me several webpages he was having problems with, my samples are all the same page which is http://siica.sharpusa.com/product-downloads

What I have tried: All suggestions listed at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox, including -Changing the default font -Resetting the Firefox printer settings -Resetting ALL Firefox printer settings (removed any lines containing "_print" in the the prefs.js file)


Any suggestions or assistance is greatly appreciated!

Hi!

I'm running Ubuntu 17.10, with Firefox 59.0.2. I am unable to open a private session at the same time as I have a regular session open.

Also, if I start by opening a private session, I CAN open a regular session afterwards. However, whenever I do open them in that order, the regular session acts just like a private session, i.e. does not remember history, even though it does not have that purple "private color" on the start page.

I'm using the commands "firefox" in terminal to run a regular session and "firefox -private" to run a private session.

Does anyone know of a fix?

This isn't a question, just reporting a consistent problem which has become very annoying.

64bit Firefox running in a VM (VMware workstation) often, make that, very often - 8 times out of 10 - fails to resolve a web site (get the ip for the site), after selecting "try again", it usually finds it but, this results in a 5 to 10 second delay _every time_.

There is no pattern to the web sites Firefox has trouble resolving. It can't find Google, Microsoft and other sizeable web sites. Smaller web sites are guaranteed to not be accessed on the first try.

I should note that Google Chrome does not have that problem. Given this situation, if you wonder why I am not using Chrome instead of Firefox, it is because Google Chrome doesn't allow accessing Wikipedia which I use all the time.

I am seriously considering giving Safari a try. Too much time wasted waiting for Firefox to find the Himalayas of the internet.

Thank you and my apologies for the mild rant at the end.
