The time is wrong on anything that shows the time in firefox. Emails show a time of 5:47 right now when it is only 1:47 where I am Eastern time. This happens on emails, messenger texts, text program texts, etc... Is there a way to correct this? Please help. I really like using firefox but this is driving me crazy.

This morning Firefox said it was redesigned, and now I can't see the borders of my tabs. I want to go back to where I can see the borders of my tabs rather than having the tab labels just free-floating, which is confusing to me. How do I revert?

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!!

I have several different devices that seem to all lose the ability to sync (mostly bookmarks are obvious since those change much more often than anything else I'm syncing). I try manual sync and that occasionally works but at least once a month or so I have to disconnect a device and reconnect it to my FireFox account. Is there a log to review for this sort of thing? Is there a good way to tell which device is failing to sync (i.e. is one failing to upload something or is another one failing to download that info?) Thanks!

Hi,

i want to standard uncheck the checkbox "Remember this decision" for pfx certificates. We use several certificates on one specific website and if the user forgets to uncheck, he'll panic because of the missing window that contains the other certificates. The key security.remember_cert_checkbox_default_setting under about:config works,... unfortunately I'd like to rollout the setting for the whole company,..... and the Dword reg key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Mozilla\lockPref\security.remember_cert_checkbox_default_setting" set to "0" seems to have no effect on the setting after reboot...

I appreciate your help.

Earlier in the year, I changed from Firefox to Waterfox because Firefox changed the print interface from a simple to use interface to a much more complicated interface. When I print a website page, I like to print only the required information and not waste paper. So I like to have page number right up front not hidden 3 clicks down. I also like to have general sizes offer in a pull down menu not having to find the size option and then erasing the option available and retyping something else. Can the old print user interface be offered as an add-on for those of us that liked it? Or can you cleanup the new version?

Firefox 94.0 on Windows 11 Will Not Open Maximized

Firefox 94.0 (64 bit) is installed on Windows 11 Pro 21H2 (build 22000.282). It is launched from a desktop icon. "Run" is set to "Maximized" in the shortcut tab of the icon's properties dialog.

Firefox opens in an approximately square window almost the height of the screen between the taskbar and the top of the screen. This appears to be the same size as the larger pane in the Windows 11 two-unequal-pane snap layout, but the pane is shifted to the right.

Clicking on the maximize button maximizes the Firefox window.

Did adding the ability to take advantage of the Windows 11 snap layouts (a good thing) disable the ability to comply with the Run setting in the shortcut properties dialog?

I am aware that the feature to set character encoding is replaced by something called "repair" encoding in recent versions of Firefox. Now I just want to know that: assume that I cannot control the web content being displayed,

is it absolutely impossible to set custom encoding in latest Firefox?

Thanks a lot!

P.S.: PLEASE don't tell me why I shouldn't do this. No, I don't want to know that.

Home page icon shows up on the toolbar, ONLY ON THE HOME PAGE. Yes, I have Firefox set up to show home page icon for a NEW tab/window, and this works fine. But when I use one of these windows to go to another url, the icon disappears. The purpose of a Home Page is something you can return to easily from any other url. Now, to get back to the Home Page, I HAVE TO CREATE another tab, and then close that previous tab (because I no longer need it).

This is a bug, on a Mac Air M1 laptop on OS11.3.1, running FF 91.3.0esr. It's also an annoyance.

TIA

Firefox ESR91.3 Silent Mode Print

We use Firefox in our small business to deliver web-based apps for visitor sign-in at schools. We specify Firefox ESR primarily because of the Silent Print feature and the fact it is much easier to enable in Firefox than other major browsers.

With the ESR 91 release we began getting reports from customers that our web-app was no printing the name tags to a locally connected label printer. The printer has been checked. Drivers are installed and updated. The target label printer is designated as the default for the Win-PC station.

The config of the Firefox print function has been verified so that it is targeting the right local device and has the relevant print settings correct.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = TRUE the sign-in process completes and no name tag is printed to the label printer.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = FALSE the sign-in process completes, the print dialog pops and upon clicking the PRINT button the name tag prints to the label printer.

What's up with the PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT setting? It used to work, when we were running ESR78. Silent printing has been our selling point to run Firefox on hundreds of PC/Win (and Mac) workstations across our customer sites. Without this feature enabled and working, our customers are going to start asking to move back to Chrome or Edge.

Another beginner question: How could I let the developer tools show me all javascript accessible functions of the textarea I'm right now writing in?

I could bet that was possible before updated some days ago. (I wasn't doing anything programming and developer tools for some months, so I seem to have forgotten a lot.)

I know I could iterate over the object by self written javascript, but isn't that overview available directly in the developers tools?

I cancelled my LinkedIn account about 5 years ago and haven't used it since then. I am therefore puzzled as to why it keeps showing up as having had a "data breach" and why this matters at all?! There was also some "data breach" in regard to a website for Avatars?! I have never heard of this website and can't imagine why I would ever use it! Why did this show up as a breach in my account?!

In regard to the specific accounts which have had a data breach, I have either cancelled them, deleted them, or have no memory of ever having used them in the first place. I have also changed my passwords for all of my email accounts, many times over the past 5 years, so again, I have no idea how information from a cancelled account could be of use to anyone. Can someone explain this to me?! Thank you!
