On macOS with Apple M1 the Save as PDF creates huge files. As alluded to in a now closed question/issue with same title, Firefox apparently renders the file as an image. Using system dialogue to print results in the same large file size.

An example .htm file with 2 embedded images saved as PDF from Firefox is 26MB (typically too large to email), while saving same file in Safari results in a 2.4MB file.

My recollection is that the behavior is similar on Apple X86.

This feels like a bug.

Hi All, I have local HDD saved 3D web view models (Vectorworks) that i can no longer open in firefox 95 and it says to disable CORS in order to open them. Previously on firefox 92 i could view them after changing security settings by typing "about:config" into the URL bar then "file_unique_origin" in the search bar where i could change it from "true" to "false". However this work around no longer works in 95. It says to disable CORS but after googling i still cant figure out how to do so?

Any help greatly appreciated as i'm now running firefox 92 again to view them but the constant update notification pop-up is really annoying.

Whenever I use Firefox, I have an issue once a day where the browser freezes momentarily, flickers, blacks out tabs and other portions of the browser/text, and then resumes. I have had this issue since Day 1, and no amount of Windows updates + Firefox updates has resolved this.

This also occurred when I was using stable versions of Firefox ARM64.

Specs: Firefox ARM 92.0b8 64-bit Surface Pro X 2 (2020) OS: Windows 10 Pro v21H1, Build 19043.1165

Attached is a screenshot of what it usually looks like when this occurs. Please advise.

Hi, Since the last update, when I click on a link, the new tab can't be launched. It opens and closed immediatly. I have to click a second time to open it. It is the same problem when I open a new tab manually, I type web address, and when I click on "Enter", the tab closes... I have to do it again and it works. It is not the first time. Next year, after an update, I had the same problem. No change on my systems (Windows 10) and on my MacBook too... Is there anyone who have the same problem ? How to resolve it ? Thank you

Firefox times out when connecting to a site with URL redirection unless HTTPS protocol is explicitly typed

I am running Firefox Developer Edition 92.0b9 on macOS Monterey 12.0 Beta 6 (21A5506j).

I noticed lately that I couldn't open some sites, either when I tried to follow a link or typed the URL in the address bar. After a few trials and errors, I think I have identified a pattern but no idea of what the root cause is:

  • the sites I am trying to access all redirect to a different URL;
  • I can open the sites just fine if I explicitly type `https://` in the address bar.

A few of the sites I am struggling with:

I noticed that I could open the above URLs just fine in a Private window, so tried the following to no avail:

  • Clear cache;
  • Restart Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode (still on as I am writing this);
  • Install Firefox Beta side-by-side;
  • Completely uninstall Firefox and remove the existing profile, before doing a fresh install.

None of the above solutions work and I am a bit stumped. Safari, Chrome and Brave all work fine.

When some websites use DRM Software's I must Disable my extensions to play the video. How can I disable the add-ons to the specific website? And if it cannot be done how can I disable all my extensions at once. Without un-ticking one by one?

Because every time I visit the website with DRM I must Go one by one to disable my add-ons.

Hello! I understand that Google just updated Gmail's chat feature, and I wanted to report that I'm having issues opening chats in Gmail's new UI. Whenever I click on a name, the chat bubble does not open in Firefox, even when chats open in other browsers.

I've been able to replicate this issue in Troubleshoot mode, so I don't believe the problem is with any of my add-ons.

Any advice/is this a known issue?

My menu items are now (9/7/2021) White and double-spaced. Why does FireFox change things that don't need changing with no path back. First, they changed menu color to default to another (I think same as Toolbar color) with no recourse. Now the menus are white and double spaced (today! out of the blue sky!!). FireFox, at LEAST make these features configurable. Why do you do this?

Good morning. I have been using Firefox for a long time, but yesterday this message appeared:

Redirect loop

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this resource in such a way that it cannot be completed.

    This problem may occur as a result of blocking or rejecting cookies. 

It appears only when I want to enter the name of the item on the field auction in Poland: https://allegro.pl/

There was never such a problem before. I can use this page, but I cannot enter any data. I sell a lot through it and I need it very much. I have cleared cookies for this site. It didn't do anything. The page opens normally on the other browser I used to check. I don't know what I can do to fix the problem. Please help.

PS. I attach a photo of the error. The inscriptions are in my language, i.e. in Polish.

Hi--

I recently changed redirection for several of my domains (e.g. 695minnesota.com and dopesession.com)--previously, the redirection was handled by my DNS provider (DNS Made Easy), but I recently changed it to happen at the registrar level (Namesilo). It's been 72 hours since the change, but FF will not load the sites at all. Here's what I've done:

  • Flushed local DNS cache (in windows, ipconfig/flushdns).
  • Cleared browser cache
  • requested Cloudflare (what my routers and PCs use for DNS) to purge the cache for these 2 sites
  • set proxy to "none" in FF settings
  • disabled DNS over HTTPS

Using IE and Edge, the sites redirect to the correct sites just fine. But FF refuses to load anything at all--I've tried various computers (and my iphone running FF) on various networks, no luck. Using the network inspector, I sometimes get a ns_binding_aborted error (on Windows). FF on iOS gives me a request timed out (NSURLErrorDomain).

I'm running FF 92.0 x64 on Win 10 x64.

Any ideas what is going on here?

Thanks! Sandheep

I have a desktop using Windows 7 and a laptop using Windows 10.

For some reason, a folder containing several bookmarked websites disappeared from my desktop bookmark side panel. That folder is on my laptop so all is not lost.

My question is which computer should I be at when pressing the synch button? I want the folder containing the websites to be on my desktop as well as my laptop.
