I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

I recently switched over to Firefox and am loving it. However, every time I either restart or turn off and on my computer, firefox "re-installs." It does not save my chosen theme, nor does it show my bookmarks. I have to re-log in to every website because my history is deleted. I don't save many passwords, but usually it remembers my log in to things like my email and drive which I need for work. It's become quite cumbersome because I don't want to leave my computer on or in sleep mode 24/7. Is there something I can do about this? I'm on an updated Mac laptop.

How do I get Firefox to go directly to the URL I type in the address bar instead of going to Google and doing a search for the addresses?

Hi, I have a Mac running Firefox 84.0.2 and when I type a URL in the address bar and hit return it goes directly to that site.

On my new Mac running the same version of Firefox when I type in a URL it takes me to Google.

Notice in the first screen shot I typed in 'Mozilla' and it took me directly to this page. In the second screen on my new Mac the screen shot shows what happened when I typed 'Mozilla' in the address bar. It took me to Google.

I appreciate any suggestions you might have. I have spent some time trying to figure it out.

''''I cannot download a file from a platform I attend often. This is the case since I updated Firefox. I need to remove AdBlocker Plus so I'm told.

Is there a way to sort the bookmarks in the dropdown menu?

I can sort the bookmarks (e.g. by name or date last used) in the "Show All Bookmarks" menu, but this doesn't affect the dropdown menu, which I usually use. Also, if I close the "Show All Bookmarks" menu and reopen it, they are again unsorted.

I just want to quickly navigate to websites I visit often. Having them on top of the Bookmarks dropdown menu would be very useful. Do I need a third party add-on for this?

Please note that this is the sidebar I am talking about, not the toolbar which uses browsers.toolbar.bookmarks.2h2020. I am asking for the flag if it even exists to have the ability to have the bookmarks sidebar show only when on the homepage and new tab page, akin to how the bookmarks toolbar only shows up when on those specific pages.

I have multiple google accounts on my mac and I recently switched over to Firefox. I tried to really quickly import some things and figured while I was doing it I might as well import everything. I imported all of the information from another persons google account and I'm not certain how I even managed it. It would take upwards of an hour to delete all this information and I'm not sure whether or not when I delete things like passwords on firefox if its also deleting them on google or not. I just need to undo the entire import. I don't need to figure out how to import from my google account or anything at this point I don't really care. Where I think I went wrong is it gave me the option between two google accounts one of them saying a generic name and one saying mine. I forgot that their google account is under my name and that the generic one must have been mine. Is there any way to just undo the entire import?

Since I updated to FF 85.0 (using Mac OS 10.13.6 on a MacBook Pro), articles on the Guardian website all display with text on top of the pictures, making the text illegible. I have tried deleting the cache for the Guardian sites but that hasn't helped. Articles display fine on Safari and Chrome. I have the Guardian to help but they have not yet replied. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Laurence

Hello. Quite simply, I am unable to log into my SimpliSafe home security account using Firefox 85.0 on macOS Big Sur 11.2 When attempting to do so, a perpetual loop of verification email followed by return to the original log in page occurs. Able to log in with out issue from Safari browser, so fairly certain the problem is not with SimpliSafe but rather a filter within my Firefox settings. Am not tech savvy enough to attempt changing Firefox browser settings to fix this issue. Please help, and thanks. Jeff

Often, when I logon to a familiar, frequently used website, Firefox says I'm using a new computer and sends a security code to my phone. The sites are banks, credit cards, etc. No other browser does this. Have I neglected something in the Firefox settings?

When I restarted Firefox after a freeze, I did NOT get the familiar message that lets me choose to restore all windows. When opened, Firefox showed only ONE window (the one I was working in when it froze up). The Firefox menu (upper right corner) does NOT display a Restore Previous Session option. It's as if all the windows open in my last session never existed. Is there any way I can still reopen them now?

The setting "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is on. Not sure if it is default or if I set it - but it is on on all my devices.

So far I like the idea of deleting cookies. But it is annoying that each time I open a website it asks me which cookies I want to allow.

Is there a way to keep my cookie preferences for sites but delete / forbid all further writing ???
