I am sorry to invoke other browsers here, but I have switched from Chrome and found one feature to be completely intuitive there and impossible in FireFox. I have multiple profiles and want to open external links in the most recently active window. With Chrome, this was as simple as activating the window to open an external link in, then running the external link normally. In Chrome the link would open in any window that was recently active, including private windows. In FireFox it will only open in the first opened window of the first opened profile. I have not found an intuitive way of handling this in FireFox. Is there a setting or trick to it that doesn't involve rewriting URLs?

Hello! I switched to firefox a few months ago. It worked okay with my rollo printer (printing mailing labels) for awhile, but it's suddenly not working right. Labels print off at strange sizes and with garbled images and text. It works fine if I print from chrome or from my desktop; just not from the firefox browser. I'm wondering if there was an update recently that broke it and I'm really hoping it can be fixed, because I'd like to keep using this but I run a business and it's far too irritating to have to keep switching to chrome to print stuff... I also am positive this is a firefox issue because my partner is suddenly experiencing the same issue after switching from chrome.

Why is Firefox limiting my file name to 3-5 characters instead of the full name as the original document? My Gmail Workspace account is a business account so I need to retain proper naming conventions and original names for files, but Firefox seems to be shortening the file names, and I'm having to completely rename. I can't find any information on how to override this if it's a setting or if anyone else is having the same problem.

I am running Firefox 103.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.4.

Thanks in advance.

Good day MOZILLA! Printing doesnt work properly with new update - seems like PDF issues...

When we print .. the preview is fine but it prints like in zoom mode.. only quarter of page... so


1. Seems to be isolated to only certain PDF's ... when printing from the print function within firefox 2. SAVING a print as "PDF" - also one of my team's when she "prints" to a PDF and saves it saves this ZOOMed in mode 3. PRINTING a PDF from WEBSITE - not downloading it, just printing straight from website - im trying to print 3 pages... it zooms in i only get a 1/4 page...of each page (so i only get partial pages that print 4. from google docs i couldnt print an "image" that i added to the DOC... more specifically a LOGO that i added onto the DOC would not print properly... it looked like zoomed in and only printed about a 1/4 of the logo... straight from the DOC... I had to download as a PDF then it printed fine... but i downloaded the PDF from google docs... not originating from the "print" function inside FIREFOX.


My trouble shoots 1. shut everything down turn back on 2. uninstall printer reinstall 3. use a different browser (BOOM EVERYTHING WORKED FINE) 4. so looked at update history for firefox sure enough started right around that time.. 5. so i reverted back to OLD VERSION... (BOOM EVERYTHING IS FINE) 6. Updated to new version again (no working again :(


Ok.. well hopefully we can get an update on this

HI, Had to fill in an encrypted form (here in the UK) from a Canadian Bank to finalise setup of a new account. On completion and attempted submission, Firefox wouldn't allow the IP address 192.168.0.1 (I'm using a D-Link USB G4 dongle) to send. It refused because the IP address is not secure. Is this a problem with the dongle (USB hardware, my G4 provider, or something in my computer, provider, or Firefox settings?

Hi,

I have a web application which runs perfectly on firefox versions below 103. Meanwhile, I had to change my laptop and I installed latest firefox version on my new laptop. I have a login page in my web application which isn't working in the latest firefox version. But, the application works perfectly even now in the older versions below 103. What might be the reason?

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure what I did when using Multi Account Containers (Must have clicked "yes" to always open in a specific container when accessing Microsoft, www.office.com. I enter user name and password and Firefox containers prompts me to Always open in container and I click no. It's like I'm stuck in an endless loop, each time I enter user name, password and two-factor a new tab opens and I have to do it all over again (Never getting into office.com). However, when using private windows I am able to get in. Can I turn off, "Always open in X container"? Thank you.

Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

best, Sea
