The most recent Firefox for iOS is causing postage to NOT PRINT PROPERLY.... both through eBay postage as well as Pirateship.

When I try to print same label from a PC laptop, it prints fine.

I'm primarily on a MAC, and do a lot of postage, so it would be nice if there was a fix.... or workaround other than using a PC...

Thoughts?

I have a 2017 iMac, and have recently updated the OS to Monterrey, version 12.5. I believe I was on Big Sur before that.

Now, although when I start my iMac's Shut Down feature, I specify that current open windows shd be reopened, when I start up the Mac again, the Shut Down function asks me if it is OK to close the open Firefox tabs. If I remember correctly, doing that results in all those tabs being lost, and none of them appear when I reopen the Mac.

Under some circumstances that I can't remember enough to describe, the gMail windows do come up, and their contents are shown on the tabs, but are lost when I open the tabs -- instead each window changes to request a new login to gMail.

The only way I can get the old windows to be retained is to not agree that the tabs be closed and to do a Force Quit on Firefox.

I am using a very old version of Firefox (02.2 G4bit (? I think)), but under Big Sur, the exact windows were retained.

Here are my "About This Mac," and "About Firefox" displays. I don't know how to find similar info on gMail.

I brought a new system with latest OS Big Sur, I'm using Firefox v49.1 (required version) for my official purpose. So I installed this version in my Mac and it works smoothly, suddenly it quits and showing crash alert. I reinstalled again and again, but it's not worked. I fed up with this issue. Please guide me to solve this. Previously I was using Mac with High Sierra OS. That time I haven't face this issue ever.

Hi, I downloaded iMacros 8.9.7 onto an older version of Firefox, but when I click the extension the sidebar is blank. I know the add-on is there because if I move my mouse I can see there are buttons I can click.

I also recently posted a question about my Firefox screen being blank which was resolved.

Thanks

On a trusted website, for a class which I paid a lot of money to attend, I get this error message, on FireFox only: The media could not be loaded, format is not supported.

I used to LOVE Firefox,but I'm getting frigg'n irritated by it right now. Chrome and Safari both open this page. I had this same problem a few days ago, was sent a long list of possible ways to deal with it that were all over my head complicated. I chose the simplest one- to clear caches, and it worked! yay, for a couple of days, now the error is back. I there must be a different solution , or cause, than the cache one - What needs to be turned on or off, so this doesn't happen? Too complicated, too frustrating.

I'd love it if someone could give me some more ideas on this. Macbook Pro 16" 2021, IOS Monterey 12.1

Thank you!

Get back to me fast please.

I discovered a little shield next to the URL, and read up on how sometimes the tracker blocker makes sites no longer work, I imagine you are getting a lot of calls like this? So I turned it off, did a refresh, no change, did a restart, no change, turned the computer, Macbook Pro OS Monterey 12.1, off for 20 minutes. no change. I'm furious, and having a hard time dealing with this.

The error message says: ''''The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.'''' Except it's worked fine for a week now. Until this morning. Any more ideas how I can get this to work? I realize you all are volunteers, but jeepers, there must be a way to get help sooner than maybe look back occasionally see if a volunteer has seen this. I'll try a different browser.

I have consulted https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-restore-my-tabs-last-time. That article says:

-Click on the menu button [three lines at the upper right] to open the menu panel. -Click History. -Click Recently Closed Tabs.

I am using Firefox 95.0.2 for Mac (iOS 10.15.7). There is no "Recently Closed Tabs" option to click after clicking on History per the above instruction. I have saved various files from the time of the crash, in particular "previous.jsonlz4" (a 20.6 MB file, as I had a very large number of tabs open). Is there any way to use this or some other file to restore my old tabs?
