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.

I understand that this folder is used by websites to store information on your disk, such as site preferences etc. Is that correct?

Thanks.

bold textWhen I open a Firefox Browser window I do not Goddamn want a "Firefox pop-up!" Wanted to go to an account and had a 'Colorful" popup form Firefox that locked the goddfamn window! Had to close browser...went back and same. Shut the PC down and repoened and it was OK. Have had this happen before. Settings and pop-up blockers all working OK - it is your site causing this. What do you want me to do - go to Chrome or Bing or ??? This is a complaint. No reply needed. Fix this or I will go elsewhere. V/r, Dennis Phillips djphillips@cox.net (a 20+ year Mozilla supporter.)

Links won't open. If I click on a link on one page (e.g. email) the link won't open. Even to get to this page from Firefox help I had to use Google.

I've been using a saved search on eBay for years. A month or so ago when I ran the search [I'll use figures from early this morning as an example] for the toy BAYKO it told me there were about 520 items [which should take up 11 pages]. The page count along the bottom stopped at 8 throughout. I scanned through the pages and, everything was fine on pages 1-6 and 8. However, page 7 [regardless of which way I moved to it] said zero matching items had been found. This is not an eBay problem as Chrome displayed everything, including page 7, correctly - please advise.

selfProliferating Bookmarks by ScottEllington ScottEllington | 6 hours ago | in Using bookmarks and history Closed to the community Hidden

I come not to share an idea, but to identify a problem. I stopped browsing with Firefox several months ago upon realizing that my bookmarks were obviously copulating like rabbits. Just this morning, I deleted upwards of 22,000 redundant bookmarks (all but a tiny handful of my legitimates) and now, even as I watch they're back up to 22,183 and the bookmarks bar is shimmering with activity.

The attachment is a screenshot saved in a .docx, showing my Firefox bookmarks folder on the left, brimming with 22,183 files. And on the right is this page open in Firefox with my bookmark bar shimmering with metaphorical rabbit droppings.

The redundant _Homes folders contain nothing visible.

The redundant BookmarksBar folders contain legitimate bookmarks, some of which are redundant, along with a varying number of empty _Homes folders.

I select one _Homes folder in the Manage Your Bookmarks Library dialogue, and SELECT ALL to determine the number in my Bookmarks Toolbar = 22,183, BUT the oldest file, according to the "Added" column is about ten minutes old.

Help/NoHelp...I thought this problem ought to be known.

Just recently on one of the games I play on Facebook and I receive or send gifts a pop of box appears briefly and then disappears as quickly as it appeared. Why is this happening? It doesn't affect anything, it is just annoying. I would have liked to add an image but it is to quick to get it.

I just switched my VOIP service to ooma. Starting sunday i got the account and login all set up. Visited several times sunday and this(monday) morning. Starting this afternoon i an unable to pull up the site using firefox unless i use a private window(works fine that way). Edge also lets me login to my account with out any issues. If use a google search to take me to a login screen i get "problem loading page" and "the page isnt redirecting properly". If i click on my saved bookmark /tile to go there i get "we're sorry, but something went wrong" and "If you are the application owner check the logs for more information." I have no clue what logs they are talking about...I dont know why it stopped working. I tried looking through settings for something and turning off ublock for that site(even though it previously was fine) without any change. Can someone provide some insight.

The jocular message "GAH your tab just crashed" is annoying because the program (Firefox) ought to apologise and empathise; instead it makes a joke about a situation which is very annoying and frustrating. It feels like when a friend lets you down and instead of apologising they make you feel worse by saying something callous and patronising like "Tough! Well just live with it." Please replace it with something more appropriate.

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?
