I cannot find a separator line in the "Customize" mode since upgrading to Quantum. Is the access to this something less obvious now? How do I insert separators? I'm not referring to spaces.

On Windows, Firefox adds a pre-set command line to the Windows registry under

   HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML\shell\open\command
   HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxURL\shell\open\command 

If you change the -url in the command line to -private-window -- from

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url "%1"

to

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -private-window "%1"

-- then all external links launch in a private window.

This no longer works in FF 69. As soon as I modify "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxURL-F66A7FFE1BF331E2\shell\open\command", FF is detecting it and changes its status to "NOT your default browser".

I'd appreciate your help.

I upgraded to Quantum 69.0 64 bit a day or two ago. Today I have discovered that when I go to print a web page from FF, it does not list my home network printer as a choice. I tested other apps, e.g. Chrome and MS Word and Adobe Rdr, they all still show my home network printer in their printer list, and I was able to print to it from Chrome. I have powercycled my printer, and rebooted my WIN7 PC, no help. My home network printer lists as Canon MF4270 Daves Office. My email is daveryan.cincinnati@gmail.com

On my personal laptop, I have the Multi-Account Containers extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/) running smoothly. I'm currently on a public desktop computer , and I enabled Firefox Sync, which did a good job for passwords, bookmarks, etc, but it didn't sync any of my container info for the Multi-Account Containers add-on. I see the default containers: Personal, Work, Bank, Shopping. On my personal laptop, I have about a dozen containers. What's wrong?

First of all, there are so many articles on this site and others that don't update reflecting the huge changes recently in Autoplay options. So many settings from the past don't work or aren't even there anymore. Why are these pages not updated? Who even uses old version of this browser? 99% of the info online is irrelevant because of this sloppiness. Just go to Yahoo.com and see if anything works. Good luck with that. I did find one extension that did work (so far): Disable HTML5 Autoplay But we shouldn't need an extension to do something so basic, so intrinsic to web browsing. We all know distractions impeded our ability to get things done and cost billions every day as people's productivity sharply drops. There is nothing more distracting than a video! So its the number one thing to control. As long as you're over about 4 years old of course. Under that and we're fascinated by unfamiliar shiny objects.

So I'm curious about all the autoplay options I have in about:config and if any of these settings matter anymore, now that I have an extension that does what Firefox seems incapable of doing. When I search for autoplay, this is what I get, sorted alphabetically. I noticed that some are in bold. Why is that? And why is Mozilla so out of touch with us that they can't explain what each of these things actually does? I wonder if they even know. You should be able to hover your mouse cursor over an item and a popup should tell you what it does. Is that so difficult? Guess so.

How do you make it so, if you're viewing your history and click on a link, you aren't brought up to the top of the list, away from the area you were viewing?

If I'm viewing my history and have scrolled down to a specific section because I'm trying to recall things from a specific time frame or subject, it gets pretty obnoxious being pulled away from it every time I open one of the links. Opening them all at once helps, but it's still not very convenient.

I have upgraded to 70.0 and now there is a 6 second delay on loading first site. I have firefox starting in private mode and without a home page. this loads at its usual speed. However, when I click on a bookmark the system hangs for 6 seconds before the site is presented. Subsequent sites load rapidly as usual. I have tested with other browsers and sites and the problem is specific to Firefox and not specific to the site being load. Once loaded, if I open an additional Firefox window this loads sites rapidly. I have been using Firefox for many years and the problem has only occurred since I upgraded to 70.0.

Can anyone help please.

Win7, FF 70.0 64 bit. YouTube, Amazon, eBay, etc., don't auto login. Most have me login manually and work ok afterwards. Some after I manually login, don't transfer to member's area and request login again or see me as a guest. Some, Amazon, eBay, etc. send me a one time password. Email (aol.com) and my credit union auto logins are the only ones that works normally. I've worked thru all the related fixes I can find, but none has worked. Usually save history, tried custom history.

After installing Firefox on my new computer, do I need to do anything more than copy to the new (10) computer the final profile from my old (7) computer?

Sometime recently (as of 11/3/19) Firefox ceased to reliably print entire web pages. Instead it prints the first, last, and sometimes one middle page. The print preview function suffers the same error. Since the problem shows up in print preview I don't believe that it is related to the configuration of a specific printer. It doesn't seem to be a coding error in the web page as other browsers like IE, Chrome, and Opera render the page accurately. Because I don't print pages often, I can't tell with what version the problem showed up.

I've been through my settings and Firefox does allow me to save login info for other websites. It just refuses to allow me to save my login for Zoom.us. I thought this might be a website issue but no because I am able to save my Zoom.us login info using other browsers.

So how do I get Firefox to function correctly?

Thanks.
