Due to printer software I am forced to migrate family laptop from linux mint to windows 10 Both systems use version 82.0 (64bit), firefox just got installed on fresh windows 10 install, I opened it browsed a little to create history files and closed to swap it with linux history/passwords/tabs/bookmarks But in windows 10 firefox seem to have different file structure, and didn't recognize old version Have file structure changed or there are steps I missed or (unlikely) I messed up with file location, main mozilla/firefox folder path is still there

Will online synchronization of firefox just be as good as hard file copy from one system from another? I think this might be easiest, yet not perfect solution

YouTube works in all other browsers. I have restarted Firefox, uninstalled it and reinstalled fresh, nothing seems to work. Disabling addons does nothing. When I go to watch a video, I press the play button, the video loads sluggishly, and when loading is finished, before the video starts, I get "An error occured. Please try again later. (Playback ID: _______)". Vimeo works fine, but some news sites have the same issue. I have also tried just signing out of YouTube, and that does not work either.

When I have multiple pages open and navigate off the page and work on something else using another program, When I hove over the Firefox icon in my Windows 10 taskbar it shows multiple pages in the fly out menu. What I'd rather have is simply a return to all the full screen tabs. The issue is intermittent, due to my newness to Firefox. Is there some way to change this?

When I print out a multi-page description of a specific mutual fund, Firefox just omits in the middle of the printout several sections of information, without even leaving blank spaces for the omissions. If I go over to Edge for the same page, the printout is complete and perfect. This has been my long-term experience of Firefox compared to other major browsers. I have already implemented all of the advice on good printouts on Firefox, margins and other settings and so forth. When I posted about this issue perhaps two years ago, someone posted back that Firefox had never been designed to be a complete browser, and that printing had never been fully developed. I cannot know if that is a true statement, but I can say it fits the facts as I experience them. I remain puzzled as to why Firefox would ignore major printing issues to this degree, unless there is just some internal viewpoint that printing is wasteful and rarely really needed. If I want to look at five mutual funds, I want to print out their basics and spread those printouts on the table and look at all five at once. The computer screen has a limited space and does not well allow for that, not in a time-effective way. Printing in moderation is very useful and important. MY QUESTION: Will Firefox ever be made competitive with Edge and Chrome on the printing function?

When I try to log in to my Amazon account, I get to the password box, and it is filled with dots that can't be erased so I can't enter my password. Efforts to reset my password fail because the code sent by Amazon to my phone can't be entered because the password box is filled with dots. I can log in just fine from Chrome.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

After latest Windows 10 update (2004 or I don't know firefox is telling me I have Windows_NT 10.0 19041 so who knows) about month ago and after that Firefox keeps randomly crashing into desktop. It happens about 6-7 times in a hour! 95% of the time even crash report doesn't show up so I can't send my crash report to firefox. I have updated Firefox, downgraded it, disabled all add-ons I have tried that "media.wmf.vp9.enabled" trick and it doesn't work

What to do? I like firefox and I dont want to use Edge or Chrome. Is reinstalling Windows my only option?

Why won't the bookmark in 'Other BookMarks' go away when I 'move' it (drag and drop) to where I want it in my saved bookmark directories? This is a copy not a move and I want a move function.

Why can't I delete a BookMark from 'Other BookMarks' without the same bookmark getting deleted where I sorted it (there is a link that shouldn't be there).

both these issues make it impossible to manage 'Other Bookmarks' and keep it tidy and minimal

I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

Hi, I have been using Ubuntu Mate, for some time now, since the latest installed versions, Firefox is unable to print the invoices generated by the revenue agencies site. The print is generated empty, it only shows the details of the site and some accessory data at the top. I tried to install an old version, 78, if I remember correctly, and the prints are fine. I tried with another browser and the printouts are correct, again. Does it happen to you too?
