This is a problem unique to Firefox. Even a page that's been supposedly formatted for printing turns out with missing text or text overlaid on other text. And it's a problem that has been occurring over many iterations of the Firefox browser.

Here's an example that prints fine in Edge and Chrome: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/220867/falafels-with-yogurt-dill-sauce/?printview

What is the problem, and why can't/won't Firefox fix it?

If the vertical image is long, scroll down and it will be black and the image will not be visible. Only version 93 has bugs. If you left-click the mouse in the space next to the image, the image will appear again. But if I keep scrolling down, it's just black again.

I only use Firefox as my PC browser. I always run in private mode, so all cookies etc are deleted. I have about 100 login passwords saved, but use a FF primary password. The PC is protected at startup with the standard pin code. I never save personal data such as credit card details or addresses. Can I be confident that if I take the PC to a repair shop and leave it there it will be safe? Is there anything else I can do to make things more secure in the event of repair, or PC being stolen?

I also have MS Edge on the PC (can't seem to delete it) but all personal data is deleted.

Thanks in advance.

[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1353550. Please follow up there, thanks.]

I have problems in some favicon of bookmarks. (Wrong favicon) How can i reload favicon of a specific bookmark? There is an extension for this job : [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../|CheckMarks] But this extension has no option to reload favicon of bookmarks individually for force firefox to reload favicon of a specific bookmark! Please give me a solution on this. In some years ago there was an extension with name favicon reloader. It was ok. But does not exist anymore.

After reinstalling Firefox (to new 64-bit version), I've lost all of my favicons. I'm seeing that only way to get them back is to individually select each bookmark. Is there a way to get the bookmarks to go and automatically download their favicons so my bookmarks will be repopulated again?

Hi There, I am not able to access my gmail account on FF. It keeps defaulting to an old employment email that I have no access to.

This happens if I type "gmail.com" into the FF web-browser OR if I click on the pinned Thumbnail in a new window with FF. This issue means that I have to use another (different) browser and I want to use FF due to the integrity of the site and the mission is stands for.

How do I remove the "old" email so that I can log into my gmail using FF?

Can anyone help me resolve this issue? - thank you, Kate

When logging in to cmx.weightwatchers.com, I enter my username and password and click keep me logged in. Each time I go to their website, it still asks for my username and password. All other websites that I request to keep me logged in works fine, but this one doesn't. What can I do to correct it so that I don't have to enter all the information to get logged into that account?

Since upgrading to TB 91 (currently 91.2.0), it consistently takes 5+ minutes to start [Windows 10 Pro x64 v. 21H1], even in Safe Mode (all extensions disabled). I can see the Disk Active time pegged at 100% in the Task Manager during this time, but little to no CPU usage. I am using F-Secure Security Suite for AV (rebranded for Spectrum). Suggestions as to how to fix this?

Firefox display issues on Windows 10 21H1

I'm confused by this issue as Firefox worked fine until recently but an older version doesn't fix the problem. At first I only had issues with LibreOffice and Firefox. LO would only open in safe mode, Firefox opened but did not working correctly. The fix for LO was to disable skia so I suspect that is the cause of the Firefox issues, but it could also be a driver issue. Weird thing, Google Chrome also uses skia and although I had an issue with Chrome suddenly not loading, an uninstall/reinstall fixed it. I am aware skia is a Google project so it may be that Chrome and Firefox use different versions of skia.

Issues: Firefox opens and I have my extensions etc across the top but the main window is blank. No websites display. Switching tabs doesn't work. If I open a "More troubleshooting information" tab for example, I can only access/view that tab by closing the first tab. A few menu options work (help menu - Troubleshoot Mode and More troubleshooting information both work fine) but Settings doesn't work. I tried Firefox in safe mode but it makes no difference. I tried refreshing Firefox but it makes no difference. I tried clearing the startup cache but it makes no difference.

This is on a dual boot with Windows 10 and Ubuntu Studio 21.04. I also have Firefox v93.0 (64-bit) installed on the Linux partition and it works fine.

Using a PC desktop computer with Firefox and going to walgreens.com>upload photo (attached image showing upload photo icon on the walgreens.com home page after scrolling down) results in the attached image with a blank page and blue lettering.

Using a PC desktop computer without Firefox and going to walgreens.com>upload photo goes to the correct page in walgreens.com. Image attached. I can also get to the same destination using a cellphone which doesn't have Firefox.

Pretty much have exhausted regular troubleshooting steps. Walgreens support said it's not Walgreens doing this. What Firefox setting is wrong?

Please help! I need to check on an order from Amazon that I placed just yesterday.

Chrome is working on same sites. I use FireFox to enter sweeps and it is mostly useless to me now. I am using Windows 10, Norton SafeWeb, "Cookies are not important to me", Roboform. Can I revert to a usable version of FireFox, or can you tell me how to fix it?
