Firefox autoprints Microsoft Word and Excel documents despite setting otherwise.

about:config print.always_print_silent is now set to false. (was somehow set to true). After I set to false and reboot, same behavior occurs. I verified that same behavior does not occur in other browser.

I noticed that someone else had this question, but instead of answering it, it just got archived.

When browsing Youtube, the browser Back Button doesn't work. For example, if I start on the Youtube main page, then click on a video, it will show the video. But then, when I click the browser's "Back" navigation buttion, it does not take me back to the main page. The URL in the address bar will be the main page, but it will continue to display the video I just watched instead.

This only seems to happen on Youtube. It's been a problem for a while - possibly as much as 2 years or even more. And it doesn't happen every single time. However, it has been happening a lot more frequently lately.

It's almost as if Firefox just doesn't want to refresh.

I've tried clearing the cache. The problem persists. I've dried disabling all add-ons. It still happens. I've tried running it in troubleshooting mode. Still a problem.

I've tried to duplicate this in Microsoft Edge; it doesn't seem to happen there.

I have a question about the same topic of this older thread here -

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1257189

...when you do some of the solutions to this problem the copy-and-paste from either the vertical column or in Bookmarks manager it will copy the whole URL code as the title of the link and not what you renamed that link or its default name from its creator.

Is there a way to copy-and-paste the bookmarks WITH the already-created link names attached from the previous Firefox / Waterfox browser?

I have multiple internal websites, which all follow the pattern of [site.one.two] which resolves fine using the internal DNS server i have configured by going to https://site.one.two and through other programs via site.one.two, and all the [one.two] suffixes are blacklisted from being resolved with DoH in firefox, but it still forces a web-search, even with searching from address bar being turned off, instead of resolving through my local DNS server (local server resolves local domain suffixes, anything else gets resolved through cloudflare DNS). I haven't found a fix in any other forums, and there are enough unique internal addresses that manually adding each and [every site.one.two] as an exception would be something i would like to avoid. Is there any way to tell firefox to resolve through DNS first for addresses or domain suffixes?

I want to disable overscroll. For those who don't know: it's the bouncy animation when you use scroll using a two-finger gesture past the beginning or end of a scrollable region.

The bouncing is an animation, and with animations disabled on my system, having this animation is an accessibility issue.

I guess I could split this question in two:

1. Can Mozilla please change Firefox so that it doesn't do this animation when animations are supposed to be disabled? 2. How can I disable this overscroll behaviour manually, separately from other animations?

hi,

i updated from 88 to 115 release. i noticed the contextual menu (the one when you mouse-right-click on a bookmark in a bookmark menu) have change... there are more item, and a different sort of each feature item.

i added a screenshot to help you understand my need: i wish to delete (or move) the "add bookmark - add folder - add separator" group and put in its place the "edit/delete bookmark" group. How to do that ?

It is strange, but in 30 years of computer activities, i never saw a "delete" feature option displayed before cut/copy/paste !!!! it almost looks like a tiny bug-issue :-) Maybe i should add it to bugzilla ?

thank you for you help and advice.

I have a really niche case which there's probably no solution for but I want to ask just in case:

I'm happy with the behaviour of Firefox opening PDFs as it does currently except in one case: eBay shipping labels. When I buy a shipping label on eBay it presents two buttons: one is open and one is download. When I click download it both downloads and opens in a new tab. I can disable Firefox opening PDFs to stop that but then that affects my experience every time I try to open a PDF everywhere else.

Is there some way that I can stop Firefox from opening PDFs but only when they're opened from links that look like this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/ship/single/api/label-service/label/4049d9b7-5563-47e9-b181-6d0f50a6101e/download?printable=true&pageFormat=RAW&useImageFormat=false&attachment=true&consumer=LABELUI_SINGLE

When I go into fullscreen on firefox macos, hovering near the top shows the traffic lights (fullscreen, minimize, close window buttons) and moves everything down. This may be expected behavior, but it is very annoying as when you try to open new tabs the tab bar moves out of the way of the traffic lights, and the traffic lights area is around the size of the tab bar. Is there any way to make the traffic lights always visible or keep them from moving?
