Hi community,

I have a problem I couldn't find any answers for. My settings are set to "always ask where to save files". (Screenshot 1)

If I save a file I get the Save As dialog (Screenshot 2). I select a folder and click on Save. The file always ends up in my download folder (Screenshot 3). In some cases even if I change the file name it gets ignored as you can see in the third screenshot with the second file from the top.

The setting in options is totally ignore, files are always saved into the download folder under my profile.

Firefox Version 82.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank s

Peter

Hello

I'd like to ask you to help me disable a keyboard shortcut. I have CoolerMaster masterkeys keyboard and it has Play/Pause key that can be used by clicking Fn + Insert. Before the last update the function worked as it should - when I was listening to music using either Spotify or Foobar and used the play/pause key, it only had effect on those applications (even though I had Firefox open).

Now, since last update, the shortcut also has effect on Firefox - for example I'm listening to music with Foobar and have a Youtube tab in Firefox with a video stopped and when I use the shortcut - play/pause is done on both of the applications - Foobar and Firefox. It is really annoying and unwanted behavior.

I'm not sure if it has something to do with Firefox. But maybe there is some kind of configuration that can be applied to mitigate this behavior?

I'm using Windows 10, just so you know.

Thank you,

I have a windows 10 pc, using Firefox, with both a wired and wireless printer. When I go to print from various web sites, I get a print window pop up. It shows a full size page output. Depending upon the site, the actual print output size varies from about 30 percent of the paper size to more than 100%, leaving some of the page overflowing. For example, when I go to print a Washington post crossword puzzle, it properly fills the page, without changing any setting, if I go to print the Wall Street Journal puzzle, it appears to be reduced in size by more than half.

If I close the pop up, and open the Firefox menu and click on the print icon, I get a page which shows the item to be printed, and I note that the scale option is set to 70%. This apparently works fine for the WAPO puzzle, but renders the puzzle too small for the WSJ. To get the WSJ puzzle full size, I have to change the scale option to 150%, which, of course, renders the output much to large. Another site requires a 100% scale option to produce the proper size output.

I can find no way on the pop up print control to change the scale option or any way to make all of these sites print the proper size without changing the scale option.

I am trying to stop autoplay on Tubi. I have tried everything from this topic: [[Firefox block autoplay not working, preferences are showing "Block Audio and Video"|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278114#answer-1283973]] None of it works, modifying this option breaks Tubi playback completely: media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 , option 1 does nothing. I am at my wits end trying to stop auto playback on Tubi with FireFox. I tried another browser and auto playback is disabled easily on Tubi, and works as expected. I hope someone has figured this out for Tubi! Mark

Firefox version 82.0.2 (64-bit) I can no longer use Firefox to view Facebook. Within minutes Firefox slows down and no longer responds. I had a similar problem previously with some builds of Firefox but not this bad. Seems like the problem is fixed in one build and then re broken in a newer build. I even get a warning from Firefox that the page is slowing down Firefox. Never seen this before 82.0.2 (64-bit). I can use Chrome, Edge or Opera just fine. The trouble is I'm a Firefox user and have been since the beta builds back in the stone age. Anyone else have this problem.

Touch Keyboard Not Opening In Tablet Mode

Whenever I try to use the address bar in tablet mode, the touch keyboard opens and then is immediately closed. The same occurs when the touch keyboard is opened via the taskbar. This is making Firefox almost impossible to use in tablet mode.

This does not occur when using the ease of access keyboard via Windows 10 accessibility settings, which prevents the tablet mode keyboard from appearing, but the keyboard may as well be folded back out at this point.

"Show a touch keyboard when necessary" is enabled in options. Touch/tablet mode is enabled in preferences. These have been cycled on and off with no effect other than the touch keyboard not opening in the first place when the former is disabled.

The app appears shift and flicker when the address bar is tapped to search and the keyboard opens and closes again.

Running on HP Pavillion x360 14", using a 1080p display.

I believe the latest updates for Firefox made some changes so that a fixed background image in a WordPress cover block does not stay fixed. It used to work about 2 weeks ago, now it does not. But, the fixed background behaves as expected in MS Edge.

https://www.cemalekin.com/test/layout-test/ https://www.cemalekin.com/test/test-page/

In the first linked page there is one such block, in the second one there are two. None works in Firefox, either on my Surface Book 2 laptop or my desktop with a 27" monitor. The same pages will show the expected behavior when viewed in MS Edge.

I tried the following:

  • Restarted FF with all the add-ons disabled
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Removed the entire custom CSS from the site
  • Tried different themes

Nothing made any difference. I have been a Firefox user for a long time and do not want to switch. I also want the visitors using Firefox be able to have the same experience. Any suggestion to fix this problem will be much appreciated. Or a repaired version of Firefox release will be most welcome.

Thank you.
