FF has been my default for decades primarily because of superior print options. I use Custom Print option to print out pages in larger front, but this no longer seems to work in 92.01. At say 115 custom I lose text to right and bottom of page (both in preview and print to PDF).

I Lost my FF session, (not sure what I did, but the menu toolbar shortcuts were gone & I cold not 'click' them back, so I figures I would just reboot FF.

Some dialog box popped up (I don't recall exactly what the box said, but offered me a choice to CANCEL or CONTINUE. I hit CONTINUE. FF Shut down, and when it reopened a couple of my FF windows were missing, but the toolbar shortcuts were restored.

So, I figured I would restart FF a 2nd time. Well, still missing a few windows. FF session still open.

I am looking at the session files, and trying to determine which session file do I copy, and to where, to try and get old session restored, if I can?

I tried loading the larger 58,175 KB file from 7/16/21, and it crashed the scrounger page.

I am loading a smaller in 56,853 KB file from 10/8/21 (today's date) into your SCROUNGER page, and it has been running for 10 minutes now.

I thought it might be simpler to just copy or rename the correct file (after backing them all up) into the file that will be used after I close, and restart my current FF session & just look and see what FF opens. I just don;t recall which file FF uses for each new startup. Is it recovery.jsonlz4? previous.jsonlz4? something else?

I've uploaded an image, of the screen capture, of a few of my most recently dated session files, in this folder:

I am having a problem where when I click on .package files to download them, I am always getting a pop-up box making me choose what to do with the file, and I am never given the option to 'always do this with this type of file' or anything. I went into settings hoping to make this change manually, but .package files were not in the list of content types I could set actions for - no matter what website I was downloading from. Additionally, during the same session, I downloaded a .zip file and DID have the option to check off downloading as a default action. I recently got a new computer and was expecting to have to reconfigure some things, but I can't figure out why I can't set a default for package files in particular. I download a lot of them as mods for the Sims, so this is very frustrating lol.

Why does firefox keep archiving my email replies when I haven't even selected archive? I'll be typing along then, all of the sudden, it just archives the message I'm working on and prompts me that it has been archived? Is there a combination of keys that is doing this? I type really fast and I noticed this only happens when I type fast. I want to disable this feature, it is driving me nuts.

Hi.

I attach a photo that illustrates the huge difference in the way colours are rendered by Firefox. On the left, an iPad Air 4th Gen (15.01) and on the right a MacBook Air M1 (11.6). One would question if it was the same image. If I flip to Safari on iPadOS, it renders ~the same colour as Firefox on my M1. If I then save the image to "Photos" from either Firefox on MacOS or iPadOS and Safari, I get exactly the same colour rendering for all the images saved.

So it looks like Firefox is getting it badly wrong on iPadOS (the same with iOS 15.01) when it presents its colours. It doesn't matter if I'm in Dark or Light mode. I'm using Verion 92

As a keen fan of Mozilla, I prefer using Firfox as my default browser, but if there are these colour issues I'm a bit wary of replacing Safari on my iPad!

Thanks Tom

I allow FF to save some passwords and some I do not want saved. The other day I was logging into a site where I do not want my password saved and FF filled in my user name and password. I didn't think I inadvertently saved it but it could happen. I checked the saved logins and it was there. I removed it. The next time I went to log in to that site FF again filled in my info. I went to the manage logins and it was not there, yet FF is still filling in the info. This is super annoying and inconvenient as I have multiple accounts for this site yet it wants to continue to use this one login. How do I get this issue fixed.

After update to ver 93, YouTube videos no longer play. The loading circle is going around but it never starts playing. Edge plays you tube videos fine. I cleared cache and cookies, refreshed Firefox, deleted and reentered Firefox in the Windows Defender Firewall, restarted the PC, opened Firefox in safe mode, cycled Autorun, changed playback resolution, no change. Any suggestions?

Firefox was working fine, printing for me, and then all of a sudden it stopped printing when I went to print from stamps.com. I've used that site many times and have never had a problem. I have refreshed it, and reloaded a fresh download of it. Other browsers work fine but not Firefox. I've looked at a lot of the "solutions" I could google but did not find one that worked. It's not just stamps.com, I can't print from any website.

I've run a virus scan no issues. (Malwarebytes) It is not a printer issue either, I have two printers connected, both work fine with other programs like Word. I'm at a loss, and will have to use Chrome (yuck) until I can get this resolved.

I see that it has sent "something" to the print spooler, but the spooler is just hung up. I can empty the spooler, but it takes quite a while.

Since the recent Firefox updates my YouTube is messed up. This issue started a few months ago. The thumbnail pictures on the right side of the video screen do not match the titles. The pictures and titles have nothing to do with each other. The "comments" section on a video are not available unless I take my cursor and strategically find the little sweet spot to allow me to start typing.Also my name appears on other viewers comments and others on my comments. If I go to "task manager, right click on "Task Manager" and click "restart" the problem goes away for one viewing then returns. If I open and sign in to Youtube in Chrome everything works fine, so I know it's not a YouTube settings issue. Please help, it's driving me crazy!!

Can't print from Firefox at all - Print Preview error or Stuck in Spooler - Windows 10 Pro x64

For some time I have been totally unable to print from Firefox. I have the newest version that I know of, 93.0, running under Windows 10 64-bit, fully updated. I can print from any other browser and from all installed programs that I've tested to date. I even totally uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled from scratch. No help. I installed Firefox Portable and I have the same problem there.

One of two things happen when I try to print (even when I just try to Save to PDF): 1) the print manager says "Spooling" but never finishes the job. I can't clear the queue while

   Firefox is running. When I exit Firefox, the job(s) clear out.

2) I get the error message:

               Print Preview Error
               An error occurred while printing.

I've tried to print using Print Using the System Dialog... choice. Same outcome. I've Google searched and have not found anything that helps. Reboots don't affect it. Again, I can print from virtually every other application including other browsers, no problems so it shouldn't be the Print Spooler service. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. It would be much appreciated. Thanks much! I will post the resolution when (hopefully not If) I have it.

I've got a Macbook pro and love using the swipe gestures for productivity but sometimes it can make certain websites (e.g. Google sheets) frustrating to use.

The issue is that the swipe right feature has 2 main functions on firefox:

1. Go backwards a page 2. Scroll left on the same page

It becomes an issue when I zoom into a slide/image/etc. and I just want to scroll left but it's interpreted as going back a page instead.

It would be ideal if there was a way to prevent the 'go back' (swipe right) feature for a second, thereby using the scroll function instead... this could be done by holding cmd and swiping right to disable the back page function. There is a similar app called Forky Slide Scrolling Stopper, which prevents the 2 finger scroll up/down from changing slides - it would be good to have something like this for the 2 finger scroll left/right.

My question is - is there an add on or app that allows this feature?
