Hi, my Firefox is wrong window-size when using dual monitors and inflicts on the second monitor. Even when fullscreen netflix etc. on the other monitor. This makes it so that there is a small (a few pixels) bar along the bottom of the monitor whilst i have FF max expanded. I have the second monitor stretched and placed "a top" on the other monitor if that matters. Only FIrefox has this issue when max stretched.

Hello there,

since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

With best regards.

I have a HP office jet 6500 printer. It has been working fine from my Ubuntu Computer using Firefox . Since downloading the latest version of Firefox I cannot connect to the printer and there for cannot print or scan.

The printer is still working normally from a second computer using Windows10.

I have tried re installing the printer but that has made no difference.

I am wondering if the problem could be caused by the Firefox fire wall. Help please. Please note I don't even know enough to be dangerous so any help will need to be extremely basic. I know my name everything else will need to be explained step by step,

Thanks

At this point I don't know what to do. This is the second time that it has happened. First time I fixed it by deleting the places.sqlite file and letting it synch, this time nothing is fixing it. Restoring from backup just moves them out of folder after a few seconds, restoring from html file does the same.

Please help. I have thousands of bookmarks in hundreds of folders. It's impossible to manualy resort them!

Hi, I just moved from Chrome recently. I found that most of my shortcuts does not work when a text box is focus. For example, I have a plugin shortcut set to `shift` + `alt` + e. When focused on text box, typing this shortcut will literally type a back-tick "´". I've never see similar behavior in Chrome.

I'm wondering how can I disable this "overriding" behavior? (i.e. I want `shift` + `alt` + e activates the plugin behavior when I'm in input mode)

Thanks in advance!

I've noticed in the past 2-3 weeks when visiting some websites that have a bunch of image thumbnails that load up. It will load the outline of a image, but not load the actual image thumbnail at times until anywhere between 5 seconds to upwards to 20-30 seconds before they pop in. Other times I'll notice it seems like they just don't want to load regardless and I'll even try right clicking on a invisible thumbnail image and clicking "Reload image" for it not to work, sometimes it does.

I have tried nearly everything that I could think of to fix this, I don't know if it's a recent issue with windows 10 maybe? I don't think it's our internet causing the issue since everything else seems to load and stream just fine, these websites work just fine on other devices within our home and I swear it was working just fine on my computer a little over 2-3 weeks ago.

Below is a list of fixes I've tried to rule out.

Clear cookies/cache data, run firefox in safe mode, dev mode, etc.

Completely delete firefox and any old folders, reinstall 100% fresh without any previous data or addons/extensions. Still didn't fix it.

I've tried turning off many of the settings for firefox like hardware accel, smooth scrolling, etc. Nothing.

I then tried doing stuff outside of firefox to see if anything else would work. I have made sure my graphics driver is fully updated and that didn't do anything.

I've tried to see if the thumbnail images were doing the same thing in other browers like chrome and I thought at first that chrome was handling these websites just fine, but after testing it a bit. I noticed the same thing was happening with chrome too.

Since it's also affecting chrome I know it's pretty pointless to post and ask what I should do or what could be the problem here. But I don't know where else to turn and just checking if anyone has had this problem before.

The attached image is a example for one of the websites I'm having this issue with, but like I said. It's loading these websites just fine on other devices from the looks of it.

Hello, thanks for taking time to read this. I tried downloading a website, a public youtube playlist in fact, using the right click - "save page as" command, but when I then click the downloaded page, it loads in firefox for a moment, then switches to a different (private) playlist on youtube. What? It's offline, right? And it aborts loading the saved website and instead loads another site?

I am no longer able to access the homepage of hollywoodreporter.com. As soon as I try it, a pop-up window titled "Manage Your Privacy" asks me to "Accept All", "Reject All" or "Manage Settings". (See attachment.) When I click "Accept All", nothing happens. When I click "Manage Settings", the pop-up window just turns grey and I can't do anything but close the tab and start over. Clicking "Reject All" only produces a warning, but does not close the pop-up either. I have cleared the browser cache and the cookies. I am using the latest version of Firefox. Any suggestions how this problem might be resolved are welcome. I can still access the homepage using other browsers, but I would prefer to do it with Firefox...

I've been running the Firefox browser for several years. No real problems with it. Any prior issues were minor and easy to deal with. Two months ago, I downloaded the Avast VPN application, which I was happy with. (hang with me here, please.) But, a week ago, I started seeing this internet connection message, "unidentified network internet access" along with my internet connection notation. When I turn off the VPN all is well for while. I can open Firefox, even get into my AOL mail. But beyond that when I try to clink on a link or bookmark or type in a URL on Firefox, it never opens. Just sits there. I have tried every suggestion on mozilla help pages and Avast (that I understand) and still no fix. Wit's end here.

I also have the Edge browser and this does not happen with Edge; all work. So I'm thinking the issue has to be with Firefox. I'm thinking I should just delete Firefox browser from laptop and then load it back on my laptop. I'm not a techie and am not comfortable with that. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to quit Firefox. Thanks.

Hi all, I'm having an annoying problem. A couple weeks ago, I was having major computer problems that required me to completely delete and recreate my user profile. I apparently hadn't logged into Google Voice since then, but decided to try and call a friend from that number today. When I tried to call her though, she couldn't hear me. Subsequent testing revealed that the problem is that Firefox isn't using my computer's microphone as the input, but rather it's taking the input from Stereo Mix, despite the default input device on my computer being the microphone. How do I change this within Firefox? I also have a wireless headset that I use sometimes, but when I plug that in, none of the audio switches to it. If desired, is there a way to get Firefox to use this device for audio output?

Hello Firefox Community and suport team,

Hope you all and your families are safe in these tough times.

I'm using Firefox extended support release 78.12.0esr (https://www.screencast.com/t/DfQBOa0GcDG), everything is working fine unless I use any virtual machine inside that, numpad starts misbehaving.

Whenever I type any number using number keys given below function keys, it works fine. But when I type any number from numpad situated at right side of full keyboard, it starts misbehaving. It types an alphabet with every keys. Video screenshot of the issue: https://www.screencast.com/t/ovucf32Tpz1d

Can anyone please check and help me to get rid of this issue?

I am unable to find the menu option under "Web Developer Tools" -> "..." drop down menu as described at the below page.

https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/debugging/#debugging-popups

Also manually changing the "about:config" properties related to "devtools.popup.disable_autohide" and "ui.popup.disable_autohide" appear to have no effect at stopping html popups from being hidden when selecting the web developer tools window.

Is anyone else able to make this work?

I found the following curious commit which makes it sound like it may have been disabled on purpose, but I'm uncertain.
