Firefox has been good to me and i love it. Been using it as my primary web dev browser but it has increasingly been brought to my attention the need for better CSS Print media implementations. I would love to know how I can set the page to be printed in landscape orientation via CSS. Also is it possible to set page sizes via CSS?

I don'tr know what this would fall under. So I chose other

I cannot use this browser anymore. At first I thought it was web root, because on the options page it said, "this browser is run by this organiztion" or some such crap. and if I click on it, it said webroot.

I CONTROL THIS, I AM THE ORGANIZATION. SO I GOT RID OF WEBROOT.

Once again, when i made FIREFOX THE DEFAULT, IT CHANGES ,MY OTHER DEFAULTS. THIS IS A NIGHTMARE, I DON'T KNOW OF ANYONE WHO WOULD USE A BROWSER THAT DOES THAT. iT CHANGES MY PDF FILES INTO LITTLE ICONS OF FIREFOX AND IT DOESN'T GO TO MY EMAIL WHEN I CLICK AN EMAIL LINK IT GOES TO A BOX. I NEVER SET A THING TO DO THAT. I LOOKED ALL OVER THE SETTINGS, AND I CAN'T TELL WHAT IN THE WORLD WOULD CAUSE IT TO DO THAT. I JUST END UP HAVING TO USE CHROME, WHICH IS LIKE TELLING THE WORLD WHAT YOU ARE DOING; SHAME ON YOU FIREFOX, THIS IS A SCREWY AND VERY BAD THING.

The latest update to Firefox broke an Add-on that I rely on.  I have spoken to the app developer and they are working on the problem but it is as yet unresolved.  In the meantime I downloaded the last version of Firefox (vs. 78.0.2) to use while, hopefully, a fix is found. When I installed this there was a notification suggesting that using an older version of Firefox could corrupt my Firefox data and recommending I create a new profile, which I granted. However the new profile is useless without all my tabs and other data. What is the best way to restore my default profile? Can I just delete the new one?

Firefox Add-On Identification When Hovering

I have Firefox 79 on Windows 8.1 but even before the latest FF update I have been having trouble with the mouse pointer identifying the Firefox Add-Ons and Extensions when pointing to them or placing it over them. It used to work perfectly but now it doesn't. It used to show each of their names. Not now and it makes things much harder. All it does is darken the Add-On into a square but that's all. On other web browsers it does show their name when hovering over an Add-On with the mouse pointer. Does anyone know what has caused this and how I can bring back that function so that I can see what each Add-On's name is when I hover over it? Thank you!

FF 79 using insane amount of memory for some websites

Was on https://www.trueachievements.com/ and my memory usage was over 11GB and it kept going up!

11 GB of memory to only have 2 tabs open is insane! The other tab was youtube playing a 720p video. I visited this site before with no issues. Does 79 have a memory leak or something?

Checked task manager once FF was having trouble responding and the video was getting choppy. I have 9900k with 32GB ram so i was like, hmmm. Shouldnt have any issues for a 720p video. lol

Once i closed the tab it went back to normal. Does anyone else have issues with this site or FF using high amount of memory?

In recent months Firefox has updated several times on my laptop. The first time (6 months or so ago) I lost all my bookmarks and now can't bookmark anything. Annoying, but I just have to search for things. The most recent update (this past week) has disabled my search engine. I can't use my search bar at all at the top. When I try to designate what search engine I want, it won't allow anything. Again, I have to type in a search engine address directly, then use that search engine when I get on the page.

I also can't right click on a link and open another tab or page.

At this rate, I'm ready to simply delete Firefox and find a different browser to use.

I understand wanting to update Firefox with new bells and whistles...but it really needs to work across all platforms.

Help me out here....Jeff Pile

windows 10 64bit, latest firefox install. i see an issue with my keyboard typing the wrong characters in firefox, it seems to randomly replace the character i press on the keyboard with a different one. I can be typing something into a webpage, either ebay or facebook, or even an address on any ecomerce site, and i get ridiculous spelling issues. E.g i type "firefox issue" into this page, and i get "firefix issue" if i goto the the "O" btton on the keyboard, and hold it down, i get "iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiooiiiiiiii" or some other random pattern. I don't have any emoji extensions installed, and have zone alarm installed, and its up to date too. Any ideas??
