On this site: https://www.orange.pl/twojekonto/zaloguj I can't force firefox to remember username (no problem with remembering password on next step). In older Firefox without WebEx there was addon which allowed to manipulate forms to prepare proper autocompletion data. This addon is not supported with WebEx anymore due to lack of proper functions. Instead Firefox Dev Team claims that mechanism built in current Firefox is enough for such tasks and mentioned addons are not needed. Seems it is wrong thinking.

I tried different approaches to save username for mentioned site but without success.

Hi,

I'm using the latest Nightly on Windows 10. This Nightly was manually installed in a customized folder, so it works like a portable Nightly (you can copy/paste it to another folder and it'll work). In fact, for test purposes I have several Nightlys manually installed in different customized folder, all working at the same time. No Nightly standard installation on this computer, so no Nightly installed at C:\Program Files, nor C:\Program Files (x86), nor C:\Users.

Please, I'm looking for a way where the update process is done silently, at least 3 times per day. By update process I mean: Check, Download, Apply/install updates and Restart (if needed)... silently and automatically (no human intervention)... at least 3 times per day. I need to be sure that every time a Nightly is launched ALWAYS is already automatically updated.

I googled the subject and I found very old articles, so I preferred to ignore them. However, it seems that recently Nightly started to use a new Mozilla Maintenance Service + Firefox Background Updates. But if I well understood, it only works if Nightly is closed/not in use, which is useless for my needs described above.

A very friendly developer helped me, and he wrote a java script which works perfectly for my needs. But I wonder if I can avoid external java scripts. I wonder if I can achieve same results just by using Nightly own resources. I wonder if I can use the new Mozilla Maintenance Service with a specific Windows task (or a batch file etc).

Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I have a local HTML file which executes some js functions to draw svg figure. The browser rendered the HTML well, and then I extracted the svg conent from console using console.log(document.getElementsByTagName('svg')[0].outerHTML) and save as "t.svg". I found there was a slight difference between figure in "t.svg" and the orignal HMTL rendered by browser. But when I redid these in chrome and ms edge, the "t.svg" and the HTML were exactly same.

It is a followup of a previous question and your suggestions did not work. May be I did not explained myself. The issue is that everytime I launch Firefox a "google page" pops up asking me either to accept or to personalize the use of cookies and whatever I choose it is not “memorized” so that the following time I launch firefox it asks again the same question. (I have google as my default search engine and I have a google account). Thanks! Giulio

For years my firefox browser has had msn as my homepage and it has never changed in how it looks and is layed out. Today it has changed and it is terrible. Using MS Edge it is still the same as always so Firefox must have somehow changed how msn homepage looks. I want the msn homepage on firefox that I am used to and like....NOT the one from today that changed. Please tell me how to get the msn homepage I want back on Firefox. Would it maybe be to install a former version such as v92 of firefox so the msn homepage is how I am used to? Please advise and thanks much.

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

All PCs are Windows 10 (64) Home or Pro

After FireFox updated to ver 93.0 (64 bit) the CenturyLink Webmail page fails to load properly (all I get is a blank screen). I know this is because of version 93.0 because the last PC I checked it on (My Windows 10 (64) laptop) still had FireFox 92.0.xx loaded and the webpage loaded fine, then the browser updated and the webmail page failed to load properly. The CenturyLink Webmail Page loads fine on Google Chrome and on Microsoft Edge.

Troubleshooting: In addition to the usual clearing browser data I even tried resetting FireFox on one of my PCs. It didn't help.

Centurylink tech support says there is nothing wrong with their Webmail and to use another browser.

I've attached a screen capture of what I see.

also this happens when using firefox's built in pdf viewer.

Print has been broken since the display interface changed recently.

I have used FF to print placards composed using html, generally contained in tables. This almost always requires "scaling" the page to fit the available space for the printed result.

With the new interface, when I change the scale from 100% (in this case to 120%) blocks of text disappear both on the preview screen and in the resulting printout.

When I do the same with the same html file using Chrome, the page and the resulting printout scale correctly.

Would like to be able to continue to do this using FF. Hope you can address this.

I assume that you know that the FF "submit feedback" is not usable... there is no way to login other than social media, and no apparent way to "submit feedback" by mere mortals.
