Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

Have bee watching memory usage in Win Task Manager, Resource Monitor and can see ONE thread of Ffx ramped up to 3 MB.

Firefox updates no longer trusted, will need to do a RESTORE POINT from now on.

Please comment, and where did my first support question go?

This was working perfectly on my old PC, but recently I built a new one and logged into Firefox and it pulled down my extensions and what not..

What I am running into, is when I close Firefox and open it back up my tabs that were in containers do re-open but they are no longer in their respective container. I have to right click the tab and select "re-open in..." to get it back in the correct container.

I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled and it has the same result. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hello everyone,

does any of you know how to set the standard page for printing in the FireFox PDF print dialog?

Some of my colleagues very often (80-100x daily) only have to print the first page of a PDF file and it annoys them when they have to keep clicking in the input field to enter the page number manually.

I saw that this is possible with one device and some screenshots on the Internet.

Unfortunately, neither in the FireFox itself nor in the printer driver of the printer can I set a standard page.

Even if I insert the 1 manually and print it, no standard value is stored in the next document.

On the official Firefox help page, page 1 is also entered by default.

Here are a few screenshots so that you know exactly what I mean.

This is what it currently looks like:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-02-18-03-38-29-97bc59.png

it should look like that:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-02-18-03-38-34-a38985.png

Do you have any ideas?

on the screenshot in the official documentation the "1" is also filled.

Just a few days ago I was still using Firefox 84 where all fonts were displayed properly in the font select options.

After upgrading the browser to 85 (or 85.0.1/85.0.2 maybe), all fonts installed later in the system have disappeared from the selection list, and the selected option has become the default option.

Today, and before, about a year ago, I suddenly got a Firefox screen show up identifying itself as an annual survey. Confetti pouring down the screen.... The incentive was a *chance* to get a prize. So I proceeded cautiously and answered a few questions that seemed legit. Then, I won a prize... A Samsung Galaxy said to be valued at $1100 for $1. I was not on a page at https://easemastereight-15.life/.... Even more cautiously and suspicious moved forward using the click here, and it redirected to a different site, where of course they wanted a credit card to pay for the $1. At this point I bailed, especially because I was offered the same deal a year ago. What I want to do now is to alert Mozilla about this, and after a lot of searching, this form was the only way I could find. If anyone knows how to route this to the people who should investigate this, please do it. Meanwhile we should all remember that if it looks too good to be true, it almost certainly is.

Does Firefox 85 contain any breaking changes regarding the WebRTC implementation or are there known issues with WebRTC video connections in this version? I am experiencing problems with a web application that uses WebRTC in combination with a Windows UWP app (client implementation for Microsoft HoloLens). With Firefox Version 84 the solution worked without problems. Starting with Firefox 85 the WebRTC connection can still be established, but the video connection breaks after 15-20 seconds.

I use Firefox regularly with Google Meet and it worked fine but recently (a few weeks ago) it started hanging when I try to share my screen in a Google Meet session and, when I try to return to the session, Firefox simply crashes, freezes and gets irresponsive.

I am not sure, but I guess it started happening after last Firefox update.

I ran about:crashes and the crash seems not to be stored (my last crash happened in Feb/19/2021:

I recently bought a new mac mini. it is running os 11.12.1 and is the new mac M1 chip. I downloaded the latest version of firefox, 85.0.2 It seems to work great..... but after a few days i have noticed that when i first wake up the computer in the morning AND after i wake it up after it's gone to sleep during the day the browser doesn't work correctly. Trackpad won't scroll. Typing won't type. Clicking on a tab dosen't open the tab..... UNTIL i click on another window of the browser, then when i go back to the first window it has opened the tab i clicked on. Very odd. If i quit firefox and open it again it works. But this is not ideal.

Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone have a solution??

Thanks, Miranda

Hello,

Is there any way of customising the menus (such as context/right-click menus)so that they do not display any kind of icons?

For example the burger menu has icons for "Print" and other items.

This is inconsistent with my desktop environment (GNOME) and all of my other desktop apps (which follow the default GTK settings that disable such icons)

Another minor thing is underlining certain characters in those menus (for keyboard shortcuts, I think), for some of the items. This is another inconsistency which is also disabled system-wide by default in GNOME.

Is there some way of disabling these? Maybe an about:settings config that I didn't find yet?

I'm not looking for direct assistance, this is feedback. The feedback submission from within the browser is disabled by Mozilla.

When I have FF (85.0.2 x64, Win10) set to use a toolbar density of "Touch", this works for the toolbars themselves, but not the Bookmarks menu. See the attached screenshot. You can see that the toolbar elements are nicely spaced to make it easier for fingers and finger-simulating stilii, but the bookmarks menu is still densely packed.

The feedback is to have the toolbar spacing apply to the bookmarks menu too.
