I've already found the solution, but wanted to share that Version 90 created a problem with Print Preview and Shrink to Fit. Uninstalling Version 90 and re-installing Version 89 fixed the problem. With Version 90 the Print Preview function (which I love) didn't work properly. When I try to Shrink to Fit any page, the first page shrinks, but the second page isn't pulled into the first page. Also, there's missing information on both pages. If there's another solution so I can use Version 90, please tell me. If not, and Mozilla is doing away with Print Preview (and Shrink to Fit), I'll have to do away with Mozilla Firefox. Sorry, but that's the main reason I use Firefox over Chrome. Perhaps I can find another browser to do what I want. I hope not though.

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Users have been complaining about update nags for several years, and when a solution is found via about:config, Mozilla typically puts a spanner in the works and deletes the relevant config items like 'app.update.silent', 'app.update.doorhanger... etc.

I just want to remove the popup, not the ability to update. I'll update when I'm good and ready, and I don't need a popup each and every day nagging me to do so.

If Mozilla must ape Chrome, then aping Chrome's non-nagging update policy would be a good move.

From the very start, for the last 25+ years, Right Click a link, and hit the letter W to open the link in a new window... Suddenly, with 88 Update, it is now the letter D. (while everything else in Windows is still W)

How do I get it back to [W] (Industry Standard is W)

Why did Mozilla change the letter to D?

I don't mind having to train myself to use D instead of W... I do mind that everything else still uses W, so I have to train myself to only use D in Firefox.

Hi,

in the latest version of Firefox (updated June 2021), the home page had the icons shrink in size considerably.

I'm visually impaired, and this change had made the home page unusable. It's just too hard to see!

Is there a setting to adjust the homepage icons back to their larger size? They used to be 2-3 times the size, and really useful. The boxes the pics are in are still the same, but the icons displayed are tiny now, at least to these tired old eyes.

Thank you in advance! Tony

We have an internal review screen in our company to review data using pdf.js and viewer.js that we customized with a few extra menu items. It has been working great for years. Now, Firefox updates to version 90.0 and it displays blank pages for pdf files. This did not happen in any version up to 89.0.2. It is happening on multiple computers. We can still load this screen in Chrome and Edge with no issue. On one affected computer, I uninstalled Firefox, downloaded and installed version 89.0.2 and it worked again. (I had to turn off automatic updates.)

Hey all.

I've been using firefox for as long as i can remember and it was pretty much always the same, things are in the same locations etc... at least they have been now for the past many years.

I have updates disabled, i have clicked no for the past few times, and today i open firefox and it had updated itself... and just for fun i'm going to repeat myself, i have updates disabled...

The new top tabs are bigger with smaller text now, the "play" and "mute" button that was on the right side is now on the left and you can only see it when you hover the mouse over the tab itself. All that so there can be written "playing" under the name of the tab now. Instead of the "speaker" icon that was to the right of the tab name. Not even 24 hours ago i had it like that. Utterly useless changes. Who comes up with these ideas? It's helping no one! Stop it :)

It's fine that you have to push updates for security reasons etc... But this user interface changing is seriously going to make me stop using firefox. Why can't you just make your updates but let my browser be and look the same as it has always been!?

This is so annoyingly pathetic. I hope you can do something to change this, or at least give us the old theme with smaller top bar, play/mute on the right side as it was before so it's easy to see and find what tab is playing without having the text of the tab become smaller.

This is why i have disabled updates! It's like opening a drawer that always has socks in it for years, and all of sudden there's spoons in that drawer. Why would you change the position of things? What's next, the close firefox at the bottom left corner? Just for fun to mix things up? ;)

So lame guys.

I keep the "Recommended by Pocket" section collapsed throughout most of the workday to prevent distractions when opening new tabs. Recently I've found the section can't be collapsed anymore. I know that I can disable Pocket on the homepage, but I don't want to do that. I still want it available for me to take breaks or when I'm finishing up with something. The collapse feature was ideal for me.

This may sound petty, but it's a real issue. I would rather stop using Pocket than let it distract me all day. I could write a bookmarklet to deal with it, but not everyone has that option.

Is there still any way to toggle this section? If not, why was this feature removed, and can this feature be brought back?

I downloaded an add-on (mountains hd). Now, when I click initial firefox icon (on my desktop) the error prompts Invalid URL. I can select the next tab on that screen, which brings up a Google browser. I deleted the add-on, I think, I can't find it anywhere on my computer. The error still happens, initial load cannot find the browser. Also, the add-on did not have the option of using Firefox as a default browser. There was a prompt that said this was a preferred add-on of Firefox. Maybe I just got duped out of the last four hours of my life.

I only wanted to replace the black or white firefox homescreen with a picture or color that doesn't give me a headache. The provided color-home-page and picture-replace options in firefox do not work, I still can't get rid of the black-or-white screen, grrrrrrrrrr.

I am a browser / add on moron? I have been a fan of opera for many years because i could group tabs (IE Family history, telecommunications, steam trains etc) Opera has a high overhead, is slow and i needed something better - A friend suggested Firefox - Its a winner.

So i have seen add ons that would allow me to group my tabs but have no idea how to install one or where i should go for help.?

Please point me in the right direction - Im happy to read information but hoped it would be a click and install

Thanks
