One aspect of Firefox I value is the ability to customize headers and footers on printed webpages. This ability is important for my work.

I customized the headers and footers in the about:config interface according to advice posted [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1323433|here].

Recently, these settings don't take effect when I print webpages to pdf. I've triple checked that the settings are correct, but every time I print, the header and footer remain in the Firefox default configuration. Inexplicably, my preferred settings do take effect if I set the destination to "Fax." All other destinations don't work.

Is there any way to make these settings work again? Sadly, this might be a dealbreaker for me if not.

Random videos will not load following 100.0.2 install.

These symptoms started @ May 21. (See attached file "Recently installed")

This problem is 100% reproducible at: https://www.reddit.com/r/CatastrophicFailure/

Lenovo Thinkpad x140e Windows 7 (all updates installed) Mozilla 100.2.8174

Scrolling down the Reddit page, videos will auto-play when exposed, and stop when scrolled past.

A video not loading/playing will occur on different posts/videos, but will ALWAYS occur. Once this occurs some previously exposed / played videos, when scrolling up, will play when exposed again, and some will not.

This will also randomly occur on Youtube (also observed on Twitter a few times) when multiple tabs are open. Sometimes closing other open tabs corrects the problem. Other times closing Firefox and relaunching is required and is 100% effective.

I have additional diag data / Inspector log files and page source if needed.

Thank you in advance for your help and consideration. - LudditePro

The last bunch of updates FF has only gotten worse. There are so many websites I use to be able to access and now they only function partially or lad weirdly that I am being forced to another browser. So sad. Why do they mess with something that worked?

Up until the latest updates a week or two ago, UPS tracking worked fine. However, with version 100.x, UPS stopped working. All is get is the error message, "We are unable to complete your tracking request at this time. Please try again later.". I tried other older tracking numbers that I know are good, and the same error. However, UPS tracking using Chrome or Explorer/Edge works fine.

I could blame UPS, but both Chrome and Explorer/Edge does work.

Apparently, Firefox is sending a (buggy) request that UPS doesn't like.

Thanks, Bill

A couple users at our site intermittently receive a SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT error when navigating to Google in Firefox. This happens in Version 99.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 computers. When the issue occurs, users can navigate to other websites without issues. Navigating to Google in a different browser works no problem. Restarting the browser will resolve the issue. Clearing cookies and site data has no effect. Users can also refresh the page after some time and the issue will go away.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

I noticed in my wife's identity that "share" from the top file menu does NOT bring up the options for (Mac 11.6.5) to send an email or message, etc. I know it works from my identity w. same computer/settings. It used to work all the time on her identity, (and does so w.o issue using her Safari), but I don't recall an update.

   It also is obnoxious as all the 'share' brings up is the stock Mac "extensions' options, of which mail, messages are grey scaled out (as is iCloud), with no padlock or way to make them clickable/check or uncheck!   I have run safe mode, disabled extensions from the top bar, but have no idea how to make the "share" share!!!  It does work if we just highlight the page address and post it into macmail (14.0).  These permission things have no clear way to reset them for Firefox...i.e my calling up Mac support would probably be useless.

I searched extensively for this and could only find answers regarding bookmarks, not add-on icons. Of course I could still be missing it...

I am upgrading from Firefox Developer 86 to 101.

The spacing between add-on icons has been increased in Firefox 101, making the URL bar shorter:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-26-17-03-36-e06f37.png

Does anyone know of a userChrome.css script that I can use to decrease the add-on icon spacing in Firefox 101, to make it more like Firefox 86?

Hi, I use the Outlook web interface on firefox. I keep running into a strange bug. I'll start typing an e-mail message, and all of a sudden, my keystrokes are interpreted as commands instead of text. For instance, I'll type a word with an "n" in it, like "and", and somehow after I type the "a", the interface starts grabbing keystrokes away from the text field, so when I hit "n", it creates a new message, and the "d" ends up going into the text field of this new message. It's very frustrating, because I can't type more than a couple of sentences before the message and interface get screwed up. I've seen this misbehavior for a while, through several updates of firefox. No other web app behaves this way.

There is a very descriptive thread of the problem: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/working-with-outlook-web-interface-on-firefox/4212cac3-4be3-4295-b325-369ea3d46f2a?page=1

This has been happening to me for many months and through many browser updates. I/ going to have to get rid of firefox soon

I never want to see this content again and am considering switching browsers.

I don't want to see or think about ads, i don't want to know what getpocket is. I don't want chefs plate and their columbiahouse 2.0 bullshit product. It is absolute trash.

I do not want to see these things. Ever. Again.

If there is no way to remove these things from my browser its time to go back to chrome.

Thanks.
