Over the last few weeks Firefox is not printing statements correctly from my online bank. Other browsers e.g. Safari, Microsoft Edge are working fine. I have Firefox on a MacBookPro (El Capitan) and a PC (Windows 10) and both have exactly the same problem. The image is far too large for the page and much text is lost. Switching to landscape doesn't help. It appears that something has changed in Firefox recently which is causing this. Thanks

I have my preferences to set to keep my logged and save cookies, but lately I have been getting logged out of websites I use regularly such as Reddit, GMail, Yahoo. History is set to clear when I close my browser because I don't need to be reminded that I searched for random words so I could spell them correctly.

This morning for example, I signed into Reddit because I had gotten signed out since last night. Did my reading. Closed my browser. Came back. Opened Reddit again and was signed out. It doesn't happen every time I close my browser. I may stay signed in for a few days with no issue or, like this morning, I don't stay signed in for very long. I even got a message that I wasn't signed in on tab I opened from another tab.

Is this a bug? Some undocumented feature?

It's not all bad though since it keeps me from constantly checking FB which I use 2FA for and hate going through.

I run Firefox 52.9.0 32bit ESR as main browser - for reasons to do with our server I also run under a separate profile Firefox 68.12.0 ESR 32 bit for testing

When using 52.9.0 whenever I change a bookmark, it ALSO updates the file in the V68 profile folder! I have no idea why as both profiles should be separate. The time stamps are the same.

I need to keep the V68 profile completely isolated from the V52 so need to try and stop this unusual updating!

Both profiles are NOT local and located in F:drive under different folders. Both versions are started as:- "I:\Firefox New\firefox.exe" -P "Firefox New" and "I:\Firefox\firefox.exe" -P "Firefox Old" and the profiles.ini file points correctly

Any suggestions please - and no I can not update them as needed for specific purposes!

Hello,

I've seen this thread to customize some settings in Firefox but I don't think I've found what I need. So here's my issue : Some people in my company use a software which download JNLP file. I've found this support topic which solve my problem (I've tested with one user). But now, I'd like to spread the workaround via a GPO. I've downloaded the policy template v2.1 ('cause Firefox 79 is installed) but I can't figure out how I force the value to "True" for the browser.download.skipConfirmLaunchExecutable preference in the about:config panel. Is it supported or not yet ? Could anyone lend a hand please ? Thanks in advance.

This may be a duplicate, but I really could not find any answer that would work. As the title says, I've been trying to move Firefox tabs from the top to the bottom of the entire window. With this I mean I'd like to move only the tab titles and nothing else (no address bar, ...), and not to move it just below the bookmarks bar. I've been trying and modifying several userChrome.css files that were told to do so (in older versions), but the only thing I could obtain was to move the tab titles below the bookmarks bar, just above the web page. I'm on Arch Linux, using dwm as Window Manager. Is there any way, any css property that could help me? Thanks in advance.

Hello;

Is the sync firefox account to be used only on 2 computers, e.g. part at work, part at home? and not e.g. to recover data after reconfiguring / setting up a new computer?

I forgot my computer to work, I had to reset my password because I haven't typed it in a long time; I don't have the passwords, I don't have any installed plugins, I don't have any browsing history;

if he knew I wouldn't be able to access to my data, I wouldn't have set up this account, because it gave me the illusion that in such a situation I would be able to continue working where I finished

Did I misjudge the features of this account? And after starting the computer on which I work every day I will have access to passwords or will they be erased there as well? If they are to be erased - is it better to make a copy of all passwords, history, etc. before connecting the computer to the network ?

Kind regards Norbert

Earlier, you could quickly close all tabs that I was done using by keyboard shortcuts 'Right Click' on Tab > 'i' > Enter This was a quick and very often used shortcut to close tabs to the right. Likewise for the 'Close other tabs' option.

But it's now moved inside a 'Close Multiple Tabs' menu. And this menu does not have a unique keyboard shortcut. It has M, which is also the shortcut for mute tab. So now when one needs to close tabs, it becomes 'Right Click' on Tab > 'm' > 'm' > Enter > Enter

Could this be changed so that either the keyboard shortcut for Close Multiple Tabs is not 'm', or that the close tabs options appear in the main menu on right click?

It was about last week (14-Sep-2020) that Google started rolling out the feature to blur the background in the webcam's image. Only the person is not blurred.

This feature is appearing on Chrome, but not on Firefox.

Is this something that Firefox has the control over to turn on? Or it this outside of Firefox's controlled and controlled by Google?

on a Google meeting, that is, a meeting created in Google Calendar that generates those automated Google meeting URLs:

when I share my screen, I also want my mouse cursor to be shared, because it's very useful to use it as a laser pointer so the audience in the meeting knows which part of the screen they should be looking at.

I couldn't find any feature at all within Firefox or inside the Google meeting settings [as the meeting is happening] to turn on my mouse cursor sharing.

On Chrome the mouse cursor is shared by default when someone shares their screen, which is desired behaviour.

It's a local problem with Firefox because other co-workers who have identical computers to mine use Chrome and I always see their mouse cursor when they share their screens. I'm on Windows 10.

Hallo, I often use the 'Restore previous session'-button as I wasn't able to finish my work / reading all the stuff of the day. Some tabs I kept reopening with that function over weeks.

Unfortunately, my son opened up Firefox for searching some school info and closed it afterwards. So I cannot restore 'my' session and would have to search the history of weeks to find one quite important article. Is there a possibility of finding somewhere a sort of cache of the so-called 'pre-previous session'??? It'd quite important to me, thank you in advance for a short answer!

Hello,

I installed 2 different versions of Firefox (80.0.1 and 77.01) and created 3 different profiles in each installation

The issue is FF stores all the different profiles data in single "profiles.ini" file (which is created by first installation of firefox) whereas as per Firefox documentation It should have created 2 different profiles.ini for 2 different version of firefox which is actually good for privacy reason.

OS is: Win 10 (64bit)

Please let me know how to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance!

Firefox has begun changing my address when I enter it in an online form on a website. Instead of saving my address as entered, it alters it to something else. For example, if I enter my address as "1234 Camino Las Roblas" it changes it to "1234 The Roblas Road". I'm not having the same issue with other browsers. Also, when I check the address as entered by Firefox with another browser, the other browser shows that it's reading correctly. So it appears that Firefox may be entering my address correctly but just not displaying a correct readout. I'm wondering if it's automatically translating the "Camino Las" part of my address from Spanish to English and substituting "The _____ Road"? Would like to know if anyone else has experienced this and how to correct. Thanks much.

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...
