Ever since you last changed Preview, it takes FOREVER for the darn page to load (be seen in Preview) and then FOREVER more to print. Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??

I have a rather weird problem with firefox. I need to open websites twice to get them to work. To try and explain what I mean here is a how i currently need to use the browser

Open tab,

type in web address/search,
hit enter

tab is stuck infinitely loading ( i cant refresh, I cant type a different adress, that tab is just stuck loading) open a second tab

type in the exact same address/search
hit enter and for some reason it now loads instantly

And it isnt just new tabs its the same story to load any and all webpages say I am on a page of google search results click a link stuck infinitely loading open new tab repeat the same search click the same link, for some reason now loads instantly

Also websites that require the dumbest thing in history, captchas, they are simply unusable, doesnt matter if I use the pictures or the audio, even when I get it right it just reloads the pointless captcha box. Why a captcha is necessary sometimes just to load google.com makes less than zero sense, even if I was a bot what possible harm could I do by loading a search bar? but I digress

I am on the latest version and I do have some addons installed:

privacy badger, dark reader, ublock origin, tree style tabs, privacy settings, ghostery,dontaccept webp


but even starting firefox with add ons disabled the problem is still there.


Anyone got any ideas for this? thanks

No suggested fix works. Reinstalling does not help, toggling DRM application does not help. It was obviously the update (at least for users on 78.10.0esr with OS X 10.9.5) that did it. Is there some way to get this registered as a bug?

How do I remove the mixed content protection permanently and will it remove the banner that appears? I am sick of the banner that pops up at times that affects the browsing ability which is entirely annoying and how do I remove the shield and padlock from my fire fox entirely. I hate having to disable those as they interfere with the operation of my firefox and website that I have because not all the content on my website fails to load if the mixed content is disabiled. I'm tired of having this on my browser. I have to enable all my site features everytime I reload my browser. This is totally in the way.

I'm not sure what is causing this, but for a while now I have been having problems when typing and this happens quite a bit now. First I'm not very proficient at typing, I use the hunt and peck method, I have to look at the keyboard to type. But it seems like when I hit certain keys like: W, E, R, T, Y or in that area of keys, things happen I do not want. For one, I had to type this in my email and copy and paste here, because the tab that this was open in, kept reloading and I would lose everything I typed. Even in the email, several times when I hit the E R keys a window would pop up asking if I wanted to leave the page. Or what I was typing would show up in the search block at the top of the email screen. When I'm typing out a comment in YouTube, the tab will reload and I lose everything. Sometimes in my gmail account, typing an email to someone, or in another site like YouTube or a companies website typing out a question or answering one, if the tab doesn't reload, a Bing search popup window opens.I thought it might be my keyboard as it was quite old, but I just replaced it with a new one and the problem has gotten worse. I've run a virus scan and every other scan on Avast that I have and there is nothing and Avast is current. I have the Windows 10 Hotkeys turned off. This is getting really annoying. I do not know if it is a Windows problem or a Firefox problem or a computer problem. So far no one has been able to give me an answer.Are there Shortcut Keys in Firefox, more in Windows 10 other than the hot keys, or is there some other program I need to disable?Please Get back with me on this.Robert

OK, sorry if I dont know all the technical jargon but here are a couple issues I have been having. Currently using FF88.0 on Windows 10 Home edition.

A few updates ago I noticed when I go to print a page from the internet (specifically eBay Order Details) it no longer prints the default auction picture as it appears on the screen but enlarges it up to the original download size. This make the shrink to fit option no longer work properly. So in order to get all of the information I need on one page of print I have to constantly change the size from 40-60% to make it work. Frustrating and time wasting.

Second issue: This one just started with the last update. I use a Rollo label printer and I had everything set up where it worked just fine. After the last update it prints half labels and I cant get it to adjust back properly. Huge issue and time waster.

On average I feel like this slows me down 15-30 minutes a day total.

For some reason, somehow, the console language changed to Croatian. I use both Windows and Firefox exclusively in English, but I use Croatian keyboard layout. I've never set Croatian as anything, anywhere. Please help me because I'm going mad. I really don't want to switch to Chrome... This is a big problem for me since I never use Croatian on my PCs and am lost while trying to debug my web apps.

I am dealing with a government website. All of the government forms are available as PDFs on this website. However if I try to download a form the site looks at the browser description and does not see Adobe Acrobat installed on my system, so it returns a text document telling me to install Adobe Acrobat release 8 or higher. I cannot install Adobe Acrobat because Adobe does not support Linux. I don't need to install Adobe because Firefox, Chrome, and every other browser on the market has builtin support for PDF. How do I customize Firefox to LIE to the website and say that Adobe Acrobat is installed?

Hello there. I was curious if there was a way to lock individual tabs in my firefox browser. If there as an extension I am willing to do that as well. For example. I would like to lock individual tabs behind a password if my family were to come in my room you would not be able to access a certain tab without a password. I have discovered the "Primary Password" setting but I am looking to lock a tab not my login passwords. Thank you for the help!
