Hello, I have been looking at my traffic and discovered that my firefox for some reason does multiple DNS queries for the same domain, usually 6 times or 3 times, why is that happening I have checked with chrome and it does only 1 request per domain name.

I have attached a wireshark dump, the response is there instantly in very few ms yet it keeps querying the same name again.

My version is 115.3.1esr (64-bit) I have checked in about:config with dns and couldnt find anything relevant.

So I have two different accounts for one website. However one of them I use very rarely, maybe once in 2-3 months the other one i use almost daily. Therefore I have saved both logins in Firefox and I can see them in my passwords.

The problem is that whenever I try to access the website, Firefox auto-fills the "second" account, the one i only use rarely. What this means is that instead of me being able to just press login i have to delete the username filled in by Firefox and select the other one. So what i would like to do is to maybe tell Mozilla that I want it to use the other account for auto-fill.

Where is the page setup option? Firefox used to be simple. Using the page setup feature, one could specify the contents and locations of the headers and footers. It is especially useful for showing the website and date of the webpage to be printed.

The page setup feature is not there. It is nowhere.

I am not going to use about:config to try to get the page setup feature.

PLEASE RESTORE THE "PAGE SETUP" FUNCTION.

Hello, I have problems with Firefox web browser probabely since last automatic update (last week). Problem is that when I write something into search field in Google or another searchh engines, letters that will appear are different than I wrote on keyboard. For example I wrote " firefox podpora" but letter shown are "ffrefix ridrira". It happens only in FF. In same time I opened Chrome browser or Opera browser and tried to write same letters and in these browsers are all shown OK.

I use last version of FF 115.3.1esr Antivirus and antimalware programs shows computer as free of malware, viruses ... Can you pls help me to solve this problem? Thank you.

Since some month Firefox cannot download correct .zip or .bz2 files. When open these files 7zip says that there is "data after payload". When do sha256sum on such a file it is not correct (of course not). Today it happens again with Apache http: first line is Firefox-downloaded file and second line the correct sha256 from Apache-website. 2bda6210b50ed89d852bfc8c00140deab29f43f63f0e4098a60e0a066e5fb7e1 httpd-2.4.58.tar.bz2 fa16d72a078210a54c47dd5bef2f8b9b8a01d94909a51453956b3ec6442ea4c5 *httpd-2.4.58.tar.bz2

It used to be possible to set the colour of a container to black, although I can't remember how I did it: I think it was somewhere reachable from the preferences page. Facebook container still sets its colour to black on installation, so the black colour is still there, but I can't set black colour for a container in the Manage Containers dropdown.

I'm running version 8.1.2 on 115.3.1esr (64-bit) for openSUSE Leap 15.5 (and it would be much easier if I could copy this information from the Help-<About page). </p>

When I'm working in Google Docs, the keyboard shortcut Shift + Command + 7 creates a numbered list. However, when I try to do this in Firefox, it overrides the Google Doc command and automatically opens the "Help" tab for the search engine. Is there a way to disable the "Help" tab's keyboard shortcut so that I can use shift + command + 7 to make numbered lists in Google Docs?

ClearQuest: Firefox file open has issues

Hello,

When trying to open files from ClearQuest in Firefox, the file format is not always correctly recognized: every time it is necessary to manually browse for the application (e.g. Word, Excel) to open the file. Moreover, when Outlook msg file is being opened, it fails with an error message: "The command line argument is not valid. Verify the switch you are using."

MS Edge works OK. But there are other sites that don't work well with Edge - I need a single browser for all Thales applications, and so far it's been Firefox. Every time to fix it should clear cash and set up new profile. It is working for awhile then again cause a problem. Please advise us ASAP. Thank you for your time.

I'm a Windows 7 user... (I don't care for Windows 10 or 11) FireFox Browsers needs to have a way to adjust the ToolBar & Mrnu Text Size.. Even a Small/Medium/Large would be something. The layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in the about:config does change the font size by magifing everything on the browser. That's not exceptable, because of the way it affects everything within the viewable field. I know that no one wants to do anything to assit a Windows 7 user. But since the newer versions of window are crap.. I still need some help in trying to figure out "How to change/affect" the Size of the Text if FirwFox's browser.. Without distorting everything else within the browser....... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..........

All of my 100+ open tabs suddenly disappeared from Firefox on Mac today (not sure if I pressed some button combination by mistake or what happened). When Firefox reopened, only one tab was opened which I closed/restarted Firefox couple of times. Unfortunately I don't see all these historical tabs in the History->Recently closed tabs (just the latest one after Firefox restart). Can I somewhere find and reopen all the tabs? I tried various options but no success.
