Trying to download and print one of my tax documents. File type is PDF. Even in the print preview, the right margin is at least two inches, and it prints that way. I tried clicking "more" and adjusting the margin settings, but that doesn't help. I tried printing through Chrome and Edge and it prints fine. Any ideas how to get PDFs to print right on FF without having to switch over to another browser to print a document?

Profile: https://share.firefox.dev/490blHh

Subject says it all, but it seems to occur with any site, anytime I try to open more than three or four tabs (ctrl-clicking links on a forum, for example) my Firefox instance grinds to a halt and starts consuming most of my CPU (Ryzen 5 3600).

I've tried turning off Firefox's various protections. I tried troubleshooting (formerly "safe") mode, and the problem isn't as bad but is still present as far as I can tell. The only extension I can think that would be making it worse is Tree Style Tab, but I don't know enough about interpreting Firefox profiles to verify.

The only reason I consider this odd is because doing the same thing in Chrome doesn't have this issue on this same device. If I open many tabs quickly, Chrome itself is still responsive. Those newly opened tabs may take a while to load and become interactive, but it doesn't affect the rest of the application. I pay my ISP for gigabit DSL, and as far as I can tell that is roughly what I get. In my case, Firefox doesn't behave this way.

Hello Mozilla,

I hope this message finds you well. I had the pleasure of being part of the Mozilla team approximately three years ago, and I must say, I cherished every moment of it.

I am reaching out to you today with a pressing matter. My current company, Five9, recently submitted an extension that unfortunately got rejected. This extension is crucial for our business operations, and its rejection has put us in a challenging situation.

I understand that reviewing submissions is a meticulous process, but I wanted to inquire if there's any possibility of having our extension reevaluated. Your assistance in this matter would be immensely appreciated.

As a side note, during my time at Mozilla, I had the privilege of collaborating with the operations team, led by Sean Rich.

Thank you for considering our request. Looking forward to your response.

Best regards, Jorge M Spiropulo Five9 Architecture

I don't think "Tabs" is the right topic, but maybe it's the best of the choices since "Other" isn't an option.

I have an email with a link to a monthly newsletter, which should take me to February's issue. When I click on, or copy/paste, the link, I end up with the January issue. When I copy/paste in Chrome and Safari, I get the February issue. The newsletter people suggested clearing my cache/cookies in Firefox, but that didn't help. No matter how I try to navigate to the newsletter in Firefox, I get to January. I have tried everything I can think of, and still get the January issue in Firefox, while that same link gets me the February issue in Safari and Chrome.

I'm using Firefox 122.0.1, on a MacBook Pro (Sonoma 14.2.1).

I'd appreciate any ideas you might have!


/edit: moved thread from Firefox for iOS (for iPhone/iPad) to Firefox section as you have macOS.

I got a popup tab with a very dated UI about an urgent Firefox update involving a flash player. It told me to click allow installation or something like that I don't remember exactly. Once I clicked the allow button there was a popup and a green arrow pointing to the popup in the top right. I clicked it and it said to click "add" next. I realized this is probably a scam and did not add it. I'm assuming that add was referring to something about extensions or plugins but I checked those and there wasn't anything I already knew I had. I did a virus scan and it got nothing. The popup appeared alongside a Minecraft Skindex download. I did some research and learned it is malware and comes in many different forms. The add popup referenced something called auto ads off. Did I stop the malware by not clicking add and if not how do I remove it.

I've discovered it has something to do with Amazon.

I didn't know I had it until I just migrated to Windows 10 and a new firefox update occurred.

Even then, my only clue is a little orange "triangle" that shows up at the top line of the 'hamburger' menu at the top right on the screen. When I clicked on it, I got a message saying "Silk Privacy Pass wants to update".

I went to my installed extensions/themes screen and there is nothing about a silk extension or add-on.

It also showed up when I looked in the startup configuration and it showed it was loading during startup there. I disabled it. But today I just got the orange triangle again an hour ago wanting me to let it update.

I want it gone!! Especially when it showed up on my system without my asking or knowingly agreeing to it.


FWIW, I also ran Agent Ransack (search utility) on the drives and "Silk" does not come up as a file name for an app, DLL or any other file.

When I click on a pdf file, Firefox opens and displays the file, rather than handing it off to Acrobat, which is my preference. I'm running Firefox 122.0.1 and Windows 11 Firefox seems to ignore the settings in General, Applications. (See attached image)

    If I set to Always Ask, Firefox displays the file without asking.
    If I set to Save File, Firefox does not save the file.  It displays pdf instead.
    If I set to Windows Default Application, Firefox displays the file.  
         (Note: Acrobat is set in Windows as my default app for pdfs.  If I find a pdf with Windows Explorer and open it there, Acrobat is launched and it displays the file.  IOW I've confirmed that Acrobat is set as my default app for pdfs)
    If I set to Acrobat, Firefox displays the file.

I see nothing in Firefox Settings showing an Add-in for pdfs Any ideas?

I'm getting locked out of a site I visit regularly. Their tech support sent me this reason:

‘Firefox browser (or some extension) is sending multiple requests to us with the browser User-agent "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)"' This can't be happening from the normal usage, so we automatically block them because they are not the requests from genuine Googlebot crawler.

The possible cause might be using some browser extension that makes the request with Googlebot user agent.
Please make sure to disable all extensions (and remove that you are no longer using) and let me know so we could check on our end if that stopped?"

How do I find what is doing this and how can I fix it?

I have used mozilla firefox for at least two decades as my main browser. However about a day ago I closed a window (ei. X'ed out) and all of my windows closed AND were unrecoverable via 'restore session'

This now happens all the time. I may have a couple windows open - I close one and they all close - not TABS - WINDOWS. As I am handling personal finances, academics and business, I cannot work like this. I cannot keep every window I open forever open so that I do not loose another. I am forced to use another browser until the problem is fixed.

I was also VERY disappointed to find that I could not just ask a question without signing in. This is absolutely ridiculous. Just help people who use your stuff. Why do I have to be a member to point out a problem or ask a question? I'll bet you are missing volumes of helpful feedback because folks are tired of having to announce themselves before pointing out a glitch and just move on as I almost did. That in turn leaves dedicated users dealing with a glitch for longer.

I am using the latest Windows 10 on a modern machine.

Upon the clean, newly downloaded from Mozilla copy of Firefox for Mac, I will get a pop-up window asking, "Open existing Firefox application?." What is obviously spurious about this window is that there is only one copy of Firefox installed.

I have used the recommendation by someone on the Interwebs telling me to go to the Terminal App and execute:

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -bin -P

..after which a small applet window (called "Firefox - Choose User Profiles") pops up where I see the installed profiles for Firefox. I was told to delete all but one of the profiles, check the "Use the selected profile without asking at startup Check box, and then hit the "Start Firefox" button. Firefox then opens up.

If I quit Firefox and fire it back up again, I again see the little, "Open existing Firefox Application?" window. This goes on forever.

I have also given Firefox Accessibility, Full Disk Access, and Screen Recording rights, but to no avail.

Any ideas?
