Recently I've noticed that I am unable to print from Firefox. It doesn't matter if I print to a PDF or a real printer: I get the same error every time: "Print Preview Error, An error occurred while printing." If I do attempt to print to a PDF, the result is a malformed file that throws a sharing violation if I attempt to view it before closing Firefox.

I have tried all the various reset printer config settings on the help page Mozilla printer help , and even tried reinstalling FF. Everything else is OK.

Suggestions are welcome.

Firefox autoupdate and Firefox sync is disabled in computer. We are using Altiris patch management to update Firefox version. The source is msi file. Computer might has Firefox in difference install locations.

Computer has Firefox 85.0.2 64bit installed to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox However, Altiris patch management install Firefox 86.0 64bit to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

Now computer have 2 versions of Firefox 64bit.

parameter INSTALLDIR=path is not possible because computer might has Firefox in difference install locations.

Is it possible to update using msi replace current install directory instead of new install directory ?

My firefox browser was running slow, kicked to firefox refresh and when it came back all my saved Onetab bookmarks were gone, including the ones I saved before doing the refresh. Tried integrating the "old firefox data" folder back into the browser info, which seemed to be the way to go based on previous forum answers. That said the fix is unclear and doesn't seem to be working based on previously listed answers. Also, I'm on a Mac (Big Sur 11.2 - just updated OS), the other answers were Windows.. Need some help here please, cause it's kinda insane to have saved all the tabs then firefox just deletes them! Thanks!

How do I get rid of yahoo as the search engine? I did an update a few weeks ago and now Yahoo is the search engine. Prior to this I was using Google. The difference if Google is like chatting with an intelligent college graduate and Yahoo is like dealing with a 4-year old.

I am ready to switch from Firefox to Chrome if this is cannot be resolved.

I installed Lorex security cameras recently. I can access the DVR support box from Firefox and do admin stuff, but I can see no images from the cameras. Instead of images I get the message:

  Your browser does not support this function!

This appears in the sub-window that the current image should appear in. I have installed ffmpeg and gstreamer (libav, ugly and unrar) - all to no avail. I am running Fedora 33 currently patched fully (yesterday).

I find it hard to believe that these images cannot be seen in Firefox. What am I doing wrong????

Dear community, I forgot my password for my firefox account. To sync my new laptop I need it... So I found the article, which says, I can create a recovery key and use it to keep all my settings after I changed my password. But to create a recovery key, the system asks me to fill in my old password. So I can not create a recovery key. Maybe I make a mistake somewhere on the way... Is there anybody, who can help me? Thank you very much! Petra

Hi

Very annoying, cleaning all my bookmarks on my main computer, next morning I got a clutter of all bookmarks. Copy of bookmarks as well of folders.

Only way to solve it is to make new sync ID, or?

How do I save the same bookmark in multiple folders? (Sometimes it's hard to remember what folder I put a bookmark in: LOTS of folders & some bookmarks are ambiguous/could go in more than one folder; so much easier to find quickly if I had that option.)

I am located in an area wherre mobiles cannot be used because there is no signal. I have been trying to send sync to a USB memory stick but Firefox will not allow me to do this. Firefox insists that sync can only be sent to mobile devices. I am using Firefox on a desktop with Windows 10.

Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

To Mozilla Management_Please stop the constant updates>Why do we have to update constantly? ie: SteveKessler SteveKessler 11/20/14, 3:27 PM

We run a very nice internet business and 5 computers keep it running strong however we are continuing to update almost weekly. It has become a hassle to use Firefox. When we first started using Firefox years ago we might get an update 2 times a year now it appears to be 2 times a month. Please let us know why and if there is something we can do to change this. Updating and make unnecessary changes is very costly to our business and if it continues we may have to change browsers. We love Firefox but the updates must stop be so frequent. We do not have the time to keep updating nor do we want any computer updating without someone watching it. We do not want automated updates. On update was the worst when you made all the unnecessary changes. It took me all day to all 5 computers to look alike so everyone could use them no matter where they work. Please consider yourself a top browser and not a fly by night. This is a professional company so please act like it, walk like and turn this around. I am wondering if someone from Microsoft has started to help you?

SteveKessler SteveKessler Question owner 11/20/14, 4:22 PM

Two different answers to one question. I am asking why does Firefox constantly make updates? Why not leave everything alone? I understand if it is necessary but about 95% of the changes are b/c someone thinks they are helping. It is broken so please stop updating. If there needs to be an update due to hacker, i.e. then okay but all these other updates is not making it any better. People think if we make this change it will help others when all it does is make us keep updating and we do not use the new idea. We just want a fast browser without the gimmicks. Please consider that you already had a great browser and leave it alone.

SteveKessler SteveKessler Question owner 11/20/14, 6:56 PM

We're not interested in making changes when nothing is broken. You had Notice the word HAD the best browser on the internet! Now it is another browser competition for what? Just leave it alone. It does not need unnecessary upgrades. Making changes to make changes is not improvement. Keep it up and you will run off everyone. I know more about this than you think. Worked 35 years in this industry and know more than most will ever learn. I know if you keep changing just to change it will break down and you will not get the people back. You are not justifying the means and customers are very finicky. You are very close to losing it all. Too many people trying to show they know something without counting the cost.

hello,

I use SAS University Edition to learn how to improve my SAS knowledge.

It's installed via a VM and once installed, you just have to type http://http://localhost:10080/ in the browser to open the SAS session. It worked for months, until new releases of Firefox. I disabled the HTTPS only mode on Firefox.

Now I get a Firefox error message "Cette adresse est interdite - Cette adresse utilise un port réseau inhabituel pour la navigation web. Par mesure de sécurité, Firefox a abandonné la requête." Forbidden address, due to unusual network port usage.

How can I log on my virtual machine? Where are the parameters that restrict the access to http sites and how can I manage them?

Thank you for your help, PY
