With the new v85 of Firefox... for Microsoft Print to PDF...

the defaults for print headers & footers has changed and is no longer available to edit or even view. It seems as though my settings remain in place for other printing options like my physical printer but even there the options are not editable or viewable.

There used to be a "page setup" option but I have not be able to find this anywhere anymore.

I'm assuming that it has to do with the bug fix for pdf printing but doesn't seem that it should be an intended outcome of the fix.

Any work arounds anyone knows about or has found?

Is there a way that I can change this setting in config rather than downloading an add-on? This changed with the most recent Firefox update for me (I'm currently on 85.0.1. for Ubuntu). Currently, the default save behavior is for bookmarks to save to the most recent folder you've picked. My preferred behavior would be for all bookmarks to save to "Other bookmarks" until I can file them away later.

I have a few add-ons installed in Firefox (85.0.1, 64-bit, under Windows 10, 1909), but when I open a Private Browsing window, I can no longer access them. True, they are still there and can be seen listed under Menu/Add-ons, but I don't see how to control them there, only enable or disable them.

If I want to use NoScript (for example) in a Private Browsing window, how do I set Firefox up to do that? -- jclarkw

Hi,

I'm not sure what has happened but my Firefox browser no longer plays Amazon Prime Videos; quite simply the "play video" links don't work. I've played with the DRM settings, refreshed Firefox via the support options, and have installed the latest version of the browser. I'm running a Win10 desktop. Netflix works fine and Amazon Prime Video works fine through MS Edge, but I can't figure this one out. Does anyone have any suggestions that I could try?

Thanks and Regards

Will Mozilla implement MIDI for musical instruments? I went to sign up to the Yamaha Soundmondo web site and immediately upon landing on the web site I got this message (on the far right- SYNCH Web MIDI not suported Please Use Chrome) and took a screen shot of it. It wants me to download Chrome. There is no way on earth I am installing Chrome on any of my devices. Google knows far too much already. Any way to let Mozilla know Firefox needs this capability? I can’t be the only musician using Firefox.

Thanks,

Jerry

Hi guys, as I have already tried this method found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/9341987 and didn't work, now I'm stucked, and I don't want to change Firefox to another browser. Any tips on how can I completely disable favicons? The method works very well on Windows but on Linux, doesn't. I have also to mention that I am on Manjaro, XFCE (if it helps) Thanks, stay safe!

I'm using a Surface Pro 7, running Win10H. Firefox had a brief period when I first installed it where the on screen keyboard would appear and work, that stopped after a few hours and has not worked since. I fiddled with the settings on both Firefox and my surface, though nothing has changed. Un/re-installing did not help, thought it could reset something. Any fixes or advice would be greatly appreciated.

For clarification, the Accessibility Menu on-screen keyboard does work, but the tablet-specific larger keyboard does not function. It does open and type in other applications.

Deathwishcoffee.com does not load in Firefox. In fact, Firefox doesn't do anything, just sits there. I have followed all the instructions found in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can and it is still not loading the website. If I am told to follow these instructions as an answer to this post, I will uninstall Firefox on all my devices and never use it again. Please familiarize yourself with the instructions in the article before responding to this post.

So far this is the only website I've found that isn't loading. Yes, Chrome, Brave and Microsoft load the page just fine. There is nothing at all wrong with the website itself. This is all Firefox, and nothing that's already been suggested is fixing the problem.

Not sure what happened or why, but almost all settings disappeared - logins, passwords, preferences for page size (+/-), etc. overnight after updating Win10.

I did not uninstall the update, which I think I will do after posting this.

How do I fix this?


I copied logins.json and key4.db from one day prior, - 2/6 - but the 2kb of data were not helpful.


I switched profiles on Friday (I think), after dealing with constant errors - a page is slowing down your browser, or a script is slowing down your browser. Firefox update was on Friday - 85.0.1. A damned mess, if you were to ASK ME.

Hi, I'm unable to change my Firefox Account password.

I navigate to the Manage Account page, click Change next to Password and enter my old and new password and nothing happens. The page gives no indication that the change has applied and my password remains the same.

I have also tried this in a private window, on Google Chrome and on my phone and the same thing happens.

Every time I would click on certain files my professors would post, it would open up a new tab and ask if i wanted to open up the tab in firefox. I click yes, and it opens up a new tab and repeats. Eventually I clicked "do this with all files from now on" and now when i click on the link, even in a completely different browser, it opens up firefox to endless tabs and I have no way of stopping it other than closing the entire browser multiple times until it ends. How can I change this? It's extremely frustrating.

Hello,

This issue seems somewhat unique. Using Firefox on 85.0.1 64-bit (but existed for a while) on Ubuntu 20. My laptop is a dell Inspiron with an nvidia GeForce MX250 and driver version 450.102.04 (but, again, this problem existed on earlier drivers). I dual boot Windows 10 on this laptop and use firefox there, but do not have any issues there.

Sometimes Firefox will just start unloading pieces of the web page. It's not that the tab is crashing, the parts just start visibly disappearing, and I can see other applications or my wallpaper behind it. When a youtube video is playing, the sound will keep going (without issue) even after the video stops and eventually disappears. I can reproduce this problem by having a youtube video playing in a tab, closing my laptop to idle it, and reopening it and logging back in. Doing so ensures this issue happens immediately, but the issue will still occur at other times, with or without a youtube video playing (that's just what I use to test the issue as per my example given).

Going through existing articles, I followed the steps in this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1275189 since my issue seemed similar to theirs. Restarting Firefox in safe mode did indeed stop the issue! Then, I followed the steps to diagnose if it was an extension or hardware acceleration. (I use the default theme so that's not the issue.)

Disabling hardware acceleration didn't solve the problem. Okay, maybe it's not that, I'll turn off the (only) extension I have... And that didn't work either. I turned off hardware acceleration and my extensions, and the issue is still being produced.

So, I'm trying to understand, if safe mode only deactivates extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, why does the issue go away in safe mode but persist in normal mode with all extensions and hardware acceleration turned off on the default theme?

Attached are images of the "unloading" issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Did some housekeeping yesterday and deleted all the cookies Firefox had stored. Soon thereafter I discovered that I'm no longer able to log in at Scotiabank online. I'm immediately shunted to a "Sorry, we could not complete your request" screen. Scotiabank support blames the browser. I am able to log in as normal with Chrome. I've experimented extensively with turning off Enhanced Tracking Protection, erasing cache, deleting history, etc. I see my Firefox updated yesterday to 85.0.1. Wondering if that might be where the problem lies? I'm using MacOS High Sierra version 10.13.6. Thanks for any help.
