The new Firefox print app controls have a default of print ALL. To print a specific number of pages requires three steps: clicking on the drop down, selecting Custom, and then entering the desired pages to print. This setup for pages to print is too time-consuming and not ecological either, in that users may often rely on the default and print all the pages when they are not needed or wanted. ''''What might be better is to place just to the right of ALL a box for entering the selected pages to print, eg. 2-3. ' Entering numbers into this box automatically deselects ALL, as it does on the Windows 10 system app. This way users could immediately enter the desired pages to print. If no page numbers are entered, then the default is ALL. This approach saves time and reduces waste of ink and toner. If ODD and EVEN options must be retained, then retain the Custom drop down, but put the box for selected pages just to the right of ALL for immediate entry of chosen page numbers. Perhaps a high percentage of Firefox users print web pages to selected page numbers--can't prove it, but very plausible.

The addons on Firefox aren't showing up in the toolbar, even though it says that its enabled in the settings page. The only addon showing up is uBlock Origin, nothing else appears on the toolbar. This started only recently, I'm on Firefox 98.0.2 (64 bit).

Thanks in advance!

Hi

I guess this applies for any web browser, but is there an option to disable this with Firefox...? Basically, whenever my BT connection goes offline, Firefox decides to take it upon itself to open up just to tell me it can't connect/that the web is offline etc. It's seriously annoying. I know it's offline as the hub light will change from blue to green/orange etc. It's even worse if I'm doing something else, such as playing on a game, and it's interrupted by the web browser opening itself. :-\

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I download some documents and save them on my hard drive. When I open them, it opens Firefox instead of opening Acrobat reader. I need to be able to work offline with them in Adobe - I do not want the HTML version. This has only started happening recently. If this can't be solved I will have to try another browser. I am a reasonably savvy user but I am not a technical expert. Thanks for any help going - I am desperate. They all seem to have saved themselves as HTML documents. Any ideas?

Restore lost extensions (after using "Troubleshoot mode")

After experiencing some problems (saved tabs being empty, menus gone etc.) I read about restarting into troubleshoot mode ("Help"-"Troubleshoot mode" menu) which solved those problems (I believe "Troubleshoot mode" might be the same as "Refreshing" Firefox, from what I've read -correct me if I'm wrong) . I'm on Firefox 98.0.2 on a Mac.

Following that I quit Firefox and opened it again the normal way which I assume means it went into the normal mode as before, but I realized all my extensions were gone! Reading through some older postings I see they're in a profile named "legacy_BAK.profile", and in addition I have recent Time Machine backups, so any files aren't lost, but I guess the simplest way to fix this is to re-install my extensions -but most extensions (inside the "extensions" folder within the profile folder) only have a cryptic numbered name with and .XPI extension. So how can I find out which extensions I used to have, and better yet -is there a quick way to just install everything back again with a single click (installing it from the legacy profile folder, or just moving something over to the new folder etc.)?

Hi, I did one of those updates you have and it really messed up my computer where it just won't allow me to open many of the website that I regularly use, such as my gmail or even the SSA.gov. Whenever an update is done, some issues come to mess up my computer. So, is it possible that someone can help me solve this issue?

Thanks!

I will start by saying that I have not opened my laptop since March of 2022. It is now November. I go to my Firefox browser like I always have in the past. It opens and does an update. It comes back and I notice that my bookmarks bar is gone. I go to the bookmarks tab and all of my bookmarks are gone. I have never had a "Firefox Profile" before until now. I had to create one to try to get help. How can I get those bookmarks back? I tried to use the troubleshooting option that is listed and it did not work for me. I have a very important account that was in my bookmarks that I need access to. Someone HELP?!

Any site I go to such as my utility companies that have a link for me to open and view my bill while logged into my online account are prevented from opening by Firefox. Their help articles define the pop-up window as a window that opens automatically. That is not what I'm talking about. I am selecting the link. I am giving the site permission to open the window. It is not automatic. Google Chrome, Microsoft edge, no other browser has this problem. please help.

For the past several months, I've had increasingly worse graphical errors on Google Drive. At first it was only in a few documents, and now it's in every single document. These errors only occur on Firefox, no other browser. Text that I type is constantly blurry, oddly-sized, or oddly-spaced, with some letters touching while others have large gaps between them. I've also had some other small issues, like the document thinking that I'm two people and asking me if I want to see "the changes made my collaborators" when I'm the one currently typing (the documents aren't shared with anyone else, and there are never any changes beyond the ones I make), or showing my cursor highlighted with my name as if I were someone else watching myself type. It's made it more difficult for me to focus on work and I don't know what to do about it.

I've tried the following methods (most of them multiple times over the past months) to solve it, none of which worked: - Running the windows in safe mode - Uninstalling all add-ons and themes, clearing cookies and cache, and then restarting my computer - Uninstalling Firefox entirely, restarting my computer, then reinstalling it - Refreshing Firefox - Looking through pages like Firefox Task Manager and such (although the information there didn't really mean much to me, nothing looked out of the ordinary)

Does anyone have any ideas about what I can do about this? I was ignoring it for a while since it's still legible, but it's become really annoying, especially when it makes some words hard to read. Thanks in advance for the consideration. Here's a screenshot of a document with the weirdly-spaced, blurry text:

I have Firefox 99 for Mac "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked History is set to "Remember History" Enhanced Tracking Protection is set to "standard"

Yet every time I return to a site where I've checked "remember me" , I'll get prompted to login, and perhaps also get a security message "you've logged in from a new computer" in my email from the site.

Is there an easy way to verify that Firefox is storing cookies for a site. Maybe an option to right-click on a site's web page and view "cookies are stored for this site" in the context menu? I'm losing a lot of my productivity time logging back into sites that I just logged into earlier in the day.

This just started happening and I'm not sure why.

I access my email via a browser. When i compose an email If I have a .ZIP file that contains a bunch of files. If I want to attach say file # 6 and File # 7 to the email I am composing I would open windows explorer, traverse to the ZIP file location and click on it so it opens in windows Explorer. Then I'd highlight the one or two files I wanted and I'd drag them to the email.

This would typically attach the the files but it no long works - I have a feeling it may be due to windows 98 I hear you guys changed (fixed) how files are processed.

This is awful I now must extract those files to hard disk (of if there's another contained ZIP file within its even more extracting) - I'll this makes so much work and if I forget to delete all the files I execrated I'll run out of space.

Is there I setting that I can set to make it work the way it used to - I don't want to learn another browser but this change has killed my poductivity
