When I try to print anything in Firefox, the print preview window comes up with a spinning cursor where the page preview belongs, and it takes two minutes before it goes away and the actual preview appears. Only then can I actually print. Whatever process is taking two minutes even prevents me from quitting Firefox -- if I try to quit within that two minutes the FF window does close, bu* Bulleted list itemt the app itself doesn't shut down (as seen from the icon in the dock) until those two minutes have elapsed.

I can bypass the wait by clicking Print Using System Dialogue at the bottom right of the preview window, so I have a workaround. (Although whatever process it's waiting for is still going on, since I still can't quit FF until those two minutes elapse!)

Thanks for any help!

I am using Firefox Browser V81.0 (64-bit) on MacOS Catalina and I'm experiencing issues with downloading files specifically from Google Drive. I can download other files using Firefox, but it doesn't work when using GDrive. I know it's an issue with Firefox because I've tried downloading the GDrive files using Safari and it's fine.

What happens is I'll click download and then there is no prompt that asks me if I'd like to download the file.

I also looked at this thread and followed the troubleshooting measures (including clearing the browser cache and starting Firefox in Safe Mode), but it did not solve the problem: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1157677]

I've also tried un-installing/re-installing Firefox. And I have my adblocker disabled for Google Drive.

Any suggestions for how to resolve the problem?

I installed the Duckduckgo extension and decided after a week that I didn't want to use it any longer. I disabled the extension and in Preferences/Search selected Google to once again be my default search engine. But, when I do a search, Duckduckgo comes up as the default, and when I look in Preferences/Search it again shows as the default. I went back into extensions and totally removed Duckduckgo, reset Google again as the default but it reverts to Duckduckgo. I went into One-Click Search Engines and removed Duckduckgo, but then when I try to select my default search engine there are no search engines from which to choose. I clicked on Restore Default Search Engines but then I'm back to Duckduckgo being the default search engine. I've spent hours searching online with no success. How do I get rid of it and get Google back as my default? I'm using Firefox 82.0 on an iMac running Catalina. I updated to 82.0 hoping that might solve the issue, but no luck.

Firefox won't play any video, on any website at all. I get different error messages on different sites, such as: The video playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the video used features your browser did not support OR Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video. I've tried following some of the advice in the forums here, so I cleared the cache and the cookies, I ensured DRM content is enabled, and I unchecked the 'Use hardware acceleration when possible' option under preferences. None of this has made any difference. I also restarted firefox and installed an adobe flash player add on. Still no success. Any advice?

I dislike how bad the customer service is. Firefox doesn't listen to anyone and works hard to make sure they cannot listen to anyone. Notice how this link doesn't work: https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page

However, the main reason I no longer use this is the back and forward buttons don't work on 3rd part mice. It;s really annoying, and I don't want to get carpal tunnel over manually reaching for buttons that don't actually require that.

In short, I'm not a masochist. I want products that are not frustrating; who doesn't? The "community" (i.e. outsourced customer service to unpaid lemmings who give their one and only lives to this for some reason) doesn't result in changes or answers.

Because Mozilla refused to receive feedback elsewhere, I need to post this here to give them some kind of a clue that they're moving in the wrong direction. 3rd party hardware is everywhere. Accommodate it or fall behind into uselessness.

Strange behaviour when copying images on Mac

Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

Recently I have issues in Zoom meetings. To make browsing a bit more private I went and activated some of the settings from privacytools.io, but I can't remember changing privacy settings before the problems started occuring. On the Firefox Beta channel I don't see any video streams (not even my own) and on the nightly channel I hear others audio speed up and they sound like mice and they here me extemely slow.

Does anyone else have these issues or an idea which settings might cause this?

I'm using a MacBook Air with OS 10.15.7, and I've updated Firefox several times. It tells me it's running version 86. However, when I try to access certain websites like Turbotax or even a reader app, it tells me my browser is unsupported. These sites always list Firefox as a supported browser under a list of: try these browsers instead. If I click on the Firefox link they give me, it takes me to the Firefox download page. I've even tried uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it. No luck. Anyone out there have a solution?

I am using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit) on a Macbook running OS X 10.13.6.

This problem has been afflicting me for six months or so. On certain websites that open a new page in a new window, the new window instantly enters what I would describe as a "resizing loop": the window starts small and immediately maximizes. Each time it fills the screen, though, it immediately shrinks back down and starts again. This looping behavior continues endlessly, until I kill Firefox or somehow manage to get the malfunctioning window to close. On my employer's webmail, for instance, I'm not able to compose a new message, because it tries to open a new window and gets stuck.

The resizing is very fast and very incessant, fast enough to induce nausea in the unsuspecting user. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
