The ability to edit and customize the headers and footers for printing was one of my main reasons for switching from Chrome to Firefox. Now I can't find where to do this. I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

Could you add a option of closing tab with <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>w</kbd> to the advanced preference?

Also, I realized that:

```browser.tabs.warnOnClose False``` Does this option activates warn when closing the tab? If your answer is yes, it is not working at all.

I want to change background color in Firefox from white to gray (because my eyes get tired of white)

I try to change it this way: Preferences -> Language and appearance -> Font -> Colors

But it does not work as expected on some complex web sites. All I want to do is to darken the background, but not to change color of other elenments (links, text, scrollbars).

Can I do it in Firefox ? How [Preferences -> Language and appearance -> Font -> Colors] works in Firefox? Perhaps, there is some "override css" for the entire browser?

All. The answers to all the issues with security errors like SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE end up with "contact the web owner". In many cases for me, these web sites are not internet sites but hardware HTTP servers (e.g. like a system's BMC or iLO) and there is no system administrator to contact. The web sites open up fine in Chrome. There has to be other solutions (like setting an exception) to work around these issues. Eddy

This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

I had to add Javascript because one of my accounts need Javascript to open. After installing Javascript and allowing for all to be 'true', I still get this message when I try to open a 'show blocked content' in my email.

"The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (javascript) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address."

I never had any problem before installing Javascript. Thanks for any solutions.

Trying to use a virtual terminal for my credit card processing for my business but firefox is not giving access to share location to the site even after I have manually allowed location sharing. This is the message I receive when I try to use the terminal: Sorry, we can’t load Virtual Terminal. We couldn't access your location. To use Virtual Terminal, allow Clover dashboard to know your location on your browser, then refresh the page How do I get this corrected?

Hello, I've noticed a change since the last update and don't understand why?

When opening the bookmarks tab I would get the drop down of a long list of links I have saved. I sometimes bunch them into groups so when looking down the long list, I can see the link I want better when more than one are from the same website.

But my issue is that when I went through the list and found that group of links, I could click onto one to open the page. In the past before the update I could click on the bookmarks drop down again, and still see the same area of links I had just clicked on.

Now when the bookmarks drop down closes it defaults to the top of the list and I need to scan down to find the links I was looking at again. Why? Yes when I closed the browser off and reopened it the bookmarks list would start at the top again. But if left opened I could click on the bookmarks tab and it would open to the same link area I clicked onto last.

Is there a way in settings I can reverse this annoying, unnecessary change.

A word to the Firefox workers that like changing things for no reason. I use Firefox because I like the things your browser has that the others don't. Keep taking the little things away that people like, which you seem to keep doing, then my favourite browser will just become "The same old s#*@" like all the others.

Hello,

I need to export many profiles that are connected to my FFX account. these are the profiles found by going to "about:profiles". These do not restore on a new computer after signing in to a ffX account.

I have followed the steps outlined in this support article but it does not work, and I don't think applied to "about:profiles". https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles YouTube videos also do not appear to focus on importing the 'about:profiles'.

If someone knows how to do this, I would be very grateful.


Thank you Liam

I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

STOP forcing browser/plugin/extensions to run: Google, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo, eBay, Wikipedia, and whatever else you are forcing down our throats

Several people have complained and NOBODY is listening. I specifically switched to FF so I don't have to deal with intrusive sites. FF I thought claimed to be UNLIKE GOOGLE and was more "private," so why are you putting in a Google browser/plugin/extension and forcing it to run on our PC's? I have enough crap on it taking up MEMORY and slowing it down, don't force anything people do NOT want. Just because these might be popular with many does NOT mean everybody wants it. Get rid of Google, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo, eBay, Wikipedia, and WHATEVER else you are forcing us to run on FF.

Does FF have an agreement or partnering with these companies to TRACK US where ever we go on the internet? Looks like it. Per Wikipedia: DuckDuckGo earns revenue by serving ads from the Yahoo-Bing search alliance network and through affiliate relationships with Amazon and eBay. OK, so we have 4 of those And this at https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/best-private-search-engine: DuckDuckGo displays ads for affiliate sites in the right sidebar, which is a little less aggressive than Google which presents ads at the top of search results. It earns additional profits from commissions from sites like Amazon and eBay, so you may want to be wary if those pop up a lot in search results. Also: As DuckDuckGo’s CEO, Gabriel Weinberg, explains in a Quora answer, the search engine does use your IP address to serve local results.

Why is FF pushing these sites when many of us do NOT use them nor want them? Why don't you add them as extensions where you can CHOOSE it if you wish? I found instructions on how to delete them in the FF File Explorer folder because merely deleting them in Settings does NOT remove them permanently as FF has them "hidden," however, they just come back and it messed up other add-ons. ALSO, these add-on's you are forcing on us is TAKING SPACE on my PC and I resent that.

I do NOT want to HIDE THEM, I want them REMOVED PERMANENTLY.
