All of a sudden - Both of these websites below give me 403 errors. I cleared the CACHE, rebooted, checked the other settings - Nothing has been changed and I have the most recent FF version installed - 84.0.2 Also both of these can be accessed from any other browser - so it must be a FF issue.

I have used both sites for a long time with no access issues.

https://www.abmp.com/ and https://coursera.org/

All help appreciated! JM

Hard to explain why I am asking here, but here goes:

I am a reseller and use different sources. One of our vendor's websites is showing me retail pricing after I login. Our special prices used to (and are supposed) be visible. If you don't log in, no prices are visible. My sales rep asked IT, who said to clear cache and cookies. And again today, he said it is on my end, not theirs.

Of course, that doesn't solve the problem. Do not even know where to begin.

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?

I sometimes copy and paste things from websites onto word documents. I like to keep the same style font/spacing/etc. when I do. When I use Chrome or Explorer or Edge the font and spacing stays the way it looks on the webpage, when I use Firefox it changes to the default (Times New Roman, double spaced, etc.). If I use "Merge Fonts" it only pastes to what the last thing I typed looked like (not what I want), and if I start a new document and paste something there, it's back to the default settings. Is there anyway to get this working the way I want it, or am I going to have to go back to a different browser for this particular issue?

I just installed Brave, and clicked on "Import settings & bookmarks", then chose Firefox from a popup list

Without typing my password, or doing anything else, Brave then instantly imported all of the saved passwords that I had stored in Firefox. I can now view all of my most secret saved passwords of Firefox... in Brave

This makes me wonder, if Brave can instantly import (and display in clear text) all of my Firefox saved passwords, couldn't any other rogue app do exactly the same?

Shouldn't they be stored in an encrypted format, at least?

Am I missing something or are the passwords wide open that Firefox saves?

The drop-down list with known usernames and passwords extends until below the screen if there is a sufficient number of usernames stored. The funny thing is that the list is scrollable by mouse and arrow (up/down) keys, so it wouldn't be necessary to extend the list that far down. Just until the lower boundary of the current firefox windowwould have been sufficient.

The result is that I can't see (nor select) the usernames that are listed below the screen.

Firefox 75 64 bit on Fedora 32.

I hope this description was clear enough as I'm hesitant to include a screenshot showing all usernames involved on those site.

For anyone who wonders why so many logins: it's a list of email adresses currently in use in a webmail service.


Thanks.

I checked for the malwares the PC with several antivirus software. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it without saving data from the previous versions, with no success. I tried all methods offered by the Firefox Help, but does not work. Please, help me to fix the problem. I am attaching screenshots to illustrate the problem.

Currently, I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Fedora 31. Recently, it's started opening most, but not all links in a new window instead of the current one. Not on all sites, but most. As a pair of examples, it opens links to articles on gasbuddy.com in a new window but not on Slashdot, and until a few months ago, it only opened a new window if I right-clicked and selected New Window from the context menu. I'd like to get the old behavior back, as this is quite inconvenient.

I've noticed for about 2 weeks now, my google street view is not working like it used to. It some times will not respond and when it does respond it is very slow. I didn't used to have this problem, so maybe a new Firefox update or some other issue is causing then problem? How can I view my browser settings to see if some thing there is causing the problem? Hopefully, someone can help and cure the problem. Thanks,
