I have recently noticed when I copied web address which was in Japanese after copying on a note pad or even in the MS outlook email it turned like this %E3%82%B9%E3%. Before it was copied in the same language such as English or Japanese. When I look at the address in the browser it is in Japanese but if I copy and paste it turn in to %E3%82%B9%E3%. What could be the cause? Is it normal. Any guidance/help will be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

When I press [↑] or [↓] after opening a new tab, a dropdown list appears. One has a location to my linux computer (file:///home/foo.html) and has a gray thumbtack icon. What is it and how do I delete it?

When I open a new tab and press either [↑] or [↓] or click in the location bar (the blank space where the URL goes), a dropdown list appears. See attached screenshot for the list.

There are some frequently visited sites like gmail. There is one bookmarked site I frequently access. In the screenshot, this is the one with the blue star. And then there's the mysterious URL to an html on my Linux Mint computer ("/home/[...]/[...].html”). The icon for this is a gray thumbtack.

I press the down key until this mysterious URL is selected, and then press Delete, but it doesn’t get deleted.

What is this and how do I get rid of it? I tried searching for it in my Bookmarks, but I don’t think it’s a bookmark.


I'm on Firefox 81.0 (64-bit) Linux Mint. But I've had this problem for many versions now.

Hi,

Pages don’t seem to be updating properly on our website https://efi.int on Firefox.

Here’s what you get on firefox: boxes in the wrong order and not formatting properly, even though I’ve cleared the cache (on the EFI website CMS, and on Firefox on my browser!)

It happens in Firefox in MacOS and Windows version 82 and 82.0.1. For Chrome, Edge and Safari works OK.

Shrink-to-fit for printing does not work in Firefox 82.0.2

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

I'm ising Firefox on a Windows 10 machine. Lately any time I open a new window it insists on opening several dozen tabs from previous sessions. I cleaned the cache. No change. I rebooted. NO change. I uninstalled it using an installer (Revo) that supposedly checks for all kinds of leftover files. I then rebooted. I saw no signs of it on my machine. I downloaded a fresh copy and installed from scratch. When I open the initial page it's fine. As soon as I open a new page all the old things are back in a gazillion little tabs. It's kind of annoying. Not to mention the time it takes to close everything by hand.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I am using Firefox version 82.0.2 (with three extensions: Ghostery, HTTP Header Live and Noscript) and JavaScript. In JavaScript I has used the href "http://localhost/.../.../...?webnvg=n&webvrs=tst" and changed the webnvg parameter from 'n' to 'y' by the command: window.location.replace("/.../.../webnvg=y&webvrs=tst"); But I still got the same error "Blocked by DevTools", whereafter the current url is used (i.e. with the webnvg parameter 'n'. What should I have done wrong?

Hi, I am a web developer and use CSS Inspect a lot - hours usually, everyday usually. I have been using Chrome for this for a few years, and they changed the Inspector layout in a way that slowed my workflow down tremendously, so now I'm using Firefox more for that. I have a few questions...

  1. In the Computed tab of Inspector, is it possible for the field / value pairs to collapse into one line? In Chrome - (first time you've heard a sentence start like that, I'm sure) - if I resized the sections, at a certain point they would do this. That way I can see twice as much, and all that space isn't wasted after the attribute. Is this possible here? I can tweak anything I need to - just looking for where to go.

Attached is the way it looks now, and a little excerpt mockup I made showing what I am hoping to achieve.

  1. Secondly, is it possible to have the Layout and Computed tab consolidated into one tab? In Chrome, I used to love seeing the box model directly above the computed styles.

Thanks, Ben

After the latest Firefox update was automatically carried out, I found that my access to my e'mail on a web based site is being prevented. I enter my normal name and password, I can see communication links taking place in the bottom left hand corner of my web page but then nothing happens, my entry web page does not go to the e'mail account web page.

I have tried changing the proxy contol to both "None" and "Automatically controlled by Firefox" but that has no effect. I am not using, nor is there any Proxy involved. I have also checked the firewall and that is open for my e'mail site.

The e'mail access was fine untill this update was installed.

What do I need to do?

Many thanks for any help.

On the new home page with all those web site icons, and also in Bookmarks, SOME but not most web sites require you to click, slowly, to open a web page. Otherwise nothing happens. The most common is Microsoft Outlook web mail, as used by our University as standard email (Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). This started a couple of Firefox updates ago.

I find nothing about it anywhere.

The delay between clicks needs to be quite long like a second or more. In some cases up to 30 seconds works. At a couple of seconds it always works. If I close outlook and then try again later, after a minute of so that usually but not alwas does not happen, but after an hour, always.

If I start up Web Developer Network before trying, it says it sends a "get" but a red "circle with line through it" icon (i.e. the usual "don't" one) appears with "blocked" written in red.

How do I fix this?
