Why is my Firefox blocking my password manager extension when I try to use it to login to my Firefox account? My password manager is Authomate (www.authomate.com). The extension works for every site but my Firefox account. I tried attaching png images but it just sits there spinning its wheels. Extension is free so you can try it.

Print has been broken since the display interface changed recently.

I have used FF to print placards composed using html, generally contained in tables. This almost always requires "scaling" the page to fit the available space for the printed result.

With the new interface, when I change the scale from 100% (in this case to 120%) blocks of text disappear both on the preview screen and in the resulting printout.

When I do the same with the same html file using Chrome, the page and the resulting printout scale correctly.

Would like to be able to continue to do this using FF. Hope you can address this.

I assume that you know that the FF "submit feedback" is not usable... there is no way to login other than social media, and no apparent way to "submit feedback" by mere mortals.

I have a dual monitor (extended display) setup and 2 Firefox windows open (one for each monitor). When Firefox crashes or is closed unexpectedly, opening it restores the previous session but the order in which the windows are restored is incorrect.

In other words, hovering over the Firefox icon in the taskbar shows 2 window previews open but in the incorrect order; the first window (left window preview) actually points to the right monitor's window and vice versa. As you can imagine this is superbly annoying because when I hover over the left window preview I expect to access the left monitor's window not the other way around!

This is on Windows 10.

I use AOL e-mail, and this opens perfectly well with Firefox. Now, in order to save an e-mail to a folder on my PC I have to save it as an html document to be opened by my browser, i.e. Firefox. For a while now when I try to open any saved e-mail it will open for a few seconds and then it is covered by a Blerk 5 error notice. The following information accompanies it: ERR1800 Report ID: 0ca992e91cc1f7c63-20211015-124427. I would greatly appreciate a fix for this problem. I assume all the data are there safely saved because I can read the e-mails even if only for a few seconds. I need the fix to allow me to open all my old saved e-mails. Thank you.

Since the last update, I have found a problem with BT webmail. For my 3 different ....@btinternet.com email accounts, since the update, when I save an email to the drafts folder, then re-open it to edit and send, I can no longer re-save or send an email that comes from the drafts folder. Pressing the send or save buttons does nothing. New emails started and sent straight away (without going into the drafts folder) are not affected and still work perfectly, only those saved in drafts. This is a feature I use a lot - are you aware, and can it be fixed next update?

I am having a serious problem with inputting information into web page interfaces such as GMail and online forms.

I am seriously dyslexic, so, I have to depend on tools such as copy/paste and keyboard macros in my quest to avoid typos and incorrect information and amounts.

The best example that I have is using GMail's Web interface to compose and respond to emails where the problem has increased to the point where it happens on almost every input session. For example, if I use a keyboard macro to type my name "Beverly" it almost always gets scrambled to something like "Byeverl"

This happens on some, but not all web input pages... another example, is trying to enter a number into a field that simply does not work if I paste. Sometime back, I went so far to create an AutoHotKey macro that put's a delay between each character that is in the copy/paste buffer. That seemed to work for a while, but has since stopped working apparently because the interface now detects that I left the input field in order to trigger the keyboard macro.

Help, Beverly Howard

Why does firefox keep archiving my email replies when I haven't even selected archive? I'll be typing along then, all of the sudden, it just archives the message I'm working on and prompts me that it has been archived? Is there a combination of keys that is doing this? I type really fast and I noticed this only happens when I type fast. I want to disable this feature, it is driving me nuts.

-I logged into a site for which I do not save passwords. -I have several different accounts for this site that I open in different container tabs. -When I logged into the first one the user name and password were filled in. -I went to the saved logins and found it listed there, I deleted this login. -The next day when I logged in to the first one and the same thing happened, FF filled in the user name and password. -I went to the saved logins and this time it was not there, yet it keeps filling the name and password. -Now when I go to the other container tabs for the other accounts FF wants to fill in this user name and password. -Prior to this problem each user name would auto fill in the other tabs, now I have to type them in manually. As these are long user names it's more time consuming because of this glitch. -This is NOT an auto fill problem, I have included a screenshot to show that this is indeed a password issue. -I'm using the latest version of FF on Windows 10 Can someone please help?

Hello, I'll try to describe the issue as clearly as I can. When I go through a page of results and download a PDF, I cannot download a second PDF from the same page unless I first reload the page itself. If I don't do it, the link that would start the download of an additional PDF is inactive. Not a major problem but a bit annoying. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, AC

Did Firefox 3.6 history include the typed in search terms used? It was in 2011 on a Windows Vista PC.

Could they be recovered from a deleted history record?

An 'expert' is claiming that he has recovered, from deleted Firefox 3.6 history file, the data shown in the image, the red type is what it he claims I typed in!

I do not believe that this is possible, most of what he claims is technobabble, but I need verification.

Can you cast any light on the situation?

Thanks

For some reason (probably an update), over the last few months Firefox lost the ability auto login sites like YouTube and others, and this is really annoying with sites that require two-step verification. I have checked settings but everything seems to be Ok. Unfortunately have had to use Chrome for those sites I previously browsed with Firefox and avoid having to login manually. Is there any solution for this? Thanks.

Hello,

    I've been writing in the communication area for an extension we've submitted, and we've been rejected for not answering, but we have answered right where we thought it was supposed to be.   I don't know if the reviewer isn't getting notified that the information is available or not.  I assume it is something where the reviewer isn't made aware of the responses, as the extension is eventually excluded because the answer wasn't provided, although you can see the answers in the messages area for days before the extension submission is closed.
    If possible, I'd like to do what we can to fix this process, as we've been approved and published in Chrome, Edge, and are about to go live (already approved) with a Safari and Safari mobile extension.   We have only experienced these issues in the Mozilla store, so we want to make sure we do what we can to get through this process.

I have used LastPass for seven years. It sure is not perfect, but it certainly help maintain my online security.

So what on earth has happened? I can long on using my saved master password using both Chrome, and Bing ( the latest Microsoft browser - can't remember the name). I don't like to use either. I strongly prefer FireFox.

Beginning within the last month (I think - not exactly when) all of a sudden the LastPass log on procedure changed. Now, only with FireFox, when I click the LastPass icon a dialog box appears asking me to accept Permissions. I click accept, and the log on window appears. The program no longer fills in my email address, nor my stored master password. On the other browsers it does just as it used to do on FireFox.

Moving to the bottom of the LastPassword (using FireFox) log on dialog box to advanced options I always choose to activate the "save email" and save "password" options. Even when I manually enter my email address and master password LastPass does not save either my email or master password.

Mozilla needs to fix this! LastPass is one of the most popular password managers, and this situation is harmful to Mozilla and FireFox reputations and therefore popularity. Purely out of convenience I find myself using Chrome again often. This makes me unhappy on a lot of levels. Please get it done: Fix LastPass on FireFox!
