I have a Canon MG6250 connected via USB. I run Windows 7 with all latest updates and currently the Firefox version is 38.0.5. For quite some time, probably about a year, starting after a new version of Firefox I think , I have trouble printing. (Sorry I can't remember with which version it started happening.) Unless I wait for the printer to ready itself completely, although the print dialogue box appears and I click Print, often (not always) nothing happens. If I try to print again I get a pop-up box saying the print function is not available. If I then close Firefox and try to restart it, it tells me that Firefox is already running; I have to end its process via Task Manager. Often I want to print from several tabs, already loaded with the pages to be printed. Even if I manage to get the first tab to print, somewhere along the line the same thing often happens: before I've printed the last tab's page I get the pop-up box again and I have to end the Firefox process to make it work again. I can usually prevent it from happening if I monitor my computer's CPU activity (via System Mechanic) and make sure all activity has stopped after printing one tab before I try to print the next; this makes printing from Firefox frustratingly slow!

I do not have any printing problems whatsoever from any other application.

Note that fairly recently, due to a system drive failure, I re-installed Windows and all my software. I hoped that a by-product of doing this might fix the Firefox printing problem, but it hasn't.

I'd be most grateful for a solution to this problem.

Project Silk was enabled on Firefox 39 for OS X, but in VMware environment this results a blank screen instead of browser content.

All gfx.vsync.* preferences are false by default, but it doesn't help. Is there are any way to force disable vsync completely?

Hi i have a question about Firefox sync does it stores my profile somewhere online like Google chrome or no? cuz i know that previously it did store in some sync server and when my computer crashed i entered my details and sync key and i get all my profile details from Firefox server but with a new sync after my PC crashed i didn't get any info from server and that is really bad cuz i lost all my passwords, bookmarks etc. I have only one computer with Firefox sync enabled and i don't need to sync several computers and share my data between them my goal is to save all my profile details on Firefox server from a single PC and just in case so i can get everything that i lost from that server. Is it possible to do that now or no?

Following weekend updates to FF 39.0 and Flash, one site does not autocomplete login details. It did before. I have deleted it's cookies and password, changed the password, but the FF 'remember new password' box never appears.

I tried the 'remember password' bookmark: this detected and reset the 2 fields and filled in a new password in FF (but not my username) despite the expected 'remember' box not appearing. Login still fails to autocomplete.

The site HTML contains autocomplete=off for the username and password fields. I understand that this was added by the site IT team in a very recent (simultaneous?) update 'to improve security'. Firefox is (was?) supposed to ignore this and prompt the user to save.

Other sites (eg banks with 'off' set) still autocomplete OK (though I have not changed any passwords on these). Is it FF39, have I missed something, or could the site have another trap set?

Using mac os 10.7.5 and Firefox 38.0.5. Logged in to my bank's web page, my account. When I seek to do a bill payment, the command redirects to a new site. It takes at least 5 minutes to load the bill payment web page for my account. I get a "searching for javascript" message while I wait. Once page is loaded everything works just fine.

Mac Safari will not load the page at all. It just hangs. No problems with windows machine.

Bank IT guy doesn't have a clue. Any way I can speed up the loading?

Thanks.

lets say I have two tabs one is my gmail account and one is my facebook account, now I decide to minimize FF while my Facebook tab is active then I forget which tab I was viewing when it comes to maximizing FF again and I mistakenly remembered being on my gmail tab so I click that and I get a beep and then nothing, I click again and it opens, but if I had clicked Facebook tab it would have opened right away, why it is so frustrating, some times I have several tabs open and I can't remember which one I was viewing last so I click on a random one and get an annoy beep then nothing.

I have upgraded a few times recently to 37 and now to 39 but the firefox homepage search bar has lost all of my history and more importantl, I used to be able to double-click on it to bring up a list of recent searches. Oh yeah, and the font has been changed and is now too big :(

Is there anything I can do to import / get back my list of old searches and change the other bits? If not I will be stuck on 32 / 33 for ever!

Cheers, Jason.

When I open downloaded files using the small popup menu (the one that opens when you click the "arrow pointing downwards" button) they are opened using the text editor.

When I click "Show All Downloads" and open the files from there, they use the right program. This happens in safe mode as well.

I'm using Ubuntu, files open correctly in the file manager.

To reproduce: Go to the Firefox home page and then resize the page small (attached graphic). Graphics card: AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB "Use hardware acceleration where possible" unchecked, as checking it causes additional problems with transient gray boxes over content appearing in random places.
