I'm surprised that a community-based web developer would flood its users with constant messages. I'm referring to when I open Firefox for Windows, and constantly receive message banners at the bottom of the browser. You'd half expect it from a commercial web developer, but even they refrain from doing that.

Please stop this practice as it's very annoying and distracting. Perhaps a menu option for "Suggestions" where the user may opt to view such messages is a better idea than thrusting them constantly on the user.

In better news, I've noticed Firefox is a faster, less clunky browser than it has been in the past - good work :)

I had accidentally refreshed my Firefox, and after adding back all my old data, I found that the pocket stories were missing form my new tab. I manged to fix this issue, but when I go into new tab settings to make it show more than 3 stories, there are no options for them. It just gives me options for search, top sites, highlights, and snippets. How do I get these settings back?

Two-sided printing rotating on wrong axis

How can I set two-sided printing to rotate on the long axis (so both sides are printed in the same direction, and when you turn the page you can keep reading easily)? With the new upgrade it keeps defaulting to printing on the short axis (so the second side is printed upside down) which makes it very difficult to read smoothly. This has always been easy to set previously. Now the Print menu only allows you to toggle Two-Sided Printing on and off, not to choose the axis. The system dialog does include this setting, in theory, but it doesn't work. I have tried changing it to Long-Edge Binding several times. Each time I change the setting and print immediately, and it still prints with Short-Edge Binding which I do not want. Help! If this can't be fixed I will need to stop using two-sided printing entirely, which will mean wasting a lot of paper.

Hy all,I can't access youtube.com. When I try Mozilla says:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.youtube.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

ANY FIX? TNX!

When trying to use Google meet, Firefox asks for permission to use the mic from my webcam (Logitech Pro9000) but not video. The only video option shown for permissions is my NDI source. The Logitech is nowhere to be found in the pull-down. Works fine in Edge, Windows Camera, etc.

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

Hello, all:

I thought I could try reaching out to see about why Firefox somehow reset itself or something earlier tonight then I lost some recent bookmarks with the bookmarks I had in the bookmarks bar so I had to set it up again and am not too sure of whether it'll happen again which I hope won't. Is there a simpler way or something so I can be sure to keep the bookmarks I have since I have quite a number of them? Hope this information helps you figure out the issue I had earlier and how to not have it happen again at some point which I hope won't be the case. Thank you in advance if you reply to this post.

I don't remember exactly the date, but I think it started after a update(firefox/windows). The oldest pic I have is from 23/11/20. Firefox was running without no problems, then this started.

Gallery

The problem is High cpu usage from time to time. Making firefox slower and also freezing tabs. It's so annoying. Made me use Edge that runs incredibly smooth, I was impressed( I can even watch media in 1080p with no problem).

Then I noticed through the task manager that the 'Host service Windows font cache service' is always present, as you can see in the gallery. I didn't find anything related to that.

Tried starting in safe mode, refresh, uninstalled and installed today(24/02) and nothing worked. This is driving me crazy because I love using the browser.

My PC Setup is: Windows 10 Home i3-4130 8GB ram no video card

And I use the free avira antivirus.

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!
