Firefox slows down or even freezes for a longer time when I am typing in text in forms (like new GMAIL messages, search boxes, etc). Especially when I make mistakes and delete some.

I have Refreshed Firefox and removed the Adblocker add-on, which I thought might cause the problem, but the problem persists.

Any idea how to tackle this?

Hi there,

I'm building my first website. When I log in (jam-works.org/wp-admin) the very right end of the top bar in the 'dashboard' menu shows a blank, empty box where my avatar or pic or Gravatar or whatever should be ("1of2" below). The profile section from which to change this displays that same blank square with a link: "You can change your profile picture on Gravatar".

Which I've done. When I open jam-works.org/wp-admin with another browser, it displays the picture ("2of2" below), but I really don't want to use other browsers. I tried Firefox 'Options', 'Privacy & Security' and 'clear data', rebooted but no luck.

Can someone please help? I'm older than technology, so please type slowly so I can understand. Seriously. I just found out that an "Ethernet" isn't a thing to catch the Ether Bunny with, sooooo, yeah - please kinda spell it out for me if you can.

Thanks!

I stopped using Chrome a while ago and I use, ahem, Bing for searches. Sometimes, when I click on a link I get a "404. That’s an error. The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know." while using Firefox. I copy the link and paste it into the browser Edge and the site comes up no problem. Does firefox used a cached version of Google while Edge does not? Is there a way to resolve this?

I decided to stop using Google some time ago so made the full time change to Firefox and a different search engine. A tad bothersome that Google is still there. Not really interested in going to MS Edge...

Hi

Is possible to change names of connected equipment in Firefox account?

If I have open card in my f.e. home PC, and I want to send it to my another computer. OK - I can choose send to .... (I see full name of my another equipments).

BUT

If I want to do this from my smartphone - I don't know witch equipment I want to choose, because I see only this Send this card to "Firefox on equipment ..."

The names in Firefox on Android devices in this menu is to short to identification to which equipment I want to send this card (I have connected a few)

I can't find settings in Firefox account where I can do this.

So I think this is a big hardness to use this a very good idea from my android device

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?

On my old computer - Linux Mint 19 with current Firefox installed, I had enabled an account and set a master password. Now I'm upgrading to a new computer. Firefox does not recognize the old master password. I found the setting to enable a new account password, but through the multiple jumps needed to get this set up, it frequently locks me out for 15 minutes. You encouraged saving passwords in Firefox. Switching the method for storing the passwords between versions and then having frequent 15 minute lockouts will make me abandon this platform. I don't have time for this. I do have my passwords backed up, but there is no where in Firefox that I can see in the passwords section to import from Firefox. I'm very disappointed.

I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

Everytime I update to a new Firefox, I lose my auto logins on sites. I have to get out my Password list and manually login to every frikkin' site. I keep putting off updating, hoping that maybe the problem has been fixed, but like Lucy pulling the football from Charlie Brown, I give in and update and WHAM!

If this can't be fixed, is there a way to disable auto Firefox updates or even that nagging box in the upper right hand corner.

I don't do a lot of surfing on my PC any more, so to have this continually happen over and over again is extremely aggravating!

Hi community,

Somehow the Other Bookmarks folder showed up at the end of my bookmarks bar. I am pretty sure it was not there yesterday. I assume that somehow I accidentally placed it there.

The problem is that I can't either move it, or remove it from there. When you select it, delete option is grey and not available. Does anyone now exactly how to remove it from the bookmarks bar?

Thank you people... :)

I find I have two copies of Firefox, in both the Program Files and Program Files (x86) folders. Both of them are 64-bit however, and there is only one entry in Programs and Features.

How do I remove one of these copies cleanly? The only problem it causes is that firefox appears twice on the default browser settings page, which is annoying.

I noticed when I try to click on a link to print something the printing dialogue will be kind of out of focus (hidden) so I can't do anything but press ESC to get out of it. When I scale the Firefox window to a smaller size it works as intended. On my 2560x1440 screen it works in all window sizes. Only on my 3840x2160 screen this happens when the window is maximized. Would be nice if somebody could fix this! Thank you! Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Win 10.

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Good morning,

Hope this finds you all well and safe with 2021 well here. I got wondering about this hence me posting this to see about why the Firefox synced tabs information which I have my other laptops connected to my account doesn't have the updated sites shown or anything relevant to not having any tabs open since I don't have Firefox open on one of my other laptops but see an open webpage under Sync for it. Hope this makes sense for you to help out so I can see how to get around this if anything. Thank you. Hope to hear from one of you. Have a good day and stay safe.
