Good morning:

I updated FF 91 ESR to 102 ESR and I'm not liking the Print interface. The main problem is that the printer properties are not available. The printers default is to print from tray 2, but sometimes I want to print from tray 1.

If it can be changed then I prefer code that I add to User.js "user_pref("print.tab_modal.enabled", false); " is being ignored.

thanks Norbert

I am sorry to invoke other browsers here, but I have switched from Chrome and found one feature to be completely intuitive there and impossible in FireFox. I have multiple profiles and want to open external links in the most recently active window. With Chrome, this was as simple as activating the window to open an external link in, then running the external link normally. In Chrome the link would open in any window that was recently active, including private windows. In FireFox it will only open in the first opened window of the first opened profile. I have not found an intuitive way of handling this in FireFox. Is there a setting or trick to it that doesn't involve rewriting URLs?

This is probably a Windows 10 question, but its Help forums are so poor....

From a list of files in Windows Explorer, I want to right-click on a file name to pull up context menu, then click Send To, and then click Mail Recipient. I want Windows to respond by opening Firefox to default gmail page, with the file as an attachment.

Should be easy. But from what I've found so-far, that legacy feature works only with stand-alone MAPI programs like Thunderbird and Outlook. I want to do with web mail.

Has anyone gotten this to work?

Thanks

Bill

Hello,

Whenever I try to log into my Chase Bank account, using my Firefox browsers, I get a message that says that my browser is out of date, and needs to be updated. But I am using browser version 103, and I believe that is the current version. I contacted Chase about this, but they did not offer any solutions to the problem.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Thank you

A few days ago I got the new Firefox version 103.0.1. And now áll websites I visit are larger than they were before, I didn't change anything and zoomlevel in e.g. about:preferences is still 100%

Now, with all the websites I visit I have to manually change the zoomlevel to 90%, to have them at the same level as before the update.

What do I have to change to have the zoomlevel set permanently at 90% ?

I've tried numerous times the "solution" Mozilla gives me: "Change zoomlevel in about:preferences to 90% but that doesn't work: no matter how many times I close Firefox, and restart, or restart the entire computer, it still defaults to 100%, and I still have to change the zoomlevel to 90% for each website I visit.

How best resolve "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" for local services URLs?

Hi. Have searched FF help re "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" but I don't see a clear answer that I understand!

I have my Router, NAS, etc. with local URLs (192.168...) to access their web front-ends. FireFox (FF) is set to "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows". Whenever I enter these URLs into FF it gives me the error "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead". For my router it says certificate MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT. For my NAS it says SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER. Both are very reputable companies, but clearly have not provided well prepared Certificates. I can of course "Accept the risk and continue", since I know both are valid local services. But this has to be done each time. My "acceptance" is not retained.

Is there a better, safe solution? If so, please explain in easy language for the non-technical reader.

Many thanks.

Since updating, "Exit Full Screen" now causes viewed page to become a narrow sliver at the top of the screen, and the page unusable. I typically drag pictures from my desktop to Facebook, etc., but can no longer do that. (I know there is another way to access pictures from the desktop, but it is currently unreliable on my machine, which is very slow and wonky right now.) Can I revert to the former function where "Exit Full Screen" just makes the page smaller but still usable?

How to make FF refresh proxy settings from command line/script?

I configured my Windows 10 Firefox proxy to use system proxy settings, and I have a script can based on different network environment modify the system proxy autoconfiguration script address (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AutoConfigURL) in registry to update the proxy settings. Internet Explorer works well - new proxy configuration usually become effective in 1 or 2 minutes after the change. However, each time after my script changes the registry proxy address (without FF restart), I have to go to Firefox Tools->Settings->Proxy to manually change it to another value (in my case it's from "Use system proxy settings" to any other value), confirm it, and then change it back. Then FF is able to reload the autoconfiguration script to make it work. This is really a headache.

I just wonder is there a way to notify FF to reload the proxy autoconfiguration script address from registry from command line so that my script can trigger it automatically after the registry is modified?

Thanks.

I am trying to work out if a cookie on a web page sent an alert to an ambulance chaser for a minor injury I received. One way to narrow the search is to look at the timing of my use of the webpages that day. The History tool in Library has a number of columns including Added and Last Modified. Both of these are blank in the listing. I can see no other place where a date might be requested or recorded. Sometime last Monday I did the relevant Google search- but when exactly? Was it before or after 16:16? Is it possible to find out in Firefox?

I like the button that shows the status of anything I elect to download (e.g. an image to put in an error report).

However about a week ago I started getting a pulldown style display in addition to the little status icon. Is there any way to shut that off? It's annoying.

How to make Firefox open local font file for local page?

Hi,

I'm working on a web site whose owner wants an unusual font : papyrus

I have the papyrus.ttf file in the root directory of this site, both locally and on the server.

In <style>, I have : @font-face {

   font-family: papyrus;
   src: url(papyrus.ttf);

}

And I add : font-family:papyrus; among the <style> settings for requested parts of the page

This functions fine on the server, but not locally. So to view the pages I have to upload them after every modification, and this is a bit tedious.

Is there a way to make it function locally, please? Either by adding some more code to the pages or by changing firefox settings?

Firefox can open image files locally, <a href> functions both locally and externally, so why wouldn't font files also function locally?

A workaround could be to make Firefox display all web pages in papyrus, but this would be a last resort...
