but i don't see option to enable autofill on desktop. On mobile, autofill only shows USA ans Canada. Why Chrome allow me to use address autofill and Firefox not?

I'm on Firefox 127.0 (42448) ios and all my private tabs were closed on update and now whenever I make a private tab it disappears after the app is closed or refreshes. It's kind of behaving like the setting where private tabs are closed automatically but when I looked in the privacy settings of firefox ios it's not there anymore. Does anyone else have this issue? I know theres an existing problem with tabs for firefox but I don't think this is exactly the same because my normal tabs are totally fine.

Hi! I don't like the automatically updated extensions -feature, it seems to have been turned on nowadays, it has been maybe a year or two when you had control to update them by hand! I don't like this feature and it seems to now be in every browser that I use, Firefox, Opera, Brave, Vivaldi! Is there a way to turn this function off? Maybe a commandline function or an editable thing in a configuration file! Other browser developers should also think about this! I think Firefox has been a good browser to use, I used to use Opera but changed to Firefox quite accidentally when having to install things again!

Until a few days ago, my Firefox would save all the tabs from the previous session. But now it does not, and I still have all the necessary settings enabled. I noticed that it will save the previous session IF I use the Firefox "EXIT" from the "File" menu. However if I use close the session using the upper right hand corner Windows close box (where the "X"), it does NOT save the tabs from the session. I also notice that when I close the Firefox window using the Windows close box, that Firefox (several) show still running under the Windows Task manager, but not when I use the "File:Exit". Running the current FIrefox version 127.0 (64-bit) under Windows 11.

Printing Double sided

I am extremely frustrated with Firefox and it’s printing. This has been going on for quite some time. You’ve been playing around with what was a good and functional printer interface to one that is now a pice of junk! I have been using Mozilla since it was Netscape 2.0

I am running firefox Ver 115.3.1 esr 64 bit on a Dell Desktop running Win 7. In the past I go to a print preview and see how the print out would look on the page. I could also control, my printer functions, like color or black and white, and the quality of the printout.

Today my wife (not real computer savy) started printing several PDF files for compilation into a book/user help package. After she had printed out several articles and well over 20 pages she mentioned to me that the printer wasn’t printing correctly. I asked her what she ment. She showed me. She was printing double sided (to conserve paper). After she went to the printer and looked at the printout they were all wrong. The front side was fine, but the back side was upside down. So when she would put them in a binder, should could the 1st page fine, then flip the page, and you’d have to turn the binder over to read the 2nd page, then turn the binder around again to read the 3rd page.

This isn’t my idea of double sided. It would be fine if I was using a flip chart but not in a binder. So now I’m sitting on over 20 pages of scrap, not to mention how much ink I wasted at about $50/Black cartridge.

I sit down and try to see what she’d done. So I bring up a document, and want to print ONLY page 1 & 2 doublesided so I limit my waste of paper and ink. Sure enough it prints the backside upside down. So I change from flipping long side to flipping short side and try again. Same problem, 2nd page is upside down. I also notice that there is NO print preview, and I can no longer have access to “Printing Preferences” which allow me to change from black & white to color and vise versa, set the quality of the printout. All I can control is Black & White vs. Color, what pages I want to print and portrait & landscape.

I go over to my other desktop running Win 11 and Firefox V 119.0 (64 bit) and try printing double sided. It gives me the same options as Ver 115.3.1 esr 64 bit, AND it gives me a preview screen. So I select double sided printing and it prints the 2nd page upside down. UNSAT!

I’m in this fix because sometime in the past I did an update and you had changed the printer interface. I don’t know when it was changed, maybe before COVID. But it sure hasn’t helped me. So far I’m out over 20 pages of paper, don’t know how much printer ink, and over 3 hours in trying to figure out what’s giong on, then trying to get help, and then having you web sit drop the page I was working on so I lost this posting. Then I got smart and did it in my word processor. All in all a really frustrating day!!

Hope someone has some ideas.

For a week or better I have been unable to download anything through my Firefox browser, I have refreshed and uninstalled Firefox (I had to reinstall through another browser) in an attempt to fix this issue to no avail. I cannot download from verified sites, nor am I able to download Firefox's own extensions or themes (when I attempt I get an error telling me to check my connection, screenshot included).

I would like to be able to use Firefox normally again, with the ability to download files and install my extensions restored.

Hi. I feel like this problem has only shown up in the last couple months but for some reason, on firefox, when say watching something on youtube and I go to pause or skip around in the video I'll get this very unpleasant distorted digital noise sound very briefly. I've tried turning off and back on hardware acceleration and some other things but no dice. I can hear the distortion on my onboard sound, my usb headset, and hdmi audio through the graphics card so I don't think its my hardware. This distortion also doesn't happen with say MPC/VLC or watching Youtube via Edge or Chrome.

This has been bugging me for ages. Happened on Windows 10 and now on Windows 11.

I start watching some video on YouTube or whatever, decide it's not useful/what I want, stop playing it, close the tab or navigate away, but if my device locks, the controls for this old, discarded video, that I didn't want to watch, are on the lock screen.

I wouldn't mind if it was a video I was currently watching but it's somehow remembering the last thing I started to watch. I can see no hint anywhere else that it's still active in any way at all.

The only way to get rid seems to be to close Firfox.

This is very annoying because it seems you can't watch anything without Firefox remembering it and putting on the lock screen until the end of the session, so it could be cluttering things up all day unless I close everything and (in my case, because of prvicy settings) delete cookies and log myself out of most sites.

I've tried multiple searches but all I've found here is a post about turning off media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled but I don't actually want to do that, I just want Firefox to forget videos when I've closed the tab or navigated away from them.

Elsewhere I found a suggestion to disable dom.media.mediasession.enabled but that setting isn't found.

Any help much appreciated.

I have two questions:

1. Will WASM and JIT be turned on or not affect the operation of RLBox?

I currently have the following about:config settings set to false, I'm wondering if this will cause the RLBox to not function?

javascript.options.ion javascript.options.baselinejit javascript.options.native_regexp javascript.options.asmjs javascript.options.wasm

I hope Mozilla staff will consider listing the operating status of RLBox in about:support, so that it will be clear at a glance.

2. Enabling "security.sandbox.content.shadow-stack.enabled" will cause add-ons to not function properly.

This setting seems to have been around for a long time. Is there any progress on this? Chrome has supported this feature for quite some time.

I would be grateful if you could help clarify this and inform me of the answer.

After one of the updates a few months ago, I have started to have trouble with firefox. After a while if I try to open a new tab and type in a link, the tab will try to load forever and I will not be able to open any more as doing another tab and typing a new link will have the same problem. I found that at first I could close the browser and reopen it to have the tab fully load and refresh whatever was already open, but after a bit that started to have an issue too. Most times now if I shut down and relaunch firefox within a few minutes the browser will open with all of the tabs open but they are all blank, with no links filled in, pages loaded, or anything. If I close and reopen after that then it only opens with a "new tab" page and everything that was open is lost. None of the more recent updates for firefox have seemed to fix this issue.

Thank you.
