Using Firefox on desktop, Windows 11. I am a long term Firefox fan/user.

My problem is I cannot find anywhere an easy method to add a shortcut on my Home Screen (which has now been a FF feature for some considerable time).

I am sure there was something available to do this in a prior version some time back. If I search the internet, I only come across articles describing how to do it on Firefox Android.

I know I can manually edit a box on the Home Screen to create what I need.

Sometimes new web sites that I visit appear in the boxes and I can then pin them in place - but the behavior around this is very erratic and unreliable - seems like random chance for an icon to appear on the home screen for a newly visited site. If this was more consistent, I could work with that.

BUT - where is the **intuitive** option??!!

I should be able to right-click on a tab and select "Add to Home Screen".

As simple as that.

Or drag and drop a link, or tab to the home screen - but this just opens the link. I have tried everything obvious that I can think of.

Anyone?

Many thanks :)

I wanted to print out an order placed online but could only print part of it.

The order took up about 1.5 pages when displayed in Firefox, but I could only print the upper 2/3 of it. That’s all the Print Preview displayed. It was cut off at the bottom. There was no option to print the missing lower third or a second page.

I can scroll Firefox to display the lower part but Print Preview still shows only the upper part.

I can change FF’s scale to 80% in order to show the whole order on the screen, but Print Preview still only shows the upper part.

I can scale Print Preview to 70%, but then it’s difficult to read.

I don’t recall having this problem with earlier versions of Firefox.

How can I print my order on 2 pages so that I can read it?

Hello,

I use FF with the setting on start to restore the tabs of the last session.

Now I need a specific tab active/focused on start. (It is a WebRTC for our phone system and if it not focused at start ring tone will not be played)

Is there a way to start with my last opened tabs restored but this specific tab active and in selected/focused.

Pinning this tab seems to load it but WILL not play a ringtone without clicked first. If I end FF with this tab active and therefore the tab is active on next start the ring tone will be played.

But knowing me I WILL forget to click on this tab either on start or before ending FF.

Hi, for me the most intuitive behavior for creating new tabs is to insert after current when using the keyboard shortcut, and inserting at the end when clicking the plus sign at the end of the row.

I can log into my Firefox account on my Macbook Air with my email address and password, I can log into Firefox on my iPhone via pair, but I cannot log into Firefox on my Mac Mini using the same email address and password, the Mac Mini keeps saying my password is incorrect.

I'm running Firefox version 100 on both my Macbook Air and my Mac Mini. The sync feature works fine between my MacBook Air and my iPhone. The Firefox account works excellent between my MB Air and iPhone, but I would like to have my bookmarks, history and passwords synced to my Mac Mini as well.

The "only" way I know how to log into my Firefox account on my Mac Mini is using my email address and password. The same email address and password works fine on my MB Air and iPhone. But when I enter my email address and password on my Mac Mini, I get the "Incorrect password" message. I have carefully re-entered my password several times with no success.

I am concerned about "resetting" my password as the dialogue suggests I may lose my bookmarks, logins, and passwords. I really, really, don't want to do that. Besides, they work fine on my MacBook Air and iPhone.

I don't have a resolution to this issue. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance, Glenn Cooper

I just bought a new laptop and installed the firefox browser on it. I was trying to log into my account for Elder Scrolls online so I could download the game onto my new machine, but the sign in window would blink and a little white box in the lower left would briefly read "javascript;"

I have no trouble logging on to my account from the site on my older computer, which presumably does not (yet) have the same version of firefox as the newer machine. I was able to log in to the ESO site from my new computer via chrome, so at least I can download the game.

But I'm puzzled as to why Firefox is suddenly incompatible with this site when it never has been before to my knowledge.

Is there any way to reorder the URL bar back to how it used to be in older versions of firefox?

It doesn't make any sense to prioritise google search over bookmarks.

Is it possible to go to the older style where search is at the bottom and only becomes the priority match when nothing else can be found.

"Search suggestions" are disabled. Autofill is also disabled. The problem also occurs on a fresh install inside a VM, so I doubt it has anything to do with userchrome/about:config

Thanks.

hi,

i'm using FF (version 98 at the moment) to print local files. It is key to me to edit header and footer for each print! the only solution i found so far to edit them at all, is to go to about:config and for example search for print.print_headerleft. Besides that is not usable at all, it simply doesn't work! The header and footer remain the same. Please tell me how can i change header and footer?

If you delete the, in my opinion much better "page setup", why don't you include all it's funktions in the new print dialog?

another problem is the size of the new print preview! it's much to small! make it resizeable please.

Or just give us back the "page setup". That would be a big advantage over chrome and edge, which suffer the same printing problems.

Thanks

Hi!

I am not sure, if Mozilla is the reason, or Facebook is the reason. But since I can't get any help from FB, I'd like to check also here.

At first, I thought that the problem is on my side, since I am using ICC profiles and maybe I did something wrong. But It is not the problem on my side. I tried with an original jpg file, directly from my camera.

So, when I upload JPG to the Facebook, color of the image changes. This happens only if I publish it directly to my FB wall. If I go to FB "publishing tools" (on FB pages), everything works normal. If I upload the same photo via for example Chrome or Vivaldi, everything works, even if I upload directly to the FB wall.

So the problem occurs only If I upload from Mozilla (I have latest version 100) to the FB wall. Not via "publishing tools" on FB page. But problem is the same if I publish on my FB business page wall. So I assume that the problem is on FB side, that somehow renders files differently then via their Publishing tools. But I am allowing that Mozilla does something to them via the interface.

There must be some problem with Mozilla too, since all images work OK with Chrome or Vivaldi. So, something in relation of Mozilla - Facebook wall.

Currently I just use Chrome for uploading to FB, but I don't want that.

Not sure what to do now. FB does not reply, maybe Mozilla can help or check? I attached a sample photos, to see difference. Here is my Mozilla gfx.color profile too: https://i.ibb.co/CWRHWnh/6.jpg

Hello,

Recently I was forced to install some "stuff" on my work laptop. Unfortunately, I am not quite sure what they installed. I have contacted my IT department and all I've gotten in response is that "we haven't blocked any browser or sites."

Since this update, I find that Gmail will eventually show an error and when I go to refresh the page, the loading screen never completes. Additionally, Youtube will eventually declare that I have no connection and at that point I can no longer open new browser tabs.

I have updated Firefox, used troubleshooting mode, removed extensions, turned off ad blockers (uBlock Origin), and nothing seems to work—these issues always appear again eventually.

I would greatly prefer to not use Chrome, so if there is anything I can do to fix these issues I would be all ears to know what it is.

Thank you, John

Random videos will not load following 100.0.2 install.

These symptoms started @ May 21. (See attached file "Recently installed")

This problem is 100% reproducible at: https://www.reddit.com/r/CatastrophicFailure/

Lenovo Thinkpad x140e Windows 7 (all updates installed) Mozilla 100.2.8174

Scrolling down the Reddit page, videos will auto-play when exposed, and stop when scrolled past.

A video not loading/playing will occur on different posts/videos, but will ALWAYS occur. Once this occurs some previously exposed / played videos, when scrolling up, will play when exposed again, and some will not.

This will also randomly occur on Youtube (also observed on Twitter a few times) when multiple tabs are open. Sometimes closing other open tabs corrects the problem. Other times closing Firefox and relaunching is required and is 100% effective.

I have additional diag data / Inspector log files and page source if needed.

Thank you in advance for your help and consideration. - LudditePro

Hi, I've just spent all day trying to follow all the different suggestions here regarding these issues. Adding all sorts of things to the userChrome CSS but 95% of the suggestions have no effect at all [I'm seriously non-technical, so I have no idea if I'm doing it correctly though...probably not] The only thing that I can change is the Tab Height...nothing else changes regardless of what numbers I put in there. The only way I've been able to make the Bookmarks folders usable at all is to enable Compact mode via about:config. But that actually makes it way too compact now...from one extreme to the other. At least it's usable now...so not the end of the world, but the right click menu still has way too much space between every entry [Compact mode made no difference to that at all]. I don't know how to make a screenshot of those menus :) so I took a couple of pics of the screen...can someone please show me what to add to the CSS file to make these ridiculously big spaces between the menu items way smaller...like they used to be before this Proton came in? I tried tons of things that people said to add to the CSS to fix this menu spacing thing but none of them changed anything. I'll include the CSS file that I have below. Thanks a lot

ps: for some reason the pics always come out sideways here
