I typically have several tabs open in Firefox to quickly go from one website to the other. It seems like after a while or if I have more than a couple tabs already open, clicking on a link or choosing a bookmarked site to open a new tab does nothing. By nothing I mean the tab will open with the URL displayed, but FF is not actively trying to connect to the requested URL. The stop and refresh buttons are grayed out. My only course of action is to close that tab and try again, which typically just repeats the previous steps. It's not website dependent because once this begins happening, any attempt to open a website in a new tab hangs.

I do not remember if attempts to open new websites in existing tabs are successful as I cannot duplicate the problem right now. The only think I know that's successful it to close FF and restart it. When I close the program and reopen it, I notice quite frequently that I get a message that FF is already open so I tell it to close and reopen. Also, the last time this problem happened was a few minutes ago and I had four tabs open. I noticed that there were TEN separate processes running, all called "firefox.exe". Opening an error-free, single-tab instance of FF resulted in four separate processes running. Right now, I have two tabs open - the one in which I'm writing this question plus another, static page. This is resulting in SEVEN separate processes running!

I have not attempted to refresh FF yet as I currently don't want to hassle with all the customization I've done and most likely forgotten how to do.

I'm running Win7 Pro with 16GB. Thanks for the help!

There is no indication of progress while a webpage is downloading. I'm looking for something like the rotating hour glass, or a rotating circle of dots. Only when the process is done do we get the page's icon on the tab. As it is, I never know if my request to open a webpage is working or if the computer has locked up. It must have changed with the latest update because, although I can't remember exactly how Firefox previously indicated loading in progress, I instantly noticed the LACK of it as soon as I booted up the newest version.

Thank you.

Hi, at our workplace we use Firefox exclusively for our point-of-sale system and as such, print lots of reciepts and labels. We updated Firefox to version 82.0 this morning and now nothing prints correctly by default. When opening print preview, no matter what, it's a blank page. I have adjusted the settings in about:config, reset the print settings, messed with margins, etc. Basically every possible suggested fix for the problem I could find. After multiple hours, we still cannot get anything to print from Firefox UNLESS you go into the print settings, and click "preferences" in the Windows dialogue box (even if you don't change a single thing), only then will it work perfectly every time. This isn't an acceptable option though as we need it to work rapidly and automatically each time though the browser.

Our printer is set up correctly, up to date drivers, etc. All programs in windows will print fine, Chrome and Edge print fine, so I'm assuming it's specifically a Firefox issue. This is a receipt printer, and I noticed Firefox defaults to 8.5x11 size paper despite it using standard 73mm receipt paper. But, like I said, no matter what the preview is a blank page and that's what prints.

I'm stumped on this one. Printer is a TSP100 if that matters. Help!!

I BELIEVE, but am not certain, the above described subject and topic are instrumental to the issue I am having. I like to stream a Canadian sports site called Sporstnet Now. Up until a few weeks / months ago every time I clicked to open that site the streaming started automatically. Now that is not happening on a regular basis. Typically when I click on the website it now does not start automatically. To resolve this I can "sign out" and then sign in using my login credentials. This is obviously a time waster. Once I am signed in again, I might be able to stop the streaming and log back in automatically for the next few hours, but certainly by the next morning the streaming does not start automatically and I need to go through the login process described above. There must be a setting somewhere to allow the automatic streaming to start even if I have not visited that website in the last 2 - 3 days. Any help? suggestions? thoughts? Thank you.

The letters in words are not uniform, one side, top or bottom is dark and the other is light. It makes it very hard to read. I've tried to copy something to show but can't. Even in what I'm typing here now I can see the difference. Like the p in copy is dark on one side and the other is light. This has happened before, but I can't seem to find or remember what I was told to do to fix it. The "e" had a dark straight line and the "c" part is light Very frustrating!
