So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

Hi - The last 2-3 Mac OS versions of FF (85.0.2, 86.0) are not allowing me to open Firefox>Preferences from the Firefox menu, the dashboard icon, or using Command-,

I'm only able to open the Preferences window by typing about:preferences in the address bar. If I keep a Preferences tab available, I'm able to navigate to that window using the aforementioned methods.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

I have the following simple script in ann html-document within a nested frameset:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript"> </script>

The script is activated by the "onload" function in the body. This works flawlessly in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari and Opera, bit not in Firefox (latest version).

Anyone any idea how to get it working in Firefox?

Can anyone help. I have just set up a new Firefox account. I tried to enter two different secondary email addresses, but both are already in use.

I am sure I had a Firefox account many years ago and this is the problem. How can I delete the old account without knowing the main email address so I can use those email addresses again?

Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

Two-sided printing rotating on wrong axis

How can I set two-sided printing to rotate on the long axis (so both sides are printed in the same direction, and when you turn the page you can keep reading easily)? With the new upgrade it keeps defaulting to printing on the short axis (so the second side is printed upside down) which makes it very difficult to read smoothly. This has always been easy to set previously. Now the Print menu only allows you to toggle Two-Sided Printing on and off, not to choose the axis. The system dialog does include this setting, in theory, but it doesn't work. I have tried changing it to Long-Edge Binding several times. Each time I change the setting and print immediately, and it still prints with Short-Edge Binding which I do not want. Help! If this can't be fixed I will need to stop using two-sided printing entirely, which will mean wasting a lot of paper.

I'm surprised that a community-based web developer would flood its users with constant messages. I'm referring to when I open Firefox for Windows, and constantly receive message banners at the bottom of the browser. You'd half expect it from a commercial web developer, but even they refrain from doing that.

Please stop this practice as it's very annoying and distracting. Perhaps a menu option for "Suggestions" where the user may opt to view such messages is a better idea than thrusting them constantly on the user.

In better news, I've noticed Firefox is a faster, less clunky browser than it has been in the past - good work :)

Dear Firefox Team, Just now, when I opened a new tab, there was a survey that asked a few question and for answering that, they offered a iPphone Pro. I know it is absurd, but i would like to know if FF carries our surveys in other countries.

Please advice

Thank you in anticipation.

Hello

My website sends the following HTTP response header: ``` Link: </static/js/main.js>; rel=preload; as=script ``` And within the HTML, just before the body close, I have this: ``` <script src="/static/js/main.js"></script> ``` This causes the script to be loaded twice (in Firefox 85), consuming twice the bandwidth.

I also confirm that by setting `network.preload` to `false` in `about:config` I only get 1 request instead of 2.

Is there a solution to this? I obviously want to preload and only get 1 request.
