I am on a metered/limited phone hotspot connection most of the time. When Firefox indicates there is a new update available, I need to know how much data transfer it requires. If an update is large, I need to take my laptop to a free WiFi location. Thanks

Hello! I am using firefox on windows10 I am facing problems with my firefox browser, some buttons are not responding where as the same buttons in site work well and good in chromium based ones. This is my first problem

My second problem is that I uninstall firefox completely and install again. I am getting a welcome window saying "Firefox has been installed before. Let's get a new copy". Please help me get an experience as if i am installing firefox for the first ever time on my machine.

Please address them both

Hey,

on one of my notebooks (Thinkpad E495) FF occasionally crashes. This started happening a few months ago. Before I've been using FF on the same machine for years without any issues. It's pretty random but usually happens at least once a day, usually shortly after startup or wakeup from hibernate mode. A while ago it used to even crash back to back twice in a row meaning after I reopened it, it immediately closed again and only worked after I selected to restore the previous session after the 2nd reopen. Nothing is registered under about:crashes and I don't see any errors in the system event log.

I already tried to disable hardware acceleration and reinstalled FF completely without any addons besides a different adblocker. I cannot really reproduce the crash in safe-mode but don't really want to browse the web for possibly hours without an adblocker.

Any ideas what this could be or what else I could try? Maybe downgrade to a previous version?

Hi, I try to orginize my bookmar sidebar. I have "Other bookmarks" folder in the bottom, and try to drag it to top, but firefox creates a copy of folder instead of moving it. Also, I erroneously drag "Bookmark menu" and firefox create a copy of it inside "Other bookmarks" folder. It looks like cycle reference - when I click on "Bookmark menu" inside "Other bookmarks" I any time see again "Other bookmarks" and "Bookmark menu" inside it. Looks like nightmare! How can I fix it? please help!

I can not fix it. There is no possibility to switch it on in the options -> home settings.

There is not any checkbox for "recommended articles by pocket" any more.

How can I fix this?

I've been using firefox since it's early release. My PC is set up as a DAW and I have more audio cards and usb connection that routes audio around. Now I can have my main DAW software running on my monitors via ASIO, In windows I set the it to my secondary driver. Now can open firefox, go to youtube and sound from the browser goes there. I can start the DAW and have sounds there. It worked perfectly.

But now suddenly no sound in Firefox. I just starts, no errors or anything, but no sound. I had a look a some of the FAQ's but nothing changed. Reinstall etc. Well short story, Edge works, so now firefox sadly have to go.

Thx for the good work. This is very good browser, but it don't work for me.

I recently upgraded from a Dell XPS laptop to a Dell XPS Inspiron laptop and had my old laptop cloned to the new one. There's been only one change noted when using the new laptop -- whenever I have Firefox open, and want to print the page displayed, the File menu no longer offers the option "Print Preview", which I used all the time on my old laptop. Any idea why it's disappeared, and how to get it back? Thanks.

With Firefox 86.0.

In the preference page (about:preferences) we can specify default fonts, but the choices of fonts are not used when printing a web page if the page does not specify a font. (In my environment, although the default font is set to sans-serif, the serif font is used for printed pages.) Can we specify default fonts for printing? If not, I strongly think that Firefox should use the same font as the one for display (as long as the font is available for printing).

I cannot seem to retrieve any of my Firefox data. My bookmarks, plugins, login and password data are just gone. Years of data are gone. There is no "old profile data" and oddly enough none of the profiles have anything in them anyways. I have tried everything suggested and NOTHING has worked. Most people have no clue about the files and folders and definitely shouldn't be moving stuff around as most of the threads have suggested. What is a key3 or 4 file? Why should I have to move it? Where does one move it to? None of the threads on this topic are helpful and there's no way to just ask a person who works here? Considering this seems to happen to a lot of people it should be made much easier to do. I can't even import my old logins from Safari. Is years of my data just gone? If Im signed into my Firefox account shouldn't it be there, or what is the point of having one? I need a very easy solution to this extremely frustrating issue.

I just tried to print a list for the browser on Firefox and the new print options are useless. I use to be able to simplify, change background and have more options. This looks like the printing options on Microsoft Edge. I started using Firefox to get away from that. I mean if your going to mimic edge then why not use that browser instead??? Stop changing things. You update every 5 minutes and then it crashes, is to slow or just doesn't work. Slow the hell down and remember people like Firefox because it isn't like the big companies out there. It's a good browser. Leave it alone.

Menus do not appear, or are not clickable. tick boxes cannot be ticked, graphics are broken, logos do not appear correctly. I deleted and re-installed. restarted and nothing works....not a virus issue and have not done any update. I'm attaching a menu where the graphics (text boxes are gone), the amazon home page where the name on the logo is missing and a search engine bar that looks broken. Photos that are supposed to be cropped do not appear cropped anymore...etc. I'm trying to click on the box further down that allows me to be notified when someone answers the thread and cannot tick the box.
