After updating to V 100.0.1 I have discovered that I am unable to post to 2 different message boards that I had no issues with before. Is there some parameter that has changed that is prohibiting me from uploading text and/or images? I am having no problem if I use Microsoft Edge but I much prefer working with Firefox.

Starting last night Firefox will not let me download anything. If I click on a download link, my Mac toolbar goes gray like normal, but no download dialog box ever appears. I have confirmed the dialog box isn't hiding behind any open windows on my desktop, and I have tried rebooting my system with no change.

Please help me fix this.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/permission-request-messages-firefox-extensions?as=u&utm_source=inproduct The long list of permissions here seem incredibly excessive, completely irrelevant to the task and therefore an invasion of privacy. Some examples: ''Extend developer tools to access your data in open tabs "Download files and read and modify the browser’s download history" "Open files downloaded to your computer" "Read the text of all open tabs" "Access recently closed tabs" "Access your location" "Access browsing history" "Monitor extension usage and manage themes" "Exchange messages with programs other than Firefox" "Read and modify privacy settings" "Control browser proxy settings" "Store unlimited amount of client-side data" Seriously? All I want the browser to do is search for an image, not hand over all my personal information to you. You can't find an image without checking where I am, what else I've been doing, modifying my privacy and browser proxy settings, storing unlimited data, reading everything on my open and recently closed tabs? Is this to be used for commercial purposes? What's going on here? I think it's time to find a new browser. Please explain.

Google searches are occasionally freezing up Firefox and not processing. I'll type in my search, push enter and suddenly my entire desktop will hang, mouse will move slowly and jerk around before regaining full control. Once control is regained, Firefox will no longer respond and must be force closed and relaunched.

It's getting exhausting to the point I've used Edge for searches just to not be bothered.

Let me know what information I can provide to make diagnosis easier. I understand intermittent issues are rough to troubleshoot.

I have the Download setting set to "Always ask you where to save files" and PDF handling set to to "Open in Firefox" if I now click on the download button in the opened PDF it automatically saves to the Download folder without asking, which is never what I want. If I set PDF handling to always ask, and open in Firefox from the dialog and press on the save button then I get asked where to save. This seems like a bug to me, as it is very surprising behaviour. Is there some way to always open the PDF in firefox but get asked where to save the pdf when pressing the download button in the PDF viewer?

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?

I am looking for suggestions/work flows for migrating existing Mac's from the standard firefox release to the ESR version. I am looking to manage these all under 1 update cycle. A couple of current problems:

  1. On a system with the standard version already installed, I can't find a way to upgrade to the ESR version without uninstalling first.
  2. Once I would do an uninstall and then an install of the new version, I am prompted that I have launched an older version of Firefox and that I must create a new profile. How can I do this without loosing all users bookmarks, extensions, etc?

Thanks!

Firefox 100

Have you noticed this? It's been annoying me for quite some time, so I finally googled for a possible solution to the problem, and found this thread

What's up with some YouTube videos not showing the date it was uploaded?

It turns out that the user must zoom out the page until the date emerges, right where it is supposed to be. Apparently, not necessarily the same for everybody. In my case, from 100% to 80%.

But I still don't think there is a consensus whether the cause it is the website, the browser, or both. Nor is there a suggested fix except for this workaround.

Find the "switch" that gets "activated" (when using ANY private browser window) that prevents us from using "printscreen" AND...ALL other "printsreen apps" as well (such as "windows snipping tool"). After using ANY private browser, Printscreen just shows an all black screen! Once you've used a private browser window (on a Win 7 desktop)...you no longer have any printscreen ability until after you power-cycle...when it's too late!! Printscreen ALWAYS shows an all black screen!

Try it for yourself on YOUR desktop...regardless of your system!

Hello team,

I'm not sure what happened, but I was not able to open Firefox after restarting my PC. I currently run Windows 11 on a fully upgraded rig.

Up until today, I have been trouble free. Error 1: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I tried several options - and have been googling/trying several steps for a couple of hours (after each step, I restarted the PC):

1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Attempted to use Command Lines to open Firefox https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/CommandLineOptions 3. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile - when I did this the new profile would not display in the Profile Manager, but it would display in the Profiles folder under Appdata [I tried this multiple times] 4. Deleted the profiles.ini file

After deleting the .ini file Error 2: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." 1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile. After following the Profile Wizard, another error pops up: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved."

I am completely stumped. I hope you can help, Sean
