A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

I know this has come up many times before, I've read the solutions like this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1019210

But its old. There is also HSTS which Im not sure how that works and frankly, as a user I don't care.

We use internal websites on a company intranet domain. For example, a simple webpage to show the status of an application. I had to enable apache and made its config, so I know for a fact the site itself is not redirecting to https (other browsers aren't redirecting). Firefox insists on changing my address bar to https. When I use tcpdump or check the firewall, I dont even see port 80 traffic, firefox doesnt even try.

I tried the above, I also: - disabled addons (which I know dont redirect but to be sure) - erased the relevant history - deleted HSTS config file from my Mozilla profile - tried opening in a private window

The site above is an example, it happens with other sites too. Sometimes, it works for a while and then it stops. Sometimes, I find another site entry in the HSTS file, remove it and try again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm at a loss what to try next.

When I completely erase and start a new profile, without sync or addons, it might work but only for a short while. This isn't an option because literally, the only reason I still use firefox is because sync works reasonably well, across all devices, including most settings and addons.

I hope someone can help me fix this, I'd appreciate it!

Since today I see a blank page when I open firefox. Everything was working ok before. I tried to purge firefox with all data and install again but the problem persists. I also tried to use firefox 85 and 86 from the website rather than from the apt-get package but this also didn't help. The same happens in safe-mode. I can't even access preferences, passwords, and other built-in pages. Please see the screenshot attached. I'm on Ubuntu 18.04.

When I close firefox it runs in the background and I have to kill the process manually.

Not having access to passwords is by far the most frustrating part in it.

Hi friends,

I am receiving an error that firefox is out of disk space.

"firefox is running out of space"

Despite following the instructions the error still appears. I also clicked the "Got it" button in hopes that this would make the error go away, but it keeps coming back. My system has over 20gb free and I really can't see why this error is occuring.

Does anyone have any advice? (besides switching browsers)

Thanks.

I installed Lorex security cameras recently. I can access the DVR support box from Firefox and do admin stuff, but I can see no images from the cameras. Instead of images I get the message:

  Your browser does not support this function!

This appears in the sub-window that the current image should appear in. I have installed ffmpeg and gstreamer (libav, ugly and unrar) - all to no avail. I am running Fedora 33 currently patched fully (yesterday).

I find it hard to believe that these images cannot be seen in Firefox. What am I doing wrong????

Is it possible to have a default container? When I open a site in a container, if I then use the open window to go to a URL that I have not assigned a container to, i would like this new site to open in a "default" container. I believe the Facebook container works like this, it only allows Facebook related sites to be opened in that container any other sites are open in a new window/tab. An example, if i open a bank URL in a "Banking" container, log off and click on another unrelated bookmark (say Mozilla help), It would be nice if it opened in a separate container I had assigned to be the default container.

Dear community, I forgot my password for my firefox account. To sync my new laptop I need it... So I found the article, which says, I can create a recovery key and use it to keep all my settings after I changed my password. But to create a recovery key, the system asks me to fill in my old password. So I can not create a recovery key. Maybe I make a mistake somewhere on the way... Is there anybody, who can help me? Thank you very much! Petra

I know this is a longshot. I used Firefox for the last couple of years with Seagull Scientific's BarTender software on my Windows 7 pc. Now my PC was wiped out and Windows 10 as part of my company's initiative to get everyone up to Windows 10. BarTender uses a driver to talk to your print drivers and provide a status back to the BarTender server and webpage that we use. After the move to Windows 10 Firefox will not work with BarTender. It works in MS Edge and Chrome.

 I've got a ticket into Seagull Scientific and I can foresee how this will go.  They will point me back to Firefox and then I'll get pointed back to the vendor.   I know it will be hard to find someone with a similar issue.  But maybe someone had some issue with another driver, etc that stopped talking to Firefox.   
I've tried to turn off all of Firefox's protection stuff that might be interfering and still not working. 
I have used Firefox and prefer it over any others.   But I also don't like the idea of having to change browsers depending on what I'm doing.   Besides, this software I have to regularly use.   So if I can't find a solution I may have to abandon use of Firefox.

I realize Firefox is free, so I should not complain, but why oh why has Mozilla changed the Firefox print interface in Version 86? Print Preview has gone. The controls are on the wrong side. It now resembles Google Chrome, which is just horrendous! Half the options are hidden so it takes twice as long to do what one wants to do. The interface is much more clumsy. I could go on. How do I reverse this? I cannot work with it! I uninstalled v86 and installed v85, and the horrendous print layout is still there!! Thanks in advance

And why is Firefox feebback page no longer working?

Recently, I updated Firefox (as it regularly bothers me to do so) and it added an annoying new feature that appears whenever I type anything into the address bar. It used to just provide search suggestions from my list of bookmarks, but now below the list of search options is a separate segment with "This time, search with:" followed by multiple icons--in my case, Google (my default browser), bookmarks, tabs, history, and settings. And you know how when you're sometimes typing something you want to find and the desired result is toward the bottom of the list, so instead of pressing the down arrow key to get to it, you press the up arrow to start from the end…well now, when I try that on the address bar, it cycles through each icon before letting me get to the list's end.

I know it sounds like a petty complaint, but it's annoying and inconvenient to have to do it each and every time since it's habitual to cycle from top to bottom or vice versa on basically every other search bar. I went the route of "Settings > Options > Search > Search Shortcuts" to see if I could get rid of these icons, but just like how it doesn't let you get rid of search engines when you only have one on the list, it doesn't give you an option to remove these superfluous icons.

These Mozilla dumbasses seem to lack foresight and/or consideration with the way they limit user preferences. Can anybody give me any alternative solutions? Please spare me the snide answers like "switch to Chrome" (already considering it). If there's a way to simply circumvent these icons in the address bar rather than getting rid of them entirely, that would be more that enough: I just don't know how to go about it. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my submission/rant.

I find it really bad, if i post a bug and you just archive without even try to fix the problem! It makes me extremely angry! Bad behavior!

Please stop that and re-open the case.

Jan Ps. same system (Lenovo Thinkpad X300 with Xubuntu 16.04LTS 64bit (account A) )now running Firefox 85.0.1 64bit can now print, I can't find any mentioning in release notes to how previous version 75.0 and now this one is different and why this one now can print.

It would be nice to get this solved, since other people here has had this one too and it seems to jump between versions and OS(linux an windows).
