is there someone who can answer a simple question that I know other people are having? Why is it impossible to print an article from the internet? When I hit print, "print preview" comes on and the little spinning doohickie just goes round and round. Is there no one who can tell us how to stop this and print a simple article? It's like Biden, it just spins and spins and does nothing.

I write in Scrivener and copy/paste into Google Docs for editing. In every other browser, this is no problem. In Firefox, my formatting (mostly italics) is lost when I paste. I've tried messing with the paste commands and had no luck at all. I tried copying from Microsoft Word to see if the problem was on the Scrivener end, but the same problem occurs. I need to open Chrome to paste my text into Google Docs, which keeps the formatting, in order to work around this problem. Does anyone know why this is?

The problem that Google Maps goes black after a few seconds was reported here a couple of times.

I have a variation of the problem in that it appears only when I connect my laptop (Lenovo P15 with Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000) to an external monitor. After connecting, the only way to get Google Maps to work again is to close Firefox and restart it. Closing and reopening the tab or force-reloading is not sufficient.

I have two idle tabs (no videos or other active components) open and according to Task Manager on my PC, it says Firefox is using 6 GB of memory. Unfathomably high number.

The Firefox Process Manager says the GPU (whatever that is) is using 5 GB of memory.

I did all the usual quick fixes (Restart, update, restart PC, refresh, disable add ons, etc.)

Please help. Why is 2 tabs none of which is a video tab using 6 GB of memory?

Backup/Exported Bookmarks files (.json/.html) aren't the same (checksum) between Synced devices

Hi, thanks a lot in advance and sorry to bother. :)

I have a couple of desktop/laptop devices synced with the same account. When I make a backup/export of my bookmarks in each device (.json/.html files) the checksums of those files don't coincide between devices. Nevertheless, if I open the exported HTMLs in Firefox and save them as Text Files, the resultant files have all the same checksum (sha256sum), i.e., are all the same.

Is this how it is supposed to be? Or should my bookmarks JSON/HTML files be exactly the same in all devices and something is wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.

I lost my tabs from the previous section again. I've read many solutions but still can't figure it out. It's not as simple as restore since not there and not even greyed out. I've gone into the file and tried to tweak it. I really like to know a simple way to find out especially where it says my information may be synced with other devices and I'm not sure how to even check that because when I went to look it wasn't clear to me either. I'd like to know how to restore my previous session and if I can't I would like to at least know that I'm synced to other devices and how to find the information there and how to restore it again when it happens the next time since it's happened to me so many times over the years

I want my banking to remember my computer when I log in. Every time I log in and a code is sent to me it asked if I want them to remember my computer. I click yes. However, when I log in again, it has not retained my computer. I do, however, want to log in each time.

Also, there are sites when I click on them, such as Facebook or AOL I have to enter my user name and password. I used to be able to click the icon and it take me right there without asking for user and password.

Thanks,

Joan Florence

Please, give us a way not to save files that I just want to open.

For instance, I open a PDF to read it. If I want to save it, I'm able to save it myself.

Now I need to check and delete many files that are in my Downloads folder, which is a huge waste of time.

Thank you for considering my opinion.

Regards

John

When I go to YouTube channels I have saved, I usually click "videos" and it goes right to the videos and the latest ones are shown first with 3 across.

Now when I go to my saved channels, there are only 2 rows, not 3. When I click on "videos" it shows older videos and not very many. I have to click on "live" to get the rest of the videos to show including the latest ones.

I have no idea how to get it to go back. As far as I know, I haven't changed any settings. I really hate the new view and only seeing older videos and only a handful at that.

If it wasn't for the extension YouTube Watchmarker, I would probably only use Safari. I love being able to see which videos I have already watched via this extension. It's a big help.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I added an Add-On to try it called [by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox] Notes by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox which I have since removed as the Add-On has corrupted my Bookmarks. When I click 'Show Sidebars' my Bookmarks don't show (thought they are there) but it's as though the font is white making it impossible to see them.

If I click Bookmarks I can see them and/or when I click on Manage Bookmarks that option opens and I can see all my Bookmarks. This only happened after I added "Notes by Firefox by Mozilla Firefox" Add-On. I was thinking there could be possibility it could have been caused by changing the appearance to Dark Mode, (for example Facebook or Twitter, etc).

There must be a better fix then to refresh / restore Firefox to its default settings as I have about 90 Tabs Open

I recently joined some hideous dating sites and then decided very quickly they were not for me - I deleted my accounts - yet these hideous sites keep opening up tabs on my Firefox by themselves - advertising their sites. They just don't want to let you go after they get your information and are super aggressive about their lame products. I have emailed them - spoken to them on the phone - deleted them manually from my browser history - have listed them in the Firefox BLOCK section (Privacy and Security) - and yet these God damn sites keep opening. So I am assuming adware infection (although I have no idea?) I am not a computer wiz - I work on the computer and know my programs but do not know much about how the computer functions. Does anyone have an answer on how I can PERMANENTLY eliminate these horrible sites forever. I just want them gone - gone - gone - they are annoying and time consuming to keep deleting!!! I have used Firefox for a zillion years and have always liked it - but if I can't get rid of these insidious sites - I will be forced to change my browser to one that actually protects my machine after I use their system tell it to do so! Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks so much - appreciate any help on this!

my gmail account and it's corresponding mail that I have linked to my firefox account is currently overflown with data. due to my place of residence Im locked from purchasing additional data for that account's google disk, and therefore can not receive any emails. If possible, I would like to verify my account by any other means, or use any other of my mail addresses to receive verification email to my account. To add to the context the whole problem occured after I reinstalled my OS on my PC. I synced my account, saved what data I remembered to, but forgot about my linked mail inability to, well, receive emails. Any help would be really appreciated

I am using pihole and i've learned that firefox ignores it.

Supposedly, because it has DNS OVER HTTPS enabled by default.

So i disabled it, and it still doesn't work ( ignores DNS settings and loads websites that are blacklisted in my pihole - only firefox does this, chrome and edge dont have this problem )

I've set it to my pihole server - and it still works.

I've set it to CUSTOM and put in a 0.0.0.0 as IP and IT STILL WORKS

how???

i am just trying to use pihole but i can't comprehend why would a browser ignore all these settings ...

how do i make it work?

thanks.
