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 am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit)

I just installed it on a new laptop. It was working fine.

I then changed to the profile from my old laptop. It works fine but many images now have glitter; not all over, but as if the image creator has pained this on in odd areas. For example a winter scene has a landscape of a man climbing a mountain and the man is covered by glitter.

I can't work out why this has started happening or how to prevent it. It's intrusive and hurts my eyes.

The web pages of https://www.heise.de serve as an example of the error. The publisher's main page shows the article images, while the article itself is without an image. In other browsers, Chrome and Opera, the images are visible in the articles. The error has been occurring for a few days, the time cannot be specified exactly. I have already turned off the ad blocker for heise.de without success. An update to FF86 was unsuccessful. A check of the FF settings did not bring any results either. Websites from other publishers e.g. www.techstage.de are not affected as far as I know.

In addition, the title bar always shows the context Login, although I am logged in. On some websites, e.g. http://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de, the login generates an error.

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

In Options, the following selection item is included under General>>>Tabs:

"When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately"

Although it has worked well in the past, selection of that option no longer seems to have an effect on new tab behavior. New tabs are thrust into the foreground regardless of whether or not the option is selected in Options.

Is this a flaw in the latest update to Firefox? Will it be corrected soon?

I have 100s of profiles that i need to move to a new computer but the names of the profiles are not .default (see attached screenshot named "Profile names on old computer") - they appear instead to be what i named the profiles.

And when I do move them to the Profile Directory, they aren't recognized in Profile Manager, I assume because they don't end in .default (see screenshot named "Profiles on New Computer" and screenshot "New computer's Profile Manager").

But on my old Macbook, they are recognized just fine. What am I missing or doing wrong?

Thank you
