I'm trying to keep the default as links open in the same tab, rather than a new tab or new window. I've tried Search Settings<where <="" about:config.="" and="" browser.search.openintab="false" browser.tabs.loadbookmarksintabs="false" browser.urlbar.openintab="false" configuration="" gone="" i've="" into="" is:="" my="" open,="" p="" results=""></where>

Links keep opening in a new tab, and the "Open results in new tab" slider at the top of the page is always on by default (I can turn it off, but the next time I open a new tab, it's on again by default).

Thanks!

Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

I've been an avid user of Firefox Monitor for the past few months, but recently over the last few days when I go to https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard and log in, I've been struggling to find the button that allows me to add new email addresses. I've searched the support article for Monitor for this information, but to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-monitor. So I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction?

I need to transfer my FF profile from a Sony to Lenovo. The hardest challenge should be moving from a Win 7 to a Win 10, but I'm not really worried about that. The huge problem is that for almost a week FF stopped pushing web notifications of any sort of any of the platforms I've authorized. Important (?) note: randomly a couple days ago the notifications started working for no reason, I wasn't doing anything in specific, just working. I took screenshots to see if the debugging - runtime: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox#serviceworkers and saw changes here and there but nothing that could shed light as to why this happened. Example: if the notifications working were all running or stopped but saying fetching or not fetching.. there weren't coincidences that IO could find anyway. I shut down the laptop, the next day the notifications were gone again and have been gone ever since. I think yesterday or the day before I downloaded FF again and ran it, but I don't think that did anything. I didn't uninstall it, I wasn't sure if doing so could worsen the problem in such a way I wasn't gonna be able to open FF at all. I know nothing about computers, any suggestion would be appreciated. I don't dare to move nor transfer anything to the new laptop afraid to keep having the same problem or worse in there too, not to mention I'm not familiar with it so I might have an ever harder time finding a work-around that could make something that doesn't work, work. My doubt is: whatever it is that is causing this defect, if I transfer this profile to the new laptop, will it continue to happen in there as well? Is it possible it's something wrong within the profile itself and if so what can I do to transfer all this data to the new laptop? I really need his profile. Is there anything I can do to know where this problem is coming from? Am I causing the problem unwillingly, but most importantly, will this keep happening in the Lenovo? Is there any way to troubleshoot this specific issue to make sure wtv it is, won't be transferred within the profile to the new laptop so it won't fail in there as well? Please let me know if you need more information, any tips would be appreciated

Using v.80.0.1 (according to FF/Help/About) on Win10-64bit. Cannot log into godaddy.com. Error message is "Yikes! Something went wrong. Please, try again later." Works fine with Chrome, so have to believe it's in FF. Tried changing various settings in Options/Privacy& Security. Anyone else having issues, or better yet, a solution??

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

is there a way how i can let firefox open a link in new tab from command line for specified profile? Ideally in a way in which it doesn't matter, whether firefox is already running or not

I know I can do something like: firefox --new-tab 'https://www.google.com' this works no matter whether firefox is already running (just add new tab) or it's not (open firefox and add tab)

But what I want to achieve is something like this: firefox -P myProfile --new-tab 'https://www.google.com where myProfile is existing profile.

This works unless firefox is running with that profile (opens new instance). But if it's already running i get the error message (Firefox is already running but it's not responding. To use firefox you must first close the existing firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile). I tried it with/without --no-remote options but it didn't help

I want this for a script that should open pages automatically but not in the default profile. And it should be able to work even if the profile is already running.

Thanks for any advice, Jaymes

I re-installed Firefox to begin using it as my main Web Browser and the icon in the taskbar is a white sheet of paper and I'd like the Fox icon. It took me a while to configure Firefox with all my imported bookmarks, etc. so I'd like to find a fix without deleting and re-installing the software. Was thinking/hoping the icon could be copied/placed in the root directory of the software?

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.

Hi,

Im struggling like hours on getting a http connection to a private webservice of mine... Firefox always redirect me to https://example.com instead of http://example.com.

I tried following solutions: - delete whole cache - Start Firefox in Safe mode - removing all extensions - setting this in about:config:

   security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled = false
   security.certerrors.permanentOverride = false
   network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist = false
   security.enterprise_roots.enabled = true 
   browser.urlbar.autoFill to false in about:config.
   browser.cache.check_doc_frequency from 3 to 1. 
   urlbar.autofill false
   browser.urlbar.trimURLs false

- restarting firefox - restarting computer

And still this damn brower redirects me to a https site!!!!!!!!!

Searching for a solution since 4 hours. Please help me!

Greetings,

I would like to get straight to the point: I want to keep myself logged in on some sites while mantaining my settings. I want Firefox to delete my browsing history and delete all cookies and other techy stuff (apart from that what is needed in order to keep me logged in on sites like Microsoft or Learn Digital with Google) It is important for me to get my history deleted and to enjoy the feeling of launching a fresh web browser whenever I reopen my Firefox. However, looking for my phone just to log in onto certain services that use two step verification is quite annoying so I want to stay logged in there.

Have a nice day!

Hey there, I and my colleagues who use Linux have all started seeing massive performance decrease & tabs frequently reporting "a web page is slowing down your browser" issues starting around August 5 or 6 of this year. I started a complaint thread in my company slack about this on August 6, and unrelated to that, someone else started a similar thread on august 18.

At first I thought it was just me, or just some quirk of my linux distribution, or a pattern of using the software. But I actually switched Linux distros from Ubuntu to Arch to see if it would help (it didn't) and now that I've seen the behavior consistently across a whole bunch of different apps, I think it's a bug. It seems to affect heavier webapps like Quip and Slack, much more so than lighter webpages. Again, nothing was wrong before August of this year and now, depending on how I use my computer, I frequently get "a web page is slowing down your browser", cpus pegged to 100%, which ends up with me closing tabs/ sometimes restarting firefox multiple times per day.

Nobody on Chrome is complaining about similar issues.

I did run the profiler for a bit while such an issue was going on, and am happy to share it, although it has slightly-private information from one of our company slacks and I don't know if this forum is public.

Hello,

J'aime utiliser Firefox pour le développement de mes sites internet. Mais un point m'exaspère et me fait perdre beaucoup de temps. Je m'explique.

Lorsque j'apporte des modifications CSS, parfois ceux-ci ne s'actualisent pas lorsque je refresh la page. Il me faut régulièrement aller vider le cache. Et même parfois cela ne suffit pas et je dois systématiquement continuer à travailler sur chrome car je ne trouve pas la solution pour refresh mes modifs sur firefox. Volontiers un petit tips qui pourrait résoudre mon problème.. ? Merci et bonne journée.
