Over the last few weeks Firefox is not printing statements correctly from my online bank. Other browsers e.g. Safari, Microsoft Edge are working fine. I have Firefox on a MacBookPro (El Capitan) and a PC (Windows 10) and both have exactly the same problem. The image is far too large for the page and much text is lost. Switching to landscape doesn't help. It appears that something has changed in Firefox recently which is causing this. Thanks

Since installing Big Sur on my iMac I, when I click on a url in a Apple Mail email I get the "profile not accessible" message. If Firefox happens to be running when I click on the link it will work.

I've tried all of the suggestions for fixing this issue to no avail.

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem with Big Sur?

Take a look at the attachment, and you'll see a ? charactrer in the place of an " character. I see this happening with many different websites, but only in Firefox for some reason. Often times, firefox shows an entire block of text replaced with question marks, and then it snaps back with maybe just a few showing. I run Apple 10.15.6 Catalina. This may be a system issue on my end, but I was wondering if anyone has any clue as to why it does this, and how to correct it. Don't have this issue with any other browsers, and my firefoz is up to date, running 81.0 I think. Says it is up to date.

Hello,

I've saved my bookmarks by using Export bookmarks to HTML". But the "tags" and "keywords" fields are not listed on the created page.

How do i save tags and keywords?

Related question: I'm using a Mac... where are the tags and keywords stored? Is that in /Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/(profile name)/bookmarkbackups/bookmarks-(date)(hash)==.jsonlz4 ? How would i read that and be able to utilize the tags and keywords from there?

Thank you for any clues.

When I print the resulting web page in Chrome, it maintains the scroll position of the inner div. But when I do the same in Firefox, it always scrolls the inner div to the top.

Is this an issue with Firefox? Is there a way for me to maintain the scroll position?

I have an older addon that was disabled. it's no longer supported and won't be updated. I'd like to reenable it anyway. I'm well aware of the general "risks" involved and prefer to have use to my tools.

"Download has been disabled due to security or stability issues." The best I can see is that the inclusion of optional search bar changes is the culprit. I'd be more aware however the admin on the report has hidden the comments and the bug-report is a bit lacking.

I would prefer not to turn off all add-on verification unless I absolutely must. But that's the point I've now reached. I'm using FireFox 82.0b3 on MacOS 11 Thanks.

I live in a non English speaking country and I do not speak the language (let's call that Language A) of this country as well. I would like to use Firefox in English and to some extend I can. On the language settings, I am not able to delete the Language A from the settings. I tried so many different ways but I was not able to solve the problem. For example, when I want to print something or save the website, the notification changes to Language A. Majority of the time I can use Firefox in English. How can I delete Language A form the language setting?

Can I export only specified bookmarks, or a specific bookmark folder, or is it all or nothing? If I export the whole thing to a .json file or to an HTML file, can I then import only selected bookmarks. (I want to copy a bookmark folder from one Mac to another. Different OS versions, same Firefox versions.)

Thanks, Wimsey
