Previously, when I printed something from the internet, the current date always printed at the bottom of the page, which is what I wanted. That way I knew when I printed it for future use. Now, I can't get the date to print on anything from the internet. I'm using the same Epson WF2860 printer so nothing has changed with it. Can someone help me?

I would really like a feature where I can highlight content within PDFs like in Edge. It's really helpful because I usually store PDFs temporarily, and it doesn't make enough sense to download each and every PDF I have to work with. The 'draw' tool isn't particularly helpful when you're working on a Mac 24/7 with no other devices except an iPhone. I've attempted using Yawas, but it doesn't work in the native PDF viewer because it isn't a website!

Please help...

hey, on websites like tumblr, hyperbeam, and other sites with video embeds or streaming, i keep having problems with the videos stuttering in one place and i usually have to refresh for it to fix. i don't have any extensions that interact with videos other than i guess ublock, and it only happens on sites where i do NOT get ads with videos. here's a gif of the glitch:

I switched from windows 10 to 11 and to a new laptop. Here in my new laptop Asus tuf 15 ,even though it has better RAM , internet connection, cache memory, cores the FIREFOX doesnot function properly. It's extremly laggy specially when I use YOURUBE . In my earlier HP laptop with 8 GB ram I could use 10-15 tabs at one time .It would still not lag . It could do web development at the same time I could watch youtube tutorials. But now I barely open 4-5 tabs the youtube starts freezing up to the extent that I really get frustrated. Please so something or I will have to switch to BRAVE browser or something.

I'm using 121.0 for Manjaro

Today, I had a problem trying to re-load a website I had saved just the other day. I have a bunch of such websites for a technical project I am working on.

I tried loading the other saved web-sites. All had been saved as a complete file and by this browser. I have no other browser installed.

The problem was that the saved web-page kept re-loading. No forum-discussion could be found so the trouble-shooting option was entered into.

I opened Firefox in safe-mode (via the command-line call). Running a suggestion; clearing cache didn't resolve the problem (in safe-mode the saved web-page still kept re-loading with a rapid cycle)

The next "suggestion" I tried was refresh Firefox. Firefox advised that none of my saved data and settings would be lost. Well, my entire profile is gone!!! Thankfully synchronizing worked such that I could recover passwords, history etc. What are NOT recovered are the settings for websites, probably other infos too.

I have two login-accounts on my system and I have a shared, common profile for both. This was using a public folder with access rights only for those two users.

I have been using that profile architecture for months. This is now gone!! Those folders do not exist anymore. In its place are entirely new folders, their formats completely unfamiliar to me. I am recalling my latest backup but will it be of any use???

Many thanks, indeed.

Until the most recent update, which came along with a Microsoft update, I was able to stream Peacock.com but now I'm getting an error message that my system configuration isn't compatible with Peacock. I have also had issues with YouTube, which keeps telling me that I have to disable adblockers - which I'm not running. I had another unrelated problem that I fixed by doing a system restore to before the Microsoft update, so there should be no issues with that end of things. It has to be Firefox because I can still stream Peacock on Microsoft Edge.

So, does ANYONE have any idea how I can fix this problem? I much prefer using Firefox to Edge and I don't use Chrome.

Thanks.

How most of the the "serious" articles of those recommended come from moderately left to very left sources. The well-intentioned but hopelessly misguided (and often destructive) selections from the NYT, Atlantic, Vox, New Yorker, etc. are of little little interest or use to me. Please consider articles and opinion pieces from the WSJ. American Spectator, NR, etc. as well. You might just increase revenue and profit. Thanks! Ted Alpert

THIS BUSINESS OF UPDATE AND BING HERE IS ANOTHER UPDATE AND CONSTANTLY BEING PLAGUED TO UPDATE FIREFOX. YOU COULD PUT ALL YOUR UPDATE IN ONE UPDATE. YOU COULD SPEND A LITTLE TIME AND TAKE THE BLOAT OUT OF FIREFOX. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO SO BIG. IT DOES NOT NEED TO COVET ALL THE RAM.

Long time Firefox user. Had automatic update to version 121.0 on 12/19. Shut down that night. Next morning (12/20) Firefox opened as if it was a totally new installation - no bookmarks, extensions, etc. Downloaded 121.0 64 bit version; uninstalled Firefox; reinstalled it with downloaded version - same issue. Replaced profile with backup copy from 12/17. Firefox started properly with all bookmarks, extensions and other settings.

Shut down on 12/20. When computer was started this morning (12/21) and Firefox opened - same issue - presented with brand new never before opened Firefox. Shut down Firefox, copied over 12/17 profile, restarted and all bookmarks, etc. were there. Restarted Firefox using about:restartrequired and everything was still as expected.

Windows 10 is up-to-date. No updates found for extensions.

Thoughts on what might be corrupting the profile or what steps I can take? I have 25 enabled extensions. Since a restart didn't revert me to the brand new never opened presentation, activating them one at a time doesn't seem to be a worthwhile approach.
