Firstly, Firefox made me log in to every social media site again. Normally I log in automatically. Facebook and messenger - I use the same passwords that work on Chrome and my phone but on Firefox it says the passwords are expired. I had to change my passwords because ONLY Firefox wouldn't let me log in.

Hi,

I was previously using Windows 11 with Firefox, and changed back to Windows 10 as W11 has way too many issues on lot of points. But there was one thing I liked in Firefox on W11 is the scroll bars. They were narrow and discreete, and expanded when I hover with the mouse. I prefer that over the wide and very flat Windows 10 bar.

Is there a way to get this new bar on Windows 10 ?

Thanks in advance for your help, have a great day.

The password manaer and autofill works just fine. but every damn time I try to log into anything I have to do the F-ing two factor authentication everytime. I'm so sick of it. It even does that even though I selected "trust this browser or device or whatever". I hate 2FA I dont care how secure it is its a pain in the ass!!!

Hi,

I'm trying to access my Apple ID (appleid.apple.com). When I select "Sign In" the page hangs and never displays the fields to enter my user name and password. The message I get is "This action could not be completed because of an error. Try again or check back later."

Under Settings > General > Network Settings I selected No proxy and I disabled DNS over HTTPS. But neither of these actions made a difference.

Eventually, I had to use Microsoft Edge to access my account.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi! I have set this option pdfjs.externalLinkTarget to 2, but despite that setup, all PDFs are open in the same tab of the PDF download link, that's a problem for me because, for instance, my home banking account losses the session if anything external is loaded, so when I click Firefox back arrow, the home banking session expires.

How can I set to open PDFs in Firefox in new tab?

Thanks!

hi,

i'm using FF (version 98 at the moment) to print local files. It is key to me to edit header and footer for each print! the only solution i found so far to edit them at all, is to go to about:config and for example search for print.print_headerleft. Besides that is not usable at all, it simply doesn't work! The header and footer remain the same. Please tell me how can i change header and footer?

If you delete the, in my opinion much better "page setup", why don't you include all it's funktions in the new print dialog?

another problem is the size of the new print preview! it's much to small! make it resizeable please.

Or just give us back the "page setup". That would be a big advantage over chrome and edge, which suffer the same printing problems.

Thanks

I use to click on PDF files and they would open and not download to my download folder. Well now every time i click on a PDF file it downloads it. I have tried every option in settings/general/apps and they still download in a folder. So I thought I would try MS edge and it does the same thing. Is it not the browser and was it in a MS update? It has never done this before. I don't want all these PDF files downloaded!

new firefox user trying to migrate from chrome i want to bookmark my trello board but it is not using the right icon. it is using the generic trello icon instead of the one that is actually visible when i have them open. i use 3 different trello boards and need all 3 to be distinguishable only by the icon so this is a critical feature for me to be able to use this browser. this problem doesn't happen in chrome which i have been using. i have tried many extensions to try to locate the image that is actually being used, it doesn't work. i can't find the image being downloaded. how do i get the same icon that is showing in the tab to show up in the bookmarks bar?

I used to be able to use firefox to order groceries on instacart with no errors or performance issues. Since the end of March, I cannot use the site without interminable errors and slow operation. Error 1727 seems to pop up a lot. I have tried clearing cache and cookies with no improvement.

This is my favorite browser by far, I am willing to pay to use it, but need the old reliable versions of Firefox back!

Today I had to use edge to get my order placed.  :(
