At 93, I need extra help. I lke and have used Firefox as my default browser fo a long time. Accepting your uopdate has caused problems for me. I will arrange a house call for technical repair, but hevwill need some help. I am thinking that it is probably best to delete the Firefox programming and download again.

I searched an address and Google Maps gives an (accurate) estimated travel time to that address. Within Settings>Locations they are not listed as having permission to use location data and when they requested location data, I selected not to share.

Is there a way to specifically block a website from accessing location data? Is there a way to report suspisious activity from a website?

Thanks!

How do I restore the "Print Preview" option to the latest version of Firefox? Not just the old print dialog, which is still useless because it doesn't have any print preview option. I need the actual separate "Print Preview" that lets you see the full layout before printing. I've had to revert to an older version of Firefox because the old instructions for changing settings in about:config do NOT work with the latest update.

@Mozilla: Some of us need to see the print layout FULL SIZE on the ENTIRE SCREEN for printing certain important documents. The latest print box only shows a tiny print preview that is completely useless; it also looks like the one Chrome started using years earlier, so I don't know why you would introduce a feature similar to a competitor when your marketing aims to distinguish your product as different and better.

Since probably FF94, i can't remove single page windows (like popup) by turning them into a tab anymore.

Before when a popup window appeared i moved it to the already opened main window to turn it into tab to not have ton of "recently closed windows". But since FF94, when i move a window, instead of disappear after become a tab, firefox only duplicate the webpage (i have the new tab and the identical webpage window). Until now the only way i have to remove the annoying windows is to kill firefox app with windows task manager and uncheck them in the tab recovery.

How i can have firefox able to really move windows into tab like before instead of copy them? Or have a way to permanently delete unwanted windows i don't use anymore in the "recently closed windows" list without killing the task.

Also moving tab from a firefox window to another work normally (no duplicate), the problem occurs only when FF windows has a single tab.

I updated to the latest version yesterday and now my Bookmarks ,History and a few other things have gone into Dark Mode. I really don't care for it and have tried looking into my settings but I see nothing that I can do to go back to the normal white. I am using Windows 11 on an HP All In One Desktop computer. Is there anything I can do to revert back to the way it was? Thanks for any reply.

2 issues. 1) Have used Firefox for years on Windows 10 on a laptop. For the last 2 months I have had great difficulty signing in to do online banking with Bank of Montreal (BMO). I get a lot of 404 error messages. Clearing the cache and history works occasionally, but not consistently. I do not have this problem when I use Chrome and I do not have this problem with any other site. This is really frustrating and inconvenient because it is so inconsistent and yet so important. 2) For the last month, every time I start Firefox I get a message telling me Firefox was unable to find previous settings and I have to select 'Start new Session' as it seems unable to restore itself otherwise. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I'm running 96.0.3 on a fully patched Win 10 Pro system - both O/S and programs. When Firefox is running I'm getting these pop-up error messages randomly with changing content. They stay on screen for some seconds and then go away. Message states it's from (via) 5.back2yard.biz. I put that in my hosts file and I'm still getting them. My network is a cable modem hooked to Xfinity and then cable connected to another fully newer patched router. All addresses are 10. range. I ran both a Malwarebytes scan and a Windows Security scan - both are clean.

I'm unable to upload a small image after a hour so I'll give up on that right now.

I need to re-post this question as, although it has been asked previously, that session is now closed. It only started happening recently, but I'm not sure whether to blame the latest FireFox version, 96, or Windows 10, 21H2. I also run Avast and MalwareBytes AVs.

Not sure where this fits in so I started here. I have been running firefox for a very long time. For my home page, I am using Protopage. I have my google calendar as one of the widgets on the page. I have it set up correctly. It was showing up yesterday. Now today it is not showing. I am getting this error:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page

To protect your security, accounts.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

I have not made any changes to Protopage or Firefox.

Got any ideas what has changed? What I need to fix to get it working again?

I've been attempting to snyc my desktop PC Firefox with my laptop Firefox. In the process, I'm able to log into my account on the PC, but none of the saved passwords I have for my account work. I am not able to see the current password on my PC account and am not able to change it without losing my data. In attempting to change the password, I used the Recovery Key which I had save some time ago but find that it is expired. In clinking on the options to generate a new key from within my account, nothing happens. How can I find or change the original account password and or generate a new recovery key after removing the old one? My primary desktop PC poses no problem in terms of access to my data etc. I am not able to see the password and consequently I am not able to sync my laptop without it.

My POS system is set to open in firefox as defult page. So it would be nice if I could open it in full screen by default.

So Can I know, Is there any way to make the firefox window open in full screen by default?

I know that Firefox can expand to fill my entire screen with its Full Screen feature by togglling Full Screen keyboard shortcut of F11 key. But just I want to enable that feature by default.

Any suggestions on how to revert to full screen by default would be greatly appreciate.

Thanks in advance.

Until the recent update I never had trouble restoring tabs after closing Firefox. My Preferences (called Settings now ?) are checked to open previous windows and tabs.

I looked at help on this topic, at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-restore-my-tabs-last-time but the instructions would not work.

When I went to the menu/history, the Recently closed tabs option was grayed out and there is no entry for Restore previous session.

Is this a change in the latest version or a bug of some kind? Thanks.

As of the latest update 96.0.3 (64-bit), our entire team has been experiencing an issue where when we access our client's portals, a file that is stored and accessible for download automatically pop-ups to be opened/saved. This happens throughout the portal as we navigate to other pages as well. It is a PDF file and this occurs on any of our client portals. We are not sure what is triggering the pop-up to download/save the file without actually clicking on the link where the file exists. Any help is appreciated.
