On Startup: - "Open previous windows and tabs." Yes, I have this checked, but it ain't actually doing it. What's the solution?

True or False? If this box is checked I can quit Firefox altogether which tabs still open, and those same tabs will automatically load again upon reopening Firefox.

Firefox downoading files instead of printing

I hope this is the right category. I recently switched to Firefox, and while I love both the customization aspect and how privacy-centered it is, I have 1 small thing that is bugging me a lot: printing. I'm on an M1 Macbook Air, and when I do Command+P (which is the default printing command for OSX), it downloads the file I'm attempting to print instead of sending it to preview instead of printing. I have changed the "Applications" setting so it says "Open in Preview" where I can print it from. However, it still downloads the file along with printing it. I have tried doing "Open in Firefox", and it has the same affect where it both prints the document but also downloads this. What can I do to change this, if anything? Thank you!

I have three Firefox profiles: A, B, and C. I tried to give them all different themes. A has a red theme and keeps it consistently. B, my default profile, should have a green theme, and C should have a black theme. However, when I change B's theme to green, the theme on C also changes to green, and when I change the theme on C to black, the theme for B also changes to black. I don't know what I did differently for A! How can I make my profile themes stick for B and C?

Since the new Firefox browser print system dialog was introduced, replacing the system print dialog panel, the process takes an excessive amount of time to process a print to a device or other interface (especially Preview), compared to the previous version as well as when compared to other browsers, like Safari.

By excessive, I mean 10-30 seconds for anything in the browser; where previously the request was completed in 1-2 seconds.

When I attempt to print a deposit slip or send an invoice from QuickBooks Online, the embedded pdf only shows if I set the pdf extension to always display in firefox. If I set it to always ask, I then pick show in firefox and it opens a new tab with the pdf. AND it downloads it to my download folder, neither of which I want to happen.

Running Firefox on MacBook Pro iOS v 12.2.1. Recently updated Firefox, now while navigating through tabs, FF randomly selects multiple tabs. When this happens, I can only view the one tab, all others are selected, but I cannot then go to that tab to view. I'm not sure I'm explaining this well. Also, I cannot close the tabs with the X but must right click for drop-down menu to close. I can open new tabs, but that tab is becomes the anchoring selected tab, any other tab I try to go to then becomes selected, as well as every tab in between, none of which I can actually view, they are stuck. I have tried "select all" in hopes of then de-selecting, but deselecting is not an option.

This is really holding me up as I have work to do and cannot view the necessary tab. I'm extremely frustrated.

LOL, as randomly as it starts, it stops...I wanted to take a screen shot, but no, everything is fine now.

I use Firefox for Facebook but have discovered that if a series of images are posted in Facebookk then the normal left and right click buttons either side of the image to move from one image to another do not work. Nor do the left and right keys

I have just done a test posting on FB and checked it does not work in Firefox.

I've swapped to Opera and that works.

I'm on a M1X MBP 2021 Monterey 12.3 and I've just downloaded and installed the latest Firefox just in case

  1. Default home page keeps getting reset to "Browser default" every day or two.
  2. The search engine choice keeps defaulting "Browser default" and goes to Yahoo. My preference is Google.

Earlier someone said that one of the Add-ons might be causing this and that i should disable all of them and try. No improvement. It still keeps happening.

I even re-installed FF to no avail.

Can someone help sort this out?

Many thanks.

I am in the process of moving all of our passwords into 1Password. However, I discovered that my wife has her Firefox set to auto login, but can't remember her user name and password. So, although she can use it, she can't change update the password. The fact that on setup, auto login is the default makes this doubly frustrating. So, is there any way to get to the password?

I received the message Access Denied Error 121 while working on my Ancestry.com page. I have always had access to Ancestry using Firefox. I tried logging off of Ancestry and logging back in. That did not fix the problem. I also made sure that Ancestry is on the Standard setting for cookies. That did not fix it either.

What do I need to do to fix the problem. I use a MAC. As I said before, I have always used Firefox for my Ancestry work because the site works better on Firefox than Safari.

Please help,
