Why does the Firefox print button launch the save window? When I open an attachment from an email to print, the print button automatically wants to save the document as a PDF. If you try to open the PDF after being saved, it will launch the printer function on my MacBook Pro.

I have tried the procedures in the "Fix Printer Problem" article, which does not resolve the problem. If I refresh Firefox, the print button will work for a few days and then reverts to saving files.

I have removed and redownloaded Firefox multiple times, and I get the same results. I have used Firefox for quite a while and never had this problem. This issue is something that has started about two months ago.

Hi.

When logged in to google (e.g., gmail) in one firefox tab, I am them auto-logged in to that same google account in any new tab or window I open. Is there a way to stop this?

I would like to be able to have one tab logged in to a google product (e.g., gmail, google calendar, youtube), but retain a "blank slate" when I open new tabs or windows, so that I can browse anonymously or log in to multiple different accounts (google or otherwise).

I have privacy badger and HTTPS everywhere installed in firefox, have set the browser to block all third party cookies, and to never remember history (high security settings across the board) . I tried enabling Multi-Account Containers, but I'm not sure how to use it and also suspect it is a more complicated functionality than I actually need.

I would imagine there has to be a way to "break" the connection between multiple open tabs or windows. Thanks!

I got since yesterday error F7121-1331 when I try to stream any movie on Netflix.

Netflix support said it's related to firefox. They said to uptodate firefox but I have already latest version (86.0).

Only other solution according to them, is to use an other naviguator. And, well, it works with Chrome, so it seems really related to firefox.

Everytime I start up Firefox Nightly in fully maximized. The tab area as you can see in the picture provided shows like that all kinda glitched out in the tab area until I either move firefox around again or remaximize firefox to fix it. It only happens when firefox is left maximized when I close it and then reopen the browser but doesnt happen when it's not maximized. I hope we can figure this issue out and sorry if it's not in the right topic. I'm thinking it has something maybe to do with the skeleton UI thing? It doesn't happen on any other version of Firefox.

When I visit quora.com on Firefox, I get broken images. This doesn't happen with Edge or Chrome, and of course not on my other devices (so not a network/firewall issue). It seems to be only on Quora so far.

I tried deleting cache, refreshing the browser, creating a new account, running without add-ons or plugins, without success. Switching off the enhanced tracking protection doesn't help either. I am running out of options...

The only thing I can think off, is that the browser was installed with admin rights that I do not have anymore, although it still updates without errors.

Can anyone help?

I selected the new HTTPS-Only mode in Firefox 83.0, and some URLs are being blocked, followed by the "Secure Connection Not Available" message. Yet, when I click "Continue to the HTTP site," the site URL is HTTPS, and the grey lock in the URL bar is in the fully secure position. Please let me know what this means, or whether this is a bug to be worked out. Thanks in advance.

On certain websites I can't login, firefox keeps opening new tabs with the same login page. For instance, I try to login on Zulily, I click the 'sign in ' link in the top right corner of the box (image 1),I enter my email address and password (image 2) and click the 'shop now' button. I'm redirected to the first screen (screen 3), I did not just rename image 1 as image 3 and re-upload it. Image 3 is the actual 3rd window I'm redirected to. I have cleared cookies and caches and histories and deleted possibly corrupt cookies.sqlite files. I have cleared the startup cache and disabled add-ons and logged in in safe mode. I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox. It's not all sites with logins, either. just certain sites, and it remains consistent which sites I can or can't log into. I have googled this problem with as many different re-wordings as I can come up with and no one else seems to quite have this exact problem. I'm running Firefox 86.0 64 bit for linux mint on Mint 20.

I got a bug, or a hack, or a virus that corrupted my FIREFOX so had to uninstall and re-install.

Have got most of it fixed except I can't get the BOOKMARK "BAR" to display [see pic attached].

If I select "Bookmark" on the top bar, it opens the bookmark window but I want it where it has been for over a decade, between HISTORY AND TOOLS.

I downloaded the current rel 86. My first FIREFOX copy was ~2004/2005 ver 1.0.

Hello. In any firefox windows, the glitch (see attached images) is present, Any time i mouse over an interactive elelment, all of the speckles change position, and sometimes color. they look to be very random, sometimes being absent from a large part of the page, and other times being very thick throughout it's entirety. the only way i have found fix it is by downgrading version, however i still would like to know if there is a solution for fixing this version. in chromium browser, this glitch isn't present, it also only, in the past, displayed on pdfs, and some iframes (HTML term for embedded websites in windows), but now it covers the whole page, it isn't unusable but sometimes is hard to look at. This glitch has been present for at least a week (current date is march 1st) but definitely longer. Thanks.

When I go to a web page which is a PDF, the web page used to load as a PDF. Now there are 2 tabs, one is blank and has an address which refers to the PDF location, and the other is a PDF saved to the Temp folder (eg. file:///C:/Users/USER/AppData/Local/Temp/some_PDF.pdf)

My preference is: www.some_website/some_PDF.pdf

This is because I save the tabs, and the next time I use Firefox, the temporary PDF is not loaded anymore. As well, I prefer 1 tab instead of 2.

Where is the setting to adjust?

My Firefox will not open no matter what I try because it continuously tells me, "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

This error started happening because my Firefox originally wasn't saving the add-ons that I was trying to add. If I closed my browser and opened another one it would be gone. I tried refreshing the browser but that didn't help. I eventually tried reinstalling to see if that would fix the issue and then this error popped up and now I cannot stop it.

I tried reinstalling. I tried deleting the profile out of appdata, etc in hopes it would make a fresh one. I tried making a new profile by running it without opening the browser only to be given an error that doesn't save it. I'm at a loss on how to get my Firefox working again. It is my favorite browser and this is the first time I've ever really had a severe problem with it. Help!
