Hello, I'm trying to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account but each time I try I get the following message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email" I'm not typing the same main email address, I'm actually trying to type another one. The only possible reason that comes to my mind is that the address I want to add is already used as a secondary address for another Firefox account (namely, the one I use at work). I don't know if it makes sense, but it's the only possible situation this address is to be already found. Any ideas why this happens and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

Is there anyway to restore the format (compactness) of the Bookmark Menus without setting the Automatic Updates to not automatically update and then downloading the 88.0.1 version? I hate to not have the Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, but don't want to use the double space of the Bookmarks even more.

Please tell me, in as few words as possible, how to disable update notifications. I thought Windows was bad, but they're not constant annoyance.

If Firefox would just stop closing discussion threads, and maybe, just once, answer a question helpfully, community would be able to help each other. Thanks, ML

Firefox updates - how to stop them and the annoying reminder

I think I'm about to give up with this 'get help' thingy...everytime I press Enter/return carriage it disappears!

I don't like update 89. If you want a detailed reason from me then let's just say I have old eyes and I agree with all the complaints I've read so far. So, as I always make a recovery point before updating, I've rolled back my computer to 88 and will be staying there, thank you.

Now I would like a way to stop the annoying update notice. Please don't tell me to make files and scripts and mess with the registry...I mean, for goodness sakes, where's the button or the "opt out" thingy?

I will not be updating again until I read that I can keep the look I had without having to 'add-on' or try themes or heaven forbid make my own.

If security changes were Firefox's reasons for updating fair enough...but how did the look of a piece of software become a security issue? If this is 'new fresh' I don't want it, I'll just stay old and stale thanks.

I just bought an HP Officejet 9018. I tried printing a receipt that was sent as an attachment to my gmail. It only prints very small in the upper left hand corner even though the print preview looks normal. I tried to print a return label that Amazon sent me a link to. It printed the same way. I called HP & after connecting with my laptop & trying many different settings unsuccessfully, they had me try to print from Chrome. The attached receipt in gmail & the return label printed fine from Chrome. It also printed fine from my gmail in my Android phone & my iPad, so the issue is only when in Firefox on my Windows 10 computer. My saved documents print fine. I just updated to the latest Firefox today, but the issue started when I got the HP printer & tried to print while using Firefox 2 days ago.

I saw instructions in here on checking the paper_data. It shows letter. I changed from "fit to page width" to Scale 100. I still have the same issue. There was one other instructions given to someone in Mozilla Support to click "file" & then something else, but I have nothing on my page that says "file". I assume the person answering the question thought the person asking was trying to print a saved document, but that wasn't the case.

I tried to attach screen prints, but my laptop is having issues & isn't saving them for some odd reason, yet I can see them in the "recents" in Microsoft Word. I save them again, but the same thing. It isn't in the folder when I click "browse" on "Add images" below.

What else can I do? it's such a pain to have to go to Chrome every time I want to print something. Thanks

Hello.

Cycling through unpinned tabs is easy, Ctrl+Tab does the job.... But what about pinned tabs?

People are more likely to have more pinned tabs open and saved to their browser than unpinned tabs, like myself, as surely, that is the point of pinned tabs.

So I cannot for the life of me understand why I can't find a keyboard shortcut to cycle through these!! Is it really possible for developers to overlook this simple but extremely useful and effective shortcut?!

Can anyone help?

Mike.

Occasionally, across all websites (as far as I can tell), the screenshot toolbar item is greyed out for me and I can't click on it. Meaning I can't take screenshots. I use windows and so snip and sketch is an alternative I can and do use but I prefer using Firefox's own screenshotting tool. What to do??

I have been trying to update this firefox now for months. I have been asking and asking but no-one bothers to come back to me!!! And please, I know how to update! It doesn't work. My "about" shows Firefox is updated, yet is keeps on asking me to update and won't let me use eg Netflix before I update. This is so frustrating but you guys are just not interested in helping. To tell me how to update is obvious - I know how to do it, but it won't work!!! Don't know whether I should just switch to another browser rather.

I download Endnote .ris reference files every day, and have done for decades. Endnote supplies a parsing tool that imports the data into the database. But it has just stopped working. In the import dialog box, the message that comes up on downloading a ris file is: "what should Firefox do with this file?

  Open with Notebook (default)"

Well down the dropdown option list I can choose to open with Endnote, so I clicked on "Do this automatically for files .." then chose the Endnote option. Which works, but it doesn't stick. If I go to the Options page>Applications>ris, nothing comes up. If I choose >Endnote, the suggested option is to open every Text file with Endnote - not a good idea.

Has something gone wrong with Firefox or with Endnote settings? Thank you
