Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

I welcomed the Picture-in-Picture feature to the Mac, which allowed me to watch YouTube videos while performing other tasks.

Recently when I have clicked on the Picture-in-Picture icon, the view does the exact opposite of what I want to occur. I want a small window that I can move around and resize. Instead, the video goes Full Screen.

I've tried right-clicking on the icon and on the video, double-right-clicking, looking through Firefox settings, updating to the latest version, etc. -- but stiill don't know how to recover the Picture-in-Picture feature. How do I get that back? Thank you.

There is a site that I've been accessing for months from firefox. Today, all my attempts to access it result in "Forbidden: You don't have permission to access this resource." If I bring up a safari browser, the exact same URL loads fine. I didn't change any firefox configuration settings. Any ideas?

I recently couldn't logon to my local online banking site. The thing is, is had been working just fine for years, and then all of sudden stopped working. Upon calling the bank they said everything looked fine on their end and try using a different browser. I used Chrome (would rather NOT use that browser), and I could logon fine. I found that if I disabled Privacy Possum it worked fine, so, now when I want to logon to my local bank I just disable Privacy Possum and it works. But I don't understand why it all of sudden quit working.

Now I can't logon to my Penfed credit card account. I tried turning off all the extensions, NO help. I went to the Firefox trouble shooting section and refreshed Firefox and did what ever else they said to do like clear ALL my history and cache...still no help. My Penfed had been working just fine until today, and it also comes up fine using Chrome. Is there anything that has changed in Firefox that is blocking my two online banking accounts that you know of?? This seems very strange.

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

I keep my Bookmarks Sidebar open. It works properly for a few minutes and then it doesn't. The behavior it shows is as follows.

1. It quits scrolling. I have to click the web page and go back to the sidebar to scroll again. 2. It scrambles the bookmarks when I click one. 3. When I click one bookmark it opens some other one.

Basically it acts crazy. The one fix I have found is when it is acting up and I close and reopen the sidebar it starts working properly again for a while. Then the problems repeats until I close and reopen the sidebar.

Is there a way to import 'CLIQZ' bookmarks? Cliqz has been discontinued and no longer supported. I have been using it for several years and want to import its bookmarks to Firefox so I don't have big job of replicating. Because Mozilla and Cliqz were affiliated I thought there might be some method to do this but can't find a way in Firefox help file. Is there a way to do this so I can go back to using Firefox?

I am having a problem specifically with PNC's website. FF 85.0.2, Mac OS.

I can get to landing page. After attempting to login, it shows this message:

"Please try using another internet browser. If you still receive this message, please call the Customer Care Center at 1-800-762-2035 and reference code: 18.84386368.1613484239.62933e90"

I can get the site to load in other browsers, and on my work computer (Same build FF, but Windows 10)

Attempted fixes: Turn on Safe mode Delete cookies, browsing history, cache Uninstall Norton Anti-Virus Refresh profile Forget about this site (which I have FF set up to delete cookies, history, cache on close, but manually re-enabled history and tried this as well) Attempt to browse with Private Mode Off, all tracking settings off

I have thought about uninstall/re install but if my profile is the problem, don't know if this will fix it.

Installed plugins noted.

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to (website).com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details...

So my question is, would attackers be able to steal such information if i never enter any? ie, if i only visit the site to read about things...
