Firefox will show me the saved cookies in "Manage Data". I can have it automatically delete cookies, and in "Manage Exceptions" I can tell it which cookies not to delete. Why can't I select a saved cookie and tell it not to delete cookies from this domain?

whenever i try to download something from firefox the speed is always around 50kb/s which is very slow considering my connection is 50mbps and when i download from game platforms or elsewhere the speeds are at least 4mb/s. I have seen people say that it may be due to site slow uploading servers but this can not happen to all cites.

I have recently noticed when I copied web address which was in Japanese after copying on a note pad or even in the MS outlook email it turned like this %E3%82%B9%E3%. Before it was copied in the same language such as English or Japanese. When I look at the address in the browser it is in Japanese but if I copy and paste it turn in to %E3%82%B9%E3%. What could be the cause? Is it normal. Any guidance/help will be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Is there a problem with the forum software? Last answers are mentioned in the bottom line of the questions but they are not displayed and they are not counted in the top line. This is inconsistent information. Example the question "embedded grafics are not displayed" which counts 0 answers in the topline but mentions a last answer 18 minutes ago. But this last answer is not displayed, if one opens the question.

Now iOS let’s you set different default browsers I was hoping it would be possible to then open links in the gmail app with Firefox. However when you try to select a default browse within the gmail app Firefox doesn’t even appear on the list, even if you have it installed and set as the system default - the only options it presents are chrome or safari...am I missing something or is this just an issue with the gmail app either awaiting an update or trying to force me to use chrome?

Please can someone tell me how to prevent Firefox from printing blocks of background colour around text when printing while in High Contrast mode (ie with the 'Override the colours specified by the page with your selections above' option set to 'Always' or 'Only with High Contrast themes'). It is wasting a lot of ink and makes it difficult to read the printed page. I just want it to print the text, not the background colour from my display settings. The 'Print background (colour and images)' option is off.

I'm ising Firefox on a Windows 10 machine. Lately any time I open a new window it insists on opening several dozen tabs from previous sessions. I cleaned the cache. No change. I rebooted. NO change. I uninstalled it using an installer (Revo) that supposedly checks for all kinds of leftover files. I then rebooted. I saw no signs of it on my machine. I downloaded a fresh copy and installed from scratch. When I open the initial page it's fine. As soon as I open a new page all the old things are back in a gazillion little tabs. It's kind of annoying. Not to mention the time it takes to close everything by hand.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi,

Pages don’t seem to be updating properly on our website https://efi.int on Firefox.

Here’s what you get on firefox: boxes in the wrong order and not formatting properly, even though I’ve cleared the cache (on the EFI website CMS, and on Firefox on my browser!)

It happens in Firefox in MacOS and Windows version 82 and 82.0.1. For Chrome, Edge and Safari works OK.

Hi, I am a web developer and use CSS Inspect a lot - hours usually, everyday usually. I have been using Chrome for this for a few years, and they changed the Inspector layout in a way that slowed my workflow down tremendously, so now I'm using Firefox more for that. I have a few questions...

  1. In the Computed tab of Inspector, is it possible for the field / value pairs to collapse into one line? In Chrome - (first time you've heard a sentence start like that, I'm sure) - if I resized the sections, at a certain point they would do this. That way I can see twice as much, and all that space isn't wasted after the attribute. Is this possible here? I can tweak anything I need to - just looking for where to go.

Attached is the way it looks now, and a little excerpt mockup I made showing what I am hoping to achieve.

  1. Secondly, is it possible to have the Layout and Computed tab consolidated into one tab? In Chrome, I used to love seeing the box model directly above the computed styles.

Thanks, Ben

After the latest Firefox update was automatically carried out, I found that my access to my e'mail on a web based site is being prevented. I enter my normal name and password, I can see communication links taking place in the bottom left hand corner of my web page but then nothing happens, my entry web page does not go to the e'mail account web page.

I have tried changing the proxy contol to both "None" and "Automatically controlled by Firefox" but that has no effect. I am not using, nor is there any Proxy involved. I have also checked the firewall and that is open for my e'mail site.

The e'mail access was fine untill this update was installed.

What do I need to do?

Many thanks for any help.
