Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

When I used CONTROL + SHIFT + B it opens the bookmarks window, when the documentation says it should toggle the visibility of the bookmarks boolbar. I'm on 83.0 64-bit on Win10. I've also got FF Dev Edn (84.0b8 64-bit) and this shortcut works fine. I've tried refreshing Firefox profile/settings from the Help/Troubleshooting menu. Anything else I can try to get this working?

I'm trying to run Firefox on headless mode through Selenium in AWS Lambda. Since Lambda marks the root file system as read-only except /tmp/. I pointed the geckodriver to write the logs to /tmp but still Firefox is not starting up and it's failing with the following error.

Any guidance on how to get it working?

firefox_driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_profile=ff_profile, firefox_binary='/opt/firefox/firefox', options=firefox_options, service_log_path='/tmp/geckodriver.log')

Firefox 86 has introduced a new print preview panel which I like. What I don't like though is that the unit for print margins has changed from millimeter to inch (see screenshot, in German). In previous versions, it was possible to set the unit in the prefs by changing "print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_size_unit". Value 0 meant imperial units, value 1 meant metric units. This entry does no longer exist.

There is still the entry "print.printer_printername.print_paper_size_unit" for every printer that's installed. Those values are all set to 1 in my case but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

So how can I set the margins of printed pages in millimeters instead of inches?

Why did Firefox developers simply disable "Backspace" instead of making it a selection in "Settings"? I understand why some users can't stay "focused" and lose typed data, but the rest of us really like the backspace function to go back a page.

Yes you can re-enable it (& I did so) using "About:Config" but that's akin to REGEDIT and not for the faint of heart...

Am I going to have to make this edit every time FF Updates? and on each of my PCs?

Firefox Dev Ed is a great browser for web development and tweaking CSS. But sadly it does not always show default property values.

A classic example of this is the
    element's default padding-left property. This apparently is set at 40px automatically unless overridden by the web designer. I think that ALL inherited or default properties of elements ought to be clearly shown in the inspect tool's styling listings. You could spend hours maddeningly trying to find the cause of some of these offsets to what you expected to display. The curious thing is that some inherited or default property values are shown on the inspect tool - which leads us to assume that what is seen on inspect is all that there is . . . This change should not be too difficult to implement. And it would be a great thing to have when searching down unexpected behaviour in webpage displays.

When I click shift and right click always a context menu comes up and I would like to deactivate that. Concrete: I would like to draw arrows on a chessboard (lichess.org) with shift and rightclick, but then always a context menu comes up and distracts. This is very annoying and I would like to change that - though what I found so far wasn't that helpful for me.

Thank you very much in advance

I would like to use the amazon.com (and wikipedia.com) search engine and keyword. But since I have installed a non-English version of Firefox (or maybe because the default language of my OS is non-English), I get defaulted to amazon for a different country (and the Wikipedia for that language).

How do I get the US / international version as default?

How can I turn off permanently the new Firefox print feature, so that I again go directly to the familiar system dialog box in Windows 10 whenever I click on File/print in the menu bar? I don't see what this new print feature adds, except perhaps some people want the controls on the right side for whatever reason.
