Firefox 104-107 has square box symptom and numerous dots on printouts instead of letters

Greetings. I waited a long time before updating from FF 88 to FF 104, concerned that the header and footer issues I previously experienced (and resolved) with FF's print preview interface would recur after updating to a newer FF version. Unfortunately after updating to FF 104 the very same issues recurred. The only solution was to disable FF's print preview interface once again and use the Mac print window instead for all printing tasks. Doing that solved the issue with headers and footers getting cut off pdfs and printed pages, but it did not solve two new issues that began after updating to FF 104, which have persisted through FF 107.

When printing emails and/or content from webpages, FF has been inserting what I believe is called square box symptom (multiple square boxes in a row with question marks in some of them) instead of the actual text that is on the email or webpage. FF is also printing a long series of dots across the page in certain areas of my emails, which I assume are the very bottom of the letters that are supposed to be there. These issues have never occurred in all my years as a Firefox user until updating to 104.

Does anyone else have these problems when printing emails and/or webpages? This behavior does not occur with every email or webpage that I print or save as a pdf, but it is prevalent enough that I am having to rely on Safari to create pdfs and/or printouts.

I've done everything I can think of to resolve these two new issues but the behaviors persist. I am attaching 2 screenshots of a recent order confirmation email that I saved as a pdf to demonstrate what the issues look like. The title of the email is cut off. All you can see is a bunch of tiny dots. The amount of the refund is nothing but dots. The title of each item in the order is a bunch of dots, as is the price on the far right. There is a row of square box symptom between some of the items in the order, followed by more missing titles and prices represented by dots, and more dots for the amount of the discount and subtotal.

I was going to submit a bug about this but wanted to inquire here first in case there is a solution that I have not tried. Clearing cookies, cache, and running Disk Utility has not resolved this. Any assistance you can give me is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I hate being forced to restart my firefox following an update that I didn't ask for. It's particularly annoying when I'm on a video-conference and I start a search and I'm forced to come back to the conference, wait for them to accept me again, etc...

At a minimum, an option should be offered to disable the restart (I didn't find any).

Thank

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance

Hello! Sites like Gartic Phone and Whiteboard Fox do not respond to my Huion tablet pen. I don't think Firefox recognizes the pen as a drawing device.

I have done some troubleshooting and have figured out that this is a Firefox specific issue: Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge both respond to my pen on those sites. I saw another person was struggling with this exact same issue, but the thread was archived with no response.

How do I fix this? Was there something I missed in the settings?

I want all downloads and files to save to a specific folder on an external hard drive. It used to go there. But now, even when I change the location in "settings" and "about:config", when I save it goes to "Documents". Right now, but say it's set to my desired location, but when I do a "save as" it goes right to "Documents", as if "settings" isn't even there.

How to I get the save location to stay where I want it to be every time?

I am using Mozilla Firefox 64-bit with version 107.0 on Windows 10 21H2. I connect very often to HTTPS websites without a valid certificate. Often with certificates issued by themselves. Before it was always enough to say "I trust this website" once. Now the question comes again and again, whenever I connect. What could be the cause of this?

Why isn't the Restore Previous Session choice available on the Open Application Menu? Even if I click the checkbox under Tools/Settings/General/Startup: Open Previous Windows and Tabs (version 107/windows 11), I am presented with a tabula rasa screen on reopening my Firefox session. Your help/support says to go to the Open Application Menu/History and choose Restore Previous Session (located between Recently Closed Windows and Clear Recent History). However the Restore Previous Session is not listed. Not sure why Firefox can't get this right since you have had it right for the almost 20 years I have chosen it as my default browser.

I recently switched from Chrome which had the Reading List feature which you could view on the Chrome Android app as well as Chrome PC.

I recently figured out Firefox has a similar thing called Collections but I can't find out where it's located on the Firefox PC application.

Or do I have to do something to sync it with my PC?

Library window cannot be sized smaller than HUGE, Firefox 107.0 64 bit Windows 10 Pro

After updating to 107.0 -- I've been getting update notices every couple of days lately -- I am unable to size the Library window to a dimension smaller than IMMENSE.

I generally have a lot of open windows on my screen -- browser windows, file folders, Notepad files, and so forth. I keep the Library window's Downloads section open, sized to display ONE download. In the rare event that I am keeping more than one download visible (I generally "Clear Downloads" after moving a newly downloaded file from my Downloads dir to its destination dir), then they will scroll vertically.

Suddenly, I find that I am now unable to shoehorn the relatively small Library window (sized to hold ONE download) between my Downloads dir (above Library) and my "Next" dir (below the Library window), containing a list of bookmarks I plan on loading.

I am using my machine for research, and I have worked out this system and have been successfully using it for several years now.

By "now" I of course mean "then" -- argh...

I have looked through the browser.download section via about.config. The only possible suspect I could find was browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel -- but, changing it to False did nothing.

I really do not appreciate this "stealth misfeature" (it does NOT show up in the documented list of changes to this version), and if there is ANY way to revert to NORMAL behavior, I would really appreciate knowing about it.

A paternalistic "we know best" attitude, LOCKING ME OUT of the ability to resize a window -- other than to make it LARGER -- well, I want to keep a civil tone, so I won't say how I feel about that, other than to point out that in an earlier life I was a developer, and I am well aware than this sort of sizing restriction is something that must be INTENTIONALLY coded. It doesn't "just happen by itself."

Someone at Mozilla DECIDED to impose this [redacted] on the world.

I guess I will now see if I can find the FTP site to back down one version and hope there are no backward-compatibility issues. As to FUTURE updates (please note that I did not say upGRADE), I am at a loss to figure how to handle them.

This is SO [redacted] frustrating!

Here (attached image) is what I am talking about. This is now the SMALLEST size I am ALLOWED to size the window!

Lately, "Sign in with Google" popups have been occurring on MANY websites including sites like Overstock, Ebay, and others. I hate google and in no way would I EVER give them my logins and passwords. So why is firefox throwing that popup on my websites? How do I block it? Have you gone over to the dark side and are you now using the Chromium browser????
