There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.

I use & want to continue using Firefox Password Manager but, since updating to Version 90.0.2 (64Bit), The "Please enter your primary password" window keeps opening about every 15 minutes (I have not timed it). I have already entered my primary password & used the auto login with several webpages. Then the login window will popup & I will have to re-enter the password before I can use the features. I am running Windows 10, with the latest updates installed.

When I restarted Firefox after a freeze, I did NOT get the familiar message that lets me choose to restore all windows. When opened, Firefox showed only ONE window (the one I was working in when it froze up). The Firefox menu (upper right corner) does NOT display a Restore Previous Session option. It's as if all the windows open in my last session never existed. Is there any way I can still reopen them now?

Thanks to terrible, productivity-sucking changes in the basic functions of the FF browser, I have started using other browsers. First - FF updates far too frequently - almost daily. No option to block update notifications. Never know if it's something trivial, an important security fix, or a major interface change. The 'what's new' page is always incomplete. 2nd - FF downloads software surreptiously through the sneaky "normandy" back door and inserts feature changes irregardlessly. Doesn't matter if you explicitly selected NO to enrolling in studies. Users can't get a straight answer on how to disable Normandy. Named after the Allied stealth invasion of Europe, it does the same thing to our computers. 3rd- FF caters to fringe techie desires with an onslaught of unwanted or unsuable additions that bloats the software, uses up CPU, or inserts intrusive attention-seeking diversions. I am forced to spend too much time after each update to investigate how to shut off unwanted surprises as well as unannounced alterations to my option settings. For example, if I press the mute button on my keyboard a very large media window pops up and takes over a sizeable chunk of my computer screen. It cannot be resized. It has no close button. Took hours to find out how to disable this. 4th-FF developers seem to expect users to have the newest computer equipment, huge display screens, and lot's of extra memory. If not, too bad. 5th - the recent puzzling, arrogant changes to the basic print function is evidence of that mindset. FF developers say they aren't going to let users revert to the normal "classic" small foot-print pulldown menu on the left side of the screen to preview, set up headers, etc. Too bad if the open window is too narrow to view this new intrusive, real estate consuming right hand display. Too bad that you can no longer simply seamlessly interact and accomplish the task. Too bad that the FF developers think they know better than you that you should change the way you work. 6th Reader view is an obscure feature. I do not want to be forced to use it. I do my best to strip out or ignore the overwhelming number of pictographs competing for my attention, 7th - I can no longer see URLs in the address bar. You've truncated them. I am forced to cut and paste them into a text editor to see them in their entirety. 8th - Firefox hangs video streaming sites like peacocktv.com. Windows Taskmanager shows that FF forces CPU and hard drive usage to 100%. 9th -There is no mechanism to escape, break, or interrupt FF's failed video stream. How sad that Microsoft's obnoxious Edge browser is better at video streaming. It uses far less system resources on the same video streaming site. AND doesn't hang the OS. It's likely FF's new unwanted capability to launch multiple picture in pictures - which I don't use - hogs resources. 10th- How about beta testing using 'normal' non-super techie /gamer users? 11th -FF disabled user Feedback. I stopped updating Firefox. Not trustworthy.

Every time I switch on my laptop, I found that it was heating up without opening anything. I open the task manager and I see that Firefox is running and using a huge amount of the CPU and apparently consuming a lot of the battery as well. Firefox is not there in my startup list. I have reinstalled and installed multiple times. I have tried changing toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. I have tried changing browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false.

If I do open Firefox now, without ending the task that is already running, and then close it later, it is still running in the background. Only way to stop this task running is to end task and I have to do it every time I switch on my Laptop.

I hope I have described the problem well, please let me know what other details I can provide. I am putting a screenshot of the task running as well. Thanks in advance

When I try to screenshot and download an image it screenshots multiple images instead. My OS is Windows 10 and I'm having this problem when trying to screenshot and download an image from Instagram. I right click on the image as I always have and it screenshots and saves multiple images instead. I never had this problem before updating to Firefox 88 and I've been using the screenshot feature for well over two years. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and I'm still having the same problem. The image I'm trying to save is the one on the upper right.

Hallo

Seit einigen Tage versuche ich die Suchfunktion in der Adressleiste auszuschalten.

Egal was ich mache, die Suche in der Adressleiste lässt sich nicht deaktivieren.

Wenn ich einen neuen Tab öffne, dann habe ich da ein Suchfeld. Möchte ich dort etwas eintippen springt, das einfach in die Adressleiste.

keyword.enabled habe ich auf false gestellt.

In den Einstellungen eine eigene Suchleiste.

Inhalte des Firefox-Startbildschirms ist eine eigene Suchleiste eingestellt. Und diese benutze ich zu 90 % und sonst die Suchleiste, aber niemals die Adressleiste.

Was kann ich tun?

Vielen Dank und Gruß Robert robert.jordan@gmx.at

The Firefox Community here has tried to be very helpful with all the users who hate the changes in Version 89/90, but we need Mozilla/Firefox to hear us.

CSS work-arounds are fine for the IT-literate, which I am not. They are also only temporary. We have no indication that FF is even paying attention to our complaints.

They need to understand that some users have a keyboard and mouse attached to a PC, not a touchscreen like on a pad or phone. It looks like FF wants to cater to touchscreens. This DOES NOT WORK for PC users.

I suggest one UI for touchscreens and a different one for PCs. IIRC, there is a FF version for Windows AND a different one for Apple; why not do the same?

Nobody seems to have any response other than "use this CSS fix." I've also been directed to "clean up the help platform myself" - huh?

Can we please get SOME kind of response from the platform itself? Or are they just trying to get rid of all users without touchscreens?

Hi All -

I need to change my Primary email address to allow me to Sync. When I type in the Secondary email address a message comes up saying it can't be the same as the Primary address despite the Primary address displaying as a different address. No idea how to get out of the loop.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Hello,


I use web.de and gmx.de.

The form data I had always entered were suggested to me via drop down. This is still the case with web.de, but not with gmx.


In the Firefox settings I agreed to fill in the login information automatically, but it doesn't help. The following are checked:

Asking whether to save login credentials and passwords for websites

- Fill in login details and passwords automatically

- Generate and suggest strong passwords


In the chronicle I chose "create".

A change to "user-defined" does not change anything.

The following are checked:

Save visited pages and download history

Save entered search terms and form data


The point "Forms & automatic filling", which is often mentioned on the web, does not exist for me under "Data protection & security".


I would really appreciate any help.


Many greetings

Juliengel

I wrote a message in GAB chat but just as I sent it I lost internet . The message is gone but not delivered. I searched online how to recover and followed instructions to do this. type or paste about:cache in the address bar and press Enter. Under disk click the link to List cache entries. This may take a long time.

Eventually you should see a list that lets you find the URL you're trying to decode. If you click it, Firefox should show the content there and list the compression type, which most often will be:

Content-Encoding: gzip

In that case, if you save the encoded content to a new file with a .gz extension you should be able to decompress it using your favorites ZIP utility. Of course, finding the beginning and end of the content may not be intuitive. I don't know whether the cache entry info page is helpful or not.

    The problem is I have no idea which item in the vast list is on GAB because they all say google and Firefox thanks for any advice and please tell Firefox we are extremely disappointed that they teamed up with commie Google we can no longer download you tube videos unless we go through chrome and the downloader they offer uses 3 time as much data in the same format as the down loaders we were able to use
