BarTender Software No Longer Shows Printer Status

I know this is a longshot. I used Firefox for the last couple of years with Seagull Scientific's BarTender software on my Windows 7 pc. Now my PC was wiped out and Windows 10 as part of my company's initiative to get everyone up to Windows 10. BarTender uses a driver to talk to your print drivers and provide a status back to the BarTender server and webpage that we use. After the move to Windows 10 Firefox will not work with BarTender. It works in MS Edge and Chrome.

 I've got a ticket into Seagull Scientific and I can foresee how this will go.  They will point me back to Firefox and then I'll get pointed back to the vendor.   I know it will be hard to find someone with a similar issue.  But maybe someone had some issue with another driver, etc that stopped talking to Firefox.   
I've tried to turn off all of Firefox's protection stuff that might be interfering and still not working. 
I have used Firefox and prefer it over any others.   But I also don't like the idea of having to change browsers depending on what I'm doing.   Besides, this software I have to regularly use.   So if I can't find a solution I may have to abandon use of Firefox.

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

I was very glad with SSB and use it a lot in my workflow but suddenly it stop working in the 86 version update. Now I know that it is no more supported and I started a dangerous practice of installing 85 version and omit updates (in fact this is not too useful because I accidentally update my firefox two times and have to manually reinstall the 85 version). I now this was an experiment but is a shame they stop supporting this kind of progress. My question is, is there an alternative to SSB currently implemented? Which is the closer form of such experience that can I get from command line? I mean: features like new window, no toolbars, independent (no open links in the tabs of previously opened window), could it be resources independence too? Thanks you beforehand.

hello everyone,


I'm having a trouble that seems to be frequent lately (see below a former discussion), and that is driving me nuts.

I've installed my dictionaries, verified the about.config marks, and still the right click for spell check and language choice has disappeared on my outlook 365 web.

Curiously, it works perfectly on Outlook 365 web on Chrome, and here in this text box on Firefox.

Would anyone have a clue how to fix it? (don't want to have to switch browser from Firefox)


Thank youé1 Daphne

Thank you for your replies all. I have worked it out. The language packs were installed but not "Unpacked" All OK now. Thanks cor-el cor-el

Language packs (strings for the user interface) do not need to be unpacked, but dictionaries always do need to be unpacked (they have an unpack property), so do not mix up these two.

I regularly do repeated tasks in different subject areas, for instance, finance, sports, business, etc.. With each of these, I regularly go to a standard set of sites in different tabs.

How in Firefox can I create sets of tabs such that all I need to do is click on one, Finance, for instance, and have it automatically open the set of tabs that I saved in that set? So, then I could open Sports, and just see the regular set of tabs that I saved for that topic.

In other words, using different instances of Firefox, I could open different sets of tabs without having to open those tabs individually every time.

The Firefox Web Browser no longer works on the PNC Bank Corporation Website. I got an error message that came from the Bank's server. Firefox works in the past but now it does not.

I was told by a PNC Banker in a local branch office that I should use either Edge or Chrome. I used Edge and it did indeed work.

I am using a fully updated version of Firefox Version 86 on Windows 10.

Dear all Maybe, someone is able to help me out here:

We're supporting several companies with the following setup: User's are working with an office computer. However, they are also able to work from home via VPN and RDP. Folder redirection is enabled and directs to a network drive.

Since Firefox usually only updates while the application is running, we regularly face the issue where the Firefox profile wasn't able to load on the office PC because it was opened with a more actual version (the one from the Remote Desktop server) earlier.

Is there a way to update Firefox without launching the application first? Preferably from command line so it could become part of the logon script? All I found which looks helpful is the section "Service Command Line Parameters" in https://wiki.mozilla.org/Windows_Service_Silent_Update. However, I wasn't able to get it working so far.

For example, I want to have Duckduckgo in the address bar, and Google in the search bar. Is there a way to do this? I know in both bars there is the option "This time search with:" that is good and all, but is there a way to make it permanatly one of those options depending on the search or address bar? If not, I would like to recommended Firefox adds this, as I think it would be very useful for many users.

After the Firefox and Windows updated I've lost bookmarks from the last 4 months. I have majority of my bookmarks on the bookmark toolbar just not the recent ones. Firefox old data only goes back to Sept 2020. Even the restore points doesn't have the recent ones. I had them on my android but I couldn't get them to sync to the desktop so I uninstalled Firefox on my android and now I don't have the updated ones there anymore.

Beste,

Ik print heel vaak. De laatste twee weken krijg ik geen "afdrukvoorbeeld" meer bij "bestand". Dat was zeer handig aangezien men dan een pagina kreeg van de betrokken webpagina die toeliet om ook de afdruk te vereenvoudigen (grootte tekst, weghalen vermelding datum, naam pagina, ...).

Hoe krijg ik dat terug ?
