Please can someone tell me why is there such a long delay between opening firefox and the master password prompt?

Also if anyone knows if there is some way to either speed up the master password prompt so that it opens instantly on opening firefox or prevent it from opening until a password box is present on the webpage.

The delay in the master password prompt is up to 20 seconds and is so annoying, it just gets in the way when you are trying to work.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Hi All,

My web pages have 4 basic sections, Header, Menu, Content and Footer. In the print media query position static is used. I understand that should make them print in order. All browser had this messed up for many years but I'm sure Firefox had this fixed for awhile. In version 82.0.3 this is messed up again, footer prints at the top of 1st page.

Is this a printing bug? Or, do I misunderstand position static?

Why can't it print as shown on screen, What you see is what you get?


Thank you for any help,

Charles

Search engine shortcuts in address bar

I have noticed that when I type "!g" in front of my search string in the address bar, the search is done with google despite using a different search engine. In addition, almost every letter on the keyboard will search a particular domain. For example, "!r" searches through reddit.

The weird thing is that I cannot find any documentation of this anywhere, and I cannot find any settings on this anywhere. The only similar thing is being able to use "@" with a custom keyword that has been previously set in the "search engines" menu in the settings. But this menu is limited and it is difficult to add search engines to it, as it requires you to visit that website, find the green plus sign in the tiny looking glass icon on the search bar next to the address bar, and click it and add the search engine. Then you can customize the keyword and then you can use, for example "@w" for example, to search wikipedia. But not every website gives you the option to add their search engine. For example,visiting Reddit results in no green plus sign over the looking glass icon in the search bar next to the address bar, despite the fact that "!r" works just fine.

So this is all very confusing, I hope someone can tell me what is going on. Thanks.

Hi, I am using Firefox 83.0 64 bit (not sure if it has recently updated or not). I noticed today that my extensions were no longer visible in the top right corner, even though they were still installed. I tried to fix the problem by deleting/re-installing firefox several times but this did not seem to help. I have now found out that they disappear when I select "Never remember history" on the privacy page. They re-appear if I select Rember history from the drop down menu. Is this a bug or is there a way to fix this. Thanks

I'm getting the XML Parsing Error message on Firefox after the latest update. I have tried every fix I can find in the help guide and the community section but none of them have worked. So far I have:

- completely uninstalled Firefox and everything related
- emptied cache of Chrome (which is what I am using to re-download Firefox)
- deleted everything in Windows Temp folder
- re-downloaded a brand new download of Firefox directly from the site
- run a full clean re-install of Firefox (same error message)
- restarted the computer (still getting XML Parsing error)
- unable to start Firefox in safe-mode as I don't have the button on the browser to do so.

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated as Firefox is my favourite browser and I want it back!

I noticed today when I opened a new private window and pasted a URL into the address bar, the website seemed to know that I had been there before. So I closed the window, opened up a new private window, turned on the network tool, and tried again. What I saw was on the very first network request, Firefox sent half a dozen cookies to the website!

What's going on here? Does the private browsing session not end when I close the window? Is it supposed to?

d/l an HP update (my computer & printer)& my blank screen has been replaced with pics from Bing (my preferred browser). it also screwed up a few other things but i mostly fixed them. went into about:config, found blank screen, set it to true but every time i go into a new tab, those stupid pics come back & not my blank screen. its been too long since i did anything in about:config & just can't remember how to fix this.

oh yeah, it took out the stuff at the top of my screen like cut, copy, paste & when i put printer back, it is faded out & will no longer work.
