I can no longer log into my vudu.com account using my Firefox Browser, can this be fixed, or do I have to use Edge now? There are other websites that I could never log into with Firefox, but I consider those sites that I don't have to use, but I have a movie library on vudu.com, I pretty much have to use vudu.com. I never had a problem logging into vudu.com before, it has to be one of the last couple of Firefox updates.

Previously inspecting the page info (Ctrl + I) and going to the media tab, I could select an image and download it in its original file size. This has changed to where the image is now downsized, even when opening the direct link in a new tab. The image comes out squished and distorted.

Is there a fix for this? I've tried clearing all cookies & cache which has worked in the past but not anymore.

Good Morning,

I accidentally deleted my browsing history on Firefox for "all time". One of the pages I used to access an office email address on Outlook to which I have forgotten the passcode. I turned off the computer and turned it back on unfortunately. I am wondering if there is another way to find past browsing history?

Thank you.

I had Firefox 89 when this morning I could not watch my Amazon videos because I kept getting a message saying that I needed to upgrade my Chrome browser. Since I never use Chrome, I decided to check if Firefox was at the latest version. When I clicked into options, I saw a notice saying that Firefox is not my default browser. I thought that somehow something had messed up my settings since I made Firefox my default browser when I first bought this computer over a yea ago, so I clicked the button to set it as default. That took me to Windows settings which showed that Firefox was already my default browser.

Since then I have restarted the computer multiple times; upgraded to Firefox 90 and restarted; deleted Chrome; reset Firefox; gone to Windows settings and changed my default browser to Edge. then later reset it back to Firefox.

The Firefox options STILL indicate that Firefox is not my default browser.

What is going on? Does anyone have any ideas?

I first noticed this after I could not play my Amazon videos this morning -- which I can play now after having reset Firefox -- but I am worried that this will affect other things.

In Firefox, I select DuckDuckGo as default Browser. I type the word "news" and in the address bar it automatically adds google which I don't want. Even when I type in the Firefox address bar, the address always converts to news.google.com. I have to manually select DuckDuckGo as the news browser. How do I stop Goggle from redirecting my search to its news address?

Okay, so just as I have stated in the subject, this is my direct experience at this time. I've found on the forum people having trouble saving .html, but those were other issues unrelated to Firefox. I cannot find specific reports relating to my issue. To those, if you see this, who saved your web pages to .html (only or complete), did you open those files to check that you could read them? The unreliability of browsers in the past leads me to distrust this expectation that saved data is done and preserved without checking/validating.

Here is what I did. I saved a page (and for sake of accuracy and precision, it was search results from duckduckgo.com) to an .htm file. (Again, for sake of accuracy, I'll insert here that Windows Save As dialog box provides the "Save as type:" options list, which are: "Text Files", "Web Page, complete", and "Web Page, HTML only".) I chose "Web Page, HTML only"; now, while it says "HTML", Firefox creates the default extension of ".htm", so this is the extension used; and I simply used the default filename, no changes. Then, I simply went to my "Recent Items" menu in Start menu and opened the just saved file. It opens to a blank page, except for a very small text box with my search query in it and two little tiny buttons next to it; the content of the page is not displayed. (And, after post analysis, the file size was 7kb, which indicates that it did not really save all the data of the page content.) I then tried opening the file on a different computer with Firefox - same result. I also opened the same file with Chrome - same result. At least there is consistency here. Therefore, the conclusion must be that Firefox is not saving correctly.

There is no help to be given in this case, as I have done nothing wrong. I have done exactly as instructed by and to others in other forum posts and as described in other help pages on how to save web pages to a file. Everyone talks about the actions of how to do; but not about the results of reading saved output.

So, I make the post in hopes that this get to the developers to fix this problem. If this does not happen on all computers or in all situations (for all web pages) ... well, I think it still lies with Mozilla to fix it, because here is one case where it positively does not work! If my situation is unique, I do not know why ... and if it works for others (to save from duckduckgo) then I don't know why ... again, not for me to figure out; just take it as fact, this action of saving web pages in Firefox does not always work.

Thanks.

PS - I'm using SingleFile as an alternative work around (but I don't see why the "Save As" should not have worked perfectly for all of web browser history).

I just upgraded to Windows 10 today and when I entered a website address, all I get a blank website. Also: sometimes when I opened Firefox my bookmarks which I installed from my Windows 8 failed to show up. The section where it says to "Sign In", nothing happened when I click on it. It won't display the e-mail address where I synced my bookmarks before I switched computers.

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

Phone is dead so notification code option is off. (which didn't always work in the past, eg when i forgot a password - which i think isn't the case now) I don't want to go downstairs and turn on my phone, for the principle of it. Clicked 'i cannot use my phone' sereval times during mutiple attempts to find other ways to log in . Google says i have to use my phone Did they change policies? Could it be that someone hacked my account, fb also notified 'suspicious login attempts but they were so recent (one min ago) that it must have been me.

I just bought an HP Officejet 9018. I tried printing a receipt that was sent as an attachment to my gmail. It only prints very small in the upper left hand corner even though the print preview looks normal. I tried to print a return label that Amazon sent me a link to. It printed the same way. I called HP & after connecting with my laptop & trying many different settings unsuccessfully, they had me try to print from Chrome. The attached receipt in gmail & the return label printed fine from Chrome. It also printed fine from my gmail in my Android phone & my iPad, so the issue is only when in Firefox on my Windows 10 computer. My saved documents print fine. I just updated to the latest Firefox today, but the issue started when I got the HP printer & tried to print while using Firefox 2 days ago.

I saw instructions in here on checking the paper_data. It shows letter. I changed from "fit to page width" to Scale 100. I still have the same issue. There was one other instructions given to someone in Mozilla Support to click "file" & then something else, but I have nothing on my page that says "file". I assume the person answering the question thought the person asking was trying to print a saved document, but that wasn't the case.

I tried to attach screen prints, but my laptop is having issues & isn't saving them for some odd reason, yet I can see them in the "recents" in Microsoft Word. I save them again, but the same thing. It isn't in the folder when I click "browse" on "Add images" below.

What else can I do? it's such a pain to have to go to Chrome every time I want to print something. Thanks
