With "print on both sides" checked, the "backside" of each page is printed inverted top to bottom. I believe this began after the latest update. I'd like to revert to the old, more conventional, and (for me, at least) easier-to-use older system.

The ability to edit and customize the headers and footers for printing was one of my main reasons for switching from Chrome to Firefox. Now I can't find where to do this. I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

This has been an issue of mine for the past few days and I can't find a fix. I've tried to troubleshoot it and I've repeatedly reinstalled Firefox several times. The application either:

a. Doesn't open at all after I click the icon b. Freezes, refuses to register inputs and/or crashes c. Works temporarily, eventually turns into part B

My OS is Windows 10 and I want Firefox to be my default browser but it's not running properly at all on my computer. I have sent multiple crash reports because of this. Does anyone know what the problem could be? This has never happened to me before.

I'm going to say that for the last 3 versions of Firefox, I've had issues with many pages not loading images, not displaying the most current data, and every once in a long while (very infrequent) a page will just fail to completely load and I'll have to hit refresh so the wheels on the bus keep spinning.

Pages I have issues with: Yahoo Yahoo News Facebook CNN

The not loading images is the most frequent issue. Sometimes I'll need to reload a page a couple of times to see a pic. This is NOT on pages I have cached, but rather new pages I'm visiting.

The issue of not seeing new content is especially clear when approving new members or posts to a group within Facebook. This is a very regular occurance.

I just recently reloaded my computer from scratch (Mid Feb 2021), and this did NOT alleviate the issue, but rather it continued unabated.

The loading image issue looks like this.

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

I dislike how bad the customer service is. Firefox doesn't listen to anyone and works hard to make sure they cannot listen to anyone. Notice how this link doesn't work: https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page

However, the main reason I no longer use this is the back and forward buttons don't work on 3rd part mice. It;s really annoying, and I don't want to get carpal tunnel over manually reaching for buttons that don't actually require that.

In short, I'm not a masochist. I want products that are not frustrating; who doesn't? The "community" (i.e. outsourced customer service to unpaid lemmings who give their one and only lives to this for some reason) doesn't result in changes or answers.

Because Mozilla refused to receive feedback elsewhere, I need to post this here to give them some kind of a clue that they're moving in the wrong direction. 3rd party hardware is everywhere. Accommodate it or fall behind into uselessness.

Strange behaviour when copying images on Mac

Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

Quoted from: https://www.theregister.com/2021/02/24/firefox_cookies_86/ ..."it's Total Cookie Protection With Some Exceptions, Handled Automatically" ..."Meanwhile, Google and its ad tech frenemies are racing to develop various Privacy Sandbox proposals so they can implement behavioral ad targeting"

I don't WANT exceptions! Behavioral ad targeting is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I don't want Google shaping my searches and influencing my opinions by "telling me what I want to hear"...it thinks! Total Cookie Protection sounded exciting until I read this. How do we force it to work "without automatic exceptions"?

I was excited about this new feature because it might allow me to stay logged in to sites like Google and Amazon without their infamous tracking and search-shaping. If not this setting is pretty useless.

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.
