Hello,

I am using Firefox version 92. The screenshot function is not working, both if I right click and request a screenshot from the slideout menu, and if I request a screenshot from the shortcuts/overflow menu (scissors icon). I have attached a screenshot (taken with ‘prntscr” through windows) png of the result that takes place on my screen. The screen will freeze with this image of a large X until I do a refresh of the page. Cntl-Shift-S also does not work. I have tried clearing the cache, running FF in safe mode, refreshing FF, reinstalling FF, and I have ensured that the extensions.screenshots.disabled setting in about:config is set to ‘false’ (also toggled it to ‘true’ and back to ‘false’). I have attached a screenshot of all the settings in about:config that pertain to screenshots.

Thank you for your help.

FF has been my default for decades primarily because of superior print options. I use Custom Print option to print out pages in larger front, but this no longer seems to work in 92.01. At say 115 custom I lose text to right and bottom of page (both in preview and print to PDF).

Hello,

I love Firefox, but lately it is driving me insane! Here is what happens:

Most of the websites I visit, if they have more that 1 language, Firefox loads different language when I load a new page on that site.

For Example: I go to prestashop.com and the site loads in Russian. Then I click Templates in the main menu, and the page is loaded in Polish. Then I click on Modules in the menu and that page is loaded in German. And this happens randomly, not every time.

Second problem: I try to open a product on some online store and it redirects me to the previous page I was in. I try to login in other site and when I click on the login button it redirects me to the previous page again. That happens on many sites I visit, but not all.

I tried cleaning the Cache, Cookies and etc - nothing changed. Reinstalled Firefox and logged with my profile, the problems are still there. If I do not log with my profile Firefox is working normally.

Is there a way to fix this and not by creating new profile, because I have a ton of bookmarks and logins that I don't want to loose?

This is not happening in private mode.

First of all know that I am a retired computer tech and have tried various ways to resolve this problem myself to no avail, maybe someone here can help me. Here is my quandary: When I update to the newer version (92.0.1) of Firefox on my Windows 10 Laptop it changes the background & Menu Bar to a white-ish/gray color and I cannot get my menu bar color back to the black background with white text that was in the 86.0.1 (64-bit) version. The bookmarks toolbar remains a white-ish/gray color & with the Menu bar the same color it all blends in and I do not like that. I would rather have the Menu bar remain as a black background with white text & the bookmarks toolbar remain the white-ish/gray color. Is there a way to change the colors back to what they were in the 86.0.1 version? I have currently uninstalled the 92.0.1 version and reinstalled the 86.0.1 version and that is what I am working with now. However, I keep getting a pop-up every once in awhile to upgrade to the newer version, which I deny because of the background color changes, and I have continually asked the support team to keep the color changes the same but have heard nothing back from them concerning this issue and when I try to change the colors back to their previous settings I cannot find the means to do so and I have tried to go into the themes/color options to no avail. Is there a way to keep the colors in the 92.0.1 version the same as they were in the 86.0.1 version? Thank you for your help in this matter.

I am printing pdf file in firefox. This file is again converted to another pdf file and sent to spooler directory /var/spool/cups as printing job. When I try to read this spooled pdf file through our application, then we are not able to extract text from that pdf file. PDF file is displayed properly but when we copy text from it and try to paste it somewhere then text is not correct. For example if the text in original pdf file is "Block" then through spooled pdf file we get "L?:'&".

I read that Firefox will using the Snap version by default on Ubuntu 21.10 and beyond. Will the non-Snap version still be available in lets say Ubuntu 22.04 and beyond? The reason I ask is because I use Firejail to sandbox Firefox and Firejail doesn't work with Snaps and yes I know that Snaps and Flatpacks both sandbox apps but I prefer Firejail because of the Private Home profile (nothing is saved in this profile settings, bookmarks, add-ons etc) its way more secure than the sandbox offered by a Snap.

I updated to the latest version of Zoom on Aug. 31 - as directed by my university. Immediately experienced issues using Zoom, and using MyLearningSpace aka Brightspace aka Desire2Learn.

Issue with Zoom: When I'm in a class (Zoom meeting), if I share screen, the Show Video panel option is now gone. Completely disappeared. When I stop screen sharing, the Video Panel comes back, and the option to hide or show it returns to the menu. Unfortunately, this is a nightmare for me - I can either show my students their slides, or I can see them to answer their hands up. I can't do both - which obviously I need to be able to do. So I basically can't run class on Firefox now. My uni IT has no idea what is causing this or how to fix it.

My uni IT keeps telling me, over and over, "Stop using Firefox. Use Chrome." I don't want to stop using Firefox, though. I've used it for decades and I believe in the product.

I asked over an a Zoom community forum, and several Firefox users replied that they are having the same problem. I can forward that thread, if it's helpful.

I am using the latest version of Firefox.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Firefox leaves full-screen mode when window manager remaps window to be in a frame and re-sizable.

In the window-manager that I use (KDE plasma), I can ask the window-manager to exit full-screen mode, without telling the window. This allows me to tell a window to be in full-screen mode, while in a framed window. I have attached a screen-shot of chrome showing a youtube video. Both youtube and the chrome are in full screen mode, however the window manager has re-sized it and added decorations (title-bar&frame), and is allowing me to resize, move, minimize, maximize, etc.

This works for every program that I have used (that has a full-screen mode). However it is not working for Firefox. It seems that Firefox is triggering off of the wrong event.

My guess: the window-manager sets NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN to enter full-screen, and would normally clear this attribute to exit full screen. When we exit full-screen, but stay in full-screen mode, the attribute is not cleared. However Firefox is triggering off of something else such as a re-size event.

Use-case: What I am trying to do

  1. Enter full screen mode: browser hiders tab-bar, and address bar, maybe web-page changes layout (e.g. you-tube resizes video player to fill window)
  2. Tell Window-manager to leave full-screen-mode, but not inform browser (or other app). Browser is now still hiding tab-bar, address-bar, site is till showing video in whole-window, but window can be moved and re-sized.

This works for every other app that I have user. (Some apps don't have full-screen-mode, so this does not apply to them. But it works for all that do have it.)

Hello Team,

There are two things which have been missing out from Firefox for many years.

1. Allow the Add-ons for (only) Private mode - Extra Protection. There are many Add-ons which I am only comfortable running in Private mode. There has to 3 options in the settings to choose; enable add-ons in Standard Mode, Private Mode or in Both.

2. Useless History - Unnecessary Overhead on Disk and Memory. There are many websites for which I don't want them to have a History such as Google Search; Gmail; Outlook; Twitter; YouTube, etc by obviously running in Standard Window (Not Private).

Users should have the option to let the Firefox know to not save visited URLs history for specific websites. Or keep the history not-older than 30-days for selective websites.

Let's make Firefox more secure, efficient and faster!

Regards, Rashid
