Firefox has stopped printing webpages. I have done all the processes suggested on help and user pages. To be clear: - Same webpages print on my computer via Edge -All other programs print fine to any of my 3 printers on my home network and my printer at work. -There are no Error messages, I get the print preview, and I can alter any of the parameters there, I click Print and it closes the window, as it used to but it just never turns up at the printer. -I have tried the application menu, the Menu Bar (Filr, Print) and Ctrl P: All exactly the same. -I have removed and reinstalled ALL of my printers. My wife's computer has the exact same version of Firefox and has no problems whatsoever. Any thoughts, please?

The credit card save/auto-fill option seems to have disappeared from the settings on Firefox. I previously had it set to 'off', but when there was an issue recently I found the option was gone - although the about:config was still showing credit card options. Has this option been removed from Firefox now?

I am a single user of Firefox 123.0 (64 bit) on a Windows 11 desktop, Win 11 laptop, and Android phone. If I use Profile Manager to delete both of the the Profiles from my desktop ("default" and "default-release"), will that have any effect on my laptop or phone? Specifically, will I lose my passwords and bookmarks on all devices, or just the desktop?

Also, can I delete one of my two profiles? If so, which one? When I navigate to Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, I see four folders:

 lamrm8zp.default-release,  2/26/2024
 gqrogfwy.default,  2/24/2024
 06m8lkgu.default-release,  9/21/2023

Whenever I log on to my bank's web site, I'm sent an audible signal that invites me to start a chat session with a bank agent. The problem is that the audible alert is so loud that it startles me. This is very annoying. I called the bank's help line and was told there was no way they could adjust the sound volume. I would like to know if it's possible for Firefox to decrease the volume for that web site.

Hello, I'm using Firefox as my default browser for a while now (10+ years) and I'm getting frustrated with this issue when using Azure Devops. Comments don't load at all and most pages take a long time to load if they load at all. Various features also take a long time to load or don't work at all (examples include adding a reviewer, referencing a story with #, etc.). Anyone else experience this?

It works well for maybe an hour, and after a couple of days it makes no sense anymore.

Now I'm using firefox containers with a container only for Azure Devops and seems working better but ... Curious thing is that it pops up and asks for credentials periodically every 5 or 10 minutes. Well, unless the boxes are already filled up with the credentials.

Thanks,

I've been hoping it would get better over the years but it's been a very long time and things never got better so I'm wondering why is the "new"(I think it's been close to 7 years now) addon is so restrictive?

I can't live without tab grouping and it's impossible to do the way I like with this new addon system and none of the many alternative are as good so it's been keeping me away from firefox since the change.

Is there a reason it's kept that way? I'd really like to come back to firefox because I'm sick of chrome and the smaller browsers have many compatibility issues because website ignore them but as long as the addon system remain as-is, I just can't.

I am using Firefox on Linux. Version is showing as 114.0.2 when I do firefox --version. The display in the Firefox windows is completely messed up. Can't show what I mean as I probably can't get a screenshot. Is this to do with hardware accelerated video? These messages appeared when I tried it from the command line: "[GFX1-]: glxtest: libEGL missing methods for GL test Missing chrome or resource URL: chrome://global/skin/icons/warning-16.png" It starts and then has very high CPU. I had to reboot. I may have added something to the config in the past, using the GUI, but can't remember what I did, maybe to do with the hardware acceleration, thinking I could try seeing if it would work. I tried a few things adding these lines to a user.js file in the profile folder (something I found online):

"user_pref("browser.preferences.defaultPerformanceSettings.enabled", false); user_pref("layers.acceleration.disabled", true");

This has not helped. Is there anything else I can do?
