I have Windows 10 and use Bing as my search engine. I have to change Bing preferences (ie search suggestions) for each session. How can I make them stay?

I've been told this is a browser issue. I have looked at all preference possibilities in Bing and Firefox and not found the place to make my search engine preferences -- such as no search suggestions popping up, not filtering results, identifying my location to refine results, etc. -- stay after I leave Firefox or shut off my computer. When I go on line again, everything has reverted to the Bing default.

I would like to use Firefox for 64-bit computing and visited the download page. While this offers Firefox "in your language" the only option I can see is US English, and that is not my language. Is such a download available somewhere? If not I shall have to make do with Chrome.

I'm currently using KDE Plasma on Archlinux and Firefox windows are very laggy when maximized. I have a 4K screen and running Firefox at full 4K causes scrolling to be very choppy and makes YouTube almost unresponsive. If I make the window smaller (about a quarter of the screen or the size of typical 1080p), it speeds up and works normally. I've tried the nightly build, Icecat, and Waterfox and none of them have made any difference.

I use a AMD Radeon R9 Fury X GPU and have the latest version of xf86-video-amdgpu installed and have hardware acceleration enabled in Firefox settings.

EDIT: I've now tried Firefox in Cinnamon Desktop as well as KDE Plasma and they are both equally laggy.

Firefox will not print to Canon LBP7660C correctly

Color Laser Printer; Canon LBP7660C, UFR II driver.

Windows 10 version 1607, build 14393.1066 (& the 5 or 6 prior to that)

Firefox v53.0 (& about the dozen before that).

ONLY Firefox, ALL other Windows 10 applications print correctly.

Have attempted all of the work arounds and suggestions, removing, reinstalling, totally purging all of Firefox, etc.

1) Ignores which tray to draw paper or envelopes from; always only wants the manual feed tray

2) Incorrectly scales printed objects & pages. For example, a return label from Amazon is printed about 1/4 the actual size. A web page is between 1/3 to 1/5 its actual size. An airline boarding pass (United, American, & Delta) is about 1//4 the correct size.

3) Ignores all graphics scale setting in the printer driver setup

4) Ignores settings for color/black & white/grayscale

5) Ignores settings for printing on one or two sides, always only prints on one side

And several more printing related issues.

Also incorrectly scales anything printed to Adobe Acrobat X, when opened & printed through Firefox, when opened from Acrobat directly, prints correctly.

ONLY Firefox. No other application has any of these issues.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

I am trying to open a jigsaw puzzle which I have always done with Crazy4Jigsaws and am unable to get the number of pieces to download 52, 192. So I checked my plugins and found the Flash Player was not activated, so I enabled it. When that did not work I tried reinstalling the latest. After downloading Adobe requested I should close Firefox to install the Flash Player and then it would get to 59% and say Firefox was open when it was not.

How might I disable Fire Fox from checking web site certificates?

WHY: I get too many "Secure Connection Failed" when there is really no problem. BING.COM doesn't have a bad cert according to other browsers - but FF seems to have a problem it. I would like to disable any Fire Fox checking any web site certificate. How?

Cert error is: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_INVALID_SIGNING_CERT
