Hi, in just the past few days I've discovered that when I visit a website and set up a log-in ID and password, the password that Firefox Manager offers to save isn't being saved correctly. For example, say I use the password 143143, it saves it as something like 973973.

This has happened to me three times that I'm aware of (and I kept having to go back to Safari's saved passwords to find the correct ones, since I typically use randomly generated passwords.

I'm running macOS Mojave, 10.14.06, so I haven't changed the OS in well over a year. (I haven't updated as I have an SSD that's not APFS.) Any suggestions? Many thanks.

I updated Firefox and it removed EVERYTHING i previously had!! My homepage, my icons, my bookmarks. Incredibly unhappy and will no longer use your browser. Totally incomprehensible and really, just sucks. This has never happened with previous updates and clearly your tech team f**ked up. Did I mention this sucks?

I reset my privacy settings to "standard", as they were causing too many problems. I quit Firefox. Some websites (like Google) are still telling me that cookies are disabled, when they are not and don't allow me to go to these websites. I attached 2 screen captures. Any reason for this and how to fix this problem?

Thanks.

I'm using Mac OS and the system dialog works better for me than the one provided by Firefox. And if a preview is necessary, it is possible to activate "Preview" from the system dialog box (Additionally offers the possibility of generating a pdf).

On this forum the subject is very present; there are a large number of "about:config" keys whose modification is supposed to provide a solution; it's a big mess. Some changes that worked with Firefox 101 no longer work after updating to Firefox 102. Eventually I found an answer here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363191

This question is important. Can you suggest a stable and accessible solution for future Firefox updates? An option in the "Preferences" menu?

Printing images and text at wrong size

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Mac OS X 10.14.6.

Whenever I go to print PDFs from Firefox, usually through Gmail, if there are any images in the PDFs they are blown up way past their margins and rendered unreadable. This isn't a huge issue but it is affecting some text as well, meaning I can't print the documents directly from Firefox. I can download the documents and print them from Preview just fine, so it isn't an issue with the printer.

I'm attaching a screenshot of my print settings and an example of what Firefox is outputting (converted to JPEG so I can upload it).

Why does every update include loads of stuff that worked fine before but then gets broken?

BBC News webpage - always was fine - update 105.0 arrived - now has to be zoomed down to display correctly on a 12" Macbook. Default appears to be trying to display a mobile layout.

I don't want to have to adjust the zoom every time I look at it. And I don't want to set the zoom to 90% for everything.

Any suggestions for a cure? Thanks.

I am using the latest version of Firefox with Mojave on a Mac.

Lately I have experienced slowness despite the fact that I didn't add any software and I have Norton checking for viruses. Recently I got a message "Your system has run out of application memory" when I had 5 tabs open in Firefox. I checked Activity Monitor and it showed Firefox using 1.16 GB. 7 other apps were open, the next one with the highest memory usage was Mail (465 MB). Activity Monitor showed 30 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content entries.

I attached a screen capture showing what Firefox was using in one of these instances. Is this "normal" with 5 tabs open?

I closed the open tabs and quit Firefox. Memory usage by Firefox went down, but after a short time the problem happened again.

A search on the internet showed lots of similar complaints about FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content. Is this a known bug? Any way to avoid this problem?

Thanks.

I really like the new Firefox View, but I'd love to be able to get to the view with a keyboard command. I tried treating like the first tab (Cmd+1), but that doesn't work, nor does Cmd+0. Hovering over it doesn't reveal a keyboard shortcut. It doesn't appear on any of the menus, so I'm at a loss as to how to assign a custom control.

Thanks so much!

Hello:

This option used to work for me and then 3 weeks ago it stopped. It is very frustrating. My CC number is saved in the browser's settings and yet everytime I click on a place to autofill my cc info it shows up for a brief second and then DOESN'T autofill. What gives?

I took a screenshot of my settings.

Suddenly, as of this morning, downloading is behaving differently-in a bad way.

• The first problem is that downloads are no longer showing their bit rate; I cannot tell how fast or slow a given download is progressing. I have different available servers and need to select the best for the situation.

• The second is that, upon completion of an mp4 download, my media player (VLC) opens the file and starts playing it, which didn't happen before. It's extremely distracting.

I can't find anything in Firefox preferences which might alter these behaviors.

I don't know enough about these particular events to know whether to attribute them to Firefox or to the website that is providing the files.

Hoping for assistance getting things back to where they were, with thanks…

Just jumped from 91ESR to 102ESR, and am annoyed by some new "features". (That's why I use ESR, so this doesn't happen often.)

First, I noticed that the default for downloading changed from "ask" to "save". I eventually found how to fix that, but, in the process of searching, I typed "firefox download" in the urlbar, and suddenly up popped "Trying to fix a problem?", suggesting I reset Firefox.

I'm old enough to remember Clippy (look it up), and feel the same way as I did then. Call this new feature "Flippy".

I did some searches, found that this behavior has been called "intervention" (I prefer "Flippy"). I also found old sugesstions on how to disable it, but they don't seem to work.

Even Microsoft provided a way of disabling Clippy. How do I disable "Flippy"?
