Recently, I think since updating to 78.0.2, after pressing the Print button on the webpage it takes 10-20 seconds for the print dialogue box to open, rather than opening instantly. This seems to be the case for all websites I have tried. However, if I select Print from the File menu or use Cmd P, the dialogue appears instantly. I am using Mac OS 10.12.6. Please let me know if there is a setting to change to prevent this printing delay. Also, there is no delay in the print dialogue opening if I use a different browser (Chrome).

I'm using Firefox since 6 years and I don't see a shortcuts customize page.

I love you're app and I can't tell myself that you haven't turned on this feature.

SO WHERE IS SHE ???

(I do this post because I add the extension "Multi Account Container" and they add the shortcut CMD SHIFT + to open new Personal Container. But I use CMD SHIFT + to zoom on my window, so when I want zoom he open new tab.)

Thanks you

My bookmarks toolbar font size suddenly got smaller and I can't figure out how to change it back!

I haven't made any changes to my display settings, but after the latest Firefox update (July, 2020) my bookmarks toolbar font size got way smaller and there's no setting to adjust it back. I do not want to make my webpage font size bigger, just the bookmarks toolbar font. It is infuriating to have this change take place without me specifically doing anything and I should not have to download an add-on or extension to fix this (nor should I have to do some weird about:config thing that someone else posted; that makes zero sense to me and is potentially dangerous).

What the heck happened with the most recent update and why are there no controls to adjust toolbar font size in the preferences!?!?!?!?

Since the latest update from Firefox I have been unable to autofill using Dashlane password manager. Also to make certain payments. I have just discovered, by using Safari which I rarely do, that everything works normally. Is there a problem between the two?

why don't some Mac trackpad controls work in Firefox?

Mac trackpads (at least on my MBA running Sierra) have options for using the trackpad - like pinching or expanding with two fingers to zoom in or out, or smart zoom where you double-tap with two fingers to zoom in. These don't work in Firefox - but I don't see how (or why) a browser should prevent using trackpad gestures that are part of the OS. My FF is up to date.

Change keyboard shortcut keys (specifically Cmd-Shift-P)

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit) on Mac OS 10.15.5. One of the main websites I use is based on Eclipse Theia which is essentially VS Code in the browser. It works fine except that the main shortcut for Theia is Cmd-Shift-P and everytime I press it it opens a new private window. I need to change open new private window in Firefox to something else (Cmd-Shift-N ideally) to match Chrome so I can use Cmd-Shift-P as expected in Theia. I've tried searching the forum and the web but can't find the solution.

How do I make this happen?

I restarted the browser manually as well.

Hi!

Tried to find the answer in previous posts. Latest Catalina on my Macbook Air. Latest Firefox.

I can not zoom with the usual finger gestures within Firefox, but other web browsers (ie Chrome) can.

Is this a "known" problem, or is there a setting I have missed somewhere?

Thanks. K

I am using Firefox version 78.0.2 on Mac OS X Catalina 10.15.5, I have 2 external monitors, this error only happens when Firefox is on one of the external monitors.

I have many bookmarks that I keep in folders in the bookmarks bar, when I click the bookmarks bar folder for the section that I would like to access the drop down list for the bookmarks in that folder shows up either on the main screen of my Mac or the other external monitor. There doesn't seem to be any specific occurrence that makes it show up on one screen of the other. I have tried to reset/refresh Firefox already as well to no avail. How do I get the menu to go back to show up under the folder that I click on?

Attached are 2 photos one where I am clicking on the "Weather" folder in the bookmarks bar and another showing the second desktop where the menu is showing.
