I thought having reported this problem long (I'd say years) ago - but still I have to use other browsers when I want to print many websites into a Pdf-file: Firefox creates only one page. E. g. when checking files on virustotal.com I keep a Pdf-file with the results. This needs usually two or three pages - but firefox creates just one. If I zoom it down to 40 % everything fits in that single page. But I'd rather have a file which I don't have to zoom up before I am able to read the contents ... When I use e. g. Opera several pages are created

Moving Firefox windows between screens with different text size settings

On my Surface Pro, I have the Surface screen display Scale ("size of text, apps and other items") set to 200% as it's resolution is 2736 x 1824. I have set my second screen scaling to 100% - resolution is 920 x 1080. When I move opened apps between them, they auto-adjust - e.g. Excel, Word, Signal, WhatsApp, Zoom, Mozart music processor, MS Paint, even Microsoft Edge (not that I use that browser too often). Basically, any app I use .. apart from Firefox.

Firefox retains the 200% from the main screen so shows itself huge on the 2nd screen when moved there.

Why (indeed, how!) does Firefox do this? What setting, if there is one, can I use to correct this "naughty" behaviour?

Understandably, it's hard to take a screenshot and "prove" this behaviour happens. While creating this post, all of this window down to "naughty behaviour" shows on the Surface Pro screen. But if I drag the Firefox window over to the 2nd screen the "When I move..." line is the last fully showing line of text.

I recently bought a graphic tablet (https://www.trust.com/en/product/21794-panora-widescreen-graphic-tablet), and it works flawlessly outside of firefox. However, when holding BigBlueButton lectuers, I need to use it within firefox, which doesn't seem to work. At first I thought it was an issue with BigBlueButton, but now I tried other websites (limnu, cocreate, etc.), and they all have the same problem:

Whenever I move the pen on my graphic tablet, only the first and last 'points' are recognized. Is there a way to increase firefox's refresh rate for mouse clicks? Or is there any other solution?

I'm using firefox 68.9.0esr, 64-bit on windows 10.

Firefox always asks whether I want to save passwords of websites I visit. In case of soem of my personal financial sites, I never want the password saved. In Options / Privacy & Security / Logins and Passwords, I have the box "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checked, but I list the sites I don't want saved in "Exceptions." Despite this, Firefox always asks, and each time I have to check "Never ask" again and again. Extremely annoying. What can I do to fix it? Thanks! Best regards, Gedeon

Im a recent convert to firefox, and have been consistently running into an issue with opening websites and links just after opening firefox.

The problem i am running into is when opening a link from the "newtab" page, it opens a blank page with no url. Additionally opening any links from external websites such as discord shows the same errors. It does appear to be reproducible, but only consistently with some websites (being twitter and reddit in my case)

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the normal firefox version, and have also tested it with the nightly builds. Did not fix the issue.

Hello, ever since about 3 days ago, the controls on tumblr have gone missing in my browser. At first, I had it happen in every browser and in the private mode, but after a day of that, it is now only happening in firefox anymore.

Explanation, in case it's unclear what I'm talking about: On every blog on tumblr that you open (URL.tumblr.com, for example https://staff.tumblr.com is the link to the blog of the tumblr-staff if you'd prefer an actual blog to look at), in the top right corner of the page, there should be a few buttons, depending on if it's your blog or if you're logged in or not varying between 'follow' and 'join tumblr', 'edit post', 'edit appearance', 'reblog' or 'like', things like that.

  • I'm not sure if that part helps with solving the issue, so just in case: From what I can tell, the controls use codes of iframe to work.
  • It is not specific to one blog on tumblr, the controls are gone on every blog/page I open.
  • I opened the pages in private mode and the controls are there. When I go to add-ons and disable everything, the controls still are not showing up though, so I don't think any add-on can be the cause.
  • It did work until a few days ago, and I didn't change any settings in my browser during the time.
  • I'm using the newest version of firefox (77.0.1), or at least I'm not getting shown any updates left to do in the 'about firefox'.

All that I can still think of to do is to try to refresh, or if that doesn't work completely un- and reinstall firefox, or maybe try an older version of ff if that still doesn't help, and I would really rather find a solution without taking such big measures, which is why I am asking here.

Is there maybe something else that private mode does that I could try to do to fix this?

Thank you in advance for the answers I might get!

So my friends and my partner like to send me TikToks throughout the day, and before the last update or so, it was working fine; every TikTok would open, and when I pressed play, it would play. Since, I believe, the last Firefox update, I can watch one (1) TikTok per browser session without issue (it won't load, as shown in the image I've attached). At that point, to watch more, I either have to use my phone, close and reopen Firefox, or refresh my browser, which was fine in the beginning, but now it's getting a little frustrating. I've attempted browser refresh, which doesn't remove the problem, and the site works fine without fail on Chrome and Edge, but I don't like either of those browsers since switching to Firefox 6 months ago. Ultimately I'm bringing it up because no one else has. If there's a way to fix it that I haven't found yet, I'd love to hear it. Otherwise, it's still worth bringing up so it can be fixed. Any ideas?

When you reload a page (pressing F5, clicking the reload button, etc.) (rather than navigating to the page some other way), the cache for the current site is cleared and all resources (images etc.) are requested with `Cache-Control: max-age=0` (at least, that's what seems to be happening)

Is there some way to disable this behavior? I thought Ctrl+F5 or shift+reload was supposed to clear cache, but it seems like it's no different than reloading normally?

Hola, he tenido problemas recientemente con Mozilla y otros navegadores. Se me cierran constantemente, se me queda en pantalla negra la PC, o incluso me aparecen mensajes como "Ahh la pestaña falló". Probé todo lo que encontré en esta página: (https://support.mozilla.org/es/kb/firefox-se-cierra-inesperadamente-como-resolverlo-#w_actualiza-tus-controladores) pero no hubo resultado y ya no sé qué más hacer. No sé si es algún virus el problema, pero mi anti-virus no detecta nada. Tampoco son las extensiones, o la aceleración del hardware. Realmente no puedo encontrar el problema.

Estos son los fallos más recientes (como verán sucede constantemente).

Hi,

I have recently changed my first choice browser to Firefox. But when connecting to my bank the F-secure bank safe connection doesn't open (it still does on Edge).

When searching solutions I found on F-secure support that a requisite for bank protection on Firefox was to active an add-on in Firefox called "Browsing Protection by F-Secure". But I can't find it. Is this Firefox add-on deleted? (I have surched the archive/store.)

Do you have any other solutions how to activate the F-secure bank safe connection, and some kind of F-secure browsing protectiona s well?

I have no idea what is causing this to happen. It is also affected when connecting to google. It starts either after browsing for some time or having my computer wake up from sleep. Edge does not have this issue. The scenarios trigger it: youtube is in a tab and after a while I switch back and refresh it and have channel logos and/or thumbnails blank, opening a video in private mode and not connecting while normal does or vice-versa, not connecting after waking up from sleep and not opening in either normal or private mode.

The only way to fix it is through restarting the computer.

Also youtube seems to forget my autoplay setting when this situation appears.

I have tried disabling ublock origin and tracking protection to no avail.

The same settings are applied on another computer and that computer has no issues.

V 77.0.1. Windows 10

This is the message I get: Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.youtube.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I have been using a dual monitor for about a month now and my secondary monitor use to sit next to the laptop but once I mounted the monitor on the new mount I purchased. I set the screens so that the laptop is the bottom screen and the secondary monitor is the top screen. But if I open Firefox or Google Chrome or Edge on the laptop the browsers hang over onto the bottom of the secondary monitor. I don't know what to do to fix this issue.

So could someone give me a hand trying to fix this issue.

Thank You in advance.

I really need help with this problem. I recently had to re-download my Firefox to fix an problem I had with my Computer and when it was done, my Browsing Protection by F-Secure no longer is working. I went to the extensions and it was not there. I then reset it on my Security Suite and nothing. I even re-set my Security Suite and Firefox to fix this problem and again nothing. On Google Chrome it works but not here. I even tried to search to see if it could be added through the Extension, nothing. So here hoping you guys know a way to do it. I really do not like searching without it.
