When I want to print a page of Firefox I get the response: "Firefox is blocking popups". When I try to change this, I get the mask for exception, but only for websites, not for things like printing. Why do I need a popup to print, why can't I define printing as exception?

If I check my internet speed in Firefox using various speed test websites, it shows 50Mb download, and upload shows about 9Mb. In any other Browser it reports 70Mb down and 20Mb up. It has been 70 up & 20 down for some years. If I restart Firefox in safe mode, I get 70Mb / 20Mb as expected. If I remove Add-ins, it is still slow. I tried a refresh, and it's still slow. I have no extensions, themes and have turned hardware acceleration off. Changing the proxy settings doesn't help either.

I just discovered today, 7-2-20, that the latest version of firefox is not compatible with the latest version of the statefarm.com website, while chrome and opera work fine with the website. Apparently, statefarm.com has recently done some upgrades that make it incompatible with firefox. The mozilla developers need to get with statefarm.com to see what the compatibility problems are so that the situation can be resolved. My guess at this point is perhaps adobe flash player related, but that's just a guess. Until this is resolved, I will use opera to access the statefarm.com website.

I received a Firefox notice that an upgrade was available, so I clicked "not now" and triggered the update by Menu > Help > About. Firefox apparently downloaded its update, then asked me to restart Firefox. I did so and got a "ransomware" notice from my antivirus program, saying it fixed the problem (but not how). Trying to run Firefox repeats the notice. Does Firefox now have malware in it?

A Web search turns up nothing. I am posting this question from Google Chrome.

Hello!

I have bought a new computer recently and for the life of me cannot seem to get the history/passwords/bookmarks to sync to it despite using Firefox Sync. I have enabled these items to be synced, checked that cookies are on, closed and restarted both my computer(s) and firefox multiple times as well as everything else laid out in forums here.

Can anyone help me port my bookmarks over to my new computer?

Thanks.

If anyone knows of an extension that handles this on latest Firefox Beta let me know. Thank you.

With very vague help from your Support answers, I figured this out on my own and had to comment because all too many times your experts forget they are not always dealing with techs on answering these questions. For me this is what worked when I tried to alphabetize my bookmarks: Open LIbrary, show all Bookmarks (bottom of the list of bookmarks), click on Views and select Sort.

I have always clicked on the Firefox icon which I have pinned to my taskbar and the home page which I have assigned in "options"..... https://www.yahoo.com/..... would open in a new tab as I also have set in "options".

After updating to the current 78.0.1..... all I get now is a blank new tab.....

If I click on the home page icon in the upper left hand corner..... I go to my home page as expected which opens in a new tab as expected..... and once Firefox is opened..... if I click on the Firefox icon in my taskbar..... the home page opens in a new tab as expected.....

Therefore..... the problem is..... FIREFOX MUST FIRST BE OPENED in order for the home page designator to be recognized and open in a new tab.....

IF IT IS NOT FIRST OPENED..... Firefox opens a new bank tab..... then..... once it opens..... it functions as it should..... and as it always has in the past.....

I'm sure that this is some setting that has inadvertently been changed during the update..... and if you know how to correct my problem..... which I'm sure many many others are experiencing..... please let me know.....

However..... I have read a couple other topics which I'm confident are referring to this same problem..... and the responses are doing nothing more than explaining how to set the home page or something which falls under the "setup" category.....

Please..... give me some credit..... The problem I'm describing has nothing to do with the user's end or something I'm not doing or haven't done..... and everything to do with the developer and the update.....

Thanks!

I use text replacement strings (System Preferences > Keyboard > Text) for a lot of things, and they work system wide except for in any forms in Firefox!

Is there something I can turn on/off in about:config to allow this?

Is this related to Firefox insisting on using its own spell check dictionary instead of the built in OS dictionary that works in every other app? Can I turn this feature off as well?

Show me how to find the bookmark manager

I've seen this question from two years ago, but the answer is not valid (any more).

I had several machines with different purposes and when I got a Firefox account, I signed them all in. Now the bookmarks are chaotic, and I want to combine them in a more rational way. I need a real manager that allows me to do this. I'm sure there is one, but I cannot find it.

Currently FF 77.0.1, according to help.
