I want to have a unified bookmark experience over two different user accounts on my desktop computer (one is my 'ordinary' account, the other is the Administrator' account. Importing bookmarks is a one-time event, and entropy takes over immediately afterwards. It occurs to me that using a Shortcut, to point to a single file, may be a solution. The idea being that any change to the single file will automatically perpetuate itself to both accounts.

My question - is this reasonable, or is there an even niftier way of doing this (a sort of "Blend the properties for these two accounts" type of setting).

Thanks,

Tony

Dear Support,

We are using IE on Windows for our main application and using ActiveX script to print directly to the printer and this is working fine. Now, we need to migrate the application to Ubuntu desktop and use the Firefox as web browser instead of IE but the ActiveX script is not working from Firefox. What is the similar feature in Firefox for Activex?

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

I have an old Macbook Pro, model 5.5 from 2009 running OS 10.6.8. I was running Firefox v48 on it, but couldn't open a particular webpage. So I tried to update Firefox to the latest version, v82. Stupidly I overwrote the old version. Turns out the latest v of Firefox won't open or install on my old Mac OS. I should have known this. Anyway, too late.

Is there any way of recovering v48? Or of downloading it again? I've read the warnings about security holes etc, and I know the risks. I would like to get Firefox running on this old Mac again if possible. All advice gratefully received! Thank you. Charlie

PS - I'm writing this from my newer Mac, with the latest OS and Firefox installed.

Shrink-to-fit for printing does not work in Firefox 82.0.2

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

Hello and good afternoon, My English is not so good, im Write with translator….

I would like to turn to you after desperately, unsuccessfully, and extremely annoyed looking for a German contact person but not finding it, because I have a problem with your browser. I like to use the Mozilla browser because it can be used very individually. But every time you do a major update, my settings are gone. This annoys you massively and tempts you to change the browser for good. And when I use Edge, I have the German Microsoft support at hand to give them my opinion on the crap they are pumping out. Different with you, there is no German support that is there for emergencies, you look for the wolf and what do you find ??? Nothing .. that sucks ... and had to be said and described here.

Now to my problem ...

I have created a possibility for myself via an additional Chrome folder and other source text (through instructions on the net, since I am only a layman) to display the symbol bar in multiple columns, which class worked. You can structure, organize and do your work quickly. That's what I love about the browser ... but since version 82 was installed, my bookmarks toolbar can only be found on the left side and one below the other ???? I just write down my frustration about it here and yesterday, without receiving any feedback so far, instead of being able to work in a structured way ... do you think that's good, good for using your browser ??? Good for the users ??? No, it's really annoying .... and by the way, this multi-column bookmark toolbar could also be a work of your community ??? Why do others have to do this for you? You always report nicely what you have changed, improved, changed !!!! What I am describing here would be a real improvement, and no matter which version was updated to, the bars would remain part of the browser !!!! And what is it now ???? On my laptop everything is just left and below each other .. annoying .... And it will be damn well possible to finally integrate this permanently into the browser ??? Otherwise you are finally rid of me and I use other browsers, and now I am curious whether someone will reply to this mail and my problem that now, after the update, probably 1,000,000,000 other users will be exactly the same, just maybe you do not write I think I don't get a fulfilling, satisfactory answer for me either!?!?!?!?

I am having a problem where Firefox functions normally, saves session history, saves log in information, etc, until something like a power outage happens where the computer is rebooted. The computer is a Mac desktop. I have gone into system preferences multiple times and selected the option to have Firefox restore session history, and when I simply close the Firefox browser, it does indeed save session history and all other data upon re-opening. However, when the computer is re-booted, Firefox then acts as though it has never been opened before, opening a totally virgin version of the browser. Why would it be wiped every time the computer is rebooted? This is a business computer and we need the log-ins to be saved for multiple different sites. Having to re-log-in and save info for each site we use after every time the computer is restarted is driving me mad.

Why doesn't Mozilla offer a Mozilla/Firefox based email address? I'm tired of google/gmail. Other options are just "OK". Would love to have an @firefox.com or @mozilla.com or @thunderbird.com email address. Maybe something clever like @foxmail.com, @mozmail.com, @thundermail.com, etc.

I'd like to make this suggestion to Mozilla, but couldn't really find a great support email to send it to.
