Hello there,

since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

With best regards.

I can't find a way to enable natural scroll with the touchpad - down movement on the touchpad means the screen moves down - in Firefox. I've gone into about:config and set mousewheel.default.delta_multiplier_y to -100, but that only affects the mouse, not the trackpad.

I'm trying to completely turn off the address search bar function in Firefox. It' so annoying! I go to google. Start to type in the search bar on the page but all my typing ends up in the address bar. So frustrating! If I wanted to search from the address bar I wouldn't have gone to Google to do it. I DON'T want to search from the address bar EVER! So please don't say 'why don't you just..x,y or z'. I've managed to turn off all the address bar suggestions and whatnot with about a dozen different setting which is ridiculous. Turning off the rich results should fix everything but it doesn't. No mater what I try I cannot get text to appear in the Google search bar. So basically Firefox has stolen the functionality of the Google webpage for me. I've been using Firefox for a long time but lately I'm been questioning why a lot. Anyway, any suggestions to stop Firefox from hijacking my search would be appreciated.

I'm currently in my vacation home and I don't have home internet here. I'm connecting through my mobile phone using limited mobile data. and I selected not to download updates because it keeps updating itself like twice in a week and every MB counts in limited data plans especially if it's just 4 GB total for each month.

But now every time I open the firefox it showing download latest update popup like an annoying virus on the top right corner where 3 horizontal lines are located.

I checked the internet and previously this was an option in it's settings. Then this option removed and only hidden behind the about:config . and now it's completely removed from about:config either.

The only reason I switched from chrome to firefox was because google became an absolute dictator lately and all it's changes was to limit down my accessibility. I switched to firefox becuse it doesn't backstab it's users and they give the choice to it's users rather than dictating it like dictators. So did I make a mistake switching to firefox? Is firefox becoming just like chrome now? or is there (hoping so much) and option given us to turn off the notifications as well?

Hi all,

I use Firefox. On https://www.archivesspace-pi.nl/repositories/11/archival_objects/42349 we want to show the pdf in the browser but, unfortunately, this doesn't work (the downloading of the pdf functions well, by the way). Trying to solve the problem I did download the PDF-reader, but it still does'nt work. (In Chrome and Edge the showing of pdf's is no problem). What do I have to do?

Thanks for the help/advice!

I have an issue where Firefox is cutting off the lower half of each page (blank) when I print with reduced scale. It is an issue that only occurs in Firefox—I have tried another browser. I have tried three printers and it causes the issue on all of them. The issue occurs on all web pages I have tried. I have reset the print settings in Firefox, run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, and refreshed Firefox.

Print preview will show the pages correctly with reduced size, but when printed, the bottom half of each page is blank. However, in print preview, if I change the settings to only print the first page, the preview will then show the first page with the bottom half missing.

I am wondering if this problem is caused by the latest Windows update. That is the last change to the computer I am aware of before this printing problem occurred.

Anything else I can try to resolve this issue?

Good day , For some unknown reason to me my HP printer will not connect to WI FI using Firefox but will connect if using Edge (which by the I hate and resist using at all costs) . I have tried trouble shooting to the best of my limited ability via HP and online , but to no avail. It was working with Firefox the last time I needed to use it, but not now. Hopefully someone can help me , but I have very limited computer skills and a lot of the short forms acronyms and computer gobbly gook baffle me . I ask that with any answer please .........KISS (keep it simple stupid) it . Please no one take offense to the term (KISS) , I did not come up with it , but it seems the simpleness has left the building these days.

Thank you Ken

Super weird issue that just started out of the blue the other day. When printing out of Firefox (I do this A LOT because I use online bookkeeping software), the right edge of the print gets about 3/4" cut off, even when I have margins set to "no margins" and scaling set as "fit to page width." I noticed this while printing to my Brother B/W laser printer. Today I tried printing to my Canon COLOR laser printer and it prints fine, nothing is cut off. I changed the Color Mode for the same Canon printer to B/W and the print gets cut off. So, apparently whenever I print to a B/W printer or set the Color Mode to B/W, the image gets cut off. When Color Mode is set to Color, it prints fine. Any ideas how I can fix this? It's super annoying. I want to be able to print to my B/W laser printer. Thanks!

Conclusion is that the problem is in Firefox. Suggestions please.

After BIOS update and replacing the CPU (9900k stepping R0) and updating the drivers for the video card from nVidia (without which it refused to work), this started like this. There were no other changes in the system at all. In addition to the impossibility to close the application normally and the full load of one processor core, as can be seen from the Task Manager, there are no other problems, everything works as usual. I've tried disabling all extensions (there are only a few of them). I also turned off hardware acceleration. I didn't reset the browser settings, because so far I really don't want to do this unless absolutely necessary. Also, my browser sent a dozen reports with logs.

I am trying to understand why this is happening and change the settings that I made changes to (as far as I remember), but nothing seems to help at the moment.
