On multiple websites I visit, picture in picture happens automatically when I scroll past a video or click another section of a page. I find it highly annoying and distracting. I would like to disable it completely. How do I do this? I'd appreciate an answer that isn't too technical. Thanks.

Hi all, yesterday I was trying to send an email (yahoo mail) (which I have used exclusively for years) and autocomplete was not working. Puzzled, I checked my contacts to see if the person had somehow been deleted, and to my surprise - I had NO contacts. Oddly, they were all there if I checked "Yahoo Classic View." Naturally I assumed it was a Yahoo issue, but got nowhere trying to look into it. Finally it occurred to me to try opening mail in Chrome and lo and behold, all my contacts were present, regardless of which view of mail I chose.

I really don't want to switch to Chrome because of mail, and although Classic View does work in FF, Classic doesn't have the autocomplete feature - which was the original issue, so it wouldn't solve my issue to revert to it.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Should I refresh FF and lose all my themes and add-ons and have to find them all again, or just uninstall and reinstall? Or is there a simpler way?

Thanks in advance you guys! (Also I tried to upload pics, but they won't load for some reason, I let it run about five minutes at least.)

There is a certain website that I have to visit often. I usually type the first few letters of the URL into search bar but, annoyingly, there's another website with almost exactly the same URL. Firefox always autofills the wrong URL and I always end up getting directed to the wrong site. Is there a way to prevent firefox from autofilling that URL and change it to the correct one?

Printing Problems with Firefox

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.

Running Windows 10, FF 80.0.1 64 bit. Windows reports the last update for FF was 9/1. Today is 9/17, so FF has been running for two weeks since the update before this problem showed up

I booted up this morning and FF and all extensions were working without problems. I then opened an html attachment from an email, which, was sent to FF to open. Instead of opening in a new tab in the already open FF window, I got a pop up saying that FF couldn't open because there was another instance running. I chose the button to close the already running instance, and the new instance launched with the html file. However all my extensions were summarily disabled and there is no option in the Manage Your Extensions window turn any of them back on. I am, as a result, using Chrome to ask this question, since that's the only way I can run my PW manager.

Anybody have any ideas how to fix this?

I had **two (2)** Firefox browsers. They both worked fine.

Each one had links to web pages that worked fine.

There was an automatic start last night - and only one browser returned. The browser had different bookmarks. (**All** of those bookmarks aren't useful.)

How do I get both Firefox browsers back after there is an automatic start?

hey there folks :) so I got the email about your new extension RegretsReporter...I think it's a phenomenal project so I have of course intalled the extension on chrome. I haven't found the recommendation on Youtube problematic it's more about the ads that they recommend for me (not the ones that I have to view in order to see a video). Rather the one's they display just below the video when viewing can the RegretsReporter also deal with those?

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

when searching in the address bar at the top, the links appear to the right, misaligned because of the page titles

for me, the link is what i use to figure out which page i want, while the title is really hard to figure it out, having the link on the left would make it alot easier and faster to figure out which to click

(in the upload, the top one is firefox, the bottom is chromium, i need the order chromium uses)

Hi, I have had a very bad change in my computer, where my system was removed. I could not get it back and was helped to get some things back. In my computer, many things are very different to view things, so makes anything I can do is missing I need to have my Bookmarks, lost on the 16th. They will help me a great deal. Is there anyway to get my original Bookmarks List?

My computer shut down and with it went one tab. When I next opened firefox, onetab was not working at all. The icon was gone, everything was gone. I had to reset firefox completely and add all add ons again to get it working at all. I backed everything up before doing this. I have a tab hoarding problem and lost links to around 5000 tabs. I've got the previous session/old firefox data saved externally, plus old profiles. Is there any way to get my lost tabs back?

TLDR I need to extract my one tab data from my previous firefox folder which is saved separately. Please help.

Why Mozilla-Developer-Network/MDN Needs Access Into My GitHub Or Google Account To Login !? & Why MDN Does Not Allow To Use Mozilla Account Based Login ? isn't it Violation Of Privacy ?

Hi, i absolutely do-not-like & do-not-approve that Mozilla Dev Network MDN https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ is FORCING/COERCING us/users TO GAIN (READ+WRITE OR ANY-OTHER) ACCESS INTO MY/USER'S GITHUB OR GOOGLE ACCOUNT to login into MOZILLA MDN site. This is clear Anti-privacy & Anti-Security activity, VIOLATION of PRIVACY-RIGHTS.

Any users can create an account in Mozilla here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/accounts/

So WHY MDN does not allow to use that to login/access into MDN site ?! and instead FORCING users to use GitHub/Google account access based login ?

Why should i give "MOZILLA", a 3rd-party, VARIOUS-TYPES-OF-ACCESS into my Google/GitHub account ? !! !! !! !! just to view documents from Mozilla developer network site, Or to get Firefox Dev Tools, etc, etc !!

my accounts are used for my control over my projects & to have my control over my private data/emails. even a tiny moment of access into any such private account means PRIVACY is LOST, & NOT-PRIVATE anymore.

Mozilla can send a code into my email & i/user can post that code to Mozilla, to prove i'm/user-is the owner of the email-adrs ... and for entire world , this type of proof is sufficient (though not perfect).

So WHY MOZILLA IS NOT FIXING THIS/THESE ISSUES ?

If Mozilla need to send notification to me, it can use my email-address. if Mozilla needs to add/notify in GitHub in my projects, then it can use its own GitHub account to do so with specific direct MENTION to user(by using user's github-ID) , or it can send me/user specific code over email that i or a user can add myself/themselves. A user can also give Mozilla-bot a membership in their Github project to publish, or notify something. etc. etc. there is always alternative & PRIVACY-RESPECTING & better-security-practice solutions , w/o giving/having FULL-or-PARTIAL access into someone's GitHub/Google account.
