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.

In my last version of FF, my Mac was able to speak selected text in FF. Speaking text works in all other applications, but not in my updated FF 80.0.1. Although... if I select text on a FF page to speak, I can only hear the spoken FF text when I click over to another open application. When I click back to the FF page, speaking the text stops. If I click back to the other app like TextEdit... then my Apple Speech continues to read the text selected on the FF page. The only way to hear any selected text on a FF page, is to select the text, use my Apple speech command button and then click over to another open application, until the spoken text in FF is finished speaking. This is not convenient. This issue only started with FF 80.0.1.

How can this be fixed, so my Mac's speech commend will read selected text on a FF page? I use Apple Speech command to read back my longer posts I’m getting ready to post on a webpage to make sure it makes sense.

In short... I can no longer use Apple's speech command to read selected text on a FF 80.0.1 page. This only started happening in this new 80.0.1 Firefox.

Take a look at the attachment, and you'll see a ? charactrer in the place of an " character. I see this happening with many different websites, but only in Firefox for some reason. Often times, firefox shows an entire block of text replaced with question marks, and then it snaps back with maybe just a few showing. I run Apple 10.15.6 Catalina. This may be a system issue on my end, but I was wondering if anyone has any clue as to why it does this, and how to correct it. Don't have this issue with any other browsers, and my firefoz is up to date, running 81.0 I think. Says it is up to date.

Why am I now having Bing show up as my default search engine when opening Firefox? I don't want Bing but can't find any way to remove it. My settings are such that Yahoo should show upon opening the browser and Google is set as my default search engine. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, check settings, etc. but I still get the damn Bing showing up as my home page and search engine. Any help would be appreciated.

Recently I needed to print shipping labels direct through Firefox. The 1st time was trying to print prepaid postage labels from the Royal Mail website, the 2nd time was trying to print return labels through Ebay. Both times printing failed - I would get my printer screen up but I would not be able to print. If I used Chrome based browser then I could print normally. This makes me think that there may be a problem with my Firefox settings. Can anyone help please?

P.S. Currently using version 80.0.1 firefox which I believe is the latest version.

I'm trying to print this page (https://eecaunt.github.io/kanji-sakuin.html), but firefox only prints out the first page, then stops. (Here's a small test version of the same page: https://eecaunt.github.io/kanji-sakuin-small.html)

You can see in the picture that it gets cut off.

Here's the pdf of the picture: https://mega.nz/file/6wwBUIaC#swNET5o7oGArqOuhxLqGhsPKElxznIe2aqvI0TFKO5E

If you see weird overlapping text, then just reload the page. idk why firefox sometimes doesnt finish loading the page…

As an aside: How do I keep the local links (that are in the webpage) in the PDF that Firefox generates?

I finally updated firefox after months of it popping up. Now my printer settings are stuck in the last setting i used(brother printer), I can change it to my DYMO printer, but it defaults back to the Brother printer on every new print I do. This is eating up a lot of time changing 3 settings on every print, 50 prints a day. Taking me 5x longer on each label.

How can i make firefox keep my current/last used settings. I'd rather not have to use Chrome browser.

TIA

Over the last few weeks Firefox is not printing statements correctly from my online bank. Other browsers e.g. Safari, Microsoft Edge are working fine. I have Firefox on a MacBookPro (El Capitan) and a PC (Windows 10) and both have exactly the same problem. The image is far too large for the page and much text is lost. Switching to landscape doesn't help. It appears that something has changed in Firefox recently which is causing this. Thanks

For the past few days, when I use my email to send a message to a new recipient, I see "the email has been copied" written in a green rectangle at the menu bar. As soon as I get into the part where I write, it turns grey-black. It is then impossible to write. It is also impossible to remove this anomaly: all that remains is to close and start again to try to get through it!

good day! I really like your browser and enjoy working with it. I am a website developer and I really like your tools for webmasters!

But recently I have encountered a critical problem! I have a site on my local server (Denwer WAMP) that I'm working on.

I make changes to the site's css and see how it is displayed in firefox.

But there are no changes-through the inspector you can't see that I changed something in the css. At the same time, if I open the same site in another browser, for example, in Chrome, all the changes are visible. And firefox does not display until you completely clear the site you are working on from the history, because even a forced update via ctrl+shift+r does not give results!

look at the picture - an empty block appeared in chrome, but in firwefox it simply does not show css
