Hello. I'm running Firefox Quantum 66.0 64-bit on Mac OS 10.13.6

Articles on this help site seem to indicate that "print preview" should be the first screen when you try to print a webpage, but I can't get it to work. I've tried "command-p", and by using the menu and choosing print. Should I get a "print preview" screen when I print something? If not, where do I go to submit this as a feature request?

Thank you, Chris

"Show all History" shows named months in Farsi in 1397. This is also happening in Thuderbird since 60. came out all dates are in Farsi/ Islamic solar calendar. Someone out there must have an idea why. I am working in Afghanistan but this never happened before. H-2 correct the history dates in Firefox... and hopefully Thunderbird too.

Every time I start firefox it nags me to "Set up sync" and it's driving me nuts. I only surf the net on my PC. I'm an old guy and my arthritic fingers won't allow me to use small devices to surf the net. I have no other devices to sync to. And I NEVER WILL have other devices to sync to. I am a long term firefox user, and don't want to use any other browser - but this is driving me nuts.

BTW, I get that you want to remind me about software updates, and I am fine with this. They are important - but not this sync business.

Hi there, I was wondering if it would be possible to add an option to change the function of {ctrl+1}, {ctrl+2} etc to make it instead of going to the first and second tab, it goes to the first, then 2/9th, then 3/9th tab etc. I am aware that {ctrl+9} goes to the last tab but being able to navigate through the middle section would be a nice feature to have that could be turned on in the options section. Thanks. :)

On many pages (commercial), when I click a link to look at another page, clicking the "Go Back One Page" button results in the original page scrolling down a varying amount.

For example, I visit CNN.com. I then select an article I want to read. When reading is complete I press the "Back" button, which returns me to the original page, but also scrolls that original page, sometimes just a few lines, but also sometimes to the very bottom of the page.

This only happens on the newest (66.0) version of Firefox upgraded yesterday. It does not happen with other browsers. It does happen with Firefox started in safe mode. I also checked the carat (^) scroll in "Options" and this was not selected.

This also happens whether I use the Firefox Page Back Button, or the "Back" button on my mouse.

Thanks Doc

I have added firefox@accounts.com to my gmail verified adresses, so I don't know what's wrong. I went through the same confirmation process on my LG G6 (Android 8.0) and everthing works fine. But when I try (on many occasions) to sign in on Firefox Sync on my laptop (with the same email and login of course), I need to wait for the confirmation email, which never comes.

Hello,

officials confiscated my fast PC leaving me with a old system with following specs:

Intel Core i3-3220 (2 cores with 3,3 Ghz), Windows 10 latest version x64, 4 GB RAM, relativ new Samsung SSD, NVIDIA GT 1030 with drivers not updated in a while.

I have bad memory but I think I have this PC about 4 months and this Firefox problem since 2 months, could be totally different because I have really bad memory.

I thought it might be a extension or a setting so I started with a new profile, unfortunatelly it didn't help.

I think tab switching very often is over 3 seconds, doesn't matter much if there 5 or 15 tabs open, I use Firefox since 2002, recommended it to many people and never had such a big problem like this before.

Since the update to version 66, my themes won't stay enabled, no matter which one I choose. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the themes, (restarting firefox in between), redownloading and installing firefox itself...all to no avail. It reverts to the default theme when it finishes loading, no matter what I do. I can re-enable it manually...and, here's the odd part, it shows while firefox is loading! Anytime firefox is started, this happens, and it doesn't seem to matter what them I select. When I close firefox, it disables itself.

When I try to upload a file (multiple websites), firefox crashes without warning, doesn't open crash reporter, about:crashes reveals, "No crash reports have been submitted."

Everything is fine until I move my mouse into the popup window to select my file for upload.

This started happening summer of 2018 and is continuing. Very annoying. This is completely repeating everytime.

The same website upload works from IE/Edge or Chrome.

Hello! I'm using Windows 10 (1809) with Mozilla Firefox 66.0.1 on my PC. Since many Firefox versions I have the issue, that Firefox crashed immediately at the first start. The second start and all other subsequent starts works fine, as long I will not log off and log on again. Then Firefox crashes again on the first start (same behavior as mentioned). Here a list what I have done/checked so far: - Firefox Crash Report is not available, no crash information windows appears - Firefox is installed in the current latest version - All Windows 10 Updates are installed - Newest Nvidia Graphics driver is installed - New Firefox-Profile created (same behaviour as with my current profile mentioned above) - New Windows User created (same behaviour as with my current user mentioned above) - Firefox reinstalled, with deletion of the installation directories and profiles - Firefox hardware acceleration disabled - I switched off my Kaspersky Internet Security before the first start

Nothing helped. When I click on the Firefox Icon, a Window opens for a few milliseconds and closes immediately. (No more Firefox processes running in Task Manager). Then I click again on the Firefox icon, and the browser opens perfect and runs stable. After the session I log off/shutdown the PC. When I start the PC again the next day and log in, I have the same issue again.

Does someone has an idea how to solve this issue?

Any recommendations are very welcome! Thanks in advance, Simon

Hi, I signed for a master password in Firefox. When the window appears to ask me to insert it, I do but it doesn't work. Then I try to reset it with this link: chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul into but it doesn't work either as nothing appears after hitting enter. I want to get rid of this annoying pop up window as I'm sure I'm entering the right password but it's always denied. Thank you very much!

I was tricked into downloading a fake flashplayer update that included the adware "pro search tip." I've been able to uninstall it from my other browsers and firefox and it doesn't appear anywhere on my machine. I also used sophos to scan my machine, which deleted it. But it still redirects my default search engine to itself in firefox.

I have https everywhere activated, and ad blocker as well.
