The ability to edit and customize the headers and footers for printing was one of my main reasons for switching from Chrome to Firefox. Now I can't find where to do this. I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

With "print on both sides" checked, the "backside" of each page is printed inverted top to bottom. I believe this began after the latest update. I'd like to revert to the old, more conventional, and (for me, at least) easier-to-use older system.

Hello, I recently purchased a SSD and I am using it. I was shocked to see that my SSD's TBW was 800GB in just 2 months whereas I never write any big files and then I realize that Firefox was eating my TBW and I have disabled some features in "about:config".

Those features are: browser.cache.disk.enable = false browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl = false browser.cache.memory.enable = true


But disabling those things did not helped me. I am trying to save my TBW. I want Firefox to never write anything in my SSD. I want to disable cache forever. I want Firefox to store all cache in Memory. I know it will take more internet bandwidth but no problem for me.

Can I tweak these settings in about:config?

browser.cache.disk.capacity = 0 or 1 (Not use if 0 means unlimited or disable in Firefox so I am using 1 and please tell me how what does 0 does) browser.cache.disk.content_type_media_limit = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.enable = false browser.cache.disk.free_space_hard_limit = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.free_space_soft_limit = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_chunks_memory_usage = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_entry_size = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_priority_chunks_memory_usage = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.metadata_memory_limit = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.preload_chunk_count = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled = false browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl = false browser.cache.offline.capacity = 1 browser.cache.offline.enable = false browser.cache.offline.storage.enable = false

Can I create a new setting like browser.cache.disk.disable = true?

I'm using a Surface Pro 7, running Win10H. Firefox had a brief period when I first installed it where the on screen keyboard would appear and work, that stopped after a few hours and has not worked since. I fiddled with the settings on both Firefox and my surface, though nothing has changed. Un/re-installing did not help, thought it could reset something. Any fixes or advice would be greatly appreciated.

For clarification, the Accessibility Menu on-screen keyboard does work, but the tablet-specific larger keyboard does not function. It does open and type in other applications.

I recently upgraded from a Dell XPS laptop to a Dell XPS Inspiron laptop and had my old laptop cloned to the new one. There's been only one change noted when using the new laptop -- whenever I have Firefox open, and want to print the page displayed, the File menu no longer offers the option "Print Preview", which I used all the time on my old laptop. Any idea why it's disappeared, and how to get it back? Thanks.

To Mozilla Management_Please stop the constant updates>Why do we have to update constantly? ie: SteveKessler SteveKessler 11/20/14, 3:27 PM

We run a very nice internet business and 5 computers keep it running strong however we are continuing to update almost weekly. It has become a hassle to use Firefox. When we first started using Firefox years ago we might get an update 2 times a year now it appears to be 2 times a month. Please let us know why and if there is something we can do to change this. Updating and make unnecessary changes is very costly to our business and if it continues we may have to change browsers. We love Firefox but the updates must stop be so frequent. We do not have the time to keep updating nor do we want any computer updating without someone watching it. We do not want automated updates. On update was the worst when you made all the unnecessary changes. It took me all day to all 5 computers to look alike so everyone could use them no matter where they work. Please consider yourself a top browser and not a fly by night. This is a professional company so please act like it, walk like and turn this around. I am wondering if someone from Microsoft has started to help you?

SteveKessler SteveKessler Question owner 11/20/14, 4:22 PM

Two different answers to one question. I am asking why does Firefox constantly make updates? Why not leave everything alone? I understand if it is necessary but about 95% of the changes are b/c someone thinks they are helping. It is broken so please stop updating. If there needs to be an update due to hacker, i.e. then okay but all these other updates is not making it any better. People think if we make this change it will help others when all it does is make us keep updating and we do not use the new idea. We just want a fast browser without the gimmicks. Please consider that you already had a great browser and leave it alone.

SteveKessler SteveKessler Question owner 11/20/14, 6:56 PM

We're not interested in making changes when nothing is broken. You had Notice the word HAD the best browser on the internet! Now it is another browser competition for what? Just leave it alone. It does not need unnecessary upgrades. Making changes to make changes is not improvement. Keep it up and you will run off everyone. I know more about this than you think. Worked 35 years in this industry and know more than most will ever learn. I know if you keep changing just to change it will break down and you will not get the people back. You are not justifying the means and customers are very finicky. You are very close to losing it all. Too many people trying to show they know something without counting the cost.

Firefox will not stay logged in to some accounts online such as youtube where I will have to hit "log in" repeatedly and each time it opens the next page it's a crapshoot if it will show up as if I was logged in or not and if I click to something else it will log me out again. even when it shows a username like it's logged in, the customizable tool bars will be seen as if I'm not. This goes beyond youtube as even in areas where I'm trying to log in for business it does the same thing to the point it is impossible to use.

This started a while back but and I've just dealt with the problem because I couldn't find a fix. I've tried clearing the history/cookies/caches, nothing changed. I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox but it persists. No changes I've made with the settings has done anything.
