We have been maintaining a set of tools for Science Olympiad Code Busters (https://toebes.com/codebusters/) that generate and print tests.

When we print the tests using other browsers (Chrome, Edge) we are able to get consistent formatting and output such that the page fits on the sheet of paper and text is rendered cleanly. However, in the past year or so we have received complaints from Firefox users that it doesn't format and print well.

I was able to confirm that it indeed produces less than ideal output with Firefox and spent several hours to reduce the problem to a single self contained file that I have run through the W3c validator to ensure that there is no un-toward HTML.

I've been able to reduce it down to a small example that has everything contained in a single file: https://toebes.com/codebusters/Samples/firefox_toebes_printing_example.html

If you load the file in Firefox and then print, you will notice several issues: 1) The names of participants table ends up wider than the page. 2) The Score table on the first page is off the right hand edge of the page. 3) The header for the second page (Page 1) is on a page by itself 4) The footer for the second page (Page 1) is near the top of the third page 5) The text for the timed question appears too high on the page 6) The text for the timed question is in a slightly larger font such that it wraps early. 7) Similar problems are on the last page, with the header appearing nominally in the correct place 8) The footer for the last page is on a page by itself.

Note that I have experimented with multiple options for the print scale and margins, for purposes of comparison I set the margins to .5" all around and forced the scale to 100% in all three browsers.

Is there some other option or tweaking that I am missing to get this to work properly on Firefox?

Windows 11 computer. Since 2 days Firefox and Thunderbird have stopped working. I get a blank browser and a Thunderbird without my emails. All other browsers still work and Firefox also works on my smartphone. I have followed the suggestions on the Support website, but nothing helps. What now?

Firefox won't display background video on my website http://iconx.tech/home-1-8/ while other browsers do it seamlessly. Kindly fix this issue, or I regrettably needs to point out to my audience that webpage has been reported to break on Firefox and advise them to use Chrome or other browser.

Thanks and kind regards.

My broadand and mobile are with the same company. When logging in to Yahoo with the broadband it says there is a problem so I use the mobile hotspot to log in. Then if I switch back to using the broadband Yahoo will load and update the mail etc. It was working with the broadband after the recent browser update but has stopped again.

Have the dictionaries installed (EN-US and UA) and the spellchecking is also set on.

Everytime I close Firefox, it logs me out of all of my accounts (gmail, amazon, sites I use for work etc.) I have tried refreshing Mozilla to default settings, uninstalling and reinstalling it, changing preferences under History but nothing is working. It is frustrating as I have to go through the security checks each time I log back into my accounts which is using a lot of time. I am the only one who uses my laptop and it's password protected, so I prefer to stay logged in to frequently used sites. It's been happening for over a couple of months now and I don't know what else to try and I've gone through so many help pages and advice pages already. I may have to switch to another browser if this keeps happening, which I am reluctant to do. How can I stop Firefox from logging me out all the time?
