Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

No Little Images on Google Images

All of a sudden, starting a few days ago, when Google Images showed the results of a search, it no longer displayed little pictures with them.

Here are some additional facts:

(1) The missing pictures are still there; you just can't see them. By that, I mean that if you use the mouse to hover over where the picture really is, the cursor changes its form to let you know that it is now over something clickable. And, indeed, if you click there, the program opens a window with the image in question in it.

(2) As far as I can tell, this is happening only with Google Images. For example, YouTube is still correctly displaying the little images for its suggested videos.

(3) I first encountered this behavior on my XP machine, so I thought it might be an XP-related problem. But then I went to my newer machine and discovered that exactly the same thing was happening under Windows 10.

(4) Then I thought it might be a Google Images problem. But then I went to Google Images using other browsers, on both my old machine and my new one, and Google Images worked perfectly normally with those two browsers.

(5) So that meant that it must be some sort of Firefox problem. I waited for it to be fixed by Mozilla, but it wasn't. Then I searched both the Web and the Mozilla "knowledge base" to see what other people were saying about this problem. There wasn't a word about it in either place.

(6) Therefore, I can only conclude that it is a My House problem. But even that doesn't seem to me to make any sense. Here's why:

  • (a) My two computers are running totally different versions of Firefox -- 52.9.0 (32-bit) "ESR" on the old machine [Mozilla won't let anybody running XP have a more recent version], and 80.0.1 (64-bit) on the new one.
  • (b) The machines cannot talk to each other. (They are not networked.)
  • (c) One might guess that some update arrived at both machines and that, regardless of operating systems, that update doesn't handle Google Images properly. But here are three problems with that theory:
    • (i) The Firefox application on the old machine receives no updates any more. The folks at Mozilla have been clear about that. (And it's confirmed by looking at the creation and modification dates on the files in its directory.)
    • (ii) On the new machine, Firefox tells me when it has an update that it wants to install. It had not done so shortly before this new behavior arose.
    • (iii) If the latest, updated version of Firefox 80.0.1 (the version on my new machine) suddenly cannot handle Google Images if the program is being run under Windows 10, I wouldn't be the only person who had been hit by this problem: there would be some comments about it on the Web or in the "knowledge base"

I am totally flummoxed. I've tried clearing the cache, turning off popup-blocking, opening Firefox in its Safe Mode, etc. Nothing helps.

I'm using Gmail in Firefox 80.0.1. When there is a Word or .pdf attachment on a gmail message, clicking on the attachment opens the dialogue box attached below. Despite checking the box, "Do this automatically for files like this from now on," the box continue to pop up with the next attachment on another email. Is there a way to make it "automatic?"

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.

I have designated that opening a new tab opens Google. I would like the cursor to be in the search box on the page not in the address box. I'm sure this is new behavior for Firefox. It's annoying to start typing and then realize i'm in the address box typing in the middle of the address. How can I change it?

Pop-up message: "this page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved"

It happens often: I am typing into a text input form on a website, and the pop-up (see attachment) appears for no apparent reason. In other words, I did not deliberately try to abandon my text entries, but for some reason the browser believes I have. Perhaps this is down to the overuse of shortcuts and touchpad "gestures" in my Macbook? I don't know why it happens, but it does. My question only concerns what happens AFTER the pop-up appears.

The pop-up has two buttons: "Stay on page", and the DEFAULT "Leave Page".

I have lost hours of work (text entry) because the DEFAULT is to "Leave Page". Again, this may be "physically" due to the twitchy Apple products I use, but it could be avoided if the DEFAULT were set to "Stay on page".

That is my first question: How do I change the DEFAULT to "Stay on page"?

I am told that this pop-up is the product of JavaScript running in my browser. That's all well and good, but it's not clear to me whose script this is.

My second question: What is the SOURCE of the JavaScript producing the pop-up; i.e. is this sourced by Mozilla, or is it sourced by the website creators?

Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

Yahoo Mail contacts disappeared when using FF, but show up when using Chrome

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.)

In great trepidation, I deleted history and emptied the cache. Then, the trouble started: the menu bar WILL NOT OPEN WITHOUT HOVERING AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN. Both of the 'school solutions' failed: not in full screen mode and it is the selected or focused screen. Customization also failed. The Menu bar DOES NOT APPEAR as one of the possibilities. This is on a MacBookPro which is up to date. the FF is also up to date.

Hello, MAC OSX. Firefox 80.0.1

Site is : https://meteofrance.com There is a button "Ajouter une ville". It is supposed to scroll down an input field. Worked until one week ago, does no longer work. Works on all browsers, safe FIREFOX.

Site manager says one week ago they upgraded to https. This + some configuration of Firefox on my Mac is the cause of the button not working. They say.

I have no idea where to start looking for (checked TLS level though, it is max 4 min 3).

Does someone have an idea.

Thanks very much.

The main focus of my issue is that Firefox's sudden new behaviour of it opening normally when it launches, with my previous tabs remembered as I set is immediately followed by the browser quickly re-launching within seconds. While this isn't a big concern when I open Firefox from its shortcut, it's become a serious issue when I launch Firefox from an external URL, like from an email, or when viewing an original picture posted in a Discord chat channel.

When the relaunch happens, it's always without the tab that caused Firefox to launch automatically on clicking said external URL. I realize that I need to do an addon check, but that's a long process, so I was rather hoping this was a known issue that someone knows the solution to, or what addon is involved and how.

I noticed recently with FF80.0.1 (64-bit) on W10, that when a page is loading there is a 1-2 second delay on page icon loading with default egg timer shape before proper page icon loads. Done numerous antivirus scans / SSD checks / optimise etc - no change. Seems to be a page loading bug of the appropriate icon for that page.
