Currently, I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Fedora 31. Recently, it's started opening most, but not all links in a new window instead of the current one. Not on all sites, but most. As a pair of examples, it opens links to articles on gasbuddy.com in a new window but not on Slashdot, and until a few months ago, it only opened a new window if I right-clicked and selected New Window from the context menu. I'd like to get the old behavior back, as this is quite inconvenient.

I am now seeing the new Firefox print screen when I try to print something from a webpage, but there is something critical missing from that screen. What happened to the "Simplify Page" option?? That, to me, was an incredibly valuable option within Firefox, given that I have to do a lot of printing from websites. Is that option now hidden somewhere in the new print screen, or has it been removed? For me, given what I do, that option is something of a deal-breaker. If Firefox has removed it, I may have to begin using a different browser.

I use `Always ask you where to save files` when download and every time I download something they're always in different places.

The problem is if I rename the file when I forget to rename it before I press the download, Firefox says the file is missing and refuses to tell me where did I save that file. The `Open Contained Folder` is greyed out and I can't find any location related text.

How can I find where did I download my files?

And why `Open Contained Folder` has to be greyed out?

Hello, I have problem with YouTube. When I am clicking "Share" button I got screen with infinite loading. The same issue happens when I want to open menu by clicking on my avatar. On dev console I am getting a POST error: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Status/401

I tried to: - clean Google/youtube cookies and stored cache; - clean then all cookies; - relaunch Firefox with all addons disabled; - enter via private mode with/without addons; - flush dns on dev console; - disable completely antivirus; - change DNS.

What is interesting, that problem happens only when I am logged in to my Google (YouTube) account and only on Firefox. Even on private mode it works until I do not log in to my account.

I would be very grateful for help.

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

Several days ago I've noticed that YouTube navigation menu on the left started to disappear. See pic-1. It may apper after several tries to open it in other tabs, but all in all mostly not visible. The second and the biggest problem - I can't log out from YouTube. See Pic-2.

I fully deleted Firefox, created new clean profile without any add-on etc, and tried to log in to YouTube - it didn't help. So I think it's not needed to mention all other basic things like cookie deleting etc were done. Problem is always here.

Hello, I recently upgraded Firefox to the latest 82.0 (64-bits) version. I am quite sure that with that version a new problem appeared by which the Firefox windows have no border except the window title bar, and cannot be grabbed for resizing. I believe it has to do with Firefox because other windows doe not have this problem, and the firefox window has the menu "File|Edit|etc." inside the window title bar. The versions are: - Firefox see above - Compiz version : 1:0.9.12.3 - Ubuntu 16.04LTS - gtk2-engines-murrine : 0.98.2-0

Incidentally, when starting firefox on the cli, I receive the error messages copied below. Thanks for the great work, firefox must continue and grow. Regards, xgiannak

How to avoid sync getting polluted with old data from old client machine

I wanted to follow on from the likes of: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1220898 - the situation where you turn on some very old device that hasn't synced in a long time, and the data on it is so old that Firefox Sync decides to merge it with your latest sync data, instead of replacing it with the latest sync data

Unfortunately an avid Firefox user, if they find that they've turned on an old device and its polluted their sync with stale data, will find a bigger problem than that post suggests. I have Firefox and Firefox Sync installed/setup on a number of PCs and Phones. I turned on an old machine, I think in July 2020, and polluted my sync with old bookmarks. Now Marc had some good advice here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212089#answer-1099270

> For what it's worth, another reliable way to remove all data from the server is to visit about:preferences#sync, disable one of the data-types (say, bookmarks) and perform a manual sync - all bookmarks will then be removed from the server. Re-enabling and re-syncing will re-upload all your local bookmarks

So I found this process worked to restore a previous good set of bookmarks before the polluted sync: 1) on any PC, perform the above to remove the online sync 2) disable all syncing on that PC 3) restore previous known-good bookmarks 4) re-enable syncing

But then, any one of your other devices, which all synced the polluted sync, will just sync the polluted sync back to the server again, which will then sync it back to all devices: so my polluted sync returned again, everywhere. In particular, I found that any phone you have syncing will keep the bad sync running and cause it to be re-synced everywhere, until you uninstall Firefox from that phone. So the following is how I finally managed to return to my pre-bad-sync state (which had to be done in exactly this order):

1) uninstall Firefox on any phone 2) disconnect any PCs from the internet 3) on your 'newest' PC, do the above 4 steps to restore good sync on that machine and to the online sync server 4) on any other PCs, copy the JSON bookmarks file you used in the last step to those PCs and restore it to those also, reconnect them after (since they will no longer pollute the good online sync once their data has been made good) 5) reinstall Firefox on all phones and set up each to sync again

As you can imagine, this was quite time consuming to get right, and I now live in fear of turning on an old PC (in particular we don't know HOW stale an old sync has to be to cause this problem, so its a constant worry!). And note that bookmarks was all I cared about: I don't know what I would have done if I also cared about other sync data

This is a complex issue, hence I want to limit what I'm asking here. I just want to know the best/easiest way of avoiding this happening again. How about this: If we are, perhaps, safe to assume that any PC which has synced in the past year is 'safe' from this problem, maybe the easiest solution is to treat any PC which hasn't been turned on for longer than 1 year with kid gloves? If so, what's the simplest thing to do when turning on any such PC? The first step is surely to disconnect it from the internet before Firefox starts up, and then what? (remove Firefox entirely? restore good JSON? delete user profile? etc etc - I'd like to know what are the exact steps I take, in order, so maybe a bullet list (I have both Macos and Windows machines, and an Iphone and an Android phone). I'd also like to know if this issue is likely to affect phones in just the same way: say I turn on an old phone because I have to take my new phone to be repaired: is this just as dangerous as turning on an old PC?

I'd welcome any other thoughts on this issue also of course. (Note I haven't shared data about my OS/Browser etc since by its very nature this issue is cross-platform and spans numerous versions of FF)

Hi folks,

I use Autohotkey to automatically expand things for me (auto-replace, basically). E.g., if I want it to type out my email I type, "myemail" and then it erases that and types emailname@emailprovider.com for me; if I type myadd it will type out my street address, and many many more things to make my life easier (vision impaired and by using these "hotstrings" I can ensure I don't mistype and then miss it in proofreading).

Sometime last week (I think I restarted my computer on Wednesday and there Were updates as well as Windows 10 asking me a browser-related question and I declined to change my default browser at that time) Firefox stopped allowing those hotstrings to work And I can't select, "log in with Google" (or is it Gmail? Whichever . . .) any more, either. The option is greyed out. Epic Games' launcher has that option and it tells me it will launch my web browser once I've clicked the "log in with G..." link (Firefox can't grey it out there since it's a different program) but Firefox does seem to be blocking the web page launch request.

I have tried turning off my add ons, one by one (and refreshing the page after each), to narrow it down, but none of those appear to be the culprit. I use Malwarebytes and Avira (basic, not Prime) and neither of those seem to be responsible, either. I have Windows Defender as well. My "hotstrings" are working in Chrome so I am Guessing it's to do with Firefox specifically and that bit of information might rule out MB, Avira, and Win Defender altogether. I tried a Private Window for fun and it's also blocking my macro (hotstrings).

Any ideas of other things I can try? I don't want to have to use Chrome but if I can't get this resolved I'll have to bite the bullet and use the browser that helps with my eyesight.
