I notice that this problem was reported way back in 2021, but rather than being resolved it was archived ! Well I suppose that's one way of whittling down problems logged on your stack of problems.

I am using 103.0.1 on a Mac Mini running macOS Mojave.

Like you, I'm being lazy and rather than typing a complete explanation of my own, I've simple cut and pasted the description from your previous complainant.

This action is prevalent when I close the right-most tab and whammo, full screen which then causes me to have to mess around to get the window back to the size I WANT IT, and not full screen as your software would seem to want it !

        • Previous complaint ****

Using latest version of Firefox for Mac (although this problem happened with some previous versions as well).

When I have more than one tab open, and I click the X at the corner of a tab to close it, my Firefox window suddenly jumps to full screen. I have to drag the browser window from the edge to get it back to my original size. This behavior happens at other odd times as well, and the suddenly jumping to full screen gets really annoying. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this problem?

        • End of previous complaint ****

I suppose that one potential fix would be to ditch Firefox and revert to Safari, what do you reckon ? I wonder if Safari exhibits this extremely PERVERSE way of working ?

Best regards

I am sorry to invoke other browsers here, but I have switched from Chrome and found one feature to be completely intuitive there and impossible in FireFox. I have multiple profiles and want to open external links in the most recently active window. With Chrome, this was as simple as activating the window to open an external link in, then running the external link normally. In Chrome the link would open in any window that was recently active, including private windows. In FireFox it will only open in the first opened window of the first opened profile. I have not found an intuitive way of handling this in FireFox. Is there a setting or trick to it that doesn't involve rewriting URLs?

Greetings. For the past several weeks I have been unable to log in to spectrum.net to pay a bill. Currently running Firefox 103.0.1 (64-bit) for Windows on Win 10 Pro 21H2. I cleared cache and deleted cookies for spectrum.net, and performed a password reset with spectrum.net. Each login fails with: "We’re sorry, we’re unable to sign you in. Please try again later. IDID-3210."

Contacted Spectrum support, agent reset the password, and was able to log in using Chrome. I then ran Chrome and successfully logged in with the new password, and successfully changed the password and logged in again via Chrome.

Login still fails in Firefox.

Hi,

I've been using Containers in Firefox since I discovered it's existence. I've always been able to right click on a link in a search result and am then given a multitude of options. Almost invariably, I select "Open link in Personal Container". When I do so nothing happens. No new tab opens. No new instance of Firefox opens. Literally, nothing happens. However, if I click the link, the page that I'd like to view opens. I've not changed any of the settings in Firefox. I've not installed any new software. I've run several security apps and none has reported any malicious software on my system. I prefer to keep my original search page and explore search results on a different tab. Am I able to go back to that mode of working?

Hello! I switched to firefox a few months ago. It worked okay with my rollo printer (printing mailing labels) for awhile, but it's suddenly not working right. Labels print off at strange sizes and with garbled images and text. It works fine if I print from chrome or from my desktop; just not from the firefox browser. I'm wondering if there was an update recently that broke it and I'm really hoping it can be fixed, because I'd like to keep using this but I run a business and it's far too irritating to have to keep switching to chrome to print stuff... I also am positive this is a firefox issue because my partner is suddenly experiencing the same issue after switching from chrome.

Why is Firefox limiting my file name to 3-5 characters instead of the full name as the original document? My Gmail Workspace account is a business account so I need to retain proper naming conventions and original names for files, but Firefox seems to be shortening the file names, and I'm having to completely rename. I can't find any information on how to override this if it's a setting or if anyone else is having the same problem.

I am running Firefox 103.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.4.

Thanks in advance.

Like in

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224759

my twitch tab stutters when i change from a different tab to the twitch tab. I don't have it everytime, it's really inconsistent. It appears that my video moves forward some seconds. Suggestions like in the link didn't helped for me.

I tried: - set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled back to true and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false set network.http.throttle.version to 1, restart,

 set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to true again and restart -> nope

- set network.http.throttle.version to 0 and restart -> nope.

I'm really helpful for any ideas. Thanks in advance!

For maybe a month or two I have been seeing some strange behavior with Firefox closing after I close a downloaded file. Here are some examples.

Lets say I am checking my email (yahoo) and receive a video file attachment. I launch the attachment which is set ot download and automatically open my player, which is VLC. VLC launches and plays as normal. When I finish, I close VLC and find that a few seconds later my Firefox window or tab also closes.

This is not just with video files and not just from email. Same for doc files or pdf or jpg files. If it downloads and then I open it through Firefox, that tab closes once I close the third-party program.

I also tried turning off the auto-launch and just download the files, but if I start them form the downloads display in Firefox the same issue occurs. If I start explorer and browse to downloads and just launch it from there then there are no such issues.

I did notice that it only closes one tab, so if I have a dummy second tab, when the tab is closed I can use Ctrl+Shift+T to restore the previous window and continue, but it has gotten tedious to do that every time I download a file.

I did check that neither Chrome of Edge do not have such behavior.

System details. Firefox 103, Windows 10 21H2. No known major updates or changes have been made to the system to cause this change. The only extension I have is Ublock Origin, and I have tried disabling it but it did not help the problem.

Good day MOZILLA! Printing doesnt work properly with new update - seems like PDF issues...

When we print .. the preview is fine but it prints like in zoom mode.. only quarter of page... so


1. Seems to be isolated to only certain PDF's ... when printing from the print function within firefox 2. SAVING a print as "PDF" - also one of my team's when she "prints" to a PDF and saves it saves this ZOOMed in mode 3. PRINTING a PDF from WEBSITE - not downloading it, just printing straight from website - im trying to print 3 pages... it zooms in i only get a 1/4 page...of each page (so i only get partial pages that print 4. from google docs i couldnt print an "image" that i added to the DOC... more specifically a LOGO that i added onto the DOC would not print properly... it looked like zoomed in and only printed about a 1/4 of the logo... straight from the DOC... I had to download as a PDF then it printed fine... but i downloaded the PDF from google docs... not originating from the "print" function inside FIREFOX.


My trouble shoots 1. shut everything down turn back on 2. uninstall printer reinstall 3. use a different browser (BOOM EVERYTHING WORKED FINE) 4. so looked at update history for firefox sure enough started right around that time.. 5. so i reverted back to OLD VERSION... (BOOM EVERYTHING IS FINE) 6. Updated to new version again (no working again :(


Ok.. well hopefully we can get an update on this

HI, Had to fill in an encrypted form (here in the UK) from a Canadian Bank to finalise setup of a new account. On completion and attempted submission, Firefox wouldn't allow the IP address 192.168.0.1 (I'm using a D-Link USB G4 dongle) to send. It refused because the IP address is not secure. Is this a problem with the dongle (USB hardware, my G4 provider, or something in my computer, provider, or Firefox settings?

Longtime user of Firefox for online banking bill pay. Latest update broke bill pay by disabling date to pay a bill.

At bank I select vendor to pay, chose calendar to select date and now the cursor should turn to a 'hand icon' when hovering over date. It will not allow me to select a date to pay the bill. The cursor changes to a hand icon if I hover over past dates or day of week but not the date I want to pay the bill.

To make sure it isn't my bank's problem I logged on with Chrome and everything works as normal.

This was tested twice two weeks apart. For now I cannot use Firefox to pay bills.

Hope taking time to post this to Support will result in a response acknowledging problem and solution.

Thanks, Larry
