I'm posting this as a question because other ones on the topic are closed for comments

Anyway, I seem to have found the solution - sync clipboards using ClipIt (http://clipit.rspwn.com/) or some other clipboard manager

My case - hopefully FF devs find this useful: 1. Paste works - I paste screenshots, text copied from terminal, and other stuff 2. Copy text from FF page, or hitting a copy button on a page, works only partially - I can paste in other GUI apps but not in terminal

   The snippet does appear in ClipIt. When I select it, it becomes available to paste in terminal

3. Copy text from FF address box works - I can paste anywhere

The recommended solution from FF support is to "reset", which means "factory reset" - this doesn't solve the problem and kills all yous addins, bookmartks, settings, etc. FF support stop suggesting stupid solutions!

I have also played with the settings - there was something there wrt copy/paste - it worked for a few hours

My guess is that Firefox is doing something wrong when placing things in the clipboard. Placing in the wrong clipboard or maybe you should place it in multiple clipboards and please make it configurable in case you screw it.

Hello,

At first I thought it was a tired Arch Manjaro install that was perhaps the issue. Now that I've done fresh installs of Arch (Manjaro & Arco), Ubuntu (KDE, Gnome, & XFCE) on both my workstation and laptop, I can say it's not my Hardware or OS. So why is Firefox crashing all the time? Mid chat conversations, etc. Again, fresh OS install and zero Add-Ons installed. I can't use Firefox, even if I badly wanted too when it tanks on me all the time.

I am using Firefox since several years with a PrimaryPassword for saved passwords. With Windows 10 it is used since a year or so. I regularily kept Firefox open for several days, but had no issue with it. But since some weeks firefox is asking for the Primary Password every day. This is quite anoying. After entering the password again, it continues to work, but will ask for the password on the next day again. Another post talks about a possible issue with some specific virus scanners, but I am just using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which ships with Windows 10. I did not add any Add-on recently, so I suppose an issue with one of the latest Firefox updates (current version is 90.0.2 64-bit on Windows 10). Thanks for any tips.

My situation is probably unique but basically, I have a new computer. On my old computer I had a fair few windows open. Because of a lot of different issues (bad battery, no working charger etc.), I have access to the hard drive of my old computer but I can't turn it on anymore and it died before I could reopen most of the windows on my new computer. I'm able to use the hard drive as an external hard drive to transfer everything to the new computer as needed So, I know it's possible to get back bookmarks by transferring the files. I also know that there is a recovery file somewhere in the firefox folder which is used when hitting "Restore previous session" to get back the previous windows Would that mean it's possible to find the file from the old computer's hard drive and move it to the same folder on the new computer to use for the restore function in a similar was as the bookmarks?

I have been using Firefox for a number of years.

I primarily use a Sony Vaio PC using Windows 7.

I got an automatic update of Firefox Version 90.0.2 on 7/22/2021.

It is not working very well. Opening new tabs are hard. Will not close tabs very well, leaving unused space on top. Different sites show up on another sites tab. Worst of all, this new version is a memory hog, with me eventually having to reboot the PC to clear memory until the next time.

Can you please help?

Thanks in advance,

Joe Lisak

I updated Firefox yesterday and since then everything in Firefox is blurry, except for some drop down menu's for some reason. Everything else is... I use two 4k 60hz monitors. On both of these they are blurry. It also seems like everything moves up and down a pixel when giving input (like keyboard or mouse inputs). I added an image of the blurriness. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Note: This is the only software experiencing this problem.

Best regards

Good day , For some unknown reason to me my HP printer will not connect to WI FI using Firefox but will connect if using Edge (which by the I hate and resist using at all costs) . I have tried trouble shooting to the best of my limited ability via HP and online , but to no avail. It was working with Firefox the last time I needed to use it, but not now. Hopefully someone can help me , but I have very limited computer skills and a lot of the short forms acronyms and computer gobbly gook baffle me . I ask that with any answer please .........KISS (keep it simple stupid) it . Please no one take offense to the term (KISS) , I did not come up with it , but it seems the simpleness has left the building these days.

The print functionality has changed a lot in the latest versions of Firefox and is causing me problems so I wonder if there are settings or add-ons which I've missed which would help.

Specifically:

1) The preview is no longer full screen. This makes it difficult to adjust a view, of say a map, so that the area printed is precisely what is wanted. The full screen preview in older versions of Firefox made this very easy. Is there any way of getting a full screen print preview page?

2) Previously it was possible to set custom headers and footers on a printed page. This was ideal for labelling printouts is a descriptive way, so useful for future reference, and enabled the removal of unwanted information. In the present version of Firefox all I seem to be able to do is switch printing of default headers/footers on and off. Is there a way of customising headers and footers that I've missed?

Thanks

I have the Simplify Page option set back up on my Print Preview screen and it appears to be working fine on the screen, but when I try to print the page it cuts a bunch off on the right and on the bottom of the page. It doesn't appear to be a marginal issue. I think it's something with the latest version 90.0.1 of Firefox that I recently downloaded.

Please don't do away with the Simplify Page option! I use it ALL THE TIME!

Firefox 90.0.2 on Windows 10 was installed on 7/27/2021 which is about when this started.

Firefox is suddenly asking for master password twice, while running, not at startup. I leave Firefox running at night. I find two password dialogs when I log in in the morning. I'm not sure if they display at a certain time (e.g. midnight), or if it is a result of the system going into sleep and waking.

When Firefox starts or restarts, it displays one master password as expected.

I found this article from two years ago , but the "hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug" is not found in about:debug or in profiles.

I have not installed any add-ons recently. Last Windows update was KB5004237 installed on 7/18.

Is it Firefox? What else could be causing this problem?

Problem with printing at reduced scale, did not notice it before a few days ago so could have been after a recent update. Am now using Firefox 90.0 for Linux Mint 19.3. Printing to US Letter size (which had been broken with "na_letter" being stuffed in to the config at one point, but I switched it back to "US Letter" and then it started working again a few months ago - Thank you).

I see some similar questions listed, so this may be simply adding information to something known:

Printing with "Fit to page fit" works fine, with correct preview. Print with scale set to 100% works fine, with correct preview.

Printing with scale set to less than 100% (say 70% or 80%) showed in the preview the page rescaled as expected. The actual printed output is also rescaled as expected, but the page size gets cropped at the right and bottom by what appears to be the same percentage, ending up with lost content. The bit that does print seems to match what is shown in the print preview perfectly, suggesting it would have been totally perfect if the print area had not been cropped along with reducing the text and image sizes.

I tried the "Print using the system dialogue" option, and the printed result had the same pathology.

Same problem also happens when I print to PDF. For this I tried doing the same thing twice, both scaled at 70%, and on comparing found that the preview in firefox had also become cropped a bit but not to the same extent. I did not notice any cropping for the first print to PDF, but now seem unable to get back to what I saw originally in the preview, with correct resizing and no cropping. Playing around some more with printing at 100% vs 70% vs 80% to "fit to page width", I seem to be getting changing crops happening each time in the preview for the reduced sizes.

But the preview and print are both still correct for 100% scaling and for "fit to page width".

Sample web page I used here was https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a-shoulder-workout-for-better-posture?utm_source=pocket-newtab The screen shot shows the preview after the first reduced print to PDF, with no settings changed. The little bit of side cropping seen in the preview did not happen when I did the first print to PDF.

On any website--from YouTube to Wikipedia, and even support.mozilla.org I saw this bar flickering--pressing the arrow keys made it move like it would in a normal text field, like I was holding shift but without the blue highlights. It messed up with scrolling using page up/down, sometimes it'd mess with using the arrow keys to mess with YouTube volume, and just became a nuisance later on. Does anyone know how to turn it off?
