I have read a recent article from the Howtogeek website concerning Firefox Content Blocking. They suggest that Firefox has teamed up with Disconnect to provide this function.

I already have the Disconnect add-on installed. My question is, do I need to keep this add-on? If I remove the add-on, will all of the functions still be covered by Firefox Content Blocking ?

I am using version 65 of Firefox.

I'm on Win10 up-to-date. Firefox 65.0.1. Watching Task Mgr, I see FF load and consume 320MB+ (235MB+ in Safe Mode!). When I launch Chrome or IE (with similar add-ons), Chrome uses 195MB and IE is 65MB. This is ridiculous; I have always used FF; I even started back when Mozilla was known as Netscape!! But, I'm about to abandon FF and move to one of those other browsers. FF grows in its consumption of memory while I work until it's way over a gigabyte and it cripples my PC and I have to reboot. Sometimes, I close FF and try to restart it and I get a dialog box telling me it is still running. Again, this is ridiculous! This got substantially worse when this Quantum revision level began. It was never quite this bad before Quantum. I hate to see the day when I won't be able to use Firefox anymore but that day is coming soon!

Every time I print from Firefox, the page prints out in Landscape even though all the settings show it's set to print in Portrait. When I click "Print Preview" it shows a preview of the page in Portrait, the "Portrait" box is checked, scale is "Shrink to Fit". When I click on "Page Setup", the bubble next to "Portrait" is selected in the orientation section. Everything I can see seems to show that the page will print in Portrait, yet when it comes off the printer it's in Landscape. Every single time. This has been going on for at least six months, so it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the version of Firefox as Firefox has updated many times since this began (current version is 65.0.2).

The problem is limited to Firefox. Downloaded PDF's print in Portrait and if I copy/paste a page into Internet Explorer and print from IE, the page will print in Portrait. Which leads me to believe it's not an issue with my printer drivers.

I've tried all of the suggestions I found in the "Fixing printing problems in Firefox" article. Checked Firefox printer settings, reset Firefox print settings and reset all Firefox printer settings. After restarting Firefox, and my laptop, I'm still having the same problem. Firefox will only print in Landscape. Other than uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox, or going to another browser every time I need to print something, I don't know what else to do.

If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate the help! Thanks!

About a month ago all of my login passwords disappeared and firefox isn't saving them anymore. I tried using the logins.jason with key3 or key4 files from the Old Firefox but it keeps renaming them corrupt.

It's been asking to save my passwords but it's not actually saving saving them and this is turning into a real; problem.

I posted about it then but I can't find it and besides what they said to do didn't work and someone said it was posted in the wrong place or something so I'm posting it again.

Hello,

I recently switched over to Firefox from using Chrome.

The issue I'm having is that when I search in the address bar, if there is a '.' anywhere in the search terms, Firefox will try to look for a URL instead of just google searching like Chrome would.

In Chrome, if I type 'mongoose.js' into the address bar, it knows to search google instead of look for a URL.

In Firefox, if I type 'mongoose.js' into the address bar, it will search for a URL and give me a server not found page.

Things I've done: 1) Go to about:config and change 'browser.fixup.alternate.enabled' to false. 2) Go to about:config and made sure keyword.enabled is set to true.

I would really like to continue using Firefox instead of Chrome, but this is a convenience feature that is a necessity for me. I realize I can just add another search bar next to the address bar, but this should honestly just be a feature and I shouldn't have to add more clutter to my browser.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have searched for an answer and all the results come back with "Smooth Scroll" inside Firefox. My problem is with my website. I have windows 10 and when I go to my website using FF, smooth-scroll.js doesn't work where it actually jumps to the anchor tag on the page rather than scroll smoothly. I have tested on several other computers I have in my workshop using vista, Windows 7, Linux and Apple and all scroll smoothly. I have asked several counterparts to have a look as well and they have said it scrolls perfect. My site scrolls smoothly using IE, Edge, Opera, Chrome and Safari and all work perfect. I tried debugging, I have disable and re-enabled hardware acceleration I have tried uninstalling FF and reinstalling with no luck. And I have Windows 10 fully updated.

Sorry for the long explanation but my question is, "Has anyone come across this issue using FF on Windows 10"? I know it's not an FF issue as it works on all other types of computers but perhaps there is a setting I have missed. I love FF and have used it since 2004 but this is driving me mad.

Please check my website here. https://www.denlyncomputers.com.au

All responses will be appreciated.

Cheers.

No matter how I decide to print PDFs, the browser automatically defaults to saving a PDF to my Downloads folder instead of printing it. Even if I click the "Print" icon or File > Print from the menu. It always just saves the PDF and I have to open it with another application to print it.

I've gone into about:config and reset my printing settings, but that doesn't fix the issue.

I'm running into a frequent problem. After using firefox for an amount of time, my bookmarks and history become "frozen".

The bookmark become kind of "read-only", I can't add, remove, or move any bookmarks at all.

As for history, pressing Ctrl-H still shows the links I visited, but all sites I visited after firefox "freezing" disappears once I restart the browser. All visited links don't change color to deep blue either.

As a result, I need to restart Firefox frequently. What is going on?

Greetings, My phone is set to reopen all tabs when restarting, which has worked flawlessly for months. I just restarted my phone to find all my tabs closed. My history is still populated, however closed pages/tabs is not even listed let alone populated. My history is all from my recent tab, as it is very limited, being an android. There doesnt seem to be any option to find closed tabs anywhere else let alone search history further than 50-100 pages or so....

Any chance anyone has any possible suggestions, most appreciated either way, thank you for your time.

I am on Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit. I got the warning that my FF was out of date, so I clicked to download. Then I extracted it, and... nothing. What am I supposed to do now? Where is the right 'start' or 'install' file? Then I read that I should wait for Ubuntu's version. So I went to the Ubuntu software site and downloaded 65.01. That downloaded and installed itself automatically, which is what I expected. Then I saw several news blogs from the last 48 hours saying there was a bug that needed fixing immediately. I followed the information and downloaded FF 67.01. And then my archiver program said it could not open it because it was not the right archive type. I also saw something on your site about FF being self updating. That's not happening, either. Bottom line, I have a new but dangerously buggy version of FF, and apparently no way to upgrade it. Suggestions?
