I here refer to my thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285212 in which the problem were not even answered by any of your tech people, but archived - why?

I find it really bad, if i post a bug and you just archive without even try to fix the problem! It makes me extremely angry! Bad behavior!

Please stop that and re-open the case.

Jan Ps. same system (Lenovo Thinkpad X300 with Xubuntu 16.04LTS 64bit (account A) )now running Firefox 85.0.1 64bit can now print, I can't find any mentioning in release notes to how previous version 75.0 and now this one is different and why this one now can print.

It would be nice to get this solved, since other people here has had this one too and it seems to jump between versions and OS(linux an windows).

Firefox 8.6.0 upgrade disables Firefox browser I utilized "System Restore" through the process of elimination I determined that it is the 8.6.0 upgrade that is causing the problem. So, turned off the automatic upgrade option and installed any Windows 8.1 upgrades and my Firefox is working great. Now I have a "nag" screen that is constantly trying to upgrade Firefox browser might there be some way to disable this upgrade notice?

A few days back out of nowhere I started getting network error 2000 on Twitch while streaming. I tried all possible ways to fix it on my own. But sadly I failed miserably. Then, I started searching for other alternatives to fix this issue. While going through different forums and discussions website, I found that I am not the only one who is getting this error. So, I decided to post this thread on this forum site so that I can help other going through the same problem. After searching and trying lots of foolish ways mentioned by some articles, I finally hopped into the savior. I found this guide on web that has some really amazing working solutions - Twitch Error 2000 I hope it will help others to get this issue fixed on Firefox.

My laptop location in Firefox is using my former home location. But when I do the same Weather Google Search or Google Map website in Chrome, the location is my current location in North Carolina. This true whether I'm logged into my Google account or not Signed in to my Google account.

In Firefox I've checked Tools/Options/Privacy & Security/Permissions/Location/Settings. It lists 3 sites that have asked for access to my Locations: google, home depot and BedBathBeyond. Yet when I use Google to search "weather", it gives me Wayne NJ. This section will not let me add Google Maps.

In Security I changed Block Pop-ups to continue to have a checkmark but added google.com and maps.google.com as exceptions and restarted Firefox. Google Maps still shows Wayne NJ and weather sometimes shows North Carolina but mostly shows Wayne NJ

Are there any other settings in Firefox I need to update? Or are there settings in Windows I need to update.? I'm using Windows 10 and Firefox 85.0

You can work around the issue by stopping the video currently playing in the YouTube tab before navigating away from its page.

I suspected the usual problem of hardware acceleration / video drivers and Firefox not playing nice, but thanks to the PortableApps.com Firefox builds and their version archive, I was able to confirm that it only happens on Release 86 and newer.

Since it's reproducible with the PortableApps builds, settings/profile/cookies etc., it seems pretty clear it's an issue with Firefox proper.

I've downgraded my main Firefox installation to 85.0.2 for the time being and am enjoying snappy YouTube without hangs again.

Anybody happen to know if that bug is already known / under triage or should I get comfortable with the idea of having to downgrade to and using Firefox ESR for a while?

I have recently updated my browser to version 87...unfortunately I had to revert to version 85.0.2 because the browser pegs CPU every time there is an advert on Youtube. Doesn't matter whether I let it play in its entirety or skip it after the mandatory 5-second mark. I have tried running FF without addons, did not make a change. I tried opening a single window with a single tab...no result. Can you fix it in some kind of micro patch? I'm running W8.1 on i5 6600K clocked at 4 GHz with 8 Gb RAM in a dual channel.

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

So I've been experiencing a rather annoying bug/issue, and I have a work around for it, but I would love if anyone could help me figure out the issue at hand. I couldn't find a relevant, up to date solution for this issue.

Basically, certain websites (the most notable being Reddit) will eventually no longer load. In fact, it won't even try to load. I will click a link from a Google search, or even just type in the URL for Reddit directly, and Firefox just does nothing. No error, no loading, nothing. The tab will stay blank with the URL listed as the name of the tab. I can't seem to tell if other browsers have this issue as it requires a bit of use/time to pass, but it doesn't seem to be an issue in Explorer. It isn't JUST Reddit, but it's only a couple of sites that this occurs on.

I do have a workaround --- if I tell Firefox to "Forget This Website" - suddenly it will work again. I will be logged out and see the default page due to having deleted all saved dated - but the site will work (for maybe a day) before I have to forget it again.

If this was a once a month type issue it wouldn't be a big deal, but the fact that I have to constantly re-do my local settings because of this is frustrating.

I am running Windows 10 and my Firefox version is 85.0 (64-bit). I have tried disabling any add-ons such as my AdBlocker, however that does not fix the issue.

I can see Google Authenticator listed as a supported application, is this no longer valid?

Hello All,

I have been using Firefox on my Windows 7 PC (64 bit) as the default browser instead of IE for several years. It has worked very well.

I have many utilities I have written using Microsoft Office 2003 tools. Many of these tools use the VBA FollowHyperLink method and this has worked perfectly with Firefox until the latest version -- 85.0. With version 85.0, when the code executes the FollowHyperLink with an address, Firefox starts but the "new tab" is empty and the address control has the "Search with ..." message. If Firefox is already running, the method creates a new tab (as it did with previous versions) and Firefox opens the specified address. I have reverted to IE as the default browser and it works as expected -- if IE is not running, it starts, and displays the specified address.

So it appears that Firefox 85.0 is not listening for an address while it is starting. Is there a way I can override this behavior?

Thanks, Chris

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

Hey,

on one of my notebooks (Thinkpad E495) FF occasionally crashes. This started happening a few months ago. Before I've been using FF on the same machine for years without any issues. It's pretty random but usually happens at least once a day, usually shortly after startup or wakeup from hibernate mode. A while ago it used to even crash back to back twice in a row meaning after I reopened it, it immediately closed again and only worked after I selected to restore the previous session after the 2nd reopen. Nothing is registered under about:crashes and I don't see any errors in the system event log.

I already tried to disable hardware acceleration and reinstalled FF completely without any addons besides a different adblocker. I cannot really reproduce the crash in safe-mode but don't really want to browse the web for possibly hours without an adblocker.

Any ideas what this could be or what else I could try? Maybe downgrade to a previous version?
