I've been using PDFcreator for years. Just recently, when I print to PDF from Firefox, it has started producing PDFs that do not contain searchable text (ie where the text from the webpage becomes a raster image).

PDFcreator still works properly with all other software (including Chrome). Can anyone recommend a way I can make Firefox start behaving itself?

Thanks!

Hello! I have accidentally moved a folder (containing two sub-folders) to Trash, and emptied the Trash folder. I have followed the instructions on restoring them from the Thunderbird profile, and it did not work. At this point I edited the INBOX file, but after closing it was no longer able to find it again. I have also used the "Repair folder" option for the Inbox, but it did not work. There is no backup of my account.

I have lost a folder with a a lot of sub-folders and all their associated email messages. The rest of my TB installation is fine, it is just this one folder that has gone missing. I haven't referenced these messages in a long time and didn't notice it was missing. I had a major email problem earlier this year and uninstalled and re-installed TB multiple times so I might have caused the problem without noticing it.

I installed TB on another computer (32 bit) and loaded an old MOZ backup from a few months ago and the folders and emails are there. I just installed the Import-Export add on but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to move the folder, subs and messages in one go or I am missing something.

BTW I tried the Save As to a file option but my 'file' setting is grayed out and can't be selected.

How can I transfer the folders + messages I need from the old backup to my main computer?

Thanks

Hi,

I would like to address the following feedback to Designers, User Experience Experts, and Developers of Firefox.

I am creating this post to mention something very important about the usuability of Firefox and that people look for in choosing their browsers. Although "just" usability aspects, I think they cannot be overlooked in order to make Firefox the go-to choice of more users.

There are a four (relatilvely) small features that Firefox lacks in respect to Chrome and other major browsers, and a number of people miss them so much that end up using other browsers. Namely:

1) There is no "Type Address + Tab" functionality when typing a URL of a website in the address bar and then pressing Tab so as to directly type the search that a user wants to look for once landing on the given website (this is a famous Chrome feature).

2) a CTRL + F search for a word in a web page does not highlight all words in a page, but only the current one is found (one needs to click enter to find the next one but it does not work like in Chrome or Safari which they highlight ALL instances of the searched text)

3) a laptop trackpad's pinch in/out with two fingers does not allow the zoom of a web page (third party plug ins fail at doing this task properly).

4) ALL other browsers open an incognito window with CTRL + SHIT + N. Why does Firefox does it differenly with CTRL + SHIT + P? This creates confusion for the average browser user.


I think having an attention to detail for such feature is really important. It would increase Firefox's userbase. Although a person choosing Firefox is making an important, usually conscious decision, about privacy, usuability plays an essential role for an average internet user.

Hey there all!

I recently got a new phone (Samsung S20 ultra), Downloaded Firefox Mobile (Favourite browser) and now when I try to load Live Streams the audio comes through fine but there isn't any video just a blank screen. Normally I would probably put this down to hardware acceleration, However I can't find that option on the mobile version. Anyone got any ideas how to fix this? I tried live streams in Chrome and they work perfectly fine! So I'm a bit lost.

Many thanks

Hello,

I am currently using Kaspersky Internet Security 2019 on both computers, and on mine it updated to the 2020 version, and I went to the Kaspersky forum and asked how do I re-install the 2019 version and I was given the help, however, now I have lost the Kaspersky Protection 2019 Add-On on Firefox, and when I look to see about installing the Kaspersky, it isn't listed on Firefox anymore.

Where can I find the 2019 Add-On?

Hello There,

I have been trying to figure out why videos that are embedded on certain sites do not show up on Firefox however they show up in Chrome?

I've gone through everything listed here:

and

A few key notes, even when in safe mode, the video problem still persists. But only on specific websites (squarespace sites). I can see videos through websites like Zoom, Shaw Bluewave, youtube, etc etc. But for some reason on this one site I can't get videos to display to play. Yet when I go to Chrome it's there and fine. So it's an issue with Firefox. I'm not sure how to fix it at this point.

I've unchecked Use recommended performance settings. I've switched the default theme I've disabled extensions (which fixed another issue of not displaying images) I've refreshed Firefox I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox I've checked all my graphics drives (they're all there and working)

At this point I'm not sure what to do. Can you please let me know if you have any recommendations?

Cheers Chantal

I need to download a Visio file with the file extension .vsdx from a program online where I must save the file to my computer. However, Firefox automatically labels the content type as a Firefox document, and adds htm at the end of the file. It does not matter if I change the document type to Visio, this continues to happen. It will even save the file as Firefox document, .vsdx.htm. Yes, I have checked my program defaults.

I really just need someone to help me change the code to make Firefox recognize that .vsdx is a forking Visio Drawing file, and not a Firefox document.

Thank you in advance.
