Since probably half a year (or even longer ago) my Firefox does not print anymore. It sends a 0 byte file to the print queue. No matter if I want to print a PDF or to the real printer (as also described here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1362068 - same problem)

I have reset the printer settings in Firefox as described here: http://mzl.la/1BAQqop. Also, I started the browser in error recovery mode and then printing does not work either.

All under Windows 11 Home (22H2 / 22621.2283 with Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22662.1000.0) with Firefox 117.0.1 (64-bit) - but I have had the problem for some time, i.e. even with older Firefox versions.

On my 2nd computer with Windows 11 Pro (22H2 / 22621.2134 with Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22659.1000.0) and with Firefox 117.0 (64-bit) I do not have this printing problem.

I have observed one more difference between the two computers: If I click on the icon of the printer queue in the systray, the Explorer with the path "...\WINDOWS\System32" is opened on the problem computer. On the 2nd computer, the printer queue opens, which can also be opened via the Windows settings. That windows settings also works on the problem computer - but not the "click on icon in systray"-way.

I also restored the legacy print dialog (www.winhelponline.com/blog/restore-legacy-print-dialog-windows-11/). This has also not solved the problem and therefore I have built this back again to the newer print dialog.

Please can someone help?

At the moment, I always have to use the Edge browser when I want to print something from a website - which is fortunately rare, but it's annoying, especially if you want to print the invoice or order confirmation when shopping online before the session has expired.

Many thanks in advance!

Firefox shows a website as "most frequent" though I have not used the website since many months. Additionally, the history shows a visit for this website from this year that I did not do and on the other hand there are a lot of visits for the same website from last year that I remember but that are not in the history. What can have caused this and how can I prevent it?

Many years ago, I set up Thunderbird to use POP protocol to fetch and send email via my hotmail account (which I've also had for years). About two days ago, the fetching process hangs and eventually times out ... no new email is fetched. It is still possible to send email FROM my hotmail address ... so the outbound server seems to be working. It is also still the case that I can use webmail to access my hotmail account ( msn calls it an outlook acct now) to read incoming email .... the same old password I established still works for webmail. And yes, I know OAuth 2 key is needed for email client fetch .... that key was set and has been working for a long time too. Other details: - On fetch start, a brief window pops up and disappears so quickly I can't read it or respond if response is necessary... but it looks like the window presented when there's a problem with the password or other aspect of session start up. -I updated my iMac to the latest version of BigSur just before this started happening - but since that OS update, I do not have this problem with other email accounts for which I use POP protocol. -I am aware that MSN has "improved" its Outlook service ... anyone know if this has caused a widespread problem for Thunderbird users (or even other 3rd party client side apps)? -I have poked around in help in the online MSN Outlook support area, to no avail.

Can someone in the Mozilla community help me?

This is a Question for the Developers, and other Hackers!! Video Streaming Not Playing (Disney/Hulu/Prime/Vudu) Anything that uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content... YouTube works fine.. oddly..

I troubleshooted Resets,clearing cache, spoke to support from Disney on the phone, and finally reinstalled windows. Everything works.. Then applied my drive space hack. And everything is broken again.. Simple Hack, got the idea from Linux. I changed the C:\Program Files & C:\Program Files (x86) into Hard-links/Junctions to the D:\Program Files & D:\Program Files (x86).. And now the videos will not play... There must be some coding that monitors the Drive letter, maybe for pirating protection, I have no Idea... But I'd love to at the very least know why this happens.. I will plan to upgrade my SSD in the near future to prevent the need to move Program Files, It's just really annoying that a simple thing like steaming is now broken because the programs are installed on the D: Drive... Like WTF is going on.. Anyway, if someone has some incite into why, and a possible work around that would be great.

Thank-you very much if you read this!!

I have a couple of computers that are not allowed to have full access to the internet.

I've added the following URLs to the whitelist on my firewall:

aus5.mozilla.org and mozilla.org.

So far the only thing that has happened is the browser is able to tell that a new versions available but it's stuck downloading the update with zero progress.

I've seen some five or seven year old posts that claim I have to have the following URLs whitelisted:

aus.mozilla.org aus2.mozilla.org aus5.mozilla.org ftp.mozilla.org archive.mozilla.org download.cdn.mozilla.net mozilla.org mozilla.net mozilla.com


But since these are from a 5+ year old post I would like to know if these are still valid? And if not then what URLs are valid?

I have a number of emails managed (very well) by Thunderbird. A month or so ago an email with 123-reg changed its server to "generation 2". I had to edit server and port settings and these are all correct when I check. I was then asked for a password and was not sure which they meant. I can;t remember what I did then. I know it asked me to reload Thunderbird. Since then Thunderbird does not even try to access the account, nothing happens when I select "get messages" for that account. I have checked saved passwords and the password and server (imap.secureserver.net) are correct. I have had to use 123-reg webmail to access that email account, but I want to use Thunderbird, which has worked well with it since 2014. All other emails I use on Thunderbird still work fine. I need it to start communicating with the imap server so that it finds those emails and downloads them to Thunderbird.

I disabled all extensions today to troubleshoot a website and all of my Firefox container data is GONE!

Luckily, I have a second computer with Firefox that was synced earlier today before I did this.

I have put that computer #2 into airplane mode and have not opened Firefox in fear that a new sync will overwrite the data.

So far, I have saved "containers json" and "cookies sqlite" from computer #2 profile folder

Then, I backed up "containers json" and "cookies sqlite" from computer #1 profile folder (this is the computer I'm using now with the broken containers)

I have placed "containers json" and "cookies sqlite" from computer #2 and overwritten them on computer #1

The container names are back, and some of the containers remember the site logins, but some don't, and none of the websites will open in the specifically chosen containers from before.

Is there a way to restore the sites that were logged in and which sites auto-open with the specific container?

Thank you in advance

I use Fastmail In Fastmail's web app, the sent mail accumulates in a folder called "Sent" On Windows TB is configured to save sent messages in Fastmail's Sent folder. On Mac, if TB is configured to save messages in "Sent" they go into a folder called "Sent" but that folder does not have the same contents as the "Sent" folder in Fastmail's web app.

In fact. on the Mac I must configure TB to save in a folder called "Sent Items". If I do that then the messages also appear in the Sent folder on tb-Windows and on the Fastmail web app.

I find this very confusing. Perhaps someone can explain the discrepency

(This question should be directed at Google too.) I was watching a video the other day on Archive.org and the name Kevin Farley was mentioned; spoken, no subtitles/annotations. I paused watching the video and did a Google search on my Firefox. I typed in the word "Kevin" and the first suggestion was Kevin Farley. How is this possible? That can't be the first suggestion unless the video player on Archive.org and Google are communicating with each other. Anyone can think of several Kevins who are actors such as Kevin Farley, but more well-known than this brother of Chris Farley who, for that matter, was very well known. I don't believe that there are hidden microphones inside my computer or anything like that, but – in all seriousness: how the heck does this thing work? Is Google listening to me? And if it is, that means Firefox is allowing it to listen to the stream of audio through my sound card. (At least the line out. Maybe I should try and see whether the line in and mic in are doing the same and play a vocal sample from an external source/device saying "Kevin Farley" or speaking those words through a plugged-in microphone and see how Google responds to that.)

On Firefox's settings (privacy) I have not allowed any site to use my microphone, speakers or camera. On my sound device's settings videos, music and everything I do audiowise is going through "microphone", although I'm plugged in on the rear panel of my PC only to line in and line out i.e. when I'm playing music on WinAmp, it shows that a signal is going through the microphone as it is going through my output. (If I try to disable the microphone, then I can't capture any signal i.e. I'm unable to record sound off a video clip or from my external audio gadgets.)

Not quite sure whether this is a problem with Google, Mozilla or my PC's sound card or with all of them, but it still is an interesting issue.

I routinely receive emails each day from "Nextdoor" community website. After opening the first of these in Thunderbird today, then closing it I went on to open more email which arrived before that Nextdoor email (I always open the latest email first). Although the other emails were from different sources and about different topics, each of them once more opened as the Nextdoor email which i had already viewed. It's such a strange thing which I have not previously encountered. After trying twice more with the same result I have variously closed and re-opened T'Bird, scanned the PC with FSecure anti virus, closed down and re-started the PC but with the same result. Subsequent new emails have opened normally but once again going back to the batch which arrived with Nextdoor, they are still opening as a Nextdoor email with the same topic as the first one I viewed.

I would be grateful for advice.

Geoff
