I have designated that opening a new tab opens Google. I would like the cursor to be in the search box on the page not in the address box. I'm sure this is new behavior for Firefox. It's annoying to start typing and then realize i'm in the address box typing in the middle of the address. How can I change it?

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

Using v.80.0.1 (according to FF/Help/About) on Win10-64bit. Cannot log into godaddy.com. Error message is "Yikes! Something went wrong. Please, try again later." Works fine with Chrome, so have to believe it's in FF. Tried changing various settings in Options/Privacy& Security. Anyone else having issues, or better yet, a solution??

Hi all, yesterday I was trying to send an email (yahoo mail) (which I have used exclusively for years) and autocomplete was not working. Puzzled, I checked my contacts to see if the person had somehow been deleted, and to my surprise - I had NO contacts. Oddly, they were all there if I checked "Yahoo Classic View." Naturally I assumed it was a Yahoo issue, but got nowhere trying to look into it. Finally it occurred to me to try opening mail in Chrome and lo and behold, all my contacts were present, regardless of which view of mail I chose.

I really don't want to switch to Chrome because of mail, and although Classic View does work in FF, Classic doesn't have the autocomplete feature - which was the original issue, so it wouldn't solve my issue to revert to it.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Should I refresh FF and lose all my themes and add-ons and have to find them all again, or just uninstall and reinstall? Or is there a simpler way?

Thanks in advance you guys! (Also I tried to upload pics, but they won't load for some reason, I let it run about five minutes at least.)

No Little Images on Google Images

All of a sudden, starting a few days ago, when Google Images showed the results of a search, it no longer displayed little pictures with them.

Here are some additional facts:

(1) The missing pictures are still there; you just can't see them. By that, I mean that if you use the mouse to hover over where the picture really is, the cursor changes its form to let you know that it is now over something clickable. And, indeed, if you click there, the program opens a window with the image in question in it.

(2) As far as I can tell, this is happening only with Google Images. For example, YouTube is still correctly displaying the little images for its suggested videos.

(3) I first encountered this behavior on my XP machine, so I thought it might be an XP-related problem. But then I went to my newer machine and discovered that exactly the same thing was happening under Windows 10.

(4) Then I thought it might be a Google Images problem. But then I went to Google Images using other browsers, on both my old machine and my new one, and Google Images worked perfectly normally with those two browsers.

(5) So that meant that it must be some sort of Firefox problem. I waited for it to be fixed by Mozilla, but it wasn't. Then I searched both the Web and the Mozilla "knowledge base" to see what other people were saying about this problem. There wasn't a word about it in either place.

(6) Therefore, I can only conclude that it is a My House problem. But even that doesn't seem to me to make any sense. Here's why:

  • (a) My two computers are running totally different versions of Firefox -- 52.9.0 (32-bit) "ESR" on the old machine [Mozilla won't let anybody running XP have a more recent version], and 80.0.1 (64-bit) on the new one.
  • (b) The machines cannot talk to each other. (They are not networked.)
  • (c) One might guess that some update arrived at both machines and that, regardless of operating systems, that update doesn't handle Google Images properly. But here are three problems with that theory:
    • (i) The Firefox application on the old machine receives no updates any more. The folks at Mozilla have been clear about that. (And it's confirmed by looking at the creation and modification dates on the files in its directory.)
    • (ii) On the new machine, Firefox tells me when it has an update that it wants to install. It had not done so shortly before this new behavior arose.
    • (iii) If the latest, updated version of Firefox 80.0.1 (the version on my new machine) suddenly cannot handle Google Images if the program is being run under Windows 10, I wouldn't be the only person who had been hit by this problem: there would be some comments about it on the Web or in the "knowledge base"

I am totally flummoxed. I've tried clearing the cache, turning off popup-blocking, opening Firefox in its Safe Mode, etc. Nothing helps.

Recently (~2 days ago) I would be scrolling down a website and the text would glitch out into black/white/colorful squares. Now it happens randomly and I don't know what causes it. The glitch would follow as I scroll, and I could refresh the page or highlight portions of the text to get rid of the distortion. I have tried quitting out of Firefox, booting it in safe mode, and uninstall-reinstalling it. None of that has helped. Attached are screenshots of the glitch. It seems to be getting more frequent (?)

I did some system scans/diagnostics to check that it wasn't a hardware issue, and there's no problem on microsoft edge or other applications like discord/steam, so it seems to be a Firefox issue.

Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.
