So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

Hi, The alternate search shortcuts are an excellent feature. Prior to a recent Firefox update, I was able to enter a search term and click once on one of the alternate search engine icons to perform the search with that engine.

Currently, I need to click the icon, e.g. Wikipedia, and confirm the request by pressing Enter or clicking the new item in the entry in the address bar drop-down, "Search with Wikipedia" (screenshot attached).

Is there an item in the about:config settings to revert this change and perform this search with a single click on the icon?

Thank you.

Hi all - having an issue with Firefox sync...

I have a Windows desktop, a Linux desktop, two Linux laptops and an Android phone...all running Firefox and signed into the same Firefox account.

I've got them all set to sync bookmarks, but I've noticed that I'll often add a bookmark, organize it into a folder on one machine and then it will either never sync onto my other machines, or it will simply sync into the Bookmarks Menu rather than into whatever folder I had organized it into on all my other machines...

Is there a way to get it working properly on all my machines?

Thanks!

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

I have noticed in my options section that I can specifically pick what I want. But, looking at it from a computer performance point of view (computer speed) which settings are best? In the browsing category what should I select? There are more than a few options there. Which ones do I need for good computer performance? And which ones should be not used? In the applications category what selections should I pick? There are currently many-many selections there. Are all of them needed or required? Would it be advantages to remove some? Hopefully someone can help? Thank you.

Looks like I need to rollback to Firefox version 84. Updated to version 86. However, printing from Reader View takes over twice the number of printed pages as Simplify Page function found in earlier version. The font in Reader View is much too large for efficient printing.

The two uploaded images print the same webpage article, but earlier Firefox version takes 16-pages, while version 86 takes over twice that many, 35-pages.

Are there about:config settings that can reduce font size in Reader View, or do I have to rollback to version 84?

Hello. After updating Firefox on my Macbook, a website I visit now will not load, the message "transferring data" will appear and the status indicator looks like the data is loading, then when the status bar looks like its at 100%, it will start over and show "transferring data" again, and this keeps repeating indefinitely. This only happens when using an IPv6 address, it works fine with IPv4. This did not occur in Firefox 81.0.2. This also does not occur on other websites or with other browsers. I am looking at the notes for releases between 81.0.2 and 85.0.1 but am not sure what may have changed that would cause this. The website in question is a BMC GUI for a server I'm working on. If anyone has any ideas I'd really appreciate it. I tried the debugger in Firefox but not sure what I am looking for. I did set a breakpoint for caught exceptions, and the screenshot is attached if it helps any... Thanks!

Mozilla Firefox keeps rolling out changes to functionality and the user interface without notification, as well as altering my user preferences. A set of about:config preferences that start with "app.normandy" seem to have something to do with installing these on my Windows 10 system. I did NOT enroll in any FF studies.

I am using centos 8.2 with it's firefox 78.7.0esr (64-bit) I also have my home directory mounted via NFS using the automounter system.

In general firefox works fine in this configuration. However, when I get on Ebay and try creating a listing, firefox will hang when adding photos and/or moving the photo order. My NFS server will then start complaining about 'failed to contact remote rpcbind.

I try to close firefox and it doesn't It then will ask about a script running to long and offer to close. It won't I wait quite some time and it doesn't close About now the whole system is locked up and I may be able to get to the reboot menu I reboot and it won't because the process is hung. I usually have to power cycle to get things back.

I think if I waited for the automounter to time-out firefox may close at that time.

So the questions are: Is this supposed to work in an NFS environment? What is going on to cause the hang? Are there environment variables to move "some directory" to the local disk drive if that is the problem?

I sure hope someone can answer this for me. Thanks Warren
