Recently I've noticed that I am unable to print from Firefox. It doesn't matter if I print to a PDF or a real printer: I get the same error every time: "Print Preview Error, An error occurred while printing." If I do attempt to print to a PDF, the result is a malformed file that throws a sharing violation if I attempt to view it before closing Firefox.

I have tried all the various reset printer config settings on the help page Mozilla printer help , and even tried reinstalling FF. Everything else is OK.

Suggestions are welcome.

So after reinstalling Firefox my search engines changed and Google was removed completely. Only things left are Yahoo, Wikipedia, DuckDuckGo and Startpage whatever the hell that is. When I go to add Google as the main engine after clicking the three dots icon on the search bar where normally would be an option to add as a search engine, I don't have an option to do that. And when I'm clicking the Sign In button it tries to do something but returns to the Google home page. (sorry for the quality of the image, for some reason I wasn't able to take a screenshot)

I would like to open a new tab when I open a new link instead of the last page I am on falling behind. The old page should remain and new link/page open separately. Example of what I would like. I open Firefox and my homepage is yahoo. I click on a bookmarked tab to go to youtube it opens in a second tab. I want the first tab to stay open on my home page and a completely new tab open youtube. that makes two open tabs now

Chrome has a really fantastic feature called "Tab Groups" - it's pretty self explanatory but it basically allows you to quickly group related sets of tabs.

This is an incredibly useful feature but it seems Firefox hasn't got anything like it.

I've tried a few of the third party add-ons such as Tree-Style-Tabs but they're all over-complicated, take up too much screen real estate or change the way tabs operate.

Is adding simple Tab Grouping functionality on the Firefox roadmap?

If not - has anyone found any good add-ons to replicate the Chrome functionality?

I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

Please note that this is the sidebar I am talking about, not the toolbar which uses browsers.toolbar.bookmarks.2h2020. I am asking for the flag if it even exists to have the ability to have the bookmarks sidebar show only when on the homepage and new tab page, akin to how the bookmarks toolbar only shows up when on those specific pages.

Is there an easier way to view two tabs on the screen at the same time - "split screen" fashion? One can open one tab in a second window and adjust to have one window on the top half of the display and the other on the bottom. But this is a awkward.

See screenshot of this. It shows downtown Minneapolis in Google maps at two different scales. (Note that the I35W crossing of the Mississippi in the upper right corner is the one that collapsed in 2011).

One can switch back and forth between two tabs (maybe after moving the two tabs to be adjacent). But this is still suboptimal.

I use splitscreen in my text editor all the time (vertically or horizontally) and find it very useful. I wish there were an easy way to switch to/from split screen in Firefox.

BTW I searched the Firefox "Find help..." for: "split screen" tabs and got 1640 hits! I looked at the first 10 pages and saw nothing relevant.
