Is there a setting hidden somewhere where I can force my preferred date format? Why do I have to contend with the dreadful date format when when visiting mozilla.org in english?

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

When I try to print from Firefox 88 on my Mac Laptop running OSX 10.12.6 the new print preview window takes a very long time to load the preview before I can print. I could not find a work around.

I tried switching to the Classic print system via (print.tab_modal.enabled - False) Now I don't have the preview to deal with so I can print immediately like I used to. However, if I try to open a PDF in Preview from the Print Dialog window, it takes a very long time to load the preview which it did not do in earlier versions of Firefox.

I am surmising that one of the Firefox updates added the print preview function which doesn't work quite right on my Mac.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Andy

I just installed the most recent upgrade and it is worthless. I have lost all my add ons, the spacing on the bookmark line is so small that it is unreadable. I tried to figure out how to return my add ons and extensions to no avail. At this point, I'm going to start looking for another browser. What a waste of my time!

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

My download speed has been *very slow* lately and I cannot figure out why. My Internet speed is around 3.3 MB/s, but Firefox is downloading files at around 40-80KB/s. Nothing else on my system is downloading/uploading at all, and it's only Firefox that seems to have this issue. If anyone has potential solutions, I'd love to hear them.

I've used Firefox as my default browser for years. I'm now on a Win10 laptop I've been using for over a year. I have not knowingly made any recent changes to FF. I'm on FF version 88.0.1 (64 bit).

Suddenly, yesterday, I found that I was blocked from viewing many YT videos and comments. YT says I am in restricted mode. It is not due to a setting on my YT/Google account, because I'm not logged in.

Exact YT messages: "Video unavailable--This video is restricted. Please check the Google Workspace administrator and/or the network administrator restrictions." And "Restricted Mode has hidden comments for this video."

However, I have no problem viewing them in Chrome. So logically it's a FF problem.

Also, I discovered that other sites are affected. For example, if I run a "domain lookup" on the ICANN website, I get less detailed results than if I run the search on Chrome! https://lookup.icann.org/

Switching from Strict to Standard Tracking Protection didn't help. Then I did a FF refresh but that also didn't help.

Suggestions? Be aware I'm not a coder or any kind of super techhie.

When I manually try syncing it just spins forever without doing anything. When I sign out and and confirm, nothing happens. I have tried restarting my machine and Firefox multiple times but the issue persists. This is very strange.

I've been using Windows Quicken and Firefox for many years and have one ongoing annoyance... When I download a .qfx file of transactions from some financial institution, a window pops up asking what should Firefox do with this file.. (Firefox is my default browser)... There is a choice to open the file with Windows Quicken and I select that and things work fine. However, there is also an optional check box that supposedly gives you the choice to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". I check that box but it never seems to work... I am always asked the question about what should Firefox use to open a qfx file. What can I do to get FIrefox to use Windows Quicken to automatically open the file?

I noticed one day that when I opened firefox it would restart itself each time before letting me do anything. I couldn't figure out why, but I happened to run my mouse over an invisible add on. It was unlabeled as well so I have no idea what is was. I deleted it and reported it but after closing firefox it did the same thing upon repopening it. Now the address bar is red and I don't understand why, how do I make it go back to normal. Also I have refreshed firefox a couple times but after each refresh it is the same thing.

When using Firefox and searching with Google.com I will experience an issue where the Google links/websites won’t load. And if they have previously loaded and the issue begins none of the elements work. This issue is frustratingly intermittent. It will be fine for a few min and then break for a few min. I'd attach screenshots but there is no error - simply does nothing. I have done a bunch of troubleshooting and testing to get to the root of the issue.

  • Reload page
  • Restart Firefox
  • Cleared cache
  • Disabled Privacy/Security settings
  • Disabled Plugins
  • Updated Firefox
  • New Private Window
  • Tested another browser - Other browsers load google sites
  • Tested non google websites – Other websites are loading
  • Tested another network

I’ve noted that google.co.za seems to have a separate intermittency from google.com. However, I have tested and found both can be ‘broken’ at the same time. It also happens with Youtube.com. I am quite happy to continue troubleshooting, I just need some direction.
