Trying to use the seach box in the centre of the Firefox homepage (google search engine) .. everything I type goes up to the address bar . Tried changing settings - I see there's a search box option in the 'tool bar' which looks to be up at the side of the address bar. cant understand why we need another one as well as the one in the centre.

Also by turning off suggestions and not choosing the 'search box option in the 'tool bar' , the address bar is now only accepting URLs so searching isnt working.

So ..1. Is the search box in the centre no use?

        2.  Does search work with all suggestions turned off?

Problem with printing at reduced scale, did not notice it before a few days ago so could have been after a recent update. Am now using Firefox 90.0 for Linux Mint 19.3. Printing to US Letter size (which had been broken with "na_letter" being stuffed in to the config at one point, but I switched it back to "US Letter" and then it started working again a few months ago - Thank you).

I see some similar questions listed, so this may be simply adding information to something known:

Printing with "Fit to page fit" works fine, with correct preview. Print with scale set to 100% works fine, with correct preview.

Printing with scale set to less than 100% (say 70% or 80%) showed in the preview the page rescaled as expected. The actual printed output is also rescaled as expected, but the page size gets cropped at the right and bottom by what appears to be the same percentage, ending up with lost content. The bit that does print seems to match what is shown in the print preview perfectly, suggesting it would have been totally perfect if the print area had not been cropped along with reducing the text and image sizes.

I tried the "Print using the system dialogue" option, and the printed result had the same pathology.

Same problem also happens when I print to PDF. For this I tried doing the same thing twice, both scaled at 70%, and on comparing found that the preview in firefox had also become cropped a bit but not to the same extent. I did not notice any cropping for the first print to PDF, but now seem unable to get back to what I saw originally in the preview, with correct resizing and no cropping. Playing around some more with printing at 100% vs 70% vs 80% to "fit to page width", I seem to be getting changing crops happening each time in the preview for the reduced sizes.

But the preview and print are both still correct for 100% scaling and for "fit to page width".

Sample web page I used here was https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a-shoulder-workout-for-better-posture?utm_source=pocket-newtab The screen shot shows the preview after the first reduced print to PDF, with no settings changed. The little bit of side cropping seen in the preview did not happen when I did the first print to PDF.

Hello, I have Firefox on all of my devices (Win10Pro, Fire tablet, Samsung phone, etc.). Recently got a Raspberry Pi 4 (Linux) with a 24" (1920x1080) monitor and Firefox (78.11.0esr 32 bit) seems to 'default' to Mobile. How do I change to Desktop globally? Google Search comes up in the middle third of the screen. (Search dropped "Linux" from the search I tried on subject - Google is becoming worthless.) Amazon.com comes up as text on the left side. I don't want to have to manually change from Mobile to Desktop for each site that I visit. PLEASE, don't make me use Chromium....

Thanks!

Hi pals,

It's beginning to annoy me that I have to keep signing into my Firefox account and that I have to adjust setting on the browser, like the language (the default is somehow German and I need it to be in English) and the search engine keeps defaulting back into Google instead of Duckduckgo.

This isn't a normal thing, right?

I've recently switched back to Firefox from Chrome (see: yesterday) and without a break, the above keeps happening which is starting to get to me because I just want to look things up. I've installed the usual Add-ons I had when I was on Chrome like:

  • Dicitionary Anywhere
  • Earth View
  • uBlock Origin

I've read about Disconnect though so that's new for me. So this could be the culprit but other than that, I'm clueless. If anyone has any insight as to what keeps resetting and logging me out, please let me know.

I have many duplicate entries in the "Send Tab to Device" menu, which I believe are from old installs. This occurs on both desktop version of Firefox and Firefox Android.

The problem is they do not appear in https://accounts.firefox.com/settings#connected-services so I cannot remove them. Only the actual devices I am using appear there.

Any ideas?

I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

Netflix and Prime Video do not allow video playing and give me errors associated with Widevine. Thing is, all the threads I have found about Widevine issues for Firefox on MacOS say that new widevine is not supported on or before MacOS 10.11.

I am using a MacbookPro 13" 2012 Running MacOS 10.15.17 (Catalina) Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit)

Installed Firefox 78.9.0esr as suggested roll back solution and it did not change anything. Reinstalled Firefox 90.0.2 and now Firefox Plugins section is is telling me that "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." but it doesn't seem to change. I have always stayed updated on MacOS and Firefox versions, and suddenly in early 2021 this has become an issue that persists to date.

Is the current status of Widevine for Firefox on MacOS BROKEN?

There are no roll backs that seem to work, and I can't find anyone else with my MacOS and Firefox versions that are reporting the same problem. Streaming is not only the way of the future, it has been the standard for media viewing for over 5 YEARS. Firefox needs to figure how to make widevine work from the get go or it will quickly go the way of the dinosaur.

I don't WANT to use Chrome (thought I currently do for Netflix), please don't suggest that as a solution.

I also not able to downgrade back to old version because firefox does not want to open with alert that I use older version.

I use firefox on MacOS Mojave and after upgrade Firefox tried to access to my keychain for certificate, but without success. I do not have set my firefox to use my keychain, so I do not know why it tried to access keychain.

So I have to migrade to chrome :(. I wait for a while if there is solution before I delete firefox.
