This is a problem unique to Firefox. Even a page that's been supposedly formatted for printing turns out with missing text or text overlaid on other text. And it's a problem that has been occurring over many iterations of the Firefox browser.

Here's an example that prints fine in Edge and Chrome: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/220867/falafels-with-yogurt-dill-sauce/?printview

What is the problem, and why can't/won't Firefox fix it?

When I use control-F to search in a page, a ribbon appears at the bottom of the page with a search bar and associated controls. Somewhere on that bar, there should be an "X" to dismiss the search. It's not there anymore. (See screenshot.) The only way I've found to dismiss the search is to put the cursor in the search bar and press the ESC key. That's a bother. This must be a new bug, right?

If you visit a website with malicious javascript in Firefox (ver. 93), is it possible for the site to access passwords stored in the browser, or typed or stored in Mozilla Thunderbird? (I would assume that would be considered a vulnerability and if it is possible it would be patched immediately, but I also figured that it is better to ask than to "assume.")

Dear Supporter,

I got a notification from a website that FireFox is not up to date. On closer examination, this is indeed the case. Updates were supposed to be done automatically.

I changed Ubuntu's update server to main server; this had no effect.

In settings preferences under updates I see: FireFox Updates Keep FireFox up to date for the best performance, stability and security. Version 88.0 (64bit) Whats new Mozilla FireFox for Ubuntu canonical – 1.0

There is no option to check or disable for automatic updates. As far as I can remember, update to this version was automatically.

In settings help under About Firefox nothing appears about updates.

Extensions: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS notification: system-up-to-date I assume that should be allright?…

Thunderbird is 68.10.0 That seems ok...

Thank you very much

They play for like 1min and lag, continue for another 2min then lag etc etc. (even short videos on twitter lag). It was not like that before and I don't have this problem in other browsers.

In the last few weeks I have not been able to reset MY location for the weather. I am in Red Deer and the location is locked at Fort Saskatchewan, where I have never been! I know it should be a simple fix but even Geek Squad was not able to change this and they even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I took my computers to Best Buy to give them the run down and as soon as they opened up the default location said Red Deer! They are only a few blocks away and I was relieve that it worked. At home it immediately came up as Fort Sask again. This is just an annoyance but I like to use Firefox as my browser. Any suggestions?

Hiya I want to be warned when quitting multiple tabs BUT I do not want the session restored when opening again. This used to be possible but now in Settings if I untick Restore previous session even though Warn you when quitting the browser is ticked it does not give a warning when I quit Firefox. So this means if its unticked then if I accidently hit the close button I loose all the open tabs in firefox. If ticked I have to close all the tabs manually each time I close firefox to prevent thm opening when I start Firefox again. Im on Windows 10 Pro 21H1 with Firefox 93.0 any idea if I can change this behaviour in the advanced prefs? (about:config) thanks for any insights A

After updating to firefox 91, the option to disable proton is removed and now it's not able to turn it off. Proton looks good in some aspects, but I want the seperator between tabs back.

I keep hundreds of tabs in one firefox window and use some of them daily, without the seperator to show the boundary of tab I have to move my mouse carefully to click the correct tab I want, which is disturbing. The ability to work with hundreds of tabs is the reason I use firefox, the designers of proton seem not to have this in mind. Is it possible to offer at least an option to bring the seperator back?

What is the last Firefox version that works with MAC Lion OS X 10.7.5?

I have a study program of that vintage that plugs into firefox and the version on the computer now is 3.0.10 (from year 2009 and the program does not work with it.

The program is compatible with Lion OS X 10.7.5 but the Firefox version is too old.

The version 3.0.10 on the computer does not work well with most sites or crashes. The intent is not to expect to browse, just be new enough for this program for its dedicated use.

I was checking out these tweaks

Firefox Quantum About:Config Tricks You Need to Learn

I'm curious about "Lower Memory Usage When Minimized". Is there a downside to this? Why wouldn't this be a default setting?

Details: This tweak is mainly for Windows users. When you minimize Firefox, it will send Firefox to your virtual memory and free up your physical memory for other programs to use. Firefox will reduce its physical memory usage, when minimized, to approximately 10MB (give or take some), and when you maximize Firefox, it will take back the memory that it needs.

The preference name does not exist and needs to be created.

Right-click on the background and select “New -> Boolean.”

Enter the name when prompted: config.trim_on_minimize.

Enter the value: True.

I'm confused by this issue as Firefox worked fine until recently but an older version doesn't fix the problem. At first I only had issues with LibreOffice and Firefox. LO would only open in safe mode, Firefox opened but did not working correctly. The fix for LO was to disable skia so I suspect that is the cause of the Firefox issues, but it could also be a driver issue. Weird thing, Google Chrome also uses skia and although I had an issue with Chrome suddenly not loading, an uninstall/reinstall fixed it. I am aware skia is a Google project so it may be that Chrome and Firefox use different versions of skia.

Issues: Firefox opens and I have my extensions etc across the top but the main window is blank. No websites display. Switching tabs doesn't work. If I open a "More troubleshooting information" tab for example, I can only access/view that tab by closing the first tab. A few menu options work (help menu - Troubleshoot Mode and More troubleshooting information both work fine) but Settings doesn't work. I tried Firefox in safe mode but it makes no difference. I tried refreshing Firefox but it makes no difference. I tried clearing the startup cache but it makes no difference.

This is on a dual boot with Windows 10 and Ubuntu Studio 21.04. I also have Firefox v93.0 (64-bit) installed on the Linux partition and it works fine.
