When I start to type a reply to a Facebook post, the page scrolls down so that the line I am typing disappears one line below the bottom of the screen. I have to scroll down to see what I'm typing. Also, it jumps down the same way whenever I hit the backspace key to edit what I'm typing.

I discovered a previous (archived) post on this forum that suggested using "about.config" and making sure that the value setting for browser.backspace_action is equal to 2. But that didn't change the annoying behavior. Is there any other value I should try? It's not clear what the number means.

Nor did setting browser.backspace to true (or to false) seem to help with the unwanted jumping upon use of the backspace key.

This only seems to happen with Facebook, but it's quite annoying.

For over a decade I've used FF, and when I download things (99% of the time from Yahoo) I set FF to "always ask" what to do with downloads. Suddenly that changed and it started downloading everything automatically to the Download Folder.

I went to options and changed everything back to "always ask."

FF does always ask... but... it ALSO still auto downloads to the Downloads Folder now.

And I can't figure out how to stop that.

Any help is appreciated.

Yum SSL Connection Problem

I am attempting a yum EOL upgrade on a 5 year old Centos 6.5 server. I have performed the same upgrade procedure on 4 other Centos 6.5 servers without any problems. "yum" is the Centos utility used to download and install system packages from Centos repositories. This is a Catch 22. Since yum on this server is after End-Of-Life for the operating system, yum is not working on this server. Since the current yum installation on this server is not working, I am not able to use yum to download any Centos 6.5 system packages. There are yum servers that are made available to support yum after the operating system End-Of-Life. This requires manually modifying the yum configuration files in yum.repos.d to point to the Centos 6.5 End-Of-Life yum repositories. I have made this change on a number of Centos 6.5 servers without any problems, but one very important server is failing to connect to the Centos 6.5 End-Of-Life repository. Since yum is not working on this server, I can not upgrade Firefox. When I attempt to manually upgrade Firefox with a Firefox RPM, the upgrade fails because of a large number of library dependencies. This makes upgrading Firefox on the server manually almost impossible. A simple solution would be to perform a full operating system upgrade on the computer, but that would wipe out all the files on the computer. My only option is to fix the yum EOL SSL connection problem with the version of Firefox installed on this computer. The SSL error is:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] problem making ssl connection Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

I have googled this error and attempted several suggested solutions, but none have worked. I went into about.config, and made the following changes:

In about:config, I tried setting:

security.tls.version.max;4

security.ssl3.rsa_aes_128_sha;false security.ssl3.rsa_aes_256_sha;false security.ssl3.rsa_des_ede3_sha;false

These changes are not helping. I did not make these changes on other Firefox installations for this yum EOL upgrade, and they are working fine.

I do not know what is unique about this particular server that is causing the SSL Connection problem with:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml

On all other servers, I can successfully connect with that server.

Again the yum connection error is:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] problem making ssl connection Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

If I attempt to connect to this server using Firefox on this server, the connection fails with the error:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to vault.centos.org. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

I would appreciate any suggestions that you could make to help with these connection problems. I do not know what is unique about this particular Centos 6.5 server configuration that could be causing this problem. Your help with this problem would be appreciated.

In the past week or so something seems to have changed with Firefox whereby any time I go to open a file Firefox is first saving the file to the Downloads folder on my computer before opening. This never used to happen before as I was always given the option to just open the file or save it.

I have tried adjusting the settings and I have got Firefox to ask about opening the files, but it is still saving them to the Downloads folder automatically.

Can someone help with what changed and how I can revert it back to the how it performed a few weeks ago?

Hello! Just installed Ubuntu 20.04.4 on my laptop and now find that I'm not able to watch some YouTube videos on Firefox 97. It seems mainly just live streams that I can't watch. When I go to one it shows "Your browser can't play this video...Learn more" in the video window. Clicking Learn More takes me to a page that doesn't explain what the problem is. Any idea what the fix might be? The same videos play just fine on other devices on my network. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hire staff instead of your blind leading the blind approach would be appreciated.

Case in point, password security regarding access to my Last Pass vault!

Through one of your updates, my master password to access my Last Pass account is shown which allows anyone to access my last pass vault. Your instructions are useless and incorrect and your real support is a joke.

If you have an accurate solution that applies to your CURRENT version, I would appreciate your help.

As a FYI, Chrome and the other normal browsers have retained the requirement to provide their master password to gain access to my Last Pass vault.

Aside from this issue and lack of real support, your browser is great. If I can's get a solution from you, I will have to stop using your browser.

My printer is printing invoices from ebay but the logo and image previews are now larger (and cropped). I tried resetting the printer no luck I logged into the same area on Safari and produced a pdf that printed fine When I went back to Firefox and generated a pdf (print using the system dialogue..) it generated the sam problem

To be clear - The images are much bigger but cropped in the window dedicated to displaying it on the invoice so it only shows a small section of the image.

is this a current bug? How do I get help from a trouble shooting chat window? Thanks Mac Monterey Firefox 103.0.2

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Mac OS X 10.14.6.

Whenever I go to print PDFs from Firefox, usually through Gmail, if there are any images in the PDFs they are blown up way past their margins and rendered unreadable. This isn't a huge issue but it is affecting some text as well, meaning I can't print the documents directly from Firefox. I can download the documents and print them from Preview just fine, so it isn't an issue with the printer.

I'm attaching a screenshot of my print settings and an example of what Firefox is outputting (converted to JPEG so I can upload it).
