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.

With the new v85 of Firefox... for Microsoft Print to PDF...

the defaults for print headers & footers has changed and is no longer available to edit or even view. It seems as though my settings remain in place for other printing options like my physical printer but even there the options are not editable or viewable.

There used to be a "page setup" option but I have not be able to find this anywhere anymore.

I'm assuming that it has to do with the bug fix for pdf printing but doesn't seem that it should be an intended outcome of the fix.

Any work arounds anyone knows about or has found?

Hello, We run a website that uses a bookmarklet button which allows us to capture the current URL location and save it. This is placed on the Tool Bar where its easy for a user to use. Until now, its been working perfectly but with this latest update to FireFox we are seeing the pop-up blocking being activated with the yellow message bar at the top. Now this would be ok if we only had to allow the pop up once (by clicking allow site), but unfortunately the bookmarket button has to be able to work on all sites, which is the whole point of the button. So its impractical to keep allowing it every time its used. Disabling the pop-up blocker completely then works, but then the browser is open to other pop-ups. Is there any way to allow bookmarklets to display a pop up and not display a pop-up message? Without having to disable the entire pop-up functionality. Can the FF developers allow for user placed bookmarklets to not be pop-up blocked. Maybe an exception added for that. They are placed manually by the user so are allowed by the user only.

Thanks for reading. Paul.

Running FF for Mac 85.0.2 but has issue in previous version. The history on the search bar is not updating. Previously, the list of sites would appear depending on how often they were accessed. i.e. most popular would be first on the list and the order would change depending on usage. That list no longer updates. There is still a list but it never changes. I have cleared forms and search history but the same list keeps coming back.

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! :>

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Hey,

on one of my notebooks (Thinkpad E495) FF occasionally crashes. This started happening a few months ago. Before I've been using FF on the same machine for years without any issues. It's pretty random but usually happens at least once a day, usually shortly after startup or wakeup from hibernate mode. A while ago it used to even crash back to back twice in a row meaning after I reopened it, it immediately closed again and only worked after I selected to restore the previous session after the 2nd reopen. Nothing is registered under about:crashes and I don't see any errors in the system event log.

I already tried to disable hardware acceleration and reinstalled FF completely without any addons besides a different adblocker. I cannot really reproduce the crash in safe-mode but don't really want to browse the web for possibly hours without an adblocker.

Any ideas what this could be or what else I could try? Maybe downgrade to a previous version?

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

Why are there Chrome .idb files in my Firefox 85 browser? I've never used Chrome browser and don't have Chrome installed. These idb files take up a large amount of space. Also when first downloaded 85 seemed pretty fast. Now, after a few days it is back to being pretty slow. Could this Chrome stuff be effecting my browser in an adverse way?

Hi,

I'm not sure what has happened but my Firefox browser no longer plays Amazon Prime Videos; quite simply the "play video" links don't work. I've played with the DRM settings, refreshed Firefox via the support options, and have installed the latest version of the browser. I'm running a Win10 desktop. Netflix works fine and Amazon Prime Video works fine through MS Edge, but I can't figure this one out. Does anyone have any suggestions that I could try?

Thanks and Regards

Before you reply, look at the last lines if you do not want to make fools of yourselves (by answering a question that was not asked).

Two or three years ago, a number of people complained about the lack (loss of possibility) of removing many login/passwords entries. I believe you could do that a few years back, before the infamous Lockwise.

As of today (14 Feb 2021), you have to delete unwanted entries ONE BY ONE, confirming each with a click. Typically designed for tablets and phones, forgetting that the desktop-rest-of-us still can use a keyboard shortcuts and such.

For example, if you want to remove cookies that relate to SITENAME, you just have to go to the Manage Data section of cookies, type in SITENAME, select all, then remove the selection. Done in 1'.

Currently, solutions that are still recommended are:

- reset the key password, hence deleting ALL passwords - remove the logins.json file

I do not want that, because (as for the requests I have seen on this topic https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276054), I have around 950 logins stored in there (yes, been using firefox for more than 15 years, and Netscape before that).

So, no, I don't want to remove everything ; no, I do not want to spend even 30' clicking.

Hello,

I love Mozilla Firefox thus am asking this.

Why is graphics performance worse in Firefox than it is on Microsoft's Edge and Google's Chorme browser?

Is it a matter of settings or what?

I have a AMD Ryzen 5 3400GE APU which is very capable of decoding 4k@60 VP9, but when I try watching Youtube videos in this video settings on Firefox, the frame reproduction isn't smooth. I don't have that problem with Chrome and/or Edge.

The video in question is the following:

PS: not sure why but some 4k@60 VP9 videos on Youtube lag more than others.

I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

When I visit quora.com on Firefox, I get broken images. This doesn't happen with Edge or Chrome, and of course not on my other devices (so not a network/firewall issue). It seems to be only on Quora so far.

I tried deleting cache, refreshing the browser, creating a new account, running without add-ons or plugins, without success. Switching off the enhanced tracking protection doesn't help either. I am running out of options...

The only thing I can think off, is that the browser was installed with admin rights that I do not have anymore, although it still updates without errors.
