Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Enabling DNS over HTTPS dose not give me FULL control over this. I should be able to put a DNS IP address in there like in Internet Explore.

My system requires me to log in to the internet when I start up. Usually I am given a message and asked to click on a link, which brings up my login page. Since yesterday I have been receiving the following message: The page isn’t redirecting properly

"Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies." I have cleared my cookies and cache and restarted numerous times. This message keeps coming up. I am able to access my home page, but any attempt to click on bookmarked links results in this message, and occasionally it will refuse even that, telling me it's redirected me too many times. Apart from clearing my cookies cache, which doesn't help, what else can I do to fix this problem? Thanks

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

Is there a HTML5 video player or something else I can install on this old system that will work or is that not possible? I know it's an old system but it still does the job.

Hello, since some time Firefox does't download updates. On HELP/ABOUT there is the installed version and below Updates Deactivated by your system administrator ... . I don't have a system administratot, it's a netbook. Sometimes before FF would download updates for installation. Now now more. Updates are only available by dowloading and reinstallations. After reading some help articles, I tried to get rid of registry entries, no success. I tried to cleanly uninstall FF, clearing the registry and reinstalling. The problem remains. Mind you, this has been created by FF itself. Any ideas how to get rid of this nuisance? Many thanks for a reply.

Currently, I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Fedora 31. Recently, it's started opening most, but not all links in a new window instead of the current one. Not on all sites, but most. As a pair of examples, it opens links to articles on gasbuddy.com in a new window but not on Slashdot, and until a few months ago, it only opened a new window if I right-clicked and selected New Window from the context menu. I'd like to get the old behavior back, as this is quite inconvenient.

Hello,

I am looking for a way to hide my tab bar when there is only one tab open. I almost found the solution there: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1297983 But it is not exactly what i am looking for. This solution hides the tab but not the tab bar it self. I mean it leaves some black empty space because i use dark theme.

I kept looking for a solution to hide the container. I found this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1271391 The problem is: this solution hides all the time the tab bar. No maters how many tabs opened.

I experimented mixing these two solution. I have try:

  1. tabbrowser-tabs tab[first-visible-tab="true"][last-visible-tab="true"] + #mainwindow:not([tabsintitlebar="true"]) #TabsToolbar {
 visibility: collapse;

}

I tried the other way around, with "#mainwindow" first. I tried without the "+" sign. But none worked out.
