I noticed that on some web site forums where I participate using Firefox as my browser that extra carriage returns are inserted without any action from me other than pressing Enter at the end of a paragraph resulting in double spacing between paras. Investigation with the site admins revealed that other Firefox users are experience the same problem and describe it as "Irritating." I visited the relevant thread with Chrome as my browser and did not get the extra carriage returns. Chrome inserted only one carriage return on pressing Enter - no line spacing resulted - whereas Firefox inserted 2 carriage returns with a single press on the Enter key resulting in double lines inserted.

Can anyone help?

Firefox (Quantum) is not printing everything on a particular page -- it only prints about half of the information.

But Chrome does print all of it.

We use Firefox here at work so I enter the data on Firefox and use Chrome to print it. I'm so confused as to why Firefox is only printing half of the data but Chrome prints all of it.

I have tried everything from the "printing issues" troubleshooting page including resetting the printer settings and also removing all lines in the prefs.js file that start with print_.

Please help. Thanks!

Would appreciate any help or guidance with this. Have Windows 7 operating system.

It takes 2, 3, sometimes 4 times to click in an input text box to type. Restarted to safe mode didn't work. I tried in normal mode with all extensions and add-ons disabled or off. Changed theme to normal. Disabled hardware acceleration. Uninstalled/reinstalled FF. None were successful. It works in Chrome and IE. I look at my keyboard to type cos I'm retarded. So when I click once and the page animates like it wants to select but it doesn't, I usually have typed an invisible paragraph before I realize I have been duped. It is not a huge thing, just annoying.

Is this a permanent change or just an oversight? If this is permanent, I will get rid of FF before I get rid of Dashlane.

I frequently leave Firefox open with a video stream from twitch.tv full-screened on a second monitor while doing other things (playing games, text editing, etc). If I leave Firefox untouched for long enough (more than a couple minutes, less than an hour) playback will start to stutter or lag (usually video first, eventually audio as well). Clicking Firefox or alt-tabbing very frequently fixes the issue, playback immediately becomes smooth. This is not a recent change, I've observed this behavior for months and finally decided to ask about it.

I have no proof that this is a browser issue. It could be a site-specific issue, (I see it most often on twitch but I have also seen it on other video sites like youtube), an OS issue, or something else.

That said, I could easily imagine it being an intentional browser feature - if Firefox is not focused, throttle JS execution and other resources to save power. In many cases this could be phrased as a feature for the user. Does such a feature, and is it configurable? I've looked through about:config and done some googling and find no mention, but I'm asking here to make sure.

Im just trying to have firefox have a dark theme, for everything. I want about:blank and about:newtab to be black background. why is this so complicated? I had to search for hours on this crap and write a custom css in chrome folder under default profile. I have it dark now but now it still flashes BRIGHT WHITE for a second before loading black. This shouldnt be so convoluted to fix. By the way, dark/black should be the default theme for every browser on planet earth. It would save millions from eyestrain/damage from harmful blue LED light from computer monitors and phone screens. Ive already selected default Dark Theme under themes. I tried the extension, Dark Background with Light Text. It now has interference from my custom css file I created, and wont work properly. Furthermore I cant change the new tab background on torbrowser either which is based off of firefox. Come on FF fix this nonsense, make customizing a theme EASY. its the simplest part of a website, the styling. And the fact that I click Dark Theme and everything should be dark, ITS NOT. about : blank and new tab are still GLARING WHITE! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Hello,

I love FF and have used it for many years. However, every time I open it, I have to adjust the initial window size and then at least 1 more new window. I am using 65.0.2 64 bit on a Windows 7 machine. I was reading and saw a suggestion to use the command line switches to set the window width and height. So I made a shortcut with the target line as "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -height 850 -width 1800. This doesn't work. So what am I doing wrong or is there an easier way to accomplish this? I am very surprised that there is nothing in the about:config that would allow this type of customization. I also am baffled at what window size is presumed by FF.

Thanks for your help in advance!

When I installed Firefox v68 and started the program, it freezed my whole computer completely, even Ctrl-Alt-Delete didn't work. Only a hard reset of the PC (switching off power and restart) revived the system. Sometimes it works for a secodn or two, displaying the start page but then it freezes the system, most times though even clicking the firefox icon to start the program makes the whole system to run aground. The former version of firefox runned fine and solved the problem by reinstalling version 65.

I have been trying to solve this for days now.

My bookmarks keep duplicating out of control. I mean they will go from 500 to 10,000+ in a matter of minutes.

I did have sync running, but I have shut it down in case that was the problem, and it's not restarted now.

This problem is happening on 3 of my computers that were sync'ed. None of them have sync running now, yet they each still have the problem.

1) I deleted all duplicates by hand and then exported/backed up that version without duplicates (well call that the clean copy).

2) I have tried verifying the integrity of the bookmarks database through the troubleshooter. Each time the problem starts happening again after a few minutes. - I have done this on the current bookmarks - I have done this after I have deleted all bookmarks right before restoring, then again right after I restored the clean copy. - I have deleted all bookmarks, closed firefox, deleted the places file, then restored the clean copy.

3) I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox - I have done this then and restored the clean copy

4) I have created a new sync account and tried that, but that did not work either

When in safe mode, the bookmarks do not duplicate. But outside of safe mode they duplicate exponentially. I don't know what else to try.

I'm on Win10 up-to-date. Firefox 65.0.1. Watching Task Mgr, I see FF load and consume 320MB+ (235MB+ in Safe Mode!). When I launch Chrome or IE (with similar add-ons), Chrome uses 195MB and IE is 65MB. This is ridiculous; I have always used FF; I even started back when Mozilla was known as Netscape!! But, I'm about to abandon FF and move to one of those other browsers. FF grows in its consumption of memory while I work until it's way over a gigabyte and it cripples my PC and I have to reboot. Sometimes, I close FF and try to restart it and I get a dialog box telling me it is still running. Again, this is ridiculous! This got substantially worse when this Quantum revision level began. It was never quite this bad before Quantum. I hate to see the day when I won't be able to use Firefox anymore but that day is coming soon!
