Print Preview takes two minutes to load

When I try to print anything in Firefox, the print preview window comes up with a spinning cursor where the page preview belongs, and it takes two minutes before it goes away and the actual preview appears. Only then can I actually print. Whatever process is taking two minutes even prevents me from quitting Firefox -- if I try to quit within that two minutes the FF window does close, bu* Bulleted list itemt the app itself doesn't shut down (as seen from the icon in the dock) until those two minutes have elapsed.

I can bypass the wait by clicking Print Using System Dialogue at the bottom right of the preview window, so I have a workaround. (Although whatever process it's waiting for is still going on, since I still can't quit FF until those two minutes elapse!)

Thanks for any help!

I know this is a longshot. I used Firefox for the last couple of years with Seagull Scientific's BarTender software on my Windows 7 pc. Now my PC was wiped out and Windows 10 as part of my company's initiative to get everyone up to Windows 10. BarTender uses a driver to talk to your print drivers and provide a status back to the BarTender server and webpage that we use. After the move to Windows 10 Firefox will not work with BarTender. It works in MS Edge and Chrome.

 I've got a ticket into Seagull Scientific and I can foresee how this will go.  They will point me back to Firefox and then I'll get pointed back to the vendor.   I know it will be hard to find someone with a similar issue.  But maybe someone had some issue with another driver, etc that stopped talking to Firefox.   
I've tried to turn off all of Firefox's protection stuff that might be interfering and still not working. 
I have used Firefox and prefer it over any others.   But I also don't like the idea of having to change browsers depending on what I'm doing.   Besides, this software I have to regularly use.   So if I can't find a solution I may have to abandon use of Firefox.

Greetings,

I've noticed that since the recent update to 85.0.2, right clicking in the search bar to paste information on Google no longer functions properly.

If I've just opened the browser, and not done a thing with it, it will work. If I've visited any sites at all, and used the 'home' button to get back to Google, or opened a new tab to do so, right clicking the search field does not open the contextual menu as it should.

Other search engines work fine, and oddly enough, if I type something random into the main Google search page, the search field on the results page (at the top of the page) works as it should. The only issue appears to be with the 'main' search field on any but the initial opening of the browser home page.

I'm not sure of the cause, beyond noting that it began right after I updated to 85.0.2.

For some reason, my long column (about 1,000 bookmarks) have an intolerable indent space/empty area to the left of each entry...about 2-3 in long and for all bookmarks, so that I have to stretch out the names and reduce my main viewer window as a result.

   IF I try to just move the whole lot leftward, that cuts out the "bookmarks" with the black star as well as search bookmarks entry bar.  A long time ago, I thought it had a left right scroll tab at the very bottom.  All support entries talk about moving the whole column to the right side of the screen-what I need is 1) an ability to move all bookmarks titles to the left edge as much as possible while keeping orientation with the top "star/bookmarks".
   I do use a zoom button for browsing the web, but reducing screen size has nothing to do with the overly fat/wide bookmarks area-there has got to be a way to put it on a diet!!!

BONUS: if anyone knows on a Mac running High Sierra or any other os, how the heck do you increase size of other menus that don't respond to zoom (command + or _)..even ones not on Firefox? Any recommended zoom apps for menus intrinsic to macs in general?

Hello, I use a popular website hrca.net (Hornby Railways Collectors Association). Since about 12th February this year attempted access just times out saying the site is busy or down. I get the same problem using other browsers. Firefox flags a certificate/name/address error warning which can be bypassed but not very convenient and possibly unsafe. The owner of the website asked me to try the IP address as a test and it works perfectly. Why is Firefox suddenly flagging this problem after 6 years of using this site without any issues? The website owner says no other users have reported any problems. There are 2000+ users. I have tried clearing the cache, disabling add-ons and resetting Firefox. Using CMD tracert I have discovered the IP address called by hrca.net on my laptop is not the same as the one supplied by website owner. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

When I add a page to bookmarks, the bookmarks bar shows up under the search bar, the first time it happened I selected "never display" the bar, but after that, everytime I add another bookmark the bar shows again, even if I have the option to not show the bar selected, as I have to click it again for the bar to go away.

How can I make that bar not display anymore?

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

I have contacted Unanet support and they logged into my account and were able to view all 5 PO's, so we're certain the issue isn't within the ERP. It's either with my computer or browser. See attached image for reference, there should be 5 Purchase Orders listed. There seem to be a few errors in my console (on the bottom of the picture) but I'm not sure how to fix them.

Hey,

I've been having a problem for the past few weeks that has persisted across updates and across editions (stable, nightly, developer edition etc.). When trying to open a file picker either for uploading a file on a website or for using "save as..." in context menu nothing happens.

I've launched it via console to check for any possible errors and tried in safe mode but it just fails silently.

Another thing I've tried is running Firefox with "GTK_USE_PORTAL=1" and installing xdg-desktop-portal & xdg-desktop-portal-kde to make Firefox use KDialog but same problem.

Drag and drop still works fine and the issue is limited to Firefox, other browsers open file dialogs normally.

Thank you very much for your help in advance!
