I have a new i_mac 19.2 using catalina OS and firefox browser 78.8 and xfinity connect for e-mail. every time I boot up it asks for my mozilla/firefox master password. in 20 years of using firefox and thunderbird I have never been asked for the master password for mozilla/firefox . I had to go to xfinity connect to get e-mail service that worked because google and yahoo keep trying to highjack my mail app.

Hi,

After reading on the new update with Firefox 86, it seems that you have made some really good changes on the way cookies are handled forcing each site to keep their cookie separate from everyone else.

So is the Is the multi account containers still useful in Firefox 86 if what I'm using them for is to keep from being tracked?

It seems that they would be useful if I wanted to open several different Gmail accounts at the same time from within their respective folders.

Thank you for your help.

I am alarmed to learn from moderator Cor-el that FF installs a back door on my browser to load studies even after I specifically set my FF preferences to NOT participate in any study. Under Privacy and Security > Firefox Data Collection and Use, I unchecked the box to DISALLOW studies. ~ I am NOT enrolled in any study according to about:studies ~

--> How can I stop this? Can I delete all these "app.normandy."options in the about:config window without breaking the browser? Or do I set all or some to False? I am not a programmer. I would appreciate a lay person explanation.

~ The bigger question: Why is Firefox is inserting these 'studies' surreptiously irregardless of the options I set? ~

I deliberately stopped installing upgrades after v.84 to avoid problems caused by unannounced changes to functionality and the interface. Especially after the terrible changes to the print function which I encountered using another computer. But this disruptive, unwanted Print experiment appeared on this PC, despite not updating.

Thank you to the helpful moderators who can identify which about:config options we can change to false to roll back changes. However, it is not beneficial to make us waste hours to hunt these down.

Some tabs crash at random. Cannot reproduce at will. Started happening ever since I've upgraded to a Ryzen 3600 CPU. RAM with the XMP profile passes the entire 2 hour-long 4 -pass Memtest86 without errors.

The crashes happen on all versions of stable Firefox and on Firefox Developer's Edition. They also occur if there are <10 tabs open as well as 100 tabs open. I have 5-6 very common extensions on FF stable (Bitwarden, Gesturefy, uBlock Origin, Facebook Container, Open Tabs Next to Current, Wikiwand, and the Stream Detector), but not a single extension installed on FF DE and still it crashes too.

Some of many crash logs: bp-87b13e5c-1bc5-4f68-864b-95d6b0210227 bp-1751032b-df93-404e-822f-c13020210227 bp-e7840772-f24e-439b-b56b-ca8c50210227 bp-629bbf6d-b007-4b4a-8b76-b2d5e0210227 bp-dd9c0c07-61bf-44a4-b5a6-9f4170210227 bp-07cf5b11-39c5-4802-a448-7e6920210227 bp-97139c27-1633-4bab-a876-1bc030210227

These are all just from today, and these are not even all of today's crashes.

System details: AMD Ryzen 3600 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM (XMP profile 2) MBO MSI B450 Tomahawk (latest Beta Bios v7C02v1H3 - happened also with stable BIOS, so I put the latest BIOS on if there are possible BIOS<-->RAM problems but still crashes remain) Nvidia GTX 1070Ti (driver v461.72) Windows 10 Pro 20H2 v19042.804

Any idea what's causing this?

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 dear support! I would like to immediately warn you that I used Yandex translator to write the text, so there may be grammatical errors :) I've been using Firefox for a very long time and I'm happy with everything. But recently I have encountered the" problem " of opening tabs, it has always been there, but I am not comfortable using it.When you search for material intensively by links, when you open any link on the search page by clicking the left mouse button or using the right mouse button "open link in a new tab", in both cases a new tab opens, it throws there and you have to move back to the search page from the opened tab and open another link that I also need, which is inconvenient. In this regard, a question. Is there a setting in the browser so that by clicking on the right button I do not go to an open tab, but it opens itself, and I immediately open new links without going to them initially and I would decide which one to go to first. This feature is implemented in Opera, but I want to stay with Firefox.

Sincerely, Mr. Mozdor

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

Users have been complaining about update nags for several years, and when a solution is found via about:config, Mozilla typically puts a spanner in the works and deletes the relevant config items like 'app.update.silent', 'app.update.doorhanger... etc.

I just want to remove the popup, not the ability to update. I'll update when I'm good and ready, and I don't need a popup each and every day nagging me to do so.

If Mozilla must ape Chrome, then aping Chrome's non-nagging update policy would be a good move.
