I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?

Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

The above is the error code for trying to sign in to YouTube. This code was posted while I was signed-in to YouTube, so in fact it threw me out. I can still access the home page, but not the sign-in page.

All other web sites I have tried seem fine.

What happened? What's the fix?

I'm using an online inventory system and regularly need to print barcode labels. This was all working fine until I updated to 102.3.0esr. Now, the data shrinks to a tiny part of the page when I go to print it. (See screenshots of what it looks like prior to going to the print dialogue and then when I actually go to print it). I've checked various settings suggested on previous posts that sound like the same problem but none of these work (Scaling, shrink, printer margins, clearing the cache etc.). If I choose a different printer and select A4 paper, the data looks to be the correct size (i.e. set for a 2x1 label), albeit on a much larger page.

I downloaded Chrome and I can get it to display and print ok from there. I just don't know what's happened in Firefox. Also, it's not just my system - one of my colleagues had a problem with a standard release. We changed him to the esr version (prior to the 102.3.0 update) and it worked ok then. Obviously something has happened in this update. Any help would be appreciated.

I've been receiving notifications for a good while. I could click on an icon in my toolbar and it would list the most recent notifications. I could click on the one in which I was interested and the browser would open that website with the info referred to by the notification. Now I can't find that icon. I like that feature but as I research, it seems that I was dreaming. I can't find any info about the referred to icon. I like the notification but I can't figure out how to get to them.

Thank you, David Shreffler Pryor, OK

Hey Folks,

The CTRL+ B shortcut often used to Bold text (literally everywhere) opens Firefox's Bookmark Manager side bar and sometimes formats text in the browser.

Does anyone know how to disable the Bookmark manager and/or resign this classic shortcut to text formatting only? The only option I found in the Browser menu 'Tools> Page Info> Permissions > Override keyboard shortcuts' does not offer a meaningful solution. I cannot imagine this most basic shortcut is not available for Firefox, I must be overlooking something.

I use this particular formatting shortcut quite often to create/modify browser page content for my job and would like to avoid using another web browser.

Thanks for your help!

I have a need to use regular browser (not kiosk), but disable the "open downloads folder" once a file has been downloaded. This is opening a file manager (thunar or alike) which then allows the user to browse the filesystem and open a terminal emulator from /usr/bin.

Using the policies, I am able to prompt for downloads, or select a download location, however I have been unable to completely stop the user from opening the download folder which opens a file browser.

Is there any way I can select policies or profile options for disabling the option for opening download folder?

I use my Firefox browser to create my business newsletter. Once I have published the completed newsletter on Firefox, I copy the URL and paste it into my mailing service (Mailchimp). I have been doing this successfully for at least a decade. Recently, however, I have been unsuccessful, and Mailchimp tells me that it must be a problem with the Firefox URL.

Please help me. This is an important part of my business marketing.

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

Hello, I am currently having an annoying issue when browsing Firefox on particular websites. There's this large, irremovable white bar at the bottom of the screen that appears when I'm browsing particular websites (it only appears on those and those websites only), but it never appears on other websites and there doesn't seem to be a way to remove it. I've tried clearing cookies and cache, disabling certain extensions but nothing has seemed to work so far. I'm currently using the Firefox Nightly, but the same exact issue is present on the same exact websites (developer.mozilla.org, codewars.com, etc.) on my regular version of the browser. This is getting really annoying and I don't want to switch to a Chromium-based browser, so is there any way to fix this annoying issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Applications box contains only; irc always ask, ircs always ask, mailto use mail and PDF open in firefox. I Refreshed Firefox and got the Old Firefox Data folder. The files for Bookmarks, Downloads, Browsing History, Passwords, and Cookies all have the same values in the Old and Current Profiles. File types "handlers.jason" value is 2KB in the Old and 540 bytes in the Current. I also tried restarting in Safe Mode with no improvement. I have read through most of the articles and links but not being an expert can't see a clear step by step path to resolution. I would appreciate any help you can give to resolve this matter.

Hello, I'm using a Synology NAS (DS220+) installed on my local network, behind my internet box). This NAS can be accessed both from the local network (https://192.168.1.nn:ppppp) and remotely across Internet (https://subdomain.domain:yyyyy). With Firefox I can access my NAS locally but not remotely. While this works fine with Chrome or Edge.

As my issue looks like another one on your support site ("Page won't load in Firefox, but works fine in any other browser", opened 7/1/21, 3:39AM), I applied part of the proposed solution: run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, cleared history, cookies, cache; did a refresh; removed then reinstalled Firefox, created a brand new profile. Without success.

Would you please have some ideas to help me? Thanks and regards Matteo
