I just started using Firefox recently. I can't get my search engine to stick. Every time i change it it changes back to Google. Every time I delete Google it shows back up . It's like a bad infection. How can I change my search engine and not have it revert back to default? I have performed all of the recommended procedures with no success. And I have no add-ons installed.

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

I am lost so request some expert help!!

I have had a few problems on my win 10 pro 64bit pc where my better half had hsd quite a few win profile logon errors. These hsve bern fixed via regedit until recently where nothing in the hive profile fixes it. (Hardware is fine and no malware just in case you wonder!) As a shortcut I have created a new logon to get the user up and running. Of course Firefox now does not have the old logon's profile available to the 'new' Windows user account.

So I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1065938 to copy over the firefox profile files to the created user's profile folder.

But this has not worked. No history, passwords, settings etc available to the new windows account, though it looks like the files have been copied however confusingly repeating exercise does not warn about file overwriting!

How can the profile be updated to get all the passwords and settings into the new account?

Notes: Windows and FF up to date. My personal account is still fine it's just the other user account that is the problem. Cannot logon to the other 'old' account to use FF built in profile management but it should be ok in the newly created acount.

Hi,

Due to some restrictions of features I’ve had to move from Chrome to Firefox at work. I often ship using the DHL Intraship portal. When trying to physically print the waybills they don’t print properly on the paper. They come out in different orientation and sizes than needed. I’m wondering if there’s a way to set the printer settings to the same configuration Chrome has?

Let me explain the differences.

On Chrome:

First off I will select the “Print Selected Documents” button. This opens what I assume is a PDF version of the documents in browser while giving me the option to print. The printer automatically sizes it and between the three pages detects which orientation and size needed. Please see screenshots below. I have censored some of the info.

Print Selected Documents Screen on Chrome: https://ibb.co/gJ6DJdt

PDF open in browser with print option that shows the pages in different orientation: https://ibb.co/Kj9vfJ1 https://ibb.co/7jGNnBS

Next up are the windows and settings in Firefox:

Print Selected Documents screen in Firefox: https://ibb.co/25zVKTQ

After clicking the button I don’t receive any print preview of the PDF and the orientation defaults to portrait instead of a mixture of portrait and landscape: https://ibb.co/MDJCR0W

If anyone knows how I can fix it the advice and help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much!

Hi all, I'd be grateful for some help with themes. I've been using Firefox and this specific feature for years and never had any issues with it. On my new PC, themes are suddenly looking like they have only been partially applied. Every theme so far has done this, I've checked all the regular customization settings and I'm stumped. As you can see in the screenshot, the theme applies to the tab and search bar levels, but not to the top level that shows the page title and system buttons. I know it's a cosmetic issue but it is driving me mad. Is this a "feature" in a new version of Firefox to make themes look like this? It looks more like a bug to me :(

I'm on Windows 10, brand new install on a new machine, I've only synced my Firefox tabs/bookmarks etc but it already looked like this before I did that or added my usual extensions. Any help or explanation why it's like this now would be appreciated!

Looking for any help or advice,

I only use 2 addons in firefox, they are Bitdefender Wallet and Adblock and since the last Firefox update I cannot get either working. I can install adblock, it will work until the browser is closed, next time I open the browser it will be disabled with no option to re enable it and no explanation as to why it was disabled. I have tried a few addons as a test and after the browser is closed all will be automatically disabled. With Bitdefender wallet trying to install the extension results in an error of the download is corrupt.

I have used Firefox for years with both of these options and no errors. To try and fix I have reinstalled both Firefox and Bitdefender but the issue remains the same.

Current Firefox build is at 84.0.2

Any advise would be brilliant as I really do not want to resort to Chrome (which is working perfectly).

Many thanks.

Hi,

Somehow while searching for this solution on the web. I got my answer in a foreign Firefox. The answers posted to this solution are in English but all the other buttons are according to Goggle translate are in Lithuanian. How can I see this whole page in English?

I was able to answer a couple of people but if I search in my USA profile, none my posted questions or answers include the ones from the Lithuanian Firefox.  Just curious if I could see them here somehow.

Hi I know I have asked this before, but it is still something I want to do. I want to prevent Firefox from automatically updating itself. I know there is a box for this in options but this doesn't prevent automatic updates: a known issue. I have tried all manner of about: config settings registry edits etc. but I still cannot prevent Firefox from updating. As Firefox apparently cannot update without removing all my settings addins etc. it becomes more and more like I am having to hold its hand each and every time. Gone are the days when software worked for you, now you have to sist back and continually waste time restoring settings and addins: but only if Firefox decides they remain of use, whether I want them or not. I then have to either start from scratch by manually reinstalling them, or find another as Firefox no longer lists them. I find this "we know better than you " attitude is unnacceptable. Does anyone else share my thoughts that software should do what the end user wants it to and not what the provider wants?

Firefox apparently has a new print feature that is intended to replace the print dialog box. I would like to know how to turn it off. It is a good try. My printing off the web usually involves only selected pages, i.e. not All pages. With the new Firefox feature, I don't like having to click on All, then click on Custom, then select pages to print. I would much prefer using the system dialog box where I can just immediately enter pages, 2-3 for example, and print. Edge has this same printing issue, too many clicks to do the simple task of printing only specified pages.

Now with the new update, it is gone whenever I start Firefox new. I have tried resizing Firefox for Windows using the opposite arrows but the menu bar will not come back. I right click on the tabs bar and it show the menu bar checked. I can shut Firefox down and restart with the menu bar showing. This only happens on any new start of Firefox.

I have posed this question under "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems," and under "Other," and have not gotten a single response. So I am trying it again here.

This is a major glitch, and I am surprised that no one else is dealing with it too!

Is there anyone who works for Mozilla who monitors these forums who can help?
=========

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

I use Firefox for work and I have a site that has a pop up window that shows me alerts. When I use this site on Edge or Google the site makes either a sound or blinks in the taskbar or both. On Firefox I cannot get it to do either of those. The site seems to work best in Firefox but I need an alert sound or visual to let me know there is an item for me to review.

Hey there!

We have error logs being created fairly regularly for user(s?) with a particular Firefox extension. We are trying to identify this extension to determine the cause. I know a reverse-lookup (ID to name) service exists for Chrome extensions. Is there something similar for Firefox extensions? Thus far, I haven’t been able to find one.

The extension ID/source in question is: moz-extension://ba9d01f7-5cbf-442b-94bf-f030a6fdc626/scripts/uninterrupt.js

Any insight that can be provided would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
