FF is nagging me to no end to upgrade, from 82.0.3 to whatever. I would prefer to just get rid of the nags if that is possible.

Short of that, the upgrades are NEVER as advertised and always blow up things that are never covered in the upgrade release notes. I get the impression these upgrades are poorly tested. The last site-specific video AutoPlay problem I had took two months to fix -- no thanks to FF support. But I got it fixed. That involved Engineer Buddys at Intel and the source code.

Here I'll ask the same old question and no doubt get the same canned response -- Are there any unexpected blow-ups I need to know about NOT covered in the release notes ? Of course the answer will be No, because the volunteers are not privy to the thinking and failures of the developers.

Let me be clear about this: When/if I upgrade (because the changes wrought in my modified browser will be blown out and I'll need to co-opt more help with that) is there anything extant that will not work ? Anything at all -- especially with respect to video AutoPlay features ?

Upgrade agony got way too old a long, long time ago with respect to settings I had tweaked and got blown out...

Can anyone help with this ?

Preferred solution: Shutdown the upgrade nags.

Based on my friend's statement to me that HE WAS ABLE TO EASILY DOWNLOAD ANYBODY'S YOUTUBE VIDEO VIA HIS FIREFOX BROWSER I put Firefox on my desktop PC specifically so that I could download my own youtube videos via my youtube channel's DOWNLOAD BUTTON that had suddenly (after working fine for several months) stopped working for me on Chrome. *This download button had been for weeks working perfectly fine in my brand new FIREFOX browser but has just now suddenly stopped working: Is this a problem with FIREFOX or is youtube preventing me (by blocking my IP address or something) from downloading to my PC MY OWN VIDEOS?

Suddenly I am unable to log into Facebook. I have made no changes to my computer or to Firefox. When I try to go to Facebook the credentials box comes up, then before I can type in my credentials another small window appears with the title bar "Not Logged In" and Please Log in to Continue, and two little buttons at the bottom Cancel or Log In. I am unable to input my credentials at all; the little window keeps coming up. I am able to successfully log into Facebook using Microsoft Edge browser.

I am running Windows 7.

Hi all,

Last weekend Firefox updated to 82.02 automatically and the font is now very Chrome-like in that it is grey and grainy which causes me massive eye strain.

I switched from Chrome to Firefox because of the bolder, blacker fonts. Now I'm probably stuck in version 81 for the rest of time which is not a long term solution. Is there a way to use version 81 font rendering in updated versions of Firefox.

Thanks,

Jayule

I want to have a unified bookmark experience over two different user accounts on my desktop computer (one is my 'ordinary' account, the other is the Administrator' account. Importing bookmarks is a one-time event, and entropy takes over immediately afterwards. It occurs to me that using a Shortcut, to point to a single file, may be a solution. The idea being that any change to the single file will automatically perpetuate itself to both accounts.

My question - is this reasonable, or is there an even niftier way of doing this (a sort of "Blend the properties for these two accounts" type of setting).

Thanks,

Tony

Dear Support,

We are using IE on Windows for our main application and using ActiveX script to print directly to the printer and this is working fine. Now, we need to migrate the application to Ubuntu desktop and use the Firefox as web browser instead of IE but the ActiveX script is not working from Firefox. What is the similar feature in Firefox for Activex?

I have an old Macbook Pro, model 5.5 from 2009 running OS 10.6.8. I was running Firefox v48 on it, but couldn't open a particular webpage. So I tried to update Firefox to the latest version, v82. Stupidly I overwrote the old version. Turns out the latest v of Firefox won't open or install on my old Mac OS. I should have known this. Anyway, too late.

Is there any way of recovering v48? Or of downloading it again? I've read the warnings about security holes etc, and I know the risks. I would like to get Firefox running on this old Mac again if possible. All advice gratefully received! Thank you. Charlie

PS - I'm writing this from my newer Mac, with the latest OS and Firefox installed.

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.
