I'm viewing a webpage that has several links. When printing the webpage to pdf using Firefox, the links magically display their full URLs, blocking the contents of the page. How can this be prevented? This does not happen when using MS Edge. Please see the attached screenshot. The top image is from a pdf printed using Firefox, and the bottom is from a pdf printed using MS Edge. 91.8.0esr (64-bit)

how to avoid the graying of most of the url in the location bar?

In the location bar (aka url bar aka address bar), the base domain name ("example.com") is displayed as normal text, whereas everything else in the url is displayed in gray. For example, if the displayed url is https://foo.example.com/bar, the "https://foo." and "/bar" are in gray.

Is it possible to get the whole url displayed as normal text, i.e., black, and avoid this "graying out" of some of it?

In my searches so far, I've found various other customizations for the location bar via userChrome.css, but not this one. Any help appreciated.

I'm using firefox 91.8.0esr (64-bit) as currently packaged for centos7 (x86_64), though presumably this is not system-dependent.

My macbook is a 2019 16", running Monterey 12.3.1, and has the touch ID sensor on the top right of the keyboard. I love having it for all my log-ins, but can only make it work in Safari. When I look online I'm told to go into settings> privacy > and then just choose the toggle to turn it on. My version of Firefox (which says it's up to date) does not have that option in the Privacy and Security section of settings. Any thoughts? I'd rather use Firefox than Safari, but that is a HUGE feature to me. Thanks!

Hi there,

Firefox is my daily browser and a few websites are causing recurrent issues. Aliexpress randomly switches language and currency, but the most annoying problem is that it doesn't let me change it (clicking on it doesn't give the menu it's supposed to give), and searching any item in the search bar just gives the "spinning star symbol", and nothing else.

Similar issue in eBay: some menus just don't open, including submenus in the "Contact seller" form, which cripples the whole experience.

As a comparison: all these websites work fine in a slightly outdated Safari 14.1.2. and the most recent Vivaldi.

Now, I saw the issue being mentioned here 4 years ago.

What I tried:

  1. cookie /cache cleaning, which I did to no avail.
  2. Safe mode: no change
  3. Switched back privacy settings to "Standard": no change.
  4. Manually copied files from one profile folder to another: as could be expected, no change.
  5. I even tried a full refresh, but with extensive customization already performed over the years and most of it either in about:config or extensions, I couldn't spend the time re-setting everything back to normal.

FWIW a list of all files and folders shown in my profile folder. I specifically excluded the "known good" files (see step 4). Interestingly, FF also generated an "Invalidprefs.js" file.
