Firefox 103.0.2 is running but seems to be preventing the iMac screen saver from functioning and appears in the iMac Activity Monitor with a "Yes" notation in the Preventing Sleep column.

Running "Refresh Firefox" seems to briefly fix the problem but it soon returns.

Any suggestions on why this happens and how to restore reliability to the screen saver?

My bookmarks do not seem to be syncing between my computers. I have updated versions of Firefox on both computers, sync is turned on, the same account is logged in, and the bookmarks option is selected on both computers. But when I force sync, there is a bookmark missing on one of the tabs. The most recent bookmark I've added. This has happened in the past and I had to manually add the bookmark.

Any suggestions?

Every time I launch Firefox a message appears on the top right corner asking to update with the following text: "Update available Download the latest version of Firefox"

I have never followed this message for I've suspected fake, but it keeps appearing, and every time more and more often along the day (at the beginning it was only once per launch). This keeps occurring in spite of updating to the latest Firefox update (103.0.2) through the "About Firefox" top left menu on my Mac.

Please advise how to get rid of this annoying message. Is this a potential hack or virus attack?

Hi, I have noticed this behavior for a while now and it is becoming bothersome now. It seems to happen ONLY upon initial visit to a site, any site. Once the site loads completely, any links from there loads without the black screen.

Of course, I have searched and tried the known remedies: 1) graphics driver. Chrome, Konqueror and other browsers do not exhibit this behavior. 2) FF add-on's disabled. No permanent difference. 3) Hardware acceleration disabled. No permanent difference.

I'm running 103.0.2 (64-bit) on: Operating System: Kubuntu 22.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.4 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0 Qt Version: 5.15.3 Kernel Version: 5.17.5-051705-generic (64-bit) Graphics Platform: X11 Processors: 8 × Intel® Core™ i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz Memory: 23.4 GiB of RAM Graphics Processor: llvmpipe

This is not a deal breaker but should be addressed to make FF more perfect! Best... Hong Son

Clear "Recently Closed Windows" list in Firefox web browser

Is there any way to clear the "Recently Closed Windows" list in Firefox? [I am running version 103.0.2 (32-bit) .]

If not, can one be added? (I'll have to submit that through the proper channels, of course. But if you have this same question, and do the same, the request will get likely more attention from the right people.)

I haven't found any extension, vetted by Mozilla or otherwise, that does so. (I see many for Recently Closed Tabs, but NOT for Recently Closed Windows.)

There's an option in the list to reopen all of the closed windows, but not to clear the list.

I have noted that windows with only an empty tab are not saved to the list, so that if I remove all tabs from a window and then close it, it is not saved in the list. As a corollary, if I restore a closed window, removing it from the list, and close all its tabs then close that window, it is no longer in the list. So restoring a window, clearing its tabs, and closing the window is a way to get rid of SOME entries, one by one.

BUT there are some pop-up windows that do not display the tab bar or the menu bar and provide no way to force display of those. I have not found any shortcuts or extensions that would let me do so. So there does not seem to be any way to get these windows out of the "Recently Closed Windows" list (without letting them be open windows instead).

All help or advice would be appreciated, so thanks in advance. ~FINIS~

When I printed an Outlook email under Firefox 103.0.2 and Windows 10 some essential parts of the email were missing, however when I printed it using Microsoft Edge it printed correctly. I tried printing directly to the printer, as "Microsoft print to PDF" and "Save to PDF". The results from the printer, and "Microsoft print to PDF" were identical, but "Save to PDF" missed out different parts of the email were missing.

Hi!

I'm using Firefox 103.0 on an enterprise managed Windows 10 PC. I installed Firefox myself - it wasn't pushed by any enterprise software management. Initially, saving, generating, and suggesting logins/passwords was working fine. But things have changed without my input, and now I get the following behaviour:

1. Firefox no longer asks to save passwords for websites I log into. I have to manually add login/password entries via Settings. 2. Firefox no longer suggests logins/passwords for websites that are already saved. 3. Firefox no longer offers to generate strong passwords for new websites. 4. I can sometimes right-click on a login or password field and choose "Used saved login".

See the attached image of the Logins and Passwords settings section.

Is this the result of some enterprise policies that have been pushed to my PC? Is it a hidden setting somewhere within Firefox that I can change? Is it a Windows policy that Firefox is obeying? Something else?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, -Paul

I got a new laptop recently and yesterday I installed Firefox and started up Sync. Today, on my previous laptop, I notice that a couple years worth of history are now missing from the beginning of the time when I used it! What can I do? I have turned off Sync now because someone told me last year to do that when I had a problem with Sync, to keep it from spreading (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1345759).

I am trying to print html as a book using Paged.js and discovered that fonts are rendered slightly narrower when processing "Save to PDF", which means more characters fit on one line leaving too few characters for the last line on the page to justify, making it too stretched out.

Looking for the root of the problem I made a simple page with multi-column layout and "Save to PDF" breaks up the text differently there, too.

CSS for it is:

 width: 500px;
 column-count: 4;
 column-width: 100px;
 font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
 text-align: justify;
 text-justify: inter-character;

In the picture is a screenshot of the display at the top and screenshot of the pdf below. They came at different resolutions so I aligned them as best as I could. In this case browser puts "ex ea commodo" in the second column on one line but in pdf "commodo" goes onto the next one.

Hi!

For the past month or so, some youtube clips keeps on loading and do not play.

When I switch to another video, it either plays or keeps loading again. Refreshing the page doesn't help. Clearing data (cookies, site data, and cache) do not help either. The only solution is to close the window which I'd rather not have to do every time. There doesn't seem to be any rule to the types of clips that plays or doesn't. Any ideas?

I'm using windows 10. Firefox is the latest 103.0.2 (64-bit). Thank you!
