Fresh Win10 install, when NORD VPN is on, I'm experiencing CAPCHA gateway issues for google search and other websites. Once I complete the CAPCHA, it loops back to "i'm not a bot" and it is endless (on google). Other sites just indicate the wrong input endlessly.

I changed my cookie policy from 'strict' restrictive (my old default) to 'standard', which hasn't helped. Shutting off Nord resolves this issue. I didn't have this issue before my fresh install with FF & Nord; and I don't have this issue with Chrome.

Thanks for any insight.

This happened very suddenly, and in firefox as well as opera browser. Video files and GIFs display as moving vertical colored lines, like aurora borealis. This only applies to files embedded in mails, messenger or social sites, not sites like youtube - those play just fine. Video and GIF files saved in my desktop are fine as well. Issue arose about a week ago, I am stumped! Any suggestions?

When closing the last tab, instead of closing, Firefox restores a tab from a previous session. This session history can also get queued, so if I have closed Firefox with a tab open on more than one occasion, it will restore that many times. Once closing this restored tab, it does appear to remove it from the old session 'queue'.

When I close the last tab, it should _never_ restore an old tab. I'm fine with an about:blank or something similar (closing the browser is preferred), but of all the actions to restore a session, closing the last tab is wildly unexpected.

I was using the beta update channel, but with the recent release, I downloaded and installed 85.0 instead of upgrading to the 86 beta. This seems to have worked fine, but About Firefox is still showing me as being on the beta update channel and asking me to upgrade to the 86 beta. How can I get on the release update channel so I can turn on automatic updates again?

So I forgot my Firefox account password, but it is open on my android and ipad but not on the main laptop browser. I don't want to reset my password since I need my data, so the only way I see is backing up data from mobile and then pushing it to the laptop. How this is possible? Also, can why I cannot login on laptop with scanning a QR code? Any method I can use to login to my account without the password?

The back/forward buttons on my mouse are not working as intended, ONLY on the Firefox browser. The actions work correctly on every other application and browser that I use. With Firefox, when the back/forward buttons are pressed, the "up/down" scroll is triggered. This is not how I have mapped my mouse. Please look into fixing this. It is very annoying. Thank you.

Greetings all, Is there a way to change the margins of viewed markdown files by going into, for example, about:config or another way? Would this or some other commands allow me to change the left and right margins?

I would like to change (widen primarily) the margins of markdown files when I view them on my Firefox browser. I use a lot of Markdown, for writing, scientific work (RMarkdown), and note-taking. I am currently using a Markdown text editor (Abricotine, not that this should matter) that simply calls up Firefox and sends the text/markdown to the screen. However, when I view the .md files the margins seem very small to me.

Cheers,

At the top of the Firefox Internet browser are the 2 bars for the function keys and the bookmarks or folders. The background color is light gray as standard and often differs little from the background colors of the Internet pages called up. From my point of view, it would be good if you could choose the background color of these Firefox bars yourself.
