Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

Beginning about a week or so ago, I can no longer read pages from the Guardian. The page loads correctly but it has no scroll bar and so I can't read the article. I can *see* the entire article by shrinking the text, so I know it is there. For example, this page:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/sep/23/california-cars-electric-vehicles-gavin-newsom-climate-change

is one that doesn't scroll [just to be clear: none do these days, but i just picked one, double checked that it couldn't scroll and posted it here]. I've looked at the page with ChrEdge and it renders [and scrolls] without a problem.

I haven't run into this problem with any other websites, so I dunno what's going wrong.

Message always pops up in WIN 10 saying Mozilla Firefox is not is not my default browser even though it is. I have decided to use Firefox over Edge as my default browser in Win 10 but every time I start Firefox a message pops up saying Firefox is not my default browser. I have gone to the next screen and confirm that it is. but each time I open and close Firefox the message reappears! I have gone on internet and tried all the solutions suggested like reinstalling, going into default apps through control panel, through the CMD prompt, etc and still no fix seems to work. The message is annoying to no end as each time I start Firefox I have to click through two extra screens to start using it. I have no problem with Chrome but I prefer Firefox because certain sites don't work well with Chrome for some reason and Firefox works well but this is getting annoying switching between apps or clicking these extra keys. I noticed a lot of people are having the same issue with WIN 10. I have no problems on my Win 7 computer but I am thinking of upgrading it and of course it will come with Win 10 so I want to solve this problem if I can now. Any new "fix" since last I checked? I have tried all so far suggested online with no success. I do note it is a it is a WIN 10 and Firefox problem. Is there anyone from MS or Mozilla that can help?

I re-installed Firefox to begin using it as my main Web Browser and the icon in the taskbar is a white sheet of paper and I'd like the Fox icon. It took me a while to configure Firefox with all my imported bookmarks, etc. so I'd like to find a fix without deleting and re-installing the software. Was thinking/hoping the icon could be copied/placed in the root directory of the software?

When I'm using FF on my Mac, Catalina OS, and click on telephone numbers in websites, they always open up Skype, which I don't want them to do.

Instead, I want them to take me to Facetime and dial the number there.

Is there some configuration in my Preferences or an add-on that is causing phone numbers to open Skype instead of Facetime?

What can I do to get it open Facetime and dial there instead of Skype?

I am using Blackboard for school and everything has been working perfectly for weeks until today. When I went to my courses page only two were available. I cleared my cache and cookies, cleared browsing history with all boxes checked, refreshed Firefox 2 times and nothing has helped. If I resize the page randomly then two more courses appear, but the fifth is still missing. When I log in through Chrome or Safari everything is there normally. What else can I do to fix this? Thanks!

If you lower mtu to 400 when using Firefox The problem occurs in the latest version 78.3esr.

The site doesn't open properly You can reconnect countless times over and over again, The page does not open.

This issue did not occur in the 68.12esr version.

There was no problem in the lower version even in the non-esr version. When the version was upgraded, the symptoms appeared. I've been using 68.12esr.

I can not speak English well.

Korea is a country that blocks sites using https. Adjusting mtu is a necessary measure for Koreans.
