Best fonts for different sizes

I am an older Firefox user and I often find myself enlarging and decreasing size of fonts on different websites to make them readable. Lately I notice I am having trouble with the fonts I am using so I need advice. What are the good fonts to use for Firefox? Also, what is the setting to adjust the fonts Firefox uses in the toolbars and address bar?

I am currently using as follows: Default: MIcrosoft Sans Serif (I like the clean lines of a sans serif, but I'm not wedded to any particular one. ) Size: 10 Proportional: Sans Serif Serif: Newsreader Sans Serif: MIcrosoft Sans Serif Monospace: Lucida Sans Font size: 10 Minimum size: 9

The problem I am having is that text in the address bar is often unreadable due to artifacts that look like a digital font, you know, the blocks? If I highlight the URL inside, the artifacts clear up. I reinstalled Firefox but that problem didn't go away. I need to know which font Firefox uses for that area before I can even begin to try to fix it. Any font suggestions are also welcome. I particularly would like fonts that are readable in many sizes and free of flourishes.

By the way, I chose the image of Google News because I also have trouble with alt text showing, I can't figure out how to get rid of that so any ideas are welcome. It's just Google.

Not sure why the bookmarks was changed to double spaced, but I do not like it at all. Please post a work around to make the bookmarks single spaced. I was able to change how they are spaced in the bookmarks bar, but not the rest of the bookmarks that are at the top of the page under the favorites icon.

The latest version has been loaded onto my PC. The list of bookmarks, in the drop down menu, has increased in the spacing between the lines. Now my bookmarks list goes off the bottom of the screen, whereas before my bookmarks were all visible. Is there a simple way of reducing the gap between the lines, the font size is OK.

I cannot add a Zoom meeting to an Outlook meeting using my Outlook Web app. The Zoom add-in is installed and the button appears in the Web app. When I click it, I get the message "Zoom is working on your Add a Zoom Meeting request." But it just hangs there.

The Zoom add-in works using my Outlook Desktop client on the Mac and using Outlook Web in Chrome. Firefox seems to be the issue. Any idea what I can try to fix this?

Please help me get rid of the stupid and ugly Tab bar space on newest Firefox. I hate Tabs and now there is a big space above the address bar for Tabs. I have looked everywhere for a way to turn it off like it has been since Tabs came out. I only want new windows if I want a new window.

If I can't turn that huge space gap off is there any way to go back to what I had before the last update without messing everything up? Why did someone decide to make the browser window smaller and waste that space by making the browser bigger....

Sorry if I sound cranky but, I started using Netscape Navigator 1.0 and every version since and this is the worse thing that has ever been done to a browser... Thank you for any help you can give me!

Each time I perform a search in the search / URL bar in Firefox or on the Google.com website, the search results page scrolls to the bottom of the page automatically. I have no idea why. The issue does not occur in Chrome.

I am using Windows 10, Firefox version 89.0.2.

Basically, after I search, I have to scroll back up to the top of the Google search results page. Even after I have scrolled back up to the top of the page and clicked on the first link, once I go back to the Google search results page, the screen automatically scrolls to near the bottom of the page. It is extremely annoying, somebody please help. I can't find anything online about it. I don't think this is a scroll anchoring issue. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP.

When I use firefox on my main display (1920x1080 144h 16:9) in full screen there is a noticeable white line in the bottom, not using full screen fixes it, but a pain in the ass to resize it all the time. I tried using the browser on my secondary smaller display (1920x1080 60h 16:9) and there is no white line. This seems to be a bug, how do i fix it?

I have Firefox home with a search engine as home page, but since the update to 89, when I try to type into the search box, it jumps to the address bar. This is very annoying. Can it be fixed? I do not want to use the address bar this way. I found a help that said to open the application menu and click "customize" but there is no "customize" option there. In the attached photo, I clicked in the search box to place the cursor there, but as soon as I began typing, it jumped to the address bar. This has never happened to me before in the 15 years I have used Firefox. I am a recent convert to Linux (about 1 year now) and am using Mint 19.3, Cinnamon 4.4.8, if that makes a difference.

Hey all,

I upgraded firefox to 89.0 (firefox for ubuntu). When playing videos it now uses RDD process instead of Web Content. The problem however comes from the resources "RDD process" uses. It is consistently at 100% usage of a CPU core and this is causing my fans to be really loud. I fixed this by changing media.rdd-process.enabled to disabled in about:config and this fixed the system resource issue but I don't think this is what is meant to happen.

As far as I know "RDD process" is meant to use the GPU. My computer has a dedicated GPU so I am at a loss as to what is going on here. Anybody who has any idea?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I am running the latest version of FF and Win 10 64 bit. When I access our local DIY store, bunnings.com.au, I get an error message "some error occurred". Pressing F5 gets me to the site. This does not occur on Chrome, Edge or another PC with the same versions of FF and Win 10.

Running FF in troubleshoot mode does not resolve the issue, neither does clearing cache.

However, if I open google.com.au and search for bunnings, then click on the link in the result, I do not get the error.

Does any body have any ideas? AFAIK, it started when Bunnings moved to a new website design.

Regards,

Steve

I know that clearing browser cookie regularly is a good practice, but I am a bit curious if clearing out those session cookies is the same as if you log out of all the accounts manually.

Because logging out manually will make both local and server side session cookies invalid, thus log out safely.

Meanwhile clearing browser cookies only delete local side session cookie, while the session cookie on the server remains. Which means the session is still valid.

So do I clear browser cookies or log out manually if I want to log out of all accounts?

I used the ProctorU extension to complete a PCNA exam. But it is still in my browser (image of an owl in the top left corner) This is very alarming to me, as it is not visible in the "Manage Your Extensions" list, and also very annoying because I don't have any way to get rid of it. What is going on here? Is Firefox secure? How does this thing have hooks into my browser and how do I get rid of it?

I've seen some solutions that mentioned creating userChrome and userContent files but they were outdated and I think there should be simpler solution. A friend of mine has basic Firefox version and she said she has never met with such problem.

I've tried:

  • Clearing cache and cookies
  • Creating some Chrome files
  • Disabling addons

I don't think it's Firefox Developer Edition's problem as the issue has been persistent for some time/updates now.
