I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

I stopped using Chrome a while ago and I use, ahem, Bing for searches. Sometimes, when I click on a link I get a "404. That’s an error. The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know." while using Firefox. I copy the link and paste it into the browser Edge and the site comes up no problem. Does firefox used a cached version of Google while Edge does not? Is there a way to resolve this?

I decided to stop using Google some time ago so made the full time change to Firefox and a different search engine. A tad bothersome that Google is still there. Not really interested in going to MS Edge...

Currently, I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Fedora 31. Recently, it's started opening most, but not all links in a new window instead of the current one. Not on all sites, but most. As a pair of examples, it opens links to articles on gasbuddy.com in a new window but not on Slashdot, and until a few months ago, it only opened a new window if I right-clicked and selected New Window from the context menu. I'd like to get the old behavior back, as this is quite inconvenient.

Hi community,

Somehow the Other Bookmarks folder showed up at the end of my bookmarks bar. I am pretty sure it was not there yesterday. I assume that somehow I accidentally placed it there.

The problem is that I can't either move it, or remove it from there. When you select it, delete option is grey and not available. Does anyone now exactly how to remove it from the bookmarks bar?

Thank you people... :)

I need to clear my personal data out of a computer before I return it to its owner. I am **absolutely** appalled and shocked by the fact that it seems to be impossible to clear out all my stored passwords on this firefox browser installation, unless I simply uninstall firefox -- which is exactly what I am about to do. And now that I am aware of this appalling security flaw, I am sorry to say that I will be uninstalling it from everywhere else I use it too.

How can it possibly be that it is thought to be "OK" that in order to remove stored passwords, the user must remove each individual password separately. In my case, that is 227 passwords!! I can clear all browsing history, all cookies, all site-cache data, etc etc.... but several minutes of searching, both in the settings and more generally online, only has produced a way to remove passwords one at a time?

If i have missed the UI to do this, then I apologize for being so annoyed -- but in that case I must report that the feature is EXTREMELY well hidden.

I just cannot BELIEVE any browser I sign into with firefox sync almost instantly copies 227 passwords of mine onto a machine, and that I cannot remove them without doing several HUNDRED clicks.

What am I failing to understand here?

It would be much appreciated if some future answer to this question could also be sent to [email]@gmail.com. I do not think i will be logging into my firefox account again until I can feel more secure that the act of logging in won't copy hundreds of passwords in a way which I then need to spend hours removing.

I loved this browser, but unless I am mistaken about this problem, I'm afraid I simply can no longer use it.

This particular firefox browser is running on an old old lubuntu 386 laptop. Or rather, it is about to be "was running." Perhaps this is a problem in some old old version of firefox which I am running because I am on such an old machine. It is 84.0.2 (32 bit) running on an old old Acer Aspire One. If that is the case, may I a suggest that you add to your support pages some information on how to remove ALL saved logins in a single act.

Thank you scott petrack

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

I noticed when I try to click on a link to print something the printing dialogue will be kind of out of focus (hidden) so I can't do anything but press ESC to get out of it. When I scale the Firefox window to a smaller size it works as intended. On my 2560x1440 screen it works in all window sizes. Only on my 3840x2160 screen this happens when the window is maximized. Would be nice if somebody could fix this! Thank you! Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Win 10.

When viewing for example the Guardian international site , there is always a kind of a slideshow in the most important topic. Today for example Biden und a bunch of pictures Trump leaving. Sometimes i like to have a closer look on one of pictures. There is no copy/save image than. I like to have a kind of pause button to interrupt the playing. Im running linux/ubuntu, but on win10 the same. So I use the Print button to make a hardcopy, but this is not very "elegant". Any suggestions ? It's not a kind of blocking a popup.

Firefox slows down or even freezes for a longer time when I am typing in text in forms (like new GMAIL messages, search boxes, etc). Especially when I make mistakes and delete some.

I have Refreshed Firefox and removed the Adblocker add-on, which I thought might cause the problem, but the problem persists.

Any idea how to tackle this?

On my old computer - Linux Mint 19 with current Firefox installed, I had enabled an account and set a master password. Now I'm upgrading to a new computer. Firefox does not recognize the old master password. I found the setting to enable a new account password, but through the multiple jumps needed to get this set up, it frequently locks me out for 15 minutes. You encouraged saving passwords in Firefox. Switching the method for storing the passwords between versions and then having frequent 15 minute lockouts will make me abandon this platform. I don't have time for this. I do have my passwords backed up, but there is no where in Firefox that I can see in the passwords section to import from Firefox. I'm very disappointed.

How do I remove one of these copies cleanly? The only problem it causes is that firefox appears twice on the default browser settings page, which is annoying.

The video either doesn't load or shows the "Error loading player: No playable sources found" error.

I had no extensions installed, tried refreshing, tried disabling hardware acceleration; nothing solved it.

All content plays fine on chrome.
