If I use my touch monitor when a video player is full screen, the full screen Firefox window turns grey and becomes unresponsive to mouse and touch input. I can exit full screen with Esc or F but the problem persists in full screen mode until I restart Firefox. Picture attached is my monitor when Firefox is in full screen mode.

I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

Hi. I am trying to reach a site that I have in the past found a good reference site (if you like reptiles), Ian's Vivarium. I am in up-to-date Firefox for Win10, I have refreshed Firefox to no effect. Error message on the website is: "You are running an unsupported PHP version. Please upgrade to PHP 7.1.3 or higher before trying to install or update to phpBB 3.3" at the top of a wholly blank page.

I get the same error when attempting Chrome and Edge (which crawled back onto my PC uninvited)... maybe a website issue?

Help?

While not totally computer illiterate, I'm pretty close....

Thanks in advance?

Hallo und guten Tag,

ich möchte gern mehrere websites als Startseite haben, wenn ich den Firefox browser öffne. Wie das geht wird auf der Firefox Seite sehr gut erklärt.

Zwar ist es mir gelungen, google als Startseite durch drag & drop auf das Haus Symbol zu ziehen. Jetzt würde ich habe gern weitere Registerkarten als Startseite festlegen.

Wenn ich (wie in der Erklärung) jedoch auf die Menüschaltfläche mit den drei Strichen klicke und danach auf "Startseite" klicke, ist das Fenster "Startseite und neue Fenster" leider inaktiv, so dass ich nicht weiterkomme. Wie kann ich dieses inaktive Fenster aktivieren. Wo liegt der Fehler.

Ich hoffe sehr, dass mir bei diesem Problem jemand helfen kann und würde mich über eine Antwort sehr freuen. Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Beste Grüße, Sabine

I’d appreciate an explanation from someone who knows the background about what happens when websites pass information to each another.

I am using Vanguard’s website, which is the only one (out of those that I use) that prevents me from blocking tracking content and which also forces me to allow social media tracking. If I do not allow this, the website doesn’t work.

I attached two files: a capture of content tracking and a capture of the social media tracking shown by Firefox when I use Vanguard's website.

I would like to understand the following:

1. Is Vanguard the one enabling all of this tracking? If so, do they program it into their website? 2. Is there usually some kind of agreement between Vanguard and the 3rd parties and social media companies that Vanguard passes information to? 3. Is there any financial benefit to a company like Vanguard to do this?

Thanks.

This is really not specifically about Firefox Sync or Firefox itself, but I can't find a better match.

 Months ago I changed my email address with Firefox Accounts.  I currently log in with the new email address and I only see the new email address under my account preferences.  But when I add a new device to Firefox Sync, the "Complete Sync Setup" email is going to my old email address, meaning the one I previously used with my Firefox account.
 Can anyone suggest if there is a way to change this or if there is something I am doing wrong?
 Thanks for any help!

I have had this problem for many years, using many different versions of Firefox, using many different computers, and many different laser printers (both HP and Brother). I don't think it is a problem on my end. I am still mostly using Win 7. Currently using Firefox 83 on some of the computers, others, I'd have to look. The main problem I have is PayPal. When I sell something and want to print out the "packing slip" it tries to print a HUGE page on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, thus I only get a corner (top left) of this huge page. Changing the printers scale does nothing but shrink the "corner of the page" and still print nothing else of the remainder of the page (like it doesn't exist). Changing the page from portrait to landscape does not help. Changing printers does not help. Changing ISP's and physical locations and computers does not help. I have no other problems with other prints form other websites. I have had to install and use Google Chrome in order to print out the packing slips. I would like to NOT have to use Chrome and have two web browsers on my desktop. Any ideas? Thanks.

I have to enter my modem's IP address into the navigation bar, but for some reason keeps converting to a google search. I enter: 192.168. 0.1. when I press return: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=192.168.+0.1. I have gone through all my settings, and cannot find a way out of this! common sense would say that when I added the second "Search" bar next to the "Navigation/Search" bar, the search function would not apply anymore to the Navigation bar. Anyways, Please help if possible.... I'm frustrated!

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.

Whenever I click on Print Edit WE button the edit page opens but all the buttons are inactive and the PE button in the toolbar shows SUS for suspend. Nothing I do fixes it. I've removed and reinstalled the lastest version of PE from the add-on web page 3 or 4 times. A right click on the PE button drops down a menu but the one I need, Edit, puts PE into suspend mode. What could be causing this? I'm running FF 83.0, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro. Print Edit has always worked before. Does the latest version have a bug? Or does FF maybe have a bug?

After updating to FF 83.0 something has changed in font rendering. Another update breaks something for me and another silence in changelog.

When hardware acceleration is enabled in firefox settings I observe that fonts which are overlayed on youtube videos have ugly chromatic aberration effect around them and they are much thinner than they should be. When I disable hardware acceleration they are fine - they look the same as on different browsers, for example Brave.

Is there any way to fix font rendering without need to disable hardware acceleration?

Can Bookmark folders get sorted automatically so that they appear withing the context of all sorted bookmarks, rather than at the top? (I mean within the context of a bookmarked folder.) For example, suppose I have a Bookmarks Folder called Folder A. Its contents look like: Folder Folder Bookmark Bookmark...

But what i want is: Bookmark Bookmark Folder Bookmark Folder (Alpha order assumed.) I want them strictly alpha, regardless of file/folder property, as displayed in 'ls -l'. Having to do this manually is annoying.

Hello, I accidentally removed a extension from one copy of my Firefox Account that syncs. That in turn deleted the extension from another PC. That extension had very valuable information in it I'm trying to recover. Is there anyway to recover to a previous time and date with Firefox sync, and if not can it be done with some work? I did find a Old Firefox Account folder but could not seem to get any of the extension data working again, only to set the extension up again.

Please help if you can! Thank you!

SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER for Google and Youtube

I am getting a certification issue when trying to visit 2 specific sites which are some of the most visited sites in the web: https://www.google.com and https://www.youtube.com

The error it shows when trying to visit these 2 pages, is SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

I have tried to troubleshoot it and follow the solutions recommended at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/error-codes-secure-websites#w_the-error-occurs-on-multiple-secure-sites

however none of the solutions described in this guide worked to solve my problem.

In that guide, one of the suggested solutions is to scan my system for any malware. I used the following: Windows Defender Maleware Bytes AntiMalware Karpersky TDSSkiller however the results are all clean.

In the guide, it suggested that I check the clock as well. The system clock however is synchronized.

Last, I have resetted Firefox Profile but this didnt fix the issue either.

I shall note that the issue appeared yesterday and so far nothing helped fixing it. Not even the system restarts.

The issue about visiting these two sites, is limited only to Firefox.

I can access https://www.google.com and https://www.youtube.com without problems using Google Chrome and the Opera Browser.

Also, Google Mail and Google Translate work fine on Firefox. These two sites can be accessed with Firefox without causing any SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER errors.
