I'm not sure if it's a quirk of my organisation's corporate Windows setup, but when I download and install Firefox (with my user having elevated permissions to be able to install apps for all users), it never prompts me at all for where to install, or says that it will install in one location or another, but I end up with two shortcuts on my desktop, one in the expected 'Program Files' location for all users, but another pointed at a second install in my user's AppData directory.

I could kind of understand it just installing in AppData if it didn't have permission to install in 'Program Files' - but for some reason it is installing in both locations in one go? Is this a bug in the installer?

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.

Storing the Firefox user-profile on a SMB-share not working

Hi,

I have a problem with Firefox 102.5esr on MacOS 10.13 and storing the user-profile on a SMB-share in the intranet.

On startup I get the error "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional" and as expected, bookmarks and history are not working. Access etc. in the network are correct, I tried it with two different clients on two different servers (Linux-Server and NAS), the profile is a fresh created, deleting and recreating does not help.

If I copy the created profile on the local disk, Firefox starts without an error, bookmarks/history are working, if I copy this profile back to the SMB-share, I get back the error-message.

In the past (I don't remember when it was and which version) this was working with Firefox and today it still works with the current Thunderbird.

Any ideas?

PS: The described solutions in the KB are not working: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

Thanks, kind regards, tg

Garbled font in Firefox on macOS Monterey (12.6.1)

Hello :)

I'm using Firefox 107.0 on macOS 12.6.1 and I'm having weird issues with the displayed font. It appears on the startup screen of Firefox and on websites (see screenshots attached).

The garbled font is called ".SF NS".

I've tried turning the option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" on and off without success.

I have also tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration - also without luck.

The issue does **not** appear in safe mode. Unfortunately resetting the theme and disabling all extensions hasn't helped either :(

I have also downloaded and installed a font called "SFNS Display" but the issue persists.

Uninstalling Firefox (with AppCleaner) and reinstalling hasn't fixed the problem.

I don't know what else to try. Can someone help me please? :)

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance

Hi. I have experienced some font encoding problem occurring in the latest version of Firefox, not in previous versions. My system is Mac OS Monterey 12.3.1 and Firefox version 107.0

On some sites the fonts looks totally garbled (see provided screenshots). Disabling "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" in Firefox settings fixes the problem, but then all websites I visit displays with default fonts and not as intended. Moreover, I'm a web designer working with the built in web developer tools, and I need to see the correct fonts when developing.

Hoping to get some help with this issue.

Certain websites make my external monitor go black. Most websites are fine, but for some it just goes to black. Only removing and attaching the HDMI to my laptop again, will make the screen return to normal. Could some kind of DRM check be the issue in some way? This is because it happens on netflix.com for example, or apple tv+.

Hej

(Jeg er lidt forvirret over at ende et sted, hvor der "tales" engelsk, når jeg startede på den danske supportside ...)

Endelig er det lykkedes mig at undgå, at Edge konstant installerede sig selv. Det har jeg kæmpet med.

Nu vil jeg gerne spørge om Firefox kan hjælpe mig med at undgå den "reklame" for Edge, der vises de fleste gange, når jeg trykker på "Søg" nede i venstre hjørne.

Den irriterer mig, fordi: 1. Jeg aldrig nogensinde skal have Edge 2. Den tager pladsen for vigtigere ting 3. Krydset til at lukke med forsvinder, når jeg bevæger cursoren derop ad.

Kan I mon hjælpe?

I have an HTML page which embeds my Google Calendar. (My school uses Google for Education.) That Google Calendar is set to show event details to members of my school. Using all other browsers that I have tried, this works fine: If a user is signed in to Google and accesses the HTML page, they see the embedded calendar with event details. However, if anyone (including myself) access the page through Firefox, the embedded calendar is shown with the events labeled only as "busy."

I have not tested every possible combination, but I should at least be able to view my own calendar. What could be causing this? I can try modifications either in the Firefox I'm using to view the page, or modifications to the HTML page itself.

I am using the latest version of Firefox with Mojave on a Mac.

Lately I have experienced slowness despite the fact that I didn't add any software and I have Norton checking for viruses. Recently I got a message "Your system has run out of application memory" when I had 5 tabs open in Firefox. I checked Activity Monitor and it showed Firefox using 1.16 GB. 7 other apps were open, the next one with the highest memory usage was Mail (465 MB). Activity Monitor showed 30 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content entries.

I attached a screen capture showing what Firefox was using in one of these instances. Is this "normal" with 5 tabs open?

I closed the open tabs and quit Firefox. Memory usage by Firefox went down, but after a short time the problem happened again.

A search on the internet showed lots of similar complaints about FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content. Is this a known bug? Any way to avoid this problem?

Thanks.

Gets lost (half of them to say the least) every time Firefox updates. I checked the box that ask for saving the logins and password in the Privacy and Security section and this feature has always been active. I must have saved logins for 36 websites and email providers. Very vicious cycle and you know how frustrating this can be. Well you can help by either fixing this bug or do away the feature all together. Because next time this happens AGAIN I'll revert back to good 'ol Google chrome and never get back to using Firefox ever.

Containers are useful for using multiple accounts/logins in one browser instance. However, Google Docs does not work correctly. Every time I open a Google Docs/Sheets/etc. file in one container, it loads in a new tab in another container. It does this even if I copy the link into a tab with the correct container. I need to keep my Google accounts separated: one is personal, the other is for work. I like Firefox, and use it to get away from Google in other ways. But I can't escape Google because of work and sharing files with certain people. I hope there is a fix for this. Thanks in advance.
