Firefox UI font messed up on Ubuntu. How to reset?

Hi, I'm using Firefox 90 browser on Ubuntu 21.04. Somehow the UI font for my profile changed from the default and I can't find any way to reset it (see bad_ui_font.png) My tabs, menus and preferences all got set to some fixed-width font, and I can find anywhere in the preferences or about:config, or in my profile folder where I can change it back. If I create a new profile, then the UI font is fine (see good_ui_font.png). But as soon as I login to my firefox account and sync, then the new profile gets the bad UI font. I don't want to have to recreate my profile from scratch and lose all my settings just to correct the UI font. But this is very annoying. How can I restore the default UI font?

Thanks.

I have searched and tried every change / setting I can find to disable the automatic updates of Firefox. I am using Firefox because I use to have control over the browser and it was tracking / spying on everything I do like Chrome. Having Firefox automatically update without my permission I see as no different then a virus and spy ware. I am in the middle doing some work and have to stop and loos everything I am doing because you pushed an unneeded unwanted update. This is not acceptable! I do not need some company that thinks they know what I should have on my computer. That is why I don't use Windows. I don't need some corporate suite telling me what is best for my computer.

How do I turn off automatic updates and all / any nag messages.

Problem with printing at reduced scale, did not notice it before a few days ago so could have been after a recent update. Am now using Firefox 90.0 for Linux Mint 19.3. Printing to US Letter size (which had been broken with "na_letter" being stuffed in to the config at one point, but I switched it back to "US Letter" and then it started working again a few months ago - Thank you).

I see some similar questions listed, so this may be simply adding information to something known:

Printing with "Fit to page fit" works fine, with correct preview. Print with scale set to 100% works fine, with correct preview.

Printing with scale set to less than 100% (say 70% or 80%) showed in the preview the page rescaled as expected. The actual printed output is also rescaled as expected, but the page size gets cropped at the right and bottom by what appears to be the same percentage, ending up with lost content. The bit that does print seems to match what is shown in the print preview perfectly, suggesting it would have been totally perfect if the print area had not been cropped along with reducing the text and image sizes.

I tried the "Print using the system dialogue" option, and the printed result had the same pathology.

Same problem also happens when I print to PDF. For this I tried doing the same thing twice, both scaled at 70%, and on comparing found that the preview in firefox had also become cropped a bit but not to the same extent. I did not notice any cropping for the first print to PDF, but now seem unable to get back to what I saw originally in the preview, with correct resizing and no cropping. Playing around some more with printing at 100% vs 70% vs 80% to "fit to page width", I seem to be getting changing crops happening each time in the preview for the reduced sizes.

But the preview and print are both still correct for 100% scaling and for "fit to page width".

Sample web page I used here was https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a-shoulder-workout-for-better-posture?utm_source=pocket-newtab The screen shot shows the preview after the first reduced print to PDF, with no settings changed. The little bit of side cropping seen in the preview did not happen when I did the first print to PDF.

I have a HP office jet 6500 printer. It has been working fine from my Ubuntu Computer using Firefox . Since downloading the latest version of Firefox I cannot connect to the printer and there for cannot print or scan.

The printer is still working normally from a second computer using Windows10.

I have tried re installing the printer but that has made no difference.

I am wondering if the problem could be caused by the Firefox fire wall. Help please. Please note I don't even know enough to be dangerous so any help will need to be extremely basic. I know my name everything else will need to be explained step by step,

Thanks

John

Hello everyone,

I believe I asked this about a year back, and the answer is that is wasn't possible.

I would like a specific behaviour on firefox. That, whenever I open it, it does the exact same thing. It opens a single new window. That it never ever tries to restore the last session. That it always starts fresh.

Preferably even if it "crashed", I tend not to close the browser but shut down with the tabs and apps open.

Intuitively this sounds to me like it should be easy to set, but I haven't been able to find a way.

Also, if possible I would like the rest of history to work. I find that history is useful, it's the session specifically I'd like it to forget / not try to resotre.

Thanks,

Sashin

I am unable to find the menu option under "Web Developer Tools" -> "..." drop down menu as described at the below page.

https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/debugging/#debugging-popups

Also manually changing the "about:config" properties related to "devtools.popup.disable_autohide" and "ui.popup.disable_autohide" appear to have no effect at stopping html popups from being hidden when selecting the web developer tools window.

Is anyone else able to make this work?

I found the following curious commit which makes it sound like it may have been disabled on purpose, but I'm uncertain.

How to set location of temporarily download files Firefox linux

Under Ubuntu. If an application is set to be the default file handler for a certain type of file, Firefox will allow you to open such a download directly in the application. To do this, it saves the file in a temporary location, and then hands over to the application. The problem is that the location firefox uses under Linux is /tmp and modern snap and flatpak desktop apps are not allowed to see /tmp.

For instance, a .deb file is an installable software package. Ubuntu naturally uses the Software app to handle .deb files. But Software is a sandboxed snap app, and it won't open files in /tmp

The workaround of saving files and opening them from the app works, but it defeats the purpose of having registered file handlers.

And I do not know how to get firefox to save temporary download files somewhere else. I can't find any relevant configuration option.

I tried editing the firefox launcher:

env TMPDIR=/home/tim/tmp_firefox firefox

but it still uses /tmp

Are those buttons (behind the "page actions" one) supposed to be definitively absent from version 90 on?

They seemed to me one of the most intelligent features in Firefox interface. Some can be added under "customize" option, but copy link and pint tab are not.

Is this removal based on the idea that addons are supposed to provide the same actions anyway?

Hi, whenever I start Firefox up, one of the tabs randomly closes. This happens both with tabs from last session as well as newly opened bookmarks. Both on Windows 10 and Linux (MX Linux, Debian 9). Only one tab has to be "sacrificed" apparently, so I usually open the last bookmark twice.

What could be causing this? I attached what Extensions I'm currently using.

According to various help articles, I should be able to export my logins and passwords using the Settings- logins and passwords and then click on the three dots in the upper right. That should display a menu with an option to export. In my case, when I click on the three dots I get only these options: Preferences, Help, Lockwise for Android, Lockwise for iPhone/iPad. There is no option to export anywhere on the page. How can I backup and logins so that I can load them on my new computer? As above, Firefox version is 72.0.2 and I am using Linux Mint 19.3.
