Hey, I have already read the other (closed) forum topics. I have the problem, that on some websites all letters from s to z aren't displayed. When I copy the text and paste it to a text editor all letters are there.

Here's what I tried according to other forum topics... - In the font properties all is set to standard fonts for 'latin' and 'other' (sorry I use Firefox in german so I don't know the correct english terms)

- Disallowing webpages to use their own fonts works, but it's no option as the websites now all have ugly fonts and don't look as they're meant to be.

I use FF 90.0.2 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 Home.

The problem occurred right away after I installed FF on a new computer. I have also tried syncing to my account and de- and reinstalling. Same problem all the time. The problem does not occur in other browsers, like Chrome, Edge, Opera. Only in FF... Any idea what I could do? It would be sad to use another browser in the future, but since I'm also a web developer it's really not an option to work like that... Any help is highly appreciated.

Cheers, Sven

Tell me how to remove FreeTestNow from my PC.

Mozilla Firefox:

   Click the Menu button (three bars) on the right upper corner of the screen
   Select "Options" and click on "Privacy & Security" in the toolbar on the left hand side of the screen
   Scroll down to the "Permissions" section and click the "Settings" button next to "Notifications"
   In the opened window, locate all suspicious URLs, click the drop-down menu and select "Block"

I see no """Options""" when I click the Menu button so I can't remove FreeTestNow from my PC (Catch - 22?)

So how do I get to """Options""", then scroll down to the "Permissions" section?

Thank you for your help.

Unable to print the following webiste using Firefox for Windows 10 (build 2101):

https://www.duckware.com/tech/wifi-in-the-us.html

Only the first and the last pages had content, the rest were all blank pages. It's a long website, and possibly uses custom font. But then not all pages were printed blank.

Tried resetting printer settings and starting in safe mode. No joy.

Micro$oft Edge printed the website fine.

Hi Everyone, When I try to access a particular website, there is no real graphical display - simply text scattered everywhere.

I visit loads of different sites each day, and this is the only one where this problem occurs.

The website Owner thinks it might be something to do with a CSS file(?) but, as I do not have the problem elsewhere, I am unsure.

If anyone can help on this, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.

Hi I have 'restore previous session' set in Firefox and it does this except that I usually close FF with all but one window minimised. When I start FF for the next session it opens all the windows and I have to close them all then choose the one I was using last.

Is it possible to get FF to respect the minimisation of windows over sessions?

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Been using FF since 2005ish. (Me 1946) Latest version (90.0.2 (64-bit) annoys me greatly because I can't remove the unwanted 'Pocket' BS. I've followed several online 'advices' on this, including this site, & still it persists.

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

I have been automatically updated to 90.0.2 on several machines (most 64-bit Windows 7), but there appear to be problems with the latest version. I can't see evidence that these have already been reported.

1) Window update. When the browser window comes to the fore (top of the z-order), or when resurrecting from a minimized state, it does not redraw the whole window. Usually, half is missing. However, a cursor-move event while over the window triggers a redraw.

2) I have just experienced CAPTCHA issues trying to get into an gov.ie website. Instead of showing me text to enter into the field, it just showed a gray square. However ,the same challenge works OK in Chrome (i.e. it's not a problem with the site itself).

Are these known issues? Is there a way to regress to the previous version?

When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

When version 89.2 rolled out, I was highly displeased by the fact that the default theme now no longer properly reflected the Windows theme settings (extremely noticeable on my end, since I use the Windows Classic theme with customized "3D object" colors); this defect had already affected the options dropdown but had now spread to the address/navigation bar, bookmarks toolbar, and scrollbar. This was extremely annoying, especially since none of the add-on themes can properly duplicate that aesthetic function. One of the things I liked about Firefox was that unlike Chrome, Opera, and Edge... it actually still respected the Windows theme settings (which programs like browsers should do by default). And now, that prized trait had been inexplicably and insensibly discarded.

I was further displeased by the removal of the dividing lines between tabs. This made Firefox substantially harder for me to use, almost headache-inducingly so. Whoever you have testing these changes before rollout - if anyone - should be replaced, because this was a massive accessibility downgrade. Unacceptably so.

These changes were so frustrating and ugly, and made the browser so much more difficult for me to use, that I reverted to version 88 and continue to remain on that version.

Does version 90 resolve these issues? If it does, I'll update. But if not.... then in my opinion it should be axed and you should cease pushing it in favor of working on a new version that does fix these poor decisions. And I'll be sticking to version 88 until that happens.

It's really dumb that one can close own Main window without warning that too many tabs are closed or there is another window still running! And that's what happened to me: i had Private window in back, closed Main window thinking that i'm closing browser, and then surprisingly saw Private window is still there. As any ordinary user who already lost tabs in past i panicked and closed the Private window too. Started Firefox once again hoping for restore, but it opened with clear window and obviously there was no "Restore session" button in Menu, as i have "Auto restore" ON in settings.

I started to search for manual way, found descriptions with manual renaming/coping backups from sessionstore-backup folder. Like these= https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1275314 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742 But however i tried to copy and rename - each start Firefox ignores that, clears backup folder and again clear window. Lucky i thought about coping those recover. and previous. files from sessionstore-backup folder after first browser close, so they are safe. And i'm sure my tabs are still there = checked it with https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html.

So yeah, i have at least some way to get back tabs, but i'm really angry and curious to know WHAT is forbidding me to restore that file after manual rename??!
