Our barcodes will not show up in firefox but are fine in every other browser. Specifically, it is the code39b font. Is there any way around this in firefox? Allowing websites to choose their own fonts is enabled, and changing/disabling the sandbox also did not help. I have not found any helpful add-ons either. Please share if you have any ideas, thank you!

Excuse my long winded explanation but I have a problem with an Acer Nitro Gaming Laptop that I bought 6 months ago when my HP laptop had a hard drive failure. I purchased the new Acer rather than have my HP repaired. After a month of frustration I sent my old HP for repair and have been waiting for a fix for the Acer that appears to have a software issue not a hardware problem. The issue that I'm having is that no matter which browser I'm using it frequently crashes while web browsing. Depending on which browser I'm using I will get the message Oh dear we encountered a problem, or Oh Snap your page crashed or status_access_violation.

The laptop has done this since fresh out of the box no matter what browser that I use and so far I've tried Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Brave. They all crash which is downright frightening if you are in the midst of doing an online purchase or an online banking transaction. I prefer to use the Firefox browser and have used it for several years.

What I find most interesting is that if I use the old original Internet Explorer that comes in the Windows 10 accessories the laptop is stable and works flawlessly without issues. The main problem is that most web sites no longer support the old explorer and Windows in constantly wanting to update the browser to Edge. Since it works perfectly with the Internet Explorer it leads me to assume that I have a software, coding bug that is unique to the Acer laptop.

In the interim I have a $1,000 doorstop that is of no use to me until a solution is found to this problem. So far I have tried virtually every suggestion out there from updating to the latest versions of the software, trying different browsers and even tried renaming the executable files that initiate the browsers. I have also twice done a full factory reset and started over, none have worked. If anyone out there has a suggestion or solution to this my dilemma please contact me at fhmechanic@gmail.com Thanks!

I installed Firefox 86 and I'm getting Microsoft office pop-up window. I have block pop-ups selected in options. I've uninstalled everything pertaining to Microsoft office and it's still happening. Seems to happen when I hit the page back button on my mouse. I'm running AdBlock Plus. It's driving me crazy. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks much for any help.

Over the last few days my "Find in Page" function has stopped working. If I type Ctrl-F the window opens in the status bar. I can type one letter that highlights some - but not all - instances of that letter on the page. As soon as I type a second letter the field goes pink.

Is it possible this is something easy to fix without having to completely reload Firefox?

Yes, it's a very old version of Firefox. But it's worked perfectly until now.

When I typed any search shortcut (let's say "w" for Wikipedia) and then Space in the address bar, the bar would have just shown "w ".

After an update to 86, now typing "w " shows "Wikipedia" in a blue box instead of "w ". This is extremely irritating because I now can't just press Alt+D and enter a new search shortcut from scratch when I mistyped.

I have both browser.urlbar.update1 and browser.urlbar.update2 set to false.
