Fonts won't be correctly recognized by Firefox and text is then displayed garbled (see attached example). I use Firefox 89.0.1 (64-bit) on a MacBook Pro.

I've tried the following to fix this: I've cleaned out my cache and cookies. In Preferences/Languages/Fonts I've changed the san-serif type to Arial (helped some but not all); I've unchecked and then checked again "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selection above." I've started looking at the html code to figure out the font settings but I really just need to have a functioning brower.

Any thoughts? I'd be very grateful. It's impacting my work, and I'm having to use other browers, which function without issues - but I like Firefox! This is a bummer. Thanks!

Wanted to stop using the URL box for my SEARCHES and stick with the old SEARCH box because if my 'search' did not find what I was looking for, I could just change a word or two instead of typing the whole darn thing all over again. Your Forum advised to use the 'about:config' and the "Handoff" option. I may have changed "HANDOFF" default my mistake as could not find a list of default values. So, 1. What is the default value for HANDOFF? 2. Is there a LIST of the defaults, TRUE or FALSE in case I need to 'monkey' with 'about:config' in the future. I am not at all happy with some of the changes in rel 89.0 and 'messing' with the URL box, the SEARCH box, etc. 3. I tried to "go back" to previous a release and avoid/skip rel 89.0 but was forced to because of PROFILES, there locations, multiple ones and not knowing the 'most recent' to choose so was forced to use rel 89.0.

Thank You.

I intentionally set my browser so that I can search from the search box in the center of this page. However, when I start typing in that box I get all kinds of stuff from the address bar blocking the box and what I'm typing. I don't want to search from the address bar, I want to use that search box. How do I get this feature back?

Before, all I had to do was uncheck the box in the second screen shot but that no longer seems to work. What's the new trick or why have the search box if you can't search from it?

Also, after a search, my links always opened in a new tab. That no longer seems to be working that way. I prefer my links open in a new tab in case I want to look at other results while keeping that tab available.

Previously I used to use "Forget This Website" from the History panel to quickly clear the history of a specific website. But it was not deleting it's saved passwords. Now I realize, that when I Forget a Website, it actually does delete the saved passwords too. I am confused now. Was this behavior always like this? can it be that because I have Sync on several devices, the deleted password gets restored somehow? I would like to be able to forget a website without loosing it's login details...

Firefox 90b8 (64 bit). Note: I had previously been using 32-bit and it would crash once or more per day WITH crash files, many of which were (I think) submitted to you. My PC may be a factor: It's a "new old stock" (vintage 2016 or so) Pipo X9S. This model has 4 GB RAM and a 64 GB EMMC "disk." All disk operations are pathetically slow and I suspect this a factor in the poor performance.

I'd been hoping to see if the 64-bit build works better or could provide crash files. Clearly there's still something broken, but why no crash message/file?

The PC itself has been checked as well as I can. Latest win10 with all updates. Chkdsk /F finds no errors. I even downloaded and ran MEMTEST86 -- no problems there.

Firefox's "Use" is typically streaming music (SoundCloud) but many crashes happen when also doing normal web browsing in a 2nd tab.

Can someone help me to set up crash messages and reporting? Thank you.

I have cleared cookies, site preferences, disabled tracking protection, disabled adblockers, and since yesterday still cannot log into nike.com, all I get is a dialog box saying server error.

Nike disavows all knowledge of this problem even though there are tweets from 2017 referencing this exact same problem back then, but nike says no problems now, so it's just me!

Is it Firefox or Nike?? All other sites I have tried are fine, I used chrome to log into nike.com and no problem even though it seems same protections enabled there so there is something wrong with firefox and nike, and I am not about to do anything drastic to firefox for one website.. Anyone have any ideas, solutions, etc.? thanks

Starting with Firefox Browser v89.0.1 (64-bit), when I maximize the window on my laptop (primary screen) there is a white bar covering the navigation bar.

I noticed a similar issue in a question posted back in 2015.

Pressing Alt+Space and selecting Restore gives me access to move the window again.

If I click on the white bar, it actually clicks the window behind Firefox and brings it to the front.

Pressing F11 enters Full Screen mode, and the Bar still shows, but pressing F11 again returns to Maximized with the white bar gone.

I run FF on both a Windows machine and a MacBook Pro. On the MBP the browser does not save my tabs, despite "restore previous session" being selected. I do not have this problem on the Windows machine.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser but it has not made a difference.

I'm running the latest version of the browser and the OS is Big Sur.
