Why is Firefox IGNORING any Font Changes? oh yeah and it is actually making them smaller when i try to make them bigger???????????????? And how can i possibly be the first person EVER to have this problem?????????????? Oh yes since I know your "experts" Just Like Google, will ask me a bunch of pointless questions. i am on a Dell running Windows 7 and yes i am going into FIREFOX settings and changing the fonts. They have also already changed on my computer's Display and Appearance Settings. so no one left to blame.

I truly cannot fathom why a browser, in this day & age, cannot put the list of open tabs & windows in the drop-down menu, in even SOME KIND OF ORDER! But no, it's nothing more than a long list, impossible to filter in any way, that is not in chronological, alphabetical, order of most recent used, no option to list via website or page title, etc. This is so ridiculously frustrating, along with the molasses lack of speed in opening up windows or tabs, that I'm on the verge of just chucking this entire app, for good. Why do our state-of-the-art advanced technological devices and apps, feel more like we're going backwards, and not forward??

For some reason I can no longer access a state website (https://legis.wisconsin.gov/) from my laptop, either with Firefox (my normal browser) or Chrome. I get the message that says my request has 'timed out'. However, I CAN access that site from my smart phone, using Firefox. I haven't intentionally changed any settings on my laptop. I have no problems accessing any of my other sites (Gmail, Facebook, etc.). Using Firefox version 93.0 and Windows 8.1

This has been an issue for quite a while but I simply used a different browser for that one particular failing task. For example on costco.com, on the top right-hand corner, there is a 'Find A warehouse' button. When I enter my zipcode, it loads a new page but doesn't load the search results. Same thing with shopping.google.com. Firefox is able to load the search results, but doesn't do anything when I click on an item to show more info about the listing.

I tried with Troubleshoot mode and the issue still persists.

Please help me. I don't want to leave Firefox.

Help please! I'm not tech savvy and I accidentally deleted my Firefox profile.

I was trying to fix my Firefox high CPU issue and followed the advice below. I didn't realize deleting my profile would mean losing everything. Is there a way to restore my old profile? I didn't delete the files from my old profile.

I would greatly appreciate any advice to help fix this. I'm on Windows 10 Pro. Thank you!

"Run" command: firefox.exe -P I deleted my only profile “default” I choose “Don’t delete files” Then I created a new profile

v 91.0.1 on Mac Tried 2 ways. No effect. - Settings >> Privacy and Security >> Cookies and Site Data >> Manage Data, or Clear Data--both leave cookies after Removing or Clearing All. Looks like 16 MB of cookies remain--from 2-3 weeks old. Tried repeatedly-- the list is cleared (while selecting remove All), then immediately comes back in entirety once I check again.

- Menu >> History >> Clear Recent History >> Clear All, "Everything" >> No effect.

- I deleted a Firefox profile that was not in use. No effect.

THX for guidance. best to All.

When I view Morningstar charts, such as the one at: https://www.morningstar.com/funds/xnas/vfiax/performance on my Microsoft Surface Go (Windows 10), in Firefox 93.0 and some previous versions, the legend does not display the line colors for the investment, category and index. The page is displayed correctly in Firefox 93.0 on my Desktop Windows 10 system, and when using Microsoft Edge on the Surface Go. Any suggestions?

I've seen many post about not being able to open dropdown menu in firefox and i was unaware of this problem when creating new web page designs nevertheless, i am now experiencing this problem myself on mobile

most post about not being able to open dropdown menu simply give advice on options i can take on my browser to make it work. But that does not help me as far as clients who come to view my site, meaning my concern is that he end viewer will not see or be able to use the dropdown menus

the dropdown menu does work on firefox on regular computer browser the problem is when viewing the page on mobile on firefox

so to be clear when viewing webpage on regular computer browser using firefox the dropdown menu works when viewing webpage on a mobile using firefox the dropdown menu DOES NOT work

so is there anything i can do as the designer of the webpage to fix my webpage so that it proper displays to the end client on their mobile phone?

here is the page https://www.spellswork7.com/spells.html

any help would be greatly appreciated thank you

How do I stop all installed firefox extensions from loading their main page after syncing?

every time I sync from a different computer or version of windows all the extensions load up their main author page all at the same time overtaking my browsing session so that I have to manually close each tab

its very frustrating On a side note Also after unnecessarily refreshing firefox and before manually changing proxy settings to "no proxy" after each refresh (Why is no proxy not the default setting anymore?) why was every webpage blocked and needing a security certificate? even google.com? and not long ago firefox crashed every tab, constantly, it wasnt even usuable but Im so dependant on its features I tolerated it but cant afford to much longer I have to use Chrome for my business as firefox doesnt always capture login/password for autologin nor for address, etc -fill in

I have used firefox for many years and really like it overall. One real problem is not being able to open new tabs to my home page (or what ever page I define to open). I have contributed to the project several times over the years but I am considering a replacement because of this issue. My hope is you might provide some solution without an addon, which always brings overhead. Please advise. Joe

My 11-year-old PC (custom build, now running Windows 10) crashed badly (hard drives and Windows 10 were irretrievably broken), so I bought a new motherboard, etc. and installed a new OEM copy of Windows 10. I must reinstall almost all software, including Firefox. The old C: drive SSD is intact. After I install Firefox on the new machine, how can I restore the tabs from the last Firefox session?

I had to put in a new hard-drive into my computer that I previously was running Firefox browser on so I downloaded the Firefox back on after the new hard-drive was done. Before on my old hard-drive when I click Firefox browser and it came on, it had a ribbon across the top of the screen underneath the back arrow, forward arrow, and search URL that I used the most of in my favorites (I think it showed across the screen about 10 of my bookmarks) to click on instead of going into all my bookmarks to get. How can I put my most used bookmarks across the top of screen now instead of just clicking the "star" that show ALL my bookmarks and I have to go down to whichever one I want to use and boy do I have a bunch of bookmarks even thou they are in alphabet order? I hope someone can tell me how to do this!

Hi,

I keep getting the "Secure Connection Failed" error message on Google websites (search engine, Gmail, Agenda, Meet, etc.). Usually I can first access the website fine for while, but after a few minutes I get a "you're offline" popup and refreshing the page gives the error. Sometimes I get the error right away.

I've seen many others ask that question, and I've tried this: - enable/disable ocsp stapling - enable/disable HTTP3 - empty the cache

Some other facts : - There is no additional info on the error page (it's not one of the "SSL version unsupported" or "Add an exception" pages) - I'm on Windows, with the latest Firefox version (although this problem has been going on for a while) - The only antivirus is Windows Defender - I'm not behind a proxy or VPN - This happens at work, and at least 3 of my colleagues have the issue - It sometimes happens on non-Google websites, but very rarely - Firefox for Android works fine on my phone on the same WiFi network

I appreciate any help in resolving this, it's getting to the point where I have to use Chrome to work.

Cheers,

YouTube TV Buffering Problem with Firefox

I have hit what appears to be a "YouTube TV" (vs YouTube) buffering problem. It happens only with Firefox on my PCs. After a few seconds to a minute of playing a TV program or movie, the video/audio stops with a spinning arrow. If I previously had turned on "stats for nerds" to monitor this, I can see when network activity stops and the buffer then eventually gets exhausted.

This does NOT happen when running YouTube TV on my TVs or on my iPhone. Probably more significant, it does NOT happen with YouTube TV under either Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome on these PCs. If I run Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode, i.e., no add-ons, extensions, etc., the problem still exists, so it is not just some rogue add-on, but is related to Firefox itself. The problem appears to be only for "YouTube TV" on Firefox since, for example, videos played from YouTube (vs "YouTube TV") do not have the problem under Firefox.

I tried rebooting my router as well as the PCs. The problem still existed. The PCs are high speed and the internet connection is fiber optic. One of the PCs is connected by Ethernet; the other is wireless. Download/upload speeds are over 900 Mbps on the Ethernet PC. I have not seen slow network indications on anything except this "YouTube TV" with Firefox mixture. Hardware does not seem to be the issue.

Apparently the problem is software. I also tried temporarily disabling my antivirus/firewall software. No change. I'm running Windows 10 version 21H1 and Firefox 88.0.1. I'm new to YouTube TV; although most of my viewing with it has been done on TVs, I don't recall seeing this problem in my PC tests a month or so ago.
