Just updated to FF17.0 and the fonts look awful, something like when the ClearType is enabled in Windows. I have ClearType disabled cause I hate the look of the fonts with it enabled, and now Firefox looks like it's all over it. Font is like bolded. What happened? Can I disable it somewhere in Firefox?

Yesterday all of a sudden my webpages and UI appeared to be magnified. While I can zoom out on websites, I cannot find any option to adjust the size of the UI.

I noticed that Firefox 22 (which I am running) has a new feature: "Windows: Firefox now follows display scaling options to render text larger on high-res displays". Is it possible to adjust how Firefox responds to the display scaling options perhaps?

The font-rendering in Firefox 4 RC doesn't look quite right; the fonts are too light and seem a bit blurry. With hardware acceleration disabled, they look much better, but I'd rather not disable hardware acceleration if possible since I would lose out on the benefits of it. Here are some comparisons: Internet explorer and Firefox 4 RC font-rendering and Firefox 3.6.15 and Firefox 4 RC font-rendering You can also see how the spacing is a bit odd with Firefox 4 RC.

This is on Windows 7 SP1 64-bit with a Radeon HD5850 (latest drivers) if it makes any difference.

Is my only option to disable hardware acceleration?

No saving of Tabs. Any suggestion? Tkx Yve

Please please tell me there's a way to downgrade without having to uninstall and loose everything.

I was lissening to online radio. Firefox needed to update. After the latest update the windows media player plugin dissapeared from the add-on list, while still being installed correct. I reinstalled it, but that didn't work. I replaced/deleted some files in firefox as suggested for similiar problems, but that didn't work either. Now I can't play wmp files anymore on firefox.

I hope u can help me solve this problem.

I frequently watch Fox News Channel live on Firefox in Windows 10. The FNC player no longer works on Firefox 52 and 53, so I have been using MS Edge to watch FNC. I think the problem may have started with Firefox 52. I would prefer to use Firefox for all my browsing.

The reload circle goes and stops and goes and stops when I open email on Hotmail site. Photos in emails flash (appear-disappear-reload, etc., endlessly). All worked perfectly this morning, and then this afternoon new version installed, and now it's so messed up as to be unusable on that site. No problem in IE8. Disabled ABP, and it's not causing the problem (although I did send them a report).

Is there a fix for this?

When I visit this site:http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html I can no longer see the image thumbnails when I click on the image IDs. I contacted the site owner, and he said it worked for FF on his computer, but I'm afraid my javascript isn't working here. I did everything, cleared the cookies, ran Safe Mode, checked options- though i may have goofed. And I'm almost sure javascript is enabled here. I have Win XP. I don't want to check another browser; if the problem is here than it needs fixing. I'm waiting more word from the site owner, but I tried everything he suggested. So what do I do? Do I download another Javascript?

How do I set the default font size to a lower value?

I recently got the Firefox 22.0 build 20130514181517 update (at the same time as a Windows 7 update, I might add) and since then the default font sizes on all websites have been enlarged. I have a 17" monitor, but due to the grossly overscaled fonts it seems more like an old 14", and it's quite irritating. To view the websites in approximately the old way they used to look, I have to zoom out twice, but it also means I have to do it on all sites. I also have the habit of accidentally zooming in or out while using my laptop's touchpad, so whenever I ctrl-0 to reset the font, it goes back to the large font, and I need to rezoom it again.

I am primarily trying to figure out if there is a way to reset the font size without using any add-ons.

Thanks

Why, with Firefox 67.0 (64-bit), does Thunderbird 60.7.0 (32-bit) ignore the running Firefox instance and starts, instead, the default profile to handle links?

Hi, all.

On Windows 10 Pro (64-bit), I run Firefox (64-bit) and Thunderbird (32-bit), each with two profiles.

Until this afternoon, when Firefox updated to 67.0, clicking on a link in Thunderbird would open a new tab in the currently running instance of Firefox. If Firefox was not running, it would open "Profile 1."

Now, Thunderbird will only open links in my "Profile 1" Firefox. If I have "Profile 2" running, Thunderbird ignores it and starts a new instance of Firefox using "Profile 1." With both instances running, Thunderbird opens a new tab in the "Profile 1" instance.

I updated to Thunderbird 60.7.0 (32-bit), but it did not change the behaviour. So, this seems to be a Firefox change. Is there a way to go back to having the running Firefox instance handle the external launch of links?

This is the behaviour that I want: clicking on a link, anywhere, will open it in a new tab in the currently running Firefox profile, only opening the default profile if Firefox is not yet running.

Thanks in advance!
