I can't attach any files in my outlook web app using Firefox. However, using Microsoft's Edge, there's no problem. I prefer Firefox but this is really hindering my work. I restarted Firefox, removed all plug ins, but no success with that.

Hello.

I believe one of the recent updates is causing the "Remember Logins for Sites" to be disabled every time I restart my computer. I'll test if it's also when I restart FF, (I restated FF on my laptop and RLFS was left on) . I noticed it because passwords were not being populated automatically (like usual). I found this option off, and turning it back on, allowed the pw fields to be auto populated again. However, after every restart, "Remember Logins for Sites" is off again. It is also happening on my wife's laptop.

Thank you team FF.

I would like to shorten the address bar so that more of the theme background picture is visible. I only use a small amount of toolbar icons and no search bar so the address bar extends almost the entire length of the window and blocks a fair bit of the theme pic. I read that it can be set to a particular size by coding for it in userchrome.css can you please show me exactly what I need to enter into the text document to make this happen? This is what I have seen on other posts and have tried to use:

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);

  1. urlbar-container {max-width:200px!important}

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

After upgrading to FF 45.0 fonts on some web pages (notably the Adobe forums) look thin and scraggly and kerning seems to be messed up when I have "Allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of my selections above" checked. The problem also exists in FF 45.1. This has, in fact, become a topic on the Adobe Forum Comments forum ( https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2112505 ). I looked at this question ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1111253#answer-847637 ) but the solution offered there doesn't apply since I already have the platform upgrade installed. Windows 7 Pro SP1.

Since the last week of March 2016, weather.com stopped working. All I get is a single window with most of the banner blacked out. Selecting from the drop downs bring mostly empty screens or, in the case of Today's forecast, Page not found. I updated to El Capitan hoping that would solve the issue. No luck. I'm at Firefox 45.0.1 which says it's up to date. What happened?

After upgrading to Firefox 45.0 a document from the web (newspaper article in this case) is no longer copied intact into a new message in Thuiderbird. Text formatting of headings & subheadings are lost, links are lost and no images are copied. This has not occurred in any prior version of Firefox.

I copied the same article from the web into a word document and all formatting as well as images were copied intact -- using the Word paste option of "Keep Source Formatting".

I accessed the document in Internet Explorer and copied it into Thunderbird with all formatting and images intact.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Is this a bug in 45.0 or how can I resolve this issue?

Dear Sirs,

I hope I have the right department area, but if not if you can direct me to the correct one. I was trying to call someone on Google Voice and I got a message that I needed to install the Hangout Pluggin. I did and tried to call someone but the window still keeps popping up. I contacted Google Voice help and they said that I would need to contact Mozilla because it probably was disabled and would need to enable it again. Also not sure if this is the reason why I am having this problem, but I just updated Mozilla Firefox. How do I enable this? Thanks

I recently posted to "After compacting folders Inbox is completely empty" about a similar problem with another folder I use for archiving emails. After hitting "Compact" in the right-click on that folder, all the emails just vanished. Poof! Luckily, I had read the aforementioned post and did a backup of Local Folders should the problem re-occur. It has...and it hasn't.

After a few test runs, this occurrence is intermittent. I find no reason for the inconsistency. I have taken it on faith that before I compact ANY folder I will need to make a recovery backup. Until I can ascertain why this is going on, such would be my advice before any individual or bulk compacting gets done.

Hello there

I do have a problem with some of the the fonts' rendering without antialiasing, as I think, and that makes them pretty ugly. The problem appears to be only with Firefox; the same fonts on Chrome, Internet Explorer, Brave browser or even Pale Moon does not exist. When it comes to Pale Moon, it required some setting to be changed in about:config but eventually, everything rendered neatly.

As far as Firefox in concerned, I have tried to use numerous different solutions but none seemed to work. I'll try to list the tutorials that I have tried. My system is Windows 7 x64 Home Premium, Firefox is the latest version from the stable releases, 45.0.1 right now, I think. Laptop is Acer Aspire 5749Z with Intel Pentium B960 and Intel GMA 2000 graphics. I do have the latest drivers for the graphics card installed. Windows' ClearType is on. Hardware Acceleration is currently on, tried turning if off, nothing helped.

Here is an exaple of a badly rendered font: https://i.imgur.com/70uGPQm.png ("Grids") and here is the link to the page: http://purecss.io/grids/

I have tried the following: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/3gtnnq/font_rendering_issues_ff40/ http://www.askvg.com/how-to-disable-hardware-acceleration-gpu-rendering-in-mozilla-firefox-4-0-to-fix-font-problem/ https://support.mozilla.org/pl/questions/1111253 — I have the Windows Updates mentioned here installed. Rest of the tutorials concerned pretty much the same things, i.e. turning the Direct2D on or off.

My thanks and regards Greg

While in private browsing mode in Mac OS ver 45, I can log into Office365, but when I log out and back in I get the message

" Sorry, but we're having trouble signing you in

Please try again in a few minutes. If this doesn't work, you might want to contact your admin and report the following error: 800478A1."

This occurred before on a previous version of Firefox. If Firefox is not holding any information (private browsing) why can I not log back in?

Anyone have any ideas on whats happened here? Why wont the extra name delete from the Profiles window.
