Any window associated with Paypal loads but the page is tiny. I have to zoom in order to read the page, login, etc. There is no problem with actually logging in.

I opened FFOX in safe mode with the same result. Also cleared the startup cache.

Running 2016 MBP with Big Sur 11.5.1. Neither Safari nor Chrome have this issue.

Any help is appreciated!

This morning on my laptop, FF refused to open any websites - literally nothing happened when using bookmarks or the address bar. Settings" doesn't open either. FF worked fine yesterday and other browsers work normally.

I tried it in troubleshoot mode which made no difference and then updated to 9.3.0, which didn't help either. I made a Macrium system backup file and then I did a Macrium system restore to a fortnight ago when FF was working, but the problem was still there.

So i 'restored back' and reluctantly did a reset of firefox. Now i seem to have lost all my bookmarks and passwords (although i can't properly check as settings still won't open) and FF still doesn't work, with exactly the same symptoms.

And I have a folder called Old Firefox Data on my desktop

I am completely stuck, please help!

Someone in Bugzilla instructed me to use Troubleshoot Mode for a separate problem, so I did. After reverting back to normal mode, I find that my addons are gone. Then I checked about:profiles. I find that one profile (default-release) has my tabs in normal colors (gray) and no addons, while another profile (default) has my addons, but the tabs are strangely white, which I don't want. How do I get the addons to appear while having normal tab color (gray)?

My problem,using Mint20.2-MATE, with FireFox92, is that FF92 shuts down whenever I minimize FF-i.e., totally down-does NOT appear in taskbar. I know I had the same problem years ago, and it was a simple fix. However, going through the "Help" sections in FF this time was no help. thank you for any suggestions.

HI!

My buddy highlighted an issue, then i re-checked myself and it is worrying to me.

To recreate (windows):

Get any (non-webistaller [not nececarry, to do it this way, but simpler to check]) firefox version (buddy got a fresh portable, i used my kinda privacy fortified one). Disconnect from the internet (plug the cable for fastest result). Make your version usable (install it) Start firefox, and open the Resource Monitor, with the network tab open expand the Network Activity portion (short alphabeticly, by name, check for F for firefox). Plug the cable in.

You soon will see FF will start looking for things, then an adress with a googleusercontet.com will pop up. Does not matter what is the Homepage's default browser, does no matters even if the Homepage is set to blank, this happens.

My best bet would be google safe browsing, but still, without any activity it is already connecting to that?

I know about the Google-FF/Mozilla relation, but this really made me think about why i still like firefox.

The mouse-left click button does not work "with 1 site only", but works with other sites.

- I have followed the recommended steps shown in answers/replies to a similar question. However, none works at all.

  1. 1- cleared cache & cookies
  2. 2- tried safe mode and disabled/removed some add-ons manually as well
  3. 3- tried different themes and default theme
  • Please note that the same issue happens in Firefox on Android phone

I have been having this issue for 5 weeks already. as a temporary solution I am using the middle mouse click or right-click to open links in a new tab, then close the current tab

    • Please also note, that specific website works fine in other browsers (6 browsers tested)
      • the issue DOES NOT exist in Firefox on Linux

When I scan a barcode using Firefox, characters are added/rearranged. This causes errors for our company's customers and inaccurate data entry. Scanning the attached barcode produced the following results in Firefox:

I have checked for updates, cleared my cache, and rebooted my browser. I've also tried disabling active extensions.

I've recently updated to 92.0.1 and I've noticed that when I download a PDF attachment or file that firefox opens in a new tab rather than using the default adobe program. I've looked at settings and applications and changed to to "always ask" but I don t get any option to use adobe to open it or any other program. Also it seems to save the file in the downloads folder as a "firefox html document" and not a pdf file
