For an unknown reason, Firefox Browser doesn't render portions of text on some pages, leaving invisible areas. I'm using the latest version (95.0.2) on Windows 10, but this was a problem in other recent versions. It only happens on some systems. No other browser I've tried has the same problem, so the issue is definitely Firefox-specific.

One example of a problematic page is arxiv.org, another one is Caltech News; see the attached screenshots for how Firefox renders these pages on my system.

Here's what I found out.

  1. The issue goes away if I disable the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" font setting.
  2. The issue remains even if I disable/uninstall all add-ons.
  3. Refresh-install doesn't resolve the issue.
  4. After uninstalling and installing Firefox cleanly again, with old settings auto-imported (bookmarks, history, logins ...) and no add-ons present, the issue is not present at first. However, if I enable "Open previous windows and tabs" option to restore my session on startup, the issue reappears after I close and re-open Firefox a couple of times, and doesn't go away after that. It doesn't matter whether the problematic pages are included in the restored session or not; they will simply not show all text as expected if I visit them.
  5. Deleting the entire cache, cookies, site data and site settings doesn't help.
  6. Opening Firefox in Troubleshoot mode make the problem disappear, but it returns immediately when I leave the Troubleshoot mode.

Any ideas how to fix this?

I downloaded several files and I can see them when I click on the little arrow, but when I look for them in my computer downloaded file , they aren't there. I go back up to the little arrow and it shows the file was downloaded, but it's not in my computer . So when I went back up to the little arrow and right clicked on it to open --it worked, the file opened, but it never showed up on my computer. The next day I tried to find the file in my computer but no success. I went to Firefox drop down and under downloads the file showed up, but I couldn't do anything with it. So now I can't find it on my computer and it doesn't work when I use it from Firefox's drop down selection. I have downloaded several other files with no problem. Here is the file. https://www.benefits.va.gov/HOMELOANS/documents/docs/VA_Buyers_Guide.pdf HELP Ron

Hello,

I have the site espn.com bookmarked and for the last month or so it has been opening it's various foreign sites instead of the united states version when I click on the bookmark tab. It will switch to the UK and Mexico sites randomly when I click on the tab. The address is saved as the US version (espn.com) when this happens so I can't figure out why it's doing it. It doesn't matter if I use a vpn that says I'm in the US or just my regular internet provider in the US, the site keeps changing what country it chooses to open with. I noticed that every time I click the tab it will cycle between the various different sites for each country even though as I said before, the bookmark is set for espn.com. It makes no sense as none of my other bookmarks do this and it doesn't do it when I use Safari's browser. Is there anything on my end I can do to get this to stop or is it coming from espn.com's end? Thank you for your time and help. :)

Recently I started getting an error saying SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE while trying to open a website. That particular site can only be accessed through my demat account so replicating my situation is not possible. Other browsers like Chrome, Edge are able to open it but Firefox cant, it does only when OCSP is disabled. I reinstalled the browser but the problem remains. Pls tell me how to add that website to exception if its possible or delete all the certificates currently loaded on Firefox or a full reset of the browser removing all previous data. And is it okay if I keep OCSP off all the time?

Hey everyone,

I recently had to do a PC reset and thus lost all my files, settings and programs FF included. Upon reinstalling I don't have the option to save, view or sync credit card info. The whole section is missing from my settings.

I have already gone to about:config and enabled both of the autofill settings to true (as suggested in other Q&As) and restarted multiple times with no luck.

Any ideas why I would be missing this option?

I recently received a request from AVG to have an add-on - AVG Online Security - which will protect against phishing and malware sites. There was a note from Firefox that Firefox does not monitor this add-on.

I use AVG Virus Protection - free copy - and it seems to be doing its job; although, I have been thinking about buying the software.

Has anyone used this add-on? Is it all right to install? Is it necessary to install? Since I changed internet service providers, I have not seen much in the way of phishing and AVG Virus Protection prevented me from accessing two websites it said were questionable.

When I go to retrieve the authorization code and have to leavethe sign in page of ths site I'm logging into, the page won't reload or just stay loaded. So I can't finish signing in to anything unless I can get the notification to appear on top or in my status bar. Thank you for taking a look at my message.

I would love to help if you have suggestions of things I should do or learn. 

I am not as much of a jerk as I have appeared to be in the past. This whole disaster just caused some severe stress and I have had significant brain trauma in my past that causes really bad reactions when I am stressed out. I apologize for offending anyone. I hope we can be good colleagues one day. Thank you for all your hard work.

When I sign in to my Google account on my PC it sends a link to my phone for me to click "Yes it's me" to authenticate the sign in. The Google sign-in screen on my PC (Firefox browser) has a checkbox to 'trust' this device. Even though I select that option it still insists on sending the phone link to click on. How do I get Firefox/Google to remember the 'trust' checkbox state?

PS. I don't like cookies or browsing history to be saved, but do allow certain exceptions.

Good morning. When I go to the Medicare.gov site and log in, there is a search box to search for things. It asks for zip code and provides a drop down menu to select from. After I do this and initiate a search it just shows a spinning wheel and does not provide the results.

No problem with my internet connection or speed and I turned off enhanced protection and I am allowing pop ups for the site.

I did this on my Samsung phone and it worked fine.

Thanks for any help.

I use Firefox locally to review the HTML/CSS while creating web pages (Win7 & Win10). Upon browser update, Firefox stopped displaying mask of any image format (SVG or PNG).

I did solve this issue in 2020 by changing the settings. about:config > privacy.file_unique_origin changing: to 'false' > refresh tab. Yet, since October 2021, it's no longer helping. After a browser update, I don't see the images with a mask, see attachment. The mask images show OK when the HTML page is on the server, but codding requires a constant 'quick check,' and usually uploading to the server is a final step. Can anyone help?

I prepared a simple example page [https://artenergy.com/mask] with a download link. Thus one can open this file locally to see the issue.

Thank you!
