MS Word Document Displayed Incorrectly in Firefox

I've posted the following in the MS Office Forum:

In the Word desktop app I used "-->", which Word autoconverts to a nice arrow. When viewing the document in the browser version of Word it gets mangled and shows up as a "à" symbol. Note: This happens on the same computer! My browser is Firefox (84.0.2). When using Edge or Chrome the arrows are displayed properly.

And got the following answer:

This appears to be a bug in Firefox. The two characters have the same Unicode value, 00E0, but the arrow is in the Wingdings font while the à is displayed in most non-symbol fonts. Although the font box on the ribbon in Word Online says the font of the character is Wingdings, Firefox fails to show it in that font.

Given that both Edge and Chrome seem to be able to display the document correctly, it seems to me that this is a Firefox bug?

Hello.

I noticed that when using the newest version of Firefox (84.0.2) I can go up to "logins and passwords" and all that's needed, even when not logged into the Firefox account in any way is to just click the "eye" icon and it shows the password.

How is this in any way considered secure? Anyone, at any time can just click this and see the passwords to all my web sites. I guess I will need to go back to using Edge where at least it asks me to use my PC login before it shows the passwords.

Firefox recently - now seeing ver. 84.0.02 in Jan 2021 - when trying to print a page in Firefox Browser is really poor and very difficult to use. What stupid programmer or Mozilla exec decided to take away the option to easily re-size (or "simplify pages") and then easily select pages which pages to print? Stupid decision - very stupid. Makes me decide to change from Firefox and go elsewhere for a browser!!! NOW I have to, when I print, go through an extra step of selecting ":Print using the system dialog..." to easily select double sided printing and select only desired pages. AND I STILL CANNOT RECONFIGURE THE ZOOM TO REDUCE AMOUNT OF PAPER USED!. Really, really a bad decision. Change back...or tell me how to get rid if this new Print Option Menu and go back or I just quit Firefox....quit Mozilla. (OK - I just went exploring and fond 'size adjustment' and 'print on two sides' under the options. Still pretty shitty and I am so pissed off by now, I am changing my primary/default browser and taking Firefox off my desktop, iPhone, iPad and laptop. So no reply is needed. Just pass this on to Mozilla and let them see what such unannounced changes does to their customer base. Stay safe...2021 is not looking any better than the last shitty year.

I am having trouble logging into my bank's website from Firefox. It's worked fine for several years and I have no clue what triggered it all of a sudden. Furthermore, I can log in just fine from various other browsers.

I have Google around on the issue for awhile now, and have troubleshooted several different things based on what I've Googled, such as clearing all site cookies, data, cache, etc. Also I had a pop-up blocker add-on but I removed it and that didn't do anything. Lastly, I tried completely uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it without ANY add-ons, but it still doesn't work.

Details on what happens: I go to the log in page, and I put in my user and password and click to log in, and it does nothing. It just basically refreshes the page, so the page comes back up with blank user and password fields.

Any help/ideas on the matter would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I am running Firefox Version 84.0.1 on Windows 10 1909.

Whenever I attempt to use a camera in Firefox, it defaults to one and does not allow you to select any others in the list. I have two other camera devices on this computer, but neither of them are ever listed.

I use OBS as a video mixer and then Voicemeeter as an audio mixer. Firefox has no trouble selecting between the 8 audio input devices on this computer, so I'm not sure why video would be any different.

I need Firefox to use OBS's virtual camera for school and work, but it always defaults to Epoccam now. It used to default to my NDI Virtual Input, which I was able to use (but with some issues) to get video out of OBS, it just added an extra hop.
