If I want to attach an image to a document or such using Firefox, a window opens allowing me to select the image or document but these use a nearly microscopic thumbnail that's impossible to see. To ensure I'm picking the right image, I have to open a file manager window simultaneously (which has icons/thumbnails large enough to be useable) and then find the filename of the image I want. Only by matching the filenames will I know I've got the right image. It's very cumbersome and I would love to know how to force Firefox to use the system defaults for icon sizes and thumbnails. I'm on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04LTS) using Firefox 79.0 64-bit.

Thank you for any help.

Hello,

On my main computer (XUbuntu 20.04, Firefox 79.0), Firefox Lockwise "Identifiers and passwords" page is showing I'm storing 1244 passwords. On my second computer (XUbuntu 20.04, Firefox 78.0.2), synced and linked to the same account (I have only one Firefox account), the same page is showing only 94 passwords).

On both hosts, Lockwise is showing that everything is synced. Forcing synchronisation is working fine.

Is there some way to debug this mystery, or hints you could give?

Thank you.

I am trying to copy selected text from a web article. If I select the text from the screen and paste into a word processor the text is truncated. If I view in Print Friendly the text is rearranged to prevent this but I now cannot select the text I require because the cursor is replaced with a large Dustbin and only allows deletion of text. How do I get rid of this dustbin and resume normal editing?

Firefox 79.0 Incidentally, the usual Firefox tab to rearrange text for reading is not available for this particular article/website.

Firefox handling of selected text in fields is entirely broken

There appears to be something completely broken in the latest Firefox UI for me. Its making me want to throw my laptop out the window.

When I have text selected in fields such as the address bar, or fields, sometimes rather than 'overwriting' the selection, it appends it. Or sometimes when I select all the text in a field and paste, I end up with the original selection appended by the pasted text, or vice-versa. It makes interacting with websites via the keyboard absolutely pointless in this browser.

Main affected site for me has been the amazon web services console, which is my main use-case for Firefox due to containers, however apparently Chrome now has a parallel function for that, so I'll spend the rest of the night looking that one up, since Chrome is not exhibiting this issue.

After a recent update to Thunderbird (on Windows 10) it has started rendering messages incorrectly. It seems to override HTML settings in emails and defaults everything to a standard colour scheme. This is especially noticeable when testing MailChimp emails and receiving styled email newsletters from other companies. For example, I created a MailChimp campaign with a dark background and light text with highlights and buttons in a different colour. This is now all being stripped and placed onto a white background with black text. Some elements like social shares (which were white) are now completely hidden too. I am also seeing issues with the way my email signature is displaying, as it had specific colours attributed to certain HTML (email friendly) elements. This was NOT an issue before the recent updates, so is there a way to simply view emails as they are intended (for both reading and composing)?

Hi,

this is a weird issue with "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0": The contents of Dokuwiki codeblocks disappears when clicking in the block, not only on self-created pages, but also here: https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:code2

The problem exists only with code blocks in the lower half of larger Dokuwiki pages, therefor might be a memory/cache issue.

Reproducible as follows: - on different machines with FF 68 - 78. - in Safe Mode - with a new empty FF profile

Cannot be reproduced with other browsers (Chrome).

I am quite cueless so far. Any help appreciated.

Inbox panel line "Inbox" shows that there is a new message received e.g. "(1)". However, that new message will not appear in the Inbox list of messages received (Subject, Correspondents etc.) unless I select a different box first e.g. "Drafts" and then re-select the "Inbox" box again. Is this a fault or by design for a reason beyond my ken?

This issue has been there for some time and well beyond irksome.

Hello,

I sync my desktop Firefox with the Android app. Many of the desktop bookmarks have keywords defined (like [[this|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/bookmarks-firefox#w_how-to-use-keywords-with-bookmarks]]). I've used them for years for rapid access to frequently used pages. Until the recent update to v.79 on Android, the keywords also worked on the phone, but not anymore.

Is there a setting that I need to enable to make bookmark keywords work in Firefox for Android v.79+?

Thanks.
