I had to do a computer reset on my laptop back to factory settings, everything ok now except one annoying issue I cannot seem to resolve. Some websites I was using perfectly ok in Firefox before now show as tiny text/font size and or generally looks wrong (in firefox) and nothing I do seems to resolve the issue, for example I'm viewing some websites at 130% but some text on the page is still too small. I can view the same sites in chrome with no issues at all at normal 100% level, The best example I could give I can't paste here for obvious reasons, my hargreaves lansdown pension values text is all squashed together so individual text that shows on one line on chrome (correctly) shows as condensed into 2 lines in firefox, the text is big but the values beside it are not for example, any increase in the zoom level doesnt really resolve this issue, yes the text gets bigger but I shouldnt have to read it at 150% zoom !!! but 100% is waaay too small, and the values size is not in sync withe the text beside it. I count myself as fairly savvy technically, I've tried all sorts including clearing cache and cookies and checking settings etc in firefox but this one has me stumped, some sites work ok but it looks like Firefox may be struggling to cope with some sort of display extension that some sites are using to display some parts of their page Any ideas please ? Thanks

Hi, normaly I used the @media (hover: none) and (pointer: coarse) to remove time animation on mobile, so that when we click, the hover state appears instantly. But recently I noticed this happens on Firefox "desktop". On other browsers the animation is still smooth. Is it something that is gonna come back as before or I should change my query, or find a workaround? Thanks.

First of all I don't know if i choose the correct topic.

My issue is that I like to help researchers by filling/doing their online quiz/forms/etc. They usually use this site for reflex test: https://pavlovia.org/ My problem is that you need to strike a key. Whenever I do that the f3 research box appears ... It's fun when you need to close it for a reflex test where seconds do matter. Is there a way to disable it ?

I have a recurring problem with Firefox warning me that a perfectly safe https site is http and temporarily barring access until I confirm that I want to risk proceeding to it. The latest site to get this treatment is https://bloctel.gouv.fr/, which is a French government website. This is extremely annoying. How can I fix it?

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.nextechclassifieds.com because this website requires a secure connection. www.nextechclassifieds.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site. www.nextechclassifieds.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.
Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT

This is a trusted website, been using it for years without issue. Used it a few hours ago to check my account. Only problem is on my pc, all other devices including people I've asked, do not have this issue. Seems to be a problem with the firefox browser only.

Hi. I Have a Dell Latitude E6430ATG and I am running Windows 10 and I loaded a 2016 version of MS Office and suddenly Firefox shows no pages -- everything is white except for the address bar and, when I try to open any web pages, tabs at the top of the page. Any web page (as supposedly indicated in the address bar) is completely blank -- just white space. The "Open Application Menu" button is there and I get the drop down menu, but the only things I can access are Bookmarks, History, More Tools and Help. Cannot access Passwords or Add-ons and themes. I did a Malwarebytes search and found no problems. I uninstalled everything (Firefox and Mozilla Maintenance Service), deleted both files/folders, and, using MS Edge (which does load all web pages), downloaded a new Firefox Installer and, supposedly, Firefox went through the installation process and said it was installed. I clicked on the con on my desktop and Firefox open with same result -- address bar and (once I type in or select a suggested web address) tabs at top, but no web pages load and Open Application Menu only gives me access to Bookmarks, History, More Tools and Help. I am stumped. Is there anything in Windows I need to disable/enable to get my example of Firefox to work? If you need more info to suggest solutions, just ask. I am no tech wizard, so please be patient. Thanks.

For some reason images are not loading in Outlook.com when I use Firefox. Images load fine when using Chrome or Edge, but Firefox is my preferred browser. Is anyone having a similar issue. I know there was recently an issue with the site itself but it seems MS resolved it but perhaps whatever they did only fixed the issue for chromium engines?

Firefox Version 93 64-bit

  • I have used troubleshoot mode and it works temporarily so I thought it was an extension and turned them all off but the issue persists. I reset Firefox but it did not correct the issue.
  • I have disabled the tracking protection and no change
  • I went in to Outlook.com settings and toggled the 'Use outlook services to load images' and no change.
  • Emails are marked as safe senders.

I think I hit all the major tips I have read online so I'm hoping I'm overlooking something. Any thoughts?

Starting as of today (Oct 13), the FACEBOOK screen suddenly moves when I am typing a comment. Whenever I hit SHIFT+alpha_letter at the beginning of a line OR simply hit the backspace key, the screen suddenly shifts about a page up, closer to top. This shifts the entry area where I'm typing down and off the screen. Just hitting the backspace to correct a typo causes the screen to scroll on its own. I have to scroll back down to the entry box and if I make another typo, it happens again. It is maddening!

I've restarted in troubleshoot mode and the same thing happens, so it is not an add-on. This is happening on both my Firefox Linux systems AND on a Windows 10 machine, so I don't think it is specifically OS related either. The screen however does stay put, like it is supposed to, using Chrome or Opera.

Is this a Firefox problem or is FACEBOOK messing with Firefox?

If you visit a website with malicious javascript in Firefox (ver. 93), is it possible for the site to access passwords stored in the browser, or typed or stored in Mozilla Thunderbird? (I would assume that would be considered a vulnerability and if it is possible it would be patched immediately, but I also figured that it is better to ask than to "assume.")
