Whenever I try to delete my Firefox Account, it says that my password is incorrect. I've changed my password, copy-pasted it from the password change page and it still says my password is incorrect. How can I fix this? The password works fine for other Firefox things, just not the account deletion page.

Firefox 89 introduced super-extra-duper fatty bold fonts. Fatter than the Futura bold fonts. I want to get rid of this uglyfaced font that is hardly readable on non-retina screens.

Tried to lower the level of [ layout.css.font-visibility.level ] from default 3 to 1 ... doesn't do anything.

Do the Mozillians really believe that every FF user has a Retina type screen before their eyes ? With the 20/20 vision of Superman ? What were the devs thinking ???

Hi I recently started using 2FA on my account. Unfortunately i have forgotten the back up password so can't access my encrypted accounts.. I contacted Authy and they said; " the best approach is to contact each service you have a 2FA token for in Authy and ask them to disable 2FA on your account so that you may regain access. This is needed because Authy doesn't store your passwords on our servers as a security measure to protect your accounts. " So how do i disable in Firefox? I don't see an option in settings. Thank you

I'm not sure if this problem arose with the latest Firefox upgrade (I'm running MacOS 10.14.6 on an older MacbookPro) or has just appeared after a few days of use -- I think it's the latter. But I can no longer rearrange the sequence of tabs in a window, an absolutely essential feature. There's a contextual menu choice that gives me the option of moving a tab to the beginning, end or a new window, but that only helps in ~10% of situations. What gives??

A link to my previous thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1339912

Recap: I was having what I believe were some kind of syncing issues, where none of my passwords would autofill, and I couldn't save new login information, and was getting logged out of websites that I would normally be perma-logged in to. At the same time, I have also been having connectivity issues where FF loses connection to my internet for around 5 minutes. Sometimes it would fix itself and other times I'd have to restart FF. Meanwhile, Chrome would run fine in the background so I know it's not my actual wifi but it's specific to FF.

I have tried the FF "refresh" and when that didn't fix it, I tried a full uninstall/reinstall which fixed my syncing/password autofill issues but not my connectivity issues.

Any other ideas? I'm super bummed about this because I've used FF for many years and been so happy with it and have convinced so many friends to jump ship from Chrome over to FF. But I don't have time to keep troubleshooting this and it's looking more and more like I'll have to switch over to Chrome if I want to have a normal workday without frustrations and interruptions.

Don't know where to write it, but I hope some developers of Firefox will read it...

After years of UI / UX Design studies Firefox recently "updated" the bookmarks menu ignoring everything ever established in UI / UX design rules!

1. When you right click on a bookmark you suddenly find the bookmark options split into two segments? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. Why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"? Such things cause all this annoying obstacles which no one needs when working with a program. Who ever thought this might be a great intervention should take the step back.

Same with folders. 1. When you right click on a bookmark folder you suddenly find the bookmark folder options split into two segments, too? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. And again, why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"?

An issue I am running into with the latest Firefox is that when connected to an external display (4K) the screen starts flickering really bad when scrolling in Firefox for MacOS.

Safari does not, other programs do not, only Firefox!

Anyone having similar issues or knowing a solution? It is really annoying! Thanks in advance!

Hi Folks, I am running firefox on my macpro 3,3GHz 12- Core Intel Xenon W Graphics AMD Radeo Pro 580x 8 GB, I am using an apple XDR display.

Every so often I experience a white flash, just within the Firefox window, not across the entire monitor.

I have tried a completely new and full install of Firefox but same problem.

I wonder is anyone had any thoughts or ideas  ?

Lately (as of which version, I'm not sure), I've been noticing that if I enter a URL in the address bar of a tab that already has a page open, instead of going to the new URL I entered, Firefox will refresh the current page instead. This happens A LOT and is pretty annoying. Wondering if this happens to anyone else.

Hello, After a Firefox browser Mac OS update (89.0) the "send to device" doesn't work anymore. It is not really that it does not work, the function is no longer available through the three points that were located in the toolbar. The three dots have disappeared from the browser.

On the contrary, in my Android Firefox (89.1.1 Build # 2015812947) the three points are still in place, and therefore I can access "Send to Device". The function was working yesterday. I was sending few Tabs from my Android to my Mac. But not today, the dots are there, the "Send to Device also, but is not working.

Also from Android to my PC is working, I can receive Tabs from my Firefox installed in my Android. I can't find the version. From PC well, the three dots also have disappeared from the browser.

Any help appreciate, thatks

Hello,

I was wondering if there is any way to increase the font size of the tabs and the bookmarks bar in Firefox. I'm using macOS Catalina, and the text appears tiny, making it very difficult to read.

I have found the following suggested fixes, but neither provides a satisfactory solution:

Theme Font & Size Changer: appears to have lost most of its functionality in the newer versions of Firefox.

'Changing the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx value in about:config: this does indeed scale the size of the tab and bookmarks text, however, I'm using two screens, and the scaling does not match between the two. When the font appears big enough on my attached screen, weirdly the font on my laptop screen becomes even smaller than at the default -1 value. And if I increased it to the right size on my laptop screen, it become ginormous on my attached screen (see attached screen shots).

Any solution to save my poor eyes from straining would be appreciated,

Best wishes,

Veronika
