I am working on a website that uses Unicode extensively. Some glyphs do not show correctly. In particular U+2A75, which is double equals. I am using Ubuntu, and I have installed Unifont. In the image, I have opened Firefox on the right and Chromium on the left, the URL is https://www.compart.com/en/unicode/U+2A75 Chromium is displaying the page correctly, Firefox is not. However, in both cases, the character is correctly displayed in the text in the Tab header after the favicon. browser.display.use_document_fonts is set to 1 I have read the Support page on editing fonts. Inspecting the element as suggested in the 'Editing Fonts' page, (see 2nd image uploaded), I see - in the source pane on the left, the character is correctly displayed (as in the tab text) - the Font being used to display the character in the rendered HTML is 'Source Sans Pro', which probably does not have the glyph for U+2A75. - the Font supplied by the website (presumably it does have the glyph) is list as a font, but I can't find a way to have it display the element.

I have tried to change the font family for the selected element in the Rules pane, but that does not work.

I have tried a variety of other changes in about:config but nothing seems to work.

I have two thoughts - the Font family for some Unicode ranges may be set for security reasons, and so U+2A75 is forced to some other Font - the fallback mechanism is not working to select a font when the glyph is not in the first family.

How most of the the "serious" articles of those recommended come from moderately left to very left sources. The well-intentioned but hopelessly misguided (and often destructive) selections from the NYT, Atlantic, Vox, New Yorker, etc. are of little little interest or use to me. Please consider articles and opinion pieces from the WSJ. American Spectator, NR, etc. as well. You might just increase revenue and profit. Thanks! Ted Alpert

On a legacy iMac with over ten years of Firefox usage, I suddenly cannot sign in. The mac caps out at High Sierra 10.13.6 and I am unable to activate sync. I have tried allowing all cookies, restarting the browser several times, and even explored the config files.... to no avail.

How do I "enable local storage"? that's the error that sync provides me, but there is no option to fix that and all of your help files point me to cookies information (which I have done everything with). There are no actual help files to fix the local storage problem. This is frustrating!

Do I have to uninstall the entire application? If so, how to I preserve my bookmarks and pws without also porting over whatever is broken in the application?

Until the most recent update, which came along with a Microsoft update, I was able to stream Peacock.com but now I'm getting an error message that my system configuration isn't compatible with Peacock. I have also had issues with YouTube, which keeps telling me that I have to disable adblockers - which I'm not running. I had another unrelated problem that I fixed by doing a system restore to before the Microsoft update, so there should be no issues with that end of things. It has to be Firefox because I can still stream Peacock on Microsoft Edge.

So, does ANYONE have any idea how I can fix this problem? I much prefer using Firefox to Edge and I don't use Chrome.

Thanks.

Ok. The update downloaded 2 1/2 days ago. I've used Firefox since that download. It didn't install until now. 2 1/2 days later. Why the long delay? And why don't you have something show up in the banner or toolbar that designates that an upload to Firefox is happening? Now, we all have to guess why Firefox is behaving slow and erratic, close and re-open, and check for version.

I accidentally used wrong disk when downloading a big file. So my primary disk, where I'm running OS became 100% full. Then I removed this big file, checked that disk is not full anymore, and tried to download again, this time choosing the right disk, but now the Firefox internal file browser, where we open files, and select folder to download is broken, pointing wrong location when selecting disk/folders. I tried restarting OS, reinstalling firefox, but it's internal file browser is still broken. In Chrome it's ok, in system file explorer is ok, problem occur only with Firefox. I'm using Pop!_OS 22.04.

Is there a way I can reset this internal file browser to work properly again?

I'm using 121.0 for Manjaro

Today, I had a problem trying to re-load a website I had saved just the other day. I have a bunch of such websites for a technical project I am working on.

I tried loading the other saved web-sites. All had been saved as a complete file and by this browser. I have no other browser installed.

The problem was that the saved web-page kept re-loading. No forum-discussion could be found so the trouble-shooting option was entered into.

I opened Firefox in safe-mode (via the command-line call). Running a suggestion; clearing cache didn't resolve the problem (in safe-mode the saved web-page still kept re-loading with a rapid cycle)

The next "suggestion" I tried was refresh Firefox. Firefox advised that none of my saved data and settings would be lost. Well, my entire profile is gone!!! Thankfully synchronizing worked such that I could recover passwords, history etc. What are NOT recovered are the settings for websites, probably other infos too.

I have two login-accounts on my system and I have a shared, common profile for both. This was using a public folder with access rights only for those two users.

I have been using that profile architecture for months. This is now gone!! Those folders do not exist anymore. In its place are entirely new folders, their formats completely unfamiliar to me. I am recalling my latest backup but will it be of any use???

Many thanks, indeed.

I have changed the password for my account and logged in. Tried to logout and login again but just 9 passwords is found, extremely frustrating!

Anyone got a clue what has happened?

How to block the full screen function permanently at the same time that all menus are hidden, invisible, when you press the full screen button so that the video one gives a larger image without giving full screen. I have previously found a firefox program that could do that, but unfortunately I got it deleted.

Want to use the solution on a Win 10 PC, desktop PC and a screen of 1.5 m, i.e. 2 screens in one.

Just now occurred. Firefox closed shortly after opening Chrome. No crash notification. Then, Chrome froze, with one of those "Close program or wait" messages.
