My Firefox bookmarks that I have been using forever have mixed up all the URLs. My Google Calendar bookmark now points to Youtube. My Paypal bookmark now takes mt to Fantasy NHL. Every single god damned bookmark now points to the wrong website. I cant even fathom the amount of time it would take to go through and fix this! Why is your browser so bugged?

In privacy settings I have:

  "Accept thrid party cookies -> Always"
  "Keep until -> they expire"

I do have clear history when firefox closes, and I do not use password manager.

But cookies are never saved. I can look at my cookies in privacy section of options after logging in to several sites and see all of the cookies there, but when I close the browser and open it again, all the cookies are gone!

This works on my Win 7 Desktop but not on my new MS Surface Pro with Win 10 pro installed.

Running in safe mode did not fix anything, and firefox has no problem connecting to the internet. It just will not save cookies!!

After updating to FF46 I faced few unpleasant issues. Firstly after the update AVG detected threat in Program Files(x86)\Mozilla Firefox\Updated\firefox.exe (non-existing folder as FF starts in Program Files(x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe). Then my PC started maintenance which I couldn't stop with mouse moves as usual. CPU (System process) was on 95%. Restarting PC gave me 3 installing updates (I have all updates disabled!!!) and lastly Malwarebytes detected 3 Goobzo threats. I'm not sure if this is from same FF46 or from some of the add-ons. Hope someone could explain. I removed Goobzo virus with Malwarebytes but need to know what caused this infection.

I've been using codingforums(dot}com for years, without any issues, but suddenly yesterday evening when making a post, it started to hang, and ever since it times out when I try to access it.

I've asked others to try it and they say it loads for them without any problems. I tried it on my phone, and couldn;t access it that way either, which suggests my connection is at fault.

All other surfing and sites work fine, and it's only codingforums.

I'm using W7 and have done ping and tracert checks through command prompt, which both time out.

My PC has been shut down and restarted since then, but still getting the issue.

Any advice very welcome. Thanks in advance.

Hey, support side of Mozilla!

I have a weird problem. About a week ago, I noticed my theme wasn't loaded properly, so I went to the AddOns tab and, strangely, it's text, as though the style sheet forgot to load. I went to the Mozilla website to download a new theme, thinking this may fix the error.

And... It's all text, too. All Mozilla pages, exclusively, are text-only. All other websites function as normal. I returned to the AddOn panel and noticed that anything that may be "hosted" by a .mozilla website loaded as text. (However, not mozilla.com websites, just (something).mozilla.com websites.)

I have combed through the troubleshooting options (using Chrome, that's what I'm posting from now) and have tried everything. Cookies/history/whathaveyou cleared out. Firefox uninstalled and reinstalled seven times now. A few times I entirely deleted the Firefox folders as instructed. I even tried Nightly to see if it was just a weird bug with the current build of Firefox. Then, conversely, I tried an old build of Firefox.

All do the same thing. Sure, it works *okay*, but if I need anything from Mozilla, I'm out of luck.

Here's the Imgur folder since the Uploader here apparently doesn't work: http://imgur.com/gallery/kb6Us

On my Windows XP machine, with FF 45.0.2 and the latest version of the Flash Player plug-in, none of the Web sites that require Flash will play. A few weeks ago I had no problem, but there have been several FF and Flash updates since then. Flash Settings Mgr (via Control Panel) says that I have downloaded the latest NPAPI Plug-in version of Flash. However, Flash doesn't appear in my FF Plug-in List. I thought maybe FF was corrupted so I uninstalled and downloaded a new copy, but that didn't make a difference. [NOTE: I *think* I uninstalled FF--I did it from the "remove programs" tool, and then used another browser to download a new copy. But when the new copy was installed, it instantly looked the same--had my FF Sync running, had my previous add-ons running, etc. So maybe I need to clear something else??] I also tried to add Flash using the Add-ons feature within FF, but it still doesn't show up in my list of plug-ins. And every Web site that requires Flash says I am missing Flash Player. NOTE: If this question looks familiar, I posted a similar one awhile back. But a solution was not forthcoming, so I'm trying again :)

Hi

I've suddenly noticed that my fonts in FireFox are very blocky (no antialias). I'm sure this happened after a restart but not sure why.

I've checked the zoom factor of the page and I can confirm that this is at 100% / Reset

When I went to check my version it updated so this problem exists across 4.6 and 4.5.? (didn't catch the last number before it updated).

I've check windows (all fonts are fine)

I've check another browser (Chrome at the same page.. this is fine).

I'm posting this question/request for help as other posts I've found related do not quite match my issue.

Please find attached a screen shot of the issue (FireFox is to the left and Chrome to the right)

(Upload seems to be caught up, I'll reply to this msg if it doesn't show)

Many thanks J

Just installed FF46 on a Kubuntu system this morning. All my context/popup/hover menus have changed to Black text (on original dark background).

How can I change text color to White as it was up to FF46??

I have tried to take a snapshot but it is impossible since I need the mouse to select and the hover menus dissapear as soon as I move the mouse. Catch 22. (edit: found a way to get screenshot)

I'm having a problem with the interface fonts on Firefox 46.0 on Linux (in this case, Kubuntu 16.04). They are far too small for my 24" 1920x1200 monitor.

Before I upgraded to version 46 I was using the Theme Font & Size Changer add-on by Baris Derin. Unfortunately, the latest release (45.4) no longer supports Linux (why, I don't know, but this is a problem). I attempted to install an older version of the add-on (43.4) but this doesn't seem to work. I can't find it anywhere in Firefox other than in my Add-ons Manager. I can't load up the configuration for it through the manager.

So, now I am stuck with tiny fonts, and it's hard to read.

I have read some references to setting the fonts in the userChrome.css file, but I can't seem to find a chrome folder on my machine. Does Firefox support this, still?

This has to be a common problem, and I hope there is a solution -- but I can't find one that works.
