This problem is not from my system or operating system as I recently renewed my Windows 10. This problem was also present before that and it still persists now. I can change the video playback speed in other browsers but Firefox doesn't do it.

I work with HTML website themes daily. I use the firefox browser for all of my design work and I have recently noticed that firefox does not show web icons such as font awesome or any other web icons. The web icons are properly coded into the theme and they show up fine in all other browsers (chrome, edge, explorer, safari).

I did some research on it and I did find this: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS but I don't know if that has anything at all to do with it or not.

If the problem is due to Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) then how would I fix that issue as the fonts are being served directly from the theme files?

Thank you

Hi! I'm using Firefox on my Mac. Last update. My problem is simple: when I close Firefox, it doesn't remember the last size of the window. So, for example, I normally use it on the full dimension of the screen (but not in full size: I'll post a picture to explain, because I'm not good with words hahah). Instead, when I relaunch it, it opens like in small size (I'll post a picture of that, too). Is there something that I can do? Thx.

I have several add-ons installed and I want to be able to start them up (of course). In the toolbar I added the add-ons icon, but when i click that it only gives me a list of installed add-ons. For instance it says that Enpass add-on is installed, but I can't see the add-on itself in teh toolbar and therefore can't start it up. I have tried everything i can think of, but nothing works. Please help!

All downloads fail instantly even after uninstalling, deleting, and purging data on my computer. I've gone through safe mode, disabeling any and all programs related to antivirus and connection (PIA and Malwarebytes) and not a single file will even start to dowload. They fail and end up as corrupted clutter in my Download folder.

PS: The only way I was able to reinstall was via Chrome. Its only a problem on Firefox.

Hello, I am inquiring how to setup text replacements in FireFox i.e. TY = Thank You It is the same exact tool on Mac OS Mojave in Preferences - Keyboard - Text I would like to setup some per-defined rules that automatically change my text as I type. For instance, when typing "TY" in Firefox, when I hit the space bar, I would like it to promptly change the "TY" to "Thank you" (without quotes).

This would help a lot with my productivity at work. I am not sure if there is a way to enable my text replacement shortcuts setup on my Mac to work in Firefox, or if there is some sort of Add-On that would achieve this.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated!

How to turn off *distracting* display of trackers blocked in bottom right of web pages for Firefox 69?

I appreciate that Firefox is now blocking third party trackers. But I can't stand having a distracting purple display of trackers blocked in every web page. That is unacceptable to me and I want a way to turn off that distracting display on *every* web page.

I find it ironic that distracting ads are being removed (good!) but Firefox developers thought it was a smart idea to *add* its own distracting information on web pages (sheesh -- at least could we have the option to put that tracker summary in the menu bar? -- I would ideally prefer being able to abolish it from even being seen there).

I am a software developer who doesn't care for web page pollution or distraction from the real content, and a tracker blocking summary in my face on every page is definitely pollution.

I'm going back to Chrome because of this one issue (the ad blocker I use only puts its summary count in the menu bar).

Firefox really goofed by adding its own "ad" on *every* web page for its new feature. Now I need a blocker for those ads!

HI- Recently lots of my fonts have started displaying as question marks on certain sites (such as the autofill on Google). If I uncheck the box in prefs that allows websites to use their own fonts, it's fine. But then the sites look nasty. I've reinstalled Firefox 69.0.2 but its no better. It's a work Apple mac so I can't access all the settings but the issue is only on Firefox. Please don't make me use Chrome! Thanks

Seems to have completely started on its own. I fixed the same issue last week with a proper uninstall and reinstall of Firefox, but this week the same issue has returned. Going back and forth between tabs is also quite slow. I am still running Windows 7 professional 64-bit. I currently run Firefox Quantum 69.0 (64-bit). The same is on my other Windows 7 and Windows 10 PCs and I do not have the same issue. IE and Google chrome on this PC also do not experience the same issue. I cannot pin this to any Windows update(s) or other software installation(s) or updates. How can I fix this and continue to have all the same tabs open up on my home startup without getting this frustrating delay as well as not getting the delays when going from tab to tab?

I have Windows 10 v1903 and am using Firefox 69.0.2 (64 bit)

I am told that, in order to sync Firefox with other devices, I need to "Click the Firefox Account icon in the toolbar". However, there is no such icon in the toolbar and, when I click on "Customise", there is no such icon there either.

How to I get this icon? If not available, how else do I sync with Firefox on my iPad?

Firefox won't load my website on my computer, laptop or phone. It just churns on a blank page. Tech support at my web host says no problem there, and they can get Firefox to load it. On my desktop, I have tried the suggestions from Firefox: delete history, malware scan, disable add-ons, turn off antivirus, set to no proxy - no change. I also have problems with various specific web page buttons not working in Firefox that work in other browsers (to like a post in a forum, to select a pull-down list of numbers). My web page did come up without problem until this week. ??? I didn't change anything myself, but updates do happen. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'd like to stay with Firefox, but it's becoming hard to do this if I have to switch to another browser to get things done. The only common thing I can think of between my phone, laptop, and desktop in Bitdefender anti-virus protection on all of them. Windows 10 computers. Android phone. Thanks.

I did write something descriptive, but this page a has a problem which has deleted my message after submitting: so first look at this page's code! Basically on 69.0.1 as 72.0.2 has basic flaw which slows up every new tab to ten seconds. Sick of updates not working. Have now include a 4 method block to prevent unwanted updates. Now I want to stop ALL nag screens. Websites advise about:config settings which don't exist.
