ASUS recently updated the firmware on my home router. Since then Firefox does not work when accessing my ASUS router's management console. By this I mean that I get a blank white screen after connecting to the router. How do I go about debugging this? I am guessing that the issue is caused by one of the add-ons that I have installed in Firefox, but I guess it could also be a setting I have made. In any event, I am looking for a quick methodology to figure out what is causing this incompatibility.

I have used mozilla firefox for over 5 years. It have always had a GOOGLE search bar in the center of the screen and it has worked correctly - now whenever i try to input words into the GOOGLE search bar located in the center of the screen it defaults and jumps to the URL/Web Address Bar at the near top off the screen - this jump to the address bar is VERY distracting and inconvenient! How can I revert to using ONLY the search bar in the center of the screen? I have worked on this for two solid days and none of the recommended fixes have worked. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Google and Firefox numerous times but now it always defaults any Google search to the address bar! THIS MUST STOP!!! Thanks!!! Sincerely!!!

Please provide an option to revert to the smaller line spacing and the original smaller top window title vertical size. For those of us using smaller displays the new sizes in Firefox make it much less friendly, and inconsistent with other software on the same PC. Thanks!

I've just upgraded to Firefox 91.0.2 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 system. Clicking on the Firefox icon on my toolbar indicates that the program is active, but no window appears. Trying to close the program by right-clicking doesn't do anything and I have to use the Task Manager to get rid of it. The attached screenshot shows what happens when I hover the cursor over the taskbar icon.

Clicking on a URL sent me in an email also does the same.

Oddly, right-clicking and selecting 'open new window' works, so I can still sort of function, but it's a real pain.

I have only one monitor, so it's not a dual-monitor issue.

I have Firefox 91.6.0esr (64-bit) on Windows. Previously I could access PDFs on a number of websites using the inbuilt PDF viewer. However now Firefox returns a save-as prompt.

I have checked the headers of some of these pdf pages and the header content-disposition: inline; filename=<abcdefg> is contained which I think should cause the PDF to be rendered in the browser but this is not happening. The pdfs on the same pages can be viewed using Edge.

Has the behavior of Firefox recently been changed?

On Monday (8/16/2021) I started Firefox and all PDF links opened in its viewer. This was strange since I always have these files set to open in a third party viewer since I have to view the files while using Firefox to search related data. I checked the settings and they were set properly. I tried changing the settings to other options as well as other readers and none of them work.

I went on line and tried ever suggestion that I could find without any luck. I have reset Firefox to it original state and the issue continues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For the past couple of weeks I am not able to log in to AA.com. When I fill in the require fields ( AAdvantage # or username, Last name, Password), it redirects to https://www.aa.com/sorry.html. I have no problem logging in on one of the other major web browsers. Ad blocker is turned off, cache has been cleared, all the tricks that usually solve such problems. So, I'm beginning to think that something in a recent Firefox update doesn't play nice with AA.com. I'm using Firefox Ver 91.0.2.

Any suggestions?

From about the time I installed Dropbox 2-3 weeks ago my Windows 10 PC won't go into sleep mode unless I close Firefox first. Closing Dropbox makes no difference so it might just be co-incidence. If I use Norton to run a scan and go into sleep mode at end that also works, and PC stays asleep until I wake it. Have tried refreshing Firefox but no improvement (running Firefox 91.0.2 (64bit)). Any thoughts please?

I been reading various guide about how to use CSS to override the hyperlink color. But it is not working, Firefox are not grabbing the userChrome.css from the folder. I am not sure if there is other step that I have to do since I did everything to enable it through multiple guides.


  • toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets is enabled
  • chrome folder is created and located in my profile root folder
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css is in chrome folder
  • restarted Firefox multiple times even checking the task manager to ensure that Firefox is absolutely shut down.

Based on those above, it should be working. I thought it was the CSS code, however Stylus have no issue with the code. Yes, there are two empty rules in there because I got the impression that CSS strongly relies on inheritance. So I set this way to ensure that that nothing will be overridden by the website CSS. I created a clean fresh profile and set the same thing above and restarted Firefox. Unfortunately, it didn't work. So the addons are ruled out. my default profile is ruled out since the clean fresh profile having the same issue.

I don't know what is the possible issue of this? I don't know if my CSS is defined correctly since Stylus does not have a issue with it and applying CSS on all websites. Anyone have a clue?

My CSS content:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

a: link {} a: visited {

   color: #ffa500 !important;

} a: hover {} a: active {

   color: #ffa500 !important;

}
