Recently I have been seeing, what I believe is character encoding errors on many web sites.

As you can see from the attached, it appears as a series of 'ddddddddddd' but if I copy and paste that into Word or a text editor it appears correctly. Kinda random, some sites, some areas.

My Firefox automatically updates, so I do not know what version this started.

Some sites like OP.GG have a black stroke on letters. I've already looked at other forums and options.


Settings > Language and Appearance > Fonts and Colors > Advanced > Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above. This method does not work along with disabling high contrast (disabled already)

Any sort of help would be appreciated except telling me what I already did. Thank you

Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

So I've got Proton UI forced on me today in 92.0 update and accordingly had to spend my entire evening trying to repair all of the damage. So far I've managed to fix menu spacing and the way tabs look all while not breaking previous walls of text in userChrome.css meant to fix even older UI problems. Still one thing I failed to find any solutions to is the bookmark drop-down menus color issue. Those menus used to be gray, but now they are all bright white, which to me is super annoying. Any tips on how to fully recolor those?

Had to reinstall Windows 10. Now, Firefox Login and Passwords is not working even after entering my login information in Firefox Lockwise. Websites do not ask if I want to save my login and password so now I have to re-enter the information every time I go to a site where I have previously entered that information.

Why??

Rendering issue since 89.0 or 90.0

OS is Win7-x64, graphics Intel HD Graphics on Haswell pentium G3220 with latest available driver.

Since version 89.0 or 90.0 (not sure which) following webpage rendering issues appeared on my machine: - page loads ok, but when I scroll up/down with pageup/pagedown keys then some keystrokes are not followed by redraw, or redraw is partially blank (horizontally split - see attached screenshot). Subsequent keystrokes either have the same problem or are rendered correctly. - scrolling is only problematic with pageup/pagedown keys. Alternative methods (up/down keys, mousewheel, holding and dragging scrollbar or clicking above or beneath it) work ok. - I'm sure that version 89.0 or 88.0 didn't have this problem. Since then I haven't changed any about:config settings or updated graphics driver. Compositing was then and now set at WebRender (not WebRender (Software)). - I tried disabling hardware acceleration on version 92.0, but it hasn't solved issue, so I reverted this back.

Troubleshooting info is attached.

Thanks in advance for your help.
