Hi,

in the latest version of Firefox (updated June 2021), the home page had the icons shrink in size considerably.

I'm visually impaired, and this change had made the home page unusable. It's just too hard to see!

Is there a setting to adjust the homepage icons back to their larger size? They used to be 2-3 times the size, and really useful. The boxes the pics are in are still the same, but the icons displayed are tiny now, at least to these tired old eyes.

Thank you in advance! Tony

Print Preview 86.0 too small to see. Also other print features now very difficult

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

Almost every time I search for something, i get the following message:

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?

I am tired of filling in pictures over and over again. Why do the software believe I am a robot? Even the first time in the morning or the last in the evening. I do not have unusual traffic i know of, and I use the best virus program in EU, Bitdefender.

What cause these messages? How to stop it?

Excessive RAM usage

Lately almost every time I use Firefox, RAM usage goes up to 5 GB, CPU usage goes to 100%, and my PC becomes unusable until I kill Firefox processes and wait 5 - 10 minutes for virtual RAM to be cleared out of disk and disk usage to return to normal. This is much worse since the last update, basically making Firefox unusable. Is anyone working on fixes so Firefox doesn't need 5 GB of RAM to open one simple web article?

everyday firefox is no longer compatible with more and more government, bank and corporate web sites

Is firefox deliberately making sure it is no longer compatible with web sites ? every time it is updated i can add web sites to the list of no longer compatible web sites. and they are not changing, so the issue is with firefox. I see in the about us, Firefox is braging about their collaboration with Ford Foundation, omidyar network, color of change and consumers international and ford foundation even referred to it as a match made in heaven. How ever how can screwing up every day of the week be a good thing or heaven ? How is it these ' people ' think their of any help at all ? The issue with the usps OIC portal issues was never fixed, then it was several banks and credit card company's, now it is home depot corporate log in [ not homedepot.com ] also the apple icloud issue, with some hidden page command that causes the courser to no longer work when viewing pictures. So I am wondering how a bunch of deliberate screw ups can brag about how their making it ' better' by making the web browser no longer compatible with high security web sites then trying to say the issue is with them is not good, helpful, or even a step forwards.

So now the only work around is fire fox has to be abandoned as a joke junk web browser and all of those web sites can only be accessed by google chrome.

I'm not sure if it is firefoxs new so called clown high security, how ever forcing users to go to a different web browser is not more security , it is a deliberate screw up, like making a car that breaks down when you drive it out of your driveway and calling it safer as it can not get into a accident if you can not drive it.

and just so that we are crystal clear for years I have run computers on line with NO anti virus or malware protection, yet my computer does not get infected, but how can that be ? the answer is simple, people are morons that do stupid things that cause their computers to be infected, if your IQ was higher then a bug you would not have all of the issues your all having. So what do you do ? you change the browser thinking it is going to protect you from your selfs, when the problem is not with the browser its with you the users.

So how are all of your continuous changes that cause the web browser to no longer function properly a help at all ?

Trying to request a demo from bigcommerce.com. It complains javascript is not enabled. ("Please enable javascript and try again" about:config shows javascript.enabled = true.

What I've tried: 1. Disabled all addons / extensions 1 by 1 until they were all disabled. 2. Turned off tracking protection 3. Turned off content blocking. 4. Set all group policies to "not configured" (Had only disabled off telemetry and update any way). 5. Set network settings to "no proxy". 6. Cleared cache 7. Removed all bigcommerce.com cookies. 8. Reset all permissions (location, camera, notifications etc).

If I restart with add ons disabled it works fine, yet I'd disabled all add ons. The only preferences I had disabled were related to telemetry (in about:config).

Latest update blocking website like indeed from loading in information about employers and other sites too. Every update makes firefox worse. I started using other browsers because now some video's don't work either. Last thing I saw was a QUICK pop-up that said something about bits of trackers now being blocked. Well lots of things are being blocked and making browsing a miserable experience. I tried using the standards system in options. Can't find anything to make it work. Allow lots of things and nothing is working except to probably make the web browser more vulnerable to creeps. Please undo your current update and stop making so many updates. I've had three in the last two weeks and every time they screw up the browser more and more. Just stop it!

Seems like this issue recurs every now and again. Right Click on a link and try to "Save Link As..." and Firefox hangs. All of my browsers started doing it in the last few weeks. Suspected PC Matic, as I had installed it recently, but disabling it did not help. Clear Cache and Default Settings seemed to once or twice but then problem persisted.

Looks like it's a bug in the pop-up blocker. Disabled it and "Save Link As..." again works perfectly. Same for all other browsers. Looks like pop-up block does not recognize "Save Link As..." as a permitted pop-up and the system call to File Explorer (Windows 8.1) has nowhere to go. Task freezes solid and can only be killed by Task Manager.

HTH find the real solution. Thanks!

Unable to restore a password from Firefox browser

Hi everyone,

I do need help on the following issue: I'm logged in my mailbox with Firefox browser. The password is saved and available in the browser settings. BUT. If I try to enter it and log in from another device, the mail service says the password is wrong. I can't understand how it is possible. The browser should use one of the saved passwords for the authorization, right? Why doesn't it work outside this very browser?

MAYBE one day I changed the password in the mail service, logged in, BUT didn't refresh it in the browser settings? May the browser use some cookies, service files or something like that for authorization despite unactual password saved? If yes, then how is it possible to extract the true password out of those files?

I turned to the mail service support, but they can't help me, because I didn't enter my real name, phone number or something during registration that could help to check my identity. So the only opportunity to save my mail is to use the browser files somehow. I'm going to reinstall Windows and I will loose access to my mail forever in this case that would be very very bad.. ((( Please, help!
