For some reason when I view one particular JSON page the response is collapsed on page load. There are thousands of nodes so clicking them individually won't work. I can't see an "Expand all" button at the moment, but this would definitely solve the problem.

EDIT: Some JSON responses do have an "Expand all" button, but some don't? Is there a way to enable this for all?

I am a long-time Firefox user who uses Intuit's Quickbooks Online. I have printed checks through Firefox for years. In the last three pay periods there are portions of the pay stub that are covered with "x's" and "y's" so tax categories, etc cannot be seen. If I switch to Safari, I don't get any of the bothersome characters, but my checks are not aligned to the printer as they were using Firefox. I hate having people tell me to switch to Safari or Chrome to get something done. I chose Firefox for a reason and it has worked up to now. Perhaps completely unrelated, why did the Firefox icons on my Mac(s) change from the cool orange and blue fox to a blank sheet with a pencil and ruler. Surely that wasn't on purpose. Thank you for the help.

After changing the size of the paging file, the browser began to absorb all the available memory and crash itself and other applications

win 7 x64, 65.0.1 I changed the paging file from a dynamic value to a fixed one (twice as much RAM), after which firefox spontaneously began to absorb all the RAM, which subsequently led to the crash of firefox itself, and other applications (such as discord, gog galaxy, etc.). This does not happen all the time, I can use the browser for an hour, then the memory will start to disappear, or I can only launch the browser and it will immediately begin to absorb memory. After restarting browser, everything returns to normal and no problems are observed until the computer is restarted. How to fix it all?

When typing on websites such as facebook and on several other sites, if I press the "A" key the focus will be removed from the input box and the next available dropdown box will open with nothing selected. This has been an ongoing problem on Firefox for Ubuntu, I have tried another keyboard and another browser so it seems to only be firefox.

I have just purchased tickets online, and when I go to view them I just get text. If I open the same page in a different browser I can see the tickets and then download a pdf file or print. I have changed the default application to Adobe Acrobat Reader, but nothing changed. I get the same type of result on other web pages. Sorry,this web page is not uploading the screen shot of the page. So here is a small part of the text at the top of the page.

How can I downgrade Firefox 65 back to 64?

After installing 65 on one of my systems, I noticed a number of user interface elements that didn't look right and for some reason my addon's page just showed blank rectangles where my addons would be, so I thought I'd downgrade to 64. I installed 64 and it seemed successful, but it asked to reboot at the end, which doesn't always happen with upgrades.. but I rebooted and when the system came back up, nothing happened, and my prior Firefox link didn't work anymore. I tried reinstalling 64 again but it said something like the installation was in progress and wanted to reboot again, but again nothing happened. I had to select a new directory for the installation to get it to work.

I thought maybe it was a fluke, so I tried it on another system... and same thing. So is there something unique about version 65 that is making the downgrade fail? What's the right way to downgrade this version?

When I try to update my Flash Player I get a message that says Firefox does not support my Adobe flash player. It will not tell me what one to try. It just has a whole list of flash player versions that it does not support. I can't play my favorite game Just Words. That's all I ask of my computer right now that I can not do. I try to play it and it crashes almost every time. It freezes up, wipes the game out or whatever so that I can not play it. I have tried to access Internet Explorer thinking it would let me play my game and when I click on it I get the message Can not find Firefox, etc. I am getting so frustrated with Firefox. My sister's husband said it was the best browser to use so I started using it a long time ago. Now I'm beginning to think I should completely uninstall it and use something else. A lot of the time when I'm trying to play my game it slows and stops working completely. Then I get the very hated message pop up that says, A web page is slowing down your browser, what do you want to do, with the choice of Stop it or wait. I have tried clicking both and nothing works. It keeps annoyingly popping back up and I am sick to death of it. What is wrong and what can I do to fix it please???
