Frequent Firefox Crashes

I have run Firefox in Safe Mode, and I still get the crashes, often on a Checkout page after getting an order together. My software is updated to the latest versions available, and I have kept my security up to date. If we cannot find a fix to stop all this crashing, I'll have to give up on Firefox as being highly unreliable. Since I am totally blind, RELIABILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

Today when I started Firefox it auto-updated to version 77, and all web-pages looked like a mess of weird symbols like the ones in the screenshot I attached.

I tried disabling all addons and plugins, and some other stuff but nothing worked.

So I downgraded to 76.0.1 and everything works fine, it's definetly a problem with version 77.

I guess I won't be updating until I know this problem was adressed.

Some websites don't display certain letters. Currently, I'm experiencing this problem on thekitchn.com, where the letter "y" isn't displaying. Here's an example sentence, "These steps might seem prett obvious, and for the most part the are, but there’s critical strateg within each of them." I've tried this particular website on Chrome, and have the same problem. However, on Safari all the letters are displayed.

Not all websites behave this way on FF. Out of the seven tabs I have open, only one isn't displaying correctly.

The extensions I have running are: - AdBlock Plus - Facebook Container - Epub Reader - Firefox Colour - Firefox Multi-Account Containers - Privacy Badger - Share Button for Facebook - Side View - SuperStop - To Google Translate - Tree Style Tab

Here are the steps I've taken to test and fix the problem: - To test if the problem is with the website itself, I copied and pasted the words elsewhere, and missing the letter is displayed. - I restarted FF in Safe Mode, but the problem persisted. - I deleted FF from applications, downloaded v.75.0 and installed that. No go.

I'm on a Mac.

Not sure what to do now. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello all! i have had this niggly problem for a while now. so in the firefox search bar, the hisroty of the websites visited does not render properly it's the same with the firefox OPTIONS page, some text is invisible. you can select and copy and paste it, but can't see it, looks like it's highlighted white-on-white it's the same story for some websites, only on and off sometimes, re-loading the webpage makes it work but you cannot always do that, e.g in the middle of a financial transaction i have tried resetting firefox completely uninstalling/reinstalling nothing works only happens on my windows 7 machine, my ubuntu firefox works fine i am pulling my hair out hehe

would be great to hear any suggestions of how to fix this

best regards

Latin-extended characters displayer wrong

Hello

After updating Firefox to 74.0 (x64) at Windows 10 Home x64 (1909) I'm encountering a problem with displaying of certain latin-extended symbols. They seem to display in different weight or completely different font than all the other text. It happens on several sites only, e.g. messenger.com. I did not care about ugliness of this bug, but since it also appears in my Joomle admin panel, it really has influence of my workflow.

What's the problem

  • characters ąęćńśżź display different than all the others on certain websites (1. on the screenshot)

What I've tried to fix it

  • running ClearType wizard
  • checking if hardware acceleratin is on - it is on
  • changing **gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode** to different values
  • checked "Allow sites to use fonts different than used here" option - it is on (2. on the screenshot)
  • tried privacy mode to avoid possible cache problems - did not help
  • (edit) updated drivers for GeForce card

Any help well appreciated. My regards! Grzegorz

Hello,

I noticed a few hours ago that my Google search in Japanese was now displayed in an ugly font I have no memory of (could not identify it, attached a screenshot just in case).

I tried to change my settings for Japanese in Languages and Appearance, but no matter what, this unknown font remains the apparent default on sites such as SUMO and google.com.

I just refreshed Firefox to no avail.

Am I not looking in the right place?

Every website I go to says the following: Error 408, that it's an encoding issue, and to install an addon for unicode.

Almost all of the text has been replaced with a question mark in a diamond. None of my other web browsers are having an issues (I'm using Chrome to write this.) For context, my computer was entirely fine, but then I went to read a book (while leaving it open) and windows must have done a restart for updates that it had been badgering me about last night, because some programs I'd had open before were closed. But Firefox had restarted nearly the same, except that when I went to open Twitter and Facebook both of them had the same Unicode issue.

The website also loads and displays normally for a moment before converting to this unicode error, which makes me wary about whether there is something different going on. It is, after all, trying to get me to install an addon.

Firefox seems to be having some kind of font problem. The odd fonts appear both in the application and on the web pages. The font on the web pages actually changed (from blocky to big loopy script) since I quit and restarted the application. The menu bar at the top of my screen does not show any words when the application is optn. I have a 2012 MacBook Pro with OS 10.14. Firefox 65.0. I'm also running Sophos (protection) and Dr. Cleaner (helps with memory).

Safari does not have the problem - the application, web pages and top menu bar are normal, but I'd prefer to stick with Firefox.

Firefox Quantum v62, fresh install today.

Under about:config, I find that layout.css.font-variations.enabled is locked and set to false. I need to change the value to "true". In the past few versions of Firefox I had this set to true and it enabled testing of variations fonts on web sites just fine.

How do I unlock it so I can change the setting?
