Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Hi, after the update to Firefox 103, everything is too big in my Firefox. Looking at the release notes, I realize that this is because Firefox is now responding differently to the "make everything bigger" setting in Windows. I typically have this set to 150 to get everything in Windows set to the appropriate sizes. This was fine with the old Firefox behavior, but now everything in Firefox is too large. Can I revert Firefox to the old font scaling behavior?

 add-on, setting adjustment, or about config switch?

Without my doing anything, firefox has decided to download pdf files in its own html. I have changed the default to adobe rather than ask. When I open the downloaded file in adobe it comes down as an adobe file, I tell it to save as an adobe pdf, but it appears in file manager and then opens in firefox html. Worse, it, whatever it is, has gone into file manager and changed adobe pdf files, some of which have been sitting on my hard drive for some years, into firefox html files. How do I rectify this please?

Hello. Windows system, firefox update came, the size of the top bar is extremely large, while the system scale is 125%, and in the firefox itself 100%. Such actions were the reason for leaving chrome. Does history repeat itself?

I am trying to log on to a website in order to register a guarantee for a product I have purchased. However, when I try to log in to this website, I am booted off by their security system with the following error messages:

Block ID: IPB17 Block reason: Your request was not allowed due to IP blocking (not white listed).

I have been trying to find out how to whitelist this site. However, if I enter the question "how do I whitelist a site?" all I get are lists of people who are trying to resolve whitelisting problems which don't seem even vaguely similar to what I need.

Where can I find instructions on how to whitelist a site?

Hello, I need your help and support. I put in steps what i had done.

1. I had a sync in my account dchisinska-br@o2.pl 2. Format C: without extracting my profile 3. After reinstal Win10 I wanted to sync but forgot the password 4. Reset password, BUT didnt know that when I change my password without Recovery Key all will be lost. 5. When I realized that this happened I found a profile from 2019. 6. Every time when I copy data form old profile to new profile browser want to refresh and whole profile is clear withou data. 7. Also I opened Help->more tools for Troubleshooting information -> Profile folder -> Open -> COPY from old to new. Nothing happened. Still have nothing.

I lost all my password, history and everything.

Please help or how to solve this problem. Or maybe you can recover data from SYNC which is missing after changing password to my mozilla account.

Thank you, Danuta

- You updated and took my bookmarks away (something I needed and used all the time. How can you do that? Really? - also every time I go on line I get another stupid sign at the top right telling me to update again. I'm being pestered to do something that screwed me over. - I’ve tried the (old firefox date folder, thing) and it didn’t work. (so please don't suggest that) - I have to go looking for what bookmarks I have left (no more drop-down menu with all of them right there where over the years I've organized them)

I used to like this program, a lot. If I can’t get my Book marks back I’m done with FireFox. What the hell were you thinking?

When I start to type my login info, it will show previous emails or phone numbers that i have typed before. I have Auto fill turned off and customized my privacy so this should not be saved. What is the issue here? Cant find an answer anywhere. I have cleared all data, cookies, and history, and the previous logins are still there on each website.

Hi Windows 10 21h2 Firefox 100.0 When pasting images from the clipboard into a website (atlassian confluence for example) firefox uses a generic image name (grafik.png) instead of the actual filename. This started to happend a few weeks ago. I was not able to find a demo page where this can be tested, other browsers don't have this issue.

Anyone having similiar issues or an idea how to fix it?

Thanks

I use Firefox as my default browser and as the default browser for viewing PDF files. I noticed after Firefox 100 was released, the PDF icon changed from the Firefox icon to a different PDF icon. At first I thought the change was related to a Windows update but it appears to be from Firefox as I can see the Firefox logo in the background. I tried switching to a different browser but I can see they have their own version of the PDF icon. I like the original Firefox PDF icon and would prefer to use that as the default icon for PDF files. Is there a way I can switch the PDF icon back to the original one?

Ever since Firefox updated to the new version I've been having constant crashes. I've tried restarting in Safe Mood which doesn't help. Pretty much Firefox will open, say it's not responding, and then by the time it looks like it's about to restore my tabs it crashes. I had to do a refresh and transferred the backup files from an older session which worked, but then it eventually crashed again. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and tried opening my older profile but it keeps happening. I really need to restore my previous session. There's nothing with my computer that seems to be causing it. I did have 2 windows open with about 8,000 tabs total which I'm sure could be part of the reason, but it never really had trouble before and only just started crashing since the update. Is there any way to fix this without starting over? I read that this is a bug that others have dealt with previously.

Some additional information. I'm on a 64-bit Windows 10 PC.
