Within the last few days, the font in gmail has changed. When I go to gmail settings I can select a different font but the "save settings" remains greyed out and therefore the change cannot be made. If I enter gmail on a different browser I can change the font. This fault seems to be related to Firefox. Do you have a solution?

Hey,

i try to use firefox multiaccount container but it does not work. Better said if i add the add-on it does not show up in system bar (up in the right corner), but you can see it in the add-ons and themes setting menu. So there is only half of layout given but no function of it at all compairing to other persons using it, e.g. "how to use firefox multiaccount container tutorial videos" etc. Trying to handel the settings of it with the add-ons and themes menu does not help.

For the last month the amount of letters/numbers/symbols in my address bar has slowly become less. It only happens when I have more than 1 tab &/or window open. It is now at the point where I'll have no more than a dozen characters in the address bar down to absolutely nothing being displayed there. I had HP do a wipe of my HDD & reinstall of the entire MS OS a month ago. I noticed the issue a few days after that but it was also after the first of 2 FF updates. Sometimes it has bugs but usually the next update fixes it completely; but not this time. I'm not sure if it Is a FF issue. I have checked all thru here and even scrubbed thru MS Win10 support pages and found nothing anywhere similar. Attached is a current screenshot. As you can see, there are only 4 characters in this header while 2 others have None and one has 11 +, 4 numbers and 6 random letters. This has me totally baffled.

I've read all I could find on the ESR releases and even found this release calendar that indicates that there are two versions, but not why there are two ESR versions.

The past couple weeks while I'm trying to use Firefox on windows 10 desktop, it will out of the blue come up with No Internet Connection. Sometimes it happens within 5 min. or up to 30 min. On the rare occasion I am able to view my new emails & links w/o a problem. The automatic update was done a few days ago but didn't really seem to make that much difference. The lights on modem continue green & router is orange for normal. So I know it is not my service provider. Besides I can use internet on Edge w/o a problem. However I have used Firefox for years & really like it. I'm not much of a techie person, so simple explanation/fix on my issue would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

Dear community,

I understand that tracking of third-party cookies is now FireFox' default. However, I put my FireFox privacy options to "strict" and opened the website tui.com. What I see in the web developer tools is that several cookies are set, which are not tui.com itself (please see screenshot). The first might be exlainable since it is a subdomain (?), but why are the second and third set? However, when clicking on the data protection icon in form of a shield next to the "ssl-lock" I see a lot of ther third party cookies are prevent. Why arent the second and third in the screenshot?

Thank you very much for your time!

To Whom It May Concern:

When going in to add exceptions (url's) for the security level (which is "Standard") I'm not being allowed to add any url as apparently my browser is being managed by my "Organization" - problem is I have, and am not a part of any "organization" as I am self-employed. This is concerning on the level of security, the organization is shown as "ImportEnterpriseRoots" - and I have no idea wtf this so-called organization is. Has my browser been hijacked or compromised in a very unique sense? If so, it has been, from what I would imagine, more a from surveillance aspect. Either that or I performed some type of error, and do not know how to remedy this.

Would greatly appreciate any advice or information you can provide. Thanking you in advance,

Very sincerely, Brian S.

Hi, I use Firefox, with google.co.uk as my search engine. I have had a problem for several months now, whereby I cannot access images/shopping pages on Google. e.g. I enter a search criteria in Google - say, TOP GUN. I then click on "Images" option, and the "Before you proceed" page opens, ref cookies. I click on "Accept all", but the images page does not open. The same thing happens for "shopping".

I installed Google Chrome, seperately, and it works fine with that, just not with google.co.uk via Firefox. I have uBlockOrigin installed. I disabled it, but still doesnt work (although I just realised I didnt restart pc after disabling it, perhaps I should have?)

Other addons/Extensions are Dark reader, Dark theme for Google, Dark theme for YouTube, and New Tab override (plus uBlockOrigin, as already mentioned). I cleared my cache etc via Security/Privacy on Firefox settings. I used to be able to access these pages, however for past couple of months, no luck.

Any suggestions/assistance would be appreciated.

I notice some problems with firefox since the latest update:

1. Right after the update I enabled the settings to empty the cookies each time FF is closed down ("Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"). But, I ended not liking this feature since it constantly demanded me to remember my passcodes and became a headache, so I disabled it. But FF still continues deleting cookies each time, and seem to be stuck on deleting cookies.

I've been given various suggestions to go to resolve this, like reinstall, config, etc., uninstall apps, but nothing helps.

2. Another issue I have is FF with Facebook. Using Facebook in FF I can't backspace and I can't post any comment. If I try to post comments it simply moves the cursor down on the page but you can't post anything.

None of these issues continue in other browsers so it must be FF related.

3. FF seem to use enormous amount of memory and power usage, especially when multiple tabs are open (or even if tabs are not open it shows previous tabs in the Task Manager). I'm not a programmer or coder but a friend of mine who was a senior programmer in the banking industry told me it's possible for coders to solve this issue. If I understood him right (and I apologize if my wording is wrong), a solution would be to keep tabs in sleep state if they are open but not active on top so they don't keep running or updating data all the time. This of course would need consideration that sometimes people want to listen to videos or audio while using other tabs - but that would involve every single tab and can perhaps be provided as an option.

Many people like to keep multiple tabs open, yet still have good browsing performance. Maybe there can be a new project to offer better tab management to make them easily visible and accessible? Bookmarks are not that great because they disapper into a long stream of text without clarity what exactly they are until you open the page, and even then scrolling down and using bookmarks is not that great if you have many saved......

YouTube worked fine in the past, but for at least the last few days (likely longer) Firefox 103.0.1 won't play anything. Chrome works fine still. Other large transfers work fine.

Latest video I tried to play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkN8Aqb2IBc Is a DND group playing with an actor from The Outpost (TV show on CW)

In Firefox I see the initial video preview image, and after clicking to play I get a constant spinning progress animation but the video never plays. Turning on the debug overlay info shows plenty of download capacity detected (I forget the name in the UI) but very little ever transfers (bars further down).

Only oddity I can see in the debug info it puts in the the clipboard is the wrong Angle GPU. I have 2 x NVIDIA 1080ti's in SLI, and it sees a 980. Chrome shows the expected value instead. I filed a bug on the Angle project just in case. I looked on the Firefox about:support page with hardware acceleration disabled and it showed two webgl driver entries (1 and 2), both with 1080ti listed.

I tried disabling the performance feature setting and hardware acceleration (closed app then opened again). No difference.

Windows 10 x64, latest patches. Latest NVIDIA drivers through GFE (auto updates itself). Two Windows 10 graphics options are on (GPU scheduler and Variable Refresh Rate).

I've seen a couple notifications from Windows about Firefox "attempting" to use GPU hw acceleration, but I have no idea why it'd be blocked. Clicked it and it did nothing. I looked in my event viewer and didn't find anything useful either. I haven't manually set any applications to use a certain GPU. Integrated GPU from CPU is disabled in BIOS.

GPU isn't overclocked. CPU is barely. And I see no reason to think this is related. In the past I'd get reboots and event viewer errors. Even when it worked in the past I was similarly overclocked. All programs (diagnostics) I've run to verify proper functioning have passed.
