Hello,

I had this problem mostly on 1 site across multiple Windows installs. But now it happens on multiple sites. Text overlap each other. I Am using Windows 10 Pro 20H2, Firefox Last stable with only UBlock addon.

I tried: even troubleshoot mode didn't help!

- changing/flushing dns didn't help (heard dns could cause that)

Any idea why is this happening. It doesn't look like site issue, since recently it happened multiple times!

OK, sorry if I dont know all the technical jargon but here are a couple issues I have been having. Currently using FF88.0 on Windows 10 Home edition.

A few updates ago I noticed when I go to print a page from the internet (specifically eBay Order Details) it no longer prints the default auction picture as it appears on the screen but enlarges it up to the original download size. This make the shrink to fit option no longer work properly. So in order to get all of the information I need on one page of print I have to constantly change the size from 40-60% to make it work. Frustrating and time wasting.

Second issue: This one just started with the last update. I use a Rollo label printer and I had everything set up where it worked just fine. After the last update it prints half labels and I cant get it to adjust back properly. Huge issue and time waster.

On average I feel like this slows me down 15-30 minutes a day total.

Firefox crashes whenever I go onto a certain web page such as a few parts of the discord website and some YouTube videos. I have tried nearly everything I can find which is somewhat similar to the issue I am having. I tried disabling WebGL, tweaking security.sandbox.content.level, reinstalling, checking my add-ons, and rebooting my macbook (macOS 10.13.6). The same thing happens on safari, but not chrome.

The crash reason stated is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Here are the crash reports: bp-e8779820-e621-4739-a43e-e392a0210505 bp-29a6f662-0f4c-44d4-afbd-5e5900210505 bp-9ce6f8a8-6ddf-4771-824e-f94280210505

I have an issue where I can not listen to Spotify because Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will not install in Firefox. I visited other threads in this form hoping to find a fix for this issue to no avail. I even Googled it and tried the info from the results still nothing. I have not able to use Spotify for 2 months. Either Mozilla gets on the band wagon and fix this issue with Widevine or dump Widevine and use a different plugin for DRM content. This is very ridiculous.

I updated my Firefox to version 88 as soon as it came out. Continued working and browsing as usual.

3 days in, browser won't connect > close and restart > error Firefox still running in background > wait for processes to close > re-open Firefox > "You've launched an older version of Firefox - please create a new profile / Exit"

Follow the instructions, setup my profile from scratch again, login to all my accounts and proceed to get back to work. Few hours later - Firefox notifies me a newer version is released and i need to update my browser.

Not too long after, Firefox is downgraded to 87 by itself and I repeat the same process over and over again.

I tried:

  • Full uninstall / clean re-install
  • Deleting all profiles and all Mozilla folders and reinstalling
  • Some fix that's supposed to allow me to use my ver.88 profile on ver.87

Something is making Firefox downgrade to 87 by itself - This happens while I am browsing/using Firefox and causes all connections to drop and the browser to Crash soon after.

Any thoughts?

I am running Firefox 88.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) 20H2. I don't think the exact versions are the problem though, because this has been going on for months at least.

My system time zone is manually set to "Haiti (UTC+5:00)" for the Caribbean. My system time is set to automatically sync and my system time zone is set to manual.

The problem is if I open my Firefox browser history with Library > History > Manage History the visit time is an hour later than my system time. For example the history will show a page visit at 14:20 while my system time is still 13:20.

I suspect that Firefox is using the wrong time zone offset, but where can I change that?

Thanks.

I have firefox developer edition 88.0b9, I have disabled updates using policies.json(DisableAppUpdate: true), so the infamous "update to the latest version" popup with the green icon went away. But now it seems there's another form of those popups that firefox employs. And in the search bar this time. Why aren't they disabled by DisableAppUpdate? How can I disable them using about:config or something of the sort? Pretty sure I've got no malware or anything, always been careful about that kind of thing. Don't have many programs installed. Don't have any addons except an adblocker. All the buttons on that annoying popup lead to official mozilla resources: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ So what do I do with those popups? I have no intention of updating(I don't want any redesigns, any new functionaly, any other things that would disrupt me and change the stuff I'm used to). Only want to disable those popups. That's the entire reason I used policies.json - to disable those annoying popups. But now another form of them appears.

When I use the following website, https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/ , some of the features do not work with Firefox.

For example, if you move the cursor to the Brands heading, it shows a drop down list, but if you move the cursor towards the list in any direction, the list disappears (I have attached a screenshot showing the drop down list). The same problem also occurs when you put the cursor onto the On Sale and Services headings as they also display a drop down list.

I have tried running Firefox in Safe Mode (Troubleshoot Mode) but they still don't work.

I have also tried using Chrome and Edge and these functions work okay so any ideas what I need to do to the Firefox settings/options to get these functions to work?

Thanks.

Hey there,

I can not log into the Firefox Addons website at https://addons.mozilla.org

- I click on the "Register or log in" link at the upper right corner.

- It opens a page with my email address and a blue button ton log in (picture 1)

- When I click that blue button, it takes me to the second page where I'm asked to enable 2 step authentication (picture 2)

I don't want to enable 2FA for Firefox Addons website and I don't want to download a third party app for this, I just want to be able to log in to the website.

If I click the "cancel" link (at the bottom), it brings me back from where I was and still not logged in

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I've been getting a lot of crashes on a website I'm developing - for example bp-b1597aaa-c596-4641-ad9b-a9dea0210503 . It's at the stage now where every time I open the site (or a clone of it) it crashes.

This appears to be reported at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1706429 but has severity and priority of P3, perhaps based on 39 reports when the ticket was raised. But there are now 614 of them: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/signature/?product=Firefox&signature=js%3A%3Afrontend%3A%3AGeneralParser%3CT%3E%3A%3AprimaryExpr&date=%3E%3D2021-04-27T17%3A01%3A00.000Z&date=%3C2021-05-04T17%3A01%3A00.000Z&_columns=date&_columns=product&_columns=version&_columns=build_id&_columns=platform&_columns=reason&_columns=address&_columns=install_time&_columns=startup_crash&_sort=-date&page=1#reports

This is really annoying because I'm having to do my website development in Chrome.

I've been a long time Firefox user since around 2005 and have always enjoyed Firefox until now. This issue has been ongoing for over a year though. I never would have thought that a simple task as entering a web address in the address bar and hitting enter would become so difficult, though for a while now this seems to be the case and to the point to where I'm considering not bothering with the Firefox browser anymore. I do enjoy where Firefox is now in current development and the way it looks as well the great performance. However, when basic functionality such as typing in a web address and hitting enter becomes difficult all the aforementioned positives become less and less relevant. It seemed to all start when development came to redesign the appearance of the UI, not sure what version. Basically, what I come to experience now roughly 90 percent of the time I type a web address in the address bar and hit enter is the browser does nothing. Sometimes it takes 5 to 6 tries with having to put the mouse courser back into the address bar and hitting enter multiple times before the browser decides it want's to go the website. Same issue occurs when opening a bookmark in another tab, switch to the tab and the site isn't loaded, have to hit enter multiple times before the web address will begin to load. Seems also that any setting regarding tabs background loading isn't present anymore in the settings either. Same issue will occur when selecting a favorite that comes up while typing in the address bar.

Recently I had reinstalled my entire operating system and was hopeful that this issue would be resolved by doing so with a fresh install of Firefox too, though the issue is still present.

I have no add-ons or themes that modify the address bar, nor any search add-ons. In fact, this issue occurs with no add-ons installed at all. The only thing I can think currently is that it is an issue and or bug of some kind within the search and or address bar settings current design.

My settings here are attached as images.

Hello!

I don't like to use DuckDuckGo, therefore I changed the Default Search Engine which works quite well. In addition I removed DuckDuckGo from the Search Shortcuts.

Nevertheless when I open a new tab and just type in "d" the first suggestion from auto-complete is always DuckDuckGo. This is quite annoying since one of my favourite websites starts with "d" as well. Is there a possibility to force auto-complete to suggest a specific website when I tipe in "d" or at least prevent auto-complete from suggesting DuckDuckGo?

Thanks!

I must have done something wrong here, although I don't think so. this is a follow up, i think, to my other long discussion here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334596

I followed almost everything here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

restarting everything did not work. but I do a lot of restoring config files (sqllite, json, etc...) by copying and pasting in the win explorer system. is that possibly the cause of this? I even re-installed FF, but the corporate peoples' attempt at massive control of the world is getting in the way I think. I know how to re-create the sqlLite files, which I will do now. but my question really is: could I have done something wrong by messing around with these files? I really didn't do much. images attached show more. thanks.

I've used Firefox for many years, and NEVER has the "block audio and video" setting ever worked. It is really annoying to be trying to read an article and have a video playing - distracting me - while I'm trying to read. When I try to ignore it and scroll past, it pops out and starts playing in the lower right hand corner in the way of whatever I'm trying to read, so I have to close the video down. I'm not a programmer, I'm a simple user. Why is Mozilla even pretending to block videos when they don't?
