Hi everyone,

There seems to be a some kind of issue when it comes to rendering Vietnamese characters on Google Translate. Vietnamese characters look weird when it comes to diacritical marks, when I inspect the text there is Arial out of nowhere.

I tried clearing the cache and start Firefox in safe mode but both didn't work. I also tried to re-install Roboto font on my machine, but that didn't work either. This problem appeared in both Linux and Windows 10.

It looks normal on Chrome and other Chromium-based browser, but not in Firefox.

In the image below, the one on left is Firefox, the one on the right is Chrome.

Anyone have any idea how to resolve or further investigate this problem?

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

As in the topic. When I scan the QR code with Google Authenticator, the account is added and new codes start spinning (labeled Firefox ($email)). However, when I enter the visible code into the Enter security code input, I get "Incorrect security code" error (tooltip).

I can see Google Authenticator listed as a supported application, is this no longer valid?

I also tried typing the secret key into the app directly with the same results.

Thanks for help in advance.

85.0.1 (64-bit) Linux

All the addon icons I had moved from the toolbar to the overflow menu a while ago have disappeared for some reason.

Only standard application icons via the customize window can be moved in/out of the overflow area.

Disabling and re-enabling the addons does nothing. The addon icons that are missing from the overflow (that I had put in there) are now all unavailable. I tried to uninstall/reinstall one addon as a test but that did not restore the addon icon. No addons are in the right click menu either.

Anyone else seeing this issue?

Hello dear community,

I recently switched to a dual boot system and got Ubuntu 20.04.1. If I want to watch Netflix for example I cannot because of DRM settings (at least the pop-up of Firefox says so). Other video and audio content is working fine so far. The guidelines on what to do to solve the problem like this

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-drm?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

won't work unfortunately. Does someone have any other idea what to possibly do?

Thanks a lot for your help! -Jo

I am using Firefox with Default Search Engine set to Duck Duck Go. I seem to be unable to connect to duckduckgo.com be it either through typing my search in the address bar or duckduckgo.com. All I get is: "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." Internet connection seems fine (no trouble connecting to other sites). Sometimes clearing "Cached Web Content" helps but it is troublesome to clear cache after each browser restart. How can I get the Duck to work with the Fox?

Selected options: Use the address bar for search and navigation Default Search Engine - DuckDuckGo Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed

84.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Manjaro Linux Manjaro - 1.0

I would be happy to provide any additional information if needed.

I find it really bad, if i post a bug and you just archive without even try to fix the problem! It makes me extremely angry! Bad behavior!

Please stop that and re-open the case.

Jan Ps. same system (Lenovo Thinkpad X300 with Xubuntu 16.04LTS 64bit (account A) )now running Firefox 85.0.1 64bit can now print, I can't find any mentioning in release notes to how previous version 75.0 and now this one is different and why this one now can print.

It would be nice to get this solved, since other people here has had this one too and it seems to jump between versions and OS(linux an windows).

Is there an easier way to view two tabs on the screen at the same time - "split screen" fashion? One can open one tab in a second window and adjust to have one window on the top half of the display and the other on the bottom. But this is a awkward.

See screenshot of this. It shows downtown Minneapolis in Google maps at two different scales. (Note that the I35W crossing of the Mississippi in the upper right corner is the one that collapsed in 2011).

One can switch back and forth between two tabs (maybe after moving the two tabs to be adjacent). But this is still suboptimal.

I use splitscreen in my text editor all the time (vertically or horizontally) and find it very useful. I wish there were an easy way to switch to/from split screen in Firefox.

BTW I searched the Firefox "Find help..." for: "split screen" tabs and got 1640 hits! I looked at the first 10 pages and saw nothing relevant.
