Recently (the last week), my Firefox browser is randomly dropping characters from the text of a web page. I have the latest update (83.0 (64-bit)) and have also tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. This problem is not happening with other programs, (text editors, spreadsheets) or in chrome. I have attached an image below to show the problem. If I refresh the page, usually all the characters appear. If I select the text, the characters also appear. Any suggestions? I haven't recently added any new plugins.

I have a new laptop (Lenovo Legion 7, Win10 install) which I've been using for about a week now. However, with watching videos (Youtube mainly) & streams (Twitch) I get stuttering video playback. The laptop has a NVidia RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics chip so I wouldn't think that is the issue. I've seen several different topics on the internet already about tweaking settings in the about:config page related to video stuttering (though most relate to clearing media.benchmark.vp9.fps and restarting FF). None of those things helped. The only thing I found was disabling hardware acceleration. If I disable that, everything is fine with both video & stream playback. I wonder if this is related to the NVidia driver, but I have the latest one installed on the system (457.51 as of writing). This issue also persisted with older drivers that came with the system.

The attached data is from when I have the hardware acceleration enabled, and thus have the stuttering video playback.

I visit this site, www.bringatrailer.com on a daily basis and of course i use Firefox

I think, but i'm not sure, since apple moved to Big Sur, i'm running into issues when using the site.

The first issue is that when i look at a specific listing and scroll down to the comments section, i get this message:

"28 Comments

Please enable JavaScript to engage in the discussion on this site"

This happens on every listing i visit BUT it does not happen when using the BAT site when i use Chrome

The second issue is that when i go to my account/profile/notifications and go to change the toggles it bumps me back to the top of the page. This does not happen on Chrome.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

A while back, I accidentally clicked on "always block" in the popup when I received a notice of a potential cross-site script attack for a frequently visited site. Since then, whenever the site comes up in a search and i click on it, Firefox will not open it. Instead, I need to right-click, copy link, and paste in the address bar. I have tried to find information on how to undo this, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a list somewhere of blocked sites that I can unblock? Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

I'm running Firefox 83.0-2 on a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 on a Dell Precision 7550 laptop, and many webpages have words that look like they are not decoded properly (images below). Everything looks fine when using Chrome. Can anyone think what the issue is?

For the attached Wikipedia page, the pattern looks like it's specific to italicized hyperlinks. I also see it in other places, e.g. any comments in a Python Juypter notebook.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

After updating to FF 83.0 something has changed in font rendering. Another update breaks something for me and another silence in changelog.

When hardware acceleration is enabled in firefox settings I observe that fonts which are overlayed on youtube videos have ugly chromatic aberration effect around them and they are much thinner than they should be. When I disable hardware acceleration they are fine - they look the same as on different browsers, for example Brave.

Is there any way to fix font rendering without need to disable hardware acceleration?

Hi there,

I am running Windows 7 with Firefox 83.0.

I have two PDF fillable forms that have calculations that run. Basically you enter your mileage you drove and it adds up the mileage for each line you enter.

I have noticed that the form is fillable but none of the calculations run.

It works fine in chrome and internet explorer.

I started having an issue where I do not get any audio from Firefox. Everything else works fine. Firefox is not muted, it's not turned down in the mixer. I completely uninstalled using Revo Uninstaller to make sure ALL registry and directories were deleted. When I reinstalled it did not give me the "You've already installed" message, so I know this was a complete reinstall.... Still no audio at all.

I hardly know how to describe the problem I've been having but I'm fed up with it! Just now I was in a site to purchase an item and clicked to go through PayPal. I could enter all my log in details for PayPal but it would not open the PayPal site. This has happened every time I've tried to use PayPal lately. I then have to go and use Edge and do my purchase through there, no problem at all.

Often when I've tried to open a log in window that opens in a separate pop up style window, that window will only open as a tiny window in the top left corner. I have to drag the bottom and sides to get it big enough to fill out. Then when you enter that info ready for the next section, it reverts right back to the tiny window once more. I've done all sorts of things in my settings and mostly no change. I did however get the bank log in window to stop doing it and work properly.

Another issue is the correct time for me here in Aust is no longer being recognised in some cases. One is the Track My Hours App. I enter 'Start now' and it says 6:55 AM when it's actually 4:55 PM on my computer clock! It is not the App as I now use it in Edge as well and it is fine there. I never used to have this problem with the much earlier versions of Firefox, it only started a month or so ago when I got a new computer with the latest version installed, at that stage I think it was 72 and I had other problems as well that finally got sorted.

I really want to continue using Firefox but can't do so with several sites and then waste a lot of time swapping over to another browser. I have version 83 now.

Can anyone please help!!! Thanks.

Recently, I have been blocked from visiting certain websites by Firefox, which are perfectly fine websites. I have to close out of Firefox and use Safari to connect to these websites. One of the websites is my City of San Bruno website: https://www.onlinebiller.com/sanbruno/index.html.

This is just one of several websites in which I'm told the website there is a potential security issue. Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue: I copy and pasted the warning below: "Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.onlinebiller.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? www.onlinebiller.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

I contacted the City of San Bruno and was told it's a browser problem. As I mentioned above I can connect to these sites through Safari with no problem.

Thank You for any explanation/assistance on how to connect to these websites using Firefox.

I've just installed the latest Ubuntu OS on my computer and when starting Firefox i get this problem while trying to play the latest YouTube videos where they say "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. Click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video." so I've tried to click on the link but then Firefox said my browser was already up to date. I've then tried to disable my adds on and try in safe mode but that did not help. I've tried installing some adds on, that didn't help either. I've tried uninstalling and installing back Firefox, that didn't work. every media.mediasource config are enabled, that didn't work. and when i try using another browser, the media can be played just fine (i used chromium). So if someone has any idea as to what might be causing this issue i'd be grateful (also, older video seems to be working just fine)
