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.

I'm having a problem with mysqli update of one column. It doesn't work in firefox but works in chrome, opera and edge.

As you can see below the statement itself consist from ten different values and all the others are inserted correctly in all browsers. Problem is with the first column named wolny_zajety - it is 0 by default and it doesn't update to 1.

Here is my code:

$busy = 1;

$stmt = $con->prepare("UPDATE rezerwacje_opony SET wolny_zajety = ?, usluga = ?, opony = ?, numer_rejestracyjny = ?, marka = ?, model = ?, imie = ?, telefon = ?, email = ?, opcjonalne_informacje = ? WHERE data = '".$day."' AND godzina = '".$hour."'");

$stmt->bind_param('isssssssss', $busy, $service, $additional, $registry, $make, $model, $fullname, $phone, $email, $infofromuser);

$stmt->execute();

$stmt->close();

I tried several things but nothing works. Can anybody help me?

I use the Firefox browser as my main browser since a couple of years. Yesterday I used is as usual. Today after I started up my computer Firefox hardly worke. Firefox starts ( a little slower than usual) but I cannot brows to any page. It takes very much time to go to a page (over 5-15 minutes), usually a time-out had happened beforehand. Firefox uses quite a lot of CPU today, when trying to open webpages (only Google home page had opened properly after a number of minutes, no other website has opened)..

To try and solve the problem we have deinstalled Firefox and we have installed it again, but that doesn't change the situation.

All other browsers (like Edge and Chrome) work properly but I prefer Firefox.

What may be the problem and what can I do to use firefox again?

Hi!

Updated FF on my Linux box today & now the NYT homepage can't be loaded. Altho' the WaPo homepage seems to load faster, the NYT just times out in mid-render, probably due to the site's heavy javascript. FF doesn't pop up any error messages, alas.

I'm assuming the new FF is simply allergic to the NYT's clunky code. But still. . .any tips, tricks, workarounds or hints to fix?

I have been viewing this website for years and, suddenly, this evening, the text in certain files on the website has changed to white text on black background, when viewed through Firefox for Windows on my Laptop.

Story files on this website are either in a basic doc format or in html. The html files are fine but the doc files are the ones displaying this strange change in 'behaviour'. Just for comparison, even though Firefox is my preferred browser, I tested the issue on Edge; the doc files, when viewed there, still display as black on white, as usual, so to say.

I have reviewed the web and found various things about Windows wide settings and also a post about the prefs.js file. The windows wide settings didn't seem to have any effect. I did the procedure of renaming the prefs.js file to prefs-old.js, which forced Firefox to return to default settings, but there was still no 'correction'. I also completely shut down the laptop and restarted; again no resolution of the problem.

Any ideas, please?

Hello,

Sorry if there is already a solution to my problem but I've searched for hours without success.

I live in France and I purposely set my system language to English to have everything in English but for some specifics french websites I want them to be displayed in french by default. (not all of thoses websites offers to remember the default language nor have a language switcher)

I tried all the extensions suggested on superuser.com but none of them work (anymore, I guess).

By memory I tried the following Mozilla Firefox extensions with no success :

   Language Switcher
   Language Switch
   Quick Accept-Language Switcher

Also, the point is to "remember" the websites and default language because currently I always have to edit the URL to replace "en" by "fr" and then reload the page.

   OS version : macOS Big Sur 11.2.1
   Firefox version : 86.0

The other workaround I have is to use another browser with the French language set as default but I'm really looking for a solution allowing me to use only one browser for personal web browsing.

Thanks and have a nice day

For a long time now (at least a few months), intermittently and while browsing Google Analytics, I need to refresh every other screen because the tables on the bottom of the screen sometimes do not scroll down. Refreshing via F5 fixes this, but needs to be reinforced when the table is tweaked. It might go away if the table is completely changed by navigating to another report with another URL.

When this error happens, it feels like as soon as the page is loaded, the viewport flickers, and a second scroll bar pops up. This causes the long tables on the lower half of the screen to remain unscrollable, even though fully loaded and present.

As a curiosity, the "Take a Screenshot" option can scroll down the page (while saving a an entire page, or via the selection tool). Nohuman input can replicate this. I have tested Tab, arrows, Page Up/Down buttons, manually scrolling from either scroll bar or the mouse wheel from anywhere on the screen, search, etc.

I type in google into the address bar. Then press Ctrl+Enter to give it the ".com" at the end. The address bar changes to "google.com", but then redirects me to "excite.com".

But if I type in "google.com", it goes to "google.com".

"google" is the only scenario it happens to me. Why is it resolving like that?!

Hello everyone. I noticed a small problem on my own. When I open a channel on YouTube, the video that is on the main page of the channel I went to starts by itself. I know this is normal. But when I then go to another channel in YouTube, the video from the main page of the first channel continues to be launched. I went to listen to the radio on the channel, but the music and sound from the previous video got mixed, they started to sound together. I'm using Linux Mint 20.1 and I don’t know how things are on Windows. So I think the problem is hidden in the browser itself.

Firefox is up to date as are my video drivers. This issue only occurs on Firefox, playing the videos in Chrome or IE results in smooth and expected playback at all resolutions and frame rates (1080 60fps, 4k, etc).

When playing videos through the Firefox browser however, the video will stutter, repeat and recycle frames periodically, causing weird and unpleasant frame jumps. The audio playback does not seem to be affected at all.

I disabled the small number of add-ons I have and the problem still persists.

For the past few days, i haven't been able to get into my Walmart MC account. I've never had a problem using Firefox before. The log in page started loading, but stopped on a white screen and never completed. Walmart told me to check my cookies and java, and suggested i try using chrome. I went to the last option first and logged in no problem. I like Firefox better than chrome, so does anyone know what i can do to make Firefox work on the page?
