password listed in the saved logins is correct, but it does NOT export to the bank a/c correctly - it adds one more character, and since I can't "view" it there I don't know what it adds! when i copy and paste it from the saved logons page, it works - but the "automatic" entry onto the bank's sign-in page is not correct, and I can see it has one too many characters there.

Fonts on Various Sites Are Too Heavy/Bold

I've tried to search and found some other posts about this, but not a ton... leading me to believe there is something wrong.

Issue: Fonts on some sites are too heavy/bold (vs appearing correctly on Chrome/Chromium browsers) Environment: Windows 10 or 11, Firefox stable (currently 105.0.1) Example site: https://www.subaruoutback.org (this is not the only one, just an example) Workaround(s): I can do one of two things... I can either enforce browser fonts globally, which fixes the issue but then also break some sites in other ways or I can use an add-on to let me selectively enforce browser fonts as needed (which is what I am doing).

Screenshots attached, this is my experience on multiple PCs (Windows 10 and 11). One image is from Firefox, one is from Chrome.

On some sites, it isn't a huge deal... maybe just looks bad but is functionally fine. On some sites the issue is more impactful and actually creates readability issues.

Of course I can continue to work around the issue, but ideally I would like to fix it.

I did read that there are some changes site owners can make for font handling, but obviously requesting that sort of thing isn't realistic in a general sense.

Thank you!

Firefox has been my default browser since maybe version 10. Recently I cannot sign in to a frequently used site. It is https://www.kroger.com/signin?redirectUrl=/rx/dashboard . I get the message "We're sorry, an unexpected error occurred. Please try signing in again." I can sign in on Edge and Chrome, both of which I hate. I suspect it has to do with privacy but can't pin down what.

Hello everyone

my default browser is Firefox. The service desk application will not open in Firefox only this type of email won't open (see Screenshot). When I receive emails and try to open them, it only displays a blank page and loads without success.

I always need to copy the link manually and open it in chrome.

What we did:

We tried several things such as

Deleting Firefox history, cache, cookies, etc. However, when doing this, the link works the first time but the following tries don't work, it just keeps loading infinitely (same behavior in a Private Window). Disabling all add-ons.

We have observed that the same links work as expected in Chrome and this behavior happens only with the links related to the customer issue view, other Jira links work normally.

I'm using the latest Firefox version such as Microsoft® Outlook® for Microsoft 365 MSO (Version 2207 Build 16.0.15427.20248) 64-bit

I logged in to Firefox on my new computer and I know I had everything accept credit cards checked off to sync and have been logged in. I double checked everything and made sure to sync just in case. After logging in to Firefox on my new computer, it still shows everything that i had checked off to sync but it's not syncing anything and looks like a fresh install of Firefox with no account, even though I'm logged in and have synced. What am i doing wrong? I consider myself to be pretty competent when it comes to this stuff and I don't see what is wrong.

I love Firefox and usually work with a well organized set of about 40 tabs that are pinned for easy access. Occasionally i will open a page in "new window" so that I can make better use of multiple screens. If I inadvertently or quickly close the window with all my pinned tabs first, and then close the singular "new" window, all my tabs are gone. and of course the open previous or recently closed window only opens the on with no tabs. Is it possible to save the all tabs, or a "master" or "default" window?

Hi, I had to recover my computer so I was re-downloading firefox and it looked as though I was missing some bookmarks so I clicked import -> restore and restored from today, only now I only have 11 bookmarks left out of thousands and I can't figure out how or where to restore them. I don't have any backup info on this computer since I had to wipe it completely but now it seems as though whatever sync I used has been overwritten or disrupted. My bookmarks are really important to me and I really need them back, is there anything I can do to restore them?
