Greetings all, Is there a way to change the margins of viewed markdown files by going into, for example, about:config or another way? Would this or some other commands allow me to change the left and right margins?

I would like to change (widen primarily) the margins of markdown files when I view them on my Firefox browser. I use a lot of Markdown, for writing, scientific work (RMarkdown), and note-taking. I am currently using a Markdown text editor (Abricotine, not that this should matter) that simply calls up Firefox and sends the text/markdown to the screen. However, when I view the .md files the margins seem very small to me.

Cheers,

Firefox is crashing almost immediately after loading a page. Sometimes it crashes while loading the page, sometimes I can scroll down or click a link, and then it crashes. Biggest issues are on Reddit. I'm able to browse the Firefox support pages with minimal issues (although it has crashed once or twice).

Crash happens in Safe Mode. (I'm in safe mode right now and it just crashed) I did a FULL clean install about a week ago. (actually did it twice just to be sure)

Not sure what info you need in order to help, but here is some of the crash report from the latest one today.

Is there any way I could find what program is causing this to happen?

I have configured FF to block all cookies under "Browser Privacy" the custom setting allows "Choose which trackers and scripts to block. and I selected "all cookies". Knowing that all cookies will be blocked I logged into office 365 and allowed manually cookies through "view page info" I then selected "set cookies" to allow expecting full access to office 365 mail, but this did not occur. What happened is I logged into office 365 and could see the icons and my login name but could not read the mail.

Office 365 gave the message "we couldn't sign you in please try again" yet I could see my log in name and the office 365 icons for mail, calendar etc.. just not the actual data. If I allow cookies in Browser privacy (which i take it allows cookies always) it woks.

I bring this up because it seems like something is missing in cookies that is not represented in FF.What is the difference between browser privacy cookies and allowing it through view page permissions? Can anyone offer an explanation?

Hello,

I am using Firefox 85.0 on OSX 10.14.6. Both Firefox Dev Tools and OSX are set to Dark Mode. However the menubar on the Developer Tools pop-out window (separate window view) is showing light grey. Please see attached image which shows the menu bar colour.

Is there any way I can change this to match the dark theme of my system?

This may seem petty, but I use the pop-out console a lot in my workflow and the bright coloured bar is bothering me! I have just switched over from Chrome which correctly matches the menubar to the system theme.

Thanks for your help.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox (85.0 64bit) on Windows 10.

Perhaps I could get help here.

I can't login in either https://www.icloud.com/ or https://tv.apple.com/

Screenshots of the problem are attached here. In both websites I see the circle as it is trying to load (on icloud, eventually, get an error "iCloud encountered an error while trying to connect to the server"). I've tried to use these websites with Chrome and Edge and it works normally.

Solutions I've tried but did not work: - cleaned cache and history; - turned off firefox protections against monitoring; - turned off uBlock Origin (it's the only plugin installed besides DuckDuckGo) - tried in private window, does not work as well

Is this a known bug or/and is there any solution? I can try anything you will suggest to me, I really need to open these websites and I do not want to use any other browser besides Firefox.

Recently I logged out from Firefox my account, and when I tried to login it asked me to enter the 6 digit verification code from my authentication application. It looks like this comes from the 2-steps authentication method. I don't remember I used this procedure before, and I don't know what is the authentication app. I have this account since 2014 and now I am not able to login to it. Is there is any way to reset the sitting through email? Please help. Note: I created another account in order to be able to ask this question.

Hi,

I have a big issue with Firefox crashing my computer, every day. I have many tabs open but this problem started occuring just a few days ago. Would really appreciate any clues on what could be causing this.

Here are my crash reports:

I have tried disabling webGL, as well as disabling hardware acceleration etc. Also, the crashes usually happen after >1h of usage. I have 32gb of RAM and lots of charts open in my tabs, so not sure if its a memory or graphics issue.

Thanks in advance!

After update to firefox 80 sometimes random pages do not load. They open as blank white page with refresh button being inactive. Only way to solve this problem is close page, open new tab and try to load this page again.

This is completely random, happening on all sites, opened from links on other sites, bookmarks or speed dial. No idea what could cause it. Maybe firefox has some problems with creating new process for new tab if my process limit is set to 1?

Hi Folks,

I've recently started working with a Mac (Catalina) and found an oddity that only seems to apply to Firefox. I set up keyboard shortcuts for moving windows between my macbook display and an external monitor using the in-built keyboard options to add shortcuts.

These target the Window>Move to [DISPLAY NAME] menu entries at the top of the screen. For some reason Firefox windows don't have this menu entry and therefore my shortcuts don't move Firefox windows between my screens.

I've included a couple screenshots to demonstrate. It's not a huge deal but I wonder if it's an issue with my machine or just a quirk of Firefox?
