Irony of ironies. I had to create a new account (long, involved, esoteric route) to ask a question, and I could not use my username, because it already was taken (presumably by me ;)) I now have a new Mozilla support account, and the old one with the obsolete e-mail address presumably will sit there waiting for me until some auto-cleaning process eventually eliminates it for inactivity.

I've been using Firefox for a long time now and have never seen an issue like this before. http://prntscr.com/cac6o5 this is a picture from this web page http://www.ghacks.net/2016/06/07/firefox-47/ - Most pages seem to be squishing the fonts. I'm not sure what's going on, it just started doing this recently out of the blue. I'm not sure what else to say about the issue.

I'm using a fairly old version of Firefox, version 34.0.

If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it!

Some abusive Google AdWords ads exploit the input tag's autofocus attribute to override links to internal anchors deep in the page.

When I follow a link such as: http://www.example.com/page.html#paragraph5

This should set the top of the page as the internal link with name (HTML4 or less) or id (HTML5) "paragraph5". This has been the case pretty much since the invention of HTML.

Unfortunately, HTML5 introduced the attribute "autofocus" to the input tag. Some abusive advertisers have noticed that they can exploit this to override the behavior of the actual website, and scroll the page to focus on the advertisement instead of the site's content.

Here is an example of an obnoxious, abusive AdWord advertisement from Adobe: https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/richmedia/studio/pv2/40930760/20160126194122120/AdobeStock728x90.html?e=69&renderingType=2&leftOffset=0&topOffset=0&c=8dPnUcilTf&t=1

Google AdWords is not going to police this abusive behavior. Google likes it when people view its advertisements instead of actual site content.

It is possible for the owner of a website to individually ban certain advertisements from his website. However, there is no way for an individual who does not own a website to ban certain Google AdWords advertisements from a website he frequents.

I find the "autofocus" attribute to be completely useless for normal browsing and highly obnoxious when misused by abusive advertisers. It is very likely that more and more advertisers will use this trick to break websites. Therefore, I would like a way to completely disable / ignore the "autofocus" attribute within Firefox.

How can I do this? Is there a configuration I can change? Is there an Add-On I can install?
