Hello all, I am new here, but I am using FF from 2006 to still now. I started POD a month ago. When I upload my artwork (300 to 600dpi file) I got very bad results with images. I changed the resolution again and again, disable/ remove all extensions every time i got bad results. Today I tried with google chrome ....... results was extremely good. what is wrong with Firefox? how can i fix that? Thanks

Can't figure this out, but certain UI elements on websites just disappear, they briefly reappear when my mouse cursor hovers over them.

The most obvious and noticeable place I see this is on the new tab page, where the shortcuts icon to my saved pages used to appear as letters representing the website. (For Example, the shortcut to Google drive was the Letter G)

Now, these letters are missing and briefly appear as my mouse hovers near them.

This happens to all kinds of UI elements on nearly every website.

I use Firefox as my main browser but, in Gmail it always defaults to English US although I change it to English UK. I use this because of spell check in Australian English I have checked Gmail settings and Google settings. All are English UK. If I use Chrome, I always get English UK when I open Gmail.com. Why can't I change to UK in Gmail when using Firefox?

The documentation says to use F11. F11 was removed from ChromeOS. The Full Screen Button on the keyboard will take Firefox out of full screen, but when you try to use it to put Firefox in Full Screen, the window gets slightly larger, and then goes back to its original size.

Other applications seem to be able to go to full screen using the Full Screen key that are running under Linux. For instance, gvim, thunar, meld, and gnucash all will go into full screen with the Full Screen Key.

ATTENTION: All Firefox Employees/Volunteers/Big Shots/ Anyone who knows what they are doing!

I can see why so many of your clients are leaving FF and you're begging for donations. I will be the next one if someone doesn't help me. AND DO NO respond to me with your computer IT LINGO. I am NOT AN IT person, I don't understand most of your ever-so-helpful (NOT) articles. Speak to me as though I know NOTHING about computers, even though I have used them for 40 years. MOZILLA you need to learn then teach your volunteers how to access my computer walk me through all of the problems I continue to have. I DID DOWNLOAD the latest v. 95, however, yesterday I downloaded a file and suddenly my OLD FF PAGE showed up and that is where the download went. HOW does that happen? Trying to get help is another anxiety-ridden experience. This is the 3rd page I've been on to get SOMEONE'S ATTENTION! I, personally, haven't found FireFox to be user-friendly as so many others seem to feel. AND, if you start using BING, I will be gone, NO if, ands, or buts. Bing is a piece of crap! I've tried numerous times to get it off MS Edge only for it to appear again. MS may think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it isn't, even their format is UGLY!

I thought I finally got the hang of TABS...open tab, select website or whatever you want to open, then you don't lose all the other TABS that are open. HOWEVER, when one is moving along at lightning speed and happens to forget to open a TAB, that's when I want to SCREAM at the top of my lungs because now the other tab I opened is GONE! I'm sure I must be doing something WRONG, NO DOUBT, then teach me how to do it RIGHT!

NO MORE WRITTEN ARTICLES, THEY ARE A WASTE OF MY TIME! You may think you've written them in the clearest possible way, but you HAVEN'T. Again, if your audience is for IT people then MAYBE, just maybe they might understand what you've written, but I DO NOT!

That is the SINGLE MOST ANNOYING habit that every company has. SPEAKING IN COMPUTEREZE. I have worked in the medical field for many years, and the medical field has it's own terminology, words, diagnoses, codes, etc. and if I were to somehow use these words when messaging you, you would be CLUELESS! AND you wouldn't even bother to figure out what I'm asking or how to respond. Specific fields in this country have their own language. My husband worked in Aerospace for years and when he would describe to me what he was working on, it was Greek to me. The list goes on and on.

WELL, that's what you do now! You can pat yourselves on the back for all of your brilliant directional articles, but many of us out here in the real world are not patting you on the back.

Get your stuff together, take this email seriously, and perhaps you won't keep losing customers.

YOU NEED A SPECIFIC LOG-IN PAGE. When I open Firefox and go to the 3 bars I HAVE TO THINK I AM LOGGED IN. There is my Email address and if I click on that account I have many options. Two of which are manage account with my email address again, and SIGN OUT. I have to be signed in to sign OUT, right? AND if I have the correct version there should be NO REASON to EVER SEE my OLD FF home page, RIGHT? Then, why do I? It is great that you are trying to make your browser the safest browser on the market, but if people CAN NOT get legitimate answers in language understood by ALL, no computereze, then WHAT IS THE POINT?

And so much for the SCREENSHOT link. How does that work. I have the link on my Toolbar and it states, "Take a Screenshot" and that's what I did, because I wanted to show you some pages. BUT where did the screenshot go??? I looked through BROWSE, couldn't find it there in my files.

DO NOT make educated guesses, because that is what you do now. GUESS!! I guarantee that your educated guesses are WRONG!

Most Sincerely, Rhonda Caywood

It took years to perfect my userchrome to make FF look exactly how I want. Once 91+ came out it wasn't even a question of fixing the floating tabs and condensing the height and menu spacing (though I tried all of it) but my own codes stopped working properly - I had code to set the background colour of menus/bookmark menus and when I upgrade they were the right colour but with thick white borders around them. This was more important to me than the floating tabs and I immediately downgraded to 90 where I've stayed. Can anyone help me figure out how to get MY codes to work with 91+ and/or to work together with the other fixes out there (tabs, condensed menus etc)??

Below is how my userchrome looks and attached is how my current set up looks. ANY advice is appreciated. THANK YOU.

I use ios ipad and iphone. I have an issue when I type in the search/website bar. The issue is as follows. I have a few letters set up for text replacement. Such as when I type “n” it offers “and” or “u” it offers “you”. When I type those letters in the search bar, it automatically turns them to and or you instead of letting me type the word I meant like “nine”. So example, I want to type “nine” which comes out as “andine”. Another example is typing “uniform” which comes out as “youniform”. Can you help correct this glitch on ios.

Yes, I know this is a Sanboxie issue and I wanted to ask Sandboxie support or in forums but, well, there isn't really any support or active forums. Any Firefox users have a suggestion?

Specifically, how would issues with IcmpCreateFile or 'iphlpapi.dll' effect Firefox? A fix would be even better!  :D

Sandboxie is generating the following errors when running Firefox in a sandbox on multiple computers. SBIE2303 Could not hook IcmpCreateFile (33, 1655) SBIE2318 DLL initialization failed for 'iphlpapi.dll'

No specific or severe issues are being detected but, after reading the descriptions of SBIE2303 and SBIE2318. The explanation of SBIE2318 for IP controls seems at least somewhat serious.

I am using a newish FF profile for my usual web browsing and I also have another FF profile (from an older computer) which I only use for one purpose and that is to look at my recently deceased partner's facebook (FB).

My issue is, I accidentally deleted my partner's FB account from the FB log on page and now have no access to that account. I was hoping by restoring my "other" FF profile I could restore access via cookies etc.

Is there any way i can do this??

I run Thunderbird on an email-only system which I can access from LAN or remotely.. I "ssh -X" to that system and run Thunderbird, which displays on my workstation. Until an update a few days ago, when I clicked on an http/https link in Thunderbird, if there was an instance of Firefox running on my workstation, the link would open in a new tab on the most recently accessed Firefox window. If there was no instance of Firefox running on the workstation, then Firefox would be started on the email-only system, which would display on my workstation. After the recent update, the behavior has changed: clicking on a link always opens Firefox on the email-only system, not a new tab on the workstation.

Running Thunderbird 78.14.0 on Centos 7.9 email system, Firefox 94.0 on Fedora 33 workstation.

Any suggestions on how to have the previous behavior?
