The Historic Houses Association (www.historichouses.org) site has an option to show a map of interesting places. When I view this map in Firefox on Android or Windows 11, the icons show up correctly. For instance in the example map, next to Lincoln. In Android/Windows the icon shows a small castle in a drop pin while here in a Linux desktop it just shows a cross hatched box. The link to the web page still works. The roads in the Android/Windows versions correctly show A1, A46 etc. But here in Linux, you can just make out the road numbers behind the vertical hatching. Over a long period I have seen this has occur on a number of sites but I think that the maps are probably (cannot prove it) Mapbox/OpenStreetMap. But when I look at OpenStreeMap it self, the Road Numbers are fine and when I add a layer involving tags, they show as normal.

I know I could address this inquiry HHA but they will simply say 'they do not support Linux'. The site works in other environments so why not Linux? Also, as I have said, it has occurred on other sites in the past (though I must admit I cannot remember which ones and when - I tried a few while writing this support request) Is it likely that the web pages are being downloaded with a catalogue of Icons but this fails in the Linux version of Firefox? Would this account for the road numbers being corrupted as well?

The PC is running a fairly new (last 10 days) installation of Linux Manjaro with Mate desktop. However, this has been happening for some time (a couple of years) during which time, I have used Linux Mint, Debian and Manjaro, with Mate and Gnome desktops. Firefox is used as provided by Linux Manjaro, including Noscript and Adblocker - I have tried viewing this page with both disabled. The only changes I have made to Firefox settings is to enable 'when you open a link .... switch to it immediately', 'search for text when you start typing' and set 'browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab' to false.

I have put up with the problem because it only affects me, however I am about to load Linux Manjaro on to computers for other less computer literate/tolerant people who will be using similar maps. It would help them if I could get a fix.

Thanks for your time

FFox 101.0.1 (64-bit) running in Linux Mint 20.3

Just installed the latest Mint (clean install) and the latest FFox.

FFox tabs are arranged along the bottom of the window! Tabs only appear below the bookmarks panel on the left. On the right, the browser panel is atop the tabs, so the tabs can't be seen. New tabs can't be seen. There appears to be no setting to control top/bottom tab placement -- of course, I want tabs across the top and visible, please. Help!

Also, above "Preferences" > "General" (about:preferences#general), there's an info box that says "Your browser is being managed by your organization". Help!


Regards, Mark.

I'm about to lose my mind on this. I have searched long and short where this would be hidden at in the settings and I can't find it. Anything I search for just gives me basic troubleshooting for autocomplete in the search bar.

First, Firefox has 2 twitter logins successfully stored in the password vault. When I go to Twitter the only suggestion for the login is "tulsa" and I have no idea where it's getting this. It will not auto fill in either of the 2 stored emails, not even if you begin typing them. I have to type them in manually and then when I submit it, the password is automatically typed into the next page.

Highlighting "tulsa" and not clicking or hitting enter and using the delete key does nothing.

This is really, really driving me nuts. Please help me.

Hi!

I have Firefox 101.0.1 on Windows 10. When I run firefox normally then everything works fine. When I start another firefox with firefox -P and then selec another profile for another instance then my monitors start to flash black. When I close the other instance then it goes away again.

I tried to update my Intel UHD 630 graphics driver from device manager but it already says I have latest driver.

When I ignore that flashing for too long time I will eventually get BSOD. The driver that causes BSOD seems to be igdkmd64.sys.

What is interesting is that it only happens when I run multiple profiles of FF and once with -P option. With single profile at time I can play multiple videos at once and have multiple large images and other stuff open on tabs that put load on system and nothing happens. Even opening multiple windows within same profile with Ctrl + N doesn't cause any problems. But as soon as I load 2 profiles at the same time I get this problem. Any ideas?

I have a spare computer I don't use frequently, but which has a synced Firefox installation on it.

I am concerned that as I add and remove bookmarks, it will get further behind and, when it is reconnected, will cause deleted bookmarks to reappear or new bookmarks to disappear. Alternately I'm concerned that the change queue might exceed some size and cause sync to generally fail across my devices. My tablet got "stuck in the past" once and couldn't send or receive new bookmarks despite Sync seemingly working and connected, so I'm worried that perhaps that's what happened already.

On the other hand, if I were to remove that device from Sync, what happens if I were to add it back to Sync?

...If I deleted its bookmarks during or after disconnecting it? I feel like this might cause the bookmarks on my other devices to get deleted too.

...If I don't delete its bookmarks? I feel like this might cause any bookmarks I deleted in the interim to reappear.

Also, is there a maximum size to Sync? I have several thousand bookmarks.

This happens on only one site that I know of - the online WSOP poker site. Once having signed in and selected a table the next screen is comprised of two parts; the interactive gaming table on top , with commentary and other info below. I have used Firefox exclusively and this poker site for several years. Suddenly, I assume after a recent Firefox update, Firefox is displaying only the bottom portion. Suspecting perhaps the site software, or a problem with my system I installed Edge and Chrome to investigate. Both rendered the screen correctly. Any thoughts?

I have a habit of keeping a number of pages open to return to under iPhone iOS Firefox. I also generally keep one “current” page open, usually a DuckDuckGo search page, when I close the app, expecting it to come up again immediately when I reopen it. For the past couple of weeks however, reopening Firefox blasts me about 10 miles up into one of my “saved” pages, instead of my “current” one. Why? Why won’t Firefox remember my current page after years of doing so just fine?
