I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit)

I just installed it on a new laptop. It was working fine.

I then changed to the profile from my old laptop. It works fine but many images now have glitter; not all over, but as if the image creator has pained this on in odd areas. For example a winter scene has a landscape of a man climbing a mountain and the man is covered by glitter.

I can't work out why this has started happening or how to prevent it. It's intrusive and hurts my eyes.

Looking for any help or advice,

I only use 2 addons in firefox, they are Bitdefender Wallet and Adblock and since the last Firefox update I cannot get either working. I can install adblock, it will work until the browser is closed, next time I open the browser it will be disabled with no option to re enable it and no explanation as to why it was disabled. I have tried a few addons as a test and after the browser is closed all will be automatically disabled. With Bitdefender wallet trying to install the extension results in an error of the download is corrupt.

I have used Firefox for years with both of these options and no errors. To try and fix I have reinstalled both Firefox and Bitdefender but the issue remains the same.

Current Firefox build is at 84.0.2

Any advise would be brilliant as I really do not want to resort to Chrome (which is working perfectly).

Many thanks.

Mozilla-provided font (I think) is just annoying/hard to read

I've read some complaints about the font that FF desktop uses on some websites. I'm seeing a very annoying font with some letters thicker (almost bold) and other letters thin. This occurs, for example, on the mozilla.org website and when FF is displaying a PDF.

I have "allow pages to choose their own fonts" checked, and I am not using hardware acceleration.

I went into the developer console and turned off the Mozilla-supplied font for a support webpage, and it then used something like a Times New Roman, but it was uniform in letter thickness.

I have attached screen snips.

If I display the same page using Chrome, the font looks great, so I don't know exactly what the problem is, but it's clearly a FF problem.

Notice in Chrome that the word "garbled" is in bold, and it does not appear in bold in either of the FF font examples.

When I highlight specific text in the pdf viewer in Firefox for Windows and copy it the wrong part gets copied instead of the highlighted text. I copy the text 2 lines under the highlight. I have the problem only with specific pdf, for example with an ISO from breuth. When I use Adobe Acrobat, I don't have the problem. Maybe it is a software bug?

Can anyone tell me, or teach me how to tell, what's happening on the website 'http://www.syscodiscountfoodcenter.com' on the "Products" button? Whenever I click on it, the address bar just becomes 'http://www.syscodiscountfoodcenter.com/#' but nothing happens. I suspect that this is being blocked by some type of security or protection blocker, but I don't know how to determine what.

Ultimately, what I'd like to do is determine exactly what protection is being violated, then turn off this specific protection for just this website, so that I could order products. Can anyone show me a link or page that would describe how to determine what's happening?

Thank you for your help and advice.

I let Firefox store my logins so I don't have to hunt no matter which computer I'm using. Lately, Firefox has decided to show logins that don't exist or haven't been used in decades (yes, DECADES). I ran CTRL-SHIFT- DEL, shut down and and restarted FF and rebooting. The fool things still show. What gives? How can these unneeded items be permanently removed? Thank you.

Recently, I downloaded a userChrome file to make Firefox resemble an old version of Google Chrome. Everything looks pretty good so far, except for one issue: part of the first/leftmost tab always gets cut off, as you can see in the first attached image.

What I want to do is add a small amount of blank space or padding to the left of the first tab so that the full tab is visible, sort of like what I have in the second image (I took that image by dragging the tab manually, which I obviously can't do while browsing).

I also want to shift the rest of the tabs to the right by the same margin, so that I don't mess up the overlap pattern. How do I do this?

For reference, I'm running Firefox 84.0.2 (I just changed the browser icons and website favicons with resource hacker). If you want, you can download my userChrome file here: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=05793638977830057143.
