Ever since the last update the browser's font has been garbled (tabs, address bar, settings page, etc). Some websites show this problem too.

I tried downgrading back to 119 and it displays fine. I was force updated back to 121 and it's broken again.

With the latest update domain guessing is no longer working. I like just typing the name of the website and having Firefox add the prefix (https) and suffix (.com, org, etc. so I can move aorund the web just a little faster. The setting I used to turn it on is no longer in the about:config menu. Is there a way to get this back? For example, I was able to type in Amazon and the amazon.com website would automatically open in the tab. Now I get this

Firefox Unable to Update Automatically

About a week ago I started getting these update error messages stating "Update available - Firefox couldn't update automatically. Download the new version". I've also tried clicking "Learn more" on the error message but it's a dead link. Going into the settings for updates I am set to auto update, but when I manually check for updates it says "Failed to check for updates".

The help article on this issue simply tells you to download and manually reinstall Firefox, but I'm having to do this nearly every day. I work in IT myself so I know a "bandaid" workaround when I see one. Is there a solution to this issue?

Is there some way to enable and disable specific config settings , on a per-site basis?

For example, let's say I want to disable right-click hijacking (dom.event.contextmenu.enabled) on turtlesaregreat.com, but use the default settings everywhere else.

The Page Info > Permissions panel has some, but not all the ones I want. Is this somehow built into Firefox, or maybe there's an extension?

Thanks.

Firefox has always maintained that current tabs will be restored after a reboot of the browser, and indeed that was the case for the first half-dozen years I've been a subscriber. That has not been the case for the past 4 - 6 months however. I have the correct Settings for this, so it is not on my end. Why do I always get a fresh Firefox browser whenever I update the version (which is quite regular lately . . . maybe a new version of Firefox every 3 weeks). Please help.

Hi. I keep several Firefox tabs open and active on my laptop. Inevitably, Firefox slows down after a week or several weeks and would benefit from a Quit / Restart. But then (I think) I would lose my tabs, which would mean a trip to the library to login and get them back. If I do nothing, a superslow Firefox will usually mean my laptop eventually restarts on its own. Then when I open Firefox I see a "Restore Session" option, which brings everything back (I think I see Restore Session because the computer did its own shutdown). So, this does work, but I have a slow computer until the laptop does its own restart. I am wondering if I can initiate my own Firefox Quit / Restart which will give me the "Restore Session" option. Thanks!

Hello,

I want Firefox to open PDFs in browser. I have opt in for two options from setting both are not working.

1. I have choose always ask where to save files and that is not working because it is always saving files in downloads. 2. I have choose Firefox option from save or open files to open files and not save files; it did not work (Firefox downloaded the files not opened it). Then I tried always ask, from always ask menu then I choose open with Firefox and it opened in Firefox but it saved the file.

Please let me know how can this issue be resolved. I do not want to download files and when I do want to download, I want to choose a specific location for each file. I am trying a transition to Firefox from chrome. So, I am very new to these settings.

I have attached a picture of setting in this request.

Thank you for your help! Dilpreet
