I have been using Firefox for years and have always used Gmail as my default email account. Suddenly I can no longer open a mailto link - just on one of my several PCs. I go to settings and there is no option for Gmail or anything else. I tried copying the link from one of my other computers but there is nowhere to Paste that. Weird...

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

I just tried to open a new window using File, New Window. It is GONE. I always use that. Now all I get are New Tab New Container Tab (grayed out so I can't select that) New Private window, some other stuff.

The same is true if I right click. I get: Open Link in New Tab Open Link in New Private window.

What did I do to cause these changes?

In the past (loooong time ago) I used an extension to password protect my browser, had multiple profiles and for each you could only enter with a password, since that is no longer avaiable we still have the "Master Password" that would be great too if there wasn't the "cancel" option, you see, when the prompt appears you can't click anywhere else, tabs, bookmarks, nothing, so if there was a way to remove the "Cancel" option from the prompt that would be a great measure for security, is there any way to remove it from the code or something?

When using firefox 102.01 20220705093820 on facebook in the new feed suddenly it starts to scroll trough the feed without control. I can't stop it scrolling at that time.

I also can't watch some videos in facebook. It says this video can't be played now.

This happens on several computers I have, and it doesn't happen if I use chrome.

I've tried googling around and haven't found any solutions although I've seen this question asked multiple times.

When I start typing words into my Firefox address bar I usually see some suggestions. I'd like to delete *specific* suggestions from there. When I'm sharing my screen I don't need my business contacts seeing certain embarrassing search terms. How do I do this?

To be clear, I don't want to turn off *all* suggestions. I don't want to delete my history. I don't want any of that. I just want to delete specific ones. In Chrome when this happens I simply hover over the specific suggestion and click X. It baffles me why Firefox didn't make it that simple as well.

The New York Times is only partially loading with white space on the bottom. The same with article links. The ad blocker is off. I deleted the cookies. This just started happening a few days ago. Can go back from article to home page either. Other sites are working. NY Times works on Chrome.

FF Slides Windows Taskbar On Open, Issue Reopening Last Session

I was having an issue where FF wouldn't restore my tabs on start. "Recently closed tabs" wasn't available, and when choosing "recently closed windows," 2 - 4 new windows would open, along with one which had the previous session tabs.

I noticed in the task manager that FF wasn't actually closing, so I started using "exit" in the FF menu. Now, even after a computer reboot, when I start FF I see a number of windows open and close quickly, along with a identical "copy" of my windows taskbar sliding in from the left to the right, and "replacing" the current one. I had to record my screen to be sure that's what I was seeing. After the "extra" windows flash open and closed, the FF window with the previous session tabs "slides in" with the "new" windows taskbar.

This does not seem normal to me, as my Windows taskbar has never move before unless I moved it. I'd also like to be able close FF without exiting through the menu, or having to reopen and close several windows if I forget to. This behavior is the same in when I start in safe mode as well. I've never synced FF, or signed for that, and I ran malwarebytes and gotten nothing. Is something wrong here?

I've never synced FF, or even signed ti gor that, and I ran malwarebytes and goettn nothing.

My browser is set to auto update, but in June I was notified that the auto update failed and I must do it manually. I did so immediately and installed the update. Since then, the settings is showing that firefox is up to date. However, everytime I open the browser I get the same notification for manual update and even if I download and install the update, the notification repeats the next time I open the browser. The settings continues to show that firefox is up to date.

Since updating to the latest Firefox (102.0.1 ) I am no longer able to download any attachments from my email account when I use Firefox. I have to go to Safari and open my email there and download my attachments there. Or I have to forward the email to a different email account, not through a browser (to my IMac Mail account) to download the attachments.

If a solution cannot be found for this, I will have to discontinue using Firefox.

Thank you for your help.

I do freelance work for a nonprofit that uses Constant Contact for its bulk fundraising emails. I've been doing this for at least 3 years using Firefox, but suddenly, something weird is happening: in any text block I insert, all the words run together as if I'm not hitting the spacebar. I'm communicating regularly with Constant Contact support, and they've even escalated the issue...but nothing seems to work. (It often looks fine on their end, but not on mine.) Unfortunately this ONLY happens with Firefox; using Edge and Chrome, the words come out fine. CC is still trying to solve the problem, but thought I'd bring it here to see if anyone else has any ideas.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a problem with text every time I open browser the type is illegible (see attached) almost looks like it's in a different language. I clear the cache and or refresh Firefox but it only lasts for the one session that I use the browser and when I open the browser to use it again type goes back to being illegible. How can I fix it so type is always legible? Thanks
