On certain websites I am getting scrambled text, mostly in headings and titles, not so much in body text. I have followed several tips from other posts like mine, i.e., installed Open Sans font, but that did not do it. I turned off hardware acceleration, and cleared the cache. The only thing that did work was to start Firefox in troubleshooting mode. I only have two add-ons running, Short URL and Dashlane, I doubt they're responsible for this. Any other ideas?

In the past, when you opened up private browsing, it seamlessly integrated itself into your browser, being indistinguishable. At a glance, no one would know you were private browsing; it blended in.

In a recent update, Mozilla did something unthinkable and made private browsing an isolated instance from Firefox. This, of course, results in a purple flare in the taskbar in front of the entire world that you are private browsing.

I don't understand who thought this was a good idea. I want to know how to undo this horrible change.

See the screenshot where you can't see any information on all my open Firefox windows, except for my private browsing window.

Unable to view charge station icons or site menu on Chargehub.com

When I load Chargehub.com into Firefox I should be able to see icons for electric vehicle charging stations plus a menu for such things as plug filters.

However, although the chargehub site loads with a Google map (after selecting Map) I don't get the EV charging station icons or menu. I do get POI icons such as for airfields, cemeteries, parks, churches, etc only when fully zoomed in. The Google zoom symbols and street map view options are also available.

I have not experienced this issue on any other WEB site including Plugshare or Chargemap. Further, when I open Google maps in Firefox and do the search, "ev charging stations in ontario canada", i do see the icons for charging stations.

I am running Windows 7 with Firefox version 107.01 on a desktop computer. Adblock and uBlock origin are installed. However I have the same results when running Firefox in safemode.

I do understand that Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7. However, my son is also running Windows 7 on his desktop computer, yet chargehub opens properly on his computer when using Firefox as his browser.

I've tried searching the WEB for an answer but no success so far.

Thank you in advance for any help.

After 107.0.1, the tab bar disappears

In fully updated Windows 10 (x64), running either 64-bit or 32-bit Firefox, the tab bar in the current Release channel of Firefox disappears. No changes have been made … (read more)

In fully updated Windows 10 (x64), running either 64-bit or 32-bit Firefox, the tab bar in the current Release channel of Firefox disappears. No changes have been made to the Firefox profile on my computer, including no edits in CSS, etc. (I never bother with such things). Updating to 108 and higher causes the tab bar to disappear. In 108+, a single tab appears "somewhere" at the bottom of the window (its location appears to be random), and the New Tab button ("+") is gone as well. Disabling all extensions has no effect. Reverting back to 107.0.1 (either 32-bit or 64-bit) fixes the problem. This situation has been tested several times with the same result every time. Consequently, I have edited the Firefox registry policy to disable updating so I can run 107.0.1 without constantly getting the Firefox "nag window." Any thoughts on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

On some sites, I see some of the text replaced with different text. I tried these pages in other browsers at the same time and they display correctly. I tried on a private browser session and it displays the same. I had seen this previously, but it seemed to go away on its own. I was able to get screenprints of this event. If I inspect the fast.com page, I can see what the proper text should be.

These are just annoyances since I can still interact with the page, but just thought to see if I can find a fix.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Image interactibility has changed since the last Firefox update.

It used to be I could do a Google search and I could click on the images on the main search result page (under the 'All' section, not the 'Images' section) and they would open in a new tab immediately.

Since the update when I click on an image it docks the image to the right...when I need it to open in a new tab.

If I can't get this fixed I will be going back to a previous version.

Help!

Firefox is the only application affected (latest 107.0.1, Windows 11 pro latest updates). I have updated all drivers, run system and memory checks, uninstalled deleted remaining files and registry settings, twice actually all to no avail.

I have recently changed ISP but cannot see how that affects just Firefox (Chrome/Opera/Edge all work) and also moved to Bit Defender antivirus. Here I think I saw startup installations in Chrome etc for bit defender but never for Firefox. I have tried turning off all virus web protection still no joy.

I have looked briefly at the crash reports but with my level of expertise I can see no common crash reason.

I have had no add-ins installed for last week while trying to get this to work again. I have used Firefox for years and have no wish to move to another browser but this situation is driving me nuts.

If there is anybody out there with any ideas on next steps I could take?

Cheers Mike
