When using private browsing window, bookmarks toolbar keeps disappearing every time I open a new tab or anything else. My setting for show bookmarks is "always show" and it works normally in a regular window. It also used to work normally in private browsing until a few days ago. Clicking "show bookmarks toolbar" works until I open any of the bookmarks, then the toolbar disappears again. How do I make the toolbar permanently visible in a private browsing window?

In the last week or so, iPlayer, All4, and Spotify (that I know of) have stopped working in the Firefox browser. All4's error suggests DRM isn't enabled, the others just say try again. Roll20 hasn't been working for even longer (more like months). They work in Microsoft Edge and Chrome. Youtube is still working, as are video players in social media.

I have tried the following solutions:

  • Firefox is up to date
  • Windows is up to date
  • Updated graphics drivers
  • 'Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.' is set to 'Always Activated' and is up to date
  • 'Play DRM-controlled' content is ticked in about:preferences
  • Checked if anything changed if either of the above were turned off (it did not)
  • media.eme.enabled is set to true in about:config
  • Put Firefox in troubleshooting mode
  • Turned off my addons (including uBlock Origin) manually
  • Tried in a Private Browsing window
  • Turned off Tracking Protection
  • Restarted my laptop

Nothing has fixed the problem, or given me any more indication of what is wrong. I don't know how to a) fix or b) find the problem. All I can think is that it may be related to the recent changes to Chromium regarding ad-blockers? But no one else seems to be having the same problem so I doubt it.

I am experiencing issues with my ChatGPT subscription while using it on the Firefox browser. Despite having an active subscription with access to ChatGPT-4, the interface only shows an 'Upgrade' option instead of the 'Refer a Friend' feature, which suggests that my subscription isn't being recognized properly. Additionally, whenever I try to send a message in the chat, I receive an error stating, 'Our systems have detected unusual activity from your system. Please try again later.' I haven't encountered these issues on other browsers. Could you please provide assistance or guidance on how to resolve these problems with Firefox?"

I have tried to clear the cache, and relogin, does not work...

I am wondering if this is an issue of Firefox or ChatGPT, any resolution on this?

Repeating "Welcome back" popup when starting Firefox

I have just upgraded to Firefox version 123. Now whenever I start Firefox on any of my profiles, it will immediately or almost immediately display a "Welcome back" popup stating that "Here’s a quick reminder that you can keep your favorite indie browser just one click away." and provides a button to make the browser the default one. That's exceedingly annoying - I can understand that Firefox wants to notify my once in a while, but this happens at least once a day, probably more often than that. I looked over the source code and got that it is a "spotlight" feature, but I failed to find any settings that would turn it off. Any idea how can I disable this forever?

My browser could only display the standard system fonts (such as Microsoft YaHei and Consolas), but not the fonts I installed. I was getting 'Request for font "xxx" blocked at visibility level 2 (requires 3)' from the console on every website that tried to use my local fonts.

The problem appeared in obstacle removal mode, but didn't appear in the latest stable Firefox release.

Version: nightly 120.0a1(20231006152733) System: Windows 11 22H2 22621.2134

English is not my first language, so please forgive me if it doesn't make sense.

I don't think this is a Firefox issue as much as it is a Windows 11. I constantly use the additional profiles feature with "firefox.exe --profilemanager" in Run. The problem is, it used to be memorized in the Run window but since i downloaded W11, it's now blank. Is there anyway to fix this so i don't have to type it in each time?

I cannot say if the last update was the change. I did not have the issue of bookmarked sites and when I log in, no user name or password is provided, as what happens now. Those bookmarks' login information IS still in my Firefox's about:logins, but now they are not being automatically presented. Even after finding the login credentials, logging in & out, returning to sign-in, the credentials just used are not recalled for use again.

That was not always the case and I would like to know if there's a 'setting' now that needs to be 'toggled' so 'Manage Logins' will work as it was did.

I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

FF 98.0.2 - just updated. Top five lines of FF are TINY - using the ZOOM function only enlarges the body of the webpage, not the top five lines, FF logo, menu bar,’ Bookmarks Toolbar, etc. All previous suggestions have been to use Zoom control or to adjust size in about:config. That is ignoring the problem. Some answers claim the problem is in system settings. However, this is a brand new out of the box computer, when I use the Microsoft Edge installed on it, the corresponding lines of that browser are functional, not microscopic, so I KNOW MOZILLA CAN DO BETTER. PLEASE DO!!! I'm not the only person going blind and crazy trying to read the top five lines and getting bad suggestions (though thank you all for trying.) I have another computer running FF 93.0 and I'm not updating that one until the latest version is fixed. Please see two pix taken at 240% zoom, both screen resolutions the same, 1366x768. It is clearly seen that the test on ver 93.0 is larger than on 98.0.2. And just for giggles, a shot of MS Edge...look at the size of the top lines. (I've done a ton of troubleshooting in my career. Something's not right.)
