Hi, after the update to Firefox 103, everything is too big in my Firefox. Looking at the release notes, I realize that this is because Firefox is now responding differently to the "make everything bigger" setting in Windows. I typically have this set to 150 to get everything in Windows set to the appropriate sizes. This was fine with the old Firefox behavior, but now everything in Firefox is too large. Can I revert Firefox to the old font scaling behavior?

 add-on, setting adjustment, or about config switch?

I've downloaded a couple of add-ons this week that did not do what they claim to do, so I wanted to leave reviews so other users won't waste their time. Except when i got to do so, i am surprised to see that therte is no clear way to write a review for an add-on. I am logged into the add-ons page, i can view the previous reviews for the add-on, but nowhere does it inticate how I can leave a review. Google led me to the Mozilla add-ons wiki which states "You can complete most of the review using the reviewer tools at addons.mozilla.org" except there is no indication to where one can locate these "reviewer tools." Seems a bit funny to me that Mozilla would choose to hide the functionality and make it so difficult to use.

Any help is appreciated.

Without my doing anything, firefox has decided to download pdf files in its own html. I have changed the default to adobe rather than ask. When I open the downloaded file in adobe it comes down as an adobe file, I tell it to save as an adobe pdf, but it appears in file manager and then opens in firefox html. Worse, it, whatever it is, has gone into file manager and changed adobe pdf files, some of which have been sitting on my hard drive for some years, into firefox html files. How do I rectify this please?

Hi! There are multiple recent threads on this issue, and not one of them has a solution, so I'm asking again. I want to increase the font size of the top header text, specifically the bookmarks toolbar, search bar, and tab titles. The text is too small for me to read. It would also be useful if I could increase the font size for the applications menu (the hamburger drop down menu in the far right of the header).

I do not want to increase the size of anything else, so changing layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is not the solution. I have changed my global zoom settings, and set them specifically to "Zoom text only", but this setting does not effect the bookmarks toolbar or the search bar. Changing the default font size also does not increase the size of this text.

Just to clarify again, these threads are not solutions to my question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1214027 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293358

I use Last Pass for passwords & it's worked in the past on Firefox. After updating Firefox, the Last Pass extension in by toolbar is black - in the past I would click that, open the Last Pass page to sign in, then the icon turns red and functions. Now when I click the icon a frozen page comes up that never loads. I can sign in to the Last Pass webpage, but that doesn't turn on the extension.

Any advice appreciated - thanks!

Today when I opened Firefox, it did not have my previous session of hundreds of tabs. I have come to terms with the fact that I won't be getting it back.

The problem now is that Firefox refuses to restore the previous session when I close and re-open it, although the setting to do so is still ticked. It worked without any issues up until yesterday, and now it does not.

I have not changed any settings. I have not added any add-ons, and none that I use mess with sessions to begin with. The last update for Firefox was 4 days ago, and doesn't mention anything related. I have not installed any programs that would mess with Firefox's files. It just arbitrarily changed behavior, and I am at a complete loss.

This is on Win 10. Any help is appreciated.

Hello, i usually activate the search tab via ctrl+f and using the highlighting feature. If i manually edit text in the search box, the highlight is updated respectively , but if i select any word on the page (mouse double-click if this matters) and then press ctrl+f again (which is expected to be filled in the searchtab), the highlitght is still on the old word. Is this a bug ? or maybe there is an easy solution to this.

The Firefox app on my iphone11PRO does not retain history of sites visited. When I go to settings and click on History, there is an icon with a folder that says Recently Closed. Below that, there is the notation "Websites you've visited recently will show up here." But... Nothing is there. When I look at Homepage, "Recently saved" and Recently Visited" are both turned on. What am I missing?

I'm not sure what I did when using Multi Account Containers (Must have clicked "yes" to always open in a specific container when accessing Microsoft, www.office.com. I enter user name and password and Firefox containers prompts me to Always open in container and I click no. It's like I'm stuck in an endless loop, each time I enter user name, password and two-factor a new tab opens and I have to do it all over again (Never getting into office.com). However, when using private windows I am able to get in. Can I turn off, "Always open in X container"? Thank you.
