Both Firefox and Chrome aren’t staying open for more than a few minutes. No matter what site I have open or however many tabs they crash. My other apps are working, my internet is stable as well as my hardware. I’ve already restarted the computer, uninstall and reinstalled Firefox, cleaned my temp folders, cleaned up my disk and cleared my browser history.

When working on a site I noticed I'm seeing what looks like squiggly lines for the dates. The created date is - 3/31/2020 and the start date is - 4/2/2020. But for some reason its shows the way it does in the attached image. I also noticed that its not showing formatting for Portuguese. Everything seems fine in Chrome on the mac, and Firefox for Windows 10.

I have tried myself to create a website with some burmese font. But found a lot of burmese sites are embeded the font but still Firefox is the only one browser which cannot show correctly. I like to know why and is there any way to solve this ? Now on mac NOTO SAN is include and we do not need to install any of burmese font but still Firefox is expection. Seems like Firefox is leaving burmese people. I mean we have other browsers like chrome and safari but Firefox used to be the one and only application for us.

Hi, I'm just working on a new website, and I noticed something odd that happens only when I open the site via Firefox. On browsers like Safari and Chrome the rgb hex colour looks identical as in Adobe Photoshop or Apple Pages, where I created content, but Firefox seems to oversaturate the fonts quite nasty for some reason.

I attachted you a screenshot where it should be very visible. If this is a bug, is it possible to get this fixed soon? I don't really want to put a warning on my website for Firefox users if possible.

I recently had a font management program affect the fonts on my computer in an unexpected and unwanted manner. Immediately after this happened Firefox was no longer rendering type correctly on a number of webpages. Some were completely compromised with "Last Resort" (i.e., rounded boxes with question marks for each character) replacing all text, and some with only certain portions affected. At the time I did not check other browsers to see if/how they were affected.

I replaced/reinstalled the Mac system fonts, and reinstalled around 90% of the additional fonts that I've collected over the years, however, Firefox was still having issues. At this point I uninstalled Firefox and pulled down a fresh copy, cleared all caches, and checked both Chrome and Safari. Firefox is still not working correctly and the other two browsers show no sign of the problem (if they ever had it all). Attached are screen shots of my My Yahoo! page in Chrome and Firefox showing the results of the issue.

I would really love to keep using Firefox, but this problem would be a deal breaker.

Cheers Randy

Accented characters appear with extra accent mark: ´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú (intermittently).

After Firefox has been open more than a few minutes, usually with at least two or three windows and/or tabs open, when I try to type accented characters (á, é, í, ó, ú Á É Í Ó Ú) they come out with an extra accent mark preceding the accented letter (´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú). I usually have a WebWhatsApp window open.

This doesn't happen in other browsers or other programs that take text.

At the same time, the Ctrl+F (for find) function stops working. If I close all of the windows, and attempt to reopen Firefox, I get an error that says that Firefox is still running, and do I want to close it? I say yes, and it closes. And for a short or longer while, the problems go away. Then they come back.


Using Spanish (Mexico) language and Latin American keyboard, with Español (Mexico) language pack installed.

Lenovo Flex 3 -1570 laptop, Windows 10 Home v. 1803 . Updated Firefox Quantum 66.0.5. Had Firefox "optimized" a few times by my Lenovo tech support subscription service. No effect.

Mozilla Portable. Mostly everything is fine with text on pages but Disqus comments have empty spaces instead of text. Also email subscription and push notification popups can have the same effect. Modal window but no text. I tried the tips found in this support forum (sandbox something value 2 or 1 or 0) — didn't help. Note: in screenshot text won't show but hyperlinked text (active URL) was shown correctly (hidden by black marker) If you can help somehow I would really appreciate it!

All websites suddenly started loading in Times New Roman font. Graphics/videos are loading improperly or not loading at all. Clearing my cache didn't help. Zoom and view settings all seem to be right. Internet Explorer, of all things, is loading right for me.
