Prior to Version 113.0.1 I had No problems with all my web sites. Now, I have major issues. From not being able to log on to having to close the browser totally because Firefox won't allow me to go back to the site's home page. I know this accurate as I can log on to the sites via Safari and No problems and the sites work correctly.

Who wants to hunt down their cryptically named profile? Who knows where it is? Why put us through this? Do they enjoy aggravating their users or are they just mentally deranged? Why, why, why? Who else does this kind of idiotic behavior? I can't think of a single other program that would elect to erase all of the setup we've painstakingly done for nothing.

All I did was go to the original location to check something and clicked firefox.exe. Then Poof. Did they just do a major update recently? Like today? When it checks for updates it says its up to date but it said that a few days ago I think. Version 113.0.1. I can't even find the previous profile. I see only one file under Firefox\App\bin that says "sqlite3.exe" which I think is how they name themselves. A rational person would name it PROFILE of course. But we're in the realm of the insane.

I do see "profile" in Firefox\Data though but its filled with dozens of files. And there's no indication of any other profiles there. There are several extensions there and as mine were wiped out maybe this is the old profile?

A sensible mind would simply tell us when there's a major update and how to recover everything.

The link colors are suddenly incorrect. Normally the links are blue and the visited links are purple, but now they are pastel light-blue and pastel pink. This problem is not in Edge or Chrome. I am using Firefox 113.0.1

I have tried - rebooting windows - windows shutdown, wait, restart - changing the firefox website appearance and themes (auto, dark, light) Still no solution. Any ideas? Thanks.

Firefox using two fonts for Arabic text

In a simple HTML file containing an Arabic / Urdu / Persian phrase: "با نشئہ درویشی در ساز و دمادم زن", Firefox in Linux (Ubuntu, to be more precise) uses the default font (DejaVu Sans) for the whole phrase except for one character (UNICODE: 6C1). Font used for this character is Noto Sans Arabic UI. So the text looks broken due to different fonts.

Please have a look at the attached screenshots for better understanding.

I've tried to search but could not find how exactly Firefox resolves preferences in Font Settings and CSS "font-family" preference to local fonts in Linux. Does this have to do something with "fontconfig"?

How can I make Firefox use only the default font for the whole phrase?

Save Image As... in shortcut menus (mouse right-click)

Hello Community,

I have always found the "Save Image As..." menu command when right-clicking with the mouse in order to save an image. Recently the website where I download these images from has implemented an automatic zoom feature that changed this standard menu (now appearing with commands such as "Save Page As...", "Save Page to Pocket", "Select All", etc...). I cannot access any command that directly relates to the underlying image and so I am not able to save it. The website developers assured me that with their own browser (not Firefox, I presume) the "Save Image As..." option is still available, suggesting me to install a different one. I believe the reason of this change in behaviour is because the mouse does not find a direct link to the image any more (as if there was a layer in between running a script to enlarge the image).

My question: is there any other way to access the menu option I need? Why should other browsers be able to "see through" the image and have the standard menu?

Thank you for any suggestion.

Hi there. I'm using Windows 10. Recently, I have noticed that pressing Ctrl+F4 doesn't close a Firefox tab for me anymore. Ctrl+W does close the current tab, but my muscle memory is for Ctrl+F4 and I'd like to figure out why it quit working.

Any clues for me? Thank you!

Hi,

I seem to having multiple problems with Firefox over the last few weeks...

This problem is - I can't unblock popups. I have got popup blocking enabled, with a couple of Exceptions - it's been working fine until I wanted to use it today. I have tried turning off popup blocking, re-entering the exceptions - nothing is helping!!!

Does anyone know what to do?

Copy/pasting URLs sometimes forces my keyboard language from ENG CMS to ENG US

Hello,

This is a weird issue that's been plaguing me for years. Only recently have I spotted the common factor.

On two Windows 10 computers, sometimes when I copy/paste a link in Firefox, my keyboard input language switches from Canadian Multilingual Standard to US English. On my desktop, I don't even have US English installed as an input method, yet it still switches to it. I've even made registry changes to specifically remove it, to no avail. Disabling the option to switch languages via keyboard shortcut also makes no difference.

This seems to happen completely randomly. I'll ctrl+c/ctrl+v a link and the language will change. Putting it back to CMD and ctrl+c/ctrl+v again and it won't change. The change only happens when I copy/paste a link from Firefox. Maybe one out of every 15-20 times on the large scale, but sometimes it will happen twice in a row, or not at all for a week.

Does anyone have any insight on this issue, or how I can fix it permanently? It's such a weird issue and it's infrequent enough, but every time it happens it feels like tripping in a full sprint. Very unpleasant.

Currently running 113.0.1 (64-bit), but again, this has been plaguing me for years. I first thought it was a Windows install issue, but it's happening on two different systems. Thanks in advance

I am working on a new computer with Kubuntu and have FF installed via .deb.

On my previous computer, I could drag files from the downloads dropdown (eg download a file and then drag it into gmail as an attachment).

Now this is not possible. Instead, I need to go to the downloads folder in order to drag and drop a file. An extra step and rather annoying.

The problem is persists in Safe Mode.

Is there any way to get the old functionality back?

Firefox will not play videos from any site, including YouTube, Twitter plays in home screen but does not play in full screen mode, FoxNews or any site. I hear audio but there is no video. Firefox automatically updated Friday May 12 2023 and I don't know if that update had a glitch. I tried reinstalling firefox and it still didn't work. I cleared all history, cookies, cache, etc and still does not work.

please help, thanks
