When previewing a PDF attachment in Outlook Web App, the preview screen shows the message 'something went wrong while the document preview was being created' and no preview shows.

  • the exact same account and email shows fine in both Edge and Chrome
  • the preview looks fine for Word and Excel files
  • the problem persists in private mode
  • the problem persists after clearing cache and cookies
  • changing Firefox 'actions for applications' settings for PDF makes no difference
  • the problem has been tested and confirmed on two computers using different connections in different locations.

Hello,

I am using Firefox version 92. The screenshot function is not working, both if I right click and request a screenshot from the slideout menu, and if I request a screenshot from the shortcuts/overflow menu (scissors icon). I have attached a screenshot (taken with ‘prntscr” through windows) png of the result that takes place on my screen. The screen will freeze with this image of a large X until I do a refresh of the page. Cntl-Shift-S also does not work. I have tried clearing the cache, running FF in safe mode, refreshing FF, reinstalling FF, and I have ensured that the extensions.screenshots.disabled setting in about:config is set to ‘false’ (also toggled it to ‘true’ and back to ‘false’). I have attached a screenshot of all the settings in about:config that pertain to screenshots.

Thank you for your help.

Всем привет. Почему-то абсолютно на всех вебстраницах шрифт выглядит максимально уродливо. Где то полутонкие буквы, где то они и вовсе съезжают друг на друга. В некоторых местах длинный дефис превращается в "Ч". С шрифтами игрался, ничего не помогло. Попробовал еще пару браузеров - там все нормально. На скриншоте пример из firefox и из другого браузера.

Hello,

I love Firefox, but lately it is driving me insane! Here is what happens:

Most of the websites I visit, if they have more that 1 language, Firefox loads different language when I load a new page on that site.

For Example: I go to prestashop.com and the site loads in Russian. Then I click Templates in the main menu, and the page is loaded in Polish. Then I click on Modules in the menu and that page is loaded in German. And this happens randomly, not every time.

Second problem: I try to open a product on some online store and it redirects me to the previous page I was in. I try to login in other site and when I click on the login button it redirects me to the previous page again. That happens on many sites I visit, but not all.

I tried cleaning the Cache, Cookies and etc - nothing changed. Reinstalled Firefox and logged with my profile, the problems are still there. If I do not log with my profile Firefox is working normally.

Is there a way to fix this and not by creating new profile, because I have a ton of bookmarks and logins that I don't want to loose?

This is not happening in private mode.

First of all know that I am a retired computer tech and have tried various ways to resolve this problem myself to no avail, maybe someone here can help me. Here is my quandary: When I update to the newer version (92.0.1) of Firefox on my Windows 10 Laptop it changes the background & Menu Bar to a white-ish/gray color and I cannot get my menu bar color back to the black background with white text that was in the 86.0.1 (64-bit) version. The bookmarks toolbar remains a white-ish/gray color & with the Menu bar the same color it all blends in and I do not like that. I would rather have the Menu bar remain as a black background with white text & the bookmarks toolbar remain the white-ish/gray color. Is there a way to change the colors back to what they were in the 86.0.1 version? I have currently uninstalled the 92.0.1 version and reinstalled the 86.0.1 version and that is what I am working with now. However, I keep getting a pop-up every once in awhile to upgrade to the newer version, which I deny because of the background color changes, and I have continually asked the support team to keep the color changes the same but have heard nothing back from them concerning this issue and when I try to change the colors back to their previous settings I cannot find the means to do so and I have tried to go into the themes/color options to no avail. Is there a way to keep the colors in the 92.0.1 version the same as they were in the 86.0.1 version? Thank you for your help in this matter.
