I updated the windows 10 installation on my Toshiba satellite laptop yesterday, 07-31-2022 and when i opened Firefox after that, it was huge - I have to dial it down to about 70% on the zoom to have it display even somewhat normally. I don't find any current answers when I google the question, so I'm asking here as I don't know what else to try. I've attached a screenshot to show how large it is, even at 67% zoom.

thanks!

Is there a setting where I can be notified before you take it upon yourselves to download/install an update? While I was away from my computer this afternoon I was hit by a Firefox upgrade that shut down my email and all my tabs. I've lost stuff I may never find again. If the MF'er responsible were in reach I'd punch his lights out. Seriously.

I am able open yahoo mail in my firefox browser, but none of the buttons are working. i cannot select a message by clicking the checkbox to the left of the message that is displayed in my inbox. if i select the message by clicking on the message, instead of being able to view it in the pane below my list of inbox messages, it appears in a new window. in that new window, no buttons are working. cannot delete, forward, reply, or use the back button to get back to my inbox. also unable to click on the calendar icon and see my calendar or click on the contacts icon to see my contacts. yahoo mail works fine in both edge and chrome browsers only having this problem in firefox.

I can no longer use Yahoo Mail on Firefox and have had to move to Chrome and Bing in the short term.

1) Contacts no longer show up when starting to compose a mail

2) Writing a mail - the CTRL key no longer work. CTRL I opens a Page Info CTRL B Opens Bookmarks etc....

3) None of the buttons work at the top -Move -Delete -Spam

Basically, Firefox is useless for Yahoo Mail now!

Firefox is normally the best, but not yesterday or today.

Hope it can be fixed soon.

I have noticed issues with; when I download an attachment, i.e.graphics file, that the browser closes.

I have my emails configured where Yahoo and gmail available by selecting. Sometimes Yahoo mail will close and Gmail will remain open, Firefox doesn't crash but somehow closes either gmail or yahoo but not both???

I have a new laptop on which I have tried to install Firefox several times. It seems to install properly, and connect to web pages, but then nothing displays, it just shows a blank page. I've done all the basic help suggestions, clearing the cache, etc., none of that worked. I keep getting an error message: The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dill was not found. Went to a help page, where it suggested that I go to a Microsoft support site, download and install vc_redist.x64.exe. Did that, it made no difference. I'm trying to get this on a Dell laptop (Inspiron 15 3000), working in Windows 10. Really want to use Firefox as my browser and would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!

This computer is about to crash so I have a laptop backup. I have copied my Firefox profile before from my last computer to this one that is crashing without issues at all. It copied all of my bookmark data, settings, logins, themes, add-ons, etc last time. This time it refuses to read any of the files copied. No add-ons, no bookmarks no nothing. I need this taken care of ASAP as this comptuer is on it's way down and the monitor likely only has days left the way it's running. Why does copying profiles no longer work? I know how to do it and I did the exactly the same as I did before. It's been an hour fighting with it and nothing is working. I need this done ASAP.

Since Firefox's most recent update yesterday morning I have not been able to access any of my Adobe Apps. I have checked that everything is update date, restarted my laptop, cleared cache history etc. Been in touch with IT and my colleague that uses the same account. It's not an Adobe account issue, it's definitely related to the firefox update on my laptop as that's when I stopped being able to use the Apps. Any ideas?

Firefox has a frustrating habit of closing windows and not restoring them properly. I had 2 windows with a multiple tabs open in each and Firefox will successfully reopen both windows until it doesn't. I tried all the methods with going into history or using the previous.json file in sessionrestore-backups but that file only had 1 window. Now I'm trying to use my browser history to see which websites I visited but all that shows up are the closed tabs - not the windows or the websites I was on before the tab was closed.

Where can I find full browsing information to restore my lost tabs? Alternatively I heard before Firefox updates it creates a snapshot of tabs/windows. How can I access this as a backup?

I dislike Chrome, but it honestly is much better at saving previous sessions.

Somehow all my add-ons were disabled. Was I hacked? I enabled Metamask but it won't open so that I can sign in to it. When I went to add-ons, Metamask was set to run in Private windows. I changed that before I enabled it. Why would I want to run an add-on in a private window, especially a crypto wallet? How can I open Metamask?
