Hello

Is there some documentation to explain what the font size options mean?

I apologize but I havent studied fonts, I just use the one I feel most comfortable with.

Generally, for me, the font size is too small. And the Adv. page is confusing.

How does the minimum font size relate to the proportional or monospace sizes?

The proportional has serif, sans-serif. The the next 2 opts are serif and sans-serif. Are they related? Because I can set serif to sans-serif and sans-serif to serif.

Att. my settings

thanks agander

http://validator.w3.org/ renders as a blank page. Same for https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/.

Switching to basic page style, I can get to the unstyled content of the page, but why aren't the styles loading?

I allow JavaScript for these pages & disable Adblock Plus, and can't think of any other add-ons that might interfere.

I cannot access Mozilla via Firefox - issue arose when trying to access add-ons yesterday (25 Jan 2020). Firefox displays the following: "Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to addons.mozilla.org. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."

In order to post this, I have had to access the site via Chromium, which also noted a secure connection error. I have used a VPN add-on to secure the connection and access the site.

I assume this is an issue on the Mozilla server with an expired certificate?

Would really appreciate any help with this.

When I go to a website, the website scrolls down in medium speed until it reach the bottom, It does not allow me to scroll while this is happening. I have tried to refresh firefox, reinstall firefox and run with no addons. Autoscrolling is off. Caret Browsing is off. It also scrolls if I am active in another window.

This is most annoying on auto loading websites, because it scrolls down the site loads more content and the scrolling continues until the site stop loading new content.

This only happens on this device and not on my laptop (also Linux) that has the same plugins.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers seems to suggests that it's possible to hide all tabs in certain containers, but does not explain how to do that.

"Hide and Show: Assume you use your browser for both Work and Personal tasks. When you come home at the end of the day, you don’t want to be thinking about “Work” anymore, but your browser is full of Work tabs. You can “Hide” your Work tabs and proceed with your Personal tasks. Then the next day, when you are back at work, you can “Hide” your Personal tabs and “Show” your Work tabs."

On an aside, I'm also getting pretty confused between collections (mobile), containers (desktop), sessions, tab groups, etc... they all seem to have overlapping but different functionality.

Only in Linux, fortunately. I'm using FFox 73.0 in Windows 7 to write this. I'm running Slacko puppy ver 6.3.0. Until now, FFox has run in it flawlessly. No access to safe mode in this OS. Holding down the <Shift> key starts Geany editor. I've run the FF script in console and have a screenshot.jpg file available for upload. Only a few lines, then the Ffox crash reporter appears. Not too useful. I'll try restoring FFox from a backup and see if I missed something.

In the latest version of Firefox Developer Edition, I notice the the urlbar behaviour has changed from what it was before and I want to change it back. Are there any settings in about:config that do this? In particular, I want to stop expanding and even showing suggestions whenever I click in the address bar. To me, this is odd and distracting behaviour and not what is done by other browsers so I want to turn it off.
