Dear Mozilla community,

Before I wrote this question, I read a lot of posts but non of them provided answer to my problem, despite I saw some other having similar problem. Here is the problem. I'm using Firefox as browser. When using "outlook.office.com/mail/" (the email of my university) or "outlook.live.com/mail/" (my personal hotmail email), the spelling option and dictionary choices don't appear when I write click on the text field. The consequences are that the spelling check doesn't work. This problem appears only with outlook services. For example, in the text field I'm currently typing in while writing this message, the option does appear (as you can see in the second attached print screen), but when I do the same in outlook, this option don't appears anymore (as you can see in the first attached print screen). As you can see, the contextual options after right clicking on the text field are different and I don't understand why.

I have two dictionaries installed (French and English) and they work perfectly everywhere except in outlook. I read some Microsoft posts about that but what they explain is that the spelling check in outlook is all based on the browser options.

I'm not sure of when this problems append but I know the Firefox spelling check used to work before even in outlook. So I don't know if a update or something else created that but it's very bugging me and I might have to leave Firefox is I can't solve this problem.

If anyone who faced similar problems found a solution, I would be very glad to hear it! Thanks a lot

Hi i would like to know how i can change the font size of my Firefox Menu.

i already change the size of the layout whit "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" but it didn´t change the font size of the tabs or the menu. i did some research and found the userCrome.css technique to change some fonts sizes. i already change the font size of the address bar, PopMenu and tabs. But when it comes to the Main Menu, and bookmarks the font still in the same size. i also try changing the fonts size on preferences but nothing has been working.

i guess there must be a simple command line to add in the userCrome.css file to fix this but i can find it.

if some of you can help me i will appreciate very much.

i am working on a linux machine. thank you very much

Reached the end of my tether. Recently Firefox has been stopping me loading up certain websites in full. For instance BBC Sounds - the play buttons won't work. Times and Guardian comments won't load.

Now flickr will not let me log in using Firefox.

This only happens with Firefox "pure". If I use private browsing, I don't have a problem.

It's nothing to do with addons; I've disabled all those. I've followed all of the instructions on the solve page; no effect. And even Firefox itself won't let me log in, saying that cookies need to be enabled; well, again, I've done everything that the website suggests, and it reads exactly as the website suggests, but nothing.

I confess I'm not good with these things so need pretty close instructions. But I've no idea why it's getting worse and worse. There was a power cut earlier but that seems as a side-effect to have thrown me out of flickr - and every time I try to log back in the site just sits there with address and password filled in.

Hello! Since I do not see any options for submitting an enhancement request, I thought I'd do it in this forum. Maybe there is an answer already out there that could get answered here? I am a software business analyst, who specializes in usability and process management. Being one of the older users of Firefox (as are many of us 'old folks') ;), I would like to ask if there is any possibility/functionality of being able to change the tab appearance once you've installed a theme extension? Depending upon the theme installed, the tabs are translucent. This is understandable based on being able to see more of the theme, BUT... For those of us who are older, sight impaired, etc., Often it is difficult to see the words on the tab and which one is highlighted. I for one, usually have multiple tabs open relative to my work. It would be so helpful to be able to choose an option to change the tabs to:

  1. 1 Using opaque scale/slider bar (to increase or decrease), or just an option to make the tabs opaque.
  2. 2 Change the font to bold if desired.
  3. 3 Change the color of the text to white or black.
  4. 4 Make the current tab a little more pronounced (i.e., highlighted)

Thank you for your consideration of these development enhancements which would help many users. Should there be an answer out there already of how to accomplish at least one of these requests, (of which I will apologize for I cannot find any info or extension yet), I would be most grateful for your assistance with these options. Cheers!

So, I've had this problem once already and solved it. Mozilla updated automatically and I lost all of my tabs (over a 100 tabs, mostly with books I wanted to buy / compare prices), couldn't restore the session and had no history. After a dramatic and prolonged freakout, I actually found help on this site and managed to open the correct upgrades.jsonlz4 files with the jeffersoncher scrounger website. I meant to save all of the links in a word file since I no longer trusted firefox to open my tabs after an update, but real life happened. I kept putting it off and was content to have the tabs on hand as a list on the scrounger website. But then ANOTHER automatic update happened and now I no longer find the old .jsonlz4 file - I have a few really old ones (from 2017 and 2019) but the one from around the time period of the first tab loss only has tabs about restoring lost history. I now, just as before, again have no history to find the tabs with the books I want that way. My question is: I would very much like to have those tabs back - some of those books were meant as gifts and finding them the analog way is possible, but very time-consuming. Is there any way I could find the correct .jsonlz4 file (I even remember the date it was modified as shown in file explorer - or should I just give up the whole affair as lost and no longer waste time on it? I'll try reinstalling firefox after I post this message, but given that it didn't work last time, I'm not very optimistic.

Thanks in advance, all the best Ana

Hey, I cannot, for the life of me, get to a point where I can delete individual bookmarks. I have researched all avenues and fixes here on the forum, and NONE seem to help out. Sync is not on. I have tried removing the places.sqlite, rebooting Firefox, then putting the places file back into the profile.

Verifying integrity gives me this: > Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

But I don't know how to remedy this "error".

I have tried to restore bookmarks, but that just erases ALL bookmarks, leaving the folders in place.

Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Thanks

Hi When browsing MSN using Firefox, I keep on getting a popup saying I have chose to open a DMS file from https://impressionlink despite me not clicking to download anything.

It always pops up when I browse MSN, but not other sites, and it does not pop up when browsing MSN using other browsers.

I have tried virus and adware scanners, and it is still popping up.

I have attached an image of the pop up.

Any suggestions? Thanks

I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

Hello,

I am wondering it this is possible - I have a Windows 10 laptop that needs to be upgraded to V202H and I am told that the upgrade will probably delete all of my current programs and settings - including my Firefox install and all bookmarks. To help recover from that, I wanted to know if it would be possible to set up an alternate Firefox in a not often used local account on my Windows 7 laptop and then sync the two so that after the upgrade, I can download Firefox again onto the Win 10 laptop and then sync it back so that I can get all of my bookmarks and settings for FF back onto the Win 10 laptop.

I don't want to sync it with the Firefox that I use in my regular Win 7 user account since that has a separate set of bookmarks and settings that I wouldn't want to change. I just wanted a way to "hold" all of the Win 10 Firefox stuff and "reinstall" it, and had thought that sync might be a way to do that.

If that won't work, is there a way to transfer the entire FF profile over to a new install on that laptop once it is upgraded?

Thanks for any help! Much appreciated!
