I've logged into consumerreports.org and am looking at refrigerators and am trying to set a filter based on "Categories" (see jpg image) At this point no input is accepted other than 'Accept'. I can not clear or change any selection. This same condition occurs with all the other options.

When I use Chrome this conditions does not occur. I can set any filter, save it, and see the result.

Is there some Firefox setting that controls this behavior that I can change?

As of version 91 I think it was, around middle of 2021 (last year), in the dropdowns from the across-to-the-top bookmarks menu, the items are spaced out vertically way too much. So much space is wasted. I like the spacing they had before that version. I just want to go on record as giving feedback that I don't like it, and wish it went back to the original spacing. I have looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346987 and know there's all sorts of weird stuff I can do to customize my Firefox to get the spacing I want, however, my point with this post is to get feedback back to the Firefox developers to see if they will consider changing it back. If posting here is not the best way to get feedback back to the developers/designers/product-owners, please let me know the best way. I couldn't find another way.

Time is passing, new versions releasing, but problem are same. Firefox 71 had a good looking colored cleartype. Fonts was clear and pretty. And new versions have a monochromatic cleartype, which makes fonts to look like sh1t. How to take back a colored cleartype? Just tell me, how. I tried many gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params, but nothing is working.

FF has hijacked my PDF files, i.e. opens them online by default. I have selected "open in Acrobat 9.5" in the Settings menu / Applications, but it still opens the files in the web viewer. How do I stop that short of uninstalling Mozilla? I am using Windows 7 Enterprise and this problem just started with the last FF update.

I recently received a request from AVG to have an add-on - AVG Online Security - which will protect against phishing and malware sites. There was a note from Firefox that Firefox does not monitor this add-on.

I use AVG Virus Protection - free copy - and it seems to be doing its job; although, I have been thinking about buying the software.

Has anyone used this add-on? Is it all right to install? Is it necessary to install? Since I changed internet service providers, I have not seen much in the way of phishing and AVG Virus Protection prevented me from accessing two websites it said were questionable.

I use Firefox locally to review the HTML/CSS while creating web pages (Win7 & Win10). Upon browser update, Firefox stopped displaying mask of any image format (SVG or PNG).

I did solve this issue in 2020 by changing the settings. about:config > privacy.file_unique_origin changing: to 'false' > refresh tab. Yet, since October 2021, it's no longer helping. After a browser update, I don't see the images with a mask, see attachment. The mask images show OK when the HTML page is on the server, but codding requires a constant 'quick check,' and usually uploading to the server is a final step. Can anyone help?

I prepared a simple example page [https://artenergy.com/mask] with a download link. Thus one can open this file locally to see the issue.

Thank you!

Hi, I am using the dark mode in firefox which is god sent boon to persons having glaucoma, with dark mode in firefox and dark reader add on. This was going well and after a recent update, I could not find it working. The dark mode is enabled and dark reader was there, but the browsing pages only shows in white. Has firefox changed anything recently to have this issue? If I miss something would the experts say, how to get back my dark browsing experience in all sites. If I find anything not visible in some sites, I used to go the windows properties and change the contrast theme to windows basic blue theme and then switched back to dark theme. this was helping the glaucoma persons very much. please, say how to solve this problem
