Hi,

I have been seeing few dashes/hyphen like colored lines moving on the top of my web browser screen randomly in order only on the top border of the browser. Was wondering if this happens generally for FIREFOX QUANTAM users on Mac. I have been seeing this only on this browser. I have also attached the area/region where it occurs for reference. However, whenever I try to take a Mac Screenshot with the particular dashes it suddenly disappears.

I hope someone knows about this. Looking forward to some help.

I have some web pages that embed a PDF document. This worked fine in all major browsers until a couple weeks ago (late December 2018 / early January 2019). It still works fine in IE, Chrome and Edge but not Firefox. It's like Firefox is completely ignoring the <object> tag. I verified I have the latest version of Firefox. I'm on a Windows 10 machine.

I created a small/simple web page to display the issue (it's only 15 lines of html code):

http://missilecommand.org/control_panels/test.html

I tried installing the Firefox add-on for PDF, but that did not help.

Can anyone please help me get this working in Firefox? Thanks,

I'm seeing a really weird issue - https://rs2018.raffworks.com/ - on Firefox PC only, after opening a couple of the items up, the scrollbar completely stops working. Sometimes one item, sometimes three or four. But then bang! the scrollbar just locks up completely and it's impossible to scroll the page.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? Firefox on macOS is fine.

Mozilla Portable. Mostly everything is fine with text on pages but Disqus comments have empty spaces instead of text. Also email subscription and push notification popups can have the same effect. Modal window but no text. I tried the tips found in this support forum (sandbox something value 2 or 1 or 0) — didn't help. Note: in screenshot text won't show but hyperlinked text (active URL) was shown correctly (hidden by black marker) If you can help somehow I would really appreciate it!

First of all thx for making life harder with every update instead of easier!

After automated upgrade to v60, the newtab configuration is gone. Before, i nicely arranged the URL's i KNOW i need the most in a 4x4 matrice. Now, YOU decide, which bullshit to highlight and which sites have to be my TopSites.

How to recover my former 4x4 newtab layout, with URL's I CONFIGURED, back? I tried to find the corresponding config file in the .mozilla directory i backed up recently, but did not find that information there.

Sometimes, you should offer your users the choice, to decide, what they want, not, what you want them to want!

Firefox, unlike other browsers, has wrapping problem

List of cities with borders around individual city names is wrapping incorrectly. See screenshot and forum thread trying to resolve it.

The wrapping problem does not occur in the other browsers I have tried. I also looked at the page in Explorer and Edge. No problems there. I do not have Chrome installed. Look at these examples:

Narrow your browser window until you see the problem in Firefox.

In Ff 61 and 61.0.1 I keep on getting the About:preferences option page with absolutely no text in it at all. The tickboxes and outlines of the dropdown menu boxes are all there, laid out in the normal pattern, but no text so I can't see what is what to change anything.

1 Sometimes it opens with all text displaying as it should, but it is opening with no text more often than not.

2 When it opens with no text, if I repeatedly close and re-open, eventually it will open with one section(General, or Home, or Security etc) with text, the rest still not, then eventually another section etc until all are displaying the text. But it is a tedious process each time to get the text displaying in the section I'm wanting to view/change. Trying to select missing text does not work - it appears to be missing, not just invisible.

Oh, I should mention tjhat i am not having any display problems, text or otherwise, anywhere else - just on About:preferences.

Since upgrading to package firefox 61.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1, the pop-up menus are all invisible.

I can click the "hamburger" menu and nothing visibly happens. But then I can click in the area below it and the invisible menu item is activated. The same behavior happens for things like the Pocket button.

I've tried safe mode and refreshing Firefox. The behavior stays the same in both cases. I'm lost as to what to do other than roll back to an older version.

Version 61.0.1 being used (64-bit). Win 7. Menu being cut in half. Can be reset by toggling menu on and off, but it comes back. Saw the reference to similar problem in 2017 question that was attributed to "Tab Groups" extension, but I do not have that ext. The only remotely related extension I have is Vertical Tabs. And although I love that extension, I actually had it disabled because I have been using Web Developer docked to the side for the last few days and the problem is still happening. So definitely not it.

Other than the super-duper Vertical Tabs, I have: Decentraleyes, Disconnect, Flag Fox, Font Finder, Google Search Link Fix, Nimbus, NoScript, Turn-off-the-lights, and U-Block Origin. Pretty basic add-ons. Theme is default, and no other ones loaded. (I'm very boring). Open264 and Widevine plugins only. Images attached.

As waiting for it to revert can take hours, it could take well over a week to test all of my extensions. So I figured I would check to see if anyone else had similar problems and figured something out.

It's not a huge deal. Like I said, you can get it back simply by turning the menu off and on. But it does revert and it gets annoying as I do use the menu quite a bit, and I usually end up clicking on the tab instead of the menu item. So I always have to get it to its normal size.

Anyone else having this problem?

The video content on one of my websites has stopped working. It's my usual news site "thewest.com.au". It was working normally until a few days ago. All other sites work as normal. It shows the image for the video but when I press play nothing happens. I've always used Firefox and carried out the usual tests. I started in safe mode with add ons disabled and everything worked again. Then went back to normal mode and disabled each add on manually but it didn't work. The only add ons/ extensions I use are ABP and McAfee WebAdvisor. The other add ons are what Firefox use. I have another computer basically set up the same and that plays videos as normal. So, opening Firefox in safe mode the video plays but when I disable the add ons in normal mode it doesn't play. I have no issues with any other site. What could the problem be?

I am making a page with react and when I run it locally on Firefox specifically my page renders too many times. This results in unexpected behavior that is inconsistent across browsers. Is there a known issue with Firefox auto-rerendering or is there something I can do on my end to prevent this?
