Hello!

I'm using Firefox MSIX on a laptop with an OLED screen. To avoid burn-in, static elements on the screen are discouraged.

Unfortunately, when the Reader View is enabled on Firefox, a vertical toolbar appears and is constantly on the same spot on the screen.

I would like to have this toolbar disabled or have it to hide/show depending on mouse prompt. Is there a built-in setting I could change to make this happen?

Would this solution here be my only option and would it work on Firefox MSIX? Finding the firefox profile on the Microsoft Store app is tricky.

Thank you.

All of a sudden, after waking my computer from sleep, I found that many websites in Firefox are displaying the main text content at 13px, ignoring font sizes specified in CSS etc. I first discovered this on my organization's website, I thought it was a browser cache issue, but it has persisted. The text content on our front page is all the correct size, but everything on the website that is "main content" text that is not in a heading tag, like blog post or regular page content, is rendered at 13px. Other sites like Wikipedia load this way as well. In private mode, the issue disappears. In Chrome, the issue does not occur.

I have cleared all cookies, browser cache, site data, history, and the problem persists. I have checked the default font settings in Firefox, the checkbox saying websites should override the font settings is already checked. Zoom is set to 100%. I updated to the latest version in the course of restarting, and it didn't fix the issue either.

In the attached screenshot, the examples on the left are in regular Firefox windows. On the top right, a page on our site is displayed correctly in Firefox private mode. In the bottom right, Wikipedia is displayed correctly in Google Chrome.

Once again Firefox adds a feature I don't want and can't disable. I want not to have a tab bar. They take up too much screen and get in the way. So I fond code that eliminates the tab bar unless there is more than one tab. Then the latest release addes the 'search tab' down arrow I neither want nor ever asked for and I can't get rid of it.

Why do you insist on doing this Mozilla? How do I turn this useless feature off?

Instantly upon installing the latest update I've witnessed glaring issues across the board with Firefox that are severely impacting my ability to browse websites.

The two major issues are as listed in the title, all text is about 10-20% smaller, the ui elements displayed within web pages are also shrunk to this same degree (zooming in the page just makes everything appear distorted and thus is not an acceptable fix), and many parts of text or coding are broken on pages that cause them to display the wrong colors which make many sites all but impossible to read.

I do not utilize any of the windows settings for zooming or making text larger, I've already attempted to clear cache and cookies, and thus far I can't find any way to resolve the issue. To be clear, this is a firefox issue because other browsers such as chrome still display everything perfectly.

Hi all,

Had my text font changed all of a sudden. I'm not sure if I've accidentally pressed a shortcut to change any setting.

Image attached also show that this change has caused some misaligned numbers on a browser.

Is there a way to revert text to my previous settings?

Although I had long ago selected "Open Previous Windows and Tabs" in Start-Up, my windows and tabs were not restored when I inadvertently quit Firefox this morning and restarted. I then went to the three horizontal bar Application Menu > History to look for "restore previous session", but that button was missing.

So I have two questions: 1. Why didn't my selected preference, "open Previous Windows and Tabs " at Start-Up work? Is there a fix? 2. What has happened to my "restore previous session button in the History tab of the Application Menu, upper right of toolbar? Has Firefox deleted the "restore previous session" button? Can I reinstall it in some way?

I'll be grateful for advice. Thank you

I didn't change or adjust anything, but when I opened Firefox this morning some websites are displaying differently. On some websites, the font size is smaller than 'normal' (see attached Wikipedia screenshots), some font styles have been changed (see attached Serebii and Archive of Our Own screenshots), and some websites are not displaying properly (see attached tumblr screenshots). I have cleared my cookies, cleared my browsing history, reset my browsing and font preferences, disabled all of my add-ons,disconnected from my VPN, logged out and back into Firefox, restarted my computer, and uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but the issue still persists.

I'm aware I can custom adjust the font size, which solves the sizing issue, but not the display or changed font.

I've included screenshots of the issues, as well as Chrome screenshots for comparison.

Is there anything else I can do to fix this? Thank you for the help!!

Hello, I've upgraded my Ubuntu distribution from Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 yesterday. This forced me to update my Firefox version, I am now running the 104.0.2. I now have the following issue: on some websites, the page loads normally but as soon as it's loaded, the page becomes entirely blank. This doesn't seem to be a website issue, as it actually appears normal for a very short instant before it disappears. A website for which this happens is: https://www.lalibre.be/ (I only encountered the issue on another website but it's from the same editor). I tried in a private window and it works normally! I tried in the normal window after deactivating all the addons, it still doesn't work. I tried with or without the Firefox account logged in, it doesn't work. Until now, it's only these 2 websites from the same editor, but as I said, they worked fine yesterday, they work fine on other browsers and they work fine in Firefox private mode. Any idea where this might come from?

My FireFox media player was working fine this morning. Now it will not play the mp3 files I need to play for my work. Also, there's no sound on YouTube when I use FireFox. I have system sounds on my computer, and I have sounds on Google Chrome, but there are no sounds on FireFox. The media player will open with the mp3 files, but it does not move or play at all. I disabled my antivirus and it still won't work. So that is now fully back on. I uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted my computer, I have done so many things over the last 4 hours and nothing is working. There was a Windows update today that happened shortly before this problem occurred.

Any suggestions?

I am not able to download any kind of file, from any kind of website to my disk. I am able to select open on the download dialog, and this will open the file and save it to the temp directory firefox uses for this function, but this does not save the files to disk/the download folder like I want to. I am unable to "Save image as..." as well, since this is considered a download. There is no record of these downloads even being attempted in the download history.

I have 2 laptops I will call OLD and NEW. Both have Firefox Browser 104.0.2. I have the Menu Bar at the upper left corner for both OLD and NEW.

On OLD when I click the Bookmarks link in the Menu Bar, i see a few links (Manage Bookmarks, Bookmark current tab, etc). Then below the links I see all my bookmarks listed. I DO NOT have to click on a link to see my bookmarks.

On NEW when I click the Bookmarks link in the Menu Bar, I also see a few links (Manage Bookmarks, Bookmark current tab, etc). And then nothing else. I have to click a link to see bookmarks. How do I get NEW to display my bookmarks without having to click a link?

I am unable to delete my emails on Yahoo through Firefox. The trashcan icons on the left side next to the trash tab are missing. The entire upper toolbar doesn't work (the click all box, the delete icon, etc.). I cannot even delete the emails themselves from inside the email.

 This started about 5 days ago.  The deletion of emails work just fine through chrome.

Hello All, I recently had to start up my brand new MacBook Pro up in "Safe Mode" to verify an unrelated problem. When I restarted my computer from safe mode, my Bookmarks were either gone completely or "empty" and I was apparently in a newer version of Firefox. I then trashed my Firefox application and tried to restore an older version via Time Machine and after I copy it to my Applications folder I get the message that I am trying to open an older version of firefox and then doesn't allow me to do that. When I followed the option to their extents, only the new version with NO bookmarks shows up.

How can I get my old bookmarks back?

Thanks bc

The following websites no longer display text and are unusable (the newest one is lowes.com):

https://portal.wespath.org/LoginPage.aspx

https://www.connectmysites.com/index.html?pg=login (text appears, then disappears)

https://www.lowes.com no text visible; search works if you just type and press enter, but you cannot see any text; this one just started in the past few days (I used it about a week ago w/no issues)

The websites work fine in Microsoft Edge Chromium.

The images attached are from Lowes.com - "FF" meaning Firefox, "EC" meaning Edge Chromium.

I also tried creating a new profile w/o all the security turned on. No luck - same problem.
