Hi

Today Firefox started to ask "master password" on startup. Yes I use master password, but Firefox never asked it on startup. Why this could be happening? It does not matter what startup page I load, it could be blank page or any other. No sync or other Mozilla account is connected. Tried to disable all add-ons, does not help. Firefox version: 63.0.3 (64-bit).

For some time Firefox crashes constantly. Sometimes right after opening, sometimes after a while. It's a little different every time. How can I find out exactly why Firefox crashes? Finally, I do not want to work in Safe Mode or the like with Firefox, especially if you have a Password Manager z.b. uses. I have also completely reinstalled the Firefox and tried to remove all other files that are possible.

Seit einiger Zeit stürzt der Firefox ständig ab. Manchmal gleich nach dem Öffnen, manchmal nach etwas längerer Zeit. Es ist jedesmal ein wenig anders. Wie kann ich genau herausfinden, warum der Firefox abstürzt? Schließlich möchte ich nicht im Abgesicherten Modus oder ähnlichem mit dem Firefox arbeiten, gerade wenn man einen Password-Manager z.b. nutzt. Ich habe den Firefox auch schon mal komplett neu installiert und versucht alle weiteren Dateien vorher zu entfernen, die möglich sind.

Why is it impossible to adjust print margins in Firefox? Even if you change the values, the printing margins are always the same. Why? With other browsers (Edge, Chrome), on the same websites, this does not happen and you can freely choose your favorite print margins, with Firefox not.

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.

The Duckduckgo extension caused the page https://www.commsec.com.au/ to reload constantly so I removed it. Now Firefox won't let me add a general duckduckgo search engine and displays the following nonsensical messages (or others in the same vein) regardless of the number of re-starts or alterations to profile documents (including removal of search.json). Those alterations (including the removal) have since been reversed.

"Firefox could not install the search plugin from "https://mycroftproject.com/installos.php/29720/duckduckgo.xml" because an engine with the same name already exists." "Firefox could not install the search plugin from "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/240221/duckduckgo_https_ssl-20140120.xml?src=search" because an engine with the same name already exists."

I've had no problem with previous versions of Firefox. Since installing version 63.0.3, constant problems with crashing, hanging or loading homepage and websites extremely slowly. Sometimes loading of homepage cycles through two or three partial sequences before completing. Have tried all obvious recommended solutions without success, including safe mode, refresh and reinstall. Am using MacBook Pro 10.10.5 and BT as my home page. I use Safari as my other browser and it continues to run without any issues

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!
