I used to use Theme & Font Size Changer and was able to change the fonts to large and bold so I could read them. Now it doesn't work because of Firefox "upgrades". There really should be an easier way to change fonts, both sizes and colors, because not everyone is 20 years old with great eyesight. Is there a fairly easy way to do this? I'll even take a not-so-easy way if it works.

BTW, I've used "Firefox Colors" and it does make it a bit easier, but I really need to be able to increase the size of the text AND bold it.

I've created a new profile and it doesn't help. The site I'm trying to access is secured by a TLS Certificate. I have other things like AdBlock Plus and LastPass installed. I've rearranged the toolbar to my own preferences.

Resetting undoes most of my settings. There is a "TRY AGAIN" button that circumvents the issue. This is very annoying.

ALONE of all the Browsers I have (FIREFOX 72.0.2, CHROME 79.0.3945.130, INTERNET EXPLORER 11.592.18362,0, and EDGE 44.18362.449.0), FireFox fails to access this web-site. Something's wrong with FireFox?

I have logins saved on various sites but recently Firefox has starting offering logins for sites that aren't the one I'm trying to log into. Because I have quite a few logins saved this can result in getting a dropdown of dozens of 'suggested' logins and finding the one in the list that's the actual login for the site I'm visiting is a bit of pain. How can I set this so that Firefox will only show me logins for the site I'm currently visiting the way it used to?

I've just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Previously, if I downloaded a .csv file, eg from a bank site, I had the option to save it or open it directly with Excel. Now, with Windows 10, all I get is a Save As dialog and there is no option to open the file in Excel. Is this change something in Firefox or is it an "enhancement" of Windows 10?

Grateful if anyone can tell me how to restore the option to open the file in Excel without saving it.

I have version 72.0.2 of Firefox and recently I no longer have the option to auto-fill passwords saved in Norton Vault. All my passwords are safe in the Norton vault but normally I get a little circle at the end of the password field which gives me the option to auto-fill from Norton. Nothing I can do will fix this. Any clues as to how to get Firefox to link up again with Norton Vault? Many thanks

There are several hundred browser websites that are opened after reboot with Mozilla Firefox reload.

How did this happen with a reload?

Is this a cache or cookie problem?

What was changed in the January Mozilla Firefox update?

Ccleaner requires that the browser is closed to clear cache and cookies.

If this were done the several hundred webpages would no longer reopen.

How can the Mozilla Firefox browser be modified so that it no longer displays Access Denied without losing the reload option for the hundreds of websites that are currently open?

(The browser typically has the default settings)


The Google Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers can open these websites without problems. Other end users opening the same websites with Mozilla Firefox did not see Access Denied.


For this problem please indicate:

What specifically happened with the January update that may have caused this problem? If it was not the January update what else could have caused this problem? How can the problem be fixed so that the webpages that are currently open can easily be reopened after a reboot with reload? What could have been done to prevent this Access denied problem?

Firefox initially popped open a window stating that I already had another copy open and so wouldn't open. After some investigating, I found a fix and followed the steps to delete profiles - possibly the cause of the errors. (I had applied this solution once months ago and it had worked then.) Subsequent to this attempt, I was unable to open Firefox - even with the creation of new profile(s). Given the situation, I deleted Firefox entirely by dragging into Trash and emptying the trash and re-logging in. Downloaded a clean new install from the Mozilla website. Although the DMG file downloaded fine, when I attempt to copy app to Applications folder, the system hangs. So now there is no way to re-install Firefox?!

This link /post seems to reflect my condition: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1240427 However at the given location on my computer, I only had a FB video plugin - even after i deleted that, there is no change, i.e. remain unable to implement a fresh new install of Firefox.

Suggestions? Thanks! RT12

p.s. Using a different computer to post this. When I get a chance, I'll go back to the one with this issue and see if I can post the "troubleshooting information".

The solved solution of new text for the userChrome.css file doesn't work. The userChrome.css text jdevlin supplied does not work on my Firefox. I had to create a new chrome folder as this update seems to have deleted it. I pasted the text into the userChrome.css but there was no change. What am I doing wrong?

Really need help on this, Firefox is practically unusable like this.

Hi, everybody. I have a problem that I can't solve on my own. In the FAQ or search, I did not find a mention (I could search poorly)

I will try to summarize the essence: immediately after installing Firefox (from www.mozilla.org) on ​​my PC, I tried to enable the synchronization in order to (including) download my extensions that I used previously on other devices. After that, I found that none of them could be installed (they did not even appear in the Add-ons Manager list). In addition, I noticed that the list of recommended add-ons from the Manager's is displayed incorrectly (there are no preview images). When I tried to download a add-on manually from the list by clicking the "+ Add to Firefox" button, I received a pop-up message that "The add-on could not be downloaded of a connection failure" (I use a wired connection (Ethernet) to my PC, without any restrictions. At this point, I was using Chrome in parallel without any problems). I tried to go to (addons.mozilla.org) and found the same behavior. Images were not displayed and extensions were not downloaded (Download failed. Please check your connection.).

What I tried to do to solve the problem: reset the default settings; disable syncing; run in Safe Mode; delete Firefox entirely, and install it again. But all these actions did not solve my problem.

I will be grateful to anyone who can answer me. I'm counting on you.

I'm trying to use Youtube Music service from a Windows 10 desktop PC, through Firefox. I always get the following error when trying to reproduce any song: "An error occurred. please try again later." and then it skips to the next song and the next and the next... and falls in a loop without reproducing anything at all. This happens when signed into my Google account and with being logged in. However, it doesn't happen if I open a private window and try to reproduce the same songs or if I sign into my Google account in private mode or if try to use a different browser like Egde, for instance. I have tried to open Firefox with the extensions disabled, but it doesn't make a change. if I try on my laptop on Firefox I get the same thing (I have my Firefox accounts synced). Most probably it's something in Firefox settings, but I cannot find what. I have tried to clear the cache and so, without success.

Any idea? Thanks!

To make a long story short, I created This Firefox account to get support creating another Firefox account... After trying to set up "sync" on my laptop (where I normally browse using Firefox – I am writing this from the desktop that I wanted to get synced) I got an error message with the heading: "Cannot create account", followed by the text: "You must meet certain age requirements to create a Firefox Account." This is strange, since I am 19 years old (I suspect that I entered the wrong nubmer). I really want to get my laptop and its profiles synced, since much work has been put into browser-personalization. How do I fix this problem?
