I am running Win 10. When I read The Economist, Firefox clips the last word off of each line of text. I am unable to adjust Firefox to eliminate the problem. When I read the same article from The Economist using the Chrome browser, NO WORDS ARE CLIPPED FROM THE END OF EACH LINE OF TEXT. The Economist customer help says that this is a Firefox formatting problem

I have moved my bookmarks form an iMac to a new Windows 10 PC. Moving them was not a problem. But they have lost their favicons and now all have a grey globe as the only symbol. Very annoying. I had hoped that I could bring back the favicons one by one by using each bookmark. But that doesn't change anything.

My bank site, amazon & other sites with secure login require verification every time I want to log in ONLY on Firefox. IE does not do this BUT I support and prefer to use Firefox. I have refreshed Firefox, I completely removed Firefox and downloaded and installed fresh, I have run Ccleaner, Cleared my data and after entering my login and security code it will STILL demand a code even though I have not even closed the browser when trying to log in a second time. I have been trying to fix this for 3 days now! Nothing works.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox and when I post a comment on disqus based comment section on breitbart.com my comment gets posted at the location where it should go, but the page automatically scrolls down to the bottom of the page, and then I have to manually scroll back to find my comment and continue reading, And if it's a hot topic, sometimes I have to search for the location, as multiple other posts are being submitted by other readers and my previous location gets lost.

I've had this problem since Windows 10 updates from November 2019? When I boot up first thing in the morning and open Firefox I am connected to the net with my ISP but Firefox just hangs and in the bottom left corner says Looking up whatever I've clicked on say Gmail? Nothing happens. If I leave it a while say 2 or 3 minutes I am connected to Gmail and can read my emails. When I click on the link to say Facebook it just hangs again? It may or may not connect. When I open Google Chrome or Microsoft edge I am immediately connected to websites with no problem. I have researched this problem, switched off Microsoft Firewall, and added Firefox to my list in Malwarebytes Premium. It seems to run okay for a few day6s and then the problem returns? Everything okay this morning, all good. Closed Firefox, went had some lunch and when I opened again it refused to connect me to the net, but Google chrome and Edge does? I'm at my wits end now. It's clearly not a internet connection problem else I wouldn't be able to use Chrome or edge? This seems to be something in Firefox that is cutting me off. As I say if I click on a website within a minute or two it will connect me but only that site. Has anyone any idea what might be causing this. All Windows 10 and Malwarebytes software up to date as is Firefox, google chrome and edge. Hope someone can help!

Thanks.
