TL/DR: See the image. ;)

I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 (Xubuntu flavor), using Firefox 79.0, working on a web site. I'm coding specifically for Arial... and it's returning Times New Roman.

I have Arial installed, via the ttf-mscorefonts package and also adding them from a Win10 box.

Please, no "But you should do 'font-family: Arial, Veranda, sans-serif'" dismissive answers. Why? Because if I do "font-family: Arial, Veranda" I still get Times New Roman. I can even substitute "Pulsar Beta" here (a font that is installed to my local account) and it still gives me Times New Roman.

If I do "font-family: sans-serif" I get Veranda, not Arial... which is odd because Arial is my default font.

Doing "font-family: Veranda" gets my Times New Roman.

Chrome doesn't have this issue!

As a picture is worth a thousand words, see the pic.

What can I do? I did see some bugs that were fixed in v56, but none of the debugging tips help there.

Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.

Cursor blink problem in Firefox 84

I'm having a new problem with Firefox, which I think appeared with Firefox 84 (but I'm not 100% sure). When I type in some text boxes, the cursor gets very slow and unresponsive to move around by the keyboard _if_ the text in the box is long enough so that a scrollbar appears on the right hand side. Sometimes. It doesn't happen at all sites -- it's not duplicating in this textbox that I'm typing in right now -- but it happens all of the time in the message boxes at playdiplomacy.com, and sometimes on GitHub.com when posting issues. Sporadically and unreliably.

As far as I can tell, the cursor is still moving quickly and responsively, but the blink itself isn't happening so I can't see it. If I hold down the left cursor key, it looks like the cursor isn't going anywhere, but if I hit a letter key that letter appears instantly at the location where the cursor has apparently moved to, with no delay.

The problem does not occur when I hold down shift (to highlight) while moving the cursor via the arrow keys, which further suggests that it is somehow related to the cursor blinking.

Restarting in safe mode makes the problem go away instantly. Disabling all add-ons myself does not. Starting with a brand new profile does _not_ make the problem go away either. So there's something safe mode is doing that a new profile doesn't.

Any idea what might be causing this?

(Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 84.0).

Thanks!

I just reinstalled my operative system, and with that my Firefox settings got reset. I know there is an entry in about:config to prevent ads from opening new tabs and pop ups without authorization, even from legit websites like the login pop-up windows when doing a sign in in Google, in those cases to allow the windows it's needed to click on the lock icon next to the URL bar and allow it from there. The problem is that I don't remember the name of that setting and I have spend an hour looking for it on Google.

Hello everyone, I'm working on customizing the Firefox experience for users within my organization.

I have to really limit their access. One of those requests were to prevent users from minimizing their active Firefox window.

I've found articles like the one below that show how to hide all the buttons: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

However it does not suit the purpose. since it removes all of them and only on full screen.

Is there a way I can just hide the minimize button so that the user can just hide the minimize button?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! I have got a big problem that took hours of my patient attention, but nothing helped(or I have done something incorrectly).

I am unable to play most videos on the internet. For example, i can watch video in youtube, but when i play stream on the same platform, youtube complains that currently my firefox browser does not recognize any html5 video formats.

Plugins installed: OpenH264, Shockwave Flash, and... while writing this question i've found that there's also widevine cdm that i tried earlier to install in my browser, 'cause by default in my Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS there's no such extension.

I tried this to install widevine. Maybe I have done something in the way it shouldn't. 1)https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1207502 2)Reinstall firefox 3)Trying disabling any combination of installed extensions to find the "wrong".

I have Firefox 84.0.1 on Linux Mint, and I have filled in the information for one credit card. When I hover over credit card fields on retail site forms, I usually (but not always) get a pop-up "hint" showing the card number and/or expiration date ... but I cannot get the browser to actually fill in the form field. I've tried clicking, hitting Enter, hitting Tab, but nothing actually puts the information from the pop-up into the form field. Any hints as to what part of the incantation I am missing would be appreciated.

This issue is with me for some time now I guess 6 to 12 months, I have circumvented it by simply using other browsers that don't have the issue, it is only in Firefox.

I have noticed that it seems to be a reoccurring issue for many people reading through help topics.

At the moment I am using: Mozilla Ubuntu Firefox 91.0

 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:91.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/91.0

Starting Firefox in "Safe mode/Troubleshooting mode" through the "Application menu" -> "Help" -> "Troubleshoot Mode", doesn't fix the problem.

... "Did you check the date/time and time zone on your computer?" (As suggested in an older topic)

Automatic synchronization with an Internet time server, is set to "ON"
My "Time Zone" is set manually set to the correct "Time Zone"

Since the issue is only in Firefox and not in Chrome, Chromium or Opera, there is something that Firefox is doing that Cloudflare doesn't like or visa versa....

I have noticed in other posts that the blame is simply shifted to Cloudflare, but why do other browsers then not have this problem ?

Opening the no longer existing website (from another help topic here about the same issue), that is still known by Cloudflare, shows the problem if you got it too -> http://animedao.com/

See my uploaded screenshot to see it is only in Firefox.

Firefox 89 on my Raspberry Pi 4 is displaying what I'm guessing is a codec issue. Videos can be watched but the picture is corrupted by brightly coloured patches around areas of detail.

Prior to the version 89 upgrade, version 88 was working perfectly.

I have Firefox 89 on a Raspberry Pi and a PC. On the PC it still works perfectly, on the Pi video is displayed badly.

On the Pi Firefox 89 is running under Ubuntu 21.04. On the PC Firefox 89 is running under Ubuntu 18.04

Am I alone in this or have others seen the same issue ?

Assuming I am not alone, does anybody have any idea what has gone wrong ?
