Hi there,

My custom font (avenir) displays fine in all other browsers except Firefox. My site is: https://madebycircular.com.au/

Here is my code:

@font-face {

 font-family: 'avenir-book';
 font-weight: normal;
 src: url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.woff2') format('woff2'), /* Super Modern Browsers */
      url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.woff') format('woff'), /* Pretty Modern Browsers */
      url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.ttf')  format('truetype'), /* Safari, Android, iOS */

}

I can't figure out what is wrong.

Thanks Clare

New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

My desktop Mac suddenly (July 28) quit displaying page specified fonts, in some - not all - instances, using Inspector reveals affected sites defaulting to Helvetica Last Resort, or failing to display Open Sans via gstatic.com. For comparison, my laptop - same FF v.78.12.0esr, using the same (advanced - default) fonts and colors settings - displays everything properly, as do those same sites on mobile. This is a local problem.

Those sites affected work fine using Chrome, Safari, which indicates system level fonts are loading properly.

Of the sites affected, one thing in common seems to be that they are WordPress/PHP dynamic sites.

I use FontExplorerX font management, which has been stable for years. There aren't any reported conflicts.

Application and system font caches have been flushed.

Firefox has been freshened.

I feel like this may be a corrupted prefs file somewhere, but have no idea how to proceed.

Attached images show different page display results using same search term in Google, DuckDuckGo, and two sites that are affected.

what is the logic behind the moronic popout address bar? why was the arrow button removed? was there perhaps a petition signed by millions asking for it? I don't remember seeing one. why was the option to disable it removed with the latest release? do you think we all want to use Firefox but feel like we're using Chrome? copying your competitor in order to attract its users isn't exactly the best USP. it serves no purpose whatsoever, and everything about it hurts the eye - the sparsed out list when you click on it, the fading edges, the whole white-blue mobile-on-desktop aesthetic, it's just hideous.

why can't this nonsense be made optional? if there are hordes of bored developers who need to justify their existence by fiddling with stuff that nobody complains about then fine, let them go at it, but make it optional for those of us who don't want to live by corporate diktat, and whose opnions and feedback you so profess to care about.

I despair, I really do. I've been using FF pretty much since it began, and if this isn't fixed with the next relase, I'm happy to wave goodbye, not that anyone cares, but there you have it.

(It's a hassle) It used to remember me just fine with the older Firefox I've tried everything the website administrator suggested and nothing works Please don't ask me to upgrade my Firefox again because I don't know what other unwanted things are going to happen.

Thanks

Netflix, Charles Schwab, others appear to not recognize my device and require two step authentication, every time, but saying now my device is registered and I won't need to do that again. But I do. What do I need to change so that their marker remains without losing all my privacy? Is it a cookie? Do I have to change the Dashboard to no security? Can I do that for just one website at a time?

My wife and I share one desktop iMac. We use different login accounts. I currently use Firefox. She can only use Safari. I would like her to be able use Firefox. Can she download it and use it separately for herself? If so is there anything special I need to do or just have her download and install it. Thank you.

Tab menu freezes; I can't click between tabs

Tabs in the tab bar randomly, suddenly can't be interacted with by mouse/trackpad pointer, sometimes even just the one and only tab in a window won't close when clicking on the "X." The keyboard commands to cycle between tabs and close tabs still work, but this is frustrating nevertheless. I've tried disabling all the add-ons I added in the month or two before the problem started. I refreshed Firefox, but once I added my add-ons back in, the problem persisted.

What else can I try to fix this? Any input would be appreciated.

We are receiving this message from Ebay when attempting to list a product (see below). Any suggestions how to work around it please? Thank you.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to scgi.ebay.co.uk because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

scgi.ebay.co.uk has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

After using messenger with no problems for years, yesterday I tried to make calls (audio/video) in messenger and keep getting an error message that my "brower" doen't support them now. I have the latest verion of Firefox 78.02. Anyone else experiencing this?

It asks me to use either Firefox (which I obviously have, or chrome).

I switched to chrome and got the same error message when trying to make a call as well.

Thanks for any help.

It loads all the tools but the actual planning screen is blank. Used to work trying to see if it's being blocked for security reasons.

Tried refreshing my browser and trouble shooting but no luck.

When I opened Firefox I received a "news message" that makes no sense to me. How can I revert Firefox to its former usefulness? There is something about the former installation of Firefox being undisturbed, but I cannot find that installation. Apparently this has something to do with sync-ing my desktop Firefox with other installations -- I've less than zero interest in sync-ing.

What happened to the bookmarks I had stored in the bookmark bar? How do I get those back?

For about a month I'm unable to log into my Yahoo Mail account from Firefox on my Mac. All the proper screens appear and I fill them in, but when I hit "login" Firefox hangs. I see the circle thingy rotating indefinitely.

I know this is a Firefox issue because I can access my mail from another browser (e.g. Safari). I think it also relates specifically to Macs because I've never had this issue on my PC.

Firefox is the latest version (78.2.0esr (64-bit)). The Mac is a Mac Pro Mid-2012 running Yosemite 10.10.5.

Thank you!

My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.
