I am on a Macbook air running Firefox 109.0.1 with DuckDuckGo as the engine. This past week I've had webpages that I am using disappear leaving me with a blank tab. In the middle of the game or puzzle it just disappears and there I am with the Firefox logo on the page. The tab doesn't close, just the content is gone. The back button doesn't work - it's as if I have set a new tab. The two sites that seem to be disappear most frequently are: thejigsawpuzzle.com https://freeonlinemahjonggames.net/dogmahjong2.html both of which we have used for years without problems. It doesn't happen every time we use the webpages but at least once a day. We have restarted the computer and Firefox. This laptop is just a couple of weeks old, could that somehow be the issue?

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.

Hi

Firefox 109.0.1 (64-bit) Mac Ventura 13.1

Google search page and a lot of sites (not all for example this support page) are having trouble rendering fonts.

I have attached screenshots which demonstrates the problem. The thing I do not understand if I go to the developer tools and alter the "font-family" from "font-family:Ariel, Sans-serif" to just "font-family:Sans-serif" bingo the font renders, the screenshots show this.

Other browsers like Chrome are having no difficulties.

There must be something simple I am missing, I have done a search but nothing is standing out as a solution.

Help would be appreciated. Cheers

Several websites (not sure it's website-related) are displaying some (or a lot) of unreadable text. If I copy the text and then paste it into a page in a text program, it all reads fine. What could be causing this, and how do I fix it? (Screen shot is attached.)

I am not ultra-technical so please make response clear.

After restating my desktop Mac, all my stored bookmarks (100's) have disappeared. Following the instructions on the Mozilla Help Pages to restore bookmarks, I received the following response: "Unable to process the backup file". So how do I restore my bookmarks? I am also unable to add a new bookmark. What is going on? Also, why is History no longer being logged? Clicking on the History tab, no history is displayed.

I received 3 mails tonight that said:

Search results for your [edited from public] @frii.com account have detected that your email may have been exposed. We recommend you act now to resolve this breach.

I am checking to see if these 3 emails are legitimately from Firefox and if this has occurred, how do I act to resolve this breach??

And how do I check the status without clicking on the link in the 3 emails - or is it safe to click on the links to find out more information about the possible data breaches??

Thank you [email removed from public]

Hello, I had to reinstall MacOS. When I did, I lost my bookmarks on Firefox. When I opened the browser, a pop-up window asked if to import my bookmarks. Then I noticed the imported bookmarks were an old version from another browser. Is there a way to find my Firefox bookmarks and import those? Thanks!

My issue is that I have various devices on my network but I am unable to access them using username and password via a browser. for example I have a birdbox camera using 192.168.1.20, I am then asked for user name 'admin' password which is 'null' and on every device on network I am told that password or username are wrong. They are not?

I am using a dreytek router and addresses are bound in and on a mac. But it is the same issue on windows and any browser. could it be a router setting?

Thanks

As someone that uses the command line terminal a lot, I constantly find myself pressing the "tab" button on my keyboard when typing a URL in the address bar to accept the current suggestion and move to the next segment. For example:

  1. I want to go to www.example.com/segment1/segment2
  2. I'll start typing "exa" and since I visit this site a lot, Firefox helpfully completes example.com
  3. I would like to press "tab" on my keyboard to have Firefox complete example.com/ then I can type "seg" and Firefox could complete it to "example.com/segment1

I know I can do this by pressing the right arrow key, but that requires me to lift my right hand off to press it. I would like to be able to easily do this with the "tab" key which my pinky can quickly press. Pressing "tab" currently, has Firefox pick some complete url which I don't want, i.e. www.example.com/segmentA/segmentB

Hi All. Love FF but there's one thing that's driving me crazy... the different color of the Library window (see screen grab). The main window is this nice dark "cool gray" color, but the library window is this greenish color.

Is there a way to change that? I've had the userChrome.css file installed and feel fairly comfortable making code edits.

Thanks in advance.

Specifically this error message was just obtained on macOS Ventura 13.1 on my Intel based MacBook Pro using Firefox 109.0.1. It happens on all Windows machines I tried, on my iPad and iPhone.

I saw at least a million similar questions similar to this one, even more advices on how to address it - and no answer helps.
