Since upgrading to Monterey, Google search pages show almost no text in Firefox. Google searches in Safari and Google Chrome are completely fine. Only Firefox is showing the problem. The blank text includes dropdown menus too - all options inside them are blank. Currently on Firefox v107.0, but the same problem happens with older versions.

If I go into Troubleshoot mode, the Google searches are working fine. I have refreshed Firefox, Cleared the startup cache. But the problem persists. I uninstalled Firefox from the machine, restarted the computer. Did a fresh download and install, haven't signed in so there are no addons/extensions to cause problems.

This is happening on both an Intel Mac and an M1 Mac running Mac OS 12.6 Monterey.

I attach one screenshot showing the same page with and without troubleshoot mode on. The second screenshot shows another page of results including what looks like weirdly encoded characters.

I've followed all the suggestions in the support page but nothing has helped. I'd really appreciate any advice on further troubleshooting. Thanks in advance for any help.

Screen goes black when some videos play - audio continues, but screen is black.

I tried to create a saved password for a site I need to log in to. The Create New Login form says "Make sure this matches the exact address of the website where you log in." I enter the exact address, username, and password and save it. But what shows after it is saved is a truncated form of the address. It lopped off the specific account ID information for my login page. So when I try to go to that site, my login page can't be found. Why can't the full address be saved?

I suspect that my bank tried to show a verification pop-up while I was on a third-party site, and because pop-ups were disabled the third party rejected my request. My question is:

How much of my bank's website address do I need to put in the "Allowed Web Sites - Pop-ups" edit box, seeing as I wasn't on that website at the time. Would "https://name-of-bank.com" be sufficient? Or, are wildcards allowed in the URL?

I have 16gb of ram.

When I start up firefox and have a couple tabs open, its usage is very low. But after a while it grows. Task manager ram percent used goes up, but it only says 1000 mb used. When I go into resource monitor, it shows much more. Once nearly 5gb, even though task manager was showing about 1 gb.

I'm on the latest version of firefox, I've tried restarting my computer. Ending the firefox with task manager lowers my ram usage significantly, nearly by half.

It doesn't really depend how many tabs I have open, as the tabs themselves don't seem to account for a very high percentage of the ram usage.

I only have a couple extensions, 2-3 of which are active.

How do I fix this?

Hi!

I have encountered this really annoying problem on my Firefox app. I give details below. I installed Mozilla Firefox on my freshly installed Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. I tried installing it from Snap Store. However, when I tried saving an image from the web (or, truthfully, any other file chosen by the "Save As..." selection), nothing happened, again and again. I tried many things, including following relevant guides from the internet, but nothing changed. The Firefox version is the 107.0.1 (64-bit), a Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002- 1.0. I, also, have to report some other things, as well. When tried installing the browser from the internet (I downloaded a compressed file, containing the executable), the same function seemed to work. I, now, use the executable to access Firefox. However, firstly, because other difficulties (not problems, but difficulties) arise and, secondly, because I'd really like ti use, mostly, snaps, I report this bug here requesting for help, as well.

Any helpful answer will be appreciated!

Thank you!

My problem is a new issue with Firefox and CenturyLink. I tried chatting with Century Link and they keep referring me to Firefox so here is the issue. In October I was able to log in to Century Link and view/download my current bill. This month when I try to view the bill all I get is a grey screen and no data. I have been forced to use Microsoft Edge which DOES allow me to view/download the bill. Also, the Chat feature on Century Link via Firefox does not work. It does work in Microsoft Edge. Something in Firefox changed in the past month and I haven't a clue what it is.

I am able to login to my account however my "primary password" was breached and changed. I am now unable to login to the browser and use my Bookmarks.

You'll know it has been breached because I have only used on password since I began using FireFox. As of January 9th, 2023 it has been changed to something new.

How can this "primary password" be removed or reset?

Some pages in Firefox are displaying 'Wingdings' instead of 'English' characters. This actually included the "Topic" selection in the questions page!!!! (see attached image) It does not happen on most pages, but some that I wish to use are affected. Some sites are partially affected with, for example, drop-down lists displaying incorrectly whist the rest of the page is OK. If I select the affected text and paste it into, say, 'Notepad', the test displays correctly. This only started a couple of months ago following an 'update' to Firefox. (not much of an update if it messes up the application)!!

My Windows Task Scheduler contains an entry called "Firefox Default Browser Agent". If I delete it, it returns. If I disable it, it re-enables itself. How do I NUKE this permanently?

I already have telemetry and automatic updates both turned off.

A related problem is that the About Firefox window keeps saying "Firefox is being updated by another instance", even though I always "Dismiss" the prompt to download the latest version. (I'm using v107.0.)

I am running MS Outlook 365 on Firefox. But the Outlook implementation does not fit in within the Firefox window so I have to move the slide to the left and right to either read the message preview or see the the buttons on the left or the complete list of emails. Changing the Firefox zoom or font size does not address it. Is there a solution? Thanks

After the latest version of Fire Fox was installed, my yahoo email no longer works as before. Emails show up and can be read but that's all. Can't delete, reply to, access contacts, settings etc. Basically everything along that line of functions is inop. When using MS Edge to access yahoo mail everything is fine. And, everything was fine with the previous version of Fire Fox. Can I go back to that previous version or can this be fixed?

Thanks for your help.....
