Running Linux Mint Mate 19.2 on two computers. Starting about 2 weeks ago, when trying to sign into providencejournal.com (with a paid subscription) using Firefox 97.0.1, just one of the computers displays an error message, see attached. We have used that site for years without issues, and the other computer still signs in correctly. On the problem computer I have just installed the Opera browser, for test purposes, and with Opera the sign-in succeeds. In F/F, I have tried disabling extensions, allowing all trackers and cookies, and reinstalling Javascript, all to no avail. preference is to use F/F, can anyone offer a solution?

I have two PDFs that I designed and uploaded to our website, but the headline in both displays with clipped characters in Firefox. Different fonts were used in both and the issue is the same. I even tried adding more tracking then re-uploading, the issue persists.

I checked in other browsers and the text displays as intended. The attached screenshots show the issue in Firefox, compared to how it should look (viewed in Chrome).

It's only this one line of text that is affected and I don't know why.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro and Firefox 97.0.1 I do not want the Firefox icon on my desktop (I already have it pinned to my taskbar). I delete the shortcut, but it reappears each time I log in. Removing it requires me to have a coworker with admin privileges come supply a password - it's not tenable for me to keep bugging her every day. I cannot find the setting to suppress the re-creation of the desktop icon; where is it located? I prefer Firefox, but if there's no solution to this I will have to uninstall it and switch to a different browser.

I use Facebook for many years. Last time used it was 12 hours ago. Then, 1 hour ago, Firefox did not start, all I was able to do was to exit (option inside a small Firefox Problem Window).

I downloaded the installation files, and re-installed Firefox. It started with the two Firefox Start Pages. But I expected to see all my tabs and browsing history and plugins.

So I copied the files from my previous profile into the folder of the newly created profile after I deleted the new profile files. But now, when starting Firefox, I get again a small window with the option to create again a new empty profile or just to exit. It says I would use an "older" version of Firefox and this could destroy my profile.

What must I do to get back all my tabs and plugins and all that?

I am a bookkeeper and work in QuickBooks Online ALL DAY. I also have many Google email and drive accounts open as they contain the data I need for QuickBooks.

Ever since the last update, Firefox crashes 2-5 times per day. I always report it. I always explain what I was doing.

It is still happening. Please let me know if there is a fix for this (besides not using Firefox).

Some websites add some annoying animation effects into their website's title (that shows in the tab title).

Example: This website: https://colourpop.com/ If you switch to another tab for several seconds, it starts flashing a message, "Hey, where'd you go?". I'd like to be able to disable this and any similar animations that can potentially be added to a website's title. Is this only possible by disabling some scripts and/or using UBlock, etc, or can I do this within Firefox?

Thank you,

Rebooted my PC.

When it restarted, Firefox had reset all of the settings and disconnected from Sync (though my account was still signed in). Bookmarks, history, etc were retained. This can happen with updates, and I understand.

No websites outside of Mozilla.org domains are loading. My VPN is not enabled, and other browsers load perfectly fine. I'm not using a proxy.

Plugins seem to not be functioning. On the toolbar, only a couple show up. The rest are blank icons, and can not be interacted with (either nothing happens, or a shadow of an empty menu appears).

Going to fully reinstall, because... why not, at this point, but this is not a good issue.

In earlier versions your print dialog box could be disabled with "print.tab_modal.enabled + true. In my Firefox version 97.0.1, that is not effective. PLEASE go back to allowing users to disable the Firefox print dialog box. It is clumsy, retains print settings that have to be changed each time a different document has to be printed, and creates a number of steps and wasted time for people who must routinely print from Firefox.

Why would Firefox go the way of other software companies and have no one to contact about this other than community (no offense to the "community") and disable the option to remove the Firefox print dialog box? None of this is the user friendly Firefox I have come to know!

I've recently started having an issue with FireFox, every once in a while, a task for FireFox would open on it's own in the background, and it would be using 40% to some times 70% of my CPU (Ryzen 5 2600), the task would open even if firefox was fully closed and I hadn't opened it in a while, all of the sudden I just see a task even tho FireFox is closed, I've tried ending the task many times, it just reopens around 20 mins or so later on it's own, what is this task and why is it using so much of my CPU? I've listed a screenshot below of the task in the "details" tab of task manager, can anyone help me?

Hi, Firefox is displaying letters with accents (e.g. letters from Spanish words) incorrectly as Cyrillic letters. This makes a lot of webpages difficult to read. This does not seem to be happening all the time. Neither does it seem to happen in other apps other than Firefox. I have my preferred languages for displaying webpages in Firefox set as En-GB, en, es-es, in that order. Ditto for my wider system settings. In terms of my wider system keyboards I do have Russian installed, in order of preference this is gb > us > es > ru. I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to ensure Spanish and other Latin letters display correctly?

For well over a year, after one of the updates, I cannot access my bank account; however, Google Chrome give easy access. I'm using Firefox 97.0.1. Bottom line: after over 10 years of using Firefox to do my banking, I now have to go to another browser to do it. Is there some kind of solution? Why does Google Chrome work and Firefox does not work?

On safari: sign in for CCSF works with ID box and PW box. On Firefox: sign in only has ID box and no PW box so I can't sign in. I called IT at the college..they can't figure it out. There must be a formatting issue with FF since it comes up fine on Safari.

What do I do? Thanks. Jan

How can I transfer bookmarks from a pc to an iMac? You should have a button to click on that prompts you to put in a thumb drive and it automatically copies bookmarks and you just have to transfer it to the other computer. And why can't you customize bookmarks with different colors and fonts? It would make it easier to find what you're looking for.
