I cannot make calls via Firefox on Facebook Messenger. In the second window that normally loads tells me that something went wrong. (in Dutch tells me "Er is iets fout gegaan" This happens on both my computers, Windows and Linux. Even when I start Firefox in troubleshoot mode it is still not working. However works absolute perfectly in Google Chrome. The problem started today by my knowledge for no apparent reason. I tested the camera in Firefox, works. I tested the microphone in Firefox, works, no problem. Also I granted Facebook permission to use the microphone and camera.

After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

So far I have tried everything possible, clean reinstall, reboot machine, safe mode, turning off hardware acceleration; issue stands that cursor is in consistent flickering mode and completely vanishes when stopping moving cursor, as if its default state while firefox window is active is to be "visibility:hidden" and tries enfocre it as much as possible when moving; system: windows 10 issue started very recently,. when firefox crashed and crash reporter rebooted browser, as if something went completely broken for specifically firefox deep inside system (yes I also purged all mozilla related stuff from registry when clean reinstalled)

Hello, in summary my scenario is written below; Earlier when someone used to call me on Facebook Messenger, I could see someone calling (the messenger call sound and interface appeared) and receive the call. However the problem now is, this whole feature is gone JUST for FIREFOX. I tried checking on Opera, Edge and Chrome, all works fine. Only on Firefox this is gone. So now I have to rely on my android device to attend this calls which is too much problematic as I mainly work on a PC. Can someone please find me a troubleshoot to this problem? Thanks in advance.

On the Homepage or new Tab page, we can choose a search engine to search with.. but instead of searching through the search engine it auto moves your text to the URL box where it then takes what you search and links it with webpage history and as you quickly hit Enter to submit your search, you get some random webpage instead of that you search for from the URL auto-fill. AT LEAST add an option to the Home Settings to turn this manipulative setting OFF. I asked for help before about this and got a manual config edit that ONLY works for non-Private browser and doesn't remain through updates.

Can you tell me why One Drive won't open using the Outlook App Launcher? Microsoft is done with me, since One Drive runs for me in Chrome and with a direct link. But I usually access it through the App Launcher (nine boxes in the upper right corner of Hotmail/Outlook). What happens is this: When I select One Drive, a new tab opens, the status wheel turns for about a minute, then it stops on a blank page, no explanation or error message. (I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10.)

As of 16 August Firefox Development Edition continually crashes.

Firefox standard is fine.

Tried the following 1. Shutdown and restart 2. Refresh 3. Uninstall, download and reinstall (4 times) 4. Chkdsk /r with restart then uninstall and reinstall 5. Open in troubleshoot mode 6. Tried incognito window 7. Tried disabling AV (Eset)

No change other than when the crash happens. Initially it would require opening a few tabs and browsing - now it crashes on startup.

Given that no other applications are behaving adversely, that Firefox standard works, that this was working find until 12 hours ago - my suspicion is it is something to do with the Developer edition.

Any other suggestions welcome.

Hello,

Since the last update, I've been having an issue where after about an hour or two of using firefox (it varies), video players on some websites will stop working. I've noticed that Tumblr and TikTok's video players are affected by this. Restarting firefox fixes it, but it's very annoying to restart firefox every couple of hours, and seems like a problem.

The following things didn't fix it: clearing my cache, disabling my addons one by one, turning off hardware acceleration, trying to watch the video in a private window, or reinstalling firefox. I don't know what's left to try.

Please advise, thank you!

Starting yesterday, the preview images in GIS has been looking off center in Firefox (see attached). If I switch to protection mode the image looks fine. If I open up in any other browser it looks fine as well. I have already cleared my web cache and cookies, refreshed Firefox and then reinstalled it, changed my screen resolution settings, and nothing seems to be fixing it. There's no apparent settings in Google itself to adjust the image...it just started doing that in Firefox out of nowhere.

This is related to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409

I´ve found out, that this Workaround seems to no longer to work since Ver. 101.0.1 (last working Ver.)

This is especially regarding Downloads triggered out of the embedded PDF Viewer in Firefox, when You click on the "Download PDF" Symbol.

Until this Ver. You could still bring back the "Choose What you want to do with the file" Window if You set the mentioned about:config setting to false (linked thread above).

I see this actually as quite crucial and almost a bug, since You will have departments with Workflows build around this. - Thank You for any insight or help

I am pasting this video link first to show exactly is happening when I use Google Images Search results. https://youtu.be/HD-GPkORQPA

This happened suddenly. Everything was fine when I last used google image results, I was playing a game and when I alt+tabbed to search for something, this was happening. I have no idea what could have caused it since I didn't install any new extensions, CSS styles, programs in my PC nor any big changes that would give me an idea of where to start.

I already tried disabling all the extension and that didn't help at all. The only way I've managed to make this stop, was when I opened a private window. There the image search results were fine and I could zoom in, and out and no weird scrollbar issues were happening.

I went back to a normal window in Firefox, and noticed that if I log out from my Google account, this will also fix the issue. And when I logged back in, the issue was happening again.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen, and how I can fix it? Thank you!
