I use the userChrome.css file to take the search bar from the bottom of the screen and have it float. Here's the instruction that I use ... .browserContainer > findbar {-moz-box-ordinal-group: 0; position: fixed !important; }. Firefox 107 has made that .css instruction non-executable. If I text out the instruction I now get the search box at the bottom of the screen. I want it back to a floating search box. Is there a fix in 107 so I can use my .css file or is there another way to get the search box floating. Regards

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

Is there a preference in about:config to fake or simply block websites from reading the font-list of my operatingsystem? I think it is pretty ridiculous anyways that websites can access this information since it has nothing todo with the webbrowser visiting the site but going beyond to spy on information that i consider private.

Same question goes for audio-readout, is there a pref to fake or block?

Firefox creates almost 200 processes on exit, 100% CPU

Hello,

When I close Firefox after the last update (current installed version: 112.0 x64 Windows 10), Firefox creates almost 200 processes (in the latest case 177), each using from 17 MB to 65 MB RAM (except one that is using over 200 MB - I guess the main one) using 100% CPU for about half a minute, and in that my PC is unusable - everything hangs. It takes a bit more time to close all of them.

Any ideas what could be wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you.

I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

https://www.cibc.com/en/journeys/new-to-canada.html

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Thank you

I love Firefox!!! But ..

After I updated I an no longer see the bottom 20% of the text in my All Bookmarks->Bookmarks toolbar where my toolbar only displays the text of the drop down name.

It seems to be a recurring issue where new versions really mess up the spacing in the drop down menus of the toolbar mostly (not this time).

My menus are just Perfect now .. although I'd love for the menus shown in the 'manage bookmarks' window to have Exactly the same spacing as the Firefox toolbar menus (the 'manage bookmarks' window has Much larger spacing and is a bit of a pain to use due to this).

Here's my no doubt primitive userChrome.css

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, 
menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {
  padding-block: 3px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */ 
  min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;
}

#placesList treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text {
  font-size: 11px !important; 
}
#placesList treechildren::-moz-tree-row {
  max-height: 10px !important; 
  padding-bottom: 0px !important;
  margin-bottom: -3px !important
}

I just downloaded the lasted "update" and suddenly EVERY SINGLE WEBSITE I visit, INCLUDING FIREFOX, is giving me a security error:, Secure connection failed, Firefox did not connect.

This is obviously something in the latest download, because the exact same sites have no problem when i open them in Chrome. In fact, it's the ONLY way I can post this problem, because Firefox is preventing me from accessing the Internet entirely.

Please fix this ASAP, or I will have to move permanently to a new browser. I can't afford this kind of disruption to my work.

Starting this morning I suddenly cant delete or mark emails as read in Outlook.live.com. Even if I open an email, and it appears as read after that, if I refresh or leave the page and come back, its marked as read again.

I tried dropping all add-ons (a kill switch to drop all add-ons and re-activate them is still a feature I feel Firefox needs, I have to click every single one of them every time) to no avail.

I was in the process of writing this question on the Microsoft forums (which is usually like whizzing in the wind) when I thought to try a different browser. I had zero issues and Outlook.live.com worked perfectly normal on Microsoft Edge.

This HAS to be a bug in a recent update in Firefox

Got up this morning and FF said all my tabs were crashed - GAH! Could not open ANY new tabs, not even a blank tab, without getting this message. Clicking on restore tabs did nothing. Closing & opening FF did nothing. Cleared startup cache & uninstalled ublock origin (the only extension I had) but that did nothing. Refresh firefox did nothing (except lose some of my preferences). Went to about:crashes and all it says is "No crash reports have been submitted." Every other suggestion I found online was beyond my comprehension. FF DOES work in troubleshooting mode only, but I lose some important functions in that mode. I've been using FF almost since it was born and have NEVER encountered a problem like this before. I hope someone can help!

Hello,

I'm trying to access the following URL: https://archive.vn/QzWMe

When I do that, I get a page entitled: Secure Connection Failed. The page looks like the image I uploaded.

I've been all over the internet looking for fixes, but none are working for me. Incidentally, when I try to connect to this website (it is an archive of a Wall Street Journal page) using Edge, there is no problem; the page displays right away.

Is there a way to use Firefox to read this page?

Thanks for any help.
