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 can't login to the NY Times website using Firefox. I'm sure I'm using the correct password because I can log in using a different browser. I don't save passwords in Firefox. I enter them manually or use a password manager. As I said, I'm certain I'm using a valid password. I've cleared the cookies and all of the items under History on the Settings page. When I close Firefox, nothing is saved. When I contact NYT customer service, I was informed that they've had a lot of requests for assistance from Firefox users, and nothing was out of order with those users' NYT login; the problem was with Firefox.

Please advise.

Hello,

the newest update to version 97.0 was run automatically. Afterwards the new print preview appears although I have it disabeled in about:config (print.tab_modal.enabled --> false). I cannot get rid of it. It is very annoying as I cannot print my labels with that menu and always have to click once more to do so. Does anyone has a fix for this?

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

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?

Hello,

I know that it's possible with Chrome, but I cannot do it with Firefox. Is there preferably) a trick to do it or any add-on ?

Access the history from a tab and then copy one of the link. It's very useful to keep current page open and paste old link (in a mail, a new tab, etc...).

History > Manage history doesn't show anything (but might be normal due to my settings).

Thanks !

So I am hiding some menu items like for example

  1. menu_find { display: none !important }

however though the menu item is gone how do I get rid of the ctrl-F menu shortcut...

I have many such menu items to remove so I need a generic solution to override the short-cut icons associated with the menu items I want to remove

When I go to https://squareup.com/login the entry fields do not appear in Firefox. It's impossible for me to access my Square account through Firefox currently, which I use for client invoicing. I have no trouble logging in through Chrome. Screenshot attached.

I have Privacy Badger and AdBlock installed for both browsers. I tried disabling them for Firefox just to see if that was the issue, but it made no difference. I am using an iMac running macOS Catalina version 10.15.7. My Firefox Browser is version 97.0.1, and currently shows that it's up to date. My Chrome browser is version 98.0.4758.109, also up to date.

My dad is almost 89 years old. He is NOT TECH SAVVY. I have him using a trackball mouse. His hands are HUGE and his fingers are numb.

Somehow, he is inadvertently adding bookmarks to the bookmark bar. I do not know how he is doing this but he'll call and ask me to "put Gmail back on the bar". When I go over, there are a gazillion new bookmarks which pushes his Gmail bookmark beyond the >> spot. I have to delete these umpteen extra bookmarks so that the Gmail bookmark is visible again. Yesterday, I decided to move Gmail to the far left, hoping these accidental bookmarks he creates won't push it off the bar. The bookmarks he "creates" are specific gmail conversations, or facebook pages, or Publisher's Clearing House pages (he LOVES PCH games and plays them constantly).

HOW IS HE DOING THIS? He doesn't know enough to click the star button. He doesn't know about using the Ctrl and D keys to create a new bookmark. It's driving me BATTY. I'm sure he's somehow doing this using his mouse (clicking both right/left simultaneously but not aware of doing so).

Thanks in advance for helping a daughter keep her sanity ...
