Some fonts randomly use an ugly, blocky font for no reason. I've seen it happen on some web pages and PDFs but not on all. I have tried other browsers but it is a Firefox-only problem. It doesn't occur in troubleshooting mode as shown in the attached picture. Any help to resolve this would be greatly appreciated!

To resolve an issue that has been plaguing me, I did a clean install of Firefox. I followed some instructions I found on here that ensured that all I had to do was rename the existing Firefox folder to something else, download and run the installer again, and I should have done a clean install without losing my user data.

The issue I had has been fixed, but all of my add-ons and bookmarks are gone. I can get the add-ons back, but where can I find the bookmarks in the old Firefox folder?

With the last update I suddenly have the url/search box background and its search results drop down background set to an ugly pink with diagonal lines.

I am visually impaired and now its almost impossible to use firefox because I can't read the text on top of the diagonal colored bands. There doesn't seem to be any settings to turn on or off this appearance.

I will have to switch browsers until this is fixed and I don't want to.

After the Firefox update to 114.0.2 on my WIndows 10 desktop computer, the display of the Google Voice website became all garbled and vertical scrolling stopped working, making it impossible to read new next messages. My laptop, which has been turned off and has not taken the update, is still running the previous version and does not have the problem. I'm wondering if others have had the same issue.

Related to some personal SVG project files. Which are relative large files (containing lots of generated paths and other data).

On the largest of these files I spotted that some general svg-viewer failed with a "XML parse error: cannot load more than 200.000 XML elements" error message.

The same file, when viewed in Firefox (114~, Linux, Mint), also developed some odd hiccup that did not make sense. Unless ...

Is there a similar limitation active in Firefox ?

- I tried to see if "Inspect>Console" gave some potential related message on this. But spotted nothing out of the ordinary. - Searched developer.mozilla.org for any related svg data. But could not find any. - After ditching some data in the effected file, unrelated to the hiccup part, the hiccup disappeared. Suggesting I did hit some svg limit in Firefox. - File size: ~26.5MB. Number of elements: Other than more than 200.000, unknown at this point. (not sure how to count them at this moment either)

Firefox was working well on HTTP websites until a few days ago, but now HTTPS-Only Mode seems to be permanent. Despite changing settings to 'Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode', when HTTP sites are selected I get the same message as for 'HTTPS-Only Mode'. Also, if I select 'Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows' and add exceptions, I get the same result.

Despite trying to disable https mode, Firefox will not allow ordinary http sites to load. Consequently I can't access most of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (bom.gov.au) pages or any other websites that don't use the extra 's' but are still secure. Mozilla suggested switching from Strict back to Standard but I still can't access ordinary http sites. Can anyone help, please?

I recently noticed that in the settings it says "Your browser is being managed by your organisation". The certificate "ImportEnterpriseRoots" seems to be affected. I have seen guides saying to delete a registry key but I do not have a Mozilla folder in my policies.

It is worth noting I do run two anti virus software. Kaspersky total security and gridinsoft anti malware. Just wondering if there is a way to permanently remove this or if its just a side affect of my anti virus software.

Thanks

I've been having a weird issue with my text glitching only in my Firefox browser. Initially I thought it might be my monitor but then I realized the issue only presents itself in my Firefox browser. Literally no other program is affected.

I've done a reset, I've uninstalled and done a clean install, I've deleted all Firefox files and re-downloaded the browser. The issue immediately pops up again.

Hello! For some reason I can't add separate icons for extension quick menus to the address bar area and am only able to add the extensions "master" button which shows a list of extensions without going to the settings page. I've tried to go to customize toolbar to add the extension icons to the bar but none of them show up, and I know for a fact that the extensions have icons, I've added them to the bar on other computers.

Hello, I have two websites that I've designed with cursive fonts in some headers. Whereas they display in other browsers, they do not display in Firefox. I asked this question years ago, and to date, no one has provided an answer.

Not only do the headers not display the cursive font: savoye let and allura, what they show are enlarged and bold letters that completely destroy the design. Surely, there is a reason for this.

Here is one of the sites (the other is still in design mode): https://summitlighthousephoenix.org

Hi there! I am a long time Chrome user and decided to try Mozilla Firefox. I loved it and after a bit of tweaking, I run into a problem I can't deal with myself. In Chrome I loved auto fill options every time I needed the option for my home address, email address or credit card. In Firefox I just can't do it. The option is only available for Canada or SUA. Is there any way I can make it work? Of course, I looked for some add-ons and actually found several, but given the fact that auto-fill in my case deals with personal and sensitive data, I need a safer method. Is there any? Thank you!
