Clicking a Facebook or Instagram link in a Google search opens a new tab and kills the Google tab. Why? I have to restore the closed tab (and its history) from History > Recently Closed Tabs. This has not yet happened with any non-Facebook-affiliated tabs.

I know that Facebook is evil, but damn.

Firefox 92.0, 64-bit (This has happened in the last five or so versions.) Windows 10 Home, V. 20H2, OS Build 19042.1237, Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

Thank you.

My computer's date and time are correct but Firefox is using the wrong time in all sites (I can't identify what timezone it is). It's a big problem in receiving notifications. I already did the suggested solutions stated in some posts in this site but it's still not working. Even adding an extension doesn't make it right.

I've migrated to a new computer and installed the latest version of Firefox. I now get this persistent message when I try to access my email on Yahoo:

"The latest version of Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail". I then choose the basic Mail.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and once I move around folders for a while, (Inbox, Trash, Sent), Yahoo remembers and gives me the latest version.

How can I make this permanent?

Occasionally some websites will render a few icons of some particular type in a weird way. It's this crisscrossed celtic-looking pattern of yellow green and red. It's not a monitor or GPU issue, although does sort of look like my GPU is broken.

Here's an example. Curiously enough, this happens occasionally but here are some concrete examples where it ALWAYS happens. On 10forums, EVERYONE'S profile looks this way. https://www.tenforums.com/drivers-hardware/111899-stereo-mix-no-longer-appears.html

(look in pictures)

And so this didn't matter because this happened like once when I was doing a captcha, the whole captcha was rendered weird, and on tenforums. And almost never anywhere else.

But okay now it's a problem. A newgrounds game is rendering weird. (image attached) The boxes move around a tiny bit, they walk up and down.

I have to use chrome to fix this issue.

Anyone know I should do? I'm like 80% confident I've tried disabling ALL extensions but didn't fix the issue. I can try again if you really think it's important.

After the most recent update, currently on 92.0, the Minimize, Maximize, and Close buttons are invisible. They are still there and I can get the tool-tip if I hover over them with the mouse, but visually they are completely gone.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

I recently reset my computer because of performance issues. When relaunching FireFox, MSN is now my Home Page. I never selected or used MSN, but its there and I can't get rid of it. I have tried several times via the Settings tab, I have also tired on several occasions to drag a different tab to the Home Page Icon, but MSN just won't go away. I also tried to restore to an earlier version of FireFox, but no success. When working on the Settings tab, there is no "save" option. Is that normal?

For anyone who wishes to reduce horizontal spacing between bookmark icons in the horizontal Bookmarks Toolbar across the top of Firefox window (under the address bar), here is the code to add to userChrome.css:

/* Bookmarks Toolbar icon horizontal spacing */

toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:not(.subviewbutton) {

   padding: var(--bookmark-block-padding) 3px !important;

}

The default value is 4px. I changed it to 3px. You can change this number as you like.

Remember to save the css file, close and then re-open the browser to view the update.

There is also a way to play with this live if you access the Browser Toolbox: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Browser_Toolbox and access userChrome.css: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Style_Editor

Hope this saves someone the hours I spent finding this solution. Cheers!

My iMac died. I downloaded Firefox onto my replacement iMac and signed into Firefox Sync hoping all my Plug Ins and Bookmarks would propagate onto my ne iMac but they did not. I keep getting a message from Firefox to complete Firefox Sync by adding another device. I just want the set up from the Firefox set up on my iMac that died. Is there any way to recover my old Firefox info onto my new iMac?

Trojan description: JS:Trojan.Cryxos.6249

It was automatically deleted. No idea for how long its been there. could it have have done some damage unknown to my Antivirus ? How dangerous is it? Are there any further steps to take ?
