Hi @ all,

our website https://ana-dismissed.de/ is not loading in Firefox, or to be more precise it is loading often but on occasionally not reloading when refreshed. This only happens in Firefox, Safari and other Chrome-based Browsers don't show this, perfectly working there (as far as I could check).

I already checked Firefox developer tools, like console or resource loadings etc. There is no issue I can find. I'm completely lost, no hint at all, why this happens in Firefox only.

Please find a short video here: https://imgur.com/a/31XyiMi

I'm thankful for every hint into the right direction.

Best regards!

For anyone who uses Google Hangouts/Chat, they know that you can send screenshots to people and pictures you've taken. This used to work great, and as expected on Firefox, when you click on the image, it opens a new tab that shows the images full size (because in the chat box it's usually too small to be legible). Now, in a recent update (either 87 or 88), this functionality was broken. Now you can't click the image, it's as though there's no "link" to open the new tab. This works just fine in Microsoft Edge, so I know it's not a Google issue, but rather a Firefox browser issue.

Anyone know how to have this resolved, or to report the bug?

I had a crash on firefox, I easily fix lost sessions, when I got updates or crash that lose my active session.

When I try to retrieve my sessions by copying recovery.baklz4 or recovery.jsonlz4 both of them does not work. When clicking on restore previous session, firefox rezzes a few seconds, and then the restore session tab stays blank.

I tried: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html but the website does not succesfully recovers my firefox session and the tab just crashes, I did manage to convert it to a JSON file.

I did some work on the JSON file myself, through regex and jq tool. I extracted the urls from it. I scrapped my json to make it lighter (I think the problem is from the size of my session), I scrapped the "image", "scp", json objects, trimming the size of the file, it's size was divided by almost 20.

Is there a way to recreate a sane jsonzl4 file? I have the data.

What seems weird is that backups from a few weeks is only around 20MB and by adding a few tabs, it went from 20MB to 80-90MB it's freaking huge.

Is there a way to fix this? recreate a json file and then encrypt it to jsonzl4? What can I scrape safely from my session?

I have been trying to fix this for hours, please help!

Over the last 8 weeks or so, I have problems with Firefox displaying chess.com website. The problem is chess.com home page loads but the live play with 3D chess board page no longer displays the board fully (top edge cut off) & some other chess.com pages fail to load properly or fully (articles pages and opening analysis pages). I have cleared my browser history & tried reinstalling Firefox (& tried resetting my router) but with no effect. If I use an alternative browser chess.com site works fine & as a long time Firefox user I would prefer to continue with Firefox, but this issue means I will now access chess.com on an alternate browser! Any help gratefully received to help fix this, thanks, I look forward to a positive reply!

Hello,

Right now, my browser is formatted such that the tabbar is on top. This works fine but there is a tiny gap of a few pixels from the top of my screen to the top of the tab. This results in not being able to move my mouse to the top of the screen and selecting tabs. Is there some way to remove it so that I can select tabs even with my mouse at the top limit of my screen?

Also, when I have two or more tabs opened at the same time, the whole info bar (where the tab bar and nav toolbar sit) shifts downwards. For instance, when I have one tab open, the whole info bar is X height. But when I open a new tab, it widens to an X+ height. If I close this new tab, it will shrink back to X height. How can I fix this?

Thank you for you're help

Upon upgrading from FF 16 to 17, I can still drag the icon that's to the left of the url to the desktop (or even to the XP Quick Launch Bar, Folder Shortcuts, etc.) to create an internet shortcut to the current page. However, with 17 this method produces a shortcut that shows a generic Windows icon instead of a Firefox-page icon. Even though a generic Windows icon normally denotes "no program associated," these still open with FF when double-clicked. But it doesn't look right. (BTW, all the shortcuts created by this method in FF 16 or lower retained the FF-page icon with the upgrade to 17.)

Any ideas why this changed and how to fix it so it looks the same as before?

Pending resolution of this (and another issue) I went back to FF 16, and it works normally again. However, the shortcuts that were created while I had 17 still show the generic Windows icon.

fixed in Firefox 21 - locking this old thread

I updated to 17.0 today, and suddenly ClearType (what a joke!) is forced on, and I see no way to get rid of it. Seriously, ClearType is ugly and it makes it much harder to read webpages. This is the entire reason I refuse to install IE 9.0. Help?

OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit Browser: Firefox 17.0 32-bit Auto-updated 11/21/2012

ClearType was off in 16.0 and earlier. If it can't be turned I will have to revert.
