I have a custom font installed on my PC (Karla), after every reboot of my PC Firefox is set back to default fonts and Karla no longer shows in the list, it will show back up and automatically set itself to Karla once I re-install the font.

layout.css.font-visibility is set to 3 privacy.resistFingerprinting set to false

Is there any solution to this?

I am repeatedly kicked out by YouTube, because I seem to have one or more ad blockers active. My problem is that I even don't know where to find them, so that I can deactivate them. I have tried earlier to find a solution, but to no avail. Apparently there are more people having this problem.

I am now forced to watch YouTube on Edge, which feels like treason, because I am a Firefox user for many years.

In case you would have a solution, please don't bombard me with geek talk. I am an IT layman.

Since "Flash Player" has been discontinued by Adobe since 2020 - and by force since 2021 - what is the solution? Yesterday, it told me I had 20 "tabs" open in Task Manager - but I clearly had less than 10.

The problem here is... my fan gets loud because of this - and that is very frustrating at night. Watching a video, and then hearing a storm brewing, right in your ear.

I've attempted Fan Control software, but it's way too complicated for my capabilities. It seems to do barely anything, unless you have a specific set of hardware - and a certain amount of know-how.

Ps. I am referring to the thread, created 6 years ago, here on the forum. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223023

Hi, I have a disaster situation. I backed up my profile and then I wiped my computer running Ubuntu 20.04. I replaced it with Ubuntu 24.04. Now my profile seems to not be compatible with the Firefox installation on Ubuntu 24.04.

I followed this official instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

I put my old profile in the ~/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/ folder and I set the correct values in profiles.ini. But sadly when I start Firefox all my passwords, extensions and history are not there. I lost everything.

I'm super desperate. Please tell me I can fix this somehow. Why is the official documentation lying?

I am on a Windows 10 Pro PC 64 Bit OS with 16GB of memory, running Bit Defender Total Security. I have used Firefox for many years and have never had a problem The browser is version 128.0.2 (64-bit). A few days ago in the application menu told me there was an update and said to install it because it couldn't check for updates. I downloaded and installed it three times now, but the problem still persists. My Bit Defender also keeps popping up messages telling me "firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to aus5.mozilla.org. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one." I have had over 2000 of those messages in the past few days.

I have never had an issue like this before. Is there a glitch in the most recent update? What can I do to fix it outside of resetting my browser, which logs me out of my google accounts and causes me to not be able to get back into them.

Background tabs triggering master password popups

I have a lot of tabs open, and I don't know which are responsible for the popups. Previously, I'd get 2-3 unexpected popups per day (that were not triggered by navigation in visible tabs), but since yesterday, every ~10min I'm getting 2 popups right after each other.

How do I find out what tab is triggering them?

Besides the annoyance, I find it worrying that firefox apparently "intends" to input login details into background tabs - if I had entered my master password previously, I wouldn't even notice that the password store had been accessed.

It would be really nice if the master password popup had a button to view the triggering tab (and perhaps highlight the fields that would have been filled after unlocking), but until that happens, I really need some way to locate the problematic tab(s)...

I run Firefox on two windows machines, with identical settings and extensions - I regularly sync across them, and have all my passwords saved to a local file, just in case. Recently, one machine (the only one with Win11) has begun disconnecting me from Mozilla every time I close Firefox, and wiping the saved passwords. I have to sign in to Mozilla and import all the passwords every time i reopen Firefox. I have tried all the refresh, reinstall options and nothing seems to fix it. Any ideas what's going on and how to fix?
