Hi, So I'm on Facebook. A friend has a new post. The post is all squished together, almost on top of the other line. I have looked over my settings to see if there is a way to alter the spacing but to no avail. I now realized why I stopped using Firefox a little while back and this is the main reason. If I can't read posts on social media apps on my computer browser what's the use?

Suggestions and fixes MOST welcome before I throw my hands up again. Edge is messed up in other ways as is Opera so I'd really love to have just ONE browser that I can depend on. Considering I used to be a HUGE fan of FF back in the day before the entire code was rewritten I'd love to be back in the fold. If this can be resolved I'll stay. For sure.

Thanks so much Richard

Your ads are all over my computer even in programs that are not yours. This is very intrusive and annoying. No one is going to look at these and one has to get rid of them to continue using other programs.

How do I stop these ads from coming on my computer?

I recently posted a question in - as I thought - the Mozilla community/support forum. I don't exactly remember the link I went to, but since I am logged in to my browser with a Firefox account, I could opt to log in to that forum with it, I didn't need to type my password, just click the button to use my existing account. So far so good.

I got an answer via e-mail. The email contained no plain link back to the post or answer. It contained a big green button "Mark as solved" and a link "This doesn't solve my problem", graphically positioned as to make it quite analogous to the big green button.

I didn't want to quickly mark the answer as either one, I wanted to go there to reply.

In the answer, however, the person answering me included a link to another post. I hoped that, clicking on this one, would - first of all - be of interest, and - secondly - lead me back to the forum in a neutral way so that I could find my own post there via my profile. Again, I clicked on a button to use Mozilla to login. Now I seem to have a second profile, the two are obviously not the same. Also, the forums don't quite seem to be the same. Support Mozilla vs Connect Mozilla. Why are they handled differently, why didn't I get the option to login with my firefox-account, when Connect Mozilla even gets my email adress automatically from it?

So, I had to try one of the buttons, they have different link addresses. I obviously tried the one that said "This doesn't solve my problem", and it plainly led me back to the answer on the (correct) forum and opened the replyform, also showing a button again: "Solved" and "This doesn't solve my problem". Why isn't the link in the email just labelled as linking you back to the forum, like "View thread" or "Reply to thread".

In addition I did not easily understand how to vote for the suggested idea in the linked post. A community manager had posted the reply that the post is now idea-status and that it is open to "votes (aka kudos)". No link or button to do it. Some scrolling around led my eye to an answer in the post to have one kudo, so I understood it had something to do with the like-button. Scrolled up to the original post, which did not have the word kudo on its like button, just a number. Hovering over it I finally got to know that I could give kudos by pressing this button. I got confused since several answers had this button. It was just a like-button to me, not the special vote-button that only appears if a manager opens the vote. Why is the manager text not just: "Vote (aka 'leave kudos') by clicking the like-button, which is now enabled."

I find the new Review Checker on Amazon marginally helpful - probably because my habit is to always look at most recent reviews of all rankings, instead of the path Amazon leads - to only positive reviews. However, occasionally the R.C. gets what I think is an erroneous result. Recent case was a Japanese stationery product (on the U.S. site) where all of the reviews were in Japanese. R.C. rated the reviews as an "F," I presume because R.C. didn't translate them. But Firefox could easily translate to English, and looking at them they seemed both authentic and positive. My real question is this: for a new, beta product I would think Mozilla would welcome some reviews of the Review Checker. I could find no way to do this. Hence - this posting. Suggestion - a feature on the still in Beta review checker to grade the check of the review.

I have no idea if a posting here gets to the right place, but if not I would appreciate a pointer to the correct place. thx, .

Hi! From some time now i have problem with GUI elements overlapping each other. It started with the window control buttons (that part, where you can close the window). Esthetics aside, it was not that big deal, so I just ignored it, but some time ago similar overlap appeared on address bar - so now I don't see what I'm writing. This is a big deal, now I can't really tell if I made a typo, I'm not able to correct it or I can't see if what I'm writing is mixed with original url, stuff like that.

I'm on Manjaro Linux and Firefox version is 127.0 (64 bits) I've tried to reinstall Firefox with different sources, like Flatpak for example, but the issues persists. Has anyone an idea how to fix this?
