Hi,

I have a problem with random "color blocks" appearing on the screen when using the Windows browser. They never happen with any other program on the computer so it is only an issue with the browser. These color blocks usually disappear when I roll the mouse arrow over the discolored block or reload the page. I have attached an image with an example, you can see the discolored black block when it is supposed to be all grey. I have tried both refreshing and reinstalling the software. The software has worked on this computer before. Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards, Magnus

When selecting "show all bookmarks", recent bookmarks cannot be located or manipulated. Why would "recent bookmarks" be hidden and inaccessible to me and not show up on the manage bookmarks/show all bookmarks screens? I would prefer to be able to move my recent bookmarks to various folders, and not only 1 at a time. Thanks for any help.

I have Firefox installed on an XUbuntu 20.04.2 LTS machine. preferences to "restore previous session" on startup. Intermittently, when I launch the browser, one of my windows has a very strange appearance (please note the general look of the window in the attached screenshot and ignore the "page cannot be displayed" message, as the screenshot was taken when I was not connected to the Internet.)

I have already tried reseting Firefox and that does not make the problem go away permanently; it always comes back eventually. (Note: I cleared cache before, and cookies after, taking the screenshot but before opening this support request. So the "troubleshooting information" attached reflects how it is after cookies are cleared.)

I recently downloaded Firefox in order to try to install it on a Windows VM. When I download the regular (online) installer and checked it with VirusTotal, one of the VirusTotal "engines" detected it as malicious. Therefore, I located the "offline" installer file on your website and ran it inside the VM.

A few minutes after I performed the installation, I got a "setup.exe" alert box saying "The system detected an overrun of a stack-based buffer in this application. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to gain control of this application."

Note: I cannot be sure this error actually pertains to Firefox (as it's a remote desktop connection to a shared VM so maybe somebody else was trying to install something). But the error did pop up shortly after I ran the Firefox installer. Also, this only happened once.

VM information: 4 CPUs; 16GB memory (1.28 GB active); hard disk 150 GB. Compatibility: ESXi 6.5 an later (VM version 13)

OS information: Windows 2019 Datacenter; Processor: Intel Xeon CPU ES-2697 v3 @ 2.60GHz 2.59GHz (4 processors) Installed RAM: 16.0 GB; 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.

In any modern browser, if you go to https://donotcall.gov and file a complaint about a harassing robocall, if the browser's "form auto-fill" function is enabled it will automatically "remember" the phone number about which you filed the complaint and save the robo-caller's number for the next time you use a Web form that prompts for a phone number.

My suggestion is that Firefox should not do this.

You might argue that I should address my complaint to the website's owner, but you all know it's the government and I figured that the Firefox developer community might be able to come up with a solution. Think of it as an improvement by which Firefox can be made "better" than other browsers.

I had to change my email. It got so I couldnt see what I had typed as the screen was unreliable and blocked by the keyboard frequently. My new email worked well for a week. Now it has relearned its old habits. Its unreliable, frequently blocking content on the screen, making the phone unusable for mail. I cant get the keyboard off the center of the screen. And it constantly reappears making use of the phone impossible. Everyone points a finger a someone else

The manufacturer of the phone blames my carrier who blames the software developer, who blames the updates and add ons. It has turned into a POS in one week. If I could find out who is responsible for this mess, I would gladly put a bullet in his or her head. Why cant I get the keyboard off my messages?

When I use Gmail in Firefox on Windows 10, the unread mails displayed with a bold font, render poorly in Firefox. The issue does not occur in Chromium based browsers. I am using a 24 inch Full-HD screen of 1920x1080 pixels. I tracked and tried a lot of solutions about using the Roboto font in Firefox, including installing the font in Windows 10, changing anti-aliasing for fonts in Windows and some more.

The solution was not there for me. Who can help me?

Hi,

In the context of an app using Pixi.js to render markers on a map, we have noticed that Firefox is unable to load SVG images from a data URL, as soon as they have a width/height in percentage.

Switching to a px size fixes the problem.

But what bothers me the most, is that this fails seems to be silent, there is no way to catch the error and bubble it up to the developer. So the image just never loads in our code, which makes the issue extremely difficult to figure.

See more information, and a reproduction with Pixi.js there: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/issues/7473
