I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

Since updating to Firefox 87, when I enter characters in a textarea, it gets minimized to 2px and maximized to max-height for each character I enter.

[ default textarea in Chrome ] <textarea name="template" dojoattachpoint="focusNode,containerNode" id="template" class="tempFldClass dijitTextArea" title="Comments" tabindex="0" widgetid="template" spellcheck="false" style="width: 99%; overflow: auto hidden; box-sizing: border-box; height: 38px; max-height: 38px;"></textarea>

[ default textarea in Firefox : height is set to auto ] <textarea name="template" dojoattachpoint="focusNode,containerNode" id="template" class="tempFldClass dijitTextArea" style="width: 99%; overflow: auto hidden; box-sizing: border-box; height: auto;" title="Comments" tabindex="0" widgetid="template" rows="3"></textarea>

[ Entering a character in the textarea in Firefox ] -height Value changes -max-height shows up with a 2px Value

<textarea name="template" dojoattachpoint="focusNode,containerNode" id="template" class="tempFldClass dijitTextArea" style="width: 99%; overflow: auto hidden; box-sizing: border-box; height: 57px; max-height: 2px;" title="Comments" tabindex="0" widgetid="template" rows="3"></textarea>


I've been trying to use userContent.css to workaround using a fixed max-height Value, but it's not working

I have read similar questions, but the answers are not helping me.

I have gone to options > Language and clicked on 'Check your spelling as you type'

I have downloaded a British English Dictionary

I've done the config: thing

But still it doesn't underline obvious spelling mistakes

like jfadskdjf sadj one!

And right-click doesn't bring up a dictionary option.

Please can someone help me out? Thank you  :)

Bonjour,

Depuis quelques jours, lorsque j'allume mon PC, je n'ai plus d'historique, de données, de mot de passe enregistrés sur Mozilla Firefox sans aucune raison particulière.

J'ai vérifié que le paramétrage n'indique pas de suppression des données. Je ne comprends pas et cela devient très embêtant.

Je vous remercie.

I just upgrade to 87.0(64-bit) for Windows 10. I had my home page set to StartPage search engine as my default browser, Now my home page does page does not display.

All bookmarks are intact and display correctly. When a bookmarked site is selected Firefox does not go to the selected bookmarked site Example I have ww.ibm.com bookmarked. When I select the bookmark Firefox does not change.

The Tools icon (gear on task bar) is not responsive and does not open settings

I can not reset the home page or access any other tools/settings.

I am downgrading to the previous version of Firefox.

In previous FF versions, all links would open in a new tab. In FF 87.0 Options, I experimented with various checked and unchecked choices, and checking the "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" causes the link to open in the current tab rather than opening a new tab unless the link is coded to open a new tab... I prefer to have every link open in a new tab.

Hi,

I've got a new workstation at work with Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox 87.0. I cannot see any web page contents in FF, whatever URL I navigate to. Each tab is completely white. Even the settings page of FF is empty. I'm not alone with this issue. See https://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/fi.../firefox-nicht-mehr-nutzbar/ , if you can read german language. On my older workstation with Ubuntu 18.04 too, but Firefox 86.0 all is fine with FF. Does anyone else have this issue knowing a solution? Or is it potentially a bug, which should be reported to Mozilla?

bold textGoogle translate web page text disappears when I get to the end of the line on the left hand side. I can still see translation on the right and if I keep typing it continues to translate. This does not happen in Chrome or in google docs and it does not happen on my other computer with Firefox. It has to be some setting on this computer. Any ideas?

[Solved] FF87.0 font issue

FF87.0 on Win10, all addons deactivated.

Hi, it seems that over night, the font of Japanese text in my MediaWiki has changed from [this](https://i.imgur.com/fxV9rMr.png) to [this](https://i.imgur.com/1uI9c1h.png). I don't know why, since I didn't access the server files or changed anything around.

Over the course of troubleshooting, I figured out that it seems like the monospaced font is at fault. So I tried to change the font Firefox uses for *serif fonts* to MS Gothic (instead of standard TNR). This is despite using *monospaced font* in my user settings on the wiki.

I also opened FF on my laptop where it is still on 84.0.2 and everything looks as it should, with the same standard settings applied everywhere. So I'm 80% sure the last FF updated changed something. The missing 20% are because I only noticed this yesterday, but the update happened four days ago, right?

Also, on the old FF the fonts used are Courier New and Microsoft YaHei. On the new FF it's Courier New and SimSun. In the settings I have "Fonts for: Latin" and the standard fonts, so I don't know where YaHei and SimSun come from. When I change Serif: TNR to YaHei, it changes from SimSun to YaHei...

Edit: This thread solved it, actually: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277075

Short answer: Add Japanese to the preferred languages, leave everything else as it is.

The problem has been going on for a few weeks now and I have the feeling the disfunction is related to an update. I tried whatever fixes I could understand in the troubleshooting guide to no avail (Clearing cache, reset firefox, ensure it's up to date, safe mode, disable add-ons, disabled security...). New pages will open and sometimes I get a partial download of a bannerhead but then the circle goes on endlessly. The download will stop and If I constantly refresh I might eventually get to the page. I checked with Verizon, my ISP, and they say they see no problem on their end. My Alexa got disconnected and I tried unsuccessfully, with Amazon assistance to reconnect it but whenever I connected it to my wireless, my wireless woould disconnect. Then if I tried to connect my wireless, the Amazon connection would disconnect. This has been going on for weeks and at the point where I feel my only option is to give up on Firefox cause of a sense that it's gone overboard with its security protections for non-ecperts on computers. I've been troubleshooting this for hours and hours over 10 days and I'm at my wits end.

I have an up to date Firefox andI'm operating a windows 10 computer.

Sometimes I get error messages. I've gotten this one: 502 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. The origin closed the connection. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner. If you provide content to customers through CloudFront, you can find steps to troubleshoot and help prevent this error by reviewing the CloudFront documentation.

Generated by cloudfront (CloudFront)

or (after about 10 seconds) 504 - Gateway Timeout

I've gotten one while trying to sign into Firefox to write this but can only copy one message. This one was different - not from CloudFront -- but it too said something about the site being too busy to connect as one possible reason for the failure.

Any possible explainations/solutions before I have to abandon the browser? I don't want too as I appreciate the security but if the price is I can't function on the computer what choice have I.
