Hello,

I recently downloaded latest Firefox Developer Edition. While checking all its options, on General settings, I clicked What's New and it took me to New Tab. That's it, only New Tab, nothing else.

Thanks, Harish

OS: Windows 10 Pro

Version: 65.0b7 (64-bit)

After I upgraded my Firefox to 65 beta, the option in about:config, `gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode=5` seems not to be effective. Is the entry is now obsolete?

In the last 24 hours ish, of some sites I visit, Firefox comes up with 'Network Protocol Error' When I reload the site the error message goes away. It's not doing it on Google or Bing first time. The issue seems inconsistant too.... browsing to sites that caused the issue first time around no longer cause the error message to appear...... This issue has appeared on two desktop machines accessing the internet through same router/gateway with BT as the ISP.

Anyone else seeing this?

I experienced a Windows 10 bootup issue and decided to restore my Windows 10 OS from a (10-days previous) OS configuration. This corrected my Win10 boot issue, but when I ran FireFox it requested that I logon to my FireFox sync account to update my bookmarks. After logging in, nearly 4 years (hundreds) of well-organized bookmarks were gone and just a couple of bookmarks appeared.

I have a FireFox account with both my PC and Phone listed. When viewing the "FireFox Account" page, there doesn't seem to be anyway to view the state or status any files being maintained by the FF account. I am wondering if the the FF sync process somehow moved the few bookmarks on my phone onto my PC. (Note: I noticed my PC appears to be listed twice on the device list.)

I do have full backups of my PC available from a few months ago. So I either need to: 1) figure out if my "full" bookmarks set is recoverable from my FireFox account... or 2) I need instructions on how to bring back most of my FF bookmarks from a full PC backup from a few months ago.

Thanks for your assistance!

I love Firefox but updates are becoming annoying to the point of me not wanting to use it anymore.

It's bad enough there are so many updates, and it's bad enough that we have to mess about with CSS to customize Firefox, but having to redo the hard-gained custom CSS regularly leaves me speechless.

The CSS may be obvious to you folks, but for anyone not knowing the browser structure it's a time-consuming nightmare.

Rather than coming up with fancy new features a lot of people may not need anyway, please first make it more usable by adding options for features such as the tabs position and adjust the CSS behind the scenes.

Until yesterday, I could save images on the 9gag website as .jpg files, while Google Chrome saved it as .webp files. I preferred using .jpg. Today, my Firefix browser is no longer able to do that? Is there a setting in Firefox which will allow me to save files as .jpg instead of .webp? If not, then why was this feature removed?

Hello

I use XTM cloud, an online translation software which requires me to use shorcuts to navigate through the translation file.

I have used Firefox to access it for years without any issue but since Tuesday, after a mozilla firefox update, my keybooard shorcut don't work anymore which means that I can't work as the sortcuts are the only way to navigate through the file, there is no button or other way to do the actions, the support team for the software hasn't come back to me so I am hoping someone here can assist me.

Basically, all the shorcut involve a combination with the alt key, but since tuesday, when I press the alt key, I have the menu appearing or disappearing above my open tabs at the top of the Firefox window so I guess Firefox doesn't understand that the shorcuts are for XTM.

Is there a way to change that so when I use the alt ke, Firefox doesn't think I am calling for the menu bar?

Thank you very much for your help, it will be greatly appreciated :)
