There is a specific challenge that i am facing with Firefox and some of the solutions that i have tried is not helping me to resolve the issue.

What's the issue: There are double spaces issue in Firefox

Where is it : 1) Menu 1.1) It's in the Menu New Tab is seen to me as New Tab (more spaces are for demonstration only) 1.2) All the Menu items which have space are show with more then one space including

  1.2.1) File Menu -> New   Window (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
  1.2.2) Edit Menu -> Select     All (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
  1.2.3) View-> Page     Style (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
   1.2.4) All the rest of the menus where ever there is a space there is a double space

2) URL : I type something in the URL and they are double spaced "this is test" will look like "this is test"

   THIS URL looks to be double spaced on firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1338204?page=2
   like below

3) Numbers in the browser :

   Any number displayed is double spaced in the browser output (most of the times, most of the web pages)
   
   

4) Bookmarks : All bookmarks are double spaced

5) Settings:

Settings: I have tried some suggestions below and they did not work for me.

browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled is still set to false but seems to have no effect toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets=true browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled=false


6) Reference: I have tried some suggestions below and they did not work for me.

I have edited my Settings so that I do not receive emails for any Watchings, but it has been 3 days I think, and I am still receiving forum threads. I just now removed the DownThemAll Watchings thinking this is what I needed to do until I am ready to get back into the issue. How do I stop receiving forum threads unrelated to DownThemAll? Attached are snippets to show you what I have done.

Images in hotmail emails won't show

This problem cropped up a few months ago. I've tried several remedies suggested online after doing Google and Bing searches, but nothing that involved registry changes. The one thing that helped, if only partially and temporarily, was clearing out recent history, cookies and cache. (BTW, a cache-clearing extension I've used for years appears to not be doing anything.) Emails that arrived for two or three days after that displayed images. Then, no more.

Side effects of all that clearing out was several days of having to go through two-factor authentication on many sites and being bombarded with warning emails that someone logged in with my credentials, was that really me?  And, that last part kept happening on different devices I use regularly.

I have no such problem with Hotmail email using MS Edge or the Chrome browser. I have no such problem using Firefox with Gmail or Yahoo mail. I've used Firefox for many years and want to go on using it, but more and more I'm using one of the other browsers so I can see images in emails. It appears Firefox has a long history of this type of problem.

Any help will be appreciated.

I chose the option to open pdf files (for example) on Firefox. But Firefox first downloads them to my "download" directory and only than opens it with Acrobat. My "download" directory now is full with garbage files that I need to delete manually. Is there any good option how to disable this "feature"? I would prefer not to see all the garbage files at all.

I changed "browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel" to false. Doesn't work.

When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

thanks

For the past year or so i have run into certain fields that will not accept a paste, whether by right click or Ctrl-v, and the behavior is consistent every time i try on that specific website. For example, a payment section of our utilities where though i can Ctrl-v my routing number (also it can be filled by what i can describe as a saved autofill - when you click in the field and the entry appears just below), but i can not paste my account number into the account space by either method (right click or Ctrl-v - nor does anything show below the field when one clicks in it).

I have always presumed that this is an intended behavior by whomever coded the webpage for security, but i just plain old find it annoying. Any chance i am correct in that it is a coding option these days, and if so, is there any way to break it?

Thank you!

I canNOT access outlook.com (using Mac Monterey) - it was working a couple days ago and now all I get is a blank screen. I can access it using Chrome so I'm thinking this is a Firefox browser issue. I'd REALLY like to continue using Firefox but need to access it on the same browser I've been using.

HELP!!

THANK YOU!

FIREFOX AUTOMATIC CLOSING WINDOWS

Hi:

Why does Firefox 102.0.1 (Windows 11) keeps closing windows after a while (window inactive for an hour or so)? I have 25 or so windows opened (I work at them constantly, I need them all at any time / even after an hour or so , some of them have tabs) . I have plenty of unused memory , there are NO issues like responsiveness , no crashes, etc); but I can't find some of the windows after a while , some windows have several tabs so I have to reopen the windwos with those tabs again. I have clicked on each of the available windows just to make sure I haven't overlooked; but I know for sure some windows are missing. I have disabled ALL extensions (there aren't many) but that doesn't solve the problem. Is there a setting (about:config) to tell Firefox NOT to do that automatically? It is like it is "garbage collecting"...... ....also, why is there no more confirmation dialog window when closing Firefox with multiple windows ? I don't mean closing tabs , I get confirmation dialogs for closing windows with multiple tabs , just not when exiting Firefox with multiple windows. I do have the sessions back when I restart firefox but I won't mind having a dialog window asking me if it is OK to exit.

Firefox 103.0 - 64bit; Windows 10. Since Monday, I have been unable to download anything. The download starts and after a couple of seconds reports "Failed". I have tried starting in safe mode and it still fails. I've done a refresh to no effect. I also have another machine which has the same Firefox version and a copy of the profile but still runs Windows 7. No problem with that one....

Anyone got any ideas?

For the 2 weeks or so, I've been having an intermittent problem connecting to any Google services (Gmail, google.com, Google Calendar, Youtube). In gmail, it tells me that I'm offline or "Oops, error getting emails". If I browse to www.google.com, I just get a blank screen.

This seems to have coincided approximately with the release of Firefox 100, but I'm not totally sure it's related. If I clear all cookies and cache, that seems to resolve the problem temporarily, but it comes back. If I open a Private window or another container, that also seems to resolve the problem temporarily, but it comes back.

Other browsers work with no problem.

If I open a new container, it will work for a while, but eventually stop connecting. This doesn't happen with other websites. Only Google related websites.

I have tried doing a Firefox refresh, but that didn't resolve the problem.
