Several websites I use frequently, including Facebook, the Macquarie Dictionary and even Mozilla's own support website, don't work properly with the new version of Firefox. I even had to use Google Chrome to access this support page, as I couldn't get past the login page using Firefox. When I first opened the new version, Firefox told me that I had to enable cookies for it to work. I went to Preferences and checked that cookies were definitely enabled. I quit and restarted both Firefox and the entire computer, checked that cookies were still enabled and it still doesn't work. Why is this happening? I don't want to change my default browser permanently, but I need it to work for me. Can anyone help?

Had this problem for a while. Didn't know how to describe the effect; Firefox renders PNGs as glitched tartan images => screen-caps attached. I'm running 90.0.2. I did a Firefox refresh - the problem still persists. Works fine on Chrome based browsers.

I've been directed to use a "Feedback" Tab on the Rakuten Kobo website www.kobo.com but I can't see it on my screen. I've tried turning off the Pop-Up Blocker, AdBlocker, and Privacy controls, all to no avail. It should be visible on the extreme right hand border, White Text on a Blue Background, reading vertically, thus: https://v2uploads.zopim.io/Y/6/g/Y6gwUmnu4OATxN3Tli4Av9bYN319BTdO/6721b8f79bda33aef0ca76f22893d4cd50d246b7.png

I'm running Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit I can see it if I use I.E. 11v0.9600.19596 (spit).

For some time now I've had problems with Google Shopping with Firefox. After clicking the shopping button, results are displayed for a few seconds. After that everything disappears and the website is empty. After reloading the page, something is displayed again. When I move the cursor over the pictures, everything disappears again. This problem does not exist with other browsers. Who has a solution? Thomas

When hit shift and click somewhere in the webpage or type something, the "Page Inpector" keep poping out (see attached screenshot), this is so annoying that I basically cannot type any capital letters. I have tried the option "Refresh Firefox", the browser seems to be set to default mode, but the issue still exsist. Tried for a new keyboard, the same. I searched the forum, but unfortunately cannot find a proper solution. Hope anyone can help me with this, otherwise I have to consider to change my default browser (which I really don't want to because of such a simple but annoying problem).

Thanks a lot for anyone could provide any suggestions !

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

My Firefox browser is constantly showing 1 GB of disk space used. I've set up automatic clear of site data and cookies. I'm constantly having to clear all data and then sign in to all my usual websites all over again. I'm not able to get onto my banking websites most likely due to this data clog. I'm SO TOTALLY tired of this constant cycle of trying to clear my data and accessing my usual websites. I'm using Firefox for many years without this trouble. I'm one week away from changing browsers. If I go to Safari I am not finding this trouble. Chrome is my next choice. I use my Mac computer for personal use only and my firefox is up to date. I'm using Big Sur on my macbook pro. What is going on?? Without a solution I'm out of here.

I use & want to continue using Firefox Password Manager but, since updating to Version 90.0.2 (64Bit), The "Please enter your primary password" window keeps opening about every 15 minutes (I have not timed it). I have already entered my primary password & used the auto login with several webpages. Then the login window will popup & I will have to re-enter the password before I can use the features. I am running Windows 10, with the latest updates installed.

Firefox 90.0.2 on Windows 10 was installed on 7/27/2021 which is about when this started.

Firefox is suddenly asking for master password twice, while running, not at startup. I leave Firefox running at night. I find two password dialogs when I log in in the morning. I'm not sure if they display at a certain time (e.g. midnight), or if it is a result of the system going into sleep and waking.

When Firefox starts or restarts, it displays one master password as expected.

I found this article from two years ago , but the "hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug" is not found in about:debug or in profiles.

I have not installed any add-ons recently. Last Windows update was KB5004237 installed on 7/18.

Is it Firefox? What else could be causing this problem?

Good day , For some unknown reason to me my HP printer will not connect to WI FI using Firefox but will connect if using Edge (which by the I hate and resist using at all costs) . I have tried trouble shooting to the best of my limited ability via HP and online , but to no avail. It was working with Firefox the last time I needed to use it, but not now. Hopefully someone can help me , but I have very limited computer skills and a lot of the short forms acronyms and computer gobbly gook baffle me . I ask that with any answer please .........KISS (keep it simple stupid) it . Please no one take offense to the term (KISS) , I did not come up with it , but it seems the simpleness has left the building these days.

Thank you Ken

I updated Firefox yesterday and since then everything in Firefox is blurry, except for some drop down menu's for some reason. Everything else is... I use two 4k 60hz monitors. On both of these they are blurry. It also seems like everything moves up and down a pixel when giving input (like keyboard or mouse inputs). I added an image of the blurriness. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Note: This is the only software experiencing this problem.

Best regards

As we all know the fullscreen mode does exactly what you'd expect, it makes Firefox cover the entire screen, including the taskbar. That's great.

However sometimes I'm running more than one window of Firefox and if only one of the windows is in fullscreen it will cover the taskbar even when I alt-tab to any of the windows that aren't in the fullscreen.

I'll provide a screenshot to show my case. And as you'll be able to see if I mouse-over links in the taskbar they're clickable, so the fullscreen window is still active through the area where taskbar should be once you're running a window that isn't in fullscreen.

That's quite annoying and gets in the way so I'm wondering is that an oversight or a bug (I hope it's not an intended feature) and is there a way to fix that in config or will I have to wait for the developers to fix this in a patch eventually, if they would even want to.

1. Search bar doesn't work for search. If i type anything, i.e. "firefox", it opens firefox.com 2. Settings > Search reveals that I have no search engines, and nothing is selected as a default search engine. 3. "Restore default search engines" does nothing 4. Removing all files related to word "search" in root directory does nothing, still has no search engines after restart. 5. Switching to new profile does work, default search engines appear and search bar is working fine. 6. As soon as I sign in my account and sync starts, profile loses all search engines and search bar stops working.

I believe my firefox sync account is syncing 0 search engines to my browser, and I can't add new search engines. I have Manjaro Linux and a Windows machine, both with firefox but using different versions. Both browsers lost all search engines after sync.
