I just installed firefox on a computer using win 10, and for whatever reasons teh fonts are all messed up, some show as intended, others dont.

I have tried various fixes on here like changing the performance settings, sandbox security, refresh and fonts too.

None of these worked, see image attached showing what i have, Default font was Times New Roman, changed it to Arial,Verdana and calibri, none made a difference.

Some help would be appreciated.

Since update to version 81. a few days ago, my flash player ( adobe ) is not working properly on Facebook Farmville game. Page loads and prompts me for flash - but when page loads up it is way way oversized and unable to get it to normal size. Unable to play the game at all on Firefox browser.

I have spent a few days trying everything I could think of ( including re-installing adobe flash player). I have found no fix.  I now have to use my google chrome browser to play my daily game, of which I am not happy..  don't personally like google. 
Do you have any suggestions ..  or can I go back to the previous version of firefox, where I had no problem with flash player?

Cobbas. Why the **** don't you let me run addons on Mozzila domains? My computer has no mouse, and I depend heavily on Vimium-FF to navigate the web. Whenever I end up on a mozilla site (for example, this one, or the addons page), the browser arbitrarily decides to disable all my addons. what the f**k! Now I can't navigate the page at all! utter discrimination. plz help

We have a several web applications that are run in full screen mode. There is a menu at the top with links to different apps and a button to enter/exit full screen mode (keyboards are not usually available).

The issue is that if you use the button to enter full screen mode, then click on a link to another app, it exits full screen mode. It does not do this if you use F11 to enter full screen mode.

Is there any workaround to be able to stay full screen when clicking on links (all from the same domain) when you enter full screen via javascript?

Thanks! Joe

I'm using OpenSuSE Leap 15.2 , updated Firefox these days, and now when I click on the menu, it opens and shows up to the right, out of the screen (when maximized). Also when I hover over options close to the right edge of the screen, the bubbles show partly out of the screen, same as the main menu. I've tried Refresh, Safe Mode, downgrading to a previous version, but nothing helps now Mind the menu on the screenshot.

Any ideas?

best, Istvan

My control + F function doesn't highlight the search term once I've typed it in. Nor does "Quick find" nor "Highlight when typing". I click the up or down arrow, but no reaction - not even a change of colour in the find bar or "no results".

I've tried selecting and deselecting all the search refinements on the bar. Tried entering a term that's visible in the window. Tried disabling the extensions I've installed since this problem first arose. No highlights. And I haven't recently changed my preferences.

I'm running Version 81.0 (64-bit) Linux Mint 1.0.

As a developer who often has to access web sites on their servers when connected via RDP, how do I prevent FF altering http://mysite.local to https://www.mysite.local. It's utter madness this can't be switched off easily. A "Developer" setting would be great where you could just switch this stuff off.

Please advise.

So Firefox shows site status indications in the lower left corner. I don't know the technical term, since it's not just the one site I've allowed to send notifications. On some pages, these contrast with the background. So these flash as the page loads, and they can flash again if the page tries to load something new every 30 seconds. I am photosensitive and flashing can hurt and I want to either block this or find some way to reduce the contrast, such as showing this in a continuous bottom panel.

Is there any way to block this? And what are they supposed to be called?

In order to handle downloading PDF files, I have the option set to 'Always Ask' under Firefox Preferences > General > Applications > PDF. However, when the dialog opens, if I chose 'Open With Firefox', the file is automatically getting downloaded to '/Users/<UserName>/Downloads/' directory. Can I instead change this location to some temporary directory, so that I don't have all the files opened within Firefox to be downloaded to 'Downloads' directory requiring additional management.

Why was one of the add-ons able to take over control of the entire browser and add-ons in it and establish its own rules? At the same time, it deleted all history and open tabs and my profile (firefox) did not save anything and did not restore the current session after reinstalling the browser, although it is worth remembering the current session and tabs there. I tried to remove this add-on for a long time, but it blocked all possibilities to do it. The browser began to open with one tab with an incomprehensible address, which was not even displayed correctly, and any attempt to search for something led to the opening of an incomprehensible search engine, but it was possible to go to Google. I don’t remember the name of the search engine, alas, it was several months ago, there was still no time to write to you. Oh yes, on the screenshots everything is in Russian, I'm not sure that you can fully understand them, and if so, write to me about it and I will try to translate the key positions. I would be glad to hear at least some thoughts on this in my profile mail. Here are some screenshots:

Hello

I have a keyboard that has these functions buttons with functions with them, such as increase/decrease the brightness and volume, etc.

Anyway, when I happen to increase the volume using these keys, I get to see the volume bar in the top left side of the screen, since I am using windows 10, and I also happen to see the wider and bigger box saying "Firefox is playing me" which also has a pause/play button within it.

I want to hide this big box, how ? I remember it sometimes showed before sometimes not, anyway I do not want to see it each time I use these keys for changing the volume.

I use Firefox Enterprise on both Windows and macOS, this alone is the single reason why I gravitate towards Firefox the most, it might be even my main browser, I really don't know which is since I have at least 2 opened at any given time, normally 3 or 4. The best part of it is that I don't have to set it up, it's all done. I use Firefox Sync just in case I use Firefox somewhere else, like a phone or Linux, or to push a page to another device (really, it's pulling the history bc push has never worked) but I can live without it.

When I use Firefox on Linux though, it's a night and day experience, it feels like I have to setup Firefox from scratch even after logging into Firefox Sync, it's only synced selectively mostly cares about useless stuff or stuff that I wouldn't let the browser save, like passwords, partly (but very little) because of privacy but mostly because I use a ton of browsers, I can't micromanage each. I even disable all of this via policy and that's what I'm looking to do, find how to deploy policies on Linux clients. I assume is just a config file like the preference list on Macs, even if it's not automated it should be easy to make available centrally a pull it on demand and drop it in the right place with some script but I have to find how's it done first and what settings will there be supported, none of that available in the documentation of Firefox Enterprise.

Fedora Server 32 now comes with an easy GUI for 389 DS (not FreeIPA for some reason) and a deployment tool for desktops both as Cockpit modules, which is also the GUI used by Red Hat in a lot of their products, OpenShift for instance. I wonder if I could use this to deploy Firefox settings. It even connects to Active Directory out of the box, if it could only process Windows policies... anyway. Is there some obscure documentation, maybe in beta, that goes over any of this?

Thanks.
