Hi!

Updated FF on my Linux box today & now the NYT homepage can't be loaded. Altho' the WaPo homepage seems to load faster, the NYT just times out in mid-render, probably due to the site's heavy javascript. FF doesn't pop up any error messages, alas.

I'm assuming the new FF is simply allergic to the NYT's clunky code. But still. . .any tips, tricks, workarounds or hints to fix?

I have been viewing this website for years and, suddenly, this evening, the text in certain files on the website has changed to white text on black background, when viewed through Firefox for Windows on my Laptop.

Story files on this website are either in a basic doc format or in html. The html files are fine but the doc files are the ones displaying this strange change in 'behaviour'. Just for comparison, even though Firefox is my preferred browser, I tested the issue on Edge; the doc files, when viewed there, still display as black on white, as usual, so to say.

I have reviewed the web and found various things about Windows wide settings and also a post about the prefs.js file. The windows wide settings didn't seem to have any effect. I did the procedure of renaming the prefs.js file to prefs-old.js, which forced Firefox to return to default settings, but there was still no 'correction'. I also completely shut down the laptop and restarted; again no resolution of the problem.

Any ideas, please?

P. S. I have not added images, as the site is adult entertainment and therefore not appropriate to display on an 'unguarded' forum.

Hello,

Sorry if there is already a solution to my problem but I've searched for hours without success.

I live in France and I purposely set my system language to English to have everything in English but for some specifics french websites I want them to be displayed in french by default. (not all of thoses websites offers to remember the default language nor have a language switcher)

I tried all the extensions suggested on superuser.com but none of them work (anymore, I guess).

By memory I tried the following Mozilla Firefox extensions with no success :

   Language Switcher
   Language Switch
   Quick Accept-Language Switcher

Also, the point is to "remember" the websites and default language because currently I always have to edit the URL to replace "en" by "fr" and then reload the page.

   OS version : macOS Big Sur 11.2.1
   Firefox version : 86.0

The other workaround I have is to use another browser with the French language set as default but I'm really looking for a solution allowing me to use only one browser for personal web browsing.

Thanks and have a nice day

There is one menu short in a screen, when I use Firefox to my bank. The file "2021-02-14.png" is missing a menu with "Forbrugsoverblik Forbrugsagenter Etiketter" on black background. The file "2021-02-14(1).png" is the same <prt sc> but in Edge browser. The file "2021-02-14(2).png" is the same but in Crome.

The two last are correct with all menu'es. How do I get the same i Firefox? I have cleared cookies and cache without any result.

I can't send any links, because you need to be logged in.

For a long time now (at least a few months), intermittently and while browsing Google Analytics, I need to refresh every other screen because the tables on the bottom of the screen sometimes do not scroll down. Refreshing via F5 fixes this, but needs to be reinforced when the table is tweaked. It might go away if the table is completely changed by navigating to another report with another URL.

When this error happens, it feels like as soon as the page is loaded, the viewport flickers, and a second scroll bar pops up. This causes the long tables on the lower half of the screen to remain unscrollable, even though fully loaded and present.

As a curiosity, the "Take a Screenshot" option can scroll down the page (while saving a an entire page, or via the selection tool). Nohuman input can replicate this. I have tested Tab, arrows, Page Up/Down buttons, manually scrolling from either scroll bar or the mouse wheel from anywhere on the screen, search, etc.

I type in google into the address bar. Then press Ctrl+Enter to give it the ".com" at the end. The address bar changes to "google.com", but then redirects me to "excite.com".

But if I type in "google.com", it goes to "google.com".

"google" is the only scenario it happens to me. Why is it resolving like that?!

Hello everyone. I noticed a small problem on my own. When I open a channel on YouTube, the video that is on the main page of the channel I went to starts by itself. I know this is normal. But when I then go to another channel in YouTube, the video from the main page of the first channel continues to be launched. I went to listen to the radio on the channel, but the music and sound from the previous video got mixed, they started to sound together. I'm using Linux Mint 20.1 and I don’t know how things are on Windows. So I think the problem is hidden in the browser itself.

Firefox is up to date as are my video drivers. This issue only occurs on Firefox, playing the videos in Chrome or IE results in smooth and expected playback at all resolutions and frame rates (1080 60fps, 4k, etc).

When playing videos through the Firefox browser however, the video will stutter, repeat and recycle frames periodically, causing weird and unpleasant frame jumps. The audio playback does not seem to be affected at all.

I disabled the small number of add-ons I have and the problem still persists.

For the past few days, i haven't been able to get into my Walmart MC account. I've never had a problem using Firefox before. The log in page started loading, but stopped on a white screen and never completed. Walmart told me to check my cookies and java, and suggested i try using chrome. I went to the last option first and logged in no problem. I like Firefox better than chrome, so does anyone know what i can do to make Firefox work on the page?

I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox as my preferred browser and have generally been very satisfied. There is one issue, however, that is driving me crazy and has forced me away from the Firefox browser multiple times to find a solution. It is this: When I occasionally perform searches on webpages that use dropdown menus, only the first 20 (or so) items in the list can be accessed. I can scroll, but the scrolling stops before reaching the bottom of the list. I've accessed these lists in other browsers and I know they are longer, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what is limiting these in Firefox. I am using an iMac Pro running the Catalina OS and Firefox version 86. Any help at all would be very appreciated! I've attached three images from the same webpage and dropdown menu. Two are using Firefox (the second is after I've scrolled down), and the third is using Safari (which shows the complete list). I literally cannot scroll past the bottom of Image #2, even though in Image #3, you can see that there are 10 additional lines of options in the textbox.

Thanks, Jim Margetts

I recently switch from Chrome to firefox for my main browser, I really like it! However, I like to use a music bot to listen to music with my friends over a discord call. The audio I'm getting from the call is low quality (not choppy or anything but like, grainy? like you're using half broke old headphones) and I don't have a history of this happening. A refresh of the page didn't do anything. I'm assuming it's a firefox issue because this is the first time it's happened. Are there settings I can use to improve this?

Since the latest Firefox Update (Version 86.0), the Standard "Arial" Font has been missing from Google Spreadsheets (and Docs) and has been replaced with the inferior "Sans Serif". IIRC, this has happened once in the past (after a Firefox update), but was corrected after a few days. Is there any way to add Arial again or does one simply have to hope this issue will somehow be fixed in a future update?

I should add that this only does occur when using Firefox + Windows, any other combination (like with Chrome on Windows or Firefox on Mac) does still display the original font.

I recently attempted to log in to a credit card processing site with the username and password stored in Firefox. Firefox auto-supplied just my username, and when I tabbed to the password field to enter that info, the username disappeared. If I tried to enter the password and return to the username field, the password disappeared. The site naturally read this as an incorrect login attempt. Tech support for the site suggested this was a browser issue and recommended I switch to another browser, and they advised clearing the cookies and cache before each time I log into their site. Sort of defeats one benefit of having a computer.

I'm using version 86.0 of Firefox released 2/23/21 -- my last successful use of the site was 2/15/21 so I'm wondering if anybody else has seen this happen in version 86.0?

Hello. I hope someone can help me. For the last 3 or 4 weeks the Walmart grocery site is not working right. For anyone familiar you know that there is a little heart you click on for your favorites, and on the right side of the page is your items currently in your shopping cart. Ok, neither of those is working in Firefox right now. It is working fine in Opera but not Firefox which is my preferred browser. (I was using Opera for a while and one of their updates caused the same issue, they saw it about a week later and it works there now.) I have attempted several restarts with addons disabled. As far as I can remember the only thing that I have changed in about:config was "browser.urlbar.update1" (that has been changed for a long time) ...I went in and changed it back but that made no difference. Does anyone have any ideas? I really dislike having to open a separate browser for 1 site. I have attached a picture showing what I am referring to. Thank you in advance Kathy
