Hi, I hope you're having a wonderful day, and I hope someone can help me with this.

3 days ago, I accidentally press a hotkey, then the web page becomes smaller, and has empty space around it (screenshot: https://ibb.co/RQ74q3Z ). I attached the screenshot below, too. This doesn't affect other web pages. When I open the same page from my other computer, it happens the same way. I tried [ctrl +] and [ctrl -], but it only changes the font size and doesn't make the space go away.

Thank you for your help.

Hi, I am not sure what happened, I have been using FF for a long time with no problems. Everytime I load up firefox, it has erased my tabs and I have no history. Upon uninstalling it and reinstalling for some reason the "history" comes back, but after the next shutdown and restart, it's all gone again. I am unsure as to why. Also when I log into my FF account, my computer I use while working doesn't sync to this one either. I am confused more by the tabs not reopening and history disappearing than the sync. Under options I already have it ticked to remember my tabs. All Plugins are uninstalled now and still doesn't fix it Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I just signed up for Firefox Monitor. Most of the accounts it says were breached are ones I recognize, and I have changed my passwords. However, it also says there were data breaches affecting two sites I do not have an account with at all (Whitepages and Verifications.io). What do I do about those, since I haven't got an account (I don't even know what Verifications.io is), so I don't have a password to change.

Hi

I am busy setting up GPO for Mozilla Firefox after my client did a security audit.

So on the GPO I see that everything Applies to Firefox 60 ESR or later, does this mean the latest version of "normal" non ESR Firefox will also work?

Thanks

I can login to this forum (and post a question). I suspect that it's because my e-mail is so very short (7 characters) that some reg-ex filters think it's not valid - but it is. When I enter my e-mail in the login screen, I always get a red suggestion for another domain, but my e-mail ends with just "c.dk" which is valid, and having just to characters before the @ makes the e-mail address very short.

Firefox is running slow across all sites. I've followed all the troubleshooting steps with any significant improvement. Running in safe mode has no effect on the speed. Pages take 10 to 15 times as long to load compared to Chrome and (the new) Edge. I've included the troubleshooting results from the help menu. I've been experiencing a slowdown for several months, but it's gotten so severe I find myself using Firefox less and less. I've used Firefox forever and don;t wish to give up on it, but the slow response it really becoming a problem. I hope you can help

Looking in browser history for a time stamped entry showing success in applying for a $6,000 rebate from Duke Energy to demonstrate I did complete the process at 9:11 AM, not 11:00 AM -- so this is important. Found it and needed to copy the line with the time stamp without the whole browser history. Was able to just copy the site with "success=true", but no time/date. Tried drag and drop, but that just deleted the entry entirely. Is there any way to recover it?

actually, I am facing two problems 1. Whenever I try to download any image of 720p,1080p, 4k, 7k, 8k or even any other dimensions (above 300pixels) and save it to downloads and then go back to check my downloaded images then i noticed that it automatically degrade my downloaded image quality and save it to a very low dimension(approx. 300x168 pixels) and currently I am using LENOVO-ideapad 330 laptop which supports 2k resolution and also I have also set my laptop to max resolution(1920x1080) ,so now tell me how to download any high quality image without degrading image quality.

2. When using Chrome, if I download two files named "unknown" it will save the second as unknown (1) and so on and so forth however when I use FireFox and I attempt to download two files with the same name I will have to type a new file name out and its quit annoying, so I have to save two or more same name files manually not automatically as other browsers do.

Tell me how to fix above two problems.

Below uploaded 3 screenshots , two screenshots of problem 1(2) and problem1(b) is for first problem and problem 2 named screenshot is for above mentioned problem 2 respectively .

When I try to access downloaded files in Firefox after my latest windows update (Installed today), I cannot do so. Instead it either opens infinite tabs of the blank file, or it attempts to open the file name in four different tabs (such as putting the word spring in the search bar of the third tab opened if it was the third word in the file name). I need Firefox to function for school, please advise.

A week ago, when starting Firefox, the message 'updating Firefox . . . ' appeared before the progrom loaded. I've seen this before and it has always continued to load Firefox. This time, after some hard-drive activity, the program did not load. I started looking for support and chose to uninstal v72 - shut down my laptop and restarted it. I downloaded the latest version and at the end of install - where 'run firefox' is expected - nothing happened. I have since uninstalled and downloaded the latest beta version (73) - and now, when I ask to run the program, it opens a window but all the tabs are 'dead' and no matter what I type, the program does not connect to the internet (i.e. Google search or direct to a known web address). If I select settings, I can see the drop-down list - but if I select 'Add-ons' (for example) - nothing happens. I attempted to run my laptop in safe mode, but I have no recall of the password needed to get past the login screen. Is there anything simple I can do to bring my Firefox back to life?

I have checked my startup options and this is not one. Firefox does not start "immediately"; sometimes when I have started a Firefox session quickly after booting up, a second iteration appears (on top of the one in which I am working grrrr). I believe this is related to the last Windows update. It is VERY annoying and usually counter-productive. HELP!
