“连”、“设备” are Microsoft YaHei(MSYH), but the others are other fonts which are not on my computer, and although my settings are zh-CN, my language pack is zh-CN, my Default Font is MSYH, the bold characters are JAPANESE STYLE CHINESE CHARACTERS. Maybe it is because in your font-config, ja-JP is former to zh-CN, please fix it.

I'll occasionally run into Firefox auto-filling another website address I don't want, but I just figured out that it's Shift+Delete and not Delete to remove an auto-fill entry (a rather asinine change, I thought). Unfortunately, clearing out the unwanted address did not work and the address still auto-fills in the U.R.L. bar (see picture).

If deleting auto-fill entries doesn't actually work, what will?

I've always been curious about this, as well, but how does Firefox determine what address auto-fills if I type in a couple of letters? Does it keep a running tally of how many times I've searched for/visited a particular site and use that data? This would be useful to know for the future.

Please tell me (like I'm 5yo) how to control/increase the font size for tabs and bookmarks. Seems like an accessiblity feature I just can't seem to find. Thanks!

I noticed under "Add ons" section of "Troubleshooting information" that several extensions (namely "Google - google@search.mozilla.org") are enabled by default. I have removed Google from my search options and I cannot find a way to disable or remove it in under "Add-ons" section of main menu as it doesn't show up there. Is there a way to remove it (and Amazon and Bing while we're at it)?

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

I have latest version of Firefox. It wont display pictures in articles I read online unless I hold down shift and click the refresh button then do a control/F5. The articles all display properly in MS Edge if I use it. I am trying to understand what settings I need to change in Firefox to permanently fix this so I don't have to do this repeatedly.

Hi,

With recents versions of Firefox (I cant' tell which), when you type an adress and resolve of this adress failed, firefox is running a search with this adress as parameter. I want to disable this feature, as this can be a security problem when typing internal servers private urls. You have to put "http(s)://" to disable the feature I've separated main adress and search input, disabled autocompletion, but the main adress is still making searchs.

Is there a way to fix this?

Hello!

I have just installed the Simple Tab Groups add-on and moved it to tab bar (using the Customize menu), but unfortunately its icon remains black since it is an add-on, so it doesn't have a gray/white variant like the the native Firefox buttons. Since I use the default theme in Firefox my tab bar is black all the time (and I need/want to keep it that way) so what I'd like to do is just recolor the Simple Tab Groups add-on icon myself. I just have no idea where the icon data is stored and how I could do so.

Help is appreciated!

I'm used to having the tab bar aligned with a minimize, full screen and close option. However, it seems these options are on a windows bar of themselves above the tabs. I've shared a picture of the two elements on the same bar i got from my previous PC and the misaligned one on this PC. Thanks for any help you can give me.
