FF87.0 on Win10, all addons deactivated.

Hi, it seems that over night, the font of Japanese text in my MediaWiki has changed from [this](https://i.imgur.com/fxV9rMr.png) to [this](https://i.imgur.com/1uI9c1h.png). I don't know why, since I didn't access the server files or changed anything around.

Over the course of troubleshooting, I figured out that it seems like the monospaced font is at fault. So I tried to change the font Firefox uses for *serif fonts* to MS Gothic (instead of standard TNR). This is despite using *monospaced font* in my user settings on the wiki.

I also opened FF on my laptop where it is still on 84.0.2 and everything looks as it should, with the same standard settings applied everywhere. So I'm 80% sure the last FF updated changed something. The missing 20% are because I only noticed this yesterday, but the update happened four days ago, right?

Also, on the old FF the fonts used are Courier New and Microsoft YaHei. On the new FF it's Courier New and SimSun. In the settings I have "Fonts for: Latin" and the standard fonts, so I don't know where YaHei and SimSun come from. When I change Serif: TNR to YaHei, it changes from SimSun to YaHei...

Edit: This thread solved it, actually: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277075

Short answer: Add Japanese to the preferred languages, leave everything else as it is.

Hi Team,

I am facing problem while opening Citrix from Firefox. When i open Citrix, it asks me to choose the application to open it with and also asks me to remember the choice.

The problem has been going on for a few weeks now and I have the feeling the disfunction is related to an update. I tried whatever fixes I could understand in the troubleshooting guide to no avail (Clearing cache, reset firefox, ensure it's up to date, safe mode, disable add-ons, disabled security...). New pages will open and sometimes I get a partial download of a bannerhead but then the circle goes on endlessly. The download will stop and If I constantly refresh I might eventually get to the page. I checked with Verizon, my ISP, and they say they see no problem on their end. My Alexa got disconnected and I tried unsuccessfully, with Amazon assistance to reconnect it but whenever I connected it to my wireless, my wireless woould disconnect. Then if I tried to connect my wireless, the Amazon connection would disconnect. This has been going on for weeks and at the point where I feel my only option is to give up on Firefox cause of a sense that it's gone overboard with its security protections for non-ecperts on computers. I've been troubleshooting this for hours and hours over 10 days and I'm at my wits end.

I have an up to date Firefox andI'm operating a windows 10 computer.

Sometimes I get error messages. I've gotten this one: 502 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. The origin closed the connection. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner. If you provide content to customers through CloudFront, you can find steps to troubleshoot and help prevent this error by reviewing the CloudFront documentation.

Generated by cloudfront (CloudFront)

or (after about 10 seconds) 504 - Gateway Timeout

I've gotten one while trying to sign into Firefox to write this but can only copy one message. This one was different - not from CloudFront -- but it too said something about the site being too busy to connect as one possible reason for the failure.

Any possible explainations/solutions before I have to abandon the browser? I don't want too as I appreciate the security but if the price is I can't function on the computer what choice have I.

I have followed your instructions for allowing my microphone. I am trying to dictate into Microsoft's online Word (it won't let you dictate into your OWN Word anymore, apparently). I've allowed the microphone. It even says it's allowed. And I still get a nix from the page. Please help. This is driving me nuts. I need to type as little as possible with my tendonitis and this is not helping.

Ich muss auf Deutsch schreiben :-(

Ich arbeite mit mehreren Profilen in FF und TB. Bisher bekam ich nach Klick auf einen Link in TB die Profil-Auswahl von FF angeboten. Nach dem letzten Update von TB (auf 78.9.0) und FF (auf 87.0) geschieht das nicht mehr. Ich bekomme stattdessen immer nur das letzte benutzte FF-Profil geöffnet. Da ich dort aber meistens nicht die relevanten Links gespeichert habe, muss ich jedes Mal FF beenden, mit neuem Profil starten und dann den Link (aus TB) erneut aufrufen. Dies ist sehr nervig und kostet unnötig Zeit.

Welche Einstellungen muss ich korrigieren, um das gewohnte Verhalten von FF wieder zu erhalten?

Whenever I open a new window, the Bookmark Sidebar is displayed. I've tried going through Menu, Customize Toobar to remove the icon from the menu bar. That part works. But then the next time I open a window, there's the sidebar. When I went back into Menu, Customize Toobar, the icon wasn't there, so I restored the previous session to bring it back in order to try something else. Nothing worked.

Obviously, the problem isn't with the toolbar, but with a Window setting, but where is THAT information stored? It ain't under Options. It's either so obvious or so obtuse, I'm missing it. Thanks in advance.
