For some reason, when I started my computer this morning the tabs were all bright blue. When I click on another window and change focus, it reverts to the light gray that it should be, however going back resumes the problem. Starting in safe mode does not help, and turning off hardware acceleration does not help. I have restarted both the browser and my computer, and the problem resumes. The only thing that seems to change it, is when I change it to certain themes like space, who completely change the color of it. The default, dark, and light themes all are affected by this bright blue tab bar.

Hi,

I have been seeing few dashes/hyphen like colored lines moving on the top of my web browser screen randomly in order only on the top border of the browser. Was wondering if this happens generally for FIREFOX QUANTAM users on Mac. I have been seeing this only on this browser. I have also attached the area/region where it occurs for reference. However, whenever I try to take a Mac Screenshot with the particular dashes it suddenly disappears.

I hope someone knows about this. Looking forward to some help.

Running <marquee> text on a page affects my sight. I stopped it using userChrome.css and userContent.css files under the ...\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\7nahgl90.default\chrome folder. But after the last Firefox update, <marquee> texts run afresh. How can I disable this HTML tag? Thank you!

My address bar on my tablet is small due to my screen size and caused by the icons as shown in the screenshot I cannot see the address anymore and sometimes even not click it to edit. How can I remove them? I would expect all these yellow marked icons in the bar outside the address edit so I can add and remove the like all other icons.

Hi,

We are a company with Firefox 24 deployed to more than 2000 PCs. We have an Intranet app made with Silverlight working ok with this Firefox version. But now we want to update to Firefox 33 and testing it we've found that it doesn't work with the Silverlight app with big monitors. It seems to be related to the resolution of the monitor, or at least, to the size of the Firefox window. The problem is that the mouse pointer doesn't seem to be pointing where it is. It's better explained in this screencast, where you can see that in a 1024px Firefox window it works OK, but when it's 1920px it doesn't work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA9DLYc-vpE

We tried different versions of Silverlight, currently 5.1.30514.0 I don't know in which Firefox version it started to appear this bug. With Internet Explorer it works.

Any idea?

A complex website I created suddenly has multiple Windows Mozilla users complaining that the font size is smaller in Web forms. They've sent me screen shots and it's true. They say this occurred around Wednesday August 19, 2015.

No changes have been made to the website. There are a production and a test website and the problem exists in both places. The problem exists only on Mozilla on Windows, and multiple individual users have experienced it.

I have verified the font looks smaller on Mozilla. There is no such problem in Google Chrome.

Did an automatic update perhaps change the default font size? Possibly only the font size inside Web form fields?

I am using Firefox 46.0.1. I did not encounter this bug before this update.

I have sensory processing issues. Flashing, zooming, parallax, etc. animation can trigger migraines, and flashing safety signals have triggered seizures, possibly due to the Bucha effect/flicker vertigo. I don't have epilepsy.

I currently use QuickJava to block Gifs and Flash and sometimes block Javascript.

Unfortunately, if I try to "view image info," it no longer blocks Gifs. So instead of seeing the image info, I see pain.

I don't know where the change is.

Since the last couple of updates, Firefox has begun to restore minimized windows to a smaller size every time it is restored.

Example (sizes are ballpark, not exact): Window is 1200x800. Minimize and restore. Now it is 1000x650. Minimize and restore. Now it is 800x400. Minimize and restore. Now it is 600x300. And so on, all the way down to nothing.

I have two windows (both with this behavior), one on each monitor. I run Windows 8.1 and Firefox 48. Same behavior in safe mode so not addon-related.

The company that I work with uses a company web that is hosted by a SBS 2008 Server. I can access the companyweb with chrome or safari, but Firefox does not work. The other two come up with a white screen and then a authentication box comes down to ask for your credentials. Firefox does not do this. It just has a white screen. It is not just my computer that is doing this. It seems to be all Macs that have Firefox. What is also weird is that Firefox for Windows works fine.

Hey all,

So the problem is that when I have a flash video open in full screen on either monitor, and then click over to the monitor that isn't playing the video, Firefox hard crashes with me having to go to task manager to close it down to get it working again, I've tried reinstalling Firefox and Flash, as well as disabling hardware acceleration to no avail.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Cheers

So, randomly whenever I have FireFox or IE open I get a random black screen for a second or two then it comes back on, I only ever get this when browsing the internet, never when gaming or anything else, I can't narrow it down to anything since I recently installed Windows 10, I have a GTX770 (HDMI) I have also checked Event viewer and there is nothing there about it.

(I have tried running Firefox in safe mode and it still does it)

CNN article doesn't display properly in Firefox

I am using the latest version of Firefox and Windows 10.

I found a link to the following CNN Travel article:

http://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/vancouver-china-aviation-hub/index.html

It does not display properly in Firefox. Only the opening photo and a few lines of text display and it won't scroll any further down. It is a fairly long article. Also, the lines of text that do display seem to be double-spaced and do not have carriage returns where they should appear, meaning that some words at the end of the lines get cut off.

I tried opening the same link in both Internet Explorer and Edge and the article displays correctly in both with none of these problems.

For some reason Firefox displays the <body> element of many websites in a wrong color.

Take a look on this website: http://xcmag.com/magazine-articles/mastering-paragliding-the-45-degree-rule/

I have attached a screenshot of Firefox and Chrome side-by-side showing the same page. Note that the problem persists in most other websites (it is not the specific to have problem).

I tried to start Firefox in safe mode, but the problem persists. i tried to disable any themes, but still the same. I also made sure that the default theme is selected. On other machines with Firefox the problem does not happen.

I tried to move my profile folder to another machine and the problem was also moved! So something I guess is wrong with my profile?

Any ideas on how to fix this?

First of all thx for making life harder with every update instead of easier!

After automated upgrade to v60, the newtab configuration is gone. Before, i nicely arranged the URL's i KNOW i need the most in a 4x4 matrice. Now, YOU decide, which bullshit to highlight and which sites have to be my TopSites.

How to recover my former 4x4 newtab layout, with URL's I CONFIGURED, back? I tried to find the corresponding config file in the .mozilla directory i backed up recently, but did not find that information there.

Sometimes, you should offer your users the choice, to decide, what they want, not, what you want them to want!
