I am running Win 10. When I read The Economist, Firefox clips the last word off of each line of text. I am unable to adjust Firefox to eliminate the problem. When I read the same article from The Economist using the Chrome browser, NO WORDS ARE CLIPPED FROM THE END OF EACH LINE OF TEXT. The Economist customer help says that this is a Firefox formatting problem

Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit When I close several tabs, a message box appears telling me that tabs will be closed in 20 seconds, or to click to avoid that. If I dismiss the box by clicking on the window-frame "X", Firefox closes too many tabs. (The box disappears after a few seconds.) I wish not to see that box. I wish Firefox to do nothing I do not trigger myself. How do I eliminate that function entirely?

Firefox Stopped working (Window 7 SP1) and I had to reinstall it form scratch. Now I have lost my bookmarks. when I go through the procedure to restore them, I can see the historical backup files going back some days. But when I attempt to restore from any of those files, I get this Error Message: Unable to Process backup file. I can find nothing on Firefox Help that addresses this problem. I have tried it in Safe Mode, but got the same result. Any suggestions most gratefully received.

I can log onto Facebook but as soon as I get to my feed the tab crashes. No other site but Facebook is causing this to happen. I've submitted the crash reports but that is it. Viewed it afterward but I can't make heads or tails of what it's saying. The tab crashes in "safe mode" as well. Hopefully someone reading this can help.

Having what seems to be a recurring issue throughout Firefox releases. When maximizing a window I get a large white bar blocking the entire header-menu area of the browser. Have attempted cycling the browser through fullscreen with F11 and Dev mode with F12. Have completely restarted the browser in and out of SafeMode with the same issue present. Additionally I can interact with the webpage however I cannot interact with any of the menus in the white bar in fact I actually select the icons on the desktop behind the bar. My computer is setup with one 1080p monitor and one 1440p monitor; this bug only appears on the 1440p screen. Going to restart and see if that solves the issue however I wanted to make a note of this error as it appears to be recurring throughout the past few years. Last detail is I am running Windows 10 and all drivers are up to date. Pictures show the browser in maximized SafeMode and after restoring view the bottom pop-up desktop menu.

Firefox will not start. After double-clicking the icon, the cursor indicates the system is busy, but no icon appears on the taskbar and no window opens on screen. Task Manager shows a Firefox process running (not running before trying to start Firefox). With UAC activated, UAC window opens and asks whether to allow Firefox to make changes to the computer. After choosing Yes, the UAC window keeps opening and asking, over and over. Have reinstalled Firefox. Have tried to start Firefox in Safe Mode (both Shift>double-click and Run command). Have tried to start Profile Manager from Run command (firefox.exe -P and "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P). Neither Firefox nor Profile Manager will open. Found a file in the Profiles folder called Parent.Lock and deleted it, with no apparent effect. Would like to know what might get Firefox to work.
