Mozilla Firefox for linux Mint 99.0.1 (64 bit) - mint-001


Using Outlook web, when viewing pdf documents, it displays strange symbols (incorrect font sets are probably used).

I point out that using Chrome the problem does not arise.

I also installed the microsoft fonts thinking it might solve the problem I attach illustrative image.

Best Regards. Salvatore

Firefox is my browser of choice. For the most part, it works great. In fact, the only issue I've ever had with it is one website in particular not loading. Unfortunately, that website is the site that I use to check my schedule for work, so it not working is kind of a big deal to me. On occasion, it simply will not load. Frankly, that is not a big deal. I can always check back later, when it might work. However, on Firefox, even when the site does load, certain elements do not load. For example, there is a built in tool that includes company updates, scheduling info, et cetera. While it consistently loads perfectly in Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome, it appears only as a white box in Firefox that occupies the same space but cannot be interacted with. I have tried easing up privacy settings for that website to no avail. I looked to see if there was a javascript option I could toggle, but I could not find it and I am not sure that is the issue anyway. The site is feed.kroger.com, although the authentication page occupies a different URL. Other Kroger family websites have worked without trouble; this is the only one that acts buggy.

I set an older website to forward to my new website. This worked and then stopped working. Both sites are GoDaddy hosted. GoDaddy teach person was did not have the forwarding problem. Private window in Firefox didn't help. Clearing cash, etc. didn't help. Edge worked with problems. Safari on my phone worked without problems. My Firefox is all up to date.

GoDaddy googled this problem and said a solution might require a change of Firefox "rules," but I have no idea what that might mean.

Any help is appreciated. Firefox is my browser always.

i have firefox 99.0.1 64 bit in a linux system. i see fail in play of sounds. videos plays well, youtube, soundcloud and others play well, the thing is the play of sound only, in for example dictionary sites

for example in wiktionary in the page Europe sometimes audio plays well the first time, but it sticks at the beginning of play in replay. if i play it in loop in this page https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/46/En-us-Europe.ogg it plays well but again in playing it one time it sticks

in the page english (see the small letter) of the same site as it is not changed to the new control bar i go to menu > players where i have the html5 and javascript options, failing the former and doing well the latter, so you may think the fail is in html5, but in this page http://atticgreek.org/pronunc/sigmaU.html inspecting the page i see that sound works by javascript and i have a similar fail as the first word nósos plays well but the second présbeis again plays only the beginning and sticks

When I have resistFingerprinting set to true, closed captions on certain sites where the feature is active (I think it specifically happens with HTML5 canvas image data, but I could be wrong), change colour. Is this intended? If so, is this configurable? It's quite annoying and makes for less readable text most of the time when trying to watch content. This specifically happened on Wakanim.tv for me. Once I turned off resistFingerprinting, it went away again. Some example are in the attachments.

Not Working: Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed

I have Firefox set to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" but it doesn't do what it says it will. Cookies are deleted, but the cache remains. I want to keep a history of the sites I've visited, but have no cookies or cache saved when I close- see images below.

The first is how I have it set for Firefox when I close. The second is an example when I reopen Firefox - the cache is still there. I never have any exceptions set up and don't need to.

When I ask this question on this forum all I get is a response that looks like its by a bot. It repeats the instructions for clearing the cache that do not work that I already know, but never address my actual issue.

Is this a feature that just doesn't work, and is ignored by Firefox, even though their entire rap is that they have more privacy oriented than other browsers? Privacy washing perhaps?

Or is there some setting I am missing?

Hello, I'm unable to access my Firefox logins. I followed some of the advice on here and discovered that my login files appear to be corrupted (logins.json.corrupt). I tried some of the suggested methods, but I can't re-establish access to my logins.

I'm not sure if this is related, but when I click on the Applications menu, though my profile is there, it says "Account disconnected" next to a warning sign.

Please help... I've been saving my passwords and logins here for years. Any advice welcome. Many thanks in advance.

PS... yes, I know I should have backed them up somewhere, I'll never repeat this mistake.

Firefox is unable to send the request at the startup, meaning it's just keep showing loading... and then opens the webpage after a couple of minutes. For example, if I open instagram.com: At the bottom it says, "sending request to www.instagram.com" and it stucks on that for some time as I'm not able to click anywhere in the webpage. And sometimes, it says, "transferring data from www.instagram.com" PC and the internet connection is fine. What could be the issue?

Hi,

I use firefox, with synced settings, at both home and my place of work. I try to manage cookies so my Spotify always remains logged it when I open my bookmark. This works on my home computer, but doesn't seem to work on my office computer.

I've looked at the setting and to me they appear the same. I'm only slightly know what I'm doing so any help would be grately appriciated! One system is a Mac and one is a Windows - unsure if that would make any kind of difference.

Thanks, Andrew

Hello, Firefox has been getting worse with the latest updates to the browser. There are several websites I've attempted to visit that I received an error message when using Firefox, but opened without a problem with another browser. I am also having issues when trying to open attachments someone has sent to me in Outlook. I can read the email, but cannot open the attachments to the email. Are there any indications Firefox has been having these problems? If yes, are there fixes in the works?

Thank you, Marc

Many times when I print email form my yahoo webmail all I get is a header on the first page and do not get the most important part of the message.
