computer crashes. It started with programs like Suitcase. I tried reinstalling but that ties up. Then all my fonts became screwed up. Then Firefox became srewed up. Now I can't see some of the fonts although I opened them in Font Book. Then I couldn't trash anything. Then Mozilla crashes actually "Hangs Up" and I can't rread the fonts although I am running in safe mode.

I tried running disk repair and that didn't do anything. I can't load and I can't quit and I can't dump anything in the garbage. Can you tell me where to go and be nice.

Thank you. Jean King

When typing in Firefox, such as Facebook, Amazon, entering passwords, etc. there seems to be a stall which causes the letters and punctuation to get messed up and appear out of order. I already tried re-installing Firefox but it still happens.

How can I fix this?

I've tried restarting Firefox on safe mode, changing themes and a few other things but I can't figure out why on some specific parts of some sites I get this strange appearance of the font used for that specific part. Like this. So I have no idea why it happens, when it happens.

Some fonts/headings in webpages print doubled/strange

Printer tech here, I was troubleshooting a Sharp printer and ran into a strange issue when printing from Firefox. Client has a MAC - OS 10.13 I'm sorry I don't know offhand what version of FF it was but I can tell you that I was told "this is the latest version" when I attempted to update it.

It prints some fonts (webpage headings only perhaps) in a double print/font that makes it appear a bit garbled and unattractive. I'm quite certain it is not a printer issue because the same page prints fine from Chrome and iexplore. This forum will not adequately upload my sample images so I have posted them here: Firefox erroneous printing: https://i.imgur.com/KZ2kTTw.jpg (captain obvious put the bad print in red blocks for you) Chrome printing: https://i.imgur.com/PYuGH6a.jpg iexplore printing: https://i.imgur.com/qzBDXHE.jpg (BTW support folks I uploaded all three images to imgur, thought through, typed and posted this message before the first image was able to upload here...You may wanna take a look at that)

My client showed me several webpages he was having problems with, my samples are all the same page which is http://siica.sharpusa.com/product-downloads

What I have tried: All suggestions listed at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox, including -Changing the default font -Resetting the Firefox printer settings -Resetting ALL Firefox printer settings (removed any lines containing "_print" in the the prefs.js file)


Any suggestions or assistance is greatly appreciated!

FF is removing my check mark from the 'allow sites to use their own fonts' box How do I stop this?

I need to allow 2 sites (so far) to choose their own font styles and sizes, but most of the rest drive me bananas and are difficult to read, I've tried installing 'Stylish' but that just offers a list of styles for specific sites (like YouTube and GMail etc) made by coding type people.

That's not me.

Didn't there used to be something that let you change fonts and colours when you had the site page open? There was a pane to one side that gave you a preview of what your adjustments would look like - what can I use like that for FireFox 36?
