Firefox occasionally displays the digit 9 as a dash "-". On any particular website this can occur on all pages, only some pages or on one part of a page and not another part of the same page. This occurs in the same places on Chrome and Opera but it does not occur on Safari. I have seen it occur on text sent from a website as well as on text I type. In one example, the font-family is Helvetica and the problem occurs on larger font-sizes but not smaller sizes sent from the website. In another example, when typing a credit card number, the font-size is typically small and the problem does occur. I am using Firefox version 77.0.1 on Mac OS 10.11.

If someone wants to reset their browser they can search how to do it. Why on earth would you suggest a reset/destruction of a full working browser under the name of "refresh" ?????

One is abstracted, clicks ok, and destroys their well set up browser for no reason at all !!!

You should rename the damn "refresh" or better completely trash it!

When I try to checkout on a site using Shopify, the credit card fields are unusable. The form fields turn into animations, almost like an animated GIF and will not stop. It is difficult to describe what is going on. Here's what it looks like:https://i.imgur.com/mTJfDeD.mp4. I don't know how else to illustrate the issue. This has been going on for the past several versions of Firefox. I'm currently using 79.0b3 (64-bit) on a Mac.

Adding a Feature that Pauses Unused Tabs?

Hello!

I was wondering if there are any plans to add a feature like this (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) to Firefox? I tend to keep lots of tabs open at once, and I'd love to be able to pause unused tabs without closing them. But I'd prefer to avoid giving an add-on access to all of my data. So I keep hoping that this type of feature will get incorporated into Firefox. Do you know if there are any plans like this?

Thanks so much in advance and for the work that you're doing!

I have just switched to a new Macbook laptop. If firefox, when clicking on the bookmark star in the address field, the drop down box opens to edit the bookmark. When clicking on Choose Bookmark, the list that opens contains only 6 lines of folders to choose from. With my last few computers, I was easily able to search and get an answer on how to increase the number of lines from 6 to whatever I wanted. Unfortunately, I never wrote it down and now I cannot recall how to do this. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thank you!

Hi, When I turned on my computer this morning, my bookmarks were not there. I've tried the steps laid out by Firefox, but no success. I tried another browser, Safari, which I seldom use, and Safari bookmarks were still there. I have many different bookmarks in Firefox so I'd rather not switch over to Safari unless absolutely necessary. Nothing else is missing, so I doubt if I've been hacked. I did check a bank account, which was fine. I'm not a high profile person, so I doubt if I've been targeted. And I see the pic of the lock closed in the URL bar constantly. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I'm on Mac OS 10.15.5 (Catalina) Firefox 78.0.1 (64bit) Thanks, JJ

[Firefox won't accept my master password] From Firefox Help I was told I could try another profile if I had one. Beside the Default Profile I have one in Root Directory and one in Local Directory. Instructions say to use one by clicking LAUNCH PROFILE IN NEW BROWSER. That command does not appear anywhere. ???? IF I could find that command, where could I find the command SET AS DEFAULT PROFILE?

Hi everyone, I'm having issues with my url/navigation bar and I can't find out how to fix it. I already reinstalled firefox but it didn't change the issue: When I type in a website (or a search) in the url bar, nothing happens when I press enter, I have to manually click on the arrow to get the browser to react. (It works just fine in other browsers). I tried to de- and re-activate all the Address Bar Suggestions in preferences but this also didn't change anything.

Hope there's a solution out there..

All good Simon
