Recently I've been experiencing a weird bug when hovering over tabs (see attached screenshot). This started not too long ago, maybe a month or so. It happens randomly and disappears if I relaunch Firefox. Initially I thought that this only occurred when my computer is connected to an external display, I'm using an old MacBook Pro with an integrated Intel graphics chip. So I figured maybe it was struggling with the resolution of my external monitor. But now it happened without it being connected to the monitor. Has someone experienced this?

I can't seem to get Babbel to recognize my microphone. Since Babbel is an online language course, it is really important. I have followed the instructions on the Babbel website https://support.babbel.com/hc/en-gb/articles/205600438-How-do-I-set-up-my-microphone-for-speech-recognition- to no avail. I have followed the instructions to add it manually, also did not work. I have gone through all my add-ons and turned them off, and still nothing. Any other suggestions?

I am trying to change the password of my website. I am at the server site, I go through several levels, I choose the next level which will take me to the "change password" level, and the little symbol just spins, and will not advance to this last level. what is causing this? The browser? the OS? something else?

Thank you for your help!

Two items.

1. What happened to the "delete recent history," button and is there a new option for that, and/or will it come back in some form?

2. The "Bookmarks Toolbar," has moved from the header position to a sidebar. Is there a way to return it to its former position as well as restoring the drop down functionality? The convenience in the earlier versions was great and I'd like to have it back.

Help??

Thanks.

I have been using 64 for quite some time. Just downloaded the new version. All of my bookmarks are gone. When I go to the old 64 just a spinning icon and each tab is completely blank. I'd really like to continue using firefox. Running a business, I have not choice at this point.... had to migrate all tabs to Safari so I can work.

Any ideas? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Hi there,

Over the past couple of weeks, Firefox (83.0 64 bit) has started displaying distorted text. It will come up on a site and the only way to get it back to normal is to highlight the text. I have attached an image of the issue.

Thanks!

When I log into certain pages, Firefox will say it has finished loading but functions like search bars or drop down menus do not come up, rendering the pages useless. Other times I go to log into an account but it only loads a blank white page. I have tried clearing caches and cookies already, as well as several other solutions posted on various asks and message boards. My Internet connection is fine and the pages load perfectly on other browsers.

Whenever I close and reopen Firefox now, my bookmarks do not come through and I can't restore the tabs that were open. Is this because Firefox now requires you to sign in? (I really don't want to do that.)

Is it possible to view a list of all the things that were printed within the Firefox browser? I'm not interested in browsing history-- I'm specifically after an entire list of things that were printed using a printer within Firefox. I tried looking for threads asking the same question, but it seems like everything is focused around the normal browsing history. The system is MacOS Big Sur Version 11.2.1.

Big Sur/M1 Mac mini - browser becomes unresponsive, display incorrectly scaled

I'm using Firefox 86.0 on an Apple Silicon Mac mini (16 GB/2TB) with macOS 11.2. Several times a day when I return to the browser, it will have become completely unresponsive to clicks and or typing. In this state, I can't click on web pages, or controls in the tab bar. However, the app is not beach-balling. I can quit by right clicking on the dock icon and choosing quit from the menu (I don't have to force quit). Relaunching fixes things. Also, if I have, for example, clicked on the "new tab" button in the tab bar, once I've quit and launched again, the new tab will be in the window, indicating that the command was processed, but the result was not visible. Sometimes, but not always, when in this state the page display looks like it has been scaled to about 50%. (As if I'd hit "Zoom out" five times). One clue that may relate to this is, I'm running in scaled mode on the monitor (The monitor is capable of 3840x2160, but I'm scaling things in the Display control panel to 2560x1440.) Apps are running in Retina mode. I have tried running Firefox in Safe mode, but that didn't help. I have a lot of tabs that I don't want to lose, so running in a fresh user profile is kind of difficult, unless there's a simple way to transfer open tabs between profiles.

When a pdf is opened in a new firefox tab and then saved on the computer, the file is automatically named document.pdf, even though other browsers, safari and chrome, give the file the name that is in the title tag (ie also on the firefox tab). Why is that? Is it the creator of the pdf who forgot something or is it mozilla who prevents something?
