On "dark", "light", or "Alpenglow" theme, there are black square corners poking out of the (rounded) window corners - which bugs me.

This is not a problem on "System theme". There are no black squares poking and out it looks perfectly round.

I am running Firefox on PopOS on an Intel NUC, but I have tried it on multiple VMs and experience the same result (92.01).

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

Accessing Firefox account with secondary email address

Hi Everyone,

I cannot access my Firefox account created with 1 of 2 email addresses I use, I'll call this emailA, and do not have Firefox in an Authenticator app nor can I find the recovery code. The account did have a secondary email address listed. I'll call this emailB. EmailB also gets all alerts when there are changes to the EmailA firefox account such as new system logins and password changes.

Given that emailb gets notifications regarding the account is there a way for me to gain access to the account with emailA as the primary address using emailB?

Failing that, is there support who I can contact to have the account under emailA deleted?

Regards,

Chris

After the last Firefox update (83.0) it seems Google hyjacked my browser with asking to comply with their terms. There was no change of avoiding this popup even after trying not to use the "OK with all" button. Trying to suit the compliance with my choices took a great deal of time.

With the update I lost the most used links in my browserbar and when I open a new tab the same thing occured.

I need help! Everyday I have at least 8 Chinese Hackers that show up on on the top in the list of websites visited on my Firefox. The entire page is in Chinese with Chinese pictures. Please see the attached images. I have no idea how long they have been there prior to being so bold to openly show themselves. I certainly have no idea of what they have uploaded or downloaded on my laptop. How can I get rid of them and what can i do to prevent them coming back? I know a lot of weird things have been going on in my computer that I have absolutely no reason nor explanation for. this has been going on for at least the last couple of years or more. I have had 3 computers to crash in a short period of time which I feel they have done. Spyware shows I have had a keylogger for a long time but all of the files it takes me to are protected and I have not been able to delete them. BillCowanjr@gmail.com

A few pages have scrambled printer fonts, not all. Tried troubleshooting with Reset Firefox printer setting and Reset all Firefox printer settings not even thinking about a refresh!

How to I clear the parameters that determine how the printer fonts are controlled. Seems like something is corrupted. Does not scramble most pages. Simplify Pages prints the same page correctly. Same pages print fine in Edge. document attached on how firefox prints the page and how edge prints the same page. Can't be the printer driver.

Firefox ignores installed Fonts (OpenDyslexic) after update (Mac)

Hi,

after an update Firefox doesn't list Fonts I used to use on all websites.

Firefox: 83.0 MacOs 10.13.6

Usually the fonts are installed under /Users/myUser/Library/Fonts and FF respected those and I was able to choose them from the drop down list. I already tried to install the fonts system-wide (/Library/Fonts) but still no luck, which is unfortunate, because I am dyslexic and those fonts actually make a huge difference for me. FontBook lists them perfectly.

Regards, Michael

Edit: Fresh profile saved the day. Do not know how to delete the question, though.

Hello

Don't know if you can help with this problem: this week reCAPTCHA on sites where I need to find out when deliveries are expected keeps on and on asking me to verify squares with traffic lights, buses etc. etc. I use Firefox but have also tried with Safari and Edge problem is just the same. It seems to me that the makers of reCAPTCHA should be told to sort out their program as it is affecting a number of browsers. Could Mozilla/Firefox do this perhaps? Meanwhile, if I'm wrong about this and if anybody has a workaround please can you let me know.

With many thanks.
