For some reason, when I launch Zoom from Firefox, I cannot display my name automatically in Arabic. If I log in to someone else's meeting, it works fine, and if I log in via a different browser like Chrome it works fine. It is only if I launch Zoom from firefox. Any suggestions?

I've been having the problem of websites loading slowly on Firefox for a few days now. Firefox itself loads quickly, but opening Youtube for example takes a very long time.

I have this problem since I have a new internet line, yet this is most likely not the problem, since on chrome this problem does not occur.

As a solution I have cleaned firefox and even clean reinstalled it. However, the problem still occurs. I suspect that this is a problem related to my profile. Even opening it without addons does nothing.

Any ideas?

I recently attempted to log in to a credit card processing site with the username and password stored in Firefox. Firefox auto-supplied just my username, and when I tabbed to the password field to enter that info, the username disappeared. If I tried to enter the password and return to the username field, the password disappeared. The site naturally read this as an incorrect login attempt. Tech support for the site suggested this was a browser issue and recommended I switch to another browser, and they advised clearing the cookies and cache before each time I log into their site. Sort of defeats one benefit of having a computer.

I'm using version 86.0 of Firefox released 2/23/21 -- my last successful use of the site was 2/15/21 so I'm wondering if anybody else has seen this happen in version 86.0?

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

Since the latest Firefox Update (Version 86.0), the Standard "Arial" Font has been missing from Google Spreadsheets (and Docs) and has been replaced with the inferior "Sans Serif". IIRC, this has happened once in the past (after a Firefox update), but was corrected after a few days. Is there any way to add Arial again or does one simply have to hope this issue will somehow be fixed in a future update?

I should add that this only does occur when using Firefox + Windows, any other combination (like with Chrome on Windows or Firefox on Mac) does still display the original font.

I have a Macbook laptop and I'm using a secondary screen. I use Firefox on my secondary screen, and anytime I hover over a bookmark or a button that has a tooltip, the tooltip shows on my primary monitor, instead of showing on the secondary monitor. Steps to reproduce: 1. Setup a Mac with a secondary monitor 2. Launch Firefox on the second monitor 3. Enable the Bookmark Bar and make sure you have some bookmark set in a folder structure 4. Open one of the folder so it drops down 5. Hover over one of the items in the folder SEE: The tooltip appears on the primary monitor floating over empty space, instead of hovering over the proper menu entry in the secondary monitor

I have attached a screen capture (obscuring some personal items).

Note: Some tooltips show in the right place, but all bookmark tooltips,

Whenever I click on a file to download in Firefox the dialogue box pops up asking what I would like to do with the file. I can select Open or Save as usual, but no matter what I press or how long I wait the ok button remains greyed out and unselectable. This means I can't download anything in Firefox which is very frustrating. Downloading works fine in other browsers.

So far I have run the refresh thing on Firefox which hasn't helped. I do not have any Parental Controls on as far as I know, this is a brand new computer, no children use any computers in this house and I have never activated anything like that. I have also cleared the downloads folder which had no affect either.

I just can't work out why it isn't working.

I recently switch from Chrome to firefox for my main browser, I really like it! However, I like to use a music bot to listen to music with my friends over a discord call. The audio I'm getting from the call is low quality (not choppy or anything but like, grainy? like you're using half broke old headphones) and I don't have a history of this happening. A refresh of the page didn't do anything. I'm assuming it's a firefox issue because this is the first time it's happened. Are there settings I can use to improve this?

When I typed any search shortcut (let's say "w" for Wikipedia) and then Space in the address bar, the bar would have just shown "w ".

After an update to 86, now typing "w " shows "Wikipedia" in a blue box instead of "w ". This is extremely irritating because I now can't just press Alt+D and enter a new search shortcut from scratch when I mistyped.

I have both browser.urlbar.update1 and browser.urlbar.update2 set to false.

I have attempted multiple fresh installations of Firefox Nightly, including previous versions. Upon start-up, Nightly opens the profile selection screen, and promptly hangs. Only response is the Windows error sound upon clicking anywhere within the profile selection window.

I frequently have problems with Developer Edition and Nightly every time Windows forces a system update. To solve issues with Developer Edition, I usually have to roll back to version 79, then walk the versions forward.

Similar techniques have worked with Nightly in the past, however current attempts are failing at the profile window.

Since I am unable to get past profile creation, crash reports and dump files are not being generated.
