I am unable to clear cache. 2.0MB of cache always remain after I go through the appropriate steps to clear cache. I have tried everything recommended by Mozilla and online. A few times the 2.0MB cleared on its own but then immediately reappeared. This problem started happening around six weeks ago. I checked the cache folder and nothing appears there but when Firefox is open it always shows 2.0MB of cache and it won't clear.

Majority of text not displaying on certain websites

Hello,

I have been getting a problem lately where nearly all the text on a couple of websites does not display. Only a few characters, such as 'T', 'E', 'L' and '4' display. I have attached screenshots of one of these websites - how it displays in Firefox vs. how it displays in Google Chrome. It also happens in the chat function of the online lecture video system my uni uses (Blackboard Collaborate Ultra), which runs in the browser (it's not a separate app).

I did a search for similar problems on mozilla support and tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, however nothing changed.

I'm using Firefox 78.12.0esr on MacOS X 10.11.6

Any help would be appreciated.

I develop WP websites using DIVI Theme from Elegant Themes. Certain information within DIVI modules such as the section toggle titles don't display. There may be one letter. The toggle character is there. When I toggle, the settings are mostly there and I can set what I need then save. It helps that I know which toggle has the setting I need from working in it so long.

On the front end, sites that I have built show images but much of the the text is not displaying. Everything is fine in Chrome. So it is a browser or OS system.

Macbook Pro late 2008 Yosemite 10.10.5 FF 78.12.0esr (64-bit)

Is by OS supported? Any other ideas. All themes and plugins are up to date. Thanks for any help. I do all my work in FF.

Hi, I would like to know how to use the keyboard to select, move, group, bookmark, load, and close multiple tabs with the keyboard all without loading the unloaded tabs. I've recently started using Tree Style Tabs add-on and I wish I could use the keyboard when doing these tasks. I've read somewhere about a firefox-native function that should allow this to happen by enabling in userChrome.css profile: .tabbrowser-tab {

  -moz-user-focus: normal !important;

} but it doesn't work... anyone able to work with tabs efficiently using keyboard only?

Thanks.

Firefox always offers to save jpg files instead of just displaying them

This is maddening. I have a 2-frame page, one side is weather, the other side is AQI. Because the AQI web site doesn't allow frames, for a long time I just load the JPG that shows the AQI map for my area. (It has a static name.) So I load a JPG in the right-hand frame. The other day, I right-clicked and downloaded the image so I could e-mail it to a friend. Ever since then, Firefox wants to download the image. Firefox no longer shows the image in the right-hand frame. Instead I was getting the save dialog, which I set up to have it always open in Firefox, which now opens it in another screen. If I go into Settings (or wherever it is) and find "Applications" and tweak jpg, it does not give me "show in Firefox"; the closest is "preview in Firefox" but THAT only shows up in OTHER applications, not jpg. I did some searching, and found a handlers.json file, but that did not fix this maddening problem. How do I get Firefox to simply go back to showing jpg in the browser? I tried deleting some cookies, but since this goes back more than 24 hours, all Firefox lets me do is delete everything, and I do not want to do that. How do I fix this? BTW, it says I am "robv2", which maybe I am, but I am guessing I was "robv" at another time. (I could be wrong.) In any case, I am not sure, if anyone replies, how I am alerted, etc. So I guess I'll check back. (OK, I see below there's a check box for alerting me when/if someone answers.) I could attach an image after I reset to "ask," but what would be the point? I am sure anyone reading this knows what this looks like. The question is: why won't Firefox just show the jpg? This always worked the way I wanted when I used Google Chrome. If anyone wants an image, let me know.

Toolbar folders -> drop down orientation problem -> screen limit not recognised

Hello:

Quite a few iterations of Firefox ago (cannot recall which), the orientation of the drop down menu listing the bookmarks inside any folder in the toolbar was either towards the 'left' or towards the 'right', depending of the amount of screen real estate available to the right side of the screen where it was opened.

If the listing could not be properly seen by opening the drop down menu towards the 'right', it would be opened towards the 'left'.

This worked perfectly well with my three screen setup, with Firefox in a window in the centre screen. ie: Firefox knew it was inside a three screen wide setup and in the centre screen, so it also "knew" that the right edge of the centre screen was the limit for available screen real estate.

At some time this stopped working in the described manner.

It seems that Firefox now ignores the right edge of the centre screen and as a result the drop down menu for any folder in the toolbar opens to the 'right' and invades the right screen. (see attached screen capture)

If Firefox is opened in a window inside the right screen, it proeprly recognises the right edge of the screen as the limit and acts accordingly.

This is quite a problem for me: I make intensive use of the toolbar with bookmarks inside folders and subfolders and this heavily affects my everyday work.

Is there a way to get back to how it used to be? ie: Firefox using the right edge of the screen it is opened in as the limit to open a drop down menu.

Thanks in advance,

S.
