Dear Community, after one of recent Firefox updates I experience an issue with text display on certain pages. Some text is not visible because it is white on white background. The text is there, I can highlight it. I am using latest Firefox release as suggested by auto update. This white on white issue is regardless of selected Theme, even in dark theme it is white on white. Please have a look at the attached screenshots.

Hello

My firefox is getting disconnected that lasts for a couple of minutes and then the connection gets restored. It is frequent and has been taking place since a few days ago. The problem is only in Mozilla Firefox and all the other software tools are well connected to the internet. I tried to fix the problem by refreshing the firefox and then uninstalled it and re-installed it but the issue remains.

I would appreciate any help.

Cordially

Hi Guys,

Recently, I found that my Amazon affiliate adverts don't show up on the PC screen when using Firefox browser. There is no problem with Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers on iPhone or iPad and no problems with Chrome browser on PC. Only Firefox browser on PC screen does not show the adverts. You can check it at https://drepeternews.com/support.php with different browsers on your PC. Also do check the source code page and you will see the advert links are there. Please let me know whether you can see the adverts on your PC Firefox as that may indicate whether it is an Amazon or a Firefox or my PC issue.

This issue is with links to images and with <iframes> and only occurs on my laptops running Windows 8.10 and Windows 10.00. I have enable 3rd party cookies

Any idea how to fix this. All help is very welcome.

Thanks, Peter

I recently updated DSM to v7 on my Synology NAS. It also runs Plex. All worked before the upgrade, but stopped after. The page just pretends to be loading. but nothing happens. Works ok with Chrome, Edge. Plex web interface sits on internal IP. I refreshed FF, recreated new profile, deleted cache, cookies, played with dns prefetch and ipv6 settings, no help. There is nothing blocking the connection, other apps on same server work ok. Any ideas what else to try?

Since today I am not able to use any search engine (google, bing, yahoo search) on FireFox. I constantly get the "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue" error. All of them work perfectly well on MS Edge though. No problems on FF with other services (mail, maps, translate...) from the same providers. No recent SW/HW changes. Using Windows 10 for WS and MS Defender only. Noticed that "reCAPTCHA" fields in various sites are not shown either under FF.

BR!

PS Resetting FF did not solve the problem.

As can be seen in screenshots, the popup windows for some of the browser functions is very small and characters are illegible. "Bookmarks" and "History" popups are fine (normal sized), so not all windows are affected.

Problem started when I updated to latest version of Firefox.

The screenshots are from "troubleshooting mode", so yeah... it did not help. I know refresh is my last option, but are there any other ideas to fix the issue? I have quite a few extensions, and re-configuring them will be a pain.

I have noticed since Firefox 89.0.2 that when I press Ctrl-F to search a page it seems to work for a while but eventually stops working resulting in Phrase not found - but I know the phase is on the page.

I think if I restart my system it works sometimes for a while and later quits working but don't know how many times it works before it quits or what happens to make it quit working but it doesn't last long.

I have already done all the clear caches, history etc. and think if I totally restart my system that gets it working again for a while.

If I copy/pate the same URL into Chrome and perform the same search the phrase is found every time without fail.

Since I use the search frequently I don't think it was a problem in versions before 89.0.2 or I would have noticed it.

I have encountered one web site that has several pages that display as graphics instead of text. I have visited this site before several months ago and the display was accurate then. The first image is how it looks now. The second image is how it looked several months ago. I am running Ubuntu 20.04.2 and Firefox 89.0.2. It's very strange that this is the only page that displays this way. I checked the page in Chromium and it displays correctly in that browser. Is this Firefox or quirky html?

Firefox kept crashing over and over, even in troubleshoot mode (i already checked for malware and dont have any either), so I had to refresh it but now all of my bookmarks are gone. I made sure the bookmark bar is not hidden, and I've gone to manage bookmarks to try to restore them but it just says "unable to process". Are all of my bookmarks just gone forever now? How can I get them back???

I'm trying to remove the shadows that appear below and to the right of the bookmarks menu in Proton (i.e. the menu that pops up when you click the Bookmarks button on the toolbar).

I've managed to remove the shadow from the main bookmarks menu using this CSS:

 box.panel-arrowcontent {
   box-shadow: none !important;
 }

However, that doesn't remove the shadow from the submenus that pop up for each folder within the bookmarks menu (see the 1st screenshot).

I'm trying this using the following CSS:

 hbox[part=innerbox] {
   box-shadow: none !important;
 }

What's puzzling is that according to the inspector window, this CSS appears to be correct. In the 2nd screenshot, notice that my rule is shown as being in effect, and overriding the original rule in panelUI.css.

However, despite what the inspector shows – the shadow is still very much there!

Has anyone succeeded in removing this shadow?

JUST SWITCHED FROM WIN 7 TO WIN 10. I SELECTED ALWAYS SHOW BOOKMARKS TOOLBAR, BUT ONLY A FOLDER WITH THAT NAME APPEARS IN THE TOOLBAR INSTEAD OF ALL THE BOOKMARKS IN THAT FOLDER SPREAD OUT ACROSS THE TOOLBAR, WHICH IS WHAT I WANT. HOW DO I GET THAT TOOLBAR TO STAY OPEN AND VIEWABLE HORIZONTALLY?

WIN 7 FIREFOX HAD A "VIEW" BUTTON IN A TOOLBAR AT THE TOP. I USED THAT BUTTON TO SELECT VIEWING ALL MY BOOKMARKS IN FOLDERS IN A COLUMN AT THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN. THIS IS CRITICAL FOR MY WORK BUT I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY WAY TO DO IT, NOR COULD I FIND AN ARTICLE DEALING WITH EITHER OF THESE BOOKMARKS ISSUES.

(Sorry for all the caps. Vision issues make it easier for me to type that way.)

I am an older Firefox user and I often find myself enlarging and decreasing size of fonts on different websites to make them readable. Lately I notice I am having trouble with the fonts I am using so I need advice. What are the good fonts to use for Firefox? Also, what is the setting to adjust the fonts Firefox uses in the toolbars and address bar?

I am currently using as follows: Default: MIcrosoft Sans Serif (I like the clean lines of a sans serif, but I'm not wedded to any particular one. ) Size: 10 Proportional: Sans Serif Serif: Newsreader Sans Serif: MIcrosoft Sans Serif Monospace: Lucida Sans Font size: 10 Minimum size: 9

The problem I am having is that text in the address bar is often unreadable due to artifacts that look like a digital font, you know, the blocks? If I highlight the URL inside, the artifacts clear up. I reinstalled Firefox but that problem didn't go away. I need to know which font Firefox uses for that area before I can even begin to try to fix it. Any font suggestions are also welcome. I particularly would like fonts that are readable in many sizes and free of flourishes.

By the way, I chose the image of Google News because I also have trouble with alt text showing, I can't figure out how to get rid of that so any ideas are welcome. It's just Google.
