Always have to waste time fixing this. With the power of technology today, why can this never be solved? Last time I finally found some source advising me to log into admin config or something. Then change a '1' to a '2'.

I tried it again this time. Does not remain resolved. Constant back & forth closing browser, restarting which fixes if for day or two, then back to same mess. WHY cannot this be resolved before sending out the upgrade?

After I fixed this last upgrade, it remained fixed.

Not THIS time. Fonts still reverting to skinny Hv light ital or similar. Not consistent. Could occur on some pages, others not.

Hello everyone! I have a problem with the font displaying in Firefox browser in the banner which was made in Google Web Designer tool. In the Preview mode all the texts on the banner downshifting for 1-2px (by Y axis). The same problem in the IE and Safari browsers. There's no such the problem in Google Chrome and Opera browsers. I've contacted the Google Creative Ads Support regarding to this and the specialist said that it seems to be a problem with the browsers instead of GWD tool (he tried to fix it in 3 different ways and nothing helped) I'll appreciate for any help! I can tell it in more detail.

Today when I started Firefox it auto-updated to version 77, and all web-pages looked like a mess of weird symbols like the ones in the screenshot I attached.

I tried disabling all addons and plugins, and some other stuff but nothing worked.

So I downgraded to 76.0.1 and everything works fine, it's definetly a problem with version 77.

I guess I won't be updating until I know this problem was adressed.

I just upgraded to to Mac OS Catalina and Firefox 75, and I've noticed two very strange and specific problems on certain websites.

-On Wikipedia the number 9 is displayed as an underscore _ So the year 1669 looks like 1__9, etc.

-On Blogger, in the compose mode, typing lowercase y makes nothing appear, and typing lowercase z produces quotation marks!

I tried using a different (brand new) keyboard, and the problem remained.

I tried those two websites in the Safari browser, and there were no problems.

Hello

I recently installed Firefox to windows 10 pro.

1) my firefox menu items fonts in Windows 10 look very different from my Windows XP version of Firefox. How can i change them, so they look like they used in XP?

2) The menu folders are now black and white, is it possible to change them into a colour like before?

3) Firefox generally displays all fonts weird way, like they are broken somehow. What can i do?

Please see attached picture.

Thank you!

I've been using Firefox since it was released, but I'm sick of all the issues I have with it that DO NOT effect Chrome and other browsers. I frequently get garbage characters in place of things like apostrophes on various sites. I also get misaligned elements on some forms and so on (e.g. radio buttons above the line they should be on). But today I want an answer to a specific problem -- inline video players. Sometimes, but not all the time, the labels on the controls of inline players change to weird alphabetic characters so that I can't tell how to operate the player. See the example below (the red circles have been added to highlight the problem).

Occasional missing Chinese character

Hi! I've recently been having a problem with displaying some Chinese characters on Firefox. It seems like some Chinese characters don't display at all (no boxes or anything) in some sans-serif fonts.

For example, the character 变 isn't visible as I'm typing in this text box nor is it visible if I type it in the address bar. Also, as shown in the attached image its sans-serif form isn't visible in this page: https://zh.wiktionary.org/zh-hans/%E5%8F%98 while it is perfectly visible on Microsoft Edge. Inspecting the missing character shows that it's using the MS Gothic font.

The English Wiktionary page of the same character (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E5%8F%98) uses the DengXian font without any problems.

I have the Chinese supplemental fonts installed on my computer (Windows 10) and I have a Japanese system locale.

How to handle text on websites looking like little boxes wih an "A" in each?

After running Firefox for a time - 1 to 3 days - every character in the regular text on very website is replaced by a small box with an "A" in it. I am on Mac 10.9.5. Restarting Firefox doesn't help. The only thing that helps is my normal maintenance: Repair permissions in Disk Utility, restart in Safe Boot mode, wait for the hard disk to settle down, restart regularly. Firefox didn't always do this. Now it does it all the time.

Since a few updates the fonts on a few webpages got kind of blurry (see that on the attached picture). I have not changed anything related to fonts in Windows settings and Firefox settings. It just happened from one day to another, can't remember exactly when unfortunately. Since then Facebook somehow got back to it's normal font, but other pages like Linustechtips and FB Messenger are still blurry.

On Nightly fx76 Windows 10 1909. The Windows 10 default system font is Segoe UI. For readability reasons on my 3840x2160 4K monitor I changed the system font to a font that is a little larger than Segoe UI. No matter what font I choose I get boxes instead of the characters that should be displayed. The characters in question are the < and > characters. So far I've only seen this problem on a Bugzilla bug report which happens to be mine. The link is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1618336. The characters are at the top and look like this... Bug List (411 of 500)❰❰ First❰ PrevNext ❱Last ❱❱ The boxes should be < and > signs.

I haven't come across any problems like this in any other Windows programs I use and so far in Firefox only on my bug report. It appears that Segoe UI has all the characters in it while other fonts do not. Unicode issue perhaps? Any ideas on how to fix this other than going back to Segoe UI? So far I haven't found a font that doesn't produce the boxes.

F.F. version: 73.01 for linux os: linux mint 19.1

Install and click tab for vue devtool. Font resize(ctrl and +) or (ctrl and -). The menu bar above vue devtool resizes but the viewing area of vue devtool fails resizing. Clicking in vue devtool area does not help. Click outside vue devtool and on the content area. Then resize. Works as expected. Click on inspector tab. Resize, works as expected.

Tested vue devtool resizing on linux chrome. Works as expected.
