I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04.3, at a dual-monitor setup. My problem is that in a Google Meet or Rocket Chat call, I can't present only one of my screens. My options are or to share a specific window, not practical because most of the time I need more than 1 window, or "screen" but it always presents both of my screens. ( not practical at all) Is there any solution regarding this issue?

Firefox seems to reset to a newly downloaded state without reason. All my bookmarks and custom settings are lost. This has happened several times now and I do not know if it is a BigSur issue or a Firefox issue. My Mac was just updated to BigSur and I did not have this problem on Catalina. I am about to give up on Firefox because of this issue.

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

-((

Thanks!

I left my PC for a looong time (more than a month). Came back, booted Windows and started FF - and only one window reopened, despite when I closed it there was two. And "recent windows" in "history" - grayed out.

A small remark - I use my FF in weirdly advanced mode, I have many tab groups (through addon), and two windows - one with long-run tabs I need, another with temporary ones, which I lost now. There was some important sites/history. How can I restore it back?

(and what has happened to the forum? Why Mozilla buried it's community in such an awful way so it's sooo hard to find? 0_0)

Webpages don't display properly; text and images too flushed to either margins.

Here are an examples using one site: [Image 1] is Firefox's default 100% zoom. Note the flushed text at the left margin. Ideally, it should look like [Image 2], however, that was zoomed down to 90% where the text body also shrinks along with it and making reading a tad harder. Obviously, not the best solution. [Image 3] is the same site on Safari. [Image 4] is taken from Palemoon. [Image 5] is reddit.com's comment page, again with the unsightly margin problem.

Any ideas how to fix this? Would really appreciate any troubleshooting tips.

I have managed to transform / rotate almost all of my various buttons, bookmark folder icons & site favicons and also other icons like in the appmenu and the locationbar/ac_popup pane various search favicons along the bottom of that panel. (see below code)

However I have been unable to achieve the same with the follow areas: - bookmark/history sidebar. - menubar History and Bookmarks drop down menus & submenus. - locationbar/ac_popup panel site favicons

A week ago I started using a primary password for FF. I learned it by heart, also copied it to my iPhone in a safe notation (I have access to the notation using my finger print). It worked just fine for the first days. Today I tried to use the primary password again, in order to enter a website, but somehow FF denies me entrance, again and again. No spelling issues or missing characters, because I copy the primary password from my iPhone notation and paste it into the primary password field on my Mac. In FF Lockwise (on my iPhone) I can also still see my primary FF password, which is exactly the same. Typing it down character by character doesn’t solve the problem, nor does restarting FF. Caps lock is off. No issues with my keyboard. In my privacy and security setting I cannot to stop FF from asking my primary password, because (of course also there) it won’t recognize the primary password I enter...

There is no one who knows about my primary password nor has anyone access to my computer or iPhone. So there is no way I could explain somebody to have been able to change my primary password. Could anybody please explain to me what might be going on? Did other people experience the same issue? What steps should I take to try to solve it?

And I surely wish not to need to reset my primary password, because I will lose all my saved passwords from FF... Happily I still have access to FF Lockwise on my iPhone (using my finger print). So I could still copy each password and save it somewhere else. But that would mean quite a lot of work. Besides of that I don’t trust it to work better next time I set up a primary FF password…

I hope I explained my problem well enough. Thanks in advance for trying to help me out!

Since v91.0 all webpages display incorrectly:

1. many coloured areas are mostly white 2. elements are missing or nonfunctional, i.e. invisible "x"s to close pop-ups, checkboxes that don't work etc 3. many pages look very weird and only vaguely as they have previously, or as they still do in other browsers (Safari)

I have attempted to attach a couple of screenshots showing: a) today's Weather Network page in Safari (which looks much like it always did in Firefox prior to v91.0) and b) how it now looks in Firefox

The difference is striking.

…but they are ≈3.8 MB each and this page won't allow any image attachments >1024KB. Can anyone suggest how to reduce the size of a .png image on a Mac?

After a few weeks of struggle I am close to abandoning Firefox after many years…

Can anyone help or offer any suggestions?

BTW the "Email me" checkbox below doesn't react when I click on it (although it does if I try this page in Safari), so I don't know if the box has been checked or not… Which is a perfect example of the type of problem that I am referring to, and which is rendering Firefox unusable for me.

So in plain text: PLEASE DO EMAIL ME IF ANSWERING THIS THREAD.

Many thanks.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm unable to save my username and passwords. I read that it could be that I had upgraded to a new version of Firefox. Apparently, I had previously downloaded Firefox a while ago and just recently reinstalled it. I guess it remembered. I check marked all the password settings and it still won't save at all. It said that I should downgrade to a previous version 68. Then, it asked which browser and that's where I'm stuck.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!

In one of my windows, 9 out of 10 pinned tabs have been lost and replaced with "new tab" (which are all empty, of course).

The only unusual thing I can remember was using a private window a few days ago (a feature that I had never used before). Is this the cause of this bug???

Thanks.
