Recently (the last week), my Firefox browser is randomly dropping characters from the text of a web page. I have the latest update (83.0 (64-bit)) and have also tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. This problem is not happening with other programs, (text editors, spreadsheets) or in chrome. I have attached an image below to show the problem. If I refresh the page, usually all the characters appear. If I select the text, the characters also appear. Any suggestions? I haven't recently added any new plugins.

When I attempt to login to a captcha protected account it won't stop with the verification. I have to answer the captcha picture puzzle 30 or more times. After this occurred on several different sites I finally tried Google. The captcha worked the first or second time.

I'm trying to understand how AWS pulls a file from a client device after I post an upload request to AWS S3. HTML is asynchronous and I can't figure out how, after I post the file name and such, an upload is started.

I’m uploading images from a user’s device to a S3 bucket using a HTML form. Everything is working fine but I don’t understand how the S3 server can initiate an upload from a client browser after the form data (file name, signature, policy, etc.) has been posted to its URL. The image data is in a file on the client device and is not contained in the form, only the file name is there. Where in the process is the upload started and how does the S3 server tell the client browser to upload the image data?

Perhaps there’s more communication between the web server and browser during a post/response that I’m not aware of. Perhaps AWS and Firefox have a WebSocket open to perform the file upload?

Any insight would be appreciated.

So, FireFox has a built-in "dark theme". But at the moment, I think it is not finished. The fact is that, with the "dark theme" enabled, the background of the FF service pages (for example: "Blank Page", "Preferences") are white. In this regard, my question is, will this be fixed in future releases?

The second question is about "dark themes" on web sites. Web developers have finally figured out how to present their site in a user-defined color theme. For example - Youtube. If I open a Youtube page not with FireFox, it will define a "device theme" and show the page not in "white" but in "dark" version. It is very comfortable. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in FF. Can FireFox be taught to tell the site the color theme of the device?

Most of the time it is when I am using Facebook and have more than one tab open.

At the moment it's a waste of time having tabs as options because I can't use more than one at a time or else every single page comes up with this error... a web page is slowing down your browser

Does anyone have any bright ideas on how to get it to stop - I have search the net and changed and tweaked a few settings but nothing has made any difference at all.

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.
