So for extra security, I recently tried tweaking the about:config as suggested here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Privacy/Privacy_Task_Force/firefox_about_config_privacy_tweeks.

Everything turned out ok, except the automatic zoom level memory function for each web page switched off. How do I switch it back on?

Many thanks!

The issue occurs after viewing a YouTube video in full screen and returning to the subscription home page. The top of the home page no longer appears at the top, it's missing and the script is displayed to the left of the monitor screen where it's partially blocked. The glitch is present on all subscription sites recently visited, not an isolated case.

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.9 GB usable) System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Pen and touch No pen or touch input is available for this display

Edition Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1 Installed on ‎12/‎16/‎2019 OS build 19043.1237 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3740.0

GTX 1070 GPU 8Gb

This issue is also present on my Thinkpad running Firefox 92.0 64. Different graphics system.

First image shows the displaced content, the next image, after pressing F11 to resolve, is the correct content.

Tried the suggested fixes to no avail, last try was a Firefox re-install which didn't fix the issue. This glitch was not present before the most recent Firefox update.

The work around is to press F11 to restore the display to its proper order.

Thanks for any help.

Is there a reason no one has developed a simple Restart browser button, that will open the browser in the same, last session?

I know you can do it from "About:Profiles", but it would be convenient to have it on the toolbar. I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate it.

I am writing a WebExtension to communicate with a server using XMLHttpRequest.

I load this WebExtension temporarily by about:debugging. It works well if I do not login into my Firefox account. It can get data from the server.

But after logining into my account, it returns "xmlhttp.status: 0" immediately when I trying to do the same thing.

I removed all other add-ons and WebExtensions, But still I have this problem.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Is there a maximum number of bookmarks that can be synchronised? In the past (I don't know exactly when) there was a limit of about 5000 bookmarks. I have the impression that this limit has now been dropped and all bookmarks are synchronised. Is that right?

The solution works, great, however this should be the default, it allows zooming, it is more balanced, etc.

There is at least two other threads that complained in or around this same issue, reset this to deatult next update or sooner!!

I cleared my cache and cookies and still have the issue.

Each morning, when I first cold boot my computer, the moment I open my Firefox browser, I receive numerous (10+) identical error messages from Bitdefender:

Suspicious connection blocked: Feature: Online Threat Prevention

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to content-signature-2.cdn.mozilla.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

Question: Is this ACTUALLY coming from Firefox? If so, please match your security certificates! If that's impossible due to a technical issue, then please email me your confirmation so that I can add an exception to Bitdefender.

Question: If it's not coming from Firefox, please email me, letting me know what additional system information you require so that we can get to the bottom of who/what is masquerading as Firefox while attempting to establish an unauthorized Internet connection from my computer.

HP Envy laptop, Windows 10 OS, latest update.

This has been occurring for several months.

Thank you for your time.

Hi, I've been using the Mozilla Firefox browser for a while now and I have noticed that i can not use my microphone to speak anywhere. For example, I can't speak what I want to say on Google Translate, & I can't talk in voice chats on Discord (random examples). It always says that voice input is not supported. May I know why your browser doesn't support voice input?

When I call wget on a webpage, I get raw HTML in response. I would like to write a simple parsing script which extracts the main article text content from web pages with similar structure, i.e. different documentation articles about Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications. I am pretty sure I should inspect the HTML tree, figure out which nodes tend to contain article headers and paragraphs, and then just write a script that retrieves those nodes. What would be the simplest way to inspect the HTML tree to find the nodes, and then with which library should I extract the text content from those nodes? Thank you

Using latest updated Windows 10 and latest updated Firefox 92.0, when I open up Google Maps and click on "Show your Location" button it shunts me off to the middle of Chicago, rather than downtown Menlo Park, CA.

I double checked whether my WIndows Settings were set to allow location, and it was still set to "On." I also tried using Chrome and there, everything worked as expected. I also tried Microsoft Edge, and there it was broken as well.

So, the problem could be with Windows or Firefox apparently...Not sure how to fix or at least work around the problem.

Hello,

I am having issues with error messages when browsing with Firefox.

This error PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR and this error SSL_ERROR_RX_UNEXPECTED_APPLICATION_DATA I don't get these errors when using Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

When I reload the current page, the page loads properly.

I've tried these tips so far: refreshing Firefox, setting to "no proxy" on network settings, turning off Avast, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, checking manual proxy on my PC, restart my computer, refreshing Firefox, checking the clock on my PC.

Is there anything else I can do to fix this?

Thank you for assistance.

I browsed a clothing website for less than 5 minutes by typing in the address and not using any links. Shortly after I receive an email asking if I was still interested in what I was looking at. Does Firefox share my email address with websites I'm visiting? I believe the email is coming from SafeOpt, not the website I visited. I do have "do not track" options selected in Firefox.
