After upgrading to 93.0, this one bookmark isn't working. When I talked to the technical support for the bank, the person indicated that it was a problem with FF, not with the bank. I am able to get into the account if I use Safari (ugh!). Once I click on the login bar, there isn't any corresponding bouncing dot on the tab, which indicates that there isn't anything going on on the website. The website just sits there. As far as I know, I've not having this problem with any of the other bookmarks that I use on a regular basis.

Any suggestions?

For some reason images are not loading in Outlook.com when I use Firefox. Images load fine when using Chrome or Edge, but Firefox is my preferred browser. Is anyone having a similar issue. I know there was recently an issue with the site itself but it seems MS resolved it but perhaps whatever they did only fixed the issue for chromium engines?

Firefox Version 93 64-bit

  • I have used troubleshoot mode and it works temporarily so I thought it was an extension and turned them all off but the issue persists. I reset Firefox but it did not correct the issue.
  • I have disabled the tracking protection and no change
  • I went in to Outlook.com settings and toggled the 'Use outlook services to load images' and no change.
  • Emails are marked as safe senders.

I think I hit all the major tips I have read online so I'm hoping I'm overlooking something. Any thoughts?

I was disturbed to find in a test for v2 and v4 icc support from the color.org website (International Color Consortium), "Is your system ICC Version 4 ready", which Firefox failed.

I found out that what the ICC refers to as "system" references browsers. My computer is an iMac OS X 10.13.6 and my Firefox is v93. The test is https://www..color.org/version4html.xalter. There is a link that brings the test up in PDF, which I think is necessary as the link itself seems to be only a picture.

Other photography sites have pointed this use of the word "system" out for, in my case, Safari and Chrome for instance. I tried Safari and ran the PDF test. It passed. I tried Firefox again (and again) it failed every time. Other people have had the same result, as in the following quote, "...Houston we have a problem...".

One of the most helpful websites I have found for this, mostly from fine photography sites, was https://gregbenzphotography.com/photography-tips/how-to-setup-proper-color-management-in-a-web-browser. This website had six tests for browsers. Firefox passed every test except test #6. Using Safari, it passed all including test #6. You could try it with Chrome.

This website, and many others, suggested a Firefox enabling correction that starts with typing into a Firefox address bar about:confg click, and after some scary warnings, type in gfx.color_management.mode (set to 1), click, then gfx.color_management.enablev4 (set to true), click, then gfx.color_management.rendering_intent. (set to 1 relative colorimetric--or to 0 for us Philistines). Restart Firefox.

Didn't work, Firefox still failed. I tried this many times, same result. Read the last sentence of the Summary on that website.

I'm sad to do this, but sending my even relatively elementary images to an outside printer, using PDF/X1a to KDP or IngramSpark for instance, I'll use Safari because I don't trust what Firefox might do. If anyone knows a way for Firefox to pass muster with the ICC, I will gladly use it.

Ok so the question I was originally asking is why Firefox won't adjust to my computers Settings. For instance I have to Zoom to 150% to read my emails even though the minimum font size is set 20. So I went on the Help page and it kept giving direction do Refreshing the page, which I believe I've done before but the tutorial said they've changed the way it looks and where its at and unfortunately on my current, newest version, Firefox its nowhere. For starters, click on the 3 lines ie the Menu Bar on the right, good, then go down to Help, no Help listed in the Drop-Down Menu, No Troubleshooting, no More Tools? I am stuck? Ok under Share Data it says "safe-mode false" ?

I work with text a lot in the browser. In Chrome, I can select a piece of text, then press Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down arrow to select paragraphs above or below the selected text. Also in Chrome, I can press Ctrl+up/down arrow to move the text cursor one paragraph above or one paragraph below when I type. But in FireFox, the combination ctrl+up/down arrow duplicates home and end. Tell me how can I assign actions to these keyboard shortcuts to work with paragraphs?

I am using Firefox 93.0 on Archlinux, with Kde Plasma 5.22.5 and since yesterday a very strange issue is happening.

Only when I use my Firefox' Work Profile, the mouse cursor hitpoint is misaligned from the tip of the pointer.

For example, for the arrow cursor, the hit point is on the left a few pixels below the arrow tip. For the text caret cursor it is even worse as the hit point lies outside the cursor itself, about 5 pixels below.

This happens not only within the pages, but also on the tabs, bookmarks, tabs, menus and even the settings page, as can be see in the partial screenshot attached. As per the cursor position, the "Advanced" button should be highlighted, but "Colours" is highlighted instead.

This DOES not happen with any other program on the same linux session and not even on firefox when using my private profile.

I have tried disabling extensions, but that did not change anything.

I am not even sure where I can start investigating or troubleshooting this, appreciate any suggestion. Thank you.

Is there a way to use "search engine shortcut" without query just to go to a website of the appropriate search-engine?

So as, for example, after writing "g" (or "g"+space) in the search bar and pressing Enter, firefox opened the url "https://www.google.com/search?q=" (or something like that).

It used to work this way in older versions of Firefox (before 83), but since then firefox just searches "g" with the default search engine. Or it "eats" the shortcut (after pressing space) and turns it into a "blue/gray search engine label" but it does not allow me to go to the search engine web without writing some query that I need to remove afterwards.

I was using this feature as a sort of bookmark shortcuts to "custom" search engine websites (I'm using tens of them for debugging purposes and often need to fill in some additional parameters to the "text" query - often even to an "empty query").

The closest I got googling was probably "browser.urlbar.update2.emptySearchBehavior" - but it either does not work already, does not do what I'm expecting or I did not come up with the correct value for it.

I was editing the bookmarks on PC in hope that the change will reflect on my iPhone with the sync on, but contrary to what I hoped, the sync worked the other way around, any change I made on PC will be reverted in a few minutes, which seems that it has been synced by the bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I get it right? I would like to have the ability to make changes on either device and reflect on the other device.
