So i have noticed a sudden changed in firefox when i open it and been landed over to my homepage instead of where i left before which usually as "about:newtab" page and in setting there is only option to use firefox default or blank. i would rather preffered to have my home button set with my custom url, as well keeping the option to land on newtab page when ever i start my browser. which was intended as before but not since last update. now there is no option to set newtab page as also a custom url which can be any thing but forced to use the default layout by firefox. that proceed to open a homepage every time when i launch firefox.

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.

I was changing my language setting in Firefox (only) from English (US) to English (UK)(the only other option was English-Canada) as I am in Australia and we use the United Kingdom spelling anyway. Within Firefox itself (not emails or off site pages) it STILL insists that COLOUR is spelt wrong & it allows me to spell NITE (not day) incorrectly. i have an Oxford dictionary in front of me & can reference a WEBSTERS all day long. There are many, many countries that have English as their primary language, Ghana is one & some South Pacific Islands (now the French have buggered off) The Seychelles off Africa have English as their official language & you can bet 'they' would have odd spellings. So no English (Australian) that's why the word Galah doesn't even get a look in. A Galah, by the way, is a VERY common Australian bird & in anyone's language. I'm guessing there is NO American word for Cockatoo too. I will have to look that up in my Funk & Wagnalls. Funk & Wagnalls was an American publisher known for its reference works, including A Standard Dictionary of the English Language, and the Funk & Wagnalls Standard (reference Wikipedia). Well, well, not only Webster trying ton undermine (Bastardize) (its actually S not a Z) standard English but Fucken Wagnall was in on it too!

Anneeeway just a heads up. using Firefox Browser (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Ultimate (Service Pack 1) I guess support for Win7 will be gone soon anyway Microsoft will see to that.

Looking for a suitable LINUX replacement. Thanks, bye.

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.

When I first open Firefox I usually get a message that we cannot find that page. I have my start page set to Google. Then when I refresh the page it usually opens but sometimes I need to refresh more than once. Then after that I can surf normally. Does anyone know what causes that? Is it an issue with my ISP or my router or something else? I though it might be the New Tab Override extension, but disabling it won't solve the problem. I have a 100 Mbps cable connection. I do not notice the same problem with Chrome.
