I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

Hello, Today I downloaded the offline version of MDN for HTML from Kapeli. I extracted it and ran it with Firefox but error appeared, it was saying: "Application rendering error. An unhandled error occurred in the application. We apologize for the inconvenience!" after that I opened it with Edge and everything was working just fine. I tried to reset Firefox, but this didn't work either. Can you help me with this problem, I would be grateful.

I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

The ffmpeg wasm library does not work on firefox. I am developing a video editing app using ffmpeg wasm (version 0.9.5). But I am not able to run it in firefox (version 83, Linux Mint 20 Ulyana) Same thing runs perfectly fine in chromium. I googled and the general consensus says firefox does not support latest ffmpeg library features. I have attached a screenshot of browser console.log for clarity on the issue. I checked the browser config and the Shared ArrayBuffer value is set to true.

Since I installed Firefox 82 (on Mac OS 10.14) when I'm filling in an online form FF jumps away from the page and brings up an error message telling me that the form is no longer available. Huh? I can use the "Try again" button and it takes me back to the form, but might have lost some of my entries. This happened several times when I was entering data for a bank transfer and has just happened again when I was ordering something online. I've now installed FF 83 but have the same problem. I use only 2 extensions: 1 Password and Privacy Pass. Thank you in anticipation of helping me sort this out.

I have an embedded system with a HTTP server on it. It doesn't provide HTTPS. When I restart it, the host gets offline from the network for 10 or 20 seconds. When I try to reload the webpage too early (the host isn't quite ready yet), Firefox automatically redirects me to HTTPS. How can I disable HTTPS redirection on timeout?

Hello, My problem is when I did the lastest FireFox update on 11/21/20, YouTube video's will not play on FireFox, even with the accelerated hardware un-checked, and even in Safe Mode. However - YouTube "does" work just fine on Google Chrome.

My system: MBP, High Sierra, using FireFox version: 83.0 (64-bit). What Ive done so far: Ive shut off the ad-blocker, the accelerated hardware is always off, went into Safe Mode and still the vids wont play. YouTube video's play perfectly fine in Google Chrome.

FireFox: I can watch movies on Amazon Prime with no problems. Its just a YouTube problem.

Thanks very much for your sage advice.

Hey all, I've encountered a strange behavior with Firefox 83 under macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 where if I have desktop notifications enabled for YouTube enabled, I'll get duplicate notifications. For example, If I have one notification waiting from YouTube when launching Firefox, I'll see it twice when opening notification center. This doesn't happen, if Firefox is running and notifications come in, and it only happens with YouTube.

Also, This didn't seem to be a problem on Firefox 82.0.3 when I initially upgraded to Big Sur. It seems to have started with version 83.

I have completely deleted all firefox data and settings, and started fresh to confirm it wasn't corrupted settings, and it doesn't appear to be. I also asked about this in #Firefox on freenode, but after a couple hours of waiting never got an answer: so trying here today.

I've also searched, and no one else seems to have reported this issue, other than me. Is this a known issue, or am I the first? Also, is there anything I can do outside waiting for a firefox update / big sure updates? For now, I have disabled desktop notifications in YouTube settings as that's the only problem site I'm experiencing. This seems to be a firefox, and Youtube specific issue, as the latest version of Chrome is also set to deliver me notifications, and those work correctly, as well as do all other notifications, both system, and app.

If there is anything I can do to resolve this, please let me know.

Thanks

After formatting a brand new computer, I am facing issues when printing a few PDF files where Firefox will alter the font and size. I've tried other browsers (Edge, Chrome) and none of this happens. I've also attempted a few fixes like resetting Firefox, reinstalling Firefox, changing settings in the print preview (which is an excellent way to see the problem without even having to print).

Specific example: A PDF attachment in Roundcube Webmail is printed, and the text fields have the font size adjusting to the height of the field. In this particular instance I will share an example where the original PDF has a form text/memo field that defaults to use Helvetica font with auto-sizing - begins at about 12px and gets smaller to fit the text inside the box.

Printing this PDF from Firefox (to an actual printer or to PDF) results in the bad font settings mentioned above, and when using a PDF printer I find that the font changed from the original's size 10 to Arial size 62. This issue can also be perceived using the print preview.

If anyone has some ideas, I would appreciate it.

Bets regards.
