For example, this page mostly displays: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_lynx But items like the latin name does not (attached pic). Switching off the italics on the latin name causes it to display correctly.

Bolding text doesn't cause any issues.

My problem seems similar to this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/774797

However I can see Helvetica fonts just fine. I can cause the error when I switch it to italics. data:text/html,Helvetica Neue
''abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ


Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks!

Hi there,

So I manage 2 x FB accounts, mine & Mum's (only cos she's not too savvy). My FB loads fine, apps work, games, vids etc. Mum's on the other hand only has a blank screen when I log in. Nothing on her news feed. She can access the apps/games via links to her email address, and once you've opened one app via an email link you can pretty much access the other apps/games, but not go to their actual page (for bonus points etc), This was working perfectly until this morning.

Hate to say this, but it works in Chrome

I installed Firefox 6 days ago and since the 1st day, firefox had random tabs that crashed. Today, it happened several times. Even my browser closed itself.

I have no idea what's causing it.

I've added a screenshot of all the crash reports that I've send over the past 6 days. Hope this helps.

Kind Regards, Gunther.

Hello everyone,

Since a few days I have a problem with the layout Firefox gives me displaying “youtube.com”. The layout and a lot of functions (like play, full screen etc.) have changed or disappeared. The changes don’t apply in Firefox’s private Mode (and neither in Google Chrome nor on Firefox of my girlfriend’s laptop). I deactivated every single Addon and searched on google - unfortunately, I could not find any solution. Does somebody have an idea?

I have added two pictures where you can see the comparison between normal and private mode.

I have the latest version for Firefox and Adobe Shockwave Flash.

Thanks a lot in advance and enjoy your day, Simon

Need help configuring Firefox exceptions for Cookies and Other site Data so sites like the NY Times can remember me so I don't have to log-in to them multiple times per day.

I've even deleted Firefox and started over, but that did not resolve the issue.

I need an expert in this to help me as I'm just not getting it...though I have tried many different configurations of FireFox's settings.

Thanks

Today I got what I've seen described as the "Facebook White Screen of Death". I've tried: Reload Clear Facebook cookies (which implies logging back in) Clear site data Restart in Safe Mode None of these things make any difference. Still get only a white screen. Facebook works fine in the Chrome browser and in the Android app, so it must be a Firefox-specific issue, in my case. This is Firefox 81.0.2 under Ubuntu 20.04 The problem only started today. I've used Facebook with Firefox for years without problem.

Whenever I try to add a bookmark in FF (81.0.2, 32-bit), the default folder for the bookmark is "Other Bookmarks", with the option to save the bookmark to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder (which is my preference).

How can I get FF to default to the "Bookmarks Menu" folder when saving a bookmark?

I began receiving the following message about 3 days ago - PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR. As I was browsing the forum I came across a suggestion to disable add-ons and restart Firefox in safe mode. When I did that I could now connect to the website I wanted. I then re-stared Firefox multiple times disabling the Add-ons one at a time.

In my case the culprit is "DuckDuckGo" priviacy and security add-on. When I disabled that and re-started Firefox I was able to connect. WhoYah!!!

Hello Firefox community,

I have a website that is designed by GoDaddy which has sections blocked which I'm assuming is through a security feature in Firefox. If I use Chrome everything is fine, visible and functional. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue outside of switching browsers? Thanks!

My OS is Win 7 Pro 64-bit, and I'm running FFv. 81.0.2 32-bit.

I have my Windows system set to open any PDF file using Adobe Reader. 

All PDF files show the Adobe icon, and open with Adobe from my desktop or my other browsers (Pale Moon and Internet Explorer). However, in FF, they open using FF, and change all my settings and icons to show as FF icons and all PDF file to open with FF. I have all my settings in the FF options to use Adobe Reader for all PDF and other Adobe documents to use Adobe Reader, but FF still insists on opening PDF files and changing all PDF icons to the FF icon (i.e., breaking the PDF associations with Adobe Reader that I had previously set). I have to go into my control panel to associate the PDF extension with Adobe each time this happens.

How can I stop FF from doing this?
