Is there any way (as in Thunderbird, via layouts.css.devPixelsperPx) to enlarge everything on a given monitor/display/colorDepth setting? Or an approach using userChrome.css that impacts everything, not just displayed text in the browser. Yes, this is a "tired old eyes" (excessive nanoseconds spent looking at bigger and bigger displays with higher and higher resolution) type question. My setup is multiple boot OS including Windows 11, Ubuntu, Manjaro, Arch. In each Firefox is the default browser, but Chrome and Edge seem to have more fine-grained controls for managing the chrome display than Mozilla. Using the latest 64-bit Firefox (100.02) if that's helpful.

Fix Firefox 100.0.2 (64-bit) browser. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Version 21H2 OS Build: 19044.1706 Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 120-2212.4170.0

Let me give you a scenario.

I cleared my cookies.

Go to https://www.amazon.com. From the drop-down at the top of the page (it now shows All) select a product area. I selected "electronics". I now type in "batteries" in the search field. The screen goes black. The tab is now unresponsive.

Another example. Go to https://www.amazon.com. From the drop-down at the top of the page (it now shows All) select a product area. I selected "Kindle Store". Now I selected any book (I typed in "Killing th" and the drop-down showed "killing the illers bill oreilly. A small book shows up in the middle of the screen (which is now grayed out). I can select "orders" and the orders are shown but they are skewed in an abnormal fashion (i.e. not displayed as they were on the previous version of Firefox). I hit the back arrow and click on the small icon of the book displayed and I am on the page for that book. However scrolling down shows that the page is displayed in an abnormal fashion and I can no longer click on "orders" (nothing happens when I click on this drop-down.

I cannot order anything and I need to hit the back arrow to return to the previous page in order to log off of Amazon.com.

I use Firefox by choice. However my least two browsers in the world (Chrome and Edge) both sill work on Amazon.

I REALLY REALLY do not want to use those browsers for ordering on Amazon. Please fix Firefox. I like it more, believe it's more secure and I really prefer that browser. Please help me by fixing your browser.

One more thing: I just updated Firefox today. It worked fine yesterday..

Using Windows 11 and want to set Gmail as my mailto option when clicking on email links on websites. Under Firefox/Settings/Mailto I no longer see the option for Gmail, not an expert on technical matters so I have googled the problem but still can't find a solution. Do I need to find an App on Windows or perhaps an Extension within Firefox, feeling completely lost at the moment.

From time to time I get an Error Overflow message in Firefox. Sometimes I enter the website directly in the address line and other times I click a link in an email and it tries to open in Firefox as it is my default browser. If I copy the address line to Chrome it loads correctly.

This is mildly irritating as it puzzles me each time it happens.

I have attached a screen snip showing the error.

I used to sign in to my credit card through Elan Financial Services and then I would highlight my credit card, tell it the date range I needed to update to Quicken, and hit enter. a popup would give me the option of opening the file or to save the quicken file to my computer. I would select the option to open the file and it would update my register on Quicken. Now, I only get the option to save the file to my computer. On Microsoft Edge, I still get the choice to open or save the file. Why doesn't Firefox support the Open Function anymore. I use Firefox for everything, but now I have to remember to switch to Edge for this one important update. Is this a change in Firefox or something I have to deal with Elan on? Thanks for any help. --sgb

The browser takes extremely long time to start-up. Task manager shows that it's trying to pull some 200mbs of data at the rate of 0.5mb\s or less. RAM is fine. HDD is old, but recently defragmented and, outside of <this> particular issue - it's not a problem. System is dusty, but system is system. For some reason virtually any other program launches more or less just fine. A particularly heavy game can pull gigabytes of data in about the same time that Firefox is bottlenecked to kilobyte speed.

It's not a conflict of start-ups, I have only the driver necessities in there. it's not a windows start-up issue, the browser can take as much time even a minute after windows is loaded. It's not a (anti)virus. Because I don't use either. It's not some 15 year old Celeron trying to handle W10, FX8320 should be able to handle opening a web browser. It's not a ton of extensions, and it's not even Firefox accounting, it happened before I registered. From extensions it's only ublock origin and VPN.

My personal three guesses are:

-More than 3-5 tabs on average, but, last I checked, the tabs aren't loaded upon start-up. And power users have sessions of dozens of tabs. -100-200 bookmarks. Again, not sure how hard is it to read a text data, unless it also has to load some thumbnails or icons or whatever. -Software aging.(Latest stable firefox, updates are on, and it has been running far less than this 4 year old system)

Reinstalling the system isn't a solution. Nor is reinstalling Firefox. Nor is dumping bookmarks, because otherwise why bookmark them. I'd just like to know why is Firefox limited to kilobyte speed of initial page loading. It can't be a damaged HDD cluster, otherwise I'd feel it outside of start-up.

With my limited knowledge of PC - it's usually a random read issue. Because like every memory benchmarks(HDD and RAM) can show hysterical speeds when loading\copying some 50gigs of a single file, if it's a few hundreds of thousands of small files - it becomes random and tanks. But what I don't understand why does Firefox have THAT much clutter? Is it really the bookmarks?

Hello, I'm using Firefox 100.0.2 (OS: Ubuntu 20.04). It is not possible to manage if/when firefox updates are installed. In the options-section, there are some information about the current version number, however no chance to configure anything update-related. Updates just happens automatically and interrupt current sessions, leading to spontaneous (and surprising) dysfunction of the opened browser. That's very annoying in case of video conferencing, for example, because it is not possible to open any new tab or windows, always the note there "you have to restart firefox now" - in practice, just like a crashing error. And, the suggested restart does not re-open the current opened tabs/URLs!

Furthermore, within some updates, my language settings get lost, so it turns to English language automatically and I always must add my language packet manually again and again. Thats really annoying and maybe completely disruptive for people that are not able to read in English!

Is there any chance to come over this? Otherwise I guess I must leave using firefox as browser, however this would be not the aim I actually follow. Thx!

Hi Since I guess Firefox 99 - not sure ... and now in Firefox 100.0.2 CTRL + Z and CTRL + Y not working when editing in Word Press ...

It is so annoying and make you loose data and waste a lot of time.

I cannot keep saving data all the time - yes I know Word Press has its own data saving etc.

I am talking about a 'normal' operation as CTRL + Z and Y !

I am a keyboard user since the 90s (!) and use loads of shortcuts fast and makes me waste hours sometime.

Any tips, maybe in the About:config settings?

Thank you M

When I connect to my home router via HTTPS I get a popup with the message “Invalid Encryption Key”. I tried using other installations of Firefox and I don't get this pop up. I then made a new Firefox profile on the same computer and did not get the popup. So it seemed like a Firefox "refresh" would be in order. But after the refresh the problem persists.

So how do I resolve this issue?

Firefox is the latest version running on a Mac.

I believed it was a ram problem with my previous pc because it was old, but this one is completely new and has the same problem, while there's nothing except my microsoft account that is common to both PCs

I'm completely lost, help me please (writing this on another PC)

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.gpecompany.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.
