After update 103.0 was applied, the entire display got bigger. Fonts are larger, display no longer fits on screen, taskbar is larger. Several hours ago, it was fine. I logged out of Firefox, and at next login, the display had changed.

I've checked everything else on the computer and nothing else was affected--only Firefox . Running Windows 10.

I have tries clearing my history including cache & cookies. I have run malware program. I have rebooted.

Before today, Firefox worked perfectly fine on stubhub. But I allowed a Firefox update (103.0) this morning, and now no stubhub.

Please advise.

New Text Size function on Firefox has messed up all my web pages

Windows 10

Re the new feature - "Windows' Make text bigger" accessibility setting now affects all the UI and content pages, rather than only applying to system font sizes."

Now text sizes on all my web pages are messed up, mostly way too large. On at least one page with graphics, when I try scrolling to get a good size, the layout of the text is wrong. I can't get a good proportion with both the graphic and the text - that is, if the graphic (a board game site) is the right size, the text is too tiny.

And resizing one page affects other pages on which I need different sizes.

So how can I Undo this unwanted AND NOT needed feature?

So, the old problem of double spacing is back. Luckily only on bookmarks menu and sidebar, but even so it's annoying.

Has there been any progress with finding a solution for this perennial nuisance?

Also, the userchrome.css fixes I've used previously don't seem to be working. What's the latest fix to be used?

Why on earth would you want the history pane to automatically scroll to the very top after clicking on a result??

And no, I am not opening links in a private window.

This is a stupid design flaw that no other browser has, FIX IT MOZILLA.

Firefox 103.0.2 (64 bit) doesn't play YouTube videso in Private Window. The same videso play in s statdrad new window. Try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fiVciCs8zU which ironically won't play in private! Every time you press the play button you get about half a second of play before pausing. In standard mode it plays just fine.

Hi everybody this will be a long question, and I would be really grateful for any kind of help anyone could give me, this is my case:

I use `firefox-sync` to manage all my logins information and firefox-sync's password is the unique password I save manually.

Currently I has problems with my O.S and I decided reinstall it. But also I have 2FA enable for mostly of my accounts, and firefox-sync is not the exception, and firefox-sync's 2FA is based on my gmail, so when I tried get logged on firefox-sync, firefox asks me for my verification code, but my verification code is in my gmail, and my gmail's password is in firefox-sync.

So I lost access to all my accounts, I lose my gmail, github, gitlab, stackoverflow, discord, etc etc... :'(

From the gmail side, I tried all that gmail let me try but unsuccessfully.

So, the only possibility that I see, is recover the information of the formatted partition and rebuild the previous state of Firefox. I mean:

Reading about firefox loggins, and taking a look to firefox's workdir (`$HOME/.mozilla`), I see firefox saves login's info in a json file located in `$HOME/.mozilla/$profile$/logins.json`.

So the basic idea is with a data recovery tool, try recover `.mozilla`s directory and replace it over the current environment so when I start firefox can get access to my login's info. But I'm not sure how much it is possible to recover the whole directory, and if is not posible, my question is:

What files next to `logins.json` should be my recovery targets to replace inside the `.mozilla` folder in order to reconstruct my accounts login information?

Win 10, Developer Edition 103.0b2

This update caused everything to increase in size. Tabs & toolbars are much bigger now. Toolbar and bookmarks toolbar used to fit in the window with no overflow, now both have a lot of items in overflow.

Sites that used to fit at 100% zoom now have to be reduced to 80% or 67% to fit on-screen.

Just wondering what could cause this behavior? Settings?

Note: Browser window is fully maximized and no other program on my Win10 box has this issue.

This started about 1 week ago. The links also don't work starting FF in safe mode. The links on my.yahoo home page also do not work on Chrome or Edge (same behavior). See attached screen shot image. I am also minimizing the use of cookies on all browsers. However, the links work fine on all the other my.yahoo panels (ABC News: US, News: NPR, CNET, etc.) for all browsers. And on some sites paying with PayPal does not work - as others have noted.

I'm using the latest Firefox browser on my PC running Windows 10.

Suddenly the Flavicon for my web site (indymotorspeedway.com) is displaying Yahoo!'s flavicon in the tool bar. Other flavicons in tool bar are ok. When I open my web site in a tab, the correct flavicon appears in the tab. (see attached photo)

This problem occurred at the same time as another problem - My browser began displaying at a much larger size. Using <ctrl> + mouse scroll button, 80% is the size I'm used to seeing.

I checked that my Display settings in Windows had not changed.

[What may have started these problems: I don't use other browsers, but have them (Avast, Chrome, IE, Edge, Vivaldi) installed in case I need to test something. I started all of them to test a web site, before these problems began. If I recall, at some point I accidentally clicked by some box, which may have been changing my preferred search engine to Bing.]

I went to Firefox settings. I had to reset Firefox as the default browser. I can't remember if I had to change the default search engine back to DuckDuckGo.

I switched the zoom size from 100% to 80% and back several times. For now, the browser is back to displaying at its normal size.

Note: The correct flavicon is appearing in the tool bars of Chrome and Edge.

In most of the apps running on MacOS, you have inside the standard "Window" top menu, a lot of options, like: - Minimize - Zoom - Tile Window to the Left - Tile Window to the Right - Move to <monitor name> ... ...etc

In Firefox (I'm using developer version, 103b), we only get the first 2 options (minimize and zoom). I have set shortcuts to easy move my windows around my monitors, but they don't work in Firefox, because those shortcuts relies on the presence of the menu option "Move to <monitor>".

Is it by design, or is there a way to get this option in the Window menu? I'm attaching the menu clip from Chrome and Firefox to illustrate the issue.

I've tried with Troubleshoot Mode, and clearing history (cache, cookies, site settings, offline website data). How can I find out what's blocking? The example is a Twitter post on Wed 08/17/2022.

Before I updated to FF 103.0.1, links I clicked on in e-mails in Outlook would open in an FF window using my existing default profile. Since updating to FF 103.0.1, these links open in an FF window with a virgin profile. If no such window was already open (from clicking on another e-mail link) this will be a new FF window, even if FF was already open with my normal profile. As a result, e-mail links to PDFs open the files directly in FF (instead of asking me where to download them to, as I have configured in my profile) and I am missing my stored passwords when the links lead to websites that require login.

This is a real PITA! Is there anything I can do other than revert to an earlier FF version? Please help!

I am running Windows 10 2021H2.
