After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

Hi. Since FF v103 it seems, when working with a VPN, and then trying to use also a browser extension VPN, it either does not or does not connect until after 45s. Before it was immediate. It works in all other browsers (incl FF before v103). So this is a recent change in FF that harms normal VPN connections. I found out by trial and error, that changing the port of the VPN extension to 443 and disabling and enabling the extension and going back to v103 from v103.0.1 helped, but that should not be like that. So something has been broken in the latest v103.0.1 - please kindly look into it. Thank you!

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.

it's extremely annoying to have to stop what i'm doing and play "lets find the active tab" when i have tons of youtube videos qued in open tabs. in opera, the logic is there out of the box, but in firefox, it doesn't exist. why such logic wouldn't exist is beyond me, but i see this as an annoying problem that needs fixed. i want to simply glance up at the tabs and see which one is playing without having to spend time digging through the open tabs to find the one that's playing or having to freakin memorize which one it was i don't have time for that.

i followed the guide in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1291998 i did exactly everything as instructed but it did absolutely nothing, no change at all.

Wie kann man auf die Dateien unter '/usr/share' zugreifen?

Hello,

Whenever I try to log into my Chase Bank account, using my Firefox browsers, I get a message that says that my browser is out of date, and needs to be updated. But I am using browser version 103, and I believe that is the current version. I contacted Chase about this, but they did not offer any solutions to the problem.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Dear firefox support team,

Since yesterday I've been having twitter act oddly on my on my main twitter account, but only using firefox. It keeps being on the 'try again' option window as if the wifi isn't working properly, whilst the Wifi is okay.

It keeps giving me the 'https://twitter.com/?failedScript=main' address too. And I can't think about what Script might be running into an issue. I have access normally on my android phone and google chrome. Doing a 'safe' restart didn't help either, and disabling my extension carried no result either.

I figure, since I can log in on other platforms this might not be a twitter issue, but well, I'm asking here to be sure.

I put an image of the screen I get in the attachments

Thank you

I was surprised today to visit a site and notice the "permissions" icon appear at the left of the address bar, showing me that cross-site cookies were allowed for this site. I have Enhanced Tracking Protection set to "Strict", so obviously this was a worrying thing to happen.

Looking into it a bit further, it seems Firefox provides a backdoor for cross-site cookies: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-trackers?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_managing-cross-site-cookies

  • "While cross-site cookies from trackers are blocked in Firefox by default, a site may signal to the browser that it needs to use them for important functionality. In this case, Firefox will allow a third-party website to use cross-site cookies the first five times (or up to 1% of the number of unique sites you visit in a session, whichever is larger) without prompting you. After that, Firefox will prompt you to block these cookies. Without your consent, Firefox blocks these cookies from that point because a site requesting access that many times may be a tracker."

This is most definitely not what I want!

I want every cross-site cookie to be blocked by default, unless and until I explicitly approve it. Is there an about:config preference I can set to achieve this?

Every time Firefox updates itself, all of the text and images and page layouts become huge. I have tried every single fix that is usually suggested for this issue:

Zoom out with scroll wheel: Makes text smaller (and images, if I disable zoom text only) but does not fix page layouts (ex. Google search still has a horizontal scroll bar, even in full screen.)

layout.css.devPixelsPerPx: No effect at all. Can be made bigger at values over 1.0, but not smaller.

Compact mode: Sizes down the toolbar, but nothing in the webpages themselves.

Refresh Firefox: Still huge.

Safe Mode: Still huge.

Disabled all extensions: Still huge.

Complete uninstall with all leftover system files removed with RevoUninstaller, then reinstall: Still huge.

Other browsers: Display correctly. Absolutely no issues with size, including Firefox forks like Librewolf. (See attached image for direct comparison between the two browsers.)

I can temporarily alleviate the issue by using a restore point on my computer from about a week ago but when I opened Firefox this morning, it bumped me to an update page, and everything was huge again.

I was previously using a non-native screen resolution while I was recovering from surgery in bed and the screen was too far to see at 1920x1080. But I did not have this problem for two months of recovery. It started just a couple days ago. Returning the screen to its native resolution has not resolved the issue. Firefox, and only Firefox, is still enormous.

I have Firefox 103.0.2 and have enabled the use of style sheets in about:config. I have a CSS style sheet userChrome.css that is giving me color at the top heading and in the tabs, except for the active tab (is white)

I'll list the CSS and see if you can give me some guidance in what i need to do to put some roundness in the top corners of the tabs. the UserChrome.css file .titlebar-color{ color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor; } .tab-background{ border-radius: 5px 5px !important; margin-bottom: 0px !important; } .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected=true]):not([multiselected=true]) .tab-background{ background-color: color-mix(in srgb, currentColor 5%, transparent); } menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem{ padding-block: 2px !important; min-height: 0px !important; }

root{

--arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 2px !important; }

The whole top is solid color (same as Windows color, which is ok by me. However, it would also be nice if there were a dividing line or separation between the menu on top and the "tabs" below. Any ideas would be great! Thanks!! Vern

Firefox just changed.

For over a decade I had a Bookmarks tab on my Bookmark menu, and now that's gone away. I have that whole setup very keenly arranged with folders-in-folders and now I either have to futz with several more buttons than I used to, or do a pop-up window with Ctrl+Shift+O to manage bookmarks when all I want to do is go to my bookmarks menu as before, select the right folder-in-folder, and then "Open all Tabs."

How do I get a Bookmarks icon to click as before without going into another menu for do the Manage Bookmarks when I don't need to manage anything? Speed and accuracy is important, and this is neither fast nor accurate without that icon/tool.
