Firefox's display language settings are not applying. I've set them to english, but it's still displaying everything in another language.

Menus on Firefox itself are displaying in my native language, when I've set them to English.

I've uninstalled all language packs that aren't English, even removed other languages in Windows settings to make sure Firefox displays menus in the language I want, but none of it worked. Already checked about:config and removed any traces of other languages. The settings page itself and other Mozilla webpages are all displaying in the correct language, but the application itself is not.

It started doing this after the most recent update, was working fine before. Only explanation is Firefox is using my location to set a language and completely ignoring my language settings. Should I just wait for it to be fixed?

I run Firefox on several different machines and OSs. I have been using Firefox Sync for history and bookmarks, but not logins. I'm interested in using it for logins as well. I have many logins stored on each Firefox that I use. Some of them will overlap. Some of them will overlap *and* be different (because some are out of date). I do not want to lose any logins.

If I enable logins in Firefox sync, what will happen to my existing saved logins?

What happens to clashes between logins saved on the different instances of Firefox?

Thanks.

Good day all,

When I try to send email using Outlook web from the Firefox browser, I often get a failed to send error message. When I deactivate AVG I'm once again able to send a message. This doesn't happen when I use other browsers like Chrome or Internet explorer. There seems to be a compatibility issue with Firefox. Anyway around this? Thanks.

I wrote an application that dynamically creates report and (using the printElement jQuery plugin) prints them to either a printer or to PDF.

$('.print-container').printElement({

   pageTitle: $('div.edit-title').text(),
   overrideElementCSS:[ 'print_css', { href:'css/print.css', media:'print' } ]
});

This has worked well for 5 years but, over the last weekend, even with the config set to print.print_bgcolor = true, no background colours or images are being printed any more. This happens with printing to a printer or to a PDF file.

As above. FF installed the update despite the checked option to NOT install automatically. NO "old firefox" folder was created-anywhere. No other profile is present that has the old data. My adult daughter's grad school laptop. Years of bookmarks, logins and I do not know what all ARE GONE!! I allowed FF to download but NOT INSTALL-since it was not my machine and I wanted to avert any disaster (I, in fact, looked at the options first, to make sure) NOW WHAT?? Is that is a bug?? Why was there no "old FF" created? Why did it install regardless of instructions to the contrary. Is there some other place to look? She does not seem to have any automatic backups for FF profiles.

Youtube and other sites load very slow. Hangs on TLS Handshake fonts.googleapis. cant login in to google account. I get the message, "something went wrong". Tried all of the things suggested in the troubleshooting section to no avail. I don't have this problem with chrome or edge. I HATE both of those browsers and hope that this is a temporary issue with Firefox. Running win10 x64 with latest Firefox update. Is there anything that can fix this?

Thanks

How can I change the sizes of fonts and icons in the Menu and Toolbars?

I'm using Firefox 67.0 under MX Linux. My monitor is 25" with a resolution of 1920x1200. With this resolution, the text and icons in Firefox Menu and Toolbars are tiny and almost impossible to read. The Thunderbird add-on Theme and Font Size Changer works reasonably well for Thunderbird, so is there a corresponding add-on for Firefox?

I know that Firefox is largely developed by people who are volunteers, but it seems that a tool, as part of the basic Firefox program, should be available to make these changes without installing add-ons or modifying the code manually. Almost everyone needs to be able to tweak these things at one time or another.

Hello, I was wondering why I have to install extensions in order to prevent popup to appear. Right now, of course, popup are disabled in the option menu, I have two Adblocker (Plus and Ultimate and I need both, despite the subscriptions are almost identicals), Ghostery, Popupblocker and Behind the Overlay, but in some cases these are still not enough. I have to accept cookies (but not from third parties) and when I close the browser, everything is going to be deleted by custom settings. I do not have any malware/virus, I don't install random programs, I don't have any sidebar. I keep all the software up to date. Any suggestion? Am I doing something wrong? Thank you.

Cheers.

I refreshed Firefox to fix a problem of links not loading to no avail so I decided to reinstall. First I copied my profile folder. After reinstalling Firefox I was able to import my bookmarks from a previously exported backup. Here's the fun part...I am unable to find the new profile folder so I can copy my old password files into it. The new folder has only 6 folders and 1 file in it whereas the old profile folder had about 19 folders and 52 files. The 2 files I need to copy back into my new profile folder are logins.json and key4.db. So far I have been unable to Google any helpful support articles so I decided to try Mozilla support directly. I am desperate to restore my old files because if I have to manually copy passwords from a different Firefox installation it will take a loooong time.

By the way, the original issue of Firefox not loading has occurred on my other computer as well. Is the new version broken?

So I somehow broke mic permissions in discord on firefox. I can not get it to show the pop up to let me allow the mic, whenever I try to unmute I get this https://i.imgur.com/TkFKwpj.png (refreshing does nothing)but it never pops up and doesn't list mic permissions,only autoplay sound when I click on the lock icon. In permission settings under microphone discord isn't listed. I also know it isn't a discord thing because it works fine in the app, just not within firefox. Tried clearing cookies/site data for discord too, nothing seems to make the pop up appear. Also tried updating firefox, rebooting pc, nothing seems to do it.

Really at a loss of what to do to get it working.

I have a valuable history of browsing in Safari that I would like to bring over to Firefox. The only solution I have been able to find after an hour of searching is this product; iMazing. It appears to do just what I need, by exporting the Safari Browsing History from the database to HTML which it says can then be Imported into Firefox. Sounds good, but I would prefer to not have to buy a 3rd party product. Any clues? Thank you.

You used to be able to add a new folder by picking "new folder" and then add the name of the folder. Now when I want a new folder, that choice is not there. When I want to move a new folder, all I had to do was hit move to and a menu would appear of previous folders. And you had a chance to save a new folder if that was your wish, or scroll down and find a folder is already there. Now I do not have that choice to start a new folder.
