Firefox displays some wrong letters on my MacBook Pro, even though I let the website pick its own fonts.

Numeral 'nine' displays as 'hyphen', 'semicolon' doesn't display at all, 'x' displays as 'quotation mark'. Using Firefox Quantum 69.0, MacBook Pro (2015) with MacOS 10.1… (read more)

Numeral 'nine' displays as 'hyphen', 'semicolon' doesn't display at all, 'x' displays as 'quotation mark'. Using Firefox Quantum 69.0, MacBook Pro (2015) with MacOS 10.14.6. Have run lots of tests with other web sites and browsers, esp. Safari, no such probs with those.

Ok, I get it. Flash will be abandoned in 15 months time. Who can actually do something about this? The developers of sites that use flash. So why am I being punished? Why do I need to click 3 times additionally for something I have exactly zero, zip, null, no influence over whatsoever? Speaking about user friendliness, this is NOT it. Apart from downgrading or reverting to another browser that has not implemented this ridiculous anti-user-friendiness measure, what can I do?

Force firefox to use unicode

I've had a problem on a particular page on my website that has resisted all attempts at analysis and fixing for years: the page renders in Western font in my FF browser (in all my PCs), whilst in a colleague's browser (from another country) it renders fine in Unicode. It also renders fine in Unicode on my PC when using Chrome, and Edge, and Opera. Only Firefox is a problem.

I would be happy if I could just tell FF to render every single page I ever visit in Unicode by default. But I have go to View > Text Encoding > Unicode every single time I visit this page.

For info, I'll paste everything in the page before the <body> tag:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <title>xxx</title> <base href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/admin/Gross_Profit_Reports.html"></base> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reset.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/text.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/images/favicon.gif" /> <script src="../js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="../js/jquery.stickytableheaders.min.js"type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script src="../js/sspextras.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="../js/common.js"></script> <meta charset="utf-8"></head>


Although we use <meta charset="utf-8"> now, we've previously had it as <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">, but that has been similarly unsuccessful.

I'm happy to make changes on the browser side in the webpage, but I really want to solve this. Grateful for any help.

I downloaded the new Firefox and now it makes me sync every time I boot up the computer and forgets all my passwords. (so the routine is now turn on computer, login into firefox, login into email, confirm sync, THEN do anything else on my computer). How do I permanently have it remember the sync and open the tabs from last time upon opening firefox?

Hello and thanks in advance for your help!

For many years, the content management system that I have been using has worked just fine with previous versions of Firefox. To access the backend area for a client of mine to edit their own website I built for them, they would go to their website and hit Control-Y on any page of their website. This would bring up the login prompt window so they could login and start live editing their site. Now, when I hit Control-Y, nothing happens.

I saw a previous post that mentioned adjusting (allowing) keyboard shortcuts in the settings area. I did this but unfortunately, this didn't solve my issue.

Can someone tell me why this no longer works with Firefox and what the possible fix / workaround might be?

Thank you so much!!
