TL/DR: See the image. ;)

I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 (Xubuntu flavor), using Firefox 79.0, working on a web site. I'm coding specifically for Arial... and it's returning Times New Roman.

I have Arial installed, via the ttf-mscorefonts package and also adding them from a Win10 box.

Please, no "But you should do 'font-family: Arial, Veranda, sans-serif'" dismissive answers. Why? Because if I do "font-family: Arial, Veranda" I still get Times New Roman. I can even substitute "Pulsar Beta" here (a font that is installed to my local account) and it still gives me Times New Roman.

If I do "font-family: sans-serif" I get Veranda, not Arial... which is odd because Arial is my default font.

Doing "font-family: Veranda" gets my Times New Roman.

Chrome doesn't have this issue!

As a picture is worth a thousand words, see the pic.

What can I do? I did see some bugs that were fixed in v56, but none of the debugging tips help there.

Hello. I ve got a big problem on my Firefox browser. When im using other browsers i dont have this problem, it s only on Firefox, but i love using Firefox and i want to fix it.

Problem which i have shows up on youtube and sometimes on twitch. When im watching youtube video in vp09 format there are absolutely no problems with frames but when a video is in avc1 format - boom i cant watch it because of super frame drops - like a 90% of total frames are dropeed.

Example video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr-zCc9VUto

My pc is not the best but not the worst, i dont think its hardware problem because as i said, on other browser i dont have this problem watching the same video it isnt dropping frames. CPU: Xeon X5450 GPU: GTX 660Ti RAM: 8GB

This problem is with me since about a year, i dont know when it happened. Please help me, how to fix it?

I was just using YouTube, clicked some button, and a pop-up video appeared that I could drag anywhere on the screen, even outside the browser window. It took me a while to realize that it's actually a pop-up window with no border, no file menu, no address bar! just a floating video with no border at all! Very creepy!

What is going on here? How can this be possible? Why is Firefox allowing this? Surely if sites are allowed to make windows pop up without borders, it represents a huge security risk? They could pretend to be anything - a message from Firefox, a Windows error message, anything at all. I am so concerned about this! I presume this is a new feature of Firefox and it needs to be stopped immediately!

Lately, Firefox seems to be giving more and more control over to web developers, and taking away more of the users' rights and security. It is worrying and I don't like where things are going. Why can't Firefox just concentrate on being a great browser instead of allowing developers to do new things?

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

I have used and updated Firefox for years. I am now on v79. And in my prefs.js file (about:config) there is tons of old crap. Things like references to old addons which cannot even be installed any more and were removed during updates, prtiner setup stuff for printers I no longer own, and something that is causing the rendering of chase.com to be messed up and the site unusable in FF.

Is there some reasonable way to clean up the prefs.js? Using about:config does not seem to remove entries, only reset them to default. If I exit FF and edit the file in my text editor, FF doesn't work right when re-started - I have to restore the profile folder from a backup.

There must be some way. Any help/tips?

Thanks

Since the last update, I am receiving the error message SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT when I access one website that I need to use as part of my work.

It is a trusted site that I have used for many years. The error message above displays and I get the option to retry which usually works, but I lose any content up to that point.

I have contacted the website owners as suggested and they say it is a Mozilla issue. I found a couple of suggestions to fix this on-line, but it did not work.

Can you help?

When I start Firefox only the focused page is loaded. All other pages are blank as I set 'Clear history when Firefox closes' to 'automatically clear' the cache on exit. If I click on another tab it refreshs it. How do I to get every page to load on startup? Firefox treats pinned and normal tabs differently. On restart I have to 'Select all Tabs', then 'Reload page' every time. It used to load all pages automatically but now it doesn't. | Is there an extension? Or an About:Config entry I can change or insert? Private browsing is not used. Pages are open in tabs not windows. I have 20+ tabs open all the time. About half are pinned. Side Note - I would be happy to see the "Reload All Tabs" menu option reinstated.

I take my privacy very seriously and have disabled a large number of Firefox features which erode my privacy, including geo.enabled, dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled, dom.battery.enabled, and many more.

Today I've just found a setting I've never noticed before which makes me really nervous: geo.provider.ms-windows-location

Can anyone please tell me what this does? Is it new? Why doesn't Mozilla have a page/resource explaining what all the preferences do and how to use them?

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

So I downloaded a few programs that were legitimate, no viruses or anything I checked, but also added a few programs. When I started seeing weird problems with firefox, I went to uninstall them from my windows, and I did. I uninstalled every program from today. But Firefox still won't let me search anything. When using the search bar, if it's one word, it'll search and automatically put other things in the search to make it look for a website. If it's more than one word, it just doesn't respond to me hitting enter or clicking the search button. I believe it's because Firefox seems to have lost all options for a default search engine. It has nothing selected for a default search engine, and whenever I click on it to show options, it just doesn't. Also, I have no weird add-ons that showed up, and the problem persists even when I disable every add-on I have. There are also no weird plugins. Can someone help? I'd rather not have to search google.com every time I want to search for something.

I installed the uBlock Origin add on to stop ads while watching youtube. I restarted the computer. uBlock Origin is in Add Ons, and is switched on. However, I am still receiving ads. First ad is before the clip plays. After 5 seconds, I can end the ad. Second ad is really intrusive. It interrupts the clip. Perhaps I misunderstood the capabilities of uBlock Origin, or how to use it. I would appreciate any recommendations Firefox version on my Windows 7 PC is: 79.0 (64-bit) Thanks.
