I'm trying to find an answer to a question about Thunderbird. I type it into the "Find help..." box. I get a page with a small number (maybe 10?) results. The first page of results doesn't seem to help. Neither do the next five pages. I suggest letting users choose the number of results per page. Being forced to click the "next" link on every page is slow and tedious. Hitting the "Page down" key on my keyboard is much faster, partly because I don't have to use the mouse.

## Firefox fails to use some local fonts

After installing the Native MathML extension (to get MathML typeset equations on the Wikipedia, as suggested on mediawiki.org), all equations set by MathJax/MathML turned to using STIX instead of Latin Modern. I'd like them to stick to Latin Modern instead.

The only possibly related setting I've found is font.name-list.serif.x-math in about:config, whose value is Latin Modern Math, STIX Two Math, […]. I tried to manually change the font family specification of some text to see if Firefox could use Latin Modern Math to begin with, but apparently it can't (see first screenshot attached), while it loads STIX allright (second screenshot). Latin Modern is not the first locally installed typeface I haven't been able to use, but it's the first one I have really tried to (I don't remember which one the other typeface was).

My Latin Modern font comes from TeX Live 2019 installed using the TUG installer, not Fedora's package manager. fc-list | grep -i "latin modern math" returns /usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/lm-math/latinmodern-math.otf: Latin Modern Math:style=Regular. I'm running Firefox 87 on Fedora 33.

I'm on Windows 10 Firefox 87.0 (64 bit). I have two firefox profile. The two prifile sync to my firefox account and have the same addons enabled.

I'm investigating for a cooky of one well defined site

Why I have different cookies for this site depending of the firefox profile active ? ( Of course firefox option cooKies are identical ) ( Of course if I check the cookies.sqlite of the two profile they are different for the same site )

Where I can check to discover this different behaviour ?

Hi,

So I have a kind of unusual problem. I am currently logged into my Firefox account (obviously) and have access to all my saved material/history. The problem is I do not know my current password (the ones saved in the password manager are old/not correct) and I can't reset it without losing all my info. This is mostly a problem because I want to activate Firefox sync on another computer. Does anyone know how I can find out my current password without resetting everything?

Thanks!

Nothing has worked; starting in Safe Mode; clearing my cache; disabling all addons; disabling my firewall; disabling my antivirus; even reinstalling.

I can download using other browsers just fine, but not Firefox for a reason I cannot figure out.

I just turned off AdBlock Plus in the Add-Ons screen and downloaded ublock origin to try it out. There is no icon for this new plug in to be found anywhere. I can manually go in and change the settings on this plugin in the add-ons screen but there is no icon anywhere to go in quicker or to show a report of how many items were blocked. When I try to Customize my toolbars, the icon is not available there either. The nearest threads I can find on this topic are from 2018 and their solutions are very basic use. Yes, of course I restarted the browser. TIA.

A couple of days ago after an upgrade to the latest Firefox (in Wndows 10) my default search engine changed to DuckDuckgo. Yahoo - which had been my previous default no longer appeared in list of options for search engines in Firefox options. Looking at other posts, I deleted search.json.mozlz4 and restarted Firefox. This time my default search is Google. Yahoo is still not an option. Can anyone help me to get it back please? ( I did notice some Yahoo extensions, but these don't seem to be straight search tools but have additional 'features' like putting up photos on every new tab)

On all other websites I can seen the scrollbar buttons but not on Youtube. I'm running Windows 10.

On Linux Mint MATE 20.1 (and Ubuntu 20.10) the scrollbar also looks different from the default theme.

This seems to be a problem being caused by "youtube.com".

Why is Firefox allowing websites access to the scrollbars? Does anyone know why this happens or if there is a solution?

Thank you.

Firefox auto update has stopped working for me. Neither of the settings, see attached screenshot do anything, all I get is a popup saying a new version of firefox is available with a link to https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/ I recently did a clean install of Win 10 pro x64 and this problem may have started then. I have another PC on the same network where auto download of updates are still working. Hopefully someone can point me to a way to get this working again.

I recently opened Firefox and it prompted me to create a new profile. I closed it up and reopened it 2-3 more times and it did the same thing. I created a new profile. My bookmarks immediately disappeared, and so did all of my old profiles. I have tried many online suggestions for restoring both. Firefox is up to date, and Windows has been recently updated too. I have an older (2013) Toshiba laptop. Any suggestions?

cześć, Posiadam OS Big Sur Mac Mini i mam pytanie, dlaczego na tym komputerze nie działa zapamiętywanie otwartych kart (przywracanie sesji)? Zaznaczyłam w opcjach: przywracanie poprzednich sesji, ale to nie działa. Nie rozumiem tego. Jak miałam Windowsa, to nigdy nie było z tym problemu. A pracuje przy kilkudziesięciu otwartych kartach i nie wyobrażam sobie, żebym miała je za każdym razem otwierać pojedynczo... Z jednej grupy wsparcia Apple dostałam informacje, że Mac ma swoją przeglądarkę: Safarii i żebym jej zaczęłam używać. Ale ja nie chcę innej przeglądarki. Mam za dużo zapamiętanych kart, żeby je przenosić i nie chcę uczyć się kolejnej aplikacji. Dodatkowo powiedziano mi, że Mac nie lubi innych oprogramowań niż swoje. Idąc tym torem, nie można by używać Photoshopa, Adobe PDF, i wiele wiele innych aplikacji, bo Mac ich nie wyprodukował... To jakiś absurd! Proszę o pomoc, jak otwierać przeglądarkę z kartami z poprzedniej sesji?
