Firefox causing double audio. Cancelling it allows one audio to continue, but stops the video part. Seems to only happen on Fox news since update. I can't figure out how to get an answer on this, or from this, unless it is to switch browsers. Too bad, I've run Firefox for a decade and liked it.

The last couple of days I've noticed that spellchecker is not working very well with Facebook comments. It seems to sometimes want to check only part of a word or do other strange things. I THINK it is only for the comments; it seems to be working ok when I write a post. Facebook is the only site where I've noticed an issue. Is this something that Facebook has done, or has an update to Firefox caused something to go wrong?

I have pulled up my about: config page for "spell" and am attaching a screenshot.

Thank you.

Since allowing an auto download of version 89.0.1 a few days ago my screen will frequently go to full zoom unexpectedly. I'm using an Apple magic mouse on my imac. Any idea why? Can I easily revert to the previous version of Firefox?

Browser will not update to 89.0.1 Message says it fails. I have reset, put in troubleshoot mode. Now browser is extremely slow . Lost addon buttons. LASS PASS does not work. Not even YouTube. I have lost almost all functionality. I even tried downloading a new install. Nothing seems to fix the issue. I have used FireFox for years and never had a problem like this. Help!

FF updated without warning this AM and now my bookmarks have gone. History is still there. Any solution. ? I have been getting more and more disappointed with some of these "upgrades" and have dropped it off my Android devices because of the stupid interface. Looks like I might have to drop it off my Win machines. Thanks Greg

I have the latest version of Firefox & my windows 10 update automatically. After the last Firefox update this week I will be browsing a webpage and all of a sudden a Bing page is loaded over the top with a preformatted search term as though I was searching for that term. It's really annoying as I've always preferred Google anyway. When I search for something in the address bar, it loads a Bing page, but when I open a new tab it loads my preferred page, Google with Firefox. I don't have Bing selected as a search engine in my options. How can I get rid of it please?

Changes in Firefox 89: I hate the new themes—where do I provide feedback?

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

When I use firefox on my main display (1920x1080 144h 16:9) in full screen there is a noticeable white line in the bottom, not using full screen fixes it, but a pain in the ass to resize it all the time. I tried using the browser on my secondary smaller display (1920x1080 60h 16:9) and there is no white line. This seems to be a bug, how do i fix it?

Recently the typeface on the browser became lighter, not bold as it was before. The browser lost all my auto-fill passwords and will not let me save any new or replacement ones. It will save them as long as I am in the browser, but once I exit out and go back in they are gone. What gives?

When I open a new tab and then search, and then try to search with google then search option does not provide me results. or if I try to even open google through the tab, Firefox does not provide me any results. This started happening recently. I have tried clearing the cache and cookies and the issue resolves for a bit and then starts again. I even have removed and tried a fresh install of firefox and I am still seeing the same results. I need help as this is getting annoying.

Hello Dear Folks.

Since the new Update 89.0 I've had issues with several websites not showing the text. As if it's written with "invisible ink". After marking it appears, its like black text on black background, or white text on white background. I have tried out different Themes, Addons, but none of them work. I didn't upgrade to 89.0, I think it happened automatically, because one day I just saw my Firefox layout beeing different. So it should have "auto-update" on. I have also attached images as examples.

Anyone else have these problems, is there any way to fix this or should I downgrade my Firefox version? Also my OS Windows 10 is up to the newest version.

If downgrading is the only fix, does it keep my "settings, passwords, profiles, bookmarks, etc"?

Thanks in Advance!
