I was able to change the font in Ctrl J by changing my system font (windows 10, Firefox font used to automatically follow it). However after the latest Firefox update, that no longer works for Firefox (my system font is still OK). Please help me change the Libabry font again! The default font (probably SegoeUI) is very hard to read on my computer, it's blurry and comes in light gray.

Note: I'm not talking about the website font (it's fine and can be changed in Firefox settings). The library font size is fine too, only the font itself is too hard to read.

Note2: I tried changing my system font to other random fonts (using the registry), restarting my computer in between etc. That still works, but Firefox won't follow.

Been using FF since 2005ish. (Me 1946) Latest version (90.0.2 (64-bit) annoys me greatly because I can't remove the unwanted 'Pocket' BS. I've followed several online 'advices' on this, including this site, & still it persists.

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

Third visit. Tried all recommendations with no luck. Just turned off enhanced tracking protection, again, with no luck. Edge continues to work just fine. I am getting very close to the point where I simply purge Firefox from my computer, after I have been using it ever since it appeared on the scene years ago. I am at caribsailor@yahoo.com, which I will reach through Edge.

I tried to download a PDF file, but the download failed. However, Mozilla still thinks it's downloading, shows the download meter (stuck on about 10%), and shows the file in the downloads list, even though I have deleted it from the list ("Clear downloads"). Clicking the "X" next to the file name also does nothing. What's up?

When I open Google Maps it doesn't show the normal icons for navigation on the map. It doesn't do anything when I have hardware acceleration enabled and I type something in the search bar. If I disable hardware acceleration it does a search, but in no way can I get it to show the place I want to see. It just shows the map of Rotterdam, where Google thinks I live based on my IP address.

It does work in Safari though, so it's a Firefox problem. I hope you can fix it. Google seems to give the FF team lots of problems.

I get this recurring error when I access this site: "https://nikonrumors.com/". The issue comes and goes. May work fine for days/weeks.

Here's the kicker: MS Edge & Google Chrome do not have this issue. When it isn't working with Firefox 90.0.2 (win10), it always works with Edge & Chrome, like now as I post this.

I'd like to have, in my one firefox account, a 'private' profile with my private life bookmarks and a 'work' profile with my work life bookmarks. However, this doesn't seem to work. I open firefox with work profile and see my work bookmarks, then I close and reopen with private profile and see my private bookmarks, then I close and reopen again with work profile and now I still see my private bookmarks instead of my work bookmarks. Firefox just unsolicitedly takes the private bookmarks over to the work profile. This can't be how it's supposed to be, right? Because what would be the point of having different profiles? I hope you can help me with this.

For the last couple of months I've been having an issue with Firefox freezing when I bring up a news article on Yahoo. It only happens when there is a video attached to the article, the video and the text of the article won't load. After a few minutes there is a message saying "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". All of the Yahoo news articles work fine when I bring them up in Chrome. How can this be fixed??

I want to opt out of the new (slower than molasses) "trusted partner redirect" Firefox gave me ONE chance for 3 seconds before closing the option window.

This has resulted in slowing down an already too slow event in Firefox. This is why users are going to chrome.

It's a great idea as an option. Not a great idea to force it on users.

Thanks for your help,

When the DuckDuckGo Browser extension is added, it should show up in the top right of the browser with a website rating. When you click on this rating it will give you extra details, settings, and information. This is supposed to show up but it isn't for some reason and I don't know why. Any idea for what could cause this? I've tried rebooting the browser, uninstalling the add-on, then re-installing the add-on.

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

For about a month now I have had an issue with Firefox where suddenly the search bar (with Google search) stops working. I input text, press enter but nothing happens. No page is loaded. I see the google search URL that the browser is trying to reach, and I see in the network tool that the request is made but nothing appears after that. Page doesn't change and response is not registered in the network tool. Also, my GMail account tabs stop working, and trying to refresh them, GMail freezes while loading.

If I restart Firefox all starts working, until the problem starts happening again (can be minutes or hours, I guess it depends on usage)

Another colleague of mine has the exact same problem.

I tried with NO success: - Clearing all cache and data; - Disabling all extensions; - Running firefox in troubleshoot mode; - Refresh Firefox; - Complete uninstall, with profile folder removal and start from scratch; - Disabling hardware acceleration; - Setting "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar" to false; - Disabling "network.http.http3.enabled"; - Setting Proxy to "No Proxy";

All works on another browsers.

Can someone advise on how to further troubleshoot and fix this issue?

Good Morning,

I accidentally deleted my browsing history on Firefox for "all time". One of the pages I used to access an office email address on Outlook to which I have forgotten the passcode. I turned off the computer and turned it back on unfortunately. I am wondering if there is another way to find past browsing history?

Thank you.
