In settings I've found font settings. My default font is DejaVu (Serif, Sans, Mono)

After changing font (type and size) noting is going on. Even after restart. I disabled option to let wep pages set their own font.

The most important thing for me is to have working "Minimal font size".

To sum up. I can change everything in advanced font settings but there is no result on web pages.

Due to printer software I am forced to migrate family laptop from linux mint to windows 10 Both systems use version 82.0 (64bit), firefox just got installed on fresh windows 10 install, I opened it browsed a little to create history files and closed to swap it with linux history/passwords/tabs/bookmarks But in windows 10 firefox seem to have different file structure, and didn't recognize old version Have file structure changed or there are steps I missed or (unlikely) I messed up with file location, main mozilla/firefox folder path is still there

Will online synchronization of firefox just be as good as hard file copy from one system from another? I think this might be easiest, yet not perfect solution

Hello all I have a site that I log into to manage different things and everytime I go the help section it asks me to relogin. I contacted the support for this site and they say it is a problem of cookies or cache. However, even after I have wiped the cookies and delete the navigation history, I cannot log in.

Is there a magic way to clean cache and cookies, thank you

Nationwide has decided recently that my firefox is not up to date and got me to delete bookmarks, then delete the cache. and some thing to do with the browser. I may have to ask them again as I have deleted bookmarks and updated but they still don't accept me or say there is a problem. any idea what I need to do with my browser? Things have worked well for years but no more. And being put back to my tortuous login every time is driving me mental. Best regards, Don.

Hi! Does anybody know how to disable browser closing by ctrl+q shortcut? It is too close to ctrl+w and sometimes I close the whole browser instead of one tab. Moreover it is really useless and stupid feature since I have alt+f4. Why I need another shortcut which do the same stuff? And why developers ignore this issue which was reported on several forums? I tried install extension which disable it but it doesn't work for me.

I get an error message now when I try to log in to my bank. I have 2 pc's, one Linux, the other Microsoft and Firefox on both. I get an error message when I try to log in-PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR. How do I fix this or is it the bank's security certificate not keeping up? If I use the Edge browser, I can log in, just not on Firefox. I have no problem with any other website.

Firefox Automatically Redirecting from HTTP to HTTPS [Resolved]

I just hit a bug in Firefox that was a real time eater for me.

Firefox was automatically redirecting to https for a website even when I typed in the full url http://192.168.138.210:80. It would always redirect even if there was no server listening at port 80! Even, if I added query parameters like ?q=123456, it still did it.

I had set up the web server to listen on port 80 at 192.168.138.210 and I could never get firefox to load the http page. I created a simple node http server and the same issue occurred. I finally realized that it was the browser was doing the https redirect. I disabled all extensions and it still occurred. I tried `Private Window` and the issue went away. Chrome was fine. I also tested `wget` and it was fine.

Once I realized the Firefox profile was the issue, I then cleared the cache in the browser and presto, problem went away.

I cannot repeat this error in Firefox so a Bug report is probably not warranted. In hindsight, I should have made a copy of the profile :(

Hope this information helps someone else avoid the pain of this and also a simple warning to those testing new web servers, don't assume any complex web browser is doing the right thing, use simple tools like wget or netcat to see whats going on at the lowest possible level before passing blame.

Here are a couple of goto *nix tests I have used:

Netcat trick to send a request to http://192.168.138.210:80/ % printf "GET / HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n" | nc 192.168.138.210 80

Handy wget script that gives all the necessities of more complex calls like https for troubleshooting certificate resolution etc.: % curl -v -I --insecure https://google.com 2>&1 | egrep -v '^> |^< |^{|^}|^* T|^* AL|^ 0'

I am positive about Firefox is the most secure browser and have evidence of it. Nevertheless the following site could traspass the Firefox barriers: https://www.eldestapeweb.com/ I am concerned on the survival of Free World and consecuently of Free Software. I guess the above mentioned site belongs to a parapolitical official organization. I consider that for it's job obtained tech help from some powerful international group. The average user of Firefox is unprevented of this issue. I am not asking for help in my behalf, because I have the necesary time to help myself. I suggest the Mozilla guys to investigate the facts. Sincery yours, Edgardo Colombo Buenos Aires.

Hi,

I have reinstalled my Debian, keeping of course my `/home`. New Firefox version is `68.12.0esr`. A new profile has been created, but I need the old one which I can set as default in the profile manager at the url `about:profiles`, but Firefox tells me "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history.....". So, it seems I need to install the same version of Firefox I had before, but I don't know which one it was, and I would like to avoid to make many trials.

Is there a mean to know which Firefox version is associated to a given profile?

I am using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and until yesterday all was fine. However today when I accessed BBC news the website displays okay until I click on any of the video news clips.

I cannot work out what is blocking the video content.
