Firefox's onboard spellchecker needs to go back to college, or probably high school! Every day I have several words with the dotted underline, telling me they're not words, or not spelled correctly. However, when checking the dictionary, I confirm that the spell-check feature is wrong, and I am correct! I don't want to disable it completely, as it does let me know when I've made a typo, which I can quickly correct, but it's a pain in the butt to keep having it say something's wrong with a word, and there's not... I honestly can't believe it can be that hard to use a source that's accurate, when it's something on everyone's screen that uses Firefox...

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.

I am trying to read and respond to comments on articles on the Foxnews.com site. I have been doing this for a long time, Suddenly I can not.

Using iMac with latest SW. Firefox latest version. Also tried Chrome and Safari.

When I go to their home page my computer is logged in as usual automatically. However when I click on an article it displays the article but the comments section is never displayed and my computer is not logged on on that page, Nor is there a button to login again.

I have turned off tracking protection. And listedf the website as to allow ads etc I think, Not sure about the latter,


Baffling me. Any help would be nice.

I run FF on both a Windows machine and a MacBook Pro. On the MBP the browser does not save my tabs, despite "restore previous session" being selected. I do not have this problem on the Windows machine.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser but it has not made a difference.

I'm running the latest version of the browser and the OS is Big Sur.

Hello My desktop Firefox (iMac) did an automatic update and now I have the floaty tab redesign and I intensely dislike it. Is there a way to make the tabs look like how they did before? I am so unhappy. It's ugly and I can't tell the tabs apart very well (they have no dividing graphics). I am this close ---><--- to Time Machining myself back to the previous Firefox version. Help?

I'm not sure if this problem arose with the latest Firefox upgrade (I'm running MacOS 10.14.6 on an older MacbookPro) or has just appeared after a few days of use -- I think it's the latter. But I can no longer rearrange the sequence of tabs in a window, an absolutely essential feature. There's a contextual menu choice that gives me the option of moving a tab to the beginning, end or a new window, but that only helps in ~10% of situations. What gives??

I'm on a Mac, running Catalina, with 64 GBs of RAM, and Firefox is using about 20+ GBs of RAM, and very high CPU usage. I keep trying new updated versions, hoping this will no longer be an issue, but it persists. Is there anything I can really do, to tamper it down?

I tried opening FF in safe mode, only to find several windows with several tabs on each GONE! Why should troubleshooting issues only make me more frustrated and ready to can this browser forever? Help should be help, not making things worse...

Hello, After a Firefox browser Mac OS update (89.0) the "send to device" doesn't work anymore. It is not really that it does not work, the function is no longer available through the three points that were located in the toolbar. The three dots have disappeared from the browser.

On the contrary, in my Android Firefox (89.1.1 Build # 2015812947) the three points are still in place, and therefore I can access "Send to Device". The function was working yesterday. I was sending few Tabs from my Android to my Mac. But not today, the dots are there, the "Send to Device also, but is not working.

Also from Android to my PC is working, I can receive Tabs from my Firefox installed in my Android. I can't find the version. From PC well, the three dots also have disappeared from the browser.

Any help appreciate, thatks

Hello,

I was wondering if there is any way to increase the font size of the tabs and the bookmarks bar in Firefox. I'm using macOS Catalina, and the text appears tiny, making it very difficult to read.

I have found the following suggested fixes, but neither provides a satisfactory solution:

Theme Font & Size Changer: appears to have lost most of its functionality in the newer versions of Firefox.

'Changing the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx value in about:config: this does indeed scale the size of the tab and bookmarks text, however, I'm using two screens, and the scaling does not match between the two. When the font appears big enough on my attached screen, weirdly the font on my laptop screen becomes even smaller than at the default -1 value. And if I increased it to the right size on my laptop screen, it become ginormous on my attached screen (see attached screen shots).

Any solution to save my poor eyes from straining would be appreciated,

Best wishes,

Veronika

Recently Firefox (both regular and dev edition) started showing monospace fonts in SF Mono Heavy variant. I use macOS 11.4 and Firefox Developer 90.0b6 but it happens with Firefox 89.0 as well, even in Troubleshooting Mode.

Below is a screenshot of a GitHub page. The same page rendered in Safari or Chrome on the same device show normal variant of SF Mono. Notice that the code on the page is rendered in heavy weight.

Running inspector mode shows that Firefox selects SF Mono Heavy even though regular variant is clearly present in the system.

I have tried disabling hardware acceleration and webgl. Are there any other ways to troubleshoot and fix the bug?

This is only a Firefox problem, and I am able to use my back button normally in other browsers.

When I click back on my mouse after I am done reading a page, rather than going back a page it just assumes that I want to autoscroll, and allows to me scroll up and down the page rather than go back. How can I fix this? Most current version of Firefox on macOS.

This also is affecting the forward button on the mouse as well, it also goes to autoscroll. Scroll wheel click functions as normal (autoscrolling).

What can I do?

Hi I recently started using 2FA on my account. Unfortunately i have forgotten the back up password so can't access my encrypted accounts.. I contacted Authy and they said; " the best approach is to contact each service you have a 2FA token for in Authy and ask them to disable 2FA on your account so that you may regain access. This is needed because Authy doesn't store your passwords on our servers as a security measure to protect your accounts. " So how do i disable in Firefox? I don't see an option in settings. Thank you
