Hi, Using Firefox 92.0.1. On a AMD 5900x with an Nvidia 3090. Nvidia driver 471.68. Hardware decoding doesn't seem to be working correctly on any website. I noticed this as when I adjust video colours and 'edge enhancement' in the Nvidia control panel it has no effect in Firefox but it works in Chrome and Edge. Simply sliding the colour down to black and white for example doesn't work. In task manager GPU video decode is sometimes used, other times no utilisation. Even if it's showing GPU decode being used the colours or Nvidia enhancements do not apply as they do in Edge or Chrome. I tried refreshing Firefox and no change. Is this the intended behaviour or is there a long running bug as a friend also has the same outcome? Thanks

I use the 'Edit/Find in Page' (Cntl + F) to look for something on a web page and, once I find it, I turn if by re-entering Cntl + F. This no longer works the same on my FireFox. Cntl + F still turns on the search bar. But I can't find anything to turn it off. I have tried 'Cntl + F', 'Edit/Find in Page', and there is no 'x' to close the bar. How do I close the Find bar?

Thank you

When I use control-F to search in a page, a ribbon appears at the bottom of the page with a search bar and associated controls. Somewhere on that bar, there should be an "X" to dismiss the search. It's not there anymore. (See screenshot.) The only way I've found to dismiss the search is to put the cursor in the search bar and press the ESC key. That's a bother. This must be a new bug, right?

Even when I am writing this, I am unable to answer the question "Which topic best describes your question?" because its drop down menu is not readable and full of symbols. I reinstalled the Firefox but the problems persisted.

Furthermore, I also reset the all the fonts menu in the "about:config" and changed "layout.css.font-visibility.level" to 1. Sadly, there was no luck.

I'd appreciate any suggestions regarding solution of this problem.

It seems the folks there at Firefox central enjoy wrecking people's experience by frequently releasing new browsers that breaks what already in place. What the hell is wrong with you guys...?? Are you secretly employed by Microsoft and/or Google....?? Seriously, this is no way to run a browser company. It is, however, a great way to ruin one. Give us a break, and stop breaking our browsers. You ruin our experience, and you do it on a semi regular basis. It's all well and fine to release new stuff, with new features, but for the love of God if it's gonna break what we already have, at the very least offer us a way to keep what we have, and have it supported even in a minimal way, and branch off the new option. I get your fears, you fear that not enough people will opt for the new one like that, and you're probably right. That however, should tell you something.

We loyally support your project. That should be worth something. Thanks.

Why does Firefox keep telling me to update every time I log on, and several times while I'm logged on? These messages are very annoying and unnecessary! I don't need your updates! I don't want any update that removes the "back" button! I like using the "back" button. I allowed Firefox to update a while back, and it removed the "back" button, so I had to do a big system restore to get the back button returned! Please stop sending the update messages! Firefox works fine without the stupid updates. Allow the "Back" button to be used. NO MORE UPDATES! The update messages are so annoying, I'm about to quit using Firefox.

Using latest updated Windows 10 and latest updated Firefox 92.0, when I open up Google Maps and click on "Show your Location" button it shunts me off to the middle of Chicago, rather than downtown Menlo Park, CA.

I double checked whether my WIndows Settings were set to allow location, and it was still set to "On." I also tried using Chrome and there, everything worked as expected. I also tried Microsoft Edge, and there it was broken as well.

So, the problem could be with Windows or Firefox apparently...Not sure how to fix or at least work around the problem.
