Hello.

I'm experiencing some strangeness with the spellcheck on Firefox and would like to know if anyone can help.

I often seem to mistype "don't" as "don;t." Same with "won't." Firefox does not mark these as incorrect. But if I type "shouldn;t" or "couldn;t" I get a red underline.

Is there something I can edit to get those words with a semicolon to be marked as misspelled?

I'm using FF 91 on Win 7. But it's been this way for a long time, many different versions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

bold textSomething is blocking my access to a site I've used often. There is no longer a menu on Firefox that allows me to see what my current settings are before, if needed, changing them. It could be my pop up blocking settings. Do not know. Am trying to access Keenan online classes. Did you all change access?

This is the site that I need to access: (PLEASE HELP) https://scusd-keenan.safeschools.com/

Firefox not showing the "X" in Settings checkboxes!

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Thanks!

Hardware video decoding not working

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

Sorry, I wasn't sure which topic this question fell under. I created my Firefox account in 2017 and have forgotten my Password. However, since creating my account in 2017, I've NEVER SIGNED OUT. Until I hopefully remember my password, I don't plan too.

Question - If I am signed into my Firefox account, as I have been since 2017, and get to a point (when updating or changing my settings, add-ons, etc) where it asks me to re-enter my Password, is there a set number of password sign in attempts before it locks me out? And, if it locks me out after so many incorrect attempts, does it also sign me out of Firefox as well OR do I stay signed in? Hopefully I explained my question.

I really don't want to lose my data with Password reset, so I'm trying find ways help me recall my correct Password. Thanks for any info. Kurt

After the most recent update, currently on 92.0, the Minimize, Maximize, and Close buttons are invisible. They are still there and I can get the tool-tip if I hover over them with the mouse, but visually they are completely gone.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

I remember seeing somewhere that -moz-box-ordinal-group does not keep assigned values in userChrome if the value is changed after being set the first time. This certainly seems to be the case -

With the following I had temporarily set the value to '1' but then set it back to '2' - it no longer works.

#clearDownloadsButton {
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}

Am I missing something?

I have managed to transform / rotate almost all of my various buttons, bookmark folder icons & site favicons and also other icons like in the appmenu and the locationbar/ac_popup pane various search favicons along the bottom of that panel. (see below code)

However I have been unable to achieve the same with the follow areas: - bookmark/history sidebar. - menubar History and Bookmarks drop down menus & submenus. - locationbar/ac_popup panel site favicons


/*************************/ /* ROTATE ICONS ON HOVER */ /*************************/

/*rotate icons on hover*/

  1. nav-bar toolbarbutton:hover > .toolbarbutton-badge-stack,

checkbox:hover > .checkbox-check, menuitem:hover > hbox > .menu-iconic-icon, toolbarbutton:hover > image, button:hover > .button-box > .button-icon {

 transform: rotate(30deg) !important;
 -moz-transform: rotate(30deg) !important;

}

/*rotate icons on active (clicked)*/

  1. nav-bar toolbarbutton:active > .toolbarbutton-badge-stack,

checkbox:active > .checkbox-check, menuitem:active > hbox > .menu-iconic-icon, toolbarbutton:active > .toolbarbutton-icon, button:active > .button-box > .button-icon {

 transform: rotate(75deg) !important;
 -moz-transform: rotate(75deg) !important;

}

/*if it doesn't have this then the icons get swapped to the other side on hover*/

  1. nav-bar toolbarbutton > .toolbarbutton-badge-stack,

checkbox > .checkbox-check, menuitem > hbox > .menu-iconic-icon, toolbarbutton > .toolbarbutton-icon, button > .button-box > .button-icon {
