My home screen and all other browsing screens are so high and wide that I can't scroll down because the side slide bar is not on the screen. I have no idea how this happened! I can't find any articles that help me reduce the screen size that I can understand. There seems to be no solution option in firefox settings to adjust the screen size. The View tab does not help because it just offers zooming of the data on the screen, not the actual size of the screen.

Firefox Update 124.0.1 has deleted all my Bookmarks and History - can I get them back?

My Firefox Browser on (Windows 11) updated on 23rd March 2024. Now my History and Bookmarks have been deleted (but not cookies for some reason). yes, it is my correct profile as I checked the dates and also double checked it against a backup I made 2 weeks ago.

Have included an image of my 'more troubleshooting information' details - I'm sure this is supposed to have more data on the page?

If there is no way to recover my hisotry and bookmarks, I see there in my profile folder is a 'bookmarksbackup' folder which contains .jsonlz4 files, one of which was saved on the 21st March 2024. I know book marks are .json files, can anyone tell me how to turn a .jsonlz4 file to a .json?

[Oh, I pressed to add here my 'troubleshooting information' as directed by this forum page and it said it couldn't automatically do it, and when I pressed 'manual', it opened that over this page and so when I pressed 'back' it had naturally deleted this post so I've had to retype everything from memory, thanks so much Mozilla for that. How about a warning that this will happen?]

Starting about a week ago, when I use Firefox 124.01 on my Windows 10 PC to visit Ebay, the pages show in Portuguese, and the country shows as Brazil. I'm in the USA. This problem does not occur when I use Chrome, Opera or Edge. Any idea about why this has happened and what I can do to fix it. On Ebay, I can manually change the language and location, but if I close Firefox, the problem returns. I'm using the version of FF that keeps no cookies or history. Thanks

So on most sites there has been an issue for me for quite some time.

I hover over a link, the tooltip appears on the bottom left of the window showing the URL of the link. I click on link and page reloads but the tooltip is still on bottom left of the new window. The tooltip will disappear if I hover over any other link on the newly loaded page.

I expect the tooltip to go away when clicking the link and going to that page/site.

Firefox on win10 & 11 This problem does not occur in Edge.

I'm having a problem with websites not remembering my zoom percentage settings. The zoom settings were remembering on my administrator account until recently. The strange thing is that zoom settings on websites ARE remembered in my standard user account on the same device. I am talking about private browsing only & after I close the session & reopen another Firefox session. Thank you

Refer to the attached image ... I've looked thru history, bookmark manager, all the settings, and so on and this site cannot be removed from the URL suggestions! Your documentation suggested clicking a button on the far right, but it's non-existent. You also suggested to scroll down to highlight/select the URL and SHIFT+DEL, but that does nothing. I've been trying to get rid of this obsolete website link for over a year and it's an absolute mystery where the link is coming from and bugs me.

Had to click the text field 3 times just to write title to this post because I made a post on Twitter that's getting a bunch of interaction. Notifications take the cursor focus away from the text input field whether that's on a site or the search bar or the address bar. Very annoying. Windows 10, latest version of Firefox, but it also happened with the previous version. Please help!

Hi, All my tabs and many pages are appearing in an unreadable nonsense font. This page is ok, except for the tab and url; others, such as the settings page, are entirely garbled. When I copy a snippet of this and paste elsewhere, it shows up as English; so it is a display issue, not a new language.

This started on booting the machine today, after some OS upgrades yesterday. (to OS 13.1). I've tried restarting FireFox.

I can't read the settings page well enough to change much there. But this seems like a different issue anyhow. Help please!

thanks Sarah

Hello,

I have tried to download the newest VDH Companion App (via the link on the github.com webpage) Seven (yes, 7) times and every time the download Fails or I get "Zero bytes". I tried to contact "Support" but there is only a Support Forum and nobody else has posted this as an issue that I was able to find when I searched. So no support is offered. The website suggests that I create an account to be able to post a new issue. However, Every time I have tried to set up a github.com account, I am Unable to do so. The page to set up an account either doesn't load OR if it loads, I can not add any information to it. I am a VDH Registered User and until this morning, the current VDH app I am using, version 8.2.1.1 was working just fine. But now when I try to use it, it says that my VDH Companion App needs to be updated. But I can not even download it to update it. I am running the current version of FF, 123.0.1 on an iMac with Sonoma OS 14.4. We used to be able to email Mig but not anymore. The github.com support page is unwieldy at best and I see that numerous requests for help or support have not been answered or even acknowledged. I am a paid Registered user with a license, but that doesn't seem to matter. I, like many others from what I read online, count on using this app almost every day and I would think that the mechanism for updates should be working correctly. The update files I tried to download came across at crazy low speeds, like 20.1 to 40.5 Kbps! I spent over an hour with Tech Support for HughesNet and much to my chagrin, No Other Websites had any issues with download speed. It was only happening on the github.com website and this one file update. Sorry if TMI but I am just trying to thorough.

Starting this morning I suddenly cant delete or mark emails as read in Outlook.live.com. Even if I open an email, and it appears as read after that, if I refresh or leave the page and come back, its marked as read again.

I tried dropping all add-ons (a kill switch to drop all add-ons and re-activate them is still a feature I feel Firefox needs, I have to click every single one of them every time) to no avail.

I was in the process of writing this question on the Microsoft forums (which is usually like whizzing in the wind) when I thought to try a different browser. I had zero issues and Outlook.live.com worked perfectly normal on Microsoft Edge.

This HAS to be a bug in a recent update in Firefox

Something is going on with Firefox. Web pages will not load, and the error message is "we could not verify the certificate: reason = timeout".

My internet speed is 400Mbps. I don't have a delay here. I've rebooted the PC, restarted Firefox, and about 3 out of every 5 web pages comes up with this error.

I couldn't even get to the Mozilla support site with Firefox. I had to use a different browser.

What's going on?

I set up my Home Page with 3 rows of my own shortcuts (sponsored shortcuts are turned off). All were pinned and alphabetized. If I go a couple hours without using Firefox, about half of my shortcuts will have been replaced with others. None will be in order. Have tried setting up the Shortcuts several times, is really getting exasperating. Is there a simple fix in about:config?
