1) When I played a video on Youtube with Firefox via my computer speakers, they worked flawlessly. 2) Then I plugged in my headphones via the headphones jack, there is no sound. 3) I went to Windows settings and checked the volume mixer and tested the sound, the headphones worked. 4) I opened Edge and played a video on Youtube, the headphones work flawlessly. 5) I played a video through my media player, the headphones work flawlessly.

So my conclusion is that it is Firefox that is broken.

I closed Firefox and restarted it and tried steps 1 to 5 above, still got the same results. Firefox did not play any sound over the headphones while all the others worked flawlessly.

I restarted my computer and tried the steps again and still got the same results.

I also deleted Cookies and Site data from Firefox settings and still no luck.

Any suggestions?

I can no longer use Yahoo Mail on Firefox and have had to move to Chrome and Bing in the short term.

1) Contacts no longer show up when starting to compose a mail

2) Writing a mail - the CTRL key no longer work. CTRL I opens a Page Info CTRL B Opens Bookmarks etc....

3) None of the buttons work at the top -Move -Delete -Spam

Basically, Firefox is useless for Yahoo Mail now!

Firefox is normally the best, but not yesterday or today.

Hope it can be fixed soon.

I logged into my website using Firefox, 3 days ago and blamed the server for not allowing the images to appear in the Media Library properly. It took several attempts before the images would appear properly.

Today, when trying to upload a tiny 43KB image, the same issue happened, and again I blamed the hosting server.

However, I have tried uploading the same image to 5 different websites, using Firefox and the SAME thing happens. This time, it doesn't matter how many times I upload and delete the same image. It simply refuses to be displayed.

Back to the site I want the image uploaded in, and I used the Opera browser... POOF! Image uploads FINE and displays PERFECTLY in Opera, as well as AFTER logging out. Checking with the Brave browser, yes, it too sees the image... but when I try viewing the page in Firefox, the browser REFUSES to load the image.

I've tried 2 different computers using 2 different IP addresses, and an Android device, using Firefox and NOPE, the image REFUSES to load.

What is going on... am I the ONLY one experiencing this issue?

I've cleared cookies, I've rebooted my working computer... I've exhausted EVERY attempt at my end in trying to figure this out.

Can ANYONE shed some light on this issue please? I have many visitors to all of my sites that use Firefox, so this HAS to be resolved a.s.a.p.

Thank you in advance, Trish

I was browsing a site when suddenly most of the text got almost unreadably small. I was just scrolling and I don't think I had my hand on the keyboard so I don't think I accidentally activated a shortcut. I checked on another site and I noticed it's now a different font than it was before. I tried reloading firefox and my laptop and it didn't change anything. What did I change? My default font setting is lora, which isn't the font things have changed to

Hello all,

I'm running Version 108.0.1 on a mid 2015 Macbook Pro MacOS 12.6.2 Today I went to do a translation using the "to google translate" add-on and noticed it was missing from its place in the context menu. I go to "get more add-ons and re-installed it.

So why was it uninstalled without my consent? What can I do to stop this happening again?

Anyone experienced this before?

Hi, Description: Sometimes when I move my cursour over certain elements on a website, black or white Blocks appear. These Blocks are always rectangular but usually not sqare. Oftentimes the block will have Diagonal lines running up to the top left corner of the Box. The apperance seems to be connected to mouse movement. They pop up and dissapear only when the mouse is moved. And stay when they have appeard and the mouse isn't moved. Esspecially highliting things makes them occur. Example images are provided. Occurance: They are not limited to one website, though they don't seem to appear everywhere. Their occurace seems to be consistent. They are not limited to websites however. White boxes can also appear over highlighted text in the URL, regardless of the website. Example image is attatched The Boxes occur in no other Browser and in no other Programm. They have been there for a while, so it's not the version. Tried Fixes: I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. The boxes also appear in Private windows. I used the suggested feature for removing all settings and addons. Interestingly if I run firefox in Troubleshooting mode none of the Boxes appear.

Like I said, I only have these issues in the Firefox browser, so if it is a problem with my system itself I'd love to get your Ideas to what might cause them.

But if I then switch to Microsoft Edge browser using its private window I have no problem, no delay, in logging in. It has occurred to me that Edge is deliberately blocking or somehow delaying my login attempt with Firefox. Could this be?

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.

Hi all,

Had my text font changed all of a sudden. I'm not sure if I've accidentally pressed a shortcut to change any setting.

Image attached also show that this change has caused some misaligned numbers on a browser.

Is there a way to revert text to my previous settings?
