Firefox was working normally earlier in the day. I'm not aware of any updates on my computer. I didn't install add-ins. When I click the firefox icon to launch the program, the cursor momentarily has the hourglass symbol then nothing happens. There is not error message. Firefox is not shown in the task manager list. The firewall has mozilla firefox in the list of allowed programs. I've tried rebooting, reinstalling, the refresh tool, deleting appdata files, temp files, anything I could find in the registry with mozilla in the name, then rebooting again then reinstalling. I don't want to go back to Chrome... =(

After Firefox v82.0 installed itself it screwed up my LastPass. When I click on the LastPass icon it begins flickering up and down so fast that I can't see exactly where to click to continue with LastPass. I may have to click 10-20 times before I randomly hit the right place. LastPass apparently interprets each missed click as a log on attempt and has now locked me out of my account.

I don't have this problem with other browsers like Edge, but its too late for me now.

Right, so, this is genuinely a weird one - Wherever the bottom of my scrollbar is, whenever I scroll, it will have a tearing effect on the text above and below it- as if its trying to decide "Am I up here? or down here?" I have no way of capturing this via screen shot, I've disabled Hardware acceleration for a previous issue (Firefox would flicker on certain pages, and outright crash). I can't find an issue with my graphics drivers, as everything else runs and works as standard as normal. It's only firefox that has this issue, as Edge and Chrome work perfectly fine.

Hello, I just recently installed FF 82 on my Mac (Catalina) and noticed a weird bug when printing PDF files.

The printed page seems to have extra margins on the Top and left, so some of the info is printed off the page.

My FF version is not using the new print prompt that looks like Chrome's.

1) The document size is Letter 2) Printing with Letter paper selected and scale 100%. 3) Didn't change any margins or other settings. 4) Attached is what I got from the printer.

Is this a bug? Has anyone noticed something similar?

When I try to print a document, including from your frequent questions site, the right and left margins are equal to 1 3/4 inches even though on the web site the margins are set at .5 inches. I have tinkered with all the available options but no matter what I do the result is 1 3/4 inch right and left margins.

This also happens when I try to print a document from Vanguard's message center.

How do I resolve this matter

How do I completely remove all traces of Firefox from my windows 10 OS? Note: This is why, After windows ask me to run your application or program or software, and I click the yes button after I had done that it doesn't do anything after that and then it just repeatedly does this, and I had used windows uninstall program and I uninstall Firefox then I had reinstall it and it still did the same exact thing that I had mentioned above "even tried using the Windows Registry Editor too!"

Note for years I had used your browser and hardly had any troubles with or problems with your browser

On late Monday this week, my Facebook pages were drastically altered by Facebook, later in the day. Earlier that day and ever since I have used Firefox as my browser, there were never any problems. I received a notice from Facebook, after I signed in again later in the evening that Facebook, that my browser is no longer supported by Facebook, so my pages were changed , "to offer a better experience " when using Facebook.. The pages are now narrowed, that I cannot read the entire comments anymore. I know that Firefox is indeed is a browser that is accepted by Facebook, so this is puzzling why this change was suddenly made. I have the browser updated with the latest update. I cleared my cache, as Facebook mentioned in the FAQ's, but it still is the same. Is there something I can do on my end to resolve this issue on my end? Facebook does not offer any help for specific questions, other than FAQ's. Thank you.

After doing a refresh I can't read the words/letters, this has happened before, and I can't remember how to fix it! Part of each letter and words are dark and some light. Like one side of the letter is light and the other side, top or bottom is dark.

The letters in words are not uniform, one side, top or bottom is dark and the other is light. It makes it very hard to read. I've tried to copy something to show but can't. Even in what I'm typing here now I can see the difference. Like the p in copy is dark on one side and the other is light. This has happened before, but I can't seem to find or remember what I was told to do to fix it. The "e" had a dark straight line and the "c" part is light Very frustrating!

1. Yahoo is or has closed my account because I chose not to upgrade to their new system. How do I change my Firefox account using my new email (dick.nehls@wavecable.com) ? 2. for some time I have been unable to print articles from the internet using Firefox while I can with Microsoft Explorer. I prefer to stay with Firefox except for this one inconvenience. I mentioned this to my printer support (Brother Printer) and they said that they could not help me and that I would need to go to Firefox Support.

My old Yahoo may not be working so please use my new email (xxx @wavecable.com)

Thank you very much for your help
