Firefox recently changed my primary language on ALL WEBSITES from English to French. I've tried to reset default language to English using Options>Language but it doesn't make the change. I've refreshed Firefox. I've removed both French and English as primary language and then chosen English again. Nothing works. Thanks for assistance.

This is driving me crazy! I'm currently in Sweden and some multilingual websites keep reverting to Swedish. I don't speak Swedish at all and it's not even listed in the Firefox > Settings > Languages. Google.com and Google Docs are notorious for this. Oddly enough - never Youtube.

How do I prevent that? If it makes it easier I want literally everything in English.

Dear Mozilla and my fellow Firefox users, I was browsing Firefox like normal, only an hour ago. I had added in a few new extensions, reloaded the page, and while on Amazon, I noticed the screen was much larger. Parts of the page got cut off like where I would choose a category over in the left hand edge of the screen. I had also noticed the font looked significantly larger and areas on the toolbar like the area to enter a url and the search box next to it also look off. I had looked in the community message board and saw others having this issue after Firefox apparently upgraded to version 90. The large layout and chopped off left side are really throwing me off. I am using a Windows 10 64bit laptop. Is there any fix for this? Sincerely, Stacy Byers (aka rocknrollchick5)

I am pulling my hair out... I have used Firefox for years. Two days ago, Firefox stopped loading some (but not all) pages. It tries for a long time, then an error is given "The connection was reset. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." I have refreshed Firefox (tried multiple times). I have run in troubleshoot mode (tried multiple times). I have disabled all of the extensions I was using. I resorted to uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox (have done this twice now). Still, some websites are not loading. Examples include weebly.com, pandora.com, dictionary.com, and other websites that I have built with weebly. These websites load fine if I use Chrome. I am using Firefox 90.0 (64-bit) and Windows 10 Home that is completely up-to-date.

Does anyone have an idea of what happened? I really don't want to resort to using a different browser.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Everyone, When I try to access a particular website, there is no real graphical display - simply text scattered everywhere.

I visit loads of different sites each day, and this is the only one where this problem occurs.

The website Owner thinks it might be something to do with a CSS file(?) but, as I do not have the problem elsewhere, I am unsure.

If anyone can help on this, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.

I cant access specific greek websites like culture.gr, mfa.gr, idika.gr, eprocurement.gov.gr Chrome and Edge have no problem accessing them. Firefox version is 91 (win10) Thanks for your help.

web page message:

The connection has timed out

The server at culture.gr is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Hi community.

A week or so ago, all the fonts on LinkedIn turned white against the white background of the page. The page works fine in other browsers. I haven't installed any new extensions but I did try refreshing Firefox to no avail.

Does anyone have any additional ideas for me to try?

Sometimes, I try to click on a link from a page to open in another tab. Firefox opens a new tab, loads part of the page then closes the tab again. If I click on the link a second time, it will sucessfully load the new tab as normal.

This can happen even with a link from Email to Reddit or some such and firefox will start up, partially load the tab and close down again. It's really frustrating.

I've been putting up with it for about 3 months on Win7 thinking it might be my system was overloaded with junk. But I recently upgraded my PC completely, (CPU, Memory, Motherboard and Graphics) and installed Win10 on it and a fresh install of Firefox. It's still happening. It's nothing to do with hardware acceleration or such, this is a totally new PC and a fresh install of Win10 and Firefox with no tweaks.

It's driving me nuts because I want the page to open but I sometimes have to click on the link twice to open it. It's like Firefox is treating the new tab as a popup and closing it.

Hello I have recently updated the photography section of my website, which you can see at http://www.dominicsimpson.co.uk/photography.html

There are 100 photos on there, yet Firefox is missing the first few. I am baffled as to why this is happening. If you view the page in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, you'll see that it displays all of the photos, yet Firefox only displays some of them.

I've checked the HTML and CSS, and they validate correctly.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards Dominic
