Hello, I'm using syncing for several years and now I had to reset my working laptop to default Windows 10 installation. So I installed also Firefox, loged in and was waiting for restoring of the bookmarks and the rest. What happened was the bookmarks were empty, only folders were restored. I saw the bookmarks for few seconds and then they dissapeared. And of course it synced the state into the rest of my devices. So I used one of the backups I do on many occasions. What happens is the bookmarks are back, but they're completely in reverse order. Everything is rotated and the splitters are at the bottom of each folder. Nothing helps, it's again synced into all my devices and I'm going crazy, because I put so much time in the past to organize the bookmarks and I have thousands of them. I have backups in json as well as in HTML, but the reverse order is terrible. What can I do? Best regards, Pavel

Having some issues with a couple of websites where the text seems to be really bold, also its getting mixed up and overlapping or doing strange line breaks (see attached image).

This seems to only be on Facebook messaging or Facebook Business suite. Also in eBay messages. I've noticed it on a couple of blog sites too.

What can I do to fix this? Thanks

Hello Dear Folks.

Since the new Update 89.0 I've had issues with several websites not showing the text. As if it's written with "invisible ink". After marking it appears, its like black text on black background, or white text on white background. I have tried out different Themes, Addons, but none of them work. I didn't upgrade to 89.0, I think it happened automatically, because one day I just saw my Firefox layout beeing different. So it should have "auto-update" on. I have also attached images as examples.

Anyone else have these problems, is there any way to fix this or should I downgrade my Firefox version? Also my OS Windows 10 is up to the newest version.

If downgrading is the only fix, does it keep my "settings, passwords, profiles, bookmarks, etc"?

Thanks in Advance!

When I open a new tab and then search, and then try to search with google then search option does not provide me results. or if I try to even open google through the tab, Firefox does not provide me any results. This started happening recently. I have tried clearing the cache and cookies and the issue resolves for a bit and then starts again. I even have removed and tried a fresh install of firefox and I am still seeing the same results. I need help as this is getting annoying.

I have the latest version of Firefox & my windows 10 update automatically. After the last Firefox update this week I will be browsing a webpage and all of a sudden a Bing page is loaded over the top with a preformatted search term as though I was searching for that term. It's really annoying as I've always preferred Google anyway. When I search for something in the address bar, it loads a Bing page, but when I open a new tab it loads my preferred page, Google with Firefox. I don't have Bing selected as a search engine in my options. How can I get rid of it please?

Firefox causing double audio. Cancelling it allows one audio to continue, but stops the video part. Seems to only happen on Fox news since update. I can't figure out how to get an answer on this, or from this, unless it is to switch browsers. Too bad, I've run Firefox for a decade and liked it.

Before the update, my bookmarks toolbox was permanently open on the left side of the screen. That was a perfect setup for me, as I use a lot of bookmarklets for time saving on sites I'm on frequently. Since the update, all I have at the top of the screen is Import bookmarks and Most Visited (top left) and Other Bookmarks (top right). I can open Other Bookmarks, and my bookmarklets are there, but clicking one closes the Other Bookmarks folder each and every time. This renders them useless for my purpose. Is there a way to reopen, and KEEP open, my toolbox? I've tried clicking the Keep Open option and selecting done, but that doesn't do what I'm wanting it to do.

https://bannergress.com/banner/self-similar-across-scale-24c4 The box in the upper left should be scrolling to display the whole picture. The problem is with every page of this site; I selected this particular page as an example.

scrolls on this computer: desktop Windows 10 Pro v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1

doesn't scroll on this computer: laptop Windows 10 Home v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1


What I've tried on the laptop so far (none of these solved the problem):

tried in a private browsing window

tried in Troubleshoot Mode

uninstalled Firefox deleted default profile folder (that was the only profile) deleted profiles.ini reinstalled Firefox
