I've been trying to figure out how to fix this and havent found anything in my google seartch settings, or firefox options or my PC's display settings, it might be right in front of me but I just cant figure it out.

On some pages, for example, when I do a google search on firefox, there is a ton of blank white space not used. Like it has a narrow page margin or something? I'm attaching a screenshot of what I mean. You can see half the screen is just white, how can I fix it so the display isnt so narrow? Not all pages have the blank space problem, for example outlook.com has no such issue.

Thank you in advance for helping me

Since a recent Firefox update, Firefox has alpha-sorted my bookmarks automatically and I cannot turn this new feature off - this is annoying!

I want to custom organise the order of my bookmarks - NOT by alpha-sorting.

The 'sort by name' menu option does not have a counter option - ie 'DO NOT sort bookmarks'

So how do I turn off book mark sorting ???

Strangest quirk happened recently. When I scroll down a Fox News article to the reader's comments, half of the comments are embedded with question marks etc. that make them unreadable. Not the end of the world but a little bothersome. When I use Microsoft Edge or Explorer this problem does not occur so it must be the Firefox browser. I am running the most recent #83 Firefox browser. Thanks for any help.

I am suddenly unable to log in to any websites requiring passwords etc. When I try and enter user names/email addresses/passwords or pin numbers in the required boxes typing produces no response in the boxes. This happens over multiple websites.

I have tried the Firefox help advice re cookies, profile files etc. and also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Have also run full Norton security scans and power eraser with no issues detected. None of these have helped and the issue continues.

Would be grateful to know if anyone else has had similar issues and/or for any other suggestions to fix this.

Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

Whenever I click on Print Edit WE button the edit page opens but all the buttons are inactive and the PE button in the toolbar shows SUS for suspend. Nothing I do fixes it. I've removed and reinstalled the lastest version of PE from the add-on web page 3 or 4 times. A right click on the PE button drops down a menu but the one I need, Edit, puts PE into suspend mode. What could be causing this? I'm running FF 83.0, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro. Print Edit has always worked before. Does the latest version have a bug? Or does FF maybe have a bug?

Hello,

I have been writing a .bat file, as well as experimenting with ShellBags in order to default Windows Explorer navigation pane settings and folder views / types to default.

Currently, I have the .bat file configured to remove the NavPane (HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\NavPane) and Sizer (HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\Sizer) registry folders / items (As these are automatically regenerated with default values by Windows), as well as myriad ShellBag items and Desktop.ini files. It then restarts Windows Explorer.

This .bat script, however, does not seem to default any customization made within Firefox's Save As window(s).

For example, if I right-click an image, then select Save Image As, and then proceed to drag the explorer panes to be excessively wide, then exit Firefox, upon running the .bat file, the excessively wide navigation / explorer panes remain excessively wide. They do not default.

Does Firefox store this pane customization information somewhere else? Can this be defaulted?

Thank you!

I didn't mind this bug in about a week ago, but it is sufficiently annoying enough. The firefox is deleting last letter consists of my locale, hangul, when I search it through address bar.

It occurs when searching more than 2 words. Precisely, conditions are two. 1. one or more space bar between two words. 2. the last word has more than one letter.

ex) ㄱ ㄴㄷ(enter) --(when searching through address bar)--> ㄱ ㄴ

It is resolved by adding space bar or move the cursor to the right of the letter. So you can't reproduce it with just copying that words. You need to search with korean locale keyboard to reproduce that bug. Anyway, it's still annoying doing things what I should not do with the previous version.

I'm at my wits end. I've tried every fix I could find and Firefox is dramatically slower then Edge or Chrome. This happens with loading sites, like Amazon. Also, it often locks up/stops when typing (like right now) and it takes about 15 seconds for it to repond again.

First, I doubt it's a hardware or network issue, since it's happened on both my old archaic PC and now on my new PC (i9 CPU, Nvidia 2070 graphics card, 64gb RAM).

Here's some highlights of what I've tried so far: • Refreshing multiple times • Rebooting the PC • Doing all the Quick Tips on this website • Eliminating all extensions • Clearing all cookies and cash • ...

Also, I don't get any error codes. The tab icon just spins for a long time.

I'm hoping I'm missing something obvious, since I love Firefox.

Thanks and any help!

Hi there, first time posting. I have Firefox 82.0.3 64-bit and I am on Windows 10. The only add-ons I have are Ublock Origin and Adblocker.

This morning I was having some internet trouble and it turns out my ISP needs to send someone out to my house to fix it. While my internet was going in and out, Firefox seemed very sensitive to this because it would continue to crash.

I was wondering if your internet connection going in and out can cause Firefox to crash (I need to the end the process because it is unresponsive type of crashing). I don't usually have any problems with Firefox and just wanted to ask.

Thanks.

I can still access and play YouTube videos but I can't sign in - which I need to do to see the videos I've subscribed to and notifications of when new videos are released. When I attempt to sign in, a screen comes up with what looks like stacked TV screens (see attached image) and "Oops! Something went wrong." That's all I get. I've checked to see if it's an issue with my virus software (Quick Heal) and they advise me it's a browser issue. I've made sure I have the latest version of the browser and I've cleared all history and cookies. Any ideas how to fix this? Thank you. (Please use plain English, I don't speak Computer!)
