Hi, I've been trying to transfer from Chrome to Firefox but have been experiencing a graphical error with primarily the toolbar in Google Docs. The places where icons should be denoting what each button does are empty - I do not have any extensions, plugins, or themes installed that would be causing this. I did install the Dark Reader extension to see if it would show icons when using it, which it did not. It actually is not exclusive to the toolbar, as drop-down menus that would normally have icons do not either. I tested in both Microsoft Edge and Chrome and this issue does not arise on either.

While Docs has been the primary issue, it persists across all Google Drive apps (Sheets, Slides, Drawings, and more). My version of Firefox is up to date and I am on an HP laptop running Windows 10. If anyone is able to help diagnose the issue at hand or direct me to another support thread where this issue has been resolved, it would be highly appreciated. Thank you so much!

I love Firefox and have been using it for years. I hate Google Chrome, but I'm forced to use it once or twice a year. When I use Firefox and go to one of Google's apps, a lot of the text overlaps. I lowered my minimum text to 30% and although it's almost unreadable, I can see that the text still overlaps. This is something I've been living with for a long time. Today I tried the same Google.com pages using Google Chrome and everything looks fine. Why can't Firefox fix the overlapping text? If Google can do it, Firefox should be able to do it after all these years. The available add-ons do not work. Bob Brown

My keyboard regularly locks up using Firefox. I tracked the problem down to having upwards of 40 Firefox processes running in Task Manager. Disabling them or restarting Firefox only works for a few hours before the problem recurs.

Several people here recommend disabling "Use recommended performance settings," which should give me the option of selecting the max number of processes to be running.

However, when I disable the recommended performance setting, the hardware acceleration option appears, but not the process number selection. I'm finding no way to set the max number of processes.

I'm hoping for a work-around to that, or a different solution.

Thanks.

BTW, I also notice excessive processes running when I use Chrome. I'm concerned why this is happening on both my browsers.

Win 10 - Firefox 109.0.1 On a website when I click on a TEL link in Firefox it offers me the option the link being opened in Firefox (which does not know what to do with it) or selecting an "other" application. Firefox can associate an app with a link type. How to do that is not the question. The question is: what app should I have firefox open for a "tel" link that will invoke magicJack and pass the TEL link data (the phone number) to it. Thanks, bill

I can not remove the extension!

I have noticed for some time now that I have an extension in my Firefox extensions that has no name and keeps installing itself, even when I try to uninstall it through the Firefox folder. The extension causes that in my search suggestions when I enter something always other websites come to the surface, or the actually suggested by firefox sites slide down. Some yahoo and amazon sites come up on my search results.

I opened firefox today and after an update found an unwanted item on my toolbar - a little puzzle piece icon that brings up a menu of extensions. I have no use for this button and I never will, and I do not want it on my toolbar, but for some reason the option to remove it has been greyed out and it cannot be moved or removed using toolbar customisation. Someone please tell me how I can remove this pointless item from my toolbar.

I am able to login to Windows whenever I restart my PCs, but Firefox doesn't accept the password. I have tried versions of the name that appears on my Windows screen after login, but that doesn't work. There is no alternative account on my laptop.

I use my regular gmail account in Firefox and Firefox is my default browser. Chrome pops up a login screen to allow me to sign into my school account or my regular account.

On Firefox when I go to google and click the login button, it takes me to my school login screen. How do I reset it to use my regular gmail account. My school uses gmail.

Can Firefox ask for the correct account when there are multiple accounts?
