After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

Trying to open Firefox in Windows 10 is suddenly only showing a completely white screen (no title bar, closing X, etc) and can only be closed by right clicking on the start bar icon and selecting "Close Program"

Have tried everything to fix the problem so decided that I would have to use the Control Panel and completely remove/uninstall the program and then re-download and install new (was able to save the bookmarks in html format from the "c" drive.

When selecting the Uninstall option in the Control Panel, rather than uninstalling as with any other program, a dialogue box appears offering to repair/reinstall the program, but on clicking the accept option another dialogue box appears stating that Firefox must be closed first --- but it is closed and also proved to be closed through the Task Manager section.

The Firefox version is 100.0.2

How can I completely uninstall Firefox when no option will allow this to happen. I have even tried via the "CMD" command.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated as I have been working on t his problem for three days without any success.

A couple users at our site intermittently receive a SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT error when navigating to Google in Firefox. This happens in Version 99.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 computers. When the issue occurs, users can navigate to other websites without issues. Navigating to Google in a different browser works no problem. Restarting the browser will resolve the issue. Clearing cookies and site data has no effect. Users can also refresh the page after some time and the issue will go away.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

When I start to type a reply to a Facebook post, the page scrolls down so that the line I am typing disappears one line below the bottom of the screen. I have to scroll down to see what I'm typing. Also, it jumps down the same way whenever I hit the backspace key to edit what I'm typing.

I discovered a previous (archived) post on this forum that suggested using "about.config" and making sure that the value setting for browser.backspace_action is equal to 2. But that didn't change the annoying behavior. Is there any other value I should try? It's not clear what the number means.

Nor did setting browser.backspace to true (or to false) seem to help with the unwanted jumping upon use of the backspace key.

This only seems to happen with Facebook, but it's quite annoying.

I've posted this problem before and did receive replies attempting to help. Unfortunately, the problem has continued for a long time (I think at least a year). I frequently can't access websites (e.g. Yahoo Mail) using Firefox but can using Edge or Brave. With Firefox, I get the following error message:

"Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to login.yahoo.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I had hoped that the problem would be solved by a Firefox update but that has not happened.

I also regularly get the message "No Internet Connection" while using Firefox but, when I use Edge or Brave while the error message is displayed, there is Internet connection.

I'm using the latest versions of Firefox and Windows 10 Pro.

I've used Firefox for many years and really don't want to have to switch to, say, Brave.

Many file types are no longer listed under Settings > Applications>Content Type at about:preferences#general. I used to be able to click on a file in an email like a Word or Excel document, and it would come up on my screen. Now Firefox asks me to Save them. I don't want to automatically save files without first looking at them. How can I get those file types in the Application list again?

I have attached a pic of the file types I have left to chose from. There used to be a lot more. How can I get back all the missing choices I have had there for years?

The latest update has made it so Firefox opens the download panel every time I download something, a very obnoxious behavior when downloading a lot of files, and I can't find a way to stop that from happening.

[came across another question that brings up the same issue], but that one focuses more on a site presumably changing about:config rather than the issue of the download panel itself.

I have noticed recently that every week or so my Firefox browser will randomly change my homepage directory to the landing page / search for MSN, which is baffling, since it is obtrusive and anti-Mozilla to me.

If y'all are sneaking it in for that sweet ad revenue, I understand, but I would donate to avoid this issue.

Otherwise Firefox / Thunderbird are awesome, and I appreciate all that you do!

Hi I use my Firefox account on my personal computer and on my own computer on a server at work. Since my Firefox was updated to most recent version, I have not been able to save any passwords on Firefox on my server site. I tried adding a primary password using Firefox while on the local station, but it is not functional. Every time I open any new page to where I have an account, I have to reenter my Primary password before signing in to the site. I have since disabled this feature as it is not working for me. Firefox seems to be working fine on the local station at work and on my personal computer at home.

My Computer service tech for the server is unable to resolve this. I have also consulted a computer tech in the community who has not been able to solve it. We have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice. We have gone through a multitude of settings on the Firefox site. I am able to save the passwords without issue if I use Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.

I am looking for someone who can give me guidance on what settings I many need to change. I simply want to be able to enter my user name and password for the common sites that I use, ask Firefox to store them so I do not have to retype them every time.

Thank you, Shelley B

Before I updated to FF 103.0.1, links I clicked on in e-mails in Outlook would open in an FF window using my existing default profile. Since updating to FF 103.0.1, these links open in an FF window with a virgin profile. If no such window was already open (from clicking on another e-mail link) this will be a new FF window, even if FF was already open with my normal profile. As a result, e-mail links to PDFs open the files directly in FF (instead of asking me where to download them to, as I have configured in my profile) and I am missing my stored passwords when the links lead to websites that require login.

This is a real PITA! Is there anything I can do other than revert to an earlier FF version? Please help!

I am running Windows 10 2021H2.
