I've downloaded a couple of add-ons this week that did not do what they claim to do, so I wanted to leave reviews so other users won't waste their time. Except when i got to do so, i am surprised to see that therte is no clear way to write a review for an add-on. I am logged into the add-ons page, i can view the previous reviews for the add-on, but nowhere does it inticate how I can leave a review. Google led me to the Mozilla add-ons wiki which states "You can complete most of the review using the reviewer tools at addons.mozilla.org" except there is no indication to where one can locate these "reviewer tools." Seems a bit funny to me that Mozilla would choose to hide the functionality and make it so difficult to use.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi, after the update to Firefox 103, everything is too big in my Firefox. Looking at the release notes, I realize that this is because Firefox is now responding differently to the "make everything bigger" setting in Windows. I typically have this set to 150 to get everything in Windows set to the appropriate sizes. This was fine with the old Firefox behavior, but now everything in Firefox is too large. Can I revert Firefox to the old font scaling behavior?

 add-on, setting adjustment, or about config switch?

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!

Cheers, Elliot

I currently have 11 instances of FF running.

I've tried to set the instances to one in the preferences menu. When I go to performance and uncheck "use reccomended performance setting", there is no option to set the number to 1. I have also set browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false in config, which was another recommendation.

I've read that this is supposed to be normal. 11 running processes in the background is not normal in my book and obvioulsy unneccessary because you can manually turn all but one off with no penalty, except for the users time and patience of course. Please let me know how to fix this issue. Those people who want the "advantage" of multiple processes should be allowed to have it and those that don't ought to have that option as well.

I have been a fan and user of FF almost since the begining, but if this is something that can't be fixed, I will try my luck somewhere else.

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?

Currently the fonts at the top of the page (tab headers, address bar, search bar, booksmarks) are all set to a larger font. I don't know how they got changed but they are too big now. If I try change font size and style in settings nothing happens. It is not how it looked on first install and using another browser has font sizes of a more practical size. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firebox and also doing a refresh and it doesn't change anything.

Its almost like a bug that has made Firefox set these fonts larger than they should and not able to modifying them again.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to fix this and its very off putting to the point, short of a full OS reinstall I'll have to start using another browser.

Without my doing anything, firefox has decided to download pdf files in its own html. I have changed the default to adobe rather than ask. When I open the downloaded file in adobe it comes down as an adobe file, I tell it to save as an adobe pdf, but it appears in file manager and then opens in firefox html. Worse, it, whatever it is, has gone into file manager and changed adobe pdf files, some of which have been sitting on my hard drive for some years, into firefox html files. How do I rectify this please?

"Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?
