I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

I'm using Firefox 76 packaged with fedora 30 but it wont display a video (weirdly youtube does work). I'm getting the message: "this content requires adobe flash or HTML5 video support..." I don't want to install flash because I've seen some content somewhere about security concerns. I looked for an extension or add-on but none of them seem to be Mozilla approved and most of them don't seem to address this issue anyway. I can't find a setting to fix this in Firefox. I've seen an archived thread about this problem suggesting maybe some linux library issue, but it contained no solution. Maybe I'm missing something fundamental but it's 2021 now and I'd like my Firefox to support a bit of video here and there other than youtube. Has anyone got a solution?

Problem with printing at reduced scale, did not notice it before a few days ago so could have been after a recent update. Am now using Firefox 90.0 for Linux Mint 19.3. Printing to US Letter size (which had been broken with "na_letter" being stuffed in to the config at one point, but I switched it back to "US Letter" and then it started working again a few months ago - Thank you).

I see some similar questions listed, so this may be simply adding information to something known:

Printing with "Fit to page fit" works fine, with correct preview. Print with scale set to 100% works fine, with correct preview.

Printing with scale set to less than 100% (say 70% or 80%) showed in the preview the page rescaled as expected. The actual printed output is also rescaled as expected, but the page size gets cropped at the right and bottom by what appears to be the same percentage, ending up with lost content. The bit that does print seems to match what is shown in the print preview perfectly, suggesting it would have been totally perfect if the print area had not been cropped along with reducing the text and image sizes.

I tried the "Print using the system dialogue" option, and the printed result had the same pathology.

Same problem also happens when I print to PDF. For this I tried doing the same thing twice, both scaled at 70%, and on comparing found that the preview in firefox had also become cropped a bit but not to the same extent. I did not notice any cropping for the first print to PDF, but now seem unable to get back to what I saw originally in the preview, with correct resizing and no cropping. Playing around some more with printing at 100% vs 70% vs 80% to "fit to page width", I seem to be getting changing crops happening each time in the preview for the reduced sizes.

But the preview and print are both still correct for 100% scaling and for "fit to page width".

Sample web page I used here was https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a-shoulder-workout-for-better-posture?utm_source=pocket-newtab The screen shot shows the preview after the first reduced print to PDF, with no settings changed. The little bit of side cropping seen in the preview did not happen when I did the first print to PDF.

I have encountered one web site that has several pages that display as graphics instead of text. I have visited this site before several months ago and the display was accurate then. The first image is how it looks now. The second image is how it looked several months ago. I am running Ubuntu 20.04.2 and Firefox 89.0.2. It's very strange that this is the only page that displays this way. I checked the page in Chromium and it displays correctly in that browser. Is this Firefox or quirky html?

The prompt "Please enter your primary password" has started to appear multiple times in a session. When I enter the password everything seems to work the way it did before, but after a while I'll click a link or access a bookmark and the prompt will pop up again.

Is this a deliberate change or a bug, or is my system broken or compromised?

Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.

Need help changing primary e-mail address on Mozilla support forum

I set about updating my e-mail address on this forum. I followed a hyperlink which had been e-mailed to me automatically in the past by the forum, and which pointed to support.mozilla.org

The first screen (whose URL I don't want to try to get right now because doing so might sign me out of my Support.Mozilla.org account) offered only an option for creating a new account, not signing into an existing account. It turns out that this is a very significant wording mistake that needs to be corrected.

Since I thought my existing account didn't exist anymore, I made a new account with my new e-mail address.

Then I found that the short username assigned to my new account had a "1" suffixed - which meant that my existing account did exist after all. So I deleted the new account. I also managed to sign into my existing account by using the misleadingly named "Create a new account" method.

The next problem was how to change my primary e-mail address. There is no evident way to do this. I eventually found article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts which confirmed my suspicion that the recommended workaround is to add the new address as a "secondary address," then delete the primary address. This is another significant issue that needs to be corrected. I'm registered on possibly dozens of Web forums etc. & all of them (except Mozilla) simply let me change my e-mail address when I need to.

Anyway, now apparently the support forum doesn't let me add my current e-mail address as a secondary e-mail address, because there is still a record of this address on the defunct account that I just now created. Also, the error message here is worded incorrectly (it claims that my new e-mail address is the same as my old e-mail address).

Can I please have assistance from a forum admin in getting my e-mail address updated, without change to my short username.

I also wish there were a more obvious way to ask for help (or raise defect reports) regarding the forum itself.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I noticed that when I open a specific site, the tabs bar becomes huge, and when I close it, the bar goes back to its normal height. For example, it happens when I go to this page: Problematic Site

I have no idea why it happens. I remember that it did happen before, but I only noticed now that it has something to do with having some specific pages loaded. So I know it has happened because of some other sites, but I don't remember which ones.

Even if I change the tab, the tab bar stays big, as long as the problematic page is loaded (even on the background).

This also happens in safe mode, so it's not because of my extensions, I imagine. Also happening on another laptop here.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Thanks,

I just upgraded from FF 89 to FF 90 (on Ubuntu) and the drop down menus (accessed on right-click) are now transparent. I have changed the theme, changed my desktop theme, started FF in troubleshoot mode, disabled acceceration in about:config, and it makes no difference, the menus are still transparent. This makes it difficult to use the browser.

Is this fixable or is it a bug in the latest release?

Hello.

I got a little problem with firefox starting with somewhat broken window layout on my Ubuntu 20.04 desktop with KDE desktop environment. Tried to google for it unsuccessfully, so here I am. Whenever I start firefox after cold boot or a full reboot, it runs like on a screenshot. The workaround for fixing that is to resize window and then make it maximized again. I am not quite sure, is it a problem of browser, video driver, or desktop environment, but it occurs for me only on firefox.

  • Appeared several versions ago, present on current version I use: 89.0.2 (64-bit)
  • Does not appear when i load windows 10 on this PC.
  • Video card: Nvidia 1660S driver ver.460

Does anyone heard of that problem? Would be glad to know any details to address this problem.

I have searched and tried every change / setting I can find to disable the automatic updates of Firefox. I am using Firefox because I use to have control over the browser and it was tracking / spying on everything I do like Chrome. Having Firefox automatically update without my permission I see as no different then a virus and spy ware. I am in the middle doing some work and have to stop and loos everything I am doing because you pushed an unneeded unwanted update. This is not acceptable! I do not need some company that thinks they know what I should have on my computer. That is why I don't use Windows. I don't need some corporate suite telling me what is best for my computer.

How do I turn off automatic updates and all / any nag messages.
