Hello :)

I'm using Firefox 107.0 on macOS 12.6.1 and I'm having weird issues with the displayed font. It appears on the startup screen of Firefox and on websites (see screenshots attached).

The garbled font is called ".SF NS".

I've tried turning the option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" on and off without success.

I have also tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration - also without luck.

The issue does **not** appear in safe mode. Unfortunately resetting the theme and disabling all extensions hasn't helped either :(

I have also downloaded and installed a font called "SFNS Display" but the issue persists.

Uninstalling Firefox (with AppCleaner) and reinstalling hasn't fixed the problem.

I don't know what else to try. Can someone help me please? :)

I use to have Firefox setup to always show twitch channels in English speaking only, but I recently reset Firefox and now I cannot seem to find out how to get the twitch channels to only show English speaking people. This was not a twitch thing, as I only changed Firefox. the word English always showed up right under the picture of a group of channels. as the picture shows I now have all the different languages in the same window and I have to type the word English in every time I run the browser which is multiple times a day.

This is not the setting (See 2nd picture of that area) that you see in settings for Firefox, as I have tried that and it does not change it.

How do I set this up again? I cannot find the setting for this anywhere on Firefox or Twitch.

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

Dear team I'm trying to use firefox to connect OWA on an Exchange server where Extended Protection (EP) is configured. OWA website is configured to use basic and windows authentication. When EP is off, it works fine, meaning it connects automatically. When EP is set to require, then I get a credential prompt, that loops prompting me for the credentials Strange thing is if the 1st time I get prompted I press Escape key, and at the 2nd prompt I enter my credentials, then I connect the webmail.

These settings were configured in the about:config with the webmail URL "network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris" "network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris" "network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris" and this one "signon.autologin.proxy" has been set to true

If I use Chrome or Edge, I do not face this issue I found this website https://www.synacktiv.com/en/publications/dissecting-ntlm-epa-with-love-building-a-mitm-proxy.html which seems to explain the issue I'm facing but it talks about Firefox v93.

Anyone knows how to fix this issue?

For the last two days websites I use all the time, like my gmail and my aol mail have a red line through the lock icon in the URL. I was able somehow to fix yesterday, not today. SURELY Google itself is not an unauthenticated site. OR gmail. And for EVERY site to be a problem is ludicrous. To expect users to know who the website owners are for contacting is also ludicrous. This actually seems to be a probelm with FIREFOX itself. So, I will begin the transfer of my stuff to another browser and stop using Firefox entirely. I have been a user for probably 20 years, and always defended it against techies telling me to use something else. Turns out they knew what they were talking about. So fed up right now...

Goodbye, Firefox.

I'm on macOS's Firefox Developer Edition 108.0b3 right now (arm64/M1 CPU). Though my current version is a bit outdated, this problem appeared several months ago and still bothers me to this day.

When I, or any another application, opens a new link in Firefox, the browser _doesn't initiate the request_. So the address bar changes, new tab opens, but absolutely nothing happens afterwards, I'm just getting blank page. In order to get site opened, I have to click the address bar and press enter. Rarely, even that does not help and I have to press enter one more time again. The same applies to the basic links too - on this support website I practically had to click every link twice to get it opened. The click even is clearly registered: I see the :active state for a second. But afterwards, nothing happens, just like event got canceled in browser (clearly not JS error since it not only happens with links). It doesn't matter which site I'm using, where I am (even start page has this bug), and don't really seem to be connected to the extensions I'm using (recently I had high RAM usage by extension, and being unable to determine which extension uses RAM I disabled most of the untrusted extensions, which do not have cup icon given by Mozilla or not very popular), so I practically use _mostly_ clean Firefox now.

Before going full reset, I wonder if anyone happen to have the same issue?

So, I am a Linux user who is used to shell commands like mv or cp. One of their feature is absence of prompts like "Are you sure what you want to replace foo.txt?". Because I have somewhat organized fs, I always know what that file is for and if I can overwrite it.


Now I have to download some files, what I need only for uploading onto another website / reading them once. So, I just download them into my /tmp folder and save them under the same name (so I could just repeat cat command and reduce clutter). But each time I download a file Firefox asks for confirmation to replace my existing file. Are there any config flags to disable those annoying prompts?

From time to time when maximising the Firefox window, the top 20-80 pixels or so are replaced with a white bar.

It is usually possible to grab the window by clicking somewhere next to the address field, and thereby move the window downwards, alt double clicking there which set the window to "not full screen".


Right-click in any of the "white" areas - which is located inside the FF window - opens the Windows desktop menu.

screenshot 1 - "not full screen" (all is fine) screenshot 2 - FF in full screen mode (title bar vanished - replaced by white space) screenshot 6 - right-click in white space opens Windows desktop menu

Found a few reports that seem similar but not identical to this one. Rebooting the computer usually helps but after a while the problem returns. It is a rather old machine, and quite possible that this is not caused by FF, however, only FF suffers from this behaviour - any other application works "normally" (i.e. you see the title bar and buttons when the window is maximised).

Hello there!

I am a web developer and recently we built a website using wordpress. Specifically in this page https://jaotc.eu/jatc-participants/jatc-participants-jatc2/ there is an issue with the participants not showing/loading. I exclusively use Firefox for development and had no issues so far but this problem only exists in Firefox. I tried edge and chrome and the page works fine.

Maybe it has to do with some kind of compatibility with the wordpress theme or wordpress itself. If you would like to check it out and see if there is a general fix that has to be applied.

Thank you in advance!

Remember search and form history. This setting always resets to false after the latest two FireFox updates and I need to enable it again.

After logging out and back in the setting is disabled again. I've removed all plugins and extensions I've added and the issue persists.

I've tried Places Database : Verify Integrity but the issue persists on very Restart or loggin. In the past I've even removed FireFox with a 3rd party uninstaller to remove all remnants of FF but, as a very long term user of FF (right from the early Win XP days), this issue pops up from time to time and it's really starting to become extremely annoying.

Apart from Refreshing FF or the total nuke and reinstall option, what else can be done to stop this issue?

Thanks.

Hi,

 I've just spent an annoyingly long time trying to do something that turned out to be really easy, it was just finding out what to do that made it seem hard.
 The issue of where search results open is completely ignored in the help pages, judging from the number of questions in Support on the issue, that appears to be something of an oversight. As does not displaying the date questions were posted, reading about what applies in an old verion of Ff may not do so in the current one, it didn't in my case.
 I wanted to know how to make the search results from Google on the search bar, open in a new tab, as opposed to the same tab, the current default setting. All it takes is changing the value of: browser.link.open_newwindow, from false to true in about:config.
 Simple to do, finding out that's what you have to do, isn't. 
 I thought I'd suggest that you might consider addressing this matter, I'm sure it would be welcomed by at least some users.
 Anyway, thank you for a great browser.
