I just installed a fresh copy of Windows 11 and last Firefox, and get some weird rendering of letters on some websites. It seems that the end of a letter is bolded so to speak (screenshot attached). Also, there is an unnatural widening between the lines of text on the same websites (screenshot attached). This does not appear on other browsers. What can I do to correct it?

Summary Reset a site or domain to be no longer associated with a Container

I accidentally assigned my search-engine domain to a container. As a result every single search I perform from the URL bar asks if I'd like to open it in the assigned container instead. I'll select 'Remember my decision, open in current tab' (the current tab being the base no-container Firefox user). Unfortunately this does nothing.

I've searched through the settings and options and I've found no option to get an overview of the domain configurations or to reset a certain site. I've read suggestions online to delete the container, but this isn't an acceptable approach to the problem.

I've been getting funny glyphs on my google engine searches. See png. Turning off add ons and reinstalling software doesn't seem to clear the issue.

The funny text when copied and pasted is revealed to be the actual text it was supposed to be.

This is very very weird... and its only on firefox, no issue for chrome or safari. Happened just a few days ago. Don't remember installing anything. Could be malfare from a font site?

The option to restore tabs and windows is no longer working for me. I normally have a dozen tabs I work thru every day. Yesterday when I shutdown Firefox, all those tabs were there. Today when I open Firefox it only had to single Firefox default homepage. Checking under History there is no option to restore previous tabs, and the recently closed tabs was empty.

To test, I opened an IMDB page and pinned it. I then went to Wikipedia. This gave me a pinned and unpinned tab. I shutdown Firefox via the "X" to close the window. When I restarted Firefox there was only the default homepage. Neither IMDB nor Wikipedia showed up under recently closed tabs and no option to restore the previous session was available.

I have operated Firefox this way for several years. I don't know why this behavior is no longer being supported.

In the past the caret in text entry fields used to blink/pulsate/flash forever in both Firefox and Thunderbird. (Text entry boxes, such as the browser URL-bar, the e-mail To/Subject/Content textboxes, online forms, etc.). Now in the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox 110.0.1 and Thunderbird 102.8.0 the caret stops blinking after just a few seconds. This is very confusing and frustrating for my grandmother and she already called me several times because Firefox and Thunderbird 'stopped working'. I explained to her that this is a new feature but she does not understand and keeps forgetting it after a few days. She is used to the cared blinking continuously, it has been blinking for the past decades whenever she wanted to type something in the computer and it only stopped blinking when the computer program froze or crashed.

I am sure that my grandma is not the only person having issues with the caret not flashing, I for one also would like to have a caret that blinks forever, so when I look away from the screen and look back I do not have to search the text to find where I left my caret.

Please make it so that the default caret appearance and behavior is the same as in all other programs (i.e. blinking forever), as it used to be in the past, just like what everyone is used to. I argue that the majority of users is used to and also expects a blinking caret when they are writing an e-mail or search online and you are confusing a whole lot of people with this minor change, people who do not know how to report bugs or seek help themselves. It's a sign of poor user-friendliness if grandmas need to call their grandchildren or children for help just to write e-mails which they used to be able to do on their own for many years in the past.

I hereby suggest adding an accessibility option for people who wish to disable the blinking cursor and to change the default behavior back to 'caret flashing forever'.

My FF is set up to: - Always ask you where to save files - Open PDF in Firefox

On normal PDF links, FF opens the PDF normally without downloading (or after downloading it silently in a temporary location invisible to me). On "Force Download" links, FF downloads the PDF to the Download folder without asking where to save it. This is for example the case when clicking "Download" on a file in Gmail. If I click "Download" in Gmail on another file type that I have not set to "Open in Firefox", FF does ask me where to save it.

My expectation would be that, if the file cannot be opened in the browser, then FF would revert to the user's chosen behavior of "Always ask you where to save files".

When I do a Google search on a calculation, such as "1+1" or even "sin(pi/3)/e^(-1.125)", Google returns a calculator with the answer. This is REALLY helpful. I've confirmed this behavior on Chrome and Edge on Windows 11.

However, Firefox does not seem to display the returned calculator.

I've attached 3 screenshots, each showing the calculator (Chrome and Edge) and the lack of a calculator (Firefox).

Why is Firefox not displaying the search's calculator and result?

I've tried resolving this issue after looking at various solutions here on this site as well as other sites. The message "Your browser is being managed by your organization" shows in my settings, However, when I go to the Policies thread in the registry - whether it's under Local Machine or Local User - there is no policy registry entry for Firefox or Mozilla.

Please advise. This is really annoying.

Thanks in advance.

I am using DuckDuckGo with Firefox because I do not like auto suggestions filling up the search bar while I type. It's so annoying. I have ensured that Settings do not have auto complete in any way, but still they come. The only solution I can find on this website, which is Stop Auto Search in Firefox

There is a preference to change that back, but it does take a bit of work to find it because of the unusual name: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box in the page, type or paste handoff and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar preference to switch the value from true to false Success?

I had no success with it at all. Please, how can I stop this wretched feature? Thanks.
