YOUTUBE: No Home Page & No Initial Comments Section via FireFox: In YouTube via FireFox the YouTube Home Page and Comment Entry on videos is missing. Why is this? Ever since the dawn of FireFox this has always been missing. Please go use Chrome, Chromium, and Brave. You will see when you select a certain YouTube Channel, you will get a Home Page. You do not get this in FireFox. The second issue that has always been is the fact that you cannot comment on videos because the Comment Entry is missing via FireFox.

FireFox needs to correct this problematic issue. I am using Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia. I have also used Windows 10 and the same problem exist there. I want the FireFox Team to use Linux Mint to see what you get from the FireFox Browser in the Software Manager. Question; is this the same Browser that is currently available via the website? If not, then we have a huge problem with the Linux Team and Linux period that needs to be resolved. Both the FireFox Team & the Linux Team needs to work together to get this fixed.

I would provide Screenshots but I want people to actually go and see for themselves. Go get Linux Mint and install FireFox via the Software Manager. Go to YouTube to see what I am talking about.

I have a high DPI monitor, and I've set the Windows UI scaling factor to 125%. However, at 125% the web pages appears a bit too zoomed in (images and fonts too large) for me, so I set the default zoom level to 80% in the settings page. But apparently add-on popups (e.g. uBlock origin) doesn't use the default zoom level so they are comically large compared to web pages. I tried setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1, but then Firefox UI became too small. I wonder if I can set the zoom level for add-on popups to 80% without changing the size of the browser UI?

Please, I would like to know why my web page is not only visible in firefox in other browsers if it does. Something I have seen is that the code is present but is not displayed. My page is www.sividev.com and I only see an error in the console that does not appear in other browsers Uncaught TypeError: this.scrollPosMouse is not a function

   init https://www.sividev.com/wp-content/themes/salient/js/init.js?ver=12.1.0:137
   <anonymous> https://www.sividev.com/wp-content/themes/salient/js/init.js?ver=12.1.0:17596
   jQuery 8.

This page uses the non-standard "zoom" property. Consider using calc () in the relevant property values, or using "transform" together with "transform-origin: 0 0".

When I start firefox, it boots up, but won't display any content. I just get a white screen. I've noticed when mousing around that everything works - hovering over where the search bar should be changes my cursor, clicking a the top right corner closes firefox, hitting ctrl+T opens a new tab, etc. Starting in safe mode does nothing, I've uninstalled and reinstalled after deleting all system folders, restarted my machine, even searched 'mozilla' in my file explorer and deleted everything that popped up. I'm at my wits end trying to fix this, any help would be necessary. I'm on the latest version of firefox. I've attached some screenshots of what it looks like. (polar bear in a snowstorm)

This is a 2019 bump to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1221476 .

Firefox renders text incorrectly. It uses DirectWrite, which is incorrect, it should use GDI to render text. In all the next updates please immediately rewrite the Microsoft Windows renderer sourcecode to render all text with GDI.

I have a (temporary?) visual impairment and need large fonts. If I increase the font size beyond 24dpi, it breaks the layout of most pages. Zoom doesn't affect page layout, but I have to hit the key a bunch of times for every new tab.

Is there a way to save your zoom level?

Before someone points to zoom.minPercent and zoom.maxPercent, (contrary to several articles on the web) they do not save your zoom level. I still don't understand what browser.zoom.siteSpecific does, but it doesn't help either.

TIA, Dan

I have dual monitors. I've used Firefox for years without issue. Yesterday, it crashed. When it re-opened, it opens on my left (primary) monitor where it always previously opened on my right (secondary) monitor. I use a third party monitor software - Ultramon. All other browsers and windows still have the option to move them between monitors when I right click on their top ribbon bar. That option no longer appears for Firefox and it refuses to stay on my right monitor when I manually move it. I've tried the troubleshooting suggestions including uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox with no success. Any ideas?

See the first uploaded image to see how Google Chrome presents https://maps.google.com/localguides.

See the second uploaded image for how Firefox shows the webpage, even when it's running in safe mode (all add-ons disabled). What's going on?

I also have Firefox Developer version installed on my Linux, and it doesn't have this problem. This problem is not just on this webpage but others as well.

FF 66 running on Fedora 29 KDE spin.

See the attached sceen shot. When I first open FF in maximized mode, the screen tears in the middle. Also, it displays a part of the screen that completely does not belong to Firefox (in the attached example, it is from the Thunderbird screen which is now background). The minimize/maximize/close buttons shown belong to Firefox, not Thunderbird.

If I resize FF using the buttons, then maximize again, it displays correctly.

Weird, huh? JimR

On some, not all, web sites, form fields are black with dark grey type. They are virtually invisible.

I am using Mint 19 with a Dark Theme and was using Google Chrome until recently. I've never seen this issue before.

I am mostly happy since returning to Firefox, but this problem is one that I must solve.

Thanks to all in advance!

Hi, I have a problem with checkboxes and radiobuttons in firefox.

It renders a checkbox in grid-like pattern when the checkbox is styled with width and height attributes. It can be best seen in the provided image together with inspect-element for that checkbox. The relevant site is https://www.w3schools.com/w3css/w3css_input.asp. But it can be done for any checkbox.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and I've updated to Firefox v65 but the problem persists. In Chrome it gets rendered correctly.

Please advise on how to fix this behavior.

For some reason, when I started my computer this morning the tabs were all bright blue. When I click on another window and change focus, it reverts to the light gray that it should be, however going back resumes the problem. Starting in safe mode does not help, and turning off hardware acceleration does not help. I have restarted both the browser and my computer, and the problem resumes. The only thing that seems to change it, is when I change it to certain themes like space, who completely change the color of it. The default, dark, and light themes all are affected by this bright blue tab bar.

Hi,

I have been seeing few dashes/hyphen like colored lines moving on the top of my web browser screen randomly in order only on the top border of the browser. Was wondering if this happens generally for FIREFOX QUANTAM users on Mac. I have been seeing this only on this browser. I have also attached the area/region where it occurs for reference. However, whenever I try to take a Mac Screenshot with the particular dashes it suddenly disappears.

I hope someone knows about this. Looking forward to some help.

I have some web pages that embed a PDF document. This worked fine in all major browsers until a couple weeks ago (late December 2018 / early January 2019). It still works fine in IE, Chrome and Edge but not Firefox. It's like Firefox is completely ignoring the <object> tag. I verified I have the latest version of Firefox. I'm on a Windows 10 machine.

I created a small/simple web page to display the issue (it's only 15 lines of html code):

http://missilecommand.org/control_panels/test.html

I tried installing the Firefox add-on for PDF, but that did not help.

Can anyone please help me get this working in Firefox? Thanks,
