Hello My desktop Firefox (iMac) did an automatic update and now I have the floaty tab redesign and I intensely dislike it. Is there a way to make the tabs look like how they did before? I am so unhappy. It's ugly and I can't tell the tabs apart very well (they have no dividing graphics). I am this close ---><--- to Time Machining myself back to the previous Firefox version. Help? Thanks Elizabeth

A link to my previous thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1339912

Recap: I was having what I believe were some kind of syncing issues, where none of my passwords would autofill, and I couldn't save new login information, and was getting logged out of websites that I would normally be perma-logged in to. At the same time, I have also been having connectivity issues where FF loses connection to my internet for around 5 minutes. Sometimes it would fix itself and other times I'd have to restart FF. Meanwhile, Chrome would run fine in the background so I know it's not my actual wifi but it's specific to FF.

I have tried the FF "refresh" and when that didn't fix it, I tried a full uninstall/reinstall which fixed my syncing/password autofill issues but not my connectivity issues.

Any other ideas? I'm super bummed about this because I've used FF for many years and been so happy with it and have convinced so many friends to jump ship from Chrome over to FF. But I don't have time to keep troubleshooting this and it's looking more and more like I'll have to switch over to Chrome if I want to have a normal workday without frustrations and interruptions.

I'm using the new version 89 of Firefox. Often, when I'm reading an article from a website, the screen suddenly zooms in, the letters become huge, and the page no longer fits on my computer screen. Am I doing something to cause this? It's really annoying and it has me wondering if I should abandon Firefox after all these years for something else.

Does anyone else have this experience? I've only noticed it with version 89?

Hi Folks, I am running firefox on my macpro 3,3GHz 12- Core Intel Xenon W Graphics AMD Radeo Pro 580x 8 GB, I am using an apple XDR display.

Every so often I experience a white flash, just within the Firefox window, not across the entire monitor.

I have tried a completely new and full install of Firefox but same problem.

I wonder is anyone had any thoughts or ideas  ?

Hi I recently started using 2FA on my account. Unfortunately i have forgotten the back up password so can't access my encrypted accounts.. I contacted Authy and they said; " the best approach is to contact each service you have a 2FA token for in Authy and ask them to disable 2FA on your account so that you may regain access. This is needed because Authy doesn't store your passwords on our servers as a security measure to protect your accounts. " So how do i disable in Firefox? I don't see an option in settings. Thank you

This is only a Firefox problem, and I am able to use my back button normally in other browsers.

When I click back on my mouse after I am done reading a page, rather than going back a page it just assumes that I want to autoscroll, and allows to me scroll up and down the page rather than go back. How can I fix this? Most current version of Firefox on macOS.

This also is affecting the forward button on the mouse as well, it also goes to autoscroll. Scroll wheel click functions as normal (autoscrolling).

What can I do?

Recently Firefox (both regular and dev edition) started showing monospace fonts in SF Mono Heavy variant. I use macOS 11.4 and Firefox Developer 90.0b6 but it happens with Firefox 89.0 as well, even in Troubleshooting Mode.

Below is a screenshot of a GitHub page. The same page rendered in Safari or Chrome on the same device show normal variant of SF Mono. Notice that the code on the page is rendered in heavy weight.

Running inspector mode shows that Firefox selects SF Mono Heavy even though regular variant is clearly present in the system.

I have tried disabling hardware acceleration and webgl. Are there any other ways to troubleshoot and fix the bug?

Hello,

I was wondering if there is any way to increase the font size of the tabs and the bookmarks bar in Firefox. I'm using macOS Catalina, and the text appears tiny, making it very difficult to read.

I have found the following suggested fixes, but neither provides a satisfactory solution:

Theme Font & Size Changer: appears to have lost most of its functionality in the newer versions of Firefox.

'Changing the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx value in about:config: this does indeed scale the size of the tab and bookmarks text, however, I'm using two screens, and the scaling does not match between the two. When the font appears big enough on my attached screen, weirdly the font on my laptop screen becomes even smaller than at the default -1 value. And if I increased it to the right size on my laptop screen, it become ginormous on my attached screen (see attached screen shots).

Any solution to save my poor eyes from straining would be appreciated,

Best wishes,

Veronika

Hello, After a Firefox browser Mac OS update (89.0) the "send to device" doesn't work anymore. It is not really that it does not work, the function is no longer available through the three points that were located in the toolbar. The three dots have disappeared from the browser.

On the contrary, in my Android Firefox (89.1.1 Build # 2015812947) the three points are still in place, and therefore I can access "Send to Device". The function was working yesterday. I was sending few Tabs from my Android to my Mac. But not today, the dots are there, the "Send to Device also, but is not working.

Also from Android to my PC is working, I can receive Tabs from my Firefox installed in my Android. I can't find the version. From PC well, the three dots also have disappeared from the browser.

Any help appreciate, thatks

Firefox 89 introduced super-extra-duper fatty bold fonts. Fatter than the Futura bold fonts. I want to get rid of this uglyfaced font that is hardly readable on non-retina screens.

Tried to lower the level of [ layout.css.font-visibility.level ] from default 3 to 1 ... doesn't do anything.

Do the Mozillians really believe that every FF user has a Retina type screen before their eyes ? With the 20/20 vision of Superman ? What were the devs thinking ???

Hi there,

I've been a fan of the multi-container feature for quite some time, and I enjoyed it most of the time. The only thing that annoys me, however, is that eveytime after I've removed some default container named in Chinese(I'm a Chinese and my Firefox UI is in Chinese as well), Firefox always added those same container back! Everytime! I just want to keep the containers that I've named in English and nothing else, and yet Firefox doesn't seem to understand that. It seems Firefox thinks I, as a Chinese, would definitely want those containers named in Chinese, which I don't. Hope you understand, and someone from the dev team can help fix this, because other than this specific issue, I don't have any complaint about Firefox, which is just a great browser and is keeping get better and better!

Thanks and have a great day.

FF was configured for https only and should of provided a message at the very least but it continued to configure the non https.

This is a critical fault as it clear says in the configuration https only. See the screen capture enclosed
