For the last few versions of FF (currently on 88.0.1 (64-bit) OSX Big Sur) certain websites display text incorrectly where the text is bold and each character is offset with the next one (see attached Images).

It only seems to happen to certain websites and happens both within my web based email and on standard websites - but only some of them.

I've attached a photo of the issue in my webmail - I'm viewing an email sent to me using mailchimp, but even this is inconsistent as other emails using mailchimp are fine. And as I said before it happens on websites too (examples attached).

I have this issue on my 2020 iMac and my 2020 M1 MacBook Air but not on my 2019 iMac. All 3 are running latest version of FF and all synced to my FF account and have all the same settings. Attached photo of plugins/extensions installed too.

Please help me fix this it's so frustrating!

Thanks

Hello!

I perform some translations through address bar searches, which use the URL of a translation engine (Bing/Google translate).

One thing that I couldn't solve is how to encode newlines. Sometimes, the text to translate includes newlines. When I copy/paste, the address bar flattens the text, entirely removing the newlines. For longer texts, this makes reading the translated text more difficult, because the result is a single, very long, line.

I've tried pasting "%0A" and "\n", but they are encoded.

Is there any way to encode a newline via copy/paste into the address bar search URL?

Thanks.

I don't know how it happened and I don't care. There are a couple of search engines that I hate with passion. Yahoo and Bing. I was surprise and annoyed when I saw Yahoo delivering search results. I never asked Yahoo for anything and never will. Why are they then replacing my Google search engine? Did anybody , like me, authorized such search engine replacement. I love both Mozilla and Firefox, so when I saw Yahoo, one of my most hated search engines replying to my request, I was angry. In a way I felt betrayed. Doing things behind my back with entities that I don't want to deal with sounds like something Microsoft would do. Which brings us to my second most hated search engine. Bing. I feel the same way about Bing as I feel about Yahoo. Which makes it easier for me to: Request urgently and strongly that these two search engines (Yahoo and Bing), never handle any information I request from Google or Firefox or Mozilla.

I don't want Yahoo or Bing to know what I'm searching for, or what I purchase or what I might purchase. I know, they could get such information from other sources. Fine, let them. But don't become their continuum. I hope my urgent request gets implemented as soon as you guys and girls get this notification.

Next time you decide to have replacements of anything from the way my Firefox is configured, Please, let me know, and let me know where can I go to view such changes and/or edit such changes. Thank you

So I don't know what it is but FF hangs on startup. I mean the window loads but if I type something it isn't reflected. I also checked the task manager and clearly FF was hogging lot of RAM on startup (nearly 2 GB) and the fan speed was also increased drastically. I waited for some time so that what I typed was reflected on FF, clearly the RAM usage went down after 2-3 mins and the fan speed also decreased.

Another thing I noticed is that when the FF is the current window, Alt+tab doesn't work on Windows OS (the windows don't switch). I tried with another applications as the current window and Alt+Tab was working. I don't know why.

I saw this changes after upgrading FF to the latest version (88.0.1 (64-bit)). I think these are the bugs in the latest version.

Someone please rectify and patch the bugs. Thank you.

Why do I get this message when I try to go to NBT Banks website: The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to nbtbank.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I only get this on my laptop, my desktop works fine. The settings on both browsers are set the same.

Fortunately, this situation is not happening across all websites, but on those that it does, I haven't been able to find a solution, yet.

As the title suggests, I copy a piece of text/paragraph from said website, and when I paste it in a word processor such as Pages or Text Edit (both Mac apps), the text is aligned to the left. The goal is to be able to paste said text with a justified alignment (predefined on the paragraph of the open document). It used to work flawlessly up until two months ago.

I'm don't know if some Firefox update caused this or maybe some extension might be interfering (I have checked the installed extensions and none of them appear to be the cause, but maybe it is the case). Either way, I've checked the same websites on Chrome and this issue is not happening there, so clearly it's browser related.

Any guidance, tips or help is very appreciated. Thank you.

Hey folks,

Hope everyone is doing well.

The title pretty much sums it up. When I right click on a link to select "open link in new tab" (or other selection), the menu seems to open just beneath the cursor causing an instantaneous selection (usually opens a new tab). I've tried using the browser without any extensions and the problem keeps occurring (just happened now when I tried to select the correct spelling for occurring).

This only seems to happen with Firefox.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.
