As of this morning, for some reason, certain websites present, random garbled text where normal text should be. This occurs on some sites and not on others. My second computer, running an earlier Mac OS, is working just fine, and other browsers don't have this problem.

Hoping someone can help. A screenshot from Wikipedia is attached.

The minimum tab width build into Firefox is 50. I'm used to much lower from Chrome, and would like it to be lower. I have many tabs open at the same time, and being able to see them all is what I'm used to. Instead of having to scroll for long time, it's really annoying! I saw a post that there used to be an extension which let you do this, but it stopped working with an older version of Firefox. Any help is greatly appreciated. :) Have a great day!

the labels toggle button on google maps is unresponsive in both satellite and maps views. where do i find a setting to allow this button to become active? can i program the button to become active? thanks for any help.

i'm on windows 11 and use firefox web browser. both are up to date. i tried it on the microsoft edge browser and it works.

i've tried disabling all addons, restarted firefox, and problem still exists.

next i went through all of my firefox settings and toggled those that might apply. problem still exists.

next went into about:config and checked all settings not set at default. toggled any that might apply. problem still there.

any other suggestions in the community? is there a particular area of firefox i should look into closer. i would prefer not to have to reinstall or reconfigure firefox on a wholesale level. i have it highly customized and it would take multiple hours over a number of days to get everything back to where it is. this is the only site giving me a problem, and only this function on the site.

under layers/more the globe view toggle works fine, only the labels view toggle is not working.

i inspected the button element in 'firefox inspect' and found the attribute disabled="false". google maps is not honouring the attribute. when i remove the attribute, the button works. i cannot apply this across sessions though.

Hello,

I recently did a clean install of my Windows 10. I was signed in to Firefox before formatting and had sync enabled for all fields, so I thought that once Windows was reinstalled and I installed Firefox I would get all of my history/password/bookmarks back.

Unfortunately, I've now signed into to Firefox and see none of my history/passwords/bookmarks. Is there anything I can do?

It would be quite devastating as I don't have any of that information anywhere else. I should've done a backup, but again, I assumed Firefox Sync would do that just like Google Chrome does.

Thank you

I use a MacBook Pro running OS Monterey and I've gotten the dreaded "Firefox is already open" message. Firefox isn't my primary browser but I do have tabs and bookmarks saved there. This has happened before, and last time I ended up following advice to delete my profile which wiped out my entire account (it was the only profile there, and I should have looked for an alternate solution because that clearly wasn't it).

I was very interested in switching from Chrome to Firefox permanently, but I'll be honest, I'm pretty frustrated that this keeps happening and putting my tabs/bookmarks/history/etc in jeopardy. If someone could provide a straightforward explanation as to how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

Btw, I already tried viewing FireFox in the activity monitor as I saw another site suggest and it wouldn't let me quit it (I saw it greyed out).

Uncontrolled tab bar scrolling

I restarted firefox today, and now I have the following behavior: I have a window with many tabs open, enough that I have the little '<' and '>' scroll buttons in the field. Whenever I move the mouse pointer into the tab area (including the scroll buttons, but not the '+' (new tab) button to the right), unless I am actively clicking, the tabs start scrolling rightward until only the rightmost set of tabs are visible. The window being viewed does not change. I can use the 'v' tab selector to the right, and it will select the chosen tab and make that visible in the window, and make the selected tab visible in the tab bar, but when I again move the pointer into the tab area, it starts scrolling to the right. Similarly, I can click on the '<' scroll left button, or double or triple click on it, and it will scroll the tabs leftward; but immediately after completing the action, the tabs will scroll rightward to the end again.

It seems my problem is the same one as in this thread but there was no solution given there (the problem persists after restarting Firefox in troubleshooting mode). I see the same behavior as that poster with the tooltips in the tab bar, but drop-down menus such as on this submission page seem to be working normally for me.

My Windows Task Scheduler contains an entry called "Firefox Default Browser Agent". If I delete it, it returns. If I disable it, it re-enables itself. How do I NUKE this permanently?

I already have telemetry and automatic updates both turned off.

A related problem is that the About Firefox window keeps saying "Firefox is being updated by another instance", even though I always "Dismiss" the prompt to download the latest version. (I'm using v107.0.)

Good evening. I'm seeking some help with an issue I'm having with Firefox.

As stated above, Firefox insta-crashes on startup. Hangs on opening in troubleshoot mode, then crashes after another 20 seconds and asks me to submit a report.

I believe this may have to do with the amount of tabs I had open when last using the browser. This morning I opened it up with about 7.8k tabs, and then closed it after adding another hundred. After trying to open the browser again, that's when the issues started. Until that point, the browser had been responsive and stable.

I've tried doing fresh installs of the browser and inserting the old data from the old profile, restoring to yesterday, and even trying without internet connection.

I have a Ryzen 5600X and 32GB of RAM, so I do not believe system resources are an issue.

Attached are some images. If any help could be provided, that'd be much appreciated.
