No website entered into the address bar works. Neither does trying to access anything by entering about:xxxxx (although about:support Keyboard shortcuts to access the same settings menus do not work either. This problem happened suddenly tonight. The back and forward arrows also don't work (although Troubleshooting Information came up when I selected it from the Help menu).

Edge and Chrome work just fine. I have tried deleting the cache, launching Firefox in safe mode, creating an alternate profile, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, deleting the folders manually and reinstalling, deleting/reinstalling in Windows safe mode, rolling back Windows updates (one update had installed today; I tried rolling back several updates just in case), removing Firefox from the allowed apps in my firewall software (AVG Antivirus), and completely disabling AVG Antivirus.

Hi guys, Yesterday when I found that Firefox was updated and reinstall a new version by itself and the problem is that it deleted all old data (passwords, cookies, preferences...) and I did not find the folder "old firefox data" on my desktop. Is there a way to get back all those data please?

Many Thanks

Starting from Firefox 88, and still in Firefox 89, the browser became exceedingly slow. Typing one line of text has a 4-5 seconds delay, and loading pages is even slower. I tried a new start, new user, refresh, etc., without success. Firefox 87 works fine on the same computer but 88 and 89 are annoyingly slow.

I run Firefox on Linux 4.19.0-16-amd64 with Debian 10, windowmanager Xfwm4, displaymanager lightdm

Any help?

https://bannergress.com/banner/self-similar-across-scale-24c4 The box in the upper left should be scrolling to display the whole picture. The problem is with every page of this site; I selected this particular page as an example.

scrolls on this computer: desktop Windows 10 Pro v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1

doesn't scroll on this computer: laptop Windows 10 Home v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1


What I've tried on the laptop so far (none of these solved the problem):

tried in a private browsing window

tried in Troubleshoot Mode

uninstalled Firefox deleted default profile folder (that was the only profile) deleted profiles.ini reinstalled Firefox

I rely on the previous sessions being restored after (the more and more frequent) updates for my work, as I usually need to keep track of many tabs.

Is there a way to save and restore all the currently opened tabs across multiple browser instances? (WITHOUT sharing this outside my computer!)

If you're going to tell me it does this 'automatically' well, yes, it usually does, except for the times when it doesn't.

After upgrading to Firefox 89, there is a large grey band covering the top half of almost every website I open. It doesn't seem to happen on reddit.com, but much of reddit.com isn't displayed properly, so there's still a problem.

I tried several things and ended up deleting my ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox directories, but the problem remains. The attached screenshot shows Firefox upon first start after deleting these two directories.

I'm running Firefox on Linux (Elementary OS 5.1.7, which is based on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS).

Any idea what's going on here?

When I use firefox on my main display (1920x1080 144h 16:9) in full screen there is a noticeable white line in the bottom, not using full screen fixes it, but a pain in the ass to resize it all the time. I tried using the browser on my secondary smaller display (1920x1080 60h 16:9) and there is no white line. This seems to be a bug, how do i fix it?

For example, the text copies in Word: Blah blah blah

hello..

Have a nice day.....

Here i am looking for printing support. My web application printing ticket with barcode from my system.

However it works fine but when we use silent print mode it is not printing barcode in my ticket.

Without silent it is printing.. What could be the problem ?

Is barcode image not getting downloaded and printing takes procedure ???

Or barcode printing not support under silent_print mode ?

Any guidance or solution for the same ?

Barcode image comes from my application.
