The default font for a lot of websites has changed and will not accept the settings to change back.

Default font is Times New Roman - size 12. Advanced setting "allow websites to override font" is deselected (disallow)

NOTE: when I was stupid enough to trust Mozilla developers and hit "restart to install" instead of actually shutting down and restarting myself, ONE tab in ONE window had been zoomed in. Now it appears that that zoom has been adopted as default, overriding whatever I put in settings.

That. Is. Beyond. Stupid.

The fact that the default font settings don't apply as default is also not the greatest...

Mozilla Maintenance Service version issue in Windows Apps & Features (Add/Remove Programs)

When Mozilla Firefox is installed from the installer, it (optionally?) installs the Mozilla Maintenance Service.

In Windows, the Apps & Features (old: Add/Remove Programs) list adds the Mozilla Maintenance Service in the list of programs it can uninstall. The version number entered here is the version number of the Mozilla Maintenance Service upon installation.

Other methods of updating Firefox may update this service (current release version: 102.0.1.8221) - however, the version number contained within the Windows Apps & Features (old: Add/Remove Programs) list is never updated, and will instead display the original installation's version number.

I'd like to recommend that this be fixed, so that the version displayed in Apps & Features (old: Add/Remove Programs) always displays the current version installed.

(One of those flaky "software updater" utilities pointed this one out to me. "You have an old version of the Mozilla Maintenance Service installed!" yes, if you go by the numbers offered by the Apps & Features list...

I just replaced my PC hard drive, Windows 10. I installed Firefox browser from Microsoft store. I have signed into my Firefox account online (that's where I am here, now). I wish to restore the Firefox settings, history and bookmarks as they appeared using the previous hard drive. When I just now installed and chose Firefox as my default browser, I was asked if I wanted to migrate settings from a previous browser. None of the choices was Firefox. I think I know why, but shouldn't I be able to import settings, etc. from my account? Is there a way to get all that back?

Thank You. Larry Young

Since the updates, prior to 97.0.2, I am having issues with the automatic download of files.

I have set up for files to open with specific programs, then I can save where I want and with the name I chose.

Now, I can still do that, but another download of the files still goes to my download folder. At the end of the day, I have to go delete all these files. How can I get this to stop?

Hi, as the title suggests I've recently had to reinstall windows on a new drive and am in the process of reinstalling/updating all of my programs on this new drive. I do have the old drive with the previous installation of Firefox on it, but I never bothered to make an export of this data unfortunately. Given that all of the data exists on that drive in some way, is there a way to bring this over to a new install? I can't use the profile sync because I never made the profile until now, sadly.

Ever since the update I have no visible Tabs but only bookmarks.... I can go to a website(tab created) and then go to another bookmark that is shown but when I close it it closes firefox. I've tried to download an older version such as 90.0 but it automatically downloads the newest vers. of 102. see attached pic... once upon a time the tabs were at top and if I decided to close it, it would close but it wouldn't close firefox, I would just go to another tab. Quit upgrading for the sake of upgrading! If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!! I need some assistance..
