Last update of Firefox increased spacing between bookmark lines to double. No simple control seems to be available to control this spacing. Disabling features and doing surgery on the settings is a waste of time. Please make a simple control available, or revert to the more useful compact display.

I posted previously about this and mistakenly believed the issue had been resolved. I was mistaken also about the exact nature of the problem. This was the previous question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1348162

The browser crashes whenever I quit or attempt to restart. By restarting I mean selecting Troubleshoot Mode from the menu or pressing the button to delete the start-up cache and restart. These are the 10 latest crash reports: bp-f3da7332-06f0-4c79-8b14-e70740210902 2/9/21, 21:03 bp-53f2ba80-1f54-447a-85af-723450210902 2/9/21, 21:01 bp-afd9c845-e03a-4f9e-972e-68da60210901 1/9/21, 20:42 bp-916bcb43-2680-465a-8b8b-fddac0210901 1/9/21, 20:40 bp-479ccc87-0e54-4ff5-8c03-ef76b0210831 31/8/21, 20:51 bp-994d7424-def0-475b-8a0c-beba90210831 31/8/21, 20:46 bp-0ace2282-d5e9-4ed1-aeda-e08070210831 31/8/21, 20:40 bp-de957d75-4798-472e-8029-cd6200210830 31/8/21, 09:18 bp-36bece94-9415-45e5-8658-ae2290210830 31/8/21, 09:14 bp-0cd40c3a-787c-48ed-92a6-8a8830210830 31/8/21, 09:12 I have opened the latest.

I have reduced modifications in about:config as much as I can stomach and also tried disabling all addons.

I found a rather specific & fatal issue which causes Firefox to stop responding completely & needs to force quit.

If I copy any normal text content from a LibreOffice document & attempt to paste it into FF URL bar as a search term, the moment I select paste FF will stop responding & no text is pasted.

I have tried pasting text from other sources such as Gedit or an email, but that is fine. It is specifically text copied from LibreOffice (writer, v7.2)

I am using FF 91 on Gnu/Linux Manjaro 21.1

Today is the day I cannot use Firefox anymore. It keeps on blocking webservers in my local network because of a self-signed certificate.

It is a shame, I have been a loyal Firefox user since Netscape. Today marks the beginning of the end of this journey. A pitty.

So, Chrome it is from now on.

I have a HP office jet 6500 printer. It has been working fine from my Ubuntu Computer using Firefox . Since downloading the latest version of Firefox I cannot connect to the printer and there for cannot print or scan.

The printer is still working normally from a second computer using Windows10.

I have tried re installing the printer but that has made no difference.

I am wondering if the problem could be caused by the Firefox fire wall. Help please. Please note I don't even know enough to be dangerous so any help will need to be extremely basic. I know my name everything else will need to be explained step by step,

Thanks

John

None of my favorite extensions work any more. Script blocker, ad blockers, reader, etc. None of them work anymore. The add-ons won't even install. The issue is consistent with 4 different computers running either Windows or Linux. My guess is that recent Firefox software updates made add-ons useless. Is there any word from mozilla developers on the issue? Will third party developers be able to contribute add-ons again? Thanks! Nick

Hi, I am currently running FF 91.0.2 on Xubuntu 18.04 and recently icons are appearing abnormally on both Firefox internal web pages such as: about:preferences#privacy (see 1st pic),

as well as on external web pages such as: YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zrg2Vanfco (see 2nd pic)

I have re-installed FF and imported my old profile but no difference. I have tried to restart FF in Troubleshoot mode but it doesn't resolve the problem, what to do?


EDIT: Solution provided by cor-el solved the problem with Firefox internal pages. The problem with YouTube "new" black-and-white icons seems to be something else as these appear with other browsers too.

For quite a while I am using Firefox and had no issues, but recently, with new version , I am constantly facing two issues 1. the initial load of a page takes more then 30 seconds , sometimes 1 minute, but after the first page has been loaded if I open another page , it will be as usual 2. Completely random and without any sign of slowing down the OS - the OS freezes - nothing works at all and I have to restart it using the power button. ( and this happens when Firefox is open so I doubt Firefox)

version Firefox Browser 91.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0

When i first start firefox idk what really causes it and can't really reproduce the issue and it's random on all pc's/os's i try by one thing in common is that it happens when i use my synced firefox account

So when it starts and i open a website it "sometimes" just closes immediately and have to reopen that website Also happens from a saved session. It's the wierdest issue i have ever seen as it's random and there isn't a way to really reproduce it to as far as i know.

I am sure it's some setting that is synced with my account as i didn't have the problem before i have had this issue for a few years now i think and it's really annoying and have looked if there was anything similar to this issue and couldn't find anything.
