Firefox has begun changing my address when I enter it in an online form on a website. Instead of saving my address as entered, it alters it to something else. For example, if I enter my address as "1234 Camino Las Roblas" it changes it to "1234 The Roblas Road". I'm not having the same issue with other browsers. Also, when I check the address as entered by Firefox with another browser, the other browser shows that it's reading correctly. So it appears that Firefox may be entering my address correctly but just not displaying a correct readout. I'm wondering if it's automatically translating the "Camino Las" part of my address from Spanish to English and substituting "The _____ Road"? Would like to know if anyone else has experienced this and how to correct. Thanks much.

BT changed their Yahoo email a few days ago. Since then I have two problems:

1. If I paste in text from WORD and then send the email, it appears in the received email with the following strings related to font/format before the actual text:

mso-bidi-font-family:Calibri;mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-latin;mso-fareast-language: EN-GB">The proposal for us to vote on is therefore

2. I can type in text, but if I type a Return, it will no longer type until I click on the screen where I want to type.

After discussion with BT during which I deleted the Cookies and Cache, I tried Microsoft Edge instead and it worked perfectly, suggesting that there is an incompatibility between BT Yahoo email and Firefox for PC.

I would be grateful for your help as I would prefer to use Firefox.

Thanks Martin

Urdu words are broken on `Firefox` (`version 80`) and `ubuntu 20.04` on Facebook and main search window (They are alright in wikipedia). Chromium and Chrome are rendering them properly.

I changed the font settings in firefox and selected the same fonts as they were in Chrome but it didn't solved my issue. I've also installed and used Nafees font package as indicated [here](https://askubuntu.com/a/542683/864585). It corrected the shape of characters but words are still broken. Similar [thread](https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=222388) on `linuxmint` forum provided an answer. It uses same fonts as that of chromium but there's an extra option of `"Text encoding for legacy content"` and uses Arabic in that. I can't find this option in my version of mozilla (I'm attaching picture of option available in my mozilla?


Can someone please suggest a solution or can help me to find the option `"Text encoding for legacy content"`.

I have a website, which has a simple script in the form of a javascript url that is supposed to redirect to a mailto address. This is, obviously, a simple attempt at preventing email harvesting/spamming. This link doesn't work as expected. The link opens in a new tab, but the link isn't parsed and handled. Works as expected on Microsoft Edge. Is this expected behavior? Is there a workaround?

Firefox relay isn't working at all. I wanted to test the service, so I created a ProtonMail and PayPal account to give it a shot. I set up my newly created ProtonMail as my primary e-mail address on my Firefox account, so that relay forwards e-mails to that address. I then created a PayPal account using one of relay's e-mails. That went no issues. Then when PayPal asked me to confirm my e-mail address, things went south. Despite relay's counter of "forwarded e-mails" going up, nothing was showing up on my ProtonMail inbox. I checked on my previous e-mail and still nothing. I saw in the details of the relay e-mail that it was indeed supposed to be forwarding mails to the ProtonMail address, but it wasn't working at all. This isn't a problem with PayPal nor ProtonMail. I received Firefox's e-mails asking me to confirm the primary e-mail change, so ProtonMail is working. Furthermore, when PayPal sends me confirmation e-mails, the counter in relay goes up, so PayPal is sending them and relay is receiving them, but they ain't coming into my ProtonMail inbox... nor spam. Solutions?

Even though Firefox 80 and 81 release notes doesn't say anything, many websites stated that hardware acceleration on Linux X11 was introduced in Firefox 80, but disabled by default, while it was enabled by default in Firefox 81.

This is what I see in my about:config and, honestly, it's definitely unclear (using Firefox 81, of course):

HW_COMPOSITING available by default / blocked by env: Acceleration blocked by platform OPENGL_COMPOSITING unavailable by default: Hardware compositing is disabled WEBRENDER opt-in by default: WebRender is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_QUALIFIED available by default / denied by env: Not on allowlist WEBRENDER_COMPOSITOR disabled by default: Disabled by default WEBRENDER_ANGLE opt-in by default: WebRender ANGLE is an opt-in feature WEBRENDER_DCOMP_PRESENT opt-in by default: WebRender DirectComposition is an opt-in feature OMTP available by default WEBGPU disabled by default: Disabled by default / blocked by runtime: WebGPU can only be enabled in nightly

What should I understand from this? Sounds like it's all DISABLED on my system (Linux Mint 18.3, based on Ubuntu 16.04, Intel Haswell integrated GPU). Why!?

Also, what is the right way to enable some hardware acceleration now? OpenGL, WebRender, FFMPEG/VAAPI... it's a real mess. Until some versions ago, I simply used layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true and this enabled OpenGL hardware compositing. But what is the right way to do it now?

Why can't Firefox developers simply add an option in Preferences to enable or disable hardware acceleration!? The only current option "use hardware acceleration when available" doesn't mean anything. I have been using OpenGL hardware compositing with layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true for years with no issues at all, yet Firefox always decided that I should not use any kind of hardware acceleration on my system... Quite disappointing.
