Hi, some Unicode characters are displaying as boxes. This has been going on for a while. When I restart in troubleshoot mode, the problem goes away (see first image I've attached). And I do normally use several extensions that might cause problems here, e.g. NoScript (although I've checked that font blocking is off).

  • But* when I restart in normal mode with all my extensions and plugins disabled, hardware acceleration off, and a default theme, the problem is still there (see second image). What else is troubleshoot mode disabling?

Thanks for any insights!

Recently I am continuously proposed to install updates. I do that, but I think the installation may fail, because immediately after restarting Firefox I'm proposed to install a new update. I have Firefox set up to download updates as soon as they are available.

The version I'm using is 104.0, which should be the latest one available for desktop, therefore I don't understand why the browser is trying to load again the update.

The VA is updating their website which is a joke. When I try to login to their website it puts me into a loop which keeps asking me to verify my ID. Frustrated, I changed back to Google and it worked fine. I don't know how to fix this or explain the problem anymore, but I really like FF but things like this makes me hesitant to continue to use it.

When I schedule a post on my Wix blog site, it indicates I'm in the New York time zone. My time zone is Perth, Western Australia and my MAC computer is set up for this. How can I change the Firefox browser time zone setting to Perth, Western Australia too?

Simple, clear instructions to recover most recent Firefox TabsSessionManager Session. I am to the point of just finding a new session manager. I have used this produce for years, but I am disappointed they have not updated and automated the recovery process. nor do they clearly explain their analog recovery process and I need this F*** now. Its not like I have contributed money along the way.

McAfee Blocked Site and Suspicious Activity by an app

McAfee has notified me that a piece of software which is apparently from HP (HPUpdate within HP Framework) is trying to access a suspicious IP address (13.224.2.51).

An online search doesn't show this as being associated with HP but it is in an Amazon centre so it could be associated with almost anyone.

Is there anything in the Mozilla world which would help me determine whether this is a genuine problem or McAfee is just confused?

At this point my option seems to be to reinstall the my HP printer software and see what impact this has.

Tracker blocking precedence with Ghostery vs Firefox tracker detection

I have Ghostery installed and when going to a website the list of trackers Ghostery blocks shows up in the status block that Ghostery projects onto that web page. Then going to the security shield icon that Firefox has next to the 'Home' icon on the address bar, Firefox reports 'No trackers known to Firefox were detected on this page'.

Can someone explain the order of precedence for detecting and blocking trackers here? Does Ghostery intercept the web page load before Firefox analyzes the page for trackers? If Ghostery blocks trackers is this the reason Firefox does not detect trackers?

Running Firefox 104.0.2 on Windows 10 Pro - latest installed patches as of 9/21/22.

And finally does Ghostery (not running Ghostery Plus) keep a list of web URL and blocked trackers somewhere?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Mailto is missing from my applications section in Firefox settings. How do I add it back in? I've done an online search but nothing I found worked.

I'm having difficulties adding an image but this is what is listed in my Settings - General - Applications: Under Content Type, I have: Portable Document Format (PDF) Extensible Markup Language (XML) Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) WebP Image AV1 Image File (AVIF)

I tried searching applications for mailto and gmail but I get no returns.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am setting up an new computer and after installing Firefox on the new computer, I synced Firefox with my old computer. The bookmarks from my old computer show up in the Library under "Manage Bookmarks," but they are not showing up in my Bookmarks Dropdown menu. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to display them in my dropdown menu.
