Hi there,

My custom font (avenir) displays fine in all other browsers except Firefox. My site is: https://madebycircular.com.au/

Here is my code:

@font-face {

 font-family: 'avenir-book';
 font-weight: normal;
 src: url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.woff2') format('woff2'), /* Super Modern Browsers */
      url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.woff') format('woff'), /* Pretty Modern Browsers */
      url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.ttf')  format('truetype'), /* Safari, Android, iOS */

}

I can't figure out what is wrong.

Thanks Clare

FF didn't used to be so slow. It now get really slow and uses a lot of RAM to the extend that my disk is full and I have to shutdown FF.

I do have like 30 tabs open, with one or two Slack-like web apps. However, I'm not using them all at the same time. In the first couple of quantum releases it didn't used to be this slow, never mind pre-quantum performance. Oh and I'm not gonna compare to Chrome or Chromium.

Any help with this? Is it the extensions causing it?

  • Also I never found a proper replacement to legacy Tab Session Manager (the quantum one is no where near as good).

DNS over HTTPS results in Little Snitch prompting for permissions for unknown numeric IPs — how can a user make judgments about whether to connect?

I use Little Snitch as a firewall. It prompts for a yes/no on each connection that is about to be made. The only way I know of to make an informed decision in each case is to see the servers requesting a connection, of which there are many for each page request. When using DoH, these become numeric IP addresses, about which I know nothing, other than looking them up with Terminal nslookup, the first several of which turned out to be:

23.193.33.57 a23-193-33-57.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com. 172.217.7.4 lga25s56-in-f4.1e100.net. 4.7.217.172.in-addr.arpa namelga25s56-in-f4.1e100.net. 52.216.205.35 s3-1-w.amazonaws.com. 13.225.222.73 server-13-225-222-73.jfk51.r.cloudfront.net. 142.250.64.99 lga34s31-in-f3.1e100.net.

None of these was directly related to what I was trying to do, though cloudfront and akamai are frequent flyers. So I don't know if these were encrypted-DNS servers (though only cloudfront is supposed to be a default) or participant in the page I was attempting to reach.

This is clearly not a practical way to use a browser. It would appear that I will have to have DoH turned off in order to use the firewall. Is anyone else having this issue? Is there any other solution other than turning DoH off?

Thanks for any help.

Firefox 'checks for updates' every few minutes even after just updating to 76.0.1 on Mac, Sierra OS. This has been going on for months and there is no solution in the community of users info. It causes everything to spin forever and I can't use Gmail, or internet or even stream a movie without it spinning. It's driving me crazy. I don't have a Preference to 'update manually,' only 'check for updates and let you choose to install them.'

There is a solution on Mozilla site but it's for Windows with all kinds of code. Won't work on my Mac.

Help please. Thanks for your input.

I haven't been able to find the answer to this. The latest update (72.0.2 64 bit for Mac) destroyed my Top Sites. I have 3 rows X 8 (24 icons). It updated, and they were all changed, with about half missing, and filled in with other sites. I took the time to replace them as they were, but the next time I started FF they were gone again. I've disable any plugins that might have caused it (I haven't added any in a long time). How can I retrieve my original Top Sites the next time this happens? Also, why is this happening? Thanks. --john

I accidentally declined to save a login and password for a website I use frequently and I can't find how to fix that. It's not in Logins & Passwords

Firefox explains how to save a login/password but doesn't tell you what to do if you accidentally decline that feature when it asks. Every time I go to my online intuit account I have to manually enter the log in info because I accidentally declined to have Firefox save the login info when it asked me. I looked in Firefox Preferences>Privacy & Security>Logins and Passwords and finally in Exceptions & Logins. It's not in either of those places. It shows logins that I DO have but it doesn't tell me how to add logins for websites that I declined saving them in the past. When I go to the website Firefox won't ask me anymore if I want to save the login... AAHH! Help please?

Hi, I did loose my bookmarks after repair too, but I am on an old Yosemite 10.10.5. I do have the folder "previous FF data", the folder says "bookmarksbackups", can I do something with this? Also I went to Library/application support/Firefox/Profiles and there are some interesting things in one of the two of them, what should I do? At the end of the second library screenshot, there is a storage folder, with only a few items in it, not included, thanks

sorry if there was an article on this but the post says Windows, I didnt bother, thanks

No tabs will open except the support or the three lines. 45 tabs open and none accessible. DO I just have to change to Safari and erase everything made by mozilla? What is the other name for the three lines? Do we really need the three lines, @ is easier to refer to, or * or £ or a thousand other characters all unused on all our keyboards. How should I create the three lines symbol? Has this been chosen so that no one can even talk about the three lines in a similar way that androod has the wank symbol for non-gay access to the root directory?

Running FF (v70.0 64bit) on a MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro 13-inch, Late 2011) running Yosemite. I've experienced the browser display dropping the character y as shown in the attached screen captures from https://www.realestatewebtrainer.com/bookrecommendations.htm

Same phenomena has also happened on other sites, as well as dropping the y from pull-down selections in Ninja Forms. Appreciate any feedback you can offer.

I use a mac mini.

Firefox updated sometime today. Now it won't connect to Amazon - Really? I sell on Amazon. I need to work. I cannot take 2 hours to fix Firefox and I am not very well versed in trouble shooting.

It doesn't connect when I type in the address bar It doesn't connect from my bookmarks It doesn't connect when I google Amazon and try that link It doesn't connect with or without www.

If I don't find an answer that I can use quickly and easily, I will be going to Safari. I'm used to Firefox. It has been my go to for 15 years. This is ridiculous.

I kept trying to select Restore Previous Session but Firefox option is grey and unable to access. I made a copy of the sessionstore-backups folder, then closed firefox, replaced the new sessionstore-backups folder, then restarted firefox and problem continued to persist. I noticed this morning when I started up Firefox that the amount of windows I normally have open for session restore doubled and where all blank. Can anyone help me restore previous session?

After an auto upgrade, the Firefox 70.0b5 was all grayed out, nothing worked when I started it. So I did a lot of research and re-started my computer. Now the Firefox works, but my previous sessions/tabs still not restored. I went to all history etc but it did not have all my tabs. I went to about:profiles and the local directory seems to be empty but the root directory has files. In the root directory, I looked into sessionstore, previous.js etc folders but there was just a whole lot of letters. I am not a technical person and don't know much about computers. How do I restore the previous session tabs that were on my screen before the upgrade? It's quite urgent and I appreciate your assistance as soon as practicable. Thank you so much!
