If someone wants to reset their browser they can search how to do it. Why on earth would you suggest a reset/destruction of a full working browser under the name of "refresh" ?????

One is abstracted, clicks ok, and destroys their well set up browser for no reason at all !!!

You should rename the damn "refresh" or better completely trash it!

The new design of Reader View has two problems:

  1. Given that this feature is particularly important for those with eyesight problems or other disabilities, it seems like a bad move to have made the buttons smaller.
  1. The buttons used to be on the left-hand side of the window, but now they're directly to the left of the page text. This means that the pop-out controls for the Listen button now overlap the text. So if I want to be able to read the text at the same time as listening to the TTS, I have to click a second time on the Listen button to hide the pop-up. Then I have to click on it for a third time if I want to stop the TTS.

I used to scan prints on my Brother printer/scanner (MFC-9330CDW) and download them to folders on my computer. In the past I was able to download the scans (pdfs) to any folder on my desktop. Now I am unable to do that. I would like to be able to correct that issue, because I use the scanning to save printed references for genealogical research. Please let me know how to get it back to the way it was, it is too complex and cumbersome the way it is now. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Out of all the hundreds of websites I regularly visit each week, two websites flag the exact same security warning on Zone Alarm every single time I visit them, and I have never gotten this warning anywhere else at any other website. I am already aware these two websites are not to be trusted so I suspect they have engineered something to compromise the Firefox web browser. Zone Alarm pops up a warning that "Firefox is attempting to monitor user activities on this computer. If allowed it may try to track or log keystrokes (user input), mouse movements/clicks, websites visited, and other user behaviors." A screen-cap of the Zone Alarm warning is attached. I deny this action in Zone Alarm every time it happens. Let me again emphasis this happens nowhere else, only at these two sketchy websites I occasionally visit and it happens every single time I go there and my concern is that they have embedded something in their webpages compromising the Firefox web browser.

If I check my internet speed in Firefox using various speed test websites, it shows 50Mb download, and upload shows about 9Mb. In any other Browser it reports 70Mb down and 20Mb up. It has been 70 up & 20 down for some years. If I restart Firefox in safe mode, I get 70Mb / 20Mb as expected. If I remove Add-ins, it is still slow. I tried a refresh, and it's still slow. I have no extensions, themes and have turned hardware acceleration off. Changing the proxy settings doesn't help either.

After upgrading to Firefox 68.6.0esr, when we open a Japanese file with [File]->[Open], it becomes garbled and unreadable. Before upgrading, we could read the Japanese file. This file is a plain text file and the character code is ISO-2022-JP. The character code is not specified in the file. I tried to change the character code with Text Encoding menu of Firefox, but the menu is grayed out and we cannot select it. It seems that files with character codes UTF and EUC can be displayed without problems. Is there a way to correctly display a Japanese file in which no character code is specified?

Regards,

I have been using Firefox for many years now. I use Pinterest all the time and some months ago the whole thing changed. The pins and boards became extremely small, it does not allow me to print anything (only the title of the page gets printed. I used to have 4 pics across and now there are about 6 and that is why everything looks very small. I have contacted Pinterest Help but they told me to clear the cache which I did and nothing. I have spent over $200 to get technical support on my laptop because I thought it was a windows problem. They couldn't fix it. I told them that I was able to use Pinterest for years and they answered me that it has to do with new updates on Firefox because an older version of firefox seemed to work and that certain algorithm's must have been changed. I really like firefox for the ease of this browser in so many other ways. Please help me as this is truly making me sad.

Thank you, Tobi

I have firefox pinned to my taskbar. Whenever I right click firefox and open private tab, the private window opens, but isn't selected, and is the last program in my alt tab window, so I can't start typing immediately. Also, sometimes it opens a lot of private tabs in sequence.

Using 78.0.1 on Windows 10, when I press F11 to get full screen in Youtube TV, it works, but it leaves a thin grey line at the very top of my screen (1280x800 resolution showing 1280/720 YTTV), and mousing over it drops down the Firefox tab and URL bars. That's "Full Screen Level 1". Using --kiosk prevents the dropdowns, but it doesn't get rid of the line.

If I play some video and mouse over the Firefox window while it's in Level 1 and not displaying any UI, a full screen icon appears in the upper right. Clicking it gets rid of the gray line and briefly shows the message, "youtube.com is now full screen." Now, mousing over the top middle of the screen displays that message instead of the Firefox UI. That's "Full Screen Level 2."

When I start Firefox, it remembers Level 1, but not Level 2, and the only way I see to get Level 2 is to click on the icon. I want Level 2 all the time for this profile, which I use on a small secondary monitor, and only for YTTV.

Any ideas?
