Attached is a sample of how web pages display. These can either initially display this way or, as in this example, the page opened correctly, I stepped away for a few minutes and when I viewed the page again it looked like the example. I can have a page open and it is displaying correctly, then open a new tab and go to a different site and the text will look like the example.

I have cleared the cache, dumped all the cookies. Restarting the browser (I do this many times a day) will fix the current page but eventually another page will display like this.

I running version 84.0.2 64bit on a Mac Pro Mojave. I don't have this problem with other browsers like Chrome or Safari. I never see it on my Windows 10 system.

There is a site I visit which embeds stock charts from tradingview.com

I can view any chart directly at tradingview.com but I can't view them when they are embedded at this site: https://www.edumomo.com/blog/2020/07/09/stock-market-watchlist-for-09-july-2020/

I've tried in private browsing since that eliminates any possible conflict with extensions but it doesnt work either.

I've updated firefox and it doesnt make a difference.

I don't know what else to do, I'd rather not have to switch browsers.

WebGL has stopped working. I think this has happened with Firefox 91.

For example, http://webglsamples.org/aquarium/aquarium.html gives the error Status: WebGL creation failed: * tryNativeGL () * Exhausted GL driver options. (FEATURE_FAILURE_WEBGL_EXHAUSTED_DRIVERS)

I'm running Firefox on Debian on ChromeOS.

On about:support, WebGL 1 Driver Renderer: Red Hat -- virgl WebGL 2 Driver Rendered: Red Hat -- virgl

There are no WebGL errors in about:support

I've tried the Troubleshoot Mode but that made no difference.

Spectrum.net has changed their login page as of March 17, 2021. I am unable to login under Firefox and get Spectrum error 'IDID-1060'. I tried Edge and Chrome browsers with no problems. I contacted Spectrum and they say it's a Firefox issue. I've tried removing extensions, clearing caches, starting in Firefox 'safe mode', disable VPN but nothing works! I would prefer NOT to reset Firefox as I don't want to lose my changes. I'm on version Firefox 86.0.1 and Windows 10 20H2. Does anyone else have this problem or can suggest other troubleshooting ideas?

Hi, I faced the problem with Youtube recommendations on a video page. When I watch a video I can't see recommendations, comments and video title (see the image). In console i get an error: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/id. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed).

I am on arch linux system.

I've tried to: 1. Update all ca-certificate* packages 2. Disable and delete ad-block 3. Use another browser (there is no problem, only in firefox)

This problem is only actual on Youtube for me.

Website custom font not rendering all letters correctly in Firefox 75.0

I have a website with custom font that is stored locally on server, and is defined in CSS file: @font-face {

   font-family: 'quicksandlight';
   src:  url('/static/fonts/Quicksand-VariableFont_wght.ttf') format('truetype'),
         url('/static/fonts/quicksand-variablefont_wght-webfont.woff2') format('woff2'),
         url('/static/fonts/quicksand-variablefont_wght-webfont.woff') format('woff');
   font-weight: normal;
   font-style: normal;

} Chrome is showing all letters in this font, and Edge and Firefox are showing most letters correct, but not B, D, T, P, R and X. What I know is that this is only happening on words that have "font-weight: bold" or "font_weight: 600", when it's set "font-weight: 400" all letters are renderd correctly. This is bugging me af, and if somebody can help to fix this, without need to change to lower font-weight, I would appreciate it.

Every time I restart my pc and load google it asks me to 'agree' to their terms. It does not remember that I have done this and forgets the options I chose. It is just annoying having to click on it each time. I found an article online but it must have been applicable to an earlier version as when I go to Options > Privacy > History section there is no longer a button on the right "Exceptions..". I am using version 81.0.1 (64 bit). Any help appreciated. Thanks

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.nextechclassifieds.com because this website requires a secure connection. www.nextechclassifieds.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site. www.nextechclassifieds.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.
Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT

This is a trusted website, been using it for years without issue. Used it a few hours ago to check my account. Only problem is on my pc, all other devices including people I've asked, do not have this issue. Seems to be a problem with the firefox browser only.

I occasionally visited this site https://referti-empoli.uslcentro.toscana.it/portalepaziente_user/user-login (it's a site managed by the local health authorities). I am reported that a safe connection cannot be established with the message PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. I am not shown any option to consider this site SAFE (no matter what, it's SAFE and I need to access it occasionally). I also use ESET anti-virus software. I can access through other browser, at least the show me it couldn't be safe but allow me to go on. I don't want to switch browser once in a while to navigate. I want to use Firefox in any case (or switch to another one that allows me to). How can I make it work (apart from deleting cache, temp files and history, which did not work)? Thank you.

Firefox is my default browser. When I try to log into my account at clickbank.com, all I get is an endlessly spinning wheel icon. (PW and user name are correct.) When I use that OTHER browser (AKA Google Chrome), I can quickly sign in.

Any suggestions as to how to get Firefox to talk to ClickBank?

Thanks for any help you can share.

I got since yesterday error F7121-1331 when I try to stream any movie on Netflix.

Netflix support said it's related to firefox. They said to uptodate firefox but I have already latest version (86.0).

Only other solution according to them, is to use an other naviguator. And, well, it works with Chrome, so it seems really related to firefox.

I am using Firefox and have noticed that when I do a view page source I do not see the current page, but a cached copy. To view the page source I first have to go to options and delete data.

Here is how to reproduce. 1. Go to a website showing changing data 2. Right click and select view page source 3. Examine the page source to see that it shows an older copy of the data, not the current data 4. Go to options and search on the term 'cache' 5. Delete the cached data 6. Go back to view page source and try again 7. Now the page source is the current data seen in Firefox
