Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

Recently a Website "Fastly" tries to connect to its own IP addresses. Even if nothing has been done to call it,

My research shows that Fastly now owns the IP addresses formerly used by the known spyware ad supploer Cambridge Entreprenurial 199.232.0.0 thru 199.232.255.255. I see these connection attempts because my FireWall specifically blocks the address used by Cambridge Entrepren... So the FW gives me a popup. (which I can bypass temporarily)

But I can't find a way to stop it or what is causing Fastly to do anything. It just seems to call home when it feels like. The only consistency is only partial at best. That is for Amazon.com. In that case sometimes connecting to Amazon.com works fine. But much or most of the times I do not get an even cl;ose properly formatted Amazon page. And if I do get an OK Amazon home page, odds are high the next tab-page I open will be messed up, or not have any formatting or no graphics at all.

Any ideas? And can we get rid of Fastly or do we just have to block sites that allow Fastly to operate?

I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

Hello, My problem is when I did the lastest FireFox update on 11/21/20, YouTube video's will not play on FireFox, even with the accelerated hardware un-checked, and even in Safe Mode. However - YouTube "does" work just fine on Google Chrome.

My system: MBP, High Sierra, using FireFox version: 83.0 (64-bit). What Ive done so far: Ive shut off the ad-blocker, the accelerated hardware is always off, went into Safe Mode and still the vids wont play. YouTube video's play perfectly fine in Google Chrome.

FireFox: I can watch movies on Amazon Prime with no problems. Its just a YouTube problem.

Thanks very much for your sage advice.

After formatting a brand new computer, I am facing issues when printing a few PDF files where Firefox will alter the font and size. I've tried other browsers (Edge, Chrome) and none of this happens. I've also attempted a few fixes like resetting Firefox, reinstalling Firefox, changing settings in the print preview (which is an excellent way to see the problem without even having to print).

Specific example: A PDF attachment in Roundcube Webmail is printed, and the text fields have the font size adjusting to the height of the field. In this particular instance I will share an example where the original PDF has a form text/memo field that defaults to use Helvetica font with auto-sizing - begins at about 12px and gets smaller to fit the text inside the box.

Printing this PDF from Firefox (to an actual printer or to PDF) results in the bad font settings mentioned above, and when using a PDF printer I find that the font changed from the original's size 10 to Arial size 62. This issue can also be perceived using the print preview.

If anyone has some ideas, I would appreciate it.

Bets regards.

Désolé, vous n'êtes pas autorisé à demander la requête http://testproxy.umontreal.ca/ de ce cache tant que vous ne serez pas identifié. Please contact the cache administrator if you have difficulties authenticating yourself.

Which means the request is rejected (bad identification, cache access forbidden). It is accepted and works fine with Chrome and Edge. Is it a problem with the last update ?

How can I get a Theme or Create my Theme in Menu - Extras? It is difficult to move on with this.

I wish a Theme with the Text in the URL addresses with yellow colour and a dark colour background on the Top where I write the URL addresses.

Something is wrong when I try to follow these steps: > You can activate one of these built-in themes by following these steps:

   Click the menu button, click Addons-icon Extras and select Themes.
   Click Activate next to the desired theme.

It's being difficult to activate the theme I choose.

I am running Firefox 83.0 under Windows 7 Ultimate: I am a voracious reader of amateur writing and have accounts on several websites. I use Reader View in Firefox due to my less than optimal eye sight. It works perfectly on Literotica.com and Inkitt.com, but on Wattpad .com, Reader View has a difficult time capturing the full text of a page. It will usually capture only blocks of the text and it is extremely difficult to make it capture a desired block of text. Why is this and can I do anything about it? PerryNormal perrynormal@att.net
