Using an online accounting website, data entry is done through a data grid with a data control.

The accounting software allows for the option to use their own date selection control or to use the Firefox date selection control. I don't like the software's date selection control, I prefer Firefox's. However, when set to the Firefox date selection control AND if the fields in the data entry grid get wider than the screen, Firefox shrinks the date selection control to practically nothingness and the value in the control cannot be seen.

Is there something I can do stop Firefox from doing this?

I've attached an image containing 1. the data entry grid 2. the Firefox date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen 3. the software date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen

In the last month or so it seems when there is a Firefox update I lose my bookmarks. I can still see them, they just don't work. I have to delete them and start over again. This is the third time in roughly three weeks.

Hi,

A firebox browser automatic update earlier today has resulted in various pages I visit subsequently crashing the browser.

It is particularly problematic because one page that now crashes is my Barclays Bank login page, which I normally check every few days.

I know that rollback of updates is not recommended, perhaps not even allowed, but surely if an update results in a page like Barclays crashing the browser then there must be a fix pending?

Please do not reply with "try another browser" or "try your phone" - I don't do banking on my phone, and find both Chrome and Edge packed with too much ad crap, making browsing painfuly slow.

I would prefer you to reply with "Here is how to fix it so you can continue to use Firefox..."

Kind regards,

R

When I visit "elofootball.com" with Firefox, "Atlético" is shown as "Atl�tico". When the page is not yet completely loaded Atlético is shown correctly for a brief moment (first screenshot without country flags). After the flags are displayed "Atlético" becomes "Atl�tico" (second screenshot with country flags). So it doesn't seem like the characters themselves aren't supported by the browser because Firefox can display them, just not once the flags are displayed as well.

Edge and Chrome do not have this problem, they just show the page like you'd expect without the � in the place of characters with accents. Any idea what might be causing this and can it be fixed?

Hello all. For the past couple months i've been able to use the web version of Google Earth within the browser with little to no issue. However, about a week or two ago I discovered Google Earth stopped working whenever I tried to use it. I would navigate to Google Earth's website, click "Launch Google Earth", and be met with this loading screen which never changes. I went to Google for help and they had me run Memtest86 on my computer, to which I found all of my RAM sticks were fully functional with 0 error or issue.

I am using the absolute latest version of firefox as well as my operating system. I am running Windows 10 on a custom built PC for gaming, 64-bit. I've tried the following:

-disabling browser addons -restarting firefox -disabling my antivirus -disabling my antimalware -restarting computer (multiple times) -disabling ALL of my browser addons

Now at first google earth wouldn't load in google chrome either, but at some point during my troubleshooting for fixing google earth on firefox, google earth began loading in chrome with no issue. As of now the only browser that can't pull up google earth is Firefox. I've attached a screenshot of the error messages I see when loading Google Earth in firefox.

Please, any and all help would be greatly appreciated. If there's anymore relevant, useful information I could provide then please let me know.

New laptop. I believe there are major issues with Windows 10. I've posted them on MS message boards but no one is experiencing them (don't notice? Don't care?). I use Firefox, and while I don't believe Firefox is the problem, I thought I'd post some of them here (the short version).

Links open by themselves without me clicking or tapping on them. When I'm in a Hotmail email or message board compose screen, or a web page with fields to enter personal information, very often when I click to a spot, the screen scrolls up by itself (happens in Chrome too). Sometimes, writing an email, when I click to a spot, the cursor will instead appear a few lines up (not where I clicked). Even if I don't click, the cursor might, all of a sudden, jump somewhere else while I'm typing, or paused typing (even in a Google search field). At times, when I hit the backspace - to remove characters, text - I'm taken back to the previous web page instead. I have seen this complaint when I searched it. But I don't want an Add On that disables the backspace. I just want it to work as it should, not take me back a page.

And no, it's not malware. And I didn't have these issues with my old Windows 8 and 8.1 laptop.

Can anyone tell me why the following html code doesn't work:

<audio autoplay>
  <source src="file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
Your browser does not support the audio element.
</audio>

I must say, it does work in Microsoft Edge, but in no other browser, including Firefox. And how could I make it work? I want the audio file to start playing when the page is opened, in the background, no controls, no loops...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes, I have set the options to open, see attached. If I go to a website and click on a PDF it will open in Adobe Reader. When I go to Outlook.live.com for my email and click on the PDF it opens them in a Firefox preview. When I print them from Firefox it takes an average of 5 minutes per page. If I download and open in Adobe it takes seconds to print the entire file.

Ratsit.se has a function for copying an address. When you right-click on an adress, a yellow sign apperas. Clicking that, the whole address will be copied. This function is missing, when opening the website under Firefox (works with other search engines). The function still seems to work with Firefox 70.

SEB,se. You can get your annual account statement with other search engines, but not with Firefox - here you only get the empty form (headlines show).

Can someone explain what's wrong, or even better: fix the error?
