When using Google Sheets in Firefox, it's impossible to access the Sheets menu shortcuts (e.g. typing Alt+D+R+S to open the advanced sorting dialog) because Firefox captures the Alt keystroke and doesn't pass it to the web app.

Of course, Chrome passes the Alt keystroke to Sheets just fine so the keyboard shortcuts work as expected. But I don't want to use Chrome or any other Chromium browsers. Has anyone found a workaround to this issue? (Hint: don't say use chrome)

I have noticed recently that every week or so my Firefox browser will randomly change my homepage directory to the landing page / search for MSN, which is baffling, since it is obtrusive and anti-Mozilla to me.

If y'all are sneaking it in for that sweet ad revenue, I understand, but I would donate to avoid this issue.

Otherwise Firefox / Thunderbird are awesome, and I appreciate all that you do!

Hi,

I am testing v102esr of Firefox for a rollout in September.

One of this issues I have come across is the extremely high number of processes started when opening Firefox.

We have our own website run via Windows Server using IIS. The home page has no remote content - it's all local so I don't believe any remote content is being opened. There is only one tab open.

For each new tab I open I get at least one additional process. So with 10 tabs opened I ended up with 24 processes.

In FF91esr this was 3-5 processes. I also noticed under performance settings I can no longer specify the number of processes.

Is there any way to reduce this number to something more sane, like 3-5?

Also, why is there a Console Window Host running under Firefox?

Is the Node.js also new? I don't recall seeing it before

thanks

Every time Firefox updates itself, all of the text and images and page layouts become huge. I have tried every single fix that is usually suggested for this issue:

Zoom out with scroll wheel: Makes text smaller (and images, if I disable zoom text only) but does not fix page layouts (ex. Google search still has a horizontal scroll bar, even in full screen.)

layout.css.devPixelsPerPx: No effect at all. Can be made bigger at values over 1.0, but not smaller.

Compact mode: Sizes down the toolbar, but nothing in the webpages themselves.

Refresh Firefox: Still huge.

Safe Mode: Still huge.

Disabled all extensions: Still huge.

Complete uninstall with all leftover system files removed with RevoUninstaller, then reinstall: Still huge.

Other browsers: Display correctly. Absolutely no issues with size, including Firefox forks like Librewolf. (See attached image for direct comparison between the two browsers.)

I can temporarily alleviate the issue by using a restore point on my computer from about a week ago but when I opened Firefox this morning, it bumped me to an update page, and everything was huge again.

I was previously using a non-native screen resolution while I was recovering from surgery in bed and the screen was too far to see at 1920x1080. But I did not have this problem for two months of recovery. It started just a couple days ago. Returning the screen to its native resolution has not resolved the issue. Firefox, and only Firefox, is still enormous.

I updated the windows 10 installation on my Toshiba satellite laptop yesterday, 07-31-2022 and when i opened Firefox after that, it was huge - I have to dial it down to about 70% on the zoom to have it display even somewhat normally. I don't find any current answers when I google the question, so I'm asking here as I don't know what else to try. I've attached a screenshot to show how large it is, even at 67% zoom.

Win 10, Developer Edition 103.0b2

This update caused everything to increase in size. Tabs & toolbars are much bigger now. Toolbar and bookmarks toolbar used to fit in the window with no overflow, now both have a lot of items in overflow.

Sites that used to fit at 100% zoom now have to be reduced to 80% or 67% to fit on-screen.

Just wondering what could cause this behavior? Settings?

Note: Browser window is fully maximized and no other program on my Win10 box has this issue.

Firefox 103 screws with website zooming if you use the "Make text bigger" accessibility setting in Windows. 150% for example now zooms in a lot more with the accessibility setting in Windows set to 120%.

How do I undo this change so that 150% is 150% and not bigger than 150%? I had all my frequented websites set up how I liked it and now this comes along and messes it all up >:V at the moment it seems like 120% Firefox + 120% Accessibility is similar to what 150% in Firefox was like but it's not exactly the same. I've now gotta go futz with zoom levels for each web page I frequent again to find what looks most comfortable for each one.

Also this change greatly modifies consistency when it comes to the granularity of zooming. For example, what is 100% zoom when Accessibility is set to 120% so that I can avoid filtered scaling being applied to pictures? Why is the in-browser percentage indication not accurate with the level of zooming actually being applied?

The zoom level I choose is no longer the zoom level applied, there is now a multiplier in effect. So 50% isn't 50% anymore, 60% isn't 60% anymore, 70% isn't 70% anymore, 80% isn't 80% anymore, 90% isn't 90% anymore, 100% isn't 100% anymore, 110% isn't 110% anymore, 120% isn't 120% anymore, 130% isn't 130% anymore, 140% isn't 140% anymore etc.

A website that looked good at 133% can no longer be viewed at 133% if the Accessibility setting isn't also 133%.

Not a fan of whoever decided to implement this seemingly without a way to turn it off.

I would like to go back to the version that preceded this latest update please. It worked well. Please reply by email, [email-removed], because I can't read most of what's on the screen here. I hope someone pays attention to this, because otherwise I'll have to abandon Firefox, and it's been by far my preferred browser. Can't think what you've done to it. Your updates in the past all worked fine. I'm on a Lenovo ThinkPad S145 with Windows10.

This story is a bit long, but please be patient.

I have used firefox for over 10 years, it can keep about a year's or 1.5 year's history (randomly expiration). So, I save places.sqlite per half year if I remember.

I have so many places.sqlite's backups. These backups proved that, in the past, firefox only delete some "expired" history records about one year ago or earlier in these years.

But suddenly Firefox started to only keep history in 3 months.

I save my profile in a path : "C:\Users\Admin\Documents\Firefox" and use -profile C:\Users\Admin\Documents\Firefox in shortcut.

And let's tell what happened(a bit complicated.)

I installed windows 10 in 24, July, in another harddisk. I entered the new windows, installed a firefox, and used my old profile as usual. It looks normal, until I returned to my old Windows 10, I noticed that, my history is kept for only three months and the left is gone.


I first thought that, the version in the new windows had wrong settings and deleted the old history, so I restored the backup, which is 2021.6.4-2022.7.24. But Firefox continued to delete my old "expired" history, after a while. This never happened before. (I am still in old windows now, from now on everything happened in old Windows 10)


Ok, I assumed that the new firefox in new windows 10 "comtaminated" my whole profile. After a really hard try I still can't find out what is the comtamination. So I created a brand new profile, copied:

all extensions and its settings, cookies, passwords, etc. just a few json and sqlite files.

And then I recovered the places.sqlite with my 2021.6.4-2022.7.24 version, which has about 60,000+ history.


And---guess what, firefox still deleted my old history.

This never happened before, for so many years.

Firefox used to delete "expired" history, that's true, but still can keep more than a year's records. But since I installed the new windows everything changed. I don't know why, and I don't even know their correlation between all these things.

I have to keep history more than a year because I need to check many records. 3 months is unacceptable.

Version: 102; which is months ago's version but it still delete my history! Actually I tried 100-104, same results.

I tried every possible idea, but it just delete my old history.

In conclusion, since the firefox(not international version, but local version by our country's official web) "comtaminated" my profile, I can no longer return the status that firefox keeps more than 1 years's record. I tried all possible methods, for example make a clean new firefox and only put my old places.sqlite(2021.6.4-2022.7.24) inside, but it just delete it to only 3 months left.

Everything sounds like magic. But I am a programmer too, and I don't believe magic. I checked the source code of history expiration. (decko-dev )(Yes, it doesn't have anyway to absolutely ensure preventing from deleting, but I can't find any code that just precisely keep 90 days' history, either.) I am not sure whether I found the right place.

My questions are below: 1. If firefox doesn't keep so many records all the time, then why I have so many backups with more than a timespan of 1+ years in these years(from firefox 20+ to now)? I used firefox for many years, I changed my profile or create new profile for so many times with so many versions, but none of them delete my history only 3 months left, at least give me one year+ left. 2.Did I correctly find the correct source code? 3.What triggered the firefox started to delete my "expired" history so precisely, only 90 days left? 4.I need a method to return to before 24.June, the time firefox history manager works well.

I am not local, so some words may be wierd, please forgive me. Any any information will help.
