More and more websites are alerting me that they are not fully compatible with Firefox and that I should instead use Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge. Recent examples are Allstate Insurance and Hewlett-Packard, not exactly insignificant players in the business world.

Here's what Allstate had across their page when I was attempting to log in:

"You may not be able to use certain My Account features on your current browser. For the best experience, consider using the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge."

There have been other websites with similar messaging about Firefox. The issue seems to be growing. Is there a fix coming from Firefox or are we going to continue to lose compatibility?

Hi. I have experienced some font encoding problem occurring in the latest version of Firefox, not in previous versions. My system is Mac OS Monterey 12.3.1 and Firefox version 107.0

On some sites the fonts looks totally garbled (see provided screenshots). Disabling "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" in Firefox settings fixes the problem, but then all websites I visit displays with default fonts and not as intended. Moreover, I'm a web designer working with the built in web developer tools, and I need to see the correct fonts when developing.

Hoping to get some help with this issue.

Br, Magnus

In a new version of Firefox (new within a couple of weeks) behavior has changed. If I click on a html-file in my pathfinder, then it always opens in a new window. Very unpractical. Earlier it opended in a new tab - in case of several browser-windows open it opened as a new tab in the window last touched. I suggest you set that back in a coming version. Can I - meanwhile - change it myself?

When I go to a web page the browser opens the page and then automatically goes to the bottom of the page. I have to scroll to the top of the page. Every time I click within the page and return to the main page, it goes back to the bottom of the page. Is there a way to prevent this? It gets to be very annoying and when I am on a site where I will be moving around a lot, I change to another browser. None of the other browsers do this. It doesn't do this on every page, but more than 50%. Thank you.

This only happens on the Firefox Browser, Chrome and Edge are fine. Whenever I go to sign into my Groupon Merchant page, I get an "Access Denied" message. All the info on your support page shows there are solutions, but access to those solutions are not possible. Solutions online are years old and of no help. I am running the latest version of firefox.

Dear community, on both of my devices firefox does not function normally in recent days even though I run the latest version (websites do not open at all and all I see is a white screen with a firefox browser line). I am just curious whether other users from China reported similar problems which might indicate it is a China-related problem. Thank you! Warmly, Annette

The autocomplete feature keeps showing me the US version of the KLM website when I type "kl" in the address bar instead of my local version. And I can't seem to get rid of it, or to get my local version instead.

How to control what is the first result shown in the address bar ?
