Hi!

For quite some time I run Firefox in KDE over wayland using Gentoo package. Recently I enabled webrender to fix bad flickering while loading sites, and while that worked I now see garbled text display towards the end of longer web pages. I do not remember which Firefox version it was when I switched on webrender, but the issue persists through a few recent Firefox upgrades till my current 82.0 (this is Gentoo linux build)

Attached screenshot is of the bottom of this page https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.8.15 While top of page is always good looking, garbled text starts somewhere towards the end of page.

I'm not sure if this is a new issue or the same one as in bug 1667534.

Is there any easy option to fix this, or this should be filed as new bug?

HI. Firefox has been regularly crashing over the last month or two. Today it's crashed 4-5 times in 10 minutes. I tried sfc /scannow just now and there were no integrity violations. I've always submitted the crash report immediately after each event, however the last few were unsubmitted when I checked the log just now, so I've submitted them too. Firefox has always been updated to the latest version. Any ideas? Cheers Ian

Having a problem getting Firefox to open. When you try to click on it it looks like it wants to open, but the homepage is blank. When I try to log in the page stays blank. I can see the menu bar but none of the choices will open. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, each time removing any and all Firefox folders. Still will not open. Followed the steps for a clean install, no change. The last time I was downloading Firefox I received my first error message: c:\windows\system32\msvcp140.dll error message I get no other error messages, the home page stays blank. Any suggestions on what to try?

Hello.

I'm not sure how this happened, but I have a listing in Servers in the Certificate Manager with the following information:

Server: www.bignox.com:443 Certificate Name: VMware Lifetime: Permanent

Trying to go anywhere with bignox.com does not work as its using the VMware certificate for some reason. If I delete it and go to the site, Firefox says the site is not trusted. I cannot get to bignox.com via any other web browser (Edge, Chrome, etc..) as I get the same type of security warnings. I do have vmware on my computer. I can connect to bignox.com just fine inside the VMware. If I uninstall the VMware, then I get security exceptions.

My question is, where does Firefox see this information? I have no idea how this happened, but I would like to get rid of this association.

Thanks

Dear Mozilla support,

I just switched to firefox and Im having an issue with youtube. When i go to a channels videos and scroll down the page and open a video, when i come back to the previous tab the page resets up to the top. I dont know if this is a scroll anchoring issue or a memory limit issue, Im not sure. Here is how i can replicate the issue every time:

1. go to youtube.com 2. select a channel. 3. go to videos on the channel. 4.sort videos by date (oldest). 5. scroll down a lot and open a random video in a new tab. 6. watch video in full screen for 1 minute. 7. stop video and go back to the first tab. 8. first tab has now reset to the top.

I'm on firefox version 82.0 (64-bit) and i only have ublock origin extension installed. I do not experience this issue with chrome. Please advice.

Thank you.

Its 2020 man!

Why are we (Mozilla community) still missing content casting feature just like Google Chrome and other browsers. Even the new Microsoft Edge Chromium have that feature. I usually stream a lot of content and this feature, for me, is indispensable.

Furthermore, I am not asking for any workaround or extensions. There should be a native casting feature on Mozilla Firefox too just like other browsers.

Just downloaded Firefox. would appreciate any suggestions

  • menu bar, context menu, any type of drop down menu fails to open initially, only displays after a few clicks
  • tooltips on particular website making portions of content (that they cover) temporarily disappear, Most likely FF issue, not website issue after investigating

Firefox was working normally earlier in the day. I'm not aware of any updates on my computer. I didn't install add-ins. When I click the firefox icon to launch the program, the cursor momentarily has the hourglass symbol then nothing happens. There is not error message. Firefox is not shown in the task manager list. The firewall has mozilla firefox in the list of allowed programs. I've tried rebooting, reinstalling, the refresh tool, deleting appdata files, temp files, anything I could find in the registry with mozilla in the name, then rebooting again then reinstalling. I don't want to go back to Chrome... =(

Hi All

UPDATE: Deleting the old filter rules and resetting them did not help these 5 still become unchecked when I started up even though they are new rules


I know this is the firefox forum but when I post in the thunderbird forum no one ever answers any questions in there and this is driving me nuts so was hoping someone here might also be familiar enough with thunderbird as this forums always so helpful!

Anyways I have a number of message filters set up for 5 different newsletters I get. I want to keep them even though I rarely read is just the nature of the newsletter. So I have 5 filters set up to redirect them into their own sub folder and also be marked as read.

This have been working fine for years now without issue. But about 3-4 weeks ago I started to notice the newsletters would show up in my inbox. I would try and run the filters from the menu option and nothing would happen with the messages so I went into the filter panel and noticed that only these 5 filters were uncheckmarked so was why they were not working. So I rechecked them and ran the filter again and worked fine and I thought that was it. But few days later same thing the messages again showed up in my inbox rather then sub folder so this time I went right into the filter panel and same thing only these 5 were unchecked so rechecked and ran the filters.

It seems to be almost a daily routine. I am going to try and remove them and then re-add them and see if that fixes it but if not does anyone know of this issue with thunderbird and is there any solution just in case redoing the rules does not fix this.

All the other filter rules work fine never unchecked is just these 5 which just so you know all come from the same site just different language course as comes from languagepod101 just each filter is a different language but all the same base website.

Thanks

For some strange reason Firefox is not logging me into my favorite websites automatically any more. I have to manually log in every time. The websites' login pages are automatically filled when I move the cursor to the Username and Password fields, but I still have to click Log In. As soon as I log out and log in I am asked to "Sign In" again. I tried manually adding a website to the "Saved Logins" but that did not help. Using Windows 10 64bit.

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee
