Since changing to a new monitor and running at 1440p, the menus and url bar are in tiny mouse print. The searching I've done so far seems to point to an update removing user control to change the font size on those items. I've adjusted settings and the pages are fine, but the two things I mentioned are almost unreadable. How can I increase the font size there?

Screen goes black when some videos play - audio continues, but screen is black. I am sire this is a Firefox problem - I have successfully watched videos using BING browser - same videos go black on Firefox. I have refreshed Firefox, cleared cache, restarted Firefox - cleaned cookies. Turned accelerator off then back on - because nothing changed. Does not do this with all videos, just some - some You Tube videos play, others do not. I have Windows 10 and McAfee Live Safe - all programs are current and up to dated.

Is there anyway to set a timeout on the Primary Password? It would be helpful if there was a time limit on how long passwords could be used before having to log in again. At the moment you have to close out of Firefox to lock it down again.

I would really appreciate if the Firefox Password Manager would time-out and ask me again the primary password every x minutes (lets say 10 minutes, better if configurable). I use Firefox in my home PC, I have two kids (11 and 13 years old) and they frequently use my Linux/Firefox session for their school necessities and leisure time. The problem is that often they end using my session and they have access to all my usn/pwd inside de Password Manger (Internet router configuration, Parental Control configuration, ecc.) My kids have their own Linux profiles and Chrome profiles for school but they usually get to use my own PC/web-browser sessions for practical reasons inside my family.

Thank you very much for your support. Hernan M. Vago

Would prefer to connect with Firefox.

Any help is appreciated.

For the past 2 days, Firefox is ridiculously slow in opening; 45 minutes yesterday, 25 minutes today. What is going on? How do I fix this? If it continues for another day or two, I'm switching to Chrome, because I can't put-off the start of my workday for much longer; it's unacceptable.

Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?

(OS: debian 11, if it matters)

I'm having an issue in which the picture-in-picture pop-out won't stay maximized. It's been happening for a while. I will maximize it on one monitor while I work on another, and it will restore itself to the last size I had it periodically. Usually, if I don't maximize it again, it will change sizes again, a few seconds later, shrinking down to about a 480p sized window.

There's no rhyme or reason for when it happens. I could be in a different FF tab or window, or in a different program, or just sitting there not doing anything, and it can happen. Sometimes, it happens multiple times in a short period of time (just now, it restored itself 7 times in a row, less than 30 seconds apart). It never happens when the video is not playing, however.

This only started a couple months ago, but it got noticeably worse in the past week or so. Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Computer specs are: Windows 10, 10.0.19043, Intel core i5-7500 CPU, ASRock B250 Gaming K4 motherboard, 16GB RAM @ 2133Mhz, NVidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB.

I run Firefox Developer Edition.

I recently added some lines to my hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts). Despite these additions, Firefox ignored the hosts file and loaded the pages I had blocked just fine. So I tried a multitude of options like disabling "Enable DNS over HTTPS" and eventually I got to work and the hosts file was respected.

So after thinking about it for awhile, I actually DO want Firefox to ignore the hosts file like it did before I made the change. I reverted the "Enable DNS over HTTPS" setting to its default of enabled, and I've tried everything else I can think of, but I just can't get it to work.

How can I configure Firefox to ignore the system HOSTS file and load blocked pages anyway?

Could really use some help.

I have Firefox 107.0b5 (64-bits) Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 I use Ubuntu Mainline to update to newer kernels. Never had any problem doing that. I am now on 5.19.15. But when I upgrade to kernel 6 (which is now at 6.0.5) Firefox tabs crash. Reloading doesn't help. Each new tab I open gives the same crash message. I have to restart to get Firefox going again. So I removed kernel 6 and reverted back to kernel 5.19 and have no problems any more. But question, what is the problem between kernel 6 and firefox? Does anybody else experience this problem?

I have no other problems with kernel 6 with other programs or hardware or whatever, only firefox tabs crash...

I'm trying to track down a problem in our (Java, Spring-based) web application, that seems to occur whenever some extra, unexpected requests arrive from Firefox, with no session cookie attached, and with some Sec-Fetch headers different from the requests before and after them:

Sec-Fetch-Dest=empty;Sec-Fetch-Mode=cors;Sec-Fetch-Site=same-origin

These requests do not appear in the Firefox developer panel, network tab, even with all requests selected.

But both the HTTP access log and a custom "log everything" filter show the above, with the same Firefox User Agent, no cookies, and no Referer header.

e.g. 9:13:12,426 DEBUG com.ibm.gs.houston.filters.RequestLogFilter:GET->http://localhost:9080/payment/pos?execution=e1s1 (null/false), headers:Host=localhost:9080;User-Agent=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:107.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/107.0;Accept=*/*;Accept-Language=en-US,en;q=0.8,es-MX;q=0.5,es;q=0.3;Accept-Encoding=gzip, deflate, br;DNT=1;Connection=keep-alive;Sec-Fetch-Dest=empty;Sec-Fetch-Mode=cors;Sec-Fetch-Site=same-origin;, cookies:

I'm looking for any ideas why Fx is sending these requests.

I use Firefox 107 on MacOs and Kubuntu and have done for 2 years in this config. Opening a zoom meeting was as simple as right click join on google calendars for both platforms. About a month ago (early Oct 2022) this stopped working. Clicking on the open zoom link in the browser does not work either. It works on mac, but not linux!

Here is the console log from a right-click open:

I'm having an issue where firefox is acting as if there's something blocking pages/content. I do not experience the issue on any other browser.

I first noticed it trying to log into one of my accounts. The login portal redirects the page to a success screen and then to the home page. With firefox after entering credentials it shows a blank page with a 500 error instead.More specifically I believe it has to do with an api for "duosecure" (checking for multi factor auth)

another example is trying to download chrome remote desktop - normally you click their download link and pauses the current page while it triggers a popup to chrome's page to download the extension. It does this in any other browser I try except firefox.

This is on a clean install of windows 10 and a clean install of firefox. I am on the latest version of firefox (tried 106 and updated to 107 via the beta options) I have: - cleared cookies and cache - restarted firefox - tried safe mode - tried with and without extensions/addons and have removed all - uninstalled firefox as well as deleted all appdata folders - tried unchecking hardware acceleration - setting dns to none and changing the dns server options - turned off any setting i could find regarding popups, blocking sites etc - manually turned off enhanced tracking - gone through windows firewall and security settings to turn off everything that i could find that was "on" - rebooted computer - rebooted router - used the "refresh" firefox to set it back to defaults - tried connecting to the internet via ethernet and wifi options - windows updates Note: logging into other things such as gmail or facebook are fine on firefox but they don't seem to trigger redirects to outside sites.
