Since I updated Firefox, my posts in Instagram having been showing these weird dots, which I hope you can see in the image. (I made sure I deleted spaces between paragraphs, so they don't correlate with spaces.)

It doesn't happen when I view Instagram in other browsers.

I've seen it on one other person's posts, so it's not just mine. But it's obviously pretty rare. (Which might just mean that most people who make Instagram posts are not using Firefox.)

Any idea how I can fix it so this doesn't happen? My posts are created in Planoly, in case that makes any difference.

Thanks in advance!

On 7/7/2021, Last Pass stopped working for me w/ firefox. I removed it from firefox extensions, but when I tried to reinstall, Firefox gave me the error "Download failed. Please check your connection." Last pass still works for me on Chrome. I also did a "refresh" of FIrefox. Still no Lastpass. So what do now I do to get Lastpass to work with FIrefox?

I have a HP Laser network printer. I can print to it from everything except Firefox, my favorite browser.

Anytime I try to printer I get "Print Preview Error -- an error occured while printing".

I can print to a pdf, then print the pdf, but that is terribly awkward.

Is there a setting in Firefox causing a problem?

I used to use a lot the three dots next to a webpage to share the page via airdrop (to have it/share it with my own phone or others'). Now the three dots have disappeared and, although I read here that I could do that by right clicking the page, the option for SHARE does not appear. Can you please explain how to do this now? (I use a Mac).

It's really dumb that one can close own Main window without warning that too many tabs are closed or there is another window still running! And that's what happened to me: i had Private window in back, closed Main window thinking that i'm closing browser, and then surprisingly saw Private window is still there. As any ordinary user who already lost tabs in past i panicked and closed the Private window too. Started Firefox once again hoping for restore, but it opened with clear window and obviously there was no "Restore session" button in Menu, as i have "Auto restore" ON in settings.

I started to search for manual way, found descriptions with manual renaming/coping backups from sessionstore-backup folder. Like these= https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1275314 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742 But however i tried to copy and rename - each start Firefox ignores that, clears backup folder and again clear window. Lucky i thought about coping those recover. and previous. files from sessionstore-backup folder after first browser close, so they are safe. And i'm sure my tabs are still there = checked it with https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html.

So yeah, i have at least some way to get back tabs, but i'm really angry and curious to know WHAT is forbidding me to restore that file after manual rename??!

The appearance of my toolbars and tabs has changed a lot without my permission. How does this happen? It has confused me a lot and is no longer as easy to use, in fact it has become a burden trying to figure out how to navigate each window / tab I have open. Ex: some things that were in my toolbar have disappeared. Also, there used to be a pair of vertical arrows I could click once to zoom in or out. Now it has disappeared and I have to go up to the main FF menu then click View then click Zoom then click one of four menu items. This is nuts and adds several more steps to what used to be one simple step. WHY???? I have not downloaded any new recent versions of FF and yet all these changes were made anyway without my knowing it or asking for it. How can I get back to my former version that I was happy with?

FF89 told me I needed to download and install FF90, unlike previous updates, which have happened automatically. It said my FF89 data (bookmarks, customizations, etc.) would be pulled in automatically. Alas, FF90 has not pulled any data from FF89 nor given me any prompts to import from FF89. Any ideas why this happened (or didn't happen, as the case may be)?

Why doesn't firefox allow users to see what the updates are before updating? In earlier versions, when the update message appeared, you had the opportunity to see what was in the update. Not now. That sucks. Give the user that opportunity for heaven's sake!

Firefox Developer Edition downloaded 89.0b1 tonight. When you choose Submit Feedback in the help/about form it goes nowhere. Actually to a "coming soon" page for ideas.mozilla.com. Is that so you won't have to field complaints about the "improvements" in this version? Because I have several complaints.

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?

Hi, FF 89.0b2 Developer edition now contains a "fake editable" search field at the home page (the sentence contains in the class attribute so I used it here), when one start typing in it and the letters appear in the address bar.

For me personally this is partly non-intuitive partly annoying. I never met a scenario in UI of other programs, when typing in one place (where the caret is) show actual letters at another place.

Is this feature is here to stay or are there plans to to make it customizable? I used ff home page search for ages, now I installed a new tab home page extension with manually setting www.google.com in it.

Thanks
