This is actually a rather entertaining issue really. So, what is happening as you can see in the screenshot I shared that Firefox is using a rather flamboyant font I'm not familiar with actually. This seems to happen exclusively within text-boxes on forums where you have control over the font used. This text box, for instance, does not have the effect.

    I have had this happen on a few sites now, and have nailed it down specifically at this point.  It's always a text box, and only those which allow you to change the font characteristics and style.  Without the ability to change font, it uses the fonts from my settings.  Yet, weirdly any time that I get a text box with options?  Same garish font rears its ugly head!  lol.

Firefox bug - disallows typing, page forwarding, stuck on home page, letters appear but are deleted as fast as you type.

I noticed an error by off-chance while using Facebook. I clicked a link which lead to a site I've visited before... but. The moment I clicked it went to the Tab screen. Brought my other tab to the home screen. When I tried to go forward, back or type in new address it would not let me do anything. I shut down PC through power button. Turned back on and let me browse as normal. Did a scan, have found no virus or malware.

Sadly, i don't have an error report to give and I couldn't inspect the elements to see if something was messing with it. As it would just continuously reset my page screen. This is the first time this has happened.

Recently Firefox in Ubuntu (latest version) has started adding a ?reload after every URL and in the event that there were parameters being passed, it replaces them. For example, it gives filename.php?reload when it originally had filename.php?ID=1. Since it's doing it primarily on my development sites, it makes it very difficult to reload a page when testing.

It is tiresome keep entering the same details all the time. In chrome there is a feature which will autofill all your personal details when asked to do so when entering competitions. is this available in Firefox? I don't want to have to keep using chrome! I don't just mean the autofill for logins and passwords as i have seen this. I want it for things like name, address, email, DOB etc If you could also direct me to it through the array of options in the settings. Thanks for your help

It's an intermittent issue but very frequent and annoying, and I think it is related to the firefox's over sensitivity to touch pad gestures. I have experienced many times whenever I intend to do a two finger scroll, the browser interprets it as adjusting zoom(which is via two finger pinch). It can't be the issue of my touchpad device / driver issue because pinch zoom and two finger scroll has worked perfectly on other browsers and apps. I haven't encountered a single case where an app interpreted my two finger scroll as a zoom action since the moment i bought this laptop. I believe it has something to do with firefox.

After all recent updates (including the one today 1/29/20) a new window opens informing me that settings for Ad Block Plus for Firefox have been deleted.
