All my menu texts are so TINY now, that I can't read them, but the browser page is SO WIDE that I can't ever see a whole page and I have to scroll from side to side to read things, which is a ROYAL PAIN as I miss seeing a lot of things. No one can seem to help. I tried the limited percentage things, 67% used to work but now that is too big and when I go smaller I can't read ANY of the text, it is TOO TINY! I can't do my work! The screen shot won't paste on here.

The Bookmarks Toolbar is showing up with a message to use it, even though I don't want to use it and have not added any bookmarks to it. This has shifted the actual screen down one line and messed up things I do that rely on screen positioning. Please turn it back off.

Hi, It would be of great help to me if you could give me an advice how to fix my Firefox browser in order to be able to use it with sound. It used to work untill a few months ago, but once, with no reason, just stopped playing sounds , no matter if I accessed a news channel, Youtube or other site that uses sounds.. for this purpose I am forced to use Chrome or Microsoft Edge, but I like more Firefox. I mention that I have an i7 laptop with a Windows 10 OS. Thank you.

Websites browsing history does not update or delete. Opening the sidebar, right clicking on an entry and using Forget About this site or Delete Page has no effect. Menu>Settings>Privacy. Private is unchecked. I've selected Clear History Time Range Everything, all boxes checked. Settings When closed Firefox should delete all boxes checked.

Remember Browsing History and it doesn't update when I open the sidebar. Last Visited is the only selection that shows any sites and it doesn't update as I browse new sites. By Date and Site, Most Visited, by site, by date do not show any sites.

I've even uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled and not sure how but it has the same history as well as last tabs opened.

Hello,

My version of Firefox started to malfunction.

Found the latest version of Firefox available, and installed it.

Resulted in total loss of data, I lost all bookmarks, passwords, and add-ons.

A folder called "Old Firefox data" was created on my desktop.

Is there still a chance to recover my data?

Why was all data lost?

When I try to access a login I have used in the past I can no longer access it. Instead the tab just gives a (($root.title)) message.

When I access the site via Chrome I can login without problems.

The site is not special, as far as I can tell. https://www.aarproadside.com/aarp/

Something has changed in a recent Firefox update because, as I said, I used to be able to access this site with Firefox.

Help please I don't want to use a different browser for some sites.

A website I use regularly has internal links that no longer work in regular mode. They used to work and still work in Troubleshooting Mode.

These links are imperative to using the webpage. I'm not sure what changed or why they work in troubleshoot mode, but I need to fix this right away. They also work on other browsers.

On or about Nov 3rd, after restarting Firefox (106.0.5 (64-bit)), I cannot get the "Bubblez" game to load. I am a long time Firefox user, but consider myself a Novice in technical terms.

The game is at https://wellgames.com/free_online/bubblez/

Thinking the game server might be down, I tried the Microsoft Edge browser, and the game plays as usual. I have not(to my knowledge) changed any settings or preferences inside Firefox, not added any new addons. I restarted Firefox in SafeMode, and the game still fails to load. It is stuck on the green circle as indicated in the attached screenshot.

Any help will be appreciated.

Firefox Lags While Typing After Last Update

Long story short, it's in the title. After the most-recent update, Firefox has been hanging whenever I type, and I'm right in the middle of typing a novel. The CPU usage spikes, according to the Firefox Task Manager, to 300% or MORE just from typing a few words. Even right now, typing this, the screen is sentences behind where I am in my typing. Took an entire minute for the page to catch up. On a single paragraph.

The hanging/lag does not occur when I navigate between pages, stream videos on Youtube or Netflix, or other things which should be about 100x more resource-intensive than typing a few sentences. And yet, that's all that does it.

There are no problems with lag when using Chrome, Discord, or other internet-based programs for typing. There are some issues with my word processor, Open Office Writer, but only when Firefox is open and running too, even though the two don't interact, to my knowledge.

I have followed every step on this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding This page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems And this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-or-cpu-resources beyond upgrading my computer, because it is absolutely ridiculous to consider doing that given the circumstances. It's only Firefox having the problem, after all.

In addition, I have reinstalled my keyboard driver, turned off cursor highlighting (it wasn't on, but I enabled it and disabled it again, just in case), and removed any delay in repeat keys in the keyboard config. No difference.

Honestly, I don't know that there's a community-based solution for this, but I'm willing to be wrong about that. I just want to make certain someone more official than myself is aware of the problem.

Thanks in advance, -Tyr
