Expected: Firefox displaying all known Unicode characters.

Result: Many characters missing.

Failure page as an example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_and_political_symbols_in_Unicode

Description: I tried going through a Unicode list Unicode list and the extensive set of characters displayed correctly. However, when reaching further into character sets as shown in the failure page page, many are missing which are not new.

  • "Repair encoding. . ." button was not active.
  • An encoding switch extension was not able to resolve the issue.
  • Troubleshooting mode did not show changes.
  • Switched fronts available such as Noto Sans and Roboto Sans without success. Possibly a font failure?

Is it just me or is it impossible to click on links and stay on the same tab? Or am I now doomed to have 20 tabs open while searching for stuff on ebay, ect? Did firefox just make the forward and back navigation buttons useless because firefox is going to open a new page or tab every time we click on anything?

Website with silly login form confuses username completion

Hey!

The UK Met Office (UKMO) has a General Aviation (GA) service where they publish weather charts and such: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/services/transport/aviation/regulated/aviation-briefing-service-guidance It's a free service, anyone can create an account.

The login page, however, has a slightly odd way of collecting the username and password: https://logon.metoffice.gov.uk/Login?goto=http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/premium/myservices/

On that page, there are two <form>s, each containing an <input> element, one for the username and one for the password. The login button is just some javascript which fills in a third, hidden form and POSTs it. Once I have logged in and Firefox has offered to save the password for me (I have to tell it my username because the forms confuse this step too), it never manages to complete both forms. It only autocompletes the password.

Is it possible for Firefox to learn how to cope with this form? I suspect convincing UKMO to fix their website is unlikely, and they're probably not the only offender...

Hi,

Am I the only one plagued with an issue about the option "View" > "Toolbars" > "Bookmarks Toolbar" > "Only Show on new Tab" ?

It finally used to work until version 88

(prior to that I had to use custom css tricks)

With 89, it does not work anymore

The page is displayed correctly in Firefox 93.0 on my Desktop Windows 10 system, and when using Microsoft Edge on the Surface Go. Any suggestions?

I would suggest within the last month or so Firefox has started to hang in a way that everything continues to "work" but I cannot switch tabs and I cannot do anything else with Firefox until I kill it.

I can periodically reproduce this by: Randomly select and copy text on a website.

Behavior observed: You can no longer switch tabs, enter a new location, close tabs, or really interact with the browser at all even though it is not dead. Keyboard shortcuts do not work either.

Okay, PopOS 21.04, Firefox 92.0 x64, my packages are up to date, my graphics card (Nvidia 1080) drivers are up to date (nvidia-driver-470 (proprietary)), kernal 5.13.0-7614-generic.

I run a variety of addons, but the only ones that should even be touching YouTube in any way would be Noscript, Ublock Origin, YouTube HD, HTTPS Everywhere. In the past with my current configuration none of these have given me any issues with playback.

I don't have any idea why, this is a problem I experienced a long time ago and now newly the other day for seemingly no good reason, videos on YouTube but also the web in general will not play until I open Firefox, close the browser, open it again, and then try and do whatever it was I'm trying to do. While not a fatal issue, this is one that is extremely annoying and I really don't feel like putting up with it.

Anyone have any advice or information?

Cannot get rented/paid Youtube or Netflix video to run. Message "! Sorry, there was an error licensing this video" pops up onYoutube screen every time when hitting play button. "Free" Youtube videos work just fine, paid content gets this message. Have firefox-9.5.0.2.ta.bz2, use Linux updated software. Followed all previous suggested Support, cannot seem to find fixes that included DRM, Safemode switch, etc. Thanks for previous help, still stuck... anymore ideas appreciated. Also, difference between running "normal and beta", please explain, and how to know "differences?"

I got help with this from your group some weeks ago, but I had to reinstall my Ubuntu OS (linux v.20.04.4 -- using firefox) recently and can't recall the answer.

When I view a WikiSpecies list of file names (e. g., see https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Pentatominae), the instances which have been installed but never used should be in a different (reddish) color. I am attaching an image of a page containing a file named "Abadia" (first one on the left, just under "A") which is unused. I also am attaching an empty "Creating Abadia" which is the result of clicking on "Abadia".

Please tell me how to change the image of an unused, empty file. I recall that there were two different choices SOMEWHERE in the system, "Always" and "Never" I think: One of them forces a system-level color pattern which includes reddish unused items; the other allows the used to program arbitrary displays such as the above (typical example from the dconf editor is 'bg_color: #f0f1f2; selected_bg_color: #023C88', but this editor does not change the appearance of a file instance.

So this issue just started and it's really annoying.

In order to actually see the downloads, I first have to enable the menu bar and then go Tools -> Downloads

Clicking the ↓ button should open a panel of recent downloads but nothing appears when I click on it. Furthermore, the "download complete" notification that this panel provides are no longer present.

The animation for the panel still works though.

Is there a solution to this?
