I'm seeing a really weird issue - https://rs2018.raffworks.com/ - on Firefox PC only, after opening a couple of the items up, the scrollbar completely stops working. Sometimes one item, sometimes three or four. But then bang! the scrollbar just locks up completely and it's impossible to scroll the page.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? Firefox on macOS is fine.

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

For this web site: http://ulsterhabitat.org/ in the post Ulster Habitat News (facebook) (third image, first small one), the link to the facebook page will only open if: I right click on it and choose "open in new tab" (It does not matter if I give focus to the new tab or not), then I left click on the link and it works. If I left click on the link first, nothing happens. (link says "Ulster Habitat Facebook").

What I have done: run in safe mode, refreshed Firefox, reinstalled Firefox 43.0.3 (with all profile data removed - as clean as could be) with no extensions, altered settings or add-ons. Behavior is always the same.

System is Windows 7 Pro, latest up-to-date version, but Firefox also does this on a W7 Home system, and a W10 Home system, both with latest Firefox. No Firefox extensions or add-ons on the W10 machine.

Bonus: Chrome 47.0.2526.106 does not do this (it opens the link immediately). IE 11.0.26 does just what Firefox does. It would seem to me that the link should either work or not work, but not depend on opening in a new tab first. Fascinated by this. Thank you. Tim

I CAN install and run and out of date Firefox browser, but I've been having PC issues thought maybe running the old browser was the cause of my issues, but it isn't because I'm now using Firefox Quantum 64.0.2 (64-bit), and my PC issues still persist. This problem is unrelated to the problem I am talking about today, which starts below:


The new problem I am having is that a couple of days ago, it just started, no Youtube comments load when I click on a video to watch. If I click on the notification bell, I can read the comments in there, and if I click to watch a video I commented on, if that video has 525 comments, I might be able to see 30 or 40 of those comments.

If I go to www.youtube.com and left click on a video to watch, no comments load. The video loads fine, and I can watch videos. When I scroll down, there is no loading circle, and no comments.

I went to Internet Explorer, and in Youtube, all comments are showing up. On my phone, all comments are showing up. Today I had notifications that some of my previous comments were liked.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1, 32GB RAM, AMD FX-8300, Nvidia GTX 970 4GB GDDR5, on board sound, on board lan. Firefox addons are Adblock Plus and Quick Dial. I was running this version of Firefox just fine, and a couple of days ago, I noticed that the comments aren't showing up. I had both of these addons installed, and comments did show up, now they aren't.

When I log into https://tv.xfinity.com I get the website up ok where I can select the show and movies (after having allowed the Adobe Flashplayer to work). BUT I cannot scroll on the website (no matter which graphics processor I use) unless I *disable* "Use recommended performance settings" and *disable* "use hardware acceleration when available". This started happening with the upgrade to Quantum. Is there a way around disabling those two settings for just this one website? Could Firefox please get fixed again to work properly even on the xfinity website?

I've been running Firefox 43.0.4 without issue until today. For apparently no reason, it suddenly began crashing every time I tried accessing a particular website that I previously had no trouble loading at all (http://inara.cz). I can access the website in Safe Mode, but nothing else works--disabling addons, refreshing Firefox, clearing cache and cookies, turning off Hardware Acceleration all did nothing to fix the problem. As a test, I tried accessing the same website on Chrome and had no trouble loading it, so I'm led to believe that it's an isolated problem with Firefox.

I have experienced this same issue once before with Google as the culprit website on a previous version of Firefox, and the only way to fix it was to uninstall and reinstall the program. I'd really appreciate any help with this issue that (hopefully) won't require me to reinstall the program again. Thanks!

I clicked a link through on a shopping cart, but for some reason Mozilla has stopped servicing Mercadona.es properly (when loading a saved list, clicking to send items to the cart itself) - always used to, doesn't now. I forgot, and used Firefox instead of IE, and all my hard work will be lost (again!) if I simply close the tab. There used to be a STOP button, but it's not there any more. How do I tell it to stop cycling, please? Thanks!

Hi,

We are creating a new national portal in Norway, which is for victims of violence. This portal provides helpful information for the victims.

When we started to create this portal an important issue came up. How can we provide the best anonymity possible for these victims?

A suggestion is that we open links in a incognito mode, but we cant find a way to force open incognito mode. Is there a way to do this? We are open for suggestions. The main issu is to have a clean history.

Hi all,

We have discovered an odd issue with Mozilla (several current versions tested) and one of our websites. There is a two stage login - username & password followed by eg mothers maiden name on subsequent page

When a new instance of firefox is opened then on completing the login answers the user is immediately returned back to the login page with a 'your session has timed out' message - basically our software returns our timeout page. If, on the same page you then login again everything is fine. If you close your window and open a new one then the problem occurs again. This is not cache related as I have done a lot of testing which almost certainly eliminates that.

Could anybody please offer further ideas? The site is https I have after googling tried a couple of random things like adding the site to exceptions list but no change. I have used developer console to follow the network calls and without a massive analysis, things seem to be correct.

I have tested in safe mode also so it is not related to extensions or add ins

Thanks for any advice.
