Font look strange with large spaces when privacy.resistFingerprinting is set to true

Hello! Browser version: 126 OS: Kubuntu 24.04 LTS. How to recreate: Set privacy.resistFingerprinting to true while running Kubuntu 24.04, enter a webpage like Wikipedia.

When I have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to true it breaks websites fonts (see picture). This problem occurred when I upgraded to Kubuntu 24.04 LTS.

I get the following console error that might be of interest: "Request for font "Noto Sans" blocked at visibility level 1 (requires 2)" To fix this, I tried to set the following prefs to 2 without success: user_pref("layout.css.font-visibility.private", 2); user_pref("layout.css.font-visibility.standard", 2); user_pref("layout.css.font-visibility.trackingprotection", 2);


I ran the following command, after trying to find a solution:

for i in $(echo verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif | tr ',' ' '); do fc-match $i; done

and I got the following results:

NotoSans-Regular.ttf: "Noto Sans" "Regular" LiberationSans-Regular.ttf: "Liberation Sans" "Regular" NimbusSans-Regular.otf: "Nimbus Sans" "Regular" NotoSans-Regular.ttf: "Noto Sans" "Regular"

Which seems normal to me.

Is there some way to fix this without having to disable privacy.resistFingerprinting?

the email used for FireFox - glennww@cox.net was transferred to Yahoo. I can not seem to download emails sent to this email address into Firefox as I was able to do prior to shifting to Yahoo. I went in and changed the password to the new password and to the new POP server (pop.mail.yahoo.com) but emails can not be retrieved. What am I doing wrong. I deleted the email account glennww@cox.net and tried to re-install as a new account, but it was not accepted. I don't know where to go

For a very long time I have been using Afterpay successfully through Firefox. Since the last update of Firefox a few days ago, Afterpay has been failing to complete transactions. This has occurred on 3 different sites. I contacted Afterpay and it appears everything is fine on their side. This morning, after another failure, I tried the same transaction through Chrome and it was successful. Paypal still works with Firefox without a problem but it seems there is a transaction glitch between Afterpay and this updated version of Firefox.

I have a fresh install of firefox on a fresh install of windows 11. I am trying to login to my dropbox account and when I get to the MFA page the "Continue" button does nothing.

There are no add-ins installed in firefox and I tried it in safe mode as well. I turned off enhanced tracking protection. The site works fine in firefox on another machine. It works in other browsers on the same machine.

Dropbox support seems to be unwilling to help, they just told me to use a different browser.

We use a firewall that doesn't support the ZSTD standard yet so I need the ability to turn it off on the Firefox browser. I haven't figured out how to do that yet since the new version came out with support for it this week. (We have turned it off for Chrome based browsers already.) It tends to break a few of hte websites we are using.

Thanks.

Almost consistently every day and often multiple times a day, Firefox will freeze up, unable to load new tabs, and sometimes will display a message that the browser has updated and requires a restart. Upon restart (when fozen), I'm prompted to create a new profile because I'm using an 'older version of Firefox'. After creating a new profile, I'm able to update the browser and switch back to my original profile.

Although this is a relatively easy fix, Firefox requiring me to restart my browser without being able to do anything else is disruptive alone, but not even completing the auto updates, crashing, and requiring me to do a workaround just to keep using the browser is driving me back to a more stable browser.

I don't remember updates requiring a restart before, or maybe they didn't happen enough to cause issues in my workflow.

I have tried using the 'restore' feature in the uninstaller hoping that it might resolve the issue with no results, but I haven't found any reasonable other options with my searches online.

I'm running Windows 10, Firefox Release 126. I had the same issue with the previous version of Firefox. I was hoping 126, would fix the Chase Bank issue.. But it did not I read several articles from FF users, I checked my User Agent Settings, they are correct. Called Chase, they said use Chrome as Firefox does not have the 'needed code' to work with Firefox. Been using Firefox with Chase for at least 5 years.

Please help, Thank you

Hi,

example given:

<a alt="bla" onclick="return gtag_report_conversion('mailto:chief@example.com?subject=bla%20bla%20bla&body=more%20bla%20bla');" href="mailto:chief@example.com?subject=bla%20bla%20bla&body=more%20bla%20bla"></a>

works well with Chrome, Edge, Samsung but NOT with Firefox. Without the onclick-Event it works with Firefox too

<a alt="bla" href="mailto:chief@example.com?subject=bla%20bla%20bla&body=more%20bla%20bla"></a>

As the onclick is essential I wonder if there is a fix for the fox?

Thanks in advance, Alex

Hello Support, when I create an email in my primary email account (karl.volger@gmail.com) and sent it out, it also shows as sent out in a different gmail account. Any reply is being sent back to me is not going into my primary account, but to the other account, my email is shown being sent from there, and not from my primary account. All the settings in my primary account are shown the correct settings for sending and receiving emails. The only thing I did notice that I have dual folders in the primary account of Drafts and Sent..... Please see the attached image.

I couldn't sign in to my Ring App and received Incompatible Browser error message. Ring Support told me the new version of their app, which uses my default browser to log only works with Chrome or Samsung Browsers (I've never heard of Samsung Browser). Furthermore, they said I had to delete Firefox from my mobile device in order to get Ring App to work.

This seems ridiculous. What's the problem here please??

I prefer to use Firefox, why do I have so many compatibility issues?
