Force firefox to use unicode

I've had a problem on a particular page on my website that has resisted all attempts at analysis and fixing for years: the page renders in Western font in my FF browser (in all my PCs), whilst in a colleague's browser (from another country) it renders fine in Unicode. It also renders fine in Unicode on my PC when using Chrome, and Edge, and Opera. Only Firefox is a problem.

I would be happy if I could just tell FF to render every single page I ever visit in Unicode by default. But I have go to View > Text Encoding > Unicode every single time I visit this page.

For info, I'll paste everything in the page before the <body> tag:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <title>xxx</title> <base href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/admin/Gross_Profit_Reports.html"></base> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reset.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/text.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/images/favicon.gif" /> <script src="../js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="../js/jquery.stickytableheaders.min.js"type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script src="../js/sspextras.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="../js/common.js"></script> <meta charset="utf-8"></head>


Although we use <meta charset="utf-8"> now, we've previously had it as <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">, but that has been similarly unsuccessful.

I'm happy to make changes on the browser side in the webpage, but I really want to solve this. Grateful for any help.

However as soon as I switch my macbook off and on again, I am back to square one and have to delete old profiles and set my old one to default. This is incredibly frustrating.

Pages I visit on a regular basis, and have for many years, are now "disappearing" Twitter links, videos and other hyperlinks. This began in the last few days, Examples include Weasel Zippers, Twitchy, etc. When the pages first load, the entire content is there, but it vanishes very quickly, and I cannot acess what appear to be essential details in each of the stories. What is going on, please?

Why did my inactive tab automatically move and open a new Firebox browser window simultaneously when I clicked my inactive tab from my active tab in my original Firebox browse window? In fact, I prefer to see only 1 instead of 2 Firebox browser window. There is no reason for me to move my inactive tab from my new Firebox browser window to my original Firebox browser window manually.

First of all, there are so many articles on this site and others that don't update reflecting the huge changes recently in Autoplay options. So many settings from the past don't work or aren't even there anymore. Why are these pages not updated? Who even uses old version of this browser? 99% of the info online is irrelevant because of this sloppiness. Just go to Yahoo.com and see if anything works. Good luck with that. I did find one extension that did work (so far): Disable HTML5 Autoplay But we shouldn't need an extension to do something so basic, so intrinsic to web browsing. We all know distractions impeded our ability to get things done and cost billions every day as people's productivity sharply drops. There is nothing more distracting than a video! So its the number one thing to control. As long as you're over about 4 years old of course. Under that and we're fascinated by unfamiliar shiny objects.

So I'm curious about all the autoplay options I have in about:config and if any of these settings matter anymore, now that I have an extension that does what Firefox seems incapable of doing. When I search for autoplay, this is what I get, sorted alphabetically. I noticed that some are in bold. Why is that? And why is Mozilla so out of touch with us that they can't explain what each of these things actually does? I wonder if they even know. You should be able to hover your mouse cursor over an item and a popup should tell you what it does. Is that so difficult? Guess so.

When editing Google Docs the tab crashes after entering some characters. Safe Mode helps, but I cannot fix the issue without using Safe Mode

I am using Windows 10 Pro 1903, Firefox 69.0.3 (64-bit)

When I edit a document in Google Docs after entering some characters the tab crashes. If I stay on the same tab it stops to respond and after a few seconds it works again and all the characters I have entered appear. if i change to another tab and then back to the Google Docs tab then some round "reload" icon is shown, tab reloads and all is back to normal. When I change to about:performance when the Google Doc tab is hanging then it does not show up there anymore. After it is reloaded like 10 seconds later it appears again in about:performance.

When I start Firefox in Safe Mode then everything works fine and I cannot reproduce the issue. I then tried to narrow down the issue by disabling Hardware Acceleration, disabling all the extensions, plugins and making sure default theme is being used. But the issue was still there when I did not use Safe Mode.

I then created a new profile and after that did not help, I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the program files folder manually, reinstalled but the issue is still there. I also deleted all the Firefox System Add-Ons but still no success.

The issue happens with my normal Firefox in Private Mode, too.

How can I troubleshoot this further? What does Safe Mode do in addition to the things I have mentioned above?

Hi, I work in GNU/Linux + Gnome with several tabs (around 100). They have different context (research, personal, related to a course, and work; are some examples). I use several windows with several tabs each. I would like to have one group per window, to be able to close a window and not losing the tabs it had, (to close all the windows and be able to reopen them).

I cannot find a way to organize my tabs in such a way that windows don't isolate their tabs. There are plenty of add-ons to group tabs. But all of them end up hiding/unhiding the tabs of only the current window.

It looks that the underlying architecture is this: OS has Firefox. Firefox has Windows. Windows have tabs. Tabs are manageable only in the window they belong to.

Therefore, every window is only aware of its own group of tabs.

What I am looking for is a different approach, or at least the illusion of it: OS has Firefox Firefox has Tabs. Tabs are manageable, from any instance of a window.

Therefore, the window is only a viewer that is aware of all the tabs.

The plug-ins: Panorama Tab Group, Simple Tab Groups, and similar work a bit, but if I open a new window, and do some browsing, the old window does not know anything in the new window.

Is there a setting/plugin that can solve this problem? maybe I am missing some setting or I just don't know how to use the plugins... Thanks for your time. Best
