Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

When I updated to the latest version of Firefox (83.0), I noticed that the process searching with the address bar had changed a bit. Before the update I would type text into the address bar, click one of the search buttons, and then see the results right away. Now I have to type text into the address bar, click one of the search buttons, and then press <ENTER>. How can I get the previous behavior back? Those buttons along the address bar drop-down are called one-click search buttons for a reason.

So, my mouse has thumb buttons, when I press them the browser either goes back a page or forward. When I play a Youtube video in full screen and press the 'Back-Button' it should load the youtube main page, the address bar shows youtube.com, but it just reloads the video I was playing. I think this has somethig to do with cashing, but I'm not an expert in that field.

I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

How do I show the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar at the top of the tab so it stays there all of the time? I have searched online and on Mozilla Firefox help and the instructions do not follow what I have on my iPad Pro 11. There is no place I can view or select or customize anything to do with the Bookmarks Toolbar or Menu. When a select the plus sign to open a new tab there is nothing but a search text box so I have no other choices. I want the toolbar and menu options to display all of the time. How do I make that happen? I have the latest updates for iPad Pro 11 and as far as I know for Firefox as well. Someone please help. I have been struggling with this same issue for days. I would attach a screen shot but I do not know how to do that using the iPad. Thank you. Marie.

Prior to the release of update 78 I used to be able to click on the address bar and it would bring up my top 20 or so site. I don't know why, but this extremely easy to use and accessible feature was removed. We are now on update 83 and the problem has only gotten worse. I've attached 2 pics in an attempt to showcase this tragedy that Firefox has created. I don't understand why I'm limited to the number of sites in the dropdown. Worse yet, only 1 of my most frequent sites are listed in the 6 sites I can choose from.

If you're attempted to make things easier for me, you've utterly failed... miserably! Also, not only am I limited to sites I DON'T use, I now have "Sponsored" web sites. GET OUT OF HERE WITH THIS NONSENSE! I now have 8 site to choose from, 1 of which I use. Remember, I use up to 20 web sites per shift so Firefox showing me 7 I don't use is extremely time consuming and frustrating. If only I could pick from my top 20 sites, like I could since I started using Firefox more than 15 years ago, then perhaps 2 "Sponsored" sites at the bottom of my list wouldn't be such a bad thing. Remember the good ole days when Firefox was customizable.

I understand that SPACEBAR is now the way for me to view my most frequent websites and that is a longer list and more accurate that the initial dropdown. Why do I have to click spacebar? This is unnecessary. Is there a way to make this spacebar view the default dropdown view when I click on the address bar?

Lastly, since, update 78 I have made several attempts to remove the "Search with..." at the top of the address bar. Can someone please come up with a viable option for me to move this redundant feature? The address bar itself can perform searches. I have the default search bar clipped into my browser. That's 2 places I can search... I don't need a 3rd search option in a dropdown that already takes me to where I want to go.

I swear, it's like no one over at Firefox even cares about the users anymore they just keep making changes that limit options and give us no recourse to correct their "fixes" that break my experience and productivity.

Hello,

Some "Smooth Scroll" settings changed in FF 82, and my scrolling now is not as "smooth" as it used to be. (I still have FF 52 installed and it's much better).

I've modified "general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS" and "general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS" to 400 and 200 respectively (default in older versions), but the scrolling is still jumpy.

I've also tried playing with "mousewheel.acceleration.factor" and "mousewheel.acceleration.start" but it didn't help.

I'd appreciate any help.

Even though another application is selected under Options-Applications for "mailto", it still changes the mailto to FireFox in the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\DefaultIcon.

This only happens when FireFox updates itself. It does not happen when FireFox starts.

So I have a dual monitor set up. It flickers on my main monitor whenever I do something that causes movement. For example hovering over tiles for youtube videos I can select, switching tabs, selecting the address bar, etc. But on my secondary monitor this issue doesn't exist (and I've tried to replicate it). I have tried the same actions and websites on google chrome on my main monitor to see if I can recreate it and narrow it down to a monitor problem however I couldn't get the flickering to occur once on chrome on my main monitor. If I place firefox in a neutral position (split between both monitors) and create the flickering it only flickers on the main one. This happens when the window isn't taking up the whole screen as well.

My main monitor is 1440p, 165 hz, gysnc, my secondary is 1080p 60hz. Any idea what the issue is?

My desktop computer has somehow lost all its settings. Not sure we properly backed everything up. If that is bad enough I cant make Mozilla Firefox my default browser. I click on the options setting (upper right) then make Firefox the default, then go to "Default Apps" under the computer main settings, Firefox does not show up as an option.

If this makes any difference I also have Microsoft Edge (new version) installed, and so Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome show up as options but not Mozilla. Additionally, every time I restart my computer I have to log back into Mozilla and have lost all my settings!

How do I make it so that Mozilla shows up as an option to choose as my default browser, and configure it so I dont have to log in each time and lose my settings?

  • After I updated to Firefox 83, my bookmark and history shortcuts now up inside the URL bar instead of next to it (Picture 1) (I know this is part of the new update 83, how can I change this back?)
  • Additional settings for the URL bar show up (as they should) after I go to a new website. Usually these options are always there (Picture 2) However, all these options disappear (Picture 3) as soon as I type anything in the URL bar and these settings won't return until I open a new tab and go to a website.
  • Lastly, when switching between search engines I know have to click the search engine and then also click enter to complete the switch. (I know this can be 'solved' shift+clicking, but I would prefer for it not to take an extra action and revert back the old pre FF-83 way)

Does anyone have any how I can change it back? - Either by reverting back to FF82, or by using about:config

i Totally agree with this now closed post: I just returned to Firefox due to high level hacker threats & identity theft basically I'm still battling,so I have to have all Social Media in Containers from now on & can't use other browsers w/o containers, so I get it all setup & had my sync on & the containers start acting up, so I see a suggestion to just simply refresh it, oh yea, that solves most problems, NO IT CAUSES MORE THAN IT SOLVES! Now my Lastpass pw mgr, can't get clipboard permission cause the page just comes up blank,when I try to copy/paste a pw, to sign into sync even, I had to past from outside using another browser & don't have containers on it, Brave should catch up to this, cause Chrome,clearly doesn't have containers, so I'm done using it & now w/o Firefox working right I'm screwed, it's so aggravating, Just when I thought firefox was doing good again, nope, you're back on my shitlist. I'm pissed just like this guy! I got my bookmarks & think I got the sync working but you shouldn't suggest refresh to fix issues, now how do I get my lastpass working? cause I have pop up blockers disabled & the permission page for firefox won't come up, just a blank page every time I try to copy a pw to paste in, manually, ugh, I hate this!

I stupidly accepted the Firefox suggestion to refresh my browser and everything i worked so hard for is gone. Its going to take me forever to FIX what your stupid site has screwed up. YOU REALLY OUGHT TO TELL PEOPLE IF YOU USE THIS YOUR GOING TO BE SCREWED

So I thought I'd just delete it and start over but even that has so many steps I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS STUPID CRAP AND I REALLY HATE FIREFOX FOR SCREWING UP MY COMPUTER AND MY DAY

I AM SOOOOOOOO SCREWED - all my bookmarks I HATE YOU I HATE FIREFOX I CAME TO YOUR SITE THINKING IT WOULD BE SAFE AND YOU HAVE DESTROYED EVERYTHING

I SEE in another thread about deleting firefox and creating another profile and about 10 million other steps i don't know how to do but if I close firefox as you said then i can see your frigging directions I HATE YOU

Modified February 16, 2016 at 10:39:48 AM PST by KC Chosen solution

I understand that you're frustrated, but it only takes a couple minutes to copy the files. Take it step by step. Do not delete anything, that will only make it worse. Do not use Windows' system restore feature, that may make it totally irreversible.

In another thread (https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1098179) you said the steps I posted were not clear. Where did you run into problems? Read this answer in context
