Since v91.0 all webpages display incorrectly:

1. many coloured areas are mostly white 2. elements are missing or nonfunctional, i.e. invisible "x"s to close pop-ups, checkboxes that don't work etc 3. many pages look very weird and only vaguely as they have previously, or as they still do in other browsers (Safari)

I have attempted to attach a couple of screenshots showing: a) today's Weather Network page in Safari (which looks much like it always did in Firefox prior to v91.0) and b) how it now looks in Firefox

The difference is striking.

…but they are ≈3.8 MB each and this page won't allow any image attachments >1024KB. Can anyone suggest how to reduce the size of a .png image on a Mac?

After a few weeks of struggle I am close to abandoning Firefox after many years…

Can anyone help or offer any suggestions?

BTW the "Email me" checkbox below doesn't react when I click on it (although it does if I try this page in Safari), so I don't know if the box has been checked or not… Which is a perfect example of the type of problem that I am referring to, and which is rendering Firefox unusable for me.

So in plain text: PLEASE DO EMAIL ME IF ANSWERING THIS THREAD.

Many thanks.

The initial handshake takes typically a couple seconds in Firefox, while it takes in Chrome or Safari typically < 1s to display the first content.

Here an example of opening firefox.org: https://share.firefox.dev/3jpZRG4

I've tried all the recommended procedures without any success (personal mode, disabling extensions, starting with clean profile, ...)

Even this form I had to send twice because there was a timeout when sending the data up.

My internet connection is always > 30Mbps, so that should not be a problem.

Hi.

Two things keep happening in the Firefox preferences menu on my MacBook Pro, Every couple of days or so.

  1. The default setting for Home > Homepage and new windows reverts to Firefox home (default) even though I have set the URL to which i want FF to go when I launch it.
  1. Likewise, I set the Default search engine to Google, but it (along with the above) defaults the Browser default (Yahoo!). I have to reset it + go to the Search Shortcuts list and remove the Browser default.

This started happening suddenly a few months ago. Finally, I got irritated enough to ask for help here.

Thanks for your help.

This happens regularly for me, about 3 or 4 times per day. It used to be exclusively when I'm visiting https://translate.google.com. Today, however, it is also happening on twitter.com.

When it happens however, it has always been when I'm navigating to one of those domains in open tab that I was using. Also, it has always been when I'm relying on the bar's autocomplete (for example, when I start typing "tra" and the rest is auto completed to translate.google.com) and I tap the Enter key. No amount of refreshes fixes the problem even if I disable cache (I disabled it from the network inspector in the web developer tools). There's only one warning message in the console saying "This error page has no error code in its security info". Also, even if I change URLs while under any of these 2 domains in that "broken" tab, I keep getting a blocked page. Changing to another domain, for example, google.com works. For example, If I change from https://translate.google.com to: - https://twitter.com gives a broken page - https://twitter.com/firefox gives a broken page - https://translate.google.com/?sl=auto&tl=en&text=Hello%20word&op=translate gives a broken page - https://support.mozilla.org works


However, if I just go to the url bar and tap "Alt" + "Enter", the page successfully opens in a new tab.

I'm using Firefox on Mac.
