Hello, I have Firefox on all of my devices (Win10Pro, Fire tablet, Samsung phone, etc.). Recently got a Raspberry Pi 4 (Linux) with a 24" (1920x1080) monitor and Firefox (78.11.0esr 32 bit) seems to 'default' to Mobile. How do I change to Desktop globally? Google Search comes up in the middle third of the screen. (Search dropped "Linux" from the search I tried on subject - Google is becoming worthless.) Amazon.com comes up as text on the left side. I don't want to have to manually change from Mobile to Desktop for each site that I visit. PLEASE, don't make me use Chromium....

Thanks!

In Firefox 90.0.1 (64bit) Windows 10, the text in certain web pages, include the main news page of bbc.com has become completely invisible (no width but they are there).

I have disabled all extensions but the problem is still there. I have also tried turning off graphics acceleration but the problem still persisted.

However, if I start Firefox in Safe Mode then the problem goes away. How should I pin point the cause of the issue?

The other day I started seeing a white bar at the top of full screen videos. Not just YouTube but any site that uses a video. It's very annoying. I've tried disabling ad blocking, various features in Firefox, my AV, plugins, and anything else I can find to no avail. Using the Developer tools doesn't see anything where the white bar is. It's driving me nuts! What would be causing this white bar and how do I remove it?

Hi, I have seen instructions on the Google search on how to do this but the instructions don't line up with the current version of Firefox. YouTube videos are all about using code which is beyond me. There must be a piece of software (app) or some other simple way to do this. Has anyone found a way yet?

Hello. For searching with search engine I always use an advanced search providing options (never the address bar search engine suggestion of FF). Thus the engine suggestion, located on the 1st line of the drop-down list of suggestions, is just annoying due to its uselessness and its location before my helpful bookmarks and browsing history.

It's just a detail but the clearer the visual information are (without any interference, noise), the faster the right choice is made.

I tuned FF configuration as neatly as possible about this topic but the phenomenon persists. Privacy & security -> Address bar: 'Search engines' is unchecked. Search -> Search bar: 'Search bar in tool bar' is preferred to avoid it to operate in the type field (no option for no search at all).

           -> 'Provide search suggestions' is unchecked.
           -> 'Search Shortcuts' are unchecked for search engines.

Please see screen shots attached.

Could FF experts provide any help ? Regards. j-p

I've been using site https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite for years to log in to AOL email for years and now, with Firefox v90, it takes over 2 minutes to load. It takes only a couple seconds with the Edge browser. I've tried troubleshooting mode, a refresh and a complete re-installation without any improvement. This never happened in previous versions of Firefox.

Any help is appreciated, Gary S.

Hi, Since a couple of days ago the "Print Preview" feature is not working properly again. I think we had an browser update. We had another one today and I was hoping the problem was going to be fixed but it was not.

I have the Print set to old (false) mode. I have used this mode for years to print all of my documents and webpages.

This is what is happening. I do my print preview and adjust the scale number accordingly. The print preview shows, I adjust number of pages, preferences etc. then hit print.

The page that prints is not complete. Is missing the part of the right side and bottom. I have not changed any printer settings. I have also changed it back to the NEW(true) printer mode an the exact thing happens. It happens with both webpages and documents. I first realized what what going on when I printed my bank statement and it was missing the right side and bottom of each page.

THIS IS NOT PRINTER PROBLEM!!!!! Using the EGDE and Explorer browsers, the pages print perfectly so it has to be a Firefox problem.

Can you please help me solve this problem. I hate to have to use another browser just to print. I have enclosed pictures of what is happening.

Amy

Hi,

I noticed that when I open a specific site, the tabs bar becomes huge, and when I close it, the bar goes back to its normal height. For example, it happens when I go to this page: Problematic Site

I have no idea why it happens. I remember that it did happen before, but I only noticed now that it has something to do with having some specific pages loaded. So I know it has happened because of some other sites, but I don't remember which ones.

Even if I change the tab, the tab bar stays big, as long as the problematic page is loaded (even on the background).

This also happens in safe mode, so it's not because of my extensions, I imagine. Also happening on another laptop here.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Thanks,
