Hello Mozilla Firefox support, Can you help with the following issue? I'd like to use Firefox as my primary browser however it presents blurry letters, particularly the smaller the letter size. I am using Windows 10 Home, Firefox Version 89.0 (64-bit)on a Surface Pro 7. The SP7 screen presents clearly, however, my external monitor, a BenQ SW Series LCD Monitor has the blurry text. Thanks in advance for help or directions to pursue in fixing this issue.

Suddenly Amazon windows are not displaying correctly. Products are shown linearly down the page and very widely spaced vs the products shown in side by side boxes efficiently using the screen. The pages are displayed correctly when I using Microsoft Edge. I have provided a screenshot of Firefox and ME. How can I correct this? thank you

I have Firefox home with a search engine as home page, but since the update to 89, when I try to type into the search box, it jumps to the address bar. This is very annoying. Can it be fixed? I do not want to use the address bar this way. I found a help that said to open the application menu and click "customize" but there is no "customize" option there. In the attached photo, I clicked in the search box to place the cursor there, but as soon as I began typing, it jumped to the address bar. This has never happened to me before in the 15 years I have used Firefox. I am a recent convert to Linux (about 1 year now) and am using Mint 19.3, Cinnamon 4.4.8, if that makes a difference.

I cannot add a Zoom meeting to an Outlook meeting using my Outlook Web app. The Zoom add-in is installed and the button appears in the Web app. When I click it, I get the message "Zoom is working on your Add a Zoom Meeting request." But it just hangs there.

The Zoom add-in works using my Outlook Desktop client on the Mac and using Outlook Web in Chrome. Firefox seems to be the issue. Any idea what I can try to fix this?

Please help me get rid of the stupid and ugly Tab bar space on newest Firefox. I hate Tabs and now there is a big space above the address bar for Tabs. I have looked everywhere for a way to turn it off like it has been since Tabs came out. I only want new windows if I want a new window.

If I can't turn that huge space gap off is there any way to go back to what I had before the last update without messing everything up? Why did someone decide to make the browser window smaller and waste that space by making the browser bigger....

Sorry if I sound cranky but, I started using Netscape Navigator 1.0 and every version since and this is the worse thing that has ever been done to a browser... Thank you for any help you can give me!

Each time I perform a search in the search / URL bar in Firefox or on the Google.com website, the search results page scrolls to the bottom of the page automatically. I have no idea why. The issue does not occur in Chrome.

I am using Windows 10, Firefox version 89.0.2.

Basically, after I search, I have to scroll back up to the top of the Google search results page. Even after I have scrolled back up to the top of the page and clicked on the first link, once I go back to the Google search results page, the screen automatically scrolls to near the bottom of the page. It is extremely annoying, somebody please help. I can't find anything online about it. I don't think this is a scroll anchoring issue. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP.

I open the terminal (I'm using FreeBSD) and I run: `firefox --help` and I get a lot of command line options. However there seems to be no way to simply get the user agent string. This is kind of annoying because I might want to plug the current version of my Firefox browser in some automated scripts. At the moment I need to open Firefox, then go to the console and type in: `window.navigator.userAgent` copy the string manually and paste it wherever I want to use it. It would be really nice if there could be an extra option to the `firefox` command, like: `firefox --user-agent` that prints this information in the console. Maybe there's a way, if it is it must be really hidden because I couldn't find relevant information on how to do it.

Kind regards, Lucas.

After the update to 89.0 the Shortcuts have taken an 'visual upgrade' that makes all the images chosen for them half as small as they need to be because they need to have a 'cute little grey border' almost as big as the image between it and the corners of the square.

I have twenty four shortcuts, that I differentiate at a glance through the images without having to stop to read the text on each one and this stupid change is really roasting my mellows, I have taken a look and haven't found any option to revert it to the previous look, anyone knows any way to do it or do I have to install the previous firefox update and stop updating and give up security updates to save myself from this stupid change?

Could someone please provide userChrome.css which puts the tabs back below the Address Bar in Firefox 89.0?

All the other solutions I've found end up putting the tabs at the bottom of the window where the status bar is. It becomes translucent and the + button cannot be found.

I had one userChrome.css which did put the tabs below; however, the whole top of the browser went to the bottom of the screen so the Menu Bar, Address Bar, and then the Tabs appeared below the page being viewed.

Has anyone found a version that keeps the status quo but just moves the tabs to where they should be?

Thanks.

Hey all,

I upgraded firefox to 89.0 (firefox for ubuntu). When playing videos it now uses RDD process instead of Web Content. The problem however comes from the resources "RDD process" uses. It is consistently at 100% usage of a CPU core and this is causing my fans to be really loud. I fixed this by changing media.rdd-process.enabled to disabled in about:config and this fixed the system resource issue but I don't think this is what is meant to happen.

As far as I know "RDD process" is meant to use the GPU. My computer has a dedicated GPU so I am at a loss as to what is going on here. Anybody who has any idea?

Thanks in advance.

How do I get rid of this crap? I either select a crappy system theme and everything turns a blinding white, or go back to the theme I usually use where everything suddenly is dark. How do I remove darkmode while retaining my favorite theme? I don't want dark mode and I certainly do not want to be blinded either. There must be a useless setting added to the about:config that I can disable.

Thank you.

The CSS element, below, is not rendered properly in the current version of FireFox for Windows. I first noticed it with the introduction of FF 89.0.

If a web page with this element is scaled, the image contained within the element does not scale. This element renders properly in other browsers (Edge, Chrome, Samsung, etc.), and the current Firefox for Android. There may be other CSS elements that use some component of this that also will not render properly, but I didn't test for them.


.pixHolder a { position: relative; display: block; background: transparent url(xxxxxx.gif) no-repeat 0 0; /* image does not scale */ border-style: hidden; height: 100px; /* size not relevant */ margin-left: 20px; z-index: 20; }

Hi! With the latest update to Firefox, the tab height is now taking up too much of my vertical screen space and the option to make them compact seems to be gone from where it used to be in the settings. I've tried to search for an extension to fix this, but haven't managed to find one. What do you all suggest I do?

(I don't want to use Chrome. It takes so much RAM that I can't really run both Chrome & Discord at the same time, let alone anything else with it.)
