On certain websites I am getting scrambled text, mostly in headings and titles, not so much in body text. I have followed several tips from other posts like mine, i.e., installed Open Sans font, but that did not do it. I turned off hardware acceleration, and cleared the cache. The only thing that did work was to start Firefox in troubleshooting mode. I only have two add-ons running, Short URL and Dashlane, I doubt they're responsible for this. Any other ideas?

Hi,

After an update, Firefox does not recognize middle click at all. It worked in the past, but no longer. For example, middle clicking on... - a hyperlink should open a tab in the background - a bookmark bar item or bookmark menu should open that bookmark in background - empty space on the webpage should initiate autoscroll - a tab handle on the Firefox title bar area should close that tab None of these work as of now.

I'm on Windows 10, and I am using a Logitech MX Master 3 via USB Unifying receiver. I checked Logi Options+ app and confirmed the middle button is correctly set to middle button (default) and there's no per-app settings for Firefox.

I am on Firefox version 102. It assures me I am up to date. My credit union insists I must be on version 107 to log in. I was able to download and install version 107, but it gives me a different icon and none of my bookmarks are there. It is like I installed it new rather than upgraded. I have no bookmarks, setting, etc.

My issue mirrors this thread, where the user ultimately got no resolution.

Protonmail has changed from mail.protonmail.com to mail.protonmail.me. I have updated my bookmarks and removed mail.protonmail.com from my history, but the .com domain is still the suggestion when I start typing "mail". I have tried shift+delete, tried deleting the individual entries of "mail.protonmail.com" from my history, but the behaviour has not changed.

"Forget about this site" does not solve the root issue because I do not want to clear all my cookies and history for the site. Deprecated sites aren't the only example where this would come up – imagine having to delete your entire stackoverflow.com history just to change your default suggestion to some oft-used resource like store.mycompany.com.

Thanks

A major reason I got Firefox was the ability to screenshot from shows that I streamed on the laptop. Recently I tried taking a screenshot and got a black and grey box indicating that it was blocked from capturing. Is this a Firefox issue that can be fixed with an extension or has Netflix updated the extend of blocking any form of capturing their shows once more?

So, after years of higher-than-normal security in Firefox (64-bit, Win 7) and accompanying problems in loading some pages, I decided to refresh (hoping to reset and have most/all pages load and display fully).

Well, tried refreshing and didn't see the bookmarks saved. Read about "Old Firefox Data" folder and thought I could retrieve anything I needed later. Deleting and reinstalling Firefox has resulted in the "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." windowed message.

Repeated uninstalls and reinstalls failed. Tried copying the "ng0ledtz.default-##########" from the "Old Firefox Data" folder into the C:\Users\username\Appdata\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles folder with no success.

Please help.

Deleted secondary email cannot be reused for a new account; Mozilla still remembers

Hi, here is my situation.

1. I made a firefox account with a (primary) email, e.g. email1@example.com. 2. I followed the instructions here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts to change my primary email. So now I have - primary: email2@example.com, secondary: email1@example.com 3. I delete my secondary email (email1@example.com)

I want to make a new firefox account with email1@example.com. But when I enter it https://accounts.firefox.com/ firefox wants me to log on. (And if I put in the password to the account it was originally tied to, it says to log in with the primary email.)

The behaviour I expect, especially for firefox which advertises itself on (among other things) privacy, is that if I "delete" something from my account, it is actually gone. But clearly, firefox is still keeping track of email1@example.com

There are other users who tried this in the past but not given a solution: - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1393844 - says to disable sync. I signed out of all devices - did not change anything. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356551 - no responses - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344201 - says to delete firefox profile. email1@example.com still being remembered by firefox (not that I really expected deleting a local profile to affect firefox's servers). - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1365073 - suggests deleting the firefox account completely. However, as the original poster of that question mentions, that would risk locking out both email1@example.com and email2@example.com , at least unless a firefox developer confirms that it would actually delete the data. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329144 - mentions that from a GitHub discussion, "a primary email that has been replaced with a new email is Not released for re-use"

I could not find that GitHub discussion mentioned, but assuming it is true, I'm wondering if there's a way/where I can make a request to the corresponding developers to implement truly deleting user data (when requested by the user)?

Thank you!

A week or two ago I was surprised when opening Firefox it asked if I wanted it to be my default browser as it already was default. I said okay and it opened but none of my saved passwords available nor were my bookmarks. I noticed that there were TWO Firefox icons on the quick start bar on my 2 month old Windows 11 laptop. I clicked the other icon, that opened and my bookmarks & passwords were there. I clicked Help -> About Firefox and both are the same version. I looked at Windows Apps and there's only one Firefox showing there. I don't know how to remove the second instance. I attached a screen shot showing two icons on the quick start bar, newly installed Firefox behind original installed version asking to become default browser.

I have Firefox 107.0.1 installed on my windows 11 22H2 OS Build 22621.900 and I had around 63 tabs or so open. I ALWAYS click the "X" in the top right corner and then it brings up the "close xx" tabs window. Then when I reopen firefox I can click history>restore previous session. Anyways I closed regular firefox.. because a friend of mine wanted to look up something but not interfere with my open tabs so we opened firefox private browsing.. thinking it wouldn't interfere with normal firefox... Yet when I went back to normal firefox and tried to go to history>restore previous session it was grayed out. So how do I get a hold of Mozilla to restore my account and stuff to 12/01/2022 at around 3am CST? Also how do I let them know that firefox private browsing has this issue with messing up open tabs in non-private browsing firefox? This is severely annoying and disappointing. I have tabs open for a reason and they should all stay there until I close them. But now they're gone and I wish to have them back. So if someone could let me know how to get a hold of a Mozilla/firefox staff member so they can revert my account that would be awesome. Just to be clear I was able to replicate the issue by having a few tabs open in normal firefox and then closing it.. then opening private browsing firefox and closing it. You should be able to go to history>restore previous session in normal firefox to be able to get your tabs back.. but are unable to do so after opening and closing private browsing firefox. Why is this? I thought they were separate and shouldn't interfere with each other in this way?

When I right-click a bookmark folder and select "Sort By Name", it sorts sub-folders to the top, then individual bookmarks after.

I prefer folders and files not to be segregated like that, but to be sorted together. That is how I have it in my file manager, I'm used to it, I much prefer it. I would like to be able to duplicate that behavior in Firefox's bookmarks. Is that possible?
