New computer, Win 11 and FF 120.0.1 all fresh installed and updated with latest versions. The double line spacing in bookmarks and all other menus is back. There was a fix for ver. 89 with the css file trick, but that DOES NOT WORK with this version. All other options I've run across don't work either. Why do the Mozilla software engineers think it's a good idea to break their flagship application every few years? Rhetorical question, I know.

Does anyone have a user fix that actually works with this FF 120.0.1 version? Something an experienced user can do that is not a programmer. analyst or engineer? I've been using FF since it first came out to challenge Microsoft's IE. Late '90s? I'd like to keep using it but this is too annoying to tolerate.

If anyone can help with step by step instructions, I would be eternally grateful.

Hello, I've got two profiles, 'Home' and 'Work'. I run two Firefox windows with these profiles. Now, I want to open a link from another application, like Slack or terminal, and want it to be opened in some predictable Firefox window. Now it depends, probably, on which Firefox window I opened last. So I want to be able to select in which window the links should be opened: I see it as marking a window as the default one. Note, that I don't want to set a default account, as there's no default account for me, I always choose which account to use when opening Firefox.

Thanks.

Scrolling in Firefox is causing any webpage to scroll many lines at once with a single click, and it seems to be exclusively happening to Firefox, as every other application scrolls normally. I have tried searching here and elsewhere for a solution, and I have tried to change about:config settings based on the recommendations I could find to no avail. I have also tried to refresh Firefox and have used Troubleshoot Mode, but those too have not worked. I have no clue as to what could have caused this, as I have not been messing with any settings prior to this.

Since approximately July 2023, Firefox gives me a beachball and pauses for about 10 seconds whenever I change between it and another app, or between one Firefox window and another. The same behavior does not occur with other browsers, likewise whether my connection is WiFi or wired.

I have No Proxy set in Network Settings. I am running a 2021 M1 Max Macbook Pro on Ventura 13.5.2.

I would appreciate any advice on how to troubleshoot and fix. Thanks.

Is there a setting or add-on for firefox (Windows) that will block tracking pixels? My email client hi-lites when present and as I understand they are incorporated within images so I dont down load attached images to reduce them. On their pro version they allow blocking of these pixels. Unlike cookies there doesn't seem to be an option on reception to opt out. I'm not fully clear what harm they do or whether they are session use only and delete on power off. I would rather not recieve them atall. Companies when challenged smokescreen and refer to cookies rather than pixels or bang on about their companys integrity.

Thanks for your help

Hey,

I've been having an odd issue with Firefox where tabs where I attempt to access youtube.com will immediately crash. This issue first arose when I attempted to log in to Youtube, and had never occurred before. When I did that login, the tab crashed, and I have been unable to access the website since (100% crash rate).

Basic details: The website does not visually load at all. However, the URL bar icons for the website do briefly appear prior to tab crash. (Autoplay button, etc). The crash is never reported in about:crashes.

I've tried the following tests, unsuccessfully: - Logging out of all Google accounts separately - Disabling all extensions - Transferring all of my data to a new computer - Reinstalling Firefox - Rebooting Firefox in troubleshooting mode

This problem does not occur on my Windows machine but occurred on my previous intel-based Mac and now on my current Apple Silicon Mac.

The only success I have had is in creating an entirely new Firefox profile. However, I would prefer to fix the issue, as I assume that porting all my settings to the new profile would... also probably bring the bug along.

Thanks for reading & any advice is appreciated.

Dark Reader works for all sites except for mozilla.org, I think these webpages are over-ridden by the Firefox browser? I saw a couple archived posts recommending global changes for all sites via Firefox -> Settings -> Language and Appearance -> Colors, or to install themes. Neither option would work. I don't want to override all sites to dark globally, that's way to much change, just let Dark Reader change just mozilla.org.

Firefox freezes when handling tabs

Hello everyone. Since installing Linux Mint in May 2023 I have been having this issue with Firefox.

Description of issue: When I switch between (or drag) tabs in a Firefox window, the whole window becomes unresponsive, with the last tab I was switching from still in front. Often the contents of the window start to flash (disappear and reappear, leaving a black backgground) every 2 seconds. I can drag the window around, scroll, minimize it, but it is impossible to give any input in any tab. The only action somewhat possible to do inside the window is bring other tabs in front, it is still quite hard for the input to register, and if it does, it takes 10+ seconds. The issue goes away if I close the specific Firefox window, or if I manage to select and drag one tab out of the frozen window into its own new window. Then everything works as intended, like nothing ever happened.

I can reliably cause the freeze-up in a short time by holding CTRL+TAB and drag one tab to change the order while firefox cycles through the tabs in the open window.

While the window is frozen, the rest of the desktop is responsive as normal, even other Firefox windows. If I try to interact with the frozen window I can rarely see spikes of CPU usage. RAM stays at normal usage levels, far from being full.

What I have tried so far that has had no effect on the appearance of the issue:

1) Disabling all extensions i have

2) Run in troubleshooting mode

2) "Create a new places database" as suggested [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding#w_fi...]

3) Disabled hardware acceleration

4) Creaing a new firefox user profile

5) Use "Refresh Firefox" from the troubleshooting page

6) Use the Flatpak version of firefox

7) Reinstall firefox

Here is my system information

Outlook displays the "To:" and "Add a subject" labels in black/grey text, but the rest of the "New Mail" window is white. There are no visible border lines between the "To" line and the "Subject" line. And no visible border between Subject and the email body.

The side-effect is an elderly person writes their entire email into the subject line field because it is not obvious where the email body starts.

I've seen this behavior on 2 different computers running the same (latest 120.0.1) Firefox. Odd thing is that I DO see borders when I run Outlook.com on my work laptop (same Firefox version). What config settings might control behavior like this?

I captured screenshots of the desired display of borders on my laptop. Tried .jpg, .png and .bmp. All of the files showed the borders between To, Subject and email body. But when those files are transferred to the PC I am on, the borders no longer display. Bizarre. I uploaded/download the files using Onedrive to ensure that the corporate email server was not touching the files. Even then the borders that exist in the files on the laptop do not display when those same files are viewed on my home PC.

I am using the latest Firefox version.
