On Youtube, there is a read more option for every comment that is not typed in English, or any other Anglo/Cyrillic/Latin language really, but the issue does not appear on Microsoft Edge nor any other browser so I'm wondering if there a fix to this as I can't tell which one actually has a read more and which ones are just a bug. Can you please tell me what is causing this and how to fix it? thanks.

I've tried to search and found some other posts about this, but not a ton... leading me to believe there is something wrong.

Issue: Fonts on some sites are too heavy/bold (vs appearing correctly on Chrome/Chromium browsers) Environment: Windows 10 or 11, Firefox stable (currently 105.0.1) Example site: https://www.subaruoutback.org (this is not the only one, just an example) Workaround(s): I can do one of two things... I can either enforce browser fonts globally, which fixes the issue but then also break some sites in other ways or I can use an add-on to let me selectively enforce browser fonts as needed (which is what I am doing).

Screenshots attached, this is my experience on multiple PCs (Windows 10 and 11). One image is from Firefox, one is from Chrome.

On some sites, it isn't a huge deal... maybe just looks bad but is functionally fine. On some sites the issue is more impactful and actually creates readability issues.

Of course I can continue to work around the issue, but ideally I would like to fix it.

I did read that there are some changes site owners can make for font handling, but obviously requesting that sort of thing isn't realistic in a general sense.

Thank you!

I run my own DNS and its managed locally. And while I can move it back manually, I keep finding the setting changed. So I need to find out how I can get control of my machines, OR I have to yank FF from every machine at the house. What can I do to force the machines to use MY DNS and not bypass the security I have put in place.

Having to go to each machine and do this weekly is not a good idea.

When I tried to open hotmail in firefox today, it gives me a blank page. Yesterday I it was working fine and all the yesterdays before that. I have checked the privacy and security and put it in as an exception. I have checked to see if there was a certificate needed or if I could put it in as an exception, but Firefox says it has a certificate and no exception is needed. I've closed out of hotmail and opened it. I've closed out of Firefox and opened it. I've restarted my computer. None of these have worked. It is still a blank page. Please help.

I used to open Google-related stuff like Gmail or YouTube in the Personal container using the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension. Recently, I've decided that I don't want to do it anymore. However, every time I try to load YouTube, it asks me "Open this site in your assigned Container?". Even when I say no and turn on the checkbox "Remember my decision", it still asks it every time.

Hello everyone

my default browser is Firefox. The service desk application will not open in Firefox only this type of email won't open (see Screenshot). When I receive emails and try to open them, it only displays a blank page and loads without success.

I always need to copy the link manually and open it in chrome.

What we did:

We tried several things such as

Deleting Firefox history, cache, cookies, etc. However, when doing this, the link works the first time but the following tries don't work, it just keeps loading infinitely (same behavior in a Private Window). Disabling all add-ons.

We have observed that the same links work as expected in Chrome and this behavior happens only with the links related to the customer issue view, other Jira links work normally.

I'm using the latest Firefox version such as Microsoft® Outlook® for Microsoft 365 MSO (Version 2207 Build 16.0.15427.20248) 64-bit

It's kind of hard to describe aside from the title.

Only happens when I am using the drop down bookmarks toolbar. When I right-click on an item to bring up the menu, it flickers for an instant, then hides behind the bookmarks drop down menu. Ok, so I guess I could explain it a bit more.

But here's a video showing it more in detail. https://www.loom.com/share/a166451f9354463dbbb6d9faf57df315

I was trying to use the Private Mode with all the extensions disabled to see if that would solve the issue, but alas, it didn't help me isolate anything.

HP 17" laptop with Windows 10, Firefox v105.0.1, MSN home page (have had it for years}: "Crash" or "Hang"?

When opening second or third tab (following news/magazine articles), I will get three or four "tops of a pages" and cannot exit. Mouse unresponsive. No error messages. Display will flicker during and after getting completely off of internet. Before this, display is fine. To get out, I go to my email tab and open a new tab then exit unresponsive tabs.

This all started a couple of days after a "another" Microsoft update. I uninstalled the last update but that did not help. I then searched for all available Microsoft updates and down loaded three of them.... no improvement to the issue. Ran PC Matic scan but no improvement. Several restarts during these actions.

I'm not a computer guy so any fix needs to be simple. Should I just uninstall Firefox and reinstall? I do have some add-ons but can't remember what they are. Will cross that bridge when necessary.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

I love Firefox and usually work with a well organized set of about 40 tabs that are pinned for easy access. Occasionally i will open a page in "new window" so that I can make better use of multiple screens. If I inadvertently or quickly close the window with all my pinned tabs first, and then close the singular "new" window, all my tabs are gone. and of course the open previous or recently closed window only opens the on with no tabs. Is it possible to save the all tabs, or a "master" or "default" window?

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

repost from there, here its probably more appropriate: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1391582 In the meantime I figured out that sent tabs apparently only remain on the server for 60 days and that there is probably no log, even offline. But no definitive answer. And my feature request still remains for a history of sent tabs.

Dear Mozilla Team,

during the recent weeks I was away from my main PC and primarily used my iphone to browse the web. Every now and then I sent a link to the PC using Safari's share and the integrated send to function of Firefox for iOS. This usually worked really well, even when my PC was powered off. When I got back home and started my PC, sync would take forever, but was then interupted and all further tries to sync (hoping to get those tabs eventually) failed.

My question is if there is a log file of all those links that are sent to different devices? I believe there has to be one given that Mozilla's servers are being used and tabs (usually) arrive on powered-off devices following a request to the server.

If there is, please tell me how to access it/send it to me. If there is not, please take this as a feature request (a sent links history being gathered locally as part of the wider Firefox profile maybe and as a viewable list of all shared tabs for all devices so that tabs can still be sent to single devices but also accessed from others, similar to how tabs can be accessed from all synced devices).
