I've been having trouble for a couple of months with Firefox. It's on both my desktop and my laptop with both Firefox and Firefox Developer. It seems to happen at random, but instead of being able to see words, all I can see is symbols like these (attached). If I copy/paste it into a word doc or a text file, I can read it just fine. It's only in the browser that I experience these issues.

Has anyone else had these issues? Is there an easy fix that I'm just not seeing?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Hi, on my MAC M1 (ARM Processor) I have firefox installed. The browser freezes every time I put the computer into sleep mode or when I use the lock screen or simply when I restart the system. Once I have re-logged in to my MAC, the firefox window reopens but all the tabs are locked. So, the only solution is to close the window and reopen a new window. How can I fix it? Thanks

Hello,

I am using Firefox 85.0 on OSX 10.14.6. Both Firefox Dev Tools and OSX are set to Dark Mode. However the menubar on the Developer Tools pop-out window (separate window view) is showing light grey. Please see attached image which shows the menu bar colour.

Is there any way I can change this to match the dark theme of my system?

This may seem petty, but I use the pop-out console a lot in my workflow and the bright coloured bar is bothering me! I have just switched over from Chrome which correctly matches the menubar to the system theme.

Thanks for your help.

Hi ,

I am happy that now I can use Firefox with fillable /saveable pdf files most of the time. Unfortunately sometime I have a problem if later I open the pdf with other software: I filled the first 3 line of https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/cra-arc/formspubs/pbg/t3ret/t3ret-fill-20e.pdf and when I saved it and reopened with Microsoft Edge and Xodo some number are missing in the field "Trust account number". I refuse to use Acrobat Reader. Then I can not change the type of fonts or put bold. Could you please fix it?

Have a nice day

Background

I have recently made a modification to my Firefox profile folder to allow the New Tab page to have a background image, but now I am noticing some strange behavior.

When first running Firefox it looks like this.

As you can see, for the sites that don't have a high-quality favicon available, Firefox uses a letter and the low-quality favicon. What I'm pointing out here is that the background for these is transparent.

However, when I open some sites and navigate around, I come back to see this.

There is now no visible letter and the background color for these icons have changed to white. I cannot seem to reproduce this, it just eventually happens after regular use.

This can be fixed by closing the browser and reopening it, but obviously, that's an inconvenience.

Question

Is there a way I can force the icon backgrounds to be transparent, or at least change the solid color to something more fitting to the theme? If possible, please let me know if there is a reason this is happening.

Note: I would rather not resort to setting a custom thumbnail for each of these because I like the way Firefox handles it by default. I'm just looking to fix the "ugly" white background that comes out of nowhere.

This is super annoying. Apologies in advance. Brand New computer. Do not have access to old desktop presently. Did not export. Not an ideal situation. Downloaded & signed into my FireFox account & can not find my former computers' Bookmarks. Anywhere. Everything else (add-ons) loaded fine & am able to continue but for some reason FF erased everything. I've spent 4 hours reading through countless suggestions to no avail. Why a major company like this doesn't have 24 hour support is beyond me. Ha.

If anyone can help me locate yesterdays (literally) Bookmarks & everything else I'm missing from my FF profile, I would be grateful. Sounds like this is an ongoing issue. Been running FF since 2016. They have to exist somewhere.

Hi. It's really annoying now. How can I disable autosaving "top sites"? I randomly visit 5 websites (FOR THE FIRST TIME) and 3 of them already shows up in my top sites. How the hell this stupid calculating works when I visit a website for the first time and firefox already thinks that it is a top site?! What the hell... Everyday I spend 20 minutes of deleting/unpinning those sites because I don't give a sh*t about them. And there's no option to turn it off. You can turn off the whole top site section but that's not what I want. I just want to disable autosaving or autopinning random sites. Where and how can I do it?! If it isn't possible then I'm done with Firefox.

To avoid neck strain, I have my browser window set to fill only the lower part of my screen - not maximized.

When I open regular FF, it opens the window to the desired size & position. But when I then open a private window, it opens in the right size, but at the top of the screen, and I have to move it down every time - which strains my neck. Is there any setting I can change so that the private window will open in the same size & position as the regular window?

(Not sure if this is a Firefox issue or a Windows issue, but I also have the Brave browser, and that opens a private window in the same position as the regular window, so it seems likely a FF issue.)

I am having an issue saving images from pixiv.net that just began today. This does not occur on other websites (tested imgur, twitter, wikipedia)

Steps to reproduce: - Open an artwork on Pixiv, e.g. https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/87320989 - Drag and drop the image to an Windows Explorer window Expected behavior: - Image 87320989_p0_master1200.jpg, 874kb, is saved Actual behavior: - Image 87320989_p0_master1200.jpg, 146bytes, is saved Contents of the "jpg" when opened in notepad are:

<html>
<head><title>403 Forbidden</title></head>
<body>
<center><h1>403 Forbidden</h1></center>
<hr><center>nginx</center>
</body>
</html>

This also occurs with right click on image>Copy Image and pasting into Windows Explorer. Curiously enough, right click on image>Copy Image then pasting into Microsoft Paint shows the image data. Image saves correctly with right click on image>Save Image As. Image saves correctly with right click on image>View Image, then Ctrl+S.

Firefox doesn't appear to try and save the cached image I have open, and I think it's sending another request missing a referrer which causes the 403.

Steps tried: - Safe Mode with all add-ons disabled: failure - Private browsing window: failure - New profile: failure - Refresh new profile: failure - Run Firefox as Admin: failure - Logging in/out of Pixiv: failure - Clear cookies/cache: failure

Windows 10 Home, 64-bit, 20H2, 19042.746

I got emailed a password reset link from a third-party website but I keep getting told my new password is too long, even when I create one with two keystrokes.

I suspect the problem may be Firefox remembered the old password and is reinserting it. I've gone to settings and disabled Save Logins and Passwords but the problem persists.
