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.

As of recently, every time I try to watch someone on Twitch, where the video feed would normally be is the streamer's offline banner image. Chat is working fine, and is active despite the stream not being displayed on my end. If I check the Twitch mobile app the stream displays as normal, so I know they are currently streaming. I tried disabling all of my add-ons and restarting the browser to no avail. I am a noob, so please be patient with me. I have attached images of an example, but this happens with any live channel, not just ones I am following (I do not have any active subscriptions as far as I know).

I have noticed a bug with how the Firefox icon appears when launched in the Windows 11 taskbar when the never group option is enabled. When Firefox is launched and is the only application open in the taskbar, there is no label present next to the icon like other programs have when launched. There is the little line underneath the icon though indicating it is launched but that is it. As soon as I open another application though, the label will also appear for Firefox. This is only a minor annoyance but is definitely as bug at least for me and should be pretty easy to fix. I will attach screenshots of the behavior. In the first screenshot, you can see that Firefox is open but has no Text label like it is supposed to. The second screenshot is as soon as I open a second application.

I am on Windows 11 Home 23H2 Build 22631.2792 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22681.1000.0 Firefox Version: 120.0.1

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

For some reason Montserrat fonts ignore font-weight for me on all websites. In happens on my main browser profile, with a new clean one with no add-ons and even in Tor Browser. Pictures 1 and 2 illustrate the problem. If i go into page inspector and replace "font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif;" with "font-family: 'Segoe UI';" the parameter works as expected and the alternative font is rendered properly.

Reinstalling fonts from fontsource.org didn't help.

OS: Windows 10 1607, FF - 120.0, issue was present for many versions before.

I have been using Simple Tab Groups (STG) for a long time now. I am curious if putting tabs into groups saves any resources, i.e. is only the open group using resources (CUP/RAM), or is STG purely organizational in that all the tabs still use the same amount of resources as if they weren't grouped? If it is the latter, do you know of an add-on that would save resources? Thanks

Hello, I always use Firefox logged into my Mozilla account.

Yesterday I went to a (legitimate) site, that I had never visited before and only read one page. I didn't click on anything on that site/page, I only read that one page and left the site. Not long afterwards, I received a promotional email from that site stating "Thanks for stopping by!".

My question is: how did they know my email (the email used by my Mozilla account)? I have never received emails from that site, and as I said, I never visited it until then.

Does Firefox expose the Mozilla account email when visiting sites? This is pretty troubling. I would appreciate any input you have. Thanks

Hello, the description is the same as in the title: Firefox is slowing down significantly while I have "more" demanding games running I'm talking about a game like assassin's creed mirage mostly on ultra for example.

It all started with the purchase of a new computer, on the previous one I did not encounter such a problem. It manifests itself in the way that the video is slightly desynchronized with the sound + I can see a significant difference (delay) when scrolling the pages.

My current rig: Intel Core i7-14700KF Nvidia RTX 4080 32GB of ram running at 6000mhz (G Skill Intl F5-7200J3445G162x16GB ) 2x Kingston SKC3000D2048G 2TB


I understand that the GPU focuses on the game but can't it be improved somehow? The rest of the applications on the computer work normally In my opinion, the computer does not seem so weak that it cannot handle Firefox and the game simultaneously.

Send help please 😊

Firefox use to keep me logged into Asana. But after deleting my browser cache a while back, it no longer does. Even though it still keeps me logged in to other sites I go to.

I have already tried to get help with this on Asana's help forum and a computer help group on FB. As well as from researching on google. I have tried everything they told me to do and it still isn't keeping me logged into Asana. I am completely baffled as to what it stopped keeping logged in. But I know it had to do with deleting my cache because it did it right after that when I tried to log back into Asana. It never kept me logged in again.

When I deleted my browser cache I made sure to not check the one that said it would log me out of website if I check it. I didn't delete that, I just deleted the other stuff that was in the gb range. So I don't know why every time I delete my cache it still logs me out of all website anyway even though I uncheck that.

Yesterday I reset firefox back to its default settings, but that didn't help either.

Any ideas what else I could try before I uninstall firefox and reinstall it. I have backed up my bookmarks, but the last time I had to import my bookmarks when I got a new computer it did not import them correctly and it made a mess out of my bookmarks and didn't even save my browser toolbar stuff. So reinstalling Firefox is my last option.

Everytime I go to play games on my laptop I close Firefox for the extra resources and when I'm done I open it right back up, I have done this for YEARS but this time it didn't restore my session. I thought it would be as easy as the last time where I'd go click the Restore Session button but it isn't there so I spend two hours looking for solutions and found nothing. I don't know how this happened nor do I understand how this could happen in the first place, my Firefox hasn't crashed in months and I had already closed and re-opened it several time today.

So I just picked up a new laptop (ASUS Vivobook 16x), and everything is fresh on it. Additionally, this only affects some video content in Firefox, with Edge browser unaffected. In brief, what is happening is that within a couple hours of having the browser open, certain video content stops working, specifically Twitter/X videos just spin, YouTube previews stop working, and videos continually load. Netflix videos continue to work, but hover previews stop functioning. I even check the 'Stats for Nerds' on YT and it shows 0 KB network activity in Firefox.

I've tried every basic action I can think of:

  • Turning off extensions (only use Ublock and Bitwarden)
  • Browser Refresh (x3)
  • Reverting from 120.1 to 120.0, and now 199.0.1
  • Clearing the browser cache
  • Reinstalling NVidia and Intel Drivers
  • Running in Safe Mode

Only by doing a refresh or completely closing/opening the app gets videos to function again. This doesn't affect the old laptop or my desktop, which makes me think it's a rogue driver--but then why would Edge function without error over the same period of time?

Are there any settings to play with in the browser that can help diagnose?

I am trying to move the find bar to the top of firefox. Tried the really long codes suggested, and the short ones. Yes, I enabled "true" in the config settings. Added the chrome folder and text file, I think in the right section. Restarted firefox lots of times upon each code I tried, still not working.

Any ideas? thanks!

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.
