So, whenever I open Firefox it will act normally and then after a second close by itself and when I reopen it, it will be in remote mode. I know how to fix this via about:config and do this every time, but I would much prefer a permanent fix, nothing else on Firefox or my computer indicates something else is going on, its just this. I've even at one point uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it didn't help.

other menus like the pop-up bookmark list menu is fine. i only have this problem with the download menu and the bookmarking menu. i only remember this happening after i started to tweak and customize my windows 11 os, so maybe something in that process happened to break the text now but i have no idea where to look. i have cleared the startup cache, refreshed firefox and even uninstall/reinstalled it completely fresh (this is also what made me believe this is an os problem).

I am a UK user and have just installed and started to use Firefox on a brand new Linux Mint installation. As I am transferring from a Windows/Chrome environment, there is a lot of setting up to do. Firefox transferred most of the chrome info for me, and so I was able to get up and running with bookmarks and logins quite quickly. However, there is one problem that I can't seem to resolve.

I have been able to set up my credit card details, and these are prompted when needed, BUT, Firefox will not remember my name, email, phone or address. Thus for every form that I have to fill, I have to enter these details, again and again (and again).

I have looked at settings and see that the 'Autofill Address' option is not present (see attachment).

I have followed and implemented the fix proposed elsewhere, to update/add GB as an address format. This has not made a difference.

Can anyone please help.

Regards,

Mark

Firefox is displaying a smaller font on some websites. It only does it new windows, not in a private window and other browsers are fine.

Screenshots attached show the correct size (first attachment) and the incorrect smaller size (second attachment).

It's not windows accessibility aka ease of access, as nothing else is affected. All pages are on 100% zoom. I've gone to settings -> font -> advanced and the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" is ticked.

Any ideas please?

For a while now (can't remember when it started) rendered graphics and text on FF is fuzzy. Examples of this can be see on Google maps, Miro, Powerpoint etc. On Chrome, Edge etc the rendering is sharp at all zoom levels but in FF its fuzzy until you zoom in.

Viewing on a 4k monitor, running 115.0.2 (64-bit), using the Windows store install Hardware acceleration is turned on. Tested on multiple PCs, all Windows 11

Whenever I type something in the URL bar that starts with the word "amazon," instead of getting a Google search for what I typed, I get redirected to Amazon.com with whatever I typed as a product search. For example, if I type "amazon sucks" in Firefox's URL bar, instead of getting a Google search for the phrase "amazon sucks," I get an Amazon page with the word "sucks" pre-filled in Amazon's product search (and a screen full of socks).

I don't have a search keyword for "amazon" in my Firefox settings. As far as I can tell, no other magic word does the same thing. (For example, if I type "yahoo sucks" or "walmart sucks," I get the desired Google searches. I don't get redirected to a Yahoo or Walmart page.

How do I turn this behavior off?

Hello, my WIN 10 Drive got busted, meaning I can not boot with it anymore. However, with an other WIN10 drive I still can access the data. I need to save all the Firefox bookmarks before I will format the Drive and install a fresh WIN10. All the searches just tell how to backup when Firefox is open or Win is running: Press WIN Key... etc. None of them is applicable. I have I have bookmarks saved as bookmarks as well as I have a lot on the upper bar. I need them all.

Please teach me how I can back them up and restore on a fresh Firefox. In previous crashes I lost a lot of bookmarks already. ' Thank you.

The only icons I can see on the right hand side of my toolbar is the NoScript icon, along with the Save to Pocket, FF Account, Extensions and hamburger buttons.

I should have about 12.

I just installed a new system, launched FF and set it up to sync with my account. Everything else appears to run fine - passwords, history, etc. The Tree Style Tab works fine too.

I have double checked the other solutions I found here, such as private viewing options, or trying to find the icons in the customize screen, but that's not the issue.

My other FF instances on other machines are still fine.

I just updated FF on this problem machine to 115.0.2 but no joy.

I subscribe to The Times (UK) and use many of their different portals. I am, however, experiencing a really odd problem. For the last three Mondays in a row when I hover over a link it shows one destination which is now three weeks out of date and downloads same when clicked. When I Inspect(Q) the relevant bit of script it shows the correct page for the current week. All other links from the current edition work as expected. The link works correctly on other days of the week. The IT support at The Times have no idea why this is happening and have simply asked me to do stupid things like clearing all cache and cookies relevant to their site. this has no effect whatsoever!

How can this happen and have you any help on the subject?

I like when I open a bookmark, that I am not forced to view it right away. This can be VERY annoying when opening multiple bookmarks but I want to stay on my current one without having to switch back to the one I was using. I would like an option added at least to have bookmarks in that automatically switch to when opening. Please.

Firstly, I have a brain injury. I am easily overwhelmed by information and am slow to understand - especially anything to do with I.T.

Recently, I began successfully accessing the internet / Firefox via my Wifi Repeater. As of two or three days ago. I keep being asked to "log in to access the Internet", but even after I do it (successfully, as far as my repeater is concerned) I'm no further forward; I keep being asked to log in.

Thanks to my repeater I have a strong signal when in my garden office. But after a month, Firefox has suddenly stopped allowing me to use it. I am back at Square 1, before I purchased the thing.

I need need to work from my office. Please help resume my Repeater's access.

Kind regards,

Sean
