Hi

Firefox 109.0.1 (64-bit) Mac Ventura 13.1

Google search page and a lot of sites (not all for example this support page) are having trouble rendering fonts.

I have attached screenshots which demonstrates the problem. The thing I do not understand if I go to the developer tools and alter the "font-family" from "font-family:Ariel, Sans-serif" to just "font-family:Sans-serif" bingo the font renders, the screenshots show this.

Other browsers like Chrome are having no difficulties.

There must be something simple I am missing, I have done a search but nothing is standing out as a solution.

Help would be appreciated. Cheers

I have tried watching videos through chrome and other browsers by searching something via duck duck go and watching that video on duck duck go, and it works on other browser so it must be specific to firefox.

Whenever I try to watch a video, in the drop down bar firefox select to mute audio for some reason. I then select 'allow audio and video' and refresh the page but the video is still muted for some reason. This also happens when I try to use other video sites. This has only started to happen recently in the past two days (and yes I am updated to the latest version of firefox).

We have our downloads set to a network location, and ask to save in location. We have needed to apply the fix I found in a forum by going to about:config, browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel and change value from true to false.

However, when even going to a PDF on the internet, it is automatically saving to the network location. Can this be changed?

Thank you! Nicole

Hi All. Love FF but there's one thing that's driving me crazy... the different color of the Library window (see screen grab). The main window is this nice dark "cool gray" color, but the library window is this greenish color.

Is there a way to change that? I've had the userChrome.css file installed and feel fairly comfortable making code edits.

Thanks in advance.

Is there any way for me to recover those bookmarks without having them deleted by reseting the password??

Thank you!

Good evening Community,

I have a prolem with my firefox browser since about 3 weeks. So I hope somebody around here can help me with that. Somehow it occurred that HTML5 videos need very long to load. Sometimes it even shows me the message that I should restart the browser. I really cant find the problem. I have the newest version: 109.0.1 (64-Bit) I deletet the cache. I also didnt install any Plugins or addons. Since the problem occured.

I tried other Browsers on my Computer and it works just fine. By the way I also have a pretty new Computer, the specs are fine.

The only thing I didnt try, is to reinstall Firefox. Because i have a couple of tasks opened which I dont want to lose or put in booksmarks. But that also cant be the problem. Because I always had around 10-20 tasks opened in the past.

I hope somebody can help me or had the same problem and knows how to fix it.

Sorry for my bad englisch.

Nice regards. BS

I signed in to my account on my desktop today just as I have for years. I was asked to verify it was me. You sent me a code. I could not figure out where I was supposed to enter that code. I saw no instructions where to type it in and I could not see any space to enter the code into. Now I am locked out. I have been on firefox for years. I am 76 years old now, a recent stroke victim, and this is very confusing to me. Can you make this simpler? Please explain where I need to type in the code you send and let me try again. Please reply. This is stressing me up. It all started today when I tried to add this account to a new iphone my kids got for me. I have only used android phones on my firefox account. I won't try to add firefox to the iphone again. iphones seem to be complicated enough as it is. I can use it on Microsoft I hope. but I still need firefox to continue working on my android desktop. Firefox has all my passwords for other apps stored on it. As well as the saved favorite websites I have placed on there over the years. Many, Many of them. I am used to having the firefox saved password function to quickly log me in to those applications . Please help me get it back up and running. please email me the solution to [email removed from public] William C

I would like to transfer my bookmarks (and my open tabs) from my Windows 10 laptop to a new Windows 11 laptop. I've looked at the questions and answers people have posted but its a complete mystery to me. I had thought that when I loaded Firefox onto the new PC and signed in, everything would automatically appear. I was successful in doing that with Chrome but Firefox is still my primary browser and I've had no luck. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I use a search bar in Firefox's toolbar for searching and my defauly search engine is Google. When I type on this, sometimes I get search suggestions that I never searched for (and I am not using a shared computer). For example when I type "how do you" in the bar, I get suggestions like "how do you ne demek" ("what does how do you do mean" in Turkish) as in the attached picture. I have never searched for these queries, yet they appear with a history icon next to them, implying I have searched for them. Why is this happening?

I've tried using the same bar with something other than Google as the active search engine (Mozilla Support for example), and when I type "how do you", none of these false suggestions appear; and only what I have actually searched for in the past appears. Furthermore, when I type in "ne demek" like in the suggestion, I *also* don't get the same suggestion.

So there's something wrong with how Firefox relays data from Google's suggestions. In fact, I use neither Firefox nor Google in Turkish and yet keep getting geolocation-matched suggestions in Turkish like this, sometimes with and sometimes without the history icon; which did not use to happen a few years ago. Is this a personal problem I can fix somehow, or is this a general bug?

The default browser behavior when I click on a link on a page is to open a pop up window in the current tab. In these cases I'm clicking a link on the pg to my social media account in order to publish a new post linking to my own content.

The new unwanted behavior on clicking the link is for it to open my social media account in a new tab. I want clicking that link to open a pop up of my social media account in the current tab. Is there any about:config setting controlling this, which I can change?

Hi All my icons changed to a globe image yesterday. I don't know why. However, I discovered that if I opened a bookmark, the correct icon reappeared. With 30 bookmarks to work on, this seemed like a lot of time, BUT your can "Open All Bookmarks in Tabs" and if you wait long enough, all your icons will be restored to those which the websites supply.

I recently transferred to Linux operating system, and when I login to firefox, and press sync, my saved logins aren't there. I've tried to log out then log back in, restarted the app several times, but won't show anything!

Before I transferred to Linux I was using Windows, and I made sure that the sync worked before transferring, so I tested the sync on a portable version of Firefox, and I was successful in syncing my saved logins.

But now it doesn't work, and I cannot see any of my passwords or logins, there is only 1 saved login which is locally stored, which was there before I logged into my account on Firefox.
