A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

FF has been my default for decades primarily because of superior print options. I use Custom Print option to print out pages in larger front, but this no longer seems to work in 92.01. At say 115 custom I lose text to right and bottom of page (both in preview and print to PDF).

Hello.

Current Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection-Standard Without the Free Adblock installed.

Goal: Minimize tracking and pop-up ads from appearing during my browser session:

Please answer each question separately:

Q1. Is the Standard option sufficient or should it be set to strict?

Answer:

Q2a. Does the Standard option OR the Strict option provide the features of an ad-block or does the free Adblock needs to be installed as well in order to receive full protection?

b. When I was about to install the Free Adblock, a warning came up asking me if it was the best adblocker and confirming that the extension would have permission to access my data from all websites, extend developer tools to access my data in open tabs, display notifications to me, access my browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation/

Do I really want to install Adblock knowing all of the above details?

All PCs are Windows 10 (64) Home or Pro

After FireFox updated to ver 93.0 (64 bit) the CenturyLink Webmail page fails to load properly (all I get is a blank screen). I know this is because of version 93.0 because the last PC I checked it on (My Windows 10 (64) laptop) still had FireFox 92.0.xx loaded and the webpage loaded fine, then the browser updated and the webmail page failed to load properly. The CenturyLink Webmail Page loads fine on Google Chrome and on Microsoft Edge.

Troubleshooting: In addition to the usual clearing browser data I even tried resetting FireFox on one of my PCs. It didn't help.

Centurylink tech support says there is nothing wrong with their Webmail and to use another browser.

I've attached a screen capture of what I see.

I am trying to open youtube.com but it gives a blank page with nothing on it and loading stops as well (see screenshot attached). The website works on Google Chrome browser, so I doubt that this is a website issue.

I have tried the following and none of these fixed the problem:

1. Clear cache and cookies 2. Restart firefox in Troubleshoot mode (still the same issue) 3. Disabled hardware acceleration did not fix it

I would appreciate any help to fix this.

FF seems to keep forgetting what I call "legitimate" cookies. For example:

  • For websites I use daily without a login, like Accuweather, every few days I get their "Accept our cookies?" messages.
  • For sites that allow an on-going login, I need to re-login frequently. Not daily, but certain not months later.
  • I have a financial site that allows me to set only certain devices may be recognized. Today it said a device I use weekly or so is no longer recognized.

There is an old thread that may be relevant: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1309877

But several issues: That thread is closed, even though this bug is still going. Also it only covers Windows and I could use help with Windows & iOS versions.

Could "Tracking Protection" level come into play? I had it set to Standard but noticed recently it was Strict. I think Firefox changed that, not me, but I can't be 100% positive. Meanwhile I changed it back to Standard but so far the issue remains.

Thank you,

Joe

I allow FF to save some passwords and some I do not want saved. The other day I was logging into a site where I do not want my password saved and FF filled in my user name and password. I didn't think I inadvertently saved it but it could happen. I checked the saved logins and it was there. I removed it. The next time I went to log in to that site FF again filled in my info. I went to the manage logins and it was not there, yet FF is still filling in the info. This is super annoying and inconvenient as I have multiple accounts for this site yet it wants to continue to use this one login. How do I get this issue fixed.

I am having a serious problem with inputting information into web page interfaces such as GMail and online forms.

I am seriously dyslexic, so, I have to depend on tools such as copy/paste and keyboard macros in my quest to avoid typos and incorrect information and amounts.

The best example that I have is using GMail's Web interface to compose and respond to emails where the problem has increased to the point where it happens on almost every input session. For example, if I use a keyboard macro to type my name "Beverly" it almost always gets scrambled to something like "Byeverl"

This happens on some, but not all web input pages... another example, is trying to enter a number into a field that simply does not work if I paste. Sometime back, I went so far to create an AutoHotKey macro that put's a delay between each character that is in the copy/paste buffer. That seemed to work for a while, but has since stopped working apparently because the interface now detects that I left the input field in order to trigger the keyboard macro.

Help, Beverly Howard

Hello Firefox. You have been my go-to browser for many years now. I am always using the latest version for Mac. About ten days ago, two of my four sites became blocked, with the "Secure Connection Failed" notice.

I am a low-income independent working artist who needs for people to have access to my sites. GoDaddy sees no issue on their end (all four of my sites are under the same deluxe hosting account with the exact same SSL encryption), and all four sites show up on Safari and Chrome. Until now, I have preferred Firefox.

https://www.alexalev.com/ https://www.paintedjay.com/

These are the results at Why No Padlock using the Firefox browser: https://www.whynopadlock.com/results/447e5a19-3baa-4374-ba79-a9829eeef737

According to Why No Padlock, everything is perfect.

To make matters screwier, none of my sites are e-commerce or take info from people. They present information and there are links off site to places like Amazon and Instagram, but there is nothing of a security issue on any of them, PLUS I have SSL encryption properly configured, anyway, no matter what, so that there would be no issue.

Please re-instate public access to my sites. I am sure this is a glitch of some kind. Nothing else explains it, but I need them to be LIVE ASAP, as I am trying desperately to make some kind of a living with the pandemic having cancelled all my shows. Thank you!

I have a certain add-in installed that Firefox sometimes says is "slowing things down" and recommends deactivating. Thing is, it's my password manager, so I absolutely never want to deactivate it, and am quite okay if it occasionally slows things down, and would like to tell Firefox to never suggest turning off this particular add-in, while still leaving that feature on for other add-ins I might care less about. Is there anyway off adding it to an "ignore it if this add-in slows things down a bit" list?
