On Youtube, there is a read more option for every comment that is not typed in English, or any other Anglo/Cyrillic/Latin language really, but the issue does not appear on Microsoft Edge nor any other browser so I'm wondering if there a fix to this as I can't tell which one actually has a read more and which ones are just a bug. Can you please tell me what is causing this and how to fix it? thanks.

I've tried to search and found some other posts about this, but not a ton... leading me to believe there is something wrong.

Issue: Fonts on some sites are too heavy/bold (vs appearing correctly on Chrome/Chromium browsers) Environment: Windows 10 or 11, Firefox stable (currently 105.0.1) Example site: https://www.subaruoutback.org (this is not the only one, just an example) Workaround(s): I can do one of two things... I can either enforce browser fonts globally, which fixes the issue but then also break some sites in other ways or I can use an add-on to let me selectively enforce browser fonts as needed (which is what I am doing).

Screenshots attached, this is my experience on multiple PCs (Windows 10 and 11). One image is from Firefox, one is from Chrome.

On some sites, it isn't a huge deal... maybe just looks bad but is functionally fine. On some sites the issue is more impactful and actually creates readability issues.

Of course I can continue to work around the issue, but ideally I would like to fix it.

I did read that there are some changes site owners can make for font handling, but obviously requesting that sort of thing isn't realistic in a general sense.

Thank you!

I run my own DNS and its managed locally. And while I can move it back manually, I keep finding the setting changed. So I need to find out how I can get control of my machines, OR I have to yank FF from every machine at the house. What can I do to force the machines to use MY DNS and not bypass the security I have put in place.

Having to go to each machine and do this weekly is not a good idea.

When I tried to open hotmail in firefox today, it gives me a blank page. Yesterday I it was working fine and all the yesterdays before that. I have checked the privacy and security and put it in as an exception. I have checked to see if there was a certificate needed or if I could put it in as an exception, but Firefox says it has a certificate and no exception is needed. I've closed out of hotmail and opened it. I've closed out of Firefox and opened it. I've restarted my computer. None of these have worked. It is still a blank page. Please help.

It's kind of hard to describe aside from the title.

Only happens when I am using the drop down bookmarks toolbar. When I right-click on an item to bring up the menu, it flickers for an instant, then hides behind the bookmarks drop down menu. Ok, so I guess I could explain it a bit more.

But here's a video showing it more in detail. https://www.loom.com/share/a166451f9354463dbbb6d9faf57df315

I was trying to use the Private Mode with all the extensions disabled to see if that would solve the issue, but alas, it didn't help me isolate anything.

I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

I love Firefox and usually work with a well organized set of about 40 tabs that are pinned for easy access. Occasionally i will open a page in "new window" so that I can make better use of multiple screens. If I inadvertently or quickly close the window with all my pinned tabs first, and then close the singular "new" window, all my tabs are gone. and of course the open previous or recently closed window only opens the on with no tabs. Is it possible to save the all tabs, or a "master" or "default" window?

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

repost from there, here its probably more appropriate: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1391582 In the meantime I figured out that sent tabs apparently only remain on the server for 60 days and that there is probably no log, even offline. But no definitive answer. And my feature request still remains for a history of sent tabs.

Dear Mozilla Team,

during the recent weeks I was away from my main PC and primarily used my iphone to browse the web. Every now and then I sent a link to the PC using Safari's share and the integrated send to function of Firefox for iOS. This usually worked really well, even when my PC was powered off. When I got back home and started my PC, sync would take forever, but was then interupted and all further tries to sync (hoping to get those tabs eventually) failed.

My question is if there is a log file of all those links that are sent to different devices? I believe there has to be one given that Mozilla's servers are being used and tabs (usually) arrive on powered-off devices following a request to the server.

If there is, please tell me how to access it/send it to me. If there is not, please take this as a feature request (a sent links history being gathered locally as part of the wider Firefox profile maybe and as a viewable list of all shared tabs for all devices so that tabs can still be sent to single devices but also accessed from others, similar to how tabs can be accessed from all synced devices).

Using the latest version on my 5 y/o windows laptop (as of Sept 18th) and the laptop went totally black, the system could not be booted so I went to a PC repair shop. Technician said its problem is that the SSD is too old and a new laptop is recommended.

I use Firefox since day 1 of that laptop and after a long time I forgot the password. Now I have my new PC and need data from my old Firefox account (not this one), including bookmarks, passwords and read lists.

What to do???

From time to time i need to log into my ISP's website portal, yet from today which is since the update yesterday) it will not allow me to it has my log in details saved correctly, but when i try to log in the sit it says they are incorrect, which they are not.

At first I thought the issue was with my ISP's website, so I was on the phone to them and together we tried crhome and edge and the log ins worked just fine, but not with the Firefox browser.

So sadly either something you changed in that update seems to be messing with the log in on this site and possibly others or possibly one of the add ons I use with it together with the browser is now causing an issue and is interferring I wouldn't have the first clue.

Hi all,

On 19 Sept 2022, upon booting my Macbook Pro, Acronis popped up a message to advise that Firefox was infected with ransomware. It listed the files and asked if I wanted to delete or quarantine the files. I elected to quarantine them so that I could investigate the claim/issue. Acronis reported that the files were now quarantined. From that point on, I could not launch Firefox. I deleted the app, and downloaded the latest FF from Mozilla and installed it. When I attempt to launch it, a popup states that I do not have the required permission to launch the app. (see image) I have checked Acronis and have taken a screen shot of the problem files (see image). In an effort to clear the Macbook Pro of any residual issues, I ran a full scan with CleanMyMac X MAS, and cleared all caches and redundant files. This ran and reported the job done and zero malware found. Kaspersky Total also reports no malware found. I downloaded the current Mac release of FF again and installed it, but still cannot launch it because I don’t have the relevant permissions. The app properties have been checked and as Admin, I have all relevant permissions. However I still cannot launch FF browser. Any advice/recommendations would be welcome, as Firefox is my main browser, after Safari.

Hello. I have an online bookstore that links through Amazon in order to allow my visitors to purchase my books. With my latest book entry (not the dozen others from the past) I am suddenly gettting this error message (SEE ATTACHED FILE) below about embedded links. Is there a way I can get a workaround? I am also sending this request to my hosting site (Squarespace) to see if they have a workaround.

10.4.22 Yesterday I had an encounter with a browser product called the wave which uses a logo deceptively similar to the swirling fox logo used for Firefox. However, it was green and upon closer inspection it was not a fox in the swirl. Perhaps coincidentally, and perhaps not, I was simultaneously unable to open Firefox, when I tried, I opened a Firefox browser template with no content, it could not be used and it could not be exited even using task manager and had to be closed by restarting my machine. Wave was not listed among my apps and hence could not be uninstalled so I simply deleted the files only to later learn, when Firefox continued to misbehave, that some wave files survived deletion. Upon deleting those I was able to use Firefox. These problems prompted me to find out where Firefox was installed and if the files were extant. This led to a discovery that Firefox was installed in 3 different locations, to-wit: (1) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox; (2) C: Users\Jeff\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox; (3) C:\windows\ProgramFiles\Mozilla Firefox. #1 ultimately was and is the one I was able to use. It was created 11.2.13 shortly after I bought the machine. #3 was created 10.3.22, modified 9.30.22 and accessed 10.3.22 and #2 was created, modified and accessed 10.3.22 and may have been the one I intentionally installed when I could not use Firefox. Perhaps installation #3 was your doing or perhaps Wave’s doing.

In the past you have expressed an interest in knowing about persons or entities who use your intellectual property (e.g. a registered trademark) without your knowledge. I cannot add images because I intentionally removed all of the wave software I could find. I opened "troubleshooting" through the help utility and selected "share data" but am not certain you will get it. Please advise if you need anything further from me. After the above I was and am now able to use Firefox.
