Hi, I am setting up a laptop for my wife to replace her old one. I have installed Firefox and found that although the main body text is the correct size, the text on the toolbars is very small compared to her old one. How can I increase the toolbar font size without altering the main body. Thank you, Andrew

After installing the DRM content through the browser I still cannot play any videos on Netflix or Udemy.

I have run this website (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/sumo/html5-video.html) from previous answers to check and the results are attached to the question.

I have also checked media.eme.enabled and it is set to true.

I am very much puzzled by this.

I cannot get Firefox to stop using dark mode. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, checking my Mac's settings (dark mode is not enabled), and Firefox still shows dark mode in webpages (like Google News). It makes it really hard to read the page without reading glasses.

Is there a way to turn this off? It is really irritating.

Been having this issue for the last few weeks where Firefox just won't load YouTube properly. In particular, livestreams won't play, chat always show as "disconnected from chat" and I can't even access the profile menu (clicking on my profile pic on the top left just shows a loading icon forever).

Tried the following without any luck: 1. Safemode 2. Clearing all cache 3. Refresh firefox (When I first did a refresh, it started working again, then I went to sleep and the next morning the same problem is back again)

Any help would be much appreciated.

I should not have to ask this, but somehow this essential feature has been removed *again*. How in the world do we view the URLs of links in Windows 10 now? The status bar has been totally disappeared, and although there are a number of add-ons, so many of them are about other kinds of status, or only show the URL in limited circumstances, that I'm having trouble figuring out which ones offer the basic view-URL-on-hover. Does anyone have recommendations?

Even better, who can explain why it's a good idea to make it hard for users to see this absolutely vital information? If security is important then it's important to make it easy for users to see where links go before clicking on them. Full stop. And even if the web were somehow magically totally safe, people don't want to waste their time and bandwidth playing guessing games. We want to know what something is before we bother to open it up. Why is that so very hard to understand?????

I'm running Ubuntu 20.10 with GNOME Shell extension Unite which can add the minimize, maximize and close buttons to the top bar and remove the buttons from the title bar of apps. The does not work in Firefox, minimize, maximize & close remain. I'm assuming this is related to Firefox's ability to remove the title bar all together so tabs can be at the top. The Firefox Customize... page allows you to change just about everything else in the UI except these three buttons.

Is there a way to remove Firefox's minimize, maximize and close buttons?

In case it matters I really only care about the Close button (not Close tab) because GNOME Tweaks lets you remove the minimize & maximize buttons from all apps.

Thanks

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

Yesterday I got a new Mac, running macOS Big Sur (11.1). Previously I was using Mojave (10.14.6). Now on Firefox a lot of pages fail to load -- they show a blank page. Among them:

https://web.whatsapp.com/ https://open.spotify.com/ https://www.nytimes.com/puzzles/spelling-bee Citibank (after the login)

Some of these pages do open in a Private window. However, I already cleared all my cookies and cache contents, and I still cannot load thes pages in a normal window.

Can you suggest what I need to do? Thanks!

ADD: When trying to login at https://profile.theguardian.com/signin, at first I got an error message saying to "make sure that Javascript is enabled". But now it just goes through, except that the site doesn't know that I logged in. And again, in a private window I am able to log in.

It looks like I should just do all my work in a private window now, which seems strange

For some reason embedded videos on sites like the Washington Post and the New York Times no longer play in Firefox. I can click the triangular "play" icon and I see the spinning circle as if the video is loading but that never goes away and the window stays black. YouTube videos still play and I can still play videos on Netflix. If I load the same page in the Edge browser, the video plays fine. When I search Firefox Support all the help for video playback problems are old and don't apply to my situation (again, this used to work without issue). I'm running the latest version of FIrefox with Autoplay set to "Allow Ausio and Video" on WIndows 10.0.18363. Any ideas?

I just came back to Firefox after about 2 months, as Microsoft crushed my OS with their fall feature update. I could not get many items running, and just had to start from scratch.

That being said, I surely do not recall that every time I clicked a link, it would open in a new tab. I mean, every single time. Who ever thought that was a good idea.

Anyone have a clue as to what's happening here? I usually only want a new tab to open when either I choose it as a right-click option, or when builders have invested it specifically in their code, as they know it will navigate away from their site, etc...

I would be most thankful to get this baby back running like normal. Your help is appreciated!

Btw, fresh windows 10 install. The only extensions I have running are adblock, lastpass, blur, downloadthemall and new tab homepage (which just let's me determine the page address.)

This is driving me a bit mad...

A while ago the spellcheck in FF just stopped working. I literally only have a single add blocker installed that I've always used. I've not made any system changes lately beyond installing a few games.

- I have the "check spelling as you type" box checked in the browser options. - I have the English language pack installed from here (The British pack installed currently) - I've opened about:congif in the browser itself and made sure the value for layout.spellcheckDefault is set to 1.

It doesn't work on any site.

Chrome is working fine, but I prefer to use FF.

- I've tried reinstalling. - I've tried unchecking and rechcking the box.

Any ideas where what I should try next?

Any help really appreciated!

Hi @ all,

our website https://ana-dismissed.de/ is not loading in Firefox, or to be more precise it is loading often but on occasionally not reloading when refreshed. This only happens in Firefox, Safari and other Chrome-based Browsers don't show this, perfectly working there (as far as I could check).

I already checked Firefox developer tools, like console or resource loadings etc. There is no issue I can find. I'm completely lost, no hint at all, why this happens in Firefox only.

Please find a short video here: https://imgur.com/a/31XyiMi

I'm thankful for every hint into the right direction.

Best regards!
