Had this problem for a while. Didn't know how to describe the effect; Firefox renders PNGs as glitched tartan images => screen-caps attached. I'm running 90.0.2. I did a Firefox refresh - the problem still persists. Works fine on Chrome based browsers.

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

In the menu drop downs under 'Edit' and 'View' and 'History' there are items that are 'inactive' and cannot be selected.

I have changed the background colour and look of the Menu drop downs in my CSS file but am looking for a way to show the 'unselectable' items.

In the Edit menu it is: Redo , Cut, Copy, Delete and associated keyboard shortcuts that have black text. i need light grey.

In the View menu it is: Text Encoding that is black

In the History menu it is: Recently closed windows

Does anyone have the code required to make them look light grey even if not 'selectable'. I have all selectable items with white text as the drop down background colour is teal.

I would appreciate any help I can get.

      • Sincere apologies. Just found the answer !!! When I copied the link I picked up a space added to the link <}:-( Can't see how to delete my original question - only edit it ***

Up until now all my saved bit.ly links worked fine when I put in the short link: e.g. bit.ly/HfdSfGrd

But now with some I get: Something's wrong here.

This is a 404 error, which means you've clicked on a bad link or entered an invalid URL. Maybe what you are looking for can be found at Bitly.com. P.S. Bitly links are case sensitive.


Any suggestions as to what has gone wrong and the cure?

As the title says, almost all of my bookmarks have completely disappeared without any warning. I didn't update firefox, restart it, or anything. I have no idea why this happened, as firefox has been working perfectly all day long, and only after i left my computer for an hour or two, did i come back to the terrifying sight that all of my nearly 630 bookmarks have fully vanished into thin air.

Oddly enough, i still have one folder, and a few seemingly random bookmarks left over, as to where the rest of them went, i have no idea.

I've attempted to restart firefox, log out, log back in, disable extensions, and more. The first thing i tried was to use the restore option, however when i click it, it simply says "unable to process file". Out of all the backups available to me, including a nearly year and half old one from an Old Firefox Data folder i had on my desktop, none of them work.

I also checked underneath profiles, and i saw that i had one more profile than i should, however when using said profile, it has absolutely zero of the bookmarks, so that's a no go.

I really can't wrap my head around what could've caused this or how to rectify it, and im sort of panicking at the idea of years upon years of bookmarks just disappearing at the drop of a hat.

My only solace is that it appears my mobile (ios) firefox app appears to have all of the bookmarks still saved and accessible, but i can't find any way to transfer those bookmarks onto browser.

Any help would be enormously appreciated

Recently I've noticed when I try to load na.op.gg, the website displays very strangely when I try to load the website. It tells me to download the mobile app on desktop and everything is very stretched out. I assume the website is trying to fit everything to width and displaying ads for their mobile app because it thinks I'm on a mobile device.

About a day or two ago, random images stopped loading on sites I visit regularly.

I haven't changed anything on the browser. In fact, I disabled add-ons to see if it would fix the problem (it hasn't).

I'm already neurotic about deleting the cache and such after bold texteverybold text session every day.

It only occurs on Firefox desktop (90.0.2 64-bit); everything loads fine on mobile and on other desktop browsers.

On bootup yesterday, Firefox was a whole new animal?! 1) I had 12 or more pinned tabs which are now all not displayed/missing! 2) Had three rows thumbnail bookmarks displayed when Firefox opened which are not displayed/gone now! 3) Firefox would give a popup message that "Gah...tab (whatever), Reopen tab or Restart Firefox". This would typically occur late afternoon (FWIW, Eastern Standard Time). Only way to get Firefox to stay open was to reboot the system.

Not sure what has changed but would like to get back to where I was a week or so ago with Firefox. Please advise.

Take a look at the screenshots. The second device is called "Firefox on HUAWEI LIO-L29", but I renamed it to "Mate 30 Pro" (screenshot 2).

Why is the device name displayed not "Mate 30 Pro", as in the case of "Macbook D14"? I renamed the device in Firefox settings a few days ago.
