Hi there, I have a new computer working under Ubuntu. When using Firefox I often have a problem with the characters which appear when I open webpages or even read pdf documents. This isssue does not seem to happen in a very consistent way (some websites will appear correctly one day and incorrectly another day). I include below a screenshot as example. The problem does not seem to appear with chromium... If you have any idea about how to fix this I would be very grateful Thanks Michael

When I connect from Ubuntu 20 (LTS) this message shows and it redirects me to the mobile version. That's not all bad but the mobile version doesn't work as well as it does in the Android version of Firefox Beta.

Firefox ESR on Devuan, both 2.0 and Beowulf, has a problem involving resizing. Webpages that formally displayed fine now are too large (the indicator shows 100%, but I must reduce it to 80% to display as it did before). Other Linux distributions, for example, Linux Mint and openSUSE, do not have this problem (PaleMoon on the Devuan system does not have the problem).

The hardware is old: Intel 3rd Generation Core processor, 8 GB memory, SSD connected via USB 3.0.

The best solution might be to run both Firefox ESR and regular Firefox. I can download the latter, extract it, move the folder to the desktop, and double-click on "firefox" to start it, similar to how I run PaleMoon. Is there a way to avoid them using the same profile?

Nationwide has decided recently that my firefox is not up to date and got me to delete bookmarks, then delete the cache. and some thing to do with the browser. I may have to ask them again as I have deleted bookmarks and updated but they still don't accept me or say there is a problem. any idea what I need to do with my browser? Things have worked well for years but no more. And being put back to my tortuous login every time is driving me mental. Best regards, Don.

I updated firefox with the Update Manager in Linux Mint to version "82.0+linuxmint4+ulyana".

The address bar doesn't give any suggestions (for example when partially typing "you", "youtube.com" used to show up) and search doesn't go to google search anymore. If I enter just one word as the search term and press enter, it takes 5-6 seconds and I am taken to that website (for example searching "facebook" takes me to facebook.com). Searching something gibberish like "asdasd" takes me to a page to buy that domain). Searching something with a space in it like "asd asd" and pressing enter doesn't do anything. Even clicking the "Go" arrow doesnt do anything.

My history is there in the histroy tab and all the suggestions options in preferences are already set.

I'd like to hide the title bar in Firefox. It takes up valuable on-screen real-estate, and doesn't really serve a purpose (other than showing a web page's full title, which I'm not interested in anyway).

In this screenshot, I have Firefox on the left, and Brave on the right. Now, I know it's only about 30 or so vertical pixels, but the title bar in Firefox is taking up a lot of space that could be used for actual web content.

Is there any way to disable this top bar? Or is it baked into the actual program itself?

I just changed my browser because the version I had before wasn't compatible with a site I needed to use for school. On this version instead of using the cursor designs that are used everywhere else, it uses it's own versions and I can't find a way to change this. When I go to click on a link it turns into this really ugly version of the hand cursor instead of the normal one. I know this doesn't seem important but it's actually triggering panic attacks for me. Please help! I'm using linux mint.

For example, this page mostly displays: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_lynx But items like the latin name does not (attached pic). Switching off the italics on the latin name causes it to display correctly.

Bolding text doesn't cause any issues.

My problem seems similar to this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/774797

However I can see Helvetica fonts just fine. I can cause the error when I switch it to italics. data:text/html,Helvetica Neue
''abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ


Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks!

Today I got what I've seen described as the "Facebook White Screen of Death". I've tried: Reload Clear Facebook cookies (which implies logging back in) Clear site data Restart in Safe Mode None of these things make any difference. Still get only a white screen. Facebook works fine in the Chrome browser and in the Android app, so it must be a Firefox-specific issue, in my case. This is Firefox 81.0.2 under Ubuntu 20.04 The problem only started today. I've used Facebook with Firefox for years without problem.
