It is very convenient to open commonly visited sites from Firefox home, but there is no need for sites that i rarely visit.

Firefox automatically adds random sites that I have visited to empty slots. There should be option to disable this. There is a option in menu for this but it is not toggle-able.

Or is there a property in about:config that controls this? I tried some but they didnt't help.

For some reason text on some websites such as wikipedia and timeanddate is completely messed up, it looks like gibberish but is actually just displayed wrong. When you copy the text and paste it into something like Word it shows the text correctly, I've noticed that the text is shifted by one letter forward (e is f, f is g, etc.). I've tried the main, beta and nightly releases as well as reinstalling Firefox. Images attached.

Google search pages not showing text after Mac OS 12.6 Monterey upgrade

Since upgrading to Monterey, Google search pages show almost no text in Firefox. Google searches in Safari and Google Chrome are completely fine. Only Firefox is showing the problem. The blank text includes dropdown menus too - all options inside them are blank. Currently on Firefox v107.0, but the same problem happens with older versions.

If I go into Troubleshoot mode, the Google searches are working fine. I have refreshed Firefox, Cleared the startup cache. But the problem persists. I uninstalled Firefox from the machine, restarted the computer. Did a fresh download and install, haven't signed in so there are no addons/extensions to cause problems.

This is happening on both an Intel Mac and an M1 Mac running Mac OS 12.6 Monterey.

I attach one screenshot showing the same page with and without troubleshoot mode on. The second screenshot shows another page of results including what looks like weirdly encoded characters.

I've followed all the suggestions in the support page but nothing has helped. I'd really appreciate any advice on further troubleshooting. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

with a lot of effort I edited three times all my container entries at about:preferences#containers, but the changes were not overtaken correctly.

Now I want to start from the scratch without having to create a new Firefox profile. How can I delete the container entries permanently ? I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension, but the entries were still there afterwards.

Thanks

XULRunner Error: Could not determine any profile running in backgroundtask mode!

I recently installed new pc with fresh Firefox Developer Edition. Then I transfered the profile folder from old pc to the new pc. All bookmarks, addons, etc is there. Just the XULRunner popup appears only on the new pc. I uninstalled firefox on the new pc again and reinstalled it with profile cleaning. After profile cleaning firefox got faster and addons got removed. But the XULRunner popup keeps appearing. When I go to taskscheduler and trigger the "Firefox Developer Edition Background Update CA9422711AE1A81C" again, the XULRunner popup appears. Removing this taskscheduler and Firefox keeps readding it and the XULRunner popup are back. Any idea how I can get rid of the XULRunner popup?

So, I am a Linux user who is used to shell commands like mv or cp. One of their feature is absence of prompts like "Are you sure what you want to replace foo.txt?". Because I have somewhat organized fs, I always know what that file is for and if I can overwrite it.


Now I have to download some files, what I need only for uploading onto another website / reading them once. So, I just download them into my /tmp folder and save them under the same name (so I could just repeat cat command and reduce clutter). But each time I download a file Firefox asks for confirmation to replace my existing file. Are there any config flags to disable those annoying prompts?

Is there any way I can completely disable horizontal scrolling? I'm using a laptop with a trackpoint (lenovo x230, Windows 10) and it's not terribly accurate, which means scrolling whilst a youtube video is going often makes it track backwards or forwards, and another website I use uses a horizontal click to send me to the next page, which sucks. I would prefer to just be able to disable it entirely. Thanks!

I swear to god I used to have it disabled, just need to work out how again.

FireFox V. 107.0 -MBP-High Sierra.

Lately the last couple of months when I google search webpages then select them, Fire Fox doesnt bring up the article, Its been happening a lot and getting really irritating. So I bring up Google Chrome and it always brings up the article. SEE THE PICTURES. I use only Fire Fox as my browser, I keep Chrome around for when Fire Fox doesnt want to work properly. As you will see in the pictures the same website for both browsers. Fire Fox wont show the article no matter how many times I refresh the page or shut FF down, or reboot my MBP, but Chrome works perfectly every damned time. Why cant Fire Fox open the article but Chrome can? I need your help, any advice is greatly appreciated. SEE THE PICTURES.

I have recently updated my site to run off a different hosting provider, and CloudFlare, a long needed change to my site. However, in doing so, my site has become unreachable on my laptop, with firefox (and other browsers) still thinking that my domain is attached to the old nameservers, causing it to redirect to the "site not found" page of my previous hosting provider. I have tried flushing my system's DNS cache, clearing my browser cache, clearing the browser's DNS records, all to no avail, however, I do know my site works, as on my mobile phone with basic Safari, the site works fine.

my system is on Ubuntu 22.04, and running firefox version 107.0
