Hello Mozilla Support, Google sign-in pop-up persists after disabling it. I have searched the web for this solution, enacted them, but the problem persists even after I have turned off the feature in my Google account. (See my attached images.) Some posts have commented that the problem persists in the Firefox browser, but not in other browsers. Thank you for support.

My Firefox refuses to load MetaCPAN's OpenSearch.xml file, even though I can access it without problems.

So this got me thinking, as Opensearch files are relatively easy to write, is it possible to import my own opensearch.xml into Firefox?

If it's impossible, I'll submit a ticket to bugzil.la.

Hi Firefox community, I don't want to store any account login data (also not usernames) on the shared PC that I'm using. In settings > passwords there is no entry, and under access data and passwords any options are deactivated. Although passwords are not stored, Firefox shows the user names/account names whenever I click such field. Where can I deactivate that user names/account names are stored and shown? Many Thanks in advance. Best wishes!

Hi

I am finding it near impossible to use Firefox at the moment, I can no longer successfully log on to my First Direct page page, My Royal Mail OBA page, I couldn't get the Virgin media chat link to load from firefox the other day, this is just to name a few. I can do all these tasks on other browsers, just not on Firefox, I am at the point of totally giving up on using Firefox and unistalling it. I have tried clearing cookies and cache and it did nothing to resolve these issues.

I have no idea what is going on but I am finding that the list of websites that I can no longer use on firefox just grows and grows. Any advice?

I use firefox 108.0.2 (64-bit) and MacBook Air (Retina, 13-inch, 2020) on MacOS Monterey.

Thanks Louise

Hi, I just bought a new Windows 11 Ideapad laptop and installed Firefox 109.

The laptop display has a resolution of 2560x1600. My external monitor has a resolution of 1920x1200, so both are 16:10.

If I duplicate displays and just use the external monitor, which is what I have always done, Firefox renders all text as very blotchy, like a printer that is running out of ink.

Edge looks fine on the external monitor. I installed Chrome and it also looks fine.

I have a attached some sample images. I used my phone to take photos of the monitor. I noticed that if I used the Windows Snipping Tool or FF's built-in Take Screenshot that the image was darker and clearer in the selection box than when it's normally displayed.

I read a lot of comments on forums about various setting changes to try in about:config under gfx.font_rendering. Many folks say that has helped them. I tried lots of those setting changes, but none of them helped.

Also in those forums some folks said there was a change in rendering from FF 108 to 109, so I installed FF 108 but it looks no better.

Since I normally just use the external monitor, when I looked at the laptop, I suddenly noticed that Firefox on the laptop display looks fine.

Some online searching suggests using "Extend Display" in Windows if the laptop and external monitor resolutions do not match. I tried that and then Firefox looks fine on the external monitor. The laptop senses the different resolutions, it seems, and changes something that helps Firefox.

I prefer just using the external monitor. Duplicating the display is an option, though not my first choice. My other options are: Buy a new monitor with 2560x1600 resolution, except that I just bought this monitor recently so that's wasted money. Return the laptop since I've only had it 2 days and get one with a 1920x1200 display. I had considered one of those, but it was more expensive and opted for this one.

I'm trying to understand why this would only affect Firefox and not Edge or Chrome. Are there any ideas on that and if there is a way to remedy it?

Thanks, Ross

Hi, I recently began having trouble getting Youtube to work on Firefox.. Doesn't seem to want to connect, slow to open, mostly not at all, sometimes loads half the page....etc Constantly comes back with a message that I am not connected to the internet, which is nonsense.. It loads instantly in Microsoft Edge..which I normally don't use at all. I have deleted all history , Cache etc multiple times and that works maybe for one time and then the problem is back again.

Appreciate some help.

I installed Mozilla VPN just over one year ago. I never could get it working right (my issue I'm sure) and simply forgot about it. Until I was billed for another year recently. I really do not need VPN at all because I always use secure methods when online such as Kaspersky protected browsing and PayPal and Zelle also. Please direct me to whomever is able to cancel my VPN account and possibly issue a refund. A phone number would be nice if a better explanation is necessary. Thank you for helping me, I look forward to hearing back.
