Hi,

First off, I have only ever used Firefox in English. I don't speak enough of any other language well enough to do otherwise. I booted up my gaming PC today and opened Firefox, and the language on my menus, bookmarks toolbar, and almost all Firefox UI has randomly changed to what looks like it might be Greek. I can't change it back. It looks from the settings page that the selected language is English, but again I don't speak or read Greek so I have no idea what's going on here. I've run a virus scan, nothing came up. I tried clearing the Firefox startup cache, that didn't help. It's only the Firefox menus that are in Greek, webpages are still showing up in English like they should.

Can somebody help me fix this please? I use Firefox as my main browser on all of my PCs and I don't want to have to switch to using Chrome on one of them. Thanks!

I lost my old session and while attempting to fix the issue I overwrote my sessionstore.json backups in the process. Now all i have are the upgrade.jsonlz4 files, i know those are old session backups from when we upgraded. how do i go about restoring those as a session? when i follow the typical session restore steps nothing happens seemingly because its a jsonlz4 - XXXXXX file.

Any way to change it to a normal jsonlz4 file?

Just recently started using Firefox and Duckduckgo. Suddenly any attempt to use my credit card to charge anything I cannot click on the icon, or enter CC info. Very strange. Same is true for Shopify although Shopify does send me a verification code. Only thing that works is PayPal. Annoying.

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Hire staff instead of your blind leading the blind approach would be appreciated.

Case in point, password security regarding access to my Last Pass vault!

Through one of your updates, my master password to access my Last Pass account is shown which allows anyone to access my last pass vault. Your instructions are useless and incorrect and your real support is a joke.

If you have an accurate solution that applies to your CURRENT version, I would appreciate your help.

As a FYI, Chrome and the other normal browsers have retained the requirement to provide their master password to gain access to my Last Pass vault.

Aside from this issue and lack of real support, your browser is great. If I can's get a solution from you, I will have to stop using your browser.

My printer is printing invoices from ebay but the logo and image previews are now larger (and cropped). I tried resetting the printer no luck I logged into the same area on Safari and produced a pdf that printed fine When I went back to Firefox and generated a pdf (print using the system dialogue..) it generated the sam problem

To be clear - The images are much bigger but cropped in the window dedicated to displaying it on the invoice so it only shows a small section of the image.

is this a current bug? How do I get help from a trouble shooting chat window? Thanks Mac Monterey Firefox 103.0.2

Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

best, Sea

I am trying to check in-store stock of an item on a website. When I click to check stock it opens another page but the only thing on the page is the browser frame with the word "safe" in the upper left corner. The links work on all my other browsers. I have used troubleshooting mode and refreshed Firefox but it continues to happen.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Mac OS X 10.14.6.

Whenever I go to print PDFs from Firefox, usually through Gmail, if there are any images in the PDFs they are blown up way past their margins and rendered unreadable. This isn't a huge issue but it is affecting some text as well, meaning I can't print the documents directly from Firefox. I can download the documents and print them from Preview just fine, so it isn't an issue with the printer.

I'm attaching a screenshot of my print settings and an example of what Firefox is outputting (converted to JPEG so I can upload it).

I will post an image to show what is happening when I use the paste in the toolbar search item. I did a retore to defaults and it fixed the issue until the next day after a reboot of the pc and it is back. Anybody else see this behavior and know how to fix it? Thanks, Dave

p.s. I wrote up a larger version of this and tried to share data which didn't work automatically and wiped out my story. :(

How do I stop the Firefox popup ads, every time I open my browser? I will NEVER ACCEPT ANY OFFER via this method!

Also, how do I change the defaulted "keep me logged in" check box to NO CHECK CHECK MARK in that field as default. This is a security issue!
