    Firefox does not show a particular link symbol


    After the recent update of Firefox, something has changed.
    Accessing my router, a particular window shows a symbol/pictue, which link directs to another window in the router.
    After the recent Firefox update, that symbol/picture changed into three dots, hardly visible. They still direct to the appropriate window.

    Using Firefox in my tablet (Android) the original link symbol is still shown.
    Any suggestion? Some bug in the update?

    Assuming you’re talking about FF v.72.0.2, it would be helpful if you posted images of the offending screen. I have v.72.0.2 with no issues running under W10 v.1903. What version of Windows are you running?

    On mine hovering over the 3 horizontal dots on the right end of the URL/Address box shows Page actions and when clicked gets a drop-down list of functions one might want to use.

    Thanks for reactions.

    There is not really a problem, since the link still functions as it should. Further, this particular link symbol is correctly shown on some other pages. I am just wondering what might be the cause or bug. PC has windows version: v1909 64 bits.

    Did you check the various settings? Perhaps something got changed when FF was updated. Compare a version that works with the one that is problematic. I’m typing this on just updated iOS FF v22 and my PC is v72.0.2 . One option is “offer to open copied links”, but I’m clutching at straws.

    It looks like a bigger font, causing the space to shrink, so the image is not shown.

    Try to zoom out or try to pick a smaller font size.

    Zooming in and out, also only the font size, did not change the effect.
    Also after starting Firefox in safe mode (addons disabled), the effect remains.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Under FF Help and troubleshooting Information, there is the option: give FF a tune up. Thereafter, addons must be reinstalled.
    This solved the problems, mentioned above.
