I get the message

Bad Request

Every time I try to log in to my account. All other sites appear to work correctly.

This happened this week, what is going on with Firefox? I can log in to my bank account from another browser. I have version 70.0.1 (64 bit).

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

This happens AFTER I log in to my account, when I try to look at my account balance or make a payment - or even when I try to log out. Interestingly it does not happen if I want to check something that requires a new tab to be opened. That works ok.

All other sites are working correctly.

My bank says it is most like an incompatibility with the latest version of Firefox - and can only offer the option to uninstall and reinstall Firefox or use another browser. (I have a back-up browser which does function properly.) I am running Firefox 75.0 on Windows 7 Professional - I have some work programs that don't work with more recent Windows versions. The last time I was able to use my internet banking through Firefox was 7th April.

I did that - and this was the only question that came anywhere near describing my problem - which is too complicated to put into a single sentence.

that's why I gave you my system details.
