I do web design. And my problem is that I used to click the refresh button in firefox and it would instantly load an updated version of the pages I was working on. But now it does the exact same thing I hate about chrome. It loads pages using cached css and javascript files. And the only way to view the updated websites is to go private mode which is very annoying. Is there an option to get around this? Or it's a software problem?

Firefox is up to date, cache and all temporary files have been deleted, system has been restarted multiple times, have tried disabling ad-blockers and all security...

ALL other sites are working perfectly. but when trying to access evga.com or any EVGA pages I get a blank white page with no errors, just plain white.

if I use Internet Explorer, Edge, or Chrome the site shows and works fine.

what could be causing this issue?

I read a newspaper that has the following site: https://www.lanacion.com.ar. The stories are shown, no problem with that. There is a comment section at the end of a story. Up until a few months ago it appeared, lately it doesn't show. Safari and Chrome have no problem. The comments are served by livefyre, so I suspect that some setting in Firefox is blocking. I would appreciate some help in finding the setting. Thanks, Francisco

Embedded videos at a particular website do not play in FF 80.0.1 (64 bit). My system is running Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS.

I have tried workarounds but none have provided a remedy. There could be a bug in FF causing this but I'm not sure.

Here is an example link: https://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/video/1788049475999/Winning-moment-Stage-14

This is the behaviour I see: After I click the play button in the lower left of the embedded frame the video begins to load. The beginning of an ad flashes into the video box but cuts out before playing. The video box is then loaded with the first shot of vision I wish to view but does not play.

I use four FF profiles with various modifications to improve privacy and security. When these changes occasionally cause problems with website function I try loading the website in a FF profile with reduced security/privacy controls. Modifications include changes to privacy and security settings, browser extensions and about:config changes.

Cascading through profiles with a step-wise reduction in the number of modifications still wouldn't permit me to play videos from this site. Even my vanilla FF profile with only a few UI tweaks does not play the video. After that I tried loading problematic pages in a brand new, freshly created vanilla FF profile to which no changes had been made. Videos still wouldn't play in a pristine profile with zero user modifications.

My internet connection comes via a smartphone mobile hotspot. The phone has a system level ad blocker running (Android phone, Blokada app) but switching it off did not allow the videos to play.

After that I tried a different browser. I installed Brave browser via Snap. Version 1.13.82 Chromium: 85.0.4183.83 (Official Build) (64-bit)

It played the video first time. Therefore internet connection to site is good. Did not load advertisement at start of video, no flash of ad content. When the video panel is loaded in Brave a large yellow play button is superimposed on the first frame of the video. The button is a yellow circle with a right-pointing yellow triangle inside it. Clicking the white play button in the lower left corner of the embedded video frame does not play the video. Clicking the large superimposed yellow icon initiates video play.

I'd be grateful for advice on how to rectify this problem.

Several days ago, Firefox started giving me what seem to be mobile versions of some sites instead of the desktop layouts I want. Ars Technica offers a way to switch to the full-site view. Slashdot does not. (It's URL comes up as m.slashdot.org even when I type in slashdot.org the hard way.) The problem does not affect all sites, but it does mess up several I look at daily. I did not deliberately change my preferences or otherwise alter Firefox.

I have tried bringing Firefox up in safe mode and even removing it and downloading it again. No change.

Help would be much appreciated. I like Firefox much better than the alternatives, but if this doesn't get fixed I will have to give up on it.

Many thanks.

Hello, MAC OSX. Firefox 80.0.1

Site is : https://meteofrance.com There is a button "Ajouter une ville". It is supposed to scroll down an input field. Worked until one week ago, does no longer work. Works on all browsers, safe FIREFOX.

Site manager says one week ago they upgraded to https. This + some configuration of Firefox on my Mac is the cause of the button not working. They say.

I have no idea where to start looking for (checked TLS level though, it is max 4 min 3).

Does someone have an idea.

Thanks very much.

I live in the Netherlands but have both Firefox and Windows set to English-US as my default (and only) language in the settings. However, when I browse to some sites, I notice I'm redirected to the Dutch-language version of the page and usually the URL will have the /nl slug added to it, or /?lang=nl but I do not want that. It happens with Google, Adobe, and many other major ones.

I don't use a VPN so obviously my IP address is detected as being from NL but is there a way to force websites in Firefox to only display in English? It even happens if I go to amazon.com, I'm redirected to amazon.nl.
