I have Windows 10 at current maintenance and Firefox 75 -at current maintenance. I have no problem with any other website, and the Discover website was fine until Mon Apr. 13. Now it says my accounts cannot be accessed.

Discover support says it is a problem with Firefox Java settings, but I cannot find anything about Java in the options. They had me restart the PC and clear cache and cookies in Firefox, but neither solved the problem.

I can access these accounts successfully with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, so it looks like something in Firefox IS the problem. From previous support entries it looks like you have had similar issues in the past, so looks like that problem is back.

How soon can I expect this to be fixed? Firefox is my default browser, and I hate to have to use a different browser for just one website.

started using mozilla / firefox ages ago. over time my list has gotten so huge i need to manage it. i am sure i have duplicates and the recent update i did in November imported backups and imported bookmarks from other browsers. some i need and some i do not. it would take weeks for me to go through and move the ones i want and deleted invalid ones. i can only spend maybe 10-20 minutes a day trying to look at the bookmark list. it is so massive that it like trying to read a thousand page novel one page a day. i need to trim it down and remove duplicated marks and manage folders.

A .mp4 video clip on the web will play through f/f but with no sound. A .mp3 audio clip plays ok. The laptop sound controls are not muted. The mp4 clip shows a bar at the bottom and on the right there's a symbol that looks like a speaker with a bar through it. There seems no way to change this. The mp4 clip will play perfectly in WMP and from the website on a Samsung phone.

For some time now - two or three weeks - I experience R_END_OF_FILE_ERROR on many websites. It is only under Firefox. And not on all sites. One example is coronavirus.bg. I can't open it under Firefox. I use Firefox v.75 on Windows 7. I tried:

  • checking TLS settings - screenshot attached. Seems fine.
  • clearing the cache; didn't help.
  • turning network.dns.disableIPv6 to 'true'; didn't help.
  • turning network.dns.disablePrefetch to 'true'; didn't help.
  • restarting Firefox with add-ons disabled; didn't help.
  • scanning for malware; Malwarebytes didn't find any.

I am also attaching my browser test results from ssllabs.com.

I honestly don't know what to do and what is the issue. Please advise.

Two computers updated to 74.0 (64 bit) today. Prior to the update no problems. After the update several sites are ignored on both machines. No errors, warnings, etc. It is as if you never entered the url. Tried about 50 sites, found 4 that don't work (ones I use regularly). Found a thread about 70.1 that sounded similar which suggested setting dom.storage.next_gen to false. Checked and it was already false. Tried safe mode - no difference.

Everything works on other device, but on this clean install of a Windows machine, I can't get to download any file from Google Drive. I've reinstalled Firefox, downgraded the version, deleted cookies multiple times, disabled all extensions, went into incognito, nothing works!

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to doc-0g-70-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

From network tab, FF is constantly doing these two requests:

Request URL:https://doc-0g-70-docs.googleusercontent.com/docs/securesc/xxx Request Method:GET Remote Address:[2a00:1450:400e:808::2001]:443 Status Code: 302 Version:HTTP/2

Look, this is a huge problem because this message isn't just showing up on my Fire Fox browser, it's also on my TOR browser. I'm not seeking to fix TOR here, I'm just saying that it's on there too and TOR uses Fire Fox - this message appears nowhere else on my PC or browsers. My system was just purchased brand new in Feb. This message did not display when I dl either browser. I've NEVER downloaded ANY Avast or anything like it, I use Windows Defender and that's it. I'm not a techie - but I'm like really neurotic over hard drive space - I don't download ANYTHING unless I absolutely HAVE to with the exception of browsers. I only download those from their official websites though. I do play some games, I've only downloaded games from Steam, Origin, and Utomik. I do have all of their clients on my PC. Other than that, there's been NOTHING I've dl. I only included that info because I thought it might help. Can someone PLEASE help with this. I tried to look at the registry, I'm not seeing anything that seems amiss but I need more specifics - I've read the other questions and answers on this - but I don't know HOW to change anything to see if it helps. I already am scared to death to touch the registry.

I've tried most of the Netflix (website's) suggestions to troubleshoot why videos won't play with Firefox; none could fixed the issue. The only suggestion I did not try is to disable Private browsing mode simply because I don't know how to do it and Firefox Support does not specifically address this task. I've also tried the suggestions provided by various forum responders to this issue ... again, no fix! Can someone please provide specific instructions on how to disable Private browsing?

I'm tired of switching from FF to IE every time I want to watch a movie.

I'm having a lot of trouble with the URL autocomplete function not working. I have been trying to solve this for a couple days and nothing is working to enable the URL autocomplete. Here are some of the things I have tried - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much!

-Made sure the browser.urlbar.autoFill item is set to 'true' -Adjusted Firefox History settings to 'Remember History' -Adjusted Firefox Address Bar settings (Browsing History, Bookmarks, and Open Tabs are checked) -Cleared cache and cookies -Reset Firefox several times -Reinstalled Firefox (without deleting profile and Firefox data)

I have attached screenshots of how my 'about:config' looks, as well as the 'Important Modified Preferences,' in case there's an error that someone else can catch.

(I am running Firefox 68.0.2 on macOS Mojave Version 10.14.5)
