I do not know what json files are. I have only seen them in the profile. However, whatever their purpose, firefox is no longer processing json files. Instead, it wants to download json.txt when I make some selections.

Example: on Youtube when signed into my account, I select "notification" and instead of the menu opening, the download box appears wanting to download json.txt. This has happened in numerous places - not only youtube, so it looks like a Firefox problem.

Firefox used to process json files and now wants to download them. I tried to configure json in options, and when I select "other" Firefox shows up as a choice it it not possible to select it. I select it, but it does not change the ONLY options for json files which are "always ask" or "save".

This is clearly not something I can fix, not something I caused. I need the features that are not functional, and apparently they have become dysfunctional because they apparently access json files but no longer process them as intended.

Would appreciate knowing what the problem is, if there is an explanation. Is there a fix? Do I need to configure something? Thanks. Mary

Was using FF 79.0. Everything worked great. I upgraded to 80 or so a while back and found that it was taking ~7-10 seconds before FF would begin to load an initial webpage, so I used system restore to go back to 79. I've upgraded to 82.0.2 and the same thing is happening. Tried going back using system restore, but system restore failed for some reason, so I'm now stuck. I haven't had success re-installing FF 79.0. Any ideas why FF would be so slow loading a page? FYI, once I'm on that website, if I click to another page on that website, it loads quickly and normally. Only seems to be when I'm moving to a new website. I'm using Windows 7.

I use an app that enables me to scan an expense to pdf, then opens the pdf file so I can see the details to enter the amount, supplier, expense type, date into the bookkeeping system to create the bookkeeping entry and attach the pdf to it. I use Firefox as my default browser (version 83.0). However, I cannot see the PDF data anymore - it is totally blank, so I cannot use the functionality. I have queried this with the bookkeeping support who say this is a browser issue. If I use another browser e.g. Opera the functionality works fine. Can anyone suggest whether this is a Firefox settings issue or suggest a fix? TIA

This morning my Sony laptop crashed. Fortunately, I have an HP that has not long been repaired under guarantee. All I have done up to today is make sure it works OK and add Mcafee security.

I am now using this and have succesfully installed several programmes including Firefox.

I have been through this process many times, having bought my first laptop in 1991. for virtually all that time I have used Firefox and always synced successfully on many occassions.

So I never thought I would have a problem today but, no matter what I have tried. I have had no success.

Firefox often times out when accessing paypal.com and other sites that use certificates from DigiCert. The same sites can be accessed reliably, from the same computer at the same time, using chromium-based browsers.

The problem goes away if I disable the check to query OCSP responder, which may indicate the cause of the problem.

Often the sites can be accessed after restarting firefox, but after a few tries the problem recurs. This is not a solution as PayPal is often accessed in the last steps of an online purchase.

For the past few days, Firefox has been running painfully slowly. I have tried to reset it, reinstall it and running Glary Utilities to clean but nothing has worked so far. I also have Opera and Chrome which are running absolutely fine. The program itself starts up fine but just seems to be very slow to load pages.

I am on Windows 10 with latest updates which is run on a separate SSD drive. Everything else runs very quickly like the resource heavy NoxPlayer.

Please let me know what further details I can provide you with.

Thank you in advance!

So Im trying to download a 1.19GB file and get 300mb/s ethernet speed using speedtest.net/ Now normally from my experience its never taken longer that 10 sec to Download such a file. Although since today, either Firefox or my pc has decided to limit download speed to 90kb/s which means this is going to take 3h or so to download. I use Windows 10, don't have a metered plan enabled or any other wifi/ethernet speed limiting things, and no third party security software. Anyone have any ideas why this could be happening? Many thanks in advance

For several years I have used Firefox as my browser. Recently I can no longer access by bank accounts. I have no problem accessing them if I go to Google Chrome and use their browser. I am able to access all my other accounts such as credit cards but for some reason Firefox no longer works for me to access my bank accounts. I have spoke to the banks and they have no clue as to why Firefox does not support their sites. Help?

I use a 55 inch TV as my computer monitor with Windows7 OS. All of a sudden this week the animations are on every site... Netflix just became unbearable to watch. I have already gone though the steps to turn off all animations in Firefox. I performed these steps...

'''in about:config - type : toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled - set it to : false - type : toolkit.scrollbox.smoothScroll - set it to : false'''

This did NOTHING to turn off the nauseating animations. Every time I scroll a web page I feel motion sickness. Every movie I watch now looks like garbage.

I ALSO have turned off ALL animations in Windows7... so this is really upsetting. Movies I have downloaded seem to play fine in VLC player, but if I use my browser to watch a video, it is now unbearable because of these garbage animations wreaking havoc on my screen.

Anytime Firefox opens it is asking for my Primary password. This has been happening for 2 or 3 weeks. I can enter my password or click cancel. But if I close and reopen the browser it happens again, regarless of what page I am on. (Annoying when clicking a link to read a short article) I do not have AVG or ISlet (sp?) installed. I tried that solution and it did not work.

Suggestions on how to debug, diagnose or fix appreciated.

Désolé, vous n'êtes pas autorisé à demander la requête http://testproxy.umontreal.ca/ de ce cache tant que vous ne serez pas identifié. Please contact the cache administrator if you have difficulties authenticating yourself.

Which means the request is rejected (bad identification, cache access forbidden). It is accepted and works fine with Chrome and Edge. Is it a problem with the last update ?
