Greetings, I have an iMac running OS Monterey 12.2.1. I use Firefox as my browser and it is 'up to date'.

My homepage is the Sydney Morning Herald, and I am a subscriber of many years. When I open the browser is shows the Home Page of the SMH, and shows my name as being 'logged on'. BUT, when I click on any story within that page to read in depth, it goes to that story, but requires me to 'log in' the password a second time.

When contacting Apple Support, they requested I try both Safari and Chrome to see if the same problem exists there. And, it doesn't. I can log on to the SMH site and then click on any story and read it without needing to log in a second time.

I am 84 years of age and find this rather frustrating... particularly as I do not have the cyber skills of a younger person. I am used to Firefox and prefer it as my chosen browser.

I hope you can advise me how to rectify this vexing problem.

Thanks, Frank Arnold I

Since downloading 94, several websites contain symbols which look like they might be Chinese(?). Is anyone else experiencing this and how do you get rid of them? It happens whether or not I assign a font or let the website use its own.

On Startup: - "Open previous windows and tabs." Yes, I have this checked, but it ain't actually doing it. What's the solution?

True or False? If this box is checked I can quit Firefox altogether which tabs still open, and those same tabs will automatically load again upon reopening Firefox.

(Upon writing back, please refrain from thanking me for anything.)

I hope this is the right category. I recently switched to Firefox, and while I love both the customization aspect and how privacy-centered it is, I have 1 small thing that is bugging me a lot: printing. I'm on an M1 Macbook Air, and when I do Command+P (which is the default printing command for OSX), it downloads the file I'm attempting to print instead of sending it to preview instead of printing. I have changed the "Applications" setting so it says "Open in Preview" where I can print it from. However, it still downloads the file along with printing it. I have tried doing "Open in Firefox", and it has the same affect where it both prints the document but also downloads this. What can I do to change this, if anything? Thank you!

Hello! I'm running 78.15.0esr (64-bit) on El Capitan (Mac).

On my LinkedIn page, I cannot scroll the messages on the main page. I looked up any clues with the inspector and Google, but found nothing.


I deleted cookies, cache and tried in Safe mode but issue persists.

Any ideas? Thanks a lot in advance and wishing you a great day!

The whole scrolling experience overall does not work very well on LinkedIn. I understand I'm running on an old OS, however it's the one that works the best with my laptop. Any recommendations as to what's the best and most updated browser for this version?

thanks!

Just recently, faxtone.com started popping open the downloads panel every time I save a file from there. When I traced it down... I found it hard to believe, but Firefox is allowing it to change my browser.downloads.panel.shown flag to true. This happens no matter how many times I change it back to false, and it doesn't help to make sure that browser.downloads.alwaysOpenPanel and browser.downloads.improvements_to_download_panel are false.

Does anyone know of a flag that forbids webpages from making changes to about:config?

(It also allowed the webpage to change browser.downloads.lastDir to Desktop. Thankfully it only did that the one time, and hasn't done it again since I set it to match my browser.downloads.dir, but it's still really disturbing behavior.)

  1. Default home page keeps getting reset to "Browser default" every day or two.
  2. The search engine choice keeps defaulting "Browser default" and goes to Yahoo. My preference is Google.

Earlier someone said that one of the Add-ons might be causing this and that i should disable all of them and try. No improvement. It still keeps happening.

I even re-installed FF to no avail.

Can someone help sort this out?

Many thanks.

I received the message Access Denied Error 121 while working on my Ancestry.com page. I have always had access to Ancestry using Firefox. I tried logging off of Ancestry and logging back in. That did not fix the problem. I also made sure that Ancestry is on the Standard setting for cookies. That did not fix it either.

What do I need to do to fix the problem. I use a MAC. As I said before, I have always used Firefox for my Ancestry work because the site works better on Firefox than Safari.

Please help,

It is still happening. Please let me know if there is a fix for this (besides not using Firefox).
