Hey all - been trying to troubleshoot an issue with Firefox (multiple of the latest versions, but 77 currently) on Mac OSX Catalina, appreciate any help!

Issue: Certain websites intermittently display strange behavior, such as not loading interactive content (videos/gifs on reddit, for example, displaying as static images) and some sites not loading images at all (Twitter shows empty boxes where images would be) and a few other similar issues.

Steps I've tried: - Using a private window solves almost all the issues. But disabling all extensions and plugins in a normal window doesn't solve it. (I believe I understand private windows to use the RAM for caching but use the HDD under normal circumstances?) - Enabling/disabling VPN makes no difference, nor does what network I'm on, and other devices on this network have no similar issues - Other browsers on the same computer have no issues - Malware, anti-virus, etc all are active and scan has been run a few times. - Apple's hardware diagnostic turns up no issues, and this has happened now in FF over multiple of the latest versions (not sure when exactly it started) on two different Macbooks, though the new one is from an image of the old one (maybe that's something?) - Uninstalling/reinstalling FF does not make a difference

Where I'm at: The only thing that sort of worked (But it's now stopped working on certain sites, but continues to work for others) is moving FF's profile folder, uninstalling, and reinstalling. I was lead to believe FF would then create a new folder when this happened, but it just kicked up an error for me and wouldn't start. When I moved the old profile folder back and started up the freshly installed version with the old profile folder, the problems were all solved. Though as mentioned, they are starting to happen again on some of the sites. No errors or changes have been made that I can identify, plenty of space available on the HDD, etc.

I've become a big fan of FF over the years (over Chrome), and want to stay in a privacy-focused browser, but I haven't been able to find much that seems to help this specific situation online. Any help is appreciated!

When I key www.<website>.com in location bar and hit enter, Firefox uses http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com, to find the website. Most of the time the http:// version does not resolve to a website. It just hunts and hunts and hunts. This same thing happens many times when I click on a link in gmail which I open in Firefox.

Since we are all supposed to be using httpS:// these days, why doesn't Firefox default to https://?

Is there some setting that I'm missing?

Thanks, Caitlin

I can browse web pages fine, but I cannot gain access to login to my FireFox Account. I have had to use another browser to post this as I needed to login to my Forefox Account in order to do so.

Why am I seen these symbols?

When I use Zendesk (my company's chosen support ticket solution) it is disabling my ability to right click in any other open tab/window. When I close Zendesk, close Firefox, and reopen all the other tabs/sites besides Zendesk, my right click function is restored.

I have no clue what the Zendesk site is doing that is causing this, but I'm wondering if Firefox has a way for me to disable that for the Zendesk site, while still being able to use it's functionality.

When I access "Cookies and Site Data" the "Manage Data" button does not appear. I usually have to refresh the page once or twice to activate it. Then, when I select it - the pop-up window for "Manage Cookies and Site Data" very often is blank. Again, I either have to wait some time or refresh to get the list of cookies. Is this normal?

I use firefox browser for work, and sometimes when I open it it has changed back to some previous version - not the actual browser, it always says it's up to date, but my bookmarks and everything are old. And all of a sudden it won't remember any of my passwords. And then I'll open it another day and it will be back to normal with all the correct bookmarks and my passwords saved. Any ideas?

Since yesterday I an getting an error message on all sites" Did not connect: Potential security issue" www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

Password protection on a site/folder hosted by Earthlink doesn't work in Firefox 77.0.1. This worked in previous versions of Firefox, as recently as about 2 months ago. I've cleared the cache and restarted the browser numerous times, which always worked before when testing the password(s).

Can you help or explain?

Thanks very much for an otherwise great browser app.
