I've been to several websites in the last couple of days that won't load in firefox, but will in chrome ( which I had to download to order groceries and I am not super happy about it ). the most egregious was today, I tried to order groceries from a major grocery store: meijer.com and the main page opened but if I like searched for "coke" it would freeze and nothing would load. not just coke, but also any other search term

With Windows 10 autofill with Firefox never worked for me even though the appropriate options were checked. I recently upgraded to Windows 11 and it worked! So happy. But that was only for about 2 weeks. And then a couple of days ago it stopped working. (Maybe from a Firefox update??) It's really frustrating and tedious even with the passwords being filled automatically when I start the login process with the user name. Is there anything that can be done?

How to contact an add-on developer who has no contact info

I installed the Mail Link Enhancer add-on. It works, sort-of. The subject line and other fields included after the ? in the mailto address do not get filled in. Looking at the add-on info, the developer is Nick, but there is no contact info in the More Information section of the add-on profile. The add-on hasn't been updated since 2020, so I'm fairly certain that things changed since then and that's why it isn't working, but I'm no expert.

I have a new laptop so needed to install an adblock. The search results page gave many choices. However, no matter which one I clicked on it said this page is not available in your region. Now how is that possible seeing as on my previous laptop and in the same region I could install the add on? I have had to use a VPN to install the adblocker. Please explain how regions prevent the installation and why it happens. Firefox is universal or so I thought.

Firefox will not load https://www.washingtonpost.com/ unless I clear my cookies. EVERY TIME!! EVERY TIME!! not just once. ALWAYS. I get a "secure connection failed" error. It comes up on other sites too, but this one is consistent. I am tired of clearing my cookies to read the paper each day or even a second time after the first time I load the page.

When I used to click on "new tab" on my old windows 10 computer, I could have the screen display about 3 rows of bookmarks with apps next to them . With my new computer--HP and windows 11, the "new tab" screen only displays only one row of about 8 bookmarks/apps and I can't add more. Why is that? How can I get the "new tab" to display more bookmarks/apps?

Dear Firefox,

I had to buy a new computer and when I tried to sign in to my Firefox account I could'nt remember my password, so I had to reset it. Doing so I lost all my bookmarks.

Is there a way that I can recover them.

Many thanks.

Firefox keeps sending telemetry data despite being deactivated

Hi all,

I have stumbled upon an issue. I am running the 111.0 (64-bit) Firefox desktop version and I have deactivated all telemetry options under 'Firefox Data Collection and Use'.

However, the browser keeps attempting to send telemetry data, calling: "incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org", which I have blocked with custom DNS filtering.

I am quite disappointed by this and somewhat perplexed that this is happening given that the browser doesn't seem to be respecting the fact that I disabled all 'Firefox Data Collection and Use' options? Why is this happening and how can I fully deactivate telemetry collection beyond this?

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the network protocol was detected.
