Why won't firefox display the graphic version of the Fox News web page unless I turn off the "Block dangerous and deceptive content" feature? Is Mozilla being political?

Hi

Not at all, there is probably an element of that page which is not secure and is tripping that control.

If you could share the address of the website where this gas happened, we will be able to look into this further for you.

The "Block dangerous and deceptive content" feature uses Google's Safe Browsing service. You can report false positives directly to Google:

The address is https://www.foxnews.com/ However, it no longer responds in this way. After turning "Block dangerous and deceptive content" back on, the web page continued to display properly. I can no longer reproduce the problem.

Re the non-secure element, I have "Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode" set and browsing to http://www.foxnews.com didn't help: it just switched to https (without my command).

What it displayed was a (mostly) text based version of the foxnews page. The menus that are normally (graphically) displayed at the top of the page were all text based and aligned vertically. Down at the bottom, there were still graphics for the individual stories. All of the adds were gone. To me, it looked more like some sort of js problem.

I'll grab a screenshot the next time it happens.

BTW, my OS is ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS (core 11.1) and firefox is at 117.0 (64-bit).

It may very well have been a temporary problem with the site. Please reply here if and when the problem reoccurs.

This sounds more like CSS files are missing blocked.

You can reload webpage(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Settings).

"Remove the Cookies" for websites that cause problems:

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Data"

"Clear the Cache":

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> [X] Cached Web Content -> Clear

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or if userChrome.css/userContent.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the Default System theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
