What happens when you try to do this in Firefox for iOS? Is there any error message?

  1. Visit the site that you're exerperiencing problems with
  2. Click on the left side of the address bar
  3. Slide off the toggle for "Enhanced Tracking Protection"
  4. Now see if the site works normally.

Slid off the toggle for "Enhanced Tracking Protection" - no change. Bill Pay is the only area of the entire website that I can't access. Any other options happily accepted.

Thanks, Ken

As the iOS version of Firefox (for iPhone/iPad) does not support Extensions, I take it you are actually using desktop Firefox on macOS. Only the desktop (for macOS, Windows, Linux) and Android version of Firefox supports Extensions like those on addons.mozilla.org.

/moved thread from Firefox for iOS (for iPhone/iPad) to (desktop) Firefox section.

So if this is a supported add-on, why doesn't it work now when it has worked perfectly up to about 2 weeks ago?
