This add-on/extension (and my Fast Fox spelling may be off) is bedeviling me. Apparently part of the latest Firefox update, it seems to appear at startup with our Macbook Air and GMail, asking if it should continue. Cannot find the rascal to get rid of it. Please advise.

Hello,

Recently an adult site I go to, which features videos, isn't working: I can get to site, but nothing shows up on the screen. I've always had 'strict' privacy and adblocking protections, but something seems to have changed. This started happening maybe three weeks ago?

I did follow Mozilla instructions, and clicked on the 'shield' next to the address, changed 'enhance tracking' to off for this site. But that didn't solve the problem. What would be the next thing to try?

Thanks in advance!

I have Firefox 96.0.1. As of this morning, images will no longer load on any websites. The only thing that has changed since yesterday is that I followed some advice from the Washington Post on how to prevent scam emails. I have spent nearly two hours searching for and following advice to restore images on Firefox, but nothing has worked. I need more direct assistance!

Hope someone can help.

When I use full screen for some websites, it darkens after about 2 - 5 seconds and my cursor also becomes harder to move. This only started to happen recently.

It is not my computer settings, I've tested this in Safari and it works normally. This makes videos unwatchable. It is like a dark screen suddenly appears over the video and only comes off if i move the cursor. It happens with netflix and prime but not youtube, udemy.

When I'm using the Firefox browser a small pop-up box often appears saying "Must provide password." If I type in my actual password and hit Enter, the box just pops up again. If I hit the Cancel button it goes away and doesn't seem to affect my use of the browser. Is there a way to get it to stop popping up?

I'm having problems opening saved (archived) Facebook pages. The problem is the page opens without formatting or layout, just text and images.

I've had this problem before when I was using Firefox 68. The solution was to roll back a security patch by doing the following as proposed by jscher2000:

You can roll back the patch as follows if you want to see what difference it makes:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste uniq and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the privacy.file_unique_origin preference to switch the value from true to false

That had worked until recently. I checked "privacy.file_unique_origin" and its still has a value of 'false' but the webpages are not opening properly, even ones I saved over the last few years.

What can I do?

I have Firefox on an old MacBook which hasn't had its macOS updated for a couple of years, and a new Mac running up-to-date Monterey. In both, Firefox has just developed the same problems at the same time: pages won't load, and the program won't shut down normally -- I have to use force quit. Safari works fine and I've tried all the usual solutions, bar deleting and reloading the app. I don't want to do that yet since the problem is the same on two different computers and an old and a new macOS. Since Firefox has recently updated, has that caused the problem?


edited iOS to macOS as iOS is a mobile OS for iPhones and moved thread to (desktop) Firefox section.

I am trying to increase the size of the font of our bookmarks on our MacBook Air laptop as they are hard to read on the smaller screen. I tried "zoom" and increasing font size in settings but that did not affect the bookmarks sidebar; only the primary web pages. I tried an add-on but could not get it to work. I did a few online searches and it appears to be a common issue but I could not find a solution so I thought I'd ask a question. Thanks for any advice that you can provide.

I am getting the "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue" error on websites that are clearly not security threats. Examples are twitch.tv, youtube.com, gmail.com and since I use duckduckgo, I cant even search something because it redirects me to the website duckduckgo.com/(whatever i searched), which also creates the error. I don't believe it is a network error because it allows me to visit all of these websites when I am using the chrome browser. Sometimes when I get the error, it has the yellow border around the screen so I can click on advanced options and click "go to the website anyways", and sometimes that option is not there. Also, the error will happen on and off for some websites. For example, yesterday I wasn't able to access gmail.com because the glitch was happening on it, but today I am able to visit the site just fine.

Somehow Airbnb fails to load after numerous attempts. Clearing cache etc. doesn’t do the job. Shutting down the VPN doesn’t do the job either. The message I get from their website is (in Dutch) that’s something went wrong.

“Unfortunately your request couldn’t be executed due to a server error. Maybe maintenance is taking place currently on Airbnb or something is wrong with your connection. Refresh the page and try again.”
