Hi there. I am trying to log into accounts and been asked to provide passwords. Something has changed. Previously if I was to go to a landing page (FT, The Telegraph) it would log in automatically. I do have saved log ins, but there is another issue. The website thinks I am logging in from a new browser, which often means I need to go through a further verification process, for example receiving a text with an authorisation code. I have been through the options multiple times, with no fix. Many thanks, Mark

Hi,

I have installed Firefox on my second machine at work, and I find it impossible to use it as it does not connect to many of my company's services, but also on many mainstream sites.

For example, when I try to load sites like theguardian.com I get a window with the warning: "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue", for others like nytimes.com the message reads "Warning:Potential Security Risk Ahead". The lists of sites where these happens is long.

The thing is that on my other machine at work these sites are working perfectly. I have just loaded Firefox on the new machine, I have not added any extensions or plugins yet.

I am about to loose the old work PC, and it would be a shame if on my new machine I had to use Chrome!

Any help is appreciated Thanks Alex

PS I am writing this from my own laptop and not from the work PC

I visited a website that allows you to download youtube videos.

Every time I click in the box to paste the URL or hit the submit button, I get a new tab open with a ad in it. Some times it is an ad for a porn site.

I tried using opendns to fix the problem. I have not gotten far enough with them yet, but I don't want to block sites.(like get a new window that says this site was blocked is NOT good enough..) I want to block any tab from opening in the first place, unless I deliberately choose to open a new tab myself..

Can you add a feature?

  • Do not let this site open tabs or new windows
  • Do not let this site open links to other sites.
  • Do not let this site do infinite page forwarding..(site you can't back out of)
  • Do not let sites force you to agree to (cookie terms extortion)

Thanks in advance...

Hi there,

I'm building my first website. When I log in (jam-works.org/wp-admin) the very right end of the top bar in the 'dashboard' menu shows a blank, empty box where my avatar or pic or Gravatar or whatever should be ("1of2" below). The profile section from which to change this displays that same blank square with a link: "You can change your profile picture on Gravatar".

Which I've done. When I open jam-works.org/wp-admin with another browser, it displays the picture ("2of2" below), but I really don't want to use other browsers. I tried Firefox 'Options', 'Privacy & Security' and 'clear data', rebooted but no luck.

Can someone please help? I'm older than technology, so please type slowly so I can understand. Seriously. I just found out that an "Ethernet" isn't a thing to catch the Ether Bunny with, sooooo, yeah - please kinda spell it out for me if you can.

Thanks!

Is there a way to force a webpage to prompt for future notifications, e.g, a new article published in a news site? It is possible to receive desktop notifications on my Mac from Firefox from webpage www.lsm.lv, however, I never have received a prompt whether I would like to receive mobile notifications on my Android. I have deleted cookies and site data multiple times but to no success. I must add that notifications are working properly on other browsers.

I am continuing to have issues going to this web site. www.goldtonemusicgroup.com/goldtone. Works great on chrome but firefox fails miserably. The page needs to be downsized and when you click on a link it may open it but it may be behind it but I am never able to get to it. I think possibly the last update something must have messed up. I used to be able to load it but not anymore. I have to use another browser to work with this web site. Other web sites seem to be ok. Thanks for any info.

For the past week I have been getting the follow error message when ever I try to access www.kobo.com or www.kobo.ca (I have accessed these websites from this laptop for several years, but all of a sudden I am having this problem):

"Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.kobo.com. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I CANNOT contact the website owners as I cannot access their websites at ALL. What to do?????????

Hello, I have a problem with the screen share pop up that appears when a website tries to access the screen. When I try to share the entire screen on Google Meet, as soon as I click Share screen > Full screen, the button grays out and nothing is shared. The pop up that allows you to select the screen to share never opens.

The only way to reset Meet's "Share screen" button is by exiting and joining the Google Meet room again. I've checked that meet.google.com's screen permission is set to "Always ask" and not "Blocked". How can I fix this problem?

Videos are all played with sound at once...

I have a website I built with ruby on rails with a bunch of posts where people can post images and videos. The videos are coded with :controls => true, :loop => true, :autoplay => true, muted: true, so they are playing as soon as the website is loaded on mute. The problem I have now is that when using firefox, ALL of the videos get played WITHOUT MUTE TOGETHER when the user goes to any other page. So whenever the user for example goes to the "about" page, the videos of the homepage are still playing on a loop with 100% volume and there is no way to stop it except for closing the website. This isnt really supporting for my user experience if you know what I mean.

What may also be worth mentioning is that I have a script which makes videos only play when on the user actually scrolled to their position.^

If you are interested in tinitus, you can try it out and listen to a concert of earrape videos (im not responsible for any braindamage). https://www.darkerr.co/posts This issue is not happening for Chrome, Safari or Edge. It must be something exclusively for firefox. Does anybody know how to fox this problem? Thank you so much!
