FF is using networks that I cannot identify its usage and appear to be built in. Example FF connects to ec2-34-218-161-109.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com

Does FF provide a method to identify networks it uses?

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

Please continue here: [/questions/1292692]
I'm using Firefox with a mac with OSX El Capitan 10.11.6. I've used it for many years, with no problem accessing streaming radio and archived radio. Now, I'm beginning to not be able to have access. I'm wondering if I need to update to a newer version but am loathe to do so for fear of unintended consequences. Any ideas?

I posted a similiar post but it did not take the link when I tried to enter ec2-52-89-235-93.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com.

The previous FF forum link is "what is ec2-52-27-162-24.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com" The new values after performing a clear of cache is as follows

ec2-52-89-235-93.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com port 54977 104.16.248.249 port 54976

I'm using a completely clean (reinstalled) version of firefox. I'm not logged into a profile. I'm still having the same problem.

If I go onto twitter for the first time, it loads fine and I can move around pages.

As soon as I leave the site, then return, none of the internal twitter timelines load - I get the twitter message 'something has gone wrong'.

If I delete all my cookies and revisit twitter, it works. But again, if I leave the site and come back immediately, the problem comes back and nothing loads.

Anyone experienced this/know what I can do?

Thanks

I am having the same problem as https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1459780 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1479607

I had accidentally deleted the email address I use from my email server before trying to sign back in to Firefox Sync. I added it back, and made sure that it works. However, it is impossible for me to sign in at all any more because I'm getting the "Your Email was just Returned. Mistyped Email?" error.

Please remove my email address from the bounce list so that I can sign in.

Hi and hello!

I am on a Macbook Pro laptop from 2015

Whenever I attempt to view something off Netflix I keep getting error code F7121-3078 :(

Similarly, when I attempt to view Amazon Prime Video it says "We're experiencing a problem playing this video."

I followed instructions, I updated my mac itself to Catalina 10.15.3 and reinstalled Firefox so it should be 100% up to date.

still didn't work.

I read somewhere in this forum from a January post if I open Firefox in 32 bit mode after selecting command + i that it should work but I didn't have that option. I opted for the low resolution setting I saw and not only do the videos still not play but now it looks like I need glasses more than I really do :p I'll be changing that back asap.

What's the vibe check on this? Is there a resolution or a possible ETA of a resolution? Anything?

Any info would be grand!

I'm using Firefox 68.0.1 on macOS Mojave 10.14.5. When I go full screen, the tabs and address bar remain at the top of the screen. I can't make them go away. I've tried:

- Installing plugins (I tried a couple) - Disabling Add-ons (Safe mode) - Resetting Firefox - Disabling hardware acceleration (and restart browser) - Using different techniques to go full screen (Cmd+Shift+F, Cmd+Ctrl+F, Zoom menu) - Scrolling or clicking in the canvas to ensure focus

No matter what, the tab bar and address bar remain on the screen (see attached screenshot). I've also attached my browser config (filtered on "full"). Is there any way to get a full-screen experience in Firefox?

Recently, I am no longer able to print an attachment from Gmail. The print icon simply brings up a dialog box to choose between opening or saving a pdf (it defaults to pdf even if the attachment is a word doc, image, or spreadsheet). This is a recent development and happens on both of my mac computers. I have started Firefox without any add-ons enabled, but it didn't help.
