Hi. I'm trying to log on to a particular company's website and keep getting the message :

"The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: 11373612934950299921" (with a different number each time)

I've cleared my histories, cache and cookies. My Firefox updates itself.

Going to other sites is fine.

I've spoken to the company, they don't know what's happened and are not having this problem themselves or with any other customers.

Which administrator might it be referring to? Can anyone help? (I'm not sure whether to click on 'Share Data' below; let me know if this would be helpful.) Many thanks.

We are wanting to move our intranet users from IE to Firefox but we have some places where we want to be able to open local (or network) files or directories. I have found quite a few references in Stack Overflow and otherwise but most of them are quite old and none of the old techniques seem to work with the current version of Firefox Quantum (v68 at the time of writing).

The Local Filesystem Links extension seems to work well but I would rather not rely on an extension, particularly one that also requires installation of an addon module, if possible. Can anybody tell me how to access the local filesystem from a webpage in Firefox by just changing settings in about: config? Or is this just not possible anymore?

I am hoping to get something like <a href="file://///networkdrive/directory"> working if possible

With my advanced years I spend far too much time browsing Imgur and Reddit but I like doing so - they're relaxing, informative, sometimes provocative sites and they suit me well. However of late there have been problems. Firefox (since it's the only browser I can use, thanks to Firefox seemingly blocking others) seems to be disabling most NSFW pictures and videos and now won't even play GIF links on those two sites. (Weirdly enough however I can watch porn on other sites, so where's the problem?) Sure, this might be a European setting but I can find no other information to help me unlock this setting so any information will be appreciated. And yes, I've emptied all my cookies, etc. but to no avail.

So I have recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8, and I installed Firefox. For the most part it works fine but I have noticed, for some reason, some webpages do not load properly. It looks as if only the HTML of the site has loaded.

Now I can easily fix this by clearing the cache, but only for the same problem to occur a few hours later and this is really annoying me. The problem still happens in safe mode, and other browsers seem to work fine. I have also tried reinstalling but not a full reset.

Here is a link to what Facebook looks like when this happens: http://oi40.tinypic.com/2gwcbxk.jpg

Please could you help me solve this?

I'm trying to log into a hotmail.co.uk account via mail.live.com and keep getting the above error. I have cleared recent history and disabled Adblock but no success. I'm using Windows 7 SP1 and Firefox 5.0:

The page isn't redirecting properly

 Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
       
 This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept
   cookies.

The error page then received is as follows:

Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<configuration>

   <system.web>
       <customErrors mode="Off"/>
   </system.web>

</configuration>


Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<configuration>

   <system.web>
       <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
   </system.web>

</configuration>

Would appreciate any help you can give. Many thanks, Ben

When I start Firefox, my selected start page does not show; FunMoods.com shows up as Http://srart.funmoods.com and I cannot get rid of it. I've gone to help/troubleshooting and deleted it from the menu but it still shows up. At the same time I got this problem, I started getting windows saying javascript had problems. I also disabled 2 javascript addons from the troubleshooting site. Again, that did not help, I still get the javascript messages - up to 10 at a time. Everytime I press OK, the next one pops up. Even after the javascript windows appear and I have delt with them, much - but no all - of the time, my tabs do n ot work and I have to shut Firefox down and start all over again. This is very annoying. Hope someone can help my. I dred going back to Internet Explorer.

When I have Firefox 67 (FF) set as my default browser in Windows 10, embedded hyperlinks in third party applications won't open in FF. If I change my default browser to Edge or Chrome these links will open in either application but if I switch back to FF as the default browser they won't open again in FF.

Is there a setting somewhere I could have accidentally set when implementing the privacy features within FF or is there some other reason someone can assist with as to why this would start happening.

Thanks.

Youtube pages viewed in Firefox (36.0.1) on my Mac Mini running OSX 10.9.5 display some, but not all, of the text in Chinese. Pages display correctly in Safari and Chrome. I have reinstalled and refreshed Firefox with no change.

Changing View/Character Encoding to Western changes the display to English characters, but the words are gibberish.

See attached screenshots.

Last night I updated the Java on my computer to 7. Ever since then I've been unable to play certain games at Pogo.com.

As Firefox has disabled the earlier versions, I'm no longer able to play certain games.

XP with FF 13...I refuse to use IE or Chrome.

I've tried all suggestions from here and Pogo, but nothing is working.

All plug-ins and extensions are up-to-date.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this issue?
