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.”

Anybody knows what to do please?

Hello, I've followed Firefox's invitation to install and update the browser on my Mac. Unfortunately the new version is not compatible with OS 10 El Capitan, my operating system, so now I can't use Firefox at all. How I do get the old version back?

Thank you, Lars

I've been teaching my young daughter how to use a computer, and we chose firefox as a browser she can use to do some things online - in particular she's been doing Math lessons using https://www.themathsfactor.com

After the past few weeks I've noticed that sound from that site no longer seems to work after 1 or 2 days. Embedded videos work, but sound where the site has a character that tells her what to do - stops working. If I restart the browser it starts working again - however refreshing the page does not. This is something recent, as older versions of firefox did not seem to do this. I'm wondering if there is some change/memory leak that might cause this?

OK, this is a little funny. It used to be, if I wanted to open a website, I just clicked on the URL, and Firefox would open with it. Now (and I'm using 95.0.2 on iMac Big Sur), when I click on the the URL NOTHING HAPPENS if a Firefox window isn't already open. That is, you have to have a Firefox window already open in order for the website to appear. For example, in the Bookmark library, if a Firefox window isn't already open, clicking on a website there won't open it. You need to right click it and select OPEN. Now, Firefox is selected already as the default browser for the system.

How do I fix this? I mean, how do I get it back the way it used to be?

Hello,

I have the site espn.com bookmarked and for the last month or so it has been opening it's various foreign sites instead of the united states version when I click on the bookmark tab. It will switch to the UK and Mexico sites randomly when I click on the tab. The address is saved as the US version (espn.com) when this happens so I can't figure out why it's doing it. It doesn't matter if I use a vpn that says I'm in the US or just my regular internet provider in the US, the site keeps changing what country it chooses to open with. I noticed that every time I click the tab it will cycle between the various different sites for each country even though as I said before, the bookmark is set for espn.com. It makes no sense as none of my other bookmarks do this and it doesn't do it when I use Safari's browser. Is there anything on my end I can do to get this to stop or is it coming from espn.com's end? Thank you for your time and help. :)

I cannot log into aa.com (American Airlines) with Firefox but Chrome works fine. Error message that their site is down for maintenance but it is up and working just fine with other browsers.

I have cleared cache, cookies, history, etc. HTTPS always is not enabled. Firefox is at the latest version. I have restarted the browser.

Yesterday the You Tube display changed for no apparent reason. The thumbnails got bigger...only 4 to a page and the display after clicking on the video results in most of the screen being filled by the video....suggestions are now in a thin column down the right hand side. Comments can only be accessed by clicking an almost hidden button at the bottom of the screen and I can no longer see or access the download button provided by firefox extensions. Both safari and chrome are showing the display as it always has been...ie normal and usable. Does anyone have any idea of what is going on. Even though I took screenshots in jpg to show exactly what has happened I cant upload them as the files are still too big Thanks in advance

Hi, Happy New Year!

Finally I took a deep breath and hoping for no major surprises and bugs, I finally updated Firefox to the latest version.

I have a few questions:

1. As advised, every month I backed up info in the profile, following https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles Is there an up-to-date version of these instructions as the prior ones no longer work (menus were changed, Troubleshooting works differently, etc.).

2. Does the "Allow for session" option for cookies work and if so, what does it do?

3. Is there a way to change the way the TABs look now (washed out, white, very hard to see and differentiate, hard to see which one is the one I am looking at). I am wondering what is the perceived benefit of this change. In the old version I had, the tabs very clearly delineated and easy to see.

4. Where can I find a listing of the enhancements and major changes of the versions released since mid year 2021, from an end user perspective?

Thanks.

When I start to move a tab to another location, a small box attached to the bottom of the tab appears with the same info that's on the tab. If I move the tab to a different location, many of my tabs disappear and I have to find them in bookmarks to put them back. Is there any way to remove that little box attached to the bottom of the tab?

Hi,

A few days ago Firefox on my Mac laptop (macOS Catalina) suddenly stopped suggesting sites I'd visited in the drop down on the address bar and is no longer auto-completing as I type into the address bar. It is set to auto-suggest based on pages from history (I unset and re-set that in settings), and to remember history. However, I noticed today that the history is near blank (it has 3 tabs from a local network page I visited but nothing from outside my local network).

I also noticed today that the copy on my laptop is no sharing with my other instances (work computer, phone). I can send tabs to it, but the tabs that are showing as being "current" when I look at other machines are from before this happened.

I've tried rebooting and restarting Firefox, but I can't seem to find any fixes for it.

Loving the picture-in-picture feature. I googled to see if there was a keyboard shortcut to pop out the video and saw that ctrl+shift+] or cmd+shift+] should do the trick, but on my mac (firefox 95.0.2) the ctrl version seems to do nothing while the cmd version goes to next tab, which is redundant with ctrl+tab. I'm wondering if the cmd+shift+] shortcut is being overriden accidentally, or if there's a different keyboard shortcut for this on mac? cheers
