Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

Hello;

I often get this error message on various well known websites. Today it is Ebay. I turn off blockers, with no luck. I also check if this is a problem with Safari, but Safari accesses the same site and page with no problem. I've tried turning off all add-ons, but doesn't make any difference.

Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server.

Reference #1.c568dc17.1649623980.20e43520

Another similar issue is Craigslist. I check it every morning and shortly after being on a main search page of results and suddenly as I am trying to access a link, I will end up in a white screen. The message will be that my account has been blocked, please contact us. I have, and there has never been a response.

I discovered accidentally that by clearing my cache, that doing so will temporarily return access again and I can browse some more, at least for a few minutes then it occurs again. This is a daily event. I have instead taken to using Safari to access Craigslist as I have not had this problem with it. Again, I've given CL permissions, turned off blocks, etc. But nothing helps.

I'm at a loss. I like Firefox and have been using it for years as it allows for things Safari doesn't and it is also faster.

Thanks so much.

Dear Firefox Community

I’m a Mac user. I’ve been a happy Firefox user for about eight years or more, with few problems. The only main one has been the refusal of Firefox to update automatically, even though I’ve ticked the box in preferences for this to happen so I always have to update by restarting Firefox manually and downloading it again.

I’m currently using Firefox 78.8.0esr. It needs updating, and I’ve tried about six or seven times over the last 6 weeks (most recently to Firefox 90.0.2dmg). Every time I do this, however, Firefox loses memory of me - and all my bookmarks (you’ll understand that after eight years there are a few hundred of these) disappear. I’ve copied them in in various ways (most recently by importing my Firefox bookmarks from 78.8.0 into Safari and then into Firefox 90 - and it works for about 12 hours or so, but then on the second or third time I open it reverts to the bookmarkless screen as if I’m a completely new user (with a really irritating picture of Soraya who is a Firefox fan and presumably is exempt the kind of problems I’m having).

Can you explain what is happening please, and how I can overcome this?

Thanks,

Steve Charters


edited email from public and search/spam bots view as this is a public community forum. Also moved this thread from iOS section (for iPhones/iPad) to desktop Firefox section as you are using a Mac.

In google the color choices are gone, and I can't highlight anything. On many websites many colors/graphics are gone. When I try to click in a box, nothing happens. I cannot even get the box below where I say yes to getting email when the question is answered. Twitter is a bunch of boxes and outlines now, and doesn't look at all as Twitter used to look. I have tried turning the Mac on and off. This is a desktop computer.

Hello community, please help:

I'm running a macbook Pro with macOS Big Sur Version 11.4

I'm using Firefox 91.0.1 (64-bit)

For some reason - maybe an update - websites and images are no longer loading correctly. I've attached some screenshots (comparing Chrome to Firefox) so you can see the issues.

Please help me get FF back to normal. Its basically useless for now.

Thanks, Jason

Hi volunteers, thank you.

I have been using Firefox for ever - on my macbook air, catalina, usig 91.01.01 Firefox version.

Until last week everything was fine - -then all of a sudden images and icons on some website were not loading properly, if at all. like www.microsoft.com and www.mandalina.com . The images are fine on Safari just not FF.

I erased FF and cleaned everything and uploaded a new browser, same problem.

Have I accidentally done something ?

Thanks

This only happens on my MacAir (not on my Imac nor on my Ipad) and only when on Firefox (correct on Safari). see the screen captures below. The first one is on Safari, the second on Firefox.

Firefox has been working great for me for many years. I prefer it to Safari on my iMac. Suddenly it has stopped displaying my news content from Newser on my Earthlink home page. I have troubleshooted with Earthlink and they are not at fault. Also, when I use the Safari browser, I have no problem viewing Newser content on my Earthlink home page. Firefox is saying that I am not connected to the internet, which is false. Any ideas how to get back my news content on Firefox? Thanks for any ideas.

cmd+numbers on alphanumeric keys should switch to respective tab (cmd+1 to 1st tab, cmd+5 to fifth...). With CZ keyboard layout on MacOS, cmd+1 does NOT switch to first tab, it Zooms In instead. No other browser (Edge, Safari, Opera, Orion) exhibits this behaviour. Other numbers work as expected.

FF 98.0.2 on Monterey 12.2.1.

How do I fix this? Thanks.
