I was just recently searching through Firefox which was using chrome 1. I was searching 'front to front, ink transfer, $1 dollar bill paper currency, variety, error' (i may have used a (,) after '$1 dollar bill,' ⬅as see right here and/OR I also may have used an (s) after 'varieties, errors' ⬅as seen here in quotes. 2. I had advanced the pages approximately 3 times, so I was under the 3rd page under the above (3) search possible keyword string searches. 3.i had clicked on a websight which would be the exact last site in my browser history before exiting and closing tabs, & erasing the data in both apps of chrome and firefox, which I'm on android. 4.when I clicked the site the infamous you are a winner of a brand new_____virus I assumed and I got really panicky. 5.i tried to press back it would not let me the thing popped up again. VERY QUICKLY and panicky it was a pop up on a blue back ground and something similar to 'you are a winner Firefox customer', so it specifically said Firefox and not chrome. 6. I SAW THE BLUISH PURPLE BOX FROM FIREFOX that notifies that it blocks trackers,only this time it said, 'virus detected, 60% downloaded, may damage your SIM card', it said other stuff, but I was very panicked, so I didn't read the rest. 7. I clicked on the tabs button and closed both tabs. 8. went to settings. App manager. Then 'cleared data' in both chrome and firefox. 9.updated lookout app and secured. However, I was hoping that because I'm sharing whichever information with Firefox as per 'terms' I was hoping there is a possibility that since I was using chrome and firefox, that you would be able to fix this virus issues or report the information to whichever securities, y'all you for that kind of stuff, to fix it or may be track the people who have set it up etc. I am unaware of your prtcols with this kind of stuff, however, the screen did use the term 'firefox customer' so I don't know if they are targeting your customers or if it's programmed to just {fill in the blank here↪[_____]of whichever 'NAME' of the service provider}(of each victim)automatically, once clicked.

    • at that time I was not logged in with an account as i didnt know about doing that, but I was signed into chrome, i believe under ... @gmail.com although I did erase my app history...i guess I should check if my browser history was paused in my gmail account at the time. If so maybe it's possible to find the exact site if requesting information from Google although I'd assume that you probably have the same access, at least to my browser history since I was using Firefox. I just don't know if me deleting the app info on my device if it might somehow hinder your further access,but I also assume you probably have the information backed up in servers for this type of access. Please let me know if you need some thing else through email. I'm sure you probably have my device credentials and ip address etc, phone number, especially now that I had to make an account to access the contact services , my account is under ... @gmail.com, to refer to the account I just made, if possible can you please update me about this matter if it is at all possible, not to much trouble or time, I greatly appreciate any efforts that whomever these emails go to and the support departmeant for the efforts made in making the internet safe as well, I'm greatly appreciative, sincerely THANK YOU, soo much. Have a woderfull day and hopefully a productive iniative in this effort.Thanks

I am unable to log onto investor.vanguard.com using Firefox. It has worked fine until last week. I confirmed the username/password are correct (they work fine on my phone app and using the Microsoft browser). I contacted Vanguard and they said they have not had any reported issues on the website.

When I click on the LOGON icon, a blue halo appears around the icon, but I cannot complete the logon. All other icons on the home page work properly on Firefox, but the LOGON does not. Deleting cookies did not help.

Are other Firefox users experiencing this on Vanguard, and if so, is there a fix?

I'm using Firefox 94.0.1 on MacOS 12.0.1. When I visit www.tangerine.ca I see a screen that looks similar to a mobile device layout (attached). Not exactly the same, but containing elements such as the hamburger menu and others that don't normally appear on this page.

When I visit the same site on the same computer using the same browser in private viewing mode it displays correctly. It also displays correctly on other computers and using other browsers. The problem is isolated to Firefox in normal mode on one specific computer.

I've deleted all cookies and cleared the cache entries for the site but the problem persists.

Note that "Responsive Design Mode" is off.

Any ideas what is being cached/used to cause this? There must be one more piece of information that I need to find and remove.

Starting this AM, Instagram won't load (MacOS 11.6; Firefox 94.0.1) -I just get a greyed out IG icon. The problem does not happen either on Firefox Mobile or on Safari, or on any other website I've tried on the Mac.. The very first time I tried this morning I got an error message about some technical problem with connecting, but now don't even get that. I have closed and restarted Firefox and rebooted the Mac. (Also turned off any adBlockers -- although when Firefox *thinks* it's finished loading IG there are no ad servers or trackers shown.)

Firefox cannot connect to any academic journal websites (Google Scholar, JSTOR, SIAM, ScienceDirect, etc.). It can load any other type of website that I've tried. These sites can be opened on a different browser on the same computer. Things I've tried: -Disabling add-ons (starting Firefox in safety mode and trying to open these websites) -Clearing cache/cookies -Making sure time/date on my system is correct I do not have any third-party antivirus installed and use Windows Defender. I have also: -Performed a full scan to try to detect malware This is a relatively recent issue, as I was able to access these websites in the past. I am truly confused as to why such a specific type of content suddenly cannot be accessed and would appreciate any help.

Yesterday I completely formatted my computer and when I tried opening Firefox today, I got the "sec_error_unknown_issuer" error. This is not the first time that happens, last time I formatted my PC I also got the same problem, and I fixed it by disabling Enterprise Roots in about:config. But whenever I try opening YouTube, the website it's completely ruined, the sidebar (where my subscriptions and playlist are located) doesn't load and neither does the videos from the bottom. Last time this happened, I completely gave up and switched to other browser, some months later without touching anything, I opened Firefox again and somehow it was loading the sidebar. But this time I dont want to wait again, and I don't know if it will "fix" by itself. I tried opening Firefox in safe mode and everything, and had no success.
