A virus file, from a website, keeps automatically downloading each time that I open my Firefox browser. I have tried clearing the cookies and history but the file keeps showing up as downloaded but the actual file is not in the general download folder? I only see where it download and says downloaded in the download list. The file contains a virus and also Firefox states that its dangerous. I never clicked to open the file.

How to stop this from keep automatically downloading when I open my browser? Please help ASAP Thanks

The file is: 7z2201-X64.msi download tracked to: 7-zip.org Virus website address: www.7-zip.org/a/7z2201-x64.msi

Hello. Firefox browser. Windows 11 interface is freezing. Completely randomly. And exactly when using Firefox. The sound works at the same time. Only a complete forced shutdown of the PC helps. The keyboard does not respond, the pointer moves but nothing is pressed.

How can I be? What log to send? Firefox crashes have not been.

For probably years now, I have this problem on my laptop. WhatsApp Web can't load any stickers - not that I send, receive or any in my drawer.

I can't understand why it's specifically WhatsApp and specifically the stickers, but I tried to fix it: - I logged off and on to WhatsApp Web, didn't help. - I disabled then removed all extensions, didn't help. - I've removed all profile data, didn't help. - I reinstalled Firefox after wiping the AppData folder, didn't help.

This problem has persisted over updates and doesn't happen in Chrome - stickers download there just fine. It also doesn't happen on any other computer I use with Firefox.

I tried to investigate the cause of the problem. First off, the sticker HTTP request on the network tab fails with the weird error status NS_ERROR_INTERCEPTION_FAILED or NS_BINDING_ABORTED (both appear). The console says the following:

Failed to load ‘https://mmg.whatsapp.net/v/t62.15575-24/31187942_602693368536193_4171257086940206138_n.enc?ccb=11-4&oh=01_AdSo-95lTiTT9NthZMidBB00c8tI8PlEuBlxvoIsC9rkuA&oe=6558CC66&_nc_sid=000000&hash=PDQ3jJY4Svmj3ZJIIkyTzdyKEeyiyBLg64CuZRuaEIM%3D&mode=auto&mms-type=sticker&__wa-mms=’. A ServiceWorker passed a promise to FetchEvent.respondWith() that rejected with ‘TypeError: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource.’.

(Reason: CORS request did not succeed). Status code: (null).

I thought it was a CORS thing, but it doesn't seem to actually be the reason - after googling, "CORS request did not succeed" just seems to be a failed request and unrelated to CORS. I ran Wireshark to sniff the request, and what I found was that Firefox sends an OPTIONS request (even though it doesn't log it in the Network tab), the OPTIONS request is answered with a 200 OK, and then this error occurs.

This convinces me that this is an internal problem with Firefox or with some other program on my computer that interferes specifically with Firefox. Any ideas as to what could be the issue? I'll be happy to supply more logs if needed.

I have used Firefox for email, web browsing etc for many years without issue, until about 2 weeks ago. I was using gmail to send an email and a small attachment would not fully upload (locking up at 75%). I looked at gmail help and the recommendation was to flush cookies and cache. I did this and have had problems ever since. GMail: Connecting to gmail is a hit or miss affair - it mostly does not work at all but on rare occasions it does connect. If it does load it is very slow, often I cannot change tabs or access labels. I cannot switch inboxes to other accounts. I mostly cannot send emails (though very occasionally I can). When trying to switch accounts it mostly just says something went wrong but once or twice it has brought up the list of accounts but I cannot select one. I can rarely send an email - it is very slow, it says working but mostly nothing happens. Sometimes an Oops 01 error message appears. I have not been able to attach a file to any email I have tried to send. I am seem to be receiving emails without issue. [Gmail mostly works on Chrome but sometimes I have trouble sending].

Google Search: When I use Google as a search engine I often get only a white screen but it will sometimes bring up a screen of search results however when I click on the link either nothing happens or it is really slow to load the page - once the page loads navigating around the site is normal.

I have no issues when using Duck Duck Go or if I type the address into the address bar or it is a book marked site.

YouTube: I can rarely connect to Youtube using Firefox - it mostly just sits at a white screen with the address in the address bar but nothing happening. If it does connect it is incredibly slow at searching or changing screens. I often get a message saying I am not connected to the internet but I am because I have other things open and operating.

Google docs: I cannot access google docs using Firefox but can using Chrome.

I have no issues with online gaming or streaming sites. It seems to be only google related services that are giving me grief.

Hello!

I have the problem that every of my most visited sites are loading normal fast except for YouTube.

YouTube needs about 2 to 3 seconds to load the site itself and the thumbnails like "lagging" pictures which are rendering real slow while my other most visited sites like Twitch, Reddit or Twitter are loading in about 1 second or less. (i have installed the "Page Load Time" addon to check that).

I have only installed uBlock and nothing else.

Dear Community,

today I received an announcement from Mozilla that Firefox Sync becomes Mozilla Sync. Included are services like VPN, Pocket, Monitor and Relay.

I think it would be super great, if there is also a possibility to synchronize Thunderbird settings and apps. If you run multiple devices with Thunderbird, there would be a great benefit.

Best wishes, Adrian

Recently, when I try to play video clips, or click on "Live Updates" on CNN.com, the videos will not play (no play icon), and when clicking on "live Updates, the screen flashes to that page but then goes blank. Is this a bug in the recent updates to Firefox, or is something going on with CNN? This is the only site that I'm experiencing this with. Thank you in advance. Cheers.
