All of a sudden I can't open a certain website. I opened the website a few days ago with no problem and have been using the site for years. (I checked to see if the site is down but it's not.) I googled how to unblock websites in Firefox and nothing I've tried works. I disabled Trackers for the website and I cleared my Cookies. I added the Firefox uBlock extension a few weeks ago to stop constant website popups (after I tried resetting Firefox) and I turned uBlock off for this certain website but I still can't access the website. I also installed Mozilla VPN last week. I'm using Firefox 122.0.1. What could be the problem?

I play a game at Vegas World. It's basically a free online slot machine site. I have played it for years with Chrome. Recently switched to Firefox. Playing an auto spin slot game, Firefox gets slow and hangs after about 25 spins. Chrome will go for 10,000 spins. So, Firefox is useless on game sites. I don't really expect a fix or solution. And I don't actually expect to use Firefox by the end of the day.

I got a notice from Mozilla that Firefox was updated over night. Now when I hit a link it goes to edge instead of Firefox. In the Firefox settings, it still says that Firefox is my default browser. I do not want to use Edge. How do I fix this. I have used Firefox for many years.

"Your browser is being managed by your organization" is on the top of my settings page and it preventing me from using some of my streaming services. I am at my home, don't work at a job where I would ever be on a network, what the heck? It is some name I don't even know. Did I get hacked? Is it a virus? Nothing I have seen on here so far has worked, and I AM NOT A LINUX USER. (After looking at other answers, seems to be a problem with Linux.) I am on Windows 11. Thanks!

Firefox sending multiple requests with useragent Mozilla 5.0

I'm getting locked out of a site I visit regularly. Their tech support sent me this reason:

‘Firefox browser (or some extension) is sending multiple requests to us with the browser User-agent "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)"' This can't be happening from the normal usage, so we automatically block them because they are not the requests from genuine Googlebot crawler.

The possible cause might be using some browser extension that makes the request with Googlebot user agent.
Please make sure to disable all extensions (and remove that you are no longer using) and let me know so we could check on our end if that stopped?"

How do I find what is doing this and how can I fix it?

Yes I have tried everything that has been written or suggested on how to fix the fixup. Still nothing has worked. About:config everything has been set to false that has been suggested. It seems this latest version wants to eliminate our ability to customize and you even know how dangerous this is.

Hi

I am a web dev, and need FF help on this. All of my sync data is gone, I sign out and back in twice, I checked the profiles there's only one, all of my bookmarks, plugins & extensions everything is gone. Please I need those bookmarks some of them were very important to me I can't lose those.

Back-story: I recently want to try two distro that I had been on my list from quite a while now, VanillaOS & BlendOS, I worked on those for 3 or 4 days, before switching back to Arch, on both of them everything was working fine, I had all of my data. On Arch I had to reset my password because I forgot. Then the issue started, at first I thought maybe my internet was slow or something but now on the 2nd my data is still not synced.

I even signed out and back in, I checked the profiles(screenshot below). What should I do?
