All of a sudden - Both of these websites below give me 403 errors. I cleared the CACHE, rebooted, checked the other settings - Nothing has been changed and I have the most recent FF version installed - 84.0.2 Also both of these can be accessed from any other browser - so it must be a FF issue.

I have used both sites for a long time with no access issues.

All help appreciated! JM

I am busy doing my schoolwork and firefox keeps on crashing, namely by over-using the CPU on my laptop too much. I have tried numerous routes, such as reducing the number of browser extensions, using one of the certified performance-boosting add-ons to reduce CPU usage, I even tried limiting my tabs to a maximum of 10, all of them have failed to improve performance. This is not even mentioning the browser-induced bluescreen I just got a few minutes before writing this.

My employer uses the G-Suite at work. I use Firefox on my company computer and on my personal computers.

On the afternoon of Jan. 20, I lost access to Google Calendar. It only shows the dates and a crawling blue ribbon, as if it's trying to load my calendar and failing.

I ran some tests with my company computer and my personal laptop. Here's what I found:

  • I can access all the other G-suite components (Gmail, Contacts, Google Drive) from Firefox on both computers.
  • I have the latest version (84.0.2) on both computers.
  • I can access Google Calendar (and the rest of G-Suite) using Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Sounds like Google implemented something in Calendar that doesn't get along with Firefox. Has anyone else seen this issue?

When I paste an URL with a port number in the address field of a new tab and press return, then the port number gets removed.

Example: I paste "http://localhost:5707/typo3" and press return Firefox then tries to connect to "https://localhost/typo3/", which is SSL and has no port number.

How can I disable that behavior?

This happens with Firefox 84

I am running Firefox 84.0.2 on a Macbook Pro running Catalina 10.15.7. Since the new version of Firefox loaded on January 6, I have been having problems with how email from several vendors displays. If I call up Hotmail, for example, the page appears in teeny tiny type, so small that I have to pull the computer close to my face to read. And if I enlarge the page in order to read the left-most column, I can then only see the left-most column on my screen. I have to then scroll far to the right to find the actual message itself. I have tried the various "Display" options, but none of them have fixed this problem.

I switched over to Chrome as a test, and Hotmail is displaying normally there. So I conclude that there is some incompatibility between Firefox 84.0.2 and Catalina 10.15.7.

Any advice would be most welcome!

Thanks!

Since Firefox updated to 84.0.2, my Google Calendar (web access, no plugin) just hangs with the month displayed on the left and the blue "activity" bar at the top continually scrolling left to right, I never get any updates. If I fire up Chrome, it works fine. Has Firefox suddenly been locked out of Google applications? I've searched the suggestions, cleared all cookies, set general.useragent.compatMode.firefox to TRUE, no change in behavior.

Starting today (Jan 22, 2021), Google Calendars is not loading on Firefox (Windows 10 laptop, Firefox 84).

Clearing cookies fixes the problem, but the solution doesn't stick; I clear cookies, am able to open and load Calendar once, and then when I close the Calendar tab and reopen it I'm faced with the same problem.

Is this a known problem on Firefox's end? What can I do to fix this?

I want to use Google as my search engine. When I go to Google and type my search keywords into the bar, I get themessage that says, "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." The URL in the search bar is, "https://search-land.com/?pubid=30105&tid=1015&sid=10052&q=firefox.com&sig=2" If I allow, I end up with responses from Yahoo. If I do not allow the redirect, I end up with a blank screen.

I HATE Yahoo as a search engine. I have removed it as a search engine in the options for search, but I still end up there. I cannot get to Google. Can anyone help me with this?

Recently, emails from Nextdoor dot come stopped arriving at my Hotmail account. At about the same time, a Google Group was trying to send me an invitation. The moderators received an error message saying a setting was blocking it each time they tried.

It seems as though there are hundreds of webpages of settings between the three sites (Hotmail, Google Groups, Firefox). I've checked everywhere I can find, but if there is a particular page or setting to fix this, I cannot find it or recognize it.

Hotmail wants to examine my email settings, but I am uncomfortable allowing anyone access, and I don't think the problem is there. Google Groups tried its best but had only the one suggestion that did not help. I'm left with Firefox. I have changed some settings over time, but I don't remember them all, and nothing stands out when I look for a solution.

My Firefox browser is the most recent version, 84.0.2.

Any help you can suggest will be sincerely appreciated. Diana Penhaven

Hi all, I'd be grateful for some help with themes. I've been using Firefox and this specific feature for years and never had any issues with it. On my new PC, themes are suddenly looking like they have only been partially applied. Every theme so far has done this, I've checked all the regular customization settings and I'm stumped. As you can see in the screenshot, the theme applies to the tab and search bar levels, but not to the top level that shows the page title and system buttons. I know it's a cosmetic issue but it is driving me mad. Is this a "feature" in a new version of Firefox to make themes look like this? It looks more like a bug to me :(

I'm on Windows 10, brand new install on a new machine, I've only synced my Firefox tabs/bookmarks etc but it already looked like this before I did that or added my usual extensions. Any help or explanation why it's like this now would be appreciated!
