I have a home website that was written using php well over 10 years ago. Except for family updates, it has changed little and displayed correctly using firefox and other browsers. Firefox is my preferred browser. A couple of months ago, it stopped displaying correctly in firefox but continues to display correctly w/o issues in Edge, and other browsers.

I note it displays in a basic form in firefox, links to other pages and content are shown and operable, but not displayed (correctly) as it does in Edge and others. I am on the latest version of Win Pro 10.

I posted the problem the end of August and received a number of suggestions. I went through the steps suggested (using troubleshoot amongst other suggestions) and none of the suggestions resolved the issue. My suspicion is that something in a relatively recent update of firefox has issues with my php based code. I do not use a "web tool" but write the source myself. I started writing websites with html decades ago and got the bug to use php years back.

If anyone has the interest (or curiosity) to look at the website in firefox and edge and my source code and see if they see the issue I would be glad provide the link to my website.

When I try to open Facebook , I get the following message Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.facebook.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Facebook does not load. Error message: "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can. Go Back Facebook © 2020 · Help Center" I know it's not Facebook as works fine on my Android devices. Firefox has been very unstable for months on Windows 10! Fix it!! Egad!! I got locked out of my Banks website. Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and problem solved. I am refusing updates cuz I think it was an update that caused the problem.

It seems like something has changed recently, I don't remember having such problem before. As you can see on one of my pictures I have browser settings changed to always ask what to do with every file extension, yet encountering link to pdf file it loaded automaticly in special frame instead of showing just link to it. I included pictures of this frame, settings and another screenshot of the same website in Opera browser with similar settings where nothing loads itself.

Link to the problematic comment with auto-loading pdf: https://kodluch.wordpress.com/2021/09/30/30-09-2021-syria-2187-dzien-sprzatania-swiata/#comment-115906

Is there any way to block such pdf-frames in current version of Firefox?

Suppose I have a "policies.json" file in the "distribution" subdirectory of my Firefox installation.

And suppose "policies.json" file contains this:

{

 "policies": {
     "WebsiteFilter": {
         "Block": [
           "youtube.com",
           "www.youtube.com",
           "http://www.youtube.com",
           "https://www.youtube.com",
         ]
     }
 }

}


Now if I type "youtube.com" in the address bar, it shows "Your organisation has blocked access to this page or web site." It means firefox blocks "youtube.com" correctly. Meanwhile the url in the address bar is "https://www.youtube.com/."

But if I remove "https://www." from "https://www.youtube.com/" in the address bar (Not retype), I can actually visit "youtube.com." It means somehow the webfilter is not working properly.

This issue exists in ubuntu and macos with version 92.0(64-bit).

Does anyone have the same problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi! Netflix used to work great in Firefox on my Mac OS X 10.11.6 macbook. Now I've been getting an error message saying "Looks like your browser is no longer supported" when trying to play video on Netflix and it won't play. I noticed that it self-updated a couple times over the last few days but these updates did not solve the problem. I'm hoping that this problem can be fixed so that I can keep watching Netflix on Firefox, as I find Chrome and other browsers are very slow and laggy compared to Firefox. Thanks :)
