I have been using Firefox for as long as I can remember, and I have always used Yahoo as my home page. The newly updated Firefox refuses to load my.yahoo.com. Yes, I went to settings and checked to make sure the Yahoo URL is listed. I can even type the URL in a new tab and it refuses to load. Look like I will have to switch to Edge after all. It is working fine.

When I try to log into Facebook the whole screen is white with the text all over to the left side. Has anyone had this and how do I fix it? Oh, it does the same if I try any other web browser also.

Hi everyone.

Thanks in advance for your help, and apologies if this question was covered elsewhere.

My graduate school uses Duo for authentication. When I log into the intranet on my laptop, I'm prompted to send a "push" notification to my phone. There's the option to "remember this device for 30 days", referring in this case to my laptop. But even when I check the box, I'm asked again to authenticate via phone each time I use the intranet on my laptop, seemingly despite having sought to "remember this device" previously. This is inconvenient, as I'm frequently without my phone.

How can I get the "remember" feature to take effect?

Again, thanks for your help -- and apologies for any indelicacies in my attempted description of the situation.

Possibly a question that has been asked before or could be extracted from the shortcuts page, but wording of the problem probably varies quite a bit.

In the address bar, when I want to go in one click to the first result that is not a search suggestion, is there a way to accomplish that (instead of arrow down for x amount of times)? A subpar alternative would then be to disable search suggestions of course.

This happened a few minutes ago. I was on Twitter and suddenly all the links there were underlined. That happens on this website as well. I went on Firefox settings to uncheck "Underlined links" box, they are still underlined, and specifically in the Firefox settings website, random letters were underlined when they weren't before, they do not lead to any links though. The underlined links take me to the right location. This doesn't happen in other websites such as Tumblr or Youtube for some reason.

I thought it could be a malware, this happened right after I downloaded an app called Rave to my PC. However I searched for info on the app and if it's malicious and I've only heard good things about it. Uninstalled it from my PC just in case and nothing changed. I searched for answers and saw people saying the link stuff could be an adware but the links take me to the right location, I ran Malwarebytes and it didn't detect anything, nor is anything called "Text Enhance" downloaded to my PC. Running another antivirus scan right now.

I have no idea what this could be. It's not giving me any serious problems, it's not showing me any suspicious links. It just looks unpleasant and annoying. No idea what this could be. Please help. Added a few example images.

Tried to open my email <myxfinity.com>. After installing Password Robo___ (can't remember name of extension); told to create "Primary Password." Followed instructions, created easily remembered phrase + symbol & registered. Now when I try to edit old myxifinity login, asked for Primary Password. Entered what I just created, & won't accept it. "Please enter Primary Password." Now can't access email, which worked just fine before activating Password Robo(whatever). PC dead for a week, repaired yesterday, just accessed successfully this AM, one biz turned down THREE credit card charges. Android hacked into last week, Lively CS gave me wrong instructions to reboot in Safe Mode; ditto Googling "Restart Android in Safe Mode." Scammers put malware on my phone--can only run in Safe mode, in which no apps/no texts, no access to internet. PLEASE help!! TIA

Occasionally, my browser will freeze and become unresponsive. I can't figure out a consistent trigger for when it occurs. Whenever it happens, my browser will not allow me to click into any of the tabs or on any of the websites, and only shows a resize icon.

You can see an example of what I mean here.

I've tried reinstalling firefox, removing all cache and cookies. This is super odd since this only happens on my desktop computer, and not with any of my other machines (which use the same plugins).

For the last week or so when I try to print a PDF from Firefox it shrinks to the size of a postage stamp. THe only way to print full size is to open in a PDF program and print from there.

This behavior does not change by altering print settings.

Since the last Firefox update some websites do not open, but spin forever. Same site and same time open fine in Chrome etc. Same with opening a website from an email, very often they do not open but spin: copying URL to Chrome and they open correctly.

Something must have changed for the worse in the latest Firefox edition.

Ever since yesterday when I accidentally turned on caret browsing I've been trying to turn it back off. I've been pressing F7 in an attempt to bring up the pop-up, but to no avail. I've been searching all over the internet for solutions, but nothing has helped yet. I'm only able to find articles on disabling caret browsing in Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. Obviously, that doesn't help me with Firefox.

I have used Firefox as my main browser for years now and I really like it. However, for the past 5 or 6 months I haven't been able to sign into my online banking at all with Firefox. I have to use Chrome. It allows me to put in my username and password but then it just takes me to another sign in view.

Recently I was on another site, trying to purchase a few items and it would not allow me to use the "add to cart" button, only the buy now. But then when I went back to the products, if I added something else to the cart, it wiped out the first thing I had added.

In both of these cases, I have gone to Chrome and used the functions and signed in with no issues. I don't want to have to use different browsers for different things. Is there anything you can advise?

The sites are: https://www.simplii.com/en/home.html and https://amaranthstoneware.ca/

My Firefox is up to date (just today and I tested the bank sign in again, with my fingers crossed).

Thank you.

Hi everyone.

There's a behavior with the "search suggestions" feature in the address bar that works differently than I'd expect. I show a real example below:

1 - I did a search with the phrase "mercado livre" using the address bar suggestions 2 - I visited the website www.mercadolivre.com.br 3 - I close the window and open I new one 3 - When I start typing the word "mer" with the intention of opening the site again, the address bar suggests as the first option the URL "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=market +free". This is the URL of the search done in step 1. You can see thin in the image attached.

What I really hope is that in step 3, it lists the URL "www.mercadolivre.com.br" (my history), and below that, the other search suggestions. It doesn't make sense to me to list the full Google search url as a suggestion, as in step 3.

Is there any way to hide or disable this kind of suggestion? Note that I don't want to disable all suggestions from previously visited sites, just the old searches´ full URL types from step 3.

Thanks.

Hi! I have been a Firefox user on PC/Windows for a long time, years, and had quite a lot of bookmarks. One day, while various FireFox updates were happening, I noticed something, I think it was a popup, saying something to the effect that all your bookmarks will be deleted. Huh!? Couldn't click on anything to stop the install. And after computer restarted, all the bookmarks were gone from FireFox, meaning when I go to the bookmarks button, nothing shows anymore. What happened? They are really gone or where to find a backup to get them back again? I don't recall ever backing them up on purpose, so if there was a backup, it would have been an automatic thing. Please give input. Thank you!
