previously FireFox was able to login Spotify normally, and was able to post comments on Reddit, but suddenly it lost both abilities, and with the extreme lag on other sites, although still functional, i can't understand why these both sites can't be logged into, or can't post any comments in them. it has been this case for the past month. so what's going on? i'm NOT going back to Chromium based browsers ever again! i am in FireFox for a permanent replacement!

thanks in advance.

I'm having issues with videos loading on ANY webiste, YouTube ect.... This started happening very recently out of the blue. Videos work fine on Edge. Additionally, I cannot run Firefox in troubleshooting mode? It crashes. I tried "refreshing" and reinstalling Firefox to no avail. I am using AdAware AV and AVG anti viruses if it matters, I have tired disabling both and loading FIrefox, no changes.

I tried filling out a Contact form on a website here: https://www.klineind.com/contact/ using Firefox and after submitting it, I got the message, "Sorry, for technical reasons you can't submit your query from this browser. Please try using a different browser or computer." So I started over again using Google Chrome and the form was successfully submitted!

I have screenshots of both Firefox and Chrome after the submission but I cannot attach them here, it appears. For better troubleshooting, I suggest that screenshots be allowed to be attached.

I have recently had some issues with Firefox's compatibility and which hopefully will be addressed.

Thank you.

Is this still the current status or are there any plans to support the old Windows versions for a little longer?

Thanks and regards, Martin

I recently got seriously worried when I became aware about the new AI firewalls these days, which monitors or inspect SSL encrypted packets, before the packets reach to the main website. These new AI firewall systems are installed in some countries by their governments to suppress free speech, or just spy on its people. These firewalls, as you may already know, uses DPI-SSL system, which decrypts packets traveling from user to the main website. To decrypt the HTTPS packets, these firewalls uses its own self signed CA certificates. So I am asking the firefox developers, that why you guys allow this privacy issue? Does the packets sent from a firefoxe browser to other websites are also decrypted, by these firewalls? If yes, then why you guys allow this? Firefox must ONLY allow a specific CA certificate made for firefox browser only. Firefox browser must never let other third party softwares, or any software, to decrypt its encrypted packets. This is a serious privacy issue. With these firewalls, they can see what users write in chats, or posts, they can see witch content we are watching on a website, they can see who we follow on social media platforms, they can see which content or posts we like and etc. Even passwords are not safe anymore, which e use for any website of platform. When passwords are not safe, so does our accounts of various websites. This is a serious privacy breach.

These firewalls is a weapon for those countries which want to suppress free speech or suppress opposition sides in a government or spy on its own people.

Please let me know if I am mistaken or my concerns are genuine.

If an URL already have many tags or longish tags I can no longer see suggested tags when starting to type tags. Image example illustrates. This URL already have the following tag list:

1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI

Old behavior was if started to type ", spi" it would list suggestions:

Spitfire Spitfire_MkIX Spitfire_MkV Spitfire_MkVI

Easy & clear to select from.

Now it lists all already existing tags before each suggestion:

1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI,Spitfire 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI, Spitfire_MkIX 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI,Spitfire_MkV 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI, Spitfire_MkVI

Suggestions are scrolled right invisible outside the input box.

Who thought this was a good new feature? It adds nothing, I can already see existing tags, why would I want to see them repeated for each new suggested tag (while not actually seeing the suggested new tag)?

How can I turn this *!$&@! off and return to old behavior?

Recently I have not been able to login to other websites from my emails when using FireFox as the browser. ie: Windows10 Xfinity Comcast email attempting to open a Publix supermarket web site.

Have been using FireFox for years with no problem on this system.

Because I made a mistake in purchasing a Motorola cell phone I'm having to visit Lenovo/Motorola's website way more frequently than I'd prefer. So far, each time I arrive at their website I'm greeted with a message that says something akin to "It looks like you're in Romania. Would you rather use out Romanian website?" I finally got annoyed enough to ask "Why?" and was told to check by browser settings.

I just checked my Firefox browser settings and the only thing I could see that would make an addled person or programmer think I'm in 'Romania' is the setting for the default font which is set to "Times New Roman". To squeeze a font name and come up with "Romania" as a location is a bit of a stretch in my opinion, but I've seen more asinine things done...

(It's a good thing I don't have my default font set to "Tahoma" as Motorola might think I'm accessing their website from Washington State's Mount Rainier whose Native American name is Tahoma. But then again, that'd probably be too much of a stretch for Motorola, bless their little hearts.

Is there any other setting(s) I should check?

PS I'm using Windows 10, NOT Windows 8

Three weeks ago Mozilla disabled the Password Boss plug-in for Firefox. We contacted the developers about this and a few days later they submitted new code for your approval. It's been almost 3 weeks since then and NOTHING has happened! We used to use Firefox exclusively but had to move to Chrome because you disabled this plug-in (and we use it for EVERYTHING).

When will this be approved so we can install the Password Boss plug-in again? And why wasn't there ANY notification that you were going to do this? It crippled our work!
