Recently switched from Comcast to Sonic. Have a bunch of identity issues. Old sites do not recognize me, and put me through a bunch of hoops to get on the web page.

ALSO.....Using Firefox, and Google homepage. The homepage will not open unless I first clear the history. Then it will open. It will open if I migrate from one website to another, but if I close it down and try to reopen the homepage......again....I have to delete history first.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I´m using Firefox since many years ago. I have installed Firefox 89.02 and I have checked all the options in Dangerous Content Protection: Block dangerous and deceptive content, Block dangerous downloads and Warn you about unwanted and uncommon software. I have install Kaspersky Total Security 21.3 and a few days ago I received an alert: Event: A malicious link has been detected that has already been opened Application active: firefox.exe Component: Antivirus Internet Description: No process Type: Likelihood of an unauthorized software download Name: https://in-page-push.com/400/3906803 Alert: High

Is Firefox blocking dangerous software or not? How to block push notifications that can try to install some kind of malicious program? Thanks for this excellent browser.

On Facebook.com I cannot send voice note style messages and get this error message

"You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone To make calls or send voice clips, go to your browser settings and allow Facebook access to your microphone."

On another website, when I try to record live video using my built in camera, the camera itself does not activate and only shows a black screen. The microphone DOES work on this site however.

Here is what I have done so far: I've reset the pram and smc on my macbook Granted permissions to these websites in firefox Granted permissions to my mic and camera to firefox in mac security settings Restarted firefox in safe mode, without add ons Cleared the cache, cookies, etc in firefox Reinstalled firefox and tried it all again

Nothing has worked so far and this is beyond frustrating. This problem cropped up at some point after updating from firefix 89 I believe. All help would be super appreciated, I rely on voice/video because typing is very difficult for me. thanks!

I'm not necessarily looking for a solution, but curious if others are seeing similar issues!

A couple years ago I switched from Google Chrome to Firefox because Chrome was a notorious memory hog and kept making my Macbook freak out (i.e., hang, crash, fan acceleration). But after I upgraded to Big Sur 11.5 a few weeks ago, my Macbook started freaking out again, even with Firefox. Here are some things I suspect are causes:

  • AdBlocker Ultimate add-on. Every now and then my fan would go nuts, the add-on extensions in the upper right of my browser would glitch, and Firefox would hang (tabs refuse to load, etc) for about 30 seconds. Once I turned it off my computer has been just fine.
  • Dark Reader add-on. Same phenotype as AdBlocker.
  • My caps lock key?? This one is super weird. I noticed that when I had the above two add-ons enabled, hitting my caps lock key would commence computer freak-outs.

Anyone else seeing this? If so, what are add-ons you'd recommend that function similarly to AdBlocker and Dark Reader?
