I am having a problem with Firefox displaying my home page, yahoo.com in English. I defaults to espanol. Cannot find a solution to this as I have tried most everything suggested, clean cache, website links. reset through troubleshooting, resetting modem, pc and router. This is pretty much a webpage problem and all links from that page. I do not have this issue with independent links from bookmarks. Or other Browsers like Chrome of IE. I use yahoo as my main Productivity center and would like your help fixing this issue.

Hi, Firefox is displaying letters with accents (e.g. letters from Spanish words) incorrectly as Cyrillic letters. This makes a lot of webpages difficult to read. This does not seem to be happening all the time. Neither does it seem to happen in other apps other than Firefox. I have my preferred languages for displaying webpages in Firefox set as En-GB, en, es-es, in that order. Ditto for my wider system settings. In terms of my wider system keyboards I do have Russian installed, in order of preference this is gb > us > es > ru. I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to ensure Spanish and other Latin letters display correctly?

When I type "thesaurus" (without the quotes) into the search bar and hit enter, it redirects to https://thesaurus and the tab says "Server Not Found". In order to actually search for thesaurus I have to go through the dropdown and select to google thesaurus.

This is an absolutely ridiculous issue that so far seems to only be triggered with one keyword. I have used multiple one word searches to attempt to replicate and none of them trigger the same action. I have cleared my history, disabled search bar autofill from about:config, disabled search suggestions, restarted my computer, restarted firefox, none of these corrects the issue.

Obviously, I can simply go to google and search for a thesaurus, but this seems like an issue for tech support to correct rather than something expected to be worked around.

Update: Thanks to jscher2000. I disabled all add-ons and can now browse. Next will be to try them out one at a time to find the offender. Cheers


Windows 10 Firefox 97.0 (64 bit) Amazon.com

Suddenly, without any changes I am aware of, Firefox will not connect to Amazon.com (nor smile.amazon.com). I get the error "Secure Connection Failed" followed with "An error occurred during a connection to smile.amazon.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". All other sites, including banking, seem to be fine. I can connect to Amazon via Edge. What does work, besides Edge, is Firefox's troubleshooting mode. What's disabled in TS mode?

I have tried the following: 1- With and without VPN. 2- Disabled Defender. 3- close everything and restart. 4- Clear cache, cookies, and everything else I could think of then close down and restart. 5- Reinstalled a fresh version of Firefox (and then also cleared cache etc and restarted).

This has been happening just over a week and there was a brief period, a couple days ago, when it connected to Amazon but that did not last. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks very much.

Since the Presidents' Day weekend I have been unable to logon to the Fifth Third Bank website from my computer. Several calls to the bank's customer service confirm that many patrons are having the same problem. Today's call elicited that their tech support is still having problems with Firefox, Safari, and other browsers. The website is https://www.53.com and the customer service telephone number is 1-(800) 972-3030. Can the tech people at Firefox/Mozilla find a solution to this problem? Please help. Many customers are in the same boat.

My website is not properly displaying in Firefox, and shows an error as listed below. It displays fine in all other browsers. I have tried multiple troubleshooting ideas for the past week, and none have fixed the error.

Any suggestions?

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.joannazimmermanphd.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.

Hi, I am using the most recent firefox on windows 10. A few months ago with an update that occurred at the time, firefox suddenly switched to some sort of dark mode - ie all text was white with black background. I found others online with the same issue and with their help was able to change the main view back, however all the menu's and any popup dialogue options are still in this mode. I have attached a screen shot.

Hi,

I have a strange issue in that every so often, Firefox will stop being able to access Gmail.com. I'll get the error in Gmail that says it's not connected and it will retry in a bit. If I do a refresh, I get the big Gmail logo that says Google Workspace underneath it. The bar goes across almost all the way to the end and then it just sits there.

If I close and re-open Firefox, it will generally start working again for a little while. Then at a random time, it will simply stop working again. Sometimes, if I let it just sit there for a long time, it might start working on its own.

If I use FF in a Private Window all day, it doesn't seem to ever have this problem. I've already tried uninstalling all extensions, Refreshing FF, uninstalling FF and deleting the appdata folder. None of these things has helped at all. I'm at a complete loss as to what the problem might be.

I also sometimes get an error stating: Oops! Your selected image failed to load at the top of Gmail when I do a page refresh. At times Google Searching won't work. And sometimes even if I have Gmail open, I can't click any links because they get routed through Google somehow. I've ever had times where Youtube wouldn't load up properly since that's Google too.

If anyone has seen this before, or has any ideas on anything I can do, please let me know.

Thanks!

'I just downloaded Firefox in an attempt to break away from Google stranglehold (I also switched to Protonmail and DuckDuckGo). My issue is that I was unaware that there is an autozoom feature with FF. While for some people this is probably a godsend, for me it is slowly, but surely, driving me crazy.

I have searched for the answer online but have not found the solution ... please tell me that there is a way to shut this feature off

Hi,

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

When hardware-accelerated Webrender is enabled, the stuttering while watching a video and scrolling is incredible. Not only that, moving tabs to the left or right is laggy too. A workaround to fix this is `gfx.webrender.software` to true. Can anybody explain me why Firefox is using the GPU but is slower than when it's not using it? (Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti, i9 9900k, Arch Linux x64)
