Hi! I have the strictest anti-tracking protection enabled and have one question: Firefox prevents cross-site cookies by default, but if I install Firefox Containers, does that mean that those cross-site cookies will be allowed inside that container, even if they're not when browsing outside of any container? My concern is that, if that happened, using Firefox containers would actually diminish privacy instead of increasing it (for example, Facebook would be able to use Instagram cookies because they're in the same container, even though it wouldn't if I hadn't installed Containers). Thanks a lot! Love the Firefox community <3

I've noticed that every now and then I come across a website that doesn't function properly. For instance, right now when I try to browse https://www.parts-express.com/ the page will load, but when I try to view things by clicking on the menu, it will stay on the same page. I've had to use another browser to search this site.

Another thing I've come across is paying for things. A few times already I've tried to make a purchase and it would not go through. I called one of the places and they said it was because I was using Firefox. The payments went through when using a different browser.

Is this common? Is there something I can do to make Firefox work universally?

The German word concoction "Verschlimmbessern" which translates into "constantly 'improving' something until it actually becomes worse or dysfunctional".

I'm at a point now where we all give up on Firefox as these constant updates and uncalled and not requested changes not only become annoying but also introduce new dysfunctionality. (just like Windows 10 updates)

Too many to list here. but this job securing through constant new updates and changes gets very annoying.

Now the search feature has changed into some absurdity having to be in the address bar. We don't need that we don't want that! we wanted like it is and always was before.

Searching support I found answers but applying them does not work: "browser.urlbar.suggest.searches" change to false Search "keyword.enabled" change to false Search "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" change to false browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus change to false browser.urlbar.update1 change to false browser.urlbar.update1.interventions change to false browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips change to false

About to uninstall this nonsense altogether and install an old version again or better yet just give up on it and find another browser! I need a reliable browser that works and not something that annoys me after every update.

Firefox has completely stopped working on my laptop and literally the only thing I can do is open it up. If I try to go to a website, go to the settings, go to the reset Firefox page I get a white screen. I've tried:

  • Resetting Firefox (couldn't make it there)
  • Uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it
  • Uninstalling Firefox, deleting all of the Mozilla/Firefox files on my computer and reinstalling it

Is there an anything I can do besides reinstalling Windows?

I updated my Mozilla today and, after I closed it the last time, it just won't let me reopen. It shows a warning window saying: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I even shutted down and restarted my laptop, but it keeps giving me this same message when I try to open Mozilla. I unistalled, reinstalled... still the same warning.

Tried both close and cancel buttons, none worked to change a thing, nothing happens.

Hello,

I have a new issue with Firefox that began after a routine, small update to my Mac OS (Catalina 10.15.7). Please refer to the images provided, showing a normal view of a website in Chrome vs what I am seeing in Firefox.

  • Link colors are being overwritten by some default blue and purple
  • Graphical interface elements, such as the line underneath "All" in the navbar, do not appear
  • Black outlines are appearing where they do not normally, and elements that would be in a light gray are now black, etc

These issues are only limited to my Firefox browser and do not occur in other browsers I have installed. I have performed the Refresh Firefox function, and all of these issues are persisting. In things like Gmail, these black lines and flat/missing GUI elements essentially render it unusable.

I'm desperate for a solution.

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.
