Further to my post about Firefox not connecting to websites. We use Norton 360 for virus control. Nothing has changed there. When searching the net for information Firefox for the last month is unable to access many websites. This only happens with Firefox. Something has changed and I cannot find out what it is so that I can correct it. The settings for microsoft edge are the same and it does not happen with it. I've tried resetting it,deleting and reinstalling but nothing changes.

I'm trying to take a proctored test with PearsonVue. It keeps saying on the system test that Firefox is still running. I've tried shutting down through Task Manager. I've tried rebooting and just using Chrome to access the test page. It still says it's running. Next step is to uninstall...surely there's another solution!?

  • The attached image shows Firefox (on the right) not displaying Helvetica correctly. It appears jagged and not pleasant to look at. The browser on the left is Edge and all Chromium based web browsers seem to render it as it should.
  • I've tried to look into (about:preferences#general) and the option that says (Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above) is ticked.
  • I've also tried reinstalling the browser, clearing the website cache and also, removing my profile from it. None of these seemed to fix the issue.
  • It's been persistent for quite some time now, however I didn't really find any articles regarding this issue.
  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hmmm! The page you're looking for must be here somewhere... error code: 404 ERR_004 Maybe you'd like to go back home

(See screenshot.)

This does not occur on any other browser.

What is this nonsense?

I'm using Mac OS and the system dialog works better for me than the one provided by Firefox. And if a preview is necessary, it is possible to activate "Preview" from the system dialog box (Additionally offers the possibility of generating a pdf).

On this forum the subject is very present; there are a large number of "about:config" keys whose modification is supposed to provide a solution; it's a big mess. Some changes that worked with Firefox 101 no longer work after updating to Firefox 102. Eventually I found an answer here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363191

This question is important. Can you suggest a stable and accessible solution for future Firefox updates? An option in the "Preferences" menu?

I am having one problem with Firefox. Other than this, it is working splendidly. Thank you. I work with an online donation management software application called: eTapestry. I am on it all day, for 17 years, it's my job. The login page does not fully load. This started yesterday, Monday, July 11th. I was able to find a work around yesterday, but this work around doesn't work today. The completely loaded page should look like the enclosed image: Sign-In-1.png with the blue 'Sign In' button being the active link to sign into the program. However, what I get is shown in image: Sign-In-2.png where there is a revolving circle of dots. Normally the revolving circle of dots would be just a blip of a second before the blue 'Sign In' button appeared. What do I do? Is this a result of the 102.0.1 upgrade? Thank you.

I recently received a new work computer. Unfortunately, all of my my bookmarks were lost. However, I have all of these bookmarks saved on my phone. I know that I can pair my phone and my laptop, but I'm afraid that when I pair them, it will pair my phone to my laptop. Is there a way to ensure that the information on my phone is transferred to my laptop?

Thanks for the help.

This is in regard to the privacy settings under about:preferences#privacy > 'Allow firefox to send technical & interaction data to Mozilla' where I'm willing to opt into just interaction data, but not willing give my technical data, because of the temporary collection of my IP address. Due to this, I have to opt it out completely & unfortunately couldn't contribute to mozilla's data collection stats. If there's anyway to split those separately, would be better.

Thank you, Prince Cooper
