I have had no trouble using Firefox for many years and am able to access all/any websites excepting for one which upto a few months ago I had no trouble with. The one that I am unable to access is

  https://www.scc-online.org 

and all I get is the "The connection has timed out.." comment on an otherwise blank screen. I have contacted the webmaster who says that I am the only one with this problem. My neighbour who uses MS Edge has no trouble in displaying the website. He uses the same ISP as I do but uses Windows 11.

The webmaster says that it might be that I am using Windows 7 64bit and that Firefox cannot handle this particular website. Alternatively he suggested that my ISP was the cause of the problem although I have been using the current ISP for over 20 years and have never had this type of problem.

I have three computers all with Windows 7 and Firefox and they all have the same problem.

Is there any help available for me as the information on the "website" is important and I do not wish to have to go to my neighbour to view the website?

I can't get to my gmail account if I go to firefox as a search and enter the single word GMAIL. Before anything else is entered, I end up at my wife's account. Why should that be and how to get to any other email account. I have the same problem with CROME except there it appears to be bound to MY account - the word GMAIL must trigger some fixed, prior established, link that was not intended. The fixed link in Firefox predates 115. I rarely use CROME. The Firefox linkage was very strange, but I mostly accessed MY account via Thunderbird until this also looked like a problem. Is there a way to break this fixed linkage? Thank you

Looking at your guesses, it is 115.8.1 according to my inspection, W7 is correct.

If I start typing in the URL bar while Firefox is still launching, it will add the URL of my homepage after what I've typed in.

Just what they title says. If I launch Firefox and immediately click in the URL bar to type in a search, instead of preventing the page URL from appearing, it adds it after my cursor once the page has loaded. For example, if I launch Firefox and immediately start typing "weather in my area" it becomes "weather in my areahttps://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions".

This is a mild frustration, but a persistent one. It must be possible to fix, because other browsers (Chrome) are clever enough to not add any text once the user clicks the URL bar. What can I do to stop this from happening?

I have a PC with Windows 7 64b that I have updated after having synchronized with two laptops and one Android. After that Firefox works on all the units except the PC. On that I can see all Firefox shortcuts and Firefox account. But when I try to connect to a web place the screen is blank. I have also tried to sut down the computer and start again. No change. RAM memory is okay, storage on unit C: is a bit small and the CPU is Intel Core i5 3470@ 3,2GH instead of Pentium 4 and 4GH. Should I go back to an older version of Firefox that is not som demanding or is there someting else I can fix?

Do you have my e-mail address? bernt@bernt-lindberg.se

Hi there,

In the search settings, I have set DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and removed all other engines from the list of options. However, I often notice that Google (which I have removed from the options) has replaced DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and has again been added as an optional search engine, without me knowing. Why is this happening? Is it possible to stop it happening, and if so, how can I stop it happening?

Hi,

I like to use separate user accounts / X sessions for work and personal stuff. Whenever I switch from one session to another (ctrl+alt+Fx), it usually takes a few minutes for Firefox to get responsive again. Sometimes it never does (typically on Mondays, after working in my "personal" session all week end, and switching back to my "work" session). Other applications (xterm, qpdfviewer, etc...) don't seem to be affected at all. Is there something I can do to fix that ?

Thanks,

 -Olivier.

the last url in moz_places in places.sqlite are not the same as in my history tab I posted here

Here is my `last-url.sh`

My script keeps giving me wrong answer. For exemple, a stackoverflow.com url instead of the youtube.com one even if i reload the page.

I have only one `xxxxxx.default-esr` profile.

Screenshot examples: the "google test" is a brand new visited url, and the others were refreshed pages
