With my MacBookAir using Firefox, when I click on many links a Fortinet webpage pops up saying that website is a problem and I can't access it, so how delete?

Fortinet (or Forticloud) all of a sudden started a couple weeks ago to deny my access to many websites when I click on the link in an article, etc. Never happened before. When I contacted Fortinet, they said maybe Firefox added this to my account. I prefer to delete this security measure. Does anyone know how? Thanks.

This has occurred with two different Windows 10 pc's on the same network. It has only happened once on each pc. I copied the page address which is below. This link no longer produces the same page that was viewed.

Having recently confirmed a pc was hacked on this network should I be concerned?

When you let Firefox open for long on work on it a lot, some domains stop to load, it means for example that for a period your youtube website will work normally, but after a while if you try to open anything from youtube it will load a black page and nothing else, you can refresh or try whatever you want, all the "youtube domain" is blacklisted until you kill Firefox and reopen it freshly

It happens to me since forever, on all OS, on many different devices, I learned to live with it, but I was bored and I was obliged to work on other browsers for a while where you don't experience things like that and at your return in Firefox it becomes big so I ended up posting it here

It's maybe related to cache (not the cache that you flush with ctrl-F5, this isn't working but), a sort of cache related to Firefox process, the Web handler/content module maybe, I don't know. I guess that if maybe you can clean from the actual process all the data concerning the domain, it will load nicely without reloading all Firefox

The step to reproduce are quite difficult as you see here but i'm sure that i'm not the only one experiencing that

So this has happened me a number of times. When I browse netflix first Firefox becomes unresponsive I cannot navigate through it. Then after 5 to 10 seconds my whole computer becomes unresponsive, I even cannot open task manager to kill any processes or restart the computer. Also when I force a restart from power button when I reopen Firefox it does not generate any bug reports. What I want to learn is how I can gather some additional information for this and feed to Mozilla support since I have nothing, I cannot even get a screenshot. I was not able to find a recent similar problem.

The language that I chose to apply on firefox is written from the right to the left. Thus, firefox should be adjusted to that language. There is 1 problem. When applied on this right to left language, the tabs are from the right to the left, but also the window buttons. The picture attached describes best the issue.

I recently had to reload windows to get rid of a Chrome nuisance popup. Now when I click on something like my USA Today crossword puzzle bookmark, the puzzle won't load. I have to enter the website manually, search for crossword and then I can get the most recent puzzle. If I don't go through this scenario each time I either get nothing or I get yesterdays puzzle. This didn't happen before I reinstalled windows and by extension firefox.

I have been reading the forum and trying and seeing if changing some settings will solve the problem, but nothing has worked. The problem is this; when I reopen firefox after either A) having shut down my laptop, or B) having simply 'quit' firefox, I must enter my email address and password again, then enter my phone number so that it can send me a text to the link to the firefox app for my phone (which I have installed), then finally I can navigate firefox as normal and my websites and history are remembered. However, it is not really "as normal" because I have to SIGN INTO the websites again. Sometimes it remembers the username and password and all I have to do is click through it, but sometimes it doesn't and I have to manually sign into them. Bookmarks aren't ever saved either. I have attached the screenshot of the screen that comes up every time I reopen firefox and this problem happens. I did not have this problem on my older firefox instillation, just when I updated to the newest version. It is so irritating. If anyone can tell me what to do so that this does not happen, and it remembers me, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
