Firefox Windows Browser 94.0.1 will not work properly with Ebay Selling Tools. Particular problem is that when I try to do anything with a Listing Template to sell an item on Ebay, when I save the item, the page just spins. (attached). Microsoft Edge works fine. Lot's of suggestions to disable enhanced tracking protection, but that does not make any difference.

Hello,

I’m using firefox-dev under debian linux and since last updates my cron script that was supposed to open a certain url in firefox at a regular schedule stopped working.

I do export DISPLAY=:0 than run firefox $url and all was fine previously but now I always received a message : “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”

You can easily reproduce by running : sudo -u $(whoami) /path/to/firefox-dev/firefox https://www.google.com

Can somebody explain what is checked by firefox and why it consider it is not responding instead of just open my url in a new tab ?

Goodday!

I am in need to disable the title/menu bar pop up whenever I press alt, as this conflicts with a browser application I am using, breaking it more times than not. Is there a way to disable specific short-cuts?

I have tried disabling permissions.default.shortcuts, but this disables all short-cuts besides the alt key.

I have been using Bing search and home page but today, it is gone and I cannot reinstate it via "settings". At the top of the settings page is shows: Your browser is being managed by your organization. I don't know what that means or even if it is blocking my efforts to reinstate the Bing search engine. I have limited technology experience and have checked all avenues that I understand and still no luck. Can you help me?

I understand childID1 and up. On release 94, the parentbuildID numeric values are the same. Change my 'WHY' to just "Is this normal and OK?"

Popups are driving me crazy, despite popup blocking being turned on. I tried with Apple support, but they got so far and quit, saying Firefox isn't their app and therefore, my problem isn't their problem. I haven't a clue what to do. The last thing Apple said was to eliminate Firefox or clear all history and that may eliminate the problem; of course it would eliminate all my passwords, too, a non-starter, a take on we had to destroy the village in order to save it. It comes from one source: via2.verifyrobot.info The enticements range from malware on your computer, to sex for sale, to turn on your anti-virus, to money-making schemes. I'll attach a screen shot with a variety of these (note: I tried, but the screen shot is too large).

Is there no way to get rid of this infestation? I'm not a computer scientist, and the articles that are offered to solve such problems might as well be written in Sanskrit. Help, please.

I changed email providers a few years ago from my phone company to spectrum and lost my email account in the process. I cannot check my old email address now and cannot do anything on firefox account with a verify code via email. How can I delete my account or change my email address? When I attempt to change these on my account it sends the verify code to my old email address and I do not own that account. My email address now is [email address], [email address] or [email address].

All of a sudden today I cannot open my gmail. All other bookmarks open fine. When I click on gmail, the tab shows it is trying to open but it doesn't. When I close Firefox and try to reopen it I get the message "Firefox is already running but it is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." When I click close it opens FIrefox. I have rebooted my machine and tried to open Firefox again and it opens but I still cannot open my Gmail. It is my laptop and I am on Windows 8. My email is kwrisue@gmail.com. I am not having the issue with Chrome so I can get to my email that way.

First it starts lagging for no apparent reason and slows the whole machine down - I'm not able to switch to terminal to kill Firefox. Even the mouse pointer starts lagging up to a point that I'm not able to click close button. After a while, it either crashes, or I need to reboot the machine in order to make it work again.
