Hi,

My wife & I have used Firefox for some considerable time now and like it a lot.

However, we have been having trouble with Firefox recently and wonder if you are aware of this. It manifests itself in a very subtle way with only some FEATURES of a particular website not operating, (but no ‘warning’ messages whatsoever).

To begin with, I was at a loss to understand why something didn’t work but, now that this has happened to me on THREE different websites (with features that work perfectly well under MS Edge!), I have come to the conclusion that Firefox is the only “common denominator”.

The first problem was with https://www.parcel2go.com. They have a “Live Help” (Chat) feature. It no longer works with Firefox!

The second was with https://account.patientaccess.com. Try to order “repeat prescriptions” and all is well – until you hit “send”. It no longer works with Firefox!

Today, I have discovered that with https://www.bt.com I am now longer able to access my BT email accounts. Furthermore, they also have a “chat” facility – except that is now also ‘invisible’ to Firefox!

I have seen mention that DuckDuckGo (which I also use) might be involved here?

What’s happened?!!

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!?

Hello,

I know this question is probably somewhere here but I can't find the answer (what I tried below).

So, I have a Debian 10 computer, with Firefox 78.15.0esr. I'm using the Adwaita (dark version) theme on my OS.

The problem is that Firefox uses the dark theme in Its menus (I don't mind) but It transmits to websites this setting and thus, websites supporting dark mode use it (Google, DuckDuckGo for example). I don't like that. I want them to use the light mode but keeping my theme on my OS.

So, I tried to change the value to 0, 1, 2, 3 (I tried each for them) for the setting layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override and put "Adwaita:light" in the widget.content.gtk-theme-override field in about:config. Each time I restarted Firefox. It never works, websites still continue to use the dark theme...

Thanks in advance

I never feel secure with Google, I've been ripped off by putting my bank card saved by Google. I'd be willing to pay to get the security I desire

My Firefox browser accessed the internet until a day ago. Now its unable to load pages. Computer’s network connection is good. I did a firewall check. I even excluded the browser from firewall checks to no avail. The only alternative remaining is resetting the browser. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

So I have several emails accounts, most of them set up to be IMAP.

With the latest updates, Unified Folders is no longer fetching new email on startup.

Eventually emails are fetched, but for the most part, I have to click in EACH account's inbox to check if I have new email.

Very frustrating.

Is there like some new flag I have to set on each account now that nobody thought to warn users about?

When using a very badly designed add-on to delete what I thought were Sync settings, I instead deleted an address book. I have four address books in addition to "person" and "collected," but I should have five. There is lots of valuable info in that fifth one.

I've found the SQLITE files that I believe are my address books, but I don't understand the naming conventions like this:

abook-3.sqlite abook-3.sqlite-shm abook-3.sqlite-wal abook-3.v3.sqlite abook-4.sqlite abook-4.sqlite-shm

And I don't understand how to either (a) identify the address book I want to recover (I have backups), or (b) re-instate it in Thunderbird.

Any help, suggestions or pointers to previously-written directions for this situation would be much appreciated.
