I use the following crossword site:

https://thenewdaily.com.au/puzzles/quiz-crossword/

When I open it with Firefox, including the latest version, the "Help" icons are replaced by mathematical symbols. If I use Microsoft Edge, the Help icons are there.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Random pages do not load correctly. Sometimes pictures are obscured by a series of small green boxes or partially or wholly covered by a green box. The text appears in these instances as either pink/purple or garbled. I have checked and rechecked all available help in the support section and followed all the suggestions. I have completely removed and reinstalled Firefox three times.

I'd like to keep Firefox as my primary browser. Please help!

When I directly tap on a youtube video from listings it plays the video, but if I open in a new tab, or open a previously opened tab, or reload the page, it is stuck on a silver loading circle. I have tried on chrome and adblockplus browsers and I see the same circle but then the videos will play. It seems youtube recently updated their site to autoplay videos with the tap to unmute as the first tap and then tap again to bring up controls and then tap pause to stop the video. But only on firefox is this a problem. I have posted in youtube help forums but wanted to post here as well.

Since the upgrade to 89, I have a problem with Youtube that, judging by Google results, nobody else on earth has.

If I click on a video, it starts to play normally but as soon as the page finishes loading the video stops and returns to the start of the video. I have to click the play button to get it to play, which it then does without any issues.

The same problem happens when videos are part of one of Youtube's playlists. Video starts, page finishes loading, video stops and goes back to the start.

I've been through too many Google searches, tried about:config changes, policy changes, toggling autoplay in Youtube, installed extensions that supposedly control autoplay. Nothing works.

This was not a problem with 88 when I first had it. When 89 first appeared, I was so frustrated with the wasteful display setup that I uninstalled Firefox and went back to 88; this was when the Youtube issue first appeared. I upgraded back to 89 when I found out how to turn off Proton (because my Bookmark menu shouldn't mostly wasted vertical space) but the Youtube problem persists.

Somebody, please tell me how to fix this.

Hello, can anyone help me because I am getting the "SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE" message every time I try to connect to AOL mail and only on this site... I have been using Firefox on Windows 8 with confidence for a long time, and do not wish to change. Is it still possible to exchange emails with a minimum of security, without being flooded with spam? A big thank you to the one who found a solution and wants to communicate it to me! Jean

When I go to a new tab with something I'm looking for, web surfing, I guess. I'm always ask to "allow" the page to show. most of the time it's pages I often use or go to. How can I avoid or fix this?

If you ask me to search the forums, I get lost and it takes me hours. Asking is better.

Thanks for the help.

Dear Sir, I have problems browsing some specific sites like presstv.ir Last Linux update helped to remove this issue but recent Firefox update brought back the issue. I have therefore avoid latest Firefox update on my other computers but still want to highlight the issue. I also wonder if this has anything to do with the restrictions US government has put on such sites belonging to the government of Iran?

Hello, I have Firefox on all of my devices (Win10Pro, Fire tablet, Samsung phone, etc.). Recently got a Raspberry Pi 4 (Linux) with a 24" (1920x1080) monitor and Firefox (78.11.0esr 32 bit) seems to 'default' to Mobile. How do I change to Desktop globally? Google Search comes up in the middle third of the screen. (Search dropped "Linux" from the search I tried on subject - Google is becoming worthless.) Amazon.com comes up as text on the left side. I don't want to have to manually change from Mobile to Desktop for each site that I visit. PLEASE, don't make me use Chromium....

Thanks!

Hello I have recently updated the photography section of my website, which you can see at http://www.dominicsimpson.co.uk/photography.html

There are 100 photos on there, yet Firefox is missing the first few. I am baffled as to why this is happening. If you view the page in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, you'll see that it displays all of the photos, yet Firefox only displays some of them.

I've checked the HTML and CSS, and they validate correctly.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards Dominic
