I am using FF 72.0.2 (64-bit) on an iMac running: macOS High Sierra (10.13.6). My iMac is a mid 2011 machine w 20GB of RAM with an internal 1TB SSD.

CNET runs with the Disqus commenting engine I believe. But the menus and such don't load properly, I cannot run searches, or login, and when I press the comments button at the end of an article, I never get the window panel on the right hand side of the page. I tried clearing my cache, removing all downloaded files, and no change in behavior.

NOTE: ASP MVC 5 application, using bundling and minification turned on.

Problem is that if the value is set to "0px" then firefox automatically changes it to zero. I had to set the value to 0.1px to make it work properly soon as I added 0.1px resolved the issue.

max-height: calc(100vh - 0px); is converted to max-height: calc(100vh - 0); in firefox once the application runs.

The image included in this post shows the issue in action.

discord for example, when you press ctrl+f it doesn't open default browser search function to search currently opened tab, but instead focuses on the built-in search function of discord that does a different thing - searches the entire hub. Is there a config or about config to prevent this behavior on all sites?

Ich sende Ihnen gern einen langen Bericht mit allen Informationen. Allerdings nur wenn mich jemand dazu persönlich auffordert, zum Beispiel mit einer email oder SMS . Warum erst dann ? - Weil auch ich meine Zeit nicht gestohlen habe. Weil ich mir die Arbeit nur dann mache , wenn ich daran glaube oder vermuten kann , daß meine Informationen auch gelesen werden.

The default arrow selectors are tiny and look like crap. I have went through many tutorials and websites that do not have code applied in FF or they tell me to use javascript. Why is there no css code selector in FF for those arrows?

This is code I found for Chrome: input[type=number]::-webkit-inner-spin-button{ }

So how would I edit the up and down arrows in FF?

When I go to https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/#, search for hotels, and then click on a hotel, a pop-up opens to https://www.roomkey.com/hotels (usually to a specific hotel).

I usually use Chrome for accessing https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/# because I do not get a pop-up when doing the same thing in Chrome.

I have pop-ups disabled in Firefox.

I use this website very often: soapee.com

It doesn't use http, https, or even www.

I cannot access it at all anymore, and cannot add an Exception. I don't care if it doesn't have a certificate, or something is expired - I just want to access the site. There's nothing on the site that is a risk for me - just a bunch of recipes. IE/Chrome are no problem, but I won't use any browser except Firefox.

Can someone help?

There are several hundred browser websites that are opened after reboot with Mozilla Firefox reload.

How did this happen with a reload?

Is this a cache or cookie problem?

What was changed in the January Mozilla Firefox update?

Ccleaner requires that the browser is closed to clear cache and cookies.

If this were done the several hundred webpages would no longer reopen.

How can the Mozilla Firefox browser be modified so that it no longer displays Access Denied without losing the reload option for the hundreds of websites that are currently open?

(The browser typically has the default settings)


The Google Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers can open these websites without problems. Other end users opening the same websites with Mozilla Firefox did not see Access Denied.


For this problem please indicate:

What specifically happened with the January update that may have caused this problem? If it was not the January update what else could have caused this problem? How can the problem be fixed so that the webpages that are currently open can easily be reopened after a reboot with reload? What could have been done to prevent this Access denied problem?

Gifs/gifv/mp4 from imgur (possibly other sites) will play for little bit and then stop.

Have tried with Firefox for Android and Firefox Preview. Both browsers show the same behavior and will stop paying at random spots. On preview I see an error saying the video is corrupt. I do not experience the problem using any chromium based browsers and things play fine. 

An additional note is that things play fine on my PC with Firefox. If I request the mobile site, the gifs will play to the end and then the player shows the broken icon in the center of the media player
