I don't think this is an error message, a glitch, or what - Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirection to another page. I get this several times a day now, on perfectly safe sites I've used forever without problem. Sites like my bank, investment companies and adobe login. Less and less is it opening the page when I click Allow. I get a white page with the address still filled out and the Firefox prevented this page blah, blah, blah still there. I've restarted, cleared cookies, and cache, shut off the few add-ons I have, but it didn't help nor did changing config:about blocking true/false. I'm wasting a lot of time trying to find out what is going on. Could someone just tell me what button to push to stop this endless cycle of annoyance. Pretty please. Thanks to the Wizard that has the answer. Windows 10 Latest Firefox

I had two Firefox windows open in the past hour, and accidentally closed the one I was using, and then closed the other as well to try to tidy the situation without realizing I could only access the most recent closure. Unfortunately, Firefox will only open the most recent session to be closed, so I can't access the 30+ folders that i need to restore from the first window. I am a non-technical person currently in hospital. Can anyone help?

Hi everyone. I have a kind of weird problem, Firefox won't let me tweet links....... tweet button is grated out and popup says Save or Delete Tweet. I assumed it was a Twitter problem since it happened with both my accounts, but when i try with Chrome, links post and work (tweets). I tried Firefox Safe Mode, and Refreshing Firefox, plus ran numerous antivirus scans, none repaired the problem. Big FF fan, have always used it and i donate every year to the Mozilla Foundation and would rather not have to use Chrome. Needless to say, after using FF so long i have many Bookmarks and Passwords saved. Thanks for any advice.

Hi - Suddenly after using Firefox for many years I cannot open several of my financial-banking sites on my laptop. After entering the password, the browser goes back to the log-in screen. Starting again repeats this circle. I have tried turning off enhanced tracking but there is no effect. This problem occurs on these sites: new.alterna.ca, alternabank.ca and motivefinancial.com. Oddly enough, easyweb.td.com still works to access my account. On my android mobile, logging in with Firefox works fine on all these sites. Can you help me resolve this issue? I don't want to have to start relying on Edge or Chrome! Paul Thomson

I do a lot of autoscrolling, initiated by clicking and releasing the mouse wheel and controlled by moving the mouse away from me or toward me.

A particular problem for me is that ending the autoscroll cleanly often fails. I try end to end the scroll by clicking the mouse wheel again. Sometimes this succeeds, but often it doesn't and I get scrolled very far beyond where I wanted to stop (after making repeated wheel clicks and/or left mouse button clicks). Sometimes, totally out of control.

So, two questions:

1. What is Mozilla's intended way for the user to terminate an autoscroll event?

2. Can it be that the above problem is also related to keyboard lag (keystrokes often delayed by 1-2 seconds or don't ever make the screen) which I have been experiencing for some time? Maybe some mouse clicks are getting lost too, or are being delayed. I see in the forum and elsewhere online that a lot of FireFox users have had keyboard lag problems, in posts from many years back to the present, with few successful fixes. What is the best way for me to fix this? -- or is it a bug that needs attention?

My Firefox browse is frequently unable to log into many financial sites, most importantly my Scotia bank. this happens almost every week or 2 and I am forced to use Microsoft edge or Chrome which log in fine. This can sometimes happen as frequently as once a week or it will go 2-3 weeks without problems. Is this a Firefox issue or are 3 banks, 1 credit union, Credit Bureau, government and medical sites all to blame?

Hello,

I have recently been having difficulties with my Firefox Bookmark bar at the top of the screen.

The addresses change and I cannot use them. They look different. I just updated them a day ago and they've already gone back to this look and don't work anymore.

Please see screenshot.

Thank you.

The RAM of my device is about 4GB, which is not a lot, but the performance of the browser is very correct and fast, but in some cases, when loading pages, the browser freezes for a short moment, this is a bit annoying. The next problem in the web developer version is that the writing indicator is displayed everywhere in the browser, especially on the home page, when you click it, you need to disable this item on the home page. The browser is visible. Finally, the RAM consumption of the device needs to be optimized and slightly reduced

Firefox has my credit card information and it shows up in a window when I go to pay for something, but when I click on the credit card I want to pay with, it won't autofill. In Settings, the box to autofill is checked. This has worked a hundred times before, but stopped working a few months ago. How do I get the autofill to start working again
