I am using Firefox-ESR on my Kali linux distro. I am unable to load any webpages on Firefox but other browsers can load. I tried all the steps like clearing every history, cache, etc. I have even reinstalled several times but it is only loads for 2-3 seconds and shows a white blank page and nothing else. I have gone through your tutorial of "Firefox can't load but other browsers can" but it is not helping. There is no problem of proxy either.

Edit Update : I need the Firefox-ESR installed as default. I downloaded new version Firefox-ESR=78.11.0esr from Firefox download page and it loads webpages. But the latest Firefox downloaded from apt is Firefox-ESR=78.10.0esr. I cannot update Firefox as new downloaded version has executable file name as 'firefox' but default has executable file as 'firefox-esr' in '/usr/lib'. I have two different versions of Firefox-ESR installed now because of the installation procedure given in Firefox install tutorial page. I am also not able to find the new version browser in 'x-www-browser' in 'update-alternatives' to set it as default. I want the Firefox installed with all features as default one. I think I have not installed new version of Firefox-ESR correctly. I just want to update Firefox but not to install another version of it. Thank you.

I did install Firefox a few weeks ago, have what I think is the same issue as described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280908.

Youtube playback works perfectly fine until I forward twice in a row, as I normally do when entering the "sponsored" section of a video. When the playback playback dies I have to reload the video to make the playback start again - but if I use the arrow buttons on the keyboard to forward then playback dies again the second time I press the button.

Please let me know if there are anything I can do to get it fixed.

I use FireFox quite some time on my iMac. With the version V89.0.1 I have problems with FaceBook Messenger videochat. The screen of the partner stays black. I only see my own little video screen on a black screen. Normally after allowing my camera and my mike to be used I get a message: Calling And when answered the other partner shows up on large screen. Now the text is different : Something like : Waiting for other partner to join. And the large screen stays black. The other partner can see and hear me. I tried with another browser (Brave) and then all functions well. But Brave doesn't support the Picture-in-Picture function that FireFox has. Till last week I could use the Picture-in-Picture function in Messenger Videochat. It was great to have the minimized video screen of the videopartner on top of all other programs I open.

The Firefox Community here has tried to be very helpful with all the users who hate the changes in Version 89/90, but we need Mozilla/Firefox to hear us.

CSS work-arounds are fine for the IT-literate, which I am not. They are also only temporary. We have no indication that FF is even paying attention to our complaints.

They need to understand that some users have a keyboard and mouse attached to a PC, not a touchscreen like on a pad or phone. It looks like FF wants to cater to touchscreens. This DOES NOT WORK for PC users.

I suggest one UI for touchscreens and a different one for PCs. IIRC, there is a FF version for Windows AND a different one for Apple; why not do the same?

Nobody seems to have any response other than "use this CSS fix." I've also been directed to "clean up the help platform myself" - huh?

Can we please get SOME kind of response from the platform itself? Or are they just trying to get rid of all users without touchscreens?

I recently got a new laptop, and am transferring everything from an older iMac. The iMac is running High Sierra 10.13.6, the new laptop is running Big Sur 11.4. Both have the latest Firefox update 89.0.1.

A couple of days ago when I got the new laptop, I set up an account to sync, so that my Firefox on the new machine would have all of the bookmarks and settings I had on the old machine. I did not have sync set up before a few days ago.

Sync has worked for my bookmarks. But it has not worked for my add-ons.

I'm running the two machines side by side. My add-ons are there on the older iMac. Syncing is ON, and add-ons are selected in the "You are currently syncing these items" box.

No matter how many times I hit "Sync Now", on the old machine and then the new machine, the add-ons don't sync. I've quit Firefox on both machines. I've restarted both machines.

Help!

Since the recent update to 89.0, I've been experiencing longer than normal initial page loads from start up or wake up for my MBP. Safe mode doesn't seem to matter, and it doesn't matter if a browser window is open and a page loaded or if I'm opening a new browser window, that first page load (or reload) takes much longer than it should (up to 10 seconds to load for example, the Google home page). Once I'm past that initial page load, my browser speed is fine. I also checked Safari and Chrome on this MBE, and neither have this issue, which leads me to believe it isn't a security or some other setting on the Mac.

No website entered into the address bar works. Neither does trying to access anything by entering about:xxxxx (although about:support Keyboard shortcuts to access the same settings menus do not work either. This problem happened suddenly tonight. The back and forward arrows also don't work (although Troubleshooting Information came up when I selected it from the Help menu).

Edge and Chrome work just fine. I have tried deleting the cache, launching Firefox in safe mode, creating an alternate profile, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, deleting the folders manually and reinstalling, deleting/reinstalling in Windows safe mode, rolling back Windows updates (one update had installed today; I tried rolling back several updates just in case), removing Firefox from the allowed apps in my firewall software (AVG Antivirus), and completely disabling AVG Antivirus.

FF auto-updated to 89.0.1, now a site won't work, would like to RESTORE deleted/cleared COOKIES (?!?!) for that site to see if it will help cuz deleted the cookie for it made things worse! Doesn't work under Private FF session either!!

Specifics: I am the Webmaster of (we use WIX to create/manage it) 12cdrc.org and it is working fine using Edge, Chrome, Brave, but no longer works correctly (since 89.0.1, I think happened late last night early this morning on my system) update. Most of the page loads, but the Calendar and display tweets sub-windows will not load! It will be obvious to all where they should be displaying but are not!

So, I tried removing 12cdrc.org cookies. Things got worse! Now the Login won't work either, where I was logged in as my user for the site prior to that.

I tried a Private window/session, and the Login function does work, the Calendar does show, but the tweets sub-section/window still does not display/function.

Background: This is not the first website to malfunction using Firefox... Previous version updates broke the rescuemichigan.com website (none of the pull-down menu functions work, but work fine on/with Brave, Chrome, Edge)! Also mewe.com acts up using FF at times, but a clear of the mewe.com related cookies and relogin at mewe via FF clears up the issues of things not wanting to display correctly or fully on mewe using FF - which is why I thought clearing 12cdrc.org cookies would help in this case (but did not, again, made the malfunctioning worse)!

This makes little sense. I even tried doing D/L of full 89.0.1 install, didn't help.

I'd like to try and RESTORE COOKIES (last thing I want to do is clear all data/cookies for FF) for 12cdrc.org from manual offload of all my userid appdata folder/sub-folders to an external drive (or perhaps appdata backup to Norton cloud backup done a few weeks ago)! But I do not know where to look. Was about to go to my external drive and do complete file search of "12cdrc*.*" to see what would return when I thought I could search Mozilla/FF Help on "Restore Cookies" but only very old question for very old version of FF showed up and it said "IF STILL NEED HELP ASK NEW QUESTION" so here I am doing so!!!

Again, all sites (12CDRC.org, MeWe.com, and RescueMichigan.com) ALL WORK 100% error/issues free using Brave, Chrome, Edge, so this is FIREFOX SPECIFIC and all these issues have started under/after recent FF updates and/or gotten worse, not fixed/better, under updates/upgrades!!!!

Appreciate any Help... 1) like I said, where the Cookies are hidden that I might then recover them from previous save 2) other suggestions?!?!?!
