Suddenly and while Firefox was open I lost access to Reddit, all it now shows is a black page with the word "Blocked" in it. I've disabled addons, tried a Private Window and am about to do a cache flush. I'm not banned from Reddit, I can still log in on Edge and on Android apps no problem and Reddit seems to be the only page that is having this issue. There doesn't seem to be a ban or block list in Firefox that I can find, I'm at a loss as to why this has suddenly happened.

When I click on my Inbox there is a delay in receipt of emails and more often than not I receive a Thunderbird fault message saying " Unable to connect to your IMAP server. You may have exceeded the maximum number of connections to this server". I have asked my server and there is no restriction on the number of connections I can make. Can you explain the reason for sending this message and the delays I am experiencing ? Thank you, Michael Osborne

Hi! I have a problem with thuderbird mail. No e-mails have been received since 19.01. When updating the e-mail, only one e-mail is received - as if something is stuck, because the current e-mail is visible on other programs. The problem can be seen in the screenshot. How can I fix it?

I have been using Thunderbird for many years to read and send my verizon.net email. 2 days ago I started getting the error message "Sending of password for user ____@verizon.net did not succeed. Mail server pop.verizon.net responded [SYS/TEMP] server error - Please try again later." I am running Thunderbird 91.5.0 on Windows 10. In the various help files, I see reference to OAuth2 authentication. Thunderbird won't let me select this for pop.verizon.net. I tried automatically selecting authentication but Thunderbird sets authentication to "Normal". The AOL documentation shows that I can use IMAP instead of POP, but Thunderbird won't let me set anything but POP. How can I get reconnected to verizon.net email? Thanks Penn Hess

often when on ATT yahoo email page, Firefox will stall and say not responding and then it shuts down any other activity on my pc. When I am able later to open task manager, I see about 20 firefox.exe processes running, so i start ending them all. This is getting annoying, it's probably an ATT probelm due to their stupid ads, but I have tried several times to stop Firefox from running all these processes but you all keep coming back. why so damn many for one window/tab open at a time????

I can use firefox just fine (win10 home, v2004, os build 19041.1415)- I only get the XPCOM error when trying to open the Eset protected browsing window (for banking and protection). This has not happened before when using/updating Firefox and only just happened when I updated Firefox today to 96.0.2.

I've been browsing the XPCOM queries and have tried the basic reinstall (deleting program folders prior to installing) with no luck, but so far but wanted some clarity prior to trying other things-

Some of the answers here point out that security software can block the folder access when Firefox attempts updates/installs. I attempted an install with Eset paused, but no change. On another computer, a similar problem - a firefox error message occurs when trying to run the Eset protected browsing window, so attempted the same "program folder delete>reinstall" method, only now when clicking the Eset window, it just gives the loading symbol then nothing happens. Again- Firefox also works fine on that computer as well save for the same protected window usage. Not the same error, but still similar enough to think it's related.

Is a safe mode firefox install the next step forward? Should firefox be uninstalled prior to doing so? (Not just deleting the program folders via file explorer, but an actual uninstall process). Or is this something that should be breached with Eset tech support (beyond just pausing the internet protection and functionality, should it be uninstalled prior to firefox reinstall and than installed again afterwards)?

Please advise and thank you in advance!

I am currently using Firefox 95.2.0 on Android 12 system with my Pixel 6. I did not have any issue with the previous version of Android, but immediately after I got Pixel 6 and brand new Android 12, Firefox crashes quite often when I scroll down a page.

I found that it is less frequent recently after update, but it still happens, and even make the phone restart. I am not sure it is Pixel's problem, but Firefox is the only app that makes constant crashing for me.

I read this thread: LINK that arose 8 month ago, and is this problem still not resolved? It says that Android 12's jelly overscroll effect crashes with Firefox's scrolling effect. I could not try this solution because I cannot use about:config.

Every since updating to the latest FF, I get messages from every major streaming video service that there is some type of error. Amazon Prime says to update to the latest version of FF, Pluto just says that it can't load the player, and generates a P-DEV302 error code. Since Chrome and MS Edge work fine, it's across multiple streaming service and it only happened after a FF update, it would seem that something in FF broke/changed. Any ideas?

Have cleared cache, restarted pc and router, refreshed and then reinstalled firefox. no luck. then i reverted to release 95.0.2 and everthing worked fine. but then, despite the fact that i disabled auto updates, release 96.0.1 was reapplied and streaming was broke again. cannot use amazon prime or comcast streaming services. youtube works intermitently. why was current release reapplied regardless of auto update setting and why is streaming not working? streaming works on chrome but not firefox. i have been using firefox for as long as it has been around. must i now be forced to use chrome instead?

For the last few days, when opening Firefox browser, instead of opening to my homepage, it brings me to what looks like a page for programming data and what looks like a computer generated script being typed that usually says" a variance is a difference between...." or something similar and then glitches and the main page then shows up on screen. Its not doing it all the time, but once or twice a day. It started after the last Windows security update last week that was an "urgent" download from Microsoft.

Just thought I would let you know as it seems your security may have a glitch. It happens too fast to get a screen shot or I would include one. Cheers, B.MacDonald

Hi there I have used Firefox on my android phone for the longest time, and never had an issue. A couple of days ago it crashed immediately on trying to open it. I repeated trying to open it across the course of the day - but continued crashing. I deleted it, and have set to use Chrome. I reinstalled Firefox - same issue. I am not techy-techy (!) but would like to have Firefox back on my phone as all my passwords are there. Any help appreciated Thank you :)
