I have used Firefox as my main browser for years now and I really like it. However, for the past 5 or 6 months I haven't been able to sign into my online banking at all with Firefox. I have to use Chrome. It allows me to put in my username and password but then it just takes me to another sign in view.

Recently I was on another site, trying to purchase a few items and it would not allow me to use the "add to cart" button, only the buy now. But then when I went back to the products, if I added something else to the cart, it wiped out the first thing I had added.

In both of these cases, I have gone to Chrome and used the functions and signed in with no issues. I don't want to have to use different browsers for different things. Is there anything you can advise?

The sites are: https://www.simplii.com/en/home.html and https://amaranthstoneware.ca/

My Firefox is up to date (just today and I tested the bank sign in again, with my fingers crossed).

Thank you.

Hi everyone.

There's a behavior with the "search suggestions" feature in the address bar that works differently than I'd expect. I show a real example below:

1 - I did a search with the phrase "mercado livre" using the address bar suggestions 2 - I visited the website www.mercadolivre.com.br 3 - I close the window and open I new one 3 - When I start typing the word "mer" with the intention of opening the site again, the address bar suggests as the first option the URL "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=market +free". This is the URL of the search done in step 1. You can see thin in the image attached.

What I really hope is that in step 3, it lists the URL "www.mercadolivre.com.br" (my history), and below that, the other search suggestions. It doesn't make sense to me to list the full Google search url as a suggestion, as in step 3.

Is there any way to hide or disable this kind of suggestion? Note that I don't want to disable all suggestions from previously visited sites, just the old searches´ full URL types from step 3.

Thanks.

The comments section of the Washington Post does not display. It just shows grey for the comment area. When I place the cursor on the comments, it says "loading". But it never loads. The article itself displays properly. This happened after WaPo updated their website. I have taken the following steps with no change:

- Cleared the cache. - Disabled/Remove Ad Blocker and UBlock.

Tried opening the pages in different browsers. Same issue with Chrome, but works with Edge. Appreciate any help.

Hello,

As stated, when I connect to public networks (namely Starbucks' and Panera's) Firefox will not successfully load their connection portals. A new tab will open, and "www.msftconnecttest.com/redirect" will begin loading, but go nowhere. Each time I am forced to open Microsoft Edge to paste that link in and the connection proceeds.

Has anyone encountered this before?

After updating from 89.0.2 to 90.0.2, FireFox browser cannot open ANY webpage. Occurs on a 2017 iMac both in OSX 10.14.6 and also OSX 11.4 after upgrade. (Also, “Checking for updates…” in “About Firefox” never connects, just spins.) No additional security apps, firewalls, VPNs, etc. are running.

Have tried REFRESH and other troubleshooting Mozilla troubleshooting protocols. No problems with all other browsers (Safari, Chrome, Seamonkey).

When I go to websites i.e. PayPal, Facebook, eBay, amazon, etc I get emails saying that I used an unknown browser that I have not used before. This started with your new update 90.0.2 64 bit. I am not technically savvy what do I do to stop these emails and let them know it is fire fox mozilla browser. Fire fox is my main browser and has been for years but, unless there is some way to let websites know this is a new update to fire fox Mozilla I will be forced to remove this browser from my computer. Please advise me what I can do. Thank you. Katisam3@cox.net

Late last week when I went to dropbox.com to get some work files, I found that homepage looking as if it was shifted up (see image attachment). The upper areas like where the search bar is has become hidden behind the address bar area of Firefox, and I can't seem to fix it no matter what. I've tried clearing cache/cookies, resetting the zoom, and even in a private window it still has the same issue.

When I reached out to dropbox's support team, they came to the conclusion that it's something to do with the firefox browser itself, as logging through other web browsers like Microsoft Edge doesn't repeat this problem. I haven't done anything new to firefox like installing new extensions or anything, though I remember that there was an update recently and this might be the first time I've accessed dropbox since then.

After years of use, my PaneraBread.com account sign in page no longer works with Firefox. What has changed? Panera's IT folks spent a lot of time with me but nothing worked. They finally suggested using a different browser. MS Edge works with the same account ID and password. Why? Is there a workaround for Firefox? I am using a HP desktop and Windows 10 with all the updates.

On Facebook.com I cannot send voice note style messages and get this error message

"You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone To make calls or send voice clips, go to your browser settings and allow Facebook access to your microphone."

On another website, when I try to record live video using my built in camera, the camera itself does not activate and only shows a black screen. The microphone DOES work on this site however.

Here is what I have done so far: I've reset the pram and smc on my macbook Granted permissions to these websites in firefox Granted permissions to my mic and camera to firefox in mac security settings Restarted firefox in safe mode, without add ons Cleared the cache, cookies, etc in firefox Reinstalled firefox and tried it all again

Nothing has worked so far and this is beyond frustrating. This problem cropped up at some point after updating from firefix 89 I believe. All help would be super appreciated, I rely on voice/video because typing is very difficult for me. thanks!
