The answers I found on the internet re firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting do not apply to my version of Firefox . There is no ADVANCED under Options/General.

When I get firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting, the ALLOW often does not work.

How can I get rid of this feature?

Hello.

I am using Ubuntu 21.04 and after the upgrade I got different issues with Mozilla products. FF is: 88.0 64-bit TB is: 78.8.1 (64-Bit)

One is: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile." appears if I click on links in emails. It doesn't matter if they're linked to youtube, are an online version of the email etc. Always the same message.

I tried to assign Firefox as a standard browser and changed to another one, started the system again, ran Thunderbird and Firefox and it still happened. I tried changing something in the config editor, doesn't help at all. I checked for files / attachments and what should happen with http/https. There's no entry, which is fine according to mozilla help. The settings are the same as before the upgrade. I don't understand why it doesn't work anymore.

And second problem is: When clicking a email link in Firefox it doesn't open in Thunderbird. Error message is: "Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To use Thunderbird, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, restart your device, or use a different profile."

It also doesn't work if I have run FF and TB in safe mode at the same time or in other constellations (FF in safe mode, TB not and vice versa)

Any other ideas?

Hello altogether. I sat up my MacBook to automatically enter light or dark mode. Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave. Even if I restart the MacBook the next day, while the system boots with light mode enabled, Firefox will remain in dark mode.

To change this temporarily, I have to open the macOS settings and enable light mode. Firefox now change to light mode and stays in light mode, even if I again re-enable the automatic changing in the macOS settings.

Later those days, Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave, like described before.

Is this a known bug? Anything else I can try?

Thanks for reading, looking forward to a possible solution.

For a couple of days I cannot get Firefox to run normally again. It is stuck in a weird looking state as showed in the screencap attached. It opens and I can click on some buttons from the interface but I cannot close it or enter settings, cannot browse or anything, it opens but its functionality is completely broken... I suspect this is following a recent windows update but I'm not sure...

Tried starting it in safe mode and refreshing the browser but it did not work. about:config does not work. I can type in the address bar but when I hit enter nothing happens.

Any suggestions of how could this be fixed without reinstalling it?

Thanks.

Recently Firefox is randomly closing automatically after downloading a file from Yahoo business mail. This happens only with Yahoo business mail and not with other websites. So, when downloading a file from other websites (gmail, etc.) everything is O.K. This happened recently when Yahoo updated its software. Also, happens only with Firefox (for example with Chrome is everything O.K.).

Firefox crashes whenever I go onto a certain web page such as a few parts of the discord website and some YouTube videos. I have tried nearly everything I can find which is somewhat similar to the issue I am having. I tried disabling WebGL, tweaking security.sandbox.content.level, reinstalling, checking my add-ons, and rebooting my macbook (macOS 10.13.6). The same thing happens on safari, but not chrome.

The crash reason stated is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Here are the crash reports: bp-e8779820-e621-4739-a43e-e392a0210505 bp-29a6f662-0f4c-44d4-afbd-5e5900210505 bp-9ce6f8a8-6ddf-4771-824e-f94280210505

Dear all! Unfortunately I had to reinstall Windows 10 Pro on my notebook, due to problems with accounts. I downloaded the latest version from Microsoft homepage and installed it without problems. After installation of firefox it started without any problem, but all pages remained blank / white. So Firefox is running, but it seems that it has no access to the internet and cannot show any site. Starting Edge - no problem. I think, that microsoft installed something to block non Microsoft products! Any idea what to do?? kind regards Helmut

MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit)

All recent Firefox versions have killer bugs.

A new one was actually trying to login here. The error message said 'Cookies must be enabled' and I couldn't get further. Cookies *were* enabled! I shut down Firefox, and re-opened, and all was then OK.

. Web pages with scripts are often completely blank. . Pop-ups are often blank. If not they often don't work, like (critically) Ebay login. . View source (CMD U) works for new pages. However doesn't update if the source page changes.

 I do use <CMD U> from the changed front page.

A silly one is that the keypress to 'Copy Link' was deviously 'A', but not shown. It has now changed to 'L' and still not shown. Why? I very much prefer Firefox, and all the many shortcuts are memorised (well bar 'L' (8-)# )

However I so often now have to use Safari or Chrome to get around the bugs. This is a pain as the interfaces are different, and specifically 'View Source' never has a shortcut key. They also have their own bugs!

My default browser is Firefox but I am having problems logging into my TSB internet banking. TSB now demand, in addition to the usual login details, a One Time Password sent to my phone which is supposed to last 90 days. This doesn't last 5 minutes let alone 90 days. I have also used Chrome and Edge to check if their browsers produce the same problem. There are no problems with either browser, the One Time Password lasts and login is straight forward. My Firefox is uptodate and the operating system is Windows 10. Any advice would be helpful as I've had none from TSB Thanks Roy.

Recently (a few days), I have noticed that math formulas are displayed as plain Latex code in a Moodle-based course viewed on my windows Firefox browser. There is no problem with other browsers and android devices. It seems to be related to the automatic update to the version 88 of the Firefox browser. Is any one else facing this problem? Does anybody know a solution?

When viewing a job on Indeed, whether on a pane or a separate tab, the application menu fails to load when I click 'Apply Now'. The connection times out after a while. It even takes an awful time to go back (reload) to the page!

When I reported this Indeed Support, they recommended using Google Chrome as their site "tends to work best on it". I can now confirm that the issue does not arise with Chrome.

I have tried pretty much everything on this page: Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can

I even reinstalled Firefox but it is so smart, it realized the fact and prompted me to refresh and now we are back where we left off.

With all the releases of FF you would think there would be defense against floating videos. Try to research the topic on the Web and the answers are all over the map and nothing I have seen really works well. These are detaching/floating videos I refer to. Hint: the fix is NOT in about:config.

Probably the most annoying aspect of the Web -- not adequately addressed.

I've been having issues with double-images being pasted on Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit). I find it annoying because I end up deleting the second image on the site that I'm working on.

Initially, i thought that the keyboard that I'm using was a bit sensitive however, when I do paste of the screenshot that I've taken via other web browser (Chrome, Edge, Opera), it only pastes 1 image.

I've been reading some archived articles but nothing was mentioned about a fix on Firefox (or unless I've missed it). Is there something that I need to disable/enable on the Settings page?
