While reading foxnews.com today, I was getting Access Denied messages when I clicked on articles I wanted to read. I have been reading this site for years and this has never occurred before. I closed the browser window and opened another. It wouldn't even let me open fox news but it allows me to open CNN. I am using my personal MacBook Pro at home. No network. What's up with this?

Any attempt to tweet, retweet, or favorite one now shows a message telling me that my account might not be permitted to do said actions and suggests a refresh. Upon refreshing Twitter, I try to do one of those actions again with the same message. Assuming it could be one of my add-ons or the fact that I have Tracking Protection switched on.

If I have an local XML file with a local XSLT file the XML file displays as expected. If both files are on my server again the XML file displays correctly. However if the XML file is local and the XSLT file is on the server (and the XML file points to to the file on the server) I get the following error:

Error loading stylesheet: An unknown error has occurred (805303f4)

Using Firefox 41.0.1 on a Mac.

This problem does not occur on Safari

Any idea of where I'm going wrong? Searching on the web there are suggestions about changing the mime, but am not 100% sure what to do about that. In

Thanks,

Brian

Why do I get redirected to a Yahoo DNS error page every time an ad fails to load in a website?

DNS Solution Yahoo Error Handler https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/errorhandler?hspart=gt&hsimp=yhse-gt&q=(URL of the page I wanted) Search query We did not find results for because SafeSearch is active and your query contains some restricted word(s). Try the suggestions below or type a new query above. To search for , change your SafeSearch preferences.

This just recently started popping up when I load some news sites. It seems to load the article, and then an ad comes in and causes the page to redirect to this error handler. Yahoo is not even my default search. I can usually hit the back button and get the site I wanted, but it's extremely annoying and I don't know what causes it.

I started having a problem with my yahoo e mail recently it started out just working slower than usual then it stopped letting me compose any mail. I am still able to receive and read my mail but it works very slowly nothing like it used to. I have upgraded my system to windows 10 but this didn't happen right after I did that it was working fine with windows 10 for several months before this happened. I contacted yahoo about it they checked out everything and said it isn't a problem with their program and I can compose e mails using a different browser without any problem. I can also compose using firefox and my msn outlook act. I really would like to get this fixed since the yahoo mail is my main one that I have been using for years now and all my contacts are through it. can you help me? I refreshed my firefox like your troubleshooting guide said to try and it didn't make any difference. Also disabled my virus protection and any other program that may interfere with it still no difference. I had everything the way I liked it before , but now I have to do it all over again Is there an easy way to do that with the folder you gave me of all my previous add on etc.?

When going to full screen while viewing a Twitch stream, a white overlay/status box appears at the bottom left corner of the screen saying "transferring data from video.#### {some kind of address}". Mousing over it causes the box to jump to the right hand bottom corner.

This does not happen to Twitch full screen in other browsers (IE and Chrome)

Adobe's FlashPlayerPlugin 19 consistently causes FireFox to freeze. Waiting does not seem to result in an unfreeze. Have been using Windows Task Manager to stop the FlashPlayer process in order to unfreeze FireFox. This is awkward and time-consuming, and it's unlikely that Adobe will do anything to fix the problem. Thanks,

How can I override server mime types, to always get mp3/rar/sid/bin files directly to the 'where do you want to save this file' dialog?

I used to be able to click MP3 files, way back when, and Firefox would ask where I wanted to save them. Nowadays it opens a new tab with a flash player. Clicking on 'unknown' files, like .sid, .prg, .zip, .rar pops up 'This is a BIN file. [Cancel] [Save]'. It does not give me a checkbox for 'always do this'. I would like the option to edit so that some file types, such as PDF, regardless of mimetype, always get opened in a new tab if clicked. Also some file types, based on extension, always go directly to 'Where do you want to save the file?' dialog box, regardless if there's a builtin player or viewer or not. In my Firefox (41.0.1 Ubuntu 14.04LTS 32-bit) I never get the 'do this for these files always' choice anymore. Googling led me to delete my mimeTypes.rdf file, and since then even 'well known' file extensions, like .zip, are treated as BIN files and I get the Cancel-or-Save box for those, too - again without the choice to 'always save BIN files'.

I am legally blind. It has become a never-ending struggle to get Firefox to display colors properly. I use the high contrast black theme. and Firefox is configured to display white text on a black background. Recently I needed to tweak the colors for unvisited links. I couldn't because the palette colors were all black. I found a fix here to toggle the state of (I think) browwser.treference.inconfig. That gave me the old options screen back and it worked. Now I can't go back because the addons screen and about:config display white text on a white background.

Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 from 7, I have been unable to just run FF. If I try all I get is the error message "Firefox is already running but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window. "

Instead, I must now right click and select run as administrator in order to open FF.

I have tried different fixes as suggested here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1075120 and here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding However the problem still persists.

And the big one is with Twitter. If I try to upload a tweet with a photo, I get this message: "Uploading photo failed! Please try again later."

So I have to go back to Chrome, where it works just fine.

Hallo, my company's network as been recently upgraded with the Zscaler proxy solution. I was able to regain internet access by following that thread Firefox: This connection is untrusted + Behind corporate firewall (https://superuser.com/questions/115349/firefox-this-connection-is-untrusted-behind-corporate-firewall) . Unfortunately that dind't worked out for Firefox Sync. I'm able to log-in (verified by getting a mail from Firefox Accounts) but Firefox isn't stil able to sycn. I suspect that is somehow related to the certification signing process/getting token8gaining access what is properly blocked by zscaler:

Code:

   1443703953083  FirefoxAccounts ERROR   error POSTing /certificate/sign: {"code":401,"errno":109,"error":"Unauthorized","message":"Missing authentication","info":"https://github.com/mozilla/fxa-auth-server/blob/master/docs/api.md#response-format"}

Before FF 29 it seems it was possible to solve that issue see here: http://www.discourse.net/2010/12/how-to-solve-the-dreaded-firefox-sync-error-while-signing-in-problem/#comment-1358006

Asking IT to allow Firefox Sync/adding an exception is not an option. I'm glad that FF runs instead using the outdated IE 9. I'm fully aware of IT policies etc, that hasn't been a problem for some years.

Huh? How do I even know what each item is?

I think the problem started when upgrading to latest OS X El Capitan. I don't have the same problem in Safari so it is a Friefox related problem. I also tried to open Firefox without extensions, but with no help.

So when I watch a Youtube clip och similar and push to stop button or close the tab while playing the clip, the sound starts to loop.

No one else have been able to help me, so I'd be very glad if someone could at least hint me in the right direction.

Thanks a lot!
