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.

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.?

I have found these instructions: In case you need more of a step-by-step:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste newtab and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtab.url preference and enter your preferred page:

   Page thumbnails (default) => about:newtab
   Blank tab => about:blank
   Built-in Firefox home page => about:home
   Any other page => full URL to the page 

Press Ctrl+t to open a new tab and verify that it worked.

 However as per the attached screen shot, I do not have a preference "browser.newtab.url"

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,

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.

I click the "Install" for flash and it downloads "flashplayer19_ga_install.exe (I've done this probably two dozen time or more with the same outcome). I run the .exe file and get a dialog box that tells me "the connection has failed" try again later. It seems Internet Explorer, Chrome and who knows who else has figured this out. I have every reason to believe that Mozilla could fix it also. Right now I'm stuck with using IE.

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 had about 8 groups of 6 tabs each, open all the time. After a recent Windows update, I accidentally opened Firefox without restoring the previous session. Now I seem to have lost all those groups - do I have to re-create them all one at a time? If so, is there a way to backup the groups so this doesn't happen again?

For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure “Locked” is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again."

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

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. For the most part, it's an improvement, but it has some serious problems.

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.
