I have a weird bug that is preventing me from using Facebook with version 79. When I write in Facebook Messenger, words just get repositioned in the message window. So for example if I want to write Facebook has a strange bug with Messenger what will show in the message line (and get sent upon entering) is k ange h MessFacebooha s a strbug wit enger

It doesn't happen with any other browser - I tested Brave, Vivaldi, & Opera. I kept the same # of other windows & tabs open. I have 8 gig RAM, no sign of maxing out from the Task Manager metrics.

I clicked an .exe to download a zoom meeting list. It installed malware. I'm unable to go to add-on's, options, etc - it opens a blank page. Redirects webpages to all sorts of stuff like porn and IDK what. How do I identify and remove?

What can I provide to assist beyond this: seems the "root" URL is spontaneousguarded.com

Using Chrome, as I do not want to enter my info to ask for help on a compromised Firefox browser. Searching on Chrome doesn't bring anything up that can help an (NON-IT) person. I'm also unable to allow troubleshooting information using Chrome. Thank you!

I was playing a browser based game and it popped up with the error saying:

an error occured running the unity content on this page. See your Javascript console for more info. The error was: InvalidStateError. A mutation operation was attempted on a database that did not allow mutations.

uh... what? I have no idea what Unity is or does. I have no idea (even looking here), how to open Javascript console, and I simply loaded the page. How did a mutation operation, whatever that is, occur?

Anyone have any idea what that means or how to fix it? If so, I'd appreciate any help.

Many many many months ago I had a problem with a Firefox update. Sent my question in and got a fix in response from support. It worked great and I closed out the question as solved. Right now which has been many many months since then, I'm receiving a lot of emails. Just today 12 emails from your support team bmbguy and jscher2000 in reference to the problem that was fixed a long time ago. I keep trying to close it out by clicking problem solved but I still keep getting many emails from them. I would like to have the emails stopped or remove me from their mailing list. Thank you....Glenn [email]

For the last couple of months, I have been unable to scroll down on THE GUARDIAN website. I have contacted them and tried a number of the things they suggested to no avail. It was suggested the browser may be the problem. I do not have this problem with any other website. Use Windows 10

I use a number of options/tools/add-ons from Mozilla/Firefox (79.0): Ghostery, AdBlockPlus, PrivacyBadger, NoScript, Forget, and FlashBlocker.

Any idea on how to solve this problem would be very greatly appreciated. Anybody else have this or similar problem?

Thanks.

This piece of shit novelty lost all my saved logins after syncing. I synced as usual, unaware of this Lockwise nonsense you recently added to Firefox unnecessarily, and expecting just the open tabs from my device to sync. Well I found all my logins on someone else's computer that I was using at the time to browse the net. Wtf? So I removed the logins from Lockwise (one by one, btw, because there's no option to just remove them all at once, facepalm). Later on I find I can't find them anywhere anymore, on any of my own devices. Why the F*CK would passwords and login information be synced by default, and what was wrong with the old password manager?! I'm now switching over to Chrome, which I hate. But not as much as this piece of sh*t.

Hi,

I hope someone can help me figure this out. I am not able to see Ebay the way it normally displays. It is only words down the left side of the page and not proper format(pictures/ layout). I have Windows10.. It works fine on the Edge browser but I prefer Mozilla. I don't know how to insert a picture here to show you. Print screen didn't work when I tried to do that. I have cleared the cache and cookies, I have rebooted also with no change. Help!!! Thank you in advance.

I'm very concerned about the recent structural changes at Mozilla as it pertains to FireFox. I left Chrome for Firefox but am considering going back as it appears Mozilla lost the war. If I don't see something announcing the future of Firefox in the next month, I'm dropping it due to security risk.

Is there a statement on it's future? All I saw was the CEO saying they were abandoning all things not commercially focused.

hi. recently I have found that I can't load ebay correctly on Firefox, it loads fine on Edge. Other websites appear OK. I don't know how to describe the appearance - there are no images, only various numbered headings, and highlighted links.( I have taken a screenshot, but don't know how to save it in a format that can be loaded on to this page!). It has only been a problem for a few days. What to do??

Hi community, I want to bookmark only sites I wish to return to, but it seems that my entire history is bookmarked. I don't mind Firefox remembering my entire history, but it seems as though one's history and bookmarks and library are one and the same thing. I started using, "tags" to deal with it, but even tags require me to dig through my library/entire history to find them. Isn't there some way to have my bookmarks be separate from my history/library? Thanks in advance!
