Sir, my hp desktop PC is having -- windows10, Firefox, connect cable Broadband with 100mbps speed, Ethernet, periodically updated. I am very much fond of watching English/Foreign language movies having English CC/Subtitles, online streaming, generally on paid channels e.g. Netflix, prime video, Hotstar, you tube etc. I am not proficient in English language. To read the English CC/subtitles, I have to pause the streaming, read the subtitle and then start the streaming (pause-start, pause-start). After about 15 minutes watching the film, the screen becomes black (no video), with a no signal detected message. But audio/sound remains continue. Then I switch off the PC, restart it, and watch the movie for next 15 minutes., then again black screen.This cycle goes on. But When I watch the film continuously, without pause-start function, then there is no black screen problem. In my opinion this repeated pause-start function causes the black screen problem. Without pause-start function, I cannot watch these movies. I tried some online mentioned solutions without success. Please help me in solving this problem in a simple way as I am not perfect in computer science. Regards.

I basically hate exclamation marks. I want to hide them. They are mainly in ads, in pages contents, everywhere. Buy! Do! Now! It is most disturbing character and it should be forbidden in non-meaningful manners. Years ago I saw such extension but I lost it due to many Firefox updates, which disabled some of them.

Some stupid admakers go wild and put it in end of every button and line.

Please help

Hello there, for past few days I'm having issues mainly on Twitch.tv - the streams do work fine, but whole website is displayed as text - Avatars, emotes, badges are displaying as text, or don't display at all, I'm attaching screenshots as examples. What I've tried - restarting PC, router, full re-install of Firefox, disabling all add-ons and uinstalling them (7tv and FFZ), private mode, troubleshooting mode, creating a new profile in Firefox, checked firewall settings, checked AV settings and did multiple scans - nothing was found, tried changing Firefox security Settings, also cleared cache and cookies.

I think that's everything - I was doing everything that was in the article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems

Regarding other websites - this is completely random, mail works, some websites also do, but on some it gets stuck, like for example when I have to do a 2FA somewhere and get a pop-up window to click "login" or type a code, it just gets stuck and nothing shows up.

Not sure if this helps, but exactly same issues appear on different browsers - Chrome, Edge, but only on PC. I tried Firefox on mobile and it worked just fine.

If I can provide more details please let me know, I did attach the "Troubleshooting Information" so hopefully this also helps.

Thank you in advance!

I couldn't sign in to my Ring App and received Incompatible Browser error message. Ring Support told me the new version of their app, which uses my default browser to log only works with Chrome or Samsung Browsers (I've never heard of Samsung Browser). Furthermore, they said I had to delete Firefox from my mobile device in order to get Ring App to work.

This seems ridiculous. What's the problem here please??

I prefer to use Firefox, why do I have so many compatibility issues?

Hi,

example given:

<a alt="bla" onclick="return gtag_report_conversion('mailto:chief@example.com?subject=bla%20bla%20bla&body=more%20bla%20bla');" href="mailto:chief@example.com?subject=bla%20bla%20bla&body=more%20bla%20bla"></a>

works well with Chrome, Edge, Samsung but NOT with Firefox. Without the onclick-Event it works with Firefox too

<a alt="bla" href="mailto:chief@example.com?subject=bla%20bla%20bla&body=more%20bla%20bla"></a>

As the onclick is essential I wonder if there is a fix for the fox?

Thanks in advance, Alex

I'm running Windows 10, Firefox Release 126. I had the same issue with the previous version of Firefox. I was hoping 126, would fix the Chase Bank issue.. But it did not I read several articles from FF users, I checked my User Agent Settings, they are correct. Called Chase, they said use Chrome as Firefox does not have the 'needed code' to work with Firefox. Been using Firefox with Chase for at least 5 years.

Please help, Thank you

Almost consistently every day and often multiple times a day, Firefox will freeze up, unable to load new tabs, and sometimes will display a message that the browser has updated and requires a restart. Upon restart (when fozen), I'm prompted to create a new profile because I'm using an 'older version of Firefox'. After creating a new profile, I'm able to update the browser and switch back to my original profile.

Although this is a relatively easy fix, Firefox requiring me to restart my browser without being able to do anything else is disruptive alone, but not even completing the auto updates, crashing, and requiring me to do a workaround just to keep using the browser is driving me back to a more stable browser.

I don't remember updates requiring a restart before, or maybe they didn't happen enough to cause issues in my workflow.

I have tried using the 'restore' feature in the uninstaller hoping that it might resolve the issue with no results, but I haven't found any reasonable other options with my searches online.

We use a firewall that doesn't support the ZSTD standard yet so I need the ability to turn it off on the Firefox browser. I haven't figured out how to do that yet since the new version came out with support for it this week. (We have turned it off for Chrome based browsers already.) It tends to break a few of hte websites we are using.

Thanks.

I have a fresh install of firefox on a fresh install of windows 11. I am trying to login to my dropbox account and when I get to the MFA page the "Continue" button does nothing.

There are no add-ins installed in firefox and I tried it in safe mode as well. I turned off enhanced tracking protection. The site works fine in firefox on another machine. It works in other browsers on the same machine.

Dropbox support seems to be unwilling to help, they just told me to use a different browser.
