I don't have a Twitter account, but I read them. But for the last couple of months, when I go into one, I get a big Twitter window that says, "Don't miss what's happening," and I have to x out of it. I get that window every time I go into someone's Twitter.

Also, if I click on a tweet to read the comments, that window comes up again, and when I x out of it, I get back to the main twitter page, not the individual tweet with the comments.

Also, if I click on something that's embedded in a tweet - like a news article - same thing happens. I get that big window. I x out of it, but again it takes me back to the main twitter page. So I can't read the article. (I could go to that particular Tweet's link, and read the comments or article, but I shouldn't have to do that.)

I was always able to read the comments and click embedded articles within a tweet. I never had to sign in - never had a Twitter account.

This is not happening at all in Chome or Edge, only Firefox, so it's a Firefox issue. What's going on?

For years my firefox browser has had msn as my homepage and it has never changed in how it looks and is layed out. Today it has changed and it is terrible. Using MS Edge it is still the same as always so Firefox must have somehow changed how msn homepage looks. I want the msn homepage on firefox that I am used to and like....NOT the one from today that changed. Please tell me how to get the msn homepage I want back on Firefox. Would it maybe be to install a former version such as v92 of firefox so the msn homepage is how I am used to? Please advise and thanks much.

I have been a Firefox user for over a decade. It is the best & most secure browser. Unfortunately the recent Firefox upgrade no longer displays a module in the left column of my website www.oz4034.com. I hadn't changed anything, and Google Chrome displays it correctly, so take a look. Don't know what has changed. Please advise !

First, I selected Google to be my search provider, not Bing. So why does a Bing page show up when I want to use FIrefox?

Secondly, why do items I don't want or no longer need appear in my 4 rows of tabs I can click on to access that website? This is frustrating, especially when I can't get rid of one I don't care for.

Also, making this like Microsoft, where it may take some time to actually ask for help almost makes me want to go back to them. I wanted more than they had.

I've tried changing/ shutting off the "shield" thing in the address bar to no avail. Most of the functions on the pages no longer work (The Player popup, Playlist page. etc.) Everything works fine on Chrome or my computer at work (Windows 10). There must have been a recent update to FFox that has hosed this page.

This is the penalty I'm paying to let you automatically install updates instead of notifying me of available updates I guess. Anyway here's the link:

Thank you, hopefully you can help me!

I had to do a computer reset on my laptop back to factory settings, everything ok now except one annoying issue I cannot seem to resolve. Some websites I was using perfectly ok in Firefox before now show as tiny text/font size and or generally looks wrong (in firefox) and nothing I do seems to resolve the issue, for example I'm viewing some websites at 130% but some text on the page is still too small. I can view the same sites in chrome with no issues at all at normal 100% level, The best example I could give I can't paste here for obvious reasons, my hargreaves lansdown pension values text is all squashed together so individual text that shows on one line on chrome (correctly) shows as condensed into 2 lines in firefox, the text is big but the values beside it are not for example, any increase in the zoom level doesnt really resolve this issue, yes the text gets bigger but I shouldnt have to read it at 150% zoom !!! but 100% is waaay too small, and the values size is not in sync withe the text beside it. I count myself as fairly savvy technically, I've tried all sorts including clearing cache and cookies and checking settings etc in firefox but this one has me stumped, some sites work ok but it looks like Firefox may be struggling to cope with some sort of display extension that some sites are using to display some parts of their page Any ideas please ? Thanks

Hi, normaly I used the @media (hover: none) and (pointer: coarse) to remove time animation on mobile, so that when we click, the hover state appears instantly. But recently I noticed this happens on Firefox "desktop". On other browsers the animation is still smooth. Is it something that is gonna come back as before or I should change my query, or find a workaround? Thanks.

If I change to Microsoft Edge, it will open. I didn't see anything in about:config that I thought might cause this. Any help?

I am running "Firefox Browser 93.0", and I have Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1, OS Build 19043.1288. I am unable to watch certain video's, as an example, the video in this link: [https://www.wandtv.com/news/illinois-.../article_24b92a86-32c4-11ec-a487-3bb3f17fa133.html] won't play. It use to work, but something has changed, not by me. It will play that same video using the "Edge Browser" so there is nothing wrong with the website. However, I can play this "YouTube Video": [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAJSYk5wMiA] I also tried another link in their website, this is the weather link: [https://www.wandtv.com/weather] it starts to play, but then stops and nothing ever plays. Here is another link I tried on their website: [https://www.wandtv.com/sports/fans-ma.../article_f94f4ade-32e0-11ec-9351-ef71f52b96cd.html] It won't play either. But they all play in the "Edge Browser!" Any ideas on what changed and how do I change it back, so they will play? I prefer Firefox Browser to any other browser! Do you know what the issue could be? I appreciate your time! NiceSeeingYou

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

Hi

Up to a few hours ago, I have been able to access a secure state school website on my mobile phone. However suddenly I cannot and receive following: "connection not secure" and "address not found". I have tried turning phone off, checking that Firefox is updated (was last updated 21 Oct and cited as up-to-date), disabling security app - all to no avail.

I need access to this site. Please assist.

Yours faithfully
