My sister have a facebook page with shop that I help her manage, but for some reason lately we can't access the "shop" tab of the page with firefox.

We are getting The page isn’t redirecting properly error. I cleaned cookies and cache, even tried a new private window, nothing. I tried opening in edge and everything worked like no problem.

The page is the following. https://www.facebook.com/hadrastico/shop

We experienced problems both in my workstation and my sister's laptop that also use firefox (latest version, windows 10 up to date).

Any idea? Should I fill a bug or something?

There is no indication of progress while a webpage is downloading. I'm looking for something like the rotating hour glass, or a rotating circle of dots. Only when the process is done do we get the page's icon on the tab. As it is, I never know if my request to open a webpage is working or if the computer has locked up. It must have changed with the latest update because, although I can't remember exactly how Firefox previously indicated loading in progress, I instantly noticed the LACK of it as soon as I booted up the newest version.

Thank you.

Every search I perform using google is being hyjacked by yahoo. I have read that many other users are having the same problem. I have tried to follow the steps to remove the add-on or extension but when I click on "add-ons" or extensions from the menu it just opens a new blank tab in my browser. When I click on search in the preferences menu, google is the only search engine checked in all of my selections. Please help me get rid of the yahoo search.

I asked this previously on Twitter and after the fixes suggested didn't work (at least not permanently), support on Twitter sent me here. (Would have been nice for you to determine the appropriate forum and topic rather than me having to do it, by the way, "AT").

I am still getting a dragging slow Firefox using what seems like an inordinate amount of memory (though I could be wrong, check the images). My first message to support included the first image with the comment: "Yes, I've already refreshed Firefox. Yes, I've cleared my cache. Yes, I've removed all of my extensions/add-ons, though I need them back now." I then followed the instructions to try "disabling Firefox Hardware Acceleration and deleting content-prefs.sqlite".

Deleting sqlite and disabling FHA seemed to work for a while but a) is there a script I can run to auto-delete the content-prefs.sqlite daily so I can depend on your browser. And more pressing, b)second image memory usage.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi Guys and Girls,

For the love of all that is keeping me alive at the moment please help solving the issue of spell checker not working.

I have a new MacBook Pro and setup Firfox by installing it and siging in to sync.

The spell checker does not underline the words as I type here or in Google or WhatsApp Web.

Also when I right click no language opion appears.

I does work in Gmail for some weird reason.

After follwing a suggestion of installing an add-on dictionary and resarting Firefox, no change came about.

See attached for more...

Thanks in advance for your help.

Viewing a national newspaper site today, Firefox popped up an odd message Continue to installation of Flash player. It then loads (tries) https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu and an ID string. I think I can run Flash already on my browser so why do I have to do this?

The URL worries me, it may be genuine but would like confirmation it is. As mentioned I can already see/use Flash so why the message?

Search for https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu returns nothing other than an Alexa position. Thanks in advance. McP/

Hey,

since a few months now, firefox is bugging me. But I don't want to go Chrome, so please please help me.

I have a sync account with bookmarks etc saved. But since the last update, firefox randomly freezes and after terminating it, often re-opens with prompt to create new User profile or exit. "New User Profile" clicked then means, that it is a blank browser, I have to sign in (it remembers the bookmarks), but all browser settings, add-ons etc need to be re-set.

Now, it is up to several times a day like this and I don't get, why. Anybody got an idea?

Cheers.

P.S. here my browser specifics: in troubleshooting data

Your webpage https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-repeatedly-opens-empty-tabs-... accurately describes the problem, but the solutions offered don't fit.

I don't want to start a new session (I keep a great deal in tabs) and this isn't a problem with crash or unexpected close. It has nothing to do with content type. It has nothing to do with unwanted content. The pages are blank.

I'm writing because I have a particular website I want to visit and Firefox refuses it open it. I click on a link. I get a blank page. I copy the link to a new tab. I get a blank page. I shut down and restart Firefox I get a blank page. I rebooted the computer, I get a blank page. Sometimes it helps to press extra firmly on mouse buttons. Not today. Sometimes it helps to copy the link and use Paste and Go, not today.

At least this time the reload button is clickable -- not that clicking it does anything. There are times when the reload button is grayed out. There are times when the destination URL doesn't even show up in the URL bar.

This problem has been going on for many months, perhaps more than a year. Usually the work arounds work. Not today.

I get it that a problem is hard to fix if the software developers can't make it happen. I used to be a programmer. So I would be glad to try to help developers fix this problem.

Hola

Cada vez que uso el certificado digital, queda de forma automática para su uso, sin volver a preguntar para los futuros accesos. Viene motivado porque la primera vez que haces uso del certificado queda siempre marcada la casilla de verificación que indica "Recordar esta decisión". Si la desmarcas, al volver a acceder la próxima vez, vuelve a estar marcada de forma automática, por lo que tienes que desmarcarla antes de acceder con el certificado. ¿Cómo puedo hacer que de forma predeterminada esa casilla de verificación de "Recordar esta decisión" quede desmarcada para futuros accesos? Gracias.
