Firefox blocks a bank account. Bank says it is not their fault. Bank account can be accessed using a different browser. Bank account can also be accessed using Firefox on another computer. Tried to refresh Firefox and gained access to the bank account but it worked only once or twice before Firefox went back to blocking it.

The last time I updated Firefox I had such a bad time I swore never to update it again, however yesterday an addon I use couldn't work without updating. So I bit the bullet and did. I've been regretting it ever since. At best it works slightly slower than my old version which was 61.0.1. At worst I miss the days of internet explorer.

The most common issues are 1. White Wheel: When I swap tabs or open a new one I often get a spinning white wheel. This can last anywhere from seconds to at least ten minutes. I've asked around and tried everything suggested, nothing has gotten rid of it.

2. Scripts breaking: This started later on after installing it. Almost any time I refresh a tab or open a new one a script in some other tab breaks. At least twice I was just watching a video in one tab, not even touching the computer and a script breaks in another tab.

Please, I just want my browser to run properly. WITHOUT having to sacrifice my settings/history/bookmarks/addons

Recently I've noticed that I am unable to print from Firefox. It doesn't matter if I print to a PDF or a real printer: I get the same error every time: "Print Preview Error, An error occurred while printing." If I do attempt to print to a PDF, the result is a malformed file that throws a sharing violation if I attempt to view it before closing Firefox.

I have tried all the various reset printer config settings on the help page Mozilla printer help , and even tried reinstalling FF. Everything else is OK.

Suggestions are welcome.

I'm using a Surface Pro 7, running Win10H. Firefox had a brief period when I first installed it where the on screen keyboard would appear and work, that stopped after a few hours and has not worked since. I fiddled with the settings on both Firefox and my surface, though nothing has changed. Un/re-installing did not help, thought it could reset something. Any fixes or advice would be greatly appreciated.

For clarification, the Accessibility Menu on-screen keyboard does work, but the tablet-specific larger keyboard does not function. It does open and type in other applications.

Starting on Sunday 3/21, pasting an image into a gmail message in Windows 10 from Firefox 86.0.1 double pastes it. Two images, not one. Pasting text results in a single paste, as would be expected. What's wrong with image pasting?

Appears to only happen in Firefox. Tried with Edge and composition worked fine.

I found that high-lighting an Image -- (NOTE: "jpg" -- ====> NOT ".png") and then COPY, followed by a PASTE into Gmail produces the correct ONE image.-

However, if the Image is ".png", and I move cursor OVER the Image, then Right-Click, select COPY Image and then go to Gmail and issue either a CTRL+V or PASTE, I get 2 images.

Dear whoever it may concern.

I am having an issue regarding Mozilla Firefox. Since restarting my pc I have been unable to launch Mozilla Firefox as it keeps crashing on startup. I have tried various different 'solutions' such as manually deleting Firefox from Program Files and Program Files (x86). As well as this I have also located and completely deleted Firefox from my Local files on my pc. After doing this I tried a fresh install and still the application does not open.

No crash dialog has been left behind and I am unable to access the application to check through Firefox itself.

Below I have linked a video which shows the problem I am having in hopes that someone will be able to help.

Regards.

Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 20.10 is currently unusable as it won't open anything.

  • Firefox opens with no page loaded.
  • Clicking the single "getting started" bookmark does nothing.
  • Entering a search term in the address bar and pressing 'enter' changes the url in the address bar but nothing is loaded and the page remains blank. There is no indication that anything is loading.
  • Entering a url, such as "www.youtube.com", and pressing "enter" does nothing. There is no indication that anything is loading.
  • Opening the menu by clicking on the burger icon, then on "preferences" does nothing except make the menu disappear (same with most of the options in the menu).

In the browser console I see some errors and no request info (see screenshot).

I've tried `sudo apt purge firefox` then installing again, which didn't help. The problem started with ubuntu 20.04 (I only updated to 20.10 to see if it might resolve this problem).

I've tried the "refresh firefox" option, starting in safe mode, and clearing the startup cache, which didn't help.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Every Sunday at approx the same time my firefox app and browsers close and Firefox restarts. When it restarts it doesn't bring up the previous tabs I had open and it doesn't give me the option to restore even though that option is always checked. I also have re set my search preferences. I don't lose any bookmarks or history. I've uninstalled, and re installed. Same thing happens. This never happened previously and would love nothing more than to solve this mystery. Thank you much for any help !! Ronnie

Firefox is simply not working. This error has been been there for last half hour. I tried purge-reinstalling it, restarting the PC but no use. Only thing I can do is open or close new tab or window, no searching works, not refresh button, not bookmarks, not preferences. Nothing is working. Even on-device html files are not showing.

OS: Ubuntu 18.4.5 LTS Firefox Version: 87.0 (Build: 87.0+build3-0ubuntu0.18.04.2)

Only features working:

  • Open / close new tab / window, new private tab / window
  • Zoom controls (but there's nothing to see, so I just see the numbers changing)
  • View Bookmarks (only through the library popup and the links don't open)
  • View History (only through the library popup and the links don't open)
  • Troubleshooting Information page [about:support] (I've included the data)
  • Refresh Firefox
  • Restart with Add-ons disabled / Clear startup cache (Closes firefox but idk if it actually did anything, then crashes when restarting firefox.
  • About Firefox
  • Crashes page [about:crashes] (I managed to report 2 recent crashes)

PS: I just tried reverting to only other version available on Ubuntu (59.0.2+build1-0ubuntu1) and it doesn't work either. Screenshots and Troubleshooting Info attached for this version also.

Recently I installed an upgrade and since then I can't play youtube videos embeded on pages or straight from youtube. I get the message: 'Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.youtube.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.'

I also can't play videos from an online course I have been doing for weeks and a webinar series but at the beginning of the webinar series a few days ago I could. I'm now getting the message: "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported."

I'm having to use Chrome to access all these things and I hate Chrome. I'm not tech savy so please help.

I have my system up to date and no updates are available. The O.S. runs fine with the exception until I launch firefox which causes what I would describe as a SEVERE screen tearing. The description would be LARGE horizontal bands of angled multi colored squares on both of my monitors. I am unable read or distinguish anything! However when I type on the keyboard I can see the large squares changing colors. This may be a graphic display issue. A push of the power button restart is now required.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox which changed nothing

I can use Epiphany Browser, and run other applications just fine even FooBilliard++ with no issues until I launch firefox.
