Hello everyone,

support for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 will end in September with the end of the ESR 115 branch. Corresponding support article

Is this still the current status or are there any plans to support the old Windows versions for a little longer?

Thanks and regards, Martin

All of a sudden, a site I visited appeared at the top of my login pages. Just below the search bar. It contains “import bookmarks,” “getting started,” “and this site.” I don’t want any of that there. I thought I had all memory stuff shut off. Can’t figure out a way to delete it. Can you help.

I tried filling out a Contact form on a website here: https://www.klineind.com/contact/ using Firefox and after submitting it, I got the message, "Sorry, for technical reasons you can't submit your query from this browser. Please try using a different browser or computer." So I started over again using Google Chrome and the form was successfully submitted!

I have screenshots of both Firefox and Chrome after the submission but I cannot attach them here, it appears. For better troubleshooting, I suggest that screenshots be allowed to be attached.

I have recently had some issues with Firefox's compatibility and which hopefully will be addressed.

Thank you.

I tried to reinstall firefox, install beta version, remove cookies and cache but nothing helped me. Seems it happened after a update.

Unable to connect

An error occurred during a connection to www.counterpunch.org.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.

So, what should the network connections be (I haven't a clue)! As far as I know the configuration has been automatic up to now; for all other sites it works just fine! Yours is esoteric and has lost me.

Twice, I have tried the following sequence:

1. Manually close browser 2. Closed Firefox in Task Manager 3. Refresh Firefox 4. Uninstall parent.lock and .parentlock files 5. Reinstall Firefox

Also observed several iterations of Firefox running simultaneously and using significant CPU and Memory resources.

This "Firefox is already running but is not responding" has gotten out-of-hand and I have switched back to MS Edge until Mozilla fixes their problem.

Hi,

Something funny started happening, but only recently. I cannot reach the Super Micro website, or any of it's sub-pages (https://www.supermicro.com) in normal mode. Though when using private mode, I can. I've already cleared cache and cookies, removed add-ons and add blockers and tinkered with the settings.

Hoping you can help me because I need this website multiple times a day for my job and I don't fancy using 2 browsers, Firefox being my favourite one.

Looking forward to receiving help.

Regards

I am using the latest version of firefox nightly. I notice this on another PC that shares the same profile. However one of my PCs doesn't take this long and it uses the same profile as well. It also seems that the pinned tabs are not loading correctly because I get errors with those pages too.

My PC uses Windowss 11 and I'm on Mozilla. My security programs are Malwarebytes Premium, Windows Defender.Security, and Acronis. There is an Extension called, 'Protect My Choices'. Love It! I have it on all my Browsers. It keeps alot of junk off from my PC. In all my other Browsers, in the Extension details it states "Automatically allow access on the following sites:" I just don't move the button over to on, and the Extension keeps all that junk off from my PC. In Firefox, the above statment and the botton is absent, and all that junk is allowed onto Firefox (Yikes!). I went through Mozilla's Help, Troubleshotting, and Search. I haven't been able to find any clue as to how I can get this Extension to work in Firefox. Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so for your time and consideraton of my sad saga
