Third visit. Tried all recommendations with no luck. Just turned off enhanced tracking protection, again, with no luck. Edge continues to work just fine. I am getting very close to the point where I simply purge Firefox from my computer, after I have been using it ever since it appeared on the scene years ago. I am at caribsailor@yahoo.com, which I will reach through Edge.

When I go to websites i.e. PayPal, Facebook, eBay, amazon, etc I get emails saying that I used an unknown browser that I have not used before. This started with your new update 90.0.2 64 bit. I am not technically savvy what do I do to stop these emails and let them know it is fire fox mozilla browser. Fire fox is my main browser and has been for years but, unless there is some way to let websites know this is a new update to fire fox Mozilla I will be forced to remove this browser from my computer. Please advise me what I can do. Thank you. Katisam3@cox.net

After updating from 89.0.2 to 90.0.2, FireFox browser cannot open ANY webpage. Occurs on a 2017 iMac both in OSX 10.14.6 and also OSX 11.4 after upgrade. (Also, “Checking for updates…” in “About Firefox” never connects, just spins.) No additional security apps, firewalls, VPNs, etc. are running.

Have tried REFRESH and other troubleshooting Mozilla troubleshooting protocols. No problems with all other browsers (Safari, Chrome, Seamonkey).

Full URL of old Google searches appearing as a suggestion in the address bar. How to hide or disable it?

Hi everyone.

There's a behavior with the "search suggestions" feature in the address bar that works differently than I'd expect. I show a real example below:

1 - I did a search with the phrase "mercado livre" using the address bar suggestions 2 - I visited the website www.mercadolivre.com.br 3 - I close the window and open I new one 3 - When I start typing the word "mer" with the intention of opening the site again, the address bar suggests as the first option the URL "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=market +free". This is the URL of the search done in step 1. You can see thin in the image attached.

What I really hope is that in step 3, it lists the URL "www.mercadolivre.com.br" (my history), and below that, the other search suggestions. It doesn't make sense to me to list the full Google search url as a suggestion, as in step 3.

Is there any way to hide or disable this kind of suggestion? Note that I don't want to disable all suggestions from previously visited sites, just the old searches´ full URL types from step 3.

Thanks.

Hello,

As stated, when I connect to public networks (namely Starbucks' and Panera's) Firefox will not successfully load their connection portals. A new tab will open, and "www.msftconnecttest.com/redirect" will begin loading, but go nowhere. Each time I am forced to open Microsoft Edge to paste that link in and the connection proceeds.

Has anyone encountered this before?

I have used Firefox as my main browser for years now and I really like it. However, for the past 5 or 6 months I haven't been able to sign into my online banking at all with Firefox. I have to use Chrome. It allows me to put in my username and password but then it just takes me to another sign in view.

Recently I was on another site, trying to purchase a few items and it would not allow me to use the "add to cart" button, only the buy now. But then when I went back to the products, if I added something else to the cart, it wiped out the first thing I had added.

In both of these cases, I have gone to Chrome and used the functions and signed in with no issues. I don't want to have to use different browsers for different things. Is there anything you can advise?

The sites are: https://www.simplii.com/en/home.html and https://amaranthstoneware.ca/

My Firefox is up to date (just today and I tested the bank sign in again, with my fingers crossed).

Thank you.

The comments section of the Washington Post does not display. It just shows grey for the comment area. When I place the cursor on the comments, it says "loading". But it never loads. The article itself displays properly. This happened after WaPo updated their website. I have taken the following steps with no change:

- Cleared the cache. - Disabled/Remove Ad Blocker and UBlock.

Tried opening the pages in different browsers. Same issue with Chrome, but works with Edge. Appreciate any help.

After the last update to version 90.0, I can't continue to use firefox browser. The problem is about opening google sites (youtube, gmail). Other websites seems to work normal, but I can't open youtube and gmail now (google.com itself works heavily). When I type url and click enter, it takes so much time to load, often not loading the site or partially load. Other browsers installed on the same system works normally with the "problematic" websites. I tried hard reload (ctrl+f5), cleaning all browser data, and uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the mentioned actions helped. Please help me to identify and solve the issue.

I was searching for some music online, and I came across a website. It redirected me to a duplicate page, that is designed exactly like Firefox Addons. Now that site automatically loads whenever I open my Firefox browser and keeps installing an addon without any permissions, even if the "Get addon" button isn't clicked. The URL of the site is https://black-mode-for-browser.site/Dark%20Fox%20%E2%80%93%20Get%20this%20Theme%20for%20%F0%9F%A6%8A%20Firefox%20(en-US).php. Please beware before checking on this link.

I have a new asus laptop. Firefox worked ok when I first set it up. But a couple days later, it would open but would notload any web pages. It would open in settings and other topics on the menu but no pages. At first I got the roor code vcruntime140_1.dll. I did the steps to fix that. I have run scandisk and chkdsk and any other solution suggested. Nothing has fixed it. It runs fine on my desktop pc. When I download it, I get the 0xc00000ba code and application cannot start.

Hi, I am an Australian living in South Korea. For certain websites (like Netflix help) from Google I click on the link https://help.netflix.com but it redirects me to https://help.netflix.com/ko/node/13245 which is all in Korean.

I would like to go to an English page, as my Korean is limited.

My Firefox language settings are English. My Google search settings are Australia (instead of current region).

My Google home page is fine so I don't need the www.google.com/ncr

Please help. Thanks, Clint.
