During an online transaction I get into a loop where Firefox reports "Firefox prevented this page from reloading automatically". I respond with Allow but the situation repeats. I have changed the settings to standard for this particular website, but the problem persists and appears to be the reason that the transaction eventually fails. What other settings or adjustments do I need to make to allow Firefox to automatically reload a page on a trusted site?

As of two to three days ago (ca 20/05/22) when navigating to a website (regardless of whether it has been previously visited or not) a message appears stating "PK not found (e1)". I have to click it in order to view the website. Sometimes the message also has a checkbox stating "Allow notifications like this from www.example.com to take you to their tab". I am using the latest FFox 100.0.2 and am fairly sure the problem started after the update before the last one (the last one was this morning 22/05/22).

Sometimes when I open up firefox and try to navigate to a page, the browser refuses to load the page I want, instead it hangs on loading something else- contile-images.services.mozilla.org. It will sometimes do this for as long as several minutes before proceeding to the webpage I actually want to view. How do I fix this?

Hello... EVERY time I try to sign into my Yahoo email, I have to go through hoops to actually get there. When I click the box that says ...never ask on this device again, your system ignores it. This "Added Security" is not helpful. nor is it adding any security to anything. All you are doing is making me look for other web browsers. Google Chrome does not do this. Safari does not do this. Opera does not do this. I do not need to be contacted via text message, OR ANY OTHER WAY, to gain access to MY email account. Stop holding me hostage!!

Please tell me how to get rid of this absolutely horrible "feature."

Firefox stopped working. If you open task manager, it shows there but you can't end the process. If you try to open it again, it just shows it's open again. I've tried all the troubleshooting steps and nothing works. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but the problem is still there. I have found that I can open it if I run my laptop in safe mode with network, but it won't run in normal mode. I have a new laptop and want to move all my Firefox data there. But if it won't open, I can't move it.

Find the "switch" that gets "activated" (when using ANY private browser window) that prevents us from using "printscreen" AND...ALL other "printsreen apps" as well (such as "windows snipping tool"). After using ANY private browser, Printscreen just shows an all black screen! Once you've used a private browser window (on a Win 7 desktop)...you no longer have any printscreen ability until after you power-cycle...when it's too late!! Printscreen ALWAYS shows an all black screen!

Try it for yourself on YOUR desktop...regardless of your system!

I am fed up with this problem enough that I had to come here to complain and hopefully find out what the issue is. Every time I start Firefox, it will spend five minutes or longer before it starts to load a web page! All I will see is blank white tabs with the hourglass icon until at some point many minutes later it decides to begin loading the pages.

I've tried different connection settings (No Proxy, System Settings, Auto-Detect, etc.) and that doesn't do jack. Neither does flushing my DNS, or trying to go to a site I've never visited.

Just now, as I was sitting here waiting for the effing browser to detect the connection, I even tried unplugging my Ethernet cable and it didn't realize there was no connection available for several minutes! This is extremely annoying.

I'm using Firefox 100.0.1 on Windows 7, but I've been dealing with issue for several releases, I want to say since at least pre-FF95. I have VPNs installed and their service processes run in the background but I don't use them. Also they don't affect the connectivity of anything else.

I have two identical computers running Firefox on Windows 7. No serious issues for 3 years or longer.

Just recently, version 100 showed "Unknown Source" instead of the normal UAC authorization window which lists mozilla.org as the source.

The 100.0.1 update showed the same warning.

This only occurred on one of the computers. The other one does not show the warning.

Firefox worked fine after doing the downloads anyway, but the "Unknown Source" is not right and makes the user think security is being compromised.
