eBay has a captcha to access the site. I do it and get a pop up asking to resend information already sent. If I hit resend if reverts back to the original captcha page, if I hit cancel the same thing. I'm in an endless do-loop and have to use another browser. Why? I have Ghostery but even when I paused it the same thing happened. I also turned off the Firefox tracking gizmo, no improvement. I'm using 84.0.2.

Habe den Artikel zur Fehlerbehebung und bin alle Empfehlungen durchgegangen. Habe auch beim Website Betreiber angerufen, der meinte es sei ein browser Problem. Auch bereits firefox deinstalliert und neu installiert.

Alle anderen Seite laden, nur diese eine nicht.

Habe gestern mittels ccleaner nicht benötigte Sprachen und den Cache etc gelöscht. Kann es daran liegen?

Bitte um Hilfe. Die Seite ist wichtig für mich. Freue mich über jede Hilfe. Vielen Dank im voraus.

When I browse in full screen mode and try to save something (a web page or a picture... it doesn't matter) the dialog box does not show up on the screen - only two big buttons on my touch bar which allow me to "cancel" or "save".

Is there a way to fix that?

This problem appeared a while ago since the last udates of Catalina I guess and is still there on macos Big sur.

After using Facebook Watch on Windows 10 for a while, Process Explorer will show one Firefox Process with a huge amount of memory, which takes up to two minutes of high processor usage to be released once the tab is closed. This slows work with the other Firefox tabs. Firefox Task Manager "forgets" about it as soon as the tab is closed. This does not happen on Android.

This problem has been around for a long time. Just thought I'd see if anyone has any ideas other than not watch FB videos.

I regularly visit a blog The scrollable page ends with a grey banner. One day the page scrolled past to reveal an image with a link. It is not on all pages of this site and we do not know how long it's been active (who scrolls past the end of the page?) It is like a pirate link, not meant to be there The content of the links changes, chinese characters web page, choose a girl, log in for porn type ect. Names like NSA flirts.

I have told the site about this issue via email, sent screen shots A couple of times i have not been able to get on the site due to a 'reconfigering' page. This is not the site owners!

This sneaky insertion is running smoothly in the background, under a radar.

Do i really need to reinstall firefox, switch to another browser? use a vpn

Thanks, feedback appreciated. Defo time for an upgrade

I used to always donate to the Mozilla foundation because I used firefox and thunderbird. After hearing in the news that you are banning Trump or anything to do with Trump.........I am no longer supporting you. What happened to freedom of speech? I and many of my friends who I encouraged to use your browser and email are now uninstalling firefox and thunderbird. You will no longer have my support or money. We are so disappointed in your stance on this.

1/11/2121 1:29 PM CST Firefox update in Dec 2020 prevents access to my Dakotaland Federal Credit Union e-teller online banking in SD. There is, according to the bank, a "compatibility" issue forcing me to use another browser. After years of online e-teller "compatibility" why can't techs get together to make "updates" "compatible"? When will it be compatible and will I be forced to stop using Firefox because of violating "fact checking" "censorship" issues etc?

I have 2 separate firefox accounts, one is my personal profile and the other one is for school. I recently made the switch from brave to firefox and I had the same thing but the profiles were pinned to the taskbar for easier access. I cant do this for firefox because i pin one shortcut and I right click the other shortcut but its connected to each other so it shows unpin from taskbar.

bold text

I spend more time LEARNING how to do this or that with my computer. Thousands of hours wasted over the years. I guess some kids think this is fun. Not me. I downloaded "SingleFile" hoping it would be easy to use, but it's not. I used to use things like UnMHT but that' gone. Todays problem is that I don't have a printer hooked up to my computer. I bought a car part online and wanted to print the oversized receipt. I downsized the page and took a screenshot of the receipt. Took the screen shot and put it on a stick. Next I turned on my wife's computer which has a good printer connected to it. I transferred the file to her computer, but the printout was very shabby looking. How can I get around the problems of saving pages and / or printing them ? Switch to a different browser ? You must know my email by now. Please send me an answer. Ray P.S. Should I be using Thunderbird or something ? Really confused. Another problem is that people don't know how to explain things. It's like they're using a different language with words missing. OMG :-(

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox so that Google is not collecting quite so much information about me. I tried to create a USPS CLick N Ship label, but something is happening and it won't let me finish creating it.

This is not about printing a label , it's about creating one to be printed.

To create a label, I go to https://cns.usps.com/index.shtml and put in all the info about who the package is from, who it's going to, ship date, type of package, etc. Once all that info is filled out, there's a button at the bottom that says Select Service And Packaging. That takes you to the next screen where it says "PROCESSING" for second, then displays the next screen where you select which flat rate service to use, insurance, options like signatures, etc. This is a full screen in the same tab, not a popup.

With Chrome, this works fine, I do it nearly every day, so I'm quite familiar with the process. With Firefox, when I click on Select Service And Packaging, it flashes the PROCESSING for about half a second, then displays the same screen. Even though the next step is not a popup, I tried adding usps.com as and exception to popup blocking. That didn't help. I tried disabling popup blocking altogether. That didn't change anything. I went back to my Chrome and created the label I need with no problems, so it's not a USPS problem.

This is also a new Firefox installation, so it isn't like i have all sorts of addons or plugins installed. I have not tried it in safe mode, as I have created my label for today, but I could try that next time I need to create a label.

Any suggestions on what I need to do to Firefox to fix this? I'd prefer to be able to use Firefox for everything.
