When I try to open sites like HiveOS [OS] or Flexpool I always get an "Unable to Connect" error. This happens of both my Mac and my Linux machine but not my phone's Firefox. It does not happen in other browsers such as Safari. I followed all the tips in Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can but none of them worked.

Hello,

I usually had no problems deleting a single form entry that was once saved. As described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/control-whether-firefox-automatically-fills-forms#w_deleting-individual-form-entries

But now this doesn't work anymore. I can't delete the form entry. Nothing happens when I follow the instruction. I tried it on two different laptops. Right now I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-Bit). Is this a known issue of my Firefox version or has the method changed?

Thank you in advance! M.

I am trying to view a list of Purchase Orders in my web-based ERP system (Unanet) but when I go to search, only 1 out of the 5 PO's appear. I have contacted Unanet support and they logged into my account and were able to view all 5 PO's, so we're certain the issue isn't within the ERP. It's either with my computer or browser. See attached image for reference, there should be 5 Purchase Orders listed. There seem to be a few errors in my console (on the bottom of the picture) but I'm not sure how to fix them. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

Windows 10 crash - Firefox can't load websites - other browsers can - Requires Windows restart TWICE

Hi,

I am using Windows 10 Edition Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on ‎24-‎08-‎2020 OS build 19042.804 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit) is my main browser

This issue has been bothering me for a very long time and hence I have turned here for help.

Whenever my Windows shuts down abruptly (due to power failure,etc) upon restart everything else works fine EXCEPT Firefox

Internet works well on ALL other browsers EXCEPT Firefox.

My current workaround is to restart Windows TWICE and ONLY Then Firefox works normally.

I have checked: 1. Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can From <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can> but this does not seem relevant as no changes have been made to any setting

2. Firefox may have shut down abnormally, leaving the lock file in place. To fix this, open the profile folder (see Finding your profile without opening Firefox) and delete the parent.lock file. From <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding#w_remove-the-profile-lock-file> I have tried to delete the parent.lock file and restart Firefox but there is no benefit. Websites do not open

The ONLY step which seems to work is to RESTART Windows TWICE.

Can anyone please guide me on how to fix this APART from restarting Windows TWICE?

Thanks a lot!

Just a few days ago I was still using Firefox 84 where all fonts were displayed properly in the font select options.

After upgrading the browser to 85 (or 85.0.1/85.0.2 maybe), all fonts installed later in the system have disappeared from the selection list, and the selected option has become the default option.

Attachments:

  • Pic.1 - Fonts installed in system such as Inter(sans-serif), JetBrains Mono(monospace)
  • Pic.2 - Missing of these fonts in browser

This was working perfectly on my old PC, but recently I built a new one and logged into Firefox and it pulled down my extensions and what not..

What I am running into, is when I close Firefox and open it back up my tabs that were in containers do re-open but they are no longer in their respective container. I have to right click the tab and select "re-open in..." to get it back in the correct container.

I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled and it has the same result. Has anyone else experienced this?

Greetings,

I've noticed that since the recent update to 85.0.2, right clicking in the search bar to paste information on Google no longer functions properly.

If I've just opened the browser, and not done a thing with it, it will work. If I've visited any sites at all, and used the 'home' button to get back to Google, or opened a new tab to do so, right clicking the search field does not open the contextual menu as it should.

Other search engines work fine, and oddly enough, if I type something random into the main Google search page, the search field on the results page (at the top of the page) works as it should. The only issue appears to be with the 'main' search field on any but the initial opening of the browser home page.

I'm not sure of the cause, beyond noting that it began right after I updated to 85.0.2.

Running FF for Mac 85.0.2 but has issue in previous version. The history on the search bar is not updating. Previously, the list of sites would appear depending on how often they were accessed. i.e. most popular would be first on the list and the order would change depending on usage. That list no longer updates. There is still a list but it never changes. I have cleared forms and search history but the same list keeps coming back.

I just added a new subdomain on a site and when I entered the address the first time it had not been properly set up with an index page, so it loaded a defaultpage from my webhotel at /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

The problem: This redirect is now cached, so every time I enter the address in firefox I get redirected to the same default page, and a ctrl-f5 will not work since it will reload the redirected page.

I would really like to see a ctrl-enter from the address bar doing the same thing (as ctrl-f5 does for reload) but for the address typed in the address bar. Now I had to open developer-tools->Settings and click in "Disable Cache (when toolbox is open)". Which is roundabout and kind of annoying. I really don't see why this should be necessary, especially since it would be much easier to just tell people to ctrl-enter (or it's equivalent on Mac) if they run into this specific problem, with a very easy (for me the user) fix, even if it's not simple to implement.

I think Firefox Sync from Desktop to Mobile is having issues. I am not seeing the saved logins cascaded across the devices even after an explicit manual Sync option exercised too.

Or is it mandatory to install Lockwise also installed in both the devices. I was of the opinion that the built-in sync of the browser would take care of this requirement.

It would be great if support for Google Indic Keyboard is included in Firefox. This would ensure more local language use in various websites.

As of now the workaround is to open Google Translate or Google Transliteration in a new tab and manually copy the output to the original tab.
