I am migrating my wordpress based website to a new computer with a LEMP stack on Ubunto 20.04. I wish to access and test the website using the firefox browser offline. I have modified my local dns (/etc/hosts) file to include my site's url but firefox can't find it. Firefox manages to find the nginx greeting and it finds phpmyadmin which is used to manage my database, but it can't locate the wordpress web pages.

One might think I had a problem with my nginx server blocks, but that's not the case because google chrome finds the web pages with no problem.

FIrefox appears to reach out to the internet dns by default and ignore the localhost dns settings. So how do I change Firefox's default settings so that it can access websites on the same computer like Google Chrome does?

MyYahoo has a 'weather' application. It has stopped working. I've tried safe mode (it still fails). I've disabled my anti-virus software, it still fails. It works in Chrome, Edge and Opera, so it would seem to be a Firefox issue. I am running Firefox 83.0 64-bit. Any work-arounds or resolutions?

There appears to be a bug in Firefox when I use this website, https://www.ourguide.com.au/tv_guide.php?r=melbourne&w=now

When you scroll down, the headings move right and show above the wrong information, see attached screen shots.

If you use this website on Chrome, you don't get the scroll issue so I think it is either a Firefox bug or something that needs changing in my Firefox settings.

I am running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Strangest quirk happened recently. When I scroll down a Fox News article to the reader's comments, half of the comments are embedded with question marks etc. that make them unreadable. Not the end of the world but a little bothersome. When I use Microsoft Edge or Explorer this problem does not occur so it must be the Firefox browser. I am running the most recent #83 Firefox browser. Thanks for any help.

Hey guys,

Has anybody seen this?

As of the last few days, Firefox is starting to show jobs at Glassdoor like the image sent here, as per Glassdoor I have cleared the cache and cookies, but it still shows it like this, they also suggested to use another browser, which I did and they don't show it the same way, I don't know if this is a bug in Firefox or a problem in Glassdoor's code, but it's pretty annoying.

Thanks,

I saw a post on this where they were instructed to go to safe mode and Viola! it works. That is fine, but it does not fix the problem.

My Firefox browser opens all links except what appears to be links from ads or forwarding links from a site to where something is being sold.

Whenever I click on one of these I get the, "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." They open fine on Edge. Is there a setting on Firefox that is blocking these?

My wife and I are both suddenly blocked from opening a fav website: https://www.freedomconsciousness.com/

We now get a 403 Forbidden webpage (generated by Wordfence) instead.

Ditto when using the utube webpage, then in the About tab, trying to reach the website that way.

Trying the Mozilla technique of clicking on the lock icon ... I get both a secure connection message and a not-secure-connected message. Nothing I try after that affects anything. What to do???
