My Firefox has started refusing to open certain websites which I have previously accessed. These include, but I suspect are not limited to: warhorn.net foambrain.com mybestjudymerch.com

Google Chrome on this computer will open these sites, as will my Firefox install on my work computer. I'm running Big Sur 11.2.1. I have tried every step on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290042

I'm having a problem with firefox and the youtube webpage. When I use the youtube search box on the youtube site I can't use the space bar to create spaces. It seems to be stuck in media control mode as the space bar only pauses and unpauses videos now. I am not focused on the video bar of a video which would normally result in space pausing the video. My cursor in the search box and the space bar still pauses and unpauses but no spaces are made in the search box.

I do not have this problem in Chrome or Edge.

What I have tried doing:

1. Restart machine 2. Refresh firefox 3. Uninstall firefox

Point 3 above doesn't seem to be any different from refreshing firefox.

I am not sure what else to do here. Perhaps I'm just missing something basic?

The CSS element, below, is not rendered properly in the current version of FireFox for Windows. I first noticed it with the introduction of FF 89.0.

If a web page with this element is scaled, the image contained within the element does not scale. This element renders properly in other browsers (Edge, Chrome, Samsung, etc.), and the current Firefox for Android. There may be other CSS elements that use some component of this that also will not render properly, but I didn't test for them.


.pixHolder a { position: relative; display: block; background: transparent url(xxxxxx.gif) no-repeat 0 0; /* image does not scale */ border-style: hidden; height: 100px; /* size not relevant */ margin-left: 20px; z-index: 20; }

A few weeks ago the product reviews at Costco.com disappeared. I spoke with Costco today and they said they could see them and that I should switch to Google Chrome for better results. I tried turning off the privacy, no trackers on their site but it didn't help. Logging in or not didn't make any difference. AdGuard 7.6.1 is disabled on Costco's site. The 5 star rating system woks fine with Amizon and other sites. I am also using Norton 360 if that makes a difference. Any solutions?

I am trying to stream from a French website (M6) for which I have an account. Specifically https://www.6play.fr/kaamelott-p_888/la-vie-est-belle-c_11364952 I get as far as locating the programme (see link above) I want to see but then I receive "An AdBlocker is preventing access - please close it etc...." I tried creating a new profile in Firefox with the same result. I do not have this problem with other sites and am not aware of having set up a Blocker anyway. (That isn't say I haven't by accident). Where do I look please? I am using 83.0 (64-bit). On my machine I also have Edge and Chrome because some sites seem to prefer these. In fact Edge is the default browser because (guess what) some Win10 functions work better with it. The same message comes up using these browsers so I am thinking it might be a Win10 setting but I cannot spot any setting that is relevant. Any guidance you can give greatly appreciated.

Trying to log in to spectrum > e-mail. Log-in to spectrum is fine. Link on that page loads the basic frame and links for the webmail page but the e-mail content does not load, where it should be is just white space, and the links in the frame do not work. This happens with chrome as well, on my desktop (win10) and on my laptop (Win7). I don't use the webmail often and so do not know when this might have started to be a problem - but it has not always been a problem.

The webmail page loads well with Edge.

Firefox is my main browser, don't use Chrome much. FF is up to date. Popup blocker for those pages is disabled.

What's going on?

I am using Firefox and have noticed that when I do a view page source I do not see the current page, but a cached copy. To view the page source I first have to go to options and delete data.

Here is how to reproduce. 1. Go to a website showing changing data 2. Right click and select view page source 3. Examine the page source to see that it shows an older copy of the data, not the current data 4. Go to options and search on the term 'cache' 5. Delete the cached data 6. Go back to view page source and try again 7. Now the page source is the current data seen in Firefox

Hi everyone,

This last week, LinkedIn messaging has become inaccessible through the website. The pop-up messaging tool down the bottom of the page is also absent. Today, my Outlook Junk Mail folder has disappeared. All other folders are fine. I am using the latest version of Firefox, have disabled all add-ons, and these issues do not happen with Chrome.

Any ideas?

Firefox updated to version 89 last night and since then I cannot properly view certain websites I use regularly such as BBC news and Vimeo (have uploaded pic to show). I have restarted computer, and turned off hardware acceleration and cleared cache and cookies - these don't help. If I start in safe mode it's all fine - I've disabled any extensions and themes and tried again but the problem is still there. All was fine before the update. Not sure what to do next.

I've migrated to a new computer and installed the latest version of Firefox. I now get this persistent message when I try to access my email on Yahoo:

"The latest version of Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail". I then choose the basic Mail.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and once I move around folders for a while, (Inbox, Trash, Sent), Yahoo remembers and gives me the latest version.

How can I make this permanent?

I had to do a computer reset on my laptop back to factory settings, everything ok now except one annoying issue I cannot seem to resolve. Some websites I was using perfectly ok in Firefox before now show as tiny text/font size and or generally looks wrong (in firefox) and nothing I do seems to resolve the issue, for example I'm viewing some websites at 130% but some text on the page is still too small. I can view the same sites in chrome with no issues at all at normal 100% level, The best example I could give I can't paste here for obvious reasons, my hargreaves lansdown pension values text is all squashed together so individual text that shows on one line on chrome (correctly) shows as condensed into 2 lines in firefox, the text is big but the values beside it are not for example, any increase in the zoom level doesnt really resolve this issue, yes the text gets bigger but I shouldnt have to read it at 150% zoom !!! but 100% is waaay too small, and the values size is not in sync withe the text beside it. I count myself as fairly savvy technically, I've tried all sorts including clearing cache and cookies and checking settings etc in firefox but this one has me stumped, some sites work ok but it looks like Firefox may be struggling to cope with some sort of display extension that some sites are using to display some parts of their page Any ideas please ? Thanks
