I can still access and play YouTube videos but I can't sign in - which I need to do to see the videos I've subscribed to and notifications of when new videos are released. When I attempt to sign in, a screen comes up with what looks like stacked TV screens (see attached image) and "Oops! Something went wrong." That's all I get. I've checked to see if it's an issue with my virus software (Quick Heal) and they advise me it's a browser issue. I've made sure I have the latest version of the browser and I've cleared all history and cookies. Any ideas how to fix this? Thank you. (Please use plain English, I don't speak Computer!)

When I do a search using the address bar, clicking a search engine won't take me to the result directly. Instead a blue box (e.g. @Google) pops up in the address bar, and I have to click one more time to do the search. But the Firefox installed in my office needs one click only (i.e. no blue box pop-up). Is there a way to prevent the blue box from appearing?

(Both versions of Firefox are up to date, 83.0 64bit)

I checked the many threads here and have done everything including: Made sure it's not private browsing Made sure the history is not set to clear at exit Cookie settings are in default mode Remember history is on This problem started without me changing any settings on the browser. But I did a fresh install too, and that after clearing the Appdata too so that the install is absolutely fresh. It still continues. Facebook, Gmail, Yandex, and all other accounts are autocratically logged off which is absolutely frustrating. Can any Firefox developer please find a solution beyond "make sure the .... " etc. ?

I started having an issue where I do not get any audio from Firefox. Everything else works fine. Firefox is not muted, it's not turned down in the mixer. I completely uninstalled using Revo Uninstaller to make sure ALL registry and directories were deleted. When I reinstalled it did not give me the "You've already installed" message, so I know this was a complete reinstall.... Still no audio at all.

Etsy not functioning in Firefox on Mac

Hello, I use Firefox on my Mac, and I'm a seller on Etsy. For several days now, I have not been able to get to any page on the Etsy site (my shop, Etsy home page, Etsy help, other shops...). I can get there on my iPhone (Safari) and by using Chrome, which I would rather not use.

I've tried shutting down my Mac, and I've tried quitting and re-starting Firefox.

This is not the first time I've had this issue, but this is the longest it has lasted. I checked with a friend who is also an Etsy seller, and she's experiencing the same problems. It occurs to me that the intersection between Etsy sellers and Firefox users might well be a large group.

The details: MacBook Pro 2015, MacOS Catalina 10.15.7; Firefox 83.0. Today is 2 Dec 2020.

If this is about clearing the cache, I'd appreciate some info about how to do it, as well as what might else could be impacted.

Thanks for any help on this!

Since the update, I'm unable to access ANY protected directories on any sites (those where a small modal dialog box appears at the top of the page asking for a uid/pwd pair and displaying the name of the realm above that). The dialog box doesn't even appear, the page does not change from its previous location, and the "I'm thinking" animation in the tab continues forever without ever seeing an error message.

Any suggestions? Must I downgrade? (uck)

I have the DuckDuckGo search engine as the only search engine in my list of search engines. There is a very annoying issue with the way Firefox handles searches.

When I enter text into the DuckDuckGo search box two things can happen after hitting Enter to perform the search. If the cursor was positioned just below the search box where Change Search Settings button is located, after hitting Enter the the search defaults to the Options/Search page. This requires reloading my home page retyping my search query and ensure that the cursor isn't located over the Change Search Settings. Since the search engine textbox is located high up on the page instead of in the middle my cursor frequently ends up positioned over the Change Search Settings button. Since I am only using one search engine, it would be great if the Change Search Settings button could be disabled. Can This be done? I haven't been able to disable it with Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit).

Whenever I click on Print Edit WE button the edit page opens but all the buttons are inactive and the PE button in the toolbar shows SUS for suspend. Nothing I do fixes it. I've removed and reinstalled the lastest version of PE from the add-on web page 3 or 4 times. A right click on the PE button drops down a menu but the one I need, Edit, puts PE into suspend mode. What could be causing this? I'm running FF 83.0, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro. Print Edit has always worked before. Does the latest version have a bug? Or does FF maybe have a bug?

Is there any way to revert from the pinch zoom back to the full screen zoom? I know that you can do the css full screen zoom via ctrl + pinch, but it seems much more laggy and slow than in older versions of Firefox. Is there some about:config option I can use to revert it? Or is it just baked in now.

Lately, Firefox is making it difficult to browse websites more and more. Pages don't load properly, or functions on the website don't work. I tried to make a payment online and it absolutely would not work on Firefox. I've tried logging into some sites, but can't. Yesterday, I filled out numerous fields and drop-down menus for a job posting and when I reached the bottom, I couldn't proceed because the captcha didn't work. I had to reload the page, all of my data was lost, and it still didn't work. In every instance, I had to move to another browser. Anybody know what's going on? This wasn't a problem until the last couple months, but if it's going to be an ongoing problem, I'll need to find a new browser.

The Tree Style Tab sidebar keeps coming back. It's there every time I restart Firefox. It's there when I install Firefox on a new build. It just cannot be turned off permanently, no matter how many times I click on the X to close it.

It has become an annoyance to have to get rid of it every time I use Firefox. I have searched the forum and looked through the settings many times. There must be some way to disable the sidebar once it has been enabled. If so, what is it?
