FF 109.0 on W10 Pro 64-bit

I am finding some websites, which require buttons to be pushed to either move to another page or to drop down some further options. In the first instance, a coloured button on a white screen ("Next" etc.) is surrounded by dotted lines when "moused", but doesn't cause a move. In the second, clicking on a caption on a white screen should cause the upper screen to darken and offer further caption options, in white.

I attach screenshots of the "dropdown" problem taken on another browser (Chrome-based) which does work. NS1 shows the first screen, and NS2 the next correct option.

The website in question has as many privileges as can be given it (popups, trackers allowed etc.) but it doesn't make any difference.

As I mention, Chrome browsers work OK with this.

I have also found that other websites, usually to do with processing an online purchase, also behave poorly, with non-functioning buttons. I'm sure that some of it is down to poor website design, but not all.

Having tested all the settings, I am reluctantly drawn to the conclusion that this might be yet another add-on-caused problem. In normal circumstances, I would tackle this with the "binary elimination" of add-ons (turn off half, in half Y/N etc.). However, as this is a financial site which is itself a nightmare to use when running properly, and I cannot keep logging on and off, as eventually it will probably block me (and me from my money) as some sort of security thing.

If anyone has any suggestions or experience of this problem, I'd welcome a heads-up. Otherwise it'll be other browsers only.

Allows me to login and presents data fine. Go to "cash in" rewards and there is a box to check on last step to certify you agree to terms and conditions. Have had no problem doing so for 2 yrs + or -.......wont allow box to be checked now. Citizens help line was unaware of any problems and suggested I try another browser. Sure enough I down loaded chrome and all was well. Thanks for what you all do with and for FF. BTW I'm on 109.0 at this writing and there are other "buttons" that don't work either on same site like return home but those are not showstoppers. My rewards cash is !!

About three months ago, I changed the AO3 site skin to the Low Vision option, because I wanted to see if I could fix the then minor issue of not being able to see bold with my screen-reader, NVDA, when reading fics on the site. Some of the bold I knew to be there because I had personally put it in.

When I changed the skin, I was dismayed to find I could not only still not see bold, but I could no longer see italics with NVDA either. The AO3 sidebar menu was also tucked away behind a dropdown button, but I could open that up and get to the controls, so I didn't mind that so much. The formatting, however, posed a real problem, since italics are used for, among other things, emphasis, telepathic speech, and the speech of Pokémon in fanfics featuring humans who can understand Pokémon. So I definitely wanted this problem fixed.

I thought I could simply change the site skin back, but to my further dismay, switching back to the Default skin did not restore my former view of the site's pages. I began trying other things, seeking advice from other tech-savvy acquaintances after I'd exhausted all the possible fixes I could think of to no effect. Here is a list of everything I've already tried:

  • As mentioned before, changing the site skin back with the buttons on the site
  • Soft/Hard-Refreshing the page.
  • Logging out of and back into my AO3 account to artificially end the session.
  • Restarting the computer, and NVDA, by extension.
  • Disabling each of the three extensions I have in Firefox, just in case one of them had caused the issue.
  • Viewing the site while logged out to see if that made a difference.
  • Cleared browser cache, and when that failed to help, also cleared specifically the AO3 cookies.
  • Created a clean Firefox profile with no settings changed and no extensions added, pasted url of one of the pages I was using as a test into the address bar. Still no formatting visible.
  • Viewed page in Incognito mode.
  • Briefly thought I had a solution when I found the Page Styles submenu in the View menu, set the page to No Style. Got my old sidebar back, but not the formatting, and lost even that change after a refresh. Not ideal solution.
  • Downloaded the portable version of Firefox, opened it and pasted in a url again. Still no formatting.
  • Reluctantly, opened AO3 in Google Chrome. Could see all the formatting with NVDA when logged out, and when I logged in, could still see the formatting.

I also discovered Reader View while testing some of these things, and this allowed me to read the text of a fic or chapter with all its formatting, but that view doesn't include the Author's Notes, or the comments, and that sacrifices some of the nuance of those because I don't see the emphasis on any words/phrases without the formatting.

I have contacted the AO3 support team, but they are just as confused as I am and don't know what could have happened. They say they haven't changed anything on the site that they could pinpoint as causing this problem.

I have tried asking on the BlindTech email list I'm subscribed to, which is where I was given the link to Portable Firefox, but I have exhausted all their ideas as well, some of which were included in the above list.

Now I come to you. Please, if you can shed any light on what might have caused this problem, I would deeply, sincerely appreciate it.

A post having the same problem as I do.

Hi,

Recently I got a new gaming monitor (Asus XG27AQM, 240hz, 270hz overclock by factory). Evey time I boot up, open Firefox, and start Disney+ site, my monitor would shutdown after showing white noise screen for like quarter of a second.

Then after reading an article (link attached) with the same problem that I have, I tried to replicate the problem using Brave Browser, and there was no issue there. Then I uninstalled Firefox using an advanced uninstaller to remove all traces of files, keys, and others, then reinstalled a clean new Firefox, opened up Disney+ site and the same problem happened. The only solution that I don't know how to apply is how to reset Firefox completely, but I doubt it would solve it since I completely uninstalled & reinstalled it without leaving any traces back.

The following can be removed from being the cause of the problem, since I've double checked them and confirmed them in all ways possible: Monitor's Settings, 270hz overclock, DisplayPort, Windows 10 Pro settings, gaming related settings, power settings & updates , Graphics Card.

I've attached a link for a post that's describing the same issue that I'm having, just to save some time and maybe provide more description to my issue. I would highly recommend viewing it since it contains an answer to my issue which could be the right solution.

Thanks a lot in advance, I would highly appreciate any help. Have a great one.
