For the past week I continue to get page is not responding, stop it or wait message across the top. Allllllll pages, not just social media. it only happens in FireFox. I have ran trouble shooters, reset, etc. Same problem after running for an hour.

Since the last update. Or is that a coincidence?

it takes me tooooo long to get a job done I do not want to use any other browser but starting to think I may need to. FireFox eats up as much CPU and Memory as Google Chrome, which I stopped using because it cause my system to nearly crash. It ate up so much resources.

Yes, ran without plugins. Same issue. yes I run two to three pages at a time. Yes tried doing one at a time.

Same.

Frustrated.

Target.com, chase.com, and some other websites that I can't think of right now don't work when trying to login with Firefox for Windows, but works fine with Chrome, Edge, my phone, apps, etc.

Target gives a message "Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again" Chase loads a white overlay with a blue button and the login screen that loads after to try again looks completely broken and missing text.

Been having issues like this for a while. Firefox is up to date. I've tried wiping cookies and clearing the cache. Tried Firefox on my phone, and didn't have an issue with Target.

current version 83.0 (64bit)

Any ideas?

In the new firefox update, using the pinch gesture on a trackpad zooms in the page without actually changing the zoom percentage of the page. Is there any way to get the old behavior back, where pages would have their zoom percentage change?

Finding out that this issue has been happening for about 3 weeks now. Previously, our shipping/receiving guy would log into FedEx through Firefox and then have to print receipts, shipper info, etc that would normally size to a standard 8.5" x 11" sheet. However, at some point several weeks back, that paper size changed to half that width but kept the length. (Attached is a screenshot). I did try the following:

> Going through the "about:config" and replacing/updating the "prefs.js" file -- no good.
> Updating Firefox. It is running the latest version -- no good.
> Updated Windows -- no good.

Initially, I thought it was a glitch with FedEx but then narrowed it down to being specifically a Firefox issue. He is currently running the FedEx through MS-Edge and not having the printing issues that are present with Firefox. Last week, I uninstall Firefox completely and then reinstalled it, but the problem still persists.

His system is a Windows 10 Pro and does have a couple of thermal label printers hooked up to it but they are not set as default. Presently, this appears to be the only issue he is having when printing from FedEx through Firefox. It's like Firefox has latched onto the size of the label printers and will not let go.

Any suggestions? Thanks. BGunn

Does Mozilla 'Block' Specific 'Social Network' Sites?

I've been having serious log-in problems, as well as 'action' problems when visiting the Gab 'social network' site. I'm 'kicked' almost every time I attempt to post, 'like', and 'comment'.

I've attempted to inquire to the gab staff as to why this is occurring. I've received comment that this is a 'mozilla' issue and that 'mozilla doesn't like gab'. I pointed out that these problems aren't exclusive to my use of the Firefox browser. But I do use Firefox as my browser of choice.

It was suggested that I clear 'cookies', browse in 'anonymous' mode, not use the 'dissenter' plug-in', etc.

I explained that I clear cookies after every session - everywhere. That these problems happen when I'm in a session and the cookies shouldn't be a problem. I almost always browse in a 'private window'. And I never use the dissenter plug-in but always log-in at the site.

I've attached a three screenshots from a few times I had a 'kick' and a forced log-in when in session. Please advise as to what may be occurring here. I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
