All of a sudden I can't open a certain website. I opened the website a few days ago with no problem and have been using the site for years. (I checked to see if the site is down but it's not.) I googled how to unblock websites in Firefox and nothing I've tried works. I disabled Trackers for the website and I cleared my Cookies. I added the Firefox uBlock extension a few weeks ago to stop constant website popups (after I tried resetting Firefox) and I turned uBlock off for this certain website but I still can't access the website. I also installed Mozilla VPN last week. I'm using Firefox 122.0.1. What could be the problem?

I play a game at Vegas World. It's basically a free online slot machine site. I have played it for years with Chrome. Recently switched to Firefox. Playing an auto spin slot game, Firefox gets slow and hangs after about 25 spins. Chrome will go for 10,000 spins. So, Firefox is useless on game sites. I don't really expect a fix or solution. And I don't actually expect to use Firefox by the end of the day.

I got a notice from Mozilla that Firefox was updated over night. Now when I hit a link it goes to edge instead of Firefox. In the Firefox settings, it still says that Firefox is my default browser. I do not want to use Edge. How do I fix this. I have used Firefox for many years.

Took me a while to figure out how to get the full installer to install to my faster and larger D drive, but I finally did.

Then I discovered it was still accessing C: under: D:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local D:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming

So I now have my Mozilla folders in both locations pointed to D: with a symbolic link or whatever.

But it STILL seems to be accessing C: to do SOMETHING, and I'm not sure what or where, as searching C: for Firefox or Mozilla turns up nothing.

It still thrashes my C: drive though, especially noticeable if I'm using it for something else at close to 100% and Firefox for example loads a Youtube page that was unused/not in focus for a while.

Somehow it's STILL causing as much activity on C as D and I'm not sure why...if I was maybe I could point more directories to D with more Symbolic links (or whatever they're called...I may be misremembering since I set this up a few weeks ago, but they seem to work fine).

(I gave up on Chrome...I can point a bunch of stuff at D, but sooner or later it breaks its ability to do updates until I move stuff to C...I'm guessing maybe the updater "fixes" something in the background that breaks it. Thankfully Firefox seems to update just fine (I do NOT use the background process, I just check every day), and I got 122 today seemingly fine. No idea why browsers are so weird about getting installed on an alternative drive compared to other programs...it's a pretty common thing to want!)

"Your browser is being managed by your organization" is on the top of my settings page and it preventing me from using some of my streaming services. I am at my home, don't work at a job where I would ever be on a network, what the heck? It is some name I don't even know. Did I get hacked? Is it a virus? Nothing I have seen on here so far has worked, and I AM NOT A LINUX USER. (After looking at other answers, seems to be a problem with Linux.) I am on Windows 11. Thanks!

Firefox sending multiple requests with useragent Mozilla 5.0

I'm getting locked out of a site I visit regularly. Their tech support sent me this reason:

‘Firefox browser (or some extension) is sending multiple requests to us with the browser User-agent "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)"' This can't be happening from the normal usage, so we automatically block them because they are not the requests from genuine Googlebot crawler.

The possible cause might be using some browser extension that makes the request with Googlebot user agent.
Please make sure to disable all extensions (and remove that you are no longer using) and let me know so we could check on our end if that stopped?"

How do I find what is doing this and how can I fix it?

I apologize for not knowing where to put this question. I have the latest version of Firefox installed and pinned to my taskbar. When I right-click on the Firefox icon that's pinned to my taskbar a list of things that I've downloaded as well as some other things shows up. Now I understand that I can manually clear these items, but that's a pain. I searched online for an answer and through my researching found that these items are called jump lists. I then searched for a solution for how to disable them and followed the instructions I'd found on a majority of sites that provided a solution. Even after doing this the jump list is still enabled and I don't know where else to go. I have attached two pictures showing the steps I've taken and that the jump list is still active.

Hi

I am a web dev, and need FF help on this. All of my sync data is gone, I sign out and back in twice, I checked the profiles there's only one, all of my bookmarks, plugins & extensions everything is gone. Please I need those bookmarks some of them were very important to me I can't lose those.

Back-story: I recently want to try two distro that I had been on my list from quite a while now, VanillaOS & BlendOS, I worked on those for 3 or 4 days, before switching back to Arch, on both of them everything was working fine, I had all of my data. On Arch I had to reset my password because I forgot. Then the issue started, at first I thought maybe my internet was slow or something but now on the 2nd my data is still not synced.

I even signed out and back in, I checked the profiles(screenshot below). What should I do?

All of a sudden, I can no longer open new tabs in Firefox just by clicking the top bar (sorry, don't know how to describe this: the space that sits just below the line with 'File', 'Edit', 'View', 'History', etc. (Menu bar?) Formerly, when I had a tab open I used to be able just to click that line and a new tab would open. To open a new tab now I have to look to the right of the screen, and press the '+' button (Open a new tab Control+ 1) that appears in that same area just below the that is there. Not nearly as convenient. Please tell me how to fix this as simply as possible (I am not very computer literate). I have done nothing to change anything in the Firefox settings, so don't know why this happened all of a sudden. Very frustrating. My bookmarks all disappeared too, by the way, thoughI figured out how to resstore them to top of screen. I am using Windows 10 Thanks in advance, A frustrated Cynthia
