Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

Hello;

I often get this error message on various well known websites. Today it is Ebay. I turn off blockers, with no luck. I also check if this is a problem with Safari, but Safari accesses the same site and page with no problem. I've tried turning off all add-ons, but doesn't make any difference.

Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server.

Reference #1.c568dc17.1649623980.20e43520

Another similar issue is Craigslist. I check it every morning and shortly after being on a main search page of results and suddenly as I am trying to access a link, I will end up in a white screen. The message will be that my account has been blocked, please contact us. I have, and there has never been a response.

I discovered accidentally that by clearing my cache, that doing so will temporarily return access again and I can browse some more, at least for a few minutes then it occurs again. This is a daily event. I have instead taken to using Safari to access Craigslist as I have not had this problem with it. Again, I've given CL permissions, turned off blocks, etc. But nothing helps.

I'm at a loss. I like Firefox and have been using it for years as it allows for things Safari doesn't and it is also faster.

Thanks so much.

Search Engine Stuck on Amazon After Updating to Firefox 99.0.1 on Monterey 12.3.1

A short while ago, Firefox was automatically updated to 99.0.1 on my iMac running Monterey 12.3.1. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, the search engine is stuck on Amazon with no other search engine options available. I normally use Google.

Even if I go into the Firefox settings to the "Search" panel, it is showing ONLY Amazon as the available option in the pull-down menu under "Default Search Engine". In the "Search Bar" section, I have it set to "Add search bar in tool bar". But even if I set it to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", and then switch it back to "Add search bar in tool bar", Amazon still remains the only available search engine.

As a last step, I installed the "Google Search" add-on by 3Indian to see if I could get back my Google search engine, but Google still doesn't show up as an option anywhere, and I am still stuck with just Amazon.

Is this a bug in the latest Firefox build? Did the developers forget to enable something when they did this build perhaps?

Clicking on the spacebar, does not produce a space between words, when typing text. I'm using a Mac Mini M1, on macOS Monterey (V 12.4), along with a Logitech MX Keys for Mac keyboard.

This happens randomly, for instance, on this very message. I previously posted a question regarding another problem that I came across with the same hardware and Firefox.

I found the solution to that problem by disabling an Extension in Firefox, however, I can't begin to think where to look for what setting, that may be causing my current problem.

I'm moving from Brave to Firefox Developer, and trying to import all data from Brave... especially passwords.

When I import from Safari, Chrome, MS Edge I get a Mac dialogue box asking for my Mac password, and then all the data is imported correctly.

When I try the same with Brave, there is no Mac dialogue box, and the import process just says it was successful - but no passwords are imported at all.

I didn't find any settings in Brave saying that I had to allow password export or anything like that.

Is this a bug? and is there a workaround? (because I really don't want to have to input all those passwords for so many sites since moving to Brave!)

I previously had a MetaMask extension on FireFox and it would open as usual. Several days ago, I opened Firefox and the MetaMask icon in the upper bar wasn't there. I tried to download it on the browser several times and eventually got the download and entered the seed phrase and, with some outside help, established the extension again and recovered my tokens. So all was good. But today I opened my FireFox and the MetaMask was missing again. Can you please help me find out why it is missing and how to keep that from happening again. Thank you

I've noticed on a few websites that when I click on "login with Facebook" to log into the website in question, nothing happens. I have turned Enhanced Tracking Protection to "off," and I've cleared cookies on the site. I am using Firefox version 90.0.2

Someone else had this question a three years ago, but that was archived and the protection interface for this version of Firefox has changed, so I appreciate help anyone may be able to offer.

Dear Firefox Community

I’m a Mac user. I’ve been a happy Firefox user for about eight years or more, with few problems. The only main one has been the refusal of Firefox to update automatically, even though I’ve ticked the box in preferences for this to happen so I always have to update by restarting Firefox manually and downloading it again.

I’m currently using Firefox 78.8.0esr. It needs updating, and I’ve tried about six or seven times over the last 6 weeks (most recently to Firefox 90.0.2dmg). Every time I do this, however, Firefox loses memory of me - and all my bookmarks (you’ll understand that after eight years there are a few hundred of these) disappear. I’ve copied them in in various ways (most recently by importing my Firefox bookmarks from 78.8.0 into Safari and then into Firefox 90 - and it works for about 12 hours or so, but then on the second or third time I open it reverts to the bookmarkless screen as if I’m a completely new user (with a really irritating picture of Soraya who is a Firefox fan and presumably is exempt the kind of problems I’m having).

Can you explain what is happening please, and how I can overcome this?

Thanks,

Steve Charters

I was having problems with my home page on Firefox (Google) switching over to Yahoo. Mac support helped me get rid of it--it was malware. But now a tiny red and white button has appeared at the top of my browser. It's a Yahoo file converter. I didn't ask for it and I fear it's malware. How can I get rid of it?

I cannot even get the box below where I say yes to getting email when the question is answered. Twitter is a bunch of boxes and outlines now, and doesn't look at all as Twitter used to look. I have tried turning the Mac on and off. This is a desktop computer.

Hello community, please help:

I'm running a macbook Pro with macOS Big Sur Version 11.4

I'm using Firefox 91.0.1 (64-bit)

For some reason - maybe an update - websites and images are no longer loading correctly. I've attached some screenshots (comparing Chrome to Firefox) so you can see the issues.

Please help me get FF back to normal. Its basically useless for now.

Thanks, Jason

Hi volunteers, thank you.

I have been using Firefox for ever - on my macbook air, catalina, usig 91.01.01 Firefox version.

Until last week everything was fine - -then all of a sudden images and icons on some website were not loading properly, if at all. like www.microsoft.com and www.mandalina.com . The images are fine on Safari just not FF.

I erased FF and cleaned everything and uploaded a new browser, same problem.

Have I accidentally done something ?

Thanks
