Hi, Since the latest update of my Firefox browser to 105.0.1 (64 bit) on my Mac with operating system 10.13.6 I'm getting messages as the enclosed picture. It appears on upper right corner when I open Firefox. It comes with a sound signal. It appears many times in one hour. How to get rid of that problem? I have another application, from Sophos, to protect from viruses and other attacs. Sophos say that there are no problems. My Mac is clean. Possible to sort out the problem, please?

The message in Swedish translated to English: "McAfee: Firewall crashes via musicinmysoul.biz TROJAN-virus detected. Click here..." McAfee is not installed in my Mac...

Although I can access every other aspect of my school account, I am locked out of email by a screen telling me: "Your login request has expired. Try logging back into the application" with the accompanying tab reading: "Universal Prompt Error".

Regardless of my logging out and trying again, and rebooting my computer, contacting the school's IT dept, I continue to be locked out through Firefox. Chrome will let me in.

Please help me resolve this problem.

Since the lastest "update", (version 105.0.1) I can no longer access my messages inboxes on Fiverr.com. I get a drop-down message telling me that the website is slowing the browser and advising me to stop the page. Are you kidding me?! I'm TRYING to get some WORK done here! If I can't do it with Firefox, then I'll just have to quit using Firefox (again!) until you fix what you broke. You are interfering with my LIVELIHOOD here and I'm not having it!

I've been receiving notifications for a good while. I could click on an icon in my toolbar and it would list the most recent notifications. I could click on the one in which I was interested and the browser would open that website with the info referred to by the notification. Now I can't find that icon. I like that feature but as I research, it seems that I was dreaming. I can't find any info about the referred to icon. I like the notification but I can't figure out how to get to them.

Thank you, David Shreffler Pryor, OK

Please see attached screenshot. I have been logging onto my Online Banking with Nat West and when I log out I am now getting the message Firefox cannot open this Page. I should see the Nat West page again straight away showing I have logged out of my Online Banking. The message refers to a security issue that a website has embedded onto the Nat West website.

When I use Safari the message does not appear which indicates to me it is a Firefox issue.

I am not certain what I should do to resolve this issue is this a Firefox issue or Nat West issue or a problem with my Mac computer.

Please can you advise me what I should do next to resolve the issue.

Thank you

I frequent Creative Fabrica a lot, I have had a subscription there for well over a year and never had any problem downloading anything, never had so much as a warning about the website. This website is larger than Creative Market. I purchased the ability to download in a subscription there, my payments are all made on time.

Even then, I am trying to download free "daily gifts" (fonts & graphics), and this is the first time I have tried on my iMac, but FireFox does nothing, and I cannot download the .zip archive, even though I can download the image files.

I have been downloading from elsewhere across the internet just fine. I usually use FireFox because I like it better than Safari (and a lot more than Chrome or Chrome Edge), until this issue.

So, what's the deal?

I heard about restarting in safe mode, but have no idea how, I always have such an issue getting FireFox to restart for updates, already (and why doesn't it offer the button to do just that?).

I collected screen shots for doc. I get the message that there is a problem sending the report to Firefox. Website is: https://signin.guardianlife.com/signin https://customeraccess.guardianlife.com/overview

I tried starting with all extensions disabled - same results.

Is the development crew monitoring this? Something changed with this release that's causing this. I wouldn't mind if it didn't work, but crashing the browser is a no-no.

Hi, I have an old mid 2011 iMac running on OS High Sierra 10.13.6. I have updated to the latest version, I restarted my computer, and Firefox crashes suddenly at least a couple of times a week, if not more. Is this a problem that can be fixed or is this just going to be the status quo now?

Thanks for any help or suggestions that may help. Mz. C

I have the option 'Show editor when saving' checked, so I'm getting the bookmark editor popup window when I want to save a bookmark .

However, more often than not, a bookmark is being saved without me clicking the Save button .

My understanding is that it's a feature of sorts, but it's driving me bonkers, and I just can't remember what I need to do to not save a bookmark - hit esc. , click the star button again, use the keyboard shortcut, or whatever it is . Nor do I care to be frank, I really just want Firefox to not save a bookmark without confirmation , which I thought would be the main point of having the optional editor window .

Is there any way to disable autosave for bookmarks completely ? Sorry about the rant, it's just so unintuitive and annoying, and I'm tired of cleaning out my bookmark folders all the time ...
