I can't open amazon.com. I've disabled my antivirus and have tried in 'troubleshoot' mode. I have cleared my cache. I have flushed my DNS. It's been going on for days. I keep timing out. Other sites do not exhibit problems. Chrome DOES open amazon.com quickly.

Private window icons in Win 10 doesn't work as expected with Profiles

I have shortcuts to launch Firefox in two ways, one with no commands and one with the following command: -P "Personal" --no-remote This used to show two separate Firefox icons on the taskbar. Firefox windows opened in each profile would be grouped with the same profile and kept separate from other profiles. With the latest update I still have two icons, the Default profile has a Firefox icon and the 'Personal' profile has a private browsing icon. Even though there are no private windows open. According to latest updates, if I open private windows then they should be grouped with their own icon. However, whether I have Default or Personal profile windows open, Private windows are grouped with their standard browsing windows.

This is on Win 10, Firefox 107.0.1

Any ideas how to fix this? Ideally I would have the standard Firefox icon on both profiles then, to conform with the private window separation update, my private windows would be separated from the standard windows but also from different profiles.

Been using Firefox for over 6 years as main browser. Yesterday 30th of november 2022 i went in and opened my account page on Youtube. When loading all the preview videos on the main page FireFox froze for several seconds. Could do nothing. Never happened to me before.

i tried closing and open browser and go into youtube 15 times. Always the same result. Firefox freezing on load-in for 5-10 seconds.

I thought i had gotten a malware or something. So to be sure , i scanned with MalewareBytes and several times and did a virus scan. Came up with nothing.

I did some searching on google for firefox issue freezing. Found out that users have been having issues with firefox for a long time, several months, with firefox browser freezing. But no real solution to solve it.

I use Mozilla FireFox Version: 107.0.1

No other browser i tested, chrome, Edge, Brave have this issue when visiting youtube. ONLY Firefox!

Just to test something, i went into the network settings in Firefox settings. I changed the pre-selected setting from "use system proxy setting" to "NO proxy" and activated the setting "Activate DNS over HTTPS".

BOOOOOOM --- Problem solved!!!!!

What ever is wrong with Firefox 107.0.1 - i suggest FIX IT ASAP if you want me around as a user. Your browser is NOT OK as of now. I have never ever been forced to change any network setting for ANY browser during my 31 years using the webb. -Ok, almost true, maybe during the Robotics 28.800kb/s days back in 1993 ....

Jokes aside, -Fix your Shit!

Beim Login der E-Mail Konten von Telekom und GMX wurden bisher nur der Benutzernamen vorbelegt. Jetzt wird auch das Passwort vorbelegt. Dies ist aber aus SIcherheitsgründen nicht sinnvoll. Wie kann ich dies wieder rückgängig machen, so dass wie davor die Eingabe eines Passwortes immer erforderlich ist? Über das Anwendungsmenü Funktion Passwörter geht es jedenfalls nicht. Hier kann im Feld Passwort der Inhalt nicht entfernt werden sondern nur die kompletten Zugangsdaten. Bitte um Hinweis. Vielen Dank!

More and more websites are alerting me that they are not fully compatible with Firefox and that I should instead use Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge. Recent examples are Allstate Insurance and Hewlett-Packard, not exactly insignificant players in the business world.

Here's what Allstate had across their page when I was attempting to log in:

"You may not be able to use certain My Account features on your current browser. For the best experience, consider using the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge."

There have been other websites with similar messaging about Firefox. The issue seems to be growing. Is there a fix coming from Firefox or are we going to continue to lose compatibility?

I have been using Firefox ver. 65.0 for yeas and i'm very happy with it. Except certain sites require me to update, such as Chase.com. I have read about some users saying that they were not happy after updating and wanted to switch back to their old version. 1. how would i be able to switch back to my current version if I find I don't like the most current version? 2. Will the user interface be much different for the current version and is there a way I could just view the current user interface before downloading/installing? 3. After switching to the current version, will my settings, auto loading tabs(for email,etc), pocket list of saved articles and other settings be transferred? Since I have never asked a question before, I have no idea where your response will be found. So i have included my email just in case it is not obvious where to find your response. [email removed from public] thank you very much for any help!!!

Hi,

with a lot of effort I edited three times all my container entries at about:preferences#containers, but the changes were not overtaken correctly.

Now I want to start from the scratch without having to create a new Firefox profile. How can I delete the container entries permanently ? I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension, but the entries were still there afterwards.

Thanks

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

I have looked around for a download concerning "ad remover" similar to Norton and supposed Firefox had a free or cheaper one already? For example when following education videos on YouTube (w/o being a premium visitor) it's a blessing not to be interrupted constantly. I tested Norton, works fine but it's quite expensive.

I have searched for above at Mozilla, but get articles "ad blocker" and how to prevent users URL addresses from being saved when visiting a site and these are not the same if understanding right?

Please advice link to an "ad remover" at Firefox when visiting other websites because it saves hours every week. If Firefox don't have one, my proposal is that Firefox develops one, either for free or for a limited amount of monthly cost (say $0.5-1/month?). I'm pretty sure it would be a success.

Sorry if I've asked for something that already exists, in that case please advise where I can find it. I'd be glad to download and take advantage of it.

/Regards Peter S

Hello!

Apparently my Firefox account, tuulen@gmail.com, has me as using Windows 10 although I upgraded to Windows 11 last spring and there is no obvious way for me to update that information.

I have a secondary email listed in my Firefox account, email.hp15c@gmail.com, but that secondary email is in need of verification and I am having trouble in getting that done. On my tuulen@gmail.com Gmail account I can send a test message to my email.hp15c@gmail.com Gmail account and can receive it there, but for some unknown reason my attempts to have that same secondary email verified have failed by its not appearing on my Gmail account where I have it listed as a secondary email. I also have spent time in trying find ways to correct this and to contact Google about this, but have not found any such corrective ways and have had no response from Google.

I thank you. – Doug
