When I try to access both sites from the email links & browsers (both FireFox & Chrome), get blank page with a large black Q. Delete history & cache - no change. But able to access via my generic Android phone. Did just email one of those sites - via my phone. (Noticed both sites are somehow related when I found a contact email.) Have already tried Apple Community but no help there.

Is there anything I could be trying via FireFox. Have the most current update for my older MAC - El Capitan OS 10.11.6 - have tons of memory. Thanks for your help! Tried screen shots - think only the bottom of the Q comes up but you get the idea.

Receiving this error: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.

My desktop app redirects user to a login screen on Firefox, and I want to automate it using Selenium. My current workflow: 1. Launch Selenium-controlled Firefox browser using GeckoDriver 2. Click on "Login" button on my desktop app. The desktop app launches the login screen on user's OS default browser using the default user profile (in which case I set in profiles.ini to the temp profile copy created by Selenium). 3. (ERROR) Popup on the above error is displayed

Code: import configparser import os

web_driver = selenium_webdriver.Firefox(executable_path='C:\\Users\\mnxl\\.wdm\\drivers\\geckodriver\\win64\\v0.34.0\\geckodriver') profile = web_driver.capabilities['moz:profile']

  1. Path to the Firefox profiles folder

profiles_path = os.path.expanduser(r'~\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox')

  1. Path to the profiles.ini file

profiles_ini_path = os.path.join(profiles_path, 'profiles.ini')

  1. Read the profiles.ini file

config = configparser.ConfigParser() config.read(profiles_ini_path)

  1. Find the section for the profile to set as default

for section in config.sections():

   if config.has_option(section, 'Path') and config.get(section, 'Path') == profile:
       # Set this profile as the default
       config.set(section, 'Default', '1')
   else:
       # Set all other profiles as not default
       config.set(section, 'Default', '0')
  1. Write the changes back to the profiles.ini file

with open(profiles_ini_path, 'w') as configfile:

   config.write(configfile)

I have noticed in the past few weeks or so, many video play backs are erroring out on google/news: Example: https://6abc.com/post/middle-schoolers-create-20-fake-tiktok-accounts-impersonating/15039963/


Message is: Media could not be loaded, either because server or network failed or because format is not supported.

IMO not a network issue......

Thanks John Hutchins

When choosing biometrics for 2-factor authentication, sometimes Firefox will only prompt for a physical hardware key, and Touch ID does not work. Support for built-in biometrics is inconsistent.

For reference, I am using Mac OS Sonoma 14.4.1 with an ARM processor.

I know I can set Firefox to offline mode by pressing Alt on my keyboard and choosing "Work Offline" from the file menu. However, the browser doesn't actually seem to show me cached versions of sites after I do this. Instead, every site — even sites I visited literal moments before switching to Offline mode — shows me the same "Firefox is currently in offline mode and can’t browse the Web" message, and invites me to "Try Again" to go online. But I don't want to go online. I want to see the version of the site that, I hope, at least if Firefox behaves as I'd expect it to be have, is already saved in my computer's cache. How can I achieve this?

There’s right-click + “Forget about this site”, but that deletes the information for the entire second-level domain (say example.org).

When in the process of moving things from *.example.org to *.example.com peu à peu, then I need to be able to individually forget say chat.example.org because it’s already moved to chat.example.com but retain all information for other *.example.org hosts.

The email associated with my account was hacked and I am seeing suspicious activity around it still. So I am changing the email or deleting accounts I am no longer using. However, firefox wants to send a confirmation email to the one that no longer exists for me to change the email on the account. How do I proceed?

When I have the Firefox browser open, every time I click away from it to another open window I get this stupid graphic that pops up near the bottom right corner of my screen that says "Intelligent Work" and rotates through three different images. It is really irritating and I can't figure out how to make it go away. This is a new computer and I only installed the Firefox browser this week. It only happens when I click off of the browser to any other window.

I added the Save to Pocket (mini) extension to Firefox 125.0.2 today. When I look at the collection of articles I've saved to Pocket (I've been using Pocket for years) in the browser, I only see 8 articles. But when I open Pocket on my iPhone and iPad, the list of articles I've saved is much more longer (an estimate would be between 50 and 75 articles saved to Pocket). I haven't found any articles in Mozilla support to help me solve this. Thanks

I've recently had a little video window appear in the bottom right corner of my browser screen. I can't find any control link to eliminate it other than closing it manually every time it appears. Where did it come from and how do I get rid of it?

On: HP OMEN Laptop Processor 12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-12500H 2.50 GHz Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.7 GB usable) System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Edition Windows 11 Home Version 23H2 OS build 22631.3447 124.0.2 Firefox Release, April 2, 2024

Since the 2 APR 2024 FF update, Washington Post articles are not displaying fully. When opened, the article flashes the full version, then only displays the top photo and the first two paragraphs. When opened in EDGE, all articles open fully as expected. This issue is only occurring in FF.

Actions taken: Cleared cache, same result.

Please advise.
