Does FF have any role in logging me out of a website due to some time limit? I complained to a site that I lost a lot of typing because it had silently logged me out. I was told by one of their CS people "The issue is actually with your browser. Browsers have a security feature that automatically logs you out of secure areas if you are not moving around, which unfortunately excludes typing. The idea is if you were logged into your online bank account and left your computer, someone else could not sit down 5 minutes later and start doing things in your account. This feature is for any secured area, any area you have to login to access. It is not something we do or can prevent. I am very sorry for the inconvenience."

IMHO this is BS, but please tell me if FF could have terminated my session somehow. Thanks. GD

Macbook Pro 15-inch, Late 2008 Firefox 78.14.0esr (64-bit) mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

Problem is manifesting when I try and use Wordpress websites. Some fail to load or take some time. When editing in the backend - same issues, and when using Elegant Themes DIVI Theme on page editing does not work. Cannot open settings for modules, hovers over editable areas not behaving.

Looked at Console and it is showing this error repeatedly. Also showing many other errors too with Chrome and various OS functions.

9/15/21 11:56:25.614 AM firefox[1063]: stat on /Users/admin/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/eq2ony84.default-1556047105747/weave/commands.json: No such file or directory

First, what is the error and can it be fixed.

Second, would it be having any effect on the issues described.

Struggling to get my work done. Thanks for your insights.

My desktop Mac suddenly (July 28) quit displaying page specified fonts, in some - not all - instances, using Inspector reveals affected sites defaulting to Helvetica Last Resort, or failing to display Open Sans via gstatic.com. For comparison, my laptop - same FF v.78.12.0esr, using the same (advanced - default) fonts and colors settings - displays everything properly, as do those same sites on mobile. This is a local problem.

Those sites affected work fine using Chrome, Safari, which indicates system level fonts are loading properly.

Of the sites affected, one thing in common seems to be that they are WordPress/PHP dynamic sites.

I use FontExplorerX font management, which has been stable for years. There aren't any reported conflicts.

Application and system font caches have been flushed.

Firefox has been freshened.

I feel like this may be a corrupted prefs file somewhere, but have no idea how to proceed.

Attached images show different page display results using same search term in Google, DuckDuckGo, and two sites that are affected.

I develop WP websites using DIVI Theme from Elegant Themes. Certain information within DIVI modules such as the section toggle titles don't display. There may be one letter. The toggle character is there. When I toggle, the settings are mostly there and I can set what I need then save. It helps that I know which toggle has the setting I need from working in it so long.

On the front end, sites that I have built show images but much of the the text is not displaying. Everything is fine in Chrome. So it is a browser or OS system.

Macbook Pro late 2008 Yosemite 10.10.5 FF 78.12.0esr (64-bit)

Is by OS supported? Any other ideas. All themes and plugins are up to date. Thanks for any help. I do all my work in FF.

I am unable to clear cache. 2.0MB of cache always remain after I go through the appropriate steps to clear cache. I have tried everything recommended by Mozilla and online. A few times the 2.0MB cleared on its own but then immediately reappeared. This problem started happening around six weeks ago. I checked the cache folder and nothing appears there but when Firefox is open it always shows 2.0MB of cache and it won't clear.

We are receiving this message from Ebay when attempting to list a product (see below). Any suggestions how to work around it please? Thank you.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to scgi.ebay.co.uk because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

scgi.ebay.co.uk has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Hello! I work on a Mac and have constant problems with buffering and screen freezing. I have refreshed the browser twice as suggested.

Each time I log on or move to another page that colorful basketball appears for quite awhile. When I can finally move to the desired page, it freezes and that basketball appears again.

Help? I work from home and need to use this computer.

Thank you!

Mac OS 10.10.2 Firefox 78.9

Problem: When I go back from full screen mode, the half top of tabs(more like the 2/3 part to the tab) becomes not clickable. Only way to solve it is just to restart the browser.

There is another thing that could provide a bit more info. No matter whether I've ever made it full screen or not, the 2/3 top area of the tabs will never turn grey when I put my mouse on it.

No add-ons and themes installed. Tried safe mode and it didn't works.

The same bug exists on the other Mac, which runs an older version of firefox.

I do banking online with Key Bank and now they are saying: Due to security concerns, Firefox is no longer an option for KeyBank online banking. Nothing is wrong with your account. You simply need a different browser—like Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox—to sign on to online banking.

What is the difference between Firefox and Mozilla Firefox? What do I need to do?

Do you really want to use HTML Gmail?

You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers. To get all of Gmail's features, including inbox categories, images and quick actions, please use the latest version of Gmail (recommended).
