Hi I have been experiencing rejection of access to many legitimate Web Sites. I have attached the error I get even when trying to get to a mozilla web page. This is getting both frustrating and limiting in my desire to support, which I do, Mozilla's strategy of privacy and freedom.

I am using Fedora Linux Version 34 and Firefox Version 100.0.2 64 Bit. I did not experience these problems months ago. I have kept everything up to date as far as I can with my OS limits, if any.

I want to examine what is going on and would like to know where to look. Any help would be appreciated ... Robert

YouTube worked fine in the past, but for at least the last few days (likely longer) Firefox 103.0.1 won't play anything. Chrome works fine still. Other large transfers work fine.

Latest video I tried to play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkN8Aqb2IBc Is a DND group playing with an actor from The Outpost (TV show on CW)

In Firefox I see the initial video preview image, and after clicking to play I get a constant spinning progress animation but the video never plays. Turning on the debug overlay info shows plenty of download capacity detected (I forget the name in the UI) but very little ever transfers (bars further down).

Only oddity I can see in the debug info it puts in the the clipboard is the wrong Angle GPU. I have 2 x NVIDIA 1080ti's in SLI, and it sees a 980. Chrome shows the expected value instead. I filed a bug on the Angle project just in case. I looked on the Firefox about:support page with hardware acceleration disabled and it showed two webgl driver entries (1 and 2), both with 1080ti listed.

I tried disabling the performance feature setting and hardware acceleration (closed app then opened again). No difference.

Windows 10 x64, latest patches. Latest NVIDIA drivers through GFE (auto updates itself). Two Windows 10 graphics options are on (GPU scheduler and Variable Refresh Rate).

I've seen a couple notifications from Windows about Firefox "attempting" to use GPU hw acceleration, but I have no idea why it'd be blocked. Clicked it and it did nothing. I looked in my event viewer and didn't find anything useful either. I haven't manually set any applications to use a certain GPU. Integrated GPU from CPU is disabled in BIOS.

GPU isn't overclocked. CPU is barely. And I see no reason to think this is related. In the past I'd get reboots and event viewer errors. Even when it worked in the past I was similarly overclocked. All programs (diagnostics) I've run to verify proper functioning have passed.

When I try to do a Google search, I get the potential security risk message. I have set it to no proxy, cleared the cache and cookies, created a new profile, ran my antivirus and a few other things that I can’t remember. I’m on Windows 7. I get the same message for all search engines. I actually was able to do a successful search a few times over the last week, but I couldn’t click and get to any site from the results.

Hi,

I have a web application which runs perfectly on firefox versions below 103. Meanwhile, I had to change my laptop and I installed latest firefox version on my new laptop. I have a login page in my web application which isn't working in the latest firefox version. But, the application works perfectly even now in the older versions below 103. What might be the reason?

Thanks in advance

Seriously Firefox, after last update yet another few websites stopped working for me, pCloud being critical but not the only one.

<rant> I've been using the browser since before version 1.0 days, but tell me honestly - why would I keep trying to use it any longer when most of sites are not working as expected (banking services, cloud services, stuff like that) and Firefox isn't looking nor behaving much different from any other browser anymore - except that it's constantly giving me headaches? The fact that I like your DevTools best is the only reason I haven't made the switch - yet, but you surely push me to.

It's supposed to be Internet Browser, not Internet Breaker. </rant>

Greetings. For the past several weeks I have been unable to log in to spectrum.net to pay a bill. Currently running Firefox 103.0.1 (64-bit) for Windows on Win 10 Pro 21H2. I cleared cache and deleted cookies for spectrum.net, and performed a password reset with spectrum.net. Each login fails with: "We’re sorry, we’re unable to sign you in. Please try again later. IDID-3210."

Contacted Spectrum support, agent reset the password, and was able to log in using Chrome. I then ran Chrome and successfully logged in with the new password, and successfully changed the password and logged in again via Chrome.

Login still fails in Firefox.

The Washington Post website now loads in its mobile (rather than desktop/Windows) configuration. This didn't happen before the update to 103.0.1; it doesn't happen on my other computer, which is still running 103; and it doesn't happen on Chrome.

Until this is fixed, I'd like to roll back to 103, but I don't see how to do that. The "Install an older version" help page ([url]https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-firefox/url) offers only v. 102, and the long list of previous versions ([url]https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases//url) stops at v. 99.

Thanks!

I've been using Firefox as my preferred browser for almost as long as it has been available. And I keep it right up to date.

Right now, it's having problems establishing secure connections to very common web sites like https://Google.ca, and https://www.theguardian.com/uk. The former seems to work intermittently, and Google.com always seems to work. Web sites for some major international retailers like Home Depot were also nonfunctional a few weeks ago, but seem to be more consistent now.

Microsoft Edge has no problems displaying any of these web sites on the same computer. And I've been using it more and more recently. This is annoying since I have all of my bookmarks in Firefox.

I have gone through all of the Firefox settings looking for adjustments which might help, but none of the ones I tested made any difference.

I really hope you can help because this problem is costing me a lot of extra time. If I'm forced to switch to another browser, it's unlikely that I'll ever come back to Firefox.

Hi, I first posted this in error in the Discussions section and was pointed to this forum.

Articles from the Washington Post (washingtonpost.com) are not displaying entirely correctly in FF v103.0.1, Mac OS 10.14.6 (Mojave). The headline and body text appears normally, but the lead graphic or photo is just a blurry smear, the Comments button does nothing, comments do not load at all, the Section button doesn't work, the Sign In button doesn't work, and the magnifying-glass Search function doesn't work correctly). Links at the bottom of the page to other articles do lead to the articles themselves (which are also displayed as described above), but the links, normally shown as an image with a headline, just appear as a gray rectangle. Article display worked normally in 102.0.1 and works normally in Chrome. Articles from the New York Times and a couple of other randomly selected periodicals that I read all work normally in 103.0.1.

jscher2000, a Discussions collaborator, suggested that I toggle the Reader View switch. When I do that, the article text displays fine but there are no photos or graphics. In-article links (to sources, other articles, etc.) do work; links to other Washington Post articles produce the same result (very blurry lead photo, no photos at all in the body of the article, Sign In, Section and Comments buttons not working, etc.).

Because the Sign In button on the newly opened article does not work, I can't verify that I am indeed logged in, even though I am logged in on the main washingtonpost.com page.

jscher2000 also suggested that "One possible reason for the content to look blurred on a news site would be if one of your add-ons removed a forced-subscription overlay without cleaning up fully. However, if you are already a subscriber, then that would be unlikely (assuming you are signed in)." I don't quite know what to do about this -- I don't know what the forced-subscription overlay is or where I'd find it or what to do about it. I do have several add-ons installed, mostly to block ads and trackers and promote security. Also, as I mention, I can't verify whether I am still signed in when I open a new article because the new article displays a non-working Sign In button even though I'm signed in on the main page. So I'm kind of stuck on that one.

Everything I describe here was not a problem in FF102.0.1 -- things worked fine. After upgrading to FF103 and finding the problems, I went backward and reinstalled FF102, and after some fumbling around got my old profile installed. Everything worked normally. And everything works normally with the same Web sites and pages in Chrome.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this. In the meantime, I'll go back to FF102.0.1 and stand by for further developments.

Hello,

I've been using firefox for a while. A few versions ago (I don't remember the correct version), I started noticing some sites have broken font (defaulting the base font as used font is not available) and/or icons not being displayed.

I started investigating my extensions (I'm using ublock origin) and standard protection from firefox. Inside the console and found out that fonts (in my example at least) are being block by CORS policy.

E.g: "Blocking of a cross-origin request: the "Same Origin" policy does not allow viewing the remote resource located at https://fonts.gstatic.com/s/materialicons/v135/flUhRq6tzZclQEJ-Vdg-IuiaDsNc .woff2. Reason: CORS request failed. Status code: (null)." on website "https://materializecss.com/"

That is not breaking the browser but is kinda annoying. How can I do to allow fonts to be downloaded and used ? I've checked with other browsers (chrome/chrome-like/safari) and they work as excepected.

Thanks !

Hello !

I am using ff latest ver 103.0.1 on Windows-10-Enterprise-22H2-19045.1865-x64. When I go to drive.google.com/ it redirects me immediately to their support site displaying page : https://support.google.com/drive/answer/6283888?visit_id=##################-##########&p=unsupported_browser&rd=1

hash is a single decimal digit above.

On the support page, there is a button labeled "Update your browser". On clicking that ff opens another tab showing website : https://updatemybrowser.org/

This website says my ff version is 45. I wonder where did they get this number from .... !

So I installed a user agent editor extension ( https://mybrowseraddon.com/custom-useragent-string.html ).

Now updatemybrowser.org says I am using latest ff. But Google Drive still redirects me to their support site.

Same behaviour seen in ff safe mode when all extensions are disabled.

What do I do to access the Google Drive page?

Thank you.

This is becoming a real problem. I still use a very powerful iMac.

I actually have 5 Mac's, and a couple of Window's PC's that I use for consulting work.

Apple has really hurt their iMac older customer market with their new file system, APFS.

They have impacted negatively a lot of their customers because more customers are using older machines to do work.


I still use Mac OS 10.11.6. It is older OS, but not that old.

You have millions of customers using back leveled machines both Mac, and OS.

I find it disturbing when I get the message browser no longer supported and the web site does not launch, and Mozilla does not have upgrades to make their browser work on mostly all machines.

You folks need to have a more universal approach to browser compatibility.

This is not working for me. What are my options????

Please advise,

Some, but not all, videos on Twitter and tumblr don't function. On tumblr, the audio usually plays but the video is blank. On Twitter, the videos are always stuck loading. Thumbnails always load, there is no way for me to know if a video will work or not without trying to play it.

They work when I use a different browser, and Youtube is fully functional, so it can't be an issue with my laptop. The other person in the house who uses Firefox is able to play the same videos without issue.

I've searched for solutions and exhausted the possibilities in dozens of articles and support sites saying the same things over and over again. I'm at my wit's end.

I've tried: -disabling hardware acceleration -audio and video permissions -clearing cache and cookies -disabling enhanced tracking protection -switching off adblocker -running it in troubleshooting mode -refreshing Firefox

None of these did anything. Can anybody give me even a scrap of an idea as to what I can do?

I am not sure what category this goes into since I don't know if this is a cookie problem or a security problem or what.

I can download individual files from Google Drive just fine. But when I try to download entire folders from Google Drive, I can't download them as of a couple days ago. It looks the file zips, but then it won't let me actually download the file. Instead I get an error message "Can't download file. To download this file, try enabling third-party cookies for Drive."

The problem first started a couple days ago. (I have Firefox set to update automatically. Checking my update history, it looks like it started with 103.0.1 when it was updated Aug 1) The day the problem started, after trying just about everything, I cleared all my cache, site data, and cookies. That did fix the problem. But today when I got on, the problem came back. It was a huge hassle to log in again and do 2FA for everything again last time. If I have to do that every couple of days, I'm dropping Firefox because as much as I love it I just can't.

My browser privacy settings are set to Standard. I also currently have Firefox set to delete all cookies and site data upon close, with the exception of a list of websites I use every day. That includes drive.google.com. I have since added every google website I can think of, including the ones that it looks like Google tries to access when downloading zipped folders (as seen in Chrome) such as takeout-pa.clients6.google.com.

Things I have also tried besides clearing all site data:

  • starting Firefox with all add-ons disabled
  • turning Enhanced Tracking Protection off entirely on Google Drive
  • Changing my security settings from Standard to Custom and changing "Cross-site tracking cookies, and isolate other cross-site cookies" to just "Cross-site tracking cookies"
  • Changing my security settings from Standard to Custom and not blocking any cookies at all
  • Going into about:config and changing the network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault setting from false to true (It was on false when problem started. I changed it back after troubleshooting.)
  • Doing all of the above in various combinations

If it matters, when I was changing the laxByDefault setting, I can see two other settings with that phrase but I don't know what they do exactly. If changing either of these would help, let me know. network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault.disabledHosts [the rest is blank] network.cookie.sameSite.laxPlusPOST.timeout [currently set to 120]

And Google Drive still claims it can't download zipped files. I am going slightly insane because I have to download several large folders from Google Drive every day. Currently my solution is to download all files in Chrome.

I can also try uninstalling and going back to 102 somehow, but that's not a good permanent solution. I guess I can also try clearing the cache again. But there's got to be a better way. It's way too much of a hassle to do that every couple of days.

Please help. Thank you.
