Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

I've just upgraded to FF v105.0 on Win10 21H2 (19044.2075) however, I am still unable to connect to my LAN device on http://192.168.1.x:port number (shown in imgur link below)

https://i.imgur.com/G9SujJ9.png https://i.imgur.com/HR7h58t.png

From my understanding of previously reported community posts, this looks to be a TLS issue and requires the vendor to resolve. Is this correct?

Also, is FF going to stay on this path of most resistance and force everyone to upgrade their TLS certificate for their devices (with the assistance from the vendors) or (the most likely option) force every user to move to a different browser because they don't have the same issues?

Many thanks.

So i will describe exactly what ive done up until now.

Earlier today i logged into gitlab.com a website that has remote servers to remove a candidate from our server The reason this is relevant i think is i havent logged into this place for a good month or two, roughly 10-20 seconds afterwards, every tab in my entire firefox browser got the PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR error, No matter which website i go to, even google, my email, youtube, anything and everything gives me the error, So the troubleshooting steps i have done from then - Cleared cache and cookies several times - Restarted both PC and router & manually reconnected the cables on both ends - I did the Cmd Command winsock reset & restarted the PC - Full reinstall of firefox in its entirety - Disabled entire kaspersky firewall & additional security - Disabled windows defender firewall aswell - Disabled VPN services on my system and within the browser

After trying all these things i gave up on firefox and decided to download chrome and try this, chrome worked!, And then i imported my bookmarks and such ( i work from home so thats vital), And after importing them i began jumping through sites to make sure everything was working and it was, then i began logging into my pages again like email, google , youtube, work stuff etc, and eventually the gitlab account aswell.. and then, another 10 seconds late it immediately stopped working on google chrome, all tabs claim to have no internet and stick me with the ERR CONNECTION CLOSED error, Once again i preformed the same troubleshooting steps but nothing came of it. So both firefox and chrome are bricked and refuse to work.

Im currently using microsoft edge to write this and im afraid to touch anything here or login to anything incase it also breaks.

Shortly after chrome gave up the game, i tried to do a full reinstall of firefox, again did not work, i then tried to do a reinstall of chrome, and the chrome installer now claimed i had no internet, whilst i was on call in discord and using other programs with internet. so chrome refused to install, I then managed to install the chrome 'standalone' which doesnt require internet and it worked, i did not import anything this time and just browsed around, and shortly after, once again, without logging into anything, it gives me the same error, and now even if i reinstall the standalone chrome, it refuses to work, once its broke its broke for good.

Im completely at a loss here i feel like ive been hacked or something because it works then suddenly its broke forever, ive been reading up that it may be something on my PC cutting the connection to everything but i really am clueless on what it could be, this was the first time i used my PC today, i didnt have any driver or windows updates, if anyone can provide literally any context or help here it would be greatly appreciated, im not one to make support tickets because i usually research until i fix it, but im out of options

Thank you!

Hello, I was hoping someone could help explain an odd thing I have been seeing for a split secound while using Firefox. Currently using the newest version of Firefox but have been noticing this happen for the last few months. While using Firefox I will see a white box flash in the upper right of the Firefox window for a few milliseconds.

I had to do a screen recording the slow down the recording down wish was a pain but I did capture it and included a screen grab below. I am running add-on's (Three Ad-Blockers) which I do use day to day but have independently removed them and still see the flashing.

Thanks for your time and assistance...

Multiple copies of Firefox opening when I open it today.

Yesterday afternoon I noticed when I opened my Firefox browser that although it would open, when I clicked on any tab, it was frozen. I had to close it using Task Manager and then reopened it. I saw an update message flash at this time and attributed my problem to that. However I had one more instance of opening a new session later in the day and the browser again being frozen. I had to once more use Task Manager to shut it down and then to successfully reopen Firefox and use the browser.

I shut it down last night. This morning when I opened it, it was again frozen, but I could see in Task Manager that there were multiple copies of Firefox that had opened on my computer this time despite the fact that I had only clicked once on my Firefox browser icon. When I shut it down with Task Manager and reopened Firefox, again I could see multiple copied of Firefox had opened.

I checked my Malware Bytes security software and it had run clean this morning at 2:00 AM as scheduled.

I opened the Chrome browser to see if I would have the same problem with it. Only one instance of Chrome opened. Would appreciate your comments. Thanks!

Hi, I'll try to keep this as short as possible. I cannot access my mail using the Firefox browser. I have tried the TalkTalk Mail website without success as it has "timed out." I can access my TalkTalk account but when I click the "Mail" button, after about 30 seconds I get a message saying that it has also "timed out." I also use Thunderbird and although I can receive Emails, I cannot send them. After sending, I receive a message that a password is required and when I enter it another message comes in stating that that they "could not authenticate to outgoing server, check password" etc which I have done. I can send and receive Emails on my iphone and Fire tablet. I can access my mail on the two aforementioned sites using the Windows Edge browser. I contacted TalkTalk and after two hours it was decided that the Firefox browser was at fault. I have used Firefox and Thunderbird for too many years to remember and it has always served me well. I would be extremely grateful if there is someone who may have had the same problem and would be able to assist. Kind regards, John

Hey Folks,

The CTRL+ B shortcut often used to Bold text (literally everywhere) opens Firefox's Bookmark Manager side bar and sometimes formats text in the browser.

Does anyone know how to disable the Bookmark manager and/or resign this classic shortcut to text formatting only? The only option I found in the Browser menu 'Tools> Page Info> Permissions > Override keyboard shortcuts' does not offer a meaningful solution. I cannot imagine this most basic shortcut is not available for Firefox, I must be overlooking something.

I use this particular formatting shortcut quite often to create/modify browser page content for my job and would like to avoid using another web browser.

Thanks for your help!

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

I have Windows 10 on my desktop computer. Yesterday Firefox updated to version 105. Now when I launch Firefox, and my HomePage loads, the address bar appears highlighted already (like as if I had clicked on it to type in a website). It was never like this before. I tried making Firefox the default homepage- still did it. I went back and set my favorite home page back in- still did it. I also re-started Firefox between each change. Is this a "glitch" with the last update? Is there any "about:config" setting that I need to change settings on? I'd appreciate any help, I know this is a minor problem but it is very frustrating! There have been many changes Firefox has made in the past that luckily I've been able to disable, but I cannot find anything to fix this one.
