When Firefox downloaded the latest patches - 96.0 and 96.01 - my computer has stopped working properly. Websites won't load, everything freezes up, get error message "Not responding". I've tried a few things to fix it - virus scan, resetting systems to previous date before the updates, etc. Nothing has fixed this.

I am unable to access a website with a saved password. I have contacted the IT people at the website and they have advised that there could be a problem with an upgrade of Firefox, that is not compatible. I am not sure what I need to do to fix this problem. I have been accessing this website the same way for over 10 years and now unable to use it.

hi, it has been 2 days since firefox starts to behave in an unusual way. when opening many tabs, and if i dont click on them (ie inactive) in 2-3 minutes, they go blank. when i click on an inactive tab, firefox quickly refreshes it and shows the page. example: let's say i have 3 open tabs: tab1, tab2, tab3. i am reading in tab3 for 15mins. in that period, i didnt click on tab2/1. if now i click on tab2, it is blank and no longer displays the content of the page it is supposed to show. then, firefox quickly refreshes the page and displays the true page.

not really sure why this is happening now. never happened before. it is a really annoying behavior as every tab had to be refreshed automatically if i dont click on it in very few minutes. firefox 96.0 ubuntu 18.04. thanks

The Firefox Sidebar is a very nice feature that I use to provide favorite bookmarks to an non-computer-savvy elderly parent. Unfortunately many times the "X" in the upper right of the sidebar is accidentally clicked which results in a phone call or remote login session to recover. It would be helpful if there was an option to "lock" the sidebar so it cannot be closed by an unsavvy user. In addition, it would be valuable if the sidebar lock prevented the user from collapsing/expanding (changing) the bookmark lists in the sidebar. Once they are "locked" (by a computer proficient person), no changes are allowed to the sidebar by a careless user.

every once in a while firefox would just not load youtube and I have to switch to something like chrome to get on that site, and today after firefox updated i now just get the "Secure Connection Failed" error message and get told to contact the website owner like lol. and i understand there's an error and the connection is not secure, but like it's youtube... before it updated i cleared the cache and that fixed the problem of it not loading, but now it just goes straight to an error message. i tried troubleshooting a bit and nothing really changed, anyone have any way I can just bypass this?

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan

I recently deleted all cookies & site data & now whenever I search for something using Google I get the following message (below) where I also have to fill out a Captcha in order to proceed. This only happens with Firefox. On the same computer I have Microsoft Edge which has no problem with Google search. What's the problem with Firefox? Will give up this browser if this continues.

I know it gets posted a lot but none have actual working answers. I have autoplay to be blocked on all sites, I will never want any site to autoplay anything, I'd rather not be ever to ever start the video than for autoplay to happen.

I've checked the about:config against other posts say are the answer but it it's never solved this.

Upgraded to firefox 96 and the problem persists - haven't checked much yet but instagram.com is certainly playing every post.

I have enjoyed using Firefox for quite some time now, it is my favorite browser. However, recently, for a reason I cannot explain, I have been getting error messages on my school's online learning system that blocks me from watching any videos in the course. The error message reads as followed- "It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." ( For reference i guess, I go to IU which uses Canvas as an online learning platform. I haven't heard of anyone else having this issue)

I was very confused seeing this, because I hadn't recently changed or messed with any settings, I haven't downloaded any new security plug ins, but I went into my settings anyway to try and unblock all cookies using a custom settings option, under "Enhanced Tracking Protection" in settings. Reload my pages, restarted my browser, and no luck either time. I'm very confused as to why I'm seeing this error message, and it is getting in the way of my schoolwork at this point. I would LOVE to not have to download Chrome, so please help me thank you
