Since my firefox browser updated yesterday with the July 19, 2021 update, some web pages are not displaying properly. For example, I use Yahoo mail, and when I click on an email, most of the content is not showing, including the sender's message. Other frequently used websites are similarly affected.

This same problem occurred after another recent firefox update, and it was eventually fixed when I "checked for updates".

I'm hoping this bug is widespread enough that the Mozilla team will be providing a further update that fixes this.

Meanwhile, if anyone has an idea, I'll listen!

I am sat in front of a PC for most of my day. Firefox spends most of its time minimised while I use document and video applications. On average the Primary password login box will activate over everything I am doing frequently - by frequently I mean 2-3 times an hour or more. It is annoying and nonsensical. What am I doing wrong or is this simply a flaw in firefox? In my imagination at least it makes sense for it to ask me for a password when I want to use a password restricted domain.

Hello Unfortunately, the Pinterest browser button in Firefox does not work since a few days, - instead the Pinterest message window appears in the upper right corner of the screen saying „you are not logged in", plus a red login button (see screenshot added) On the Pinterest page, however, I then see every time that I am very well logged in. Tried several things, but no lasting success: - clicking on the red login link provided by the browser button message. Then a login window appears, but before I can enter name and password, it disappears again and I end up (already logged in) on my Pinterest home feed page. I still can't get the pin saved, though. This can't be because I'm logged in at Google at the same time (- I also logged out of Google and tried again, same result). - I logged out on the Pinterest page and then tried again via the window popping up in Firefox when I click the Pinterest-browser-button. Doesn't make any difference. - restarted Firefox, - doesn't help either. - logged out on Pinterest, deleted the Pinterest addon in Firefox and reinstalled it. Then logged in on Pinterest via the button window that popped up again in Firefox (saying "You are not logged in") when I try to pin something. That looked like it works and the pin got saved. However, the next time Firefox is opened or the next try touse the button, it's back to "You are not logged in" again (- and all the rest described above). Looks for me like coming with the last Firefox update two days before.... So what to do now? please fix that, it's very frustrating! best, Gundula from Germany

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

Since last weekend or thereabouts (17 July 2021) my Firefox on the 3 devices/platforms I use (see title) is not connecting to a specific website. Edge connects and is usable.

There is no error message, the screen in the tab remains blank and the activity indicator stops after a few seconds.

The website address is https://colony.litopia.com . The website is functioning and I have just used it, loaded images etc using Edge - I am a writer and use it every day, usually LOL.

All the other sites I use are ok, as is the main domain https://litopia.com . The hyperlink from the parent to the subdomain also hangs in the same way. I have spokent to other users of the site and they say it is ok, although it is noted as usually being a very slow site.

I have tried connection via cellphone router and wired broadband from different physical locations. Firefox troubleshooting not reporting any errors.

I use adblock on Win10 and Linux and have tried disabling that. FB container only on win 10. All platforms are up to date with Firefox. 90.0.2. I believe the issue arose when I went to 90.0

I haven't shared my data because the devices are disparate.

Comments appreciated, thanks.

Version 90.02 D.O.H. unwanted change

I installed FF on my Mac from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ firefox/releases/90.0/mac/en-US/ sha256 dbc08038e2a26017d360bbf366a935084ed0e0914dc50f3e7e419e5b765c8863. I then performed an update to 90.2 directly via the update notification instead of the direct download and found that D.O.H value changed from cloudflare default to an unknown cira canadian shield.

Why would the default setting change to a unknown Canadian D.O.H. provider when I have a US version of FF installed on a upgrade? See enclosed.

Hello there,

since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

With best regards.

1. Sometimes the program stops responding; sometimes it restarts on its own but sometimes I have to close it.

2. Sometimes when I switch from Firefox to another open program Firefox closes on its own.

Managing profiles: My Firefox since rel 89.0 crashes several times A DAY. The last time it crashed 6 times in a row then WIPED out my copy and gave me a new copy, BLANK of everything. I am no rookie to Firefox as my first version was 1.0 when I converted from Netscape Navigator long ago. The rub is PROFILES. I have too many to manage now and need to get rid of some but Moz:lla in their infinite wisdom does not put a date, what was the LAST one.... and one has to search to find the LAST profile that has your latest modification, data, etc. I am fearsome in deleting any as they do not seem to be in any order and I get a SERVE warning when trying to delete. Since the new releases crashes all the time, to do critical work I have to resort to UGH, "EDGE' until Moz://a gets a solid release and hopefully STOP TRYING TO COPY EDGE AND CHROME.

Any advise will be appreciated. [except advise to use EDGE or CHROME].

Hello all, I regularly open up pop up windows to do my job, containing lots of column data. Until recently, the columns would squeeze down as small as they could - depending on data field and font size - meaning the bottom scroll bar was unnecessary. However, in last 1-2 weeks(?) the data columns seem happy to spread themselves out menaing I always have to scroll right to see the last few columns. Is there anything like a 'make the columns fit if they're capable of doing' command/shortcut? Thanks all.

On one computer I have deleted everything from Firefox including the folders within Apps Roaming except for one folder. There in one folder "41A66E7EE5E1" within Profiles which I cannot delete. It holds the files prefs.js and sessionCheckpoints.json which were created at 20/02/2021 and I cannot delete those.

My new installation is dated 24/07/2021.

There is nothing in the properties of those two files to suggest an issue. I do find however that when I seek to change the Property/Security to Administrator (I should be able to do that) I receive a dialog box that "the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

Please advise on how I address this.

Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.
