I am just wondering why FireFox occasionally becomes slow to load web pages. On these occasions, restarting Firefox fixes the problem immediately.

Example, I was just loading the same page repeatedly because of some work I am doing. After about 15 minutes of slow response times, I restarted FireFox and immediately, the page loaded very quickly as usual.

You can see the page where this was occurring at this url: https://legacy-systems.biz/demo/demo.html

Any information etc. would be appreciated immensely.

My wife and I are both suddenly blocked from opening a fav website: https://www.freedomconsciousness.com/

We now get a 403 Forbidden webpage (generated by Wordfence) instead.

Ditto when using the utube webpage, then in the About tab, trying to reach the website that way.

Trying the Mozilla technique of clicking on the lock icon ... I get both a secure connection message and a not-secure-connected message. Nothing I try after that affects anything. What to do???

Today, I noticed the Ghostery icon usually in the upper right of the Firefox browser is missing. I would like to know how to restore it. clicking on the icon enables me to manage trusting or not trusting sites. This is an important option to have for visiting some sites. I don't know what happened.

Thank you,

How to ensure that hyperlinks in pinned tabs open in new tabs?

I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1.

Until recently, when I would click on a hyperlink within a pinned tab, it would open in a new tab. (To be sure, this is *without* pressing the Control key on the Mac, or without right clicking on the mouse --> open link in new tab option).

But now, hyperlinks inside pinned tabs open in the same window. This is a workflow nightmare because I am used to having links originating within my pinned Gmail window open in a new tab.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295, but this does not help.

I cannot get Firefox to go completely into full screen on Mac OS Catalina. When going full screen it will hide the Mac system menu bar at the top, but it will not hide the Firefox address bar. I've researched a bit and found some suggestions about settings in about:config pertaining to full screen access, and I've exhausted all of those suggestions. Is this a known issue on Mac with Firefox?

Hi everyone,

I updated to macOS Big Sur yesterday and now I got display issue on websites that use the Roboto font (like Youtube, Trello, Google Translate, etc.)

As you can see on the attached screenshot, the font is now always displayed BOLD and in a weird way.

I reinstalled the Roboto font on my mac but it did nothing. Everything is working fine with other web-browsers.

Can someone help me ?

Thanks by advance.

Best regards. Adrian

My Firefox for MAC 78.4.0esr (64-bit) Browser Window shakes horizontally, uncontrollably, when I click on links in websites. This began just before the last update, and happens more frequently than not, forcing me to abandon the application because I can't close the shaking window. I can't see a specific pattern to which links will cause this to happen, but if I restart Firefox and try the same link, it will repeat the error. My device is a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009), OSX El Capitan V 10.11.6, 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB. This error does not occur in Safari. Firefox is my preferred browser.
