Tabs in the tab bar randomly, suddenly can't be interacted with by mouse/trackpad pointer, sometimes even just the one and only tab in a window won't close when clicking on the "X." The keyboard commands to cycle between tabs and close tabs still work, but this is frustrating nevertheless. I've tried disabling all the add-ons I added in the month or two before the problem started. I refreshed Firefox, but once I added my add-ons back in, the problem persisted.

What else can I try to fix this? Any input would be appreciated.

This past week I started getting the Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue warning when I tried to access my email at Comcast.net. I also got the warning on my banks website when I tried to transfer funds, something I had done many times before. This seems to have started after "upgrading" to version 78.7.1 of FireFox. However, I got the same sort of error using Safari: "Safari can't verify the identity of the website xfinityconnect.email.comcast.net" The certificate shows it is issued by "AVG untrusted CA" from the country "CZ" and State/Province "Brno". Comcast told me to just trust their certificate and I was able to get to my email account, but I am getting the same warning from PNC Bank's website when I try to transfer funds. This REALLY has me worried. Can someone tell me if this is a sign I've been hacked? How can I fix this so I can again transfer funds from my checking account to other banks?

Please Help! Why am I all of a sudden getting this error message? I have been using Firefox for years and Gmail.

Do you really want to use HTML Gmail?

You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers. To get all of Gmail's features, including inbox categories, images and quick actions, please use the latest version of Gmail (recommended).

Take me to latest Gmail

Despite having correctly set the choice parameters for opening the "search" page with a certain engine (eg Google), occasionally when a new search window is opened it opens with the YAHOO engine, despite having eliminated this possibility in the Firefox settings.

Mac OS 10.10.2 Firefox 78.9

Problem: When I go back from full screen mode, the half top of tabs(more like the 2/3 part to the tab) becomes not clickable. Only way to solve it is just to restart the browser.

There is another thing that could provide a bit more info. No matter whether I've ever made it full screen or not, the 2/3 top area of the tabs will never turn grey when I put my mouse on it.

No add-ons and themes installed. Tried safe mode and it didn't works.

The same bug exists on the other Mac, which runs an older version of firefox.

Hello! I work on a Mac and have constant problems with buffering and screen freezing. I have refreshed the browser twice as suggested.

Each time I log on or move to another page that colorful basketball appears for quite awhile. When I can finally move to the desired page, it freezes and that basketball appears again.

Help? I work from home and need to use this computer.

Thank you!

Does FF have any role in logging me out of a website due to some time limit? I complained to a site that I lost a lot of typing because it had silently logged me out. I was told by one of their CS people "The issue is actually with your browser. Browsers have a security feature that automatically logs you out of secure areas if you are not moving around, which unfortunately excludes typing. The idea is if you were logged into your online bank account and left your computer, someone else could not sit down 5 minutes later and start doing things in your account. This feature is for any secured area, any area you have to login to access. It is not something we do or can prevent. I am very sorry for the inconvenience."

IMHO this is BS, but please tell me if FF could have terminated my session somehow. Thanks. GD

I have had Metamask installed for a long time but recently it has vanished from my browser and despite enabling it many times, deleting and reinstalling and turning it on, it still is not showing up in Firefox. I tried connecting Uniswap to it and it sends me to the download metamask page even though I have already downloaded and installed. What is going on?

Macbook Pro 15-inch, Late 2008 Firefox 78.14.0esr (64-bit) mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

Problem is manifesting when I try and use Wordpress websites. Some fail to load or take some time. When editing in the backend - same issues, and when using Elegant Themes DIVI Theme on page editing does not work. Cannot open settings for modules, hovers over editable areas not behaving.

Looked at Console and it is showing this error repeatedly. Also showing many other errors too with Chrome and various OS functions.

9/15/21 11:56:25.614 AM firefox[1063]: stat on /Users/admin/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/eq2ony84.default-1556047105747/weave/commands.json: No such file or directory

First, what is the error and can it be fixed.

Second, would it be having any effect on the issues described.

Struggling to get my work done. Thanks for your insights.
