Was using my browser firefox, watching a yt vid and clicked to watch another vid and it stopped having network access. Confirmed firewall isn't blocking anything (even disabled it) and no proxy being used. Reinstalled 96.0 (was on like 95.X) no change --- update option in settings has no network access so I just downloaded it on another browser & installed (left the temp files alone) same issue.

This is a software issue with Firefox, not a computer issue. Nothing was updated or change on the computer either and it just stopped working while on youtube. Restarted PC, no change. Disabled a few exts like adblocker & no change.

PC is running macos 11.6, 96.0 firefox.

Thank you for any help.

Really need help. I work online and I have notifications and popups set to allow for firefox. The individual websites and added the sound notification but still do not hear or see a notification.

Does anyone know what to do? It is set up on Chrome as well and not working either. I work at Amazon online and need to get these notifications.

Firefox now requires a refresh to use every time it's opened. If I don't it keeps displaying that every page I attempt to go to has an expired https. It requests that I contact the owner to notify them of the problem and to try again. It does not connect to any webpage without a refresh. I've attempted troubleshooting mode and without a refresh, it still does not work. The refresh only lasts for about 10-15 minutes before another is required. All extensions are removed and even just attempting to go to google.com results in the same problem.

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, and it's unable to play videos on Amazon.com & Netflix.com. Neither did the one before 96.0. I first saw this on Netflix.com and when the tech started asking questions about my operating system, I knew they had pulled a fast one. Now Amazon.com has done the same thing with Firefox. This browser should be hiding the underlying operating system, because it's not necessary. I can use both websites with Chrome and have no issue. The same version of Firefox is on my laptop, but it has no problems because that thing is on Windows 10.

I won't bother with all the nonsense written about troubleshooting, because this is strictly the functionality of those websites peeking under the browser to check the O.S. Firefox needs to fix this hole immediately! You're messing with my money now. Monopolies shouldn't be able to control our hardware like this; they're not paying for any of it.

Oh, my TV is having a problem with the apps, so I was forced to watch videos with my computer instead. My laptop screen is too small and can't have my booming speakers connected to it. My desktop monitor is 34".

Firefox will now only up with a window about one-third the size of my monitor. I cannot find any way to change it back to filling the entire screen upon opening. I don't mean the full screen setting, just filling it top to bottom and side to side. If I hover over screen size icon, I get numerous options, but none allowing me to select wide screen.

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

My Firefox browser recently upgraded to 96.0.1 (64bit) and since then I have noticed that the background on when doing google searches and when watching Youtube is in dark theme. Altering to the light theme in Firefox settings has no effect and I have tried all the suggestions without success.

I did find that by removing the theme Unicorn Fantasy by M♥Donna and installing a light grey theme this forced google and youtube into there light theme. I have also tried installing other themes and these also seem to cause the dark mode.

I would assume it is a problem caused by the latest Firefox update as google and youtube had the normal white background before this. It's not a massive problem, just annoying and makes little difficult to use


Anyone know how to get round this ?

I just signed up for Firefox Monitor. Most of the accounts it says were breached are ones I recognize, and I have changed my passwords. However, it also says there were data breaches affecting two sites I do not have an account with at all (Whitepages and Verifications.io). What do I do about those, since I haven't got an account (I don't even know what Verifications.io is), so I don't have a password to change.

Hello, Each time I try to download the new version of Firefox (70.0.1) it is redirecting to download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net however the link displayed from the right click of the mouse is https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=osx&lang=en-US

I am also trying to find out the file size of the dmg (mine says 72.5Mb) and the Firefox app which seems to be very bloaty in excess of 203.9 Mb

When I drag the Firefox folder to the Applications folder.

However I have gatekeeper set to Allow Apps downloaded from the App Store. YET Firefox opens without having to go into gatekeeper and make changes.

eg. "Open anyway" or "App Store and Identified developers"

Can someone confirm the following i) Current version of Firefox for Max OS X ii) The current size of the dmg iii) The size of the app iv) whether download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net is a a valid Mozilla.org affiliated website
