I was using Firefox and my system was low on resources so it killed the process using the most memory which was Firefox. When it restarted every page showed up as garbage. I've cleared cache. I've refreshed Firefox. I've reinstalled. I've rebooted. Nothing seems to work. mozilla.org appears to work but every other site I try looks like the attached image. When I view the source of a page that looks like garbage, the source looks perfectly fine. I'm running 77.0.1 64 bit on Windows 7. Any ideas?

Firefox 73.0.1

It is being used on a home desktop running Win 7 Home Premium.

In 'Tools->Options->General,' a blue link states 'Your Browser Is Being Managed By Your Organization.'

When I click on the link, a new tab opens with 'Enterprise Policies' stating:

'Policy Name': 'Certificates'

'Policy Value ': ImportEnterpriseRoots'

'Value': 'True'

Are they the settings that I want or am I missing something?

'Hi, is this a known issue? Ebay will not render inside my Firefow browser.

Still looks like some parts of the page don't load, tried all the individual line items in 'page info' without success.

Seems to forget that the security was overwritten.

Allowed the 73.0.1 update to proceed today and it (73.0.1) broke a banking website (www.citibank.com.au) that was fine under FF72 (and earlier). Makes no difference whether I use a bookmarked URL or re-type it. Now unable to do my banking on the desktop with FF. Mobile banking app works fine.

The normal home page has a different appearance (since this morning's session under FF72). As soon as I hit login, it loads something off their MOBILE site and then locks me on a T&C page with no escape.

Works fine under IE (shudder) and Opera. Have done the usual: clear cache/cookies, restart FF, Seriously considering reverting to release 72 unless this rings a bell with anyone here.

So yeah, I don't know why but since yesterday it has been acting strange. I haven't tinkered with anything if my memory serves right. Whenever I try to open a website or the Preferences page or anything -- it is blank! I can't open new tabs too. I tried various solutions like no Hardware Acceleration, refreshing and even re-installation. However, what is weird is, I can use Firefox alright with Window's Safe Mode (not Firefox's, Window's).

I tried clearing AppData and some other stuff and am getting no response. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Using FF52 because I don't want to lose SPECIFIC functionality I still have with that version. That functionality trumps all other considerations. Period.

In 52, I can open my bookmarks in a separate window ... that way it doesn't conflict with browser real estate AT ALL. Its behind browser window or on top as needed with a 'focus' click.

BUT ..... even if that is possible with Quantum ...

In that window, I want ALL bookmarks ... not just their folders ... to be visible, if needed. More specifically ....

...  I want to be able to open ANY two or more folders at one time (and keep them open) ... which is how I normally have this.        All in One Sidebar enabled this in FF52.       I do not want last folder closed when I open new one.     And I don't want to view bookmarks in a right hand side half of window.     (This is how FF was before 4.0, how it was enabled with AIOS by FF 29, etc.)

Please tell me if this combination of functionality is possible in current versions. Thank You.

Once again, we have a new release (74.0). Once again, the developers who believe themselves to be gods do not think users should be allowed to set Firefox to allow Flash on specific sites without asking EVERY SESSION, somehow believing that inconveniencing the users is somehow going to force website admins to move away from Flash before the announced deprecation at the END of the year.

Now one of my daily-visited sites (the one for Daily Jumble) will not wait for me to enable Flash, and when I do enable it I then have to refresh the page to make it work. It is obvious that if what I have been asking for all along -- being able to tell Firefox to enable Flash always FOR THIS SITE ONLY -- would alleviate the problem, but since the gods cannot see through the eyes of the users, I am now further inconvenienced by their decision.

I maintain that they moved too quickly and too drastically to implement this change, and I have no reason to believe posting this will make any difference, but I again want them to know that instead of Firefox being the most user-friendly browser in the world (as it USED to be) it now has enough user-UNfriendliness to be as despised as Internet Explorer was.

I do not believe it to be an unreasonable request to allow this, because they could simply put that functionality in, then take it out along with all Flash support in the first release of 2021. But they think they know better. Sorry, guys, but you DO NOT.

I have the Norton Password Manager (PWM) extension installed. When I want to log in to any protected site for which I have already stored the login info, I have to log in to my Norton account before I can log in to the PWM itself.* The box for that has a checkbox "Remember me on this device," which I leave checked, but if I close Firefox and open it again, the box pops up exactly as before, whereas on Chrome, the login info is entered already. I have tried restoring Firefox to its default configuration and entering the Norton login info on both the logins page and on the cookie exceptions page, but nothing works. What's up?

  • This seems to be a relatively new requirement by Norton, which I already explored in another thread.

Embedded maps not loading for certain websites

I've recently come across two websites that use embedded maps, where the maps are not loading at all. (but maps.google.com is working just fine)

There are two embedded maps on here that don't load:
   https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html
And the main map on here won't load, and its my first time using this site:
   https://www.zumper.com/apartments-for-rent/new-york-ny

Here's what I've tried in solving this issue:

 - Turned off the Enhanced Tracking Protection for each of these sites
 - Disabled all of my extensions and restarted FF
 - Started FF in Safe Mode
But none of these fixed the issue. The only thing that works so far is to use a brand new FF profile, and then the embedded maps will load on these sites.
So, why doesn't Safe Mode work? What is it about my main profile that is causing the maps not to load?
Btw, I'd prefer not to rebuild my profile from scratch, as it would take lots and lots of time to get everything set back up again in the new profile.
Thanks, Darren

Out of the blue I received a message stating I was being attacked on my Mac by software that maybe Ransomware. I was asked to close and delete the files.

I run Mac Os 10.14.6 and have never had any previous problems. After quarantining these files I quit Firefox and then could not open it. I therefore deleted the .app and reinstalled Firefox 75. I can only start up Firefox by using the Terminal Command window using the Profile manager. I created a new profile but cannot see my old profile within the Profile Manager. I can find the old profile under Profile's in Application Support/Users. So despite having a new default set created, I still cannot get the Firefox.app to open by clicking on it. I have now deleted the old profile and still cannot open the Firefox app from the dock or applications folder.

help please!

I could never find out why I got the message "Ransomware may be trying to access my computer", except two files have appeared in my bin; Edgar Poe Murder and Righteous Games.

Any help appreciated.
