If I open Google Maps in Firefox, it shows I'm in Lubbock, Texas. I am not. I'm in Arizona. Google Maps on Chrome gets it right. Bing maps gets it wrong in Firefox but right in Chrome too. Same with Google Earth in the browser. My IP location is correct and shows I'm in AZ. It's seems to be a Firefox issue. I've turned location off and back on. Cleared cookies. I'm at a loss.

Using Firefox and accessing my gmail account. A notice comes up saying "A pop up blocker may be preventing the application from printing the page. If you have a popup blocker, try disabling it to open the window". I have no idea how to find what this pop up blocker is so I can disable it.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

I've been using Windows Quicken and Firefox for many years and have one ongoing annoyance... When I download a .qfx file of transactions from some financial institution, a window pops up asking what should Firefox do with this file.. (Firefox is my default browser)... There is a choice to open the file with Windows Quicken and I select that and things work fine. However, there is also an optional check box that supposedly gives you the choice to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". I check that box but it never seems to work... I am always asked the question about what should Firefox use to open a qfx file. What can I do to get FIrefox to use Windows Quicken to automatically open the file?

Australian Gov HTTPS (BOM) access problems - Weather/radar Site - Bureau of Meteorology (Australia) – not working under HTTPS and Firefox.

31-August 2021 . Hi all, recently the Australian government , “Bureau of Meteorology” weather and radar – website has stopped working under HTTPS and FireFox – it does work under Microsoft Edge though (Yuk). . Unfortunately even if under the FireFox internal settings - you disable the need for a HTTPS connection – the website still kicks you out anyway – and any direct call to the site (http://www.bom.gov.au) – will just kick you to an endless loop of no achievement – by basically constantly telling you “you cannot use HTTPS” and the HTTP link provided just loops you back to the same place. . For now – the only solution I have found is to leave “HTTPS” on – and create an exception for every single page (very zzzzz). . So for me , I am only excepting and viewing the local weather radar page and getting all other info from other sources. . Machine specs - Win10 Pro , Firefox Version 91.0.2 (64-bit) . I have also (via Edge) – reported this to the “BOM” in Australia, . I hope this helps someone , as I cannot be the only person in Australia trying to access this site – but having to sign up - to report the problem here, I did find more than a bit off putting.

After the most recent update, currently on 92.0, the Minimize, Maximize, and Close buttons are invisible. They are still there and I can get the tool-tip if I hover over them with the mouse, but visually they are completely gone.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

I keep banging my head up against being excluded from using sites like Channel4 (UK) because there is no way to have java work!! Must I migrate all my browser traffic to edge? You seem intent on excluding anyone who doesn't code from your products nowadays.

My default browser is DuckDuckgo via an addon in Firefox. When I want more information about a subject in which I have been reading about and use copy function ,e.g. LIMESCALE INHIBITOR and then put it in a search bar it is just showing INHIBITOR i.e.misses off the first word of anything I copy. When I go direct via DuckDuckgo it works perfectly. It used to work OK on DuckDuckgo via Firefox but now it doesn't

Since the recent Firefox updates my YouTube is messed up. This issue started a few months ago. The thumbnail pictures on the right side of the video screen do not match the titles. The pictures and titles have nothing to do with each other. The "comments" section on a video are not available unless I take my cursor and strategically find the little sweet spot to allow me to start typing.Also my name appears on other viewers comments and others on my comments. If I go to "task manager, right click on "Task Manager" and click "restart" the problem goes away for one viewing then returns. If I open and sign in to Youtube in Chrome everything works fine, so I know it's not a YouTube settings issue. Please help, it's driving me crazy!!

All PCs are Windows 10 (64) Home or Pro

After FireFox updated to ver 93.0 (64 bit) the CenturyLink Webmail page fails to load properly (all I get is a blank screen). I know this is because of version 93.0 because the last PC I checked it on (My Windows 10 (64) laptop) still had FireFox 92.0.xx loaded and the webpage loaded fine, then the browser updated and the webmail page failed to load properly. The CenturyLink Webmail Page loads fine on Google Chrome and on Microsoft Edge.

Troubleshooting: In addition to the usual clearing browser data I even tried resetting FireFox on one of my PCs. It didn't help.

Centurylink tech support says there is nothing wrong with their Webmail and to use another browser.

I've attached a screen capture of what I see.
