Hi,

       I currently run Firefox 94.0.1, I am running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit - Ver 21H1  - OS BUILD 19043.1266

I have 16 GB Ram. Storage is Samsung SSD 465GB & 3 x 1TB hard drives. I use the Microsoft Virus and Firewall apps. I also run Mozilla VPN.

Recently on two separate occasions and via two different methods, email links to two separate Microsoft Forms. Both appear using the link in the emails and look normal?, what ever that may be. after selecting or filling out the forms, you get to the end of the first page and hit the 'NEXT' button. And nothing happens.

I have tried turning off Mozilla VPN, still nothing happens. One form is a Medical survey for my wife's Aerobic class Clients, and was not built by my wife. The other form is from the BACPR (British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation)

I am at a loss as to why these forms fail to work

Any help would gratefully received.

I used to be able to visit the Bureau of Meteorology Australian weather radar sites but now I get a message "You will shortly be re-directed to http://www.bom.gov.au". Nothing happens. I've found that another browser allows me to visit those radar sites suggesting those radar sites exist and that there may be a problem in the Firefox system. Seems this may be a known problem.

Ever since the last two updates, whenever I am on Instagram (i have Win 10 PC version) and I click on a photo to see a larger version, I get this message:

                                         Sorry, this page isn't available.

The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed. Go back to Instagram.

It does not occur on the Instagram stories.

It only happens on Firefox not on Chrome. Chrome works fine.

Why am I suddenly experiencing a drop in volume on YouTube videos accessed via Firefox? It's not a problem when I access them via Safari, so it's not the fault of my sound system.

Have there been any recent changes to Firefox that would affect the sound levels on YouTube videos? (I'm up to date with Firefox, using 94.01.) I use MacOs Catalina, version 10.15.7, on a MacMini 2014 model.

I'm playing YouTube videos that I've played before many times, but now I have to turn my volume up full tilt, where I used to keep it at 'medium.' This situation has NOT happened in Safari, which still gives me full volume on these YouTube videos, so it's not the fault of my sound system. There must be a glitch, perhaps with the latest Firefox update? This has only been happening since I updated a few days ago.

Thank you for any help with this! I prefer Firefox as a browser, and don't want to shift away from it.

Cheers, Jan

Is there even a single website left on this planet left that does not have a deal with google or facebook? I mean im here at firefox support to push my privacy and while i do that im being tracked by google. Ironic right?! What even is the reason "mozilla org - non profit organisation" allowed google to install their trackers here, money? Source: https://pagexray.fouanalytics.com/q/support.mozilla.org

support.mozilla.org static-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net stats.g.doubleclick.net www.google-analytics.com www.googletagmanager.com location.services.mozilla.com

The last four urls appear to be trackers..

Dont get me wrong. Mozilla Firefox is great browser but some things dont seem well. What is the logic using a "privacy browser" that comes with google as search engine? That is privacy one the left hand and tracking on the right hand. Ofcourse it's very easy to change the search engine and you mozilla does this because of money, i get it... but still you get my point? Basically... google is tracking when, where, and whoever they can to collect, analyse and sell data of individual human beings. And basically... Mozilla takes that bloody money from google to create a privacy seach engine, ironic right?! Anyone got any toughts on this?

And honestly, while i have been using Firefox for years, i feel that firefox has changed alot and i am not sure if i can trust mozilla anymore. There are multiple reasons for that. 1 - The partnership with google (ok i get it, its the money) 2 - Telemetry active by default... 3 - Pushing pocket and sync... 4 - New cringe modern style that looks similar to bigtech like google or instagram. I man look at the firefox logo, what the hell happened? This doesn't even look like firefox anymore... Honestly! Look at it! The old Fox was amazing, now it just looks like garbage, and after all this is not just my opinion but it is the very truth.

Take a look at this: https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/org.mozilla.firefox/latest/

                               https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/com.brave.browser/latest/

This i firefox VS brave in terms of privacy. brave appears to have zero trackers while firefox has 3... Those are only the mobile app/apk versions, i dont know if that also goes for the desktop installer, do you? If firefox desktop also has those trackers i would like to know how to block them.

Hi All, thanks for any help;

My issue is, I transfer a lot of long Word-97 generated text to various web-forums, which contain simple formatting (bold, italics, paragraph spacing, varied 'forum supported' fonts). When the text is copied, all the formatting is stripped in Firefox and only pasted as plain text.

Is there a way to copy and paste a document's text so the formatting is not removed?

p.s.: this is a browser issue, older browsers--like IE-11--copy the information fine (they have some paragraph vs. line issues (now, which is likely forum side), but otherwise work fine.)

Is there a way to paste text with formatting in firefox?

Thanks for your help!

Hello.

I have my Home settings configured for:

Home Page and New Windows: Blank Page New Tabs: Blank Page.

When I launch Firefox in normal mode (non-Private), I get a blank page. Exactly what I configured it for.

When I launch a Private Window, I get a NON-blank page. Rather I get a promotional page for the Mozilla VPN with the banner "Get privacy protections everywhere you browse". This is not a blank page, it is a promotional page for a service I don't care to use. If I press the HOME button I get the blank page but private windows don't start that way.

Is there a way to configure Private Windows to open a blank page as I have it set for?

I checked 'about:config', search for "vpn" and "private" and disable 'promo' settings, reset the promo VPN links to "about:blank", hide the 'vpn banner' and so on but nothing gets rid of it.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

fb purity has been updated for Chrome and Edge and IE. the developer is waiting for Firefox to do the update. I use it and like it but it does not do all the things it does on other browsers because it is not updated. I think the developer of fb purity is waiting for firebox to update or give him the code or whatever you have to do to make it work. I like the extension but like i said It does not do what it does and when it removes on the other browsers .I like and have used Firefox for years and do not want to use any other browser So I am asking please allow this extension to update on Firefox.

Suddenly I can't log into some sites on Firefox. I'm 94.0.1. I'm on a Mac > Catalina. See images of error messages. I could not even get to this page on Firefox (I'm on Safari right now); Firefox said I needed to enable cookies and local storage. But cookies ARE enabled (I'm not sure how to enable local storage, or what that means). I created a test user, and downloaded Firefox and everything worked, but when I go back to my real user, I still have these problems.

Hello,

I set Swiss cows as my default search engine in Firefox ios browser. And for some reason I always get an error message “404 page not found” at Swiss cows when I do a quick search from Firefox. If I want to search now, I have to go to Swisscows first, then type in my search. I can’t do it from a Firefox tab. It wasn’t always doing this. Any tips on how to fix this? Thank you
