Is there a setting hidden somewhere where I can force my preferred date format? Why do I have to contend with the dreadful date format when when visiting mozilla.org in english?

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

Hi I've updated to version 93.0 on a Windows 8 laptop. I try to support a website for a camera club that I'm a member of. The problem I'm having is that when I go to the website http://cranburydigitalcameraclub.org/ and try to click on any of the dropdown menus, nothing happens. e.g. Hover over Calendar and they click on Main calendar. I've tried this with Chrome and it works there. Another member has spotted the same behavior.

I'll guess that it is java related. Did something change recently? I know java hasn't been supported but this has worked for several years now.

thanks in advance Will

I've been facing this problem for quite some time. I am unable to access any websites which are protected by Cloudfare DDoS protection. I tried everything - cleaning cookies, reducing security level, etc. Earlier i could easily access those websites but now i cant. I tried to access it through chrome and it worked. However i really dont like chrome and prefer firefox than chrome.

accessing bom.gov.au returns "website does not currently support connections via HTTPS." the site then redirects to itself. I first thought that it was a site specific problem but when I tried with Internet explorer I had no problems. I also can access the site successfully with my mobile phone where I also use Firefox. Is there a setting I have overlooked?

The title says it all. When I was running Win10, things were fine. I then did a clean install of Win11, and loaded Firefox. zero changing of settings. I do a simple test by going to an entry on Wikipedia, and I noticed all the uses of italic font were very small. This didn't happen a half hour earlier with Win10. Enclosed as an image is a sample screenshot.

Hi, This PC I am working on now is always seen as a Win 8 machine when I am using Firefox. The machine is a Win 10 unit. All my other units are read as the correct operating system, and as this is the only one that runs Firefox, I believe I should discuss it with you. The problem only is acute when using this to access secure sites or to buy online. The machine is seen as suspect at all times. Also I struggle with Windows Updates deleting and damaging the operations at every tiny "update." I never use Edge. When they make me helpless, I switch to a Mac. Other than placing updates on delay, which works now and then, is there any other way to cut off microsoft? Gregory Burke ...

If you don't touch the autoplay permissions for a site, Firefox seems to be attempting to use some heuristics to decide whether autoplay, such as calling ".play()" on an Audio object in javascript, should be allowed. What are these heuristics, and where are they authoritatively documented? [https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/d.../Autoplay_guide#autoplay_availability|MDN] has some information but nothing Firefox-specific.

Only on firefox browser, I am unable to post messages in groups or messenger in facebook. I can add text, files and anything else, but when I try to post or hit send button, it just shoots back to the begining. If I use any other browser, which I do not want to do, it works fine. If I hit the enter button on the keyboard it will just scroll down. As soon as I type the first character it scrolls down as well, and off screen and I have to scroll the page up to see it again. Do not think it is a keyboard issue as it works on other browsers and on this help page This just started happening since my last update. Maybe you can tell me how to go back to prior version? or how to fix. Does not seem to be an issue anywhere but facebook in the firefox browser. Thanks. Duane Schlosser

When typing myit.usj.edu on Google Chrome or Edge, it resolves and opens the website.

However, it does not open on Mozilla Firefox. It takes a long while and then the error appears "The connection was reset
