I use Firefox as my defauly browser. However, today (12/04/21) in the UK, when I search on Google, the results populate on Yahoo! It's very bizarre. The same happens after highlighting, right-clicking and selecting 'search on Google'. The results are populated on Yahoo. Chrome is fine, Google works as normal. It's only Firefox. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

I am working in an online class and we are asked to record videos in an online platform for school. When I go to hit the play button on anyone's video I get an error message. This does not happen in other browsers, but I want to keep using Firefox. Is there a privacy or cookie setting that could be causing this to happen?

So I just want to understand is there is anything new since this post or do I have to apply a more efficient solution that removing user.js I don't want to take the risk of spoiling up my setup.

Constantly, however quite sporadically, links or buttons within websites just stop working and go dead: but only when using Mozilla on my windows computer. For instance, I was just on a website for grohe bathroom fixtures. I chose to load 100 products per page. I got to the bottom of the page and want to click on the second of two page possibilities, and nothing happens when I click. This happens all the time, for months and months now! Why are internal links or buttons going dead on various sites, for no reason, no timing I can put my finger on or anything else. The only fix is to reload the page, and when that doesn't work i resort to loading the page on chrome.

Clicking "Show more comments" on Facebook does nothing (I browse it without an account), also no comments are shown in Cracked.com, I haven't noticed if other sites don't show comments. I use Ubuntu 20.04 (when I first opened FF on this pc it had the gnome icon and I hadn't checked for this problem before importing my old profile with add-ons, now it doesn't show the icon for some reason), I tried safe mode, refresh firefox, creating new profile, uninstalling and deleting home/.mozilla folder, no luck. Before I got this pc I used my old laptop with windows 7 and I'm pretty sure I had the same problem with facebook comments that had started some time earlier.

Hello,

i'm having a problem navigating inside some of the websites on Firefox for Mac. Either the page is grey, and I can't navigate the page or I can't scroll down the page. It's not doing it on evry websites but it's become really annoying.

I tried to go into Preferences and in the privacy to see if there was somthing there, but the privacy setting is set to standard and I don't see anything there that can prevent what's happening.

Thank you for your help in this matter. Kssaw

FireFox is schizophrenic! How do I stop it from switching languages on my PC?

I have just had my PC updated to Win 10 at a neighborhood PC shop here in Germany. But now I can't get all the screens to speak in English. I have placed a check-marke on several Menus that ask for a language preference. But it doesn't seem to help. What I have been getting when Mozilla opens up with a split screen is, one screen is in English and the other is in German. I suspect the cause for this is because my e-mail address has a '.de' at the very end, which is Germany. So It looks to me like there is a s/w problem at your end. The s/w keeps looking at my address, instead of the screens where I have asked it to write to me in the English language. Is there a fix for this problem yet? Or must I wait some more before it get's fixed.

The absolute weirdest problem. If I'm on the Brita website (brita.com) and type in another url to navigate away, I press enter, and it just refreshes the same page I was on. This happens across the brita.com domain, regardless of what url I type in, even if I type the full url (including https://www.), and if I click a search or url suggestion in the dropdown, even in a private window, anything. This has never happened to me with any other website.

Obviously I can just close the tab and open another, but this is strange enough I figured I'd see if anyone could figure it out (or at least replicate my experience). I would appreciate any insights!
