Using current Firefox (84.0.2) on an iMac desk computer. Since Apple put out their recent upgrade to OS Big Sur (2019 ~Nov?), Firefox keeps dropping its internet connection. Works for a session, but when I come back a few hours later I see "Unable to connect..." Restarting always gets it back to start another session. But rebooting several times every day gets old. When Firefox is on the blink, Safari browser works fine, no problem. Connection is there. But my fullest set of bookmarks is in Firefox, so I'd rather use Firefox. Even more strange: Safari and Firefox both continue to work on my wife's desktop same iMac, no problem, just not Firefox on mine. Found help article "Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can), went through every step to troubleshoot. No go, still drops. Contacted Apple support and they were flummoxed. Any ideas?

Hi I recently switched to Firefox on my iMac and when I tried going to the Apple website to report issue with an App Store purchase, idmsa.apple.com, it just spins and spins. Works fine on Firefox on my iPhone. I've disabled add-ons and cleared history and set all security settings to allow everything, but the site won't load. Any suggestions what to do to get it working? thanks!

p.s. just tried with appleid.apple.com and it also spins and spins and doesn't let me login.

Hello

There is a website that won't go off my URL bar suggestion. I have tried everything I came across searching about this problem : - choosing the entry with the arrows and clicking on the DELETE button (holding SHIFT or not) - removing the website from my history - clicking on "forget this website" in the history - some other things I don't exactly remember

None of this has worked... The website isn't even bookmarked ! When I type "rs" on the search bar, I want rs-online.com and not rs-particuliers.com to appear. You can see the problem is this video : https://youtu.be/Vq5dUpkf534

This is driving me crazy... I use this website (rs-online) every day, and I never use the other one... I want it to get OFF my computer... Sorry if this isn't the right place !! Ask me anything you need to know !

Have a great day

Starter showed me that an Update to the flash player was going to be installed with RunOnce at my next reboot. This coincided with an automatic Firefox update. I have just uninstalled Flash player successfully from this Windows 10 machine. Google suggests that this version of the Flashplayer is that one used in Firefox?

1) I thought Flash was going away and I fully understand why. Is Mozilla still supporting or pushing it?

2) There are references on the web concerning an "Adobe Flash Player 32 NPAPI" virus !!

I was able to delete the referenced file associated with the player update as well, but there are many other references to flash still in my registry. I have enough experience to help myself here, but I really would like to know Mozilla's official position on the above Q.

Thanks in Advance, Lyle Allen, Durham NC LyleMAllenIII@gmail.com

Hello. I am the user of Firefox browser. My main browser is firefox for recent years. I've been using it very well. I am very satisfied with the customization of Firefox. But today, Firefox stop several times when i use youtube and google. Some youtube videos are not start, and scroll is stop end Firefox says "No response" when i am searching in google. Some of the youtube didn't run at Firefox, so I played them in Chrome and it worked well. And it was not an Internet problem. Because other online programs such as messenger worked well. I bought a new desktop and formatted it a month ago, and I installed the latest versions of Windows and Firefox. This is why I think Firefox is a problem. Please check why Firefox stop today. Thank you.

For nearly half a year I've had a very strange issue with a tab that simply vanishes. It's taken a while to notice and then figure out the pattern, and here's how it seems to go...

I launch Firefox, which already has many open tabs; it's set to reopen my previous session. Typically I then open a new tab to check my email, do a DuckDuckGo search, or something else (but the activity/website doesn't seem to matter). Then something in my email or my search will inspire me to open a second new tab. All of a sudden when I do that, the first new tab of the session is gone. So for example if I was checking my email and saw something I wanted to research, I'd open a new tab and all of a sudden the email tab is gone.

At least a few times I've then opened a *third* tab to go back to the website I just lost, and suddenly the vanished tab will reappear, and I'd then have duplicate tabs on the same website.

Much more often the vanished tab does not return until *later.* That is, I eventually close Firefox and eventually reopen it, and suddenly there it is again. I believe, but I'm not certain, that this *always* causes the vanished tab to reappear. It's a pain to rely on this fix, though, especially since it can take something like 20 seconds to reload all those tabs.

I think this strange behavior only happens when I first launch Firefox -- in other words, only once per session. I've never noticed it hapening a second time in the same session. I can freely open new tabs without fear of losing another (at least none that are in the visible part of the tab row).

Anyone else have this issue? Or can you recreate it?

I have forgot my password to my account and also lost the 2FA codes. Since I have no longer access my account, I want Firefox to delete my account. I used a backup email on that account. I tried to open a new Firefox account with that backup account, but I wasn't allowed to create a new account with that backup email address.

I can provide you my national ID,passport and other ID cards to prove that I am the real owner of the account.

You can even video call me if you want but please delete my account so that I can open a new account with those emails.

Hello,

After the latest updates, whenever I attempt to navigate to someone's instagram account from a hyperlink or even typing it directly into the browser bar, I get the picture below 9 out of 10 times. I imagine it has something to do with cookies and how Firefox has changed their default settings or something, but I'd rather not have to delete my browing history, data and specific Instagram cookies every time I want to search instagram pages. Is this happening to anyone else?

Unfortunately MeraGana web player is not supported by your current browser.

MeraGana web karaoke player makes extensive use of modern web technologies to bring you the best features and audio quality possible, but unfortunately not all browsers support these features.

Here's a list of browsers which tested to work fine: - Chrome (version 86+), download the Google Chrome browser - New Edge (version 86+), download the Microsoft Edge browser - Opera (version 72+), download the Opera browser

Here's a list of browsers which are officially *unsupported*: - Internet Explorer (all versions) - Safari (all versions) - Mozilla Firefox (all versions) - All mobile browsers (but we have apps!) Download from Apple App Store and Google Play Store

When posting or reblogging on Tumblr, I receive the following error message: "Error loading forms / Hmm. This doesn't seem to be working. Please try again?"

It's working normally on Safari on the same machine, so it seems to just be Firefox. I've tried disabling various plugins, but I can't tell what's up.

The "Inbox" page also has some of its functionality hidden. (The top right navigation has disappeared, and the buttons to answer "asks" have disappeared.)

Thanks so much, friends!

Hey guys! I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome and I'm loving it except for the fact that download speeds are really slow. I have a internet speed of 360Mb/s and yet Firefox will download most stuff at ~500Kb/s. In other places like Steam my download speed is around 10% of internet speed (so today it would be around 36Mb/s) but Firefox is really slow. I did some research and used some console commands and uninstalled some extensions but to no avail. Thanks for your time!

I have open half a dozen or so tabs related to one subject. I would like to put them all into one "super tab", such that only the super tab shows as an open tab. Then, by clicking on that tab, it would show the tabs within it, any one or more of which could be selected. Is this possible, and if so how is it done? Perhaps there's an add-on or extension that would do this.

I have already created a multi-tab bookmark that sorta, maybe accomplishes the same thing. But it's not as convenient as what I envision as described above.

Thanks for any advice or words of wisdom.

First of all wow, it's frustrating that is it this difficult to report issues and get help with Firefox. That being said, beginning 1/8/2021 every time I try to create a post with images on Facebook, Firefox displays the "a web page is slowing down your browser" error. Waiting does nothing and if I stop it, I can't make the post. I use Facebook heavily for business so this is a MAJOR issue. Clearing the cache, cookies, and site data does NOT fix the issue. I've not had an issue with this before now, and I've been using Firefox for years. I have been using the Facebook container for several months, but this is the first I've had an issue. Is this a Firefox issue, or a Facebook issue? Please help, this issue is getting annoying enough that I have to use a different browser and I don't like doing that.

Thank you
