Hi, Firefox is not opening 192.168.8.1 since 2 days ago. I have changed service providers, but now I cannot access my MIFI router's admin page. The little spinning wheel goes on forever, til I get an error message "The server at 192.168.8.1 is taking too long to respond and has timed out". No matter how many times I try, or in safe mode, I cannot connect. As I am changing service providers, I need to access the router to administrate the new simcard.

I hope someone can help? Thank you!

Hi Team,

We have proxy pac file which we use to determine certain restricted websites and force them to use socks proxy, however if I enable HTTPS Only mode on firefox, seems it doesn't work.

Please check if HTTPS Only mode still goes through Proxy settings first before validating?

I'm honestly now sure how best to explain this because it's kind of weird, but I will try my best. Basically, Firefox thinks there's two windows open, when really there is only one. When I right click on the Firefox logo in my Dock (I'm on Mac), it tells me I have two windows open, the main window I use and then a second "What's new with Firefox" window (see screenshot). This is the "invisible" window. I have tried many things to get Firefox to realize that window doesn't exist. I've quit Firefox many times, tried to get my Mac to display all windows (it says there are no open windows when I close out of my main window), restarted my Mac, cleared cache and cookies, removed from Dock, etc. At this point, I don't know what's left to do other than remove Firefox entirely and re-install it and I would hate to do that. I hope I've provided enough detail to get the gist of the issue. If you need any more info, I'm happy to provide it! Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

Ever since I used 'Refresh' to solve a problem, I now have to sign into all my regular sites, like YouTube, FaceBook and especially Twitter, where I receive a warning every time I sign in. (See attachment).

To clarify: before the Refresh, I could just bring up these sites and be automatically signed in. My computer remembers the sign in names and passwords, but I still have to go through the process, and with Twitter, I'm getting these warnings, which has caused that site to ask for more info to verify my identity.

So: why am I coming up as a 'new user' every time I want to go to sites I've been going to for years?

Thank you,

John

I have had a single Firefox Account since 2018. I have updated through three primary email addresses: let's call them 1, 2 & 3.

July 2020 - I changed Firefox Account to primary email 2, and removed primary email 1.

August 2020 - I registered for Firefox Monitor. I added many "another email" (the maximum number, 10 I think) to be monitored : let's call them emails 4-13, and set "Send breach alerts to the affected email address".

December 2020 - I changed Firefox Account to primary email 3, and email 2 is my account secondary email.

April 2021 - I received an email to email 4 saying it was in a breach.

Today - on monitor.firefox.com it says I am not monitoring any emails except my primary email 3, and have not been in any breaches as pictured.

Therefore, there is a bug with monitor.firefox.com: - On the one hand, email 4 (and presumably 5-13) are all still being monitored. - But on the other hand, monitor.firefox.com states I am not monitoring any other emails.

Could a Mozilla dev please get in touch to look into this specific case?

I'm tried everything I can find online and nothing works. I'm at my wits end here. I exported my bookmarks to HTML on Mac1 across my network, copied them to Mac2 and now I can import them into Firefox, but I cannot get them into the toolbar no matter what I do or which solutions I try to use from online and it's driving me nuts! Why do they have to make this so impossible?

Firefox crashes whenever I go onto a certain web page such as a few parts of the discord website and some YouTube videos. I have tried nearly everything I can find which is somewhat similar to the issue I am having. I tried disabling WebGL, tweaking security.sandbox.content.level, reinstalling, checking my add-ons, and rebooting my macbook (macOS 10.13.6). The same thing happens on safari, but not chrome.

The crash reason stated is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Here are the crash reports: bp-e8779820-e621-4739-a43e-e392a0210505 bp-29a6f662-0f4c-44d4-afbd-5e5900210505 bp-9ce6f8a8-6ddf-4771-824e-f94280210505

Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??

I have an older imac. It works well but I can't open a lot of files/applications or even reply to emails on updated hotmail version. My os is 10.2.8 and I am using 2.0.0.20. My OS can't handle later versions. I can't buy latest upgrade from MAC (snow leopard or whatever latest is) because my computer not compatible with higher/newer upgrades. I want to use my computer but be able to have hotmail work and open pics etc. I don't know what to do.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Today is when I can no longer reply with hotmail, they ask me to upgrade to newer but need higher firefox to do so.
