Hi. What is the problem with my mozilla firefox? i have an updated version. From time to time, it just stops working. It might be when i open multiple tabs, or when i open 1 tab. When it happens, it just stays on "loading" status, and shows blank screen, and the url im requesting does not open. But when i close mozilla, and start again, then it will work.

I am increasingly finding that websites of all sorts load but I can't click on hyperlinks to other pages. Reloading the page or restarting doesn't help. I also can't type in boxes, which means I can't log in to a number of sites.

This problem does not occur in 'troubleshoot mode'.

In a linked problem, there is a webpage I use often which simply won't work properly - most of the content is absent. Again, if I use 'troubleshoot mode' it works fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks

For some reason a few days ago after closing Bookmarks sidebar a few times to view full-window video, I re-enabled the sidebar as always (both with clicking the icon and CTRL + B, and they came back. Now, EVERY time I open FF (using W10), the sidebar will NOT show up unless I click CTRL + B or the icon on the bar on top of the window. I have installed nothing. Nothing crashed. FF is up to date. I refreshed it. I uninstalled it. I REINSTALLED it from scratch. I performed a system restore FOUR TIMES, yet cannot get back my sidebar when opening FF. Further, when I open the sidebar with CTRL + B, the column is VERY narrow and I have to widen it. So it appears that FF cannot remember the setting for the sidebar and defaults to a skinny one when activated. I ran troubleshooting mode and YES! The sidebar works as it should and opens with a new browser opening...ONCE. I disabled/deleted ALL extensions (I only use four), but I have not changed any parameters of FF or my system in general for this to be happening. I've checked EVERY setting in FF over and over, trying everything that could be relevant. Now what? After reinstalling I'm left with the same problem. What can I do? I cannot live with NO sidebar on startup. Oh and the silly Bookmarks bar DOES work, but I don't use it...it's stupid and I don't like the look or placement of it. This problem is SIDEBAR ONLY.

Firefox Sync - about:config settings not applied on other devices

I've just created a Mozilla account so that I can sync my customised about:config settings between devices but I'm struggling to get it working. For each setting I have customised that isn't on the default whitelist, I have created a new boolean setting as follows:

'services.sync.prefs.sync.xyz' where xyz is the setting I have customised.

Each of these newly created boolean settings is set to 'true'.

When I 'sign in and sync' on a new device and check about:config, the values of these custom settings is not changed from the default.

Have I missed something in my understanding of the process?

Any advice will be appreciated.

1.)Firefox 128, pressing enter into an empty search box no longer loads the default search engine website? How to reset previous search engine settings? 2.) I also noticed in firefox 128: I've noticed that you can no longer delete previous searches from the search field. Previously you could use the arrow keys to navigate, then press the shift or option key (varies by platform) in combination with Delete to remove old entries.

Secure site not listed as secure on Firefox

This is a problem I just noticed on Firefox when I went to my website: world-war-2-counterfactual.org/ on the search/address line. Firefox went to the incorrect site of: http://world-war-2-counterfactual.org/ when in fact my site is a secure "https://" site. To test this, I brought up both MS Edge and Google Chrome and typed in: world-war-2-counterfactual.org and both Edge and Chrome went directly to the correct and secure URL. So, why is Firefox going to an incorrect, non-secure URL address? Looks like a browser problem to me. Thank you.

Website no longer accessible - but no problem with that website. Is Mozilla 'blocking' access?

Since doing an update on the Firefox browser, I am unable to access one specific website that had no issues prior. The website that is no longer available to open in Firefox is owned/managed by an organization outside of the USA. After 3 or 4 days of attempting to open this specific website, I launched a Google browser and had no trouble opening the website. I am hoping that Mozilla is not going to the culture of suppressing religious freedoms by deciding which websites can and can not be accessed on that basis.

Experiencing slow upload speeds on 128.0.

Recently got a 1 gig connection and the upload speeds are all over the place. While I prefer Firefox, I did try a couple of different browsers and they both gave me pretty symmetrical speeds close to the 1 gig speed.

My firefox webbrowser used to update almost every time a signed in. It has not let me know it has updated lately. The last few days we are getting constant popups whenever we go online in Mozilla Firefox. Each of them has your logo & gives increasing warnings about a virus asking me to click on a link - We can either x out or click ignore, but have to do it 5 or 6 times.. over & over. I cannot snip it or print screen it as it disappears or just tries to copy the blank background.

I do NOT want to click on these links as it may well download a virus rather than remove it. What do I do? If updating Firefox will help, how do I do it?
