1. I'm using containers and they are not allowing me to sign into theregister.co.uk site or any bbc.com or bbc.co.uk site if I open the site within a container.

On theregister.co.uk, clicking on log in refreshes the page but nothing else.

On the BBC sites, clicking on log in opens the same page in one or two new tabs. Oddly, if I've logged in outside of container, the Log In button flashes momentarily as Account which is what would be in the place if I were logged in.

I've tried clearing the cookies for both sites but it doesn't help. I can log into either without a problem if it's not in a container.

2. If I remove a site from a container's site list, I cannot open it in that container.

Any ideas?

There is a site that I've been accessing for months from firefox. Today, all my attempts to access it result in "Forbidden: You don't have permission to access this resource." If I bring up a safari browser, the exact same URL loads fine. I didn't change any firefox configuration settings. Any ideas?

Hi there. I have a feature that I would like to see on Firefox (Pinch zoom on touch displays in the Firefox PDF reader).

So what I did I searched for the best possible way to submit my feedback. I belive to have found it under Help -> Submit feedback. But upon clicking this button, I get immediately redirected to this page:

https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page

which undoubtly seems like a redirect error.

Tried this Link on my Firefox (with addons), Firefox private and Edge, always the same result.

Happy to hear some suggestions!

I recently couldn't logon to my local online banking site. The thing is, is had been working just fine for years, and then all of sudden stopped working. Upon calling the bank they said everything looked fine on their end and try using a different browser. I used Chrome (would rather NOT use that browser), and I could logon fine. I found that if I disabled Privacy Possum it worked fine, so, now when I want to logon to my local bank I just disable Privacy Possum and it works. But I don't understand why it all of sudden quit working.

Now I can't logon to my Penfed credit card account. I tried turning off all the extensions, NO help. I went to the Firefox trouble shooting section and refreshed Firefox and did what ever else they said to do like clear ALL my history and cache...still no help. My Penfed had been working just fine until today, and it also comes up fine using Chrome. Is there anything that has changed in Firefox that is blocking my two online banking accounts that you know of?? This seems very strange.

I have found out this issue very recently when I was trying to upload my music library into my Youtube Music account, but couldn't do so because I was using my brand account. I tried to switch out to my personal account, but after clicking my personal account, the page refreshes and my account is still my brand account. I tried this with Youtube in Firefox and it's producing the same problem. I'm able to switch in and out of my accounts in Chrome, but yields differently when I tried it with Firefox. I figured I can maybe get some help to what I am supposed to do if I still want to use Firefox and able to switch account more easily.

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

I keep my Bookmarks Sidebar open. It works properly for a few minutes and then it doesn't. The behavior it shows is as follows.

1. It quits scrolling. I have to click the web page and go back to the sidebar to scroll again. 2. It scrambles the bookmarks when I click one. 3. When I click one bookmark it opens some other one.

Basically it acts crazy. The one fix I have found is when it is acting up and I close and reopen the sidebar it starts working properly again for a while. Then the problems repeats until I close and reopen the sidebar.

I manage a website and when displayed in Firefox the menus are not displayed on the home page. This is not true for all other web browsers who display the site perfectly. This has only happened in the latest release of Firefox, previous versions were ok. I am at a loss to understand how this has happened and would appreciate any help in overcoming the problem. The two screenshots show Firefox display and the correct display using Edge.
