Title. I've followed every guide I've found but the issue still persists. I've created a new profile, reinstalled ff after deleting the whole file from my pc, deleted all cookies for a dozen times, disabled all extensions, started ff in that problem mode or whatever it's called and I still can't login to certain websites.

I type my login credentials, press "continue" and nothing happens.

I hate how much information Google gathers from their users but I used Chrome for five or more years and I never had this issue with their browser. Not once. Even now I constantly have to go back using Chrome because with it I have no issues logging in to the sites while on FF I just can't.

What is going on?

Starting today I am finding it extremely hard to login to some websites. All Firefox does is just sit with a spinning circle after entering a user name and it locks up the browser to a point the I have to go to the Task Manager to stop the FireFox process. I have restarted my computer and refreshed FireFox. I have scanned my computer for malware using Norton 360, Malwarebytes, MSERT, and Windows Defender and all negative. I am having no trouble signing in to a site like https://my.account.sony.com using Edge but using FireFox now is impossible. This needs to be fixed.

Just updated to the latest firefox version 119, and noticed that the url links are now all underlined again. Checked the support page that says it can be undone in settings, but when I opened up to the said setting page, there's no option to uncheck underline links. Where else can underline links be disabled?

Why does Firefox cut off the bottom of the score banner on ESPN website? (See screenshot)! This question was asked 5 years ago and was never really answered correctly https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1189999

(I tried the suggestions made there, but the issue persists), so please don't refer me to that answer.

As you can see, MS Edge has no issue with it, nor does Opera.

I have a work and personal profile. On my work profile, when I go to amazon, I see the pricetag icon in the URL bar and it works as expected. However, on my personal profile, it's not showing up at all; no icon, no prompt, it's like it doesn't exist for that profile. I've restarted both profiles, and it still isn't showing up.

I'd prefer to do my shopping on my personal profile, and not my work profile. Any ideas why it's not working on one?

Certain websites timing out in Firefox but not Safari

On both my old laptop and a new one (so a new installation of Firefox), I'm unable to load Frontier Airlines' website (www.flyfrontier.com) and get a time-out message:


The connection has timed out

The server at flyfrontier.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.


This happens even with all of my extensions disabled, with enhanced tracking protection turned off for that site and with HTTPS-only mode and DNS over HTTPS disabled. It also happens when using Firefox in safe mode. Safari loads the same website very quickly and with no problems. Does anyone know what might be going wrong? Thanks.

I often see that some pages take up too much memory. This critically affects the performance of my laptop with 8 GB of memory. However, I was unable to reproduce this behaviour. Now I have caught two web pages.

https://linuxhandbook.com/sort-top-command/ 

and https://www.tutorialspoint.com/how-to-find-number-of-ram-slots-in-linux The first page quickly takes up 1-2GB and continues to drain memory. The maximum usage was 7 GB on a laptop with 16 GB of memory. This behaviour is the same in Firefox and Chrome. The second page quickly takes up 2GB, which is very noticeable on 8GB laptops. Why do these pages take up so much memory? Most importantly, how can you protect yourself from such an unexpected memory consumption?

Feature "Reopen previous tabs" are under check, but after closing browser by "X" and reopening it, it'll start load Home page alone. This thing works correctly only by "Exit" button in pop-up menu.

This isn't happened on previous versions before and I want you to make it reopen those tabs again, because I don't feel comfortable closing the browser any other way than "X" window button.

I am experiencing issues with my ChatGPT subscription while using it on the Firefox browser. Despite having an active subscription with access to ChatGPT-4, the interface only shows an 'Upgrade' option instead of the 'Refer a Friend' feature, which suggests that my subscription isn't being recognized properly. Additionally, whenever I try to send a message in the chat, I receive an error stating, 'Our systems have detected unusual activity from your system. Please try again later.' I haven't encountered these issues on other browsers. Could you please provide assistance or guidance on how to resolve these problems with Firefox?"

I have tried to clear the cache, and relogin, does not work...

I am wondering if this is an issue of Firefox or ChatGPT, any resolution on this?

I am unable to de-select the "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" setting. The option is checked and I cannot "uncheck" the box. The texted is grey and the check box is a light color denoting it's not able to be toggled.

I searched for a solution and it's not the same problem as others are having where they have the the "never remember history" option enabled. My setting is "remember history."

I am a personal user, and this is my personal computer. I have admin rights on my computer. Running Windows 10 Pro.

Screenshot attached.

Thank you for any help with this.

Suddenly, now on FF 119.0.0.1, JPEG Images no longer open in new tab when clicked with mid-mouse-button (previous behaviour, wanted), instead they get downloaded, safed to DL-folder, and maybe opened in 3rd-party-app. I tried to change the Open-with settings, but to no avail - there's no option to 'Open in Firefox'/Internally. (Only Open with../Download)

I've tried older guides on the topic, which didn't apply here it seems, also cleaned cache, etc.
