I do not know why the laptop "updates" always to some other edition (68.12 ?) which does not have rss despite prevention of mine in settings NOT to update.

What is the latest edition which has rss ?

My Firefox has intermittently (but many times a day) been been slow loading, often simply refusing to load at all. Clicking a link to open in a new tab often opens the tab but the tab says "New Tab" with an oscillating dot on the left. After a few minutes the dot stops and nothing displays. Often clicking something in Google News the new tab says "Opening " and then the Google URL. The page sometimes displays after a couple of minutes but sometimes never does.

I've disabled all my plugins except LastPass, but that doesn't help. My IT Support company hasn't been able to help. I tweeted Firefox and they suggested I DM them. I've done that, even sending a couple of illustrative screen videos. But no oikne has ever responded to my Twitter DM.

Is there any way to talk to a live person and share my screen to get some help?

If not, I'll need to abandon Firefox as my default browser after many, many years. It's become a real productivity-killer.

FF Slides Windows Taskbar On Open, Issue Reopening Last Session

I was having an issue where FF wouldn't restore my tabs on start. "Recently closed tabs" wasn't available, and when choosing "recently closed windows," 2 - 4 new windows would open, along with one which had the previous session tabs.

I noticed in the task manager that FF wasn't actually closing, so I started using "exit" in the FF menu. Now, even after a computer reboot, when I start FF I see a number of windows open and close quickly, along with a identical "copy" of my windows taskbar sliding in from the left to the right, and "replacing" the current one. I had to record my screen to be sure that's what I was seeing. After the "extra" windows flash open and closed, the FF window with the previous session tabs "slides in" with the "new" windows taskbar.

This does not seem normal to me, as my Windows taskbar has never move before unless I moved it. I'd also like to be able close FF without exiting through the menu, or having to reopen and close several windows if I forget to. This behavior is the same in when I start in safe mode as well. I've never synced FF, or signed for that, and I ran malwarebytes and gotten nothing. Is something wrong here?

I've never synced FF, or even signed ti gor that, and I ran malwarebytes and goettn nothing.

I've been using Firefox for several years, and this has never happened before. This is a pretty strange problem and I'm having trouble describing it, so please bear with me.

Since a day or two ago, I've been experiencing a problem where a small number of videos play, but once they get to right before the end, it'll abruptly stop. The play button looks as though the video is still playing even though it's really not, and clicking the play button does nothing. The only way to get the video to play again is to either refresh the page, move the progress bar back to a previous part of the video, or go all the way to the end of the video, in which case it'll allow me to replay it. The videos this problem happens on are completely random, but the problem persists on the same exact videos. This happens with both direct links to videos (i.e. videos like this one) and "embedded" videos (like videos on Reddit, TikTok, YouTube, etc). However, this only happens if the video has no sound or the sound is off, whether I've muted the tab or turned the sound off on the video directly. It also doesn't matter if the video is looped.

There's also a slightly different variation of this issue that seems to happen less often. With this problem, videos will stop right before the end like the videos that have the other problem, but only for a few seconds - after that, the video will end like normal and I can replay it.

I've tried restarting my computer, playing the problematic videos in a private window, disabling all of my extensions, using Troubleshoot Mode, refreshing Firefox, and even uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. This problem does NOT happen on Microsoft Edge. I'm 99% sure it's because of the new update (105.0), as this issue has only started happening after I updated to it. I updated to 105.0.1 earlier today, and it's still happening. I'm thinking of going back to 104.0.2 if this glitch doesn't get fixed (or at least I don't get help) soon, because I know this issue will seriously get annoying after a while.

Two of the videos that have this problem are this video and this video. Note that both have the secondary version of this problem. I would have uploaded a video of the problem to this post, but this website doesn't let me, so I attached the best screenshot I could take instead.

Any help would be appreciated!

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it.

How to BLOCK systemtimezone detection in Firefox? Can this be done with firefox or with the operatingsystem itself? After all i know for a fact that the bromite android browser has this feature and it works. I noticed that disabling javascript blocks systemtimedetection, but it also basically renders the browsers useless for my purposes.. are there specific javascript config settings regarding systemtimezone detection? I really feel that when a website spys on my systemtimezone this is a breach of privacy as this goes beyond the browsers im using to view the website but instead directly access information about my system, im not ok with that... Using a virtualmachine just to fake systemtimezone cannot be the solution, this is ridiculous.

By the way, i hope Mozilla won't let down support for Manivest v2 ever, there is a chance firefox will gain a boost in users after google pushing Manivest v3 that hard... making adblock useless, what a shame.

I have been using Firefox for accessing my desktop online banking for some years. In the last few days, the images on the part of the logon page that requires card and security details are stretched laterally, which prevents use. The text seems normal. See attached screenshot.

I can shrink the image to fit my screen, but I have not entered any details. The bank has checked their end and cannot find anything wrong: suggested that I switch browser - which worked.

I prefer to continue with Firefox, so wish to find a fix. Have I got some malware on-board, or is it an update issue?

I use Norton for security, and I've done a full sweep having updated. Nothing found. I use CCleaner very regularly - nothing found after checking for updates.

What do I need to do now, please?

Hello. I am in need to open www site of Swegon AHU unit which is built on java. I have two installed java versions, 1.8 (one of latest of this branch) and 1.6. Problem is the AHU site is not working with anything newer than 1.6. I can't find proper solution for opening site with version 1.6 without much issues or much asking from browser. I need version 1.8 of java for daily use, and 1.6 is only for mentioned device. I tried to disable java 1.8 in java control panel but it doesn't seem to have any influence. I try to open site in Firefox 52ESR because for my knowledge is it one of latest browser which supported java. The problem is, Firefox each time is asking me what version to select for each class which must be loaded, and these classes are many for one page. It makes working with AHU a pain in azz. Everything because java is out-of-date. I know it is, but I don't have any option - these devices are not mine, and I can't upgrade firmware on myself, and can't force customer to do this. And I don't even know if there is any upgrade for them. I looked in internet but didn't find anything suitable for my case. Is there anything I can do with java or firefox 52ESR settings to make this site works flawless? I set applet in Firefox to not asking when activate java, but it still nagging me with questions and requires confirmations. I can't bypass it. I tried to use Internet Explorer 11 but there it is even worse, because out-of-date java is not allowed to run, no matter what settings i made in application. Please help.

For the last few days I've experienced this issue on the https://bank.barclays.co.uk/ login page (at its second step, the "PINSentry card reader" option, reached after entering basic account details):

  • the page is very wide indeed (too wide for the window),
  • the graphics are distorted (stretched horizontally), and
  • one of the text entry boxes has fallen off the left edge of the window (even though the window's horizontal scrollbar is dragged all the way to the left).

See the attached screen-grab.

I experience this consistently, with Firefox rel 104.0.2 and rel 105.0 (both on Win10). It happens on my desktop PC and on a laptop (also running Firefox 105.0 on Win10). It happens in "normal" AND in Firefox's "Troubleshooting" modes. I have tried using "clear cookies and site data" for "barclays.co.uk", but the problem persists.

One workaround is to do (menu command) "View > Page Style > No Style" (or "View > Enter Reader View)"; the page layout goes squiffy but at least the all the text entry boxes are now accessible. Another workaround is to use MS Edge instead of Firefox (but my preferred browser is Firefox...)

Is this a known issue? Can you suggest a fix?

NB when I do Tools > Page Info, the "General" tab reports "viewport= width= device-width, initial scale= 1". I don't know if that's relevant.

Also on "Tools > Page Info > Media" tab, when I select one of the listed graphic elements, its preview window also renders the graphic stretched. But when I copy that graphic's URL (e.g. "https://bank.barclays.co.uk/authlogin/img/PINsentry_cardreader_card_number.png") and enter that URL into the browser's address bar, then it successfully (and correctly) displays that isolated graphic element, without any stretching.

I have Windows 10 on my desktop computer. Yesterday Firefox updated to version 105. Now when I launch Firefox, and my HomePage loads, the address bar appears highlighted already (like as if I had clicked on it to type in a website). It was never like this before. I tried making Firefox the default homepage- still did it. I went back and set my favorite home page back in- still did it. I also re-started Firefox between each change. Is this a "glitch" with the last update? Is there any "about:config" setting that I need to change settings on? I'd appreciate any help, I know this is a minor problem but it is very frustrating! There have been many changes Firefox has made in the past that luckily I've been able to disable, but I cannot find anything to fix this one.

My Firefox has been infected with MyNewTab. All attempts to remove it with various malware-removing software have failed. It does not appear in any list of installed software. I have found that I can only stop it from interferring with firefox by uninstalling firefox and reinstalling it - without syncing. So I am now trying to reinstatre Firefox to more or less how it was before.

The only real issue is that before it had an add-on - Norton Safe Web - which is not added now. I tried uninstalling Norton 360 and reinstalling it in the hope it would get the addon added. It didn't. But according to what I read it is very easy to add an add-on. I can select it from the list of add-ons, thus displaying a page all about it. According to help notes, you just click to add-on this choicre. But I can see nowhere to click to do it. I've been over that page time after time but see no way of progressing.

Help!!!
