Hi. I use Firefox for years and with the actual problems searching for a replacement did not find another browser, that I myself would consider as equivalent (in first place concerning privacy and ad-free browsing). The problems started with version 83 or 84 and there has nothing changed since. As I have no own Internet connection, I use to store the webpages on my disk to view them later offline. However, in lots more than 50% (probably over 75%) of save trials, Firefox fails! What I try to do is "Save As" and then selecting "as webpage, complete". In the "Downloads" tab, the page appears with the word "Failed" (instead of "Completed" + file size) below the filename. As I really need this feature, I actually use Google Chrome, that saves the pages properly. But, as I said, I'm not willing to give up the browser I trust and that I consider being simply the best. Thanks for any suggestions.

This problem occurred Oct 24, 2020 Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time (3 weeks after daylight savings time came into effect here). The operating system time is correct. I have cleared the cache several times, rebooted and shut down overnight.

A forum site is displaying the correct times. A site displaying weather information uses the correct time; I loaded it just after 3am and the first time it displayed was 6am as expected.

1. A TV guide normally highlights in red programs currently showing; at present it shows programs showing one hour previously. In Google-Chrome no programs are highlighted. I have removed the cookies and that has made no difference. 2. Facebook.com times are one hour late, both the time of posts in the newsfeed and times of notifications.

Recently, every time I go to YouTube on Firefox it only half signs me in. When I sign in, the home page of YouTube will look normal until I click on one of my playlists or the "add to watch later" button on any video. Then, it will ask me to sign in again. This only occurs on Firefox, other browsers are still fine. And, I've already tried refreshing Firefox, clearing my cache, and reinstalling. Any ideas?

What did Mozilla do recently to screw up Firefox?

On some websites (e.g., https://www.usbank.com/index.html and https://www.penfed.org/) which I commonly visit, I suddenly start getting error messages when I try to log in ("Your username and/or password are incorrect. Please try again." on the U.S. Bank website and just "FAIL" on the PenFed Credit Union website). I can log into both without any problems using the Chrome browser (which I don't like using). I have called both U.S. Bank's and PenFed's website support departments (having spent over an hour talking to each one) and both claim that there's nothing wrong with their servers, websites, or web pages, but instead lay the blame on FireFox; I'm starting to believe this, since I can log into my accounts using Chrome without any problems. This problem just started (for me) two days ago. And yes, I cleared all of my history, and I also shut down and re-started Firefox.

So, with this background, What did Mozilla do recently to screw up Firefox?

When I enter my user name & password, I get the following error - Error: 1007 ID: 18.77b0f748.1607801677.a17cbfa - It was fine a few days ago, but since yesterday I have this problem. I can still login using another browser, so this must be a Firefox issue. Any help would be appreciated.

I have used Chrome as my default browser until a Microsoft up date which would not connect Chrome from the desktop. At that time I made Firefox my default browser. FF will not accept my Amazon password. The option it gives me is to change the password. I do not want to change the password as it works fine on Chrome and also Edge. What can I do so that FF will accept my password?

how can I force my browser to redirect links that point to www.amazon.com to actually go to smile.amazon.com? I'm not wanting to BLOCK amazon, just enter through the proper access. most links are put into emails/documents as www.amazon.com and I want my browser to default/redirect to smile.amazon.com. if I can figure this out, I can also use this for other sites which support non-profits for traffic/transactions.

I downloaded and installed the latest version of Firefox into the new Mac mini (Apple Silicon) arrived at home today, but Japanese sentences in every website are displayed not in a Japanese font (like Hiragino) but in a Chinese font.

What should I do so that I make the sentences display in a Japanese font correctly? I tried to change the font settings of the Firefox, but the settings get back to the default font instantly. Please answer me if you know how to solve this problem.

(I'm sorry if my English above is poor or incorrect.)

I really want to disable that Firefox uses the mouse thumb buttons 4 and 5 as "previous page" and "next page" commands.

Example: Sometimes I study/play for hours a chess problem on https://tactics.chessbase.com/de/Solve but as soon the page gets reloaded it will be a new chess problem - no way to go back!

Somebody wrote a solution to disable the backspace key (on keyboard) triggering the "previous page" command, assuming the mouse thumb button 4 would be used by Firefox as backspace key. Unfortunately this assumption proofed to be wrong. The solution only disabled the backspace key to trigger the "previous page" command, but the mouse thumb buttons STILL DO TRIGGER the "previous page" and "next page" commands.

Where can I disable the mouse thumb buttons in Firefox - without disable the thumb buttons entirely in the Logitec software?
