duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1177711

When Mozilla Fiefox upgraded a few days ,it stopped the "Add to Cart " Paypal buttons from working on my websites. www.rickysounds.co.uk and www.ricsrus.com. My customers have been emailing me and saying they have the same problem. trying to use the buttons generates a Paypal screen that says " THings don't appear to be working at the moment, Please try later.(tried to upload an image but it wont upload to this page.)

Google chrome and Safari work correctly so I reinstalled Mozilla Firefox 54 and this version works perfectly.

I tried to use my PC laptop and the latest FirefoxPC version has the same problems ,again IE on the laptop works perfectly.

I am losing business as a result of this problem so I would appreciate a fast resolution to the problem

This was asked in 2011, but the solutions are not compatible with the present 2017 version. I routinely Override the colors specified by the webpages going back and forth between "Only with High Contrast Themes" and "Always". I'd like to create either a custom hot-key (preferred) or a menu bar toggle button to go back and forth between these two choices. The option chosen needs to be compatible with the latest version of FireFox. Any suggestions?

Ever since I installed the add-on Favicon Picker 2 that lets you change the bookmark icons, I can't open tabs any more. The second tab will open, but if you try to go to a site, the FIRST tab redirects to that site. Basically, I can only use one tab at a time. Is there any way I can keep this add-on and use tabs?

Firefox needs to fix the fullscreen bookmarks window "feature" for Firefox for Mac. It sucks.

The bookmarks window opens in fullscreen--FULLSCREEN--and eliminates every option to do anything other than look at bookmarks. It does not minimize, it's just in that way… (read more)

The bookmarks window opens in fullscreen--FULLSCREEN--and eliminates every option to do anything other than look at bookmarks. It does not minimize, it's just in that way. The only way to get out of that nonsensical window is command+W. Why would Mozilla choose to display bookmarks in such a stupid, obnoxious way?

On OS X's Dock I can right click on Firefox's Icon and get 2 options: "new Window" and "New Private Window".

On Firefox Quantum, I get these options normally when I first open the application, but after having it open for some time, these options just disappear.

I work with multiple desktops and move the Firefox windows around if that helps.

Attaching two screenshots of before/after.

I originally posted "web site viewable" and marked it as solved because I though it was a DNS issue.

That was wrong. The problem is with Firefox. The web site "http://www.flightofthephantom.com/what-is-an-imu" cannot be accessed when using a specific DNS FreeDNS. It however works when I use my ISP's DNS or Google or Quad9.

I know this is a problem with firefox because 1. Safari on the same workstation works for all DNS's 2. I created a new user account on the same machine and Firefox works in that new account for all DNS's

I have another Mac OS el capitain workstation which has the exact same problem. To correct the problem I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

I still have Firefox on the original machine with this problem and I would like to know what is the corruption.

I have performed the following to correct the issue but was unsuccessful.

1. Refresh Firefox 2. Cleared Cached ,history and cookies 3. I have reinstalled firefox

What components remain after the above that would prevent operation of a specific web site (I believe there are other sites) via a specific DNS?
