Hello, I've followed Firefox's invitation to install and update the browser on my Mac. Unfortunately the new version is not compatible with OS 10 El Capitan, my operating system, so now I can't use Firefox at all. How I do get the old version back?

Thank you, Lars

When I click on a link to a PDF in a website, expecting it to open, it does not open. Instead, I am asked to save it to a file on my computer (apparently more or less selected at random). To open it and read it I have to navigate to that file. Not a terrible problem, but bothersome. I imagine I must have inadvertently told Firefox to behave this way.

After that my recommended by pocket disappeared. I opted out of disabling all cookies, but it hasn't reappeared. I checked about:config and the setting for recommendations is true. Please help!

Hello Everyone,

After inserting the proxy information, webpages in the container tab refuse to load/connect, I insert the IP address and I've also tried the Fully qualified domain name, using the type://host:port syntax, I get "The proxy server is refusing connections" and "The connection has timed out" error messages.

If I setup the proxy via the settings menu the entire browser uses the proxy server address, I am trying to specify a different proxy server for each container.

Hi. On dictionary.com when I type in a word in the search bar and press enter, it works fine, but when I am on a definition page on dictionary.com (not the homepage) and I type a word in the search bar and press enter, it does not work. The page does not respond.

Also when I am on biblehub.com and I type in a reference (like Genesis 1:1) in the search bar at the top and press enter, I get directed to a blank page: https://biblemenus.com/topmain/send.php?q=undefined

In the search bar at the top of biblehub.com I must click the magnifying glass icon in order for it to work, which is annoying.

Note that a while ago (I don´t know how long ago) these things used to work correctly. I don´t know whether a Firefox update caused the problem or whether it was a change to the coding on the webpages. I am on the latest version of Firefox. Neither of these problems happen on Chrome.

Let me know what can be done to fix it. Thank you.

Firefox recently stopped playing embedded youtube videos on my phpBB forum site?

i keep the latest firefox and only recently showed up embedded videos play fine on Chrome and others

here's a link to my forum which includes an embedded Youtube video demonstrating the issue, does it play on your browser? (ONLY firefox has an issue on my computer, chrome, etc. work fine)

https://www.mchenrysoftware.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=2045

thanks for any tests/insight into what might be causing the issue

ADDITIONAL COMMENT: why don't you include a date on these posting? a lot of wasted time on old posts? and also need a 'Preview' on these before posting?

Amazon.com works on Firefox on my second desktop computer and on my iPhone. It does not work properly on my primary desktop, this one It does work on my desktop using Edge. Everything in Amazon.com works on this desktop except I cannot view my previous orders, the link in the upper right corner ""returns and orders." It begins to load but the orders do not load. I cannot see any of them.

I uninstalled Firefox, ran Ccleaner to clean the registry, then it's Health feature, I probably should have restarted after doing that.

I installed a new download of Firefox twice; it fails.

On certain websites I notices I have 'unknown errors' when trying to log in.

Usually this is remedied by either using Chrome or clearing cookies and the cache.

Both of there are inconvenient and result in a great deal of wasted time.

The usual response by these websites is "get Mozilla to fix this".

I'm getting sick of this.

I don't want to switch to Chrome but I will have to if this persists.

Hi there; I like Firefox and I always recommend it to others, please keep it the way it was, simply good privacy and easy to use and work with. It used to was possible to clear cookies for a specific website but now it's gone! and I can't figure out how can I delete/clear cookies for a specific website! I think even if there is a way to do this, you've made it so complicated! it was easy, just click on setting icon next to website address in address bar and clear cookies! once I tried this and it took me to other pages and ended up to clearing all my cookies in entire Firefox! and this made difficulties for me to find all my username and passwords and enter them one by one...

Please make it simple as before. Thanks.

From time to time I get an Error Overflow message in Firefox. Sometimes I enter the website directly in the address line and other times I click a link in an email and it tries to open in Firefox as it is my default browser. If I copy the address line to Chrome it loads correctly.

This is mildly irritating as it puzzles me each time it happens.

I have attached a screen snip showing the error.
