How most of the the "serious" articles of those recommended come from moderately left to very left sources. The well-intentioned but hopelessly misguided (and often destructive) selections from the NYT, Atlantic, Vox, New Yorker, etc. are of little little interest or use to me. Please consider articles and opinion pieces from the WSJ. American Spectator, NR, etc. as well. You might just increase revenue and profit. Thanks! Ted Alpert

Until the most recent update, which came along with a Microsoft update, I was able to stream Peacock.com but now I'm getting an error message that my system configuration isn't compatible with Peacock. I have also had issues with YouTube, which keeps telling me that I have to disable adblockers - which I'm not running. I had another unrelated problem that I fixed by doing a system restore to before the Microsoft update, so there should be no issues with that end of things. It has to be Firefox because I can still stream Peacock on Microsoft Edge.

So, does ANYONE have any idea how I can fix this problem? I much prefer using Firefox to Edge and I don't use Chrome.

Thanks.

I'm using 121.0 for Manjaro

Today, I had a problem trying to re-load a website I had saved just the other day. I have a bunch of such websites for a technical project I am working on.

I tried loading the other saved web-sites. All had been saved as a complete file and by this browser. I have no other browser installed.

The problem was that the saved web-page kept re-loading. No forum-discussion could be found so the trouble-shooting option was entered into.

I opened Firefox in safe-mode (via the command-line call). Running a suggestion; clearing cache didn't resolve the problem (in safe-mode the saved web-page still kept re-loading with a rapid cycle)

The next "suggestion" I tried was refresh Firefox. Firefox advised that none of my saved data and settings would be lost. Well, my entire profile is gone!!! Thankfully synchronizing worked such that I could recover passwords, history etc. What are NOT recovered are the settings for websites, probably other infos too.

I have two login-accounts on my system and I have a shared, common profile for both. This was using a public folder with access rights only for those two users.

I have been using that profile architecture for months. This is now gone!! Those folders do not exist anymore. In its place are entirely new folders, their formats completely unfamiliar to me. I am recalling my latest backup but will it be of any use???

Many thanks, indeed.

I switched from windows 10 to 11 and to a new laptop. Here in my new laptop Asus tuf 15 ,even though it has better RAM , internet connection, cache memory, cores the FIREFOX doesnot function properly. It's extremly laggy specially when I use YOURUBE . In my earlier HP laptop with 8 GB ram I could use 10-15 tabs at one time .It would still not lag . It could do web development at the same time I could watch youtube tutorials. But now I barely open 4-5 tabs the youtube starts freezing up to the extent that I really get frustrated. Please so something or I will have to switch to BRAVE browser or something.

Today when I opened my browser, my shortcuts were replaced with Chinese ones. How did this happen and where did my old ones go?

My laptop was sleeping, and not restarted. I had reopened my firefox.

These Chinese ones do not show in my list of shortcuts. (pictures below)

I do not use Chinese language sites

Malware scan turning up nothing (yet)

What is the best way to restore my shortcuts and make sure random ones do not come back.

Cheers!

For a couple of weeks now, out of nowhere, links I click from emails sent to me open in new tabs but are blank pages. This includes download links, so I'm unable to see any links or download anything being emailed to me by a number of senders. Weirdly, some senders' links work. I didn't change anything and don't know what to do about this. Please advise if you have a solution, thanks!
