Windows 10 desktop user, Firefox says that it's up to date.

Background information: After running normally for most of yesterday, my computer entered sleep mode while I was having dinner and then had some sort of trouble coming out of it, forcing it to restart entirely. Only Firefox and Discord were open at the time the computer entered sleep mode.

Upon restarting Firefox, however, I noticed that my tabs were loading unusually slowly even after they had allegedly finished - switching between tabs often results in white screens with the circle in the middle of them for several seconds, and there is noticeable lag when attempting to open links or type in the search bar, among other things. This problem has persisted after restarting as well as shutting the computer down entirely before rebooting it.

Troubleshoot Mode made no noticeable difference, nor did clearing the cookies and cache afterwards. However, in my subsequent attempts to relog into several sites afterwards, I was unable to do so for both Google (via Youtube; the saved email fills properly but it will not proceed to where you'd normally enter the password) and, ironically, the mozilla/firefox websites itself, which claims I do not have cookies enabled.

(Which means that, embarrassingly, I've had to use Edge just to login here and ask this question...)

All the other websites that I've tried to login to have worked, though, so I'm not sure what's going on.

Can anyone help me?

When I attempt to run Cox Contour I am presented with "Your system isn't compatible with Contour." However, I am running the latest Windows 10 Pro and Firefox 94.0.2. Contour runs fine under MS Edge and Google Chrome. I have already spoken to Cox, rebooted both Firefox and my PC, and verified that both Edge & Chrome can run Contour. Contour ran fine with Firefox two days ago, and I MUCH prefer Firefox to either Edge or Chrome.

Please advise.

There are several requests similar to mine, mostly about Windows 7 (i have windows 10). I made sure the "general settings" within Adobe were set to use Acrobat as default, and i set firefox options (as near as i could tell) to save my pdf's with Adobe acrobat also. However, ALL my files - both already saved and new pdf's - now are listed as filetype "Firefox HTML.pdf" and all have the html icon. For my husband's business, we have to fill out state forms in pdf and forward copies to them and to clients. My clients are frustrated and confused that they cannot recognize the pdf's i sent by the original icons, and some don't seem to understand how to open the "html" files i send them (most of our clients probably use other browsers: when they showed up as straight adobe files this was never a problem) I need to fix BOTH my stored pdf forms AND new fillable forms from the state as filename.pdf with the adobe icon. PLEASE!!

In the last few days, I started having multiple web sites blocked with "SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE". They work fine with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, and I trust them. One example is http://www.wumb.org, a public radio station. I found nothing in Firefox Help to bypass this security flag and go to the page.

If there is a work-around, please make it show up when searching for SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE in Firefox Help. If there is no work-around, please add one. Otherwise, Firefox, my favorite browser, will quickly get a bad reputation.

Thanks,

I am having to clear the Firefox cache multiple times on UPS tracking page in order to get it to work. I can track one package, but if I try another, the page says: We are unable to complete your tracking request at this time. Please try again later." This response will not change until I clear the data and cache and start over. Having to try and troubleshoot web pages is time consuming and annoying. If it is a trusted site, why can it not just work?

This is a recent issue - none of the other browsers I use are having this problem, but I really don't want to start using multiple browsers just to get through my day. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Since upgrading to FF 94.0.2, I cannot logon to Chase Online Banking. The site texts me a code which I then enter and receive a message that part of the site does not seem to be working. If I use Edge, I can get in without a problem. I went into troubleshooting mode and it let me logon without a problem, but returning to normal mode repeats the problem. Using private mode does not work either. I'm not sure what is going on here and any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!
