Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.foxnews.com.

If you entered the right address, you can:

   Try again later
   Check your network connection
   Check that Firefox has permission to access the web (you might be connected but behind a firewall)

Website shortcuts aren't working properly

I'm having a problem where certain websites does not show up as shortcuts on the startpage. Like for example reddit.com or twitter.com does not appear even though I visit those pages often and more than any other page. It doesn't make sense that a random website shows up immediately as I visit it once, but not the websites I visit often. So I have to type in manually in the search bar to get there instead of just clicking the shortcut on the startpage.

I COULD pin the websites on the startpage, but the pictures only show up as the automated pictures such as "R" or "T" for Reddit and Twitter respectively. I'm also having problems using my own pictures for the shortcuts and I'd rather fix the problem instead of having to pin websites as shortcuts. It also looks a bit ugly in my opinion.

This started happening after I switched Microsoft accounts on my PC and started using Firefox on another user account. By the time I switched, I was logged into the same account on two different users on my PC, and I synchronized several times. That other logged in user is now removed from my Firefox account and I also completely deleted the other user on my PC to free up space. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and deleted all the files on my PC, but it still doesn't work. I have checked in about:profiles and it says there is a "default-release" and "default" profile.

Latest versoin of Firefox blocks in-line photos in Gmail

My Firefox browser recently automatically updated. Subsequent to the update, I could no longer upload photos and insert (in-line) them into the body of gmail emails. It would indicate that "There was an upload error" (see attached photo). The photos are all small JPGs about 300kb in size. This issue was not present in older versions of Firefox.

Troubleshooting and reading a bunch of articles indicated the problem was not with Google gmail, but instead a fault with the latest version of Firefox.

I then used both Microsoft Edge and Chrome browser, which allowed me to successfully insert inline photos, so it is clear the issues are with the latest version of Firefox.

Is there a work-around or patch I can download for Firefox to fix this, or, should I just quit using Firefox and instead use Micro-Edge or Chrome for emails?

Hello,

I have checked the box "Always ask you where to save files". It works well most of the time, however, I have faced a case in which it does not. Opening a link to a pdf file directly from google search results, somehow bypasses this option, and starts downloading the pdf automatically, and opens it after download finished. I believe you are aware how dangerous it is to open pdf files directly.

If there is a solution to this, I will be glad to hear from you, as it is very important issue. Thank you beforehand.

My Firefox browser is so much slower than the other browsers I use. Is there a way to improve the speed at which my Firefox can operate? It just takes longer to load sites and to navigate within those sites. It just seems to be a speed thing. My Firefox does not crash or go just hay wire, just has slow processing. The video's I watch on YouTube also are slow and stall at times. Can someone at Firefox help? Thank you.
