Hi,

I just downloaded Firefox on my new PC (laptop) but for an unknown reason opening a link in a new tab doesn't work. Opening a link in a new window doesn't work either, and opening the link in a new private window does not work either. It is getting frustrating to say the least, as I've never encountered this problem before and I have no idea what to do. :)

Thank you kindly in advance for your help!

I can no longer use Firefox web browser to go to my email in yahoo. Every time I try to log in with my correct password I get reCAPtCHA protected window, which does not work properly and I can never get by this box.

So I have not choice in the matter of using Firefox for my personal email. I do not have this issue in Chrome or Safari.

Is it something in the security settings of Firefox that is causing this issue?

I keep getting freezes, slow downs, sometimes a warning that a page is slow to respond. I'm running FF 83.0. I have the following add-ons: - AdBlock - Colorful Tabs - Hover Zoom - Scroll Zoom - Search by Image.

I'm guessing one of the add-ons is causing the problem, but don't know which one. I've done the restart firefox to stop freezes multiple times. Still happens. Any ideas?

I've used FF for years. I recently tried Chrome and imported to Chrome from FF all my FF bookmarks and data. While using Chrome I've added book marks and more. I want to import back to FF from Chrome bookmarks that were added into Chrome. Is FF's import tool smart enough to filter out from the import all the copies that already exist in FF? Or what is the best method for importing everything?

A few months ago I started having issues logging into certain websites. First, it was logging into Quickbooks. Now I can't log in to my antivirus account, which is Kaspersky. The issue is identical with both websites. I can log in to these websites if I use a different browser, like Microsoft Edge. If I try using Mozilla, the log in page will load, but after I enter my user name and password and hit the log in button the page just sits there and does nothing.

Websites constantly refuse to let me login using Firefox browser, but works on other browsers

I was not able to log into my bank account website tonight, because it kept giving me an error saying 'Feature temporarily unavailable' every time I tried. (attached) I contacted the bank Support, and they told me to clear the cache and try again, but that did not help either. I was able to get into my account using Chrome browser, but this is a constant thing with Firefox, that websites will not work properly for one reason or another, and I have to open a different browser to be able to complete my objectives. Firefox consistently complains about permissions to open websites that were working fine just this morning. Almost like it is random, or something. As well, trying to use online chat in Firefox, is a joke, and I almost religiously have to go to a different browser to chat with anybody online. I have noticed that, for around the last year or so, Firefox browser has become less and less useful,and more and more tedious to use, which is leading me to think about changing my default browser to one that is more reliable. I have been using Firefox, as my browser for many years now, and hope that it can be corrected somehow, because I do not want to switch to a different browser truthfully. I do have addons, mainly ad blockers, but if I remove all addons, the same problems remain. Am I going to have to switch to a different browser that is more consistent, if I want to be able to have reliable internet usage, until you guys get your collective acts together, or what??

I found some information about opening PDF files with firefox. What I could not find is: why are all my PDF documents on my harddisk changed from Acrobat to firefox (see picture). Still when I open a PDF document, my browser opens and I do not want read my pdf documents on the internet.

But I have no idea why all my pdf documents were changed to mozilla pdf.

Have anyone a solution?

Wish there was an email to contact support but I guess this is the only option.

Anyway, as the title states I have a random "invisible" window that I can't get rid of. I click the 'X' and nothing happens and when I close/reopen Firefox it's still there.

Anyone else had this or know of a way to fix it? (Preferably without having to reinstall)

To better control my browsing history and what sites are allowed to leave behind cookies, I primarily use private windows when I browse. I've used private windows in this manner for years, I find them quite useful, however, this means when I accidentally hit that big X at the top right corner, I have nothing but my horrible memory to rely on in trying to restore some of what was rather suddenly lost.

For years I've had Firefox ask before closing windows with multiple tabs, a feature I've found quite useful. Is there any way I can set Firefox behave the same towards private windows?

Please don't respond with the obvious "just stop using private windows". Were that to be a worthy solution, I wouldn't be asking this. I'm not about to sacrifice the benefits of private windows that motivated me to use them in the first place, I just wanna know if I can prevent the consequential loss of tabs I've experienced from it.

(p.s. I've now twice typed this question out in private windows before accidentally closing them, first trying to open the menu to double check my browser version, and second by hitting CTRL-W)

Thank you all, and I hope you have a wonderful day.
