I'm an American living in Brazil. When I want to visit an international company's USA website, my browser automatically adds .br (Brazil) after .com to take me to the company's Brazilian website. How do I stop this? Walmart is one (but NOT the only) example. If I type www.walmart.com, I am automatically redirected to www.walmart.com.br. Grrrr ~ so stupidly frustrating!

My location on aol is always wrong, and when I correct it, it changes until I close aol. When I log in again, it has changed back to the same wrong location. This only happens on Firefox. It's very annoying. Thanks for any help.

Looked over account activity and found that my location was from Herndon, Virginia. I was logged in from that location, however, I reside in Kenosha, WI. Am I being hacked/tracked or some form of malware on my computer? How do I resolve this issue? I am running a Mac using OS 10.9.5.

Do I need to do a clean install?

About 1 year ago I subscribed to VPN provider to get VPN for London in the UK. I did this to watch UK soap operas. Each time I log on to firefox it automatically locates me in the UK. Lately I have been using firefox to purchase items on Paypal which assumes there is fraudulent activity. Other websites do the same. How do I reset my firefox to my local Australian IP Address?

Regards

I use Windows 10 and live in UK but every website based on my geolocation settings(hope I'm using right terminology, basically websites that check my IP address) treat me as I am based in Germany. I.E YouTube displays me German content, other website that don't need subscription, displays me German content and all website is in German. I checked and in Firefox, and Firefox only, my IP is shown as IP originated from Hamburg. Can I change this? And how? I said that only Firefox do that as I've checked in Edge and Chrome and they both display my IP correct. I also called my ISP about that and they checked and there's everything ok at their end. I already deleted all the cookies from Firefox, but it didn't worked. IP is still German. How can I fix that?

When searching, I get mostly Canadian .ca references. Is there some change I can make to get US references? Like .com .org .net....etc I worked at the Microsoft store and they say my computer settings are set correctly, and that MS Edge works correctly. However, I would like to stay with the FireFox search engine.

Appreciate any help and or suggestions.

Hello!

My partner is unable to access the following secure site via Firefox 55.0.3: https://mdlandrec.net/main/

He receives the error message: "Secure Connection Failed. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." (Full error message screen shot attached.)

Meanwhile, I am able to access the site with no problem, using the same version.

The error message suggests I contact the site owners, which is not possible. The site is a state government site and the owners are not responsive. I cannot wait for this problem to resolve itself. Is there any way to bypass this security so that my partner's Firefox can access the site?

Thank you! BenGW

I clicked "allow and remember", delete cache completely and nothing. I tried all the solutions from answers I could find but still doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
