I am receiving the following error message when I try to Manage Autoship on Chewy.com:

The page isn't redirecting properly"

"Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

  • This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

This had not been an issue previously. What can I do to fix it?

I was also blocked from downloading Chrome. Was this caused by last update?

Thanks for your help!

I typically download 30 to 40 video files daily of around 5 MB each. The most I can download seems to be 8 files, then I have to select the next 8 to download. Is there a way I can select all 30 files and have them download one at a time in order without having to keep selecting the next file?

Firefox browser window resets...

After reinstalling Windows 11 Pro on a newly installed SSD my browser resets location and size to default. Nothing listed here in support or found elsewhere through a web search has made a difference. Also, if I leave Firefox open for an extended period of time so that the browser stays where I put it, and keeps the same size, it will crash. As a test, I had Windows resize the browser to the full monitor, closed it, and when I reopened Firefox it filled the monitor. A second time closed and reopened a few minutes later resets back to default location and size. Everything else (bookmarks, extensions, etc.) remains the same. Nothing has been added or removed since the fresh install.

This is the latest version, 23H2, of Windows 11 Pro, which, btw, was the version I was running before the fresh install of Windows 11 Pro.

How can this be corrected?

Thanks.

Yesterday Firefox started closing at random, sometimes instantly as soon as I open it. The crash dialog doesn't open, and if I go to about:crashes my most recent unreported crash is from 2019. Tried refreshing, reinstalling, completely wiping all profiles and starting fresh. If I use troubleshooting mode it won't open properly at allI am at a bit of a loss, any ideas?

I was required to make a quick computer switch. I cannot access my old computer. When I opened Firefox on the new one it was without my bookmarks, saved passwords etc. I really need those passwords. And I don't like an orphaned window for Firefox floating around with my info. At best, how do I get it on my new computer. At worst, how does the info get deleted so that it is not available online to anyone?

For the past few weeks (perhaps after updates?), my Firefox browser has refused to connect through AVG secure VPN - it is completely blocked and time-out on ALL websites. When I disconnect the AVG VPN, then Firefox works immediately correctly. It happens on both private and public networks.

Both Firefox and AVG secure VPN are up to date. Firefox 120.0 (64- bit) AVG Secure VPN 5.28.9117 I have been using AVG professional antivirus and firewall for years. Windows 10 Latest Version.

Any suggestions please?

I saw there was a fix / workaround for pasting text into WhatsApp on desktop in Firefox, but I used to be able to copy and paste images too and that still doesn't work. It works in the AVG secure browser though. It used to work in Chrome, but I don't want to go to Chrome just to send a picture from my desktop. Is there any workaround or fix in Firefox to copy and paste images into WhatsApp on desktop?

WaPo photos appearing blurred in Firefox 120.0 (installed via snap)

I am running Mozilla Firefox on two laptops each of which is running Ubuntu Linux 22.04 LTS. In both cases Firefox is installed by the Debian/Ubuntu 'snap' program.

On the first of these two machines -- the only less frequently used or updated -- "About Mozilla Firefox" shows that I am running:

Firefox Browser 118.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002-1.0

On this machine I see this on the command-line:

Calling: '$ ls -ltr /snap/slack' shows that the current 'snap' is 113, created Nov 1. The date on the symlink between '/snap/slack/current/ and '113' is Nov 9, suggesting that I was prompted to run 'snap' and upgrade Firefox on Nov 9.

On this first machine, Firefox is performing as intended.

On the second machine, however, a more recent version of Firefox is blurring photos on at least one important website. (As far as I can tell, all other rendering of web pages is satisfactory.) The information on the second machine is:

Firefox Browser 120.0 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002-1.0

From this machine's command-line:

$ ls -ltr /snap/firefox total 0 drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 201 Nov 6 18:34 3358 drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 201 Nov 16 17:34 3416 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Nov 23 21:37 current -> 3416

This suggests that Ubuntu build build 3416 on Nov 16 and that I was prompted to install it on Nov 23. That's 2 days before I am writing this bug report, and that duration is roughly the duration in which I have observed this blurring problem.

The problem occurs at this website:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/

On this page, the photos are all in sharp focus and everything else is being rendered as expected. See: Screenshot from 2023-11-25 17-02-46.png

However, if I right-click on any URL or photo on the home page to take me to the page for a specific article, I get a blurred photo. Example:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2023/11/25/zoom-fatigue-brain-heart-effects/

Note how blurry this photo is. See: Screenshot from 2023-11-25 17-03-39.png

This blurriness does *not* happen with the older version of Firefox on my first machine. My inference is that there was some change between 118.0.2 and 120.0 that is failing to correctly process data coming from this website. Suggestions?

From the main opening screen on the right hand side ( Pic1 ) click on the three horizontal lines Tab. Go down to "Bookmarks" listing (Pic2) Click on " Bookmarks " to open and it gives you Pic3.

At the bottom of Pic3 is " Recent Bookmarks " and it lists ALL the previous bookmarks that have been opened.

Question - I do not want that list displayed, How / Where do you disable it in Firefox ?

Other people who have posted this question have had individuals just saying " Right click " on the bookmark and delete. That not only deletes it from the recent bookmarks list BUT also from the Actual Bookmarks!

So.... not a good idea.

I have spent over an hour searching the internet and the Firefox settings trying to figure it out.

Please help. Many thanks David
