Firefox, Captcha problems and live plugs

I use Firefox 79. I have removed all the extensions except my antivirus (Avast Ultimate) which includes a VPN but the VPN is currently turned off. I have Firefox 79 installed on two computers, one of which connects by CPL ("powerline adapters/homeplugs") and the other connects to the router by an ethernet cable. My Firefox settings are identical on both machines and I have no Captcha problems with the one using the ethernet cable. I also completely turned off my home network and reset it - fibre optic box, router, both computers, and unplugged the CPLs - and then restarted them from the optic box forwards one by one. It made no difference, the CPL problem still exists.

I sought help on the Microsoft Community Forum and sent the two blokes I was working with all the above info and they concluded that the problem wasn't with the CPLs which, incidentally are TP-LINK, model TL-PA7010P(KitFR) with the Version 3 software. All three lights on each of the CPLs are solid green. I have also informed TP-Link France of the problem and I'm waiting for their reply. Following advice from one of the blokes on the MS Forum, I ran a Speedtest.net on the CPL machine and the results were: downloading 91.99Mbps and uploading 87.47Mpbs and the Ping response was 20. (This is all nonsense to me but may help you.) Both people on the MS Forum concluded that the problem does not lie with the CPL.

I'm going to replace the CPLs with a 30m ethernet cable (less aesthetically pleasing and more encumbering) to see if that resolves the issue.

When I launch Firefox, the first click is ignored. So I must click it once again, it's a little frustrating...

I'm having this problem with Twitter, Gmail, and Google news, and I can open it in Facebook, StackOverFlow, and Tumblr with no problems.

This does not occur when opening in a private window or in windows opened using Ctrl-N. I checked in the "network" tab of the development tools and the transfer volume says "blocked".

Disabling Windows Security doesn't effect anything.(I don't install other security tools) What is the problem?

Hello everyone, So I have a problem when I create a folder in my bookmark bar. I create a folder by category (unnamed for aesthetics). Once I have classified my favorites in these different folders after reopening Firefox, all my favorites are in a single folder. I specify that all these favorites were mostly imported from Chrome but that the problem persists with favorites added from firefox

I used this app on Firefox which provides "aliases" for my credit card for online purchases. After an update, it was no longer available on Firefox; I now use Chrome for all purchases. Does anyone know what happened to Eno and if it will return to Firefox? I'm a user and not a technician so I'd appreciate non-technical language if possible. Thanks.

Hi not sure if this may have to do with Xsolla who apparently manages the reciept emails for robux but last month we started having problems paying for robux in firefox. The purchase page loaded the upper elements but the parts of the page where you put in the credit card info would not load in firefox. That part of the page showed only the background colour. So we had to switch to opera or edge in order to purchase the robux. This happened in firefox on both a mac os mojave and separtely on a windows 10 machine as well. Many thanks, Phil

[Edit: I accidentally clicked on the "this solved my problem" button in my first support email but it was the second reply by cor-el that came closer to solving it. Not sure how to change this]

In my main profile, restore session stopped working. The option is set, but it doesn't work. It worked for 3 years since I created this profile, but now it doesn't work.

Recently, this profile has been crashing regularly on quit. I quit (CRTL-Q) and the window does away, then 10 seconds later, I get a pop up message saying that firefox crashed.

Just a moment ago, I had a system crash and now this profile refuses to restore my session. When I started it, there was a new session and all the backup session files contain new sessions, not my tabs. Lost all tabs.

Anyone else seeing this?

I've read this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/push-notifications-firefox

It tells me how to disable new notification requests, however when I go to website, the icon still appears. The icon still wiggles. I want to remove this ENTIRELY. Under no circumstances do I ever want to know anything about any website with notifications. It should be 100% removed because it is trash feature from trash companies.

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.
