Hi,

I'm getting errors when trying to make online card payments with Firefox. Things like, Invalid card number, not being able to type number in box provided, (No Cursor). It works ok on some sites but not others. However, if I switch to the Edge browser all transactions work perfectly. This has been happening for some time (Windows 11). I'm thinking this could be a bug but not sure.

Almost every time I open Firefox it has changed my screen look, my preferences and my security settings. I'm lucky if my restoring lasts 2 days. For example; this morning I opened Firefox and all appeared to be OK. This is afternoon and Firefox has come up with a dark screen, changed preferences and altered my security settings. I've raised this subject before and I'm really tired of doing this. I favour Firefox because I like the relative independence of it, whereas MS and others seem to pry on everything one does. I also think MS is deceitful in that I cannot get back my MS Office (that I paid for) after a rebuild.

my hardware is very outdated already and i wanna try if my firefox runs better without any hardware acceleration like running fully on software.

i don't think that just simply disabling the hardware acceleration in the settings disables the entire hardware acceleration because there are way more about:config preferences which are related to hardware acceleration.

Have noticed that some web pages, where I am member, I can't activate the log in button any longer. I press the button but for some reason I dont get the pop up window were I am able to fill in my name and password anylonger. Same, when I am logged on to my bank and want to look att documents on the web page I can not activate these by clicking on them. I can click as much as I want but the documents won't open. First time I noticed this was in the summer when I couldn't open documents in my bank and now I can not even log on to a sertain page were I am member cause I can't activate the log on button by clicking it. Don't even know where to start looking cause this have happened from an update so it is nothing I have deliberately changed in my Firefox. I have the latest update.

Dear Community,

I am trying to download a large file. Am on a course, and the main tutor has given the group a file to download. Have tried downloading this 5 times, but get little luck. The file that I would want to download is 8.5GB, and the furthest I get is about 4GB.

I have 2 questions about this.

1) I seem to have a very 'in and out internet connection. It seems to go down at times for no reason, cutting off the download. Is there anything I could do about this? How could I troubleshoot this, please? 2) Does anybody know of any special tools that I can use to download in a more efficient manner, please? Perhaps an extension for Firefox might be able to do this, perhaps? Kind Regards to Anyone Answering this Query, Marek

Hi,


i want to autoupdate firefox silently on a bunch of servers. When the mentioned settings are in place i'm still promted to update firefox when opening it. This isn't possible for the users as this is something a systemengineer should do. Is there anything i'm missing for a silent autoupdate? There is no JSON file in place. these settings have been distributed by a GPO.


Kind regards,

Remco

Lately, every time I turn on my computer, Google comes up as my browser. I believe that Avast, for which I have a paid subscription, is responsible for this hijacking. I have never used Google as a browser, nor do I wish to. I have to constantly maneuver to use Firefox. I am not omputer savy, so I need help.

1. How can I prevent this? 2. Is there a Federal Agency to complain to? 3. Is Firefox aware of this?

Thank you, Nick M.

The title pretty much says it. On some phpBB forum I am member of, since yesterday, I can't write long messages and see what I'm writing.

When my texte is bigger than the default frame, the scrollbar jumps at the top of the post while i'm still writing. This doesn't happen with other browers on same webpage.

Possibility : the deepl addon i just installed  ?

Any idea ?

(sorry if i'm not clear enough, english is not my first language)
