Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/. (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ missing).

I have already set "security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy" to false I have already opened "http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/" in another tab, but Firefox did not ask me to add a certificate.

This may be helpful, a warning that appeared before the one above: "Loading mixed (insecure) display content “http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/” on a secure page"

My laptop crashed hard a day or two ago. I lost everything and booted back to factory setting. It's Windows 10 os. When I signed in to Firefox, I received my sign-in email, so my account seems to be fine, but the bookmarks, add-ons and passwords aren't appearing on my latest install. Please advise.

FF 60.0.1 (64-bit) on linux Mint using English EU formatting instead of English US

Since FF updated to 60.0.1 (64bit) on linux Mint, the date formatting on some sites has changed from English US (mm/dd/yy) to English Europe (dd/mm/yy). The FF language preference is set to (1) English [en] and (2) English/united States [en-us] (I tried it with the order reversed as well). Going to the same sites on the same machine with Chrome displays US date format. Any ideas?

Blocking http://searchguide.windstream.net which automatically fills url box with an unsolicited search result and displays: 414 Request-URI Too Large

Whenever a mistake is made in typing a url, http://searchguide.windstream.net automatically appears to try and search an alternate result, but instead fills the URL box with pages of jibberish that takes minutes to remove or delete, and then apparently times out and flags its own unsolicited efforts:

414 Request-URI Too Large

Simply X-ing out the tab and starting over is an option, but still a nuisance.

Blocking this particular web site, http://searchguide.windstream.net, would probably resolve the issue without blocking other services provided by Windstream.

Here is an example: If "democracynow.com" is entered instead of "democracynow.org" a huge amount of garbage is thrown into the url window by this unsolicited "searchguide" website and the following error message is presented by this unauthorized search effort: "414 Request-URI Too Large"

Other websites redirect appropriately, like "http://www.vitaletherapeutics.com" redirects without to "http://www.vitaletherapeutics.org" without automatically invoking http://searchguide.windstream.net and without creating the error message: "414 Request-URI Too Large"

If this is a form of web censorship and denial of access, I want to know more about it and help other web sites to take action to help ensure 1st Amendment inspired net neutrality, and to curb censorship.

Partial URL box/window content after unsolicited "searchguide" activity:

Backing up to a json or html file will save all my bookmarks except for the mobile ones I sync between my laptop and my phone. The jsonlz4 file in my profile folder also does not save mobile bookmarks. Sync by itself is usually enough to preserve all my bookmarks, but I made the mistake of installing FF ESR alongside regular FF which screwed everything up; it would have been nice to have had my complete bookmarks backed up at that point, so I could have restored all of them.

Btw, my laptop browser is spoofed: I'm using FF 60.0.1 on Linux Mint; I'm syncing my laptop with my android phone (FF 60.0.1 also).

The main reason I still use Chrome is to keep my laptop fan from turning on when I watch YouTube videos. This then leads me to use Chrome for other reasons as well. I would prefer to use Firefox, but I don't like it when my fan turns on. My Firefox is up to date according to me preferences page.

I have tried unchecking "Use hardware acceleration when possible" and restarting Firefox, but the fan still comes on.

What's the solution?

I am unable to login to Firefox sync on my Galaxy S8 phone, AT&T tablet, or ether of my two PC. I know what the password should be but it just will not work. I have tried to use the password reset but I have never receive any emails in my Yahoo account. I have checked this on all of my four devices. I have checked the spam, trash, all of my folders that my filter feed. I have tried to setup a new sync account with my email address to make sure an account still exists and the system tells me that that email address is already in use. I thought it might be because my Ubuntu 16.04 system stopped allowing me to update anything so I reformatted my drive and installed Lubuntu 18.04 I have read as many postings as I can find to resolve this to no avail. How can I get help to fix this?

Since the new update firefox 60, it hangs after a few moments or pages. We have to perform a forced stop to restart firefox. We have the problem on the 2 imac, and the 2 macbook pro. Software is up to date . We send a crash report every time. We never had any problems with previous versions.

First of all, I'm using Mac. And so, if my firefox is not responding or still lagging, I always force quit it right away. However last night it didn't work like that. My firefox was usually fine after I forced quit it and started it again, but yesterday it crashed from when it was starting.

I'm flustered and try to open it a few more times, but the result was still the same, crash and crash again. Firefox tried to give me options by using the safe mode. I thought it could work if I went with the safe mode, but unfortunately even in safe mode, my firefox still crashed.

And just like that I also don't have a choice to access the troubleshooting menu in firefox because it crashed before I could go there. That's why I'm here to request help.

This is the report ID I just submitted a few minutes before posting this. bp-7dbf5090-1315-48b5-af5f-fe7d20180523

If you need details of the report just ask me. I've already copied that from the crash reporter. Thank you!

Firefox is my default browser and I cannot download any attachments in my Yahoo email. I tries to sign into my Firefox account but it would not accept my password. I tried 3 times to do a password reset but I never received a reply to my email address. My email address is: ************@yahoo.co.uk. I had followed the Firefox help suggestions to fix my problem of being unable to open attachments of any format in my yahoo mail and cleared all of the Firefox Cache and Cookies. A blue folder appeared on my MacBook Pro laptop called "Old Firefox Data". Since this did not fix my inability to open any attachments in my Yahoo Mail (New Mail and not Classic or Yahoo Pro), I need help on what I should do. How do I return to my Old Firefox Data and Settings, fix my problem of being unable to open up attachments in my Yahoo Email and fix the problem of Firefox not accepting my account password or not sending me a link to do this? I do not know how to proceed and it appears that many of my settings are changed or gone. Even my default opening page of: https://uk.yahoo.com/ has gone. What do I do to resolve all of these issues. Many thanks, drrjm.

I have read and applied all the fixes from previous responses to this problem and nothing works. Scrolling through Facebook is a nightmare with the page re-loading every 10 seconds, and creating a visual disturbance on screen. Please advise a permanent fix. Thanks
