Hello Can you check why Firefox 92.01 (64bit) running under macOS Big Sur 11.6 is unable to make me watch online movies/series on

https://www.tv5mondeplus.com/

Olders versions was not able to work properly either on this website. Firefox open it and let me visit the site normally but as soon as I click on a program to look at, looks like the screen and connection freeze... Little Snitch Traffic monitor indicates that there is no more data exchange but connection still active.

Firefox asks for my Primary Password on every page of Firefox I open whether I want to use a password or not. I have to click to remove the box and I lose control of the page because the page will move opposite of the direction my cursor moves. Can I open the "Primary Password" box whenever I want to use it instead having to deal with it every time I open a Firefox webpage?

This can be very frustrating.

I have a new doctor with a portal I've not used before. When I send a message, it gets garbled. Example: "I’m glad I pursued an elaboration of this report. It was mildly comforting as it says “has low malignant probability but does require follow-up." I don’t see a way to do an attachment so I’ll cut and paste." The part I cut and pasted was fine. I am on Firefox 92.0.1 and a Mac Laptop. The previous version of Firefox did this too. In this message, it appears not to like apostrophes or quotation marks specifically. My doctor doesn't appreciate trying to decipher them and I am not happy that he can't read them without a problem since we are talking about a potentially serious problem causing me a lot of anxiety. What is the solution? And when will Firefox fix it so I don't have to each time? Thanks!

I've seen other people round the net with the same problem I had. no spell check. it took way too much searching to find out why and how to fix it. even more confusing is on your languages page, it has language pack and dictionary together and no pointer that the language pack will not fix the spellchecker. why don't you just have dictionaries on one page? why don't you link to the dictionaries page from the settings menu where it says "check spelling as you type". this whole thing is so darn obtuse and there is really no reason for it to be. nobody should have to go through this much frustration just to get the darn spellchecker to work.

My old hard drive refused to boot.

I got a new one, formatted it, and copied everything I "thought" I needed from the old one...nothing has been touched, it's all still there, in the case but not plugged in. I did not move any OS files, nor any files from progams folders.

I fresh-installed firefox on my new hard drive and quickly reconstructed my pwd protected accounts from memory.

I'm looking for help here, not a lecture on these newer approaches using master passwords. Gotta live my life my way, eh?

Anyway, now it's year end and I'm having password woes with a few accounts. As they are fiscal, they tend to lock out after 2-3 tries -- sometimes I'm told how many several days, I tend to default and try again after 3. I'm running out of time.

If I fire up the old hard drive and grab those two files, putting them in a dedicated subdirectory, can I retrieve those passwords?

Can you confirm the precise files names, and the most likely subdirectories I will find them in.

Yup, I'm that much of a dinosaur. You may have folders, but I have subdirs.

Cheers and thanks in advance for an answer that works. Or will firefox try to show me the passwords from the current files, not the old ones.

Firefox won't load sites after change in redirection (loads fine in other browsers)

Hi--

I recently changed redirection for several of my domains (e.g. 695minnesota.com and dopesession.com)--previously, the redirection was handled by my DNS provider (DNS Made Easy), but I recently changed it to happen at the registrar level (Namesilo). It's been 72 hours since the change, but FF will not load the sites at all. Here's what I've done:

  • Flushed local DNS cache (in windows, ipconfig/flushdns).
  • Cleared browser cache
  • requested Cloudflare (what my routers and PCs use for DNS) to purge the cache for these 2 sites
  • set proxy to "none" in FF settings
  • disabled DNS over HTTPS

Using IE and Edge, the sites redirect to the correct sites just fine. But FF refuses to load anything at all--I've tried various computers (and my iphone running FF) on various networks, no luck. Using the network inspector, I sometimes get a ns_binding_aborted error (on Windows). FF on iOS gives me a request timed out (NSURLErrorDomain).

I'm running FF 92.0 x64 on Win 10 x64.

Any ideas what is going on here?

Thanks! Sandheep

When clicking on the three horizontal lines in the right hand corner, to see the next pane on bookmarks, history, etc,. I have to left click instead of just hovering and have the appropriate pane open to the left as works with Chrome. Is there a way I can get the next pane to open automatically without clicking?

Yesterday I cleared my Firefox History including cookies and cache. Immediately could no longer Login to my live.com Hotmail account. Attempted multiple reset of live.com Hotmail PW and locked out. Of note: Firefox crashed when I cleared Firefox history so I had to force quit in Mac OS. More than coincidence I have this issue I believe. Help, thoughts? Thank you !
