In Firefox, I click on settings/General settings and I see the Default Browser box. It is checked , HOWEVER the whole area is slightly blurred and I cannot uncheck the box. Not that I want to, but the system has taken over and will not allow me to uncheck it. At the same time this happened, Microsoft EDGE is starting to come up at various places when another app launches my web browser. Hewlett Packard is a good example. So, I tried to completely uninstall edge, with no luck. THAT uninstall box is also slightly blurred or faded, same as the Firefox default browser is. It is like Windows 10 is trying to take over my system completely. I hope you have had experience with this since they are now messing with your controls and your settings! Please help.

Firefox Windows Browser 94.0.1 will not work properly with Ebay Selling Tools. Particular problem is that when I try to do anything with a Listing Template to sell an item on Ebay, when I save the item, the page just spins. (attached). Microsoft Edge works fine. Lot's of suggestions to disable enhanced tracking protection, but that does not make any difference.

I would like to do an update of Firefox Browser. I've been unable to log in to websites, such as my bank, for which I have been able to access. Strange but I could log in, then for about a week I couldn't log in to bank site via my Icon shortcut. Then it began working again under the original icon. I was forced to use google during this time, which has worked. I prefer Firefox, because of more privacy. Again today, I was unable to access aaa.com, I was able to sign on via my iphone 8. Then I tried Google sign on, again it worked. This problem is intermittent. I thought I'd make sure Firefox Browser was updated. I have windows 7 on this computer. The browser update seemed to start then just hang.

Dropdowns on Google not working

Just as was reported https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1313461 here, when I went to Google today, none of the famous "People also ask" dropdowns would work. Neither would any of Google's custom javascript widglets (I made that term up. They are likely Angular apps). This behavior also happened with some of the controls on my online bank's pages. This behavior is not present in Edge.

This is a new computer to me, and once recently, I lost control of some of Firefox's own menu items (I could scroll to items on the 3-bar menu, but not click some of them). Don't know if the two problems are related. The only thing that fixed that issue was to re-install Firefox.

I'm currently on Win 10, FF 94.0 (64 bit). I have tried all the standard advice: clearing cookies and cache, starting in troubleshooting mode, refreshing Firefox, and fiddling with performance settings (am I right that turning on and off hardware acceleration is no longer an option?).

Since I did try troubleshooting mode, I don't think this is caused by an extension, but who knows...is it possible for an extension to break FF, then have the broken behavior continue even after refresh? I'd really like to figure this out so I don't have to re-install the program every time this occurs.

Thanks for any help! -Josh

Hello.

I have been using firefox for a quite while now, I have LOTS of critical data linked to my firefox account (all the passwords, important bookmarks for work, etc)

I completely formatted and reinstalled windows on my pc because it had software issues that made it impossible for me to use my pc, after that I installed firefox , but forgot password for my firefox account, so I reset it with my mail, but now I can not sync to my very important older data that I desperately need.

Is there any way I can recover my data? Please, it is very important for me.

you can check that all the activities happened from same IP address, and that I searched for "windows 7 iso file" using duckduckgo right before I requested password reset


thank you in advance.

Hello! I have a big problem with fonts used on sites. As you can see in attached photo. The problem persists even after I reinstall the browser.

The problem does not exists in other browsers.

What can I do? I like Firefox very much, but because of this issue I am forced to use another browser.

Waiting for your solution! Thanks!

This doesn't happen in another browser (Edge, Chrome) only Firefox, my preferred browser. I've cleared the cache, rebooted, checked for updates etc. This happens on desktop and 2 laptops so far.

Hi, I just downloaded Firefox to my Mac. Everything is updated. The browser works like this:

I type in a URL.

First, a full-screen pop-up window that asks me to install an Add-on. (I read the Info - looks like an advertisement? - What is this? - Is this Normal? -Is this going to happen all the time?

Next, a series of "redirect" URLs flash across the search line...

Next, I end up at some completely random site.

So, my basic question as a new-to-Firefox user is, as politely as possible, WTF???

My first experience of Firefox...Do I feel safe? NO. I looked at the Help/FAQ section and, apparently Firefox Support hasn't encountered this issue?

I've been forced to jump into forum discussions to make it work. SUCKS. So, is it malware that was downloaded with Firefox? I don't know. Should I toggle something in about:config to "true" or to "false"? I don't know.

If this "redirect" feature is just part of Firefox, PLEASE just tell me. I'll use a different browser.

Today when I opened Firefox in Private Window I was greeted with some kind of pop up type feature in the middle of my private page about changing the color of Firefox. I have never seen this before so I closed the window and it made me think that I had malware which I promptly closed Firefox and ran Norton and Malware Bytes which were neg. I opened Firefox again not using Private Window and it opened to Firefox default page instead of the homepage I had designated as being Bing. So I had to now go into settings and reset my home page which is stable. What is going on with Firefox? Will we be seeing these option windows appear when we open Firefox like to change Firefox colors or something else? Is there a purpose of changing my homepage back to default Firefox? What other things have been messed with that we do not know about.
