Locking this thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1398430]
When loading a page from a domain I haven't recently visited, it will almost always return the "Server Not Found - Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site," error message. If I reload the page, however, it will load. Sometimes I have to reload 2-6 times before it works, but it always eventually succeeds. When it does work, it often times fails to load certain elements like fonts, images, embedded videos, and occasionally whole stylesheets--things that often require calls to third party domain. Again, reloading the page (sometimes multiple times) will cause the page to load properly.

I have already tried:

  • Different browsers on same computer (issue does not occur)
  • Firefox on different computers with different OS on same network (issue does not occur)
  • Cleared cache (issue persists)
  • Troubleshooting/safe mode (issue persists)
  • Deleted prefs file (issue persists)
  • Disabled DNS prefetching (issue persists)

If I use my touch monitor when a video player is full screen, the full screen Firefox window turns grey and becomes unresponsive to mouse and touch input. I can exit full screen with Esc or F but the problem persists in full screen mode until I restart Firefox. Picture attached is my monitor when Firefox is in full screen mode.

Hi. I am trying to reach a site that I have in the past found a good reference site (if you like reptiles), Ian's Vivarium. I am in up-to-date Firefox for Win10, I have refreshed Firefox to no effect. Error message on the website is: "You are running an unsupported PHP version. Please upgrade to PHP 7.1.3 or higher before trying to install or update to phpBB 3.3" at the top of a wholly blank page.

I get the same error when attempting Chrome and Edge (which crawled back onto my PC uninvited)... maybe a website issue?

Help?

While not totally computer illiterate, I'm pretty close....

Thanks in advance?

I tried 3 times to download a software upgrade from a German Vendor. The download failed several times so I contacted the vendor's support and they said try another browser. I downloaded the upgrade with MS Edge but I still strongly prefer Firefox for browsing. I could not find any answers that fit this issue in your help. I have no trouble with other downloads or previous downloads from Celemony. The zip file was about 70 meg, I think I've downloaded bigger files before. No big rush on this but I am curious as to what went wrong.

Somehow I managed to lose all of my windows, search history, addins, etc. It would appear that a new profile was created. I tried about:profiles and selecting the old profile (1.4GB) but while FIrefox starts, the places.sqlite file is now place.sqlite.corrupt. I followed the Mozilla instructions to try to fix the sqlite file but that did not help. I restored the full Firefox Application Support folder from Time Machine but that also starts with a fresh profile and selecting the old one gets me to a corrupt places.sqlite file. Given that I have TIme Machine backups, Is there no way to get back to a previous state with my windows, history, addins, etc. I am faced with losing a lot of work if I can't get back to where I was at least since a recent backup.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

Choppy video when playing full-screen

I recently switched to Linux from Windows on my older laptop, and have noticed that videos played in Firefox are very choppy with a poor framerate when in full-screen. (Audio is fine.) It becomes smooth again when I remove full-screen mode. I was using this same laptop previously with an older version of FF (on Windows) and had no problems.

I tried other browsers and the stutter/choppiness is not present. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Firefox safe-mode did not solve the problem.

OS: Linux - Zorin OS 15.3 Lite Firefox: 85.0.1 (32-bit)

Thanks, Dave

It's a bit galling, that I'm having to do this with Chrome, but Firefox (85.0.2 (64-bit)) has simply become useless. I even tried a fresh install of the beta version, to no avail.

The only page that displays, is the about:support troubleshooting page.

I've tried refreshing Firefox, restarting with add-ons disabled, uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times, and tens of other things that I've forgotten about by now. If anyone has any idea how to fix it I'd really appreciate it, even if it doesn't end up working.

I am having issues with Firefox browser on my university website. When I do a search in the ebsco library and I try to advance to the second page of the results nothing happens. When I try to modify the search terms it returns me to the original search terms. Also, in the classroom portal called Brightspace I am unable to see embedded video clips.

These issues never occurred in the past versions. These issues do not occur when I use Chrome.

Hi there. I have a feature that I would like to see on Firefox (Pinch zoom on touch displays in the Firefox PDF reader).

So what I did I searched for the best possible way to submit my feedback. I belive to have found it under Help -> Submit feedback. But upon clicking this button, I get immediately redirected to this page:

https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page

which undoubtly seems like a redirect error.

Tried this Link on my Firefox (with addons), Firefox private and Edge, always the same result.

Happy to hear some suggestions!

Hello everyone. I created this account just to ask about this issue. About a week ago, Firefox stopped working. Completely. All pages would come up blank, even my own add-ons and bookmarks. The settings page was blank as well. I tried refreshing Firefox to no avail. I uninstalled and reinstalled, nothing. I even booted it in Safe Mode, and webpages wouldn't load. What is going on? Help would be greatly appreciated, but keep in mind I have little technical knowledge.

I attached a picture of me trying to load YouTube in Safe Mode.
