Hello

After the latest Firefox update, 101.0 (64-Bit) for Windows, the text of our website can't be read anymore because it suddenly appears way too bright.

It worked since years before and still works with other browsers.

Is this a know bug with version 101 and might be fixed? Or is there any other problem?

The website is: link text

Thanks a lot, if someone can help!

Kind regards,

Wolfgang

If I key a search term into the browser bar and hit enter it begins searching. About 95% of the time nothing happens. No message. I just notice the 'x' to stop the search is gone, and a 'retry' circle replaces it.

This has been going on for months. I have used firefox for years. I have renewed it, replaced it, removed all addons, accepted updates usually each day. stopped accepting updates. Refreshing, renewing, seems to help for a couple minutes. Deleting all history helped...maybe. I am on satellite internet. Also use chrome. Most of the time now, After I key a query in firefox, I switch to chrome and do the same query while waiting. Chrome works. Just doesn't have all my passwords and sites yet.

I am on windows 7 home premium. I have an AMD FX 6100 6-core CPU running at 3.3 Ghz. I have 8 gigs of RAM. I am not overclocking. I use Avast antivirus. A few months ago I bought the avast cleanup tool which was a massive mistake, I had already done all the things it wanted to try, it is just a nuisance. In settings, I have a message that says firefox is managed by my organization. I wish I could get rid of that. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks in advance.

Hi I have been experiencing rejection of access to many legitimate Web Sites. I have attached the error I get even when trying to get to a mozilla web page. This is getting both frustrating and limiting in my desire to support, which I do, Mozilla's strategy of privacy and freedom.

I am using Fedora Linux Version 34 and Firefox Version 100.0.2 64 Bit. I did not experience these problems months ago. I have kept everything up to date as far as I can with my OS limits, if any.

I want to examine what is going on and would like to know where to look. Any help would be appreciated ... Robert

Hi,

I have a web application which runs perfectly on firefox versions below 103. Meanwhile, I had to change my laptop and I installed latest firefox version on my new laptop. I have a login page in my web application which isn't working in the latest firefox version. But, the application works perfectly even now in the older versions below 103. What might be the reason?

Thanks in advance

Using Firefox today I tried to search for various things using https://oceanhero.today/search.. I got this error message:

"Sorry, there was an error when rendering your search. We were notified and will try to resolve this issue as soon as possible."

But the search engine - which I've been using on Firefox for a long time without any problems - works fine on Bing.

Is there a remedy? Many thanks for any advice.

For the last few weeks ive been having difficulties with youtube, at first it was only the comment section that would load forever without stopping, but lately when ive decided to sit down andtry and solve this, i noticed that i cant access my account nor any notifications either. And even if i type in my name and go into my account manually, there are no links nor any menues available, everything is black except the videos.

I cant even sort the videos to the "latest upload" without the page start loading forever without stopping. I can access everything with other browsers though, OperaGX, but thats not my main browser, so i dont want to switch over to Opera whenever i want to use youtube.

Does anyone else have the same problem? And what do i need to do to fix this? (I cant even find a way to contact the support to get help nowadays for some reason..)

I subscribe to The Times (UK) and use many of their different portals. I am, however, experiencing a really odd problem. For the last three Mondays in a row when I hover over a link it shows one destination which is now three weeks out of date and downloads same when clicked. When I Inspect(Q) the relevant bit of script it shows the correct page for the current week. All other links from the current edition work as expected. The link works correctly on other days of the week. The IT support at The Times have no idea why this is happening and have simply asked me to do stupid things like clearing all cache and cookies relevant to their site. this has no effect whatsoever!

How can this happen and have you any help on the subject?

Hi there, I saw a similar problem and tried everything there (Cache/Cookies etc.) but I still have this problem:

When I access firstdirect.com I get the page loaded but none of the buttons work? All the headings and the Online Banking link are dead.

I tried Troubleshooting mode and lo and behold, it worked, and now it's OK, but.... I use In Private browsing for Finance stuff and this is where I can't get it to work???

Once I got the login page (in normal browsing) I copied the URL, pasted it into the Private tab and it worked perfectly, so t looks like the problem is somewhere in the www.firstdirect.com welcome page?

Tried Edge and that worked too and First Direct are unaware of any login problems, so any ideas please?

I'm baffled! Thanks all, Chris.

Dropdown lists are not displaying their contents when selected on certain websites, including eBay.

I have tried using Troubleshoot Mode and the dropdowns are still not displaying.

Here's an example where I am seeing this behaviour: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255536264049?var=555488018135

When I select the Resistance Level dropdown, nothing happens. It's the same for any listing that has a dropdown.

This issue occurs in both RPM and Flatpak instances of Firefox.

I have tried the same page in Chromium browser on the same computer and the dropdown functions correctly in that browser.

I have also noted the same behaviour on other websites, such as train booking sites, but I don't have any other examples to share at the moment. It isn't an isolated eBay issue anyway.

Any ideas? Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

FFox 112.0.2 (64-bit) running in Linux Mint 20.3 Una.

1, Strange formatting of <B> inside <PRE>. When using the default monospace font inside a <PRE> element, adding <B> elements disrupts character spacing. A screen shot is attached. "wheat" & "purple" are the colors. They are set in a CSS file. Here is the source HTML:

<PRE class="white">
// (1/240) sec-per-char +-all-strides-------------------------->
<B class="wheat">24pps</B>                // <B class="purple">(Aa______)(Bb______)(Cc______)(Dd______)</B> source pps
<B class="wheat">_hpps(Aa..Dd)</B>        // <B class="purple">(A_______)(B_______)(C_______)(D_______)</B> source top hpps
                     // <B class="purple">(a_______)(b_______)(c_______)(d_______)</B>        bottom hpps
<B class="wheat">(AaBbBcCdDd)=60hpps</B>  // <B class="purple">(A_-20%)(B_________+60%)(C_-20%)(D_-20%)</B> target top hpps
                     // <B class="purple">(a_-20%)(b_-20%)(c_-20%)(d_________+60%)</B>        bottom hpps
<B class="wheat">]30'1.001htfps</B>       // <B class="purple">[A+a___][B+b___][B+c___][C+d___][D+d___]</B> target htfps
                     //                 ================         combed</PRE>

<This character spacing disruption is surely a bug.>

<2, Unexpected formatting of bogus <D> element.> elements to (bogus) <D> elements in the source HTML. The result? The colors were retained and the characters became aligned.>

<What do you think of 1 & 2? Can you test in other browsers -- I can't.>

I am pasting this video link first to show exactly is happening when I use Google Images Search results. https://youtu.be/HD-GPkORQPA

This happened suddenly. Everything was fine when I last used google image results, I was playing a game and when I alt+tabbed to search for something, this was happening. I have no idea what could have caused it since I didn't install any new extensions, CSS styles, programs in my PC nor any big changes that would give me an idea of where to start.

I already tried disabling all the extension and that didn't help at all. The only way I've managed to make this stop, was when I opened a private window. There the image search results were fine and I could zoom in, and out and no weird scrollbar issues were happening.

I went back to a normal window in Firefox, and noticed that if I log out from my Google account, this will also fix the issue. And when I logged back in, the issue was happening again.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen, and how I can fix it? Thank you!

The Washington Post website now loads in its mobile (rather than desktop/Windows) configuration. This didn't happen before the update to 103.0.1; it doesn't happen on my other computer, which is still running 103; and it doesn't happen on Chrome.

Until this is fixed, I'd like to roll back to 103, but I don't see how to do that. The "Install an older version" help page ([url]https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-firefox/url) offers only v. 102, and the long list of previous versions ([url]https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases//url) stops at v. 99.

Thanks!

I am using Firefox with the uBlock Origin and Cookie AutoDelete extensions enabled. When I try and load Gmail or any other Google site, I get a blank page and nothing loads at all. This only occurs when my VPN is on (I use Private Internet Access). However, even with the VPN on, Chrome will still load those sites. Disabling the VPN means that the sites load normally.

My guess is it might be some sort of privacy setting in Firefox, but I don't understand what it could be. The only thing that breaks/fixes the sites is connecting and disconnecting the VPN, irrespective of which country I try and connect from.

I tried to add a new credit card to my subscription account on the www.everydropwater.com website. My attempts failed twice for no apparent reason. I called their customer support at 1-800-442-9991 and described my problem. They asked me which browser I was using. I told them "Firefox". They said that's the problem, their credit card update function simply does not work under Firefox!

I was appalled that they know their site doesn't work under a popular browser, yet they don't seem to care or be interested in fixing their site!

Can you folks fix this problem? (I felt like a traitor when I downloaded and used Chrome to get around it.)

I'm using 64-bit Firefox 112.0.1 under Windows 10 version 22H2 on a Dell laptop.

Thanks!!
