OS: Windows 10-64 Home or Windows 10-64 Pro Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.685) with all current updates Firefox: 84.0.2 (64-bit)


For about a week now a few websites are taking a long time to load on my 4 PCs (examples: ebay.com, walmart.com, pch.com). If I click the link on the search page it takes almost 30 sec to load, right click and open in a new tab same time, and open a new tab and type or paste address the same amount of time. Most other website open almost immediately.

The issue does not resolve in safe-mode or if I manually disable add-ons. I'm using the default theme.

All websites load without issue on Chrome and Edge.

It seems that my preferred width of the browser window on desktop is so narrow that some websites (not all!) seem to think I'm on a mobile device. And so they serve me the "mobile-friendly" version of the website instead of the standard desktop version. I can tell it's a "responsive design" thing because if I widen my browser window, the desktop-friendly version automatically appears.

Is there a way to disable this so that all websites are forced to always serve the desktop version of the website?

When posting or reblogging on Tumblr, I receive the following error message: "Error loading forms / Hmm. This doesn't seem to be working. Please try again?"

It's working normally on Safari on the same machine, so it seems to just be Firefox. I've tried disabling various plugins, but I can't tell what's up.

The "Inbox" page also has some of its functionality hidden. (The top right navigation has disappeared, and the buttons to answer "asks" have disappeared.)

Thanks so much, friends!

It seems like directly displaying markdown documents would be helpful and pretty easy to implement (especially now that CommonMark is being accepted as a standard). I see these bugs for it, but no real movement or priority. Is it on a roadmap anywhere? Anything a not-really-developer can do to help?

I am continuing to have issues going to this web site. www.goldtonemusicgroup.com/goldtone. Works great on chrome but firefox fails miserably. The page needs to be downsized and when you click on a link it may open it but it may be behind it but I am never able to get to it. I think possibly the last update something must have messed up. I used to be able to load it but not anymore. I have to use another browser to work with this web site. Other web sites seem to be ok. Thanks for any info.

I have been invited to renew the Norton protection on my desktop computer in 5 days. The increase in the cost is approximately 20% on last year's subscription with the advice that it will treble at the following renewal. This has made me wonder whether, or to what degree, the protection provided by Norton Lifelock may be unnecessary due to my using Firefox for my browsing.

I have Ublock, Enhancer For Youtube, Facebook Container & Ghoshtery icons on my toolbar.

I am not very computer literate, so if anyone is able to suggest an alternative way of protecting my computer, please take this into consideration.

I accept that due to my limited knowledge of computers some people may on balance think that it is best that I renew with Norton rather than risk compromising my computer security due to my lack of computer expertise - and if that is what people think it would still be good to receive the reassurance that I am probably already using the best product for me.

Last year I let the subsription lapse rather than pay at the invited amount that I think was over £60. A few days later I received another email inviting me to subscribe at circa £20.

Thank you.

Hello, I have a problem with the screen share pop up that appears when a website tries to access the screen. When I try to share the entire screen on Google Meet, as soon as I click Share screen > Full screen, the button grays out and nothing is shared. The pop up that allows you to select the screen to share never opens.

The only way to reset Meet's "Share screen" button is by exiting and joining the Google Meet room again. I've checked that meet.google.com's screen permission is set to "Always ask" and not "Blocked". How can I fix this problem?

youtube presents errors during loading, leaving the left side panel and the youtube login menu empty, strangely when opening firefox for the first time after turning on the computer it seems to load normally but when browsing or updating the problem is present.

I don't use third-party antivirus, only the one that comes in windows 10. I suspect the firewall and windows defender itself.

I've been like this for two months. I tried updating windows 10, no changes. update firefox, no changes. reset firefox, no changes. disable firefox add-ons, no changes. reinstall firefox, no changes. private window, unchanged.

any ideas?

Hi,

I want to save a website that featured our dog on a page. The website is a help-site for veterinary expense that will probably close the page featuring our animal, as our pet didn't make it. If it matters, the website is Waggle.com.

I used File > Save Page As to open the dialog box with the option to save to the desktop. I note it did so with the extension .html. At the bottom of the dialog box was Format, I choose the default save as Website complete. I tried to open it and saw a instant of the webpage picture. On the bottom left-hand corner several pieces of dialog were running in rapid succession, one of them contained the words "Hand shake", but most were probably computerize gibberish, at least to me. The bottom left hand corner went blank and the entire tab was left blank--empty, the brief picture disappeared. Google didn't offer any help with this.

Can I save this page to view as a memory, or is this essentially gone to a novice like me?

Firefox 84.0.1, OS X 10.13.6, 2009 iMac desktop.

Thanks,

John Roehling

Hello,

After the latest updates, whenever I attempt to navigate to someone's instagram account from a hyperlink or even typing it directly into the browser bar, I get the picture below 9 out of 10 times. I imagine it has something to do with cookies and how Firefox has changed their default settings or something, but I'd rather not have to delete my browing history, data and specific Instagram cookies every time I want to search instagram pages. Is this happening to anyone else?
