Howdy. Some pages won't open, although the URL is correct. Copying that URL will usually open in Edge. Also many pictures, and/or ads won't show, just the revolving circle, or broken picture icon, but again some wil show in the Edge. But I prefer to use FF if possible. I have tried disabling things like Duck Duck Go and FF security etc, etc, but maybe there is something I'm not aware of. At least one place (AlSears) said their pic is PDF, but other PDFs open. The following URL is Auckland Motorway cameras, and many of those do not open, but show the broken pic icon, but everything is fine in The Edge. https://www.aucklandmotorways.co.nz/

The following URL, the Upgrade link just has the circle running. https://store.alsearsmd.com/?s=LIFETIME#

New Zealand official Met Service weather, if I change from 7 Days to 48 hours, or vice versa, FF completely seizes up and I have to End Task in Task Manager. https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/locations/auckland

I'm not aware of any AdBlockers Plugins and extensions shown below.

Any thoughts, anyone?

I'm having problems with 2 websites. One is www.realestate.com.au - I can't search this site at all (I've previously used it thousands of times). The second one is www.gumtree.com.au I've posted items for sale on this site, it will allow me to log into my account but repeatedly boots me off. I've contacted them and they say to delete my browsing history (done) and upgrade my browser (it already is the latest version). I've no idea what to do next. I have no trouble with other websites (to date!).

I saw a post on this where they were instructed to go to safe mode and Viola! it works. That is fine, but it does not fix the problem.

My Firefox browser opens all links except what appears to be links from ads or forwarding links from a site to where something is being sold.

Whenever I click on one of these I get the, "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." They open fine on Edge. Is there a setting on Firefox that is blocking these?

Hi everybody! Recently I've been signing in an amazon prime account which gives me access to many service. One of them is Prime Video. I've never been able to use Prime with Firefox. It let's me navigate inside the website but when it's time to stream the movie/series/stuff that I choose, it tells me that I can't because I need to get the latest version of Firefox. Well... It's nothing special in this case, since it's just entertainment. But very recently (less than a week) I have the same problem with whatsapp web. And this is quite annoying since I use it for work and to have another browser open makes me slow down on my job. Can you tell me if there's a solution to this? My version of Mozilla Firefox is 83.0 (64 bit) and it says it's the latest. No need to update. Sorry, the pictures are in italian (I'm from Italy). Let me know if you need any help with translation. Thank you in advance!

How can I make Firefox my default browse. I've tried various methods, but the next time I click on Firefox I get the message that "FF is not your default browser." One problem may be that before I close Settings, I don't find any "Save" button to preserve my choices.

I mainly use Firefox. I worked offline on a couple of mails on yahoo webmail, intending to send them in the morning. On waking up, I went online to send wanted to send them, but they could not. Needless to say, the texts of those mails have been lost and were not saved as drafts. All my firefox pages, old and new, now open as bare pages, without links, formatting, pics or functionalities. I am not even able to upload here an image of my screen on a typical page. My email is [email]@yahoo.com.

I have the DuckDuckGo search engine as the only search engine in my list of search engines. There is a very annoying issue with the way Firefox handles searches.

When I enter text into the DuckDuckGo search box two things can happen after hitting Enter to perform the search. If the cursor was positioned just below the search box where Change Search Settings button is located, after hitting Enter the the search defaults to the Options/Search page. This requires reloading my home page retyping my search query and ensure that the cursor isn't located over the Change Search Settings. Since the search engine textbox is located high up on the page instead of in the middle my cursor frequently ends up positioned over the Change Search Settings button. Since I am only using one search engine, it would be great if the Change Search Settings button could be disabled. Can This be done? I haven't been able to disable it with Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit).

Hi, I have used Firefox on my desktop pc using Windows o/s many years with minimal problem. Last few weeks Firefox operating strangely. Starts off fine then after opening a few tabs will not open others. Seems to be searching for new url but no show. When I close it down to re-open fresh a pop-up box appears with option 'close firefox'. Only when selected will firefox re-open. That then works fine for a few tabs then will not open after that. I have tried Refresh, Restart without add-ins, Safe mode. None have removed the problem. I have thought about Uninstall then reinstall a 'clean' firefox, but worried about losing all my data. The problem seems to have started a few weeks back after a Windows 10 update but I am not sure about that. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.
