Looking for a solution/work around to the new FF protocols which REFUSE exceptions, which has cut me off from streaming from LEGITIMATE web sites like https://news.stlpublicradio.org/ and other sites as well.

I have used FireFox since Netscape, but am now using Chrome which works fine.

Security is great, but when the security Trumps the ability to actually USE the web sites, then how is that different than just blocking the "offending" website.

You should ask yourselves why the FF market share is so low.

You guys need to come out of the clouds and smell the digital earth where most of us dwell. I love you all for what you do, but you seem to be blowing it. Please get it together.

Hi,

My wife & I have used Firefox for some considerable time now and like it a lot.

However, we have been having trouble with Firefox recently and wonder if you are aware of this. It manifests itself in a very subtle way with only some FEATURES of a particular website not operating, (but no ‘warning’ messages whatsoever).

To begin with, I was at a loss to understand why something didn’t work but, now that this has happened to me on THREE different websites (with features that work perfectly well under MS Edge!), I have come to the conclusion that Firefox is the only “common denominator”.

The first problem was with https://www.parcel2go.com. They have a “Live Help” (Chat) feature. It no longer works with Firefox!

The second was with https://account.patientaccess.com. Try to order “repeat prescriptions” and all is well – until you hit “send”. It no longer works with Firefox!

Today, I have discovered that with https://www.bt.com I am now longer able to access my BT email accounts. Furthermore, they also have a “chat” facility – except that is now also ‘invisible’ to Firefox!

I have seen mention that DuckDuckGo (which I also use) might be involved here?

What’s happened?!!

EVERY time Firefox does an update just about everything changes for me, including my homepage, my icons for add ons are gone, now my link to my email is gone, I always wonder if I'm on the correct version or not. It says I am but what happened to all of my settings. I cannot tell you the number of times I've had to find my THEME and since there is no rhyme or reason as to how the themes are categorized it takes me forever to find the one I want. It doesn't seem to matter what settings I have entered because they are changed along with everything else. I have asked this question before and the answers I have received do not work. And another question. I do not like the background in "black" with the titles highlighted in yellow when I am searching. Very difficult for me to read, I've attempted to change that many times but can't seem to figure that out either. Oh, Lord where is Microsoft 7 when I need it? An OS that even I could figure out.

Perhaps finding the glitch in the changes that always take place after an update should be your next update.

Any site I go to such as my utility companies that have a link for me to open and view my bill while logged into my online account are prevented from opening by Firefox. Their help articles define the pop-up window as a window that opens automatically. That is not what I'm talking about. I am selecting the link. I am giving the site permission to open the window. It is not automatic. Google Chrome, Microsoft edge, no other browser has this problem. please help.

I currently have this add-on installed. It allows you to you highlight certain text, then right click and open up a link to Wiktionary in another tab. Up until a few minutes ago, this menu item was at the very top of the list (i.e. above "undo" and all the rest), but now it's been moved down with all the other add-ons. Image for further clarity.

The add-on hasn't been updated in 6 years, so it's certainly not that. I don't recall doing anything to make it change, but before this, it had been at the top of the menu ever since I added it maybe 2 years ago. Is there any potential way to restore this functionality? The fact that it appeared at the very top of the menu might have been a bug, but if that's the case, it was certainly a convenient one.

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to hearing from you fine folks in this community.

After update to FF 101.0.1 access to the Open24 banking website is somewhat 'bumpy'. 1) Usually, if you enter the Open24 access number, the cursor automatically proceeds to the next window. It no longer does this - you have to to it manually. (Win 10) 2) Same problem with the password. 3) Same problem with the Personal Access Number (PAN). 4) Once I am IN my account, only a part of the links do work. Opening 'recent transactions' does NOT. 5) If I try to log out, instead of the usual confirmation I get a blank screen with the PTSB logo on top.

  • Using another browser (in this case Edge) does NOT cause ANY problem!*

So, I have to assume, this problem is version related. Please correct this asap! Thank you.

"Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.pinterest.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.pinterest.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

I have already tried deleting and removing all data from Firefox, and reinstalling it again but it doesn't work. I'm really at a loss with what to do.
