Starting yesterday, Feb. 24, Firefox suddenly started signing me out of everything every time I close the browser and reopen. It is not and never has been set to do that or empty cookies/cache until I direct it to do so on my computer. I have checked all settings. What is going on and how--in simple language--do I fix this? (Can't even understand the troubleshooting directions, too much jargon.)

  1. Visit the blog alvarotrigo.com/blog/animated-backgrounds-css/
  2. Scroll down the page until you find the title "Snowfall Effect Animated Background (CSS only)"

The window will flicker and Firefox becomes unresponsive until it just exits and with no Mozilla Crash Reporter window appearance.

  • The crash happens upon a new default Firefox 97.0.1 profile on Windows 11.
  • It do not occure in Firefox 98.0b9.
  • The CSS Snowfall Effect is likely unrelated, visiting its CodePen directly do not trigger the crash: codepen.io/alvarotrigo/pen/YzxJpoE

No websites will load at all. The address looks fine but the loading ends up timing out just like when the address isn't correct or the site is having issues. I believe this started after the last update, I don't remember if it was a Firefox or windows update. I've tried the suggested troubleshooting tips, and uninstalled re-installed firefox twice. All I achieved was to lose my dark theme and previous open tabs.

Running Firefox 97.0.1 - 64 bit - on Windows 11 with 2022-02 updates, https is on. Just did a refresh of Firefox. No extensions. Using NordVPN, but have same problem with it disconnected: When I go to Verizon.com , Firefox hangs transferring data from assets.adobetm.com . Using Chrome or Edge does not give a hang; virtually immediate access to log in. What can I do to diagnose / fix this, please?

What's up with all the daily updates? Most times it's about every other day. Sometimes it's daily for a day or two. It takes me to a download and install firefox browser site. I have only done it the first time I got the update notice. I now check under the help tab. It tells me I'm up to date, without the new update. Is anyone else having the same problem?

I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

I get the message "Oops. Your browser is no longer support..." from tubitv.com and the error message "We are having troubling playing Netfix. Please make sure you are using the latest....Error Code: F7701-1003" from NetFlix.

Is this an issue with Firefox?

It seems to work fine with Edge. I have not tried with any other browsers.

Thanks

When I go to log into my Microsoft Account using their Edge browser, I get the proper login window. (see attachment-upper part) When I attempt to log in to my Microsoft Account using Firefox I get the garbage in the lower half of my attachment, and the page DOES NOT work. It always used to work, and I don't remember changing any settings. I want to use Firefox and Bing Rewards, but if it won't let me log into my Microsoft Account I can't access Bing Rewards! I don't want to use Edge, I have always preferred Firefox. What's going on?! Thanks for any help, Dave

I am unable to livestream video services from a monastery in the UK. I have clicked into the little shield at the left end of the web address bar in order to turn off the enhanced protection, but this does not have any effect, even though the website shows up as having had the protection disabled. I don't know whether I need to do anything in Firefox settings.

I was advised to use Google Chrome, and that browser does let me enter, but I prefer to stay with Firefox for all my browsing. I am an elderly person, and have to work harder than my children and grandchildren to keep up-to-date. If you could help me with some very clear instructions with the minumum of technical jargon I would be most grateful. I submit below a screenshot of what I see on the site despite the protection having been switched off on the little shield.

So, is it Windows or Firefox browser that has completely screwed up our ability to simply set the background color for the browser, title bar and menu instead of being forced to use what some programmer decided on a Friday to create so they could go home early.? If it's Firefox, then go back to your browser people and tell them to fix this garbage. I'm going to have to look into other browsers if this is some permanent screw up. I'd really appreciate hearing from Firefox in answer to this.

I've always used Firefox browser instead of Microsoft Edge, and I would like to continue using Firefox. However, it will not run in its current form under Windows 11. Does Mozilla plan to keep it compatible with Windows? I would like to keep using Firefox.

Just got a new laptop with Windows 11, installed Firefox, and am running FF 98.0.1. When scrolling on some pages, the buttons look like they're constantly flashing. But if I scroll slowly, I can see that the button color is itself scrolling within the button boundary. Or at least, that's what it looks like. Attached a sequence of images to show what I mean. Can anyone help? It's so irritating that I might be forced to use a different browser, which I don't want to do! This didn't happen on my old laptop running Window 10.
