This URL below will return a XML file in Edge/chrome but not in Firefox. I use Joomla as a CMS and it's extensions to display a RSS feed worked fine in both browsers until a couple of months ago. I've tried with a vanilla Mozilla/FF with all extensions disabled but still will not return the XML file

Hello, I'm seeking assistance with my website, https://blogbuzzz.com/, which I frequently access and manage using Mozilla Firefox. I've been encountering slow loading times, formatting & Security warning issues. This issue seems to be specific to Firefox, as I don't experience it in other browsers. Could you please help me understand why this is happening and how to resolve it? Any insights into browser-specific settings or adjustments that I need to consider for optimal website performance in Firefox would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!"

Hello, in my "Themes" section in the add-ons manager, I can view all the themes I have downloaded, and there are default ones I did not choose to install/download, and I would really like to disable these recommendations; for these, it only gives me the option "manage" whereas the ones I downloaded I also have the option choose to remove or report. They are not relevant to me, and they take up space and are a distraction from those I am interested in. Is there a way to disable these "Recommended Themes" section???

Hi, As far as I know, Firefox hasn't recently updated but somehow my address bar is now below the tabs. I have searched everywhere and can't find a solution. Searching shows that this has been happening repeatedly for years with people having to go as far as adding code to configure it. It has never happened to me until the change appeared randomly today. Am I missing something, or has the option completely (and pointlessly) disappeared? Please point me in the right direction to restore the position of the address bar. Thanks.

I really appreciate the container tab option for my browsing, as it affords me more privacy and I am a stickler about my privacy. However- I have been having an issue with links that I am attempting to open in a specific container that will load, and then immediately reload into the tab without a container. This has happened several times. The most recent example is that I clicked on a link from FB, a site I tend to avoid, and specified that I want it opened in a FB tab, as I don't trust them not to track me beyond that. However, the link loaded in the FB tab and immediately again with no container whatsoever. There was no request, no warning that I had set up the "multi-account container" and did I want to use it in the designated container... nothing. This has happened with links before as well.

Although strict privacy is set, I am able to logg into websites, although lock icon displays message "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla"

Hello,

NOTICE: Currently using Firefox 120.0.1 "Update disabled by your system administrator" I am unable to update the browser, the computers are from the public library.

Like I state in the Subject, I configure the browser to strict privacy level, and I am able to visit any site I want. No problem. But on all of these, when I click the lock icon on the address bar I read "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla." In fact, right now, I am visiting this website and I got that notice. View image "Firefox broser does not recognize the certificate issuer fortinet but I can visit the firefox suport website - Screenshot 2024-01-28 172732.png"

WOW... View the image "certificate issuer not recognized by Firefox - fortinet - when visiting support.firefox.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 173041.png" for some of the info I get if I view more information about the certificate.

Then, after I logged out, the "Clear cookies and site data" link that appears after clicking the lock icon I mentioned before do not appear.

View the image "UNable to clear cookies and site data - proton.me - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141951 - edited.png"

In this same computer, I got the control "Clear cookies and site data." View image "able to clear cookies and site data - virustotal.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141825.png"

So more than one question:

I read other posts where users are unable to visit a website which has a certificate issued by an issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla. Why am I able to visit these websites?

What can I expect of the non appearing "Clear cookies and site data" link I described before?

Are these computers like totally hacked?

my hardware is very outdated already and i wanna try if my firefox runs better without any hardware acceleration like running fully on software.

i don't think that just simply disabling the hardware acceleration in the settings disables the entire hardware acceleration because there are way more about:config preferences which are related to hardware acceleration.

The site works with Microsoft Edge, which is not my usual browser. (That's Firefox). I have tried clearing history and it has no effect. Can anyone confirm that this is a Firefox message and what it means?

The title pretty much says it. On some phpBB forum I am member of, since yesterday, I can't write long messages and see what I'm writing.

When my texte is bigger than the default frame, the scrollbar jumps at the top of the post while i'm still writing. This doesn't happen with other browers on same webpage.

Any idea ?

Hi,

I'm getting errors when trying to make online card payments with Firefox. Things like, Invalid card number, not being able to type number in box provided, (No Cursor). It works ok on some sites but not others. However, if I switch to the Edge browser all transactions work perfectly. This has been happening for some time (Windows 11). I'm thinking this could be a bug but not sure.
