Desktop shortcut not working

I am having a problem with creating a "workable" desktop shortcut for the Walmart grocery website. (I do not have problems with any other shortcuts I have created, only the Walmart website shortcut). The problem only began recently, as I have had a shortcut on my desktop for Walmart for months now. When the website locked up on me one day I deleted the original shortcut I had at that time, and I have tried many times since to create another one, but none will work. I am able to click and drag, from the Walmart website, to the desktop, to create the shortcut, however when I click on the shortcut to open it I only get a blank page. This is ONLY with the Walmart shortcut I create. What's going on, and why is this happening! It's infuriating!

The 76.01 update of Firefox has completely broken the audio function in my browser. Youtube and Yahoo Finance specifically. I have not checked further. Yes I know Windows 7 is not supported by Microsoft, but Firefox has claimed that it would support Windows 7 indefinitely. Yesterday when I opened Firefox a message said that audio and video might not work if I did not have DRM enabled. I checked and saw that I had DRM enabled, but audio did not work. A button in the message said Enable DRM, I clicked the button anyway. No audio. I restarted Firefox, no audio. I restarted my computer, no audio. I opened Chrome and everything is working fine. I did not even okay this update. I have my preferences set to NOT automatically update. it seems like Firefox is ignoring my preferences. Firefox should provide an instant downgrade to the previous version that supported audio. In the past I have downgraded a few times until things were working smoothly, but it's a headache. Now I understand Firefox makes it even harder to do that. I may just switch to Chrome permanently.

The drop-down menu for the address bar on my computer now has little pin images over the icons. I used to have 10 sites listed, but now there's just 8, and a couple of them are sites I don't use anymore, but I can't remove them; I highlight them and hit Shift-Delete, but they won't go away! I don't know what the new update did, but I want this fixed.

When I signed on to my computer this a.m. and clicked on the Firefox icon from my Task Bar (on the bottom of the page) to bring up my homepage, it wouldn't go. I rec'd a msg stating it "couldn't find" a .dll file or something. When I clicked on the icon on my desktop, it started a whole new page - I lost all my "saved" pages and my "favorites" menu was gone! What happened and how can I get my "normal" Firefox page ?

Hi

Some months ago I added a 32" samsung usb screen to my PC, my operating system is windows 7, This maybe coincidental and not at fault. Since adding the screen my Firefox browser crashes, what happens is the screen starts flashing and most of the display disapears you can click on some buttons if displayed or you know where they are but the only way to stop it is to close and reopen the browser, it seems to happen more frequently in a browsing session once its happend once, sometimes it dosn't happen. It seems to be triggered by the mouse scrolling wheel. I have removed and reloaded Firefox but still the same, when reloading it recognises the previous instalation and recalls some previous settings, I don't seem to be able to stop this happening. Lastly the fault does not occur on any other browser. Firefox is my default and prefered browser and I would like to cure this if possible, I have run virus scans etc and dont appear to have any contamination issues.

Any advise gratefully recieved

Many thanks Steve Hull

Windows 7SP1. With the Firefox 78.0.1 update, search with Amazon.com, You Tube, Facebook, Reddit, Wikipedia and Twitter appear below the address bar when I start to type the url. I only have as default DuckDuckGo and Start Page HTTPS selected in options, and no alternatives.

I saw the one reply to this issue to use the about:config, browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches, change to false. This did not work.

Why has this been done? I don’t want them and I don’t use them. How do I get rid of this?

If I start opening a hundreds-megabyte PDF, or a JS-heavy website, or a server just do not respond at all, I expect that when I'll press "Stop" button browser would... emm... stop: stop trying to render the rest of the page, stop trying to establish the connection... But notning happens. I don't see any reactions to Stop button. The only way to stop the download is to close the tab (I'm not sure, I hope it stops). By the way, it is especially "nice" when the program closes together with the closing of the last (as suddenly will be realized later) tab.

So, there is the "Stop/Reload" button. Does it do something like stop something? Or it is purely decorative/irritative? Or I just press it wrong way?
