Please Help! Why am I all of a sudden getting this error message? I have been using Firefox for years and Gmail.

Do you really want to use HTML Gmail?

You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers. To get all of Gmail's features, including inbox categories, images and quick actions, please use the latest version of Gmail (recommended).

Take me to latest Gmail

Netflix, Charles Schwab, others appear to not recognize my device and require two step authentication, every time, but saying now my device is registered and I won't need to do that again. But I do. What do I need to change so that their marker remains without losing all my privacy? Is it a cookie? Do I have to change the Dashboard to no security? Can I do that for just one website at a time?

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

cross tab bar flashing line and flashing of all open tabs

My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.

Tabs in the tab bar randomly, suddenly can't be interacted with by mouse/trackpad pointer, sometimes even just the one and only tab in a window won't close when clicking on the "X." The keyboard commands to cycle between tabs and close tabs still work, but this is frustrating nevertheless. I've tried disabling all the add-ons I added in the month or two before the problem started. I refreshed Firefox, but once I added my add-ons back in, the problem persisted.

What else can I try to fix this? Any input would be appreciated.

After using messenger with no problems for years, yesterday I tried to make calls (audio/video) in messenger and keep getting an error message that my "brower" doen't support them now. I have the latest verion of Firefox 78.02. Anyone else experiencing this?

It asks me to use either Firefox (which I obviously have, or chrome).

I switched to chrome and got the same error message when trying to make a call as well.

Thanks for any help.

New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

I am using Firefox on a 2013 Macbook Pro running Yosemite 10.10.5. Every week or so Firefox closes on its own. I will be using Firefox all week and then return to find that Firefox has closed and I can't restore my session. There is no crash report. Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this to happen and what to do to prevent it? Is there a setting that I don't know about that limits session lengths? This does seem to happen at pretty regular intervals. It doesn't happen with other browsers or applications. Thanks.

The only way I am able to login into Bands in Town manager is through my facebook account (https://manager.bandsintown.com/login), but I am not able to through Firefox browser. I am able to do it through Safari Browser so it seems that it's something to do with the firefox browser. I restarted my computer and updated the firefox browser but it is still not working.

For years now FireFox has failed to fix the bug in their preferences that continues to open new links on top of old tabs - destroying what ever work was present there. This has been reported in every version for year and it is extremely irritating that FireFox does not address this time wasting and frustrating issue. Please fix this.

I want to know can someone hack Gmail accounts without logging in? I received mails from instagram that new login has been from new device with location from russia. another email few minutes after the first saying new login from iphone from bangladesh ,and third email that the password has been changed . The username which was mentioned is not created by me.someone used my email. also how does Instagram have my email address?As it might be I had a Instagram account which was created in 2019 and then deleted the app from my phone.I had only used it for few days. There is no direct complaint portal where such kind of incidents can be reported.all is automated which is dumb. I tried to complain but emails relies were to send a authenticated government ID which I should hold in my hands and send them a picture so they can authenticate and take action for the account. As I informed that the user ID is not the one which I have created why they should have my ID? but no response and same reply again. is there a dummy Instagram website?which we log in through the net instead of the app? is this a phising scam ? I changed the password and also put in new email address in the same account with the same username . I want to find out more and also alert those who might fall victim of such events. Please help if have more knowledge about it.

what is the logic behind the moronic popout address bar? why was the arrow button removed? was there perhaps a petition signed by millions asking for it? I don't remember seeing one. why was the option to disable it removed with the latest release? do you think we all want to use Firefox but feel like we're using Chrome? copying your competitor in order to attract its users isn't exactly the best USP. it serves no purpose whatsoever, and everything about it hurts the eye - the sparsed out list when you click on it, the fading edges, the whole white-blue mobile-on-desktop aesthetic, it's just hideous.

why can't this nonsense be made optional? if there are hordes of bored developers who need to justify their existence by fiddling with stuff that nobody complains about then fine, let them go at it, but make it optional for those of us who don't want to live by corporate diktat, and whose opnions and feedback you so profess to care about.

I despair, I really do. I've been using FF pretty much since it began, and if this isn't fixed with the next relase, I'm happy to wave goodbye, not that anyone cares, but there you have it.

I just read in Firefox Monitor that I showed up in 6 breaches.

When I looked at the details, they were all reported before I changed my password.

So - if I'd already changed my password after those breaches were discovered, do I need to change it again?
