Since about 13:00 GMT yesterday, Firefox could not load or display the Hostinger h-panel. It sometimes partially and sometimes completely displays all the page content. But all the controls are dead. Firefox seems to be very busy doing something. I told Hostinger and they spent some time looking into the problem. They got Firefox to load the h-panel but said that it was vastly slower than other browsers in doing so. With me, Firefox still stops doing anything once the content is loaded and ALL controls on the page are still dead. When closing Firefox in this state, there is considerable delay before the window actually closes.

I thought that perhaps Hostinger had done an update that called in some proprietary JavaScript extensions that Firefox couldn't handle. I get the impression that in trying to display the h-panel pages, Firefox is trying to acquire some content from an external site, as requested somewhere within the HTML/JavaScript source code.

Any ideas? robert_john.morton@yahoo.com

I'm at a loss for words here. I have a website I frequent and it has a really annoying behavior. I'm a developer so finally I mustered the strength to do something about it. I googled how to create an extension in Firefox and within 5 minutes I had a working extension that solved their annoyance. However, I can only load it temporarily. If I close Firefox, it goes away. When I try to actually install it, it says I need to have it signed. I have now spent the better part of an hour trying to find out how to self sign it. I refuse to believe that I have to submit this to Mozilla for me to be able to install my own code. Can someone please send me in the direction of how i self sign and install my own extension. I have no intention of publishing, I only want to run this for myself.

I have been using FF for many years but recently have started having issues on eBay.co.uk

At the moment it specifically relates to leaving feedback on my sold items.

I'm currently logging in on MS Edge or Chrome to leave feedback as FF just will not work.

I've tried FF on a clean install on a 2nd PC (no add-ons) and still get the issue.

Please help as I am now having to use Edge & Chrome so much I may as well move over to them which I would rather not do.

Is it possible to customize the URL pulldown? When I click in the URL window - I am presented with 6 website options along with various web search options. It would be helpful to modify the options since none of them apply to me. I tried deleting history, playing with the settings/search suggestions/change settings. I want to specify certain websites - and leave it that way. I've tried right clicking the site, shift deleting, contrl deleting. Nothing works. If it is possible - it is not intuitive. I notice that the list does slowly seem to update and evolve depending on where I have been. But I don't want that either. Thx IW

If I go to Safelite and start scheduling an appointment, navigating through that set of webpages will cause my computer to green screen/crash. The landing page at https://safelite.com asks for a zip code, and submitting that form puts you into the scheduling flow; after entering some details about a vehicle, I can click back and continue a few times (less than ten) to make my computer crash. I was able to reproduce the issue in troubleshooting mode. I also tried the same steps in Chrome, but it did not produce a crash.

This computer has had an issue with crashing in this manner for a while now, but this is the first thing I've noticed consistently causes a crash. I'm not expecting a solution, but I am hoping to close in on the issue; whether or not Firefox is the source here is questionable, but it does seem highly entangled.

After after update to 121.0.1 on Ubuntu, I'm not asked anymore for Primary Password at startup, hence I cannot use my saved logins and certificates. If I restart in Troubleshooting mode, I have the pop up for Primary Password back, which is working as expected. Restarting normally after disabled all Add-Ons does not solve the problem.

Been using Firefox for years. Also reading Foxnews. Starting yesterday I cannot post any comments at the site. I can go to Edge and all works fine, so there is something with Firefox that is conflicting with Foxnews. At first I was not able to even read articles but removed all Addon's and that has been fixed--even after reinstalling all Addon's I can still read articles. I log into my Fox account and the webpage reflects that but when I try to post a comment it says I must sign in to post, yet I am signed in! However, I go ahead and follow the links to sign in (check e-mail/click sign in to Fox etc.), ultimately it tells me I'm now signed in. But when I go back to the comment section it still says I must sign in to post but I am signed in. Besides removing Addon's I also tried removing the FF browser (Win 10 recommended a refresh instead of uninstall so I did that). No help, I'm thinking whatever is causing the conflict when refreshing FF the sync simply puts the conflict back! I'm still requested to sign in when I am signed in! As stated earlier my Fox account in MS Edge works fine.

In the last few days whenever I download a PDF file instead of it being displayed in my default PDF read Firefox (version 121.0.1) takes over and displays the contents of the file. I do not want this, I prefer my PDF reader! How do I stop Firefox trying to take over this function? (other than converting to Chrome)

I have noticed that my browser saves certain data that was filled into forms on websites such as contact info, or 2FA codes. Of course, the all options for Logins and Passwords as well as Forms and Autofill are turned off. So I wonder, what causes this behavior? I would maybe think these are some cookies, but after clearing them and deleting all site data this still happens. For 2FA codes this is harmless. but I'm concerned Firefox may do this for passwords too. Anyway, why would I need to save info of TOTP?

Note: Example is for SimpleLogin.
