Clicking a hyperlink in an Excel 365 worksheet will not open the URL in Firefox.

Using Excel 365, the worksheets contain tables of short interest history collected from a URL that varies only in the portion that is the companies symbol ( i.e. https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/stocks/akts/short-interest , where "akts" is the company symbol ). On the worksheet for each company this URL, with the correct symbol for the company has been included in a cell using the hyperlink feature.

In the past, clicking any of the hyperlinks immediately opened my default browser, which is the current version of Firefox, to the web page for the company identified by the symbol in the URL.

That changed after a version update of Firefox a number of months ago. Clicking the hyperlink will most times "freeze" Excel, and if I click anywhere in or on Excel a "not responding" message is thrown, and Excel must be manually closed resulting in a recover event for all workbooks that were open. Sometimes, not always, waiting several minutes, Firefox will open the URL. Not always. I've found that if that occurs, clicking on the same URL hyperlink that finally opened (after having closed it in Firefox) will crash Excel.

The attached image is a view of the "tip" still visible on a black screen after Excel has crashed.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Two Questions:

I have been using BookBrush.com on Firefox for a couple of years now, but for the past two days, when I try to open it, either by entering the URL directly or clicking on a bookmark, it does nothing. It won't open at all. I can open it in a different browser, though. Can you tell me what's going on with BookBrush on your browser?

Also, when I try to access the website LuanaEhrlich.com, it doesn't load with all the images. It loads perfectly on another browser. Can you tell me what the issue is?

Thanks so much!

A few weeks ago the product reviews at Costco.com disappeared. I spoke with Costco today and they said they could see them and that I should switch to Google Chrome for better results. I tried turning off the privacy, no trackers on their site but it didn't help. Logging in or not didn't make any difference. AdGuard 7.6.1 is disabled on Costco's site. The 5 star rating system woks fine with Amizon and other sites. I am also using Norton 360 if that makes a difference. Any solutions?

When I open a jpg image in a new tab and try to use the Zoom Controls on the custom toolbar: On one of my desktop PCs the Zoom Control will function to enlarge the image if I click the + button and restore it to its original size if I click 100%. On my other desktop PC the Zoom Control functions properly on text such as this, etc., but does not enlarge jpg images. Both PCs are running the most current version of Windows, both are running the most current version of Firefox Nightly. Displays and display cards are different. Not sure if this is a bug report, or I missed a settings adjustment. Michael

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.

Even when I stepped away from the computer and it went to sleep, the browser froze and I had to force quit.
