I use DuckDuckGo for my basic search engine on both my laptop (Ubuntu system) and iPhone 8. It does not work today - saying "There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.", needless to say...I have tried a number of times and differed the searches to no avail. I also cleared recent cache/history. Still stuck. Searching on Chrome I see on https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=40451490 that others are also experiencing this problem and do not understand it either - just a few entries

The Sun (a rather populist newspaper in UK) has an article saying it is international and happening today, 23 May 2024, suggests no fixes. (Not exactly a reliable source in my thing)

Has anyone ideas or should I just wait and use an alternative search engine meanwhile? Thanks for any help

No longer able to copy or paste text on Firefox with Windows 10. Copy and Paste are greyed out in the right click menu after selecting text. Using CTRL-C, V or P does nothing at all. Still works fine in other browsers. What has Firefox broken again this time?

When attempting to play some videos with Firefox browser, mainly from X (Twitter) I receive "This video can't be played." However, I can't play them with Safari either. But it will play on Safari on another computer. I don't know what is wrong. Could it be some settings on my computer? I'm not a computer ace but know some things. Thank You for any help/ advice.

I am having an issue with Fidelity using Firefox. When I open their "Trade" drop down window, it is not functional. Also, when I click the "Replace" button on the open orders page, I get an Error message saying to try later.

I used Edge for these activities and all worked well. I talked to tech support at Fidelity and he said to contact Firefox.

Has anybody else had issues with Fidelity.com?

Thanks, Kenney G.

Cursor hover does not work properly on Firefox

When I hover elements, such as text, links, or buttons, the cursor does not change (as in, from the pointer to a hand when hovering over a link, etc.). Well, actually, it does change, but only for a small fraction of a second before returning to the normal pointer. This makes elements on web pages that have hover events almost impossible to use (such as drop-downs like the "Get Help" one at the top of support.mozilla.org) unless I left-click and hold while hovering over the element. This, of course, requires me to click on the element, which might have other consequences.

Hovering works fine with other browsers. This is on an M2 Mac. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox

Hello there :)

Please help me restore my browsing session :(

For the past several months I have been using Mozilla, and the feature to restore previous browsing session has always worked well. Even after I clear the most recent history or remove the most immediate cookies, this feature would still work e.g. after I restart my PC or just restart the browser. It would restore all the tabs I was using previously including the most recent tab I was on before the browser closed or restarted. However, this morning, I tried to clear my immediate browsing history as I usually do and the browser froze while I was in the process of clearing this immediate history (continuously displaying the pop-up window/interface for clearing history and not allowing me to do much else on the browser - I couldn't even click anything on the tab I was on, nor could I navigate to another tab and/or open a new tab; and only the close button, and maximize window button, and minimize window buttons were responding). After waiting for a while for it to start working again, I got frustrated and I closed the browser.

I then opened the browser again, but this time, it didn't restore the previous browsing session and didn't even take me to the last tab I was on.

What could have happened this time around? It has not behaved like that for this whole year.

NB: I have not done anything to the browser after opening it! I am still on the same page it landed on when I opened it (just in case).

So, there's an extension I want to pin, right? It has no menu, meaning that it's grayed out usually. However, the website it's supposed to affect does not get affected. That is, unless I were to refresh the site, then quickly move my mouse to the extensions menu, open it, and show the extension.
