Twitter's Login page doesn't load in Firefox

Twitter's login page won't load when I try to open it in Firefox. https://twitter.com/ https://twitter.com/ loads just fine, account pages like https://twitter.com/firefox load just fine, and individual tweets individual tweets load just fine. But when I click the login button on any working page, or go directly to the login page at https://twitter.com/i/flow/login, all I get is a white rectangle in the middle of the screen that flashes a loading-spinner for a few frames every two seconds but never actually loads any page content.

I can log in just fine in Chrome, so the problem is specific to Firefox. The problem started at least a week ago, but I don't log in on my desktop regularly enough to know exactly when the problem started.

I turned my Browser Privacy setting to "Standard" and cleared all site data from Twitter, with no effect. I use uBlock Origin, but the problem persists when I disable it. The problem also occurs in Private windows.

Just what they title says. If I launch Firefox and immediately click in the URL bar to type in a search, instead of preventing the page URL from appearing, it adds it after my cursor once the page has loaded. For example, if I launch Firefox and immediately start typing "weather in my area" it becomes "weather in my areahttps://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions".

This is a mild frustration, but a persistent one. It must be possible to fix, because other browsers (Chrome) are clever enough to not add any text once the user clicks the URL bar. What can I do to stop this from happening?

Firefox 123.0 Now Opens up New Tab or Window - How to Override This?

Ever since I installed Firefox 123.0, when I execute a search on Yahoo.com, Firefox automatically opens up a new window or tab (depending upon how you have it set up in settings) when it didn't before. When I try this with Firefox using Google.com to search, it does NOT open up a new window/tab. But when I try it with Yahoo.com when using Google Chrome, it does NOT open up a new tab. So it would appear that the behavior is being caused by something in Firefox.

I tried making various changes in settings and Firefox about:config that were recommended in previous questions here, but they did not alter the behavior. I would like the behavior to return to simply performing the search within the same window (I can always scroll back to get the original page). Can anyone help?

Running Windows 10 and Firefox 102.9.0esr 64-bit. I seem to have affected the print facility so that the contents of a frame within a webpage do not print. The frame contents do show on the preview screen but then disappear when the Print button is pressed and they are not printed. The rest of the webpage is printed OK. Typically this happens to the 'Sellers Description' on an Ebay item. I have upgraded to Firefox 115.7.0esr but this has not fixed the problem. The print works fine on another machine running Windows 10 and Firefox 91.6.0esr 64-bit. Is there a way to get the full print back? Regards, LRB

Hi. Is there anyone having experienced similar phenomena?

1) Firefox stops showing Gmail correctly after a few days. Immediately after starting Firefox, I can log-in and open Gmail.com correctly. But after a few days keeping opening Gmail on Firefox, Gmail.com shows error messages regarding Cookie (please see the attached screenshot). If I do "Try clearing the startup cache" from trouble shooting information tab, Firefox shows Gmail correctly again, but after a few days the same issue happens again.

2) Fire fox cannot log-in on Outlook.live.com. As title says, I cannot log-in outlook live. Whenever I try to log-in from Outlook log-in page, Firefox shows log-in page again. This issue isn't resolved by inactivating "Enhanced tracking protection".

Both of them started to happen since the update around the end of 2023, I think. (On the other hand, Chrome works on both websites correctly)

If you have some information, it might help me. Thanks in advance.

Since last upgrade Firefox seems unable to access any wordpress sites.

Always says to enable cookies. I've done that but still not possible access.

Is Firefox now becoming so "secure" it is useless?

There are more and more web sites where Firefox just is no longer a viable browser.

There is no clear "ENABLE" cookies option to resolve this just pages on explanations about safety yada yada yada.

I just want a button that says ENABLE COOKIES so I don't have to constantly seek answers to use this browser on a particular web site.

As much as I hate Chrome I am finding it more useful now than FireFox

Hi,

I wish to provide a co worker with access to some websites (and provide the site passwords), this will involve - from what I can see setting up a separate FF profile (that we both sync to - by using a Firefox Account) on my PC, somehow copying the bookmarks and passwords from my general profile into a new 'co worker' profile, the co worker (via sync) would then see the bookmark, and then hopefully also have the password available.

I can see how to export/import all my bookmarks, or have her sync to my 'general' FF account quite easily, but I only want to give her access to work related bookmarks and PWds.

Any thoughts appreciated.

I had posted my question yesterday and received a response from jscher2000. I sent a reply to the response by email a short while ago, but I wasn't sure it went through. Therefore, at the possible expense of having you receive the reply twice, I have recopied it here:

Thank you for trying to help me download Firefox onto my computer. As per your advice, I first tried shutting down and restarting my computer. That did not work. Then I went onto the link you sent me: https://www. mozilla,org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release . The installation began, but only got up to around 80 - 90%. It stopped at the point where it said Execute: "C:|Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\default-browser-agent.exe" register-task 308046B... (It looks like there might be some more letters and/or numbers after the "B", but I can't see what they are.) I waited a few more hours to see if the installation would continue, but it did not. I then went back to try downloading Firefox in the regular way. First I got a message, "Now installing. Firefox will be ready in just a few moments." Again, installation proceeded to around 80 - 90 %, and then I got a message, "Hmmm. For some reason, we could not install Firefox. Choose OK to start over." Starting over didn't help. I got the same message. Any further help or advice that you can give me would be greatly appreciated. drzee1946 email: drzee1946@gmail.com

I've discovered it has something to do with Amazon.

I didn't know I had it until I just migrated to Windows 10 and a new firefox update occurred.

Even then, my only clue is a little orange "triangle" that shows up at the top line of the 'hamburger' menu at the top right on the screen. When I clicked on it, I got a message saying "Silk Privacy Pass wants to update".

I went to my installed extensions/themes screen and there is nothing about a silk extension or add-on.

It also showed up when I looked in the startup configuration and it showed it was loading during startup there. I disabled it. But today I just got the orange triangle again an hour ago wanting me to let it update.

I want it gone!! Especially when it showed up on my system without my asking or knowingly agreeing to it.


FWIW, I also ran Agent Ransack (search utility) on the drives and "Silk" does not come up as a file name for an app, DLL or any other file.

Is there a way to rename things in the Passwords list? I'm not concerned about MY password or sign-in, but what appears in the list. A name such as "login.live.com" tells me nothing about what site that sign-in will take me to. I'd like to be able to rename it with something that gives me a hint.

I have a fairly long list of saved logins, and visually scan the list at times to get to a supplier or service I need.

I'm using a desktop, Windows 10.

Thanks.

Hi there. I use mailjet for sending email newsletters and campaigns. The images that i was uploading into the mailjet templates where displaying fine both on mailjet and when sent to mozilla firefox users.

The problem is that for 10 days now; when i upload images in mailjet and sending newsletters; the images are not displaying in mozilla. In contrast, when i use chrome everything displays fine, both mailjet and email accounts.

I had a long chat history with mailjet support and they requested to follow these instructions to fix this issue first: https://documentation.mailjet.com/hc/en-us/articles/360058211453-Why-are-my-images-not-displayed-missing-in-the-Email-Editor I did this but i had no success so they requested me to use chrome instead of mozilla. But that is not the solution of the problem because this must address all different browser users.

Can you please help me on this?

Thank you,

Hello, so I have been putting my custom links onto the 'top sites' start page in Firefox, by editing the icons and putting the URL, etc. It is a great 'speed dial' type feature I love. One thing has me tearing my hair out after trying all ways to try and fix this to appear to my liking, is the 'custom icon' from the website not showing in the sites I want to 'speed dial' Facebook and YT show up fine, but random sites I want on the page don't do this. I don't care why this is anymore, please don't give lengthily fixes. It's just silly you need a working URL with an icon at the end of it to display this properly. It did make me very mad, can you tell, even madder when I saw it done as it should be in OPERA browser, on their 'top sites', or 'speed dial' customizable home page they have the sensible option there to pick your own icon, you can put in a folder on your desktop if you like, no working URL needed! start a collection of what icons you want to see on your own start page. Can you please implement this 'common sense' modification as soon as possible, it will take only minutes of code writing i'm sure. I do not want to, but I will go to Opera as my main browser for this common sense functionality, good luck and thank you.

Hi dear Community!

As of recent, my AntiVirus software is flagging Firefox.exe (Full path: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe) as a vulnerable application. I have been using firefox for years (Because I love it, you guys are heroes) and i have been using Kaspersky for years. Firefox has only been flagged as of recent.........

I hope someone knows why, has this too or can calm my paranoia

Some Additional information:

Have you clicked any suspicious links? No i have not. The links i have visited were all https, checked and acknowledged by Kaspersky and i can say with full certainty that the sites were legit

Have i downloaded any files as of recent? Yes, but from reputable sources and always checked using Hashes and validating using KSN (Kaspersky security network).

(For the Mods, im sorry for previously posting this in the wrong forum.)
