I am using Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit) on a iMac decktop running mac OS Big Sur Version 11.5 When I am in a particular website and I am accessing different aspects of the website and I get the following message: "400 Bad request Your browser sent an invalid request" What is happening? When I access the same website on Safari and go to do the same things, it operates fully. What is happening?

I have once again lost all my pinned tabs. The answers to this I'm seeing are random and unstructured. This is becoming an issue for me as I use this function frequently. Can the Mozilla team PLEASE fix this properly as it appears to mess up a few folks. And the answer is NOT having to quit and restart. They should be presevered in their own right. And please can you implement synching of Pinned Tabs across my login domain. Ta muchly

When I open Google Maps it doesn't show the normal icons for navigation on the map. It doesn't do anything when I have hardware acceleration enabled and I type something in the search bar. If I disable hardware acceleration it does a search, but in no way can I get it to show the place I want to see. It just shows the map of Rotterdam, where Google thinks I live based on my IP address.

It does work in Safari though, so it's a Firefox problem. I hope you can fix it. Google seems to give the FF team lots of problems.

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

I'm out of tricks here. Last night I updated Windows on my desktop (Windows 10) and after several hiccups and restarts the computer is operating correctly...except for Firefox. The browser window opens normally but clicking on any bookmark or typing a web addy manually does nothing...it just stays blank. When using a bookmark, no address propagates to the address bar. In an effort to fix this I have done Firefox refresh (a few times now), run Firefox in troubleshoot mode (a few times and at least once this caused Firefox to crash), uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (twice, second time WITHOUT saving prior account settings), restarted computer and uninstalled adblocker.

Absolutely NO change from any of this. My laptop (Apple with Firefox) works fine and the desktop WILL browse just fine on MS Edge, so this is not a connectivity problem. Any ideas on fixing this would be greatly appreciated. TIA

iMac macOS 11.5 Firefox 90.0.2

Firefox pretty much crashed every time I quit. Doesn't matter if I'm looking at a web page or close all windows before quitting.

Restarting in Trouble Shoot mode doesn't help either.

The cause seems to be synchronisation - if I sign out of my account and no longer synchronise, the problem goes away and I can quit without Firefox crashing.

I kept restarting the firefox browser or restarting my computer, trying to make it my default browser. I have lost on how many times I kept trying. But no matter what I do, it still continued to have Safari as default browser. Even when I did the system preferences of having Firefox being its default browser, it still didn't work. Either there's a bug or something else. I need to know how to fix this or I will lose my mind..how can I make it default if it won't let me.

When going to a site with FF, 90 which has partial secure information FF still allows access even though the site is not completely https. this should not be allowed HTTPS only should work if the site is completely compliant with HTTPS.

The example site is https://www.brampton.ca//en/online-services/pages/bramcams.aspx

If you click on one of the camera images with "https mode in all windows only" set, no image is displayed and the icon suggest HTTPS but the site is only partial https.

With "https mode in all windows" no configured you get the secure lock icon with the exclamation. see enclosed.

Using Firefox on a iMac, and the display randomly zooms in when the only input is moving the wireless mouse to the right slightly. I have found no way to return to the normal display without closing out of the Firefox browser, and re-opening. Zoom may be nice for somebody, but never when their is no apparent means to return to the normal display after it was inadvertently triggered for some unknown reason. This is annoying enough to consider utilizing a different browser......

I'm on a brand-new macbook pro with M1 chip and have had trouble with firefox since day 1.

Many websites point-blank don't work. the crown currently is taken by patreon, which only shows me a white/blank screen after auto-loggin. I could access the site when I was not yet logged in, but every since I logged into my account: blank page. and it's not like I can log out on a blank screen. also, since patreon needs you to be logged into to access the content...

other annoying things: Netflix sends me an error message after loading, so I can't watch anything on firefox. It worked fine for like 1 day after I got the new macbook, then it stopped and I had to switch to safari to watch anything.

on Twitch, I can view, but the message input for the chat is just gone, the chat is there, I just don't have any way to type anything myself, though I am logged in and everything. again, switching to safari, it's back and I can interact in chat just fine.

I have firefox version 90.0.2 running. Mac OS Big Sur 11.4 is the operating system.
