Hello, I have searched the internet for a solution to this, basically what is happening is I'll go about browsing, as you would. then I click on a link, maybe type in the website and it says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at (website) If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try: Try again later. Check your network connection. If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web." I did notice it's quite random, most websites work but every 1 in 10 I'd say I get this error, then I refresh the page and it loads.

I've changed my DNS, Removed my firewall, and reset my firefox and none of that worked, please help.

youtube video of it in action:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioKKYKnrniQ

basically it just doesn't load then loads when I refresh it.

Good day,

I have noticed that my Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar sometimes requires 2 clicks to load Reddit.com. This is the only Toolbar Bookmark to exhibit this behavior. Every other bookmark I have loads the page after a single click of the icon on the Bookmark Toolbar. It appears the browser makes no effort to reach the Reddit site (could be an issue with Reddit.com, but it really appears FireFox just does nothing after the first click).

I first noticed this several months ago (maybe as long as a year ago), but assumed I was just missing the button. I have since ensured I carefully single click directly on the icon, no dragging, yet it still sometimes does not load Reddit after the first click. Very often it requires 2 clicks, as the first was totally non-responsive.

I have many Bookmarks on the Bookmark Toolbar that I use regularly. Reddit is the only one that exhibits this behavior.

How can I correct this behavior?

Thanks for your time, John

How can I replace the hourglass icon in the url bar, without setting the the ui.prefersReducedMotion to 1, which will then increase the url bar enlarging when opening a new tab?

Bottom line: I want no hourglass icon while loading and disable the "expanding/enlarging" URL bar

Any help will be much appreciated!

I am using firefox 84.0.1; I have my home page set to bing.com

I am not smart enough to know where this stuff is coming from, but I have a lot of spam that I never want to see on my Bing homepage. Examples:

- Bing Homepage Quiz - Get the new Bing wallpaper app - Join "Give with Bing" - Male Bing yours - transform your hompage...

Does anyone know how to get rid of this bloat? Some of us have never made it to the high speed information superhighway and are still stuck on the data dirt road. Thanks

I have Bing as my home page and I sign into my Microsoft account (to get rewards etc). This was working fine until about a day ago. Now the Bing home page comes up but there is no Microsoft header, menu, account information at the top of the screen; https://www.bing.com.

I can go to the rewards page manually and it shows that I am signed into my account. Of course this shows up correctly on Chrome and Edge (new version). I am using version 88.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 (latest updates).

I tried refreshing Firefox, I pressed Shift before Firefox started and selected Refresh, tabs and addons reappeared, went to the Bing home page, same thing.

I also tried turning off tracker protection, clearing cookies and data for Bing (but the refresh should have done that), still no joy.

Any ideas?

I have 2 problems which have just started occuring when I try to access websites, 400 Bad Request messages and pop up window asking for a user name and password for normally open sites.

An example of the Bad Request message occurs when I go to the Guardian webpage https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2012/jul/11/top-10-pembrokeshire-walks which displays normally but when I try to follow one of the links which should take me to National Trust pages I get the 400 Bad Request message. I have used this website before with no problem but this has started occuring on this and other sites over the last week. I also get the message when I try to go to http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/ from the bookmark I have used for many years.

The other problem occurs when I type www.nationaltrust.org.uk, I get a pop up window which says Authentication required - Mozilla Firefox http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk is requesting your user name and password. The site says: DSL-3782 Usaer name Password.

Cancelling the pop up causes 401 Unauthorised message If I give it any usename and pass word it comes back the the blank pop up again except when I enter my DSL-3782 router username and passwood which gives routers Internet status page with no errors or messages.

I have tried clearing caches etc. with no effect.

These problems also occur on some other websites and on my laptop.

Has anyone had these problems? What is the cure?

Dear all! Unfortunately I had to reinstall Windows 10 Pro on my notebook, due to problems with accounts. I downloaded the latest version from Microsoft homepage and installed it without problems. After installation of firefox it started without any problem, but all pages remained blank / white. So Firefox is running, but it seems that it has no access to the internet and cannot show any site. Starting Edge - no problem. I think, that microsoft installed something to block non Microsoft products! Any idea what to do?? kind regards Helmut

Hello, sorry for my English. I would like sometimes to launch Firefox behind VPN. I can indeed do it by using options manually, it works perfectly. All along my search, I have found that a private mode launcher can be made ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window). Is there any similar instruction, but for a Firefox manual VPN option activate ? Thank you for your attention.

I've been having issues with double-images being pasted on Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit). I find it annoying because I end up deleting the second image on the site that I'm working on.

Initially, i thought that the keyboard that I'm using was a bit sensitive however, when I do paste of the screenshot that I've taken via other web browser (Chrome, Edge, Opera), it only pastes 1 image.

I've been reading some archived articles but nothing was mentioned about a fix on Firefox (or unless I've missed it). Is there something that I need to disable/enable on the Settings page?
