Good evening. I have run the Ookla speed test through Edge and my download is 212.94 Mbps and my upload is 11.76 Mbps and uses the Spectrum Syracuse Server. Running Spectrum speed test on Edge registers Spectrum Syracuse as the optimum server and download is 236.2 and upload 11.6. Both are using my Spectrum server in Syracuse, NY.

When I run Ookla through Firefox I got 227.17 down and 11.63 up. Spectrum's speed test through Firerefox's Syracuse server 231.8 up and 11.5 down.

However for a while earler this evening when I ran both programs on both browsers and both through Syracuse's servers I was getting downs of 0.0 to 0.7. I reset the modem and router and still had low speeds but shortly after I got the readings I wrote in the first two paragraphs.

What would be the reason for this? Anything particular with Firefox? Something I should look out for in the future? Partially a curiosity while the other part being proactive.

Thanks for anybody who can take time to answer.

During class today, Firefox unexpectedly crashed on my Windows 10 PC after downloading a pdf file from my History teacher. Now, when I try to open Firefox, a transparent box quickly appears before disappearing again, not opening Firefox. I have yet to find a solution that has worked.

My employer uses the G-Suite at work. I use Firefox on my company computer and on my personal computers.

On the afternoon of Jan. 20, I lost access to Google Calendar. It only shows the dates and a crawling blue ribbon, as if it's trying to load my calendar and failing.

I ran some tests with my company computer and my personal laptop. Here's what I found:

  • I can access all the other G-suite components (Gmail, Contacts, Google Drive) from Firefox on both computers.
  • I have the latest version (84.0.2) on both computers.
  • I can access Google Calendar (and the rest of G-Suite) using Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Sounds like Google implemented something in Calendar that doesn't get along with Firefox. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Every time I install an update my Amazon password no longer works. And, I mean every time. This has been going on for the last 6-12 updates and I am forced to go into my Amazon account from another browser and change my password. I know the password being used in FF is correct because I use LastPass. This doesn't happen with any other browser. I've loved FF for years but this is totally unacceptable and I'm starting to like Edge. Any suggestions.

I belong to a teacher's union and the state website is suddenly blocked in all my browsers. I am clueless as to how to fix this. It makes no sense to me as I changed nothing except to update Firefox browser and Windows. See the site is not blocked anywhere in the options. Message I get is: "Access closed Site psea.org is blocked, because it belongs to blocked categories: Parked Domains If you think that site should not be blocked please send a message to network administrator

Can anyone help me?

All the letters in my display are incomplete - like fractured or chopped up - missing parts of the typeface, regardless of font. I copied my bookmarks to a file, uninstalled and reinstalled a new copy of Firefox but it didn't help. I had to use Internet Explorer to get to the Mozilla file. It was choppy too. My Windows 10 wanted me to use Microsoft Edge & I noticed the fonts were not broken up in Edge. Is Microsoft trying to steer me to using their browser & causing a defective display in other browsers? How do I copy my old bookmarks from the file to the newly installed Firefox. I looked in the Help section & Google and do not have the option it tells me to go to in the Library on my new version.

It seems as though there are hundreds of webpages of settings between the three sites (Hotmail, Google Groups, Firefox). I've checked everywhere I can find, but if there is a particular page or setting to fix this, I cannot find it or recognize it.

Hotmail wants to examine my email settings, but I am uncomfortable allowing anyone access, and I don't think the problem is there. Google Groups tried its best but had only the one suggestion that did not help. I'm left with Firefox. I have changed some settings over time, but I don't remember them all, and nothing stands out when I look for a solution.

My Firefox browser is the most recent version, 84.0.2.

Any help you can suggest will be sincerely appreciated. Diana Penhaven

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.ebay.com/sch/ebayadvsearch/?" on this server. Reference #18.f924c17.1608206592.152fe04c

Ever since then I receive the same error message when I try to load eBay. I talked to someone at eBay and they suggested it was related to interference by a VPN program.

Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks.

I find that images generally show on webpages such as the front page of a news site. However, when I click into a specific article, the image which is usually near the start of an article in a lot of cases does not show (so it's not a "always never shown" situation); it's as if it's been removed from the webpage syntax i.e. there's no white space section showing something is missing. One example (of many I could include!) is https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/phonics-revolution-the-new-sound-of-reading-in-the-nations-schools/7A5UVZ55NAOJEQACLKELCNEU6U/ I verified there are images there by restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled (which starts Firefox in Safe Mode), and also by opening in another browser. So I went thru and disabled *all* add-ons and restarted Firefox. Images still don't show! These missing images only show when I run Firefox in Safe Mode.

In the back of my mind, there is/used-to-be an option to limit the size of images on a page(?) but I can't find any option now. I have also refreshed Firefox (a number of times; including a total de-install, reboot, re-install) but the problem remains. .. What am I missing? I'd like to be able to see these images.

Thanks.
