I'm an author/writer of cozy mystery/suspense/crime/thrillers and adventure short stories. I do a LOT of research and participate in online forums for background for my books and to build my brand. I have been using Mozilla Firefox for almost 20 years and I love it. But I may be forced to change because of the two serious problems I'm having. Explanations below:

  1. 1. There are certain regular sites I go to that require me to choose images to verify I'm not a robot or click on "I'm not a Robot" in reCaptcha. I can't because those images and/or the box for eCaptcha don't show up. They're just not there. I have to sign out and sign into Microsoft Edge which I absolutely hate. If I have to change, it will probably be Google Chrome.
  1. 2. Also, many of the sites I use regularly don't show up anymore. All I can see is text down the left side. None of the images are there and I can't tell where to click to go to different pages.

This has all been going on for months. I had hoped your updates would fix this, but they haven't. I don't want to change browsers, but I may have to because I MUST be able to verify my identity and be able to see some important sites I use regularly to post comments, etc.

I hope you can help me. I'm 85 and have absolutely no technological computer knowledge so please don't send me a lot codes because I would have no idea what to do with them. I pray this can be fixed.

I have a Dell PC and am using Windows 7, 32-bit.

Thank you, Gail S. Kibby White.

I have cleared all my history in every way I can think off. Then I set Firefox to not remember anything. I really do intend for Firefox to not track and log my browsing habits. After these settings it appears to fix the "New Tab" screen (it now populates with generic icons) but if you dismiss one of the generic icons, Firefox will immediately populate the icons with my actual browsing history.

This applies elsewhere, I imagine, but my current problem is "apple.news" links.

I get sent these links but don't use them. (No interest in being under surveillance by Apple.)

I tried to set them up in Multi-account containers, so that I can send them to a ghetto, but at least try to use them. I found no way to do this. (I also found the interface clunky and unintuitive.) (I did find how you set a domain there but redirection is long past by the time you can do that.)

(I'm happy setting the Windows registry, designing configuration systems for programs, and the like so making setting is not a terror for me, please don't answer as if I'm a dufus in that regard. Thank you.)

Where do I make a configuration setting to force these containers to do what I want?

My Sync is set for Add-ons (which Themes is a part of), Bookmarks, Options, across (5) Windows 10 laptops and (1) Windows XP SP3 desktop. Everything syncs perfectly in all of the devices except Themes. There is one same theme for all of the devices. However, the theme in the Windows XP SP3 desktop CANNOT be changed because none of the currently available themes function in Firefox 52.9, the last version that works with Windows XP SP3. Is this preventing Themes from syncing in the Windows 10 devices? I presently change to one same theme manually in each of the Windows 10 devices, but I am looking for a workaround to make Themes sync in the Windows 10 devices.

So what i've noticed lately is that when i play a video on youtube while on fullscreen, sometimes when i exit the fullscreen the screen goes black for a few seconds. In the meanting i can hear the audio being played in the background. After 1-2 seconds audio becomes choppy and then it completely stops and then my computer restarts. I haven't tested that with any other browser since i've been only using firefox for years. It doesn't happen all the time but i can happen randomly. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration but it didn't do anything. All the drivers are up to date. Anyone encountering the same problem? Any possible solutions would be more than welcomed.

NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

Thanks for reading

Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit; Windows 10 Pro

When Enhanced Tracking is Strict some websites lose functionality.

The only options seem to be.

    Disable Enhanced Tracking for that site

or Set Enhanced Tracking to Standard or Custom for all sites

So far, the frequented websites all seem to work with Strict except one and, for it, I would like to have it set to Standard rather than none.

If I am correct, let me know. if wrong, either direct me to instructions or just tell me. Yes, I have looked.

Thanks!

PS. My current option, for that one website, is to run Firefox in a separate Sandbox and set all websites to Standard.
