After years of successful near daily use of https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/communities/space-weather-enthusiasts, it now partially loads and the following message appears, “This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page.” It may take several tries before the page fully loads.

What can I do to correct this problem?

Thanks.

in settings I have turned off all enhanced tracking I could find but apparently it doesn't keep the browser from blocking stuff. I have to go up to the address line and turn it off there. I'm getting sick to death and if I can't stop this enhanced tracking I'm done with firefox. Before you say I need it, the browser is already set to delete all cookies etc and never remember history when I close it.

So how can i stop firefox from enhanced tracking stuff even though nothing is checked under the Custom box in settings?

Firefox obviously couldn't care less about users when it comes to making things user-friendly. What are users supposed to do in order to sign into their account? I don't need to enable two-step authentication, so why are they forcing me? If they think it's necessary, what is "my authentication app"? I don't have any authentication app and why do I need it to sign into my account on my PC??? Where do I get that authentication app? Is it really so hard to include a link or at least a name of that app?

Please assist... if nothing else works, I may have to uninstall and reinstall. I hate to do that though.

Hi, I see that Print Preview is gone, but I figured out how to deal with that by setting the scale in Print mode. However, I have noticed just in the past week or so, that no matter how the scale is set, the web page will NOT print properly. I tend to print mainly receipts for online purchases and recipes from various sites. This is now impossible. I've done the troubleshooting and refreshing to no avail - there seem to be no manual print settings for Firefox. I've had to resort to taking a screenshot and pasting it into a blank Word document, which of course shows all the webpage extraneous stuff that I don't want to see. Can you help?

This is a weird one. I would appreciate help. Please read carefully before responding....I am not a newb

Connected my new XPS laptop for the first time to my monitor. Everything looks fine (Windows 10, Chrome, other programs) EXCEPT for Firefox. In Firefox, all the text looks grainy, obviously not right. I disabled all my extensions, REFRESHED/RESET the browser, with no improvement.

But when I opened Firefox's troubleshooting mode, the browser immediately improved, became crystal clear. Also, when I took a screenshot to post here, the screenshot of the text appeared crystal clear as well. So it's definitely not the monitor.

Again, I've refreshed Firefox, and turned off all my extensions. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Still seeing grainy text. Troubleshoot mode says it turns off "extensions, themes, and custom settings" --what else does it turn off?

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks, s.

Hi all,

since I set up my blog I am sometimes & very infrequently experiencing the problem that either the style sheets are not supported (see attachment), or I am getting an error message to the effect that the address of my blog can't be reached. I already posted in the WordPress forum, and a user took a look at my blog, but couldn't replicate the error. So I came to the conclusion that this is maybe an issue with Firefox. My question: Can anybody replicate this error, and may--if possible--be post a solution here?

TIA,

Claus

Note': Such problems do exist when all add-ons disabled and in safe mode Firefox (by "refresh firefox" option).

When Firefox is started, an advertising window would occur. The hijacked address: https://winxuan[.]jd[.]com/?cu=true&utm_source=kong&utm_medium=tuiguang&utm_campaign=t_1000623798_&utm_term=19dca519301545a6b711007896b3b333 hijacked address

Also, Ctrl + Shift + N was hijacked to the same window.

The window is strange: When I click the "+" button to open a new tab, the new tab directly opens in the previous window.

Perhaps something in Firefox itself was maliciously modified, I guess.

I am using 88.0.1 (64-bit) version Firefox on Win10.

Within the last week, I have been unable to view posted images sent to me from apparently only the USPS website. Images embedded or attached to other emails have not been a problem. I use Yahoo (AT&T) as the mail service. This issue does not exist with other browsers used - Google, Edge or Opera. It appears to be only this particular combination of browser, email client and website. I have done all of the suggested tasks including re-installing Firefox. Apparently both Firefox and the USPS updated portions of their software in the last week or so. Also note that I am not tech savvy. Thanks.

I got an email with a .docx attachment, and when clicked attachment I can view in FF.

Downloaded, and clicking file and open in FF ends in endless loop asking to open, if FF selected. Seems like mime type not being detected and processed from FF directly but does from webmail.

Same action with a PDF, image files works great.
