I am facing a strange issue where the Browser doesn't load the website for a minute and shows server error. However, this behavior is not specific to any website and the server error shows randomly. Sometimes the browser loads the website normally while other times it shows server error. Please check this screencast: https://jmp.sh/jEu4D9k to understand better. So, I initially tried to open calendly.com and it didn't load despite my multiple reload attempts. However, when I tried to reload it after a minute then it came to life.

I have been facing this issue for many months and I tried almost every solution I found on Mozilla community pages like Resetting Mozilla, Setting No Proxy, Turning Off IPv6, DNS Prefetching Changes, Turning On/Off hardware acceleration, Uninstalled Mozilla and Installed a fresh copy, Changed to Mozilla Developer Edition, etc. but no luck. Please note that the other browsers are working fine and don't have any issues.

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?

I can't open or create facebook accounts with any browser. Why? Even as soon as creating a new facebook account and nothing is posted, I am not obey their community rules. I do nothing strange and peculiar things. For example, First Name: Myo Last Name:Tun DOB:28/12/1978

Nothing is out of facebook community standard. But I can't use facebook with any browser. Why?

With respect, Myo Min Tun, Myanmar.

Firefox Developer Edition downloaded 89.0b1 tonight. When you choose Submit Feedback in the help/about form it goes nowhere. Actually to a "coming soon" page for ideas.mozilla.com. Is that so you won't have to field complaints about the "improvements" in this version? Because I have several complaints.

From last night, when I open Firefox, a blank white screen keeps appearing. Other browsers work fine but whenever I open Firefox this happens. I'm currently running Firefox on safe mode. Any solution other than uninstalling Firefox? The screen is fully white, no close button, nothing. Just plain white.

So Firefox suddenly and without asking just changed its look into something absolutely... No words can describe level of my disgust, so I wont fill this post by angry ranting.

Is there a way to get the old look back? (preferably without any downloads needed, cos at remote desktops that is not always an option)

Please, don't force me to use Chrome. I hate that browser, but they at least had decency to create skin, which makes it look like Firefox. The normal one, not the new diarrhea all over the screen one.

Я использую портативную версию Firefox. До последнего обновления всё работало хорошо. Но на этот раз я не могу использовать свой старый профиль на новом Firefox. Это делает Firefox для меня совершенно бесполезным. Я всё ещё надеюсь, что этот баг будет исправлен, и будет найден способ использовать старый профиль на новом Firefox.

Since Firefox 89 (maybe one or two releases before) *.localhost sites are not accessible, but those sites are available through other browsers or tools (Postman, Chrome, and Edge). Localhost is an Nginx server mounted on WSL2, so it’s IP does not correspond to 127.0.0.1 which is what Firefox thinks (about:networking#dnslookuptool).

There is no Proxy enabled. I also deleted the site settings on Firefox, disabled IPv6 and prefetch with no result.

Hello there!

I noticed that I get bad internet speeds lately. The provider advertises it as 1 Gbit / 300 Mbit connection with 300 Mbit / 100 Mbit garanteed speeds. I measured download speeds below the garanteed speed with the Ookla speedtest site. It turns out that I get the bad speeds only when I use Firefox. When I try it with Chromium, or with the new Edge browser which is another Chromium based browser, I get speeds which I still not really satisfied with, but this is another story and these speeds are seem to be realistic, and these measurements show values above the garanteed speeds. Now the strange part is, I also get the same bad speeds with Chromium based browser while Firefox is running! What is even more confusing, let say I run a test on both Chromium and Edge with normal speeds, then I launch Firefox for a test I get roughly the same numbers. Now if I leave Firefox open and I run tests on the other browser speeds start to drop and show the usual bad results. Then I run the test on FF and I get the same bad result. Then I close FF and I get the normal speeds on the other browsers. I took around 30 screenshots of these tests and uploaded it onto my google photos. I put the link above:

link text

I'm really confused and I have no idea if it is Firefox or a Windows thing, but I also run these tests on Firefox developer version, and it behaved the same way.

Don't hold your thoughts back, if you have any idea about what is going on, or perhaps you know the answer to these issues!

How can I open a new window when clinking a site in the dropdown from the address bar? Can I edit the sites in the address bar dropdown?

Hi Firefox In one of the updates I lost all my saved passwords. I responded "no" to access the saved passwords in one of the updates, afraid of giving some external hackers access to them, not knowing that I would lose them all. Is there any way to get the lost passwords back? Is there any files on my hard disc where these are stored? I hope that you can help me.... With Regards
