When I login to Hulu.com, I am returned a white page that says, "403 Forbidden nginx" And the address in the URL bar is, "https://auth.hulu.com/web/null//null/welcome". However, if I change it to http://hulu.com, I am presented with my homepage. I shouldn't have to type hulu.com into the address bar. It should take me there, automatically when I click "Log In". This is happening in Firefox on both a windows 10 machine and a Linux Mint machine. why?

The strict protection mode in Firefox has been really great for me so far. My understanding is that it creates a separate "cookie jar" for each website. Knowing this, I was wondering if Facebook container is still needed to stop Facebook tracking. I never visit the Facebook website and I don't have a Facebook account. I also use Ublock and Privacy badger, if that makes a difference.

I updated Win 10 Pro to version 20H2 and now Firefox will not start. No error message; no appearance in Task Manager. Here's what I've tried to no avail:

1) Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times, including manually removing all remaining Firefox files (including my profile folder) after uninstall.

2) Tried to start Firefox with administrative privileges.

3) Clean booted Windows and tried to start.

4) Turned off Windows Firewall and tried to start.

5) Tried to start in Windows Safe Mode.

6) Extensive Google searches to try to find a solution.

Oddly, Microsoft Edge will not start either, but Chrome starts and works normally.

This is but one example of why I have held off as long as possible from doing major Windows updates over the decades that I've used Windows.

Suddenly a week ago or so, Disqus comment boxes no longer appear. I reported it to a website that employs Disqus for commenting. They have been investigating for a couple of weeks with no response.

There was a question asked on this forum in 2013 that describes the Subject, but nothing since. Running on Window 10 Home.

This problem does not occur on my Windows 10 machine with Edge or Chrome browsers.

Nor does it occur on Ipad or Android browsers.

Thanks!

I have reinstalled the OS on my lap top and after a successful login to my account I am unable to sync everything from the account. The logs can be found in: https://controlc.com/8afabe84

I have the same account set on two different devices (My desktop PC and my android phone, this device I am trying to sync is the third one) and both those device were synced long time ago.

I tried with another profile which I am using for my work related stuff, still no success. First I tried syncing on Ubuntu 20.10 and then installed on Ubuntu 20.04(currently) but it is without success.

I need to sync to this device the bookmarks, extensions, saved logins, etc... Currently I do not have my other PC to export this stuff, please help.

Some of the thing in the logs:

Every time I type this into my windows run dialog, %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, so I can search for it, my computer totally shuts down!! Firefox had a meltdown of some kind a week ago where every time my pointer touched the open window it locked everything up totally. I finally had it looked at and the person had to uninstall firefox and reinstall it. I was trying to recover my old tabs from before that but now it keeps doing this. Any help?

Hello, I didn't open Firefox from the 8th, I closed it normally as I always do with no worries since Firefox always launches with all my tabs+bookmarks saved and never remove cronology by itself. Guess updating must have done something, so I've read on the net and then here about some probable solutions, did find some files like recovery.jsonlz4 and .baklz4 along previous.jsonlz4 and sessionstore.jsonlz4 and saved them up in another folder, putting them back in the profile I've had on Firefox, but that didn't seem to have helped at all, Firefox still launches with nothing on and I don't know what to do anymore, so I've registered to ask for support here. Thanks.

When i click on the google maps icon (google uk home page>dots in top right hand conrner>google maps icon)or type google maps into the search field then click on the google maps link I end up on the Sheffield Hallam University log in page (a bookmark from a while ago). This has started happening in the last few weeks.

If I use Edge then everything happens as expected and google maps opens.

I have tried refreshing firefox and disabling add-ons, neither works.

Using Windows 10 home V20H2, upto date firefox.

I was wondering if there is a way to hide the titlebar (tabs, bookmarks, url, extensions, etc.) like fullscreen mode does while in windowed mode. A hotkey toggle would be preferred. Currently I am using some old CSS I found online but it's got some pretty glaring issues such as search suggestions being cutoff. Supposedly this was possible back in 2011 with an extension and something called "zombie mode" but the extension is no longer available (and most likely wouldn't work anymore). Thanks.
