Using new computer and Firefox settings synced from previous computer. Two major issues started when using the new computer: When opening links in new tab (manually by right-click link and chose option to open in new Tab) nothing happens. The URL appears in the tab address line but the web page doesn't load. Pressing enter doesn't fix it. Copying URL and opening new tab, and pasting URL, doesn't load the page either. This can occur when first open Firefox, or can be after some time.

The other issue is Gmail often showing "Not connected." and retrying. The computer is connected to the internet, and can access web pages in other windows in Firefox, or in Chrome. Google apps, such as Keep, also exhibit unable to connect to Google. Have to close Firefox to fix this and can often return shortly after signing into Gmail again.

Have tried disabling extensions and add-ons, resetting preferences and tab settings, clearing temp files and cookies, resetting Firefox, uninstalling Firefox and re-installing. All to no avail.

The previous computer doesn't have these issues.

Areas of info fade out in a program app I've been using for over two years; seems to be just since the last firefox update

As described above I'm now seeing section descriptions in a program app I've been using in my work successfully over the past two years. Now, all of a sudden, the section titles in the program are faded gray almost to white, which makes entering info (not to mention eye strain), really difficult. Just wondering if this might have been something that occurred with the last Firefox update.

I've tried adjusting the screen resolution but it makes no difference. See the screenshot with this message.

Hi,

I use Mendeley Web Extension to pull articles and other things from Firefox directly into my Mendeley library. I will usually rapidly read through the PDF file online before deciding to add it or not. For some unknown reason, Firefox blocks the use of Mendeley on PDF file, for security reasons, and I can no longer add them to my library. Most references are only available as PDF files making the add-on completely useless. Is there a security feature that I can disable to be able to use the extension again?

Kind regards,

Mathias

I have been trying to load a particular website. https://metrobyt-mobile.com I can get it on other browsers. The funny thing about it is any other website comes in on Firefox. There is no problem with getting to any other website with Firefox. It is this specific website!! I can guess but I don't know that maybe that server is not responding when the translation from words to numbers is not working or is broken in some other way and does not respond.

I strongly dislike the color theme of my browser. The irredescent pink, orange, blue, etc of icons literally nauseates me and I can't get back to my original color theme. I also have a black screen, instead of the white one I prefer and images appear solarized, rather than natural, even in skyping with family.

When I start to type my login info, it will show previous emails or phone numbers that i have typed before. I have Auto fill turned off and customized my privacy so this should not be saved. What is the issue here? Cant find an answer anywhere. I have cleared all data, cookies, and history, and the previous logins are still there on each website.

I remember long ago on an ancient browser there was an option in the print dialog to print a table of the links on a web page. Very useful for a page which has a lot of in-line links but no 'references'-like list of them all at the end. This can painstakingly be done by copying and pasting from the source code, but... years later, do we really not have a better way, like we used to??

When I change the brightness of my computer while Firefox is open, the changes are not saved when I close Firefox. For example, if I lower my brightness from 100 to 80 while Firefox is open, once I close Firefox, the brightness of my screen increases back to 100 after a few seconds. Similarly, when I reopen Firefox, my brightness drops from 100 to 80 as that was the setting the brightness was set at when Firefox was closed. This does not happen with any other program, especially other browsers, that I have on my computer. Do any of you experience or know of this problem and do you have any advice on how to fix the issue?

(I have tried booting Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode, refreshing Firefox and reinstalling Firefox. My computer is also up to date on the latest Windows updates. This issue was not always present with Firefox and only began recently, within the last two weeks.)

Weird issue. Trying to screenshot an Amazon page but image does not download. Try copy image and I can paste it into MSPaint.

Screenshot image download works for other Amazon pages and other sites like noaa.gov, and places image in downloads folder as expected. Only Amazon for a specific product: https://www.amazon.com/Phonomenal-Authentic-Vegetarian-Vietnamese-Noodles/dp/B08Z5MK39L

Why just this product?

I am trying to add a secondary email address (a Zoho email address) to my Firefox account (my primary is a gmail address). I receive the verification code in zoho email. I enter the verification code into the required space for Firefox to verify and accept that I am me and that's my email, and I get an error message that the code is invalid.

    I did this twice.  I checked that I entered the info correctly.  I entered the code within the 5-minute timeframe.  Both times I got the same message - the code is invalid.  It will not verify my secondary email address.  
   Very frustrating.

On some Globo pages, the Reader View does not return the text content of a page. It does return content, but I don't know from where.

It does not happen on every page, and I can't figure out what the difference is between pages that work & pages that don't.

Example: https://gshow.globo.com/novelas/pantanal/noticia/pantanal-zefa-conquista-web-ao-discutir-com-guta-por-causa-de-tadeu-confira-reacoes.ghtml

I'm attaching snippets of what the web page shows and what the Reader View shows.
