All routes to access gmail accounts on Macbook air do not connect. If I type "gmail.com" as URL the bar reverts to "about:blank." If I open google and click on "gmail" or try to access through the apps grid the "G" icon flicks but I'm not taken to account. I can still access the base account through phone or chrome so the issue seems to be through this browser.

I've been using Firefox browser for Facebook and other online purposes for several years. Over much of that time I periodically (several times per week, minimum) get a small pop-up box, usually while I'm on Facebook, which is headed "Apple wants to make changes. Enter your password" The "USERNAME" box shows only my first name, John, (which is my admin password for the laptop) and the "PASSWORD" box is empty. No indication of what changes Apple wants to make, so I've never put my password in, and when I hit "cancel" I have to cancel three times before it goes away, only to show up sometimes within minutes, or sometimes days. Until today I'd not been able to get a diagnosis from Apple, but their help person, after a screen-sharing session today said it doesn't come from Apple and she suggested I contact Firefox Support and ask about it. So I'm asking. The screen shot below shows what it looks like, although I closed Firefox before i took this screen shot, just to see if the box would remain, and obviously, it did. Any thoughts as to whether this is somehow coming from Firefox? Thanks, John Jessup

I am unable to sign up for a credit card. The application form does not come up. There is the possibility that it is being blocked, perhaps by a cookie, perhaps by a security feature in the Browser. How do I turn off whatever is blocking the form from popping up?

My firefox browser just updated on both of my computers, with this new current update I can NO longer drag and drop attachments(Images) in outlook email that I have with the company I work for. This feature saves me so so much time since I am in graphics and photography and my emails usually have a lot of attachments. So, why did you take this feature away, I use it ALL the time...please let me know what is going on here or if there is a way around this, I can still load attachments by selecting the paperclip option, but it adds 4 to 5 steps...I love the drag and drop option, can you help me because I really like firefox and want to stay with this browser. thank you, Mark

When I try to log on to hmnow.com, all I get is a white screen. I worked with Hallmark support, but they couldn't figure it out even though I have a paid subscription with them. I've rebooted my Mac and it says I have the latest Firefox version installed. This has gone on for weeks. I've had no problem with any other website.

I did a refresh yesterday and lost my passwords. I have another computer where the passwords are functioning and I have the "old file" but I don't know how to use it. I clicked on the old file, but just came up with another file called EP7i0nok. It doesn't do anything but it just opens up and it doesn't have anything to restore data.

It doesn't crash every time, but when it does, if I restart and try to save image/video/etc. again, it will usually keep crashing a string of times before it finally allows me to download without going "Not Responding" and at which point I have to force quit.

I've tried browsing other solutions but nothing seems to work or be applicable. I'm running Firefox 78.15.0esr (64-bit) on an El Capitan 2010 iMac.

Thanks for your help!

I am no longer able to log in to eBay using Firefox. I am using Firefox 78.15esu bc I have an older Mac that will only support up to Mac OSX 10.11. I was able to use eBay up until this morning when the site asked me to log in again... and verify that I am indeed a human through the hCaptcha checker. The checker cycles between identifying horses and lions... and every time, I seem to pass but then comes the message "Failed to pass Captcha, Please try again." I can access eBay using Safari and Chrome. Right before the failure today, the rendering of the eBay pages was odd... needed 3x the screen width to see the whole page. eBay says that the problem is on the Mozilla side of this issue... mostly because I can use a different browser without problem. I think I am in agreement with them. I don't really want to use a different browser but I will bc I like eBay, too. Please advise.
