Five days ago I opened an email in my Yahoo that was suspicious. I stupidly opened the file and nothing seemed to be there and I deleted it. Then early this morning I got a message from Amazon that said they were closing down my Amazon account because of what they saw inside of it and warned me not to open the file. I did not open the file. Later, when I returned home, and opened Yahoo, everything on the top of that page was in Spanish. My emails are in English.

Hi,

I encounter an issue when I try to download a file from drive.google.com

I get an error page with the following message :

In french : La page n’est pas redirigée correctement

Une erreur est survenue pendant une connexion à doc-0o-6c-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   La cause de ce problème peut être la désactivation ou le refus des cookies.

Translated : The page is not redirected correctly

An error occurred while connecting to doc-0o-6c-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   The cause of this problem may be the deactivation or refusal of cookies.

I searched online and it happened to others so I tried many things : - deleting the cookies.sqlite from the profiles folder in appdata\mozilla - repairing mozilla firefox - completely uninstall firefox and re - install after deleting remanent files

Nothing works. Using another browser I don't have any problem downloading any file from google drive. Info : Firefox 80.0.1 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:80.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/80.0 Windows_NT 10.0 19041

I hope someone can help me here .. Wish y'all a very nice day

How do I prevent Firefox from loading each page twice when using containers?

The problem has remained consistent through several Firefox updates, a clean remove and reinstall of Firefox, and even a reinstall of Windows 10 to try and correct it.

Login credential saving and prefill has been working great and synching across devices extremely well for quite awhile now. Very impressive.

Unfortunately, I have encountered a website where credentials appear not savable. I verified the domain is not listed as one that should be excluded from this process. I also tried the solution described at this link which involves saving a javascript as a bookmark, then using that bookmark in the course of logging into a site where credentials are not being saved.

I am wondering if you can verify for me that this domain cannot have its login credentials saved by Firefox and if possible, explain why this is the case. The domain is washingtontimes.com, the signin link is in the upper right corner of the page if you go there.

I recognize this hard to check if you do not have an account with the site in question. My hope is you can see something to explain what I am seeing. This is a big ask, so I want to express special appreciation for any assistance or information you might be able to provide.

Thank you.

A folder in Bookmarks disappeared AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Every now and then Firefox loses a Bookmark folder. To make matters worse, I can waste a lot of time trying to find it and get no where. I have better things to do than trying to find lost Bookmark folders! How can I easily find the very important Bookmark folder quickly? Undo does not help.

I'm having trouble switching tabs. I'll try to click on a tab to switch to it and nothing will happen. I'll wait a while and nothing will continue to happen. It tends to be the tab next to the one I'm currently on. If I switch to a different tab further away from the one I want to go to, it sometimes let's me go to whatever one I go to.

Hello. I am having the same issue as another user, but they flagged their question as solved so I'm making a new one just in case. I can't login properly to YouTube, only in Firefox, even after clearing cache and cookies and disabling add-ons/running safe mode. I can login to my Google account, view my playlists and recommended videos (although the main page with recommendations only shows 5 lines of videos and when scrolling further is not loading). I can't make any edits,

for example add videos to the "Watch Later" playlist, that require a login. When I click login, Google shows the "405 error "The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/browse/edit_playlist." That’s all we know." or with other URL, depending on the action taken. What can I do? Thank you.

I am running Linux Mint Mate 18.3 on a fairly recent Dell i5 processor with 8 GB ram. When I try to log on to Sling TV, https://watch.sling.com/browse/my-tv, I get the message: "Sling TV is not supported on Ubuntu browsers" (see screen capture).

However, if I use Chrome or a couple of other browsers the site comes right up and plays any video I chose. I've tried this on several of our computers running various recent Linux Mint builds and get the same result. So the issue is apparently with Firefox, not Linux.

I've tried disabling any extensions that might block access (adblock, no script, ghostery, etc.) but that doesn't make any difference.

Firefox does work with most other streaming services - Netflix, Amazon, Google, etc. Widevine is installed. Any suggestions?

.....I've used This browser for a number of years now with no major issue. Now...it's acting up and I'm incredibly unhappy. I've had issues for 6 weeks +/- now. This is now an ongoing/daily issue and it's causing problems. I'm about to change browsers. (I just updated Firefox to 80.0.1 (64-bit) in the hopes this would fix the problem, it didn't.) .....I started having an issue approximately 7 weeks ago with Firefox, it was working fine before this and had for quite some time. I will be in the middle of doing something and have to pause/shut down/log off the computer and deal with something else. When I come back, sign back in, then open Firefox - the installation has changed it's format to an Eastern European language. [I, personally, don't speak or read any Eastern European languages.] I will go into settings, check the language set up is still in English American, I will click on Language Preferences, add English Canadian, then delete English Canadian, check it's back to English American. Restart the Browser and go back to what I was doing. I'm now doing this 2 to 4 times a day. It's getting old. .....What can I do, not do to fix this issue.
