Hello All, this is to inform you that my Firefox got infected with something causing an interference with my bank account. I could logon into the https site of my bank with my banking credentials. Normally I see my account status directly after the logon. In this case onla after a couple of seconds a message is popping up that because of Online Banking Frauds the procedure will change. The only way to proceed is to click on Next. On the next page credentials for a Demo Account are displayed. The only way to proceed is to click on Next again. Then I'm asked to enter a TAN for a Demo Transfer of 9215.54€ . I called my bank and they could verify that I'm still on their https and that if I proceed definitly transfer the above amount to an other bank accout. Bank IT told me that on their site anything is right and it must be an issue on my PC. I tried logons to my bank account with IE and Opera and don't get the fraud pages. With firefox I always are led to the "DEMO Transfer".

Did you expierenced something like that already?

when I type a comment on youtube, the text often "lags", the letters appear all together after a while, if I try to send the comment I get an error, and if I try to subscribe a channel I cannot, instead I get prompted to login while I am already logged. This is going for months, right now the only fix seems to switch to Opera... Can you guys provide solutions to this?

Hi, The vams.cdc.gov portal is just showing a blank page, the cdc site says that firefox is a browser to use and also says chrome,safari etc. I need to get on the site because I have to register my mother for over 75 to get the vaccine. I have a phone modem and windows 7. Trying to download either of the other browsers is a long long long download. Anybody know the fix to getting this portal working. I noticed that it uses the Aura framework ie window.Aura By the way the page source is there, and the title bar does show VAMS Portal, just the blank page though. Thanks for helping if you can.

Hi everyone! I am looking for some help on how to fix my problem. Yesterday, suddenly videos on Firefox stopped having sound and in one particular website (public television) videos stopped working altogether. These are websites that I use on a daily basis and have been using for months. All of these websites and videos work fine on google Chrome. I am using a desktop and Windows 10 and use DuckDuckgo Privacy essentials. These are the things I have done to troubleshoot: -restarted computer _restarted Firefox in Safe Mode -checked the volume mixer -checked the App volume device preferences on Windows -signed off my firefox account and logged in without an account -refreshed Firefox -Uninstalled and installed Firefox

On my laptop (Windows 7) everything still works fine as usual.

Any tip or advice will be much appreciated. Please bare in mind that I have a very basic computer knowledge. many thanks Poppy

Hello! On a certain adult website, all the videos play verrrry slooooly. YouTube videos play fine. And this certain site works fine when I try it with Chrome. I recently added a bunch of adblockers like Ghostery and Adblocker plus and Badger and Decentraleyes and HTPPS Everywhere. Is the problem with one of these? What can I do to get the videos to play at full speed?

Thanks in advance!

long story short, if I go on amazon.com it redirects me amazon.com.br without asking me, no pop-ups, no "amazon wants to know you location" it just looks at my IP and send me away, also, if I do something like amazon.co.uk it will prompt me for "would you like to be redirected to amazon.com.br?" and I don't want that either, if I could go to amazon.jp it's all the same for me

note: 1: I used amazon as an example, this happens with eBay, YouTube, Bing, reddit, facebook, PayPal, or any other website that is available on a .br domain 2: I don't want to use a VPN or any Proxy server, I'm not rich, I can't pay 129.99 a year for a browser extesion, and there are free ones, but they bring my 120Mb/s connection to a grinding halt 3: this is most likely my ISP / IP being broadcasting my location without my consent, while some websites do ask me to allow it, my IP most of the time will basically lay open on the table and tell the website "if you wanna look, it's there" 3.2: this is especially annoying with the advertisements saying stuff like "80% of gamers in [USER_CITY] love this RPG" and I'm like, really? a backwater christian town where only 20% of the population have TVs and 5% of those 20% have broadband connection?

in short, I don't want any websites to know where I am

When I use Firefox, the Criterion Channel won't feed the film to my TV monitor. The message denies access because I'm using an HDMI cable to connect the TV and laptop.

I get no such message when I used Safari and can view the film on the same TV monitor connected with the same HDMI to my Macbook Pro. Why does Safari work when Firefox doesn't?

Suddenly, when I try to login in to my bank website, I get that I have entered the wrong password, it sends me to a second login page and I have to re-enter the password to get in. The bank says there is a problem with too many cookies being saved but didn't know how to fix it in Firefox. I never had this problem before either with the bookmark or by typing in the address. This is the only site that I have this problem.

When Facebook updated their system a few months ago, running it on firefox with windows 10 on a pc crashes mozilla. It happens if you are logged into FB for some length of time (say an hour). I have no extensions operating just plain firefox. I turned on task manager inside firefox to watch what happened over time along with windows task manager. Within a half hour, FB is using high energy impact and just about all available memory in the system and filled the cache as well. Eventually it just freezes firefox and I have to kill the program go back and clear the cache and often do a complete refresh of firefox

In Firefox for Mac, when in fullscreen mode, moving the mouse curser to the top of the screen to show the menu bar covers the open tabs, address bar etc. I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug - in other browsers the tabs move down so that you can still click on them, which I much prefer.

Is there a way to have Firefox move the address bar etc out of the way when showing the menu bar in full screen?

I've attached a couple of screenshots to show the behaviour in Firefox compared to Brave browser (and I guess Chrome).

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, I saw a few similar posts but nothing with this exact issue.

Thanks!

When I want to save a bookmark, I usually go through "choose". It seems to give me folders sometimes only open to the first level, sometimes to second and third levels. This behaviour seems random. I want to see only the top-level folders, it would make saving bookmarks quicker. How to achieve this?

I have attached an image of what I see now under "choose"

I have the latest version of Firefox operating on Windows 10.

Ok, this is an annoying thing which keeps tripping me up.

Here is what Firefox shows me:

file:///home/me/Pictures/Screenshot%20from%202021-01-17%2020-44-04.png

Oh, great and there is no "preview" I can see. (I'll see what happens when I get to the post part)

Fine. But this is NOT what I am supposed to see.

Attention to the right of the input window is the (x) button.

Also clicking on the input fields, not much exciting happens.

This is what Chrome shows me on the same site:

file:///home/me/Pictures/Screenshot%20from%202021-01-17%2020-54-02.png

If I click on the clock icon (shown here in red) I get this lovely pop up.

Yes, I have the "default" ubuntu install of Firefox. Using .... Snap (or what ever it is called)

If I knew/thought on "DAY ONE" when I updated, I would have removed it and gone with the official installation.

I still can't find a clear (safe and easy) way to get rid of the supplied version and get the official one installed all the time keeping bookmarks, cookies, tabs etc. (That's another story.)

But is this something I haven't set in Firefox, or a ..... bug?
