I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

Local TV Station Radars and Bing maps will not load anymore. However, the weather channel radar does work. Weird. Running Firefox 90.0.0(64bit) on Win 10. Tried deleting all cookies and cache- no joy. Tried safe mode- no joy. All Radars and Maps work in Edge, but not Firefox. What else can I do?

I've noticed I've had a number of new Firefox updates recently. I've also noticed it takes much longer to load my initial web site when I log into Firefox. That web site is my head page, MSN. It now takes much longer to load that site than before. Is it possible these updates have caused the problem? How can I see what is causing the lengthy wait time for my head page to appear. It takes much longer than it used to. Appreciate input into the issue. Thank you.

I recently reinstalled Firefox after doing a full Windows reinstall on my PC. Since then, my bookmarks are not displaying on the bookmarks toolbar. I've "refreshed" Firefox from the control panel, rebooted my PC, and reinstalled Firefox. I've also moved the bookmarks from the toolbar folder in the bookmark manager and then put them back. Any suggestions?

Hi all,

I am doing this online course and all lectures are online videos using Wistia platform. I have recently installed Linux Mint 20.2 and latest version of Firefox but the videos don't work. Page loads fine except the video where only a large grey box shows with no controls. This was also an issue when I was using Linux Mint 18.xx but at least it worked in Opera which I was also using at that time. Now it doesn't work in either Firefox or Opera. is this perhaps an HTML5 issue? Don't think Wistia are able to offer any support and neither is my course provider. Their response was 'this is weird, works fine on our computers'.

thanks in advance for any assistance

      • Sincere apologies. Just found the answer !!! When I copied the link I picked up a space added to the link <}:-( Can't see how to delete my original question - only edit it ***

Up until now all my saved bit.ly links worked fine when I put in the short link: e.g. bit.ly/HfdSfGrd

But now with some I get: Something's wrong here.

This is a 404 error, which means you've clicked on a bad link or entered an invalid URL. Maybe what you are looking for can be found at Bitly.com. P.S. Bitly links are case sensitive.


Any suggestions as to what has gone wrong and the cure?

I get this recurring error when I access this site: "https://nikonrumors.com/". The issue comes and goes. May work fine for days/weeks.

Here's the kicker: MS Edge & Google Chrome do not have this issue. When it isn't working with Firefox 90.0.2 (win10), it always works with Edge & Chrome, like now as I post this.

I'm on firefox 90.0.1 on Mac OSX Big Sur 11.2.3. When I try to delete a site certificate that I have (that is about to expire), it appears deleted, but when I open the certificates page again it reappears. When I restart Firefox after deletion it reappears. When I delete cert9.db from my default profile after closing firefox, and then reopen, it still reappears. When I uninstall Firefox, delete the default profile folder from App Data and the Mozilla and Firefox folders from my caches, it still reappears (I also deleted the update folder).

I am doing sync between this mac, my phone, and another computer, but I ONLY have bookmarks, Add-ons, and history. Might the sync be also syncing my certificates?

Help/tips would be appreciated.

I've been using site https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite for years to log in to AOL email for years and now, with Firefox v90, it takes over 2 minutes to load. It takes only a couple seconds with the Edge browser. I've tried troubleshooting mode, a refresh and a complete re-installation without any improvement. This never happened in previous versions of Firefox.

Any help is appreciated, Gary S.

I'm experiencing 404 errors of which do not occur in the previous version. Here's what the console shows...

Source map error: Error: request failed with status 404 Resource URL: https://MyWebsite.com/assets/vendor/bootstrap/css/bootstrap.min.css Source Map URL: bootstrap.min.css.map

I tried several things to try and isolate this issue, but all to no avail. The file does exist, and loads in the previous version of Firefox.

Any help would be greatly appreciate.

I've been watching various video streamers (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) without any issues and then without warning first Peacock's site returned an "incompatible device" error, then Netflix, Hulu, and another service all returned outdated browser errors (see attached Hulu error screen). My basic system info (from safe mode):

   Application Basics

   Remote Processes: 6
   Enterprise Policies: Inactive

A recent kb described this exact problem but assured that upgrading past version 88 would resolve it

[to play videos from streaming services...]

so I'm out of ideas.

I have searched and tried every change / setting I can find to disable the automatic updates of Firefox. I am using Firefox because I use to have control over the browser and it was tracking / spying on everything I do like Chrome. Having Firefox automatically update without my permission I see as no different then a virus and spy ware. I am in the middle doing some work and have to stop and loos everything I am doing because you pushed an unneeded unwanted update. This is not acceptable! I do not need some company that thinks they know what I should have on my computer. That is why I don't use Windows. I don't need some corporate suite telling me what is best for my computer.

How do I turn off automatic updates and all / any nag messages.

I'm posting this as a question because other ones on the topic are closed for comments

Anyway, I seem to have found the solution - sync clipboards using ClipIt (http://clipit.rspwn.com/) or some other clipboard manager

My case - hopefully FF devs find this useful: 1. Paste works - I paste screenshots, text copied from terminal, and other stuff 2. Copy text from FF page, or hitting a copy button on a page, works only partially - I can paste in other GUI apps but not in terminal

   The snippet does appear in ClipIt. When I select it, it becomes available to paste in terminal

3. Copy text from FF address box works - I can paste anywhere

The recommended solution from FF support is to "reset", which means "factory reset" - this doesn't solve the problem and kills all yous addins, bookmartks, settings, etc. FF support stop suggesting stupid solutions!

I have also played with the settings - there was something there wrt copy/paste - it worked for a few hours

My guess is that Firefox is doing something wrong when placing things in the clipboard. Placing in the wrong clipboard or maybe you should place it in multiple clipboards and please make it configurable in case you screw it.
