My wife and I are both suddenly blocked from opening a fav website: https://www.freedomconsciousness.com/

We now get a 403 Forbidden webpage (generated by Wordfence) instead.

Ditto when using the utube webpage, then in the About tab, trying to reach the website that way.

Trying the Mozilla technique of clicking on the lock icon ... I get both a secure connection message and a not-secure-connected message. Nothing I try after that affects anything. What to do???

Firefox unexpectedly quit, open tabs lost when MacBook Pro's charge died. After charging, did restart since Menu button to access History was missing (only menu bar visible). It returned, but unable to restore closed tabs (as I've done in the past) - History shows it to be "empty." I've spent hours searching Mozilla Support...can anyone please help? These 8-10 tabs must be somewhere!

Hello,

I would like to know why all of a sudden video clips, some web sites and my online banking I get "did not connect" Security Issues, or expired certificates. I don't have these issues on any of my other browsers. I am inclined to believe they don't exist. I can log into my online banking but the page with my account data is blank.

I have a bookmark on my bookmark toolbar, that when I open the bookmark has no highlighted star to allow me to choose to remove it. I open the entire bookmark list and it doesn't even show in the bookmarks list. How can I delete this off my bookmark toolbar? It's like it doesn't exist but it's front and center showing up. It does work and go to a valid web page. But I don't want it on the toolbar. And can't find a way to get rid of it. I've cleared cache, restarted, updated, etc. Nothing works.

I've been having serious log-in problems, as well as 'action' problems when visiting the Gab 'social network' site. I'm 'kicked' almost every time I attempt to post, 'like', and 'comment'.

I've attempted to inquire to the gab staff as to why this is occurring. I've received comment that this is a 'mozilla' issue and that 'mozilla doesn't like gab'. I pointed out that these problems aren't exclusive to my use of the Firefox browser. But I do use Firefox as my browser of choice.

It was suggested that I clear 'cookies', browse in 'anonymous' mode, not use the 'dissenter' plug-in', etc.

I explained that I clear cookies after every session - everywhere. That these problems happen when I'm in a session and the cookies shouldn't be a problem. I almost always browse in a 'private window'. And I never use the dissenter plug-in but always log-in at the site.

I've attached a three screenshots from a few times I had a 'kick' and a forced log-in when in session. Please advise as to what may be occurring here. I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Hi,

In the recent weeks, I am unable to use LinkedIn properly. After a short while of use, parts of the display disappear. When I click on a link, I am taken to a completely different place that I clicked on (seemingly What I see and where FireFox thinks I am are not aligned) and the issues keep adding up. I have ensured that FireFox is up to date. I have tried to refresh the screen. I have restarted it over and over again. Nothing has stopped this issue from reoccurring.

My Mac OS is up to date and I have no issues with LinkedIn on Safari or Chrome. But I do prefer FireFox and would hate to have to change my default browser because of this issue.

Any thoughts, suggestions and ideas are greatly welcomed.

Thanks in advance, Sally.

Saving cache

Security settings for my bank account allow three choices for verifying identity: every time I log in, every time I open the account, or just whenever the bank needs to know. For the past decade, the third has been in effect. But starting in September, even if I click on option 3, every morning I once again have to prove identity.

In discussing the issue with the bank I was told that it was because I clear my cache every night when I shut down. I said I had been doing that since 2015 without a problem - why the change? The bank tech support guy asked if I accessed the bank web site through Firefox, and I said I did. He said that, being an open source software, Firefox issues far more technical updates than any other browser, and one of the recent updates must have changed the system of how cache and cookies are cleared.

I then went into Firefox Preferences and it appeared that I can allow specific websites to continue active while other websites are cleared. I tried to do that last night with the bank website, but to no avail. This morning I had to, once again, prove identity through phone message.

Just to confirm: since 2015, I have made no changes to my computer system (iMac and MacBook), kept the same Internet service provider, used the same anti-viral software, and cleared cache and cookies daily. All that time, I could open my bank account daily without proving identity each time. Les than two months ago, that suddenly changed. The bank says it's likely the browser. Any thoughts?

Any ideas? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I have been building websites using Firefox for a good 10 years now, but over the last year or so clearing the cache has become more and more frustrating and it's making Firefox unusable for developing websites.

Basically, I am making edits to a website's style sheet and uploading it and the new style sheet is not then being loaded in Firefox.

I have spent the last hour+ looking for a definitive answer to this problem.

I am using both methods I know for clearing cache

1) click on the burger and go to Privacy and Security / go to cookies and site data / click clear data / leave "cached web content" clicked on (switch off "Cookies and Site data") / click clear

2) hold command / shift / R

Most of the time it seems both these methods don't seem to work as the browser won't load the new style sheet.

I know the style sheet has uploaded as when I test the site in Safari (I might have to use the Empty Caches function once) and the new style sheet loads straight away.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, or may be I am missing something fundamental that will cure this problem - all I can say is, it is very, very, very annoying - and really wastes time when you're trying to work.

Is anyone else getting these problems and is there a quick and easy way to be ensuring the cached css file does not keep loading.

btw I also used a private window and was still getting the same problem.

I like using Firefox and don't really want to use another browser as they are rubbish in other ways, but feel like I'm getting to a point where I have no option if I don't find out how to solve this problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards

D

Hello,

I just switched to MacOS Big Sur, and while doing so, I decided to do a clean install. Before doing so, I synced my Firefox accountt, wanting to save all my bookmarks and favorites, etc. Now when I signed in to Firefox after the installation, my data is nowhere to be found, and it seems like the current, clean Firefox with no bookmarks etc. has been synced to my Firefox account. Is there a way to restore my data from a previous sync file? I have a lot of data I need for my projects saved up.

Thank you.

I am using an iMac running OSX 10.12.6. Firefox version 82.0.2.

For the last couple of weeks I have found that I am often unable to open many links on websites while using Firefox. I click on the link and nothing happens. If I hover over the link, I will see a URL in the bottom left of the page.

I have not found any particular pattern for what links work/don't work, it seems to be pretty random.

I suspect this is something simple that I just am not aware of. I'd really appreciate any ideas to get Firefox working correctly again. Currently I am being forced to use Chrome on many of my usual sites where Firefox will not work.

Thanks in advance for your help!
