I was not able to check my bank account in Firefox browser because, there are two pages to login through, one is for username, the second for password, but after entering password, and clicking submit, it does not load the page, it just sits there doing nothing at all.... I then tried it in Chrome browser, but it did the same thing, so I thought maybe the site was having problems, but a quick Google search for isitdownnow showed that the site was up and running fine. Next, I tried it in Safari browser, and it worked. After that I opened Firefox again, and tried again, but it worked this time. Can anyone explain this to me?? Thanks in advance!!

I search for a folder, usually by topic. Perhaps I'm looking for Buicks and find several bookmarks. Now I want to find the folder that it's in to perhaps find more cars. The folder might be CARS, AUTO, VEHICLES or whatever.

How do I search for the FOLDER?

Looking for this solution, I find several answers, none work. The start at the end does not show the folder. There is no way I know of to search for a folder. Help?

I deselect the setting "allow webpage to choose their own webfonts...", it solves the problem but it cause to switch to default fonts in web design tools I use (wordpress, elementor). Any suggestion of how to solve this? Thanks

Hi, Had to wipe my laptop and had a copy of me email, password and backup codes for Firefox and it would not accept them. So I have tried to log into the account and when it does not accept the password, I get the email message sent or resent message and nothing.

Not in inbox, junk mail and looked directly via web email. Does not even say account is locked or email rejected. Just stuck.

I have had to create a new account just to be able to ask the question. That verification email came through in seconds.

This is a complete pain as I have literally hundreds of bookmarks/passwords, many I use on a daily basis.

(Unfortunately, this was also the only system I had logged into the account on. Not on phone, tablet or anything else)

Hope there is a simple solution. :'(

The version of Firefox we have is part of a Windows 10 image that is built into the GP. When running updates they stick for about a day, but then they revert back the the old version of Firefox (I think it went down to version 50 or 60). Normally, it wouldn't be that big of an issue but many websites do not work properly when he browser is on an older version. Can someone tell me why this is happening and how to fix it? I can't keep updating the browser for people multiple times a week when it should only be happening every few months or so. We used to use Ninite to keep apps like this updated automatically but we don't have that anymore. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Wow... I just updated and am trying to use Firefox as my default browser yet again, however, yet again, it's RAM usage is ruining an otherwise good relationship. Why does this browser guzzle RAM so hungrily? I had to reboot it as I couldn't type any longer, without waiting every few letters before seeing them on the screen, and I've got 60 Gigs of RAM. But Firefox was using 22 of them!

This has obviously been an ongoing issue for years, both from my experience, and the 2,000 threads that come up in response to this issue. Come on guys, it can't be this impossible to create a functional browser that is more RAM efficient, what's the problem?

Oh, and it sure would be nice, given 2,000 results from my search, to be able to filter them by date. I'm using version 84, so threads dealing with version 50 or so, aren't going to be of much help...

The programm "Firefox.app" cannot be opened - after updating to Firefox 84 on macOS Catalina

I updated to Firefox 84 on my macOS Catalina 10.15.7 system. At the end of the update process to Firefox 84, when Firefox restarted, a pop-up appeared that some files where suspected to be ransomware. I choose some "quarantine" button, but then the restart stopped and macOS showed a notification "The program "Firefox.app" cannot be opened" (My translation from german).

This message appears if I try to start Firefox from Finder or from Dock. Launching Firefox from the Profile Manager (via Terminal) works. Firefox is executed with my profile.

The following actions I took were not helpful: - Re-installing the Firefox-App and my profile from a Time Machine backup - Un-installing and re-installing Firefox from the Mozilla site. - Starting Firefox with a freshly created profile - Re-installing Catalina from macOS recovery mode

In the system preferences' security tab Firefox is not considered as beeing harmful.

I'd be very grateful for some hints where to look for further actions. Thanks, Ingo

In Wordpress, the editor tool menu at the top of the screen normally sticks to the top of the page. But in Firefox, it will disappear or scroll up with the rest of the page. This is not supposed to happen and doesn't in any other browser we've tested.

Resizing and refreshing the page may temporarily work, but the problem returns.

Hi I recently switched to Firefox on my iMac and when I tried going to the Apple website to report issue with an App Store purchase, idmsa.apple.com, it just spins and spins. Works fine on Firefox on my iPhone. I've disabled add-ons and cleared history and set all security settings to allow everything, but the site won't load. Any suggestions what to do to get it working? thanks!

p.s. just tried with appleid.apple.com and it also spins and spins and doesn't let me login.

Yesterday I got a new Mac, running macOS Big Sur (11.1). Previously I was using Mojave (10.14.6). Now on Firefox a lot of pages fail to load -- they show a blank page. Among them:

https://web.whatsapp.com/ https://open.spotify.com/ https://www.nytimes.com/puzzles/spelling-bee Citibank (after the login)

Some of these pages do open in a Private window. However, I already cleared all my cookies and cache contents, and I still cannot load thes pages in a normal window.

Can you suggest what I need to do? Thanks!

ADD: When trying to login at https://profile.theguardian.com/signin, at first I got an error message saying to "make sure that Javascript is enabled". But now it just goes through, except that the site doesn't know that I logged in. And again, in a private window I am able to log in.

It looks like I should just do all my work in a private window now, which seems strange

It seems that my preferred width of the browser window on desktop is so narrow that some websites (not all!) seem to think I'm on a mobile device. And so they serve me the "mobile-friendly" version of the website instead of the standard desktop version. I can tell it's a "responsive design" thing because if I widen my browser window, the desktop-friendly version automatically appears.

Is there a way to disable this so that all websites are forced to always serve the desktop version of the website?
