When trying to login to Netflix I keep getting it can't load the page because "Something Went Wrong. Sorry We having trouble with your request. You'll find lots to explore on Home page. |NSEZ-403 " It's only when I try and sign in. I've cleared the cache & cookies, and restarted Firefox multiple times, but still get this message. I also tried Chrome and had same problem, but don't get it with Safari.

Hello everyone, here is my problem:

I can't log into Twitter from Firefox, I am using the latest version that is available on OS X Yosemite. I can log into Twitter from other browsers like Chrome and Safari. And whenever I put my login credentials it just resets back to the login page, it doesn't say wrong password or anything, it just resets the page. Also, I have looked around a few topics related to this and a few related solutions such as clearing cookies and cache, and editing the about:config option that I forgot the name of.

Thanks for the help!

This should be a simple process, as I have done it before on other computers - but the icon is only in my dock as a "?", which I click on , and then it opens up to the Fox/World icon. As soon as I shut down the computer - the Firefox icon disappears.

Pretty much what the title says. I try to load Youtube, and when the initial page loads, it automatically tries to sign me in. I'm not sure why, but it can't sign me in, and gets stuck in a loop. I don't have the patience to see if it eventually fixes itself, especially when I can sign in just fine in other browsers. The same thing happens whenever I try to sign in to my Google account, since Youtube is linked to Google.

Ugh. Is what describes my thoughts on this new, flat, blocky, metro-esque user interface. This latest update is fine, go ahead and make the browser as fast as you want but why change the interface? Why? Youtube did the same thing and it at least has the option to change back. And thats my question. How do I change back to the old UI??

REAL full screen.

Why is it so difficult in this version to go true full screen? Having the tab and address bar visible doesn't satisfy the definition of full screen. I have looked around forums and in preferences and it almost appears as though Mozilla doesn't want to make it easily accessible. Why?

I am using Mac OS 10.10 with FireFox 30.0.2 as my browser. I was making calls OK on Goggle Voice through my G-Mail account. when I ran out of credit. I loaded additional credit and tried to resume calling. However, I kept get getting the following error message "Please download the voice plugin to make a call". Following the provided link lead me into a blind ally. Tried downloading a voice plugin and reinstalling, but no luck. Tried closing Firefox and reopening, but again no luck. There are no problems when using Safari as my browser. calls go through just fine.

Can't figure out why it worked just fine and thenstopped after laoding addtional credit.

I like Firefox. I'm running 33.1.1 on a year-old MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5. Here's the issue: I have noted that my MacBook Pro will begin to heat rapidly, and the fan will turn on - usually within 60-90 seconds of opening Firefox. Here's what I did so far: I scaled back the version of Flashplayer - still no difference. Then I started Firefox in "safe mode", and the problem did NOT re-occur. I restarted Firefox - Add-ons enabled, and the heating/fan started again. I "reset" Firefox, and it still occurs. I started it in "safe mode" again, and the problem does not re-occur. I have one add-on: AdBlock. As for plug-ins, they are all set to "Ask to Activate"

I thought at first that it was the AdBlock add-on, but this was not the case.

The webpage where I most frequently encounter this is nytimes.com, which is set as my homepage. If I move off that page into something random, like a Wordpress Page, the issue stops: the computer begins to cool and the fan turns off.

This has not occurred in Safari with nytimes.com loaded as the webpage. I left it running for 10 minutes, and no heat, no fan.

Is there a fix for this? Anyone else experienced this?

In Version 29 of FireFox the "folder" or "link" icons of the bookmark toolbar are stuck VISIBLE.

I simply wish to hide/delete the icon, showing only the text as I had before. The icons are basically meaningless and I don't need them to be visible.

Please suggest the correct path for adjusting this.

Thx.

"The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: 11373612934950299921" (with a different number each time)

I've cleared my histories, cache and cookies. My Firefox updates itself.

Going to other sites is fine.

I've spoken to the company, they don't know what's happened and are not having this problem themselves or with any other customers.

Which administrator might it be referring to? Can anyone help? (I'm not sure whether to click on 'Share Data' below; let me know if this would be helpful.) Many thanks.

Entries in /etc/hosts should have the highest priority. Also, I've tried every recommended solution by modifying settings in about:config.

It has been a long time since I have used Firefox (got a Macbook, and for some reason just used Safari for a long time), so please forgive me if I am just missing something in the Firefox settings.

Anywho, I have Firefox set up to not remember my history because I like the privacy it offers. I think it is odd that I have it set up to delete my history, yet when you go to "History", it keeps a list of all my closed tabs... Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of having the browser not save my history?

Is there a way to prevent Firefox from keeping this list of my recently closed tabs?

I ran 2 different versions of Linux Firefox from a Linux CD and Firefox version were not able to play HTML5 from Youtube. Youtubes test shows HTML5 not available. The version of Firefox was 61.x

Why would it not play as I expect HTML5 in to Firefox? Linux support seems to think a update is required but that should only occur if Firefox itself is dependent on the operating system.

I know there are a variety of solutions posted here to this problem (like deleting xulstore) but Firefox recently (v55?) stopped remembering my window sizes and positions on restore. I thought it was an add-on problem like Classic Theme Restorer or SessionManager or TabMixPlus but I tried with a brand new profile with no add-ons installed and it still is displaying the same broken behaviour: all restored windows are restored to the same stock size and position and new windows open with that same stock size also (even if they are opened from windows whose size I have changed).

Anyone know what is going on? Is this a recent regression?

Recently, my Firefox stopped automatically filling in login credentials in sign-in forms.

If I double-click the user/email field, it will usually give me a few recent options, but not the one associated with the domain I'm visiting.

- Happens for EVERY site, including this forum - I'm not in private browsing mode - Not using any privacy restrictions (form history is set to save, cookies enabled, etc.) - Haven't accessed about:config in a while, didn't change anything there - Don't have a master password set

Firefox version = 55.03 (latest stable 64 bit release for Mac OS X)

This may have happened when I updated Firefox, I'm not completely sure.
