Hi. I am constantly getting this popup (see attached) when on the Nine.com.au site (using Firefox 87.0 on Mac OS 10.14.6). It is only occurring on this particular website and only seems to happen when I'm using Firefox as my browser. I've gone to the same site in both Chrome and Safari and the popup doesn't appear. FWIW, the TV network that this website it affiliated with was recently the target of a (suspected State orchestrated) cyber attack - not sure if that's just coincidence and completely unrelated to the issue I'm having: https://www.9news.com.au/national/nine-network-hit-by-cyber-attack-threatening-news-services-nationwide/c653fe12-a5c4-4da8-9a33-b902f1325eed Obviously I haven't clicked through on the popup, I just close it each time, but it's getting annoying and I can't seem to get rid of it. Thank in advance.

On numerous web pages, the text description of a symbol obscures other info on the page. For example, the eye symbol to toggle on/off a password visual in a sign on block is obscured or covered by the word "SHOW". How do I remove these text descriptions?

When I go to firefox preferences and then go to "search," I try to click on the arrow below "default search engine" but nothing comes up. When I try to search in the address bar, it takes me to websites named after the first word I typed. When I tried searching in a separate tool bar, I'd type something, hit enter, and nothing would happen. Please help, this is very annoying because whenever I want to search something I have to type google and then type my question in on the actual google website.

When on a website, filling out an application,etc and they ask me to provide an email address, even though I type it in the box provided it doesn't register. This has started to happen within the last 2-3 weeks and it prevents me from filling out forms and applications that ask for my email address or even an alternate email address. The box will simply light up and keep telling me to provide an email address and therefore won't allow me to finish the application and/or form. If I go to Safari, I can successfully accomplish the task. So I know it's something in Firefox that's causing this to happen. Please help.

Browser sites open half screen instead of full screen

In Firefox on desktop Mac:

After a search, then clicking on a search result from the list of options, the selected link always opens as a half screen instead of the normal full screen I've always had in the past. I then have to manually spread the half screen result out to full screen.

Clicking on any bookmarked link, they still all open normal full screen.

Don't have the problem in Safari but I prefer using Firefox.

This problem suddenly came up after many years of normal 'full screen' Firefox operation.

How can I make these search results open as a (normal) full screen in Firefox - like they always used to do?

Not very computer savvy if someone can give me 'Firefox for Dummies' assistance.

Hi comunity.

What is my mistake?

I'm looking forward to your reply.

Recently I installed an upgrade and since then I can't play youtube videos embeded on pages or straight from youtube. I get the message: 'Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.youtube.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.'

I also can't play videos from an online course I have been doing for weeks and a webinar series but at the beginning of the webinar series a few days ago I could. I'm now getting the message: "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported."

I'm having to use Chrome to access all these things and I hate Chrome. I'm not tech savy so please help.

Trying to install/run Firefox on new iMac.

Downloaded the most recent version. Clicked on installer icon. Dragged the icon to app folder. Seemed to install. Ejected installer. App folder shows only a 2k alias,,,no "program". Click app icon. Installation icon reappears on desktop and process starts all over again!!!

On old iMac the app shows as a 375Mb application!

Any help would be appreciated as I have no hair left to pull out.

PS: the iMac won't let Chrome run either. Says it can't be opened because Apple can't check for malicious software, even though install process verified the disk image!!!
