I am facing a strange issue where the Browser doesn't load the website for a minute and shows server error. However, this behavior is not specific to any website and the server error shows randomly. Sometimes the browser loads the website normally while other times it shows server error. Please check this screencast: https://jmp.sh/jEu4D9k to understand better. So, I initially tried to open calendly.com and it didn't load despite my multiple reload attempts. However, when I tried to reload it after a minute then it came to life.

I have been facing this issue for many months and I tried almost every solution I found on Mozilla community pages like Resetting Mozilla, Setting No Proxy, Turning Off IPv6, DNS Prefetching Changes, Turning On/Off hardware acceleration, Uninstalled Mozilla and Installed a fresh copy, Changed to Mozilla Developer Edition, etc. but no luck. Please note that the other browsers are working fine and don't have any issues.

Subject says it all. "How to revert to 'browser.tabs.ontop=false' functionality in Firefox 89.x?" I hate the Proton layout where tabs are now positioned at the top. I want to revert to what I had before — via an add-on, I think — because the new style creates visual dissonance. I HATE the new style. I want a layout that does not do my head in. I do not care that someone(s) in the development team thinks tabs.ontop is better; it is not better for me.

Hello, it has been some time now. I'm using Firefox 89 on iMac. Some sites' pages become grey and you don't know what that is until you use another browser and find that it's the accept all cookies question on every site you go. Problem is that sometimes you don't see that button and the page becomes grey, it's somewhere maybe but you can't see it and can't click it. How is that possible? That happens evens if I change the settings in cookies management in security and privacy.

Hi since I updated Firefox last night, I can't seem to use the search bar anymore, I'm talking about the usual one, the search bar in the middle of the page under the Firefox globe. As soon as I type the first letter in this search bar, it writes into the adress bar, and nothing is displayed in the search bar at all, it stays empty. It's like the only option I have now is the adress bar, the search bar is useless and though it's ok for an adress it is not for a proper research. I wonder how to sort this out. Thanks for your help !

I've lost all my history prior to the current date. I think yesterday too, I only had the days history and nothing else. This may have started with the new firefox update, but I'm not sure, I wasn't paying attention. It's not in my settings to delete history every time I close firefox. All my bookmarks are still there, its just a problem with my browsing history. It seems like the "recently closed tabs" keeps better track of the days history than my actual history tab. I'll probably lose todays history tomorrow. Not sure why this is happening~~ help

Firefox's onboard spellchecker needs to go back to college, or probably high school! Every day I have several words with the dotted underline, telling me they're not words, or not spelled correctly. However, when checking the dictionary, I confirm that the spell-check feature is wrong, and I am correct! I don't want to disable it completely, as it does let me know when I've made a typo, which I can quickly correct, but it's a pain in the butt to keep having it say something's wrong with a word, and there's not... I honestly can't believe it can be that hard to use a source that's accurate, when it's something on everyone's screen that uses Firefox...

When I try to change my password, it makes me log in, which I do using my old password. Then it makes me authenticate it with a code it sends to my email, which I do. Then I get to the change password screen, enter my old password, my new password, and my new password again to confirm. But it won't let me save it because it says "incorrect password." I know it's not the incorrect password, because I just used it to log in.

Because of this terrible 89.0 update I've had to start using Chrome, and I hate Chrome. I cannot get any videos to play in Mozilla anymore. Youtube doesn't work, Tumblr videos don't work, Twitch videos don't work, even the Tenor gifs on Discord won't show.

Yes, I have cleared my entire history of cache and cookies for all of these websites, and it does not fix the problem.

Nothing will play. I hate this. Please, Mozilla, fix this so I can go back to using the browser I actually prefer.

If anyone else is experiencing this, or has found a solution, please let me know.

For starters, I want to type my search in the larger, lower search bar, but more often than not, what I'm typing shows up in the smaller search bar that is higher up on the page and not on the bar where I'm typing. That is annoying.

But even more annoying: whenever I start to type what I want to look for, a drop-down menu appears with lots of suggestions for me, and those suggestions hide the lower search bar. As soon as I type one letter, the drop-down menu appears with lots of guesses about what I want. I don't want suggestions cluttering up my page ~~ I just want to type without all of that clutter. I'd leave an added image, but it won't let me take a screen shot of what I'm talking about.

Is there any way for me to disable the drop-down menu with suggestions? I HATE IT! Just let me type what I want to find!

I am constantly reloading tabs because I need to use the TotalSuspender addon to control 40+ concurrent tabs across 8 browser windows. With this new update, the Reload Tab option in the tab context menu has changed to New Tab (which is useless to me as I need to use the + menu to access containers). How can I edit this context menu and simply remove the New Tab option?

NY Times now won't load images (there's now a hold-to-see button; image & headlines vanish when you let go) on either side of the firewall & YouTube blacks out their link icons & the right column recommended / loaded-for-sequence play videos on the right column whether you're signed-in or not. Background images are now blacked out on some sites. None of this ever happened to me until I upgraded to FF 89.

Why is this? How do I stop it?

The array of Mac settings, FF settings, site settings is dizzying as we all know, which makes sorting out where the problem might lie a bear w/o help. Things worked great through 88. I allowed FF entree to simply install each new version. No prob. Now this. 89 is clearly a complete overhaul -- I've seen scores of comments from folks left aghast at these changes with no clear, comprehensive tutorial of 1) what exactly FF did & changed, 2) why FF did it & most importantly, 3) how to return which sections / settings to what you wanted & felt comfy with & which you're just stuck getting used to. Configuration ability is a huge aspect of computer living. That FF info alone would have lessened the heat I'm afraid you've been taking.

Anyway, back to mine... any clue as to how to reset whatever it is that needs resetting to drop this blockage? Many thanks for the assist!

I have an older imac. It works well but I can't open a lot of files/applications or even reply to emails on updated hotmail version. My os is 10.2.8 and I am using 2.0.0.20. My OS can't handle later versions. I can't buy latest upgrade from MAC (snow leopard or whatever latest is) because my computer not compatible with higher/newer upgrades. I want to use my computer but be able to have hotmail work and open pics etc. I don't know what to do.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Today is when I can no longer reply with hotmail, they ask me to upgrade to newer but need higher firefox to do so.
