Was using my browser firefox, watching a yt vid and clicked to watch another vid and it stopped having network access. Confirmed firewall isn't blocking anything (even disabled it) and no proxy being used. Reinstalled 96.0 (was on like 95.X) no change --- update option in settings has no network access so I just downloaded it on another browser & installed (left the temp files alone) same issue.

This is a software issue with Firefox, not a computer issue. Nothing was updated or change on the computer either and it just stopped working while on youtube. Restarted PC, no change. Disabled a few exts like adblocker & no change.

PC is running macos 11.6, 96.0 firefox.

Thank you for any help.

Firefox now requires a refresh to use every time it's opened. If I don't it keeps displaying that every page I attempt to go to has an expired https. It requests that I contact the owner to notify them of the problem and to try again. It does not connect to any webpage without a refresh. I've attempted troubleshooting mode and without a refresh, it still does not work. The refresh only lasts for about 10-15 minutes before another is required. All extensions are removed and even just attempting to go to google.com results in the same problem.

Firefox Unable to play Prime Videos & Netflix Videos

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, and it's unable to play videos on Amazon.com & Netflix.com. Neither did the one before 96.0. I first saw this on Netflix.com and when the tech started asking questions about my operating system, I knew they had pulled a fast one. Now Amazon.com has done the same thing with Firefox. This browser should be hiding the underlying operating system, because it's not necessary. I can use both websites with Chrome and have no issue. The same version of Firefox is on my laptop, but it has no problems because that thing is on Windows 10.

I won't bother with all the nonsense written about troubleshooting, because this is strictly the functionality of those websites peeking under the browser to check the O.S. Firefox needs to fix this hole immediately! You're messing with my money now. Monopolies shouldn't be able to control our hardware like this; they're not paying for any of it.

Oh, my TV is having a problem with the apps, so I was forced to watch videos with my computer instead. My laptop screen is too small and can't have my booming speakers connected to it. My desktop monitor is 34".

Firefox will now only up with a window about one-third the size of my monitor. I cannot find any way to change it back to filling the entire screen upon opening. I don't mean the full screen setting, just filling it top to bottom and side to side. If I hover over screen size icon, I get numerous options, but none allowing me to select wide screen.

Dear Mozilla/Firefox,

I've been using Firefox over the last couple of months/years but I just can't get the restore recently closed tab shortcut (CTRL+SHIFT+T) to work on my windows PC.

Here's a (Loom) recording of me showing that Firefox does correctly track the history of closed tabs and that I can click on them to restore but the shortcut (which is also mentioned as CTRL+SHIFT+T) just won't work: https://www.loom.com/share/7048894683654dccb4926aa4dd09e6a6

What I've tried so far: - Check if the history is actively collected - No I'm not using private browsing - I've read another support thread to check "about:config" and in there check that "browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo" is set (in my case it's the default 25) - Disabling all extensions (which I don't think are any suspicious or weird ones but disabled just to check - see attached image) - Resetting Firefox through the windows uninstaller - Fully uninstalling (using Revo Uninstaller with advanced check) and reinstalling Firefox

Please help me because I'm about to quit Firefox for such often used feature just not working...

P.S. it's working perfectly on my Macbook and I'm running the latest 96.0.1 64bit version

I can send from iPhone to desktop no problem. But Desktop to iPhone never works. both are connected and synced. tried disconnecting and re-syncing, but still no. If i keep the page open on desktop i can find it in the Library on iPhone. but that's kinda long-winded when it should be much easier.

Desktop firefox shows mobile view of google and asana (+others) when browsing, but shows desktop view on private browsing.

Hi all, I am experiencing an issue where some site (such as google and asana) think I am on my phone. Other sites do not do this, but several that i use regularly do. I tried troubleshooting, and i noticed that when i use a private browser, google and asana look good on desktop, so that is why i think this is a firefox issue. Ive tried searching google and the knowledge base but all the searches think I WANT to view the mobile view on desktop (to check responsive design most likely), but I actually want to STOP seeing the mobile view on desktop.

NOTE - this seemed to happen right after I selected an ad to be hidden using the AdBlock extension on an article i was reading. i dont know if this is relevant or not, but i deleted the app anyway. This did not fix the issue though.

Anyone seen this issue before?

After starting Firefox. If I navigate to a page to soon it jumps back to the start page again (about:blank for me). Like it's restaring again somewhat. Just before the page is reste there seems like a windows opening in the bottom right but it closes before I manage to see content. Only add-on I have i uBlock Origin. Do you have any idea why this is happening. Is there some log I can look at or enable to see what is really happening? 73.0b7 x64 on Windown 10

I've had a problem on a particular page on my website that has resisted all attempts at analysis and fixing for years: the page renders in Western font in my FF browser (in all my PCs), whilst in a colleague's browser (from another country) it renders fine in Unicode. It also renders fine in Unicode on my PC when using Chrome, and Edge, and Opera. Only Firefox is a problem.

I would be happy if I could just tell FF to render every single page I ever visit in Unicode by default. But I have go to View > Text Encoding > Unicode every single time I visit this page.

For info, I'll paste everything in the page before the <body> tag:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <title>xxx</title> <base href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/admin/Gross_Profit_Reports.html"></base> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reset.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/text.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/images/favicon.gif" /> <script src="../js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="../js/jquery.stickytableheaders.min.js"type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script src="../js/sspextras.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="../js/common.js"></script> <meta charset="utf-8"></head>


Although we use <meta charset="utf-8"> now, we've previously had it as <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">, but that has been similarly unsuccessful.

I'm happy to make changes on the browser side in the webpage, but I really want to solve this. Grateful for any help.
