When I try to screenshot and download an image it screenshots multiple images instead. My OS is Windows 10 and I'm having this problem when trying to screenshot and download an image from Instagram. I right click on the image as I always have and it screenshots and saves multiple images instead. I never had this problem before updating to Firefox 88 and I've been using the screenshot feature for well over two years. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and I'm still having the same problem. The image I'm trying to save is the one on the upper right.

Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

Previously to a mac OS upgrade to 11.6.1, the browser worked fine. Now, nothing loads even though all the other browsers work fine. Pages just display "Secure Connection Failed."

When I am watching a TV stream on my PC; when I hover on (some) pictures or videos, a supremely annoying pop-up url appears at the bottom of my screen. I have some learning problems and can not figure out the 'userChrome.css' method. I can not work with long streams of multiple overlapping instruction. I am not tech savvy. I do not understand 'layers' and stuff like that. I can do the 'about:config' thing, if anyone knows whether or not if I can fix it from there, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks.

I believe this started with 94.0.2 but could be 94.0.1. Looking at various things in Easysnews.com, for instance thumbnails, the title for that item used to change from blue (Unvisted Links) to brown (Visited Links) and keep the brown color until I exited Easynews. Now it does not. In another case, looking at my list of favorite groups, the group name will turn brown as long as my mouse is over it but it will not stick if I select that item.

I am not using system colors and Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above is set to Only With High Contrast themes. I tried the other two choices but they really created a mess.

I have also tried deleting any easynews cookies to no effect.

Firefox recently stopped working altogether on my Windows 10 laptop for some reason & I don't know why. It won't load the start page, addons page, or ANY WEBSITES WHATSOEVER! I've never encountered this issue before. I've tried refreshing Firefox, uninstalling & reinstalling Firefox, tried deleting & replacing my old Firefox profile because I thought it might be corrupted. NONE of these options worked! It worked fine earlier today, but it hasn't worked since restarting my computer system this past evening. I don't know which details are relevant or irrelevant so I'm trying to be as detailed as I can in explaining my issues. Can anyone tell me how I can fix this? I'm DESPERATE here!

After the most recent update, currently on 92.0, the Minimize, Maximize, and Close buttons are invisible. They are still there and I can get the tool-tip if I hover over them with the mouse, but visually they are completely gone.

Any ideas how to fix this?

I haven't been able to update Firefox (Mac, desktop) since version 82 because all updates use a font I can't read. Websites are displayed correctly, but bookmarks, most Firefox preferences (including about:config), tab headings and search imputs are as shown in the screenshots.

Today I downloaded version 90 and it's still happening. Please see the screenshots of the Firefox welcome screen, and the font selections in the preferences. The version for the screenshots is a new, clean download using default settings, with no addons or bookmarks.

I don't know if the font is a real language or not.

I received a Yahoo email which contained a set of 33 images, all of which display correctly in W10 and (pardon the expression) Edge. Attachment 0 shows 1 of the 33 images.

Of those 33 images, I can see only 13 using W10 and Ffx 88.0.1. The rest are blank spaces. Attachment 1 is one of the blanks.

Attachment 2 is the URL for one of the blanks. Attachment 3 is an error message that I hope might help to determine what's going on here.

What am I missing? Do I have my Ffx settings messed up? I'd appreciate a nudge in the right direction...thanks!

Hi:

I installed a few days ago the latest version of Firefox on my iMac. I am noticing that when I open a new window in Firefox, a tab is opened and it shows Search Pulse. I looked it up and it appears that it is some kind of adware that is dangerous and is hard to remove. I looked up some articles and they all seem to be written by some vendor promoting a product for removal. I am very concerned asking for more problems than what I have as I am not a technical person.

Did anyone encounter this adware and if so what's a trustworthy product to remove it?

I have Norton and the free version of Malwarebytes on my computer. None of these programs caught the installation of this adware.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I hav been using my Gmail in Firefox with no problem until about 3 days ago. Now when I try to sign in to my account I get a pop up window which states “This browser or app may not be secure. Try using a different browser. Etc.”

I have tried another browser (chrome) and Gmail works fine, but I like working in Firefox. But at this rate I may dump Firefox and go to another browser.

I have looked through the other support group questions and solutions. I have tried them all and nothing is resolved. Clearing cache, clearing cookies, using a private window, managing data, using forget about this site, generating a new profile, disabling extensions, loading in safe mode, etc.

I have Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit). My operating system is windows 7.

Any other suggestions?
