All the letters in my display are incomplete - like fractured or chopped up - missing parts of the typeface, regardless of font. I copied my bookmarks to a file, uninstalled and reinstalled a new copy of Firefox but it didn't help. I had to use Internet Explorer to get to the Mozilla file. It was choppy too. My Windows 10 wanted me to use Microsoft Edge & I noticed the fonts were not broken up in Edge. Is Microsoft trying to steer me to using their browser & causing a defective display in other browsers? How do I copy my old bookmarks from the file to the newly installed Firefox. I looked in the Help section & Google and do not have the option it tells me to go to in the Library on my new version.

Recently, emails from Nextdoor dot come stopped arriving at my Hotmail account. At about the same time, a Google Group was trying to send me an invitation. The moderators received an error message saying a setting was blocking it each time they tried.

It seems as though there are hundreds of webpages of settings between the three sites (Hotmail, Google Groups, Firefox). I've checked everywhere I can find, but if there is a particular page or setting to fix this, I cannot find it or recognize it.

Hotmail wants to examine my email settings, but I am uncomfortable allowing anyone access, and I don't think the problem is there. Google Groups tried its best but had only the one suggestion that did not help. I'm left with Firefox. I have changed some settings over time, but I don't remember them all, and nothing stands out when I look for a solution.

My Firefox browser is the most recent version, 84.0.2.

Any help you can suggest will be sincerely appreciated. Diana Penhaven

Several weeks ago I tried the access eBay and got the following error message:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.ebay.com/sch/ebayadvsearch/?" on this server. Reference #18.f924c17.1608206592.152fe04c

Ever since then I receive the same error message when I try to load eBay. I talked to someone at eBay and they suggested it was related to interference by a VPN program.

Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks.

We have a web site which is working perfect with all other modern browsers except Mozilla's. For this reason we are redirecting the users ,who uses Mozilla browsers, to another page that is saying Mozilla Browsers are not compatible with this web site and please use another browser. But this is not a good user experience and we need help about this problem. The problem is that; on a page there are divs which are hidden by default (with css 'display:none;'),and when a user clicks on a related button, a javascript function named as showhide give response and show the hidden div by making the related div unhidden ( with js command document.getElementById(arguments[0]).style.display = "block";) or on next click ( vice versa with js command document.getElementById(arguments[0]).style.display = "none";) This is working with all other modern browsers except Mozilla's. We tested this situation approximately for 6 months with the most up to date versions of Mozilla but nothing changed. Now we are using version 84.0.2 64 bit but nothing changed. We will be very glad if you can help us about this problem. With our best regards

I want to use Google as my search engine. When I go to Google and type my search keywords into the bar, I get themessage that says, "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." The URL in the search bar is, "https://search-land.com/?pubid=30105&tid=1015&sid=10052&q=firefox.com&sig=2" If I allow, I end up with responses from Yahoo. If I do not allow the redirect, I end up with a blank screen.

I HATE Yahoo as a search engine. I have removed it as a search engine in the options for search, but I still end up there. I cannot get to Google. Can anyone help me with this?

Windows 7 Pro, Firefox, current, 84.0.2.

I've tried logging out and back in, I've cleared ALL history, cache, cookies, etc. I've tried restarting Firefox, no help. Gmail, Voice and contacts all show fine. This was working fine last night, less than 12 hours ago. System was shut down last night, and booted this morning, and this problem has occurred. Logged in via Chrome and calendar shows fine, so it's likely some probem with firefox. Hate to reset firefox and have to load all my extensions again.

Here are the extensions/Add-ons I have loaded. But bear in mind these were loaded last night, and have been loaded for many months at least, with no problems. AND, other Google site, gmail,voice, contacts all work fine.

Adblock Plus Bitwarden Don't Fuck with Paste Facebook Container Flash and Video Download Gmail reverse conversation Google Analytics Opt-out Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on (by Google) HTTPS Everywhere IDM: Youtube to MP3 Javascript Switcher Lastpass Open With Print Edit WE SingleFile

Below pic is what I see. Blue bar at top scrolls left to right continuously.

I've tried the Firefox reset/refresh option, exact same issue.

I'm even willing at this point to uninstall Firefox and reinstall from scratch, but how do I ensure ALL Firefox system modifications, etc. ARE removed?

HELP!

Thanks.

Please help a single mom with our personal computer in the house hold that is for school work only. It is on windows 7 and we need to COMPLETELY BLOCK/DISABLE ALL access to the youtube website. I can not figure out how (upgrading to the newest windows version is an IMPOSSIBLE option right now unless they've made it free, thanks to the circumstances created by COVID-19). Thank you in advance.

My google calendar will not load appointments. The page loads but the appointments never load and the blue loading bar at the top continues to refresh as if it is trying to load.

Things I have tried - Turned off all extensions - Ran firefox incognito (works if I clear the cache) - Cleared Cache (works only once)

I am looking first for a solution to the problem above. If I don't find one, is there a way to reload firefox and retian all the bookmarks?

I am running Firefox 84.0.2 on a Macbook Pro running Catalina 10.15.7. Since the new version of Firefox loaded on January 6, I have been having problems with how email from several vendors displays. If I call up Hotmail, for example, the page appears in teeny tiny type, so small that I have to pull the computer close to my face to read. And if I enlarge the page in order to read the left-most column, I can then only see the left-most column on my screen. I have to then scroll far to the right to find the actual message itself. I have tried the various "Display" options, but none of them have fixed this problem.

I switched over to Chrome as a test, and Hotmail is displaying normally there. So I conclude that there is some incompatibility between Firefox 84.0.2 and Catalina 10.15.7.

Any advice would be most welcome!

Thanks!
