On EVERY website i go to I get pop up ads or a new smaller page pops up and says "about blank" in the address field. They make the websites look different like they have to make room for ads. Also sometimes there is a hidden link that when I click on something it takes my to a whole other website.

Hello,


While trying to watch "big" mp4 files, I get the error: The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.


Smaller files seem to work fine. The problem seem to start around 3-4 GB.


Things I tried:

- Safe mode

- Refresh firefox

- Completely wipe and reinstall, the problem remains.


Since I was due for an OS upgrade, I upgraded to High Sierra. Fresh install (wiped the disk), fresh Firefox install, and the problem remains.

Chrome will load it up after 2-3 seconds. Safari gives the same error.

The file also works in all the players I tried: VLC 1.x, VLC 2.x, VLC 3.x, MPV, MplayerX.

So to recap: Fresh High Sierra install, fresh Firefox install (without sync - no addons), unable to read MP4 files bigger than 3-4 GB.

Help?

It would be easier to upload screenshots but after 5 minutes of the "working circle" go round I am thinking it does work.

I have a problem Two parts:

1. when go the Permission (by click the (i) preceding the site address it takes me to the Privacy and Security Page. Under Permisssion I find location and click settings. There are no sites listed and it will not allow me to search for a site. How do I find what is preventing or how can I prevent websites knowing or not knowing my location? Is there a global local setting I can not find? Previous searchable questions have incomplete answers or I not getting it.

1. A webite I use is failing gps location connection. I can not find way to see or change permission in Firefox mobile. How does one enable/disalbe Location and or allow GPS service? I don't have this probblem with Chrome or Edge so it is not the site. If it related to part 1, then I have just the one question.

Hi. I'm trying to log on to a particular company's website and keep getting the message :

"The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: 11373612934950299921" (with a different number each time)

I've cleared my histories, cache and cookies. My Firefox updates itself.

Going to other sites is fine.

I've spoken to the company, they don't know what's happened and are not having this problem themselves or with any other customers.

Which administrator might it be referring to? Can anyone help? (I'm not sure whether to click on 'Share Data' below; let me know if this would be helpful.) Many thanks.

Websites that were designed for earlier versions of Internet Explorer might not display correctly in the current version. However, you can often improve how a website will look in Internet Explorer by using a new feature called Compatibility View.

In the last week, I have noticed that a 'spam-like' web site opens when I click on a button in a web site I am using. The site I was in goes to the correct location, but at the same time, another sited opens and becomes the one on the screen. One that has opened is (https://www.365dayloan.com/?hid=12573004&n=24329&fname=&lname=&email=). Another was a game site. This is NOT a pop up; it is an unwanted site on a new tab. How do I stop these unwanted sites from opening?

I do not remember ever going to this financial site before. I KNOW that I have never been to the gaming site.

Hi, since a couple of days ago, I am having trouble opening a select few webites and get the message that they have timed out. They are popular ones, ebay.ca, BBC, and chapters.ca. I also cannot view the itunes store in itunes, although I am still able to update podcasts. The only thing I did recently to the computer was uninstall norton, and install Microsoft security essentials. I have xp and firefox 3.6.3 I've searched for solutions and have cleared cache, cookies, updated java, ran norton removal tool, removed cookie file, tried no proxy, tried auto-detect proxy...and I am stumped. I don't know what else to try. Any ideas?

When I visit some websites, I see just a white screen with nothing on it - No text, no images, no spot nothing - just white.

Please note that I have tried the following things and none has worked for me.

1) I have reset Firefox - But no changes. 2) I have started Firefox with add-ons disabled - But no changes. 3) I have cleared the cookies for the websites - But no changes.

Even a few days back, everything was ok. But don't know what happens now. My Antivirus Kaspersky could not solve the problem. I have also used Malwarebytes ( Free Version ) to scan my computer. No malware was found.

Please help. What to do ?

We are wanting to move our intranet users from IE to Firefox but we have some places where we want to be able to open local (or network) files or directories. I have found quite a few references in Stack Overflow and otherwise but most of them are quite old and none of the old techniques seem to work with the current version of Firefox Quantum (v68 at the time of writing).

The Local Filesystem Links extension seems to work well but I would rather not rely on an extension, particularly one that also requires installation of an addon module, if possible. Can anybody tell me how to access the local filesystem from a webpage in Firefox by just changing settings in about: config? Or is this just not possible anymore?

I am hoping to get something like <a href="file://///networkdrive/directory"> working if possible
