Random pages do not load correctly. Sometimes pictures are obscured by a series of small green boxes or partially or wholly covered by a green box. The text appears in these instances as either pink/purple or garbled. I have checked and rechecked all available help in the support section and followed all the suggestions. I have completely removed and reinstalled Firefox three times.

I'd like to keep Firefox as my primary browser. Please help!

When I use Gmail in my up-to-date Firefox under Windows 10 or Linux and type e.g. "Leser und Leserinnen", then exit the draft and reopen it, "und Leserinnen" is gone. This happens to all tested feminine forms ending with "-innen", even irregular or non-existing ones, if they follow the masculine form and " und " (both preceded and followed by exactly one space). The truncation is case insensitive, and when I type the feminine form first, "innen" will be cut, and " und [masculine]" as well. Turning off auto-correction didn't help. Also, when I send a mail containing such a double form, it arrives correctly, but in my sent mails " und [feminine]" is gone. However, when I then open "forward" or "reply" with repetition of the sent mail, the deleted words are back in place. None of this happens when I use another browser or an E-Mail client or the Gmail app on my phone, nor does it happen with other mail providers, not even when using Firefox. I know this sounds weird, as if there were an automatic "politically incorrect maker". But it is exactly what happens. I wonder if anyone can replicate the phenomenon or - even better, find out why it occurs.

Since the recent update, certain parts of webpages appear to be blank, even tho the information is there. I've been forced to use a different browser in order to do my job. Is there a fix coming, or do I have to say goodbye to my favorite browser? (A screen shot of an example page is attached). Thank you!!

I am experiencing a issue with firefox for a few months. The issue is, on some websites the favicon and uploaded images appear as scanned lines. Also the same issue whenever i upload any profile photo to my firefox account (doesnt matter which format i am using). Same issue when i uploaded images to facebook story or whatsapp (whatsapp is fixed now). I am sure its related to my browsers config because using firefox on other devices, I dont face this issue along with other browsers. It would be great if any volunteer could point out the possible cause.

Since a few days, when I visit Google Maps, after completely loading the page (roads and buildings shown for a brief moment) the map becomes wholly black with just captions still readable.

Doing the following didn't fix: Restart Firefox. Update Nvidia Drivers (updated yesterday to 466.11, didn't resolve). Disable every add-on and setting default theme. Disable Hardware Acceleration from settings.

THIS temporarily fixed: Entering Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

So I assume the problem is in advanced settings. There are TONS of settings there. Any ideas? I 'd rather not go through a Firefox Refresh losing all site permissions/fine tuning for cookie settings/blocked content for every site made in years. I'm on Firefox 88, Windows 10 64bit ver. 2004, GeForce 950M, Core i7-4720HQ, 16GB RAM.


I put "again" in the title since another question about this is marked as solved for Firefox 68/69. Needless to say, I tried everything from that discussion (such as switching gfx.webrender.all), to no avail for the present issue.

Google maps worked great until the latest update of Firefox 2 days ago. Now when I go to the maps I get a Google page that says " We are sorry, but you do not have access to Google Maps. Please contact your Organization Administrator for access."

I know it's not my ISP, as the maps works fine in both IE and Seamonkey browsers. Any ideas what has happened in the last update that broke it?

I don't use Chrome for the same reason, and now it's happened to FF. I'm on a desktop/monitor WIN 10. With the last FF upgrade to 89.0 text has faded on some web pages. (Almost all of Ebay) When I tried to fix this on Chrome years ago, I thought I was missing a system font. That was not the case and everything I attempted, failed. Now, last week, FF upgraded and here I am again. Please help if you can. Thank you.

Since the upgrade I have not been able to access sites I have used in Firefox for years. All the sites are at shockwave.com, such as https://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/the-daily-snoop-a-hidden-object-game.jsp. I contacted Shockwave but they have no idea, just telling me to disable my add-ons such as ad blockers. That's no solution because (1) I've always had the same add-ons enabled and (2) the same add-ons do not affect MS Edge.

I attached a screen shot of the page I now see in Firefox and what it should look like.

Does anyone have a suggestion to resolve this issue within Firefox?

Thanks.

Firefox can't load some websites but other browsers can in Windows 10 (version 20H2)

Dear Community,

I have problem with my Firefox version 86.0 (64-bit). I have Windows 10 20H2 64-bit operating system. Firefox can't load some websites. For example I can load https://allegro.pl/ but I have problem sometimes with this website: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php

If you go there and use F5 key on keyboard (refresh website) sometimes this can't load. On other browser I don't have this issue. This very frustrated me because I can't work. On Windows 10 1909 on older machine (another computer) I don't have this issue with my firefox (this sam 86.0 version). So this is probably problem only with Windows 10 20H2.


Steps to reproduce:

1) Open new tab and go here: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php 2) Log in to your account for Allegro website (without account you can't load website) 3) When website loads normally you must refresh this website (F5 key on keyboard) few times (you must be patient, sometimes this can take some time) 4) When website can't load or it's load partly you can see that this stops loading when it try connect to analytics.google.com so I think that it is very strange behavior.

On other browsers on Windows 10 20H2 version this website works without issue. Only with Firefox I have a problem. On Windows 10 1909 version on another machine I can't notice this issue. Also on Ubuntu I don't have any problems with this website with firefox.

Can you fix it? I can't work on my computer with Windows 10 20H2 system. I musted to switch to another browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge). I contacted with owner of the website but this is not the first problem with Firefox on Windows 10 20H2 so you should fix it. I remember that I had some similar problems on another websites but I don't remember what was address for these websites.

Actual results:

Sometimes I can't load this website on Windows 10 20H2 64-bit: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php

When website can't load or it's load in a part you can see in the bottom of the browser that this stops when it try connect to analytics.google.com so it is very strange behavior.

This can be not problem only with this website.

Expected results:

I should load this website always: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php


I hope that you can fix it.

For many years I've been able to do a Google search from Firefox, the result being shown on Google.com and from there I was able to click on Settings in the toolbar beneath the search text box on the page, which displayed a drop down with various options, including Advanced Search, Languages, Search History etc.

However today, clicking on Settings on Google.com takes me to https://www.google.com/preferences instead of displaying the drop down. This would force me to navigate to the advanced search manually, making use of the search from the address bar functionality of Firefox amost useless.

This behaviour is only happening for me in Firefox, with Chrome and Edge both displaying the drop down when clicking on Settings.

The Settings I'm referring to is outlined in the attached image.

I've been using Firefox with Virgin Media's TV Go https://virgintvgo.virginmedia.com/en.html for quite a while without a problem. After the latest update I got the message to update the browser to the latest version and restart. I've tried talking to Virgin about it but been given the runaround by them - surprise. I've tried other browsers, Safari, Chrome, but the quality of the stream is poor compared to what I was getting with Firefox. Has anyone got any ideas? Any hopes?
