In the last few days, I've had problems opening attachments on my e-mail. This morning, new Windows updates have restricted even more of what opens on Firefox. I'm unable to open YT and Rumble videos sent in my mail and as of this morning, messenger no longer opens in Facebook. I can see the contacts and what is new there, but I get a blank white screen when trying to open the message (no video). The same is happening with certain newsletters in my e-mail with video attachments. This morning, with the new "update", it was strongly suggested I change my Browser. If I fwd my mail to Microsoft Edge, there is no problem. My husband, who uses the Microsoft browser, has no problems at all with mail or Facebook, even when I forward my problem messages, so it has to be with Mozilla. Duck Duck Go is also prevented from showing/opening on the FF Browser. Didn't we go through this back in the Netscape days? (And WIN?) And what can I do to solve this? I do not wish to stop using FF.

Just installed Firefox 92.0 on an Imacpro running 10.14.6. When i click on a Google meet meeting link in the Calendar app or any link in the Apple Mail app I get the following notification from the finder:

You can't open the application "Firefox" because the Classic environment is no longer supported

I can copy and paste the links into FF and they function properly. Please help.

We have a strange problem. Two PCs, both Windows 10 (with all updates), Firefox (latest version).

One one of them if I enter the website address www.boots.co.uk, within a few seconds the website for www.boots.com is displayed. No problem.

On the other PC, if I enter "www.boots.co.uk" in the address bar, the page looks as though it's loading, but nothing happens unless I press "Esc" or click on the "X" on the Firefox toolbar. At that point the www.boots.com website is displayed straightaway.

I've looked at the Firefox settings on both PCs, and they match. I'm at a loss to know why the redirect is working on one PC but not on the other.

I've quoted the Boots website as an example, but it happens on other websites too. And yes, I'm aware that I could just type "www.boots.com" and go straight there - now I know that's the correct website address - but it's the principle of the thing!

If we use a different browser on the offending PC, the redirect works as it should.

Any ideas what's going on here? My IT knowledge isn't up to this kind of problem solving, I'm afraid.

Costco.com website will not display store locations or product reviews when using FireFox browser. Website works fine when using Chrome browser. This is a recent problem as all info on the Costco website displayed properly with Firefox not that long ago. As an example, when I enter my zip code to find the closest stores, nothing is displayed now when a map and store list used to come up. I've tried changing various settings, but no go. Any advice would be appreciated...

It is insistent.

I have found a 6 year old post that uses links that firefox no longer uses: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1092276

The instructions there no longer seem to work, I deleted cookies, closed firefox and ran CCleaner, it is still always redirecting me to .hk.

The site looks different, shitty and keeps asking me to log in or agree to some bullshit settings.

Very strange, has anyone seen this before?

Some websites that I use display the font Helvetica insead of the intented font. I only have this problem on Firefox. I do not have Helvetica installed, my default fonts (including advanced settings) are set to Arial. How could I fix this? I had provided 2 screenshots with Firefox and Chrome to see the difference.

Gmail shortcuts not ignored in search bar

I'm a gmail user and use its keyboard shortcuts extensively. The problem I've had in Firefox (but not Chrome) is that 2-3 times per day, when I'm typing in gmail's search bar, the shortcut handling code kicks in.

Here's a more detailed example:

  1. I hit `/` to go to the search bar
  2. I want to search for "peach", so I start typing that
  3. When I type the second letter, `e`, gmail recognizes that as the shortcut to archive the current message.

If I reload the gmail tab, it'll start working again.

I'm on MacOS. I've got five add-ons installed which have permissions on gmail (see attached image), but none strike me as the type which would affect javascript keyboard event handling. The most likely would be LastPass or uBlock origin.

Has anybody else encountered this? Found a solution?

Dear Firefox Community: I used to love Firefox. Now, I am constantly blocked from performing basic functions. Tonight I tried to complete a simple ebay transaction. I wasted more than one hour trying to make a purchase, with Firefox failing at every step. I opened Microsoft Edge and completed my purchase within literally seconds. Firefox now blocks me from several of my favorite websites. My fantasy sports and sports betting websites fail on Firefox but work fine on other browsers. The entire financial pop up window that is supposed to provide security does not work with my bank's website. I am trying to find a good reason to continue using Firefox, and I am not thinking of any. Again, I'm a longtime user and fan but right now the basics are not working with you, Firefox. Very frustrated.

I've migrated to a new computer and installed the latest version of Firefox. I now get this persistent message when I try to access my email on Yahoo:

"The latest version of Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail". I then choose the basic Mail.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and once I move around folders for a while, (Inbox, Trash, Sent), Yahoo remembers and gives me the latest version.

How can I make this permanent?
