I recently transferred Firefox from my old computer with Windows 10 to my new computer with Windows 11. But Firefox hasn't been working properly since the transfer. I have all my favorites on the toolbar, but when I recently downloaded something, it couldn't open it. That's happened a few times in the last few days. I had to go to Microsoft Edge to be able to open the downloads. What do I need to do to be able to use Firefox on this new computer?

More and more often, websites that are safe, are being blocked. For instance when I order online from Subway.com and get to the payment page, Firefox blocks it. Today, I tried to go to the KellyBlueBook page at www.kbb.com and was blocked -- even though I've accessed both of those pages and sites in the recent weeks without trouble. My Edge browser has no such issues. I've uploaded a screen shot.

I'm about to just switch browsers all together. I've looked all the other postings and none of those fixes works at all. It's random and annoying. Windows 11

Currently the fonts at the top of the page (tab headers, address bar, search bar, booksmarks) are all set to a larger font. I don't know how they got changed but they are too big now. If I try change font size and style in settings nothing happens. It is not how it looked on first install and using another browser has font sizes of a more practical size. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firebox and also doing a refresh and it doesn't change anything.

Its almost like a bug that has made Firefox set these fonts larger than they should and not able to modifying them again.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to fix this and its very off putting to the point, short of a full OS reinstall I'll have to start using another browser.

I am trying to move Firefox to my wife's new computer. I have pulled the HD out of the old computer and have linked it to the computer I'm typing on via a USB port. On it, I can navigate to the Profiles directory but when I attempt to copy it to my HD on this computer, I get this error:

    0X80004005: Unspecified error

I've reviewed pages by searching on the error code but nothing comes up that is relevant. I've cleared permissions on the Profiles directory and all its files ... to no avail.

I'm stumped. Any suggestions?

This is a strange bug. I have a Dell Latitude 5490 i5 (8GB Ram). I recently installed Windows 11. Firefox freezes when I create a mobile hotspot to share the internet with my mobile devices. Then I'll have to disable the hotspot even to restart firefox! otherwise, with the mobile hotspot open, firefox doesn't re-start.

Edge works fine, never tested chrome. No other app freezes.

Any suggestion?

P.S I have the latest Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit)

Firefox on Windows 11 now runs at 100% and a stack of ram. Obviously this slows down my PC and this is only on the home page with nothing to look at. This makes it unuseable. Tried help pages - no use at all. Why am I asking an unknown instead of Mozilla? To big for their boots?

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.

Login to an account works fine on Chrome but does not work on Firefox Win 10. When using Firefox the target login page is displayed but I have to either type in User ID and Password or copy and paste from a password library - the password library loads the values but the site won't accept them as valid. Once I have managed to get the User ID and Password accepted the target site will not accept them so I get a message to that effect - either 404 or session has expired, etc. Using Chrome typing the entries or copy and pasting the URL for the password manager displays the passwords and logs me in. All I can think of is that there is some encryption or license problem with the Firefox login process.

I'm trying to login into my gohighlevel.com account. They have a two step login process. First, Step username and password, second step code verification. When I get to the second step ad provide the code the page just stays on loading confirm verification button.

I don't know if this is a settings or privacy issue with Mozilla but i am stuck and frustrated because the process works on different devices.

i hope this is a browser issue and not my laptop issue.

I'm well aware that they made changes to Firefox 98 and removed the option to Download without saving. However, the documented "fix" to change the about.config to disable a specific command is blocked when using the browser in an Enterprise setting (probably due to a group policy so employees can't tamper their browsers to do something they shouldn't do, like login using their personal accounts).

Note that the reason why Download without saving is useful is because I work a lot on one-off reports. It saves me a click of not having to deal with cleaning out my downloads folder. I feel that the devs have catered too much on the novice users and ignored the power users. At least Edge still allows you to do it.

is there a way to download the Firefox version before this without automatically updating to the latest one? I honestly don't like this change. I have transitioned my work to Edge, but one frustrating thing about it is I can't open reports of the same name. I do 2 passes on one report and put it on a template to combine them. Firefox allows me to download these reports at the same time, but having to sift through your download folder to delete the files you don't want to keep. I would want to give Firefox a chance if this is reverted, else, I will have to uninstall it because it doesn't serve me a purpose anymore as a browser to run and open one-off reports.

Or if there is a way to change browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false even if access to about.config is blocked by Enterprise?

If you're going to do a future update, please do have a switch for us to go back to the old way of doing things without having to go through tampering config settings.

What changed with Firefox that the security certificates for IJR.com and westernjournal.com are no longer recognized as being valid? See the example response image that I am getting. I use Thunderbird as my email client. I am getting the results shown in the uploaded image whenever I click on a link to an article from the email displayed in Firefox. Up until today (6/16/2022), I never had this problem.

Any way to cast to chromecast with firefox?

It's annoying that I have to use Chrome or Edge to cast youtube to my TV.

Or use my phone. But it's charging atm. So very annoying my favorite browser can't do this simple thing. But all the other browsers can.
