Trying to log into my investing website (Vanguard)

So.............I log into the website periodically and several weeks or more ago they 'updated' their site with a new look. So when I go to it, it has 'auto-filled' my username and password (just like it used to do) and after the site does the 'handshake' with the window I press the 'Log In' button and nothing happens. Nothing at all, it just sits there. I can launch my (outdated) Internet Explorer browser and do the same thing and it works fine and I go right in to the site. I've tried deleting cookies for the site on the Firefox browser but it doesn't change anything.

So..........ideas? Maybe a plug-in problem???

Thanks, Kent

FF 94.0.2 right click Context Menus hang and other issues since update from FF 88

Running ROCK SOLID Windows 7 SP 1 64 bit. Last week updated 64 bit FF from 88xx to 94.0.2. EVERYTHING was working fine with FF 88 except for videos on CNN.

After update when I right click in FF the small Context Menu freezes. Subsequent right clicks launches the same Menu. See attached image. When I mess around with scrolling they go away.

Also, when I'm going back and forth between a FF web page and a file in another app to cut and paste text or images, half of one or the other screens hang.

I'm an old geek and I did ALL of the recommendations including a complete clean uninstall and clean reinstall of FF 94.0.2... I've spent hours trying to solve the problem...

I'm having NO PROBLEMS with Chrome or Opera or any other SW on this PC.

BTW, DON'T EVEN SUGGEST GOING TO Windows 10 or 11. I have 10 but I use 7 on this PC for a lot of reasons.

Like I said, problems began after 94.0.2 update.

Regards,

Chas.

Sign in...sign in...sign in.... What. I am signed in to my Firefox account, why the hell do I have to sign in, change my profile etc etc, to ask a question? I'm getting frustrated with Firefox, it's my goto browser but really, it's getting to be a piece of crap. Too many incompatible changes, with itself and it's extensions. I've changed settings, particular to Youtube, I use Youtube extensions, but regularly those settings are ignored. I'll change autoplay, pop out mini players, in-scroll video pop-outs etc, all to be off, but on the next video or page load, it's back. I get page not found for sites like Aliexpress. WTF is going on? I've cleared cache, I've reset settings and keep getting the same crap issues.

Hello, Just last week all videos that I watched on Paramount Plus worked fine. Now I get an error message 3304, which seems to indicate that I have an ad blocker active. I have tried everything including trying to use Paramount Plus in Firefox safe mode, with no luck. I know this is not necessarily a Firefox issue, but if anyone has knowledge or experience with this issue, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks

On this site: https://www.orange.pl/twojekonto/zaloguj I can't force firefox to remember username (no problem with remembering password on next step). In older Firefox without WebEx there was addon which allowed to manipulate forms to prepare proper autocompletion data. This addon is not supported with WebEx anymore due to lack of proper functions. Instead Firefox Dev Team claims that mechanism built in current Firefox is enough for such tasks and mentioned addons are not needed. Seems it is wrong thinking.

I tried different approaches to save username for mentioned site but without success.

I can no longer view Instagram in my browser. For a week or so I've had trouble with Instagram. I can log in but all I get is the grey Instagram camera logo in the middle of my browser window. The app on my phone works fine. If I continue to try logging in on my computer to see if it works yet Instagram locks my account until I enter a password they send my email. My eyes aren't great and I need to view Instagram on my computer monitor. Please help. How do I fix this?

It took years to perfect my userchrome to make FF look exactly how I want. Once 91+ came out it wasn't even a question of fixing the floating tabs and condensing the height and menu spacing (though I tried all of it) but my own codes stopped working properly - I had code to set the background colour of menus/bookmark menus and when I upgrade they were the right colour but with thick white borders around them. This was more important to me than the floating tabs and I immediately downgraded to 90 where I've stayed. Can anyone help me figure out how to get MY codes to work with 91+ and/or to work together with the other fixes out there (tabs, condensed menus etc)??

Below is how my userchrome looks and attached is how my current set up looks. ANY advice is appreciated. THANK YOU.

"Homepage and new windows" setting allows "Custom URLs" as an option. "New tabs" setting allows only "Firefox home page (default)" or "Blank page"

Why is there no longer an option in "New tabs" for a "Custom URL" ??

Is this just another of those program designers' decisions of a less-is-more "improvement" . . . ? Well, it's not.

How can I return to having my Homepage URL also designated for new tabs?

Thank you.

After the update to 89.0 the Shortcuts have taken an 'visual upgrade' that makes all the images chosen for them half as small as they need to be because they need to have a 'cute little grey border' almost as big as the image between it and the corners of the square.

I have twenty four shortcuts, that I differentiate at a glance through the images without having to stop to read the text on each one and this stupid change is really roasting my mellows, I have taken a look and haven't found any option to revert it to the previous look, anyone knows any way to do it or do I have to install the previous firefox update and stop updating and give up security updates to save myself from this stupid change?

I'm interested in listing what bookmarks are being synched. You'd think that's the dumbest question on earth. Obviously, just look at my bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+o. There they are. But that's not what I'm asking. I want to see what has been stored on the Mozilla site in the way of bookmarks. I want to see what Mozilla will send to a second device when I get on that second device & tell the Firefox on the second device to synch. And not just bookmarks. I want to see everything that will get downloaded onto the second device when it synchs. I suppose it depends partly on what the second device is: PC, phone, something else. But that doesn't change my question. I'd like to list what is on the Mozilla site in the way of synching data. It's all well & good to say it's doing what it needs to. I think I'm in the trust but verify camp on this subject.

I cannot turn on the audio input and the audio output in Discord web application when running Firefox for desktop PC. The advice from Mozilla Support knowledge base regarding how to enable microphone did not help, since there is always no access request from discord.com detected in "Preferences" -> "Privacy & Security" -> "Permissions".

I am using the latest version of Firefox (94.0.1) on Windows 7 SP 1 and Windows 10 20H2. In Discord Support knowledge base the app is claimed to support Firefox version 80+.

I usually work with my bookmarks side bar open all the time. Until recently whenever I bookmarked a page it wourld show at the bottom of the 'other bookmarks' section. Now, I seem to have a 'recently bookmarked' section where everything goes. (Possibly I always had this section - just never used it!). If I move a newly arrived bookmark either to one of my saving folders or to or the 'other bookmarks' and then delete it from the 'recently bookmarked' section the bookmark in the folder is deleted as well. I'd like to go back to my simple life please..............
