So this started with Chrome, the browser just stopped loading, it would open but I could never get a website to open. So I changed to Foxfire, and it worked fine. Now it is doing the same thing. I open the browser, but no web pages will open. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted my computer, run countless Norton scans, my computer is just a year old, I am online and I've used all the troubleshooting devices I can find. I don't know what is going on and could really use some help. The only error I get is 'Timed out'.

The connection has timed out

An error occurred during a connection to support.mozilla.org.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

When I am already on a website and try to search a new website in the search bar it opens a new tab. Is there a option to search in the same tab? I already tried browser.search.openintab in the about:config. And after restarting the browser that didn't work.

When I try to launch Verizon TV on my computer, all I see is a red spinning circle. This started happening two or 3 days ago after a firefox update. I was hoping that today's update would fix this but it did not.

As suggested, I un-checked the DRM Content box but that did not resolve the issue. Nor did disabling the Widevine plug-in. When I did that, I receive the message, "You must enable DRM to play some audio or video on this page.. When I click the Enable DRM button, I see the same spinning red circle.

Since I have no issues watching Verizon TV on Chrome, this appears to be a Firefox/Widevine issue. Hopefully, it will be resolved shortly.

Two new problems: Most recent is

"firefox having trouble restoring your pages...start new session"   

And...for several months, anything I print from website (i.e credit card statement) is in HUGE type that doesn't even come close to fitting the page. This does not happen when I print from Edge, nor when printing documents (pdf, notepad or anything NOT from a website), so the problem has to be in Firefox.

Not for the first time, I suddenly cannot download any files in firefox (from PDFs to wetransfer links etc.). I have followed every bit of online advice there is. In troubleshoot mode I can download files. However by a process of elimination it is not caused by hardware acceleration, addons or extensions or my avast antivirus. This is really troublesome and I really need to download a lot for work. Performing a refresh every couple of weeks is not the solution.

This problem has been around for at least two years now.

Firefox 96.0.2 home screen color

I saw this posted: (A) Right-click context menus, toolbar drop-down panels Starting in Firefox 89, these would flip to a dark background if the text on the inactive/background tabs was white or light. Firefox 96 has extended this adaptation to more parts of the browser. As far as I know, the only built-in way to avoid this is to change your toolbar theme to one with dark text on the inactive/background tabs. (The other way is the not-officially-supported userChrome.css file route.)

OK, I have been using a "not-officially-supported userChrome.css file" for quite sometime. Every 4th or 5th update (sic) screws it up. Apparently the latest (96.0.2) "looks" at my toolbars, makes an (erroneous) assumption and turns the main part of the home screen to black.

Not useful!

Suggestions to override Firefox's (less than helpful) assumption?

Both my wife and I have lost work and time due to Firefox notifications. I have seen my wife throw her hands up and ask me what to do because she has been hacked and now all it will let her do is change her Firefox color theme or whatever else Firefox is pushing. For people with physical or other handicaps these notifications are extremely stressful. I did the research (4hours) in Firefox archives and getting caught in the Firefox loop that took me back to the same wrong information. BTW, where is the "options" category in Privacy and Security? I have installed a block though I doubt it will work and would like to hear the correct way to stop or derail Firefox notifications. Suggestion: Use a pop up message like a sticky note instead of de-prioritizing the web page I am attempting to or looking at. I could be contacting poison control since I can't hear or (this actually did happen) researching what to do with explosives in my back yard that are smoking and dripping that I just plowed up AND the local law is a 1-800 number and will get back to me when they listen to their machine. When my freedom of choice is taken, it pushes me to not support the taker. If I can be of assistance let me know and I will do what I can to improve the Firefox notification scenario.

See attached image. Things I want to be able to do, which were once easily accomplished with Tab Mix Plus. When I type in search bar, open in new tab. When I type in address bar, open in new tab. Have new tab open at far right (be the last tab) so it is easy to locate. Ability to protect pinned tabs to protect them from being accidentally closed. Currently, links still open in new tabs but not bookmarks and history. I'm in over my head. I just don't know how to get things to work the way they once did with Tab Mix Plus and don't know why this wonderful add-on isn't valued by Firefox. Thanks!

I do not wish to see advertisements for Mullvad on my Private Browsing new tab pages. But I can't even seem to opt out of them, as they remain even after searching "Sponsored" in about:preferences and unchecking all the applicable boxes. uBlock Origin also seemed unable to remove them, even with a custom filter and after enabling it on about-scheme.

So I went to fix it with userchrome CSS, by adding the following to a file named userChrome.css inside a folder named chrome inside my profile folder (after setting toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to True):

[code] /* Remove advertisements for Mozilla VPN */ @-moz-document url(about:privatebrowsing) { .promo { display: none !important; } } /code

However, even after restarting the browser, these advertisements are still present.

What am I doing wrong?

Some time ago, my colour scheme in Firefox changed. I spent hours getting it back to what I wanted. Recently, following a PC restart it happened again, now I can't recover my original Theme. Worse, 2 website's, ASDA & Tesco have changed colour to purple making it very difficult for my wife to read. It makes no difference to these websites whichever theme I set. When I open the same websites on Google Chrome, they appear normally. I have used Firefox for many years but now it gets ever more complicated making it more difficult to use. Often, if I need to update anything financial with suppliers, it fails to do so, then I have to switch to Google Chrome which works without any problems.

PS I tried to add images both by word doc. & PDF but clicking the 'Browse' button below could not find them in my explorer, they are there.

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading
