I downloaded Firefox to my Mac book pro but when I do a search it is still Google that searches and I do not want to search with Google my hope was that I would search with Firefox. Firefox is set as my default browser. I use a VPN and Google keeps making me fill in captchas before I can do a search and sometimes I have to complete up to 5 captchas asking how many squares have traffic light etc. So in short how do I set up Firefox so it is Firefox that completes the search.

Sincerely

Terry

Latest versions of FF on MacOS provides inaccuate User-Agent string.

I'm looking at the User-Agent strings from MacOS systems running the lastest versions of MacOS 11, 12 or 13. They appear to be reporting they are running MacOS X 10.15.7 Since all versions of MacOS X 10.* are now well past EOL, this causes problems when using this at least do some minimal testing against the system being "supported". Yes, I know it's easy to forge your UA strings, but most people do not, and it at least provides a reasonable base line of what to expect from users.

I asked this question yesterday, but I have a bit more detail that I can add. I use Firefox as my primary browser, and I use a VPN to protect against hackers. I use Godaddy to host a website that I manage, and I need to log into my Godaddy account to make changes to my website.

When I try to log into my Godaddy account, I receive an error message stating that I am not authorized to use this (the Godaddy?) server. I have talked to Godaddy about this problem, and they say that their server will not connect to any other server unless they can establish a secure connection. Apparently, when I try to log into my Godaddy account, the Godaddy server does not see my computer as being part of a secure server, so it will not allow me to connect to Godaddy.

Godaddy suggested turning off my VPN before I try to log into my Godaddy account, and this has not helped. I get a new error message stating that their is something unusual about my (Firefox) browser. Can anyone help solve this problem? Thanks.

Hi there,

I have just set up a new Wordpress site, which is currently in mantenance mode. For some reason, i think becuase I was using FF Develoer Edition for the domain nam DNS set up, I just cannot access the site. The maintanance page shows, but is broken, and the Wordpress admin page is inaccessible, giving the "The page isn’t redirecting properly" error.

I can access the site just fine in another browser, including regular Firefox, on my computer, or any other. It's just tied to this one FF Dev Edition. I have tried all suggested fixes regarding clearing Cookies & Cache, deleting all history, setting up custom cookie tracking, using "always use private browsing mode", to no avail. I've even deleted & reinstalled FFDE. I'm on Mac & have also used Terminal to purge my DNS cache. I just can't access this URL:

https://www.advicerooms.co.uk/wp-admin

As mentioned, this works just fine in any other browser.

Any ideas? FFDE is my web developing browser of choice & I need to start working on this site, but will have to drop FFDE for another browser now if I can't sort this.

Hope someone can help!

Many thanks in advance

Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

In trying to solve my problem, I am going from bad to worse! Embarrassing! Screenshot of Chinese character issue is attached. Also, when I try to sign into Firefox from that page - https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/hi-IN/questions/1381354 - I am blocked from signing in. Somehow I am signed in now, but not sure how. duh! So first, the Chinese characters I need to solve, THEN have a question about an issue with mailto - no gmail default option. I have legacy handlers downloaded, kindly provided by jscher2000. Thank you! Do I drag his legacy handlers into my profile, if I am able to do so? I have tried all other suggestions on this problem. I really hope not to have to start anew with Firefox, because I have years of settings I am afraid I will lose. (Know it is doable, but I am a coward, as well as stupid, apparently.) Thanks in advance.

Hello all, I was wondering if any one else is getting these old file virus alerts "Trojan Horse Full Path: c:\program files\mozilla firefox\00029458.tmp" I have been getting alerts every two or three days from Norton "NIS" with different temporary file numbers that end up in this folder/directory. These are some type of Media file that are 7 years old with lots of users. They seam to popup when I read my yahoo news feed. I browse in private mode, so I don't save cash or searches, I don't use a VPN either so maybe someone is trying to track me or Norton is being over protective because these don't look to be harmful because of so many users but I am no expert.
