My Firefox has started refusing to open certain websites which I have previously accessed. These include, but I suspect are not limited to: warhorn.net foambrain.com mybestjudymerch.com

Google Chrome on this computer will open these sites, as will my Firefox install on my work computer. I'm running Big Sur 11.2.1. I have tried every step on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290042

I just tried to print a list for the browser on Firefox and the new print options are useless. I use to be able to simplify, change background and have more options. This looks like the printing options on Microsoft Edge. I started using Firefox to get away from that. I mean if your going to mimic edge then why not use that browser instead??? Stop changing things. You update every 5 minutes and then it crashes, is to slow or just doesn't work. Slow the hell down and remember people like Firefox because it isn't like the big companies out there. It's a good browser. Leave it alone.

Hello everyone

This issue started today 10/March/2021 and only on Firefox. I have tested this into 4 different computers and it only occours on Firefox, other browsers are fine.

As I try to perform any search on Youtube searchbar, spacebar wont work. It acts like it is pausing/unpausing a video, and does not "space" the words. In fact, all Youtube shortcuts seems to be "live" even when a video is not playing

Any other site its working fine.

Anyone got any ideia on how to solve this issue?

Thank you

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

Firefox 86.0b2, Windows 10 build 19041

I browse in permanent private mode, strict enhanced security.

When I logout of gmail, the permissions icon appears in the Site Info panel, image attached. When I choose X, the icon disappears; it says "a refresh might be necessary". When i refresh, the icon is back. No google cookie is listed in "Cookies and site data"

I refreshed firefox, reapplied my preferences. Problem persists.

I first noticed it this afternoon; it does not happen with Firefox 85, same privacy settings.

Is there something I can do to change this behaviour?

Thanks.

For the longest time, years, we have encountered interactive pop-ups that lead to failure of firefox to supply user friendly interaction. I can only think this has driven less avid users to decline interaction with firefox, basically driving them to other browsers or means instead of persisting with firefox. You've launched an older version of firefox is the most notorious pop-ups that has ever been delivered from firefox. the message goes on to read:

Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of firefox.

Most every time I open a file by this means it is through the file local system clicking on an html file and other times it occurs from an application on this computer directing me to a site where I should obtain specific information. I want you to remember that every time we save a pages those saves are in the file/folder combination of html that reside to on the computer; and, every time we wish to open one of these we are addressed with this less than ideal situation.

This advice has several deficiencies. First off as I see is that instead of offering a means to update the current version of firefox the user is given no alternative except to 'create a new profile'. How can this be a better alternative than an update?

Frustration that derive from this interaction is:

one, when I open a file I usually would like it opened in a specific profile so that all the data becomes associated with that profile

two, not only the time it takes to create a new profile and the lapse in an uninterrupted thought process but what to do with all the one-off profiles that are created in order to handle this particular situation. Further, every time a user wishes to open a file of this nature there is never an alternative means to tackle this reoccurring problem. For years it has been the same end-run-about.

In addition, this dialog seems flawed as we can always open the file with right-click file and select 'open with' through the file system in which the html file reside on the computer; but not when directly clicked on. If you try to search and read for the accepted answer to this issue you will find the answer is a bit more complicated than the average user will endeavor to install. More, I have seen that I can open the browser through the profile dialog box and never is it more than one version off yet I still have to deal with the frustrating pop-up.

Can we get an update button on the 'You've launched an older version of firefox' dialog box?

Thanks in advance! Gll

Several times now I post a question and I get this long running horizontal scroll.

I have firgured this out the time prior - a while ago - but now I must deal with it again and I do not wish to test this at this time or ever again.

Does anyone know why this is happening. The message should look like a standard text page. I am editing the text in notepad and paste into the message board. I use one long run-on sentence for each paragraph. So, I do not know why some of these lines should become encapsulated in code while others do not.

Why is this even an issue to occur and why is there not a description on this page on how to use this editor?

ive had this happen numerous times over and it kind of just randomly stops, but i never know how long itll last. its happened again today, where videos on youtube, tumblr, twitter, etc will not play. its like its at the very start of the video and just wont play. it seems my firefox just updated today too, but i cant say this has only happened when i update so idk what the cause is. if it is update related i dont know how to fix it.

Video with sound is lagging. There is a sound like you processor is running over 100% and it is still not enough 3. Video and sound is stopping.

Site is here - https://gardcommunications.com/

Seemingly, in all browsers but Firefox Developer Edition 80.0b5 - the video display full view port width. This hasn't been an issue until a day or two ago.

Making drastic changes to the CSS, I can get it to behave like every other browser, but that's not really feasible.

Anything change to Firefox Developer Edition that would make the video behave differently?
