Firefox is redirecting a particular http:// site to https:// Can't figure out how to stop the redirection. It is an unsecured site I am trying to access. Tried various fixes from the community to no avail.

The redirection started earlier this month.

I uninstalled Mozilla VPN and then it got a runtime error. After trying to refresh Firefox I was forced to do an uninstall and clean reinstall. However now it doesn't even load. Fortunately Chrome is still working so I can get online and ask this question: how do I do a full reinstall to get a browser that loads? I'll be happy to run any diagnostics that I can.

I embedded a Youtube livestream video and the live stream chatbox into a web page, the video was loaded successfully but the live chat box shows "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at xn--www-gn0a.youtube.com." I am not sure where xn--www-gn0a.youtube.com is from, in the code, I did not refer to this youtube URL at all.

This issue happened only in Firefox. Chrome, IE are fine. Anyone knows why?

Thanks!

Hello,

Ever since the last upgrade was installed I have seen that the browser gets slower and slower but even on the first tab opened the performance is terrible. The symptoms are that pages load slowly, typing doesn't get displayed in the order typed, using aps like Ancestry in the photo section; using the select a face from a picture is very slow and jerky.

I would gladly give up what 'improvements' 92 provided just to get back to a version that works better.

I have disabled unused features, defragged the HD, and followed what was provided about slow FF and nothing has helped.

As a test I tried another browser on the same site and it was lightening fast. I prefer FF so that is not an option.

Any ideas on what I can do to get FF to operate better????

Thanks on advance for your help!!

I've had several instances when the browser would freeze after logging out of my user and/or when the internet cuts out on windows 10 Home 19043.1237. I figured it would stop after an update of Firefox (i currently have it set to automatic) but it hasn't. Even when I stepped away from the computer and it went to sleep, the browser froze and I had to force quit.

I'm having a problem with Firefox. I can't quit or force quit the browser. I used the red button on the browser window to close it; but, still can't get it to quit and now I can't reopen the browser. I tried to restart my computer thinking that might force Firefox to quit; but, it did not work and the computer canceled the shut down process. I've never had this issue with Firefox before. I can't even say which version of Firefox I have. It is a newer version, though.

I did find a similar problem in a different thread; but, the thread was closed; so, I'm starting this one. Please let me know what I can do to fix this.

Hello,

I am using Firefox version 92. The screenshot function is not working, both if I right click and request a screenshot from the slideout menu, and if I request a screenshot from the shortcuts/overflow menu (scissors icon). I have attached a screenshot (taken with ‘prntscr” through windows) png of the result that takes place on my screen. The screen will freeze with this image of a large X until I do a refresh of the page. Cntl-Shift-S also does not work. I have tried clearing the cache, running FF in safe mode, refreshing FF, reinstalling FF, and I have ensured that the extensions.screenshots.disabled setting in about:config is set to ‘false’ (also toggled it to ‘true’ and back to ‘false’). I have attached a screenshot of all the settings in about:config that pertain to screenshots.

Thank you for your help.

Manage Exceptions button for cookies is not working for me since FF88 or 89, don’t remember which version precisely. I click on the button and the dialogue box that would normally appear to set exceptions does not pop up. Moreover it looks like when I click on the button the user interface on that tab freezes for a period. My FF profile is customised. I know if I start with a blank profile the issue goes away. I have another that works fine. However I would rather try to fix this issue in my current profile. I poked around in about:config but so far have had no success.

Any ideas? I searched google but could not find anything. Also checked mozilla bugzilla a while back without success. I am using FF 92 on Arch Linux.
