I'd like to permanently delete an account that was set up on a former employers email address (email which I can no longer access). Unfortunately I have no secondary email address recorded in the account and all the options on my account page require that I authorise any changes from the email account which I can no longer access.

Is it possible to delete the account?

Hi there,

I'm using my PC for local web development. I use Firefox as my regular browser and recently, in order to distinguish between personal time and development time, I've established a new profile just for development purposes.

The local website I can't reach is "site.local.dev". My OS is Ubuntu 20.04 and that URL points to a local IP on my network (resolved via /etc/hosts file on my PC).

Funny thing is that: - In dev-profile: site.local.dev does not work => "Unable to connect" and the URL bar shows https://site.local.dev even if I force it to http:// - In personal-profile: site.local.dev does work :P

I have tried with CLI tools like "wget", "hosts", "ping", "telnet" and so on and the site loads ok. Even I have used Dillo (damn simple web browser) and the site loads ok also.

Things I've tried so far: - Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can - Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011327 (similar issue, not exactly the same).

It must be a silly thing but I'm out of options now. Perhaps anybody has faced to this situation in the past: any suggestion on this issue?.

Thanks in advance, Ibon.

A couple users at our site intermittently receive a SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT error when navigating to Google in Firefox. This happens in Version 99.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 computers. When the issue occurs, users can navigate to other websites without issues. Navigating to Google in a different browser works no problem. Restarting the browser will resolve the issue. Clearing cookies and site data has no effect. Users can also refresh the page after some time and the issue will go away.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

Walmart website no longer works properly with latest Firefox 96.0.2 64-bit. It works properly with Chrome and other browsers. You can log onto the site and search for products but when you try to add a product to the cart nothing happens. You also can't actually go to the cart. Last time I used Walmart was a few weeks ago and everything worked fine!

A short while ago, Firefox was automatically updated to 99.0.1 on my iMac running Monterey 12.3.1. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, the search engine is stuck on Amazon with no other search engine options available. I normally use Google.

Even if I go into the Firefox settings to the "Search" panel, it is showing ONLY Amazon as the available option in the pull-down menu under "Default Search Engine". In the "Search Bar" section, I have it set to "Add search bar in tool bar". But even if I set it to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", and then switch it back to "Add search bar in tool bar", Amazon still remains the only available search engine.

As a last step, I installed the "Google Search" add-on by 3Indian to see if I could get back my Google search engine, but Google still doesn't show up as an option anywhere, and I am still stuck with just Amazon.

Is this a bug in the latest Firefox build? Did the developers forget to enable something when they did this build perhaps?

Hi,

I'm having a really strange problem.

I'm using Firefox on WIN 11 with my new LG laptop.

When I access a website's drop-down menu, it does not offer me options that I can make a selection.

I know that it's missing the 2 options - because when I try it on other PCs - it works fine. So the behaviour is different (and works) on other computers.

And the stranger thing is; it also does not offer the options when I tried it with Chrome and Edge.

I tried clearing the history and cache - and it still gives the same behaviour.

I called the Tech Support of the website - and they said it's clearly a problem with my specific PC. I would tend to agree with them - because I can access their site without any issues on other PCs.

I can't figure out what's in common amongst the 3 browsers I tried on this LG laptop. The only thing I found in common is this laptop!

Any ideas - any thing I can try next? Really driving me nuts...  :)

Firefox Stops Loading New Websites after Background Update

I usually have Firefox open for 8 hours a day (open Firefox in the morning and close it in the afternoon). About once a week I'll notice that at some point during the day Firefox will just stop loading new websites. Existing sites will continue to function, and requests to those existing domains work. But new sites, that I didn't already have open, won't load at all; the tab will just sit there, thinking indefinitely (no errors).

When it does this I will try microsoft.com or google.com to check and make sure it isn't just the site, but those won't load either. I'll try it with a Private Window as well to the same effect (private window has no extensions enabled). Chrome/Edge still work fine during this. In order to get Firefox working again, I have to close Firefox and then usually force quit the process instances (or wait a long time for it to reopen on its own). Once reopened everything is back to normal and all sites load as normal.

I think this happens when Firefox loads a new update in the background. I've noticed on more than one occasion this behavior has coincided with a new Firefox version. In fact it just did it again (prompting this post) and when I got Firefox back open again it had a new update tab displayed. So I'm fairly sure it is the background updates causing this.

This behavior has been happening for a very long time. At least 6 months. Across many Firefox updates.

I have a separate Firefox profile that I load using a separate shortcut (with the -P property). When this behavior happens it often impacts both instances of Firefox. Not sure if this bug is related to having multiple profiles or not.

google.com and google related websites doesn't load at all. For example, gmail slowly loads, but loading icon never disappears, loading icon is always shown and then often it shows 'reconnecting' message. This works OK in Chrome.

Steps to reproduce: 1. Open Firefox without VPN - all loads well. 2. Enable VPN - stops loading. If I then disable VPN - it starts loading again.

If I restart Firefox it starts working OK, but after a while stops working again.

I'm running 96.0.3 on a fully patched Win 10 Pro system - both O/S and programs. When Firefox is running I'm getting these pop-up error messages randomly with changing content. They stay on screen for some seconds and then go away. Message states it's from (via) 5.back2yard.biz. I put that in my hosts file and I'm still getting them. My network is a cable modem hooked to Xfinity and then cable connected to another fully newer patched router. All addresses are 10. range. I ran both a Malwarebytes scan and a Windows Security scan - both are clean.

I'm unable to upload a small image after a hour so I'll give up on that right now.

I have stated this issue once before after trying to find a solution by myself.

My query: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363376

Whenever I boot up my laptop, firefox starts running in the background taking up a lot of memory space and cpu utilization. I have been with ffirefox since I started using laptops which is 7-8 years back. I never thought of switching browser or finding an alternative of firefox until for some months the issue is occurring. Now I am really annoyed to open up task manager every time and close firefox which is running in the backgroud. I have seen nothing unusual in the "about:performance" tab of firefox.

Please help me to continue my journey with firefox.

I use Kaltura to record lectures and post them to my course at the U of Utah on Canvas. This semester, Firefox will not allow me to open "my media" where the Kaltura recordings are posted on Canvas. I get the following message: It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies.

I copied the Kaltura web address 670542.kaf.kaltura.com that I can see in Chrome and pasted it into a Chrome browser and it goes to my recordings in Canvas when I use Chrome. The same site doesn't work in Firefox. How do I unblock Kaltura third party sessions? Thank you.
