Why do I get this message when I try to go to NBT Banks website: The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to nbtbank.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I only get this on my laptop, my desktop works fine. The settings on both browsers are set the same.

Fortunately, this situation is not happening across all websites, but on those that it does, I haven't been able to find a solution, yet.

As the title suggests, I copy a piece of text/paragraph from said website, and when I paste it in a word processor such as Pages or Text Edit (both Mac apps), the text is aligned to the left. The goal is to be able to paste said text with a justified alignment (predefined on the paragraph of the open document). It used to work flawlessly up until two months ago.

I'm don't know if some Firefox update caused this or maybe some extension might be interfering (I have checked the installed extensions and none of them appear to be the cause, but maybe it is the case). Either way, I've checked the same websites on Chrome and this issue is not happening there, so clearly it's browser related.

Any guidance, tips or help is very appreciated. Thank you.

For the last few versions of FF (currently on 88.0.1 (64-bit) OSX Big Sur) certain websites display text incorrectly where the text is bold and each character is offset with the next one (see attached Images).

It only seems to happen to certain websites and happens both within my web based email and on standard websites - but only some of them.

I've attached a photo of the issue in my webmail - I'm viewing an email sent to me using mailchimp, but even this is inconsistent as other emails using mailchimp are fine. And as I said before it happens on websites too (examples attached).

I have this issue on my 2020 iMac and my 2020 M1 MacBook Air but not on my 2019 iMac. All 3 are running latest version of FF and all synced to my FF account and have all the same settings. Attached photo of plugins/extensions installed too.

Please help me fix this it's so frustrating!

Thanks

Hey folks,

Hope everyone is doing well.

The title pretty much sums it up. When I right click on a link to select "open link in new tab" (or other selection), the menu seems to open just beneath the cursor causing an instantaneous selection (usually opens a new tab). I've tried using the browser without any extensions and the problem keeps occurring (just happened now when I tried to select the correct spelling for occurring).

This only seems to happen with Firefox.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.

I've been a long time Firefox user since around 2005 and have always enjoyed Firefox until now. This issue has been ongoing for over a year though. I never would have thought that a simple task as entering a web address in the address bar and hitting enter would become so difficult, though for a while now this seems to be the case and to the point to where I'm considering not bothering with the Firefox browser anymore. I do enjoy where Firefox is now in current development and the way it looks as well the great performance. However, when basic functionality such as typing in a web address and hitting enter becomes difficult all the aforementioned positives become less and less relevant. It seemed to all start when development came to redesign the appearance of the UI, not sure what version. Basically, what I come to experience now roughly 90 percent of the time I type a web address in the address bar and hit enter is the browser does nothing. Sometimes it takes 5 to 6 tries with having to put the mouse courser back into the address bar and hitting enter multiple times before the browser decides it want's to go the website. Same issue occurs when opening a bookmark in another tab, switch to the tab and the site isn't loaded, have to hit enter multiple times before the web address will begin to load. Seems also that any setting regarding tabs background loading isn't present anymore in the settings either. Same issue will occur when selecting a favorite that comes up while typing in the address bar.

Recently I had reinstalled my entire operating system and was hopeful that this issue would be resolved by doing so with a fresh install of Firefox too, though the issue is still present.

I have no add-ons or themes that modify the address bar, nor any search add-ons. In fact, this issue occurs with no add-ons installed at all. The only thing I can think currently is that it is an issue and or bug of some kind within the search and or address bar settings current design.

My settings here are attached as images.

The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?
