Firefox 126.0 on a Windows 10 22H2

Hi I have been using Firefox maybe for 20 years... and I noticed in the last possibly 5 years has started to have problems after problems. More like bothers and I am not the only one!

Problems with YouTube videos either not loading properly or no audio and so on, tamed down at present! At some point I stopped using it years ago, then got back to it, but since I did a series of different things/work via browsers, I now have some others set to do one task/work.

Firefox is not only the ;standard browser for 'browsing' and basic shopping.

Anyway, this time from yesterday, DuckDuckGo Search not working any more.

There have not been any Windows or Security updates yesterday.

Any other search add-on works fine, but DuckDuckGo.

What I did:

1. Restarted browser - the obvious one 2. I do not really need to clear Cookies as I use an add on that does it for me as soon as I close a tab or browser 3. Downloaded 126.0 and re-installed it on top 4. No new add-ons were installed, but IU also re-started with all add-ons off 5. Cleared history - everything 6. Internet is fine, reset it - just in case, but also tested on other devices and DuckDuckGo works fine 7. My security is not blocking anything

Has Firefox 126.0 had an heart attack overnight, meaning there is a bug that comes out in certain conditions?

I just get from DuckDuckGo: There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.

Any other Search work, even the less known such as Qwant and Mojeek. No idea. I wasted so much time... again.

Thank you M

PS I may have missed other things I did try and I may amend this post or add posts, if I cannot edit.

Hello,

We have a client using Azure Virtual Desktops. Most of the users prefer to use Firefox. We are having an issue that anytime we update Firefox and reimage the virtual hosts. When the users login they get a new Firefox profile. We have to remote in and copy their old profile data to the new profile.

Is there a better way for us to handle Firefox and profiling in and Azure Virtual Desktop deployment?

Had an update for Firefox happen last night and now the Duck Duck Go extension will not work. Just goes search not found?

Here is the error - There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again. When I turn off the extension Firefox runs fine.

I had turned off the extension first and turned back on same issue. Removed extension and reloaded same issue. Restarted router same issue. I have uninstalled Firefox and then reloaded same issue with Duck. Duck Duck Go works in my Edge browser

When we enter a search query on mobiles or on PC using Firefox we get:-

There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.

This started happening today at about 10:45 (BST+2) Using Safari or the Galaxy search engine or using Chrome on the PC works fine.

At first we thought it might be a local problem so we re-booted our router - no result. We re-set Firefox on the PC - no result (anyway it is generalised).

Curiously WhatsApp is still connected (had to re-connect after re-set). So what is going on please?

I use DuckDuckGo for my basic search engine on both my laptop (Ubuntu system) and iPhone 8. It does not work today - saying "There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.", needless to say...I have tried a number of times and differed the searches to no avail. I also cleared recent cache/history. Still stuck. Searching on Chrome I see on https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=40451490 that others are also experiencing this problem and do not understand it either - just a few entries

The Sun (a rather populist newspaper in UK) has an article saying it is international and happening today, 23 May 2024, suggests no fixes. (Not exactly a reliable source in my thing)

Has anyone ideas or should I just wait and use an alternative search engine meanwhile? Thanks for any help

I am forced to switch over to the browser Brave, have been a true Firefox supporter but am unable to change the background from dark back to light, this has nothing to do with the computer desktop settings since Brave, Edge and Google Chrome all are still running with the light background. Please help since I find this unacceptable, have problems reading with the dark background. Regards, Art.

I've used Weebly for website building for many years. After the latest Firefox upgrade, the Weebly editor display labels are overwritten with other text, as in the attached images. I've checked on Chrome, Safari and Vivaldi browsers, none of which have the same problem. Opening in safe mode has the same effect.

This profile is in use in another application and it cannot be deleted.

I have searched the Mozilla support site and can't figure out what application is using that profile.

I'm using: Macbook Pro Mac OS Sonoma 14.0 Firefox v 126.0 (64-bit)

Please help! Thank you! Jordan

This current version of Firefox (126.0) is preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing/displaying in ANY Yahoo! article. After I finished reading a Yahoo! article, the Yahoo! Comments is viewed but upon clicking on Comments, it just disappeared. It happens in any Yahoo! article with Comments. I used Safari to see if I experience similar issue but Safari is able to show/display Yahoo! Comments upon clicking on them. I have no other browser plug-in or app in Firefox preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing, it seems to be a Firefox JavaScript issue.
