I use Outlook web email for a part-time role, which is set up by the organisation.

Outlook highlights incorrect spelling by underlining in red. However, when right-clicking on a word to check the spelling, I'm given various text options, such as "Font", "Emojis" etc. No spell-check!

On opening their Help facility, and typing Spell Check in the search box, this is the response....

"There is no spell check option in Outlook on the web. To check your spelling, you'll need to use your web browser. Spell checking is available in Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 10 and later versions, and current versions of Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Check the options for your web browser to learn more about how to check spelling.

I'm using W10 Pro, and Firefox 114.0.1 with an update pending, which will be done after writng this message!

Please help!!

I get an e-mail each day from The History Channel. Up until maybe four months ago I never had an issue, but recently I get the message Something Went Wrong Setting Up a Google DAI Stream as pictured below. I've got the latest Mozilla FireFox browser and Windows Home Edition 10. I can't quite figure out what is causing this. The link below works fine in Chrome and Edge. Any ideas for me? I prefer the FF browser. Thanks. - John

Every time I open my home page, which is google, the address bar automatically fills in the following string https://www.google.com/ . Then, as the cursor is already there, if I start typing, it just types before that string and does not take me where I want to go.

On my son's firefox homepage, the address bar is always blank and that is what I need this to be.

How do I make sure my address bar is completely blank when I open a new tab or go to my homepage?

I can't load any websites this morning. I keep getting the 'secure connection failed" error. I can't even get into gmail. I notice there was an update to firefox yesterday. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled firefox, but I still get the error. How can I get my firefox to work again. It was working fine yesterday before the automatic update.

Greetings:

Win11Enterprise_X64 , Firefox 114.0.2 (64-bit). Restart in safe mode yields the same result.

"Clear Cache and cookies": Now, I very often have this issue. I have 38 auto-logged in pinned tabs, of various sites, most of primary importance. Clearing the cookies ... is not quite an option, as this logs me out, what means, I have to manually log in to each site I am logged into right now.

Seeing this is a returning issue, which in my case happens quite a whole lot, and often to others (though likely in less amounts due to the fact I have many sites auto-logged in pinned and open)( I am wondering:

What exactly causes this? And since this is a recurring issue, not just for me, how come this has not been solved yet? I mean, there has to be a way, it can be fixed, right?

Seeing I do not add new extensions, and those I have do not update that often, it is not the add-ons. This is further proven by the fact that Safe Mode yields the same result.

Thus ... it is either caused within Mozilla Firefox, OR some site giving out "naughty cookies" that kill the button functions.

If the first: Then Mozilla has to fix this. If the latter, then Mozilla can create a system that "nukes" the naughty cookies. Call it for instance "The Sinterklaas Protection" (It's the Dutch Santa Claus version, who has a bag to put "naughty kids" in. Seems fitting. bagging "Naughty Cookies").

Thoughts?

Also, is there a way we can overcome this, an add-on or such?

Thank you: Xog.

Firefox is not displaying all ICONs and color from websites like Office 365. ICON show as text boxes and the one line version of Excel will not display color. I have included pictures of both. Both show correctly in all other browsers. I prefer Firefox but with these issues, I cannot use it. I also notice that on this page after I uploaded the pictures only a - showed for each. I have also noticed that when checking boxes or making selections for many sites there is no indication of the selection being made. For instance, I clicked the e-mail me box but no check appeared so please e-mail me anyway.

Thank You

This often happens when I’m using it to play music. It’s also restarted when I’m trying to watch a video, read a web page or, once, when I was part way through setting up login details for a new bank account. I want to apply updates when it’s convenient for me, not when Firefox decides to update. So, how do I prevent my activities being interrupted by Firefox update?

I appreciate that it’s important to keep it up to date but I’m not happy when my activities are interrupted because Firefox decides that it needs to update itself. I suppose one approach would be to apply updates every day when I start Firefox however; I often have a specific task in mind when I start it so I really don’t want the distraction of having to update first.

Here’s what I’ve tried so far. None of these have stopped Firefox restarting itself:

On the Settings page: Select “Check for updates but let you choose to install them” Disable “Use a background service to install updates”

Since the above didn’t stop the Firefox restarts, I tried: Select “Automatically install updates (recommended)” with “When Firefox is not running”

In 'about:config' : Set 'app.update.auto', to FALSE. Set ‘app.update.background.interval’ to 31536000 (i.e. 1 year) Set ‘app.update.interval’ to 31536000 (i.e. 1 year)

       Set 'app.update.auto.migrated' to FALSE.

In Windows Registry Editor, set: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000001

Used Win 10 to disable the “Mozilla Maintenance Service”: FF still restarts when I’m trying to use it. Also renamed the updater exe to: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\updaterXXX.exe": auto update still runs (and installs a new updater.exe).

The 2 websites listed at the end of this post refuse to load. Both of them lock up with the spinning wheel that never goes anywhere. I have turned off Enhanced Tracking and I have refreshed the pages multiple times. Both websites are accessible via MS Edge. Can you please fix the glitch? The B&N website will display but refuses to accept any log in input (both manual data entry, BitWarden copy and paste entry, and BitWarden auto entry) Thank you. Problem websites are: https://www.citi.com/login?loginscreenId=ATTuniversal and https://www.barnesandnoble.com/

Computer is WIN 11 Dell and everything has been updated (FF, MS updates, Dell updates). Antivirus suite is AVG. Firewall settings have been double checked. Enhanced Tracking has been turned off.

I am running FF 114.0.2 on MacOs 13.4. Almost daily but more so after a weekend when unlocking my mac my firefox says it can't connect. No sites load, nothing works until i kill it from the Activity Monitor and restart it and it works fine. Chrome running next to it has no issue resuming its connection.

I have tried everything i can think off and nothing makes it work as it should after the mac sleeps.

When using Firefox browsing, every so often, on the left hand margin of the active window, a half of a black dot protrudes, about half way down the window, and then pulls back to disappear. The whole episode lasts about a second.

Certainly not a big deal. I am just curious as to why that happens. I have also noticed it on the right hand side. I don't know, either, if they happen at the same time.

Thank you for your help.

Hello, I have used Firefox since it's inception and love it! However, with version 114 I have noticed two issues with Facebook. 1.) When trying to open messages in Facebook I get "Couldn't load chats" (see attached screen shot) 2.) When trying to do a "Search Facebook" on any of my friends in Facebook I get "This page isn't available right now" but if I search on some place I haven't been before like a company, new outlet etc etc it brings up their info just fine. These two issues DO NOT happen with using Safari or Chrome. Hope someone can help as I want to keep using Firefox and Facebook. Thank you, Alan

I have over 30 address books (the indexed Nickname field having been removed, I have been faithful to Thunderbird this long).
