Hi, Since the latest update of my Firefox browser to 105.0.1 (64 bit) on my Mac with operating system 10.13.6 I'm getting messages as the enclosed picture. It appears on upper right corner when I open Firefox. It comes with a sound signal. It appears many times in one hour. How to get rid of that problem? I have another application, from Sophos, to protect from viruses and other attacs. Sophos say that there are no problems. My Mac is clean. Possible to sort out the problem, please?

The message in Swedish translated to English: "McAfee: Firewall crashes via musicinmysoul.biz TROJAN-virus detected. Click here..." McAfee is not installed in my Mac...

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

I've taken a number of steps that I've researched ranging from clearing cookies, to resetting firefox, to complete reinstallation of Firefox itself.

I've also ran a full diagnostic with my ISP and determined my router and internet are 100% functional. This just started happening out of nowhere roughly 3-4 days ago.

I have not installed any add ons or turned on any extentions. I've done nothing to customize my browser at all.

When I go to Youtube, either I can't log in or when I am logged in it says I am not connected to the internet. This has never happened to me before.

Please help.

Under Windows 10 Home, Firefox x64 opens and closes immediately as a limited user. As the administrator this does NOT happen.

I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the temp files and re-installed a fresh copy of Firefox. The same issue exists. If I try to start in safe mode as a limited user, Firefox does NOT open.

Firefox worked without issue yesterday. Has a Windows Update caused this issue? The computer is new with limited programs installed. It can't be the firewall as running Firefox as administrator has NO issues.

What do you suggest?

When I use WhatsApp Web, if I play a video someone sent to me or in a group, I can't pause the video. Besides that, when the playback reaches the end, it starts playing the video again (in loop). It happens both when opening the video (normal mode) and when using picture-in-picture mode. I've already tried to run FF in Troubleshoot Mode, to see if the culprit was any of the extensions I have, but no, the problem persists. I've also tested it in other browsers (e.g. Edge) and the problem didn't occur, so it doesn't seem to be something related to the website.

FF version is 105.0.1 64-bit, running on Windows 11. But I already had the same problem with earlier FF versions and on Windows 10.

A website I use has support chat that uses gosquare. On my desktop Mac OS FF, it only shows single line of text area no matter how much text I type. My MacBook Air FF works fine (synced and therefore has the same extensions installed). Safari, Chrome, and Brave all shows it properly. It's only the desktop Mac FF that's showing this error.

I've been opening Safari whenever I need to contact support for a while, but it's very cumbersome as FF is my main browser and one that's open all the time.

Hardware acceleration is already off on both desktop and MacBook Air so that's not the issue.

I have no idea how to read the developer codes, but enabled developer tools out of curiosity in console mode. I see bunch of yellow boxes with error messages saying:

Loading failed for the <script> with source "https://data2.gosquared.com/......." and a long line of URL.

The same message appears to be repeating about 5 to 6 times.

What could be causing this error?

Just tried doing the same on the MacBook Air and it's showing the same yellow boxes so I'm not sure even if this is a symptom of the problem.

I'm stumped. If I must, I can use other browser for the support chat feature, but if someone could point me in the right direction to get this resolved, I'd very very grateful.

Thanks.

Whats going on with this,and why is this even happening? Its also saying i used a tablet or mobile device to sign in twice,and i dont ever do that. How can i get it back to the way its always been? Have tried googling all of this but it happens on its own,and sometimes it doesn,t after i sign out of the html ,and reboot,but its unpredictable,and its like stuff has been altered. Thankyou.

Same as this problem: [hidden]

My taskbar is set to auto hide and I want to keep it that way. Other chromium based browsers does not have this problem. When I hover my mouse to the bottom of the screen, the Windows 10 Taskbar won't appear. Only when I press the windows key, then it appears. This has been happening on both of my computer for a long time now and it's very frustrating. I am sure I am not in full screen mode. Restarting the browser, or windows explorer or the PC doesn't work. Reinstalling FF also does not work. Finally trying to switch completely to FF but this is keeping me from doing it. Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox for Windows hangs when I copy text, either by Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C or by using a right-click menu. The browser just stops responding. It doesn't crash. Eventually, it will return and behave normally.

I tried removing all extensions and closing all open tabs. No change. I'm out of ideas. I suspect it may be trying to synchronize with something it can't find or there's network latency. Task Manager shows it's using a lot of resources. It doesn't do it every time, just often enough to be frustrating.
