I have added DuckDuckGo to Firefox for my search engine. Would this be the cause. If not, what do I need to do to resolve?

I recently have problems with firefox 88/W10 not opening any more, i.e. clicking on pictures (top left one) or "+lees de volledige omschrijving" in https://www.funda.nl/koop/vaassen/huis-41386015-marijkeweg-48/?utm_source=vof_mail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=funda&utm_content=object&utm_he=4756f023d574

The links work on edge.

I see the same problem in my android mobile firefox, while chrome works on the mobile.

Any ideas? Cheers

Using two computers containing up-to-date Windows 10 and up-to-date Firefox 88.0(64-bits) I try to get an url ending .aspx on my screen. The desktop shows a proper picture and the laptop shows all words and names separately on the first column of my screen. I guess there must be some difference in the Firefox adjustments between both computers, but could not find any. The string aspx does not appear in either about:config. Can anyone tell me how to adjust my laptop to show a proper display?

I used to right click within a website to display a separate window which f.e. showed all the media that is on that website. I don't know what the option is called as it doesn't exist anymore in the currect version (88.0), so I can't lookup and I used the dutch version. I really used that function, the developers window is not what I mean and far more complicated.

I have to access a number of HTTP (not S) servers on a private work network. The URLs all look like http://resource.infra.example.com. Using Firefox 88.0 the protocol URL is automatically changed to https:// and I get an error "Unable to connect. Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at recourse.infra.example.com". This makes sense because these servers are not HTTPS, but Firefox's behavior seems broken.

I *do* get redirected with a fresh profile in Firefox 88.0. I *do* get redirected in safe mode in Firefox 88.0. I *do* get redirected in Firefox 89.0b4. I *do* get redirected in >= 88.0 regardless of whether HTTPS Only is enabled in Preferences (if it's enabled I get the new HTTP warning, and then I get redirected to HTTPS) I *don't* get redirected in Firefox 87.0 (regardless of profile or safe mode) I *don't* get redirected in Safari and Chrome. I *don't* get redirected by curl. Inspecting these sites's headers with curl gives:

$ curl -sI http://resource.infra.example.com HTTP/1.1 200 OK Content-Length: 4198 Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8 Date: Wed, 28 Apr 2021 02:43:01 GMT Etag: W/"1066-CEROUmmTJBPO73vecAgQwYdTSow" Vary: Accept-Encoding X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff X-Dns-Prefetch-Control: off X-Download-Options: noopen X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN X-Xss-Protection: 1; mode=block

It seems like something changed in 88.0, but I don't see anything related to HTTPS in the 88.0 release notes: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/88.0/releasenotes/.

What changed? How can I fix it?

I am finding many websites do not work properly with Firefox and I am forced to use Chrome. I had contacted support for each website with which I had problems and they all told me to try Chrome. In every instance Chrome worked but Firefox did not.

A few examples of problems: I am unable to log-in on one site, I cannot put any item I want to purchase into the shopping cart of 2 other sites, I can't place a for sale ad in my local newspaper and today I was told I can no longer use Firefox for my webmail account. If I don't use Chrome I can't load new messages or compose messages. Please help.

Thank you!

When I go to Twitch i get the same channels recommended everywhere on my homepage...

Basically the site loads the same 3 to 4 channels and shows those same channels under literally every category on the homepage. And when I'm logged in it only shows me 2 channels under everything.

I've tried basically everything at this point > Loading Twitch when logged out, loading Twitch in a private window, loading Twitch in troubleshoot mode, disabling all cookie related settings and/or add-ons and trying to load Twitch that way. It happens in all of these instances.

I'm completely out of ideas as to what would cause this to happen.

I am currently using the latest version of Firefox Nightly, any help is much appreciated!

The absolute weirdest problem. If I'm on the Brita website (brita.com) and type in another url to navigate away, I press enter, and it just refreshes the same page I was on. This happens across the brita.com domain, regardless of what url I type in, even if I type the full url (including https://www.), and if I click a search or url suggestion in the dropdown, even in a private window, anything. This has never happened to me with any other website.

Obviously I can just close the tab and open another, but this is strange enough I figured I'd see if anyone could figure it out (or at least replicate my experience). I would appreciate any insights!

If I have a VPN installed and running on my PC at the time that I attempted this connection, then wouldn't you expect that I would receive such a warning? Please advise by replying to johnspitters@yahoo.com.

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

Like many users, I find Google's 'before you continue' pop-up annoying. Because I automatically delete cookies on browser exit, it keeps popping up as it doesn't remember my settings. I have installed Google Consent Dialog Remover, and it has been working well... until now.

I just did a search for a place, and tried to click on the map to go to Google Maps. The dialog intruded, despite the add-on. But worse than that, when I clicked 'I agree', nothing happened! I cannot get to the maps page at all. I've tried disabling enhanced protection -- no change. I've tried disabling various add-ons -- no change. I've tried restarting FF in safe mode, but the same problem persists.

I can't figure out how this is happening or what to do about it. Any suggestions?

Thank you!
