hi. recently I have found that I can't load ebay correctly on Firefox, it loads fine on Edge. Other websites appear OK. I don't know how to describe the appearance - there are no images, only various numbered headings, and highlighted links.( I have taken a screenshot, but don't know how to save it in a format that can be loaded on to this page!). It has only been a problem for a few days. What to do??

A few weeks back, videos on some sites stopped working. Facebook and Netflix are notable examples, though YouTube doesn't seem to be affected. I've tried netflix in private mode (ie with extensions disabled) and have the same problem.

I'm running:

  • Firefox 79.0
  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • OpenH264 Video Codec add-on version 1.8.1.1
  • Widevine CDM add-on version 4.10.1582.2
  • libavcodec-extra and libavcodec-extra58 Ubuntu packages version 7:4.2.4-1ubuntu0.1

All the plugins have automatic updates enabled and I've checked that the "Play DRM-controlled content" option in firefox preferences is enabled.

Have I missed something I should check? Are others having this problem?

Hello. When I open a new tab in Firefox, there are top sites that I cannot remove. I have set for there to be 4 rows of top sites, but Amazon is not only not pinned, but when I try to dismiss it, nothing happens. I have tried clearing my history, and editing and replacing the link with another site only creates another Amazon top site square. Any help would be much appreciated as it is becoming a pet peeve! XD

Hello,

when I updated the Windows 10 to it's latest version, all websites stopped showing in the Firefox browser. When I try to type a url and press enter, nothing is showing up (https://imgur.com/13i6kNc). Extensions are also not showing up (https://imgur.com/gfVqWap). Not even Firefox settings (https://imgur.com/xO0D2cJ). Other browsers are working normally (I tried Internet Explorer 11, Google Chrome 84 and Opera 70).

Thank you for taking your time to read this.

Hello,

When I try to reload a webpage, I get the following message. This usually only happens after the computer has been asleep or the webpage has been inactive for a few hours. I've used this for several months in Firefox, without any issues until now. Can someone explain what is going on?


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to xxxxx.na90.content.force.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? xxxxx.content.force.com (Salesforce) has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

I was using Firefox in my computer and it was working fine. But after I migrated to windows 10 Os and installed Firefox, I am facing some issues with Firefox. First of all, the gmail.com page is not loading correctly (image added). Also some websites like geeksforgeeks and other websites are having trouble to show some images (mainly).

- what I tried doig previously. 1. Doing ctrl + shift + r on those pages 2. Uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with clearing firefox app data folder from windows computer. 3. Doing a refresh from help menu. 4. Tried running in safe mode. (disabling all extensions) 5. Clearing cache and data from firefox settings.

How how to show them perfectly. however they show good in chrome, but I want to use firefox. So a fix will be highly appreciated.

When you came up with the sync option, I did not store the 10 digit code... and at some point, a very long time after I joined the sync option, I lost the phone. I am not able to log in now with my user and am asking for any favour absolutely that you can do to get me back into sync with my original user ... bkisia@gmail.com.

Please, please, please. I am aware there are issues with this request, but this is the user I prefer because I receive all my emails here. Please.

It sounds like peak laziness, but I'm not a fan of opening a menu every time I want to change search engine nor do I want to use a prefix (though I suppose I wouldn't mind 'g' instead of '@google', 'ddg' instead of '@duckduckgo').

I'd like to have more than one search bar akin to the one you can choose adjacent to the address bar--each with its own search engine. If such a tweak doesn't exist browser-side or even addons-side, I suppose I wouldn't mind dabbling with the code if someone can tell me what file I'd have to go to in order to do this.

I regularly bounce between Google, Bing, and Duckduckgo as the search results vary with each (and, imo, Google has been less reliable as time goes by). Such a tweak would make browsing a lot more convenient for me.

I'm on Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon. Just upgraded to Firefox 79.0

Firefox opens no problem. I start to type in a url and it shows autocompletions like normal, but when I press enter, nothing happens. No processing indicator, just white screen. The same happens for `about` pages like about:config.

If I open a new tab or (private) window, I get the "Firefox has been updated in the background" message with the button to restart. Click it and it restarts in the same state.

I've double checked that when it closes, there are no firefox processes running.

Everything behaves the same if I start it from the command line with "firefox --safe-mode".

When started from the command line there is a slew of this error:

      1. !!! [Parent][MessageChannel] Error: (msgtype=0x390132,name=PContent::Msg_AsyncMessage) Channel error: cannot send/recv

Sorry if long-winded, just trying to provide pertinent info...


So, when I click on the bookmarks icon, I get the following options...

View Bookmarks Sidebar Show All Bookmarks Bookmarks Toolbar Other Bookmarks

The only one I ever use, the only one I need, is actually the Other Bookmarks folder.

This means I'm at minimum two clicks from my bookmarks, and three clicks from an actual bookmark.


My question...


How can I fix Firefox so that when I click on the Bookmarks icon it actually shows the bookmarks I seek to find, instead of all that other fluff I never use?


It'd be so nice to be only two clicks from a bookmark, thus...


1) Open Bookmarks icon 2) See my bookmarks


Thanks for any help you can provide here, as it is so annoying the way it is now.

Is there a pocket-free build of firefox available for download? Before you say, you can just disable it, I already have. In addition to that I've blocked the update/api url as well. I want it removed completely, I strong feel mozilla should make it opt-in or provide a pocket free build.

I was thinking perhaps there is a regulatory constraint on of the builds here that I could install, then change back to english?
