I'm having a problem where certain websites does not show up as shortcuts on the startpage. Like for example reddit.com or twitter.com does not appear even though I visit those pages often and more than any other page. It doesn't make sense that a random website shows up immediately as I visit it once, but not the websites I visit often. So I have to type in manually in the search bar to get there instead of just clicking the shortcut on the startpage.

I COULD pin the websites on the startpage, but the pictures only show up as the automated pictures such as "R" or "T" for Reddit and Twitter respectively. I'm also having problems using my own pictures for the shortcuts and I'd rather fix the problem instead of having to pin websites as shortcuts. It also looks a bit ugly in my opinion.

This started happening after I switched Microsoft accounts on my PC and started using Firefox on another user account. By the time I switched, I was logged into the same account on two different users on my PC, and I synchronized several times. That other logged in user is now removed from my Firefox account and I also completely deleted the other user on my PC to free up space. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and deleted all the files on my PC, but it still doesn't work. I have checked in about:profiles and it says there is a "default-release" and "default" profile.

Moin! I have been having a problem with downloading things from the Internet with the Firefox browser for some time now. It fails every time. I have reinstalled the browser, I have started it in safe mode. In other browsers the download works as usual, but not in Firefox. I have also reset my network settings, both on the computer and on the router, nothing seems to help. DNS does not work either.

Kind regards, Kevin

Windows 11 Pro - Firefox blocks Instagram.

I have no site blocks on or in my Firefox browser. There aren't any plug-ins enable or preventing Firefox from opening Instagram and sometimes other sites, yet it does this now. Whether it is 1 tab or 8 tabs, the outcome is the same.

I've cleared the cache (daily), browser cookies, temp files (daily) and even restarted my computer many times, yet this issue still persists.

I have attached the error message and proof that I have the latest Firefox update.

Note: Other web browsers I use, don't have this issue. This issue is only with Firefox.

Please help me resolve this issue. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Firefox, specifically the Windows version, has started generating PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR errors on https:// web sites. What I find interesting is that Firefox says the page is not secure in the address bar - even though the page is secure. Firefox on Mac and IOS do not have this issue. I'm also running Bitdefender Anti-virus with Encrypted Web scan. With that feature turned off, blocked pages seem to work. I found yesterday that logging out of Sync while Encrypted Web scan is on allowed the blocked pages to load.

I deleted Firefox and re-installed it, thinking I'd fixed the problem. No such luck. I've tried all the other fixes I can find but none of them work. This is clearly a Firefox issue and not an issue with Bit Defender since it only occurs (and has been widely reported for years) with Firefox for Windows.

On a side note, even support.mozilla.org gets blocked.

Anyone have a real fix that will work?

I've used Firefox daily for more than 15 years. Suddenly, it locked me out and covers my screen with a dropdown asking for a Master Password. There is no way to get past it as I have no record of ever having or using one. eMails to Mozilla about this have gone unanswered. I am happy to erase and replace, but then I lose all the Passwords I have stored Firefox . How do I get the words I need and get to the Passwords? Thank you.

My Firefox browser recently automatically updated. Subsequent to the update, I could no longer upload photos and insert (in-line) them into the body of gmail emails. It would indicate that "There was an upload error" (see attached photo). The photos are all small JPGs about 300kb in size. This issue was not present in older versions of Firefox.

Troubleshooting and reading a bunch of articles indicated the problem was not with Google gmail, but instead a fault with the latest version of Firefox.

I then used both Microsoft Edge and Chrome browser, which allowed me to successfully insert inline photos, so it is clear the issues are with the latest version of Firefox.

Is there a work-around or patch I can download for Firefox to fix this, or, should I just quit using Firefox and instead use Micro-Edge or Chrome for emails?
