I often see a Shortcut on my New Tab that I have never gone to, which says "sponsored" on it. I do not want these ads. I have looked up the answer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sponsor-privacy?as=u&utm_source=inproduct I can manually delete a sponsored shortcut once, but this does not stop them from coming onto future New Tabs. My problem is, the long-term answer simply does not work. Settings -> Home -> Firefox Home Content simply does not contain a section that says "Sponsored shortcuts" and therefore this solution is not accessable. I am on Version 120 as suggested. What is going wrong? How do I prevent these ads from appearing on the New Tab page?

I am using firefox 120.0 version. I use OneDrive extensively, but now when I open a folder and type my info to search on. It no longer works. I have cleared cache. I have uninstalled/reinstalled. Power off/Power on my system. Confirmed I am using the latest version. The search on OneDrive works in Chrome, but I prefer using Firefox. Any other suggestions I can try?

Thanks

I need to turn off use Firefox email mask... I can't STAND being prompted to use Firefox email mask but I can't find a way to turn off that prompt.

JUST STOP THAT! It's infuriating that you're trying to force me to use something I DO NOT WANT!

I have been having with YouTube for a couple of days. It asks to turn off ad blockers. I have done so and it still requests to turn ad blockers and still won't allow viewing. YouTube works on other browsers.

I am sure YouTube is playing games but can you help?

Video Content (Twitter/X, Youtube, Previews) Stop Working

So I just picked up a new laptop (ASUS Vivobook 16x), and everything is fresh on it. Additionally, this only affects some video content in Firefox, with Edge browser unaffected. In brief, what is happening is that within a couple hours of having the browser open, certain video content stops working, specifically Twitter/X videos just spin, YouTube previews stop working, and videos continually load. Netflix videos continue to work, but hover previews stop functioning. I even check the 'Stats for Nerds' on YT and it shows 0 KB network activity in Firefox.

I've tried every basic action I can think of:

  • Turning off extensions (only use Ublock and Bitwarden)
  • Browser Refresh (x3)
  • Reverting from 120.1 to 120.0, and now 199.0.1
  • Clearing the browser cache
  • Reinstalling NVidia and Intel Drivers
  • Running in Safe Mode

Only by doing a refresh or completely closing/opening the app gets videos to function again. This doesn't affect the old laptop or my desktop, which makes me think it's a rogue driver--but then why would Edge function without error over the same period of time?

Are there any settings to play with in the browser that can help diagnose?

When I try to open a link from an external software, in my case mostly discord, that which I click on, I get the profile manager opened, ask for which profile I should open from. If I already have the Firefox window for that profile open, I have to close the whole window and then it opens with all the tabs with a tab for the link I clicked on.

I would like to open tabs like how Chrome does, not asking for profile (yes, I know, I can just make things open on only one profile but I want to choose which one I want it to every single time without manager) and instead opens up from the profile window that I just had on.

I would like to open external links on an existing window and not close to open it.

So, ultimately, make my Firefox open link from the latest profile window I was on, and it does not require to close an existing window to open the link.

I can log into preply.com with Chrome and Edge, but always have problems with Firefox. I was able to log in once, but after that, I can't log back in.

Recently I had to reinstall Windows, and saw the opportunity to try getting this to work. Installed Firefox, but *before* I logged into Mozilla Sync (so I'm working with a 100% fresh installation with no history of having Firefox installed) I tried to log into preply.com. It worked. Then, I log myself out and try to log in again, and once more, I can't log back in. I'm attaching a screenshot of what I see when I try. Please note -- I have no bookmarks, no extensions, no addons, no browser history. Everything is tabula rasa.

I found this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-login-issues-on-websites-require-passwords

and followed it to the letter, meticulously, to no avail. I still can't log into the site with Firefox. Chrome and Edge, yes. Firefox no. I only have Edge because I can't uninstall it. I only have Chrome for situations like this, where Firefox doesn't work. Firefox is my main browser, and I really, really would like to figure out what's happening. I can't understand how this problem persists when the browser is freshly installed; I haven't imported one bit of data yet from my sync account.

Can someone more experienced than me please help?

As of 21/11/2023, I can no longer use several chat services that had previously worked on Firefox, for example Santander bank and EDF. Plus, the POWR widget has stopped working on one of my favourite websites.... it used to pull in the charity's Facebook content but now all I see is the text and no imagery. All of these functionalities work fine in Google Chrome and Edge so what's wrong please? Thanks in advance UF https://www.aldingbournetrust.org/make.html
