Hi,

As the title says, Firefox throws "We can’t connect to the server at m.imdb.com." error every time I try to open a page while everything else works like Chrome, Edge and when I ping via command prompt I get replies and other applications. (Win 10 64-bit with latest Firefox)

I think it's a system-wide problem but I can't figure out where. I was under the impression that it's a DNS problem but it doesn't even open IP addresses like 192.168.1.1 and it doesn't open instantly, no matter it's Google.com or my router IP, instant error message.

I tried everything I could find which are:

  • Refresh, clean re-install with deleting profile directory
  • clearing cache and data
  • Toggling these in about:config: network.http.http3.enabled, network.dns.disableIPv6, network.dns.disablePrefetch
  • Enabling/disabling my adapter
  • Running a couple commands:
   ipconfig /flushdns
   ipconfig /registerdns
   ipconfig /release
   ipconfig /renew

   netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
   netsh winsock reset catalog
   netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
   netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
  • Setting proxy to None
  • Restarting with Troubleshoot Mode (add-ons disabled)
  • Removing Firefox entry from Windows Firewall. (I haven't installed any Firewall and Anti-Virus)
  • WIndows's Network Reset
  • Rebooting machine and router

I'm sure there are more, these are all I can remember now.

This happened some months ago but can't seem to remember how I fixed it.

The only way it opens sites is with a VPN that sets a system proxy and setting Firefox's proxy to "Use System Proxy Settings".

Cheers

10 days ago firefox downloaded a new version. I thought I was selecting an update, but I got a Second version of Firefox. After backing up bookmarks, I deleted all of them and put another "new" version 64 bit. The website/search bar used to be on the menu Bar which I keep open all the time. These were at the top of the window. I also had a search bar at top, all the way to the right as facing it. NOW I can't seem to get the website input off the Bookmark toolbar and up to the top. I was able to get the separate search input box? What am I overlooking and I am think there is something easy I am missing. Pictures or a description of steps is helpful; I can't find a solution. MOZILLA didn't restrict placing this website box on the top menu bar, did they?

Thanks. Picture of browser is attached.

Hey, AI is taking over the internet and mega software houses have started to adapt Chat GPT or many other products of OpenAi, but Mozilla is still not getting in this field.

Is there any chance of Mozilla to acquire any feature of Open Ai or Chat GPT. There are many sites who are now providing different information of Chat GPT, but Mozilla is invisible so far.

Why is it so?

Reinstalled windows on my computer and installed firefox just now. Done this procedure multiple times, not new to me. What is however new, is that firefox seemingly wiped my complete backup from my account in Firefox sync, theres nothing left and obviously I did not create a manual backup of all my Firefox data because I already did this procedure 5-10 times in the past.

I am absolutely furious right now, its not just the saved pages, many of which are needed for work, but also the countless number of saved login details.

I need help desperately right now before I completely uninstall everything Firefox related and never touch it again.

Congratulations your browser is useless thanks to your latest update. I am unable to open numerous sites that EDGE, Chrome and Opera open without issue. Firefox is my default browser. I'm about to switch to something else permanently because you've made it a total pain in the ass to use.

Tell me where are my bookmarks and how to get them back. The directions listed are not working. The problem started with horrendous slowness, which I tried to address with Troubleshooter. And then layout changed, bookmarks disappeared and on-line fixes are not working. Getting my bookmarks back is rather freaking important. Any productive solutions?

I watch a live stream from back in the UK from talkSPORT daily. Lately I noticed that my video rate was too low and the play back was skipping and stopping. I run a 64gb Nvidia graphic card so it cant be that.

I normally run firefox and it's always the latest release. Today I tried it out on Chore and I had zero issues withe playback.

I can only come to the conclusion that firefox has cocked summat up. This is only been happening for the past past month or two.

I don't know if it's anything to due with Nvidia software or not but it needs to be sorted out. I've been using firefox since it started. I'm used to the ecosystem. I don't want to have to adjust to chrome.
