Please bring back "exceptions" to security blocks.

We are being forced to use alternate browsers due to lack of connection exceptions. I could bring up and use a site, but could NOT cancel a monthly recurrent charged membership due to FF connection "security" impositions.

I had to use Microsoft Edge to stop my credit card from being charged.

When you do not allow exceptions, you are absolutely dictating what we are "allowed" to connect to, as well as forcing the use of other browsers.

If some people are too stupid to have internet security, and too stupid to know better than to go to websites they do not know to be secure, and make an exception anyway, So be it on them. The rest of us do not want to be handicapped, having to jump through hoops to complete our business.

Firefox links play controls in different tabs. If I listen to music in one tab and watching video in another, when I pause video, music will stop. But if I want to stop one source to listen another it stops both. It's annoying. Can I fix it?

On late Monday this week, my Facebook pages were drastically altered by Facebook, later in the day. Earlier that day and ever since I have used Firefox as my browser, there were never any problems. I received a notice from Facebook, after I signed in again later in the evening that Facebook, that my browser is no longer supported by Facebook, so my pages were changed , "to offer a better experience " when using Facebook.. The pages are now narrowed, that I cannot read the entire comments anymore. I know that Firefox is indeed is a browser that is accepted by Facebook, so this is puzzling why this change was suddenly made. I have the browser updated with the latest update. I cleared my cache, as Facebook mentioned in the FAQ's, but it still is the same. Is there something I can do on my end to resolve this issue on my end? Facebook does not offer any help for specific questions, other than FAQ's. Thank you.

When I press ctrl+shift+s, I get a menu in the upper-right corner of the browser. It has a “Save full page” option. However, I still have to go and click on that.

Is there a shortcut to just directly take a screenshot of the whole page? Is there a way to configure such a shortcut if there isn’t one by default?

Thanks!

How can I restore or get back a folder in my bookmarks that had ALOT of favorite sites in it? I was in my bookmarks and accidentally deleted a ENTIRE folder of bookmarks (probably 100 saved websites). I dont remember when the last time I did a BACKUP of my favorites folder and I think that I added websites to the folder just within the past week. How can I get them back? There is no "Recycle bin-type thing to restore from. HELP!

Videos open when in safe mode.

Right, so, this is genuinely a weird one - Wherever the bottom of my scrollbar is, whenever I scroll, it will have a tearing effect on the text above and below it- as if its trying to decide "Am I up here? or down here?" I have no way of capturing this via screen shot, I've disabled Hardware acceleration for a previous issue (Firefox would flicker on certain pages, and outright crash). I can't find an issue with my graphics drivers, as everything else runs and works as standard as normal. It's only firefox that has this issue, as Edge and Chrome work perfectly fine.

After Firefox v82.0 installed itself it screwed up my LastPass. When I click on the LastPass icon it begins flickering up and down so fast that I can't see exactly where to click to continue with LastPass. I may have to click 10-20 times before I randomly hit the right place. LastPass apparently interprets each missed click as a log on attempt and has now locked me out of my account.

I don't have this problem with other browsers like Edge, but its too late for me now.

Weird problem: 'Search in page' (CTRL+F) orks fine on most pages but is not working on one particular page

The page search facility (Ctrl+F) works fine for most pages, but doesn't work on one particular page.

The page in question happens to be my home page and is one that I created via Macromedia Dreamweaver. It is my web portal containing numerous links (to all the sites I usually access).

I press Ctrl+F and the search box appears at bottom of screen, as usual. I enter a word in the search box, click the up and down arrows, but it doesn't find any matches, even though that word definitely exists on the page (multiple times). (The Highlight All, Match Case, Whole Words options are not selected). If I enable "Highlight All", nothing is highlighted.

This problem has surfaced in the last month or so. I suspect it may have crept in with a recent Firefox update, as this wasn't a problem in the past. My setup: Desktop PC, Win 10 (64bit), Firefox is 82.0 (64-bit) -the current version, and I'm using the Default Theme.

PS: I opened the same page with Microsoft Edge and the Page Search works fine there. .... but Firefox is my preferred browser, so I need to get to the bottom of this problem.

Any suggestions on how I can resolve this weird problem?

I don't even know how to ask the question. If I open more than 5-6 tabs, the browser slows to a crawl and task manager says Firefox is using 90% of all available RAM. This morning I had about 12-13 tabs open which is not unusual for me. From what I've read on the support site, Mozilla doesn't seem to have any answers. I would love to not have to use browsers from MSFT or GOOG but I guess it's time to start looking around. I simply cannot function for even one day without a browser. Too bad.

I have a weather page (https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/KIDPLACE7) that has worked for years but it suddenly stopped working a couple of weeks ago. When I enter the URL, the correct page flashes on the screen for 2-3 seconds and then goes to a 404 error. I've tried Firefox, Chrome and IE. They all do the same thing. My buddy, who lives a couple of blocks away, says it works fine at his house. Another friend in another town can also load the page. It's just not working on my computer despite my taking all the steps suggested to resolve the problem

I have also noticed recently that a lot of URLs fail the first time saying that my computer can't make a secure connection but I just refresh the page and it connects every time. Not so with my weather page.
