I have had this problem many times and for a long time, ever since starting to use Firefox again (SEE Image $20210320-mar~3-Download-Partial_Split_Problem.jpg).

I end up with 2 Dwnlded Files; 1 file ending in ".exe", but with a 0 KB File size, and another file ending in ".exe.part", with the file size that the Dwnlded file should have, in this case, 622 MB. I have no wish to "fudge" a fix, by renaming the file with a size of 622 MB, in case this causes corruption, or maybe down the line.

I would like a "real" fix, so the problem does not occur in the 1st place.

I've had Firefox installed and working in W-10 for a long time, yesterday it suddenly got minimized to the task bar and nothing I tried would open it. I had to use Chrome to search for advice, and it turns out that other users had the same problem. I tried the suggestions (alt-spacebar-move) etc. but nothing worked. I had to got to "Uninstall" and the opted for the "Refresh" function to restore Firefox to a functional Browser. It's now working again, but what caused it? and is it likely to happen again? Thanks for your attention  :)

Spectrum.net has changed their login page as of March 17, 2021. I am unable to login under Firefox and get Spectrum error 'IDID-1060'. I tried Edge and Chrome browsers with no problems. I contacted Spectrum and they say it's a Firefox issue. I've tried removing extensions, clearing caches, starting in Firefox 'safe mode', disable VPN but nothing works! I would prefer NOT to reset Firefox as I don't want to lose my changes. I'm on version Firefox 86.0.1 and Windows 10 20H2. Does anyone else have this problem or can suggest other troubleshooting ideas?

Hello you smart people at Mozilla or others, When opening a page on ebay, after signing in to review my purchases, the page displays correctly when clicking further to open the link to review an item or to contact the seller the page is completely distorted and improperly presented. Thinking it was the site I connected with Chrome which loads it perfectly. So it must be a problem with Firefox browser.

Best regards to those that can figure this out!

Hello, It seems that since Firefox updated to 86.0.1 64bit I can not longer play videos on FOX News. I do have uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger and I have used them for years. By trial and error of disabling each of my addons one by one to see which one could be the culprit I found that by turning off uBlock I am able to play Fox News videos. I kept Privacy Badger turned on and it blocks the advertisements and trackers and I can view Fox News videos with that. I would also like to add that I have not changed any settings in my Options. bold text Now I have noticed the same problem with Edge Chromium in viewing Fox News videos and I had to turn off uBlock and turn on Privacy Badger for that browser in order to see them on Edge. I have always used Firefox for years as my default browser. Does anyone else have this problem or do you have any info on whether Fox News has done something with there site to where you can no longer use Adblockers like UBlock. I have no problems with viewing videos on any other website i.e. YouTube. Thank you for your time in reading this and for any info.

Regards

FIREFOX even in safe mode failing to allow login to Spectrum.net. EDGE and OPERA do allow, problem began approximately 3-14-2021. The login process ends up with a message "We're sorry, something has gone wrong. Please try again." LASTPASS is NOT the cause.

Thanks Fred, but none of the suggestions helped, and most of them did not apply. The site does load, but the verification process acts differently now than it previously did (and still does with the other browsers). There are now several "redirecting to" messages displayed that did not happen prior to this. Also, in FIREFOX I used the username/password reset option, after/during which the login succeeded. NOTE that the problem is a LOGIN problem and not a connection problem. Nothing else in my computer has changed; same security software running as it was before Firefox started this failure. I don't think any updates to any of those happened at the time of failure. There was a major WIN-10 update, and I did experience some problems as a result, and I do not recall if Firefox started to fail at that time. I don't think the update was connected, but not sure. Everything else still works normal (and well) in Firefox.

Hello,

I have used Firefox as my default browser for years and I've been very happy with it. Now it seems as though I'm almost being "pushed" into using Edge with Windows 10. What I need is some encouragement to continue to use Firefox. That means I need some very good reasons to keep using Firefox instead switching to Edge as my default browser.

Having said that I just tried to italicize the word "pushed" in the paragraph above and it did not work. Then I tried to make it bold and that didn't work either. Does anyone know the answer to either of these questions?

Last question. Is it possible to get Google out of my life?? Everywhere I turn it's Google, Google, Google ....

When I mistakenly delete a tab I would like to me able to restore it. If it does not already exist, it could be added to the Firefox menu. When I have many tabs open, sometimes I would like to open yet another tab and I mistakenly delete the last tab rather than clicking on +. This might be because the + is not bright white and seems a bit gray, or because I have so many tabs open the delete sign X does not appear.

I have noticed in Firefox 86.0.1 64 bit that in the past few days the search results screen has been shifting to the right and not centered. I have noticed this as well on my wife's laptop. I have refreshed Firefox on my HP desktop and her HP laptop and it still happens intermittently. When it does this the only way to correct this is to restart Firefox. We both have Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on ‎2/‎24/‎2021 OS build 19042.868. I was wondering if this is a known bug and if anyone else is seeing this.

Thank you

When I try to access http://www.surinenglish.com I get the attached error message.

I have clicked the padlock and set it to off for this site. I have set no proxy for this site and still get the same problem. Running the site in Vivaldi and MS Edge the site loads perfectly fine.

In FF with HTTPS switched off it loads fine. With FF HTTPS switched off but with HTTPS Everywhere running but deactivated for the site it loads OK.

It looks like a FF problem but I can't find a way to fix it. Can someone help, please?
