A bunch of links that were displayed normally before in firefox are not displayed anymore but still in other browsers.Which settings affect displaying of links?

The website https://www.finanznachrichten.de collects financial news from publishers all over the world. Some news are just a link to the publisher's website - this works still fine. Some news can be read directly on the webpage fully. But some articles are NOT displayed fully - only the beginning of the text is displayed followed by a link "Den vollständigenArtikel lesen...." (in english: "Read the full article..." ) This link leads to the full article on the publisher's website. My problem is: This link is NOT DISPLAYED anymore in firefox in all news of this kind on this website. But is was normally displayed in older versions of firefox. By the way: the webmaster of finanznachrichten.de wrote that THEY didn't apply any changes!!!

I just update firefox each time a new release comes up and I always keep all settings as they were before. In other browsers (IE for example) it is ALSO still displayed!!! So my idea is that a setting in firefox prevents those links from being displayed(?) Is that possible and if yes: Which settings do affect the displaying of web-links? (ad block is not the reason by the way - I verfified that) Here an example news: https://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2020-04/49525168-nestle-aktie-ein-klarer-gewinner-503.htm Below the text other browsers display the mentioned full-article-link but firefox doesn't anymore. Any idea in the community?

When I reopen a closed tab, sometimes it would just load the previous page rather than the last opened page. For example, if I was on the Guardian homepage and I clicked on an article, closed the tab, then reopened with Cmd+Shift+T, occasionally it would load the Guardian homepage instead. I can get back to the article by going back a page (Cmd + left arrow), which is kinda weird.

If I update Firefox(67.0), will I be blocked on my second computer that is too old to be updated?

I have a new macPro - no problem. I have an older macpro that I my grandkids use for games, and I use occasionally to check email, weather, etc. The new update says Firefox will "protect" me from using the outdated browser... Since I don't really see any advantage to me and this last bit is a serious disadvantage to me, I am leaning towards skipping the update. Problem?

Since updating to version 66.0.1, I keep getting signed out of accounts. I have been signed out from bank accounts websites, email accounts and various periodicals I subscribe to. It's happened on numerous occasions. I am able to sign back into them without any issues but it's a nuisance especially when I go to check email.

Firefox Sync password discrepancy between macOS and Windows?

Hi,

I'm using Firefox on a couple of Macs and Windows 10 machines for quite some time now. And I keep tabs and bookmarks in sync with Firefox Sync. Has been working great for quite some time.

Since somewhere last week, it started giving me headaches. It started with requiring me to log into sync again on one of the machines (can't quite remember wether it was Win10 or Mac). My password (complex 35 characters, managed by LastPass password manager) did not work. Que? OK, so I reset the password with a recovery key (2FA enabled) and was able to log in again.

Then another machine gave me exactly the same: log in again, password wrong, only way in was to reset password, etc.

It seems I can get either all macOS Firefoxes to sync -or- the Win10 Firefoxes to sync, but not both. I tried completely starting over with sync (deleting my account, setting it up from scratch). But still the same problem...

I'm at my wits end with this... Anyone else having this problem? Was not able to find a reference on google or the support forums ;-(.

I guess it started with Firefox 67.0 (which has an update as I check just now).

Any hints or help most welcome :-D

Best regards, Donald

Whenever I receive a link to webpage in a chat from these two applications, Firefox is unable to open them when set as a default browser.

The links are valid and tested, since they open when the URL is manually copied and pasted in the address bar of Firefox.

This is a specific Firefox problem as I have successfully opened links by clicking on them from these apps using Brave/Chrome as default browsers for a comparison.
