Firefox version 96 - I can no long go to Google Drive and have it zip files for me to download. I am getting an error saying I don't have 3rd parties cookies enabled. I have not changed a thing. The only thing that changed is this Firefox update.

I rolled back to version 95 and it was fine. I told Firefox to let me know when I need to update and I decide and then it proceeds to update itself (again).

Any reason why I am getting the cookie error? I checked all my allowances in Firefox settings and in my antivirus, even though I have not changed anything there. And why would it update again after I told it not to?

When I try to sign in on Morrisons On Line Shopping I am invited to add my user name and password, once done there is a pause then this appears:

This page isn't directing properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. Try again.

No matter how often I try again, the same thing occurs. It also occurs in troubleshooting mode, and also if I remove all of my security add ons.

This has only occurred since Xmas, and does not occur on any other browser.

I would like a fix, please.

Since January 14 2022, my Firefox (and other browsers like Safari & Chrome) can't load certain websites, notably meetup.com and guardian.co.uk.

I've checked with both ISP and Apple support (Macbook Air M1 2020 on Mac OS 12.1). After running tests, both maintain there are no issues with internet connectivity.

I'm aware that Mozilla (as far as Firefox goes) is working on a solution and has offered a workaround. I have tried it and it doesn't work.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Before updating to Firefox 96, I could close tabs no matter how squished they were. Now I cannot. Someone with a similar problem at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194322 was able to find help, but I'm not meeting with any success implementing their chosen fix. Is there a way to keep the close tab button active with this many tabs anymore, or is that out?

Hi,

This is my first post here, hopefully one of the only ones I'll make too. But know that this issue warranted an account creation. So here's the issue/question:

Why did Firefox automatically switch my theme over to a forest green theme with a pop up window that gave my maybe 6-8 other color options or let me stay with my old one? (today on 1/15/2022). Is this native Firefox behavior or do I have to hunt a plugin/extension down? If it's Firefox then how to I turn that shit off FOREVER. No matter what's causing it it's incredibly intrusive and the lack of exit button is a low move from whoever did the ui/ux design. Any info would be appreciated. Win10 pro, Firefox 96.0.1 (64-bit) Darkreader, colorzilla, ublock origin, lastpass, decentraleyes, clearurls, and keepa installed. Can share more if needed

Thanks!

I'm having problems with playing some videos on youtube, facebook etc. For example in youtube the video never stop to load and after some minutes the following message appears :"if playback doesn't begin shortly try restarting your device". In other browser such as edge and Chrome the video works without problem. I have the last version, 96.0.1, 64 bit edition. I'm using a Dell Laptop, with Windows 11 Pro version 21H2 OS Build 22000.434.

I already done the following steps but the problem still exist:

-Update Firefox -Turn Off Hardware Acceleration -Disable Firefox Extensions -Delete Browser Cache and Cookies -Allow Autoplay on Firefox -Allow Cookies, History, and Pop-ups -Refresh Firefox -upgrade graphics driver -unistall and reinstall firefox -create a new firefox profile

How can I solve the problem?

Best Regards

I have Firefox on my laptop (Win10 Pro) and on my Android phone; just bought a new office computer that is running Win11. My laptop has a long list of bookmarks and a dozen or more open tabs. I would like to get this same setup on the new computer. I thought I followed directions but since it does not work I guess I have missed something important.

Go to the menu in upper right, then the > next to my account, which brings up Manage Account, Syncing, several other items, then a list of tabs on my phone, another list of tabs on my laptop, and a third list of tabs on an old computer that no longer exists. It has been syncing for 2-3 hours without evident progress. I would like to delete the dead computer to avoid confusion but see no way to do it. Mainly I want to sync with the laptop or, failing that, import the bookmarks from it.

I also copied the FF profile from the old computer into the new one. The files and directory structures are identical but FF cannot read the profile. I do not know what to do about any of this.

I have Firefox 96.0.1. As of this morning, images will no longer load on any websites. The only thing that has changed since yesterday is that I followed some advice from the Washington Post on how to prevent scam emails. I have spent nearly two hours searching for and following advice to restore images on Firefox, but nothing has worked. I need more direct assistance!

Over the years, I have become dependent on a bookmarks toolbar that shows only icons, but will show the text with a mouse hover, using the following in userchrome:

/* The lines below allow the bookmarks toolbar to show only icons */

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { display:none !important; }
#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
 margin:0px 0px 0px -4px !important;
 padding:0px !important;
}

The upgrade to Firefox 96 broke this. I considered spending an hour or two deleting the text from all of the bookmarks on my bookmarks toolbar, but I depend on the mouse-hover tooltip with the text to remind me of some important but not all-that-frequently-used bookmarks.

Any help appreciated.

So I installed Firefox, and now it has "disappeared" from the my Windows 11 system. It is not in the apps list, and i cannot search for it in the start search bar. Weird part is that the files are still in the Program Files folder, and clicking the application works.

I reinstalled Firefox and everything seems to be ok, but then it happened again.

Anyone has any insights?

How can I eliminate msrigg@pacbell.net? How can I replace it with AlexR@currently.com?
