I need to access an essential security device that has an address similar to my modem, with numbers and periods only. But Firefox consistently adds either "HTTP" or "HTTPS" to the address, so Firefox says, “Unable to connect.” I am able to access my modem page without Firefox adding anything to the address. The instructions I found (at Support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/https-only-prefs) say to disable or insert exceptions in the “HTTPS only" option on the “Privacy and Security” section of Firefox Preferences. However, there is NO "HTTPS only" selection in my Preferences (Version 78.150esr). The other suggestion, to “Click the Lock icon in the address bar,” will not work because there is no Lock icon in the address bar with this address. I have "Use the address bar for search. . ." unchecked in the "Search" section of Firefox Preferences. I also tried unchecking “Provide search suggestions,” disabling all of my Firefox extensions, and using “non-private browsing” mode. Safari browser will not connect to this URL either. Help!

This is becoming a real problem. I still use a very powerful iMac.

I actually have 5 Mac's, and a couple of Window's PC's that I use for consulting work.

Apple has really hurt their iMac older customer market with their new file system, APFS.

They have impacted negatively a lot of their customers because more customers are using older machines to do work.


I still use Mac OS 10.11.6. It is older OS, but not that old.

You have millions of customers using back leveled machines both Mac, and OS.

I find it disturbing when I get the message browser no longer supported and the web site does not launch, and Mozilla does not have upgrades to make their browser work on mostly all machines.

You folks need to have a more universal approach to browser compatibility.

This is not working for me. What are my options????

Please advise,

On start-up the Firefox browser shows a list of articles/topics that is referred to as Pockets. I clicked on one from Orion Magazine this morning and after the article was up for about 30 seconds a graphic appeared that showed a large metal looking sphere and was suppose to augment the article. This graphic completely locked up my computer. I am running an ancient iMac, mid-2007, and it took bringing down my wi-fi network and a little frustration to get my computer unfrozen. Please take down this article.

On many, many, websites when logging in I am getting the above message.

These sites work no issues but why is Firefox not recognized as a accepted browser.

Firefox says I am using the current release, and is up to date?

All this sites are important log on, like BofA, OptumRx, etc.

I am using an iMac, Mac OS 10.11.6.

It is still a really good machine.

Hi All,

I'm using an iMac with OS X El Capitan 10.11.6. I am using Firefox 78.15. When I click on links, nothing happens. I have to right click and select "open link in new tab." I suspected it might be an out-of-date Add-On. So, I disabled all add-ons and restarted Firefox. It had no effect.

This problem is getting annoying Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

hello there!

i have had this persistent issue: when a site seems broken, i used to be able to try turning off Enhanced Tracking Protection, by

   Clicking on the shield Icon to the left of the address bar, then
   Toggling the switch at the top of the panel.

But for the past week or two, the toggle button stays on and i canno toggle it off.

Also, a related issue, ie.the reason ive mos recently tried to do this, is so i can view the whole yelp review web pages. I used to be able to, but fo the pas few weeks a large portion of these pages hav blanks instead of reviews. I cannot even view the review i myself posted a week ago!

For example, this yelp business page link text

if you scroll down to beneath of where it says:

'''Ask the Community Ask a question Yelp users haven’t asked any questions yet about Precision Dentistry.'''

there should be text and photos of companies' reviews and info. But instead, all i ever see are grayed out empty boxes.

I have tried:

disabling all my add-ons, 

private browing mode,

restarting firefox, 

turning of all tracking protection from the main firefox preferences pane, rebooting my computer, and clearing all history for everything. I have also googled this up the yinyang but no one else seems to be having similar issues.

Any ideas? if you could please help with this issue i'd be very grateful!

I'm not sure that I picked the best topic, but here goes . . .

Sadly, I used an app called CleanMyMac X and now all of my passwords, etc, that were saved in "Blur" are gone. It seems that Blur might be in a folder called "Old Firefox Data" that is now on my computer's desktop, but all of what might be Blur's data is encrypted and I don't know how to access it.

I have written to Blur, and CleanMyMac, Mail.com, Google, and others, but I only get automated answers that won't work because I can't login to anything because my passwords are not available to me.

What to do? I can't even login to FF, nor can I get the email that FF has for me.

Can I ask for answers at [removed email from public] ?
