Several websites (not sure it's website-related) are displaying some (or a lot) of unreadable text. If I copy the text and then paste it into a page in a text program, it all reads fine. What could be causing this, and how do I fix it? (Screen shot is attached.)

I am not ultra-technical so please make response clear.

Until recently my browser accessed all the sites I have used for years and now I cannot access them. As an example the message I receive is "You don't have permission to access "http://booking.jetstar.com/au/en/booking/select-flights" on this server".

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

I had to add Javascript because one of my accounts need Javascript to open. After installing Javascript and allowing for all to be 'true', I still get this message when I try to open a 'show blocked content' in my email.

"The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (javascript) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address."

I never had any problem before installing Javascript. Thanks for any solutions.

I updated Firefox, and now I have tiny tabs at the very top of the screen, a URL bar permanently set with either their homepage or a search bar, and basically nothing else.

There are no settings or themes to change these things.

I can't read the tiny tabs, and I really would prefer a blank page and the small search bar off to the side if I want to search. I am often on cellular data and want to avoid opening anything until I choose it to save on data charges--and why can't I choose what I want to display?

Look, I am not a programmer. I am not risking messing up code in the guts of the browser to change these things because the person who wrote out these instructions is not going to be available to help me if I make a mistake.

Could I have settings to make the browser useful to me? I really don't want to go back to Safari, but I'm an old fart who can't see the new "improved" menu bar.

I customised my Search so that the default is DuckDuckGo and I've removed all the other search engines in Search Shortcuts. Yet, every time I type into the Firefox address bar, both Amazon and Wikipedia still show up, despite the fact that neither should be an option.

I used to have Firefox update itself using automatic updates, and occasionally I would manually trigger an update by checking the HELP>ABOUT menu. For some time now, I am getting an error message inside the ABOUT pop-up window. The current message is "Unable to check for updates due to internal error".

I've un-installed and re-installed several times. It doesn't happen on other computers I own where updates work just fine.

I tried searching, but couldn't find anything relevant

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks !

Ok, so I installed Firefox today, and tried to watch Discovery+, it kept saying it was installing components to play the audio and video and never seemed to actually install them. I finally figured out it's the widevine plugin sitting there with a yellow bar saying it's going to install soon but never does.

I went through nearly an hour of troubleshooting, and nothing has worked. I tried toggling the DRM option on and off, restarting the browser and PC, reinstalling Firefox, restarting my modem, disabling and enabling the plugin itself, going to all the streaming sites I use, attempting to manually install the plugin, etc.

As far as I know, I'm not using an antivirus, I don't have my VPN on, any other extensions or plugins, pihole, or anything else I saw in other support queries. I'm just going crazy trying to fix this since it seems nothing works.
