Hopefully, you kind folks can help with a battle I've had every day or the last 2 months, and appreciate your diligence in resolving it.

If you look at my last question of June 7th, there's no change in what happens in my effort to remain signed in with any Gmail account (one at a time or multiples at a time. And this still remains the only site I have access problems with. Google Chrome, is what I am forced to use and hate to use, but is my only refuge for Gmail, and it keeps me signed in indefinitely.

Attached, please find the error message I get just before it kicks me out 100% of the time, which can be in 10 seconds or a few minutes.

I'm even thinking, there may be a problem with how my computer is synced to my phone that has gmail access, but that only affects Firefox and not Chrome. But I never tried syncing Firefox with anything, but let's test my far out theory anyways, and I'll try it last.

Hoping we can put this one to bed finally.

Thank you!

I'm sure this has been solved elsewhere, but the search function on this site is miserable, and Google has been no help.

I am able to pull up the Ctrl+F searchbar, I am able to type no problem, etc. It gives the appearance of working properly. When I type a word into the searchbar, it does indicate the number of matches it has found within the little search pane, but it does not actually highlight or show any of the matches. Clicking "highlight all" does nothing, and trying to scroll down/up matches doesn't move the screen at all or show any of the page text changing. In essence, it's telling me that it found matches, but it won't tell me where.

Does anyone know how to fix this? TIA

I've used Firefox forever, however in the last couple weeks, I can no longer use eBay as the webiste looks weird and my account is inaccessible. (See attachment.)

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

After a recent FireFox update, I am now having a problem downloading Outlook.com webmail attachments. The download process appears to initiate, but when asked via popup "What should FireFox do with this file", the "OK" button remains 'grayed out' regardless as to whether the "Open . . " or "Save . . " option is selected. BTW: Using FF v79.0 w/ Win 8.1 and not having same issue using either Chrome or IE and issue does not appear to be file-type specific. Assistance would be MUCH appreciated as FF is my preferred browser.

After Firefox 79, eBay image thumbnails are blocked in Outlook when Firefox Enhanced Protection is set to Strict

Every PC I have has Firefox, but only ones updated to 79 or later list i.ebayimg.com as blocked content, and won't display the eBay thumbnails in my email.

Switching to Standard Protection or turning of Protection OFF for Outlook.com fixes this, but it shouldn't be happening at all.

I use a Firefox account and all of my browsers all have the same basic setup - no exceptions set on any of them, for any site.

Hi, I'm saving login information through Firefox / Firefox Monitor however I'd like to know why, whether I'm signed in, or especially after I've signed out of Firefox, all my login information is fully accessible with two simple clicks.

Should this not be protected when you're NOT signed in? ...or at least require a password should something need to be updated?

I understand there's the master password however, after reading various posts, I don't think it'll solve the issue.

Thanks!

I have Firefox version 79.0. The power went out a few days ago and upon restarting Firefox the restore button was gray, and similarly the tabs and windows button under history were gray. Today because of a problem with a website I turned off the computer. Firefox said it had a problem restoring, a restore button popped up and when I pushed the restore button it coughed up ONE tab, which I believe I had already closed, but none of the others.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Previous install of Firefox problematic - profile manager wouldn't show. Removed installation.

Downloaded / installed 80.0.1 (64bit). Same problem. Can start Firefox normally but cannot start/interact with profile manager (firefox.exe -p)

Try to open profile manager. Window doesn't appear. Firefox is running in task manager. No option to show window. Kill process. Try to start profile manager again. Same thing. Window doesn't appear but Firefox process in task manager. Restart machine several times. Still doesn't work.

Enter 'about:profiles' in firefox address bar. Create new profile. "Launch profile in new browser". New browser does not appear but exists as process in task manager. Shut down first firefox window (the one used to create new profile). Kill windowless process in task manager.

Run 'firefox.exe -p' in Run. Window doesn't appear (as before). Kill process in task manager.

Run firefox from shortcut. Opens in new profile.

Problem: want and need to run Profile Manager.

I read about a different Firefox issue and I am able to visit this page FYSA: https://ir.ebaystatic.com/rs/v/4ups3vxocu2mherdhxh5b2kdxml.css

Is this something that Mozilla would be able to fix in the next update?

Hello,

For the past several weeks, Firefox keeps crashing randomly when loading new web pages. It shuts down the whole browser window, not just a particular tab at a time. In the past few days, it has also started to crash when a web site has already been loaded.

I have deleted all history and have only kept my bookmarks and the following extensions but it still keeps crashing: - Facebook Container - Ghostery - Privacy Ad Blocker - LastPass: Free Password Manager - uBlock Origin

I also have two disabled extensions. Not sure if they would affect anything?

Is my next step just uninstalling and reinstalling all extensions? Please let me know what else I could try!

Thank you in advance!

Hello!

I've got a problem with FF 79.0.

When going to my eBay acc after typing the password I'm getting only the page with 'Access to website blocked'. This doesn't happen in IE or Chrome.

I tried all known to me solutions: first I disabled Addblock Plus for eBay website. Then completely cleaned the FF cache. Then cleaned the FF installation. Then uninstall FF completely and reinstall. Nothing helps.

If this is a known issue and already is solved, I'd be grateful for usable tips. Tried to search this Forum with the keywords 'Access to website blocked' but got ca. 500 examples (mainly for a 'Website' word :) This is unreal to check everything.

I have a Firefox account, so my settings are shred across devices. But there is one thing that is a pain in the neck. I use a local start page, i.e. one stored on the local disk of each device I use. But this page is stored in a different location on each device. When I set the start page on one device, the setting doesn't work on my other devices. Suggestion: Don't sync the start page if it is a local html file. Or offer a setting to disable syncing of just this one setting.

Hi, I frequent a telehealth site which has a video element on it that displays the other users outgoing webcam video stream, you know, like a zoom chat but built into an angular application I am accessing using Firefox. I am wondering why I do not get the option to send the video to PIP in Firefox? ... I do get the option in Chrome.

Is there some criteria that the video must meet in order to allow PIP? For instance, is PIP not allowed on a video stream that has no defined "end"?

Thanks for the help!

p.s. I do have the PIP parameter toggled on in Settings.
