Hello everybody,

There are more and more websites that have functions that no longer work with Firefox and force me to use Chromium instead. Do you if there is any chance that an upcoming release will put everything right?

Thank you in advance Virginie

I have reported the problem to Plusnet but they say 'not our problem'. Their reason being that the problem does not occur using Google Chrome.

Can you help please?

I try to access my bank website and when I log in the tab says "Something went wrong" and the page tells me Sorry, we couldn't complete your request Sign in to online banking or our mobile banking app to continue. This started on April 1, 2021 Running Firefox v87.0 (64) on Win 10. All apps are current. Tried resetting Firefox, and clearing cache which didn't work. I can sign-in using Edge. Thanks

FF profile choice problem on Linux Mint with Claws email

I have three FF profiles on my Linux Mint 19.3 system (work, not-work and one for e-tail). Somehow the problem only appeared after I added that last one. All profiles have the same syntax; I checked the files. Neither one is set to be the dominant one. Typically, I don't use more than one at a time.

I also use Claws mail. Whenever I get any mail with a link I want to check out, I just used to click on that link and it opened in a new tab in the FF browser profile that was currently open. Similarly, whenever I wanted to see the HTML version of a mail, I right-clicked on the html-icon and chose open. Again, it picked the open browser.

Now, though, whenever I pick either one of those options above, I get the "Choose User Profile" box. If I pick the profile that is currently open, I get an error telling me that it's already running.

Since I mostly read email when I use the no-work FF profile, I tried to add "firefox -P NotWork -no-remote --class NotWorkProfile" but that also resulted in the choose user profile box to open.

My current work-around is to copy the link and open it in a new tab, or pull the whole mail into the tab to see the HTML version. Quite annoying.

Is there any way to get it to ignore all other profiles but the currently open one? Thank you for anyone who has an idea. Let me know if there's anything else I may add to explain the situation.

[My apologies if this isn't the right forum; I'm also attempting to ask this question in the Linux Mint and Claws forums, if those exist.]

Used to be able to download files from anywhere I chose. Now, cannot download from www.bluesound.com. ISP and I ran test that shows download and upload work, and AT&T e-mails are arriving into MS Outlook (although very much slower than in the past).

When download request sent to Bluesound, the wait cursor spins indefinitely. Once left it running overnight, still spinning the next morning.

Perhaps this has to do with security settings. Advice, anyone?

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to suggest you to make built in adblocker in Firefox. For example Opera have this feature so we don't need install any extension. People from Mozilla read subjects in support.mozilla.org? If not where I can send my suggestion?

P.S. I wanted to install Adblock Plus extension but I am afraid about safety so better option is to make built in adblocker to protect from malware. I think that this can be direction in good way.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

I am Getting both "incorrect password" and "your email was returned" errors

I know the password is correct as I can still use it to log in (including logging into these forums) though I am getting this error when trying to create a recovery key or reset my password

For the "your email was returned" error, the email address is typed correctly in my account and I have gotten confirmation emails from FireFox as recently as 2 days ago. I get this error when trying to sign in to sync the Multi-Account Containers addon, as well as when trying to use "forgot password" to get a reset link.

I'm not sure how to proceed with these errors as each issue is preventing me from resolving them on my own.

At one point while I was getting the incorrect password error I got a message that my account is locked and an email would be sent to me for confirmation...though of course that also got "your email was returned"

I just got my upgrade from Firefox86 to Firefox90 working, but the tab bar is completely missing.

I still use "old-style" FIrefox. From top to bottom: File/Edit/View menu Search bar Bookmarks Toolbar Tab bar

(yes, I AM old. I've been using Firefox since Version 1 and this particular style works for me, developers be damned.)

The tab bar is completely missing. Firefox knows how many tabs I have open (it warns me when I try to exit) but doesn't show any. The area that the Tab Bar used to occupy is simply empty.

Any ideas on how to fix? (Yes, I have done the Google.)

I frequently use Amazon, but it shows up on my New Tab page as @amazon with a search icon, and when I click the tile it opens my search/address bar. How do I get the tile to open Amazon's website like all the other tiles I have on my New Tab page?

Alternatively, the way I've previously handled this "behavior" is dismissing the tile so I don't have to deal with its uselessness. My browser just updated, but why do I have to dismiss the tile a second time?

The absolute weirdest problem. If I'm on the Brita website (brita.com) and type in another url to navigate away, I press enter, and it just refreshes the same page I was on. This happens across the brita.com domain, regardless of what url I type in, even if I type the full url (including https://www.), and if I click a search or url suggestion in the dropdown, even in a private window, anything. This has never happened to me with any other website.

Obviously I can just close the tab and open another, but this is strange enough I figured I'd see if anyone could figure it out (or at least replicate my experience). I would appreciate any insights!
