I, today, found that Firefox 88.0.1(64bit) sends "/nice%20ports%2C/Tri%6Eity.txt%2ebak" to an website. What is this? Am I infected? The Apache log at the HTTP server is as follows:

The server is located within my home LAN. 192.168.1.188 and xps8940 is the captioned machine that sends this unknown protocol. Tested by Chrome and found no such protocol sent. Could any guru enlighten me? Tak

I use iCloud.com for my email. A couple days ago my launched message windows (such as opening or replying to a message) will not come forward of the main screen. The tabs appear as thumbnail previews (see attached), but will not display on top. They stay behind the main window screen and cannot be used.

I am on current Firefox version (88.0.1), and did several refreshes which would fix it temporarily, but then it reverts back. I did a complete uninstall and re-installed, but this still has not fixed the problem.

This appears to be only on this PC: I have another almost identical box where Firefox displays the iCloud tabs correctly.

I'm now having to use MS Edge to send or reply to messages from iCloud.

Something strange happening with my Firefox for a few months, you can see the screens below. Letters disappear (but visible under selection or Ctrl+A), images are broken (but totally fine after being saved on PC), and all these acid green and pink parts make internet surfing a challenge. Refreshing pages doesn't help.

I tried deleting and reinstalling Firefox anew, without all plugins and stuff but the problem still was there. Cleaned the system with CCleaner, checked with ESET Internet Security. Google Chrome, Windows file explorer and all other programs are totally fine.

Please help!

Good Evening,

I just downloaded Firefox onto my new computer. I went to sign-in and it keeps telling me that I have an incorrect password. It is the correct password because I used it to login here. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it on the new computer with no joy. What should I do? Also, I can login and out just fine with my old computer.

Thanks,

Leish

Accessing :Politico.com there is a Politico Wuerker cartoon 'list'. The first item is always available. To migrate to any following item on the list I get a "you may skip ad in" with no further text. In the past, refresh would allow the next cartoon to be shown. Now, refresh returns to the first cartoon.

Current operation:

  1. Select the URL above
  2. Select any of the numbered bubbles on the bottom or the right 'arrow'
  3. "you may skip ad in" is displayed.
  4. Select refresh, and we start over.

In the past, refresh would migrate to the next jpg image.

On microsoft edge, in the past, (1) there was a right block arrow, (2) clicking on the arrow gets you to the "you may skip ad in" message, and displayed with this is a check box to allow skipping the ad.

As just a curiosity, why did Firefox elect to change the right block arrow to a rectangular black image?

thanks

The subject line says it, really: though "Restore previous session" is still ticked in Options, a reboot presented me with just my homepage tabs. Is this, as I hope, an inadvertent bug or a design decision?

I wanted to change the password of my Firefox account and also generate a recovery key, but whenever I try it says "invalid password". The old password is correct, though, as I can use it to log into my account. I've tried multiple times on two computers and checked and re-checked the password, but the error message keeps appearing.

Every time I start Firefox, it tells me it is installing updates and will restart shortly. Why is this happening to version 88.0, which is supposed to be the latest version. It is an endless cycle.

I also use Ninite to maintain application updates. It tells me Firefox is running (although is definitely NOT) and refuses to update it.
