Running Firefox 98.0.2 (64-bit) Mac OS Monterey 12.2.1 (21D62)

Many websites are not loading at all or taking many minutes to load (bankofamerica.com, maps.google.com, etc.) Maps.google.com does not even load on Firefox.

Usually indicates 'waiting for fonts.google.' in the lower left hand corner, but site never loads. This is happening more frequently, on more and more websites.

Google Chrome has 0 issues loading the same websites. Firefox specific issue independent of ISP. Tried restarting, updating, etc. No luck.

Hello, I am trying to print an email in gmail and this message popped up. " Grrr a pop-up blocker may be preventing the application from opening the page." Is this a gmail or Firefox problem? Probably a dumb question from a not-so-tech-savy user. Thanks for any help. LF

I'm having the exact same problem that

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490

firefox itself opens and loads within seconds perfectly fine,[...] But when I try to go to any website, it takes ages to load and function normally. [...]

Once it has loaded the website(s) it functions completely normally

As the solution in that thread was a full format I'm reopening this to find a more precise solution.

I tried everything on that thread without success. Deactivated every plug-in and the problem persist. Running in safe-mode corrects the problem.

I attach an image of the profiler (I can send the full profile if needed)

I don't know why, it is NOT Ancestry, as I can sign in to it on other browsers. I get this error message below.

Access Denied Error 21 What happened? This request was blocked by security rules. Your IP: 73.94.12.65 Incident ID: 6eae587fcef92d46

I have no idea what security rules, but I am working on a genealogy project and have never had a problem signing into Ancestry in multiple tabs before today. How do I fix this? Besides getting rid of Firefox, I mean. I have the same security extensions on this browser as I use on Vivaldi, Brave and Chrome - I avoid Chrome, but use Vivaldi and Brave regularly, along with Firefox.

Hi everyone,

Up until the latest FF release, opening an .ics (calendar file) link defaulted to the OS's preferred application; in my case Outlook. Now, every time I click on an .ics link FF asks where I want to save the file. I schedule ZOOM meetings all day and heavily rely on this feature.

I tried looking in FF's Files and Applications section in settings and .ics is not even listed as a file extension. I don't know how to add it.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I've used gmail (with multiple email accounts) on Firefox for many, many years. I switch back and forth between my email accounts daily.

In the past few weeks, though, when I try to switch from my primary account to the others, it just defaults back to the primary. I've purged the cache, I've signed out and signed in. This does not happen on Chrome, just Firefox, which is why I've brought it here.

If I change the URL of the mailbox

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox

to

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox

It will take me to another mailbox. I can then change that number to get to the others. But it shouldn't be that way. So ... what is going on? How do I fix it?

I have three Firefox profiles: A, B, and C. I tried to give them all different themes. A has a red theme and keeps it consistently. B, my default profile, should have a green theme, and C should have a black theme. However, when I change B's theme to green, the theme on C also changes to green, and when I change the theme on C to black, the theme for B also changes to black. I don't know what I did differently for A! How can I make my profile themes stick for B and C?

This is more of a convenience issue but the new download panel pop-up from the download arrow is very distracting. I couldn't find an option to turn it off so I had to go into the config and turn the true flag false for this "improvement". Is there a better way of disabling this pop-up and if not will there be in future versions of firefox?

Hello,

Since last Firefox update, the download window popup is displayed everytime I download something (red box in the screenshot).

I tried looking in the settings but there is only two lines for where to download or to ask me at each download.

In the personnalization menu there is only the option to display or not the download icon (blue box in the screenshot), and I want the icon to always be seen like I used to.

Tried to look into about:config but I don't know which setting to set on true/false.

I would appreciate some help to not have the red box popup appear when I download. Thank you.

Thank you for your help.

Lately, within the last 60 days, when ever I download something a notification banner listing my downloads appears at the top of the screen. The banner DOES NOT go away on it's own. I have to click on the page somewhere to get rid of it.

My question is: how do I turn this off?

I did not turn it on or even want such a banner. I used to only see this banner when I right clicked on the download icon, what changed?

Thank you for your help.

I've posted this problem before and did receive replies attempting to help. Unfortunately, the problem has continued for a long time (I think at least a year). I frequently can't access websites (e.g. Yahoo Mail) using Firefox but can using Edge or Brave. With Firefox, I get the following error message:

"Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to login.yahoo.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I had hoped that the problem would be solved by a Firefox update but that has not happened.

I also regularly get the message "No Internet Connection" while using Firefox but, when I use Edge or Brave while the error message is displayed, there is Internet connection.

I'm using the latest versions of Firefox and Windows 10 Pro.

I've used Firefox for many years and really don't want to have to switch to, say, Brave.
