Redirects. The net gives instrutions on how to block 'redirects' but they are 'out of date'

When a URL no longer exits, I get a 'redirect' and even it it does, sometimes it "steps on' the correct URL and several attempts are needed to get the correct URL to stick. The "net" gives instructions of: Step 1: Click the "Tools" menu tab in your Firefox browser and select "Options." Step 2: Select "Advanced" from the list of options at the top of the window.

But in Firefox release 83.xxx, "ADVANCED" option does not exist or I can not SEE it. Any idea on how to 'BLOCK REDIRECTS' and just get an error instead?

OR SIMPLE BLOCK URLS one just does not like without using the PARENTAL CONTROLS.

I've been trying to figure out how to fix this and havent found anything in my google seartch settings, or firefox options or my PC's display settings, it might be right in front of me but I just cant figure it out.

On some pages, for example, when I do a google search on firefox, there is a ton of blank white space not used. Like it has a narrow page margin or something? I'm attaching a screenshot of what I mean. You can see half the screen is just white, how can I fix it so the display isnt so narrow? Not all pages have the blank space problem, for example outlook.com has no such issue.

Thank you in advance for helping me

Pocket is a fantastic idea - another essential element to support democracy.

However, some of the news articles are from websites like the NY Times and Washington Post which require accessors to SUBSCRIBE before being allowed to view the reporting content.

Even when you use the 2-second delay to hit ctrl-a and ctrl-c (select-all and copy) shortcuts, it is a nuisance and often requires repeat attempts.

SO, can the "wonderful brainiacs" of Moz/Firefox find alternative sources of the same content to avoid those sites requiring forced subscriptions?

It's pretty much it actually. I use windows 10 pro and mozilla's latest version. Zooming the screen happens randomly like once in 1 minute or 30 sec. Pinning someone else and unpinning solves the problem for a while but it happens randomly and frequently. I tried to close all extensions and it didn't helped. Opera browser is working fine if I compare. Thanks for the help, be safe.

Hello everybody! I have a problem with https://www.krone.at/kreuzwortraetsel! When I want to enter a letter, I click on a field that turns yellow. When I type the letter, the field does not contain the same letter, but a small window opens, where the letter appears and to the right of it there is a comment. If I load the same puzzle with the Google Chrome Browser, this error does not occur. This error did not occur on 11.11.2020. How can you get rid of it? Dieter

Hi! I have a company network with about 30 PCs, no domain, but a working internal DNS. There is a server within the network running a webapplication (ASPX). The firewall regulations are very strict, so there are only two hands full of websites reachable from the network. Until now (version 82.x) it was enough to put the adress http://server in the address line of Firefox to open the application. After updating to version 83.0 the server is not reachable anymore, firefox automatically tries to open http://www.server.com "ping server" works, use of \\server in windows explorer and opening an RDP-Connection to "server" works also!

Why is that so and are there any solutions?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards

Peter

Lately, Firefox is making it difficult to browse websites more and more. Pages don't load properly, or functions on the website don't work. I tried to make a payment online and it absolutely would not work on Firefox. I've tried logging into some sites, but can't. Yesterday, I filled out numerous fields and drop-down menus for a job posting and when I reached the bottom, I couldn't proceed because the captcha didn't work. I had to reload the page, all of my data was lost, and it still didn't work. In every instance, I had to move to another browser. Anybody know what's going on? This wasn't a problem until the last couple months, but if it's going to be an ongoing problem, I'll need to find a new browser.

Hello! I have a small problem with my firefox. I have iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch) with an additional screen (DELL U2412M) and when I have ff on this additional screen, bigger select lists are cutted by half (look at first attached image, second = good view). As you can see, list is bigger than firefox shows. Second image is from main iMac screen. Do you have any idea how to fix this problem? It's site independent so it is not a css problem. I tried to refresh ff and to disable hardware acceleration.

The Firefox Relay website has a link to a survey for users. I was unable to submit the survey in any browser (firefox, chrome, or safari) .

It kept flagging an error that I hadn't filled out the last question (which browsers I use on a regular basis.) even though it was filled out.

Anyway thought you all might want to know in case you haven't been getting survey responses.

The browser simply refuses to save such personal preferences anymore, up until the last update this hasn't been an issue. Before i updated youtube would remember to use dark mode and disable autoplay without fail, now i have to reset these preferences every time i open a new youtube tab. When i open a new tab on youtube the screen starts as if it were in dark mode and then smash-cuts to light mode with autoplay as soon as the video and recommended thumbnails load up. This doesn't happen on Chrome, and when i set my system preferences in the windows options menu it does default to dark mode (but i really hate the systemwide dark mode there).

I could really use some help here if anyone is able to, half of my browsing youtube is in the dead of night and i really don't need the added eye strain every time i want to watch a new video outside of my queue.
