I'm running the latest version of Firefox (85.0 64bit) on Windows 10.

Perhaps I could get help here.

I can't login in either https://www.icloud.com/ or https://tv.apple.com/

Screenshots of the problem are attached here. In both websites I see the circle as it is trying to load (on icloud, eventually, get an error "iCloud encountered an error while trying to connect to the server"). I've tried to use these websites with Chrome and Edge and it works normally.

Solutions I've tried but did not work: - cleaned cache and history; - turned off firefox protections against monitoring; - turned off uBlock Origin (it's the only plugin installed besides DuckDuckGo) - tried in private window, does not work as well

Is this a known bug or/and is there any solution? I can try anything you will suggest to me, I really need to open these websites and I do not want to use any other browser besides Firefox.

Recently I logged out from Firefox my account, and when I tried to login it asked me to enter the 6 digit verification code from my authentication application. It looks like this comes from the 2-steps authentication method. I don't remember I used this procedure before, and I don't know what is the authentication app. I have this account since 2014 and now I am not able to login to it. Is there is any way to reset the sitting through email? Please help. Note: I created another account in order to be able to ask this question.

Hi,

I have a big issue with Firefox crashing my computer, every day. I have many tabs open but this problem started occuring just a few days ago. Would really appreciate any clues on what could be causing this.

Here are my crash reports:

bp-39de7cd9-4a79-44cb-a5d0-1abe30210127 bp-27b0e547-3bea-496b-9288-885700210127 bp-2d9c8aa7-6502-4007-9f35-83b870210127 bp-aa89909a-cd4a-456f-ba3c-c47480210127 bp-3d32d88d-25f3-4b05-afee-ca1820210127 bp-8ea13769-6d05-4762-8848-0cebc0210127

I have tried disabling webGL, as well as disabling hardware acceleration etc. Also, the crashes usually happen after >1h of usage. I have 32gb of RAM and lots of charts open in my tabs, so not sure if its a memory or graphics issue.

Thanks in advance!

After update to firefox 80 sometimes random pages do not load. They open as blank white page with refresh button being inactive. Only way to solve this problem is close page, open new tab and try to load this page again.

This is completely random, happening on all sites, opened from links on other sites, bookmarks or speed dial. No idea what could cause it. Maybe firefox has some problems with creating new process for new tab if my process limit is set to 1?

Hi Folks,

I've recently started working with a Mac (Catalina) and found an oddity that only seems to apply to Firefox. I set up keyboard shortcuts for moving windows between my macbook display and an external monitor using the in-built keyboard options to add shortcuts.

These target the Window>Move to [DISPLAY NAME] menu entries at the top of the screen. For some reason Firefox windows don't have this menu entry and therefore my shortcuts don't move Firefox windows between my screens.

I've included a couple screenshots to demonstrate. It's not a huge deal but I wonder if it's an issue with my machine or just a quirk of Firefox?

Somehow while searching for this solution on the web. I got my answer in a foreign Firefox. The answers posted to this solution are in English but all the other buttons are according to Goggle translate are in Lithuanian. How can I see this whole page in English?

I was able to answer a couple of people but if I search in my USA profile, none my posted questions or answers include the ones from the Lithuanian Firefox.  Just curious if I could see them here somehow.
