Title. I've followed every guide I've found but the issue still persists. I've created a new profile, reinstalled ff after deleting the whole file from my pc, deleted all cookies for a dozen times, disabled all extensions, started ff in that problem mode or whatever it's called and I still can't login to certain websites.

I type my login credentials, press "continue" and nothing happens.

I hate how much information Google gathers from their users but I used Chrome for five or more years and I never had this issue with their browser. Not once. Even now I constantly have to go back using Chrome because with it I have no issues logging in to the sites while on FF I just can't.

What is going on?

I have a work and personal profile. On my work profile, when I go to amazon, I see the pricetag icon in the URL bar and it works as expected. However, on my personal profile, it's not showing up at all; no icon, no prompt, it's like it doesn't exist for that profile. I've restarted both profiles, and it still isn't showing up.

I'd prefer to do my shopping on my personal profile, and not my work profile. Any ideas why it's not working on one?

Every time I try to login to my bank using Firefox New Private Window I get a message "Unable to login. Try again later." But if I then switch to Microsoft Edge browser using its private window I have no problem, no delay, in logging in. It has occurred to me that Edge is deliberately blocking or somehow delaying my login attempt with Firefox. Could this be?

Hi there, I have configured Firefox to remove cookies after closing it. At the same time, I have added some webs that I usually use as exceptions, allowing to remember cookies in those. However, I have the following question: if I reject all cookies except for the mandatories ones in a website that I added to my "remember list", does that mean that future entrances in that web will be with only essential cookies?

As an example, if I mark https://www.bbc.com/ as cookies, and the first time I enter I reject all non-essential cookies, next times I enter in the bbc will I be navigating with only the cookies I accepted on this first entrance? Or allowing a site automatically accepts all cookies?

Thank you very much on advanced.

With increasing frequency, when I open Yahoo in Firefox, there are no photos on the site and I can't access my email. In order to fix this, I have to shut off my computer and do a clean reboot. Then it works for a while, but then, all of a sudden I have the problem again. When I use a different browser (Chrome, Edge), I never have this problem. I thought it was Ghostery that was interfering, because Ghostery does screen out a lot of stuff, so I turned Ghostery off. It made no difference. What solution do you have to offer for this problem? I really don't want to switch to Chrome or Edge, because Firefox's general user interface is so far superior, but the issue I have described is a serious one. (There are two or three other websites that also don't work with Firefox when it comes to user doing data input on the site, but I'll be sending a separate inquiry on that).

Thank you, Alan Rosenbaum

I decided to migrate from chrome to firefox, sadly, my experience has been faced with random slow downs or partial loads even on a fresh install. It's weird but it seems that at random times some websites will refuse to fully load or even start loading, it appears that the app is just hanging. This is usually fixed after several refreshes. Oddly enough, even on a fresh install, if I attempt to load up the same website while in private browsing, it loads right away, again this is consistent even on a fresh install, the attached image was an attempt to load youtube after signing in on a fresh install without add-ons, I tried loading up youtube in private and it worked right away. Chrome wasn't presenting this problem on my computer for years. Any ideas? My computer specs are high enough where they shouldn't matter. I'm running an AMD GPU (7900 XTX) but I haven't found any know issues regarding these, to even discard that, I disabled hardware acceleration, but the issue persisted. Running up to date windows 10, installing latest version of firefox.

I've created 22 themes and in all of them the drop down menus such as "downloads", "history", "extensions", and "application menu", all became white instead of dark like they used to be. I really don't want to go through the process of fixing and reuploading them, I'd apprecate you looking into this and hopefully fixing it with a simple update. Please fix this problem, thank you!

A tab for the Etsy website automatically appears every time FF starts up. How to stop this?

Just began after using the site a couple of times, but I did not indicate or click a setting on the Etsy site to ask for this.

All solution suggestions seem to be for pop-up ads, and don't work to block a website. Is there a way to block this?

There is one domain that I get a "server not found" error for even after doing many things to fix it including everything here, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can#firefox:win10:fx119, checking blocked URLs in the registry, running malware checks, safe mode, reinstalling FF after removing all FF folders from my system.

Before I did a completely clean reinstall, disabling the Open H264 codec (see attached screenshot) would allow me to access the site. But thinking it was needed, I did the clean reinstall. Now disabling it does not allow access to the site.

So far, I have not found any other websites with this problem. It's a .edu domain which happens to be the one I work for! What else can I do?

New computer (Windows 11) shows 'Old Firefox Data'. Opened hidden files. Using File Explorer found Profile Folder & renamed it 'old'. Copied and pasted 'Old Firefox Data' as new profile. Firefox would not open. Had to remove etc and Firefox worked again. Thought this maybe the easiest way to get my Bookmarks back.

PS Presume Profile Folder does not contain Thunderbird Addresses?

I have been a FF fan for almost 20 years and this is the first time sucn a phenomenon has happened. Inside Manage Cookies and Data my Storage is blank nothing is showing and yet the sites I visited are listed as well as the cookies. I have cleared everything hoping to start over would resolve this. My husband has a separate profile on our desktop computer with Windows 10 We have the same setting and yet he is not experiencing this at all. At the end of a session which is usually 1.5 hours I delete the sites that are taking up storage in the MB numbers but for the last 3 days the sites are listed again as are the cookies but under storage nothing? I have attached a screenshot there is not much there because my husband deleted all data but imagine my surprise after 1.5 hours to see all the web sites i visited listed the cookies too an zero storage? I tried to troubleshoot this but could not find anything about it on the Internet. I sincerely hope you can resolve the issue. And yes I have most recent version of FF Thank you in advance. Sincerely, Jamie Dorfman

All of a sudden the Firefox password I've been using for a long time stopped working. I went through the reset process, set a new password, and it still doesn't work! What I am doing wrong? Keeps asking me to re-enter the password, and when I do, it says it's not correct. Is this a widespread known issue?

Ever since about a week ago, my Firefox just started... bugging. Twitch doesn't work, now Netflix doesn't work, basically anything that plays videos (except for YouTube) doesn't seem to be working.

On Twitch, if a person is live and streaming, upon clicking their stream to view it, it's suddenly offline, even if the chat is going and the "this person is live" notification is there. Netflix gives me a f7351 error. Websites with online media (like free movies on putlocker) have multiple streaming services attached and neither of them works.

I've cleared all cookies, cache, data and history.

This is only concerning Firefox, other web browsers work perfectly.

Extensions on my Firefox are as follows: BetterTTV, Dark Mode, DocsAfterDark, Facebook Container, FrankerFaceZ, I don't care about cookies, Instagram Dark Theme, New XKit, TinEye, Tumblr Saviour. No adblocks, no nothing.

My operating system is Windows 10, 64bit, Firefox is updated to 119.0.1.

Any help would be appreciated as this has been the bane of my existence for a while.

I am using Firefox version 119.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 22.04. Using this version of Firefox, as well as previous versions for the last few months, I am having a persistent error when using Google Advanced Search. I enter search criteria into the field “Find pages with … all these words” and successfully progress through a chain of web pages. Previously I was able to backtrack to the previously mentioned field and find my search criteria, then edit the text, and carry out a modified search. For many months this field has been blank when returning to it. So it is now necessary to re-enter all text for a new search. This is very frustrating. I have experienced this problem on the three computers that I regularly use.

I have found that when I use the Google Chrome browser the problem goes away and searches progress normally. I would much prefer to use Firefox as my browser as I find its bookmark system superior. The truth is that if this problem with Firefox can’t be fixed soon I will be forced to migrate to Chrome. Can you please help me resolve this Firefox problem?

Hello,

I have reinstalled fresh firefox for like the 5th time now. It continues to not load web site pages completely. One other example, I log in to yahoo mail the page loads. I then click on the mail icon to go to the mail and NOTHING happens.

This is getting old. It only happens with firefox and not MS Edge.
