i don't know if the problem lies within firefox or not. i am able to sign into the site via chrome tho. when i try to sign into spectrum (as i have many times w/o issue) it does some blinking or flashing loading type thing and ends with this message: -- We're sorry, something didn't work quite right. Please try again. IDID-1060 --. this is going on for 3? weeks now. i have called tech support through spectrum with no help. they could get in on their end and we changed pw's but it didn't help me. also--and i have no idea if this matters at all, but it disturbs me... the padlock right beside the address box says -verified by amazon-. why is that? at times when i have hovered that at websites, it says verified by, and the name of my security service. i can't 100% say that i have checked it when signing into spectrum tho, but still i don't understand why it would say amazon! i much prefer using firefox! but i also feel like i shouldn't have to use chrome part time to get to certain sites or do certain things. PLEASE PLEASE help me figure this out.

P.S. i am already forced to use chrome to play games on facebook for years now. except bingo blitz, which is odd to me. i can play that through firefox. sighs.

I have tried everything that I can find to get rid of that damn searchitnow, which replaced my preferred Google Search. I've looked for downloads, extensions, everything. I've checked to make sure Google is my preferred search engine, and on and on. There is nothing. I have run Malwarebytes several times and it comes up clean.

How do I get this off my Mac? I am running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

Hi! Glad someone is here to help!

Last week I was signed out of my Hotmail account. Which is now technically Outlook, but I still have a Hotmail email address. I did not sign out. Just came home to discover that I was signed out. I found the main Outlook sign up page, which also had "sign in" on it, which I clicked.

The next thing that showed up was a mostly blank page with the Microsoft squares, my email address, and password filled in in the upper left corner of the page. Underneath it said "next" which I clicked, and nothing happened. I tried to chat with Microsoft about it, and in the end I downloaded Chrome, which instantly let me into my account. I truly don't want to use Chrome. But so far my ability to access my account via Firefox has not been successful. I would be so happy if anyone could help me understand what is gong on, and how to fix it. Thank for reading this!!!!!! ps I have Linux as my operating system. I had someone who knows Linux well come to help me, but he couldn't figure it out either.

After returning from my wisdom teeth removal, I accidentally told firefox to forget the last 5 minutes of history, and now all of my tabs (including a few very important signup pages) have disappeared. I understand that this option says that the action "cannot be undone," but is there any way for me to reopen or recover those closed windows? I am panicking a bit right now.

Thank you so much.

I can't remember when it started, but one day tabs on my Firefox browser suddenly started having visual issues where textures or pictures would show up as a vibrant green (more recently its begun highlighting some yellow as well). I've had similar problem in the past with videos instead, but I fixed that by updating my graphics card. This problem also affects text as well. Sometimes letters will be invisible, glitched beyond comprehension, or purple. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, resetting Firefox to default, and completely uninstalling and reinstalling, but none of these have fixed it. I'll attach some images below. (this problem is specific to Firefox, Microsoft Edge works fine)

The strict protection mode in Firefox has been really great for me so far. My understanding is that it creates a separate "cookie jar" for each website. Knowing this, I was wondering if Facebook container is still needed to stop Facebook tracking. I never visit the Facebook website and I don't have a Facebook account. I also use Ublock and Privacy badger, if that makes a difference.

Here's how I discovered this issue.

PayPal has a page on which the user selects a method for having money withdrawn from one's PayPal account to one's bank. I've found that this page's "Next" button works correctly (that is, it loads the page on which the user would then indicate the amount to be transferred) on Firefox 40.0.2, but it works incorrectly (that is, it only underlines the word "Next" and does not load a new page) on Firefox 52.9.0 and Firefox 87.0.2. (My internet access in each case is dialup.)

After pursuing various leads on the possible cause, it occurred to me to inspect the page source for the "withdraw" page for each of those versions of Firefox. And I discovered that the page source displayed by Firefox 40.0.2 contained content that was absent from the page source displayed by either of the other two Firefox versions. Some of this content appeared to define a function that returns content to the server when "Next" was clicked. If true, this could certainly account for why clicking the button didn't do what it should.

I noticed that the page source uses as many as 12 nested levels of <div>-</div> elements, which seems counter to the advice I read at an HTML standards page (at whatwg.org). But I don't know whether this could be a factor in the behavior I described.

I've copied the page source for each Firefox version and pasted them into text files, but I wasn't sure it would be appropriate to post them publicly. I would be glad to provide them offline.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Suddenly a week ago or so, Disqus comment boxes no longer appear. I reported it to a website that employs Disqus for commenting. They have been investigating for a couple of weeks with no response.

There was a question asked on this forum in 2013 that describes the Subject, but nothing since. Running on Window 10 Home.

This problem does not occur on my Windows 10 machine with Edge or Chrome browsers.

Nor does it occur on Ipad or Android browsers.

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm using firefox sync with an own sync server.

Since a few weeks the synchronization of tabs doesn't work right. I use five devices. On my Macbook, the iPhone and the iPad mini I can see and reach the tab-sync of these three devices.

On another iPad and an Linux-PC, wich I added at last, I can see the tab-sync of all five devices.

How can I force the first three devices to sync the tabs of all five devices? I did alread several steps of testing and trying, like manual synchronization or remove and adding again all devices to the account.

It would be great to find some help! Thanks in advance and best regards - Daniel

Hi, I'm a student and I am not tech savvy. Not so literate about codes and customization, but I can understand and follow instructions for those who can help me.

I've recently move to firefox from chrome few days ago. And I noticed that when I'm uploading some of our video lectures in google drive / google classroom, it is very slow. So I tried using my laptop's microsoft edge browser, and it is 2-3x faster there.

What could be wrong?

We run Firefox on all our clerk computers at the public library where I work. Since the most recent update, our online circulation website which we use to check out books, receives a pop-up blocked message every time we try to print a hold receipt for an item. The website has always been added as an exception to our pop-up blockers, and until just after the most recent update, the blocker had no problem allowing the website through. Now it does. I have tried clearing the browser caches, removing and adding the website to the exceptions list again, and restarting the browser, as well as adding different variations of the website to the exceptions list. In the end, we just had to turn the pop-up blockers off. I searched online for anyone else who had this issue, but the ones I found dated back to 2014-2015, and the solution they came up with no longer seems to exist in the Firefox settings. So I'm hoping to find an answer here! Thanks.
