So i will describe exactly what ive done up until now.

Earlier today i logged into gitlab.com a website that has remote servers to remove a candidate from our server The reason this is relevant i think is i havent logged into this place for a good month or two, roughly 10-20 seconds afterwards, every tab in my entire firefox browser got the PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR error, No matter which website i go to, even google, my email, youtube, anything and everything gives me the error, So the troubleshooting steps i have done from then - Cleared cache and cookies several times - Restarted both PC and router & manually reconnected the cables on both ends - I did the Cmd Command winsock reset & restarted the PC - Full reinstall of firefox in its entirety - Disabled entire kaspersky firewall & additional security - Disabled windows defender firewall aswell - Disabled VPN services on my system and within the browser

After trying all these things i gave up on firefox and decided to download chrome and try this, chrome worked!, And then i imported my bookmarks and such ( i work from home so thats vital), And after importing them i began jumping through sites to make sure everything was working and it was, then i began logging into my pages again like email, google , youtube, work stuff etc, and eventually the gitlab account aswell.. and then, another 10 seconds late it immediately stopped working on google chrome, all tabs claim to have no internet and stick me with the ERR CONNECTION CLOSED error, Once again i preformed the same troubleshooting steps but nothing came of it. So both firefox and chrome are bricked and refuse to work.

Im currently using microsoft edge to write this and im afraid to touch anything here or login to anything incase it also breaks.

Shortly after chrome gave up the game, i tried to do a full reinstall of firefox, again did not work, i then tried to do a reinstall of chrome, and the chrome installer now claimed i had no internet, whilst i was on call in discord and using other programs with internet. so chrome refused to install, I then managed to install the chrome 'standalone' which doesnt require internet and it worked, i did not import anything this time and just browsed around, and shortly after, once again, without logging into anything, it gives me the same error, and now even if i reinstall the standalone chrome, it refuses to work, once its broke its broke for good.

Im completely at a loss here i feel like ive been hacked or something because it works then suddenly its broke forever, ive been reading up that it may be something on my PC cutting the connection to everything but i really am clueless on what it could be, this was the first time i used my PC today, i didnt have any driver or windows updates, if anyone can provide literally any context or help here it would be greatly appreciated, im not one to make support tickets because i usually research until i fix it, but im out of options

Thank you!

After the last update to Firefox 105.0.1 My wallmart online account grocery ordering will not complete an EBT card transaction. Each time I submit my PIN the window changes to a walmart page and the transaction ceases and logs me out of walmart.

Walmart doesnt have an answer and the site works on other browsers. Like I said previously this just started I believe after the last update to Firefox 105.0.1

This has started to day, I'm running it on Windows 11 and if I minimize a windows sometimes I am unable to reopen from the taskbar, I would see the browser window flash for 1 second and then a window error bell sound will play, but there is no error message. The only way I can get back that window is to right click the icon in the taskbar and click Restore on the rightclick pane. I would have to do this everytime this happens.

I don't know what caused this, it was fine most of the day and just started late afternoon. Anyone have a clue to the root of this issue and what's your advice?

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.

Same as this problem: [hidden]

My taskbar is set to auto hide and I want to keep it that way. Other chromium based browsers does not have this problem. When I hover my mouse to the bottom of the screen, the Windows 10 Taskbar won't appear. Only when I press the windows key, then it appears. This has been happening on both of my computer for a long time now and it's very frustrating. I am sure I am not in full screen mode. Restarting the browser, or windows explorer or the PC doesn't work. Reinstalling FF also does not work. Finally trying to switch completely to FF but this is keeping me from doing it. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm using an online inventory system and regularly need to print barcode labels. This was all working fine until I updated to 102.3.0esr. Now, the data shrinks to a tiny part of the page when I go to print it. (See screenshots of what it looks like prior to going to the print dialogue and then when I actually go to print it). I've checked various settings suggested on previous posts that sound like the same problem but none of these work (Scaling, shrink, printer margins, clearing the cache etc.). If I choose a different printer and select A4 paper, the data looks to be the correct size (i.e. set for a 2x1 label), albeit on a much larger page.

I downloaded Chrome and I can get it to display and print ok from there. I just don't know what's happened in Firefox. Also, it's not just my system - one of my colleagues had a problem with a standard release. We changed him to the esr version (prior to the 102.3.0 update) and it worked ok then. Obviously something has happened in this update. Any help would be appreciated.

I have installed every update that you have provided, and allowed the install at my discretion. Question; why is it I have no problems at all in any way until I allowed these updated to install. I have never had so many times when the screen stall's, even had to restart the PC with the reset button. Your updates are getting worse and worse :( When I last installed Firefox, I had limited and or no problems with this program, and yet you claim every time you update that you are fixing bugs, glitches, and a whole load of other stuff, but I never had any of these thing's happen until you started updating :( Can you please stop messing with a program that works properly, but putting it back too a version that works without constant problems :(

A few weeks ago I refreshed Firefox because I was having issues with a game I play that uses WebGL and that fixed THAT issue. I had tried everything before I did that, but nothing worked.

Every other website I go to works great for me - loads fast, etc., but when I do a google search, I often have to fresh the page several times. I don't understand why it is that just ONE site is slow. I end up opening Chrome when I want to do a search which is kind of a pain.

Is there anyone else with this issue? What can I do?? I hate the thought of switching search engines.

Thanks for any help.

Under Windows 10 Home, Firefox x64 opens and closes immediately as a limited user. As the administrator this does NOT happen.

I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the temp files and re-installed a fresh copy of Firefox. The same issue exists. If I try to start in safe mode as a limited user, Firefox does NOT open.

Firefox worked without issue yesterday. Has a Windows Update caused this issue? The computer is new with limited programs installed. It can't be the firewall as running Firefox as administrator has NO issues.

What do you suggest?

Hello, I'm using a Synology NAS (DS220+) installed on my local network, behind my internet box). This NAS can be accessed both from the local network (https://192.168.1.nn:ppppp) and remotely across Internet (https://subdomain.domain:yyyyy). With Firefox I can access my NAS locally but not remotely. While this works fine with Chrome or Edge.

As my issue looks like another one on your support site ("Page won't load in Firefox, but works fine in any other browser", opened 7/1/21, 3:39AM), I applied part of the proposed solution: run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, cleared history, cookies, cache; did a refresh; removed then reinstalled Firefox, created a brand new profile. Without success.

Would you please have some ideas to help me? Thanks and regards Matteo
