At some time in the past I installed regular Firefox and updated throughout the years. But for the past maybe year or so, the updates have been Firefox ESR. I don't recall ever having installed the ESR version. Why am I only getting Firefox ESR updates?

I also had a problem on my Mac with Weather Channel and Weather Underground's Wundermap not loading on Firefox.

I launched Firefox in Safe Mode and the maps loaded with no problem. It turns out that the culprit preventing loading in my Firefox browser was the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension. Since disabling it, the maps are back for the first time in at least a year. I had searched for the answer to my issues for that entire period with no luck. Now I don't have to open another browser for a decent weather map.

I hope this will help some of my fellow Firefoxers.

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Friends, I use FF extensively and prefer not to change but it's been very annoying as of late.

Running v83. Even downgraded to v82 and it worked for some minutes but now it's back to same behavior. [struggle to download to 82 is here: https://rezamusic.yolasite.com/technical-tips.php]

If you google "squeeze lemon" for example -- on my Chrome it shows images and a list of drop down subjects "people also ask".

On Firefox, the pictures don't show -- and drop downs are frozen (don't work). Also on other sites that have a Captcha, Firefox just doesn't work. Seems same problem with 82. Help!

Images are from Chrome -- and last one from Firefox

For the last couple of days I have been having trouble with my Garagesale ebay listings. The images will not download when I start a Garagesale listing. The problem is specific to Firefox, as the same listings display correctly on Safari, with all images in place. Is there a security or other preference that might stop the images loading from the Garagesale server? I also get an error message when trying to access some other pages on the garagesale website (see attached image). Any help or possible solutions would be very welcome. I've tried all the usual cache emptying, refresh Firefox, restarts, etc, without any luck.

Thanks in advance.

How settings for privacy and security are supposed to work vs. how they work

1. I have ALL cookies blocked in all windows, through the CUSTOM option. Some websites defined in the Exception list as Blocked and some websites that I cannot recognize (and are not on the Exception list as Allowed or Allowed for session), still save cookies that I can see under Manage Data. The first two screen captures )on the left) show Google as blocked, but still saving cookies. Is this a feature or a bug?

2. I am using a website called athenahealth. It forced me to allow for session a bunch of domains and subdomains, including one that starts with 8752-2.

The last 2 screen captures show: - info in the Shield for cookies, where the subdomain starting w. 8752-2 is shown as blocked

- the list of exceptions that shows this same subdomain (starting w. 8752-2) as allowed for session.

How is the above possible? Is this the way this is meant to work?

3. Is there a way to copy out, export or at least print the list of websites under Exceptions? I am concerned that somehow they are deleted (I was reading that Refresh deletes them, maybe something else does that too) and it took me quite a lot of experimentation to figure out what is that I have to allow for websites that I need vs. what I can safely block, when blocking ALL doesn't do the job.

4. Is there anything planned to allow a preview before printing (like in Safari) to facilitate printing only what one wants to print?

I'd very much appreciate answers to the above.

Firefox won't play any video, on any website at all. I get different error messages on different sites, such as: The video playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the video used features your browser did not support OR Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video. I've tried following some of the advice in the forums here, so I cleared the cache and the cookies, I ensured DRM content is enabled, and I unchecked the 'Use hardware acceleration when possible' option under preferences. None of this has made any difference. I also restarted firefox and installed an adobe flash player add on. Still no success. Any advice?

I have been trying all day to access the Centers for Disease Control website at cdc.gov. Firefox (83.0/Mac) just says it can't contact the server. I used Network Utility to look up the IP address of the site, which reported 198.246.102.49. I entered that address into Firefox and it refused to go there, saying it was a potential security risk.

So I tried Safari (14.0.1), and cdc.gov loads immediately with no problems.

When I start up Firefox, my home page is a small square (3 inches square) showing a portion of my home page. When I try to expand the area (i.e. I hit the green button) it takes up the entire screen but I do not have access to the tool bar above the screen. Nothing I do seems to clear this up. I tried taking a screen shot of both screens but I got a message that the screen shot was too large. I don't know if there is a way to get around that or if my problem is common enough that someone can figure out what is happening. Help please!!

This has just been happening recently and I don't always need to open the files right away. It just slows my progress down and it's annoying! Thank you in advance!
