Gatway Timeout Error when trying to use Ebay Catagory Links

I'm completely at a loss with this. Firefox is not able to open eBay category lists. Clicking on the drop-down "Shop by Category", link or any of the sub-category links within the menu go nowhere except for a gateway timeout error after a number of minutes. This is incredibly inconvenient, because unless you are looking for a specific item by searching for it, you have no way to browse through categories. I don't seem to have this problem with any other website that I can think of, but since I use eBay quite regularly (daily), it has long ago gone from annoying to down right intolerable.

This isn't a problem with Safari, but I seldom use that browser preferring to use Firefox instead.

I've tried every solution I've come across. From giving permissions, turning of Firefox Enhanced Tracking, turning off any ad blockers I have. Using Troubleshoot Mode, manually turning off and on extensions, clearing history and all remnants of eBay in case of corrupt cookies or anything else for that matter. I've even lit black candles while dancing beneath a dark moon in hopes of exercising what seems to be a long resident multi-year demon. And the damn thing isn't even paying any rent!

I am on an iMac, using Catalina with everything up to date.

So, I have two questions:

1.) Does everyone else still have this problem? I've seen pages of search results on Google for this and similar issues with eBay and Firefox stemming back three or more years.

2.) If you do not have this problem, what have you done other than fixes I've listed? And if you happened to include a particular color candle and phase of the moon differing from mine even that suggestion would be appreciated. :)

Firefox (10.0002 64-bit) is bookmarking every single page I visit, making the bookmarking function useless to me. I just noticed this problem recently. Someone posted a similar question in 2016:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1077320

He seemed to think the problem was related to an app -- but someone else posted to that question and they did not have any new apps. Nor do I. I haven't knowingly installed any apps to Firefox in the last year.

Can someone please tell me how to stop the bookmarking function from booking pages automatically without my input?

Thanks.

Hi. I've been having this problem with my iMac for sometime, but now it's affecting my Macbook Pro, as well. Both machines are 2015, running OS 10.15.7.

They have problems loading webfonts (I get the annoying question marks). I tried creating a new test user, and the issue persisted. Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks!

Hi Firefox, thanks for a great browser.

Could you please help unlocking the account for [REDACTED BY MODERATOR]

I was busy logging in to Firefox (today's update) using my account and wished to store my login info, but the link upon login was a long useless address specific to the post-login screen and related to adding more devices. I opened a new tab but this was, apparently, a sticky login and the new tab was logged in as well. I logged out of that tab with the obvious (hindsight) effect of interrupting the previous tab/s.

Long story short, the immediate effect was the message in the subject line of this mail. Firefox locked my account and I need it unlocked.

Thanks for your trouble. Kind regards Jacques

I once found a live bug opened for this, but I don't find it anymore.

The spell checking dictionary, as many pointed out, is horrible. It lacks tons of common words, as well as commonly used tech,internet, you name it - jargon words.

Is there (there should be) a repository to add missing words? Through my usage I add words to my private dictionary. Would be shame not to use this as part of this bug handling.

Hello... EVERY time I try to sign into my Yahoo email, I have to go through hoops to actually get there. When I click the box that says ...never ask on this device again, your system ignores it. This "Added Security" is not helpful. nor is it adding any security to anything. All you are doing is making me look for other web browsers. Google Chrome does not do this. Safari does not do this. Opera does not do this. I do not need to be contacted via text message, OR ANY OTHER WAY, to gain access to MY email account. Stop holding me hostage!!

Please tell me how to get rid of this absolutely horrible "feature."
