When I am in 1 window, I have multiple tabs open, but when I hover over the Firefox logo in my taskbar, the tabs appear in different windows that have each tab but not the other tabs from the window I am on. Like every individual tab has its own window. This has never happened to me before, only started happening today.

Trying to download a large zip file. Download stops after roughly 30 seconds and cuts the file

Hello,

I am trying to download a 5GB .zip file from a website. Inside the .zip file is a single .netCDF file. When I download the file and open it, both windows explorer and 7zip say there is a problem with the file: "Unexpected end of data". I have downloaded this file multiple times and the file size is different every time. The largest proportion I have managed to download is 1.7GB. I have noticed that the file size I end up with is proportional to the download speed during the download (usually between 20 to 40 Mbps).

I have also noticed that the download never lasts longer than ~30 seconds, which is why I think it could be a Firefox issue. Is there some way I can remove this 30 second cap? The download speed is limited by the host website so I am afraid there is not much I can do in that regard.

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Discover credit card log-in won't work

Saturday, when I tried to check my Discover credit card account online, it needed to send me a verification code via text. I entered the code and everything worked OK. I understand that, from time to time, this needs to happen for security purposes. The last text I got this message from Discover for this was back in February.

But then, on Sunday, I got the same message. But this time, I never received the code. I waited about 10 minutes, then asked for a different code to be sent. I never got this one either. I called Discover, and they tried a few things & eventually verbally gave me a verification code. This worked and I logged in just fine.

On Monday when I logged in, again I was told that they needed to sent me another verification code. I didn't have time to deal with it, so I moved on.

Today, again it required a verification code. I didn't receive the text, waited 10-12 minutes or so, and requested a 2nd code. I never got this on either. I called Discover again, and was connected to their tech support people. We tried several options, then they suggested that I try using a different browser. I also have AVG on my computer. I tried that and got through to my Discover account instantly. They then suggested that I contact you to figure out what the problem is. After I got off the phone with them, I used AVG to log in and out of my Discover account maybe 5-6 times and never had any problem.

Can you figure out why my Discover account isn't working with Firefox? I am currently using version 103.0.2. Firefox has been my primary web browser ever since I got my first computer in March 2000, and this was then known as Netscape Navigator 3.??? I have never had any issue like this with any website I have used until this problem started with Discover.com.

THANKS!

What are the numbers associated with them mean? is that how MANY logs (as in, how many "individual rectangles" each representing a log), or is that how MANY BYTES they can take up before deleting the older logs in the devtool's console.

I have the Distill Web Page Monitor Extension loaded. When I click on it, it shows me all the correct Monitors that I have configured. If I click on "Go to Watchlist" it's supposed to take me to the web management page where all the same Monitors should be shown. It takes me there but there are no Monitors visible. If I go to the webpage https://accounts.distill.io and log in then all the Monitors are correctly displayed. I note that the URL after I click on "Go to Watchlist" is moz-extension://xxxxxxxxxx/ui/inbox.html#inbox and not https://monitor.distill.io/#/w/0/list/all/ after I've logged in at https://accounts.distill.io.

Any suggestions please?

I'm running Distill Monitor Add-On version 1.18.6

I have suddenly become unable to access Amazon Smile through Firefox. Google Chromr seems to work ut I don't really like it. I get the message: Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to smile.amazon.co.uk.

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

This seems strange as I have never had this prolem until today. ps I'm not particularly computer savvy so you'd have to lead me by the hand!

I don't know if this is 'website breakage' or not, but I am unable to use the mouse wheel to zoom when using the Weather.com map page in Firefox. I've tried the same site in MS Edge and it works. I've also verified that I can zoom in and out of Google Maps when using Firefox, so the problem seems limited to Firefox and the Weather.com map page. Any thoughts? I've looked for settings, etc. that might impact the function, but couldn't find any. For further detail, the page appears to react briefly to the scroll wheel, and you see just a fraction of movement, but then it freezes at that magnification and I have to use the + and - icons on the page to zoom in or out. This is not a huge deal, but I don't understand what's happening and I'll take insight. Thanks.

I am trying to 'fork' my FF, duplicating my profile on to a stick, then modify each one so that my work related bookmarks, saved passwords, cookies, history etc are in one profile, and my social/general bookmarks, cookies, passwords etc are in the other. I have done this and using about:profiles can open the non-default (USB stick) profile in a new window, or set the non default profile as default, close, re-open FF into the alternate profile. All good so far. However this isnt working quite as I expected. If I switch to alternate profile, save a bookmark to the shortcut bar, then switch back to the other profile then after a second or two the bookmark I saved in the other profile appears on the shortcut bar?!? This happens whether I have opened alt profile in a new window, or have changed the default profile and restarted FF into the other profile. Is this because in both instances it is using the same local directory? The doesnt seem to be an option to choose a different local directory for the alt profile. This would be ideal if possible as it would ensure that there are no data crumbs left on my PC when using the USB stick profile which is important for my work security. Any help really appreciated.
