Tried restoring through menu several different bookmark dates, different size/link amounts, loops and never completes.

External backup in future, best way???

Other issue is copying link from a Google tab, to a Facebook tab, have about a 10-20-second delay (a block) before I can access the Facebook tab to paste the link - This worked fine until about a month ago. Opera work fine.

Should I forced FF to complete SANDBOX mode to restore functionality??? Switch to DEVELOPER version??? Try to GO-BACK MUCH OLDER VERSION???

Thanks,

Tim

I'm getting warning emails (2 so far) that windows 8.1 will no longer be supported after I think the end of this year and that I should buy windows 11. Since I use firefox exclusively, does this warning affect me? I'm not very computer savvy and am not sure what is the relationship mozilla firefox to windows (I think it's microsoft windows). I guess this computer has windows 8.1 but I'm not sure. Also, awhile back, microsoft edge showed up on my laptop but I've never even opened it, not even sure what it is. Not sure exactly when but I bought this Asus laptop but it's been several years. Thank you very much for any instruction and/or advice you may be able to give me. Randy Boone.

WHY do you strip my FireFox every 4 times I update? Sooner or later I will get tired of this circle jerk. Put my FireFox back like I run it, you try and try to have me run a generic Browser, when they do me no good, trying to mine my data is futile, as we show time after time. I like FireFox because I can cut the dead weight and go to work. Please help Robert StrongBow

Hi to Firefox support,

I now have a student discount in my Vienna Symphonic Library account, however, when I log in, it does not show up in Firefox, but when I log in on my Chrome Browser, it does show up. Is there some way to fix this up? It's just that I use my Firefox browser most of the time. I hope it's no trouble to look into this - my apologies if it is a bit too hard to fix up.

Every year or so I try to switch to Firefox but always have trouble with basic website access - FF is simply unreliable with accessing random websites, problems that I never experience with any other browser.. Tried today - downloaded, fresh install, new profile, the only extension is 1password. Able to log into Amazon.com no problem, but harbor freight simply doesn't load. Open up Edge and it loads immediately.

I tried troubleshooting mode, no luck. I'm using Win 11, FF 104.0.1 64bit on Dell XPS 15.

What am I doing wrong here? THanks

When trying to reply to an Optimum Online email and making a correction I can only delete one letter at a time. The cursor disappears after each letter is deleted and must be replaced using the mouse. The problem is not present when using CHROME. Optimum support confirms that it is a FIRE FOX problem.

I was away from my desktop for a few months. During that time, I sent a number of tabs from Firefox on Android to my desktop. I've just logged into my desktop, updated Firefox, and synced, and 0 tabs came through. There were some errors in about:sync-log, which I don't see a way to attach, but here are some representative lines: 1662515573549 Sync.Status DEBUG Status.service: success.status_ok => error.login.failed 1662515586056 Sync.Telemetry ERROR Notification for engine tabs but it isn't current

Is there any way to get those tabs back?

Why doesn't the IRS login website work with Firefox?

Specifically, if you say you forgot your password you cannot select a state. The drop down menu just keeps loading.

Works fine in other browsers. Pretty fundamental flaw here - if government tax websites do not function with a browser that is intended to facilitate an open internet that is about as much of a fundamental problem as we can get to.

I seems like every time I agree to an upgrade, the upgrade loads and then there are other problems to fix. So, I have stopped accepting upgrades. Is this common? Right now I am thinking I would like to reinstall the new Firefox but can I do that over the existing Firefox application or should I accept a recent upgrade. My current firefox application is giving me trouble so I need to do something safe. Thank you for any suggestions you have.

Can I check to see if I have a virus, etc.

I'm repeatedly having an issue where if I use the scroll bar to scroll up quickly my firefox closes, but it doesn't get reported as a crash. If I immediately try to open firefox again it tells me the old one is still running but not responding so I have to click close to open a new session. This has been happening for weeks now.

I considered that maybe there's some kind of interaction with the exit button since it is above the scroll bar and this only happens when I try to scroll up fast and far, but I've not been able to recreate this issue manually, releasing right click doesn't close the browser even if I hover over the x so I have no explanation on why this happens.

Please help, thanks.

PayPal Pay window pop-up will not load on any merchant site in Firefox browser only

Currently on Firefox 104.0.1, but I updated it trying to fix this problem. I had 98 or something before.

When I am on any merchant site and I choose their pay by PayPal button, a PayPal pop-up window opens, saying I am recognized on this computer, but then it never finishes loading to the payment options. Actually, I see the options there, but they are greyed out and very blurry, so I cannot make them out and select any of them does not work either.

I have deleted cookies multiple times; ensured paypal.com is allowed pop-ups as well as the merchant websites. I upgraded Firefox. I only have one add-on listed, Amazon Assistant, and I had this problem before I installed it. I have tried every solution I can find on line, although all postings are at least a year old or older, but nothing has worked.

I use to be able to get it to finish loading if I closed the pop-up and reopened it and refreshed the merchant page, but that is no longer working.

It worked on Edge. I hate Edge.

Firefox, please help fix this!

Please see attached screenshot. I have been logging onto my Online Banking with Nat West and when I log out I am now getting the message Firefox cannot open this Page. I should see the Nat West page again straight away showing I have logged out of my Online Banking. The message refers to a security issue that a website has embedded onto the Nat West website.

When I use Safari the message does not appear which indicates to me it is a Firefox issue.

I am not certain what I should do to resolve this issue is this a Firefox issue or Nat West issue or a problem with my Mac computer.

Please can you advise me what I should do next to resolve the issue.

Thank you

Using a MacBook Pro 2018 with macOS 12.6.1 and Firefox 104.0.2.

Lately, while going to various site, one such s Amazon and many others, I receive the following message:

Unable to connect

An error occurred during a connection to www.amazon.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

All three of these suggestions DO NOT WORK! I can go to many other sites without any problems. These “Unable to connect” site do connect using Safari and Google WHY not Firefox? I’ve dropped these other browsers years ago but it’s beginning to look like I’ll have to drop Firefox. Also, just to go to Firefox “Submit Feedback” or Firefox “Help”, the same thing happened, see above!

I need help and/or BETTER suggestions!

I'm currently experiencing difficulties with the Twitch video player. After typing a message of a certain length, between 3-4 lines, the video player starts moving back and forth in time with the cursor and stops when the cursor stops. I have no idea what causes it. I've turned off all my addons, reset Firefox, and messed around with settings. the only thing that stops it is running troubleshoot mode, but i don't know what is being changed to fix the issue.
