ReCAPTCHA doesn't load on some Firefox (v100.0.2) pages (& sometimes a 'Pay Now' button or similar)

Dear Firefoxers,

Over the last year or so, I've had to switch to Chrome to load some pages properly. reCAPTCHA is proving to be a particular problem - which I'm told is powered by Google? I could be blocking Google content too much within my Firefox browser?

My wife is a long-term Chrome fan and says, "I don't know why you bother with Firefox, Chrome is much better", but I rebuke and say, "No! It's been great over the years, I've been using it since 2003".

Do I need to change my settings somewhere? At times certain pages don't load - it'll say 'Click Verify; or something similar and the 'Verify' button doesn't appear - I load the same page in Chrome, and boom, it's all there.

Am I doing something wrong with Firefox? I have version 100.0.2 (64-bit). Or is it time to give in to the mighty Google and go to Chrome after loyally using Firefox/Mozilla since 2003? (A daft thing to ask on a Firefox forum, I know!).

Many thanks if you can help or advise.

I'm using Mac OS and the system dialog works better for me than the one provided by Firefox. And if a preview is necessary, it is possible to activate "Preview" from the system dialog box (Additionally offers the possibility of generating a pdf).

On this forum the subject is very present; there are a large number of "about:config" keys whose modification is supposed to provide a solution; it's a big mess. Some changes that worked with Firefox 101 no longer work after updating to Firefox 102. Eventually I found an answer here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363191

This question is important. Can you suggest a stable and accessible solution for future Firefox updates? An option in the "Preferences" menu?

Ebay labels have worked fine for 19 years, but for the past 10 days labels being generated still look ok . . . although slightly different . . . and are no longer scanable at the post office. Ebay has been unable to fix the problem so I'm wondering if it might be from my end? These "new" labels have what appear to be "pieces" of a QR code in 3 places.

Hi, in just the past few days I've discovered that when I visit a website and set up a log-in ID and password, the password that Firefox Manager offers to save isn't being saved correctly. For example, say I use the password 143143, it saves it as something like 973973.

This has happened to me three times that I'm aware of (and I kept having to go back to Safari's saved passwords to find the correct ones, since I typically use randomly generated passwords.

I'm running macOS Mojave, 10.14.06, so I haven't changed the OS in well over a year. (I haven't updated as I have an SSD that's not APFS.) Any suggestions? Many thanks.

Why does every update include loads of stuff that worked fine before but then gets broken?

BBC News webpage - always was fine - update 105.0 arrived - now has to be zoomed down to display correctly on a 12" Macbook. Default appears to be trying to display a mobile layout.

I don't want to have to adjust the zoom every time I look at it. And I don't want to set the zoom to 90% for everything.

Any suggestions for a cure? Thanks.

Any reason for this and how to fix this problem?

Good Afternoon,

Yesterday I went to use my Arkscan Label printer as I always have for years and it distorts the image very largely as appose to fitting 4 x 6 as it always has. I re downloaded the driver, checked my setting from my label shipping site (etsy) and all is the same. My co-workers is still working, (she does not do automatic updates). After reaching out to technical support from Arkscan it is a widespread problem after your latest update to firefox. I was suggested to use a different browser such as Chrome or Edge. Will you be addressing this issue ASAP or should I use another browser from here on out?

Thank you,

Hi, I first posted this in error in the Discussions section and was pointed to this forum.

Articles from the Washington Post (washingtonpost.com) are not displaying entirely correctly in FF v103.0.1, Mac OS 10.14.6 (Mojave). The headline and body text appears normally, but the lead graphic or photo is just a blurry smear, the Comments button does nothing, comments do not load at all, the Section button doesn't work, the Sign In button doesn't work, and the magnifying-glass Search function doesn't work correctly). Links at the bottom of the page to other articles do lead to the articles themselves (which are also displayed as described above), but the links, normally shown as an image with a headline, just appear as a gray rectangle. Article display worked normally in 102.0.1 and works normally in Chrome. Articles from the New York Times and a couple of other randomly selected periodicals that I read all work normally in 103.0.1.

jscher2000, a Discussions collaborator, suggested that I toggle the Reader View switch. When I do that, the article text displays fine but there are no photos or graphics. In-article links (to sources, other articles, etc.) do work; links to other Washington Post articles produce the same result (very blurry lead photo, no photos at all in the body of the article, Sign In, Section and Comments buttons not working, etc.).

Because the Sign In button on the newly opened article does not work, I can't verify that I am indeed logged in, even though I am logged in on the main washingtonpost.com page.

jscher2000 also suggested that "One possible reason for the content to look blurred on a news site would be if one of your add-ons removed a forced-subscription overlay without cleaning up fully. However, if you are already a subscriber, then that would be unlikely (assuming you are signed in)." I don't quite know what to do about this -- I don't know what the forced-subscription overlay is or where I'd find it or what to do about it. I do have several add-ons installed, mostly to block ads and trackers and promote security. Also, as I mention, I can't verify whether I am still signed in when I open a new article because the new article displays a non-working Sign In button even though I'm signed in on the main page. So I'm kind of stuck on that one.

Everything I describe here was not a problem in FF102.0.1 -- things worked fine. After upgrading to FF103 and finding the problems, I went backward and reinstalled FF102, and after some fumbling around got my old profile installed. Everything worked normally. And everything works normally with the same Web sites and pages in Chrome.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this. In the meantime, I'll go back to FF102.0.1 and stand by for further developments.

Suddenly, as of this morning, downloading is behaving differently-in a bad way.

• The first problem is that downloads are no longer showing their bit rate; I cannot tell how fast or slow a given download is progressing. I have different available servers and need to select the best for the situation.

• The second is that, upon completion of an mp4 download, my media player (VLC) opens the file and starts playing it, which didn't happen before. It's extremely distracting.

I can't find anything in Firefox preferences which might alter these behaviors.

I don't know enough about these particular events to know whether to attribute them to Firefox or to the website that is providing the files.

Hoping for assistance getting things back to where they were, with thanks…

Just jumped from 91ESR to 102ESR, and am annoyed by some new "features". (That's why I use ESR, so this doesn't happen often.)

First, I noticed that the default for downloading changed from "ask" to "save". I eventually found how to fix that, but, in the process of searching, I typed "firefox download" in the urlbar, and suddenly up popped "Trying to fix a problem?", suggesting I reset Firefox.

I'm old enough to remember Clippy (look it up), and feel the same way as I did then. Call this new feature "Flippy".

I did some searches, found that this behavior has been called "intervention" (I prefer "Flippy"). I also found old sugesstions on how to disable it, but they don't seem to work.

Even Microsoft provided a way of disabling Clippy. How do I disable "Flippy"?

Hi there,

I've got plenty of bookmarks organized in folders and sub-folders (never could wrap my head around using tags). Normally, hovering on top of a folder or sub-folder just opens it. However for some unknown reason, some folders just don't open on hovering. By contrast, opening the "Manage bookmarks" pane shows all bookmarks are there and functional. The issue only appears in the menus, and I'm not sure when it appeared exactly.

Already tried: Renaming faulty folders: no effect Moving bookmarks into a newly created folder: no effect Moving faulty folders into an already-working folder: works, except if the folder is the one containing the root menu.

Screenshots: A working sub-menu: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-01-10-56-24-be01e3.png

Hi, There is very little help if you can still log in in FB and Twitter but you lost all your feed and messages. It happened after refreshing FF. Switched both profiles in about:profiles. Logged out and in in both. All there is left is, check if Java script is enabled. Pretty desperate, but I'll try. So I am looking for my web content. According to this, I have to look for "list all tabs" under the "carrot icon". I can't find it.
