GoDaddy Redirecting Firefox

Hi Folks!

I'm located in the U.S.A. in the Denver, CO. area. I'm not using a VPN or any sort of IP masking technology, so my normal Comcast public IP address should be what's visible when I browse the web. Also the language is set to English-US in Firefox's settings.

Recently I noticed that when I try to login at GoDaddy, the GD website redirects me to the India version of their site (in.godaddy.com). I'm posting in this forum because this only happens when I go there in Firefox. If I use Chrome or Edge (i.e. Chrome rebranded) I get the U.S. version of the GD site. I've verified that my public IP, currently 98.43.226.196, is in fact registered to Comcast. I've cleared cookies and cache, restarted Firefox, but GD still sends Firefox to its India version. Does anyone have any idea why this may be happening?

Thanks!

Scott

Hello, I have a really annoying problem with Firefox. Many times when I try to access a bank website or similar that I have saved as a favorite, Firefox hangs up and stops responding without indication as to what may be wrong. This can happen when I open Firefox and go to the site before any other or after viewing other sites first. I have to go to the windows task manager and stop the process. After about a minute or two, I can go back, open the browser and log in to the site without any problem.

I have the browser set not to remember history (which is exactly what I want) and using Bitdefender antivurus. I am not sure if this is a common occurrence or if there is a known fix. Problem is becoming annoying enough that I considering not using Firefox any more.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Thank you

I am finding many websites do not work properly with Firefox and I am forced to use Chrome. I had contacted support for each website with which I had problems and they all told me to try Chrome. In every instance Chrome worked but Firefox did not.

A few examples of problems: I am unable to log-in on one site, I cannot put any item I want to purchase into the shopping cart of 2 other sites, I can't place a for sale ad in my local newspaper and today I was told I can no longer use Firefox for my webmail account. If I don't use Chrome I can't load new messages or compose messages. Please help.

Thank you!

Introduction So I learned the hard way to never run sudo apt remove python3 on an ubuntu system. I'm running Linuxlite (Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS) on a dell desktop (unsure of the model).

The Problem After looking at some guides and upgrading the operating system, I managed to get most of the fonts to display correctly. Sites with certain kinds of text still appear to be "too bold" (see images).

""What I've tried"" The command actually removed Mozilla, so I had to reinstall it. Updating it also didn't fix the problem. I have messed around with the font settings and nothing changed. It seems that only Mozilla is doing this because the Brave browser displays the fonts correctly. Other than that, I haven't really done all that much. Also the font as I write this is normal.

Thanks for your consideration!

Nnother issue is, if more than one tab is open, can I just click backwards and forwards onto different sites/pieces of work? I used to be able to do this in Google, but in Firefox it has proved impossible. If more than one tab is open, where would the other tabs be? On top, or at the bottom of the screen?
