Using two websites and now they do not load properly. They show as if they are word documents. I have to use Opera to get the original look. One site, I click on the links and nothing happens. Everthing was fine before the current update. These constant updates are getting really annoying and there is no consideration on how they affect users or the display of sites

Firefox 92.0.1 in Windows 10 Pro x64 will not play any audio. I have Opera, Edge, and Chrome installed and they all play audio just fine. I have done the following:

- Disabled all extensions - right clicked the volume icon to open the volume mixer and made sure Firefox volume was set correctly

       (at same level as everything else) (see attached picture)

- went into settings -> sound -> advanced sound options -> App volume and device preferences and

       made sure Firefox was set to Default (just like all the other browsers) (see attached picture)

- Uninstalled / reinstalled firefox - Created a brand new profile, from scratch - Reinstalled my sound drivers and NVIDIA video driver - restarted windows

How do I fix this problem?

Example: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/228747/flammen-danish-resistance-fighter and all other filepages from that site (should be normal HTML, this is not a link to an actual downloadable file). Worked until 90 or 91, works in all other browsers and even in FF on iOS/iPadOS, now I only get an endless "loading …" icon. No idea what to do. Tried to disable Ghostery, but that did not help. Regards, Lutz

My Firefox Web Browser automatically, and unstoppably removes / before the word "wright" in URLs, leaving me unable to access any sites where the URL contains "/wright" or "/~wright". Is there any obvious reason why it is doing this? Can I work around this somehow? The site I am trying to access is http://www.astro.ucla.edu/~wright/CosmoCalc.html .

Soooo, I have to admit defeat on this one. I travel often to South America and back to the states about every other month. I need access to a couple of job search sites while in Colombia but I can not make the location stable. Every one of the sites I open gives me a Brazilian site link. I have set everything I can think of the the United States (Laptop main location service, Mozilla location, etc) with no change. When I open Indeed.com or Glassdoor.com or any other ones I get the dame results...Brazilian search results???

By the way, this happens when I open them in Edge or Chrome too...I know it's know a browser issue but I can't fix it anyway I try... :[

Thanks a million in advance.

I type in indeed.com and get this https://br.indeed.com/?r=us

All of a sudden I have to log in to all the common websites I use such as Yahoo mail. It could have been something I changed but I don't know what. From what I understand it may have something to do with the setting Cookies and site data. I think that if the box that says "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is checked then the log ins will not be remembered. The problem I have is that particular setting is ticked and it is shaded and I cant uncheck it. Can someone provide a simple solution please?

As the title says every time I go to type in "Google" it recommends "Gmbinder" and so far all the support article things say the same thing, for me to delete the history or hover over it and press Delete and every time I do it's still there.
