Some of my websites load very slowly. So slow that I can use Chrome, login to that site, complete my business, log off, and Firefox is still loading. I don't load extras into Firefox and I don't believe I have anything extra loaded. Some of the websites I have problems with on a regular basis are: Yahoo.com, loading articles, and Synchrony.com for credit cards, such as Amazon, JC Penney and others. Occasionally, close to rarely, they will load immediately, but the majority of the time it takes minutes. Thank you.

Where do notifications to "usefulcontentsite.com" come from?

Sometimes I get notifications from Firefox which send me to "usefulcontentsite.com" (don't click this, might be harmful!) and when I click them, uBlock Origin blocks them. So I'm pretty certain that is spam (or worse). However, I could never attribute this to any page or maybe some harmful extension I have installed. Also, I mostly block site's requests for notifications.

Here is the list of installed add-ons: - ClearURLs (recommended by Mozilla) - Firefox Multi-Account Containers (official extension) - KeePassXC-Browser - uBlock Origin (recommended by Mozilla) - User-Agent Switcher and Manager (recommended by Mozilla)

So imo nothing exotic here.

Does anyone here have a clue where those notifications might come from?

ClearQuest: Firefox file open has issues

Hello,

When trying to open files from ClearQuest in Firefox, the file format is not always correctly recognized: every time it is necessary to manually browse for the application (e.g. Word, Excel) to open the file. Moreover, when Outlook msg file is being opened, it fails with an error message: "The command line argument is not valid. Verify the switch you are using."

MS Edge works OK. But there are other sites that don't work well with Edge - I need a single browser for all Thales applications, and so far it's been Firefox. Every time to fix it should clear cash and set up new profile. It is working for awhile then again cause a problem. Please advise us ASAP. Thank you for your time.

Whether I'm on a search page and click a link or type in the url, when I'm in Firefox (my preferred browser), it just spins and rarely reaches the site most of the time. If I'm in yahoo mail it often says "can't connect to internet".

If I type the same url or click on a searched link in chrome or edge it works fine.  I don't get the "can't connect to internet" notice on the other two.  What is going on?

It seemed to have come on right after an "automatic update" yesterday. Please help me to know what to do, to get my emails back to normal. Thank you very much.

For a while now whenever I drag and drop an image into Google Image, the results show up as pixelated pink, blue, green, yellow etc images. Not a single trace of the original image can be seen.

It has been like this for several updates now, I lost count how many to be exact. But it's been months. In Edge it works just fine, but I don't plan changing browsers just because of that.

If anyone knows how to fix this, I'd love to know.

Thank you.
