In the past few months, I've had problems with links that come from emails received on my account. There are a couple of senders who have links to a web page. When I go to that page, they often will have a youtube link, but the link is missing. Further, when working with the sender, they send another email with the web page pasted into it, I still don't see the link. They can see it before they send it.

I'm getting email direct from their website and am not using outlook or another client on my end. I have the same results on every browser I've tried. I'm not using any ad blocker and Firefox and Windows are up to date. I have also tried disabling my firewall. Nothing seems to help so far.

Anyone have an idea of what I might be missing?

Thanks!

macOS Catalina 10.15.7, Firefox 108.0.1

For as long as I remember, Firefox has ordered the window list that is displayed by selecting Window in the top Menu Bar in the order that the windows were created. This past week after a computer restart, the order has changed to alphabetic based on the title of the window. How can I get back to the previous method, ordered by creation time?

This is similar to another question by redochre77 on 11/9/22 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1396298

I'm also having trouble with the browser: when I left my desk this morning for a 1/2 hour and came back, the history showed places I had not visited nor would I. Have you seen that before? Nancy

Dear all,

recently I picked up Mozilla again and saw some weird website formatting for some sites. It sometimes only affect certain areas (see attached picture Bad Formatting Amazon, where one part got squished and dragged down very much) and sometimes it affects the whole website (please refer to the other two pictures, one showing the proper formatting and the other one a formatting, which occurs over time, when leaving the website open)

Can I change any settings to combat this? Looking forward to your input!

Thank you and best regards, David

Suddenly today my browser had switched any current tab to the bottom of my window, but it also only lets me see one at a time..which means I can't see multiple tabs open unless I close the current one. My tab bar is gone entirely and was up-top as it's always been, just under the URL box.

I didn't hit any key combos that I know of that would cause this, and I can't seem to find anyone else with the same problem when I search for a solution. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?? It's very odd and annoying, I've never had it happen before now..

I took a screen-shot of the problem, showing what happens when I open a site or any tab:

Thank you very much for taking a look and any help with this strange issue,

-Chris

The Update to 108.0.1 succeeded, but the partial process for "sync" still shows as partway. Must've clicked that item by mistake, and then killed it after seeing the scope--since I don't use a smartphone., etc., anyway!

We should be cautioned that this 108.0.1 upgrade is a complicated one. At midnight I just wanted to do a SIMPLE update (release notes listed just one item), shut it off and hit the sack --not be swamped with all the myriad new choices and features to learm! --as I now see.

Is there a way that I can recover my New Tab page setup (just the new tab page) from a Macrium Reflect backup of my OS disk? I recently did some cleanup that cratered my FireFox profile (developer and beta also). I would like to somehow recover just the New Tab page setup from the os backup. Any solution? Thanks for your help.

Browser crashes and pages not opening

About 6 weeks or so ago, I began finding messages intermittently on my screen when I got up in the morning. It would state that Firefox had crashed and needed to be restarted or closed. It would transmit error information first in either case. Firefox has sent updates a few times since, and if I had the browser closed it would update upon being opened. The original problem is still there and now I have an additional problem. The first problem was a nuisance but the second is not acceptable. My email service is fastmail which I have used for many years. Sometimes I will open an email and need to click to go to another location. My problem is that I will click to do so and I get left with a blank screen and I never arrive where i am trying to go. It never reports any kind of an error. If I use Microsoft Edge everything executes as it should. That tells me there is no problem with the emails. the email provider, and takes the problem back to Firefox. When you sent an update you may have reset my settings. It seems like it sees opening the new page I am going to is likened to blocking a popup window. I am going to guess it is treating every page I attempt to open via the page I am on like a popup window. This problem is somewhat inconsistent. Sometimes it executes just fine. I get 80 to 100 emails each day and this feature not working properly is very aggravating. Example: I open a Kohls ad email or a Sam's Club ad email and click on the object I am interested in. However, all I get is a blank page and no errors reported. It may or may not execute properly if I go directly to the retailer and not through the email service. Yet it works fine if I use Microsoft Edge for the same procedure in the same email or even if I go to the retailer's webpage directly rather than through an email. Same results, Edge works fine, Firefox doesn't work. Help me out here please.
