I think you need a place where users can easily report errors. I frequently find Firefox doesn't work with some sites, or stops working where it has worked before, especially where some login or click button is required. Have a look at this site, New Zealand government register for charities: https://register.charities.govt.nz/CharitiesRegister/ViewCharity?accountId=1ebd3717-79f0-e911-ba6c-00155d6b7730&searchId=6827e00b-e624-4fe4-ad80-8ccb4645ead2 I have to use a different browser now to access this site, which I frequently need for work.

Cheers

Firefox could not download the search plugin from: https://d2lo25i6d3q8zm.cloudfront.net/browser-plugins/AmazonSearchSuggestionsOSD.Firefox.xml

another post suggested checking the about:config browser.search.region mine says "GB" which would be correct for .co.uk

All other search plugins work fine. Any suggestions?

I am accessing my ISP to download the security software. I need to be able to select the Operating System. When I click on the drop down box I am prompted for the OS, but when I select it the drop down box does not populate. I then get a message to select the OS. This works with Microsoft Edge.

Hi there - I accepted Firefox's prompt to "refresh" the browser and had no idea it would take away my add-ons. How do I get these back? I don't even remember what they all were, but I know they made a huge difference and now I can't believe all the ads I'm seeing and then my "facebook container" (and other kinds of container tabs) is gone too! How do I fix this? Can I undo the "refresh"??

Hello,

While in my internet banking it is not possible to copy/paste the IBAN, the sum or just the name or anything. No matter if I used the context menu copy/paste function or the keyboard shortcuts. I am trying to copy from a Google Drive opened text file or a template saved in my online banking.

In Chrome there was no issue with copy/paste.

Outside of my banking, there are no issues with copy/paste.

I expect it is a security setting somewhere, do you know which one it is?

Thank You!

I've written about this before and never got a working answer. I have to use Chrome or internet explorer for some work because FireFox won't open the sites. This problem hasn't been fixed by I clearing cache and cookies as recommended back when I first asked a year or so ago.

Now the latest website I haven't been able to use is the Post office! USPS.com -- If I try to track a mail piece using my tracking number the site can't bring it up. The site tries for long time then tells me to try later. When I try with another browser such as Chrome, the result is there within a couple of seconds. It looks like I'm going to have to leave FireFox which I hate as I've used it so long - over ten years at least.

I started with Netscape, lived through Mozilla and then been FF ever since. I love it. But increasingly, I am running into problems with using features in many websites.

For instance with Cigna Health, you can't reset your pw and open certain other links. Cigna Support has a simple solution which has always solved my problem: use Chrome or Edge.

B&H Photo Video mostly works but for instance if you are looking at the pictures associated with a product review and try to enlarge them, FF won't do it. Chrome and Edge do it.

I am finding more and more websites that have these glitches. It's almost as if some website designers are not paying any attention to compatibility of their product with FF.

Am I missing something in the config of FF or are these issues real and likely to get worse over time? I am very worried that if it continues that I will get a message like "Many features on this website are not compatible with FireFox."

I am not a programmer but if there is anything I can do to help, I am glad to do so.

Is this really Mozilla or Google playing dirty? I ask because the site I was trying to access suddenly has stopped working on other browsers, so I thought I would try it on Firefox, and this is what happened. I do not have the security key it is asking for so I cannot even log into the site. The site support told me that they recommend Google Chrome. It seems too coincidental that it suddenly stops working on other browsers and Firefox won't even let me login. Nor has it EVER asked me for a physical security key to access any site before.

My laptop is often "borrowed"; access to my "recently bookmarked" items can (occasionally) be inappropriate. I am surprised that there is not a 'easy to access' method to toggle it OFF (!?) I found the below describing how to does this. HOWEVER, I do not find the key (showRecentlyBookmarked).

SUGGESTIONS ?

using: Windows 10 Home 22H2 build 19045.3930


Directly Edit a Preference The menu item switches a hidden preference from true to false, and you can do that directly as follows: (A) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful. (B) In the search box above the list, type or paste book and pause while the list is filtered (C) Double-click the browser.bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked preference to switch the value from true to false

I have a very fast internet connection, 200 mbps and everything else on both my laptop and my mobile phone are working fine but Firefox is very slow. Pages load ok but videos will play for a short time and then freeze never to continue and downloads are painfully slow, 2 to 4 mbps. Edge and Chrome download normally and videos play with no issue. I need this fixed or Firefox is going bye bye!

This problem occurs on My wife's and my machines. My wife has a printer. I do not. When we try to print the preview shows only a few lines or at best a half page. Even if we want to print multiple pages that's all that shows up. We have "print all" as the default setting. The problem started about a month ago. I think it has something to do with the newer versions of Firefox.
