https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?action=track&action=track&tracknumbers=488926552472

when I try to submit the fed ex tracking form for updates, after filling in all the information, i hit submit and nothing happens with firefox. Works fine on chrome or edge but I hate those browsers so want it to work on my everyday browser which is firefox.

is there a setting that needs to be changed?

I know this question has been asked in the past, but I did not find a recent troubleshooting sequence that solved my problem.

I have a Spectrum cable TV account (yes, I'm a dinosaur). MSNBC is part of my package. I like to stream videos of shows on msnbc.com. In order to access content, I have to sign in to my Spectrum account. When I click on "Please sign in", a box appears with various provider names. When I click on "Spectrum", the box closes but nothing else happens. I am not directed to the Spectrum log in page.

I have cleared my cookies, enabled third party cookies, whitelisted the site on Adblocker, and am using Custom Content Blocking for Firefox. Nothing is working. Please help! Thanks.

I just started reusing Firefox and ported my bookmarks and stuff over. Everything was fine but all the sudden when I click my add-ons or extensions, they show up for a second and disappear.

Edited: Never mind, somehow it stopped.

Mijn persoonlijke website is niet beveiligd met een certifikaat (http://) maar staat opgenomen als start (home) pagina. Firefox verandert automatisch het adres naar https://….. = beveiligd dit geeft de boodschap “Kan geen verbinding maken

Firefox kan geen verbinding maken met de server op home.scarlet.be.

   Misschien is de website tijdelijk niet beschikbaar of overbelast. Probeer het over enkele ogenblikken opnieuw.
   Als u geen enkele pagina kunt laden, controleer dan de netwerkverbinding van uw computer.
   Als uw computer of netwerk wordt beveiligd door een firewall of proxy, zorg er dan voor dat Firefox toegang heeft tot het web.”

Bij het starten van firefox en ook bij het manueel intypen van mijn website adres, maakt firefox deze aanpassing naar “https://” waardoor ik mijn eigen website niet meer kan bereiken.

Alle andere websites, zowel beveiligde als niet beveiligde werken normaal

gebruikte firefox versie: Quantum 66.0.3 (64-bits) for Ubuntu canonical-1.0


My personal website is not protected with a certificate (http://) but is listed as start (home) page. Firefox automatically changes the address to https://..... = secured this gives the message "cannot connect to the server on home.scarlet.be. Maybe the website temporarily unavailable or overloaded. Try again shortly. If you do not have a single page can load, check the network connection of your computer. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox has access to the web. "

When starting firefox and also with manual typing my website address, firefox makes this adjustment to "https://" through which I can no longer reach my own website.

All other Web sites, both secure and non-secure work correct,

firefox version:   Quantum 66.0.3 (64-bit) for Ubuntu canonical – 1.0

Firefox used all RAM and SWAP taking mins to load freezing system, then dropped to less than a gig.

  1. 171-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 26 12:43:40 UTC 2019

Opened Firefox one day, and soft-locked my system for several minutes. Killed it... repeated this process over a few days. Today finally opened it and just let it run to see what would happen. Ate all available ram. Then the swap. When it finally maxed both everything emptied out. System is now using less than a gig of ram and about half a gig of swap for everything.

Any idea what just happened and how I prevent it from happening again? I will also note - I have a lot of tabs.

Two days ago, I stopped receiving Gmail (in Thunderbird), while waiting for two VERY urgent messages. This was using my iPad. I received a message similar to "Connection to Server imap.gmail.com Timed Out". I am unable to access any Google account in Firefox, or any site with the name Google in it, receiving the attached Timed Out error message. When attempting the same on my PC (W10 Pro), I have the same issue. Firefox appears not to be able to connect. I changed my search engine from Google to Bing, and received the same messages. If I'm unable to access my Google account, how can I get this problem resolved?

I have a local arduino machine that I can make requests to. In this case the request is http://192.168.0.41/data/EVENTLOG.TXT,LisTwN

I have multiple pc's with the latest version of firefox that this works fine on. I have one 64bit windows 10 machine that when I enter this request firefox asks what to do with this file like I was trying to download it when all it should do is display it. As I stated earlier, it works fine on all my machines and also with chrome safari etc. Also, it used to work on this machine too. Oh, I can download it but that is not what it should do.

Note that the info below is from a working machine, but the one that doesn't work has the same version of firefox I tried to add some snapshot images below but the upload never finishes so hopefully you will have enough info.
