Hi,

I'm trying to access my Apple ID (appleid.apple.com). When I select "Sign In" the page hangs and never displays the fields to enter my user name and password. The message I get is "This action could not be completed because of an error. Try again or check back later."

Under Settings > General > Network Settings I selected No proxy and I disabled DNS over HTTPS. But neither of these actions made a difference.

Eventually, I had to use Microsoft Edge to access my account.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Videos don't play in Firefox after updating to Windows 11. They just perpetually load. Playback works fine on Google Chrome, I'm not sure what could be causing this. I tried reinstalling, disabling all extensions, clearing cache, etc. and nothing has worked.

I used to be able to use firefox to order groceries on instacart with no errors or performance issues. Since the end of March, I cannot use the site without interminable errors and slow operation. Error 1727 seems to pop up a lot. I have tried clearing cache and cookies with no improvement.

This is my favorite browser by far, I am willing to pay to use it, but need the old reliable versions of Firefox back!

Today I had to use edge to get my order placed.  :(


Thanks, mmarhoefer

Since the latest (5 May 2022) update to Firefox (to Firefox 100.0) my Gmail account does not work properly on my desktop running W11. Gmail frequently disconnects for varying periods, then reconnects, only to disconnect again almost immediately. Gmail will not let me open another account from within the current account. This does not happen on my Android phone where Gmail works properly. Neither does it happen when I run Gmail through Edge on my desktop. Hence I presume it results from an interaction between Firefox100.0 and Gmail. My wife has exactly the same problem using her Microsoft Surface Laptop under W10 since this latest update.

So this issue just started and it's really annoying.

In order to actually see the downloads, I first have to enable the menu bar and then go Tools -> Downloads

Clicking the ↓ button should open a panel of recent downloads but nothing appears when I click on it. Furthermore, the "download complete" notification that this panel provides are no longer present.

The animation for the panel still works though.

Is there a solution to this?

I have W10 fully updated with plenty of RAM but in the last few weeks, after I boot up in the morning (I shut down every night) it takes a long time (several minutes) for either Firefox or Thunderbird to fully boot up . Firefox opens tomy home page, but does not complete for several minutes so I can go nowhere. If I am patient and wait it is fine the rest of the day..nice and fast. If I shut down and reboot again- very very slow opening of both for the initial time. I have run full virus scans, sfc/scannow, malwarebytes, cleared history and cache and cookies, turned off and on hardware excelerator. Any other suggestions? Word and Excel open quickly as usual.

Firefox 100.0 randomly hangs. Doesn't seem related to particular web site or web page. Is happening with increasing frequency (e.g. every 5 minutes or less).

Browser is completely unresponsive to mouse. Even title bar functions are hung. Must use Task Manager to Firefox end tasks. is happening on multiple independent PCs.

Long time Firefox user (10+ years) about to throw in the towel and go with some other browser unless someone can help with this serious issue. Please help..

Thanks

I run into this at least once a week, on sites that I know are completely legit, including sites that I recently visited successfully. Once it starts happening for a given site, I can't figure out how to get past it and regain access.

I've asked other folks to visit the same sites at the same time, and they can get through. I've tried accessing them on other devices on the same wifi network, and get through just fine. But I can't get to them any more on my main computer.

I've tried clearing cache and deleting cookies and data, and that hasn't helped.

I'm on Windows 10, and (now) Firefox 100.0. I'm in the UK, using Sky internet -- I don't know if that's relevant, but I didn't notice this problem before I moved here (from the US) last year.

As I said, I can still access the sites on another device (an iPad) on the same wifi, so I don't think it's the firewall in my router.

I don't have any antivirus installed -- just using Microsoft Defender. And I'm not using a VPN or anything like that. My browser privacy setting is "Standard"/

The only extensions I have installed are Facebook Container and LastPass.

What can I do to fix this? It's breaking the internet for me.

In the past few days Firefox has stopped showing html pages on my other partitions. Has Firefox changed the way they are doing things or is this a new bug?

The screenshot below shows a web page I regularly use that I keep snippets and brief programming notes. It and all links on all partitions except the root drive are no-longer accessible.

I have used Firefox for over 10 years and never had this happen.

Any ideas what may have happened?

Firefox has my credit card information and it shows up in a window when I go to pay for something, but when I click on the credit card I want to pay with, it won't autofill. In Settings, the box to autofill is checked. This has worked a hundred times before, but stopped working a few months ago. How do I get the autofill to start working again?

Access to Google sites (Gmail, Google Search, Google Calendar) with Firefox (v. 100.0, 64-bit) is very irregular. I can sometimes open the pages, but can't, e.g., edit calendar entries. Often when I click a bookmark (in the Bookmarks Bar), or enter the URL for a Google site, nothing happens. Clicking other bookmarks opens the corresponding pages. Only Google sites seem to be affected. Is FF blocking Google?
