Using v.80.0.1 (according to FF/Help/About) on Win10-64bit. Cannot log into godaddy.com. Error message is "Yikes! Something went wrong. Please, try again later." Works fine with Chrome, so have to believe it's in FF. Tried changing various settings in Options/Privacy& Security. Anyone else having issues, or better yet, a solution??

Thanks in advance.

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

Hi – I recently restarted my browser and realized that I couldn't connect to any https sites – each attempt would throw a "the connection was reset" error.

I've changed my network settings from DNS-over-HTTPS to No Proxy and sites are now loading correctly.

I'd certainly like to use DNS-over-HTTPS if possible for the greater security, so I'd like to know what's causing the problem.

a. Is it just because I'm in Canada that DNS-over-HTTPS is throwing these errors? (Note: I was living in the US until recently) b. Are there some other proxy or ISP settings that might be causing the problem? c. Or should I be considering whether my connection has an actual security concern?

Thanks.

I have designated that opening a new tab opens Google. I would like the cursor to be in the search box on the page not in the address box. I'm sure this is new behavior for Firefox. It's annoying to start typing and then realize i'm in the address box typing in the middle of the address. How can I change it?

Normally after I restart my computer everything in Firefox works just fine. I have the "restore last session" turned on and it will load my last session. But the last two times I've restarted my computer I have to resign into my Mozilla account, "restore previous session" is not an option, I have to reinstall my add-ins. It fortunately still has my history but it's a super big hassle as I keep browser tabs open to remember things.

I'm on a 2020 MacBook Pro running version 10.15.7 and I'm using Firefox version 80.0.1.

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

Hello. I am having the same issue as another user, but they flagged their question as solved so I'm making a new one just in case.

I can't login properly to YouTube, only in Firefox, even after clearing cache and cookies and disabling add-ons/running safe mode. I can login to my Google account, view my playlists and recommended videos (although the main page with recommendations only shows 5 lines of videos and when scrolling further is not loading). I can't make any edits, for example add videos to the "Watch Later" playlist, that require a login. When I click login, Google shows the 405 error "The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/browse/edit_playlist. That’s all we know." or with other URL, depending on the action taken.

What can I do? Thank you.

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.

First I need to point out I'm very difficult user for FF :) Right now I have 52 windows and 476 tabs open

This not a hardware problem as I have good CPU (Ryzen 5 3600) and 64 gigs of memory - running FF 80.0.1 x64 on Windows 10 19041 x64

Until recently everything was fine - I'm not able to tell when that changed but it's just few days

When I start FF, some tabs (from "restore" session) never load. Tab just shows its loading but never finishes. Moreover if I try to open new tabs, they RANDOMLY also never load - doesn't matter which site/page (in other browser same url opens instantly). I need to open X new tabs, paste URL and hit enter into each and after a while the Xth tab loads instantly. X is changing - with freshly started browser its something like 2-4 new tabs. Later it can be 10 or more until "I find" the tab which loads. When I do that, i can open Dev Tools before pasting URL - Networking tab shows no requests, nothing. Same with right-clicking links in working tabs (open link in new tab).

Working tabs are usually good - left clicking links or F5 works fine. But if the tab is left open for some time without activity, it can also stop working (F5 doesn't help)

What i tried: - disable my Firewall (Kaspersky) - restart FF in safe mode without plugins - no "clear cache and cookies" as its not related to any specific site or page

I got the idea recently that maybe there is some problem with FF processes "rotting" (multi process architecture) so I'v tried to kill some of the sub-processes in Task Manager. Of course its hard to find the right one but I'v managed multiple times to hit the right process and suddenly all "loading forever" tabs showed as "crashed" and when I hit "Restart all crashed", all loaded instantly

Any help appriciated! Thanks!

Why won't my multirow bookmarks toolbar display all of the bookmarks in it? No matter what editing I've done to the userChrome.css file in my profile, the toolbar is either 2 or 3 rows and simply refuses to populate the 3d row to any extent - and it should be about 5 rows long. Here is the .css file:

  1. PersonalToolbar{
 --multirow-bmb-n-rows: 5; /* Control how many rows are shown before scrolling */
 --multirow-bmb-row-margin: 4px; /* Control how much spacing is between rows */
 max-height: none !important;

}

  1. PlacesToolbar > hbox{
 display: block;
 width: 100vw;

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems{
 display: flex;
 flex-wrap: wrap;
 /* --uc-bm-padding is defined in autohide_bookmarks_toolbar.css */
 max-height: calc(var(--multirow-bmb-n-rows) * (4px + 1em + (2 * (var(--multirow-bmb-row-margin) + var(--uc-bm-padding,2px))))) !important;
 overflow-y:auto;
 scrollbar-color: var(--lwt-accent-color) var(--toolbar-bgcolor) ;
 scrollbar-width: thin;

}

This should be doable. Can someone please help me fix this? Thanks.

There is a certain website that I have to visit often. I usually type the first few letters of the URL into search bar but, annoyingly, there's another website with almost exactly the same URL. Firefox always autofills the wrong URL and I always end up getting directed to the wrong site. Is there a way to prevent firefox from autofilling that URL and change it to the correct one?
