Since the version 79 of Firefox downloaded, when I go to Ebay the screen only shows boxes and words. There are no graphics or photos displayed. It looks like a typed page of programming. What do I do. All other sites visited are fine/normal.

Yahoo Mail contacts disappeared when using FF, but show up when using Chrome

Hi all, yesterday I was trying to send an email (yahoo mail) (which I have used exclusively for years) and autocomplete was not working. Puzzled, I checked my contacts to see if the person had somehow been deleted, and to my surprise - I had NO contacts. Oddly, they were all there if I checked "Yahoo Classic View." Naturally I assumed it was a Yahoo issue, but got nowhere trying to look into it. Finally it occurred to me to try opening mail in Chrome and lo and behold, all my contacts were present, regardless of which view of mail I chose.

I really don't want to switch to Chrome because of mail, and although Classic View does work in FF, Classic doesn't have the autocomplete feature - which was the original issue, so it wouldn't solve my issue to revert to it.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Should I refresh FF and lose all my themes and add-ons and have to find them all again, or just uninstall and reinstall? Or is there a simpler way?

Thanks in advance you guys! (Also I tried to upload pics, but they won't load for some reason, I let it run about five minutes at least.)

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.

This refers to Firefox version 80.01.1 (64 bit), on a Windows 10 platform, OS build 19041.450.

I tend to open pdf files in a new tab.

Later if I choose to download that file, I will paste the URL in the file as record.

Now with this version of Firefox, the URL is not shown with the pdf file, but rather a local drive temporary location! (e.g. file:///C:/Users/User/AppData/Local/Temp/recycling-02-00003.pdf)

This does not happen all the time, but at some sites, e.g. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjWlPex8trrAhUh6XMBHf5bAbQQFjACegQIAxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mdpi.com%2F2313-4321%2F2%2F1%2F3%2Fpdf&usg=AOvVaw3fTZswGqS5KjqCNjFbe2HE

How can I force Firefox to stop doing this? Thanks!

If I have a video running in Youtube and I decide to put the computer to sleep the following happens when I revive the session:

Firefox - the video will be running but without sound. Stopping and starting the video makes no difference - the only way to get sound is to reload the page which means the video goes back to the start.

MS Edge by contrast (under exactly the same circumstances) presents a page where the video has stopped but when I click on "play" the video resumes complete with sound. To me this makes much more sense but I do not want to use Edge!

I wonder if there is a setting I could adjust in Firefox to address this issue.

Thanks.

Greetings! Each and every time I close out Firefox, it deletes my pop-up approved exceptions list. There are two sites I visit regularly that use pop-up windows for displaying information, and if I add them to the exceptions list, they are gone (along with any others) the next time I open Firefox. This doesn't seem like the type of thing that should get deleted with clear history on close settings. It is happening with version 80.0.1, and happened with the prior version. Any thoughts on what might be causing this and/or solutions would be most appreciated.

I live in the Netherlands but have both Firefox and Windows set to English-US as my default (and only) language in the settings. However, when I browse to some sites, I notice I'm redirected to the Dutch-language version of the page and usually the URL will have the /nl slug added to it, or /?lang=nl but I do not want that. It happens with Google, Adobe, and many other major ones.

I don't use a VPN so obviously my IP address is detected as being from NL but is there a way to force websites in Firefox to only display in English? It even happens if I go to amazon.com, I'm redirected to amazon.nl.
