Both Firefox and Google are throwing up their "Security Risk" webpage's whenever I try to get AnimalPlanet.com/pitbulls, animalplanet.com, Animalplanet.com etc. If your in the U.S. and reading this then you know what Animal Planet is and you've probably heard of Pitbulls and Parolees. I have the Channel on my computer currently through Discovery+ and am streaming the show, again. This link, the first one I listed, is supposed to take me to an "outtakes and extras" page and i figured maybe that one was broken but I should be able to get to Animal Planet's website without using Discovery+ and it certainly shouldn't keep telling its a Security Risk but no matter how i try the combination of just animal and planet it comes up??????

As the subject says, my download speeds are painfully slow (~200KB/s) and they have been for a while. My download speed is ~85Mbps and I use Ubuntu 20.04.

Installing a download manager extension only improved the speed to ~300KB/s (I tried Multithreaded Download Manager. I also tried increasing the number of threads in preferences to no effect).

The problem has persisted over time and across multiple restarts. This problem does not persist in other applications (Steam, for example).Neither disabling my VPN or running sudo UFW disable affected the speed (didn't restart because UFW disable doesn't require a restart [I think] and due to the above paragraph).

All solutions I have found have been related only to Windows users, hence why I am asking this even though there is a plethora of threads on this same issue. Any responses and help is appreciated!

Hi there!

Certain pages show up blank or completely black in Firefox. This occured since after I got a new iMac with the M1 chip.

All pages work fine in Safari and Chrome.

www.facebook.com and www.duolingo.com show up completely blank. www.pinterest.com is visible but does not work as intended.

These pages DO work in Private/Incognito mode.

I have cleared all browsing history and upgraded to Monterey and Firefox 94.0.2.

Several weeks ago, because it seemed to be a Gmail-tab-only problem, Firefox Support advised us to contact Gmail Support.

It is now clear that the problem is with the Firefox browser. The attached screenshot shows an example of an affected tab.

Please fix this. Multiple versions of the same tab waste RAM and other memory, especially on a limited-memory device such as a laptop.

Second pic using download button. There is some annoying fixed top menu appearing in the middle which blocks some of the content. ![screenshot download button2 .png|317x500](upload://mBzxui56Jznz5dxyAM71eP9TxrQ.jpeg)

Please make some download shortcut buttons or make Copy&Download&Cancel buttons float at the top.

Thank you

  • Sorry if the text contains grammar mistakes, Russian in store*

I right-click on a random link, button, image etc. but nothing is happened when I select "Open Link In New Tab", "Open Link In New Window" or "Open Link In Private Window". It works only if I use combination "Ctrl + left-click". Has anyone faced the same problem and know how it fix it?

I had a fellow from ebay talk me thought this ,this summer but i guessed i would not have the problem again .but i do now, So here goes , i click on a site that i visit once a day or so and now it no longer loads the page so that i can view it. There is a way to clean up things with out losing everything like my addons and bookmarks but i can not remember how we did it and i was hoping one of you guys will no.The last time it was that i could not see the photos on glass on each page and could not enlarge photos on that site, ,so those things wouldn't load up for me ,He told me how to clean up something and it did the trick right away. he had me go to a couple of places ,but my old memory just is not as good as it use to be. Thanks guys. oh it is my Instagram that will not load up. it goes to the page but nothing is there.

Long story short: Whenever I open Firefox, apparently a Russian search engine named 'Poshukach' hijacks my homepage and doesn't let me use google(Image attached). Now to solve this I scoured the Internet. I refreshed Firefox, ran malware scans and even re-installed windows. Still it doesn't go away. I installed Firefox in another device with the same account but to no avail. They while roaming through Firefox settings I noticed in the top that it says 'Your browser settings is managed by your organization' or something like that. So, I figured bad guys took control of my browser's settings disguising as my so called "organization" So, I need help from Firefox's end to solve this. Remove this Organization management stuff from my account. I want my control back. Otherwise, I am afraid I gotta stop using Firefox altogether due to privacy reasons

Dear Mozilla volunteer! I recently experience regular crashes of FireFox version 94.02 under MacOS Monterey. I have removed some add-ons and also "probleemoplossingsmodus" did not help. Furthermore I uploaded various crashreports.

Where can I find help to solve this problem? Or is MacOS 12.01 the culprit and do I have to wait for an update from Apple?

Thanks for tour reaction! Kind regards, Miel van Hutten The Netherlands
