Every time firefox updates I am unable to sign in to my bank's website. I go to MS Edge and can sign in normally. After a few days or weeks pass I will be able to sign in again with FF. This is the message I get when sign in fails:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://onlinebanking.huntington.com/pkmslogin.form" on this server. Reference #18.48a4c017.1664292875.2011dd39

What up with that?

Hello!

I would like to know which about:config preferences I have to modify to increase the speed of loading pages in Firefox?

I know that when I disable telemetry data, Firefox is saving a lot of time sending this telemetry data, which increases the speed.

In addition, I know that the loading speed will be increased when I modify some HTTP preferences, but which one.

Please give me a full list about all I can modify to increase the speed.

I updated my Firefox today and now videos do not play.

I had this problem back in April after an update and I spent weeks troubleshooting it. Eventually I got it to work after trying all of the following (then, and again now):

Things I've Tried: 1.) Clearing data (cache and cookies) 2.) Turning off "Strict Mode" 3.) Running CCleaner 4.) Disabling/enabling HW acceleration 5.) Checking that the DRM box is checked (and trying it without it checked) 6.) Refreshing Firefox 7.) Uninstalling/Reinstalling 8.) Updating my Windows install 9.) Updating drivers 10.) Disabling all Firefox extensions 11.) Running without extensions 12.) Running in Firefox Troubleshooting Mode 13.) Running Windows in Safe Mode with Networking 14.) Running a fresh install of Firefox without signing in after deleting all traces of Firefox from my PC (including Program Data folders, registry entries, etc.)

What finally worked back in April was to dive into "about:config" and change "media.rdd-processenable" to "false".

That fix does not work this time around.

In the meantime I've been using Brave and having no issues. I've tried video playback in Chrome, Opera, and Edge on this computer with no issues. This playback problem is exclusive to Firefox.

Video playback still works just fine on my 4 home PCs running Windows 10 and Pop_OS (3 self-built, one Asus laptop) using this same build of Firefox.

Other/Rant: I suspect this is a Firefox/Windows 11 problem. Most likely this is not something I can fix myself, but it's incredibly frustrating since I'm buried deep in the Mozilla ecosystem and use it for work. I'd prefer not to have to swap between browsers just so I can watch videos; too many windows open on this tiny work laptop isn't fun to juggle. Basic video playback is the #1 thing I use my web browser for at both work and home so it'd be nice if this irritating, months-long, unacceptable issue were resolved. A modern browser that has video playback issues? What good is it then? What's most irritating is that it seems I'm the one of a very small number of users with this issue, since I see very little posted about it online.

I've been a Firefox user primarily for almost half a decade now - moved over from Chrome for privacy issues. Never had a problem until 4/22 of this year and considering it's still an issue 3 months later... it has me re-evaluating the reliability and my commitment to an otherwise amazing browser.

I'm developing an app on localhost. I make an HTTP query which returns the cookie "MyCookie" to be set to "1". When I look into "Network" tab, it all looks as expected. Cookie is received, set and then sent with another call. However it is not displayed in Storage Inspector. Even the "Manage data" panel shows that there are some cookies for the localhost. Why is "MyCookie" not displayed in the Storage Inspector? When I deployed my app it was properly displayed there.

I've been utilizing the security protocol app DUO for work purposes for the last year with Firefox, no issues. I just recently updated to 105.0.1 and received the following error message when my DUO was prompted:

  • "We're sorry, access is not allowed with Firefox due to security concerns." - with a sad face.

It then shows me a list of compatible browsers and FF being the only one not allowed to use the DUO authentication. I've attempted to clear my browsers cache, fire up FF once more only to arrive at the same messaging. I've uploaded a screenshot of what I ran into.

This has to be some sort of error as I've been utilizing FF and DUO together successfully with no issues over the last year.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

My work computer is behind a firewall that is a forward and reverse proxy. Firefox crashes fairly frequently but my work computer is not using and will not be using the forward proxy; that is for the web server. Therefore the crash reports so not get submitted. There is an error message: "There was a problem submitting your report." Is there another way to submit them?

Since September 23, 2022, I can't send mail in Gmail, add attachments to email, print email. I get constant error messages: "oops, the system has encountered a problem...error #2001 (or #2003 and occasionally other numbers.) "The conversation you requested is not available." "Check your connections."

Meantime, all other internet functions work fine: other sites open immediately and commands are followed instantly. This problem seems specific to Gmail and Google, which is also now periodically unresponsive. (But YouTube works fine.)

I have bypassed Firefox cache. I have cleared cache. I have downloaded and reinstalled Firefox. I have done a 'netsh winsock reset'.

I have downloaded Chrome, which I dislike -- and found that I have most of the same Gmail problems there.

Nothing has resolved this issue, which came out of the blue. I'm at my wits' end!

My OS is Windows 10 and I have a wired Ethernet connection to Verizon FIOS.

Help, please!

I am getting a 404 Not Found message on only one page of a gigantic web site (www.bowl.com). I go to this page 10 or 15 times a week--for almost 20 years--and have never had a problem. Bowl.com's IT department has no idea why. I have cleared my cache and history (many times over the last week or so), and nothing seems to work.

I can access this page with Edge, and with my smartphone and on other computers in my network (Firefox), but I have to access this page with my THIS computer.

Hello. All of a sudden i have been getting prompts just before completing gmail sign is asking if i want to switch to html or default.I chose default,tried to sign in again,and got this legacy version of gmail with messages being listed in html format which is brutal.What caused this ? how do i get it back to the way its always been? Whats going on with this,and why is this even happening? Its also saying i used a tablet or mobile device to sign in twice,and i dont ever do that. How can i get it back to the way its always been? Have tried googling all of this but it happens on its own,and sometimes it doesn,t after i sign out of the html ,and reboot,but its unpredictable,and its like stuff has been altered. Thankyou.

Before the new update of Firefox the drop-down menu would color itself a red color, if one of the options were already chosen. For example, if a webside had selectable options of answers in a drop down menu, and answer A already was selected, it's fillcolor/highlight would be red - ensuring the same options wouldn't be chosen multiple times.
