For the 2 weeks or so, I've been having an intermittent problem connecting to any Google services (Gmail, google.com, Google Calendar, Youtube). In gmail, it tells me that I'm offline or "Oops, error getting emails". If I browse to www.google.com, I just get a blank screen.

This seems to have coincided approximately with the release of Firefox 100, but I'm not totally sure it's related. If I clear all cookies and cache, that seems to resolve the problem temporarily, but it comes back. If I open a Private window or another container, that also seems to resolve the problem temporarily, but it comes back.

Other browsers work with no problem.

If I open a new container, it will work for a while, but eventually stop connecting. This doesn't happen with other websites. Only Google related websites.

I have tried doing a Firefox refresh, but that didn't resolve the problem.

At random, whenever use a search box on a page, Firefox will lock up. The "loading" icon on the tab will animate as normal, but the entire window won't respond. If I press the show desktop button and then try to reveal Firefox, none of the windows will appear. I'd have to go into Windows Task Manager and be lucky enough to terminate the correct process containing the tab, or else I'd have to start all over again.

no ryme or reason that i have found. not a continuous issue, works normal 3 hours, next minute boom takes off immediately to bottom, if i reverse direction action will stop, then i drag bar back upward where it took off. I have replaced batteries in mouse thinking low voltage, not this issue, on-screen cursor will stop/n start or to me acts like too many other background apps running using all bandwidth or ram = low batt voltage =replace batt problem solved. scrolling issue does seem to happen more often in overnight hours, hard to say definitively, MS is no help, after reading 9 pg. of community scrolling issues mine is diff. no issues of randomly, this has been happening for awhile 2yrs maybe more. its the random part that confuses me, i gone threw all mouse settings on/off n firefox, windows, HP, no fix, no error, very odd, i have changed wireless mouses, i dont think i've tried a corded one, after this i will, just gotta find it. HP laptop; Gear Head MPT3200RED mouse;HDMI cord to 42" Sanyo LED TV; ANKER USB w/4 xtra slots; I never touch laptop lid is closed all time, multiple screen switch on. Its very annoying only one indention roll of wheel, one line selected in win settings, mouse receiver plugged into laptop which is approximately 6 ft. away max. there will be days works perfectly normal, n then this evening started again, probly been week maybe, i'm gonna start keeping track of every factor i can think off date, time, website, tabs active, extension s on/active eg. just now tubi going threw my list which is very long page, 6 dvd picture lines down boom takes off just caught it around line 20 outta 150 lines maybe, heres thot, internet access threw verizon hotspot using tether hi speed cable connected to Galaxy S9, if web page not fully loaded thats when action starts, once it starts doesnt matter then random part kicks in, i can restart cpu, or disconnect S9 for minute , sometimes that helps, but not always. oh. i also use onscreen keyboard to type...suks...this Q has taken over hour to type as i click one letter at a time to spell words, my hand n index finger cramping. any thots you can think of wud be most appreciated , i'll do my best at documenting incidents , thnx vic

When I connect to my home router via HTTPS I get a popup with the message “Invalid Encryption Key”. I tried using other installations of Firefox and I don't get this pop up. I then made a new Firefox profile on the same computer and did not get the popup. So it seemed like a Firefox "refresh" would be in order. But after the refresh the problem persists.

So how do I resolve this issue?

Firefox is the latest version running on a Mac.

Fix Firefox 100.0.2 (64-bit) browser. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Version 21H2 OS Build: 19044.1706 Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 120-2212.4170.0

Let me give you a scenario.

I cleared my cookies.

Go to https://www.amazon.com. From the drop-down at the top of the page (it now shows All) select a product area. I selected "electronics". I now type in "batteries" in the search field. The screen goes black. The tab is now unresponsive.

Another example. Go to https://www.amazon.com. From the drop-down at the top of the page (it now shows All) select a product area. I selected "Kindle Store". Now I selected any book (I typed in "Killing th" and the drop-down showed "killing the illers bill oreilly. A small book shows up in the middle of the screen (which is now grayed out). I can select "orders" and the orders are shown but they are skewed in an abnormal fashion (i.e. not displayed as they were on the previous version of Firefox). I hit the back arrow and click on the small icon of the book displayed and I am on the page for that book. However scrolling down shows that the page is displayed in an abnormal fashion and I can no longer click on "orders" (nothing happens when I click on this drop-down.

I cannot order anything and I need to hit the back arrow to return to the previous page in order to log off of Amazon.com.

I use Firefox by choice. However my least two browsers in the world (Chrome and Edge) both sill work on Amazon.

I REALLY REALLY do not want to use those browsers for ordering on Amazon. Please fix Firefox. I like it more, believe it's more secure and I really prefer that browser. Please help me by fixing your browser.

One more thing: I just updated Firefox today. It worked fine yesterday..

I used to sign in to my credit card through Elan Financial Services and then I would highlight my credit card, tell it the date range I needed to update to Quicken, and hit enter. a popup would give me the option of opening the file or to save the quicken file to my computer. I would select the option to open the file and it would update my register on Quicken. Now, I only get the option to save the file to my computer. On Microsoft Edge, I still get the choice to open or save the file. Why doesn't Firefox support the Open Function anymore. I use Firefox for everything, but now I have to remember to switch to Edge for this one important update. Is this a change in Firefox or something I have to deal with Elan on?

As said in the title, both Firefox, Firefox DE and Chrome will open and crash/close instantly on my new Lenovo Legion PC with Windows 11 installed on it. Only Edge works, and so far I've tried a lot of solutions : -Restart PC -Uninstall, delete files and fresh install both programs -The MSCONFIG thing and unchecking start programs -Every update Windows update recommended me -Entire new windows install, without any linking with my previous pc (which had the same problem two times already, both fixed by returning to a previous version of windows)

I believed it was a ram problem with my previous pc because it was old, but this one is completely new and has the same problem, while there's nothing except my microsoft account that is common to both PCs

I'm completely lost, help me please (writing this on another PC)

I have 2 questions after the upgrade ( If that is what they call it). #1. Getting all my apps re-setup , I noticed that some were not showing up on the bar to the right of my search bar. #2. When I open FF it only opens with a half page on the left. This next jusy a polite general question. After the uproar about fvd suspension, why did FF feel the need to do it again? What I mean is why did they wipe out All my apps and deleted other programs I had BOUGHT and now having trouble getting downloaded again when they were working perfectly before 100? Are these programs also considered "Dangerous". Sorry. Could you give me an approved FF alternative to FVD and I don't mean this piece of garbage that is on your web page. You wanna throw something against the screen every time you look at it.; UGLY!!!!

Hi Since I guess Firefox 99 - not sure ... and now in Firefox 100.0.2 CTRL + Z and CTRL + Y not working when editing in Word Press ...

It is so annoying and make you loose data and waste a lot of time.

I cannot keep saving data all the time - yes I know Word Press has its own data saving etc.

I am talking about a 'normal' operation as CTRL + Z and Y !

I am a keyboard user since the 90s (!) and use loads of shortcuts fast and makes me waste hours sometime.

Any tips, maybe in the About:config settings?

Thank you M

When I search "translate" into the address bar the first option is www.translate.com instead of just searching it on google (which is what I normally do).

I would like to be able to type "translate" and have the google results show up first. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi! First of all, I'd like to congratulate the community on the 100th edition of Firefox.

The subject was selected as "other" because it is not a failure or problem, but a suggestion for improvement related to the information on the volume of cookies and website and cache data stored on disk.

It's been a while since I noticed this and now I present it in writing asking whether or not it is feasible to implement the suggestion below.

In Settings / Privacy and security / Cookies and website data, the amount of “bytes” stored taking up disk space appears.

According to the detailed description on the subject, available at the address

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox

there is a screen copy illustrating the explanations, for example:

Cookies and website data Your stored cookies, website data and cache are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space. know more

That's the point: "Your cookies, website data and cache stored are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space"

However, this information freezes when reaching 1.0GB.

The exact question: could this information be shown beyond the conditioned threshold until the user decides to clear all data?

Without further ado, I thank you in advance for your attention and, as far as possible, I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely, Ricardo Pinto. Basic Firefox User in Brazil
