After using messenger with no problems for years, yesterday I tried to make calls (audio/video) in messenger and keep getting an error message that my "brower" doen't support them now. I have the latest verion of Firefox 78.02. Anyone else experiencing this?

It asks me to use either Firefox (which I obviously have, or chrome).

I switched to chrome and got the same error message when trying to make a call as well.

Thanks for any help.

New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

I am using Firefox on a 2013 Macbook Pro running Yosemite 10.10.5. Every week or so Firefox closes on its own. I will be using Firefox all week and then return to find that Firefox has closed and I can't restore my session. There is no crash report. Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this to happen and what to do to prevent it? Is there a setting that I don't know about that limits session lengths? This does seem to happen at pretty regular intervals. It doesn't happen with other browsers or applications. Thanks.

The only way I am able to login into Bands in Town manager is through my facebook account (https://manager.bandsintown.com/login), but I am not able to through Firefox browser. I am able to do it through Safari Browser so it seems that it's something to do with the firefox browser. I restarted my computer and updated the firefox browser but it is still not working.

For years now FireFox has failed to fix the bug in their preferences that continues to open new links on top of old tabs - destroying what ever work was present there. This has been reported in every version for year and it is extremely irritating that FireFox does not address this time wasting and frustrating issue. Please fix this.

I want to know can someone hack Gmail accounts without logging in? I received mails from instagram that new login has been from new device with location from russia. another email few minutes after the first saying new login from iphone from bangladesh ,and third email that the password has been changed . The username which was mentioned is not created by me.someone used my email. also how does Instagram have my email address?As it might be I had a Instagram account which was created in 2019 and then deleted the app from my phone.I had only used it for few days. There is no direct complaint portal where such kind of incidents can be reported.all is automated which is dumb. I tried to complain but emails relies were to send a authenticated government ID which I should hold in my hands and send them a picture so they can authenticate and take action for the account. As I informed that the user ID is not the one which I have created why they should have my ID? but no response and same reply again. is there a dummy Instagram website?which we log in through the net instead of the app? is this a phising scam ? I changed the password and also put in new email address in the same account with the same username . I want to find out more and also alert those who might fall victim of such events. Please help if have more knowledge about it.

what is the logic behind the moronic popout address bar? why was the arrow button removed? was there perhaps a petition signed by millions asking for it? I don't remember seeing one. why was the option to disable it removed with the latest release? do you think we all want to use Firefox but feel like we're using Chrome? copying your competitor in order to attract its users isn't exactly the best USP. it serves no purpose whatsoever, and everything about it hurts the eye - the sparsed out list when you click on it, the fading edges, the whole white-blue mobile-on-desktop aesthetic, it's just hideous.

why can't this nonsense be made optional? if there are hordes of bored developers who need to justify their existence by fiddling with stuff that nobody complains about then fine, let them go at it, but make it optional for those of us who don't want to live by corporate diktat, and whose opnions and feedback you so profess to care about.

I despair, I really do. I've been using FF pretty much since it began, and if this isn't fixed with the next relase, I'm happy to wave goodbye, not that anyone cares, but there you have it.

So - if I'd already changed my password after those breaches were discovered, do I need to change it again?

Hi there,

My custom font (avenir) displays fine in all other browsers except Firefox. My site is: https://madebycircular.com.au/

Here is my code:

@font-face {

 font-family: 'avenir-book';
 font-weight: normal;
 src: url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.woff2') format('woff2'), /* Super Modern Browsers */
      url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.woff') format('woff'), /* Pretty Modern Browsers */
      url('fonts/avenir-book/avenir-book.ttf')  format('truetype'), /* Safari, Android, iOS */

}

I can't figure out what is wrong.

Thanks Clare

DNS over HTTPS results in Little Snitch prompting for permissions for unknown numeric IPs — how can a user make judgments about whether to connect?

I use Little Snitch as a firewall. It prompts for a yes/no on each connection that is about to be made. The only way I know of to make an informed decision in each case is to see the servers requesting a connection, of which there are many for each page request. When using DoH, these become numeric IP addresses, about which I know nothing, other than looking them up with Terminal nslookup, the first several of which turned out to be:

23.193.33.57 a23-193-33-57.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com. 172.217.7.4 lga25s56-in-f4.1e100.net. 4.7.217.172.in-addr.arpa namelga25s56-in-f4.1e100.net. 52.216.205.35 s3-1-w.amazonaws.com. 13.225.222.73 server-13-225-222-73.jfk51.r.cloudfront.net. 142.250.64.99 lga34s31-in-f3.1e100.net.

None of these was directly related to what I was trying to do, though cloudfront and akamai are frequent flyers. So I don't know if these were encrypted-DNS servers (though only cloudfront is supposed to be a default) or participant in the page I was attempting to reach.

This is clearly not a practical way to use a browser. It would appear that I will have to have DoH turned off in order to use the firewall. Is anyone else having this issue? Is there any other solution other than turning DoH off?

Thanks for any help.

I haven't been able to find the answer to this. The latest update (72.0.2 64 bit for Mac) destroyed my Top Sites. I have 3 rows X 8 (24 icons). It updated, and they were all changed, with about half missing, and filled in with other sites. I took the time to replace them as they were, but the next time I started FF they were gone again. I've disable any plugins that might have caused it (I haven't added any in a long time). How can I retrieve my original Top Sites the next time this happens? Also, why is this happening? Thanks. --john

Running FF (v70.0 64bit) on a MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro 13-inch, Late 2011) running Yosemite. I've experienced the browser display dropping the character y as shown in the attached screen captures from https://www.realestatewebtrainer.com/bookrecommendations.htm

Same phenomena has also happened on other sites, as well as dropping the y from pull-down selections in Ninja Forms. Appreciate any feedback you can offer.

I use a mac mini.

Firefox updated sometime today. Now it won't connect to Amazon - Really? I sell on Amazon. I need to work. I cannot take 2 hours to fix Firefox and I am not very well versed in trouble shooting.

It doesn't connect when I type in the address bar It doesn't connect from my bookmarks It doesn't connect when I google Amazon and try that link It doesn't connect with or without www.

If I don't find an answer that I can use quickly and easily, I will be going to Safari. I'm used to Firefox. It has been my go to for 15 years. This is ridiculous.
