Every time I search something on a certain website I get a pop up that says: "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave — information you’ve entered may not be saved." This has only started happening since Firefox updated and it's very annoying. I use the website for work so I don't want to stop every ten minutes to click leave page.

I use the following crossword site:

https://thenewdaily.com.au/puzzles/quiz-crossword/

When I open it with Firefox, including the latest version, the "Help" icons are replaced by mathematical symbols. If I use Microsoft Edge, the Help icons are there.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Firefox updated to version 89 last night and since then I cannot properly view certain websites I use regularly such as BBC news and Vimeo (have uploaded pic to show). I have restarted computer, and turned off hardware acceleration and cleared cache and cookies - these don't help. If I start in safe mode it's all fine - I've disabled any extensions and themes and tried again but the problem is still there. All was fine before the update. Not sure what to do next.

Hello there,

So, my issue is that some websites, only on Firefox, are logging me out as soon as I enter my mail + PW.

Those are the right ones for sure, and I tried in Troubleshoot mode to see if the issue persists, and it does.

Hence my request here, did someone encounter the same problem and managed to fix it? If you have any idea about what's worth trying, I'm all ears.

Is this a FireFox muck up or what?

For the first time after 10 years, I can no longer access my PNC bank account using Firefox V84.0.2. This problem started just this Sunday Jan 24, 2021. I am using AVG and the Defender firewall. When I try to enter my account PNC tells me that it cannot find the code and tells me to use another browser like Chrome or Internet Explorer which I don't want to do. PNC tell me to contact Firefox as, "It is not their problem." But so far I have found nothing in Firefox to solve the issue whatever is causing it. I need help as I would rather not change browsers.

I have restarted my PC, checked and restarted AVG, checked the troubleshooting program, and reinstalled Firefox, but nothing seems to correct the problem. So where do I go from here?

On my iMac M1 running Big Sur 11.4, Firefox 88.0.1 often does not load a link or flashes info but then shows a blank page. The problem is more frequent when moving between pages—most Google News sites work, for example, but secondary sites often do not. I've tried relaunching FF, turning off all Add-ons and turning off all Add-ons and relaunching. Even restarting the computer. No change. The pages work on Chrome and Safari. My temporary (I hope) solution is to use another browser but I LIKE Firefox.

My firefox is up to date. I have not added any new add-ons, and the ones I had before, I had no issues with. Recently when I open my firefox, none of the webpages open. I thought it was my connection but after trying a different browser, everything opens fine. I ran it in troubleshoot mode and the webpages open fine, but not when I go back to normal mode. I cleared out my cookie and cache, but that didn't resolve the issue.

Any ideas what is causing this?

Hello,

What is the setting to DISABLE thumbnails in Google search results, or ANY search engines? I have the opposite problem of most users here LOL.

I do NOT want to see thumbnails on any search results from any search engines. The closest solution I've found on these forums from back in 2013 no longer works (see below):

Do you mean the thumbnails that you see on the about:newtab page?

You can create these Boolean prefs on the about:config page to prevent Firefox from generating thumbnails for the about:newtab page.

  name: browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled with value: true
  name: pageThumbs.enabled with value: false 

You can right-click on the about:config page to open the right-click context menu and choose New > Boolean to create both prefs as a new Boolean type pref.

  http://kb.mozillazine.org/about:config 

You need to delete the thumbnails folder in the Firefox profile folder to remove already stored web page thumbnails."


Thanks in advance for the assist! :-)

I have put blockers in place (Layer 7 Firewall Rules, DNS dummy zones, etc.) yet facebook.com is still accessible from my Mozilla Firefox browser. How do I tell Firefox to use DNS like it's supposed to instead of some secret back-door into this Social Marketing rubbish? Microsoft Edge works just fine. I've not tried nor do I intend to use Google Chrome so that browser is not an issue. Just Firefox.

Is there some cache I need to clear in the infinite number of inane Firefox settings.

I would like to keep using Firefox if I can just tell it to do what I tell it. Uninstalling Firefox is killing a fly with a sledgehammer; and I don't want to do that.

Please help.
