I visited a website that allows you to download youtube videos.

Every time I click in the box to paste the URL or hit the submit button, I get a new tab open with a ad in it. Some times it is an ad for a porn site.

I tried using opendns to fix the problem. I have not gotten far enough with them yet, but I don't want to block sites.(like get a new window that says this site was blocked is NOT good enough..) I want to block any tab from opening in the first place, unless I deliberately choose to open a new tab myself..

Can you add a feature?

  • Do not let this site open tabs or new windows
  • Do not let this site open links to other sites.
  • Do not let this site do infinite page forwarding..(site you can't back out of)
  • Do not let sites force you to agree to (cookie terms extortion)

Thanks in advance...

Hi, The vams.cdc.gov portal is just showing a blank page, the cdc site says that firefox is a browser to use and also says chrome,safari etc. I need to get on the site because I have to register my mother for over 75 to get the vaccine. I have a phone modem and windows 7. Trying to download either of the other browsers is a long long long download. Anybody know the fix to getting this portal working. I noticed that it uses the Aura framework ie window.Aura By the way the page source is there, and the title bar does show VAMS Portal, just the blank page though. Thanks for helping if you can.

Hi there,

I'm building my first website. When I log in (jam-works.org/wp-admin) the very right end of the top bar in the 'dashboard' menu shows a blank, empty box where my avatar or pic or Gravatar or whatever should be ("1of2" below). The profile section from which to change this displays that same blank square with a link: "You can change your profile picture on Gravatar".

Which I've done. When I open jam-works.org/wp-admin with another browser, it displays the picture ("2of2" below), but I really don't want to use other browsers. I tried Firefox 'Options', 'Privacy & Security' and 'clear data', rebooted but no luck.

Can someone please help? I'm older than technology, so please type slowly so I can understand. Seriously. I just found out that an "Ethernet" isn't a thing to catch the Ether Bunny with, sooooo, yeah - please kinda spell it out for me if you can.

Thanks!

I am continuing to have issues going to this web site. www.goldtonemusicgroup.com/goldtone. Works great on chrome but firefox fails miserably. The page needs to be downsized and when you click on a link it may open it but it may be behind it but I am never able to get to it. I think possibly the last update something must have messed up. I used to be able to load it but not anymore. I have to use another browser to work with this web site. Other web sites seem to be ok. Thanks for any info.

Hello, I have a problem with the screen share pop up that appears when a website tries to access the screen. When I try to share the entire screen on Google Meet, as soon as I click Share screen > Full screen, the button grays out and nothing is shared. The pop up that allows you to select the screen to share never opens.

The only way to reset Meet's "Share screen" button is by exiting and joining the Google Meet room again. I've checked that meet.google.com's screen permission is set to "Always ask" and not "Blocked". How can I fix this problem?

Videos are all played with sound at once...

I have a website I built with ruby on rails with a bunch of posts where people can post images and videos. The videos are coded with :controls => true, :loop => true, :autoplay => true, muted: true, so they are playing as soon as the website is loaded on mute. The problem I have now is that when using firefox, ALL of the videos get played WITHOUT MUTE TOGETHER when the user goes to any other page. So whenever the user for example goes to the "about" page, the videos of the homepage are still playing on a loop with 100% volume and there is no way to stop it except for closing the website. This isnt really supporting for my user experience if you know what I mean.

What may also be worth mentioning is that I have a script which makes videos only play when on the user actually scrolled to their position.^

If you are interested in tinitus, you can try it out and listen to a concert of earrape videos (im not responsible for any braindamage). https://www.darkerr.co/posts This issue is not happening for Chrome, Safari or Edge. It must be something exclusively for firefox. Does anybody know how to fox this problem? Thank you so much!

Can anyone explain why every time I use Facebook & I go to a website that's on Facebook like an animal rescue, or say Bored Panda etc the site I visit seems to take Mozilla hostage & seizes it up not allowing it to accept my commands to do as I'm asking it to do. Such as, back out of the site I'm visiting & go back about my business. It happens every time & I have to pull up task manager in order to close out of Facebook & restart my computer & I lose any info in any other programs I may have left open etc. It's quite maddening. Thank you for any help, suggestions.

After the google outage a week ago I can't get into any google site. I asked a friend that also uses firefox and they can access them just fine, I can enter normally with other browsers, too.

Here's a transcript of the error page, if it helps:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.youtube.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.
