Outlook.office.com not refreshing automatically anymore and requires browser refresh to show new e-mails, etc... Works in Edge and Chrome just fine. Had this issue years ago and issue self-resolved, so unsure what resolution was then.

I am unable to login to a single microsoft service on firefox with my school account. It infinitely redirects to a different link and says "Sorry we're unable to sign you in" and I cannot even access the login page for microsoft office 365. I cleared all cookies and cache and even recreated my account 3 times and reinstalled fresh firefox 5 times. Nothing works.

Firefox must've updated because this worked fine yesterday(7/11/24) but now I get this error when I try to access Google's main page.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? google.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 antivirus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Webpages don't open on Firefox and a link is clicked (for example, a link in an email). This problem does not happen when using another browser. I followed the advice given to someone who had the same problem. Switching to "No proxy" as suggested did not correct the problem. The advice was from zeroknight and is pasted below: zeroknight 12/1/23, 1:28 AM more options The browser settings are in the menu that looks like three horizontal bars (≡). From there, go into Connection Settings and change "Use system proxy settings" to "No proxy".

Refreshing Firefox did not correct the problem

Every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling settings on its own.

Specifically 2 settings on the general tab keep enabling themselves in the "browsing" section, "Recommend extensions as you browse" and "Recommend features as you browse"

I have disabled these settings dozens of times now, and every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling these 2 settings on its own.

Just now I updated to v128.0 and these 2 settings turned themselves on again.

Why is Firefox not respecting my settings? Why is Firefox allowed to modify my settings without my permission?

I have deleted and reinstalled Firefox already. I don't use profiles and am not signed into the browser, so no settings are getting carried over that way.

I want the same behaviour in the URL bar drop down as the search bar drop down, meaning that when I click a search engine, it immediately searches with it instead of doing search suggestion queries. How can it be done in modern Firefox? The search bar should also have its own separate default search engine so you can immediately swap between 2 primary search engines without needing to select one from any drop down at all.
