Firefox updates use the term MSI, but never do you explain what that means. Come on guys step around the counter and act like a user. Not only what does it mean, but what are the differences between MSI and the download without MSI?

The update Firefox 100.0.1 ( or 2 ) has a bug: Firefox doesn't "see" the Fritz!Powerline ( LAN over Powerline adaptors ) and thus I can't enter the Fritz!Box. Even typing the IP address of the Fritz!Box doesn't help, because there is "no connecting" beyond the PC. The hardware works, so I can send and receive emails, but I can't access the internet via the firfox browser. Stepping back to 99.0.1, I had to "create a new profile" and all my previous ( before the update to 100.0.1 ) settings were lost, all bookmarks vanished ... I am rather angry, you know? This mail I'm sending via my notebook, as I this connects via 100 Mbit Lan network from an other room and as I had to "register" just to be able to complain ...

So, here's how CenturyLink responded to my recent "cry for help" (as Rick Astley sang . . .).

I am sorry to hear of the issues you faced trying to find an email address for CenturyLink. There is a known issue with Firefox not working with our website. The best way to access our website is by using Google Chrome and making sure the pop up blockers are not activated. Unfortunately, as the issue is with the Firefox browser, there is nothing we can do to fix that issue.

Well, guess it's time . . . after all these years . . . to rethink my interest in Firefox, eh?

I had issues with Firefox and reinstalled it. My monitor was cracked so bought a new monitor. Now web pages don't load properly. If on a message board or looking at emails, lines separating each post or email are missing. This happens throughout the web. separating lines, boxes are missing. It's like 90% of the page loads and then some parts don't. I've tried all the troubleshooting answers from Mozilla. Nothing works. Never had this issue for years of using Firefox. All of a sudden, web pages all look different. It can't be the monitor because the computer tells the monitor what to display. So something must have changed when I reinstalled Firefox. I've added a picture below of how the Ticketmaster page loads. It would always show each individual seat. Now most of the empty seats have disappeared along with the line separating each row. Makes it almost impossible to decipher the webpage. The blue dots are seats still for sale. The empty rows should also have dots representing each and every seat, but now only about 50% of the seats actually display. Anyone have any ideas on what is going wrong? Driving me absolutely crazy. Ruined my ability to surf the web. Every page is missing something. Usually separating lines. Any ideas?

One part of the article I read says the connection issue is due to HTTP, another part of the Article says it is Googles fault due to their HSTS security policy. I have to say Poppycock. I can successfully login to my Gmail on my tablet I just cannot connect to it with my laptop. Firefox itself is refusing to allow the connection. Unfortunately it happens more often than you'd expect. I am in no way or by any means capable of computer repair, but I seem to enjoy tormenting myself with constantly taking apart and rebuildingthis laptop, Took me almost 3 months to finally find out how to stop Firefox address URL bar from highjacking the search bar with that really annoying awesomebar in about:config. But something just seems wrong with the browser on the laptop not being able to connect, but there is no issue with the tablet.

Thank you for any advice or solution that could help me with this. Ive thought about the firefox refresh reset option instead of uninstall reinstall, but if there is a better solution

My software router isn't configured with a certificate so when I log in to router settings via its webGUI using my local domain IP address 192.168.*.* I get and accept the insecure message and can edit the router settings. However when I save the router configuration to my hard drive I get the file name placeholder with zero bytes. Obviously that's bad news if you go back to the XML file and find zero bytes. I tried adding 192.168.*.* to FF site exceptions. That gets the Webgui past the warning messages but the XML backup file the router wants to save is still zero bytes. This doesn't happen with Chrome.

What can I do?

Thanks

Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 7

The second tab does not close when I click the X.

The first, third, and subsequent tabs do close by clicking the X.

I can close the second tab either by right-clicking it and selecting "Close tab" or by right-clicking the first tab and selecting "Close multiple tabs > Close tabs to the right"

It's annoying, but not a deal breaker.

Hi, Using Windows 7(32bit), Firefox v101.0.1 (32bit) most updated at this time. Some days before the URL "https://web.whatsapp.com" was just working fine with Firefox (can be seen as bookmark in screenshot), but today it stopped loading at all. No error message, no QR code, nothing, only a deep silence. As a way to troubleshoot the problem, I tries to disable Avast, connect to a VPN etc. but with no luck. I thought it might be a problem with the site so decided to give a try to another browser. Downloaded and installed the Chrome and the required page is just fine in Chrome. Don't know why it's no loading in Firefox. No linked devices there on my mobile phone, so have to link my PC as a new device, but no QR code to scan. Firefox is my favorite and default browser for a long time and I don't want to lose it anyway. Please help. Thanks.

Hello.

When I visit Marketwatch* on Firefox in full screen mode on Windows machine, there is a huge gap of blank space on the page and I have to scroll dwn a long way to read the rest of the page. It's like the columnar data is being stacked on the page and not dsplayed side-by-side, as it should be. This doesn't happen in Brave, Chrome, Iron, or MS browsers. On those browsers, the information is placed correctly side-by-side, and not stacked above or below each other on the page. (i say "columnar" to describe issue appearance, not as a known refernce to the cause of the issue.)

PROBLEM FIREFOX:

                            column 2 data
                            column 2 data
                            column 2 data

column 1 data column 1 data column 1 data column 1 data

CORRECT BROWSER DISPLAY: column 1 data column 2 data column 1 data column 2 data column 1 data column 2 data column 1 data

The work-around is minimizing Firefox just slightly smaller than full screen, and all of the page items appear where they should on the page. I'm using other browsers because of this. thx, rick

  • BTW, I don't benefit in any way from mentioning this website with this issue; it's sincerely a probelm with this website that I use frequently.

So, I've migrated from Chrome to Firefox, and it's great, but I have a couple of issues now. One of them is with web push notifications from Google. First, I had an issue with notifications not showing up at all (or maybe they do show up, but the timeout is short and I miss them), but I've solved that with this in about:config set to tru:

dom.webnotifications.requireinteraction.enabled

Now, notifications do stay on until I click them, but when I click them, all they do is close, disappear. And I'm talking only about YouTube notifications, when I get them from other websites, they work fine, I click on them and the proper link opens.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Hello, this did not happen in past. Tonight Gmail again says "not connected" with a countdown. When looking at the Network tool I can see that each POST request ends with NS_BINDING_ABORTED error code. It seems that those requests are aborted before a single packet is sent over network. Is there any permanent solution? Last time I got around the problem by restarting the browser. But I am not happy to do that over and over again because the Firefox is bugged.

(Windows-7/32 bit) I'm using the left sidebar to display my bookmarks. The last few FireFox updates have caused a problem (currently running 101.0.1 but have noticed the problem with previous versions). Unpredictably, when changing web pages, the bookmarks menu just rolls up for no apparent reason. Hitting CTRL-B/CTRL-B restores it, but it's also an annoyance, it does it several times a day. Why does it do that at all? Anyone have any ideas?
