I have been using firefox for years and am very happy with it. I have a Dell optiplex 7010 desktop. I am running Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. I do not have a firewall turned on. Apparently, my desktop browser was updated to Firefox 78.0.1 (64-bit) on 7-1-2020. Since that time, I have been unable to access any websites from Firefox including mozilla.org. I am connected through WiFi. After downloading the Opera browser I have been able to access any website with no problems. I read community troubleshooting on this issue and tried various fixes including turning off IPv6. I read the community article about turning off my personal firewall. I was unaware of using any firewall so I installed Gufw Firewall 18.04.0. Running this program shows my firewall status is "OFF". I checked my AT&T modem and could not find any firewall settings that specifically mentioned Firefox. I would like to continue using Firefox since I use it on my phone and laptop also use it.

My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1520 running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 64 bit. It also accesses the internet through the same WiFi. It currently has no problems loading web sites with Firefox version 78.0.1

Please help.

I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.

PayPal checkout popup window loads indefinitely; cannot make a payment

When using the "Checkout with PayPal" button on websites the PayPal popup window appears however it's impossible to progress to the checkout.

When OneTouch is activated, the text 'Securely logging you in...' appears overlayed with the spinning wheel in the popup window. This continues indefinitely.

When this is not activated the window doesn't progress further after entering the email as prompted by the window and pressing Next.

It's possible to login to PayPal in a separate tab however that doesn't influence the popup behaviour.


Looking at the console in the popup there are a few 'Unable to find window by ref window.js:148:14' errors.

In the 'host' window where the popup was called from the console displays the 'Failed to execute ‘postMessage’ on ‘DOMWindow’: The target origin provided (‘https://www.paypal.com’) does not match the recipient window’s origin (‘https://www.paypal.com’).' error.


I believe this could be a recent issue because I was able to make several payments last month with all settings the same. I have a separate user.js file that I keep my settings in (I can send it over if required). These settings have not been changed since the file has been created.


The following actions have been tried and didn't improve the situation:

- refreshing the current profile

- disabling all addins

- adding paypal.com into exclusions for 'Block pop-up windows' and Enhanced Tracking Protection

- cleaning History and cookies


I then launched Firefox with a separate 'clean' profile and was able to make the payment successfully. Sure enough, importing my user.js file broke PayPal. I went through the settings commenting them out by groups.

The following setting was causing the issue:

user_pref("privacy.firstparty.isolate", true);

Setting it to 'false' made the PayPal popup window work correctly again.

Thought that this would be helpful for anyone experiencing similar issues. Cheers.

As of about a week ago I have been unable to connect to https://weather.com using Firefox 78.0.1 64bit on Windows 10 Pro. As far as I have found in my regular browsing this is the only website with this problem; other websites open properly. The problem with https://weather.com occurs no matter how I try to connect - selecting a bookmark that worked in the past or typing directly in the address bar. If I am using an empty blank window what I see is a window that remains blank. The name that I typed in shows in the address bar but there is no padlock icon and no trackers shield. I am attaching a screen shot.

If I open Firefox in a private window I AM able to connect to https://weather.com as I could before in the ordinary window. I am also able to connect to https://weather.com using other browsers.

Any suggestions as to what has happened and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated!

The drop-down menu for the address bar on my computer now has little pin images over the icons. I used to have 10 sites listed, but now there's just 8, and a couple of them are sites I don't use anymore, but I can't remove them; I highlight them and hit Shift-Delete, but they won't go away! I don't know what the new update did, but I want this fixed.

I am having a problem with creating a "workable" desktop shortcut for the Walmart grocery website. (I do not have problems with any other shortcuts I have created, only the Walmart website shortcut). The problem only began recently, as I have had a shortcut on my desktop for Walmart for months now. When the website locked up on me one day I deleted the original shortcut I had at that time, and I have tried many times since to create another one, but none will work. I am able to click and drag, from the Walmart website, to the desktop, to create the shortcut, however when I click on the shortcut to open it I only get a blank page. This is ONLY with the Walmart shortcut I create. What's going on, and why is this happening! It's infuriating!

I understand the newest version of Firefox offers support for WebP images, which is cool and great... but not when I need to download those images for use on my computer. As an artist I need to be able to save things as .jpg or .png for my art programs (or even preview) to be able to open them. Is there any way to make this an option, or to not default to webp when saving images?

I've also tried changing the extension on the file using the "all files" option but it just corrupts the file and won't open them.

I realize that there was a section on how to disable this. but if i were to go to Yahoo for example and scroll down a page with a video in it. It starts to auto play and be in a little view on the side and becomes really annoying as i don't want it playing or coming up like that.

Is there a method to fully disable it from auto starting "wasting bandwidth" and from being on the side like that?

FF Browser won't reflect changes made in html file

I am running a web site and just ran into a very disturbing problem. My code won't refresh in firefox browser, but do refresh in Google Chrome.

The thing is, I have added
tags in <body>tag and also added <script>tag in <head> tag.

When I load my page, it still displays the old html. I checked the source file in Chrome and yes, the source file is correct. However, the source file in Firefox still displays the old file(i.e. with no additional divs and script tags). The weird thing is that Network Monitor in Firefox developer tools shows status 200 for the html file, and headers in the details pane shows old info for "last modified file" in response Headers section.

I know refreshing browse setting, clearing cashes, openning the website with private browsing window, or newly reinstalling firefox browser, would solve the problem, but that is not what I want to know.

The difference between Firefox and Google Chrome:

Google Chrome instantly reflects the revised html file just after uploading a molified html file.

Firefox doesn't do that even if I close all tabs and quit firefox then reopen firefox and visit the webpage and repeat this processes multiple times.

My question is, how can I make it refresh the latest html file in users Firefox browsers, without asking users to refresh browser settings. I mean, how can I modify html code, htaccess code or anything to solve that issue?

Any ideas?
