I am trying to check in-store stock of an item on a website. When I click to check stock it opens another page but the only thing on the page is the browser frame with the word "safe" in the upper left corner. The links work on all my other browsers. I have used troubleshooting mode and refreshed Firefox but it continues to happen.

Just recently started using Firefox and Duckduckgo. Suddenly any attempt to use my credit card to charge anything I cannot click on the icon, or enter CC info. Very strange. Same is true for Shopify although Shopify does send me a verification code. Only thing that works is PayPal. Annoying.

I am trying to 'fork' my FF, duplicating my profile on to a stick, then modify each one so that my work related bookmarks, saved passwords, cookies, history etc are in one profile, and my social/general bookmarks, cookies, passwords etc are in the other. I have done this and using about:profiles can open the non-default (USB stick) profile in a new window, or set the non default profile as default, close, re-open FF into the alternate profile. All good so far. However this isnt working quite as I expected. If I switch to alternate profile, save a bookmark to the shortcut bar, then switch back to the other profile then after a second or two the bookmark I saved in the other profile appears on the shortcut bar?!? This happens whether I have opened alt profile in a new window, or have changed the default profile and restarted FF into the other profile. Is this because in both instances it is using the same local directory? The doesnt seem to be an option to choose a different local directory for the alt profile. This would be ideal if possible as it would ensure that there are no data crumbs left on my PC when using the USB stick profile which is important for my work security. Any help really appreciated.

For over a decade I've used FF, and when I download things (99% of the time from Yahoo) I set FF to "always ask" what to do with downloads. Suddenly that changed and it started downloading everything automatically to the Download Folder.

I went to options and changed everything back to "always ask."

FF does always ask... but... it ALSO still auto downloads to the Downloads Folder now.

And I can't figure out how to stop that.

Any help is appreciated.

When I download a file before I even have a chance to save or open the file Firefox downloads the file and puts it on my desktop. I have to look at lots of .pdf files and this a bit annoying as I have to keep deleting all the files I dont want. The dialog box opens and I always choose open rather than save but Firefox has already saved a copy to my desktop. How can I stop this autosave please ? Cheers.

I am operating in macOS 10.13.6 [the latest my iMAC will accept] using Firefox, and MSN.COM's Outlook E-Mail client. Usually when you "hover" over the e-mail sender's name in "FROM", their URL is produced -- very useful to check for spoofing of legitimate sites. This week I've received several e-mails where this did not work. Is this a new spam tactic, and are there any solutions ? Any thoughts ??

Thanks for your help and be well, John

Error message says: "HTTPS not available on this site" Choices: : "Go back" or "Continue to HTTP only site". If I choose "Continue to HTTP site", the address bar shows that the address is indeed HTTPS! Have I been hacked? Do I have a virus? I can find no help elsewhere. I have saved the error message but, using your "Browse" below will not show it in my documents.

Meu navegador Firefox, demonstra uma linha de seleção de textos (idêntico ao de edição de texto, como um bloco de notas) toda vez que eu clico em algum elemento da página, seja texto ou imagem. A linha não altera nada nas páginas, porém me confundem muito e acabam por incomodar meu acesso á paginas e me fazendo ter que usar outros navegadores por conta disto.

Dear Support,

I am running FireFox v103.0.1 on Windows 10 64 bit system. I am using Windscribe VPN service. I never had any issue logging into Gmail using this extension prior to the latest FF update.

I was able to login to my Gmail account on 2 Aug 2022. When I updated to the latest version of FireFox I kept receiving the following message. (see attached screenshot).

I have tried all advice on the Help Forums. I have even tried restoring my system to a previous restore point. Nothing has helped.

Please let me know what else I can try to remedy this issue.

Hello,

I am running FF v103.0.1 on a Windows 10 laptop (with latest OS update installed). I am using Windscribe VPN. I have never had an issue logging into Gmail until the latest FF update.

When I try to login to Gmail I keep getting Your browser is not secure when I try to login to Gmail using FF v103.0.1. I followed the advice given to another user with the same issue. I put FF into troubleshoot mode. Login issue was resolved. I know I can't run FF in this manner all the time.

Can anyone please tell me how to fix the Gmail login issue I'm experiencing? Please let me know. Thank you.

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Some wanted emails sent to me are not being received, ie Bank Alerts for instance. But receive a hundred unwanted spam daily in Junk. In the past the emails that were not received thru Hotmail were resent and received to my Gmail address. If this condition can not be corrected I'll be forced to use Gmail and discontinue Hotmail.

Can any one give me a clue?
