I'm trying to access a website, but I keep receiving the same error message over and over saying "Access Denied". This is so strange since I had no problems accessing it at all yesterday. Can anyone help me?

There should be a screenshot of the error message below.

A while back, I accidentally clicked on "always block" in the popup when I received a notice of a potential cross-site script attack for a frequently visited site. Since then, whenever the site comes up in a search and i click on it, Firefox will not open it. Instead, I need to right-click, copy link, and paste in the address bar. I have tried to find information on how to undo this, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a list somewhere of blocked sites that I can unblock? Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Firefox keeps displaying '400 Bad Request Request Header Or Cookie Too Large' when trying to read articles on www.bloomberg.com.

It only happens when using this site and only on Firefox and not on Safari or Chrome.

How to fix this and be able to use Firefox as default browser for this site?

Via "about:config" the "signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled" option is enabled. I tested it on a fresh install on another machine just now, and it does add the "..." button - however, the option to import and export from file are completely absent - only the options to import from other browsers are available.

SEE SCREENSHOT

The option you can see in the screenshot, that was available until this week apparently, is no longer available after turning it on. I rely on this feature at my Job, when we image machines with logins for our users.

I need this basic functionality of all web-browsers or we'll have to switch to another one. We do not allow the users to Sync their accounts with FireFox/Lockwise, as we do not want the passwords being taken to other locations/pc's where they have signed to Firefox.

Please help - Thank you.

The first time I noticed the Megabar (I believe it was FF75) I absolutely hated everything about it and ruins the experience using Firefox. I am also not alone in this matter because as soon as the change was established, communities popped within hours to fix the problem. The old way of fixing this eyesore of an issue was the old about:config and changing around the settings then VIOLA! back to normal. Now after the update to 77, the Megabar is back and forced down everyone's throat and the old about:config is no longer the fix to this terrible experience. Literally after an hour of this trashbar being up, videos and guides popped up to try to fix it. Whole communities have been formed to hate this feature and ask Firefox to change it, or at least make it optional to go back. My question is, looking through google has only come up with the chrome.css(?) fix to this mess. Is there any way to change it back to the old url bar without having to go through the chrome.css fix or just uninstalling and reinstalling a previous Firefox or do I have to just migrate to another browser like Opera or Chromium?

Rant: Why did someone think it was a good idea to put a massive logo at the top of the home page ? It serves no practical purpose and it forces link icons down so you now have to scroll "!!"!! There's always ******* one isn't there !!? - someone with a crap idea who thinks the world needs to see it. How many hrs worldwide is going to be wasted today by people like me trying to undo this crud ? This isn't the first time some ignorant little ******* has forced their crap on firefox end users.

Original question, Why doesn't DarkReader add-on work on home page?

Answered with: Internal pages are protected from addons. But you can simply select the dark theme in ≡ -> Customize.

Possible reasons not to work:

  1. The poster was an alien
  2. 42 (See no. 1)
  3. Mozilla devs just hate us. When we (have to) come for answers here, from a comfortable dark web - whether using Dark Reader, or some other means - they purposefully BLAST us with bright white pages so that we will never, ever use Firefox again and uninstall it right away and move on to something else (less idiotic).
  4. Seriously, though, see the answer in context was an alien.

So, who can tell us how to get around this, please? We get it, whatever: support.mozilla.org is, somehow, a local page - or, something - and it can't be styled, but how do we get around this BLINDING WHITE LIGHT? Thank you so much.

^^ addons.about ("addons.about-scheme") can be styled, Library (Downloads) can, Options (about:preferences) can and also about:about and a bunch of abouts can, also - only this website is locked like this, to torture people, why...

EDIT: Screenshots attached illustrate that, as suggested in the first thread from years ago, Dark Theme had been applied and it makes no difference.

I have previously not had this issue, have had no problem viewing videos on this particular website. Recently I've had a raft of of issues (since the latest Firefox upgrade??). In this instance, the website is https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/ I am signed in as a member. Whenever I try to play a movie or TV show, I get this message:

Video Playback Error Sorry, we’ve encountered an error playing this video. If you have an ad blocker turned on, try turning it off or whitelisting our website before trying again. This may prevent you from loading videos.

I'm PC illiterate so I have no idea how to turn off an ad blocker (as well as Firefox being my browser, I have Quick Heal Anti-Tracker installed). Can someone please provide some help with REALLY BASIC instructions (ie. as if you're talking to an alien who has never used a computer before!). TIA

I also am unable to sign in to my YouTube account so I can watch videos I've subscribed to (I can view videos otherwise on YT). When I attempt to sign in, I get this image (below).

I have emptied cache, deleted browsing history etc, makes no difference. I can access and view SBS and YT on another browser, just not on Firefox.

I am writing to the English-language forum because the forum does not exist in my language. Some time ago, the browser started to slow down and took a long time to open. Last night I closed it through the task manager and after restarting the browser gave an error: XML parsing error: root element not found Address: chrome: //browser/content/browser.xhtml Line 1, character 1

(Ошибка синтаксического анализа XML: корневой элемент не найден Адрес: chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml Строка 1, символ 1) In my language

How to solve a problem? I don't want to lose bookmarks and other data, so creating a new profile is not a solution for me.

I have noticed that few websites are not running properly on my firefox.. Youtube being the most prominent since i use that a lot. Some times it disables click on links and other time it does not redirect to any other page. if i open the page in new tab it only works then. I have tried reinstalling the browser but it doesnt help. It could be related to some update maybe cause it works fine on my other machines.
