Currently running Firefox 72.0.2 on Windows 7 Desktop PC. Believe these problems were caused by the ‘Enhanced Tracking Protection’ (ETP) feature, but no matter what remedy I follow on FF support, I cannot cure the problem. (1) Problem seem to be common to both Ancestry & Facebook websites & relates to viewing messages which use a (pop-up/fly-out?) window. Ancestry’s support solution was to install chrome & so far Facebook support has not responded. I can work around this by using my chrome laptop to read & reply to messages on both websites, but this is a real pain since all this worked fine on FF before.

(2) AVG has the same problem populating (pop-up/fly-out?) window for ‘performance issues’. Obviously I cannot use another PC or laptop to check this out, so I am stuck.

All suggestions welcomed, but note I am a novice at all this, so please be gentle!! Cheers, Mickey. P.S. I have more info, but this is all a bit overwhelming & so I won't add it at moment

When I updated from an old version of Firefox it erased all my bookmarks and there is nothing in 'Options' that allows you to designate current page as your opening page. And their incessant reminder to update is maddening! That's what got me into this predicament in the first place. I finally succumbed and I, like so many others are ever so sorry I did. I tried many searches to try to reinstall an older version of Firefox but all failed. They just end up reloading the updated version before you can open it. It sucks! If I can't load an older version like Firefox 71 I might as well get a new browser since I'm going to have to spend hours replacing my bookmarks and other stuff erased by the update. I won't use Firefox anymore and I won't use Google Chrome. I also noticed in other Firefox Support questions that people who were having problems with Firefox were asking for suggestions for alternatives to Firefox and nobody seemed to want to suggest any but I'll ask anyway. I just want a simple light weight browser that doesn't have all the whistles and bells that take up so much memory and I wouldn't use anyway. I don't do games and I don't do social media. After having used Firefox for many years I feel they have failed me leaving me with only 2 choices of either using their new version which I'm unlikely do or finding an alternative browser which I probably will. I would like some suggestions on alternative web browsers with user's experiences. And I'm using Windows 7. I have Windows 10 in another computer but found it to much too intense so I don't use it.

Will it be OK to upgrade my Firefox browser from Rel 72 to latest Rel 100 in one step ? OS is Mac OS X Monterrey 12.3..1 Or should I do 1 or more intermediate upgrades to be safe ?

FWIW, I've had enough problems upgrading from OSx Mojave to Monterrey. I am leery of the huge jump from FF 72 to 100.

All advice most welcome.

I got the notification recommend me to refresh my firefox at the bottom, which only states that it will make my firefox run faster. But it didn't mention it will delete all my add-ons, reset my layouts, mess up my about:config settings. Which lead to unwanted automatic update download and installation. This is completely BS.

Hi Everyone,

I run Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 and Firefox version 72.0.2, with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials and search engine, and New Tab version 1 by Leigh Brenecki.

All works well, other than, having opened Firefox with the first "Tab" available, when I click the "+" sign for a New Tab, the error message "Blocked by Content Security Policy" and "An error occurred during a connection to duckduckgo.com" is displayed.

However, if I click on the Firefox Home Page "House" icon, or select any of my Bookmarks Toolbar icons, the message goes away and all works well again -- at least until I try opening another New Tab when the cycle starts again.

I realise this might be a "New Tab" or "DuckDuckGo" problem, and will seek their support accordingly - I just wondered if anyone on here had experienced the same?

Thank you,

Ian

Hi Everyone, When I try to access a particular website, there is no real graphical display - simply text scattered everywhere.

I visit loads of different sites each day, and this is the only one where this problem occurs.

The website Owner thinks it might be something to do with a CSS file(?) but, as I do not have the problem elsewhere, I am unsure.

If anyone can help on this, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.

Ian
