FF79 x64 Win7 NoScript, Ublock Origin A financial website I use has suddenly stopped working for me. It will reject my logins as if I had entered them incorrectly. Sometimes it works after the 3rd try, but no longer. After multiple failures an authentication dialog will appear, but that also fails when proper codes are entered. I always use a private window for this site, and Noscript, Ublock Origin are not enabled for private windows. Explicitly disabling these addons does not fix the issue. I have no problem when I try the ancient IE I still have.

The institution has told me that FF users have been having issues. I tried clearing cache,cookies and history, and this allowed me to logon exactly one time. I am hoping the fix is a simple setting change. The suggestion to use FF safe mode is not a real solution. Are private windows not appropriate for these types of websites?

I've been having frequent trouble starting Firefox for the past month or so.

Sometimes I get the Windows error message that Firefox crashed and asks me to restart, check for problems, or debug the application.

Sometimes Firefox will open on a "New Tab" and fail to load my default home page (http://localhost/default.html). A dot on the left side of the tab cycles back and forth continually.

I'm using Windows 7 Home Edition with IIS installed.

Thank you.

Firefox Popup Warned of Possible Nefarious Content/Malware From Unknown Sites To DuckDuckGo. Four choices presented: ALLOW ONCE; ALWAYS BLOCK; BLOCK ONCE; ALWAYS ALLOW. I chose ALWAYS BLOCK. This has apparently blocked/disallowed any DuckDuckGo search, which is stillborn - i.e., ANY DuckDuckGo search via Firefox will dead-end, 'with prejudice,' i.e., no further opportunity to STOP or REFRESH the page/website. Where do I go to fix/reverse this - for example, where is this choice now stored, so that I can change/modify/abort it/restore DuckDuckGo search functionality. I have uninstalled/re-installed the DuckDuckGo add-on with no effect/success/no change in behavior. Thank you.

I do not have this problem when using Chrome or Edge.

How do i get sound to the TV?

When I try to print articles from the internet I get the following message "An error occured while printing. I have a Brother printer and checking with their tech. dept. and they said the problem was not with them or my computer. The problem was with my browser. They came to that conclusion after they suggested I use another browser. I did that using Microsoft Explorer and the printer did print OK.

I have been a Little Snitch user for years. Having seen all the bulls**t that apps and website try to connect to behind the scenes I couldnt possibly live without it.

Since the most recent update Firefox has broken how Snitch should, and used to, work. Instead of alerts displaying said website trying to connect to said web server/service, I get only an IP address. This requires a click on the more info button to see what the reverse IP look up is. Occasionally this is blank. Either way its a cumbersome way to browse the web. Especially when it used to work, and continues to work in other browsers.

Anyone else get this behaviour? Anyone have an idea how to fix/reverse it?

Cheers Adam

I recently newly configured a laptop and while doing so, installed an updated version of FF (v 79).

I realized that some of my old Add-ons from my backed up FF profile (last used with FF v. 68) were interfering with the new FF installation, so by toggling off sync of Add-ons using about:config (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox ), I was able to open the newly installed FF and successfully use it with my backed up profile without introducing the older synced Add-ons.

The problem: So currently, in my newly restored, working FF profile, I have Add-Ons unchecked in syncing, to ensure that the Add-Ons from my previous FF incarnation would not conflict with this new install.

However, I am concerned that at some future point I might forget why I had disabled Add-ons in sync, and that if I check it and do a sync, it might re-introduce the old Add-ons.

So what I want to do now is to delete all the old Add-ons (essentially from the Sync server) . . . if they are still there -- so that if I want to check Add-ons to be synced with my new FF installation, it won't re-introduce those incompatible older add-ons.

What is the safest way to do this?

Would it work if I did the following?

- Open FF (my current working restored profile) -- but open it in Safe Mode. - check Add-ons in sync - allow sync - if the Add-ons show up, delete them

I have used Firefox since before it was called Firefox. For the last 3 years I have been using it without problem on my 2017 iMac 27". Suddenly a few days ago I started getting this a message 'The application “Firefox.app” can’t be opened.' I have uninstalled, including removing all folders and files containing Firefox or Mozilla and reinstalled versions 75.0b9, 79.0 and 80.ob5. None of which worked. None will open in safe mode. However, if I boot my computer in safe mode, it works. Return to standard mode and nothing. I have followed every suggestion I can find on Firefox's site and Apple's site. It just plain doesn't work. I love Firefox, hate Safari and tolerate Chrome. I would appreciate some help.

Reddit page becomes slow to react and even unresponsive if you scroll down enough to load approximately 400 posts. Reddit video player stops responding first (takes seconds to respond), then page begins to render with delay (scrolling, hovering over stuff still responsive though). Firefox Screenshots start to crash if you try to open them and context menu (on page) can take seconds to open.

Here's profiler data (with extensions) https://share.firefox.dev/2DXFYnD

Reproducable even with clean profile, it just takes more posts to load to see this. (but at 500 posts you can see that video player can react slowly). Other websites with infinite pages (like VK or Twitter) are working well

My windows 10 laptop setup is an external 1920x1080 at 100% zoom and the laptop screen set-up as secondary, at 2560x1440 scaled at 150%.

Firefox (79.0 (64-bit)) works fine on the primary (unscaled) display, but on the scaled display all the drop-down menus (extension, but also hamburger from firefox) are too small, and the contents are either not entirely visible (typically for the extensions) or need a scrollbar (like the main firefox menu).

I tried to run firefox with extensions disabled but the problem persists.

I think this is a Firefox bug. Is it true and if so, how do I report it?

I've discovered a bug in the interaction of Firefox and PayPal. PayPal claims it's a Firefox problem.

I've run into this making donations to two different non-profits.

1) I fill in the information on the non-profit website and click the Donate via PayPal button. 2) That brings me to a form where I choose how to pay (see PayPal1.JPG). I choose "Donate with a Debit or Credit Card." 3) I start filling in data. At some points, Firefox's Autofill pops up, as in PayPal2.JPG. Note that as I move through the Autofill list, the Country/Region dropdown switches to Panama. None of my addresses have Panama as the country. 4) When I make a selection from the Autofill list, I get a "processing" icon and when it's done, the data I've entered has been removed and the Country/Region is set to "Panama" (see PayPal3.JPG) and a cannot change it back to United states. At that point, I have to close the tab and start over and remember not to use Autofill.

As I said, PayPal says it's not their bug, and that it doesn't happen in other browsers. (I haven't tried.)
