During an online transaction I get into a loop where Firefox reports "Firefox prevented this page from reloading automatically". I respond with Allow but the situation repeats. I have changed the settings to standard for this particular website, but the problem persists and appears to be the reason that the transaction eventually fails. What other settings or adjustments do I need to make to allow Firefox to automatically reload a page on a trusted site?

Up until the latest updates a week or two ago, UPS tracking worked fine. However, with version 100.x, UPS stopped working. All is get is the error message, "We are unable to complete your tracking request at this time. Please try again later.". I tried other older tracking numbers that I know are good, and the same error. However, UPS tracking using Chrome or Explorer/Edge works fine.

I could blame UPS, but both Chrome and Explorer/Edge does work.

Apparently, Firefox is sending a (buggy) request that UPS doesn't like.

Thanks, Bill

I once found a live bug opened for this, but I don't find it anymore.

The spell checking dictionary, as many pointed out, is horrible. It lacks tons of common words, as well as commonly used tech,internet, you name it - jargon words.

Is there (there should be) a repository to add missing words? Through my usage I add words to my private dictionary. Would be shame not to use this as part of this bug handling.

I'm completely at a loss with this. Firefox is not able to open eBay category lists. Clicking on the drop-down "Shop by Category", link or any of the sub-category links within the menu go nowhere except for a gateway timeout error after a number of minutes. This is incredibly inconvenient, because unless you are looking for a specific item by searching for it, you have no way to browse through categories. I don't seem to have this problem with any other website that I can think of, but since I use eBay quite regularly (daily), it has long ago gone from annoying to down right intolerable.

This isn't a problem with Safari, but I seldom use that browser preferring to use Firefox instead.

I've tried every solution I've come across. From giving permissions, turning of Firefox Enhanced Tracking, turning off any ad blockers I have. Using Troubleshoot Mode, manually turning off and on extensions, clearing history and all remnants of eBay in case of corrupt cookies or anything else for that matter. I've even lit black candles while dancing beneath a dark moon in hopes of exercising what seems to be a long resident multi-year demon. And the damn thing isn't even paying any rent!

I am on an iMac, using Catalina with everything up to date.

So, I have two questions:

1.) Does everyone else still have this problem? I've seen pages of search results on Google for this and similar issues with eBay and Firefox stemming back three or more years.

2.) If you do not have this problem, what have you done other than fixes I've listed? And if you happened to include a particular color candle and phase of the moon differing from mine even that suggestion would be appreciated. :)

I installed Firefox portable version on my computer A and B. I set up the primary password on the computer B. I found that I forgot the primary password yesterday. So, I deleted Firefox from the computer B. Afterwards, I copied and pasted the Firefox portable from the computer A to B. Everything looked fine. The primary password checkbox was unchecked, so I didn't need to worry about it.

However, when I launch Firefox on the computer B today, it asked me the primary password again. As far as I know, all data is saved in the portable folder and I don't understand why it happened. How do I solve this issue?

Recent issue, last few days. Unable to access Microsoft One Drive online without first having to Refresh Firefox each time. It is then accessible for a short period of time before the address link again breaks down into an incomplete address that does not open One Drive. I've repeated this process a number of times and each and every time the only means of access to One Drive is by Refreshing Firefox. Access to One Drive is fine on other browsers. I've cleared the cache, and run Firefox in Troubleshoot mode, but the only thing that works, and does so consistently, is to first Refresh Firefox. It will then go to the correct address for One Drive for a short period of time, before again breaking down into an incomplete forwarding address. I prefer using Firefox, but regular access to One Drive, without all these unnecessary steps, is a requirement

Apparently, yesterday at 9:03AM, Firefox download 8 blank HTM files. I have not clicked on them to see what they are. I do not know where they came from. They have random file names and when I right click to read the properties, it says zero bytes. I have already googled this question a billion different ways, but I have come up with nothing.

I have virus scanned it, but it found nothing.

I do not know where these came from. I was at work at 9:03AM yesterday, and I never download anything from random sites, and like I said, I wasn't even on my computer yesterday at that time to download anything. No one else could either, I live alone. I only just noticed this today when I checked my download folder and found 8 random files, and it says FireFox downloaded them yesterday.

I've included a picture of what it looks like. What on earth is this? And why is it microsoft edge logo? I don't even use that darn browser.

I do work that necessitates I have quite a few applications open. Often, I will slide one out of the way to get to another. It would be really great if we could pick up and slide the Firefox app anywhere along the top of the tool bar instead of just at the ends. It seems it would be such a simple fix to end something so frustrating. Just give us a little room around the open windows tabs to grab the app and slide it into or out of position.

Thanks

This problem started around version 97 (i had a break from computer and went back at v 97) but older versions still had that problem after i revert to it. i did:

  • turned hardware acceleration and recommended settings off
  • cleared cache and profile few times
  • offline and safe mode
  • restarting and reinstalling for few times
  • installing Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022 (vc_redist.x64.exe).

still hangs up.

it sometimes opens after i restarted,what can cause this?

Hello

Is there a way to find previously viewed images somewhere? I was watching an image in the Firefox browser a few days ago and now that I went back to check it again the page had been removed by the user. I assume all images that I´ve viewed has been stored somewhere on my computer? Where can I see these?

The same question goes for webpages. The image was on a webpage that I would like to view again but it was removed along with the image. Can I see whole pages that I´ve previously browsed somewhere?

I know this has been posssible in the past but it was like 10 years ago I last checked.

Thanks!
